As I write this, I remember how I was so curious about the movie, Game of Thrones, sometime back.
I wanted to watch the movie because it was trending even among celebrities. I really wanted to understand what the movie was about and a part of me didn’t want to miss out on the gist as well.
BUT I changed my mind after a conversation with my younger brother. I told him I really wanted to watch Game of Thrones and he was like, “Why would you want to watch that? It is really unhealthy.”
I was like “wow, I didn’t know that”
I was grateful for the information.
However, my shock came with such intensity when I realized that some Christians are die-hard fans of Game of Thrones.
See, if you are on this table, do yourself good by getting off the table and smashing it to pieces so you are not tempted to restructure it again.
I know some believers who struggle with Masturbation and Pornography and yet watch Game of Thrones because it is TRENDING.
Hmmm! I wouldn’t do that if I were you.
I used to be addicted to Masturbation at a point in my life and I knew that there was a root cause which was the sexual content I was exposing my spirit to.
So, I would never watch a movie like Game of Thrones because I do not want to find myself going back to masturbation. I want to keep my imagination clean enough for the Spirit of God to brood upon.
You cannot watch a movie that has over 144 scenes of naked people having jeru trap and doing all sorts and be normal. NO! Your prayer and study life cannot be the same as single believer.
Just think about this: you want to get married and have children, yet, you cannot sort out your addiction issues. You cannot discern what you should or should not be watching as a single lady or guy.
How then do you want to lead and train the children you are going to have in the way of the Lord?
You will endanger those children before they even come to the earth because you have exposed your heart to pollution from the pit of hell.
In that condition, when the temptation to masturbate or fornicate comes, you cannot even say NO because Game of THRONES can really DETHRONE. You will not be able to dominate the devil like you really should.
Listen, the bible says we should guard our heart with all diligence because that’s where the issues of LIFE come from (Prov 4:23).
Don’t just let anything have access to your heart dear single guy and lady.
Renew your mind with the word of God (Rom 12:1-2). Do not be conformed to this world.
It is okay to be clueless when other people are talking about Game of Thrones. Don’t let anyone make you feel uncool about it. Even if the person is a believer!
I’ve got so much to say on this subject but I would let the Holy Spirit do the rest.
