About Christnology

    Christnology [krahyst-nol-uh-jee]
    noun
    The fusion of Christ and technology as applicable to a Christian's life.


    Technology is not evil. Often times we hear about how "technology is taking over" and how we have morphed the internet into an idol. I say it doesn't have to be this way. We can redirect the power of technology to better ourselves and strengthen, rather than weaken, our spiritual lives. I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination on this topic, but I know it's possible and I want to share with you what I discover along the way.

    My first step was this very blog. I'm combining my passion for technology with my love for Christ and I'd love for you to join me!

    This blog will focus on how we can use technology on our daily walk with Christ. Of course there will be the general software recommendation and other technology related posts that may or may not relate to Christianity (and vice-versa), but I'm hoping to gear the majority of posts towards finding Christ in technology.

    1. Seeing as how the Vatican has openly embraced technologies for restoration of documents, carbon-dating (and then denied it, and then embraced it again), has a website, etc...

      Who has ever claimed in a serious religious context that "technology is evil" and in any way "weakens our spiritual lives"?

    2. I don't mean that the Vatican or the Coptic Holy Synod or any other religious organization has titled technology as being evil, as they certainly have not -- rather I mean to oppose the stigma that the internet (and technology in general) has become an idol in our lives.

      Which, unfortunately, is very much true for many of us -- all I'm doing here is trying to find ways to turn what could be a very negative influence on my own spiritual life into a positive one by using technology to help me spiritually -- and sharing those discoveries with the readers of Christnology.
