Shane Vander Hart discusses how Christians should engage social media, promote civility, and discern fake news with veteran Christian blogger Joe Carter.----more----
Social media and the news has changed a lot over the last few years. How should Christians engage it? How do we discern what news is fake or accurate before we share it? How can we bring civility back to the social media realm?
Shane Vander Hart discussed this with Joe Carter. Carter, who has blogged since 2003, wears several hats. He is the communications specialist with the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, a senior editor for Acton Institute, an editor with The Gospel Coalition, and adjunct professor of journalism at Patrick Henry College.
