I can’t speak for anyone else, yet I tend to believe that the older you become the greater the likelihood of being passed by. The generation before me grew up with type writers, record players and the radio. Although some of the new gadgets are enticing, the stubborn cling to their past. Before long technological advances can leave even the educated lost in the dark.
Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” – Genesis 3:1
While getting lost last weekend, I realized how dependent individuals have become on GPS. In a car full of hungry stomachs, the old school, maps, were bickering against the voice on a cell phone. Neither seemed to be reliable as a 10 minute car ride turned into a 45 minute argument. Perhaps the more one trusts in apps, technology and websites, the weaker the human mind becomes.
I will use them to test Israel and see whether they will keep the way of the LORD and walk in it as their ancestors did.” – Judges 2:22
From a spiritual perspective, sometimes the newest teachings are merely recycled lies from the past. The New Age Movement began in the Garden of Eden inspired by Lucifer. Humanism was conceived during the days of Judges when people did what they thought was right in their own eyes. Finally, the idea that there are many paths to heaven was confronted by Jesus during the first century, John 14:6. Thus, if you feel like the world is passing you by, lean on God’s Word, the Bible to find your way home, Psalm 119:105.
