Often framed as prophetic truth telling, many of us humiliate others through social media. Viewed through the lens of the Parable of the Pharisee and Toll Collector, we consider how Christian humility offers a creative response to this habit of humiliation in ways that faithfully love others and witness to the mercy of God.

Erin Dufault-Hunter teaches Christian ethics at fuller…. she explores the intersection of technology, gender, sexuality, and socio-economic change, as in her article in the Journal for the Society of Christian Ethics, “The Downside of Getting It Up: How Viagra Reveals the Persistence of Patriarchy and the Need for Sexual Character.” She has published a book on the power of narrative and is currently writing Sex and Salvation: How the Erotic Matters for our Life with God (under contract with Baker Academic). She has presented papers reflecting on the implications of embodiment for a Christian ethic of virtue in ordinary life, such as considerations of faithful parenthood in a medicalized age and the nature of sexual fidelity within a “pornofied” society.
