“People are sheep. TV is the shepherd.” ― Jess C. Scott, Literary Heroin (Gluttony): A Twilight Parody

I do believe I might substitute FaceBook (Twitter, Instagram etc)  is the Shepherd.  My dad always used teaching comparisons on us.  "If everyone jumps off the roof, are you going to jump off the roof? If every one runs on the edge of the cliff by the ocean, are you going to do it too?"  Social media is more evil than good in my eyes and experience. Most viewers are herded right to where they want you.  Social Media lives off chaos and conflict just like TV does. 

What happened to our nation?  We seem to have lost our touch with God.  We are still the 'sheep' but Jesus is no longer our shepherd, it is all the media in our lives. We want to be accepted so we join the herd. We have forgotten not just our faith, but how to think for ourselves. 

"For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened." Romans 1:21
