The teaching of Eleanor Roosevelt introduced Americans to the concept of being progressive in the early 1900’s. Progressivism began as a social agenda but grew into a political movement. This ideology was thrust into politics under FDR’s presidency attempting to change all aspects of life. More than a hundred years later, education, medicine and theology have been influenced, altered and changed. Yet, has society progressed or are we going backward in time.
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, Isaiah 43:19.
One of my many responsibilities at work is to test various products. Over the course of a month, I come in contact with videos with suspected defects. Sometimes its the packaging, region or issues with freezing. This research allows me to keep up with genres, trends and a wide range of content. This past week I tested a hit television series to determine if customer complaints were accurate. While no defect was found, I began to wonder, “if this series is so popular, why is it going backward in time?”
What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun, Ecclesiastes 1:9.
According to one of the wisest man to walk the face of the earth, there is nothing new under the sun. Old ideas are repackaged like a used car salesman trying to get as much as he can out of a clunker. This role is played by the devil, using deception to lead the gullible, innocent and young astray. Anyone who does not possess a solid spiritual foundation is susceptible like Adam and Eve in the garden. Therefore, before you begin to go backward in time, let the light and truth of the Bible to show you the right path to take, Psalm 119:105.
