Illinois enjoying the sights we had come to love and had grown so fond of a car came whizzing up from behind The impatient driver of the car that was now dangerously close to our back bumper did not

in Anthony Barr s Blog Recently I read the book Grand Theft Childhood by Cheryl K Olson Sc D and Lawrence A Kutner Ph D The book was an exploration of the effects of video games particularly violent games on children The book was based on a research project funded by the Department of Justice that studied real children The book was published in 2008 To begin with I was pleased to learn that the book was both relevant and unbiased The book avoided picking sides i e the side that blames video games for every violent action and the gaming industry that denies media effects and contained some startling data Here are a few myths that the book showed to be untrue Girls don t play violent video games like Grand Theft Auto Speaking from personal experience I knew that this wasn t true But I

    at the artwork you spend all of your time texting totally focused on your cellphone screen and oblivious to the beauty surrounding you You re not really cheating the artists because your blindness doesn t detract from the beauty and majesty of the artwork but you are cheating yourself and denying yourself the delights of seeing and appreciating the artwork Today is Earth Day a day for celebrating the earth and calling attention to the continuing problems of pollution and mismanagement of natural resources Of course the environmentalists and indeed much of the secular or pagan world will spend the day worshiping the creation rather than the Creator c f Romans 1 As Christians this is a great day to especially focus on seeing and appreciating the beauty and design of God s creation and worshiping Him as our Creator Going back to the art museum analogy I d like to point out that as Christians we should be viewing our earthly home as an art gallery of sorts and we of all people should be most attuned to and appreciative for the beauty of God s creativity and artistry However just like everyone else in our technology infused world we often spend way too much time oblivious to nature It s as if we grow desensitized to nature s beauty We absentmindedly look at the sky and totally miss the big puffy clouds or the radiant sunset We see the flowers and the trees but it as if we are color blind and only see dull gray where there is a dazzling display of color In his book Desiring God John Piper makes a slight change to the answer to the Westminster Catechism s first question what is the chief end of man The original answer to the question is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever Piper changes the and to a by what is the chief end of man to glorify God by enjoying Him forever He then remarks that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him This principle living to glorify God by enjoying God and His gifts has forever changed my life In relation to today s post this mindset has encouraged and motivated me to continually cultivate an eye for beauty design creativity color etc in God s creation There s another book that has influenced a lot of people Ann Voskamp s A Thousand Gifts is a book that invites us to live in awe and wonder of God and His artwork and to cultivate thanksgiving and gratitude for the little gifts of life breathing the scent of a flower feeling the blades of grass between your toes etc I recommend that you read this book as well as Piper s book but even more importantly I recommend that you cultivate a sensitivity to the artwork of God starting today as we celebrate Earth Day Hits 21353 0 Comments 0 Episode 3 Desensitized and Numb Posted by Phillip Telfer on Thursday 18 April 2013 in Media Talk 101 Podcast Many Christians are becoming desensitized and numb by the media they carelessly consume There s a great need to guard the heart and to be re sensitized by God s word The Bible teaches that the mature in Christ have made it a practice to train their senses to discern good from evil Length 25 minutes Download Podcast To view the Ray Comfort interview mentioned in this podcast click here Audio clip

the entire Bible This is the fourth year in a row that I ve completed this Media Talk 101 Bible Reading Challenge and it s not easy but it s certainly rewarding When I began to follow Jesus at the age of seventeen I realized that I had never read all the way through the bible even though I grew up in a strong Christian home I decided I would forgo all other elective reading until I had read through the word of God entirely How else could I learn to discern what was right or wrong in other books that I might read Since then my love for the scriptures has grown and my appetite for its daily sustenance has increased Continue reading Hits 44284 0 Comments 0 Episode 2 But it Doesn t Affect Me Posted by Phillip Telfer on Thursday 11 April 2013 in Media Talk 101 Podcast A common defense by
