Christian Cool – it’s not a tool if it makes you a fool — 6 Comments

  1. I totally agree with you on this! But I’ve come to the realization and conclusion that this is a greater problem than the surface of it being a simple choice. We are now dealing with a very powerful addiction to the digital world, the same way a person can be addicted to a drug. In very high numbers. As I watch the general public walk around with their minds immersed in their phones all day long, at every single function, only half heartedly hearing or paying attention to the “real” people in their immediate vicinity. I truly think we are amongst… “the walking dead”… real life “zombies” to say the least! Sad but true.

  2. Romans 12:2 (KJV) ~ And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
    It’s a shame that a great portion of the Church has chosen not to believe this verse and continues to serve up a healthy dose of man made drivel every week.

  3. Last evening I observed a good young man let everything going on around him take a back seat to his addiction to playing video games. He’s 26, very intelligent, with a kind heart and noble character. He has a good job. Yet he has almost no significant relationships with anyone other than those who share his interest in “gaming”. Though he’s caring and loving, he has no girl friend. He has very little discipline for his health. His bedroom and the house he shares with his two renters is a pitiful mess that would be condemned if the fire marshal visited. He lives to play video games. I was saddened by the visit his mother and I made to see him in an effort to spend a little time with him.

  4. Yep…there’s an awful lot of conforming going on ’round here. Considering all the very cool tools we have to “transform”, you’re right…it’s a shame. Well, it’s good to see some like you, Steve, who use some of those tools. Keep up the good work.

  5. Wow…26 is an age where energy should abound…not merely the working of the eye muscles. Well, hope springs eternal, and I hope he learns sooner rather than later that it’s a good idea to get off the couch, or chair, or floor, and get outside and get some sunshine, fresh air, and move around.
