Digital Technology and the Christian Life

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. Such appeal is base on the old bu always up-to-date principle: “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31).
