First John chapter 2 says, “If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” For believers, loving God and the world at the same time is impossible.  We all face a great divide as the media and the internet call us to impurity.  Who are we going to love?

Jeremiah lamented, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick.” In the internet age it’s no surprise that immorality is rampant.  How can Christians protect themselves from the media onslaught shouting from their online devices and TVs?

It’s been said that America will fall, not by the guns of its enemies, but by the moral rot of its citizens. The more we’re “online,” the more we see perversity and immorality. Here is a call to engage those who use the internet and other forms of media which enslave us.
