As God’s child, you are not enslaved to entertainment or anything else. Christ has purchased a way out for you.

Welcome back to the podcast. We talked about entertainment on Friday, about how much entertainment is too much entertainment. Today we push the conversation forward. What if entertainment has become an addiction? How do we get unstuck? Here’s the email.

“Hello, Pastor John, my name is Cesar, and I’m writing from Peru. In the last three weeks, I have been disturbed by the following situation: I cannot break my addiction to entertainment. I am convinced that the short-lived emotions of entertainment do not compare to the pleasures found in a deep life of communion with God. But I can play a video game for three hours, and feel my emptiness and dissatisfaction, but the next day my desire for more entertainment is renewed, and this has turned into a horrible, vicious circle. I am very stressed with this situation. I want to grow spiritually. I do not want to waste my life in trifles.”
