Speaking with a fellow blogger today, I received this comment on an earlier post of mine. It is in relation to my question, would Jesus use social media if alive today?
After telling me Jesus is in fact alive, this followed…
This would be a terrible method of communication. If such an important message is to be spread throughout the world, relying on a few to tell the masses, it is a disaster waiting to happen. In an old place of work, a team building excersise highlighted the importance of communication to me. Seven or eight of us stood in a line and a message was whispered into the first persons ear. A simple message. When the last person stated aloud what he or she believed was said, it differed considerably.
We are all adults here, it’s common sense to understand how innefective such a method of communication is.
This also reminds me of a segment of this pretty funny, fairly rude, comedy panel show here in the UK, Celebrity Juice.
The challenge? Read the lips of the person speaking to you and pass it on…
In the words of Hitchens..
‘What kind of designer or creator only chooses to “reveal” himself to semi-stupefied peasants in desert regions?’
And why should we be surprised if it isn’t effective?
