a call for parental and pastoral control!
The World Wide Web is gradually turning into a wicked wild world. The girl child is facing dangerous threats to her life everyday on the internet. The advent of mobile devices with internet connectivity for social networks has greatly increased these dangers. In fact, the more social networks she joins the more the danger she faces. There seems to be a fight to take over her social and moral life daily. It is sad to see that the church had ignorantly allowed the devil to keep winning this fight. However, we are here to awaken our spirit and put an end to this satanic victory with the mandate of Jesus Christ for the salvation of the child girl. To call for urgent parental and pastoral control, I will be highlighting 10 threats that face the girl child daily on the internet; they include:

1. Addiction is a brain disorder characterized by a loss of control. Addicts continue their use despite adverse health, social or legal consequences.
2. Compulsive behaviors despite consequence in a bid to re-experience the initial thrill or highness.
3. It is a progressive disease, with the user needing a larger quantity / frequency of substance, environment or persons to achieve tolerance and dependency effect.
Please note, Addiction is a DISORDER not a DISEASE.
Again the personality of Addiction is NEUTRAL. Meaning you can be addicted to anything. In fact, in the general sense of the word, addiction is universal. People are addicted to things, places and feelings. So, addiction in a sense is not bad, what is wrong is what each person is addicted to. So we have Negative addictions (Rom. 7:15) and Positive addictions – (Matt. 6:33).
The Struggle for Dominance
There is a constant struggle to maintain order and balance. The negative influence and the positive influence are always in an intense struggle for dominance. Read this:
Galatians 5:16-21 (KJV)
16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17[For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.] 18[But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.] 19[Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are ] these[; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,] 20[Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,] 21[Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told ] you[ in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.]
Addiction to vices are classified as negative. I life that is full of these negative addictive behavior is a life without boundaries. A life without respect for laws and rules. A life of unbridled attitudes, actions and affections. A life that is not sensitive to others. What we call negative addictive behaviors are therefore fruits of a life that has no respect for boundaries.
