Does Facebook Distract Me From God?

24 Oct

Update: post title changed

Or Internet? Blogging? Youtube? Twitter? MSN? TV? Texting?

“A little sleep, a little slumber,
   a little folding of the hands to rest,
and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
   and want like an armed man.” Proverbs 24:33-34

    If it’s so distracting why do AK have a blog, a facebook and a separate twitter page for football?! :P

    Fair point! It’s not really intended to be “anti-facebook” or anti-internet as such. Facebook is used in the title primarily to attract attention. I thought Harris presents quite a balanced view on using technology but found his personal experience very challenging upon reflection regarding my life. And on that note I better go do some work on that essay! Thanks for your comments and I love the picture Connor.

    I am a Facebook addict. I’d say it distracts me from life sometimes ;)
