A Brave New World

TableTalk’s April edition features several articles on media, technology, etc. and its affect on our society. Burk Parsons offers a few helpful thoughts in his initial article. He observes how much families have changed. Even their conversations have changed. It is possible that everyone at a dinner table may be communicating with someone else, except anyone at the table. They may be all texting enjoying their own private virtual dialogue.  Yet, Parsons observe that”using appropriate new media or technology wisely and carefully” may be the way God intends for us to redeem the time  (Ephesians 5:16).  Jonathan Edwards resolutes, “…never to lose one moment of time; but to improve it the most profitable way I possibly can (5th resolution).” This proves that used wisely technology can be doxological.
