John Piper and Television

Abraham Piper recently searched the DesiringGod website for the word “television” and compiled a short list of his dad’s quotes that contain the word. 

It’s sad to me that when concerned Christians speak about the spiritual effects of American TV culture and the foolishness of imbibing it with regularity, the word “legalistic” is often part of the response (but without much in terms of biblical explanation, cogent argument, or even thoughtful consideration).  Perhaps we understand neither holiness nor legalism as we should.

May the Lord grant us a heart for things greater than the typical sitcom.
