Principles for Media Choices

A Christian should conscientiously guard himself against inappropriate and questionable media. He should avoid knowingly making choices to view wicked images and behavior (Ps. 101:3; Pro. 7:24-27), conscientiously resist finding pleasure in violence (Ps. 11:5), judiciously prevent unnecessary knowledge of evil (Rom. 16:19), and diligently keep away from any association with questionable material (1 Cor. 15:33; 1 Ths. 5:22). Recognizing that a variety of media has useful purposes, the believer must be purposeful and principled in his use of appropriate media, guarding against wasted time, unnecessary temptations, and inconsiderate offences (Ps. 90:12; Pro. 4:23-27; Eph. 5:15-17; 1 Cor. 10:12-13; 1 Pt. 5:8).

    Yes, we need to guard against media. At the end though, what one must guard himself is not ultimately the media or the technology, but rather it is the heart. If the heart has a temptation, then no barriers or rules will be able to stop it. A choice to live with a clean heart will lead to right choices of using media.
