The title of this blog comes from Philippians 4:8, which says, "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." My goal—on the internet and in real life—is to take every thought captive to make it obey Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5) and to encourage others to do the same.
internet and social media are not conducive to complex, detailed
dialogue about important issues. It favors hasty, insufficiently
supported, decontextualized, emotionally driven, relationally
insensitive responses. We ought to fear a society in which citizens
develop whatever communication skills they have by immersion in this
environment-- especially because this is increasingly the society in
which we live. We are steadily cultivating an exceptionally vocal
culture of inept communicators.
