TV Or Not TV?
I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:
I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
"...Walter [Olsen] believed
the greatest curse of excessive and indiscriminate
TV viewing was that it 'burned all the feeling out of a boy and made him an
emotion-drained robot before he was hardly into his teens.' "
from God's Viking by Nolan F. Balman, p. 145.
One couple "...made a New Year's resolution
to turn off the television,
avoiding shows that feature sex and violence. They say they sure miss watching the news."
Burton Hillis [from Better Homes and Gardens, February, 1997, p. 212.]
message has always been that the need for truth,
wisdom and world peace pales by comparison with
the need for a toothpaste that offers whiter teeth and fresher breath." --

Have You Been
Here is some important information about the Walt Disney company. If you think that they are all right for kids or that you'll pick and choose what you use and view from them, please, think again. This article will tell you what they stand for:
We maintain that Disney has had a serious problem for years and has never been a good source of entertainment for children. Consider nothing more than the early title "The Sourcer's Apprentice". Acts 8:9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. This scripture describes quite well the attitude toward Disney that many Christians have had. Although not calling it the power of God, they have certainly been bewitched by Disney's sorcery.

It's Official: To Protect Baby's Brain, Turn off TV
Research finds that eating dinner together in front of
TV is counter-productive also. It does not promote
building relationships and healthful family
interaction despite being together.
Turn off the TV and eat dinner with the family.
