Nobody Likes Leeches

Everywhere I go there are two groups of people most communities regard with suspicion - gypsies and squatters.  These groups traditionally take advantage of community resources without becoming contributing members of the community.  Consequently, communities reject gypsies and squatters and shove them to the outside because of their leech-like behavior.
Communities regard non-contributers with suspicion.  This [...]

Reaching the Online Generation Report

Sorry the posts have been a little scattered of late.  I just finished a year-long process of editing Scripture-only curricula designed to train church planters and leaders involved in Gospel Movements around the world.  Last week I was in San Jose to turn in my work and give a report on the things I’m doing [...]

2.  Create a group to welcome newcomers to Second Life.  This group would NOT tout themselves as ‘Christian.’ Have these members [...]

Is the Internet a Waste of Time?

Great question, but the better question is, “Is the internet a waste of MY time?”  A blanket judgment of all internet users seems rather foolish, especially when one person’s Call may require extensive use of the internet and another person’s Call may not.
Nevertheless, evaluating your time is an important part of accountability.  I ask myself [...]

  • About

    Who is God?' was one of the top three sentences googled in 2007, according to Google Zeitgeist. According to Alexa, the top two religious websites are Muslim, with BibleGateway coming in at a close third. The Online Generation is spiritual. They are seeking. And the church is the last place they would go to find spiritual fulfillment. This site is dedicated to those walking with The Online Generation and living lives of obedience to all the commands of Jesus Christ.
