Good point Pam, not to mention the immodesty, with four boys we are EVER so careful with that, even checking out in the family friendly checkout line at the store there is big time smut! I worry much about my boys and what they are seeing, even though we do EVERYTHING we can to keep them from it. We used to live in a university town, now the Lord has moved us out of town a ways, praise the Lord, it has helped. Liz

However, when passing through the livingroom enroute to other rooms, I have gotten glimpses of commercials, etc. where I saw things that I know are being used to brain wash people into accepting things.
Now first let me state, I'm not picking on you sister Pam, just taking an opportunity to point out a POWERFUL truth.
When I was in Bible College a music minister from a BIG TIME IFB church came to teach us students about church music. He gave an illustration about the power of music, but I have seen it more over the years as an illustration pointing out the power of TELEVISION.
He told about an unusually great follow-up visit he had with a couple that had visited the church. He was SO HAPPY, as he left, he kind of, lept from the last step onto their walkway to the driveway and the mental image reminded him of a (here we go,) LEGGS stocking commercial and he began to sing the gingle, OUT LOUD.
What he watched, even though he was a fundamentally conservative Baptist man, and a minister, affected the way he acted. How are the things caught as one walks by affecting their daily life?
Learn to know Christ and him crucified. Learn to sing to him, and say, "Lord Jesus, you are my righteousness, I am your sin. You have taken upon yourself what is mine and given me what is yours. You have become what you were not so that I might become what I was not." --Martin Luther
