The US Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage nationwide on June 26th, 2016 triggered mixed responses from Christian Communities not only across the country but the global church. When I read the various responses on the web the thought that crossed my mind was, “What will I do if this happened in my country, Sri Lanka?” I prayed about and the Holy Spirit implanted five thoughts in my heart. I want to share those thoughts with you today. (Scripture quotations are taken from the Amplified® Bible (AMP), Copyright © 2015 by The Lockman Foundation. Used by permission. www.lockman.org)
There are two things in this world that young people are most attracted to. Sex and technology. Both are good but dangerous if handled unwisely. Aaron Swartz was fascinated by the latter. Unfortunately, his fascination didn’t have limits.
Now please take note that I don’t intend to judge Aaron in writing this article. I rather want to emphasize the fact that there are many brilliant-minded people like Swartz who need to be taught to use their skills wisely, which is something only the Church is capable of doing. A good point to start with would be to identify and create an awareness of the 3 major mistakes Swartz made.
