Excellent article!! We have become WAY to slack on personal study and living the Gospel. We can see it at church even among long term members. All of us are getting seduced by the ways of the world and how we spend our time online or with devices is truly astounding! Read many articles separate from Church sources about the addiction of adults as well as young kids on electronic screens and the side effects of it. From pornography to addictions to "perfect life" comparisons and bullying online. None of which are positive! Pres. Nelson was right to challenge us to a media fast from electronics. It's become a substitute for actual real life experiences. Before you conclude we're old fuddy-duddies let me say we are a middle aged couple who is very active in the local community, volunteering outside the LDS Church with youth and civic + charity programs and see what a drastic impact this is having with many people in their "Christian" lives. We mean ADULTS, not just youth. Very problematic, we need to be more aware. Many Sundays we see adults playing games and reading email or social media on their devices and NO it's not Church related material! If we can't give the Lord a few hours each week, what are we doing at Church to begin with? If you cannot attend Church and pay attention - there is a big problem. Satan is winning you over by distraction and manipulation folks. Wake up!
