The world we have today is full of distractions. Everyone is always busy with something – some are busy with work, others are busy with their families, and a few are obsessed with the internet. We are all so preoccupied with something to the extent that we lose sight of more important things. We tend to neglect our physical health, interpersonal relationships, and spiritual growth. Churches are beginning to feel alarmed by all these changes and the complete ignorance of things that actually matter is becoming contagious – thus, the birth of religious websites.
People need to be reminded of what’s really important – consistently. That’s because we forget all too often. It’s one of the biggest ironies of life – neglecting the precious and important. How can we even forget things that matter most? Aren’t important things difficult to forget? You’d be surprised at how complex the human mind is. One moment it shows undying devotion, the next moment it forgets all about it.
Religious websites have volunteered to take the church into the online realm where most distractions are rooted from. And no, they are not here to sermon. Instead, their purpose is to:
Serve As Reminders
All too often we hear of many individuals fall into depression or become socially anxious because of cyber bullying, body shaming, or other critical online influences that bring negative impact to users perceptions. We are all made to believe that we need to conform to standards in order to get the respect and love we deserve. When in fact, we do not have to prove ourselves to others, the only One who has the right to judge us is Our Creator – and he doesn’t even do it. The presence of churches in the online world and the foundation of religious websites are there to serve as reminders – that we are loved unconditionally. And no cyber-bully or internet denizen can tell us otherwise.

Churches are also creating communities wherein youths and adults alike can meet and establish friendly connections. Many people are now more open about their problems but the lack of support they receive from other people leads them astray the path of healing. Instead, they start feeling worse about themselves. Religious websites are never about telling you how your beliefs are wrong or how your actions will disallow you to enter heaven – religious websites serve as a way for churches to connect with their people and give them a home to return to, to supply the support they need.
Just because it’s a religious website doesn’t mean it’s always going to be dull and boring. Because churches have large communities, the internet serves as a platform for members to meet conveniently – anytime, anywhere. Websites act as interaction boards where they can post updates and announcements as well as open discussions and forums for all members to take part in. Other churches even conduct live masses, so that their message can get across people no matter how busy, or far they are. They organize events, have fun parties, and conduct board meetings like what normal communities often do.
Spread the Good News
Okay. Earlier I said that religious websites are not here to sermon but they are here to spread messages of love, friendship, and family. And they don’t really care how many ears will listen. So if we view it from this standpoint, it’s not really giving a sermon but more of extending good advice. We read life quotes all the time. It’s something similar to that. And you’re guaranteed to benefit from it.
If you think that religious websites joined the online world just to go after every bad deed out there, I think you’re truly mistaken. They’re super nice people but they’re not superhuman. They cannot vanquish every bit of evil in this world even if they tried. It’s because change comes from people. No amount of sermon, reprimand, or scolding can change an individual at the core.
So instead, religious websites serve as an open door, patiently waiting for people who are ready to change. It also serves as a shelter for those who suffer in silence. The church is a home for everyone – it was, it is, and it forever will be.
