Is Jesus the next killer app?

Friday, April 28th, 2006 at 7:45 am

I just read an online article, Is Jesus the next killer app? It talks about how churches are using more and more technology during their services. Following are some quotes from the article along with some Bible passages that came to mind as I was reading:

Article: It’s like going to a rock concert.

Bible: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2

Article: It’s a fact: Media helps make it easier for people to pay attention.

Bible: Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6

Article: At Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Ill., the technology budget is $1 million a year out of a total annual budget of $27 million, reported. This kind of spending attracts disciples (emphasis added).

Bible: And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12:32

I don’t know about you, but it sounds like the preaching of God’s word has taken a back seat to the production of some kind of performance.
