Duality of Technology (CS 404)
Both God and Satan try to influence people to do good or to do evil. While the effects are obvious in people, their workings can also be seen in technology. For example, television, radio, and the World Wide Web provide truth and uplifting messages, but they also provide lies and vulgar media. As in times past, God inspires men to bring about good, but Satan comes along and inspires others to pervert what is good. But are we going to let that stop us from creating new technology? No! If we work to harness technology's power to spread the work of God, then we can strengthen ourselves in the battle between good and evil. Technology we can't even imagine is just over the horizon, and we need to be ready use it for the good of the world.
