As internet usage increased so has the concern to protect one’s privacy. Many people may think that their privacy is protected by the businesses or organizations that they deal with. This is true and some cases but not true in others. Business and organizations may choose to accept certain risks pertaining to their organization but they do not have the right to put their customer’s data at risk (Johnson, 2015). One’s privacy should always be protected between people and organizations. However, the privacy between oneself and God is a different story. Being that Christians serve an omnipotent and omnipresent God, there is no privacy between God and His children. Hebrews 4:12-13 reads, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” (NKJV). The true difference between Christianity and other religions is that Christians establish a loving relationship with and all knowing all seeing God.Article IV of the US Constitution states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probably cause, supported by Oath of affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” (U.S. Const. amend. IV). Unless the government has probable cause and a warrant, they should not have the authority to monitor its citizen’s internet traffic. An exception would be if the citizen signed a waiver giving up their fourth amendment right when signing up for internet service; the government would then have the authority to monitor usage.
