These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete. 1John1:4
“No reasonable expectation of privacy”
This is what one “Big” Silicon Valley Tech company recently quipped, defending their right to scan private emails that use their services. Government agencies have admitted to their ability to crack encryption codes and “intrude upon communications”.
As we enter further into the brave new computer-enhanced world, there is no longer any “reasonable expectation of privacy protections”.
Your mail, email, phone calls, private blogs, files, photos, records, etc. …… all are now potentially open and technically available for electronic or live perusing by IT geeks and government powers that be.
Shall we then stop speaking? Shall we then quiet our witness? How about encouraging the other saints?
We can choose now to be intimidated; to put a lid on it and quiet down……. or we can choose now, to continue on as usual with both our public and our private spoken and written communications….paying no mind to whoever may be listening or reading……….. (as if nothing were different)……… with trust and joy. Let us choose to continue in our witness and choose to continue on encouraging one another.
