    Do you consider the internet evil?

    Post  Arik on Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:59 pm

    I came across a site called briskodesh.org and in it in a free online book you can download at the beginning the publishers make the claim that the internet is evil and one should not be using it (and if you must of course, then visit their website)
    Obviously we here are all on the net. and I know it can be used for both good and bad, but do you feel it is inherently evil?

    Basically, they are correct though. The internet is not safe for the observant. You can make it "more" safe, but inherently, the internet is a living breathing safehaven for scumbags and porn.

    for the most part... yes. but then again so is, for the most part, TV, movies... most things.

    Psalm 101:2-4 (not sure its okay to list the verse so i put the reference)

    I have gotten into more trouble on the internet than in any nightclub. I agree Yehudah, it does seem to be a safehaven for the worst parts of human nature. In part, I believe, because of its anonymity.

    Yup, you are right.

    We are adults and we can filter and navigate away from most of the filth... but our children cannot. Same thing with movies, music, and television.

    Think those things are bad for our kids? You should find out what they are teaching them in the public school system.

    ...treife to the nth degree.
