The question we posed in the last post was this: If it was possible to remove all of social media would your children be better off? The answer: not really. Social media isn't the problem. The heart is. The world, the flesh and the Devil will bring negative influences even if social media is not available. Here is what I Corinthians 10:31 and Colossians 3:17 teach:
If something cannot be done to add to God's reputation, that is the glory of God, with gratitude to God, in the name of Christ, it should not be done!
How is this a realistic, practical objective?
We learn from Psalm 139 that it is not possible to exclude God from any portion of your life. He is there whether you want him to be or not. He is impossible to ignore!
Thus, not consciously thinking how God can be honored in every action or thought can be seen for what it is – an act of rebellion to God! Not rebellion in the sense of shaking one’s fist in the face of God, but in the sense of ignoring the presence of God. He is too great and wonderful to be ignored.
