As a techy pastor, I do often find myself at a crossroads between the two natures of technology – the often purely utilitarian aspect, and then the perverted and distorted use of it. We’ve all enjoyed the standard movie plot of a man trying to protect his invention from being turned into a weapon.
Scott McClellan at Collide Magazine just posted an article about the opposite – when wayward technology is redeemed for God’s purposes. You can read it here. It’s a cool application of scripture that got me thinking.
Scott speaks of the day when it will all be redeemed. I can’t wait for that day either. But, with the Kingdom being both now and then, people like Scott are already redeeming that technology as they serve the Kingdom with it.
