As I see it, one of the problems with the online world is that it is a giant distraction that keeps too many Christians busy with things of little value and takes up time that could be better spent in more meaningful interaction with others, reading and learning, and real life service. In many ways, the digital world is a pseudo-world that is too often inhabited by people who are looking to escape real life and the demands it makes on each of us. While I do not think the internet is all wrong, or inherently evil, I do think that it has to be used carefully and in moderation. It should never be a substitute for real involvement in the church or in the lives of others who live around us. And we must not spend endless amounts of time surfing here and there, for the simple reason that there are far more important things to do.
