For friends and family members of people struggling with pornography addiction, newlifepartners.org provides lots of information and assistance. Bioethic Resources One very challenging area for Christians to consider is the use of technology in medicine. The Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity (cdhd.org) at Trinity International University is a bioethics research center whose mission is to explore the “nexus of biomedicine, biotechnology, and our common humanity.” The center seeks to help people understand the complex issues involved in biotechnology, nanotechnology, genetics, cloning, etc. Environmental Issue Resources The use of technology impacts not only humans but also our environment. The Evangelical Environment Network (creationcare.org) is a ministry seeking to care for God’s creation. They desire to “equip, inspire, disciple, and mobilize God’s people in their effort to care for God’s creation” by looking at the issues that stem from the use of technology, including global warming, pollution, access to clean water, etc. Books Following is a short list of books that the technology committee complied to help you continue to develop a biblical theology of technology, as well as consider some additional wisdom for incorporating technology into your life: • Communicating for Life: Christian Stewardship in Community and Media (RenewedMinds), by Quentin J.
