Forgetting What’s Real: How Modern Technology Distorts Creation’s Goodness

October 16, 2018   |  6:30-8:00 PM   |   Bozeman, MT

How does modern technology disconnect us from the earth and each other? In what ways does it disconnect us from God? How has our uncritical acceptance of modern technology distorted the way we interpret the world?

Scripture and the theological tradition are clear that creation is inherently good and demands faithful and respectful stewardship. But the philosophical paradigm quietly imposed by modern technology conflicts with Christianity’s interpretation of the created world in ways that corrupt and disfigure God’s good creation. YTI lecturer Lance Green explores how modern technology as a worldview conflicts with Christianity and how the church might respond. Borrowing from sources in theology, philosophy, and literature, this public lecture aims to provide fresh ways of thinking about our relationship to technology, God, and the whole of creation in a thoroughly technological age.
