Ministry in the Metaverse – A Fad or New Frontier to Preach the Gospel? [Versión Inglesa]

EDMOND, Okla. — Even as COVID restrictions relax, many houses of worship have found it difficult to attract returning parishioners at their pre-pandemic attendance levels. The resulting physical and financial drop-off further complicates the worrying trend of church closures outpacing new ones to replace them.

But the shift also stirred a religious awakening of sorts, forcing once reluctant pastors and church leaders to rethink their outreach and adopt widely-used technology, like livestreaming which has allowed them to reach audiences far beyond their church walls.

Now some faith leaders are considering what’s next on the technology horizon and the implications for ministry, eying the unchartered world of the metaverse to plant churches and preach the gospel.

  1. Love the hipocrasy in this comment section. Ya'll claiming to be all religious and self righteous yet you sit there judging people when you claim only god can judge and making assumptions solely on your fear. This is 2022, we're out of the dark ages, grow up and start treating other people better. How about the people that can't go to church? People disabled, sick, or maybe have social anxiety or mental issues that make being in a physical church difficult. There is nothing wrong with VR, It's a social platform and like everything else, should be used in moderation. Im a 911 dispatcher and Firefighter, I don't have the time to attend a physical church, not to mention my local ones are awful. This allows me my 1 hour of prayer and faith with other people each week. Ya'll acting like all we do is put on the headset 24/7 and nothing else.

  2. This news would have been way more believable 4 months ago before the "Metaverse" has almost killed Facebook, have you seen its stock? dropped about 50%, mostly as no one wants it, the graphics are SOOOO bad, no one wants to buy in to it.

    Not sure how anyone misses this point, Judas was a disciple and yet he was the one betraying Jesus, so being like Judas is a good thing? no clearly not, so if it sounds like a bad idea, even though you think its helps God, it clearly doesn't.

  3. That lady could have looked for a church with Zoom meetings.

  4. The Bible says do not forsake the Assembly of the brethren you cannot do this and be in person I come against this in the name of Jesus it is not right if I'm wrong God forgive me

  5. Ohhh no! Christian's need each other, need face to face and to gather in God's name. Call me old fashion, but fantasy world of people worshiping as robots, cats, or shepherds seems just plan wrong to me.

  6. Go to the REAL CHURCH! This is FILTHY! Fake so called faith leaders. Leaders into Hell!!!

  7. How can anyone be reached when it promotes even more isolation. We're living in a sick world.

  8. You finding some metaverse play to earn game to play? I playing Zombie World Z so i recomend it. The game have big community and the price really stablizing, so you can invest and re back your investment just 2-30 days ROI

  9. Well if it's used as a platform to spread the gospel then why not.🤷🏾‍♂️

  10. Don't fall for it! All the beast system!

  11. — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness… it is their right, it is … post this to every YouTube channel you can put it on.

  12. Jesus said lying signs and wonders would come in the last days metaverse is one of them

  13. The Meta verse animation/avatar s in this video remind me so much of the old music video by fire straits money for nothing. It looks kinda cool, very primitive though.

  14. I rebuke this in the name of Jesus! 🙏🏼

  15. Jesus Christ loves me no matter what and I believe Him with all my life
