The Band of Bloggers is a group of Christian folks who write blogs and get together for a workshop every second year at the Together for the Gospel conferences. Jared Wilson comments in this short video about maintaining integrity between the life we live online and the life we live in the real world. He also makes to bold statement that having an online identity, or a ministry, online which has no foundation in the real world would make us a fake.
His key point is that we need to blog about the gospel, not about how to make the gospel central, but simply to write about Jesus, who He is, what He is to us. I was very encouraged by this because that is the focus I try to maintain on this blog (see True, honourable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, praiseworthy).
Jesus is the Son of God, the Creator of the universe — if He cannot blow our minds with His glory and newness and innovation and sheer brilliance then we really do have stony hearts. I can understand that people who are not Christians cannot see the appeal in Christ, but for Christians to miss it and prefer the gadgets, glamour and glitz of the world is a symptom of serious sickness in our hearts.
