Diminishing God

In today’s sophisticated age it remains a constant temptation to elevate humans and diminish God. When Samuel F. B. Morse invented the telegraph more than 150 years ago, his first words sent by wire were “What hath God wrought.” When Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon in 1969, he said, “That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.” It used to be God who got credit for human innovation. That’s not the case anymore.
