So, the BIG QUESTION is: even if it is lawful for Christians to participate in this all-too human network, is God really present there as well? The answer is that God is present in the midst of this virtual world just as he is present in the real world that He upholds and sustains. He is present in His Word – the Word written, the Word proclaimed, the Word incarnate. God’s Word is an open source of all things valuable and noble. As one theologian notes, ‘At whatever time God’s Word is taught, preached, heard, read or pondered, there the person, the day and the work are sanctified by it, not on account of the external work but on account of the Word which makes us all saints’.
