“Everywhere we go we are surrounded by screens. Have we entered a techno utopia or a virtual prison? Should we be unreservedly celebrating or cautiously analyzing? Has social media given us richer, fuller friendships, or have our relationships become robotized? What should we expect from the next generation, when the average American child has over fifty-three hours of screen time a week?

“Discover answers to these questions and more from church leaders, media experts, and inspiring individuals and families from across America, and learn how God’s Word addresses the unique media challenges which our captivated culture must face.” (Summary by Vision Forum)

    Boy do I have a lot of things I need to change where media is concerned. I feel like I have made a great start, but there is so much more I need to do.
    The devil is in the media, all kinds of it. I agree that it is a toxic dump. Everyone seems to be asleep to the things that are happening. The things that we are putting into our body through our eyes and through our ears are not healthy. Things are getting worse and worse as we are getting more and more numb to the things that we see on the screen. We need to hate evil. We are desensitized to the things that we are watching and listening to.
    Does the media that we listen to help us be more like Christ or less like Him? The influence of the media is very effective. We need to be way more careful.
    Addiction is real.

    I have watched this movie a couple times and learn something from it everytime. I especially love seeing that there are others out there who see the dangers of media, sometimes it feels like people look at you like you have two heads when you warn against media, so to watch smart, dedicated Christians talk about the dangers is really validating. This movie was also impactful for my media loving husband, it is one of the movies that got through to him. This time I really loved the talking about how we show our dedication by what we love, do we really love God. We are not teaching our children to avoid certain media because we are trying to be legalistic, but because we really love God and we really do want to serve Him. I loved that.

    This movie will challenge anyone, in a good way. If you feel that you aren’t addicted to media give this movie a watch, and you will find out just how ingrained media is in your life, and how much of life we miss out on because of our addiction to media.
