My T.V. is the internet. I spend way too much time on it
Quote:
Proverbs 27:20 ...........the eyes of man are never satisfied

I have at many times tried to set limits and it still wins. I have even tried to get rid of it. The Summer/Fall seasons and when I am at work are the only times when I am not on it as much. I think it has alot to do with loneliness and boredom. If it's not the internet, it's the Television. When I was poor and I didn't have any of these things, I sinned pretty well without them. Damned if you do, damned if you don't!

I have come to the conclusion that the idol is in the heart for that particular instrument. So if the stronghold is removed so is the pull towards that 'thing'. Instead of it dominating me, I dominate it. I know several people who use the internet wisely, of course they have their problems in other areas but the internet is not one of them.

Instead of the body of sin dominating us, we dominate it. We still live in the body of sin, yet it does not control us, we control it, or better yet, the holy Spirit has subdued the outworking of the law of sin and death in our lives.

In my younger years, I would throw out porn magazines only to go searching for them later. I have gotten rid of the internet only to get reconnected later on. I have subscribed to porn channels on T.V. only the next day cancel it. Getting rid of it didn't seem to help at all, something has to change within me.

When I was gambling my pay away, sitting there I began to weep bitterly before the LORD to save me. The very next day, the pull towards those machines was gone, I have not touched one for over 12 years, and will not again for God has delivered me. He has delivered me from other nasty habits. And I know that the Internet is not the problem, there are deep rooted problems that need to come to the surface, to which I am currently experiencing.

I have often felt that the passage that tells us not to make provision for the flesh to fulfill it's lust is very practical. The thing about certain sins is that they are really a perversion of a good natural desire. The desire will be there no matter what we do- it is natural. It is God given. the challenge comes about when we begin to subject those good natural desires to bad means of fulfilling them. This is why the internet continues to be a potential source of sin, I think, for almost anyone. You really, really, have to be careful.

For about 4 years I installed in my home, SkyAngel satelite system. All you need is a dish network receiver pointed the right direction and call www.skyangel.com and give them your billing info and bingo, your on, you have 24/7 Christ center television. Hallmark movies which I hardly ever watch. Of course there is some false teaching on SkyAngel as all TV, but after one is saved and indwelled with the Spirit and stays in the Word he should soon discern who and what to watch. There is as much danger being deceived in church TV program services as anywhere, maybe more, but with skyangel you don't have to fight the shorts skirts and underwear advertisements and all the garbage that is on mainstream TV. They even have Christian News Channel and several christian music channels and if you want to hear some mainstream, they even have Foxnews channel. At a price 15 dollars a month after you buy your receiver. I think I paid 179.00 for the disk and the receiver and no contract. They have even a cheaper price if you pay an annual fee. I also have local stations that I turn on for severe wheather and nascar when available. But I an on/off switch for all.

My wife and I also watch and listen to many video and audio sermons with our DSL. We listen to many of the audio sermons on SI. We have much more good selections than we have time to use. God is so good.
