親愛的基督復臨安息日會職工及教友們:
       
耶穌再來是我們一切的盼望.  為了促使他更快地回來, 我們的教會及教友們已經建立了上千個網站來傳揚福音.  由於有太多的網站, 各自為政, 按自己的方法去做, 不免有些
問題存在.  在此我們願意提出一些建議及提供一些問題的解決方法. 

現有網站的缺點:

  1. 很多教會的網站與商業性的網站有合約關係.  他們通常都不是基督徒.  商業形式的網站通常都非常注重包裝, 配上很 "" 的音樂, 有閃耀的圖標 (與崇敬真神不很相配), 有隱藏的按鈕, 等等.  在這些網站瀏覽如入迷宮, 很易迷失.  很多我們的網站,只有很少的傳福音價值.    

  2. 有些網站只是告示牌而已.

  3. 有些教會的網站附屬於商業的網站, 這些商業網站可能是推廣一些東西, 與我們的信仰和教規相違背.  (我曾探訪過很多我們教會的網站, 其中有些突然出現一個小窗, 提供你射擊猴子的遊戲, 可讓你贏取二十元的獎金. 另一個則引導你網上玩紙牌.).

  4. 很多網站的名稱非常難記.

  5. 有太多重覆網站使分散人數, 就如一個大家庭被分成數群的人一樣. 

我們的建議:

  1. 建立一個命名的系統. 例如:
    http://your language.adventist.org/
    http://education.yourlanguage.adventist.org/

  2. 可以用中文,韓文,日文,英文,法文,等代入. 例如我們的
    中文網站是 http://chinese.adventist.org/ 
    韓文網站是 http://korean.adventist.org/ 

    用這命名系統的好處是當你為其中之一網站作宣傳,同時也可為全球我們教會的一切網站作宣傳.  

  3. 網站不應有國界, 因為互聯網是無國界的.  我們應該用語言來作區別, 因為有許多人不能突破語言的藩籬.     

  4. 所有教會中之教友及慕道友,都應該運用上帝所賜的才幹,參與傳福音工作,而無需具備電腦知識.

  5. 每一種語言網站可委任一組志願人員來管理.  這些志願人士可以分散在不同國家,但使用共同語言.  人們可以使用今日的科技通過互聯網來一同工作.

  6. 向教友們提供如何使用電郵來傳福音的訓練.

  7. 向教友們提供如何建立自己語言網站的訓練.

  8. 挑選一些志願人士,向他們提供如何管理伺服器的訓練.

  9. 使用我們自己的伺服器以減輕運作費用.這樣將會有無限的磁碟空間來提供多媒體福音廣播.

  10. 建立互聯網廣播及訓練總部.建議地點設在加拿大多倫多鄰近天虹體育館之雍景豪城.  這些公寓有光纖等高科技設施.

  11. 如何獲得金錢來發展如此龐大的計劃?
    由志願人士來建立網站,所節省的金錢可用來購置設備.
    只需一個域名經己足夠.這樣可以省回數以千計之不必要的註冊費用.
    使用自己的伺服器較租用提供互聯網服務商的磁碟空間節省許多金錢.
    剩餘的磁碟空間及頻道可出租作商業之用.
    剩餘的人力可為別人建立網站以作商業之用.
    可以接受教育,健康及畢業同學會等之廣告.
    在購物網站我們可以推廣健康食品、聖經、書籍、錄音帶等之貨品.

  12. 在各洲設立多個副網站,可以使各處的人易於進入我們的網站及避免阻滯.  若有任何伺服器受損毀或阻滯,不同地區之另一伺服器便會立即補替.

  13. 所有現存的網站都可免費給與一個新名,舊名可以同時使用一段時間直至更改完成及滿意為止.

  14. 將重覆的網站連結起來, 使人們彼此生活得更緊密而不被分隔.

  15. 我們將選用網上最佳的講道,以製作一張50小時的多媒體雷射光碟.這光碟將免費分贈人們.若大量製作,每張光碟之製作費,祇需美金幾角錢而已.

  16. 為那些不使用電腦的人,我們將製作一套74分鐘的普通聲音光碟.

  17. 這些光碟可以復製成不同語言版本,以方便他們聆聽. 

互聯網之好處:

  1. 自從我們的網站開設之後,我們體會到教友們更有興趣聆聽真理,更認真參與事奉,無論在講道音樂、兒童故事等都盡力提高水準,表現得最好,以便更有效地在互聯網上廣傳福音.

  2. 全世界教友之間的關係將逐漸變得密切,更容易聯絡交通,因為在網上再無國界分隔.

  3. 已退休的牧師重新變得活躍.他們會意識到在互聯網上,仍有人會聆聽他們的講道.

  4. 減少宗派間之誤解,讓他們也能聽到我們的講道,明白我們的道理,消除不必要的誤會.

  5. 有人住在遠方,不方便到教會,他們可以在家聆聽我們的講道和佈道會.

  6. 藉著互聯網,我們亦可足不出戶向人傳福音.

  7. 可增加教友人數.

  8. 可增加教會的捐款.

  9. 教友會更加努力合作.

  10. 殘障的人不方便到教會,亦可在家中參與安息日的崇拜. 

願上帝賜福你們各人.

Dear SDA staff & members,
           
Jesus return is all our hope. In order to quicken his return, our church members have already built thousands of Internet sites to spread Gospel. Because of too many sites around, every body is doing on their own way. We would like to give some suggestion and solutions in here. 

Bad points about present sites:

  1. Many church sites are contracted to commercial site builder. They are usually not Christian. Commercial style sites usually are very cosmetics; it has active music, flashing icons (which is not too respecting to God), hidden buttons, etc. Browsers went into these game sites can get lost easily as in a maze. Many of our sites have little Gospel value.

  2. Some sites are just a bulletin board.

  3. Some site are attached to commercials, they could be marketing something, which do not agree with our doctrine. (I have accessed many of our church sites which can pop out a small window to offer you a monkey shooting game to win $20, or an on line poker game)

  4. Many sites have names which are too difficulty to remember.

  5. There are just too many repeated sites. Repeated site can separate people similar to split a family into several group. 

Our proposal:

  1. Create a site naming system. Such as 
    http://your_language.adventist.org/, 
    http://education.your_language.adventist.org/.  The word "your language" will be replaced by the word such as Chinese, Korean, English, French, and so on.  Take for example: Chinese website:     http://chinese.adventist.org/ or Korean website: http://korean.adventist.org/ 
    Advantage of using this naming system is when we advertise for our site, one line will be good for the whole world's site.

  2. Sites should not have country border, because Internet have no border. We should use only language to distinguish our differences, because many people cannot break through the language barrier.

  3. All church members and non-member should use their gifted talent to participate. No knowledge on computer is required.

  4. Each language site will appoint a group of volunteer to manage it. These volunteers could be dispersed in different countries, but speaking a common language. People can work together through Internet with nowadays technology.

  5. Provide training to church members how to utilize Email to spread Gospel.

  6. Provide training to volunteer members to make sites of their own languages.

  7. Provide training to selected volunteers to run web servers.

  8. Run our own server to reduce operating cost. It will have unlimited disk space to accommodate multimedia evangelism broadcast.

  9. Establish an Internet broadcast and training head quarter. Proposed site is on Cityplace, near Skydome, Toronto, Canada. These apartment buildings have state of the art technology facilitate with fiber optics.

  10. How to obtain money for such a big project?
    Volunteers will build the sites. Money saved by not paying professional can be used to purchase hardware.
    Only one domain name is required, money will be saved on eliminating thousands of un-necessary registration.
    Running our own server can cut cost on leasing disk space from ISP.
    Surplus disk space, and bandwidth can be leased to commercial.
    Surplus labor can be used to build website for commercial.
    Commercial advertising is acceptable to education, health, and alumni site.
    We can market health food, bible, books, videotapes, etc in the shopping site.

  11. Multiple mirror sites and server will be run in every continent, to provide easier access and to prevent blockade. Server in different location will replace blocked server instantly.

  12. Provide free name server service to all existing site. All existing sites will have new names, while the old names will still be valid for a very long time until change over complete and satisfactory.

  13. Link repeated sites together, such that people can live closer together rather than being separated.

  14. On selecting the best sermon in the site. We will make a 50-hour multimedia CD. This CD will be distributed  free.  If produce large quantity, the cost of producing such a CD is only US$0.40 each.

  15. For people who do not use computer, we will produce a 74 min audio CD for them.

  16. These CD will be reproduced in different languages.   

Advantages of Internet:

  1.  After our website has been launched. We have already experienced church members are competing for the truth in the bible and quality of performance. They understand performing well on the sermon, music, children story, etc., will be more effective to spread the gospel in the Internet.

  2. Church members feel closer relationship all over the world because there is no longer a country border.

  3. Retired Pastors has become active again, because they realized their sermons will been listened in the Internet.

  4. Reduce misunderstanding between nominations. Other nominations can hear our sermons and understand our doctrine.

  5. People who are inconvenient to the church, they will be able to visit our evangelism at home.

  6. We can spread Gospel through Internet without leaving home.

  7. Increase church membership.

  8. Church offerings increased.

  9. Church members are more co-operating.

  10. Disabled person will no longer miss the Sabbath Worship. 

      May God bless all of you. 

                Yours faithfully
                    Michael Tung
