I have never been very "technologically-savvy". I freely admit that. At the same time, I have never felt completely comfortable with those who shun all technological advances. I mean, I am comfortable with the people. The people are lovely. But the stance they take is one I am not sure fits every one.
I think technology CAN be used for good. I have beautiful friends who use their websites and blogs and online stores to proclaim the gospel, to share Jesus, to bless. And I think it is wonderful.
But I won't deny I am not entirely comfortable in the online community.
Just the wording- interNET, world wide WEB... leaves the impression that you can easily be caught, trapped, snared.
And many are.
Just today, entirely by accident (and with good filters in place!) I stumbled upon an atrocious site. Despicable. I won't even repeat what I saw there, except to say I prayed afterwards God would cleanse my mind of those images.
It makes me sad. Frustrated. Concerned.
I don't have a whole lot of answers. I mainly just want to say, be careful, friends. It is a dangerous world out there. Pray. Seek God. And remember not to set any evil thing before your eyes.
Psalm 101 stands out in my heart.
Let us keep our hearts pure before Him, beloved.
