Christian social action and technology.


This depends on the past and the future depends on it.
The XXI century is characterized by the dam, which in the past lasted thousands of years to occur, this has happened a couple of years and the future still seems to run faster.
The Christian Social Action of the future must be done today should have happened yesterday.
Christianity has lost much time, apparently asleep, face the challenges and opportunities of the modern world. Man is essentially a social being, but has become a cold machine, cynical, manipulative. On the contrary, we see a wave of mysticism and spirituality, as evidence of the need to feel more love, faith and hope.
The basis of all Christian action must be love.
At all times, places and situations that love should be present as a characteristic of Christians (Jo13. 35). The world has always needed, and I have no need of love expressed in practical actions and deep (Rm12.9 -18).
The Christian Church must be attentive to opportunities to show your love in practical action through a personal contact with the needy, not only material goods, but friendly, a goal in life, lack of attention, the opportunity to be someone important (Mt 18.2).
In the XXI century the Christian world is divided between strong and weak, rich and poor, and non-Christians, sick and well ..... It is necessary   a return to primitive Christianity, where small communities are separated, knew the needs of each, if sensitized, showed Christian compassion and unite to serve (Acts 2.44 to 47).
Today we take into account not only the use of technology and functionality, but use it in terms of social interests. Because there may be just what causes economic growth, bringing wealth to a small group , but its use light to maximize the benefits of the entire population.
Thus, using the same ideas, we pray for the future of Christian social action is the use of modern technologies to offer the love of Christ to the lost world as quickly as possible, without neglecting the personal contact that the person values, giving dignity, responsibility and freedom.
