Topic: Biblical View of Technology
Read the following excerpt from an IT Christian professional (Stephen Whiting, 2011)
Technology is, at times, considered by Christians in a negative light. This is especially true when using technology becomes another way of conforming to the world (Romans 12:2). However, there is evidence in the Bible that technology is looked upon favorably by God. For example, Psalm 119:105 reads, “Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light for my path.” The lamp is a form of technology and if one views God’s Word in a positive light, then the lamp should be taken positively as well.
