Senior Pastor of New Covenant Church, Indianapolis
Interview starts at 7:20 and ends at 33:36
I think it’s a matter of accepting the change that God has provided with these tools, learning how to use the tools. For example, we could try to tell people, “Well, don’t go to the movies.” Well, they’re going to the movies. Teach them how to go to movies. With social media and all the rest, I believe we need to just focus on making it useful, making it fruitful, trying to remove distraction. In other words, let’s not throw it out because some people abuse it. Let’s be disciplined with it. Let’s have purpose for it. Let’s use it in a way that is productive. So I believe that rather than complain about it, let’s harness it like one may harness a wild horse. Break the horse, you know? Learn to ride it! Let’s ride this, and let’s make the best use of it.
