The Bible or TV Guide?
On the table side by side:
The Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
One's well worn but cherished with pride
(Not the Bible, but the TV Guide).
One's used daily to help folk decide,
No! It isn't the Bible, it's the TV Guide.
As pages are turned, what will they see?
Oh, what does it matter, turn on the TV.
Then confusion reigns, they can't all agree
On what they will watch on the old TV.
So they open the book in which they confide
(Not the Bible, it's the TV Guide).
The Word of God is seldom read-
Maybe a verse o'er they fall into bed
Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be,
(Not from reading the Bible: from watching TV).
So then back to the table, side by side,
Are the Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
No time for prayer, no time for the Word.
The way of salvation is seldom heard.
Abiding in Christ so full and free
Is found in the Bible, not on TV.
The 23rd Channel
The TV is my shepherd, I shall not want.
It makes me lie down on the sofa.
It leads me away from the faith.
It destroys my soul.
It leads me in the path of sex and violence for the sponsors sake.
Yea, though I walk in the shadow of Christian responsibilities,
there will be no interruption for the TV is with me.
It's cable and remote control, they comfort me.
It prepares a commercial for me in the presence of my worldliness.
Can't find your way?
It annoints my head with humanism ad consumerism,
my coveting runneth over.
Surely, Laziness and Ignorance shall follow me all the days of my life.
I shall dwell in the house wtching TV forever.
