Am I partaking of evil by being entertained by it?

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. . . . And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. (Ephesians 5:6-7, 11-12)

Even the passive listening, watching, or speaking (in a non-reproving way) of the wickedness in our society is called fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Rather than skimming over the preceding verses, pay attention to the prohibition of the unfruitful works, not just the unfruitful workers of darkness.
