What Does the Bible Say About Watching Bad Things?

Hey there! You know, with all the stuff we can watch these days, it’s kinda tricky figuring out what’s cool and what’s not, especially if you’re trying to live by what the Bible says. Let’s break it down a bit, yeah?

What Does the Bible Say About Watching Bad Things?

1. Guarding Your Heart and Mind: Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Think of it like this: what you watch can really get into your head and heart. So, it’s wise to be picky about what you let in.

2. Steer Clear of the Bad Stuff: There’s this line in 1 Thessalonians 5:22, “Abstain from every form of evil.” Basically, if something feels off or wrong, it’s probably best to skip it. Stick to stuff that’s good for you.

3. Focus on the Good Stuff: Philippians 4:8 is all about filling your mind with good things – stuff that’s true, noble, pure, lovely, you get the idea. It’s like choosing to watch things that lift you up instead of bringing you down.

4. What You Watch Shapes You: Ever heard, “Bad company corrupts good character” from 1 Corinthians 15:33? It’s not just about who you hang out with, but also what you watch. It can shape who you are.

5. Renew Your Mind: Romans 12:2 talks about not conforming to the world but being transformed by renewing your mind. So, watching stuff that aligns with good values can actually help you grow as a person.

6. Think About Others Too: Lastly, our choices, like what we watch, can influence others around us, especially if they’re still figuring out their faith (check out 1 Corinthians 8:9-13). So, it’s cool to be a good example.

In a nutshell, the Bible doesn’t exactly chat about Netflix or YouTube, but it gives some solid advice on choosing what to watch. It’s all about picking stuff that’s good, pure, and helps you be the best you. Cool, right?

P.S. This is a Great Way to Read Your Bible!

A new Bible reading program has been released which approaches the Bible in a new and unique way than most people are used to. It offers the reader an opportunity to read all of the way through the Bible – to do it chronologically – and to do it in just a year! For people who have never done that, which includes the vast majority of people, it offers them a chance to stand out in their peer groups, and to satisfy their deep desire to please the God they serve.

It is a known fact that:

Less than 10% of all Christians have ever read the Bible all of the way through. Many have never even considered doing it, or thought it was not attainable for them.

This is a refreshing approach to the Bible. It may become the standard for this way of approaching the Bible.
