Since the New Testament doesn't specifically allow for using satellites and radio repeaters (much less telephones and walkie talkies) to spread the gospel.....is it a sin to use the radio and whatnot to teaach the bible? Would the proper way be to walk or swim to the locale in which you wanted to spread the gospel?

Advancements in technology that have taken place since 70AD are all pagan............I'm pretty sure that is in one of the Epistles, or maybe Revelation.

I guess we should all stop using the internet and this forum and ask for this forum and website to be shut down then.

I read something about Music in Church once too. Think it was in Psalms.

OH...... I feel SO sinful as I type this. Maybe I need to "repent" with three or four "Hail Mary's."

There is a reason why things advance.....if not for an advantage....then we best all become Amish and start using horses and give up the electricity and grow our own food.... Well at least we would all be eating better......

Perhaps the Hail Mary's can be recited in the Catholic Heresy thread. Better throw in a couple Our Father's too.

Whut? So you are not extending Grace to the cavemen? But they had advanced technology also, just ask the slime that crawled up out of the sea

We really should be cooking our food in an open pit fire. And crockpots...if you've ever used one for a potluck you've likely committed a grave error.

The caveman does deserve a measure of grace as well. I'll bet those cavewomen were tough. There is no way modern man could withstand the fury that a scorned cavewoman could bring.

does anyone think it was wrong for Paul to make tents, when God created rocks and trees?

what's the deal with vain man thinking they can create their own shelter?

:p

it's pretty cool how Adam and Eve made clothes out of fig leaves, but God made better ones for them out of animal skins (Genesis 3:21).

if not for that, i think nudists might have a valid argument.

The bible doesn't prescribe ball point pens, the printing press or p.a. systems either, but here we are :)
