You are what you eat... You are what you see!

You often hear the saying, “You are what you eat”. I believe this is also true of you are what you watch. There are so many movies now that have raunchy sex scenes in them and nothing is even thought about it. We are called as Christians to stand out against the world. I will be honest that I am not that careful about the movies I watch. I am more against the violence and cursing, but just as much as that we need to be aware of the sex scenes or even sexual jokes. I was informed the other day that the way our mind registers what we see is as if we are experiencing it our self. I forget the technical terms for it, but the point is that we enjoy watching stuff like that because it makes us feel good. Is this a good thing? Personally I find it hard to watch a hot sex scene and feel as if there is no hint of sexual impurity in it. So this may be a short post, but I want to challenge you to be careful what you watch! You may have saved everything for your future husband, but if you are watching inappropriate things then in reality you are not saving everything. It is just a thought!

Good post.

The majority of people have definitely become desensitized to what is in movies these days.
The boundaries have constantly been pushed further and further.

Even look at kids' movies and you'll see so much that wouldn't have been tolerated two decades ago.
