Is It Good For A Child Of God To Watch The Big Brother Naija Reality TV Show?
When this question was thrown my way by one of the young people I mentor, it kind of threw me off-balance. A lot of nasty things has been said about the Reality Show for which this platform reacted in good nature over exhibition of nudity and such indecent behaviours as found in the manner which the contestants conduct themselves on such a national TV show, Read Photo Speak: Big Brother Naija Has To Be Censored Or The Prize-Money Be Used To Sponsor A Dance Competition, I’ll try my best to answer this controversial and enervating question my mentee threw my way.
Luckily for me, the word of God has come to my rescue. In Matthew 14:11, it is stated here thus:
“Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man”
On the other hand, Proverbs 4:23 charges us to keep our heart with all diligence; for out of it are issues of life.
A child of God from the foregoing is cleared to watch such a Reality TV Show, but must have need not to allow bad morals coming from the very nature of such a Show to corrupt him/her. If you are not yet a strong Christian, even if you think you are, you know what triggers sinful thoughts in you. Are they found in such a Reality TV Show? If they are and you know you are not strong to cope with the temptations of life that abound in it, why tune to such an even channel?
This is not about carefulness, but about the type of life you live. If you sight two naked persons making out on such a Show, what comes to your mind? Is this Show to the gory of God?
