Bible Quotes
23Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice: for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand. 24And when the people saw him, they praised their god: for they said, Our god hath delivered into our hands our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, which slew many of us. 25And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars.
(Judges 16:23-25)

12They sing to the music of tambourine and harp; they make merry to the sound of the flute. 13They spend their years in prosperity and go down to the grave in peace. 14Yet they say to God, 'Leave us alone! We have no desire to know your ways. 15Who is the Almighty, that we should serve him? What would we gain by praying to him?'
(Job 21:12-15)

He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.

(Ecclesiastes 7:2-4)

Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.

Entertainment/ Pleasures and the Bible

Here are the criteria for choosing any entertainment: Including books, music, television, and movies. "And now, brothers, as I close this letter, let me say this one more thing: Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about." Philippians 4:8, TLB.

Avoid inappropriate activities. "Help me to refuse the low and vulgar things; help me to abhor all crooked deals of every kind, to have no part in them." Psalm 101:3, TLB.

You cannot enjoy many of the entertainment pleasures this world offers and still be a friend of God. "You are like an unfaithful wife who loves her husband's enemies. Don't you realize that making friends with God's enemies—the evil pleasures of this world—makes you an enemy of God? I say it again, that if your aim is to enjoy the evil pleasure of the unsaved world, you cannot also be a friend of God." James 4:4, TLB.

What are some of the evil pleasures of the world? "But when you follow your own wrong inclinations your lives will produce evil results: impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, spiritism (that is, encouraging the activity of demons), hatred and fighting, … murder, drunkenness, wild parties, and all that sort of thing. Let me tell you again as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the kingdom of God." Galatians 5:19-21, TLB.

The definition of worldly pleasures and entertainment expands: I "Stop loving this evil world and all that it offers you, for when you love these things you show that you do not really love God; for all these worldly things, these evil desires—the craze for sex, the ambition to buy everything that appeals to you, and the pride that comes from wealth and importance—these are not from God. They are from this evil world itself. And this world is fading away, and these evil, forbidden things will go with it, but whoever keeps doing the will of God will live forever." John 2:15-17, TLB.

Everything we do should be done in harmony with the name of Christ. "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." Colossians 3:17, NIV.




Definition of Entertainment

1. the act of entertaining; agreeable occupation for the mind; diversion; amusement: Solving the daily crossword puzzle is an entertainment for many.

2. something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement, esp. a performance of some kind: The highlight of the ball was an elaborate entertainment.

3. hospitable provision for the needs and wants of guests.

4. a divertingly adventurous, comic, or picaresque novel.4     


Definition of Pleasure

1. the state or feeling of being pleased.

2. enjoyment or satisfaction derived from what is to one's liking; gratification; delight.

3. worldly or frivolous enjoyment: the pursuit of pleasure.

4. recreation or amusement; diversion; enjoyment: Are you traveling on business or for pleasure?

5. sensual gratification.4     



Entertainment is an activity designed to give people a diversion. An audience may participate in the entertainment passively as in watching opera or a movie, or actively as in games.

Entertainment has been around almost since the beginning of human time, when early humans started painting in caves. The playing of sports and reading of literature are usually included in entertainment, but these are often called recreation, because they involve some active participation beyond mere leisure.9



Amusement is the state of experiencing humorous and usually entertaining events or situations, and is associated with enjoyment, happiness, laughter and pleasure. Amusement may also be experienced through the recollection of events which have given rise to amusement in the past. The word "Amuse" is so named from the opposite of "Muse"-to learn or to think.9



Pleasure is commonly conceptualized as a positive experience, happiness, entertainment, enjoyment, ecstasy, and euphoria. However, it is a difficult concept to define as the experience of pleasure differs from individual to individual.

People commonly experience this phenomenon through eating, exercise, sexuality, music, usage of drugs, writing, accomplishment, recognition, service, indeed through any imaginable activity, even receiving pain or suffering (the medical term for deriving pleasure from receiving pain is masochism) and inflicting pain or suffering (sadism). It also refers to "enjoyment" related to certain physical, sensual, emotional or mental experiences.9
