There is much debate about whether Christians can or should watch the television series ‘Game of Thrones’.
It’s a question that applies to an increasing amount of media today. I discovered this quote from JC Ryle that provides an excellent guideline for holy living:
“Do nothing that you would not like God to see. Say nothing you would not like God to hear. Write nothing you would not like God to read. Go no place where you would not like God to find you. Read no book of which you would not like God to say, “Show it to Me.”
Never spend your time in such a way that you would not like to have God say, “What are you doing?”
Well said, Bishop.
John Piper has also written ‘12 Questions to Ask Before You Watch Game of Thrones‘.
