Interview: A Christian view of technology

“Our goal with technology should be to have more healthy humans, not to create some kind of super humans”

Technology does seem to have its own momentum and currently be accelerating away from us, seemingly almost out of our control. But Christians should be wary of calls to attempt to opt-out rather than engage thoughtfully and critically with these developments. Ultimately, our goal with technology should not be to stop it, but to redeem it. I elaborated on some of these ideas in a recent interview with Evangelical Focus, a news website for European evangelicals based out of Spain.
