Culture today is very different from culture thirty years ago. More change has occurred in culture between generation z and their parents, generation x, than any other parent/children culture comparison in the U.S. This change is largely due to technology. Technology exposes and grants an access to the world that has never been available before. Everyone can have a voice and share their point of view without limit. This voice can be spoken in cyber space without the consequences that would occur during a face to face confrontation. Opinions are mass produced and range all over the spectrum from empty encouragement to harsh criticism. This amounts to a whole lot of words and a lack of relationships.
This video from Catalyst looks at Jesus’ life in scripture and discusses online etiquette based upon the way Jesus shared opinions and lived out relationships. It definitely hits some interesting points and it will help you stop and reflect on your online presence as a believer.
