TOPIC: WHAT ARE YOUR CHILDREN WATCHING?
TEXT: PSALMS 103:3 “Who forgives all your iniquities,who heals all your diseases…..”
Today over half of all children between the ages of nine and seventeen have Internet cable or satellite television access in their bedrooms. The old image of the family gathered around a single TV set in the living room is almost non-existent. Instead, the kids are off by themselves where they can choose anything they want to see. Indeed, they don’t even have to be in their bedroom because now they can access it all on a hand-held device like an Android tablet or an iPhone. One prominent social researcher put it this way: ‘Almost everything children are seeing is essentially going into their minds in some sort of uncensored or unfiltered way.’ Under the ‘freedom of expression’ rule, the government and the courts permit cable and Internet to peddle explicit sex, violence, nudity and profanity to our children, wards,siblings and your grandchildren. Are you concerned? You should be! Why do sheep need a shepherd? For the same reason children need loving and observant parents and not wolves that are consumed using there eyes to view all kind of evil as a means of gratifying there lust and desire for perverted pleasure and destruction!
Definitely your ignorance of technology is no defence! Inasmuch you weren’t exposed to these evils growing up doesn’t guarantee that your children won’t get hooked on them. Many parents don’t even take the time to know what their children,ward and siblings are watching! Don’t be one of them. Parents,what are your children, wards, grandchildren, teenagers and youths watching? Have you been made one with Christ and indwelt by the Holy Spirit? Guard the heart and eyes of your life and Family members from viewing or being entertained by things that God Regard as vile. Rom 1:32.
