Family Guy – Corrupting Influences

Obscene and filthy conversation prevails everywhere in society. So universal is this that almost every Christian finds common conversation corrupt and defiling. Especially contaminating is the media. For example, obscene and offensive cartoons like Family Guy are training our children to disrespect themselves and others.

“Speech is an invaluable gift; a blessing of inestimable worth,” said Albert Barnes, and I agree. The act of rendering indirect or even worse openly offensive speech toward fellow human beings is having tragic consequences on the families of this generation. A depraved, even evil force seems to shadow this corruption. So speak always to do good to others. Give information; impart consolation if needed; elicit truth in friendly conversation, or admonish kindly those who are going astray. For if we talk only for the sake of talking or being funny, we will certainly say foolish things; but if your aim in life is to benefit others, we will not likely say things that we will have occasion to regret.
