Faith Hope and Love

Awhile back I was listening to Genevieve Bell from Intel talk on ABC's Future Tense about how the internet is used and how people become afraid of technology when it dislodges current perceptions of time, space and relationships. She discusses how the Japanese and American cultures perceive robots very differently based on the stories told in their respective societies about robots

I am neither a utopian nor disutopian futurist as I believe there will be strong elements of good and bad over the longer time span - and just like in the past there may be long periods of bleakness and long periods of better times (decades or centuries in each case).

But it makes me think that it is an urgent job of Christians to point out that our "hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name" 
(Edward Mote - The Solid Rock').
