America, land of 1,000 addictions

Recently the London Telegraph reported that rising numbers of toddlers are so addicted to iPads they are unable to play with toy building blocks. Young kids increasingly “lack the motor skills needed to play with building blocks because of an ‘addiction’ to tablet computers and smartphones,” revealed the story, citing school teachers’ observations that “many children aged just three or four can ‘swipe a screen,’ but have little or no dexterity in their fingers after spending hours glued to iPads.”

Another shadowy category of casualties of the digital revolution, video-game addicts, attained official recognition in January when a new mental condition, “Internet Gaming Disorder,” was added to psychiatrists’ “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual” used for diagnosing mental illness. “When these individuals are engrossed in Internet games,” says the updated fifth edition, (“DSM-V”), “certain pathways in ...

Satan wants to take up all your free time so you never think about your soul or were you will spend the rest of eternity "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already" (John 3:18)

Much of what you say is true, Strat. When I included people, I meant that when one avoids those around him by choosing to engage with people on the internet, they end up interacting with the very kind of people that they, ultimately, seek refuge from. The grass is only greener on the other side because it needs more fertilizer.

The art of communication is quickly dying, when one drives the other is on the phone , when two go to dinner there each on the phone , the parents are losing there kids . Entertainment is the devils backbone .

Things like technology,Pets and posessions fill a void in people's lives,if people were better at being family,friends and spouses I guarantee things would be different,sure you have the occasional willing materialist who collects stuff just to have more stuff but many,instead of seeking God,seek things as a refuge from people who bring them nothing but pain,misery and heartache.....if you don't beleive in God or people anymore what is left but stuff and Animals....not saying it's right but it is plausible.

We have lost the ability (and even desire I dare say) to be involved with anyone on a truly personal basis. I have nothing against social media when used properly, but neither am I sure what "used properly" means to others. As a busy wife and mother to five, I have such full days I don't see how women have time to hang around Facebook and get anything else done! I see them as mostly robbers of time - that time is unredeemable!

"Open my eyes so that I may contemplate wonderful things from Your instruction."
"Keep me from the way of deceit and graciously give me Your instruction."
"Turn my eyes from looking at what is worthless; give me life in Your ways."
"I thought about my ways and turned my steps back to Your decrees.
I hurried, not hesitating to keep Your commands."
"You are good, and You do what is good; teach me Your statutes."

Psalms 119:18, 29, 37, 59, 60, 68 HCSB

So, so true. The age of technology has gone from the useful telegraph and lightbulb to beyond convenience and on to much darker things like weapons of warfare, big brother anti privacy, and a worldwide, dumbing down, full on addiction. Lives are contained in handheld computers that there are actually retreats and rehab facilities designed and built for to break the addictions. Kids sit across from each other and text, send dirty pics using Snapchat, toddlers, as mentioned, throw fits if they are denied their tablets, and adults are thrown into bonafide depression if they are seperated from social media. I know many women addicted to social media, with my wife and two sisters being a few of them. Facebook is the very first thing they do upon arising, they check it and post all day long, and it's the very last thing they do before turning in. I talk to my wife about it all the time, but she doesn't hear me. I can't imagine what she would be like to be around if she was deprived of her phone/tablet and just did some things around our home instead (for a change).
People seem to be talking less and less because all of their friends are in the palm of their hand and the kids are forgetting, or not learning at all, how to interact on a social level.
