Is internet dating destroying love
So the world was made to be good, but what does that have to do with everything decaying? Well God, being all-good and all-knowing, intended for all of us to live a perfect life, aided by the real, true goods He set out for us.However, when we rejected those goods through sin, we created a disorder, an evil that He never intended.Following from these cautions, I would think the best think for us to do is to act like Christians. Paul said, “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Furthermore, Christ died and rose for us, so at the very least we have something about which to be joyful.Thus, we need to show the inherent goodness of the Christian life and its virtues through living them out.Even from a non-Catholic perspective, one hears about too many crimes to remember just by turning on the radio or reading some Internet headlines.For example, I recently read about a man who was shot dead just before his girlfriend gave birth to twins.On the other hand, it is definitely true that it is very difficult to “keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you,” as Rudyard Kipling put it. Of course, each virtue creates specific joys; for example, courage gives a person the strength to do heroic things in spite of fear.
This means that indeed, not one man, but everyone suffers as we become desensitized to evil, mistaking it for good, rather than something that needs to be eradicated.Furthermore, from my observations of relatively ordinary non-religious people who are not convicted criminals, they seem selfish and inconsiderate as a rule.But, I’m not envious of their “happy” religion-free lives either.In that situation the consequences for fornication are so big that even if the couple in it are responsible and get married, they are still closed off to other possibilities.
