Online communities can offer a welcome sense of camaraderie and fellowship.
But, they can also create a perceived sense of anonymity, and an â€œescapeâ€ from reality.Â Behind the virtual wall of the computer screen weÂ â€œlearn to be idlers, going about from house to house, and not only idlers, but alsoÂ gossips and busybodies, saying what they should not.â€Â (1 Timothy 5:13)
In this technological age of blogs and social networks, our fingers have become a virtual extension of our tongues.
“…but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil,Â full of deadly poison.” ~James 3:8
