Lately Jeff and I have really been struggling with the issues of appropriateness of our television, movie, DVD, Music viewing. Now don't get me wrong, we certainly don't watch or listen to things which are inappropriate or offensive. We check movie ratings and try to find things that we feel are okay to watch. But even ratings can be misleading and our society is really letting things slide. PG now means nudity and swearing and M ratings can basically show whatever they like!
We've found it a real struggle to hire or go to the movies lately and I just don't think it will get any easier either. We live in a world that is filled with sin and we just can't get away from it. But at home group this week I brought up this topic and Rachel direct me to a website. http://www.pluggedinonline.com/ It gives reviews of movies, DVDs, tv shows, music and games. It is a great tool for any Christian before seeing something your unsure about.
I honestly believe we all need to have a good look at ourselves as Christians and decide what is right for us to be viewing. Reading Romans 14 is a really good ideas because its defiantly a faith issues, but one that everyone needs to pray about. The world we live in might be sliding but let's not all lose the standards that God intends us to have.
