That definitely sounds correct.
I've often wondered, if I spend less hours in the week in the scriptures, than I do watching TV, what's getting stronger?
Also, at the very bottom of the downward cascade of Romans 1, is the following:

Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Murder, adultery, and vile acts used to bring the death penalty.
Would I ever invite people into my home, to do those very things in my living room?
Well, I guess I have, on the tv, for entertainment, i.e. "have pleasure in them that do them".
How often I safely dissed myself from the things in that downward cascade of sin in Romans 1.
Only to find out, that there I was, all along, at the bottom of that slime pit, wallowing in line 32.
