TV as God

Posted by Hello
"The media, considered as a conglomerate, bear the attributes of God in that they are everywhere (omnipresence), inform us about everything (omiscience), and seemingly can accomplish anything (omnipotence)....It's not simply that we have the television on too much. We do. And it's not that we listen to crass, godless music and watch repulsive movies. We do that, too. It's that we haven't faced our deep yearning for the media to be as wise and strong as God. When we seek power over our circumstances, we seek the omnipotence that only God possesses, and we lose the ability to hear His voice."
--Dan Allender
