03/10/118 Weekend Grif.Net – The 23rd Channel

[This small tract is dated 1958, but came across it =
recently cleaning out a file and it seemed right up-to-date. Don’t know =
to whom credit belongs.]

 

THE =
23rd CHANNEL

 

The =
T.V. set is my shepherd; my spiritual growth shall =
want.

 

It maketh me to sit down and do nothing for His =
name’s sake, because it requireth my spare time.  It keepeth me =
from doing my duty as a Christian because it presenteth so many good =
shows that I must see.

 

It =
restoreth my knowledge of the things of this evil world, and keepeth me =
from the study of God’s word. 

 

It =
leadeth me in the paths of failing to attend church, and allows me to do =
nothing in the Kingdom of God.

 

Yea, =
though I live to be a hundred, I shall keep on viewing my T.V. as long =
as it will work, for it is my closest companion.  Its sound and its =
picture, they comfort me.

 

It =
presenteth entertainment before me, and keepeth me from doing important =
things with my family.  It fills my head with ideas that differ =
from those set forth in the Word of God.

 

Surely =
no good thing will come of my life, because my T.V. offereth me no good =
time to do the will of God; thus I will dwell in the place of shame and =
sorrow forever.
