For Those Who Think I'm a Luddite

This is taken from my CV:

"I was awarded a technology grant of $1000 in 2001 for creating a fully functional web page for one of my courses. I was the first Denver Seminary faculty member to do so."

Moreover, I am the only Denver Seminary professor (to my knowledge) to have both a web page (since 1996) and a blog (since 2005).

Hi Dr Groothius:

I am a little lost here and though you could help. What exactly does David Hart mean in "The Beauty of the Infinite" when he says that God is "infinitely determining"?


PS: Also, just wrote an article on the Sword of the Religion in Islam which you may find interesting.

So, did you spend the $1,000 repairing your Gremlin?

(wink, wink)

So this means you are a Luddite with a webpage.

In all seriousness, though, I do like the fact that you question our use of technology. I'm a product of a much younger generation that doesn't question use of technology much. Unless of course, that technology is weapons.

Cell phones can be used a weapons.

Well I can see that you are not a luddite, but I still only know what you dislike about certain new technologies and no reason why you like any. You have a webpage and blog and own a cell phone, but are they necessary evils, or do you actually like them?
