4 Myths about using Technology in the Church



“He gave God no glory and taught sin,” – Rachel Hockenbarger, spokesperson for the Westboro Baptist Church explaining why the congregation protested the funeral of Steve Jobs. Details about the protest were given by the Church to the public through a Twitter app on an iPhone.
“ When Bible study can be done on Facebook as easily as in the church basement, and a favorite preacher can teach lessons via podcast, the necessity of physically gathering each week in the same place with the same people turns remote. Without a doubt, this represents a new crisis for organized religion, a challenge to think again about what it means to be a “body” of believers.” – Lisa Miller expressing her concerns in her article My Take: How Technology Could Bring Down the Church
 “The Bind leading the Blind – This occurs when no one has thought through the reason for a website, there is a clear lack of clarity of vision and purpose. Sadly, we’ve seen several churches hand-off the website design process to people who do not have the experience to navigate the complexity and buy-in to lead the vision to succeed. The end result is noise/clutter and unclear direction for the website.” — Drew Goodmanson explaining 1 of 6 ways churches fail with their websites.
“Should Christians use online dating services? Yes, and with gusto! Online dating doesn’t correct the well-documented imbalance of devout Christian women (abundant supply) to like-hearted men (a paucity), but it at least widens the net for Christians seeking partners.” – Messiah College anthropologist Jenell Williams Parris responding to the question “Is online dating for Christians?”
