Jottings – Countercultural

Jottings

I am not suggesting a new legalism which forbids TV and the cinema. (There are many worthwhile things to view; moreover, while Christianity is by nature countercultural, it is not anti-cultural.) But I am calling for believers to take control of their minds – what comes in and what goes out. If you cannot control what you watch and read, perhaps it needs to go. ‘If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away’ says Jesus (Matthew 5:29)”
