Technology has made many things easier! Imagine life without GPS! Imagine running late and not being able to call and give a heads up. Imagine typing documents on a typewriter or searching through a library for information. Yes, many things are much easier because of technology. And there is another: we can choose what image or persona we project to the world around us. This ability to filter our lives in the view of others may not be such a good thing. Once we start filtering, how long is it until we are pretending, until we are lying, until we are hiding? The more filtered our lives become, the more difficult it is to be authentic. Just think, who did Jesus have some of his harshest words for? Hypocrites.
