Good Intentions

That’s what a lot of Christians and congregations have, good intentions.  

The hyperconnectivity of our culture enables Christians and congregations to extend their influence far more easily than ever before.  It is possible to meet someone at a conference, discover that they live on the other side of the world, and be in regular, daily contact with this person via e-mail, Skype, and other options.  It is easy to form a bond based on emotional impressions and run with it.
None of this is bad.  
But all of this is risky, as this brief essay depicts.
Accountability is important but difficult to ensure.  Good intentions are laudable but also exploitable.
