Neumann, Jonathan Neumann

Social media is a prevailing force in the world today. It shapes the way that people view the world. Consequently, social media affects the way that people think and act. In particular, social media caters to the natural tendency of the sinful nature to worship self. This promotes a theology of glory which seeks to avoid suffering and obtain pleasures. Through an examination of the theology of glory, the theology of the cross, and the curved-in essence of the sinful nature, as well as the core principles of social media, this paper seeks to demonstrate how social media fosters and inflates our inbred tendency to think with a theology of glory.
