The Value of Pure Books

When you walk into a library, you don't have to walk far to find a book on vampires or sorcery.  You don't have to walk far to find a book on boyfriend & girlfriend stuff, vise versa.  But why is it, that its so hard to find a good, wholesome,life-filled, pure book?  Sure, there's books out there that don't have evil things in them, but sometimes its seems like if there's a book that doesn't have evil things in it, its the other extreme...completely worthless.
So whats my point?  Whats the reason I'm writing about this?  Because there's two things in your mind that guide you daily, one, is your subconscious mind, and the other is your conscious mind.  Your subconscious is everything that has ever happened to you in your life, everything that you've ever felt, smelt, done, seen, or said.  Your conscious mind, on the other and, is what is going on in your mind right now.  What your thinking right now.  So, in relation to all this, your subconscious is bigger than your conscious.  Picture it like an ant riding a HUGE elephant.  Your subconscious is the elephant, and the ant is your conscious.  You see, you subconscious can sometimes guide your conscious, for example:
there once was a hobo that jumped a train and went into this car for safety.  He went inside, only to soon discover that it locked behind him, and he was trapped inside an ice car!  In his mind, he reasoned that he would soon freeze to death, so he began to write letters to his family, telling them he loved them and things like, 'I feel my hands getting numb, its getting colder...' and such.  Soon, that man died.
Later, when the guys of the train came and found this man in the ice car, they were puzzled.
"How can this be?"  They said.  You see, the motor to the ice car had been off.  It hadn't even been cold in the car!!!
This story is a perfect (true story) of how that man's subconscious elephant had controlled and overtaken his conscious ant, and the result was tragic.  His life.
He could've lived. But his elephant kept telling him 'your going to die.  your in an ice car.' So what did he do?
He listened to his elephant, and he did die.
That story amazes me still, and yet, its a perfect reminder of everything that you and I are putting into our minds.  Is it true?  Is it pure?  Well, how do we know if its pure?  We compare it according to God's Word, the Bible.  If it goes against His Word, then we shouldn't even pick it up.
Everything that we read is only feeding our elephant...whatever we feed him, that will be our results.
I hope this has helped you understand the importance of what you read and watch, and now is the time to go out and conquer our elephants, and let the ant lead!!!

Please ask yourself every time before you post if it honors Jesus.
I know if your doing that then your heart wants to please Him!
