Digital Pilgrims: The Stewardship Of The Electronic World For the Glory Of God

Editorial Note: The following was sent to Digital Sojourner well in advance of this past Saturday’s Why We Web Conference by the author. Unfortunately, I was unable to post it until now. I decided to go ahead and post it at this late date, because the questions that Keith asks in the post are both challenging and helpful for the Digital Sojourner. –Scott

 


Introduction



 

For those who are attending the Why We Web Conference, I bid you welcome! In my keynote message we hope to address issues pertaining to the following questions (and more; note: they’re listed in no particular order.) For those who couldn’t attend WWW, keep your eye on Digital Sojourner in the near future for samples of the day’s ministry and events.

 


Questions to Consider



 

1. Time management: How much time do I spend online? How much of that time is work related? How much is entertainment? (e.g. social networking sites like Facebook; video games; blogs; newspapers, etc.) How much is overtly spiritual?

2. Do I spend more time using electronic gadgets than reading the Word of God? Do I avail myself of the electronic tools for Bible study? Do I have a Bible app on my smart phone (assuming you own one)? What about a Bible program on my personal computer?

3. How much time do I spend in prayer versus surfing the ‘net?

4. Do I ever listen to/watch sermons online? In downloaded mp3 format? Does my home assembly provide their teaching in this manner for re-listening to the messages at a later time?

5. Have I shared mp3 messages with friends? Links to video messages?

6. What do I listen to in my car? Do I have listen to the Bible in recorded form? Other messages? Christian music?

7. Do I read e-books (in epub or kindle, for example)? What do I read?

8. Have I ever posted a verse on someone else’s Facebook timeline for encouragement or as a witness? Have I done this via text-message?

9. Have I witnessed in a chat session before?

10. Do I ever read Christian blogs?
