The Carousel of Progress:
Around or Ahead?
Technology promises to revolutionize our current educational systems, or so we think. In a recent issue of Educational Leadership, Marc Prensky stated, “In fact, in the 21st century, technology is the key to thinking about and knowing about the world”.
Is this healthy? Is this true? Is this Biblical? Should Christian educators embrace or discard this line of reasoning? Are we moving in circles or are we making progress?

Devotional: Grace and Tolerance“…Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! …don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?” – Romans 12:1-3
“You can’t judge me!” It’s the mantra of our generation. Roughly translated, it means: I should be allowed to do whatever I want, and you should accept me and my actions. Taking a stand for truth as a follower of Jesus Christ and demonstrating God’s grace at the same time can be difficult. That’s exactly what this verse addresses.
As a recipient of grace, we must realize that God’s grace is abundant and free to everyone. We are not in a position to withhold it, or even taint it. We cannot be unloving toward someone who is bound by their sin. We should always seek to offer God’s grace to others.
At the same time, we must always point others to Jesus Christ and the truth He proclaims. We must value the price He paid to offer grace to us. We will not cheapen it by acting as though there is no such thing as sin. Neither can we act as though there are sins for which Jesus’ blood did not fully pay. We must continue to focus on Jesus the standard of truth and the One who died in order to offer God’s grace.
In our challenging times where truth is often exchanged for tolerance, it is still God’s grace that makes the difference.
