-Christianizing the Internet?

Posted by | .

Here’s a link to a Christianity Today interview of ‘A list’ blogger Tim Challies of Challies.com:

Christianizing the Social Network

It’s about Challies new book “The Next Story: Life and Faith after the Digital Explosion” (Zondervan) and his perceptions about how the internet and modern technology impacts the Christian faith.

Here’s the top quote from the interview coming in response to the question-“Is a specifically Reformed understanding of technology possible?”:

“… A Reformed understanding would take into account God’s sovereignty even over technology as the starting point and ending point. God saw fit to allow us technology, and God cares how we use it. Our job is to ensure that we’re using technology in a way that’s subject to his authority.”

    Don’t you think this is a little over the top? I know God is over the internet as well, since he’s God, but labeling something a “reformed view” is a little much in my opinion.

    Dan,
    I believe that the idea of a ‘reformed view’ of the internet posed by the interviewer was over the top but the part of the response by Challies that I quoted was sound and worth considering.
