LAVISH LOVE: How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (I John 3:1 NIV)

The Computer…

“The computer makes us fantastically more able to calculate and analyze; it does not help us to meditate. We have instruments to enable us to see everything from the nebulae to the neutron–evImageerything, except ourselves. We have immeasurably extended our gift of sight, but not of insight. For that we have the same equipment as the eighth-century prophets. Potentially the same, but actually far poorer, for while we have been so busy extending one aspect of the knowing and telling self, we have allowed other aspects to atrophy. We have built ourselves up into powerful transmitting stations, but as receiving sets we are feeble.”

John V. Taylor, The Go-Between God

(quote by Dr. Paul Brand & Philip Yancey in “In His Image”)
