John Piper: Facebook vs. The Bible

John Piper writes:  Why should we think of the Facebook app threatening the Bible app? Why not the Bible app threatening the Facebook app, and the email app, and the RSS feeder, and the news?

Resolve that today you will press the Bible app three times during the day. No five times. Ten times! Maybe you will lose control and become addicted to Bible! Again and again get a two-minute dose of life-giving Food. Man shall not live by Facebook alone.

I’m serious. Never has God’s voice been so easily accessible. Let the Bible threaten your focus. Or better: Let the Bible bring you back to reality over and over during the day.

So… truth be told… which do you check more… Facebook or the Bible?  If your answer is Facebook, how does that make you feel?
