Computerised Christianity. Push the right buttons, enter the right code, insert the correct data and bingo, print out your own salvation.
You do your part and the Divine Computer does his. No need to pray (after all you control the keyboard). No emotional attachment necessary (who wants to hug circuits?).
And Worship, well, worship is a lab exercise - insert the rituals and see the results.
Religion by computer - that's what happens when.......
- you replace the living God with the cold system
- you replace inestimable love with proforma budget
- you replace the ultimate sacrifice of Christ with the puny achievements of man
