Christians have a long and rich history of adopting and utilizing communication technologies to spread the Gospel and fulfill the Great Commission(Matthew 24:14).
From the road system of ancient Rome to the printing press of the Reformation era, and from radio and TV broadcasts to the Internet and social media of today, each new technology has presented new opportunities and challenges for sharing the message of Jesus Christ.
Throughout history, Christians have recognized the importance of using communication technologies to spread the truth of Gospel. They have been early adopters of many technologies, recognizing their potential to reach new communities and share the message of Jesus Christ with a wider audience.
The printing press, in particular, was a game-changer for the spread of the Gospel, making it possible to produce large numbers of books quickly and cheaply.
Today, Christians continue to adopt and utilize communication technologies to spread the Gospel. Online platforms like social media, YouTube, and podcasting have become increasingly important for Christian communicators, providing new opportunities to reach people with the Gospel and to build relationships with believers and seekers around the world.
As communication technologies continue to evolve, Christians will undoubtedly continue to find new and innovative ways ( AI , VR , AR , Blockchain technology, and even Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) ) to use them to share the Gospel with the world. However, it's important to approach these technologies with discernment and wisdom, seeking to use them for the glory of God and the spread of the Gospel. Christians must be vigilant in discerning between accurate and trustworthy sources of Christian teaching and the proliferation of false teaching and misinformation online. By doing so, Christians can continue to utilize communication technologies to fulfill the Great Commission and share the love of Jesus Christ with the world.
