“Television has proven to be a monstrous beast of evil, with the power to persuade, deceive, and control the thinking of most Americans. It makes celebrities out of villains, while evil is made to look good. It promotes violence, immorality, hate, and depravity, while at the same time accepting no blame or responsibility for the consequences of what it has accomplished in destroying lives, families, and our nation. We are truly living in ‘perilous times,’ with TV promoting evolution, humanism, and every conceivable form of evil corruption that denies the truth of God. Unfortunately Christians who are not prepared and alert to the spiritual warfare are being deceived along with the ungodly.”
