Advanced technology enhances communication. We can crunch data and make calculations heretofore thought impossible. Men went to the moon with computers far less powerful that today’s average desktop or laptop. Where will we go next? What will we do for an encore? Increased knowledge in medicine pushes back boundaries. Cures for disease become possible as well as replacement body parts. New technology enhances training tearing down boundaries in track, field, swimming, and a host of other athletic endeavors.
We exalt in these advances. We become enamoured with our success. We break down ancient boundaries that ought to remain. Advances in technology should not draw us away from these ancient moral and religious standards and boundaries.
Here is a significant one. We will ever remain creatures. We will never become the Creator. The supreme evil will always be joining with those who "worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever" (Romans 1:25).
God also sets a boundary between human beings and plants and animals. Adam named the animals (Genesis 2:19). Scientists continue this task. God gave the plants and animals for food (Genesis 2:9, Genesis 9:3). We continue to live off the land.
Caught between two worlds, we should not worship plants and animals. We must worship God. "Do not move the ancient boundary which your fathers have set" (Proverbs 22:28).
