Surreptitiously done, it would be great just to watch people's expressions and puzzled reactions  Grin
Much as I like the idea, it would not be the right thing to do. It would be interfering with one's free will.

Did I say how I printed out The Reginator's post contributing to this thread on page 2? Well. I did last December while in Uganda and read it out to my sister's family. My sister loved it so much, she had several copies made and was giving it out to her contacts and talking about it constantly for days.

I just saved an old console tv this week from a friends junk pile, we have gutted the cabinet part  that held the massive old tv screen and  it will soon be a cage for my pair of white doves. Tonight I painted the cabinet  sky blue. It will make a terrific bird cage and no more seed tossed out from the cage ( doves are messy eaters and fling seed everywhere)
It still has a good set of wheels so it can go on the porch in warm weather then back inside for winter time. 

A good use for a tv.

Peace be with you.

Television is Entertainment. Break down the word 'Entertainment' a little.

You get   Enter - Taint - Men.

It is right in front of your face. That is one of the means of how demons Enter into your Soul to Corrupt it. So basically, if you want to Perish in your sins and go to Hell, you watch T.V. to Taint your Soul.

Also when you watch T.V. , Keep a journal or diary to Log the Amount of Time you spend doing that everyday. Do that until you grow old and are about to Die on your death bed. Then when you are about to Die, open up the diaries and See All that Time you Wasted due to the devil Tricking you into watching T.V. and Corrupting your Soul.

Then start Panicking about what you are going to say to your Maker when you are about to be Judged and how you could have better use that time for the Salvation of your Soul instead of watching T.V. for its Corruption.

God bless you.
