If you are a regular reader of this blog, you must know by now that I was using Reftagger to automatically tag and quote scripture references in my blog posts. Two weeks ago I came across NETBibleTagger and I replaced Reftagger straight away because I noticed that NETBibleTagger does a much better job.

Leverage Social Media and Information Technology for the edification of the Church.
Once a Pastor told me it would be a great idea to reserve a page in my blog to share the Good news about Jesus. I liked the idea. Then I thought the world wide web is a place for creative and dynamic content. Presenting the Gospel in the traditional and static format would make my visitors feel boring.
1. What is X3Watch?
It’s one of the few Internet Porn Accountability Software in the Market. Imagine I am struggling with Porn. With X3Watch I can have an accountability partner (or partners) who are sent copies of the web pages I look at. The idea is that if I know the accountability partner will be keeping track of my Internet usage, I am less likely to visit sites that he will not approve.
This is how I found out about ChurchInfo. Recently we decided that our church membership information must be computerized and as usual I was asked to do the job. However, none of the commercial Church Management Software I came across could fit into our budget. Then I googled to see whether any free and open-source applications are available.
If you have followed this blog closely you may remember my how-to article on setting up a Church blog with WordPress. You can read it here if you missed it. In it, I also discussed choosing a Web Host in brief. Although Hosting costs have decreased very much over time some churches will find it difficult to invest in web hosting. (especially if you are talking about a fresh church plant) Gladly while doing research for this post I came across two companies that offer to host church websites for free, (well, I found more but the ones mentioned here were worth an introduction)
I was introduced to blogging through a tech column it sounded like a useless idea, which I quickly and impatiently dismissed thinking ‘who wants to maintain an online journal?’ For me, the concept was far less than practical.
3 years later I felt God’s calling in my life. I Left home to enroll in Bible college and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Theology in the year 2006. I was very passionate about sharing God’s word with the masses and had a lot to share. But the entire year went by without a single opportunity to preach.
According to the content of this blog, I have to quote Bible references in almost every blog post that I write. In the beginning, this wasn’t a big deal, but as time passed I wanted to automate the process. You know, typing entire Bible passages manually isn’t easy. Copying and pasting is a good alternative but then it occupies too much of space.
