Media Matters

formation_49

The Bible tells us that media matters!

WHAT WE SEE …

While it doesn’t use those exact words, that’s what it means. It says that a good eye lets in light, while a bad eye keeps you in darkness. In other words, what you see impacts who you become (Mt 6:22-23).

WATCHMEN ON THE WALL …

All believers must learn to be watchmen (Ezek 33:3-4). The watchman stands guard on behalf of the people. When the watchman sees a sword coming against his community, (s)he sounds the trumpet. It is then up to the people to decide whether they will heed the warning.

THE NEXT GENERATION …

In today’s virtualized culture, little eyes see things through media that is not always pleasing to God. Our next generation is already developing “bad eyes” that threaten to keep their souls in darkness. While it is not our job to judge people, it is our duty to warn them. 

SUPPORT AND WARN …

Pay attention to the media. Support good media. Warn against bad. When in doubt, use Scripture as your measuring stick. And be prepared to sound the trumpet when you see a sword coming against your family and friends.

In Christ!
