Merry Christmas from all of us!!!

Technology is ever improving. What you buy today, is obsolete tomorrow. How do you stay ahead of the curve?

Some of what you buy will be vastly improved upon if you wait a little bit. When do you wait and when do you pull the trigger?

In the music world, things have changed dramatically! One can now download the application of every instrument to your phone! Not only this, but if you know what you are doing, you can play in concert with others who have done likewise.

Some would understandably argue that there is no substitute for the real thing. While that may be true, even a trained ear will struggle to discern the difference.

I was called across the hall a few minutes ago to view the proof!

Upon arrival, I watched an iBand play a Christmas Concert on stage at a church! Not a single "musician" had anything but an iPhone or iPad! The collective sound was just like they were playing the real instruments!

I watched as an iPad laden with Bells, chimed "Carol of the Bells."

I watched as "Feliz Navidad" was sung through a phone.

The drums were on one, the guitars on another, and even an accordion on another. There had to be 10 guys on stage, each playing... an "i" something.

Where does the substitute for the real thing end?

Whatever your interest, you can do it virtually, now.

Clearly, there will never be a substitute for real Truth. There are many pretenders out there trying to pass themselves off as a way to God. None but Jesus will ever be the real thing.

Though you can now read your Bible on your phone or other electronic device, or listen to it via your phone or cd, you cannot "virtually" have a relationship with Christ. There is no substitute!

There is no substitute for the humility of being born in a stable, among the straw and dung. There is no substitute for being conspired against, though innocent, laid open through beating, and marched up a hill to be nailed to a tree. You cannot virtually rise from the dead to Save the world.

To be in relationship with the "Reason for the Season," is what our lives are all about. Virtual aspects may be incorporated, but cannot substitute for really knowing Him intimately.

Seek Him with all that you are!

If you wanna view what I did, go to:

Merry Christmas!!!
