    I think its great how churches are using the media as a source to reach out to the unsaved and lost. Do you think that by growing the religious community one digital media, this will encourage people to be more ethical in their decisions online? There are some down falls to how social and digital media are changing religion, you see people preaching the wrong message or using a religious icon as a way to bash others who believe God. I like to think that growing the church community over time will only bring great outcomes. In my class we have been discussing this week how religion in digital media may lead people to be more ethical. I believe that if people stop and ask themselves if what they are doing will make them and others happy they may make better choices online. I also believe that if people have a religion they follow they will be less likely to lie and steal online which we are seeing a lot these days. I think setting examples online for our young is very important and I feel using religion to encourage the young is a great idea to better digital media.

    In a fast paced and technologically enhancing life it is very important for us to preserve our culture & customs.

    In Today App Market, there seems to be Apps for everything. Our culture & customs are not only restricted to books, temples, churches or Mosques. You will find many such religious Smartphone apps you would think are popular, the 'Bible' app recently passed 100 million downloads. Even you will find some Apps-Catalog , where anyone can gain access to Category of Religious Apps & Download it.

    Thank you Deseret News for allowing me to make my posts. I'm pretty religious posting. This is the only place I post. you have an exclusive. I guess a lot of people are a lot more religious than me. Religion is only what you do religiously.
