Episode details

In this episode, I talk about the recent proliferation of articles and essays that speak to the negative side-effects of social media, and how this negativity can be discerned just by examining the ways in which social media has changed since ts inception. I also talk about the good news of God’s rest as found in Christ and why Thomas Jefferson’s “version” of the Bible was a complete and utter failure.
