Bullhorn for the Common Man


August 14, 2014

Luke 12:3

Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

At the risk of inciting indignation in Classicists, I’m going to compare the Internet to the printing press. Most people are able to connect the dots from the invention of the rudimentary printing press, invented in the West by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th Century, and his subsequent dissemination of the Bible to many ordinary folk in Europe, to the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Age of Enlightenment, the American Revolution, the Industrial Revolution, and the Space Age. Following the Space Age is the Information Age, in which we now live. Not unlike the education of the masses through Biblical studies, made possible by Gutenberg and his Bible Project, the Information Age is about the sharing of knowledge and data with everyone who can be called human who gives a dang. So, before you historians put me on the rack, consider the ways in which the Internet gives power and influence to the common man:

The Internet, like other technological breakthroughs of the last few decades, has changed our lives in unimaginable ways.  Self-discipline, character, solid core principles, and temperance are more important than ever. The following verse should be very sobering to everyone.

Luke 12:3

Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
