Reflecting on the role of the internet and its implications in our lives
On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther posted on the door of the Church of Winttenberg his 95 theses against the Church of Rome .The holy monk Luther did it because the doors of the churches were places where everyone went to take notice of what was happening. Ali preached event invitations , announcements or clerical government , challenges to duels and debates , etc. . That is, Luther knew and wanted everything he had written became common knowledge , so that might influence your ideas or arouse the interest and will of those who read them .Today the Internet is the equivalent to the doors of the churches of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries . Here we publish our thoughts , invitations to events , venting , raise issues for debate and a multitude of things . However , what is our purpose?Luther had a purpose with the publication of his 95 Theses , and so the preached there. He was very conscious of their actions and possible consequences .And we are aware of the impact of our publications and its consequences ?I have thought about it very seriously , because I have many nasty things to say and when to publish , make conscious of their weight and be ready to bear the consequences of what I published . For those willing to publish (this word means "to make public" ) must have to be willing to answer so published .If you think you will not be able to bear the consequences of their publications , then do not. Remember : we are masters of our thoughts , but slaves of our words , whether written or spoken .Soli Deo Gloria .
