Bitter Truth On Marriage (Part 29) The GSM Connection-2

wpid-modernmarriage-213x300.jpgEffective parents-children communication in the home has been severely hampered by the advent of mobile phones. Once the average teenager is busy with pinging, browsing or chatting, vital parental instructions are hardly heard or digested

Worse still, an inquiry in most cases, into the subject that holds the teenager?s attention upsets the moral sensibilities of such inquirer. Put straight, the mobile phone of today?s Nigerian teenager is used for perusing nude photographs of the opposite sex and other pornographic materials. This is a major contributor to the current decay in moral values, which has drastically increased reports of rape incidents by the media.

The common use of the mobile phone to lie over the user?s location is also one of the technology?s minuses. So many pre-marital and marital relationships have been broken through the use of the mobile phones. It has contributed to the rate of infidelity and the terrorist activity called rape has been executed using the mobile phone.

Desperate and misguided guys and ladies in search of life partners are also vulnerable. This is why it is wise for such people to carry God along in their search. ?Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God? (Philippians 4:6 NIV).

The use of Short Message Service (SMS) has contributed to the growing level of intellectual laziness. Most times, words in text messages are hardly spelt correctly. The poor performance of candidates at the Universities Technical Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) in recent years is one of the consequences of the SMS culture.

MEMORY VERSE:?Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6 NIV).

PRAYER POINT: I denounce every technological invention that contends with my relationship with God in Jesus name. Amen
