1. WELCOME FROM YOUR FRIENDLY EDITOR, BARRY TRAVER
Welcome to another issue of "CATI," a free newsletter devoted
to "Christians And The Internet" ("CATI" is pronounced "Katy,"
but is spelled with a "C" for "Christians" and an "I" for
"Internet").
For those who received the earlier issues, you'll notice that
there's been some renumbering:  the original sample newsletter
is now Vol. 1, No. 1, and what was described before as the
first "regular" issue is now Vol. 1, No. 2, making this issue
Vol. 1, No. 3.
Why the change?  Two reasons.  First, the sample newsletter
did not deserve secondary status.  For example, its article on
"Some Christian Web Sites" was useful enough that the sample
issue is worthy of being considered the first "official" issue
of CATI.  Second, the renumbering is more logical if present
plans for CATI are able to be realized.
What are the present plans?  I hope to publish CATI news on
a weekly basis (D.V., which stands for "Deo Volente," meaning
"God willing" -- see James 4:13-15), ordinarily on Friday or
Saturday.  Individual issues can thus be briefer (easier to
digest) and more timely (since Web sites change).
Future plans include making past issues available on the Web
and perhaps having a Web site (including a bulletin board or
discussion group area) specifically devoted to CATI, but the
priority right now is getting CATI out on a regular basis
with useful and interesting content.
At any rate, 52 issues are planned for the year 2000, from
Vol. 1, No. 1, to Vol. 1, No. 52, if all goes well.  That
will provide an opportunity to cover a wide variety of topics
related to "Christians And The Internet," all communicated in   
bite-size (or should that be byte-size?) pieces.
If you have suggestions as to subjects or items that might be
covered or included in future issues, please pass them along.
CATI is intended for your benefit, and you can be involved by
contributing your thoughts and ideas from time to time as
appropriate.
By the way, when I make use of suggestions or contributions by
subscribers, I do not mention a subscriber by name unless I
have gotten explicit permission in advance to do so.  Even
though I make it a point to know subscribers' real names as
well as their email addresses, such information is regarded as
private and will not be shared or published unless approval is
specifically given (as was done by CATI subscriber Mark Mondl
for the previous issue and CATI subscribers Dave Rastetter and
Bill Slack for this issue, as you'll see in a moment).
                                         --Barry Traver, Editor

2. A LITTLE MORE ON MP3 FILES AND ON EMAIL HOAXES
The previous issue of CATI included an article on "THE MP3
MUSIC REVOLUTION ON THE INTERNET: THE BASICS," but I failed to
mention that MP3 is useful for the spoken word as well.  For
example, you can get the New York Times Audio Digest in MP3
format.  Check this page for the details:
 http://www.mp3.com/audible/
I also got the following interesting email message from CATI
subscriber Dave Rastetter:
"Cati Guy:  Hi, I have been to the 'Renewing Your Mind' on line
at http://www.gospelcom.net/ligonier/ . They have some great
studies in MP3 format. This is what I have done: I bought all
the "Chosen by God" MP3's, 6, 20-30 minutes each. That came to
$6.00; then on the same site I bought the study guide for
$4.00. That comes to $10.00, whereas the audio series and
study guide would have came to $18.00. It's taking less than 15
min. to download each MP3."
The following are available at the R.C. Sproul site in MP3
format:
  Abortion
  Battle for Our Minds
  A Blueprint for Thinking
  Chosen by God
  Christian Worldview
  The Consequences of Ideas
  The Cross of Christ
  Great Men and Women of the Bible
  Hath God Said?
  Heaven
  Hell
  Holiness of God
  The Holy Spirit
  The Majesty of Christ
  The Providence of God
  Themes from Ecclesiastes
Even when MP3 files aren't free, they can save you money!
Here's another thought about MP3 files:  a pastor can record
his sermons, convert them to MP3 format (the MP3 books I
mentioned in the previous issue of CATI give the details),
and make them available to his congregation or to others.
They can be put on a church Web page or on a floppy disk.  
If he or the church has access to a CD-Writer (a computer
gadget costing, say, $300 that allows you to make your own
CD-ROMs), he could put a couple dozen sermons on a single
CD-ROM (and blank CD-ROMs cost $1.00 or less each when bought
in bulk) if the sermons are in MP3 format.  One drawback:
a person needs a computer to play the MP3 files.  (If you
want, however, you could convert the files into WAV format
and use the same equipment to make a regular audio CD, again
costing $1.00 or less, but since an audio CD requires WAV
format, that means you have only 74 minutes to work with and
can put only two or three sermons on a single audio CD.)
The previous issue of CATI also included an article on "'IT
TAKES GUTS TO SAY "JESUS"' AND OTHER EMAIL HOAXES," and CATI
subscriber Bill Slack reminded me that another popular email
hoax is the idea that Procter and Gamble are involved in some
sort of Satanic conspiracy, supporting the Church of Satan.
(They aren't.)  Here are some places you can check out more on
this particular email hoax:
 http://www.datafellows.com/hoaxes/pg-satan.htm
 http://www.pg.com/rumor/ceo.html
So continue to be on your guard against falsehoods that may
appear in your emailbox (and don't pass along warning letters
without being sure of the facts!).

3. MORE CHRISTIAN WEB SITES, THIS TIME WITH COMMENTS
Vol. 1, No. 1 of CATI presented a list of "Some Christian Web
Sites," more than one hundred, with no comments, but with this
disclaimer:
"Following you'll find a list of Christian Web sites, some of 
which you may like to check out further.  Some of the sites on
the list are 'Reformed' in perspective; others are more broadly
evangelical in viewpoint.  Obviously, this list is not a
complete list of Christian Web sites, nor does inclusion of a
particular Web site on the list necessarily imply endorsement
of that site."
Well, here are forty or so additional Christian Web sites,
this time with brief comments, but with the same disclaimer.
It is again hoped, however, that you will find some sites
that may be of interest to you that you may not have seen
before.

________________________________________________________________
4. FAMILY-SAFE INTERNET:  AN IMPORTANT STARTING POINT
In an article on "FAMILY-SAFE INTERNET" in Vol. 1, No. 2 of
CATI, I suggested that parents could use a filtering ISP (or
Internet Service Provider) and/or special software to monitor
or filter interaction with the Internet.  I want to back up and  
say that the most important factor related to bringing about a
family-safe Internet is neither of choosing the right ISP nor
choosing the right software, but of understanding one's 
responsibilities as a parent to be involved in the lives of
our children.
While I was a student at Westminster Seminary, one thing I
learned from Paul Woolley, Professor of Church History, was
that the responsibility for training children is not that of
the state nor that of the church nor that of the Christian
school, but that of the parents (Deuteronomy 6:4-7; Proverbs
22:6; Ephesians 6:4).  (I think he also expressed that view in
a booklet dealing with Family, Church, and State.)
Coming to terms with our parental responsibilities thus means
much more than turning our child over to a "Cybersitter" or
"safeplace.net."  Just as a babysitter may at best take our 
place temporarily, so also in the world of the Internet there
is no true substitute for caring parents.
So don't use the Internet as a babysitter.  That's no better
than sitting your child down in front of a television set for
the same purpose.  Even though their involvement may be both
monitored and filtered (by software and/or an ISP), your
children need more than that.  They need you.
What can you do?  Talk with them about the Internet, both the
benefits and the risks.  Spend time with them while they are on
the Internet.  Set up rules and understandings to be followed
whenever they are on the Internet when you are not there with
them (such as not to give out any personal information, such as
phone number or address, without checking with you).  Have the
computer in a room where there is heavy traffic, people coming
in and out continually (rather than in a private bedroom).  In
short, take time to be involved in the life of your children,
here as elsewhere.
A secondary thought:  you may need to make your own rules about
what Web sites it is appropriate or not appropriate for your
children to visit.  It may or may not be true currently, but
there was a point where CyberPatrol prevented children from
visiting Donald Wildmon's American Family Affiliation site (on
the supposition that it was a "hate" site, since it taught that
the gay lifestyle was morally wrong), but allowed children to
visit Web sites that were promoting acceptance of a gay/lesbian
lifestyle (on the supposition that "tolerance" is in itself a
virtue)!
Here is an instance where the Bible disagrees with the kid-safe
software (see Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27).  Thus Christian
parents may need to supersede the guidelines normally followed
by CyberPatrol or other software.  Depending on the product,
you may be able to add sites to or remove sites from their list
of prohibited sites.  My main point, however, is simply this:
that parents make the best parents.
To be sure, parents can make very good use of monitoring and
filtering software and/or ISPs that filter Internet content.
I'm not arguing that you not make use of such, if such is
helpful to you.  I'm just arguing that parents are the most
important factor in building a "family-safe Internet," and
that is true of those times when the child is off the computer
as well as on.  That's the role God has given you!
________________________________________________________________
5. SOME USES OF EMAIL FOR CHURCHES AND INDIVIDUALS
The Internet is simply a way in which we can be "connected"
with one another.  Just as we use the telephone to keep in
touch with one another, say, between Sundays (or meetings of
various church groups), so also email can be an important
supplementary way for us to stay "in touch."
Here are a couple of examples from my own congregation.
In addition to having a telephone prayer chain (to make people
aware of special needs during the week), so also we have an
email prayer chain (since -- as is the case with many other
congregations -- over half of the members of our congregation
are able to receive email).
Similarly, the contents of the church bulletin (in plain text
format) are sent to members, both to help them prepare for
Sunday services and to let them know in advance of special
planned events and prayer needs.
Email is also a good way for churches in the same area (say,
the same presbytery, classis, diocese, parish, or whatever
the appropriate term might be) to keep one another informed
of activities and needs, as well as a good way for churches
to keep in touch with missionaries on the field (some, not
all, of whom may have some access to email).  
In addition to email, of course, the Internet offers many
other opportunities (for example, does your church yet have
a Web page?), but perhaps these comments open up some of
the possibilities that are there waiting to be realized!
