Qotw #9.4: Can Spirituality and Technology Live Together?

in ecoTrain6 months ago

Greetings to the esteemed Ecotrain, today is Sunday and I hope you went to church to worship the creator of the universe.
The question of the week 9.4 is very unique in the sense that most spiritually inclined people thinks they just need to go to heaven and abandon the things created through science and technology that would've enabled them to serve God better. I'll start my entry by asking this question, how many miles can a spiritual person trek to preach the gospel in another state? Can a believer that is spiritually inclined ever say that he has not used any technological innovations since they became a Christian? The truth still remains that spirituality and technology are always together since the time of old. Remember that in Exodus 35:30-31, God told Moses that he has called Bezaleel... And has filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and all knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.

Remember that the spirit mentioned above is the spirit of God and no man can be said to be spiritual without having the spirit of God. Second, for a man to proceed into technological advancements he needs wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the area of technological innovations he wants to advance into. It's the spirit of God that was breathed in man during the creation of man that enables a man to creative in any area of science and technology. If God himself will fill man with the spirit of all manner of workmanship, then, God himself wants man to be both spiritual and technologically inclined. The above bible reference was in view of the building of the tabernacle in the wilderness.

In fact, spirituality and technology are working together to fulfill God's plan of man having dominion over the earth. Also, in Acts of the Apostles, Jesus Christ said I'll send you a comforter and he will teach you all truth. The development of cars, boats and planes are all dreams incubated by the spirit of God that are today visible on earth.
Can you be more spiritual than the missionaries that brought the gospel to Africa, Europe and Asia that used boats and ships as means of transportation. Everyone needs needs technology whether spiritual or not. Today, ministers of the gospel are using the satellite 🛰️🛰️🛰️🛰️ to televise the gospel all over the world.

Finally, spirituality or the spiritual man needs technology to engage the world faster. God himself is interesting with the advancement of technology, if it'll not make a man to ascribe the glory in their abilities to do the work.
