The things of the world literally choke the word of God in us and puts us into the cycle of temptation and sin.  If we love the things of the world, the love of God is not in us.  It is no wonder that we fall back into sin if we do not cut out the things of the world:

Cleanse our hands and purify our hearts.  Submit to God by cutting out the things of the world.  Do not be double minded:

James 4:7-10 King James Version (KJV)

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.


We cannot say we love God if we have not surrendered to God.  Therefore, give up TV, secular music, movies, games and all the things of the world because these things choke the word of God in you.  If you really love God, keep his commandments.  They are not grievous.  These commandments are there to protect us from falling back into the cycle of temptation and sin.
