McCracken summarizes the current cultural dilemma with information and social media as three key problems:
Information gluttony – we have way too much information to digest
Perpetual novelty – we have a constant desire for everything to be “new” and “fresh”
“Look Within” Autonomy – we want everything built around us and our needs, wants, and desires
His solution, what he calls the “Wisdom Pyramid,” is a practical illustration to remind us where the primary sources of wisdom come from. Like the 1990s food pyramid, the Wisdom Pyramid tells us that our primary source of wisdom and truth must come from Scripture. And as you go higher up the pyramid, that input should have less authority and influence—ending with the internet and social media (ie: we should be getting the least, if any, of our truth from that source).
