In this continuing culture of do-it-yourself (DIY), it seems that one can find a video about pretty much anything on Youtube. And from there, the sky is the limit for a motivated person.
From knitting to automotive work, painting to kayaking, the videos seem endless, and are uploaded at the rate of 100 hours of video/minute. That’s a lot of video footage!
I wondered, just how many people use Youtube? According to their website, more than 1 billion individual users/month. That’s over 32 million hits/day. Wow! And according to Nielsen statistics for young adults, Youtube is used more than any single cable TV network!
What is it about being on-demand and searchable that we like about the internet? We can read articles, watch old TV shows, be a student, research anything….
It’s a whole do-it-yourself, when you want to (24/7), from where you want to (home/car/restaurant), and how you want to (computer/tablet/phone) world!
But despite all this technology, regardless of the unending amount of knowledge that is available on-line, there is still only one way to Heaven.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV)
It is only because of what God did, and not what we do that we can have eternal life. God sent His Son, Jesus, to do what no man can do.
