TV Can Take Control Your Mind
Something called subliminal advertising was tried on TV years ago. They flashed fleeting or hidden images on the screen. They were not perceived by your conscious mind but they WERE perceived by your subconscious mind and affected your thinking and your actions. I wonder how much of it is still going on. In our time, the TV is not that subtle anymore. I don*t think Satan would give up a practice that was so successful. I have learned that I have more time, I enjoy the presence of the Lord more, I think better thoughts and I get more done for the Lord when I don*t turn it on. I do not want the TV controlling me. I want the Lord controlling me.
Psalms 101:3: I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
I believe that the Lord has given me some questions to ask myself before I turn the TV on. Will I set some wicked thing before my eyes? Will I watch some evil thing that will cleave to me? Do I want to hear something from the Lord or something from Satan? Is the Lord going to speak to me through the TV or will Satan feed me some spiritual poison? Will I find something wholesome or helpful on the TV? Or will I watch something that will desensitize me to the Lord? Will I learn some truth or hear some lies? Will I watch something that will blur the differences between right and wrong? I don*t think it is an exaggeration to say that over 90 percent of TV programming is under the control of Satan. He will put every wicked thing he possibly can before our eyes.
