Fast Facts on a Biblical View of Technology
- The ability to design and use technology is a gift from God and a sign that humans are uniquely made in the image of God (Gen 1:27).
- Technology can be used for good or bad. As Christians our use of technology should reflect Christ’s commands to love God and others (Mark 12:30-31).
- Technology influences our worldview and relationships. We must guard our hearts and be rooted in Scripture to discern right from wrong (Proverbs 4:23; Matthew 7:24-27).
- No technology is worth compromising our walk with the Lord. If your technology causes you to stumble you may need to remove it from your life or seek accountability (Matthew 5:29-30; Ephesians 5:8-11; Hebrews 10:24).
