I recently saw a news story about a website that is gaining popularity at an incredible rate. In fact, the site snagged one million new members last month alone. I won’t share the web address, because it’s not a site I want to encourage you to visit (if you’re anything like me, you’d be googleing it as soon as you read it, just to satisfy your curiosity). But, I do think that it’s worth mentioning the site’s premise.
The website is designed as a place where users can play a virtual fashion game. The ultimate goal is to “become the hottest, coolest most intelligent and talented [girl] the world has ever known.” Sounds easy enough right?
You gals are sharp! You are always asking questions that stretch me and challenge me to dig deeper into God’s Word. I love that about this blog! Recently one of you asked a great question about whether or not God’s Word allows us to enjoy media focused on magic and fantasy. I think this a great question, and to be honest it is one I’ve not thought much about before. Together, let’s explore this topic and see if we can dig up some Truth.
A friend of mine recently endured a painful breakup. Within a few days, all 239 of her Facebook friends knew that her relationship status had changed. In fact, I was one of the hundreds of people who received a mini-feed in my inbox telling me that she was now single. Next to the newsflash was a cartoon broken heart. It seemed like harmless fun, but the reality was that she was really hurting.
All of this made me ask a question that Nancy and Dannah address directly in Lies Young Women Believe, do the benefits of our constant media use really outweigh the harm?
Several of you have asked us for tips on how to start a Lies Young Women Believe Bible study. We think this is a great idea! In fact, we are praying that God will use you as truth speakers for your generation. We want to help you in any way we can.
