Things as They Really Are--A Warning

Which picture is fake and which picture is real? Read Elder Bednar's talk to find out the answer and why it is important.

“Nearly 40% of men and 53% of women who play online games said their virtual friends were equal to or better than their real-life friends, according to a survey of 30,000 gamers conducted by … a recent Ph.D. graduate from Stanford University. More than a quarter of gamers [who responded indicated that] the emotional highlight of the past week occurred in a computer world.”

I would love for everyone I know and love to study this article. It is not an easy read, or a short read, but very powerful.

My husband and I laugh about the way we sit a few feet from each other in the office. We are each on our own computer and we flirt with each other through facebook. After reading Elder Bednar's talk, maybe it's not so funny.
