We need to keep rethinking what we believe about God based on new ideas and new experiences.
Technologies penetrate every aspect of our lives, often in ways we aren’t even aware of. What Jewish values can and should guide our use of technology?
We hold certain beliefs, including beliefs about God — in particular, who or what God is (or is not) and how God acts (or doesn’t act) in the world. But what doesn’t happen often enough — whether someone is a fundamentalist, an atheist, or anything in between — is a willingness to rethink what we believe about God based on new ideas and new experiences.
Beliefs (even religious beliefs) themselves are neither good nor bad — it’s how those beliefs manifest themselves in our actions that we need to examine.
