The Gospel Frees You to Chill the Heck Out

Maybe it's because I am looking forward to watching some college hoops tonight, but I enjoyed this quote from Jared Wilson posted on JT's blog:

Yes, people watch too much TV and play too many video games and spend too much time on the Internet and what-have-you. But the proper response to our media over-saturation is not a rigorous attention to the explicitly “spiritual” in every margin of life. Be a Christian, not an ascetic. Don’t be lazy, but realize that Jesus Christ did not die and rise for you so that you would stress out about whether you’re being spiritual enough. So take a nap. Watch some television. The gospel frees you to chill the heck out.

What do you think?

  1. I don't think it would have raised such a stir if it didn't mention television, chill and heck...those are all fire starters. I get the idea though - if I think my righteousness comes from NOT watching TV --- geez, have I got a problem!
