Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
Matthew 7:9-10, and Luke 11:12
If your son asks for your love, will you give him a cellphone?
If your daughter asks for your love, will you give her an iPhone?
If your son asks for your love, will you give him a smartphone?
Millions of Christians, already addicted to mobile devices themselves, give mobile devices to their children for Christmas. These same Christian parents, who never considered the consequences of getting mobile devices for themselves, likewise never consider the consequences of giving mobile devices to their children. They, knowing what is good for them, give mobile devices to their children, who do not know what is good for them. These Christian parents had the chance to escape this mass addiction, their children do not.
You might as well give your child a stone, or a serpent, or a scorpion.
For that matter, you might as well give your child a carton of cigarettes, or a bottle of liquor, or a subscription to Hustler.
On Christmas–and every other day of the year–your lord and savior is not Jesus Christ, but your smartphone. Your god is Digital-Age technology.
You give up your freedom of speech for your guns, you give up your freedom of religion for your guns.
But you would give up your guns for your mobile device.
You would give everything you have for your mobile device.
Why, you might even give your soul for your mobile device.
You say I’m wrong?
Then prove me wrong.
