Protect your eyes and ears from sin

Eyes and ears, the gateway for demonic spirits
Thomas H Czech

What you watch on TV or on the computer can be the gateway to demonic spirits. It is extremely important to be aware of what you allow into your spirit by what you watch and/or do on the computer, and even by what you read. This also includes what you take in by your ears, this means by what you listen to and hear.
If for instance you watch vampire shows or read such books, this will give the enemy permission to enter your body, soul and mind. Since these types of shows are demonic.
The same goes for shows that are sexually explicit, violent or use course language. The question that comes to mind is “why?” If you are a follower of Christ, why would you want to watch or read such un-Godly things? This is what the term hypocrite and hypocrisy would be a perfect definition of. (Hypocrisy: the false claim to or pretence of having admirable principles, beliefs, or feelings. Hypocrite: somebody who pretends to have admirable principles, beliefs, or feelings but behaves otherwise; charlatan or fraud [Microsoft word definition])
Now the term Christian is a person who is a follower of Christ, this means a person who lives his/her life according to the word of God and the teaching of His Son Jesus Christ.
Would Jesus say, “I am proud of you”, if you watch such shows/movies, read such books, or even go on such websites?
There are many worldly and un-Godly things out there; we need to distinguish between what is right and what is wrong, without trying to justify it. Be honest.
There is no reason to say when all Christians are gone from this earth and you are left behind that you are left behind to bring others to Christ, do not lie to yourself. The reason you are left behind is because you were not a Christian, blameless or sinless on that day. 2 Corinthians 13:5 (New King James Version )5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.There is not much time left, we are in the end times. You still have time to give yourself whole-heartedly to Christ and rid yourself of things of this world. Make your choice now, because if you are lukewarm He will say, away from me, I never knew you. Matthew 7:21-23 (New King James Version) 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Is this how you want Jesus Christ to see you? Are you prepared to throw your salvation away for a mere TV show, movie, book or computer web site? Are those things worth more than your salvation? Worldly entertainment now or eternity with God? The decision should not be a difficult one to make.

      Thanks for your comment. It is true that being an obedient Christian is not always easy, this is why it is so important to keep Jesus as your focus and to keep His promisses close as well. Thank you and God Bless you.

      I see my End times hub is next to this one..this is good cause that hub affirms what you have said..

      Your hub although has struck a chord in me...yes..the choosing part..when a man/woman has to choose between his/her own independence and/or being handed over into the Hands of God for Him to do with you as He please...the reward is exceedingly great..but to make that constant choice day by day...is a heavy Cross to bare...God's Will is not always glits and glamor..those who think so do not fully understand how God raised His very own Son by hardships and how Jesus by suffering learned how to be obedient unto death..

      Thanks for this hub..many blessings to you.. :)

      Thanks for your kind words. It is very important to speak the truth and to be honest with one self. I have lost some readers on my twitter, I think it is because I post truth as you do with your hubs. I read your Hallowee'en hub and was encouraged by it. Christians need to lift one another up, especialy this day and age.

      Anyhow, keep up the great work you do with your writing and your strong faith in God. God bless you and your family.

      Thanks for the warning Thomas. Christians have become so complacent to the things of this world that many do not see the dangers in participating in things that are against God. If they could only see into the spirit world and see that by doing these things they are opening doors to demonic spirits, maybe they think twice before doing some of the things they do. I tried to warn others with my Halloween hub yesterday and instead I lost a couple of readers. Sometimes people do not want to hear these things because they don't like anyone to point out to them that what they are doing is wrong but I always say “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear” (Mat 11:15). Another great hub Thomas!
