Adventist Apps revolution
The growth in the smartness of mobile phones and tablets has revolutionised the way we communicate with each other and share information. And with the Seventh-day Adventist Church always at the forefront in utilising technology in the propagation of the gospel, adventists are getting a significant share in the info-technological revolution.
Having used a number of adventist apps that simplify or enhance certain specific tasks and interests using devices like iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, HTC, I feel much enthusiastic to share with our dear GhanaAdventist fans and visitors.
I therefore begin here, a series of articles to highlight some adventist apps I have personally come across and which I am using to enhance life the christian way.
[info_box_1 title=”Adventism and Technology”]
As an Adventist and for that matter a Christian, I strongly believe in tradition; reading the Bible, praying regularly, studying the Sabbath School lessons, etc.
However there are a number of challenges that interfere in our ability to fulfil these religious obligations in order to safeguard and enhance our spiritual well-being. The fast pace of the modern life -especially in this western life-, and the bulkiness of the Bible and other relevant books are some of the main examples of the challenges.
Over the last decade, technology, especially the Internet and mobile devices have brought about a communication revolution. People are empowered with the ability to share, contribute, create, broadcast and communicate with each other and the world at large. It’s now easy to express who we are and what we believe with the rest of the world.
With this development also comes the ability to communicate with our Creator with ease such as receiving or watching presentations of the word of God, reading the Bible or following a study guide, requesting for prayers, sharing testimonies, etc.
I love technology because it simplifies life. Therefore I have keen interest in situations where science and technology is applied to enhance christian life and the propagation of the gospel.
My favourites for some time, have been
- when the Adventist Church held that massive campaign in Kumasi, Ghana some years back which was watched live around the world, including thousands of villages, thanks to satellite transmission.
- the Hope Tv Channel via satellite television and online for great teachings including the Sabbath School lessons.
