It's a lot like when people stop reading only the pretty parts of the Bible and allow themselves to go to - take themselves to the not so pretty parts, that they can see the bigger picture.

Of course it should go without saying that there is a tremendous amount of useless, even harmful, 'information' on the Internet. But how wonderful that we can also find information online that can play such a major role in such major life issues. Now if only more people will venture into looking at the parts of the picture they haven't wanted to have to look at or acknowledge, and I do think more and more people are wanting to do that - for the integrity of their own lives.
