Brother John and others – if any of you feel inclined to answer and discuss, I want to pose this question: What level of Babylon do you feel is appropriate to let into your life, your home, and to partake of? As I have progressed spiritually over the years I am led to try and cast out every ounce of Babylon that is within my control – including and especially TV, media, music, etc. Of course I don’t put any absolutes on my family members, meaning that my children can watch some shows/movies if they are wholesome. Personally I usually do not have time to watch even wholesome TV. The couple hours of free time I have per day I am prone to spend on spiritual study. But I pose this question because I see so many saints and family members moderately or heavily partaking in Babylon and not seeing anything wrong with it when balanced against their daily prayers, scriptures, and weekly Church and temple attendance. What do you think is appropriate? Living in the world can sure be hard at times.
This really is a weighty matter. It is something we all face, and which most of us over-indulge in. I have an opinion on this subject, but want to hear your thinking before I share mine.
What say you?
