Ep. 66: Content Control

How does what we watch and consume online impact our thoughts (and thus our character and beliefs)? In this episode we’re looking at how God’s word instructs us to exert control over the online content we consume every day. Most importantly, we’ll discuss what that control looks like and how to implement it.
