The Weekly Hit List: December 12, 2013

Craig Detweiler, author of iGods, was interviewed by Daniel Darling on Leadership Journal blog Out of Ur.

Some might advocate a complete withdrawal from technology and yet you would say that reflects a poor theology as well, would you not?

“No one escapes the pull of technology and how it enhances our lives. Clothing was a great consolation for Adam and Eve. Same with the hoe or the plow. In building an ark to God’s specifications, Noah preserved the biodiversity of creation. We don’t think of the fork as technology, because we all embrace it as a great invention. Same with glasses. Who wants to go back to life without penicillin? God commanded us to be fruitful and multiply. Better agriculture, medicine, and education help us fulfill that calling. We’re also called to replenish the earth, to steward our resources. Technology can make us better servants of God and each other.”
