Technology is a gift from God. Using Technology to glorify God and edify the saints is a good thing. For thousands of years God has given humanity technological gifts and seemingly they have been good for man but in turn mankind seems to forget who the giver is.
We are living in the 21st century and what seemed like an impossible challenge some 2,000 years ago of “Go yea into all the world and preach the Gospel” does not have the same challenges. With airplanes we have the ability to be in just about any country in the world in about the same day. With the Telephone we can speak to just about anyone any where in the world and with the Internet we can speak, send email or messages and even video conference around the globe. Technology has brought the great commission into reach for anyone.
In the first thousands years after Christ was crucified the scriptures were barley available to anyone but God saw fit to send us a printing press. History teaches that In Germany, around 1440, a goldsmith named Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press, which started the printing revolution. Modeled on the design of existing screw presses, a single Renaissance printing press could produce up to 3,600 pages per workday, compared to 40 by hand-printing and only a few by hand-copying. Gutenberg made the very first “printed book”, which was… have you guessed it “The Bible.”
A goal of Bible-Byte.com is to use Technology to glorify God and edify the body of Christ. Technology is a tool that can be used to:
- REACH lost souls with the good news of the Gospel.
- TEACH people about who Jesus Christ is.
- EDIFY the body of Christ.
God is the giver of every good and perfect gift. We must give him credit for his goodness. We must use it to give Him Glory.
When technology is used to distract us from doing God’s will or when it becomes a stumbling block it is no longer a treasure but a tragedy.
Don’t let technology distract you from serving Him instead use His gifts to bring him Glory and allow it to help you tell His story.
If Bible-Byte.com could help you to reach lost souls, teach people who Jesus Christ is or edify the body of Christ send us a message below. If is is God’s will for us to work together for His Good and His Glory then I am sure we can make something happen.
May God bless you and use you all the days of your life.
