Does "all the world" include Cyberspace?
Listen, my friends. This is my way of introducing a topic, and the topic is the preaching of the Gospel on the Internet. Please let us focus on the topic.
Jesus said we should go into the world, and wherever we go we should preach the Gospel. Some of us have learned to carry the word in our heart, and even in our pocket, and we give it out wherever we go.
And sometimes we "go" onto the Internet. Seems we can go all over the world that way.
Sometimes we give the Gospel to someone and that person says, "I do not need it". It may be that they have already heard it and rejected it, and they do not wish to hear it again. We have learned not to give that pearl to those who do not want it, but we might persist until we are confident that it is the true Gospel they have heard. (There are false gospels. See Galatians 1). But some turn us away because they say they have already accepted it, and do not feel the need to hear it again. Some ask us to tell it to someone else, but some seem to never tire of hearing it. "Those who know it best seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest".
That is how it happens that we say to everyone "how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures".
Is it appropriate to say it here?
Bible Answer: As with gathering together (Heb 10:25), there is something different, dare I say missing, when we don't proclaim the gospel face-to-face. Moreover, Romans 10:15-13 requires someone being sent. While one could claim one is sent when they preach over the internet, even radio, TV and other mediums ... we phyiscally need to go and preach. However, we could use many tools in working for Him. Yet, I fear if we let people hide away, there could be lack of growth.
