Ready for a paradigm shift
Many people tends to equate faith with religion and consider it irrelevant to their tech-powered lifestyles. But what if faith is better thought of as a communications technology?
This revolutionary new idea is presented in the book ‘Faith Tech’, which I present on this website.
Perhaps you’ve heard that you can achieve anything if you just believe in yourself, but then you wonder … why should I believe in myself if I am just the product of random mutations? Where do we come from and what gives life meaning? If faith systems or religions claim to answer such questions, how do we evaluate them properly? And what about all the supernatural claims of religion? Do miracles really happen, and if they do, what do they tell us? And what does the word technology have to do with spiritual revelation? If you have any of these questions, ‘Faith Tech’ will interest you.
What’s in it
Faith shapes your world
Without faith there would be no invention, innovation, social transformation or cultural development. There would be no sports, arts or literature. Many people think that faith is a crutch for people who can’t reason well.
By patterns not definitions
We don’t begin life with classes on biochemistry: we drink milk. We don’t start learning about gravity from Newton’s laws: we fall over. We play catch before we study the equations of motion. In other words, we learn via sensations and experiences. Children who are denied the opportunity to develop in this way won’t pay attention in the classroom.
So it is with faith: We learn about faith, not by laws, rules or definitions, but through faith-defining experiences.
Familiar faith and hope
While the dictionary defines faith as a strong belief in the doctrines of a religion, I intend to show that even if you never visit a place of worship or participate in a religious rite, you are still using faith much more than you think. We all have a belief system or world view that lacks supporting evidence.
Moving mountains or chipping at stones?
This story of one man’s persistence was turned into a Bollywood film and is the subject of various inspirational Youtube clips. At first glance, the story seems to prove that faith can indeed move mountains, but does it? Find out in the video teaser to chapter 11 and of course in the book chapter itself.
Takeaways from the firing lines
In 2011, two armed men had burst into my friend Ghaffar’s home demanding to know his whereabouts. “We want to kill him,” they declared.
Many of the true life stories in the book Faith Tech are drawn from wild frontiers. As we know from sports, until we hit our limits, we will never know what is really possible.
Be part of the transformation
I believe that the message of the book Faith Tech is going to change the whole way that you think about, not just faith, but life itself.
