Our comfort comes at the price of our children.

We as parents can get surprisingly comfortable with the excessive cussing, explicate tv, horrific violence, and complete lack of a sense of right and wrong in the mainstream media. But our comfort comes at the price of our children.

 I read a quote some time back from the president of MTV. He said, “We don’t target the 14-16 year-olds. We own the 14-16 year-olds.” I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my kids to belong to MTV. I want them to belong to the Lord.

 If our city announced they were introducing chemicals into our drinking water that would stunt our children’s physical growth, we’d go crazy! Yet we will allow the popular culture to introduce ideas and behaviors into our child’s mind that stunts their moral development.

 The ultimate filter must be the parent.
