Internet Filters

1. Internet content filters work to filter out harmful material on the Internet.

An Internet filter helps to protect loved ones and family members from being exposed to dangerous or seemingly harmful temptations that can be viewed, sometimes unwillingly, from online websites. This very popular and helpful tool can be used with computers in the home and work place.

2. A consumer needs to purchase both an Internet content filter and virus protection software.

In today's market of Internet filters, many software companies are offering software packages that include this tool along with Anti-Virus, Firewalls, pop up killers, and spy ware killers. Consumers can now protect themselves and their computers by installing one software program instead of a variety.

3. When using a public library, one can assume that users are protected by an Internet filter.

Not all libraries are using Internet content filters. Many libraries choose not to use these tools because of philosophical reasons. Financial reason may also make it difficult to utilize a program of this kind. Even if a library uses these, it should be known that persons with high tech computer skills could disable the filters. People should never assume, when using a computer other than the one they own, that there is software or programming in use to protect the computer that is being used.

4. An Internet content filter is expensive and the software is difficult to install.

Today's technology market offers Internet filters that are inexpensive and simple to install. Families and persons at risk of seeing harmful information, or those who find temptations hard to resist when using the Internet, should consider purchasing a program.

5. When we are tempted to sin, it is God who tempts us.

James 1:13-15 - Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
