Moral erosion comes through repeated exposure to evil


   Q. Moral erosion and breakdown.  By what process is it brought 
       about? 

   A. One main way is through repeated exposure to badness and 
       evil.  Example: lustful, lewd pictures, scenes or ideas 
       brought repeatedly to one's attention, as on TV 
       advertisements and shows.  The continual repetition keeps 
       these on top of one's mind and doesn't let you forget them.  
       The best way is to keep these kinds of things away from your 
       mind.  They then tend to fade away from your thinking and 
       awareness and your mind becomes cleaner and more wholesome.  
       The secret is avoiding.  Avoid sin.  Stay away from it.  
       Avoid obscenity and profanity.  Avoid impurity.  Repeated 
       association with evil brings an acceptance of it, a sick 
       and calloused conscience.
