Should Christians see a movie in a theater or not?  2 Peter 1:3 says, “His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue”.  So, Phillip Telfer directs us back to the scriptures to help us as we consider how to answer that question ourselves.

A dripping faucet can lead to thousands of gallons of wasted water in a single year.  Sending a quick text message or checking email doesn’t seem harmful, but is there a point when it is?

Our children are growing up in a world where media access is prevalent and often unfiltered.  Even if your family computer has all of the appropriate protections, their ability to view questionable content is just a library and a click away.  What can parents do to protect them?  Is there anything that will help them as they grow up and leave the security of your watchful eye?

We don’t think of our culture as idolatrous because we don’t see people bowing down to statues and making sacrifices and offerings to false gods. Our understanding of idolatry is too narrow and our understanding of true worship is also becoming more and more confused. This episode looks at mankind’s tendency towards idolatry which continues to manifest itself in our entertainment driven society.
