Friday Night Article

Pastor Steven Birnie

.

Good evening from Scotland and welcome to the Blog Page of our Online Bookshop. For those visiting for the first time, my name is Steven Birnie and I am a local church Pastor from the North-East Coast of Scotland and together with my wife Sharon, we own and operate the Christian Back to Basics Online Bookshop. We post regular articles here on our Blog for our friends and internet visitors to enjoy and for some time now, we’ve been uploading a Friday Night article for our friends to enjoy so tonight, I thought I’d share a little about Christian social sites and forums due to the ever-increasing popularity of these modes of socializing on the net.

.

We’ve been a part of various Christian Forums, social sites and Q&A for quite some time now as a means to create awareness and interest in the Back to Basics as well as to have some great fellowship with different Christians from around the globe. It’s something I personally enjoy very much at this stage of our own Christian walk as we are very much in a more relaxed local church role, due to the birth of our two new babies so it’s giving us both a great chance to learn and be challenged.

.

I have to say, I was one of the world’s sceptics when it came to Christian Forums as I’ve always been an advocate, and still am an advocate, of Christians attending their local church and some have asked me, “will there come a time where we will have cyber churches?” After having spent much time on these forums and social sites I must say the answer would have to be a no, and this isn’t due to these sites not being beneficial to a Christian because they are and in some cases hugely however, the internet in many cases is just far too limited in so many ways when it comes to holding an assembly of God’s people.

.

Now I’ve seen God clearly at work through forums and I’ve had some great advice and encouragement from Christians and Pastors but the plain fact with the internet is, we just can’t perform the aspects which come long with an assembly of God’s people. For example, we can’t lay hands on others, baptise individuals publicly, see the reactions of others, put our hands on a shoulder to comfort, sit and have a coffee and talk, the list kind of goes on so, it is a limited activity when it comes to the church however, it’s certainly not limited when it comes to a resource for some fellowship and social time. These forums can provide a great insight for many with access to very experienced Christians indeed whom they might have never met before, you can meet new friends and prayer partners, you can ask questions and have a range of differing viewpoints and again the list goes on. So there are many pro’s and con’s to the forums however used correctly, I think it’s a valuable resource.

.

One in particular is a great favourite of mine and the one which we use on a regular basis called Christian Forum Site. It’s one of the biggest forums on the web today and the Christians who use the site, are from all different ages and backgrounds and come from all over the world. It’s a very well run site in that there are very experienced moderators who oversee the site to ensure there are no troublesome situations or offensive language or gestures being used but at the same time, they seem to manage to allow some very spirited debates and exchanges which benefit all who read. I’ve been very blessed meeting not just experienced Christian and Pastors but young and experienced Christians too seeking friendship and social time. It really is one of the best sites we’ve used and we’ll continue to do so for some time.

.

One aspect which I find really encouraging is the level of respect for the local church as well as the encouragement of Christians joining themselves to a local body of believers and for that, it’s a little extra special for me. It can be difficult and challenging at times even on the best of forums but if there are good moderators who are truly spirit filled Christians, then this can be a great experience for a believer of any age to grow and be challenged, so I’d recommend it to any. If you’d like to join Christian Forum Site then please click on the CFS icon on the right hand side of our Blog, registering is easy and free and as always, the only way to find out if you like it is give it a try, so I hope you enjoy.

.

God bless and have a blessed weekend in the Lord.
