3GT Episode 224: They're not Called Wisephones

Need proof our listeners are a discerning lot? Then listen to the professor read a few letters 3GT has received. After these reminders of how he often has to deal with the unruliness of the pastor and the parishioner, the boys get down to business. They discuss the impact of smartphones and social media on the church, especially the youth.

Just another curmudgeonly episode? The 3GTers do not think so. For they point out the alarming statistics regarding smartphones, the problems unfettered use of them brings into the home, the lack of regard too many parents show, and the horrible consequences incurred by the undiscerning. They then offer a number of principles and admonitions regarding their use, encouraging the application of wisdom in the home and church by parents and elders. They also mention some possible resources, such as Tim Challies' The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment and David Murray's article on 10 Reasons to Train Your Kids in Cell Phone Use.

So whether you are listening on your smartphone or not, tune in and hopefully wise up with this episode of Three Guys Theologizing!
