It sure is nice to type and publish/post webpages on the internet instead of writing a boring book or tedious-semantics column in a newspaper: I can go back and correct my frequent pathetic and embarrassing mistakes of misspelling and other deficiencies.
Welcome to what hopefully will be a pictures-free-but-safe pseudo-adults-oriented non-boring essay on this internet webpost.
As you, as my beloved yet understandably generally non-responsive readership, might surmise, the topic title of "No More TV" could have instead or also been named: "No More Internet."
THAT would be "throwing the [proverbial] baby out with the [proverbial] bathwater" - reminding us all of:
First Corinthians 5:8 (paraphrased) Let us, therefore, celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of [feminist-sexism/homosexuality/apostasy-based] malice and [screen-advertiser-greed-for-profit-by-imposing-attention-getting-but-irritating-and-noxious-female-immodesty] evil, but with the unleavened bread of [female-human chignon-or-back-of-head-ponytailed non-mopheaded/non-sleevesless/non-slacksless/non-soxless] sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote to you in my letter to not associate with immoral men [and women, imposing mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/soxless images on TV and internet screens];
10 not at all meaning the [female-human mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/soxless] immoral of this world, or the greedy [female-misattire-flaunting advertisers] and [sexual-purity-of-sight] robbers, or [female-human mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/soxless] idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. [to Walmart-less dry and dusty thin-atmosphere Mars or worse Titan, of Jupiter]
11 But rather I wrote to you to not associate with any one who bears the name of brother [or sister] if he/she is guilty of [imposing mopheadedness/sleeveslessness/slackslessness/soxlessness] immorality or greed, or is a [female-human mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/soxless] idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber....not even to eat with such a one.
12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?
13 God judges those outside. "Drive out the [female-human mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/soxless] wicked person from among you."
Becoming hooked on TV watching starting with "only a little bit for a while" and then invariably succombing to more is like hearing the defiant, stupid, and senseless remark: "He (or she) finally lost [their] courageous battle with cancer" - which is like saying "He (or she) finally lost [their] courageous battle with Satan."
The antidote for such lunacy is:
Exodus 14:14 The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be still."
Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
God's ingrained power to heal the human body trusting in and obeying Him while depending upon His strength and help to prevent and recover is phenomenal, but it is not known if then when The New England Journal of Medicine and St Jude's Children's Hospital will investigate the ramifications of the above two verses, and take them to heart.
Now, obviously, there would be (and would have been) - too bad that I, at this point, can no longer say "is" - much of interest and value to view on both air-waved and cable broadcasting, and (almost) even on The Web.
Ecclesiastes 10:1 (paraphrased) [Female-human mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/soxless-images-of-TV] dead flies make the perfumer's ointment give off an evil odor; so a little [female-human mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/soxless] folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
That is another way of saying what was stated above in First Corinthians 5:8-13. It might behoove the reader to re-read it now.
I would assume that you, my beloved (whom I am plainly patronizing in order to retain your avid attention and loyalty), as with me, consider that playing russian roulette with a loaded pistol would make both of us very nervous, and thus such would ultimately "be too rich for our blood."
It is not known how the word "roulette" was associated with the word "russian." Perhaps some anti-pinko communist-hater coined it. Maybe some Nazi.
At any rate, the game works by a person loading one or more (but less than six) bullets into a six-chamber revolver, spinning the cylinder, holding the pistol to his or her head, and pulling the trigger. If he or she thereafter remains lucky by not blowing their brains out on the first try, they then can try for a second chance. If they dare.
Such is virtually the case with watching the hopelessly-polluted programming on TV broadcasts (whether air-waved or cable).
Will they ever change for the better? Will gas-pump prices ever go down below $2.50 a gallon with Bobama in charge? Will demoncrats ever become a minority in the U.S. Senate? Will maryolatrous/purgatorial/apocryphal catholics ever change into non-feminist/non-homosexual Protestants, and vice-versa? Will anti-Zionist "palestinians" ever lovingly embrace Israeli Jews?
Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also you can do good who are accustomed to do evil.
Thank God for image-free radio broadcasts, although listening audiences even there are besieged with incessant abusive segments of female feminists flapping their insolent and arrogant jaws with belligerent sexy-vomit voice sounds for both news updates and commercials.....not exactly a sacred application of:
Song of Solomon 2:14 Oh my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your face is attractive.
Realistically, the probably-non-admitted and/or perhaps-subconscious end side-effect product and demented purpose for all the enticing and suggestive quasi-indecent female loose-long-haired mopheadedness, naked-armed sleeveslessness, nude-legged slackslessness, and soxlessness in sandals or flipflops on all TV programming (and even somewhat here-and-there on the internet)....especially terroristic-sudden-attack, non-specified/indefinite-periods-of-duration commercials interrupting main programs such as TV movies....is promoting "birthday-suit"-naked fornication, adultery, sodomy, and prostitution.
And, although paid porn on Comcast [airing "free-sample" XX but not XXX brothel-ranch porn episodes on MAX] and other webhosters is available, much absolutely-free downloadable-and-saveable-to-flashdrive R-to-XXX porn is available on the Web, although once in a while the porn peruser's browser is locked by some weird "FBI Warning" whatever, requiring complete computer shutdown and restart. Until then, one's investigative exploration for porn by Google or Dogpile choice-keywords-typed-in-searchboxes-assisted direction to such sources as femjoy.com is fully culminated for covert and lustful, non-reproductive/extinction-headed, masturbational purposes.
With that in mind, we are also reminded of our Christian duty:
First Peter 4:3 Let the time that is past suffice for doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in [female loose-long-haired mopheadedness, naked-armed sleeveslessness, nude-legged slackslessness, and soxlessness in sandals or flipflops] licentiousness, passions, drunkenness, revels, carousing, and lawless [female-human mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/soxless] idolatry.
We saints know what has been there (and most likely yet is available), and we are obligated by the Holy Spirit to mind what was stated to the angel of the Church of Thyatira:
Revelation 2:24 But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak, I will put on you no other burden.
25 But that which you have, hold fast until I come.
26 And he who overcomes and keeps My works to the end, to [him] I will give power over the nations.
27 And [he] will rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of a potter they will be broken to pieces, even as I received from My Father.
28 And I will give [him] the Morning Star.
29 [He] who has an ear, let [him] hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
It is not in our best interest, nor anyone else's, for those who survive us to discover that we (the presumably-holy deceased) actually left a grand assortment of hidden-away porn on hard drives, CDs, or flashdrives.
In order for us not-yet-deceased to insure that that is what will be, steps have to be taken now (before it is too late) to not allow ourselves to be seduced with step-by-step semi-lewd poisoning by the subtle-serpent-like plethora of myriad partial-porn images assaulting our eyesight on especially live air-waved-and-cable-broadcast TV.
To view pre-recorded videos we are familiar with, have edited, and know where to stop, skip, then resume watching, is one thing.
But non-discriminately watching non-censored TV (and even internet) is ultimately the same as playing russian roulette, and such sins will have diabolically-dire consequences (believe it or not, and it is even difficult for yours truly to fathom, comprehend, understand, and imagine the totality of the consequences of the relentless perpetual onslaught of semi-porn TV images) temporally and eternally.
NO one should irresponsibly pride himself or herself in being "the fastest gun in the West" and claim the ability to always successfully switch (with remote control in hand) to another channel before and instead of being visually assaulted with porn female hairstyle or body-parts exposure on TV and elsewhere within practically every serial episode, movie, and commercial on TV. NO one is capable of having such inerrant "reasonable-probable-cause" intuition to compete against deceptive and insidious instantaneous and non-announced video switching.
Does such seem like unlawful and illegal "hate" and "intolerance?"
So be it, but without the "unlawful" and "illegal" aspect:
Luke 12:57 And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?
Acts 10:35 ...but in every nation any one who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to Him.
Romans 7:18 For I know that nothing good resides within me, that is, in my sin-oriented flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it.
Second Corinthians 13:7 But we pray God that you may not do wrong.....not that we may appear to have met the test, but that you may do what is right, though we may seem to have failed.
James 4:17 Whoever knows what is right to do and fails to do it, for him/her it is sin.
First Peter 3:13 Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is right?
14 But even if you do suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled,
15 but in your hearts reverence Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence;
16 and keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are abused, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.
17 For it is better to suffer for doing right, if that should be God's will, than for doing wrong.
We must be brave. Our temporal well-being and eternal destiny depends upon it. And to Hell with nay-sayers:
Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with wise men becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Romans 16:17 I appeal to you, brethren, to take note of those who create dissensions and difficulties, in opposition to the doctrine which you have been taught; avoid them.
First Corinthians 16:22 If any one has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come!
Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed.
Galatians 1:9 As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed.
Ephesians 5:7 Therefore do not associate with them...
First Timothy 6:20 Oh Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge...
Second Timothy 2:14 Remind them of this, and charge them before the Lord to avoid disputing about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers.
2:16 Avoid such godless chatter, for it will lead people into more and more godlessness...
3:5 holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people.
Second John 1:8 Look to yourselves, that you may not lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward.
9 Any one who goes ahead and does not stay in the doctrine of Christ does not have God; he who stays in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son.
10 If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into the house [nor watch him or her nor his nor hers on TV nor on the internet or wherever] or give him/her any greeting;
11 for he who greets him/her shares his/her wicked work.
Divine segregation and quarantine is in order:
Second Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with disbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
15 What accord has Christ with the Deceiver? Or what has a believer in common with a disbeliever?
16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, "I will live in them and move among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 "Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them," says the Lord, "and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you,
18 and I will be a father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters," says the Lord Almighty.
