What could I accomplish if I didn't watch TV?

As you know we don’t have a TV and it seems I’m in good company, neither does John Piper and he has some barnstorming reasons.

Here’s one of his ‘milder’ (ahem) explanations:

“It is not necessary for relevance. And it is a deadly place to rest the mind. Its pervasive banality, sexual innuendo, and God-ignoring values have no ennobling effects on the preacher’s soul. It kills the spirit. It drives God away. It quenches prayer. It blanks out the Bible. It cheapens the soul. It destroys spiritual power. It defiles almost everything…It is unnecessary for most of you, and it is spiritually deadly for all of you.”
