Nathan Bingham reminds us that the online world is not so far removed from the real one that it all happens without cost:
If we are all honest, we have all been enjoying “magic land” to some extent. Even if we’ve not been jeering from the audience our expectations have been high. We want immediate satisfaction and we want it for free.
Whether you’ve been in the audience or only sitting on the sidelines, at the very least my prayer is that this post will bring an issue to your attention. And then possibly, as you consider what a wonderful job many in the online Christian community do for the cause of Christ, you’ll change how you pray, use your finances, and use your words.
Ironically, as I type this my hosting service has gone offline. If only I was connected to the Internet at the moment I’m sure I’d get someone complaining. Why don’t I upgrade my hosting, you ask? After all, that’d be easy, inexpensive, and quick, right?
