Good morning brothers and sisters. You know I really never gave much thought about what kind of movies I watch or music I listen too. Or even the books that I read. I thought that I was an adult and I could not worry about. I also tried to allow only Godly people in my inner circle. Let me just make a disclaimer right now, I am not saying that you can't watch certain movies, read certain books, or even listen to certain music. I want to be up front, what we put in our minds, controls our thoughts and our hearts. I am just stating we need to listen to the Holy Spirit, because some "Christian" things are not of Christ. We are warned in 1 Corinthians 15:33 about this. Do not be deceived: "Evil company corrupts good habits." And I always associated this scripture with people. But today, God says, "What about?" And I had to take a hard look at some of the things that take me away from God's word. What I was spending too much time on, was it getting in the way of God's word. We have to filter everything through God. We also must remember evil comes in all shapes and forms. It may not be just a person. Satan knows what he is doing and how to get you to take your eyes of Jesus. He will use whatever it takes and yes, that includes movies, music and books. But the Bible tells what to awake to. Look at verse 34- Awake to righteousness, and DO NOT SIN; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. We have to be in tune with the Holy Spirit. He will tell us what is of God and what is not. I can't tell you. So arise and wake up in righteousness. Ask Him and He will provide the answer. Rise up child of God, rise up!
