"Preparing for Foundation Day"
Schmitten, Germany, 19. - 24. August 2012)
Divine principle says that in the Last Days through technology God will make the world as One Big Family centered on God. As Divine Principle explains: "The distance between East and West is extremely shortened owing to the rapid progress in transportation and communications", so through Internet "the ideology of the Messiah can freely and swiftly flow into the hearts of all mankind." (DP p.424)
"To build the Kingdom of God I need to use the Internet technology."
True Father, 1998
Do you know, that people believe more when they read something, rather than when they hear from someone. In Jin Nim said, that young people don't want to be lectured, but like to go on Internet and find out for themselves. In fact, whatever they hear or want to know, they will automatically go to Google and find out everything about it. That's why I was working hard in Bulgarian, to fill up Internet with our information and viewpoint on everything and it was effective.
Research shows that fast information and communications provided by Internet, transform knowledge, education, the way of thinking, and the way we view things. "This is perfectly provided by God" says DP, and is "the best foundation on which to make the truth and ideology of the Messiah worldwide within the shortest possible time by rapidly spreading it, when the Lord comes." (DP p.424)
The power of internet is that it makes possible to bring that education directly to the homes. Five to ten thousand people read my articles about TF every day from hundreds of Bulgarian towns and villages, that never been visited by members.In a country with 13 blessed families that's incredible. See my video testimony in 'IMAGINE what Internet could do in few years! REEDUCATE THE WORLD'
Internet does bring people together substantially
See the facts; people not only create good friendships, but 1 out of 8 couples married in the U.S. last year met online.. Internet is truly a Groundbreaking method to witness to many people. Read the stories of my spiritual children that joined online.As True Father explained, now educating and informing the society is easy and fast because of Internet. In his words, we should use it to create K.O.H. and even mobilize the spiritual world to cooperate.
Internet can mobilize masses of people
In Bulgaria Internet Bloggers could mobilize masses of people to come on the streets to protest against the communist government, one year ago. People even find on internet if some driver has free space and heads their direction, so they share transport to work.
Look how powerful was Internet to mobilize demonstrations in some countries. It can mobilize masses of people. Obama used effectively Internet and bloggers for his elections.
Internet can bring members, supporters, participants
Organizations effectively mobilize people for events, businesses sell heir products, clubs find members, all through Internet. We are blind if we don't recognize the power of Internet. We are irresponsible if we don't start using it for God. 2013 is just about the corner. Let's wake up!
I see three obvious points:
1. Misinformation is the only information people are being given about us. And bad forces made more effort to spread it, while we stayed low.
2. Members published mostly for members, so our materials are difficult for outside people is impossible to understand and learn.
3. My experience is that in fact very few young people are negative. They simply don't know us. People with good original nature are prepared and waiting for it.
What is most important:
My effort is not simply teach students how to technically make a nice blog, but how to effectively witness through a website. Why hundreds and thousands of non-members are so inspired to spread my articles themselves? Because I know how to make it effective. Why they don't mind that my articles proclaim TF as the Messiah? Because I know how to present it so they can understand our vision and feel TF's heart. When students start writing and choosing materials I teach them point by point what's the right, effective way of doing it. Read more in my Blog
