Why Blog?

Why blog? That's the question. Why would someone spend time typing words on a computer screen that go out into cyberspace and, possibly, be read by no one other than the one who wrote them?

Because words mean things. Words are important and they carry weight. God inspired a whole bunch of words which were put together in a book called "The Holy Bible." Obviously, words are important to Him. They should be important to us, too.

In today's day and age, the Internet is one of the greatest sources and vehicles for words, thoughts, and ideas. Yes, there is a lot of junk on the Internet (some have called it "world wide weirdness"), but it's also a fabulous tool for communication, persuasion, and information. Christians shouldn't run from the Internet, but neither should we approve of it uncritically. The Internet, including blogs, should be used for the glory of God (just like the printing press, newspapers, radio, and television). "Whether, then, you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all for the glory of God." (1 Cor. 10:31)
