Online Caution From NT Wright

I think Bishop Wright makes a good point for us to consider in the age in which we live. For the advantages that the online community does give, we must not neglect the real community around us – the one of our churches as well as in our neighborhoods.

What do you think of his thoughts?

    There goes my only (1/2 way) effective means of communicating:(

    Wright makes some good points. I feel that if Jesus was here on earth with us now, even with the existence of “blogging”, he would promote us (by his own actions) to be more out in the world dealing with the people first-hand rather than behind a computer. I feel love, as we are commanded to direct towards others, can be seen & felt in a much more impacting manner in a hands on, face-to-face exhibition of it.

    However, I still can’t deny the masses of people that were influenced, encouraged, motivated by the many writings of Paul and feel blogging, when directed towards others in a loving manner, can have that same impact to a larger group of people at times.

    I agree that if blogging is done, an equal or greater amount of person-to-person outreach and portrayal of love must be done, & a Rev. pointed this out to me in Paul’s life in an insightful manner (2 Cor. 10:11). We must be as we are in blogging the same in person. I feel that a person can be a hands-on, face-to-face Christian without being a blogger, however a blogger without actively loving in actions falls short of being a true Christian.
