EP217: Chris Caputo, Internet Addictions & Digital Ministry


How are We Supposed to Stay Healthy When We're Literally Ministering in Addictive Spaces?

Internet Addiction is actually a thing. So wait, we're trying to do ministry, we're trying to be the church, in digital- and metaverse- spaces... and evidently these areas are addictive. How do we do ministry in areas that can damage ourselves? How do we minister to those that are damaged? The more complex these technologies become, the more we need to respect and understand the scope of the battlefield. What does the Armor of God look like in digital & metaverse spaces.

This is the conversation we're having today. Can damage happen to us in digital and metaverse spaces? Of course! Could damage happen to the bible runners that smuggled the gospel behind the iron curtain, or even biblically when the disciples stood up against Rome? Carrying our cross can look different in the metaverse, but how do we prepare ourselves for the battle?

What Does the Armor of God Look Like for Digital- and Metaverse- Churches?

These are just some of the questions Jeff and Chris Caputo start digging into. There are challenges in digital and metaverse spaces. This doesn't mean we give up! This means we work through and discover how to prepare, which is what we're starting right here in this podcast. So jump on this conversation where Jeff & Chris start digging into how to combat Internet Addictions while doing digital ministry!
