Preach to Reap in His Time

One sows to the Spirit (one does good by preacheing to build faith) => One reaps from the Spirit (one receives life eternal – something good, i.e. here on earth [salvation] or there in heaven [the great reward])

IN DUE SEASON WHENEVER THAT MAY B IN GOD’S TIME

​Galatians 6:6-10 ESV

Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. [7] Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. [8] For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. [9] And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. [10] So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

Google may frame, shape and distort how we see the world

Try searching “Did the Holocaust really happen?” in google. What is the top 5 impression of answers? 3 No and 2 Yes. So did it or did it not happen? I’m not highlighting any arguments but first impression counts and google does provide much first impressions. The main thing is that google is not authoriative and will search for truth and lies. I agree with the article title that Google may frame, shape and distort how we see the world. What do you use google for?

In light of poverty in the thrid world setting, my view is that people should have access to resources irregardless of wealth – if all they can afford is a handphone.

Strategy

Many of the resouces online nowadays especially on search engines and social media comes in bits and peices, at a price or unreliable. There are most prob harder to find “hidden gems” articles and resources in the internet which are more reliable and exhaustive, and tools which can help lay christians to soar from “zero to hero”, a kind of self-help for those who cannot or are not willing to pay for content. Good to make good gospel resources free for all. Sometimes, creating content also helps in our thought processes and we can “sharpen each other”. This initiative is by no means substitution for fellowship in bag and church,more to suppliment and build Christians in this age of digital media.
