Last week I asked what you thought the Christian view of implantable technology should be.
A few of you chimed-in and many more were not exactly sure what the answer should be. On the ChurchMag Podcast, Phil Schneider and I talked about this issue further and shared an interview I had with John Dyer asking this same question.
As usual, John’s answer is direct, Biblical, and is an answer that can be applied to multiple tiers of technology that raise questions about how it intersects and interacts with our faith.
Here’s John Dyer’s answer to the question:
What Does the Bible Say About Implantable Technology?
“What if something was always on all the time, would I be able to have a Sabbath?”
The answer to the question about implantable technology isn’t a binary one—like John outlined in the podcast—but perhaps the wrong question to be asking.
As John points out, implantable technology is just around the corner from a technical standpoint, and considering how we use our smartphones, Google glasses and smartwatches, the consequence of implantable technology in our lives is already here.
How well do you think our Christian living is intersecting with today’s tech?
