Hello brothers & sisters!
It's been a while since I've been on here, but I get some of the best advice on here, so I'm always coming back.
As you all know, this modern era revolves so much around technology. While you can use the internet for a number of diff things, I think TV is different. It's practically the norm to be a netflix junkie or to religiously watch tv shows, movies, etc. It's not something blatantly bad; in fact, most of my church friends/acquaintances, in addition to my other school friends, have a habit of watching tv. I've recently had a lot of time on my hands and I've gotten so attached to watching tv online--from movies to tv shows. That would be okay if it weren't for the fact that I can see how much the devil uses this against us. The devil weaves his ungodliness very subtly in the programs and sitcoms we watch. Even something so simple as a brief kissing or sex scene shows you how humanity has abused their sexuality. Watching tv is also a great way to escape the real world, so much so that the more I watch, the less in touch I feel with the true world and God's truth.
Please help me and share your thoughts!! This is something that is never really addressed, perhaps because it's such a normal behavior. I'm having trouble giving this habit up because I don't feel like it's bad i guess. I guess I feel that just because we're not monks or nuns, we can live worldy lives because we live in the world.
Please share your thoughts.
-your sister in Christ
