Joseph Schillero is the founder of Gateway to the Heart Ministries. His ministry is dedicated to using the teaching and preaching of God's Word to equip people with biblical truths and principles to help them make wise choices concerning their media selections. Joseph is the author of the booklet, 'Biblical Filters for Your Media Choices'.

To begin the program, Jim noted the following from Joseph's website:

--Children today spend more time watching television than any other activity.
--90% of 8-16 year olds have viewed Internet pornography.
--Nearly 50% of Christian men say that porn is a major problem in their home.
--Most of the top selling video games contain extreme violence.

According to Joseph, the statistics tell us that when it comes to movies, TV, music and video games, the lifestyles of the Church and the world are really not that different. That fact was the burden on his heart that he feels God used to have him start Gateway to the Heart Ministries.

In response, Joseph wrote a booklet, 'Biblical Filters for Your Media Choices' that challenges readers to consider the following:

#1--Are my media choices taking up too much of my time?
#2--Are my media choices encouraging me to worship someone or something else other
than God?
#3--Is a central theme or message of my media choice positive?
#4--Has my media choice influenced me to sin against God?
#5--Will my media choice bring temptation into my life?
#6--What does a media choice say about the value of other people?
#7--Will my media choice desensitize my view of evil?
#8--Would I want others following the example of my media choices?
#9--Am I asking the right question about my media choices?
#10--Am I glorifying God through my media choices?
