Television shows!

There is a lot of rubbish on TV and I watch very little of it.

I tend to watch pre-recorded shows, which sometimes are on late, hence the pre-recording.

Some of the reality shows are just bizarre and I couldn’t bear to waste my precious time watching them and don’t get me started on series such as Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead or Vikings, or even shows like Harry Potter.

However there are many people who love these shows and can give you an episode by episode rundown.

As an adult and Christian I make a decision on what I watch and what I choose not to watch — however what is on my list may vary from other Christians to what is considered suitable. I enjoy British crime, but I know that others think that this genre is very unsuitable.

But the most important thing is that we are not compelled to watch anything and have the power to turn off the TV, not own a TV and not go to the movies to watch a particular film.

No one is forcing us to watch anything.

I am not going to sit in judgment of others who make different choices to me, they will have to answer to God when the time comes. However, we all should have this verse firmly in our minds when we make our chose, whether that be a film, TV series, book or the company we keep:

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
