A Christian Counselor’s Perspective

In this video CCEF counselor Winston Smith talks briefly about the enslavement to TV and the Internet.

Winston hits the nail right on the head: the problem is not the technology but the human tendency to fill our lives with diversion, to make our lives about our own comforts and not about sacrificial love. The goal is not to eliminate technology but to use it in a way that reflects Christlike love.

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Philippians 2:4-8)
