There’s a term in IT that if a computer application takes in faulty data, then it will produce faulty results (GIGO).
Human beings are no different. There is so much research that supports the idea that media consumption (whether violent, profane, risque or any/all of the above) produces thoughts and actions that lead to the same behavior.
This is really another example of how science supports the Bible. God’s Word doesn’t need science to support it, but why should we be surprised when God set the foundation for all the natural laws in the world? Academics are continually late to the party, attempting to make futile attempts to disprove the truth of the Bible, and yet figuring out what followers of Christ have known all along.
