5 Trampas da Social Media

hóspede post de Jessica Barefield

Déixeme comezar por dar un aviso. Este artigo non é sobre como os medios de comunicación social é mal. Usado con moderación, coa postura do corazón dereito, pode ser unha cousa marabillosa. O punto deste artigo é apuntar algúns camiños que os medios de comunicación social pode ser unha trampa para a vida cristiá e incentivos-lo a examinar o seu corazón cando se trata do seu consumo de medios de comunicación social e de participación. Estes son cinco formas que os medios de comunicación social pode alimentan nosos desexos pecaminosos.

1. Os medios de comunicación social pode perder o seu tempo

Iso non é nada que non teña oído antes, pero paga a pena repetir. Somos lembrados en Efesios 5:16-17 que os días son malos e nós temos que facer o mellor uso do tempo que se nos deu. Consideremos por un momento o que podería estar facendo no canto de comprobar todos os sitios. Mentres espera a un nomeamento, poderiamos manter unha lista de persoas para orar por noso teléfono e gastar os minutos extra en oración por nosa familia e amigos. seguramente, nun momento ou outro, todos somos culpables de gastar horas en Facebook nun día e nunca abrir a Palabra de Deus. Xa que cada momento é un don do Señor, paga a pena preguntar-se, "Hai algo máis útil que eu podería estar gastando meu tempo con?" A maior parte do tempo, a resposta é probablemente si.

2. Os medios de comunicación social dá unha plataforma para o seu pensamento, cada

Eu creo que a solidariedade de publicar en medios sociais poden te enganar e pensar que é OK para publicar calquera cousa. Nós queixamo, que de xeito anónimo bater persoas, que desrespeitar as persoas en posición de autoridade, e nos dicir o que pensamos sobre famosos, como se non fosen persoas reais. E cremos que realmente non ten que responder por nada diso. Non se deixe enganar pola privacidade do seu cuarto agora, non haberá nada privado, cando estivermos diante do Deus vivo e dar conta das nosas palabras. Matthew nos advirte moi claramente, "O día do xuízo, as persoas van dar conta de toda palabra inútil que falar. "Imos lembrar deste aviso a próxima vez que actualizar o noso estado.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Cando gastamos tempo prolongado derramando sobre o que os outros están facendo e dicindo, chama a atención a todas as cousas que non teñen ou están perdendo. Pode causar-nos a cuestionar por que as nosas vidas non teñen o mesmo aspecto. Por que non pensar que a cita? Gustaríame ter o seu sentido do estilo. A súa nova casa é moito maior que a nosa! Se non temos coidado, trinta minutos en Facebook ou Pinterest pode deixar sentir improdutiva, pouco atractivo, e decepcionados coa súa propia vida. Hebreos nos exhorta, "Mantén a súa vida libre de amor ao diñeiro, e se contentar con o que ten, pois El dixo, 'Non che deixarei nin te desampararei. "" Podemos, en definitiva se contentar con as nosas vidas como crentes, xa nos é dado todo o que necesitamos en Cristo. Pregunta a si mesmo se o uso de medios de comunicación social está axudando a crer nesta realidade.

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

Os medios de comunicación social pode rapidamente tornar-se o noso propio podio para a auto-promoción. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Estamos buscando simpatía ou eloxios? Queremos ser ben pensado ou gabar as cousas divertidas que temos está a facer? Constantemente comprobar cantos "gustos" ou "retweets" seu post ten? Todas estas cousas abastecer orgullo e manternos concentrados en nós mesmos. Esta pode ser unha trampa particularmente difícil para quen ten unha plataforma que se estende máis aló dos seus amigos e familiares. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, só porque miles de persoas están escoitando non significa que todo o que vén á mente vale dicir. Debemos lembrar que retweets, comentarios, e gustos non automaticamente dar lexitimidade ao postamos. Deus ve a motivación dos nosos corazóns e non é enganado por un post ben traballada. Como Samuel 2:3 coidados, "Non seguir falando tan orgullosos ou deixe a súa boca fala tal arrogancia, porque o Señor é un Deus que coñece e por accións Him son pesados ​​".

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

Para cada beneficiar a comunicación social ten a relación, existe unha desvantaxe. É doado de manter-se coas persoas que ama (quizais demasiado fácil?). Aínda ten profunda, conversas significativas en persoa? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (quizais demasiados?). Vostede está saturado cos detalles da 300 a vida das persoas que non está facendo un bo traballo de amar o 10 persoas que ve semana para semana? Podemos rapidamente nos adestrar para ser consumidores de información en lugar de amantes de persoas. Saber sobre a vida de alguén e compartindo todo sobre a súa propia vida a través dos medios de comunicación social non é o mesmo que ser un verdadeiro amigo. Claro que Xesús é o exemplo perfecto do que significa ser un verdadeiro amigo. Como Xesús ensina, "O meu mandamento é este: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, que o que dá a súa vida polos seus amigos. "A amizade é máis que a suma das actualizacións de estado e imaxes. A amizade é o sacrificio. E tendo os fardos uns dos outros. Non é só virtual debe ser tanxible.

    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 :)

    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. Danielaresponder

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    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!

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

    Thank you so much for writing this. 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

    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!

    I saw this link on my Facebook and was dreading to read it because I knew it would convict me and today I said, “Ok… 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.

    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!

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

    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!

    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!

  27. Charityresponder

    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.

    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.

    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. :)

    excelente 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? Grazas!
