I think we have three basic choices in regard to media.
1. Avoid it altogether
2. Use modern media but do so with Godly discernment
3. Accept any or all modern media
My objections to number 1... avoiding media is practically impossible...we would miss many of the good things we can gain through media....we would fail to teach our children how to live honorably in the midst of using media
Number 2 is obviously the "right answer" :) but it's not without its challenges. Using Godly discernment and scriptural principles doesn't make our decision-making an easy task. This path will take us down many difficult struggles as we try to makes sense of what God desires and how to apply that practically to media. But if this is the path we've chosen, I believe we must struggle with this, we must seek God's Word and principles to make our decisions. It's not a road for laziness or apathy.
Number 3 is an option that I believe many of us have chosen without even realizing it. We may mentally have the "right answer" but in practical living we've chosen the easy way...taking in whatever is popular, exciting, well-done, or entertaining without considering what God would think about it, without considering that we are to have the mind of Christ and put off the old man of flesh.
Okay...so I haven't exactly answered the questions in my last post. I still want to do that because I think it's an important foundation and God's Word does address these questions.
