Ephesians 5:11 NIV

Hello beloved child of God, I hope you’re fine by God’s grace and I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.

Here I am again being politically incorrect. Why on earth would I want to talk about Game of Thrones knowing that there are lots of people considering themselves as Christians who watch it entirely without questioning anything about it.

Nevertheless, as I said in my post “The Politically Correct Christian”which you can read by clicking here, The Word of God is the standard and if no one speaks up about these things perhaps no one will ever tell them.

That’s why I am honoured to be the one who decided to honour God by talking about Game of Thrones today.

It looks like a new season is out, right? How do I know this? I’ve had lots of my contacts share so much about the new season of Game of Thrones on their WhatsApp statuses, and even one of the worship leaders of our church posted an Instagram status on Game of Thrones. I wasn’t shocked by “the world” doing that, but surprised when one of our worship leaders posted that.

Since I was constantly bombarded with information about Game of Thrones, I started wondering “Am I missing out on something?” and I have to admit that I was tempted to at least read the synopsis to find out what it was really about. Then, I started seeing all these posts on one of the characters (Arya) now being a “woman” because she chose to have extramarital sex (obviously against The Bible) and I got people professing to be Christians sharing on their WhatsApp statuses stuff like “Congratulations Arya you’re now a woman, you got laid”

I think you get the big picture.

That’s what happens when TV becomes the standard and that God’s Word isn’t the standard anymore. People watch sin on TV and they encourage it, celebrate it and mediatize it even more.

This was too much. Mostly that I knew since many years that Game of Thrones was famous for sexual scenes (pornography).

That’s what pushed me to go on YouTube to look for videos titled “Should Christians Watch Game of Thrones” and I actually came across this video on Game of Thrones from Paul and Morgan, two Christian YouTubers.

I’ll be honest. I didn’t watch the video. The reason why I didn’t watch it is because I already knew the answer. If a TV show shows pornography then it shouldn’t be watched it’s as easy as that. R-rated movies aren’t for Christians.

So, as I was saying I didn’t watch the video because I already knew the content. What I really wanted was the comments of Christians on the topic because I wanted to know what the Christian community was doing concretely actually, and I was really glad to get some honest responses and I’m going to share some of them with you, while explaining to you why I am convinced that Christians shouldn’t watch Game of Thrones.

1. It’s Pornography

I think all the Christians who gave a honest review about this clearly stated that Game of Thrones is pornography.

The most funny thing is when I shared these reviews with people in WhatsApp groups a good number of them tried to argue by saying so many things but one of the things which mostly came out was “yes it’s sex but it’s now as much pornography as other forms of pornography, it’s less vulgar” so basically for most people “it’s pornography but it’s not that much perverted” or “it’s perverted but it’s not as much as others”, I think another one said “it’s pornography but it’s not that bad as pornography”

Basically, for most people, because there’s a scenario around it, the pornographic scenes don’t count as pornographic scenes anymore. Just as sex scenes on TV, which is still pornography but less “bad” to them because there’s a scenario and there are other things around.

Hellywood is doing a great job in convincing people who call themselves Christians that they’re watching pornography without really watching pornography because there are other scenes and a story is being told.

Anyway, let’s agree on what pornography is. I made a little Google research for you.

“Printed or visual material containing explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate sexual excitement.”

I think Game of Thrones perfectly succeeds at this test, as well as fifty shades of grey and most of what hellywood shares with us. So, based on this definition, Game of Thrones (both the book and the TV series) is clearly pornography.

2. The Bible Is Against Pornography

In one of the WhatsApp groups in which I shared about the fact that Game of Thrones is pornography, some people asked if the word “pornography” is written in The Bible. 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

Some said that since the word pornography isn’t written in The Bible they can keep watching it. (At least at that moment they admitted that Game of Thrones was pornographic, but now they were looking for reasons to keep watching it)

I’m just going to give a few Bible verses which clearly show that God is against pornography.

First of all, do you think that these people who are using their bodies sexually and recording it for public entertainment, do you think that they’re honoring God with their Bodies? Do you think you’re honoring God by watching (and thus encouraging people to) people who dishonour God with their bodies?

Someone answered that it wasn’t real. “So when you see their naked bodies it isn’t real right?”

1 Corinthians 6:9‭-‬20 NIV

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit. Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

Pornography is sexual immorality at many levels because it involves

  1. At least one person who opens their mind to sexually immoral thoughts to imagine a sexually immoral scenario
  2. At least one person who writes down this sexually immoral scenario inspired by the evil nature of the flesh and the devil (when it’s written)
  3. At least one person who acts a sexually immoral scenario
  4. At least one person who reads or watches an immoral scenario thereby encouraging it and giving sexual immoral images and thoughts access to their soul, their conscious mind and even their unconscious mind

NB science has proven that there’s a moment while watching TV where you become hypnotized. It’s that moment where you’re watching but at the same time you’re not analyzing things, you’re just floating away relaxing, your mind drifts off and you’re not aware anymore of what’s going on around you. That’s the moment where you enter a “trance” and in that instant almost anything can get into your subconscious mind. (This part is for the people who say their faith in Christ is strong and that watching pornography can’t affect them in anyway because they’re not weak- yeah there are people who said that to me)

To cut the long story short, I think I’ve demonstrated four levels at which watching pornography is a sin. It’s worth mentioning that the thoughts it will create and the sexual urge which it will grow and entertain in your mind will ultimately push you to take action one way or another.

Some people struggle with sexual sins and still wonder “what’s the cause” while ignoring the fact that they are feeding the thoughts and thus the feelings which push them into sexual sin. Feeding these thoughts and feelings can be through the conversations you have, what you read and what you watch.

Here are a few more YouTube comments, not just on Game of Thrones this time but also on Fifty Shades of Grey which is also pornography.

By the way someone wrote to me because I denounced Game of Thrones and Fifty Shades of Grey and she was like “I’m a Christian, and I don’t usually reply to you but I’ve watched 50 Shades of Grey and It’s not pornography, you’re judging people”

When people have already done something they try to convince themselves that it is not a sin because they did it. If others do it it’s a sin but if they’re the ones who did it, they must have good reasons and it can’t be a sin. This is pride.

Amongst all the people with whom I shared all this I received lots of opposition (no surprise) but there are a few people who caught my attention.

1. The People Who Concluded That I Said They Were Going To Hell

Basically what I shared with people was this “Should Christians watch Game of Thrones? No, because Game of Thrones is pornography and thus it’s sinful”

Most people instead understood that I said this “If you’re watching Game Of Thrones you will go to hell”

That’s why many people insulted me (I won’t tell them everything they said obviously) and told me stuff like:

  • “I hope you’re perfect.”
  • “Are you even a true Christian?”
  • “Are you even sure you’re not watching Game Of Thrones?”
  • “So you’re a saint and no one can argue with you”
  • “Are you God to tell us what is right or wrong?”
  • “Do you watch TV?”
  • “Judge not”
  • “First take care of your own sins”
  • “It’s not your role to tell people what is sin and what is not”
  • “We all sin in many ways, you’re not any different from us”

It was quite interesting to look at how though I used specific words to denounce the works of the devil, the devil played with the minds of those with whom I shared those things in order to convince them that what I was doing was condemning them instead of convicting them.

Here I think you should know the difference between Condemnation and Conviction. The Holy Spirit convicts but the devil condemns.

Let’s make it practical. The Holy Spirit will tell you for example “This Game of Thrones which you’re watching contains sexual scenes, it doesn’t honour God and it’s not good for you either. It is sin. Look at the effect it has on you”

The devil will tell you “This Game of Thrones which you’re watching is sure proof that you’re going to go to hell. The fact that you like this show says everything about you. You are condemned to go to hell. It’s over and no one can do anything for you anymore.”

The Holy Spirit will tell you “Confess this sin to God, repent, move on and stay away from it from this day forward. I will be by your side to help you”

The devil will tell you “You’re already hooked up, you need to know how the show finishes, and whatever the case, you’re going to hell and everyone else is going to hell for watching game of thrones. Just accept your destiny and enjoy the TV series now, you’re going to hell anyway”

Someone said in a WhatsApp group where I talked about Game Of Thrones, and I may never forget what this person said. Remember I didn’t talk about hell, I just said that Game of Thrones was Pornographic and thus sinful.

He said if Game of Thrones will send him to hell, then he’s glad to go to hell for such a good TV series and that he’ll take a room in hell with an air conditioner.

This is only the proof that he doesn’t even know what hell is. Please keep this guy in your prayers.

Anyway, this was just to say that I told people about the pornographic nature of game of thrones not to condemn them but to tell them that in Christ Jesus they can repent, confess it to God (1 John 1:9), move on and make better choices. I told them, but they reacted with the filter of the devil, they still believed I was telling them that they would ultimately go to hell and that there was no hope for them.

2. The People Who Said It’s Not My Role To Tell Christians What To Watch

Ephesians 5: 11-12 NLT

Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret

I didn’t leave this debate on WhatsApp, and I carried it to Instagram. With the images above and I gave The Biblical standard which is against pornography and a girl who is trying to grow her career in writing worship music wrote in the comments section that it wasn’t my role to tell Christians what they should watch or shouldn’t watch. (This is a Christian telling me this)

She wasn’t the only one saying this, most people on Whatsapp said that, but she was the only one saying that on instagram. For her it was none of my business.

I told her what I’m telling you now, but I may not say it in the exact same words.

There are some things which aren’t directly immoral, for example watching football. I won’t tell Christians not to watch football because I don’t see where it’s in direct contradiction with God’s Word. I just know that if there’s a Christian for whom football has become an idol, God will speak into their life so that they let go of football. Football is quite neutral. However, things like pornography and sexual immorality in general are clearly against God’s Word, which means I am responsible for telling others when I find out about something dangerous that it is dangerous. I have to tell them because it’s the truth and pornography is against The Bible.

This girl on Instagram tried to convince me that I’m not their family member so I can’t speak into their lives but let me tell you that if you care only about the salvation of your family and believe that others can go into sin and go to hell and that it’s none of your business, then you’ve not understood when Jesus Christ told us to make all the world to be His disciples.

He didn’t say “preach The Gospel only to your family and let others die in ignorance”, He said go to the whole Earth, all nations.

Matthew 28:19-20 NLT

Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Imagine if for example your pastor said today “I’m closing this church because I think I can’t make sermons about sin to people whom I don’t know, it’s not my role. I will preach God’s Word only to my family. Goodbye”

This would be so against Jesus’ calling on all of us to preach The Gospel.

I live in Cameroon in Africa. Imagine if the missionaries who brought The Gospel to us and opened our eyes against witchcraft and idol worshiping (which was in our culture in Cameroon before we heard about Jesus Christ) imagine if they had said “Who are we to tell these black people if yes or no they are to worship idols? They are not family so it’s none of our business”

Let’s not be egoistic with The Gospel.

3. The People Whose Eyes Were Opened By The Holy Spirit

These people are not the majority but they are the ones whom God had set apart. Those for whom He made me do all this.

Those are the people who just like me had so many friends share about Game of Thrones and whose friends made them feel like they were missing out. These are those who started questioning “should I watch game of thrones?” but who knew nothing about the sexual content.

I am grateful to God that some of them replied to me on Whatsapp and Instagram saying that though they were considering to start watching it, after all what I shared (and I just shared the comments of other Christians) they made up their mind not to watch game of thrones.

In fact for some of them their friends who knew everything about the pornography, had already told them “this is not for you” because they just “this is a child of God and I can’t share this with her/him”

4. The People Who Reminded Me Of My Past

I was expecting that. I was expecting someone to bring up something about a show they knew I loved in the past but which was not Biblical.

Someone brought up “Naruto” (it’s an anime which is clearly about witchcraft and demon possession) and someone brought up “Harry Potter” (also about Witchcraft) and my response was basically the same.

Romans 3:4a KJV

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar;

Do not try to justify sin when God confronts you. That’s what King Saul did and that’s how he lost his communion with God. Instead, be like King David. When God confronts you, just say “Yes I did it , I agree , You are right, I’m wrong I confess and I repent”

It’s not because I’ve watched it with love and passion a few years ago that it has suddenly become acceptable to God. If it talks about Witchcraft and promotes witchcraft, then it promotes the works of the devil and watching is not only encouraging it’s also exposing yourself to that content.

As Ben Shapiro says, it’s not because you’ve fallen that you’re not entitled anymore to tell people that they are about to fall. If you have failed at something you can still tell others where you failed so that they won’t fail there too. (I may have changed some words but the idea is there)

Nevertheless, no one mentioned my real battle . That’s why I’ll mention it now.

I love medical TV shows, but unfortunately there are sex scenes in most of them especially Grey’s anatomy. I stopped watching it because of the pornographic scenes. Whenever I see a TV announcement about it, my heart races and I’m like “what’s happened lately on the show?” but I know “I can’t watch this anymore because even if I had to fast forward the sex scenes, I would still have seen what I wasn’t supposed to see and I would still hear most of the sex talk in the TV series. ” So, honestly at times I crave watching it, but. I’m grateful that God’s Holy Spirit always reminds me that it contains pornography and that I shouldn’t watch it. I’m even praying for the craving to go, that’s the objective.

This brings us to the last part of my blog post.

I heard there are Christian online streaming services which are specialized in filtering out sex scenes, impure language and violent scenes from series and shows so that Christians can look at wordly shows without the embarrassment of inappropriate content before their eyes. I’m not sure I would watch Game of Thrones or Grey’s Anatomy on such a platform because even though the evil scenes would have been filtered out, watching their shows would still mean encouraging them to continue producing more. If everyone decided that we wouldn’t look at trash, then these people would be forced to produce better content, or at least Christians would produce more content and make it more affordable (watching pornography is free even when you don’t want it you get ads popping up from everywhere, while watching Christian movies is quite expensive for some and you don’t even get to find them every time you’re looking for one, and there are not enough Ads I think).

Nevertheless, in a world where almost nothing is produced without inappropriate scenes, online streaming services like Vidangel are for sure safer alternatives, but serioulsy, Christians should start invading the world with such good content that we Christians won’t need to go and look at Hellywood trash through a filtering service. That’s my opinion


Father Lord God Almighty, teach me to renounce everything which pushes me to sin, especially in the area of entertainment, help me not justify my sins but toconfess them and renounce them daily in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen

Hi Victoria! I came across this post when you started following me on IG (@throughhiseyesdevotional). Thanks for sharing, so honestly and so faithfully, on this topic! In my family, we don’t have t.v., so we really don’t catch any trendy shows, and that seems to be for the best…We watch movies, and we’ve found we can’t watch R at all, and we even struggle with PG at this point! One good habit we’ve developed from getting caught-by-surprise by movies is that whenever something starts to look sketchy, we turn our eyes away immediately – I’ve noticed that this serves us well in a lot of circumstances, since we still live in the world…But, yeah, we know we have to guard our hearts, and that means guarding what’s going into our eyes and our ears, so all of our watching is pretty picky, and we only become more sensitive to sinful language, behavior, subject matter, etc…But mainly, I just wanted to thank you for speaking out as the Lord calls us to – though it may not always be appreciated (and actually, it will most often be the opposite, since many are called but few are chosen), yet it remains our God-given responsibility to give our best effort in warning others, as you have, according to the truth straight from the word, because we love them and we truly care about their eternal souls…I keep a family-journal blog at michalskisgreatadventure.wordpress.com, and a devotional blog at michalskisintheword.wordpress.com, if you’re ever interested in seeing more about our family. Wonderful to know a sister-in-Christ in Cameroon, and I look forward to seeing more from your blog and IG! Your in Christ, Sydney

    Hello sister Sydney, sorry for the delayed reply. Thank you so much for these encouraging words and glory be to God. Me too I think once I’ll be married and have kids God willing, it would be a great Idea not to have TV at all. Nevertheless, we will still have to screen content as your family does. Since there’s the internet and there are many inappropriate ads, movies, and shows on the internet nevertheless. It’s a great thing to turn eyes away immediately, I do that a lot, as well as fast forwarding. Or I did that a lot. Nevertheless with time by the discernment of The Holy Spirit, I learn how to choose better movies on the internet for myself, and I don’t even watch as many movies as before 😂 Indeed I received lots of opposition for what I wrote about Game of thrones but I know that God called me to so that, so I don’t care what people think about it, I only care about what God said in His Word. Thanks again for the encouragement and for the comment Sydney. I follow you on Instagram and I’ll make sure to follow your WordPress blog. I hope we can chat soon. God bless you sister.
