Billy Graham once wrote that we as God´s people should have one hand on the news and the other hand on the Bible.  He is of course right, but the challenge would be, how much the news and much the Bible?  Is there a proper balance, or does TV win?

As far as I know B.G. has a huge TV screen himself to keep abreast with the today´s situation (though I don´t know how much he´s able to watch now), but he has in the past warned how the TV in all its enchantment could easily become a tool of Satan in many Christian homes.

That really matters.  We shouldn´t be ignorant about what´s going on in our world, but at the same time we should be spiritually sensitive to God´s television, i.e.  about what He reveals to us  from His written revelation  and let the Holy Spirit apply it to our immediate situation.

Billy Graham is not a philosopher with deep and profound thoughts, but  his passion is a practical, down-to-earth, bringing about the gospel to a lost souls.  So I would much rather mingle with him than with the world famous Danish thinker, Søren Kierkegaard, who may stimulate my intellect without, though, challenging me as a soul winner or contribute to our praise singing fellowship.

In fact, when we, D.V., again cross the pond to be with our loved ones in Yakema, WA, - hopefully soon - I would like to make a flying visit to dear friends in N.C. also.  They would take me abt. ½ hour´s drive to B.G.´s place in Charlotte, and I would like to just dwell there a few quiet moments.
As the passion for souls grips our hearts and the word of God becomes our true fascination, the TV will still be there, but will be reduced to a minor matter as we together  "experience what things are most worth while" (Phi. 1:9, NEB translation) as ambassadors for a kingdom of another world.
