Internet Can Make You Happier?
I am sure you have read about the negative sides of the internet ranging from creating anxieties to people using it to commit crimes. Surprise, surprise on May 12th British researchers from Chartered Institute of IT ( Known as BCS ) found that people using the internet like bloging, social networking etc are happier. Appeared that people of lower income, from third-world, and women benefitted more than others. Hmmm...that's interesting,no wonder my other half enjoys her games on internet beside searching for information relating to health and communicating with friends.
However, no matter how good the internet is for our well being, we as Christians have to be cautious and discerning, in case we make the internet an idol.
Psalm 106:36 says "They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them."
Well, this verse is very clear. Having said that I have to watch out myself.
