The recent Netflix documentary, “The Social Dilemma,” brings together a handful of past Silicon Valley executives to begin to question and consider how our social media practices — and even the algorithms and business models — actually detract from human freedom, connection, health, and social stability. The question for Christians is not only how has social media changed the landscape of civility and discussion, but also how it is forming us either Godward or selfward. Deeper than that, is how technology exposes the human heart.
