The nerd rapture: Are we in a religious revolution?


One rule about religion is that things change when communication changes. The first Christians spoke and wrote on scrolls. Things changed with bound books, and then printing presses, which produced the Protestant Reformation. Radio, and television, and now the Internet have radically changed human communication, and we can expect big changes in the way people find God.

Some people call this the nerd rapture. We are connected by the Web, and this year we are isolated by a virus pandemic.

Expect changes.

In the time of scrolls and preachers, Jesus told His followers to communicate:

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” (Mark 16: 15 and 16)

That is easier to do that now, than any time in history.

The speaker on the TEDx video predicts a religious revolution based on communication. He mixes in his own advice, but he is correct with his basic prediction.
