In 1977, American Family Association was started to combat network television's growing negative influence on society. The mission was to encourage Christians to protect themselves and their families from the constant bombardment of sex, violence, and profanity coming over the public airwaves.

Sadly, the four major television networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX) are spewing more filth than ever before.

It's nearly impossible to find a clean, wholesome, family-friendly program on any of the networks. In fact, the current network offerings are obsessed with pushing an agenda that is insulting to Christian families and often presents sin as casual and acceptable.

For example, just this week, NBC broadcast one of the most offensive and sexually repulsive segments ever during its New Year's Eve coverage. The subject is so disgusting that I can't even mention it here.

Even the networks' commercials are promoting lifestyles that are in complete conflict with God's Word. AT&T has just released a new ad promotion that features two homosexual men hiring a babysitter to watch "their children" so they can go on a date.

It's time to protect yourself from TV

Network television has become a vast wasteland of evil and wickedness. It is a present-day Sodom and Gomorrah.

In response, thousands of Christian families are adopting Psalm 101:3 as the new standard in their homes: “I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless.”

They are choosing to honor God by restricting what is shown in their homes or even turning off the TV altogether and focusing on those things that draw them closer to the Savior.
