The first cloaking device, a staple plot feature on programs such as Star Trek, has been created. We’ve grown comfortable with science fiction concepts over the last few decades. We speak of them as easily as we do of objects or events in our everyday world. But we recognize that they’re fiction. Now however, the line is beginning to blur, and that makes techies and trekkies alike stand back in wonder and fascination. We’re on the cusp of a world both familiar and yet novel. It holds the promise of exciting new ways of living but it also has the potential to be used as the basis for the most evil, deceptive system the world ever has seen – a system devised in hell. While some of these advances may be beneficial, we should move toward them cautiously, and embrace them only after considering their possible ramifications in light of where Scripture tells us we’re going and how they may be used.
