Believers have freedom in Christ though everything in the world is not beneficial.1 As
believers, we are called to live to a higher standard.2 In living in the world, believers should
remain in fellowship with the Holy Spirit to discern the impact of what we subject ourselves to.3
Our thoughts are a direct reflection of what we have seen and heard; God desires us to think
about what is pure and holy.4 Therefore, we should set up safeguards and guidelines to protect
ourselves and others from Satan’s attacks.5

It shall not fasten its grip on me.
A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will know no evil.
