The inventions between me and the world

Sometimes, Christians with a sympathetic view of culture (like myself) have a tendency to treat it all—including technology—as though it were neutral, but this isn’t the case. Like all of creation, the technological world bears witness to God’s glory and goodness with its undoubted helpfulness, its moments of beauty, and its occasional ability to inspire awe. But also like all of creation, it bears the stain and destructive power of sin, introducing us to whole new ways to destroy relationships, disrupt our lives, and distract from the glory we were created to behold.

I enjoyed Mike Cosper’s thoughtful piece on technology (remember, he’s a New Calvinist, so he means Apple!) and the distance it puts between us and the reality – the people and things – with which we need to engage.
