Albert Mohler Speaks on the Danger of Too Much Digital Technology
Covenant Eyes Radio – Episode 93
The Internet and digital media are full of advantages, but there is often a price we pay when we don’t have the discipline to unplug. Teens will often spend more than 30 hours a week online, and nearly one-third of teens say being unplugged from technology actually makes them feel more stressed. Is there such a thing as too much digital technology? And what is more time online really costing us?
Helping us understand this issue is my special guest, Dr. Albert Mohler, President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Mohler was recognized by Time.com as the “reigning intellectual of the evangelical movement in the U.S.” and is the author of many books on Christianity and culture.
Dr. Mohler talks to us about the need for Christian families to be deliberate about the time they spend with digital and social media.
