There seems to be a debate among some about whether the web is the future. I don’t think it is. I think the future holds things far more sophisticated than the web as we know it. The simple fact is, the web is the present.

We can decry it. We can wish it weren’t so. But the fact of the matter is, it’s here. It’s reality. In fact, it’s almost history.

It would be a sad thing for us to wait until the web is old and worn out to jump in and put it to use for the kingdom of Jesus Christ. Connecting with the culture is biblical. Paul said “I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some.”

“Ok, so you’re saying we do whatever we have to do to fit in and reach people.”

No. That’s compromise.

Just previous to Paul’s statement above, he said “not being outside the law of God.” We preach Christ. We preach the Word. It’s all about God. We don’t throw all that out. But we are to work within the context of our own current culture. And the fact is, the web is absolutely integral to that.
