I believe violent video games, movies, TV shows, and music do affect an individual negatively. Not everyone who consumes these forms of “entertainment” will go murder or physically abuse someone but they do produce unGodly fruit if regularly consumed such as anger, insensitivity, hatred, pride, unforgiveness etc. This is the same with eating junk food and its affects or more comparable pornography and how it trains the mind to dehumanize people and treat them as objects to fulfill one’s carnal desires. I believe the saying garbage in garbage out is so true. Just like not everyone who consumes violent media on a regular basis is going to start a mass shooting though it does feed those carnal desires that can lead someone down that path, the same is for porn. Not everyone who uses porn will one day rape or molest someone but it certainly destroys their conscience and can increase the likelihood that they may end up doing something like that to fulfill the carnal nature that has outgrown the movies. We have to be honest and say, we don’t fully know our heart and how much garbage affects us. We need Jesus to help us and desire Godly things that speak life into us and not death and not to be entertained by things in fantasy world that we would and should detest in real life.
