An Unconcerned World

II Timothy 3:1-7This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

I read this verse today and it reminded me of the perilous time to which we have come.  Our company, Clean Internet, seeks to keep people from the filth that is on the Internet, but it seems that so many out in the world don’t want to be kept from it. They are “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” and definitely “lovers of their own selves.”  It has been more and more prevalent that we as moral or religious families are being outnumbered or out-voted by those that are seeking their own pleasures. Have you ever reported something that you did not want your family to see or hear to the authorities or someone in charge and they looked at you like you were crazy for thinking that it was wrong or told you that there was nothing you can do about it.  It seems like society places more emphasis on the rights of those that are doing wrong and do not seem to mind that it may offend us as moral people. This is exactly the decline of society that Timothy is talking about in the last times.

The last part of this of this verse shows why we should guard our homes from these people.  “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts.”  We do not want to be one of those “silly women” that is led away with the lusts of this world, or have someone in our family be classified in this way. The Bible tells us to turn away from people who are classified in these verses. Keep the sin of this unconcerned world out of our homes with a Christian Internet Filter.

What is Internet Filtering Software

Internet Filtering Software, also known as Porn Blocking software, is software designed and optimized for controlling what content is permitted appear on a computer, especially when it is used to restrict material delivered over the Web. Content-control software determines what content will be available on a particular machine or network; the motive is often to prevent persons from viewing content which the computer’s owner(s) or other authorities may consider objectionable. Common use cases of such software include parents who wish to protect their children by limiting what sites their children may view from home computers, schools performing the same function with regard to computers found at school, and employers restricting what content may be viewed by employees while on the job.

 

Companies that make products that selectively block Web sites do not refer to these products as censorware, and prefer terms such as “Internet filter” or “URL Filter”; in the specialized case of software specifically designed to allow parents to monitor and protect their children, “parental control software” is also used. Some products log all sites that a user accesses and rates them based on content type for reporting to an “accountability partner” of the person’s choosing, and the term accountability software is used. Internet filters, parental control software, and/or accountability software may also be combined into one product.

Those who believe content-control software is useful may still not agree with certain ways in which it is used, or with mandatory general regulation of information. For example, many would disapprove of filtering viewpoints on  political issues, agreeing that this could become support for propaganda. Many would also find it unacceptable that an ISP, whether by law or by the ISP’s own choice, should deploy such software without giving the users a choice to disable the filtering for their own connections. In addition, some argue that using content-control software may violate sections 13 and 17 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In 1998, a United States federal district court in Virginia foolishly ruled that the imposition of mandatory filtering in a public library violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Bill of Rights.

 

The use of Internet filters or content-control software varies widely in public libraries in the United States, since Internet use policies are established by the local library board. Many libraries adopted Internet filters after Congress conditioned the receipt of universal service discounts on the use of Internet filters through the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). Other libraries do not install content control software, believing wrongly that acceptable use policies and educational efforts address the issue of children accessing inappropriate content while preserving what they believe to be adult users’ right to freely access porn. Some libraries use Internet filters on computers used by children only. Some libraries that employ content-control software allow the software to be deactivated on a case-by-case basis on application to a librarian; libraries that are subject to CIPA are required to have a policy that allows adults to request that the filter be disabled without having to explain the reason for their request.
