5 Zamke Social Media

Gost post od Jessice Barefield

Pocnimo dajući disclaimer. Ovaj članak nije o tome kako zlo društveni mediji. Koristi se u umjerenim količinama, s pravom stav srca, to može biti divna stvar. Svrha ovog članka je ukazati na neke načine kako društveni mediji mogu biti zamka za kršćanski život i da vas potaknuti da ispita svoje srce kad je u pitanju vaše društvene potrošnje medija i sudjelovanju. To su pet načina kako društveni mediji mogu hraniti naše grešne želje.

1. Socijalni mediji mogu gubiti vrijeme

To je ništa nismo čuli, ali je vrijedan ponavljanja. Prisjećamo se u Efežanima 5:16-17 koji dani su zli, a mi bi trebali napraviti najbolje iskoristiti vrijeme dano nama. Razmislite na trenutak ono što bi se moglo raditi, umjesto da provjere sve te stranice. Dok se čeka na sastanak, bismo mogli voditi popis osoba na molitvu za našu telefon i potrošiti tih dodatnih minuta u molitvi za naše obitelji i prijatelje. Sigurno, na jedan ili drugi put, svi smo mi krivi za trošenje vremena na Facebooku u dan i nikada se otvara Riječ Božju. Budući da je svaki trenutak je dar od Gospodina, to vrijedi pitate, "Ima li još nešto vrijedno što sam mogao provesti svoje vrijeme na?" Većinu vremena, odgovor je vjerojatno da.

2. Društveni mediji daje platforma na svoj svakoj misli

Mislim da je solidarnost postavljanje na društvenim medijima može vas navesti na razmišljanje da je u redu da objavite samo o ništa. Mi se žaliti, mi anonimno bash ljudi, mi nepoštivanje ljudi u vlasti, a mi reći što mislimo o ličnosti, kao da oni nisu bili pravi ljudi. I vjerujemo da stvarno ne moraju odgovarati za bilo koju od njega. Nemojte biti prevaren od strane privatnosti svoje sobe odmah sada neće biti ništa privatno kad stanemo pred Boga živoga i dati račun za naše riječi. Matthew nas upozorava prilično jasno, "Na dan suda, ljudi će dati račun za svaku bezrazložnu riječ koju govori. "Neka nam se podsjeti na ovo upozorenje sljedeći put ćemo ažurirati svoj status.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Kada provodimo produženo vrijeme izlijevanja na ono što drugi rade i govoreći:, skreće pozornost na sve ono što nemaju, ili su nestale na. To može dovesti nas na pitanje zašto su naši životi ne izgledaju isto. Zašto ne mislim o tom citatu? Volio bih da sam joj osjećaj za stil. Njihova nova kuća je daleko veća od naše! Ako nismo pažljivi, trideset minuta na Facebooku ili Pinterest može ostaviti osjećaj neproduktivno, neprivlačan, i neimpresioniran s vlastitim životom. Hebrejima nas potiče, "Drži svoj život bez ljubavi novca, i biti zadovoljan s onim što imaš, Ta on je rekao, "Ja nikada neće ostaviti niti te ostaviti." "Mi u konačnici može biti zadovoljan sa našim životima kao vjernika, jer smo dali sve što nam je potrebno u Kristu. Zapitajte se da li vaše korištenje društvenih medija pomaže vjerujete tu istinu.

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

Socijalni mediji mogu brzo postati naše vlastito postolje za samopromociju. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Tražimo simpatije ili pohvale? Da li želimo da se dobro sjetio, ili hvaliti zabavnih stvari koje smo radili? Da li stalno provjeravati koliko "voli" ili "retweets" Vaš post je dobio? Sve ove stvari gorivo ponos i držati nas fokusiran na sebe. To može biti osobito teško zamka za svakoga tko ima platformu koja se proteže iznad njihovih obitelji i prijatelja. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, samo zato što su tisuće ljudi sluša, ne znači sve što vam padne na pamet Vrijedno je istaknuti. Moramo se sjetiti da retweets, komentari, i voli ne automatski dati legitimitet onome što smo objavili. Bog vidi motivaciju našim srcima i nikada nije prevaren od strane dobro crafted postu. Kao što sam Samuelu 2:3 mjere opreza, "Ne držati govor tako ponosno ili neka vaša usta govoriti takvu aroganciju, za Gospodina je Bog koji poznaje i po njemu djela se važu ".

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

Za svaki koristi društvene medije ima za odnose, postoji nedostatak. Lako je držati korak s najdražima (možda previše lako?). Imate li još uvijek duboko, smislene razgovore u osobi? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (možda previše?). Jeste li prezasićena s detaljima 300 ljudi živi da ne radite dobar posao mila 10 ljudi vidite tjedna u tjedan? Brzo smo se trenirati sebe da se konzumenti informacija umjesto ljubitelji ljudi. Znajući o nečijem životu i dijeljenje sve o svom vlastitom životu putem društvenih medija nije isto kao pravi prijatelj. Naravno, Isus je savršen primjer onoga što znači biti pravi prijatelj. Kao što je Isus uči, "Moja komanda je ovo: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, da je život svoj položi za svoje prijatelje. "Prijateljstvo je više od zbroja ažuriranja statusa i slika. Prijateljstvo je žrtva. To je noseći jedan drugoga bremena. To je ne samo virtualno mora biti opipljiv.

    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. TyronOdgovor

    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. DanielaOdgovor

    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. Hvala što si podijelio.

  4. StaceyOdgovor

    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 ClutarioOdgovor

    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. CLARAOdgovor

    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 !

  9. Oyishoma EmmanuelOdgovor

    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.

  10. ADIN MOOREOdgovor

    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. :) Milost & 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)

    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!

  13. PriscillaOdgovor

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

  14. RozOdgovor

    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

  15. AdamOdgovor

    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!

  16. NaishaOdgovor

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

  18. RJOdgovor

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

  19. TylerOdgovor

    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.

  27. katOdgovor

    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!

  28. CharityOdgovor

    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.

  29. YashiraOdgovor

    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.

  30. MercyOdgovor

    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. :)

  31. home decorOdgovor

    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? Hvala ti!
