08/01/2008 13:17:00 Mass Comm. Four Reasons to Study: o Truth: It is worth pursuing, and as Christians we have access to Truth,  but we are not told everything at once. (Paul).  “Tell me the truth…” we  try to get to the bottom of what people are saying/saying about us.  **Proverbs 1:20** **Romans 10:12** o History is worth studying:  The knowledge of the past is a window of  the future.  Vowels (allows people to think abstractly because they  don’t have to think about reading.) Paper (carving on stone- time  biased society.  Papyrus- space biased society). The patterns of  human social reactions are intimately linked to the communication  medium of that time.  Comm is a powerful agent of change, the  lessons of the past are applicable.

False sense of control:  The news media not only tells us what  to think, they tell us what to think about.  Faulty beliefs: Crime is a major problem today (but crime is not  a major problem in their neighborhood. They assume its in the  inner city) o Difference between Media and Mass Media:
