Just writing up some stuff on different approaches to technology. From those who see technology as liberator, to those who see it as oppressor, and those who see it as value-neutral. Then this popped up in the newsreader.
Somedays a doctrine of total depravity seems to get it right.
And as for the comment by the developer that
it’s vital to remember that what happens in the game stays in the game. Therefore, he added, people shouldn’t be afraid that the game’s players will step away from their computers filled with violent lust.
I’m not convinced that people don’t take the thoughts of their hearts with them into the game. Mark 7:14-16 springs to mind:
Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a man can make him ‘unclean’ by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him ‘unclean.'”
What’s inside of human beings that would want to make them play this game?
Obviously a case of technology building a better, brighter world for us all. (“sarcasm mode” there folks) Somedays you just despair of us ever doing the right thing.
