Dear Phillip,

Thanks for the newsletter. One thing I’ve been learning recently in regards to media is that one danger that often goes unnoticed is simply “godless thinking.” I can watch a show, commercial, or movie with blatant sin in it and quickly recognize that it’s something that displeases God.

Yet, I wonder if we recognize the danger of thinking in such a way that completely ignores God. We view TV shows and watch movies about people living their lives, making decisions, deciding what to believe, and commenting on various aspects of life–without one thought that includes God.

As we view these shows, it teaches us how to think in such a way that doesn’t include God. There’s no one searching His word to find guidance in making a decision in life. There’s no one asking God what He thinks about a given situation. Is this how we should think? Well, what does our Father have to say?

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
(Proverbs 3:5-6).

In Jesus,
