Fear of technology can kill your business, ministry or even your job

If you are scared of technology, the internet or anything that is “the next thing” then you could be endangering your business, ministry or even lose your job–if not now, then eventually.

In history, technology has offered huge opportunities. From the printing press to breaking the sound barrier, we see how those who embrace tech advance in commerce, war and even faith. The Bible being printed caused a Reformation!

Today, things like Youversion.com and internet churches and tools are game changers. We are too close to see how “post PC” tech will truly change things, but it will and already has. The “post PC” lingo refers to iPads, smart phones and other tech that powerfully brings content, connection, and community to people. Facetime, Skype, and other tools mean you can see face-to-face people anywhere on the globe.

I am thrilled about the many possibilities of having a true global reach, even in a micro manner. Are you?

    1. Hi David. The distance between fear of tech and addiction is quite wide, I would say. I am just suggesting removal of fear so we do not miss on missional opportunities.

  6. I’m excited about the new things technology will bring, and it discourages me that some people are so resistant to it.

    1. It causes me a big sigh. The young adults of the Middle East could not influence without things like Twitter. We should take note.
