5 Reasons Why I don’t own a TV Set

I have not owned a TV set in years.  I don’t even watch anyone else’s box often.  It’s a rare occasion to find me in front of the lighted box!

As a Christian, and a conscious individual, I cannot see how anyone can stand watching it for any period of time.  Here’s why:

1. Do you have trouble concentrating on anything for long periods of time?  If you watch TV, it may be becuase of the way the programs are set up.  Every 7 minutes or so, a set of commercials are interjected into the program you are watching.  This breaks a level of continuous focus and actually trains or conditions your mind to operate under distractions in life.

2. Once you turn on a tv and settle down in front of it, your mind goes from alpha waves ( active/concious ) to beta waves ( sedentary /unconcious ) in less than a minute.  This puts a person in a very suggestive unconcious receptive position, less likely to challenge anything it sees and records, especially since its only ‘TV’.

3. There are subliminal messages in EVERY commercial and TV program.  Think this is not true?  See the below clip for proof. Just think about the bigger picture: There are two entities that are given dominion through God’s gift to man, either the Lord himself, or the devil.  If the Lord is not in authority over a thing, then note that the devil is. If he is, then he will promote his agenda, so this shouldn’t really be surprising.

4. Have you ever noticed when your favorite show cuts to a commercial the volume goes up? No, this is not your imagination, it’s the commercials blaring their wares! This was such a complaint, that the FCC hjad to pass the CALM Act, in 2010, which stand for the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation,  This will take effect in December 2012 to make sure the volume doesn’t need to be adjusted anymore.

5. Are you noticing what is on TV in this age?  What things that are now considered ‘entertaining’ while just a few decades ago would have been an outrage?  There is a LOT of demoralizing, desenstizing, and degrading things on the channels today.  Cursing, Arguing, Disrespect, Dishonor, and a borage of ads for medications that make you worse than the symptoms they heal, just to name a few!

In examining and realizing these truths, we should be guard what we watch and hear and stay alert.  Deception only has victory when its unexpected.  That’s why Jesus said to stay awake and pray…

Give me a good book, like the BIBLE,  and some tea over television any day!



Sinner’s Prayer:

Dear Lord & Father, You are the Creator of all things and I know you created me. But I recognize I am a sinner through Adam's Fall and you sent your only Son, Jesus Christ to live, die and be raised from the dead for me. I repent of my sins and renounce all evil works and serving of other, lower, and lesser gods before thee. Come into me life and cleanse me by your Blood. Make me whole and well by your Holy Spirit. I now desire to live for you. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in all things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!

Scripture of the Month-March

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Things to consider:

Jesus never charged for His Sermons, Preaching, Healing, etc...why should we put His Anointing on books, tapes, and cds, and charge people for it? I recall How angry Jesus was when the leaders of the Church of His time altered the purpose of the temple and made it a business. Shouldn't we too, be afraid to do the same? UPDATE: a minister pointed out, He didn't have to because His own people were financing Him. They were wealthy...
