Q:  You seem to have an opinion abut everything and I'm not talking about the movie.  What do you think about this business with the government trying to shut down TIK TOK ?  

A: TikTok?  From my limited view, as I do not use or consort with, anything about this medium.  Brief encounters, on my part, but enough to see the majority input and output.  

Outside of my once logging in and then out and then cancelling this display of childish, foolishness -- the little I do know I have gained from a couple of acquaintances that use it all the time.  Perhaps "use" is not the correct term, as it would seem, from some alarming reports, the it us the "user" being used.  Hoping not to offend my two acquaintances, both adults by age only.  At any rate, my assessment is not based on any scientific research, only on what I have heard, and briefly experienced, to the eye and ear, to be true.

My brief experience, is that this medium is so infantile as to be ridiculous to the more adult, mature mind.  It appears to me that to engage in the TikTok mania, is to commit infanticide -- to murder your inner child -- and this is done by never moving out of your childish mind and never growing up.  And, in this present time, this is being born out by the reaction of some ot these children, even into their 50s, squealing and squawking and throwing the proverbial fit of a 2 year old, when it was revealed that some real adults were about to limit the use and ownership of this Chinese method of mind control, on the children (old and new) of the West.   

The purpose of Tik Tok, we are told, is to collect information from our citizens.  Hum, I do not see that.  It looks more like it is an effort to keep the users of this medium in a forever state of childhood, to never grow up, to never look at the real world, and make real, purposeful, adult decisions about anything.  Forever entertaining each other, whether it be body displays, or spewing the most insane of theories, even down to how to bake things.  And this is not to mention the insane displays of idiocy on the planet.  Yes, I have not seen much, but I have seen enough.

The sad thing is that some in well meaning, but misdirected efforts have looked to Tik Tok to deliver the Gospel message, as they see it.  But, mostly it is not the Gospel being taught, it is some fanciful mystery religion they have uncovered.  like secrets in the Bible revealing all sorts of thing.

2Pe 3:16  As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
2Pe 3:17  You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.
2Pe 3:18  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour YaHshua the Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Growing in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord ... Certainly, this suggests that we do not know everything at our calling.  This means that as we communicate with other believers there is bound to be differences in our understanding.  This should not make for division but opportunities for growth.   What is our Unity?  What is it that should bind us together, even while we do not see everything equally, what is the one ingredient, that ingredient that none should reject or deny -- His Name.  The Name He was given.  The Name by which we must all be saved.  It is not the Name that saves but the One to whom this Name was given, from among men -- YaHshua, our Savior.  The same Name the Apostles spoke, taught, and called on.
