ChurchMag had a great post a while back called “Can Christians Influence the Internet Culture.”

The answer is: Yes. Absolutely.

I appreciated how the post pointed out how few people there are actually creating content on the Internet, while there are many lurkers.

The post showed how realistic it can be to be able to make a difference. I remember reading not too long ago about Christian leaders are very popular and influential on Twitter.

I think are calling as God’s people is to influence the world, not through our own means or strategic ends, but rather through God’s means and what He wants us to do. Our influence is directly tied to our faith and our commitment to Christ. The more we believe, the greater we grow in maturity in Christ, that’s when we become influential. On our own power… we aren’t influencing for God, but more for ourselves.
