A Tale Of Two Stories

Posted on December 13, 2021

We can view life as one of two stories. The story of evolution places humanity on an upward track of progress; things will get better and better as we advance forward in time. The other story sets us in redemption history—it acknowledges the brokenness and selfishness of humanity but celebrates God’s power to restore us. This redemption story is a tale of our creative powers being used for both death and life. Our duality spurs us to be both designers of stunning architecture and producers of torture instruments. Join Professor Jeremy Pettitt and podcaster Austin Murphy for a conversation on how our paradigms for interpreting humanity’s purpose determine our approaches to technology.
