When I first learning how to use the internet during year late 1998, I was working as an Internet Assistant and the common operating system for that year is Windows95 (planning to upgrade whole sets of computers to Windows98) at least, were now accessing a Leased Line Connection instead of a Dial-Up.
One customer (internet user) approaches me, while I am fixing one of the computer to install Netscape Navigator (I’m not used to Internet Explorer) Browser.
That customer is an -- ------- Christian Religion as he told me when I ask him (and I am a Roman Catholic in faith religion). That customer of mine having no plan to rent our internet but just to talk everything about God, Religion, Bible and everything…. Especially COMPUTER with INTERNET CONNECTION as the greatest and latest works of the Devil, claiming that if were still using it, our soul’s destiny is in Hell.
Since I am using the internet, this simply means that my soul is sure to go to hell?
Have you ever heard some Religious Groups that kept on saying Computers and Internet is the works of the Devil?
So, I also reply him by saying:
“Anyone who uses different types of Pens and Papers are their souls will go to hell too because it is also the Works of the Devil.”
Well, that was way back year 1988
But now, it’s year 2012
And almost all people are possessing Cellular Phones, Smart Phones, Tablets (accessible to internet, compatible to personal computer through USB or Bluetooth)
I think they are not the only type of Christian Religions claiming that Internet and Computers are the works of the devil, there are some different Christian Religions too that thinks the same idea.
For there are plenty of Christian Religions, even their hair (for ladies only) must not to be cut or trim off because it’s a sin; or later suffer the fires of hell for eternal damnation.
