Looking at my tech is the hardest part of my journey so far into Christian minimalism. I had to look at my gadgets because I know as I try to lead my family away from stuff I have to show that I am all in. One of those things is limiting my technology. I am a techie in Christ! cmon man!
I first got rid of the gadgets in the garage that I tinkered with , like a LCD projector, HDMI cords, adapters. I had to get rid of my baby, the one I birthed from the picture in my banner, my gaming pc! I didn't need a PC that I played by myself or against people hundreds or thousands of miles away.
Bye bye PS4
If I play a game most of the time I want to do it with my family. That's why I haven't been playing my PS4. I originally got it for so called "grown up games" which really mean games "too sinful for your eyes to see kids" haha. So I knocked out two birds with one stone. Well I am selling it now. I just spent 375 on it in February before GOD began working on me and I am trying to recoup my losses. I know I want to get to the point I give up stuff and not think about the losses but my wife don't want me throwing away money. So until a buyer comes, it collects dust! At least its not building dust on my relationship with those around me and my prayer life!
Whats the next tech purge?
I began July with canceling Comcast. I used to use it exclusively for internet so that I can use my Apple Airport Extreme router. I had a jungle of cords set up! Now I sacrificed a little speed, gave up the extra features, and simplified the cords to keep things a little tidier and easier to maintain. I now have one bill for everything keeping it simple. I can always come back when I am considered a new customer for a cheaper price.
I am down to using one computer. We have an extra laptop as a family , so I am trying to get rid of one of the older slower 2 in 1s. I gave away most of the cords in such and sold some things, I still have old flip phones I need to trash and condense down some old floppy drives. I am debating and praying over the movement to a cheap phone. I am selling my 6 plus honestly to prepare for the iphone 7. Some are rolling their eyes but that is progress for me, a person who upgraded legit probably every 6 months to something. I really enjoy my iphone, rather its taking screenshots, saving passwords, letitng it talk with other devices or Apple Pay! The greatest thing that I love when using my Iphone is Apple Pay. I use apple pay all the time much more often than I swipe my card, rather its gas , groceries , subway, etc.. Its convenient clean and , dare I say it , minimal?,,,,,, haha talked my way out of that one!
This blog should be a safe place for anyone who wants to talk, read, listen, and experience technology in safe GOD fearing way. I am a believer and follower of JESUS CHRIST MY LORD AND SAVIOR WHO I BELIEVE CAME DOWN AS GOD IN THE FLESH TO SHED BLOOD SO WE MAY BE MADE RIGHT WITH GOD AND HE WILL ACT AS WITNESS ON OUR BEHALF BECAUSE NO MAN CAN GET TO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST and it is those who believe mission to spread this message of love to all people for GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD! I strive to live righteously and I pray you do to and understand that we should do that in all that we do even when we are enjoying my favorite hobby, all things tech! that's why I am a techie in CHRIST I am a tech nerd that is grounded in the LORD. GOD BLESS !
