Television and being safe
Can television become a form of idolatry? I am not so sure though anything can be made into a God. Idolatry is a sin that can take away the time to develop a greater relationship with God. That is what has happened to me. Television I don't believe has become a form of idolatry, yet I find myself doing "research" on what I watch and not it is because it may be godly entertainment. I am not sure if I can watch tv because of the content that scares me. I am wondering about that. There are television shows that I am just drawn to that I don't usually watch otherwise. Then there are shows that I avoid altogether because I am afraid of the content producing spikes. I wish I didn't have those fears. I avoid watching television shows or movies. It isn't that I have made the decision, but it is like the OCD has made the decisions and that is sad. Maybe it is best if I were to turn the television off. All I know is that I can and need to do something about it. I don't wish for the OCD to determine what I should do. Now if only I can fight this bully called OCD. What am I supposed to do?
