    Hello Everyone,

    Just some backstory on this show I watch: I read the Mortal Instrument books and for the first time ever I felt like my soul was cringing because the author was dissing my faith. It was subtle at some points and other times you could tell what the author was aiming for. For the first time ever I threw the books in the trash with a warning to any Christian or believer of God, to beware of books' message.

    Now there's a show about it (called Shadowhunters) and it's not that bad. My soul hasn't cringed and I told myself that if the show got to be where the books were, I would cease to watch it. But I'm interested in some characters and how the plot will pan out for the storyline.

    The demons in the show don't bug me, what bugs me is the constant homosexuality they show. They show two men kissing and talking about sex. I don't believe in that as God as said it's wrong. So I'm conflicted: should I watch the scenes that focus on the story and skip the homosexuality parts or should I cease watching this show altogether?

    What would you do? Thank you and God bless!

    Just a thought on this. Even though the more noticeable messages in the book are not as in-your-face in the tv show does not mean they aren't there. They are just a bit more subtle. Most likely you will end up turning your back on this series the same way you did the book. And, I don't blame you. There are plenty of shows and movies out there we, as Christians, should avoid.

    After all...garbage in-garbage out.

    Reminds me of psalm 101
    Vs.2-3 '...I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart. I will set no worthless thing before eyes;...'

    Thank you both for answering! I do have a feeling one day, I'll just switch channels. I wish there wasn't anything in there as the plot isn't that bad; I guess I just wish that shows were wholesome again without an agenda, but sadly we don't live in those times anymore. But you're right there are a lot of subtle things in the show that I'm probably missing. I'm still praying about this too.

    Again thank you and I hope you all have a blessed year. :)

    I know how you feel, it is getting harder and harder to find decent, pure shows on television. Keep God in your heart and prayers and he surely will show you the way.

    Thank you both for answering. Yes, praying a lot on this even though it's trivial to other problems. And that's a good quote Reba. God Bless You All! :)

    Many of the movies, these days, have giants, demons, vampires, the paranormal, super human abilities, aliens, post apocalyptic and end of the world themes.

    They are numbing the brains and consciousness of the public, in preparation for Satan's grand illusion and the Antichrist's arrival and all the strange things that will be occurring in that period of time on this earth.

    hello

    satan is the god of this world

    his aim is to steal kill & destroy

    movies music media tv toys cartoons conversations etc etc etc

    are all tactics strategies and conditioning to deceive distract and destroy all of humanity

    everything around us is designed for one purpose and one purpose only to distort the TRUTH

    political correctness vs biblical correctness conflicts with Gods ethics values and morals

    Jesus is the way the truth and eternal life

    the offer of pleasure excitement and gratification is dictated by each persons appetite

    we can walk the broad and spacious path or we can walk the straight and narrow one

    what we focus on the most is manifested in our lives

    we sow to the flesh we reap from the flesh

    we sow to the Spirit we reap from Spirit

    we are the light surrounded by darkness

    let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven
    Mathew 5.16

    Peace
