Entertainment: moral choices

"I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it." -- John 17:14-16

A good starting point:

How would I feel if Jesus were to physically come to my dorm room or home? Would I feel pride or embarrassment at having Jesus see my CD, video tape and/or video games collections?

Here's some guidance
