Albert Mohler Calls for More Christian Bloggers to Engage The Culture
^
Albert Mohler, CBMW Council Member and President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, addressed the attendees at GodblogCon last Thursday, November 8, 2007. This gathering for "God bloggers" issued a call for more Christians to engage culture through the new media options available on the Internet.
-
Mohler said that the Christian faith is tied to communication. Believers should be known as people who have something to say because language is a unique gift from God to humans and is essential to the spread of the gospel message. We can use more than words, but never less.
-
Unfortunately, sin has distorted this gift into mistruths, propaganda, slander and other snarky communications that you find in the comment sections of many blogs. Anonymous posting and commenting is a temptation to be avoided. "Don't write what you wouldn't want your mom to read," said Mohler.
-
Mohler suggested that blogging was a natural extension of other technologies, such as the codex, printing press, radio, and cassette tapes, harnessed by Christians over time to communicate gospel truths around the world. He argued that this medium will endure because of its lower cost, greater segmentation and accessibility, rapid timing, and appeal to a younger generation.
-
Therefore I will try to use this blogger GROW BY LEARNING as a means of bringing some thoughts about our culture and our churches.
