Is Counselor Troi a Member?

At first, I thought this was some parody article:

Hologram Preachers Slated to Appear at Churches

I reckon it's the real deal, though it has a sniff of "hoax" news article on it.

Once we get that holodeck technology invented, churches will be totally irrelevant.

I'm of two minds here Fred. I can see technologies such as this being put to good use by such people as James White to reduce travel costs to the ministry. In fact it might be easier to have multiple venues for the debates with both parties being present at different locals yet being together.

At the same time this would increase the mindset of some who would say why go to church when I can have church right here in the home with my virtual pastor.

We are doing this to some degree here at Grace. The church spent a good bit of money to put together a studio that can allow John (or any speaker for that matter), interact with an audience virtually anywhere in the world. For instance, in Russia and India. In fact, James White did use our system about a year ago when he was invited to address a pastor's conference in Pune, India.

However, I am more of the mind set of the technology being used to encourage lazy, isolationist type folks who want church, but not a pastor genuinely involved with his or her life telling him or her how to live.
