22 to be exact. Having lived long enough to say this, I think we 21st century Western Christians tend to err on the side of the pragmatic. If it works, it must be ok, and sometimes the “what works,” doesn’t’ get fully unpacked as to what something works toward. We repeatedly fail to understand that method and technology are not neutral, and that there are unintended consequences directly attached to our methods. This is not to say that they are automatically bad, but rather we need the view to “see down the road” to what may arise as a result of our actions. Because we have the technology and the method to do certain things, does it follow that those things should be done?
