Is The Internet Of The Lord

Is the internet of the Lord? If so, how come there is no mention of it in the Bible? Is something automatically wrong simply because its not mentioned in the Bible? If so, why are all you people looking at my blog right now? And why do we judge things like birth control this way?

Not included in that list are the several Nuclear Instruments of the Military both and abroad (Soviet Union, Uk and France).

We lost 2-3 Nuclear subs each with 1-2 reactors and about 240 Nuclear Warheads containing Plutonium(24 Missiles X 10). They are at the bottom of the Ocean floor in meltdwon. We don't know how many fromer Soviet Union ships sank or were left to sink/decay that had Nuclear missile etc. Couple that with all the Military nuclear sites in both the US and the Soviet Union. And you get a number much higher than 300.
---John on 4/6/11


I can find reference to four large-scale commercial reactor meltdowns (Lucens 1969, Three Mile Island 1979, Chernobyl 1986, Fukushima 2011), plus ten other smaller ones: NRX Ontario 1952, BORAX-I Idaho 1954, EBR-I Idaho 1955, Windscale England 1957, Sodium Reactor Experiment California 1959, SL-1 Idaho 1961, Fermi 1 Michigan 1966, A1 Czechoslovakia 1977, Saint-Laurent France 1969+1980, plus a few soviet nuclear submarines.

You said there were 300. So which 283 meltdowns did I miss? Can you point us to a list?

Even in Chernobyl, the core never even breached the basement. While nuclear plants have their dangers, so do non-nuclear plants. One cannot reach objective conclusions with hysterics and exaggerated statistics.
---StrongAxe on 4/6/11

Do you know that coal- and oil-burning plants release more radioactivity than nuclear plants do? (StrangAxe)

Extremely misleading StrongAxe. If you compare a Normally functioning Nuclear reactor to even a human being,the reactor would still release less radiation. Since they do not realease anything at all.

The number is more than 300 Meltdowns. And Chernobyl(Russian for Wormwood) was not the worst. We had a meltdown in the late 50s in Idaho. Were you aware of that? NO!

Try to figure out where I got the 300 number from.
---John on 4/5/11

John--There is a downside to everything...even things that God made. Fire can warm you or burn you. God made it that way. Nobody guarantees it will absolutely do one but not the other.
Whatever you choose in life, you choose on the basis of "risk" versus "benefit". You take the information available to you and decide what risks you are willing to take for what benefits.
---Donna66 on 4/5/11


Do you know that coal- and oil-burning plants release more radioactivity than nuclear plants do? Radioactive carbon is in everything, and the more you burn, the more radioactive carbon dioxide is released. Uranium is more concentrated, and spent fuel rods are buried, much less radioactivity is released. Many more nuclear plants run for decades without incident than fail.

Heading to the earth's core? That's pure hyperbole. Even Chernobyl, our worst disaster, which had no containment structure, didn't even get down to the water table. The earth's crust is a mile thick in the oceans, and much thicker on land. We don't have the technology to penetrate it even if we WANTED to, let alone doing it by accident.

Steven G, you said:

ALL science and techology? Really? Does this include basic engineering, as used in architecture and making wheels for ox carts and chariots? Basic chemistry, as used in building fires, cooking, and winemaking? Basic mathematics, as is used in counting, ..---StrongAxe on 4/5/11

We're agreed on this subject...scripture agrees also.
Job 38:2
Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
Proverbs 24:4 by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
Eccl 7:12
For wisdom is a defence, money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
---Trav on 4/5/11

The point is if it has a Dark Side. Its NOT from G-d.

Here's another miracle of Science and Technology...

NUCLEAR POWER... They told us it would be a 10 billion to 1 chance for any type of Meltdown would ever occur.

Well so far there has been at least 50. Some heading to the Earths Core (AKA: China Syndrome=End of The World).

With 3 new meltdowns in Japan. The world will all now pay the price of these Marvels of Science. (Satan)

---John on 4/4/11


You said:


ALL science and techology? Really? Does this include basic engineering, as used in architecture and making wheels for ox carts and chariots? Basic chemistry, as used in building fires, cooking, and winemaking? Basic mathematics, as is used in counting, commerce, calculating calendars, and making furniture and buildings that stand up straight? Metallurgy, as used in smelting metals for weapons as well as precious metals? Because all of these sciences and technologies were taken for granted in biblical times, with nothing being said against any of them.
---StrongAxe on 4/5/11

steveng-- Exactly. Would you place your health care in the hands of medical marketers?
That's why many of these products cannot be obtained without a physicians permission.
---Donna66 on 4/4/11

Donna66: "Genuine medical science doesn't promise "miracles"...or claim to have a perfect cure for what ails you."

Have you seen some of the commercials that air on TV or printed in publications? They make it sound like they are miracle workers. Many people fall for these advertisements - even christians. Sure, medical companies don't literally promise, but surely instill promises. That's marketing.
---Steveng on 4/4/11

The bible tells us that no thing is evil of itself, but Our reaction to it is good or evil. Believe me, the prince and power of the air will use the net for evil, but what he intends for evil, God will use for good. The blessing is in the hands of his annointed. Jesus Is Lord
---Joy on 4/4/11

Genuine medical science doesn't promise "miracles"...or claim to have a perfect cure for what ails you. (Only hucksters do that, but of course, the stats alone show them to be wrong).

When you are sick, it's entirely up to you what you choose to do about it.

---Trav on 4/2/11

Steven G, lets be honest here, wasn't it you who denies the power of God? You said,

Christians today have only the knowledge of God, but deny his power. This is why most christians cannot perform miracles greater than Jesus."

You deny the power of God in Salvation. Now you say others do. No one is questioning the power of God in healing. You said Satan was the cause of every problem, then you accuse man of making medications that are wrong. Then you insist we should make greater miracles then Jesus. He saves sinners, do you? He restores arm's which are not there, He walks through walls, sight to the blind, He comes and goes to heaven and to earth, you insist man can do greater miracles. Can you show how much greater?
---Mark_V. on 4/2/11

Excellent points Steveng
---John on 4/2/11

Donna66: "What miracle has man ever performed? Do you think MAN is responsible for all the cures of modern medicine?"

Would God have man create medication that have side effects worse than the disease? Would God have man develop a device to eliminate cancer only to find that same device destroys more than just the cancer - even death?

God's healing does not have side effects, only pure healing. Christians today have only the knowledge of God, but deny his power. This is why most christians cannot perform miracles greater than Jesus.

MarkV, It could be over preaching, but I believe most Christians are very lacking in discernment and fall prey to Satans fruits all the time.

So if seems to you like I'm saying Satan is under every rock.

I feel there is a need to wake up Christians, because most are ignorant or uncaring of what Satan is.

They perceived a dark ugly demon. In fact he is the most beautiful temptation out there. Otherwise we would not have sinned.

The Lord wants us to be aware of Satan moves and his deceptions.
---John on 4/1/11

Donna66, I have to admit this is a very difficult area.

Because who would not shed tears about a 3 year child diagnosed with an agressive brain tumor with less than 3 months to live.

Then her parents take her to St. Jude where she receives the latest technological breakthrough and is cured.
---John on 4/1/11

John, you have given many good points on Scripture, but this one I disagreed for the very reason that people like Steven, blame all the problems always on the enemy. They see the enemy in every corner of every street. Even to the point of making him Omnipresent. We should have a good knowledge of who he is, but not to the point of raising him to the throne. That was my the only reason for answering your quote.
---Mark_V. on 4/1/11

steveng--//People today depend on the miracles of man than the miracles of God.//

What miracle has man ever performed? Do you think MAN is responsible for all the cures of modern medicine? God has graciously shown men some of the secrets of how the body works...and placed in the minds of some, the means to combat some of the crippling, killing things that come against our bodies.
Lives are prolonged and people have more time to hear the Gospel and act upon it.

Surely you don't believe man is capable of figuring this all out for himself! In fact, the more that is understood, the more apparent it is that we understand little.
Our main fault is when we fail to give GOD credit, rather than just man.

John-- Whoever mentioned Aunt Mabel?
//ALL of the items you mentioned have a Darkside, don't they?
People have died from Medical Science//

Guess what, everybody dies! But some have a chance to live or have their lives extended, because of the knowledge God has shared with doctors and scientists.
I'd be wasting my breath if I asked you to compare lives lost with lives saved by medical intervention. So I won't try.
---Donna66 on 4/1/11

Steven G, you said:

"It is satan who causes ALL problems in the world."

Well, now that you believe what you said, I suppose you can sin all you want since it is satan who is responsible. Great. This way, all God has to do is judge Satan, and forgive all the sinners, since it was not their fault. While at it, why don't you rewrite Scripture, and say, "therefore, just as through one "angel" sin entered the world, and death through sin"
Yea, lets change the meaning of that verse. Lets blame Satan as Eve did, or lets blame the women whom God gave Adam.
Steven, Even the death of Jesus was on account of sin.
---Mark_V. on 4/1/11

I never expressed or implied Satan should be feared or has any of the abilties you posted about.

So I don't know what you are talking about.
---John on 3/31/11

John, again I disagree with you. Satan is indeed fearsome. In 1 Peter 5:8 we are told that "your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour" But we are not to respond in sheer terror. Satan may be stronger that we are, but Christ is stronger than satan. The Bible also declares, "He who is in you is greater that he who is in the world" Satan is after all a creature. He is finite and limited. He is limited in space and time. He is never to be regarded in any way equal with God. He is not divine.
---Mark_V. on 3/31/11

Mark_V.: "[satan] is not Omnipotent as God is. His power only goes as far as God permits it to go."

That's true, but you greatly underestimate the power of satan.

Mark_V.: "Humans who are sinners cause most of what goes wrong in the world. They are responsible because of sin."

What causes humans to act as they do? "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." It is satan who causes ALL problems in the world.
---Steveng on 3/30/11


So if there is a Darkside, then it's NOT from G-d.

Satan told Eve to eat of this beauitiful fruit and she would SURELY NOT DIE. She gained knowledge/didn't die/immediately

Satan told Jesus he did NOT need to suffer/crucified, but he would give him everything on Earth right now!

"It is HARD for a Rich man to enter the Kingdom".

Satan wants us to be comfortable in his kingdom. So he heals/does somegood We then Idolised the good(Medicine). He does this to make us NOT hunger for Heaven/therefore become complacent. DISARMING US!

Use his tools YES,but we should know we are only passing through.
And inspite of his Medical healings...

---John on 3/30/11

John, I also disagree with what you say. First of all you said,

"Ignorance of Satan is NOT Bliss!!!"

I agree with you there, but it is you who is not learned as to who Satan is. He is not Omnipresent making sure all inventions or corrupt. Bringing sickness to everyone. Making people kill each other around the world. Also he is not Omnipotent as God is. His power only goes as far as God permits it to go. People die because of sin. Humans are sinners. Satan is not winning any wars against Almighty God. God is on the Throne. People die at an appointed time. Humans who are sinners cause most of what goes wrong in the world. They are responsible because of sin.

Bob: "Steven, are you really saying that today's Christians can do greater miracles then Jesus?"

Do you believe everything Jesus said? Well then, he said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto my Father."

Scripture also says that all things are possible with the help of the Father - depending, of course, the strength of our faith.Wasn't Elijah translated from one place to another? Didn't Jesus appear in the middle of the people in the upper room?

Today's christians have knowledge of God, but deny his power.

---Paul on 3/29/11

While the internet is definitely a neutral medium, it is almost 'fatally enslaved' by the powers of wickedness. We are governed by rotten politics often but we can't always escape it. In some cases we patiently wait for God's redemption. The Bible does not give a list of 'good/bad' gadgets but recognizes our ability to discern to a great extent good from bad. That was one thing good about Eve's choice.
---hop on 3/29/11

Steven, are you really saying that today's Christians can do greater miracles then Jesus? Can salvation come from Christians? Is that not the greatest miracle that Jesus can do that others cannot? Have you seen Christians restored limps? Can Christians walk through walls? Can Christians come and go from heaven back to earth? What says thou?

Donna66: "No. There are the works Jesus would do if He was here on earth."

Jesus doesn't have to be here today. Today's christians are able to perform miracles greater than Jesus, but people believe in the miracles of science and technology and medical advances than believe in the miracles of God. People today depend on the miracles of man than the miracles of God. Although science and technology has its place as tools, satan surely has used these tools to weaken the faith in God.
---Steveng on 3/28/11

Growing in knowledge and technology is in the Bible, just as cleanliness and washing is in the Bible but no mention of toothpaste. Common sense tells us what is good and what is not good. Technology and machines like computers can be used for good or for evil. The Bible and wisdom tells us that all things should be used for good. People are reading your blog, because that is why you posted it. As for birth control, fornication and promiscuity is evil, and therefore birth control used only for the sole purpose of having sexual relations people without the proper commitment for marriage is not good.
---Eloy on 3/23/11


WOW. I don't see how anyone living in the 21st century can say this!

Did SATAN want polio and childhood diseases all but eradicated?
Did SATAN want to cure people with antibiotics?
Did SATAN want "blue babies" to survive?
Did SATAN want man to develop "artificial" hips and knees so people who would be otherwise crippled could walk.
Does SATAN want prosthetics to be made to replace amputated or malformed limbs?
Did SATAN want cararacts surgically removed so that people could see.?

The internet and the list of other objects including the ones not found in the bible are only tools used by man - both for good and for bad depending on how it's used. It took the accumulation of knowledge of the world to create the things we have today. One verse that comes to mind concerning the end times is that knowledge will have increased a thousandfold. And it surely has! Of all the scholars and scientists from all of history, 97% were born within the last 100 years. The computer and the internet can surely be used to spread the gospel, but it has also spread lies, rumors and false teachings more quickly overtaking truth.
---Steveng on 3/22/11


On the contrary, science and technology is useful to many including weak christians. It's unfortunate that christians use it to replace the miracles God has given us. Christians put more of their faith on the miracles of science and technology than on the miracles of God.

Science and technology has also gotten to a point where they are playing God (cloning, medicines for whatever ails you, for example). It's a shame that most of the science and technology is used for evil purposes.

Could you cite where that passage is? I can't seem to find it.

If you're referring to the story of Onan, what he did was evil - NOT because he "spilled his seed upon the ground" (something never mentioned anywhere else in scripture), but because he had willingly assumed the responsibility of fathering a child for his dead brother - but instead of honoring that responsibility, he treated it with contempt (breaking that covenant).
---StrongAxe on 12/8/07

Could it be that the reason the Internet wasn't mentioned in the Bible is because IT WASN'T INVENTED YET?

And, no, something isn't necessarily wrong because it wasn't mentioned in the Bible. Heck, lots of things that ARE mentioned in the Bible are extremely wrong. The Old Testament would be rated NC-17 if it were filmed in its entirety.

As for not spilling one's seed, that was meant for Onan, for refusing to marry his brother's widow. People have extended it beyond its original meaning.

Catherine, good point, however I don't agree with birth control because I feel like we are playing God. So who's right? We are both equally convicted, and could both find scriptures to back up our view. This is where the question comes in I think. I do believe that the Bible can help in every situation, but disagreement is bound to happen when it's not crystal clear. Perhaps the original blogger just wants to make us stop and think about it.

Heavens no everything is not mentioned in the Bible. I do believe everything is covered in the Bible. You have to hunt. I do not believe that it is God's will to bring babies into the world that you cannot take care of or that you really do not want.
