With God’s commands from scripture, the Narrow Road follower of Jesus needs to evaluate everything that they look at or focus their minds upon. And since America has become a culture that communicates and interacts through media instead of personal contact, we need to question and evaluate the morality of this section of our lives. We now make decisions, purchases, build relationships, and establish our opinions and beliefs on what we see and watch. But God demands His followers to make these choices based on His commands.
So what makes a media creation good? Is one television program good and another evil? Does a certain song have lyrics that make it wrong for a narrow road believer to listen to? What about a best selling novel? By what standards can a Christian establish and make sure they are pleasing the Lord Jesus and not angering Him in this area of life? Are there Biblical principles that move this conversation away from opinions and into a holy Biblical life of obedience?
“Take no part in and have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds and enterprises of darkness, but instead [let your lives be so in contrast as to] expose and reprove and convict them. For it is a shame even to speak of or mention the things that [such people] practice in secret.” [Eph 5:11-12 (AMP)]
