Church and Technology – Part2

If we are going to embrace technology then we must let go of how we think church should be. Embracing technology means letting go of some ways of how we “do church”. This might be the biggest reason why some people won’t embrace technology in the church.

We get comfortable with how church has always been and if that changes we freak out. Change scares us. Some think, “It worked for me…why change it?” Just because it worked for you doesn’t mean it will work for the next generation or the one after that.

To some it would feel like we’re committing a sin if we didn’t hand out bulletins or church directories. And how could we ever go to church where the preacher was on a video screen rather than standing on the stage? God can’t speak through someone on a screen! Give our tithes and offerings online? That doesn’t seem like TRUE giving. There is no way we could be part of a LifeGroup that meets online or even go to church online? That wouldn’t be effective.

All of these thoughts about “how” we do church must be open to this discussion. The one thing that must never change is the message of Jesus Christ. But our methods of how we communicate that message must ALWAYS change! Let Paul’s words challenge your thinking today. (1 Corinthians 9:22-23)

When I am with those who are weak, I share their weakness, for I want to bring the weak to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some. I do everything to spread the Good News and share in its blessings.

What are you willing to let go of so someone else can come to know Christ?
