Dr. David K. Bernard provides biblical guidance on how believers can protect themselves from moral impurity in an internet-driven world and follow the guidance of King David, who said, “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes” (Psalm 101:3).
It seems evil has never been more prevalent or as accessible than it is today. Smartphones and other digital technology allow us to easily transact business but can also destroy our souls by granting almost instant access to immorality.In this podcast, Dr. Bernard discusses how Christians can protect themselves from being unnecessarily exposed to wickedness and immorality and fulfill what David said in Psalm 101:3.

The early Pentecostals established guidelines to protect themselves from moral impurity, particularly in the popular culture and media. I don’t think that King David or our Pentecostal pioneers ever envisioned a world in which they could access the worst kinds of immoral filth in just a matter of a few seconds using a vice like a smartphone. It’s very tricky for saints today because the same technology we use to transact our business and to manage our daily affairs can also destroy our souls. Considering the pervasiveness of evil and the accessibility of it in our world, Dr. Bernard discusses how Christians can protect themselves from being unnecessarily exposed to wickedness and immorality and fulfill what David said in Psalm 101:3.
