“The TV is my shepherd, my spiritual growth shall want.
It maketh me to sit down and do nothing for His name’s sake,
It keepeth me from doing my duty as a Christian; because it presenteth so many good programs that I must see.
It restoreth my knowledge of the things of this world, and keepeth me from the study of God’s word.
It leadeth me into the paths of failing to attend the evening church services, and doing nothing for the Kingdom of God.
Yet, though I live to be one hundred, I shall keep viewing my TV so long as it shall work, for it is my closest companion.
Its sounds and its pictures, they comfort me.
It presenteth entertainment before me and keepth me from doing important things with my family.
It filleth my head with ideas which differ from those in the Word of God.
Surely no good thing will come of my life because of so many wasted hours, and I shall dwell in my regrets and remorse forever.”
