sermonette: Faith and Technology
David C. Grabbe
Given 12-Oct-17; Sermon #FT17-08s-PM; 20 minutes
Over the past 25 years, the Church of the Great God has assembled a massive library of digital resources as a service to the greater Church of God, as well as to the world at large. God performed this work at a fraction of the cost incurred by our previous fellowship. Though our main focus has not been to preach the gospel to the world, we nevertheless provide prodigious quantities of spiritual food to anyone interested. The world at large is receiving a witness. The things that we can quantifiably measure are not really important; the Head of the Church decides subscribers, members and income. Noah's warning was fruitless; Jesus Christ's ministry netted meager results. Without Christ, we could produce no fruit. What is important to God is faith—faith which He gives and by which we live. As technology becomes more affordable and available, the material world threatens to crowd God out of the picture. The information age will destroy us unless we learn to manage it properly, discarding carnality and diligently focusing on the Word of God.
