The Tower of Google

Have you seen google translate? It's amazing!  The program will instantly translate between more than 60 worldwide languages.  While the technology has the potential for significant positive benefits, I cannot help think of the Tower of Babel event (read the account here).

Could it be that this new technology could virtually undo the linguistic boundaries that God put into place?

While technological advancements can be used for good, we have to realize that in general the hearts of mankind continue to strive for self-sufficiency, self-aggrandizement, and a resistance to submitting to the authority of our Creator. Technology will continue to change, but people are people, and our hearts will only find satisfaction when we place our faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

What do you think?
