Printing 23 Jun 2018
Over the centuries books and writing have played an important role in history. Ideas and stories could be documented and archived for newer generations. Thoughts could be communicated and spread. Religion and Science could develop.
Printing economized books and increased possibilities for communication
Luther said "read the bible". And such only had become possible through the invention of book printing. So Luther certainly was an innovator.
More innovations in communication
Just to name a few:
- Mobile Phones
Each of those inventions has dramatically changed our world.
Communications through all those 'wonderful' techniques have flooded our minds and hearts. With having so much knowledge, we may feel like 'God'. We can know almost anything.
We see all the needs in the world. We know about famines far away, lonely people nearby, etc. ... but I feel paralyzed with so many options in life.
