50 Reasons Your Church Needs Technology

church technology

It’s such a big surprise to me to hear Christians attacking in these times and age we are in. The that is supposed to be in the forefront of technology is behind and even trying to go behind the more. The 21st century advancement is a great blessing to the Church and a ‘digital ballistic weapon’ for global evangelism. Some folks complain about the so called satanic things found online and how our kids and youths are being exposed to . And my answer to them is ‘since we have left the Internet for the devil don’t we think he will maximize and dominate it? Don’t we think he will try to use it against us (just as he is doing)? If we don’t know what to do with technology he knows.

Few days ago my wife received an mp4 video on a phone from a friend. In that video a lady claimed God spoke in a Sunday Service that she should stop using a in an electronic device. That it’s replacing the Bible with technology. That she should go back to the hard copy Bible. She claimed God cautioned her and asked her to tell the world about it. But my question is, ‘Is God against technology? Does electronics or technology make the Bible less powerful or powerless? Is the Bible less the word of God because its electronic? Is the hard copy Bible not also a product of technology?’
