More on the Internet
My first post on this blog was, interestingly enough, on the Internet. I've recently become more and more convicted by my wasteful use of time on the Internet. While there are many ways we can grow as Christians by using the Internet, most of what's popular on the Internet is not beneficial to our walk with Christ. It was not until recently that I began to see a lack of Christianity, in a way, in my life. I had completely separated church and Bible reading from the rest of my life. But God doesn't ask his followers to read his word fifteen minutes a day, he wants complete control over our lives. My thinking on this is that wasting time is a sin. If we're not always consumed by the gospel, we are at least lukewarm Christians, if not idolaters. So, I've decided to not spend time on the Internet. I'll still read the great blogs written by people like Dr. Al Mohler, and I'll still check my email, but if I feel like checking out the newest Diet Coke and Mentos video on YouTube, I'll read my Bible instead.
