Collegiate Chapel - April 19, 2017

This week in GCA’s collegiate chapel service, Pastor Dalton Stoltz spoke to the students concerning their use of social media as Christians. He offered a series of fifteen questions, explaining each in detail, in order to kick off a meaningful message which considered how social media could potentially affect their lives. A few of these questions include:

  • Are you seeking to glorify God through social media? (1 Corinthians 10:31)
  • Does social media lead you to sin? (Matthew 5:29)
  • Does your speech build people up or tear them down? (James 3:10)
  • Do you value social media interaction more than real-life relationships? (Leviticus 19:18)
  • Do you have any relationships through social media that you need to cut off? (1 Corinthians 15:33)
  • Do you use social media to boost your ego? (Mark 8:36)
  • Do you use social media to hide? (Proverbs 25:14)

After asking and explaining these questions, along with others, Pastor Stoltz encouraged everyone present to become more aware of how and why they are involved with social media. He concluded that Christians must “properly prioritize” the things in their lives, being sure to orient everything back to Christ in order to establish their identity in Christ for the purpose of glorifying His name above all else!
