I was considering how different things will be in a few decades with the growth of technology and the internet.
I think technology will completely change the dynamic of how information including the truth of God is shared.
The good news is that the media will not have complete control over what people can and cannot watch. People who seek information on the truth of God will be able to find it by using technology (provided the church does its job at providing those services). This site is a good example of that, but I think the catholic church in general as a lot of work to do.
The bad news is that there will be so many different versions of the truth that people won’t know what to think. People will also become less social and hide being their computer more often.
Education will also change and people won’t always need to be in a class room and listen to a bias activist professor.
I’ll be happy when TV dies and everything people watch is on demand and very selective.
Any know how the catholic church views technology?
I think it is a balancing scale that will be used by both good and evil.
I think the church should have an official site that helps people with their life in christ. I’m sorry but the vatican site doesn’t help people and their faith. It looks like the website of a corporation.
A few hundred years ago the church sent its priests out into the frontier to convert the natives. Now I think it needs to do the same with technology. The potential to reach people via technology is huge.
