“You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat.” Romans 14:10
Going to Grove City College is both a blessing and curse. I receive a respectable, Christian, liberal arts education. This is exactly what I want to get out of college. And I’ve been fortunate to find many people there that share my background, goals, and interests.
Being a student at Grove City can feel like being in some kind of elite club, at least to me. Partly because of this, and partly because I’m a human being with a pride problem, I often feel that I’m somehow superior to the masses. I can understand classic literature, I know more about the Bible than the next guy’s pastor, and I don’t listen to the sorry excuse for music they play on popular radio stations.
I feel disgusted by most popular forms of “entertainment” these days, and while the feeling can be godly, I really don’t think it is. If I’m going by God’s checklist, I should only consider things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praisworthy. How many things do I entertain myself with that have all of those qualities? Not too many. When it comes to judging the things of the world, I’m grossly underqualified.
