Ministers and Internet Safety

watch?v=M5rOn5AtBFgThe Bible calls ministers to be Sheppard’s over their people. What is the Sheppard’s responsibility as pertaining to his sheep?

The Sheppard was to protect, provide and lead their sheep in the way they should go. It is sad to say but today’s Sheppard’s are not heeding to these principles in regards to their flock (that is the people in their Church)

An area that is lacking is the instruction on the dangers of the Internet. The Sheppard’s in a vast majority of our church’s today are neglecting their God giving duty to warn and protect their flock.

Ezekiel 38:7 says Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

Pastors and church leaders need to address the problem of pornography and other social dangers that are on the Internet. The Internet needs to be monitored and filtered now this is just my opinion but I believe it is wrong to have unfiltered and unmonitored Internet in your home or office. The word of God and society itself are as a sounding horn warning against the dangers of unfiltered Internet in the home our workplace, and yes in church offices.

Ministers need to stand up and sound the horn against the dangers of the Internet and the need to have a good Internet filter and reporting system to monitor Internet usage.

Ministers be the Sheppard God would have you to be and guard your flock!
