Watch what you watch
CAROLINE L. BELTRAN, Baguio City

Someone asked this question: Is your living room the site of daily murders, brutal killings, sexual abuses and harassments, wars on drugs, and drug addiction, etc?

All these things happen in homes if we watch many of the programs on TV. This is not late-breaking news. The moral content of television has been declining for years. However, that does not mean we have to go down with it.

Do you ever feel that society is whirling out of control? I feel that way sometimes when I read about what’s on television. I say “read about” because I do not want to see most of what’s on.

TV talk shows have gone down to the extent of bringing young people to talk shamelessly about their sexual exploits. Prime-time comedy programs are now filled with sexual innuendo and immorality.

We may not be able to do much about TV programs, but we can do something from a personal perspective. Let’s take a view at our viewing habits.

In Psalm 119 verse 37 of the Bible, the psalmist said: “Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things.” That is a verse worth posting over our TV sets.

Honor God with our viewing habits. When it comes to entertainment, watch what you watch. God’s words, not the world, control what we can see.
