Jesus 2.0

pict0006.jpgGotta love this. GodTube.com is a social networking and video-sharing site for Christians who want to connect, pray and harness technology as a force of worship. Talk about Christianity 24/7. As the site says, GodTube is about: Representing Baptist, Catholic, Episcopal, Evangelical, Messianic, Methodist and all of the traditional Christian denominations, GodTube is unique in its appeal and in its mission to “Broadcast Him”.

There’s a bunch of people behind GodTube who view videos before posting to the site. Apparently, 14 seminary students act as a board checking into people’s backgrounds, aiming to exclude sexual or violent criminals, before giving someone a profile. Not sure whether this means if a sexual pervert or crim has “found the Lord’ they are not allowed on the site. Not to mention I’d be worried about the privacy aspects of checking into people’s lives.

I didn’t spend a lot of time on the site, but I noted some maybe disturbing aspects. There’s a fairly liberal use of scare tactics if you ask me. Check out this video on the Rapture.  Then there’s a bit of an attack on Islam.
