Brother Stair has said for decades that one of God’s Commands is to, “Get the TV out of your homes”. Just what did God mean by that, since He would have to know what that meant in the Last Generation and how technology would have changed that from what it was when He commanded it. Today, in modern countries, there is no TV in that traditional sense because those old sets do not work anymore with digital signals. So has everyone obeyed this command without even knowing it? Or did God know that it would mean something entirely different today? Even Brother Stair knew and said that video streaming was the same thing in the early 2000’s when he was offered the ability to stream his broadcast live on video. For which he refused on those grounds that it was the same as TV.
It is a matter of content vs. medium. The medium may change, just as how we get our music today, but the content is the issue. God would have been concerned with the content of TV rather than the medium that it arrived on.
Otherwise, it would be like saying, get the record-players out of your house. It would seem time has caused us all to do that but it has not removed the intended offender – music. We still have music in our homes, just not via record players, the medium has changed.
Same with TV. Time has changed the medium. So wouldn’t God have known that? Either this wasn’t God or we have to place this word into the context of our day. Which we all understand to be the content, not the medium (TV), that is the offender. Whereas this content is visual, then anything video would be what was then regarded as “TV”.
Gods message must then be, “Get the video out of your homes”.
We had this article idea submitted to us about what TV is today and how Internet streaming is the new TV, but rather than that we wanted to first show you what others are saying in that regard.
So now, even our phones are our TV’s?
Are There TV’s in Your Home?
