The 2020 Church: What’s Your Say?
I saw this joke somewhere and decided to bring it up here. It trended some months ago though, and while it is funny, it raises some concern if this will negatively impact ‘true fellowship’. In my view, people will be more involved with gadgets than with God. Already this is happening as worshippers are seen pinging during service (I am guilty of this *covers face*) or secretly whispering into their phones while the message is ongoing.
Please read the joke and express your thoughts on whether this development is healthy or puts the church in jeopardy and what the body of christ can do.
PASTOR: Praise the Lord.
PASTOR: Can we please turn our tablet PC, iPad, cellphone, kindle bibles to 1 Cor.13:13. …! And please switch on your Bluetooth to download the sermon.. .. !
PASTOR: Let us pray committing this week into God’s hands. Open your WhatsApp, BBM , Twitter and Facebook and chat with your God.Come on…
PASTOR: Please have your credit and debit cards ready as we shall now take tithes and offerings. You can log on to the church Wi-Fi using the password Lord909887.
[Ushers circulate mobile card swipe machines among the worshippers. Those who prefer to make electronic funds transfers are directed to computers and laptops at the rear of the church and those who prefer to use iPads allowed to flip them open. Those who prefer telephone banking are allowed to take out their cellphones to transfer their contributions to the church bank account!The holy atmosphere is truly electric as the cellphones , iPads, PCs and laptops beep and flicker!]
