Technology and Christian love

From Brian Brock’s recent weighty work, Christian Ethics in a Technological Age (pp. 378–79):

“Technology assessment has only one inviolable prohibition: Thou shalt not undermine the survival of the institution, or stated positively: Thou shalt protect your own institution by tirelessly expanding those resources under your control. The Christian community has one inviolable claim upon it that can only be stated in positive terms: Thou shalt love the Lord your God and your neighbor as yourself. The promise of Christ is that collaboration with his love frees humans from the compulsions to expansion driven by fear of a world bound to securing its own well-being.”
