You mean www.monergism.com's biased definition, after all they are commited Calvinists and besides the real issue is:
Are we faithful to the word of God or not, do we lead people to Jesus or away from Him, no matter what we might call ourselvest
I'm amazed at the hate towards things on the internet.
I use Facebook, in a limited capacity of course. I don't spend hours on it, I just scan down my list and see if there is anything interesting on it and close it again. I don't play games, I don't add random people I don't know and most things I've blocked anyway. I'm one of those people that don't add you unless I want to.
I also don't post anything up that I don't want others to see. So that means barely ever.
Internet Banking isn't as insecure as some people thing it is either. I work in the IT sector, and while I don't have a problem with internet banking, I'm also cautious. I never open emails that claim to be a bank. I never send credit card information over clear text in emails. It is common sense really. If you check your bank account daily as I have to then you know when something is awry. Also, change your passwords frequently.
As for viruses, don't download stuff you don't know. Be careful what you open. Most viruses come from illegal software and porn sites!
As for the actual article -- I believe there is such thing as internet addiction and many facebook users suffer from that as well.

MPIA Question for you, isn't holding men's persons in admiraton what some devote "Calvinists" do with John C the Dhordt guys even C.H. Spurgeon despite let's say their rough edges (the things they did and got wrong)?
John UK wrote: Brother Saint Michael, you have raised a most important question. So important that the Lord Jesus would have us know the answer and apply it, lest we be found both fighting against him, and causing upset and confusion in baby Christians. We have to understand both the working of Jesus Christ in the world, and through whom he is working (his servants), and we need to be sensitive and understand the present needs of the babe in Christ, no matter through whom God called them to himself. I remember as a very young Christian being given an LP record of preaching by a man called T.L. Osborn. It had only been in my possession about a day, and I hadn't even listened to it, but an elder and two others came from the church and served me with a Matthew 18:15-17. I hadn't a clue what they were talking about, I didn't know what was wrong with this preacher, and it was very scary. Besides which, they didn't serve the Matt 18 correctly, or only one would have come round to see me. What on earth were they thinking of! Scary stuff! This sort of thing is what concerns me, bro.
I agree with AMZ. The fact that they requested "Gay marriage is wrong" makes the whole argument redundant as they are ultimately making an attack. What do you expect? Of course they are going to get upset over that.
If they'd asked for a regular cake and they'd denied it, then you have an intolerance case. This whole article and video is self defeating and proves nothing.
