Christian Apologist Says Social Media Like the Tower of Babel
Apr. 3, 2013 - In a video presentation Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias addressed the question, "Isn't Facebook bad?"
He likened the phenomenon to the earlier technologies of the printed page and photography. Methods of communication are not intrinsically
evil. It depends on how they are used. Admittedly, social media is making a huge difference in the world - fomenting revolutions and
making "corruption" the greatest problem facing humanity now. It threatens to be the Tower of Babel for our generation.
Zacharias encourages young people to use this "incredible opportunity to be a witness because of the capacities that are now invested in you."
He reminded them that Jesus said His disciples would do even greater things.
- "Become a peace builder, a bridge builder, not a destroyer, and the way you do that is through friendships and
relationships, and through authentic character."

The Bible Gained Six Million New 'Antagonists' Last Year (Infographic)
Mar. 27, 2013 - According to the new State of the Bible Report from the American Bible Society, Americans are drifting away from
regular reading of the Bible, and a larger percentage of the population is antagonistic to it. The study is based on an annual survey conducted by
the Barna Group.
The "Mosaic" age group (18-28)read the Bible the least, but surprisingly are the most interested in "receiving input and wisdom" from it.
Another confusing result of the study is the fact that 66 percent of survey respondents agreed that "the Bible contains everything a person needs to
know to live a meaningful life," but 58 percent said they "don’t personally want wisdom and advice from the Bible."
- More than 3 in 4 Americans say the country is in a state of moral decline—and almost 1 in 3 attribute the cause to a "lack of Bible reading"
(narrowly beating out "negative influence of media").
