What Do You See?

party 9 - quote

Years ago, I remember folks talking about subliminal messages on television. I think they were actually happening, but I don’t know that for certain. The premise was that an advertiser would flash a message or image on the screen for a split second—one we didn’t even realize we’d seen—and we would react by wanting to purchase the product that had entered our subconscious mind.

Today, they’ve moved well beyond subliminal tactics and now blatantly advertise, and display in programs, every possible deviance and product. The trend continues to escalate, and it seems nothing is taboo. Sex, violence, and decadence of every kind is being shown on almost every channel. The worst part of this is we are becoming numb to it. What’s the solution? Don’t watch.

We are in charge of what we watch. A little mindless entertainment is one thing, but a constant diet of it is quite another matter. The old saying, “you are what you eat”, can also apply to our minds. As regards “entertainment”, we are what we watch. What we allow into our minds can shape who we are.

Those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh; but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. Romans 8:5
