RADIO PROGRAM No. 179 - Is the Individual Obsolete?

QUESTIONER: Automation is "becoming more and more widespread. What about fears that the individual is rapidly becoming obsolete?

SPEAKER: Although automation is a challenge, most people agree that it is a progressive step. Man can never become obsolete because he is needed to express God. We read in the Bible (Isa. 43:12), "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God." Man lives to express God. However, we are inclined to think of ourselves as mortals—as a mechanic or a typesetter or an office worker—but actually the real need is to know our real self as the spiritual likeness of God, and this real, spiritual self is never obsolete.
