Looking Ahead: Practical Application

Well, in these Monday posts, I’ve covered most of the basics of good discernment. We’ve looked at the necessity of a biblical foundation, the growth of maturity, and personal limitations. We’ve delved into the problems of desensitization, how to deal with gray areas normally outside our boundaries, and some of the marks of good craft. And we’ve set an overall standard: if there’s any doubt about what you’re getting into, walk away.

In short, you now have all the tools for learning good discernment.

But practically applying these tools can be difficult. So in the coming months we will start practicing these principles by considering some of the common areas we all encounter, such as violence, humor, swearing, sexuality, and magic/the supernatural.
