[quote=AkronPonderer]Since I see a lot of what I consider “made-up” sins being proposed on this board, like voting for Kerry or shopping at Walmart, I’d thought I’d give this one a whirl.
Is watching soap-opera TV shows, or any other programs with gratuitous immoral sexual or violent displays/images, a confessable sin?
I don’t think there is an absolute answer to this question. This is one where you need to examine your concience.
Are you using your time in the best way to serve God?
Are you watching this for some sort of sexual gratification?
Does this lead you to loosen your own morals (near occasion of sin)?
Why does watching others act out immorally give you pleasure?
You can ask many questions about this. If your viewing this is a detriment to your spiritual life. If it prevents you from living for the greater glory of God. Then maybe it is sinful.
