Beauty nourishes the soul. Destruction damages the soul.
It’s not just TV shows that are darker and more violent—books, movies, video games, music lyrics—they are all places you can find cruelty and crime, guts and gore, hate and harm.
We are a society that is increasingly concerned with what we put into our bodies—no artificial chemicals, additives, preservatives or colors please! Make mine organic, free-range, non-GMO, fair-trade, and local!
But when it comes to what we put into our minds, and what we allow our souls to feast on, we are quite careless. If junk food damages our bodies, what does all this junk entertainment do to us? Do we honestly believe there are no consequences on how we think and feel and live from the material we allow into our hearts and minds?
Why are we willing to inspect the ingredients in our food so closely, and yet ignore the components of our recreation?
