revisionism and red flags
In the study of history there is always the red flag of revisionism. However, revisionism is not something of the past . With the advent and advance in telecommunications and social networking it is not hard to notice revisionism in contemporary action. Even pastors may be defined, or redefined, via social networking. This leaves open two possibilities, avoiding social networking altogether or approaching it as an avenue to share oneself rather than being defined by the daily and hourly suggestions of the friends and apps of others. In other words, sometimes being a little bit "anti-social" may be a good thing, especially if one is not going to be totally defined by others in the cyber social sphere or one hopes to share and define oneself publicly in a thoughtful and constructive manner.
