Human-computer Interaction (HCI) describes the relationship between computers and the people who use them to perform their jobs. HCI concepts apply to everything from smartphones to global networks.
Just like almost all things HCI can be used to do good things if used wisely, The word of God will be preached
With HCI the word of God can be taught in all nations. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations: and then shall the end come matt. 24:14

I believe that HCI is one of the tools that the devil uses to lure us away from Jesus Christ. It is so easy to access things that are sinful and go directly against what the Bible says to do. HCI is becoming more and more prominent, and sin is rising with it.
I’m not sure that I agree with the prompt saying HCI is bringing about the end of the age of the gentiles. I believe that we are here because the LORD wants us here. The minute he decides we don’t need to be here, we won’t be here. I think that HCI is becoming more prominent in inviting sin and temptation into our lives, but I don’t think it is going to end our lives. Jesus is the only one who can do that.
Just to make sure we are all on the same page, the textbook defines HCI as “A description of the relationship between computers and the people who use them to perform business-related tasks. HCI concepts apply to everything from a PC desktop to the main menu for a global network” (Tilley, 2020, 8.11.4).
As mentioned above, I think that HCI is being used to make sin and temptation more available, easier to access, and more normalized. Apparently, it is now normal for boys and men of all ages to regularly watch pornography and other disgusting forms of entertainment. The fact that this is so easy to access goes to show how easy it is to fall into the temptation that we carry around in our pockets all day.
A good Bible verse to remember in these times is Ephesians 6:11, which says “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil” (English standard version, 2001, Ephesians 6:11). There are many other Bible passages regarding this issue, some of which are my favorite Bible verses
