Are you prepared for the post-technological age? As I have written in previous articles, when I write about a "crash" of the technology, and the "post-technological age," I am NOT stating that all the technology will go away or fail. What is inevitable is that we will recognize the limitations of this technology, including the ways it enslaves us, and we will be forced to use our God-given creativity and ingenuity to make smart uses of the technology, without depending upon it as much as we do now. But there are very few people today who are even thinking about that day, let alone preparing for it, and they will be the ones who suffer the most. So to prepare for the future post-technological age, we need to acknowledge the difference between knowledge and wisdom.
The spiritual wisdom that comes from God helps us to understand things that cannot be understood strictly in the natural realm. The really important issues of life, such as who is God, why did he create me, what is my purpose in life – are not found simply through “scientific” discovery. We must seek the spiritual wisdom from God via a relationship with him to understand these things.
There is a wisdom that does not come from human knowledge. It is not obtained by observation, or by using scientific methods. It is revealed by God, who is the Creator of the universe and stands outside of his creation, and therefore has much more wisdom than can be observed from within the creation.
