    This hermeneutical reflection argues that only the Scriptures are capable of leading the church out of the maze of so many ethical options and theological points of view vying for acceptance.

    This essay offers some thoughts on digital technology and argues that we should bring our digital life under the Lordship of Jesus. It deals with the philosophy, theology, and ethics of digital technology. It concludes with an injunction for us to be masters of our technology, never the servants.
