Whilst agreeing with Tobin it is a fact that a believer has a choice is it not? What is the correct motivation in making any choice 'whatsoever you do do all to the glory of God'
Believers disagree on many things and often with a strange unbiblical view. An example is TV. It would be very straightforward to prove that there is very little of substance on UK TV. Is the BBC a godly channel where the gospel is sounded forth or can it stand for BOLDLY BLASPHEMING CHRIST? Should we buy a TV license and support an organisation that promotes and produces filth with our money? What does the scripture say about the use of our money? Strangely the majority of christians do support the BBC by purchasing a TV license. Nothing wrong with the TV set but plenty wrong with the BBC and the other channels! Is there something wrong in promoting SIN with your money?
Why give up your favourite TV sports and entertainment programmes when there is so much more time to pray , read the bible, do gospel work, PROMOTE CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOUR? I guess you know what God says about using our time? The scripture that Christ may return any hour is a real motivation?
Just a new year thought for us UK Christians...still resolute in the defence of the gospel of Christ
