Christian groups in the US are hoping to turn Satan’s technology against him.
For years, fundamentalist right wing Christians have been complaining that technology will be the way that you can force the global economy to adopt the Number of the Beast method of finance.
Now it seems that one group has decided if you can’t burn them at the stake or press them to death with rocks, you might as well join them.
The Digital Bible Society is currently working to produce micro SDs, thumb drives, CDs and DVDs that contain Bible translations and other Christian resources in several different languages.
According to the Christian Post, which we get for the Spot the Sin and the Identify the Satanic message in the Justin Beber song competition, the idea is to help distribute the Christian message in places where it is dangerous to smuggle in Bibles across the borders.
The big idea is that they can use technology and create portable, easy-to-carry devices which carry “shelves” of Christian resources.
Software designer Ken Allen, is putting six different Bible translations, 600 hours of video resources and 800 hours of audio on the tiny chip that can be used on desktops, laptops and tablets.
Allen wants to get the Bible to “go viral” in closed regions where the Christian church is closed off or persecuted. We can’t see why this would not work. After all the Bible is packed full of sex, violence and calls to persecute women. It should go down a treat in some of the more backward parts of the world, such as Dallas.
The whole principle is based on the premise that the message of the Gospel of Christ is not readily available in some parts of the world and there is a serious Bible shortage. In fact it is not so much the Bible that is a problem with autocratic governments, but the right-wing pro-American study material that goes with it.
The chip is described as a portable Christian book store and some of them are full of very strange books about how rock music, and the wrong sort of television can lead to devil worship. There is often also an anti-socialist, pro-American slant which could upset the authorities.
Although the information contained in the device was launched using a browser, when the library’s storage device was removed, it left no trace on the equipment it used, providing more security to those in persecuted and closed areas, such as Tunbridge Wells.
