The Lord's Technologies

Theron is so creative when he thinks about how to present things in our training.  Me, I hit them straight on and say, here it is, here is how it should be done and get on with it.  Glad I have Theron to mellow me out and teach me and everyone else a better and more fun way.

Have you ever thought about the Lord's technologies?  We always think of technology in latter days, but from the beginning of time the Lord has used technology to further his work.  How about the Brother of Jared when the Lord touched 16 stones and made light - the first light bulbs.  Think of Lehi waking one morning and seeing the Liahona - a GPS, compass, and instant messenger.  What about the interpreters (two stones in silver bows) that Joseph Smith used - Google translate.

My challenge to our kids as they read the Book of Mormon or other scriptures, see if you can find other references to technologies that Lord provided to us.

We know that as Brigham Young said, "Every discovery in science and art, that is really true and useful to mankind has been given by direct revelation from God . . . We should take advantage of all these great discoveries." (Discourses of Brigham Young)
