In The Beginning Was The Word.

God woke one morning and after stretching, then breathing in the pure unadulterated heavenly air, finally accepted the inevitable. Ruefully he announced to the assembled Angels that the obvious had come to him overnight, whilst asleep.

“My word is not reaching enough souls, and although The Bible is read, it is not adhered to, nor followed by as many as I had hoped. We have, as you know, many and varied outlets, but they are not sufficient nor effective enough.

The way things are at the moment I might as well be on Face Book, or Twitter, for the amount of notice that is taken of me!”

Although I am being sarcastic in this post, it does have a message. The vast majority of people in this world actively participate on social forums rather than follow the teachings of Christ, and I’m not excluding myself from their number.

It appears strange to me that we have more faith in the power of internet mediums that we do in Biblical ones.

Could this be true?

As freedom is relative, and happiness simply an illusion. Is total exploitation the answer, and the final solution?

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
