Self–control with remote control
CAROLINE L. BELTRAN, Baguio City

Nowadays, talk shows have sunk to such depth that TV hosts are bringing young people to talk shamelessly about their sexual exploits.

In the past years, prime-time comedy programs would never allow a hint of profanity or showing no respect for God or holy things. TV shows are now filled with sexual insinuation about persons or things and immorality.

I read about a TV program called “family hour” which was monitored by netizens. The following conclusions were revealed. There was decreasing respect for parental authority and traditional values. The deterioration of standards has been most noticeable in two areas – language and sexual content.

We may not be able to do much about TV programs, but we can certainly do something from a personal perspective, we can take a look at our viewing habits. We can evaluate whether we have become desensitized to what we see or hear.

We can let God’s Word, not the world, control what we see. Ephesians 4:17 clearly declares: “With the Lord’s authority, live no longer as the Gentiles do, for they are hopelessly confused.” That is the best way to gain control of the tube.

Psalm 119: 37 instructs us: “Turn away our eyes from looking at worthless things.” This is a wonderful verse to post over our TV set. Has your TV taken too much control? The Bible is the best TV guide.
