Welcome to the first 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:

Clean Media, Clean Mind

You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act.  Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.

These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.

Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station: www.klove.com

Level 2: sprint
Cut out all media that glorifies sex, drugs, drinking, searing, occult, and violence. Yes, this means most comedy shows, popular music, and a lot of movies. Think about how much time you spend everyday absorbing negative media and what better things you could be doing with that time. Consider listening to a positive radio station: www.klove.com

Level 3: extra mile
Cut out all negative media and encourage friends and family to do so as well. Listen to positive radio: www.klove.com Research bible verses that emphasize the importance of a clean mind and draw or write a journal about it to share with the group.

I'm glad to see somewhere that takes a stand for Christian values in the media.

I used to read Homestuck, but even with a language filter, it just got too raunchy for me. Those words and dirty terms bounced around in my head and made me a very uncomfortable Christian. So I cut it out of my media diet, and my mind feels a lot cleaner now. A good storyline just isn't worth compromising your values and the sanctity of your mind.

Yeah... it is very...unclean. I have to say I have cut back on it myself. It's really violent too, and it gets to be too much. There's a lot of great books that I should probably have read instead...

Also, for positive radio, there is Air 1 for people that like rock-type music.
