If Paul Could Tweet →
Susan See, a missionary in the Middle East, wrote an article on technology and missions. In it, she wrote this:
"There is phenomenal potential for missionaries among Muslims to channel the Shepherd’s voice into the wilderness, summoning the lost through their cell phones and computers. The fields are white for harvest, and we have tools Paul could never have imagined."
Technology has given us the capability to connect in a way we never could have imagined. It's something missionaries of the past would have died for, and it's something we should be taking advantage of today.
This article gives an interesting look at what ISIS is doing to engage muslims, and how Christians could do a better job of spreading the Gospel in the same way.
"In order to more fully embrace this area for growth, let us embrace the techies among us. Mission agencies and churches ought to seek out and deeply invest in those with the technical talent and heart to shine light into the cyberdarkness ISIS spreads using the internet and phones. In fact, today’s Paul may well be sitting in his mother’s basement with a crumpled bag of Cheetos and a Bible next to his computer."
An interesting perspective. Check out the rest here.
