All entertainment is carnal, and carnality is sin.

Re: What kind of entertainment is good for the sou

I'm not much of a TV watcher, but I do like to read. I try to stay away from most secular novels, so I read a lot of Christian novels. I know they will be clean and have a good moral to them.

We also rode a Harley for four years; that was fun!!!!!

Have you read the Thoene's much? I am a huge fan of the Zion Covenent Series...

I am reading the third book in The Mark of the Lion series right now, Francine Rivers.

Years ago I used to read insatiably, now I tend to put a book down and not pick it up for a week or two... that's what I've done with this lastest book.

I can't remember if it's the Zion Covenant or the Zion Chronicles that I have, but whichever it is, I've read them about four times. It's the ones about John Murphy, the photojournalist in WWII. I learned a lot of history reading those books!

And I have the Mark of the Lion series too. I love Francine Rivers. I think her book "Redeeming Love" is probably my favorite Christian novel.

I also love anything by Karen Kingsbury. I feel like I know the Baxter family personally. LOL!

Re: What kind of entertainment is good for the sou

I loved to watch my kids play T-ball when they were little. I also think high school sports are good entertainment.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

Study and pray. Everything else is carnal.
