Billy Graham at TED on the limits of Technology
I love TED – it’s a mine of great stuff. I downloaded this ages ago – but have only now got round to watching it. Brilliant. 10 years ago, Billy Graham spoke at TED – not exactly the natural environment for preachers. But despite even then being a bit doddery and not in the best of health, he grabbed the opportunity with both horns. And in so doing, provides a great model for how to speak truth and wisdom into any situation. Set aside 25 minutes for this gem. With wit and his trademark self-deprecation, he offers 3 challenges that human ingenuity has never found solutions for:
- Human evil – how do we change man’s heart? The problem is within us.
- Human suffering – science advances technology – but it never removes suffering.
- Human death – even the brightest sparks come to an end.
