The fact is television doesn’t simply reflect society’s values. In important ways, it also legitimizes them. And more and more in recent decades it has made even the most dubious “values” and behaviors seem normal and routine.

And I want you to know, before we go any further, that Jesus came to free you from religion. To those who have been hauling around a long list of rules. To those who are pretending to be more than they really are. To those who are weighed down with the fear and guilt of religion. To all the fans who are worn out on religion, Jesus invites you to follow him.
