Quotes (316)

piper-pic.jpg Turn [the TV] off! It isn’t necessary for relevance. It is a deadly place to rest the mind. You are least capable of critical interaction. Its pervasive banality, sexual innuendo and God-ignoring values have no ennobling effect upon the human soul. It kills the Spirit. It drives away God. It quenches prayer. It blanks out the Bible. It cheapens the soul. It destroys spiritual power. It defiles almost everything.

    Fact is, we don’t need to be told we should dump the tv, we know.

    We sit in front of it day after day, feeding the flesh while the spirit slowly dies.

    We can spend hours in front of the tv, yet be bored after struggling through one chapter of the Bible.

    But it is a god that the Christian worships and will find excuses to justify their worship of it.

    I don’t want to be sat in front of the tv when Jesus returns.

  2. Many upstanding Christian families would never allow their family to go places or take them where they will see things, hear things, and experience things that are wicked. But for some reason they have no problem sitting in front of the TV and allowing all that stuff they’d never engage in come right into their home.

    I guess it’s justified in their eyes as “entertainment.”

    No, it’s rebellion! Quit making excuses and cut the lifeline.

    I own a TV, but I use it to watch preaching DVDs and the occasional football [or soccer] game and that’s about it. Parking yourself in front of the TV is spiritual suicide, especially when you’re 17 years old.
