    I think the internet, like so many other temptations of life, is what you make of it. God gave the knowledge to the people who developed the internet and all that goes along with it. We have the freedom and ability to choose what we do with it. So, my idea is to “fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer, and perfecter of faith.” Asking him to guide and direct our paths down the “information highway” as we ask for His guidance in every other aspect of our like.

    The Internet and social media can become addicting just like anything else. So are your internet habits showing that it has become your idol, replacing God as the First Commandment commands us not to do? If it is taking you away from your God given mission in life, then it is bad. IF you are using it to glorify God and resisting temptation then it can be good. For me food is an addiction I face every day but alcohol is not. God has given us many gifts to live our lives. Are we using them to His glory?

    All of the above depending on how YOU use it.
