Governments around the world are growing increasingly afraid of your access to information on the internet and they are desperately looking for ways to stop that access. According to an explosive new report, governments have repeatedly shut down the internet at least 850 times in the last 10 years to cut off the voice of their citizens.
In the last 20 years, the internet has grown to be the most powerful communication tool in the world. The internet is used for the instant worldwide distribution of news, information, messages, voice calls, conference calls, etc. This has never happened before in the history of mankind and it is a growing problem for tyrannical governments around the world.
Marianne Díaz Hernández, a lawyer in Venezuela and a fellow with the nonprofit Access Now, said in recent interview regarding more people accessing information on the internet, “As governments see this as a threat, they start thinking the internet is something they need to control.”
Only five years ago, when people thought about lack of access to the internet, they thought of nations like China, North Korea, and Iran, but that is simply not the case any longer. More and more nations are shutting down access to the internet. Ultimately, any restricted access to information and communication is a subject that all Christians should be concerned with – preaching the Gospel is built on the idea of communicating and sharing.
The internet has greatly multiplied the ability of Christians to share the message of Jesus Christ through teachings, testimonies, evangelism, and publications.
This is why BTJ created the Gospel Cloud unit. BTJ’s Gospel Cloud unit is a small hand-held, battery powered tool that allows information to be accessed from a preloaded database by anyone standing within 100 meters using WiFi on their communication device.
In a nation like Iran, where internet access can sometimes be shut down, BTJ can launch the Gospel Cloud unit to allow those inside the country to have access to Gospel materials for download onto their own personal communication devices.
