Please Tell Me This Isn't True

From Evangelism UK

Gospel sent by blue-tooth?
A device that can send Bible text and Gospel messages to anyone within 100 yards, won an award at the Christian Resources Exhibition recently. The Gabriel Communicator, said the Church Times on Friday, can 'send evangelistic text messages to unsuspecting passers-by'. Good source of information is the original CRE notification:

No, no, no, NO, NO!!!! This is the worst idea in Christendom. Has anyone thought how the 'unsuspecting passers by' are going to feel about getting 'evangelistic text messages'? Are they going to get down on their knees in the street, or just decide that Christians are annoying interfering prats who bombard you with stuff you've not asked for. This is a rubbish invention, and if you use one anywhere near me then I will personally baptise it for you.

What would Jesus do? Not this.


  1. You're definitely right there, David!

  2. Thanks for your visit to my blog and for your comment.

    Call again anytime.

    Blessings on your ministry.

  3. I agree this is a crazy idea and could reinforce prejudice. Better to try and build a relationship with a person. It is so easy to broadcast some text message and does not cost anything but to stop and make relationship with someone can be costly, takes time and may involve rejection!
