As you may know from searching through my website, I was really fond of Billy Graham. As such, I’m also a big fan of his son, Franklin.
Franklin has a Facebook post that I find perfectly timed, especially given all the hoopla (and rightly so) about Google keeping track of as much of our lives as possible. Use Gmail? Every email and attachment is read by Google computers.
Youtube? Your viewing habits are all noted by the big G.
Have a Chrome browser on your desktop? Everything you do on the Internet is being seen by Google.
Same thing when you use the Pixel Phone, Google Home, and Google Play.
You’re every move is being tracked and monitored.
Why? To sell you stuff and, ultimately, to modify your behavior, shape your ideas, and establish/re-establish your morals.
Google is huge. If they ever come out with a product called “666,” run for cover.
But that said, Google’s dynamism pales in comparison to the Almighty hand of God.
Here’s Franklin’s post:
Yes, your cell phone knows where you are! And tracking where you go and what you do is big business for some companies because they use and sell that information. Google’s CEO was recently grilled by Congress about how they treat this information and our privacy. This Fox News report is about the amazing amount of metadata your phone is constantly capturing about your activities. Do you mind being tracked by Google?
But remember, Google isn’t the only one watching you. God is. And He doesn’t need an app to keep up with exactly where you are. He’s God—He knows where you are 24/7. And He knows what you’re doing. He even knows your thoughts and the intentions of your heart. The Bible tells us, “O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up, You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways” (Psalm 139:1-3).
