5 Trampes de Mitjans de Comunicació Social

convidat procedent de Jessica Barefield

Permetin-me començar donant un descàrrec de responsabilitat. Aquest article no és sobre com els mitjans socials és el mal. S'usa amb moderació, amb la postura costat dret del cor, que pot ser una cosa meravellosa. El punt d'aquest article és assenyalar algunes formes en què els mitjans socials poden ser un parany per a la vida cristiana i per animar-lo a examinar el seu cor quan es tracta del seu consum de mitjans de comunicació social i participació. Aquestes són les cinc maneres en què els mitjans socials poden alimentar els nostres desitjos pecaminosos.

1. Els mitjans socials poden perdre el temps

Això és res que no hàgim escoltat abans, però val la pena repetir. Se'ns recorda a Efesis 5:16-17 que els dies són dolents i hem de fer el millor ús del temps que ens ha donat. Considerem per un moment el que podria estar fent en lloc de revisar tots aquests llocs. Mentre esperava en una cita, podíem mantenir una llista de persones a pregar per al nostre telèfon i passar aquests minuts extra en oració per la nostra família i amics. certament, en un moment o altre, tots som culpables de passar hores a Facebook en un dia i mai l'obertura de la Paraula de Déu. Atès que cada moment és un regal del Senyor, val la pena preguntar-se, "Hi ha alguna cosa més la pena que podria ser la despesa meu temps en?" La major part del temps, la resposta és probablement sí.

2. Els mitjans socials dóna una plataforma per a cada pensament

Crec que la solidaritat de la publicació en els mitjans socials que pot enganyar fent-li creure que està bé per publicar gairebé qualsevol cosa. ens queixem, que de forma anònima bash persones, ens faltem el respecte de persones en autoritat, i diem el que pensem sobre les celebritats, com si no fossin persones reals. I creiem que en realitat no han de respondre per qualsevol d'ell. No es deixi enganyar per la intimitat de la seva habitació ara mateix, no hi haurà res privada quan estiguem davant el Déu viu i donar compte de les nostres paraules. Mateu ens adverteix molt clarament, "En el dia del judici, persones es donen compte de tota paraula inútil que diguin. "Anem a ser recordat d'aquest advertiment, la propera vegada que actualitzem el nostre estatus.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Quan vam passar temps prolongat d'abocar més del que altres estan fent i dient, es crida l'atenció sobre totes les coses que no tenim o estem perdent de. Ens pot causar a preguntar-se per què les nostres vides no tenen el mateix aspecte. Per què no ho vaig pensar d'aquesta cita? M'agradaria tenir el seu sentit de l'estil. La seva nova casa és molt més gran que el nostre! Si no anem amb compte, trenta minuts a Facebook o Pinterest poden deixar sentir improductiu, no atractiu, i decebuts amb la seva pròpia vida. Hebreus ens exhorta, "Mantingui la seva vida sense amor als diners, i acontentar-se amb el que té, perquè Ell ha dit, 'Mai et deixaré ni t'abandonaré. "" Al final, podem estar contents amb les nostres vides com a creients perquè se'ns dóna tot el que necessitem en Crist. Pregunteu si l'ús dels mitjans socials està ajudant vostè creu que aquesta veritat.

4. Social media can fuel pride and keep you inwardly focused

Els mitjans socials poden convertir-se ràpidament en el nostre propi podi per l'auto-promoció. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Estem buscant la simpatia o l'elogi? ¿Volem ser ben pensat o presumir de les coses divertides que hem estat fent? Com es comprova constantment el nombre de "m'agrada" o "retweets" va aconseguir el seu lloc? Totes aquestes coses alimentar l'orgull i mantenim enfocats a nosaltres mateixos. Això pot ser un escull particularment difícil per a qualsevol persona que té una plataforma que s'estén més enllà dels seus amics i familiars. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, només perquè milers de persones estan escoltant no vol dir que tot el que ve a la ment és la pena dir. Hem de recordar que retweets, comentaris, i gustos no donen automàticament legitimitat al que publiquem. Déu veu la motivació dels nostres cors i mai es deixa enganyar per un pal ben elaborat. com Samuel 2:3 precaucions, "No seguir parlant amb tant orgull o deixi que la seva boca parlen tal arrogància, perquè el Senyor és un Déu que coneix i amb fets Ell es pesen ".

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

Per a cada benefici social mitjana té per a les relacions, hi ha un inconvenient. És fàcil mantenir-se al dia amb els seus éssers estimats (potser massa fàcil?). Encara té profunda, converses significatives en persona? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (potser massa?). Està sobresaturat amb els detalls de 300 vida de les persones que vostè no està fent una bona feina d'amants de la 10 les persones que es veuen setmana a setmana? Podem entrenar ràpidament a nosaltres mateixos a ser consumidors d'informació en lloc dels amants de les persones. Conèixer l'existència de la vida d'algú i compartir tot sobre la seva pròpia vida a través dels mitjans socials no és el mateix que ser un veritable amic. Per descomptat que Jesús és l'exemple perfecte del que significa ser un veritable amic. Com Jesús ensenya, "Aquest és el meu manament: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, que un posi la seva vida pels seus amics ". L'amistat és més que la suma de les actualitzacions d'estat i fotos. L'amistat és el sacrifici. Està tenint càrregues dels altres. No és només virtual ha de ser tangible.

    This is so true. I will openly admit that I waste hours and hours of my time and days on social media and all the points brought forward, I can directly relate to. I know in my mind and heart that I want to and have to cut it out, or greatly diminish it, but it isn’t easy. But the message you have conveyed and the words of God that you’re using to reinforce this speak to me clearly. Thank you for this article :)

  2. Tyronrespondre

    Very good read! Was never involved in social networks until a little over a year ago and these are some of the reasons why. I have actually been thinking about deleting my social networks to focus on what needs to be focused on. Lot of good points here. Thank you for taking your time to write it and share.

  3. Danielarespondre

    wow! So true. I definitely need to work on my social media intake. It’s very consuming one of the very reasons I stopped getting on Pinterest. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Staceyrespondre

    Thank you so much for posting this. I have been fighting with myself about getting on Facebook. Seems lately all it does is make mad angry. This was everything I needed to hear and will reread when I need to be reminded. Thank you and Trip. God Bless.

  5. Eulaivi Clutariorespondre

    You are an inspiration! So many good points you have here. Praise God for your wisdom that’s understandable and very relevant to our generation! :)

    I have been cut to heart by this powerful sharing. I believe we are all found wanting in this area. Thanks Trip and Jessica. May God continue to use you .

  7. senyalrespondre

    Thank you so much, for thelittle peoplewith out a voice it speaks numbers to think oursocialvalue is derived from social media. Thanks for the wake up call !

  8. Oyishoma Emmanuelrespondre

    That is so true. We waste precious time on social networks without purpose, and whenever purpose is not on ground, abuse is inevitable. I myself i’m guilty of this at times; but i pray for the grace to redirect my priorities.

  9. ADIN MOORErespondre

    This is a really good post. Thank you for sharing it with us, enjoyed reading it and it opening my eyes to the pitfalls of social media. :) gràcia & Peace.

    Exactly why I PERMANENTLY deleted my Fakebook in early 2012. Just like how I gave up cable TV in 2001, I don’t miss either Fakebook or TV. FB makes it easy to love yourself, which is idolatry. Being on the computer for work (video editing) is all the more reason why I do not want to spend time on it in my free time, but it is so easy to waste time on the computer. If I’m on YouTube, it’s to watch edifying videos from other Christians. I HIGHLY recommend every Christian to read this article: “Forming our Souls with Facebookby Shane Hipps (Second Nature Journal dot com)

  11. Barbararespondre

    Omg I was so convicted last week by exactly what you saidspending hours on facebook that should be spending in the word! I love this blogkeep the knowledge coming!

  12. Priscillarespondre

    I like your balanced position; not completely condemning social media, yet pointing out the issues/tendency for sinfulness. Reminds me of iLove.

  13. Rozrespondre

    Moltes Gràcies per escriure aquest. It is so very insightful and has helped me a lot in recognizing that I need to limit my time with social media. Many of the things you’ve described are all things I can relate to. Spending too much time on social media is not beneficial for my spirit your blog has really put it in words for me. Again thanks so much

  14. Adamrespondre

    This article caught my eye quick because my job is online and a big part of it is social media. Before this was my job I could completely relate to this. It really can be a time waster if there is no self control. It should be something approached with caution for sure!

  15. Naisharespondre

    I saw this link on my Facebook and was dreading to read it because I knew it would convict me and today I said, “D'acord… Let me have it.lol. Just about everything in here is true about how I spend my time online and I am going to assume that the person who wrote this article would not have posted this if she had not struggled with this herself in some way. So it is nice to know that there are other people who carry or did carry the same burden. At church you tend to feel like you shouldn’t admit to stuff like this, because we have created the idea that no one else struggles with it. Just the other day I was talking to my husband and telling him how I deleted some apps on my ipod (yes I still have an ipod and not an iphone, by choice) because it created unhealthy/ungodly thinking. I use to play Home Design where you can create your dream home and in turn I would become so depressed with the house we live in. I still love playing Mall World on FB and confessed to my husband that I like it because my avatar is someone I am not, she is pretty, skinny, independant and it is fantasy that I enjoy living through. Maybe I sound weird or people may think I shared too much but this is my own conviction. Thank you for reinforcing what I know by sharing your own conviction with us writer and other commenters.

  16. ChinaJohnsonrespondre

    I will be deleting my Facebook and Instagram for a while. This was my wake up call. My husbands has been telling me about this and the discontentment has gone too far! Thank you Jessica!

  17. RJrespondre

    Gràcies! I’m gonna take a week long break from Facebook, correu electrònic, and Instagram and work on those relationships I have with people I see in my daily life.

  18. Tylerrespondre

    Fantastic stuff! I’m a high school student and the part about putting so much stock into retweets and likes is so true! I definitely think their are some good things that can come out of Twitter/Facebook but it’s all about where you heart is!

    Really good post! Social media can be a little too much but when I see souls reach and they are planted into a church with their families and serving in church and in their community with the families.. That’s amazing to me.

  23. Keinyarespondre

    wow. This really spoke to me and I appreciate it. It’s so well articulated and has some great advice on ways to reflect. Gràcies!

  24. Jerdonrespondre

    I love coming to this blog and reading all of these awesome posts by Trip and his wife. Keep up the good work you two!!! Déu els beneeixi.

  25. katrespondre

    awesome read. admittedly, i spend too much time looking at pretty boys and pretty things and getting caught up by all these superficial things on tumblr that i tend to push God aside. it’s a sad, sad thing; i could be reading up on His word and spending more time with Him….thanks for the eye opener!

  26. Charityrespondre

    wow. I thought I was doing good because I was just on two networks. This definitely helped me check myself. I thought because I wasn’t sinning I was okay, and of course there is always room for improvement.

  27. Yashirarespondre

    God bless you for sharing this and thank you! This post just got me thinking about the time I waste with social media and its networks. It has helped me to re-think what I’m doing with time.

  28. Gràciesrespondre

    I agree with every point. I for sure have been avoiding instagram because I found myself comparing my self to other girls on there. It’s not good to feel ungrateful. I like looking at cute animals. Lol
    I considered deleting my fb, instagram accounts numerous times. I do think it’s good for keeping up with family members far apart though. :)

  29. home decorrespondre

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Gràcies!
