I'll love to Appreciate @ecotrain for always coming up with mind-blowing and complicated topic that as help me and others in digging deep into our well of wisdom and understanding of situation around us.
So Can Spirituality and Technology live together?
I'll love to explain base on my personal ideology.
The world is advancing, and everyone is growing and increasing in knowledge, rightly science/technology has proved the existence of so many things, Inventions and innovations has been made, which has made it possible for quite a number of persons to doubt the existence of God. But let's take a quick look at it.
Technologies are what better improve life this days, and one thing I've come to know about science is it's inconsistency, so to every technology you see today there's still a better one coming tomorrow "I'm not saying it's bad" but then the Beauty of Science comes from the acknowledgement of the existence of God. That's why Isaac Newton is one scientist I love so much, Not only because he believed there's God, but He could bring out science from God existence, no doubt it's beautiful.
Truthfully, science on it's own is confusing because there are still so many things they try and want to explain but they just can't, and the more they go the more they cannot.
Technology as bring about hope to many, E.g Artificial leg, arms and co to the lame, communication to your love once in distance places or warfront to mention but few*
The roles/impacts of technology on the the spread of Christianity can never be over emphasize. It's good to note that society has experienced a great development as a result of technological advances. Today we talk about industrial development, which has been a product of the improvement of technology in different industrial fields.
Technology has given us the opportunity to gain access to souls and spirits lifting messages E.g internet, online churches, CDs Radio etc
Beliefs or religions have spread throughout the globe due to technological advances such as the internet and other means that facilitate it.
Regarding the recreational and health aspect, technology has played a very important role, which has allowed many advances in medicine due to the same technology applied in that field.
It's technology that made it possible for me to read your question and respond... 😀
It's through the aide of technology that men of God can visit different cities on the same day for evangelism and spreading the gospel of Supreme being, as we are currently seeing In our generation today.
- I know technology as it loop holes, like how it brings about cyber war, how it can distract our mind from the spiritual realm, how is can influence our lifestyle by inflicting unnecessary pressure on us and could completely gain our attention making us an addict of one technological device or another.
But in My conclusion:
It's good to note that, we must be very careful so that technology will not have negative effect on our christian life...
When Spirituality is not replaced with technology and Technology is not replacing Spirituality.... But technology is being explained spiritually, it makes it Beautiful.
Wether we acknowledge it or not, it will get to a point where we can't actually explain everything (not due to our lack of study or something) but because it is supreme
I will leave you with this Bible passage:
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
