Redeem the Screen - First Christian Church of Decatur
Redeem the Screen - Web - Message Header

What is the one thing you don't leave home without… keys? Wallet? Number one answer - your smart phone. From the content we consume to the social connections it promises - these screens in the palm of our hands are woven deep into the fabric of our lives. In this two week message series REDEEM THE SCREEN, we'll explore the God's Word as it relates to the good, the bad, and the ugly of our screen time.

Verses to consider before posting on social media:

  • What goes into someone's mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them. - Matthew 15:11
  • Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues. - Proverbs 10:19
  • Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions. - Proverbs 18:2
  • The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint, and whoever has understanding is even-tempered. Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues. - Proverbs 17:27-28 (paraphrase of this passage is accredited to Abraham Lincoln as, "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.")
  • The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. - Proverbs 12:18
  • My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. - James 1:19
  • Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. - Ephesians 4:29
  • Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. - Colossians 4:6
