It doesn’t happen every day, but I just read something from Brian McLaren that I not only agree with but applaud.
“[Philosopher Marshall] McLuhan said that every innovation is an amputation. For example, when you invent the wheel, your legs become weaker. When you invent the television, your ability to become present becomes weaker. When you invent the amplifier, your voice becomes weaker. We need to reflect on this powerful insight and ask, In what ways is technology subtracting or amputating just at the moment we think it’s adding and empowering? We should always use it with care, remembering that Jesus modeled personal incarnation, not projection and amplification.”
