In a world of artificial intelligence, robotics, iPhones, 80″ flat panel screen televisions, Bugatti Chiron cars that go from 0 – 60 and back to 0 in 6 seconds, people might sit back smugly and say we’ve reached a mile stone in the history of man. Technologically speaking, that may be true, although none of it means anything if there aren’t people to enjoy and use these things. In other words, man is the common denominator in all of history – technologically speaking, culturally speaking, economically speaking etc.
So in order to determine if there had been any changes, we have to examine that from the aspect of man and man alone. When people communicated by voice face to face; had rudimentary tools, walked to their destinations (maybe they rode a mule or horse), and so on, what was life like then? Man fought in wars, murdered and oppressed each other, lied, stole, cheated, had children out of wedlock, married and divorced etc. So, the answer to what has changed; it’s “nothing”! If anything has changed, it is the sophistication with which we do all of the above. The above is just an expression of man’s sinful nature being worked out in history, and that continues today.
The one meaningful change is when a man/woman have their heart changed by the Holy Spirit so that they no longer want to sin (that doesn’t lead to absolute sinlessness), and as such, their focus is on God and His laws and precepts, and they want to obey Him. If enough people have their hearts changed, then the sin in and throughout society is mitigated and thereby bringing a modicum of peace, order and prosperity.
Satan, who is the enemy of God, does not want that to be the case, and so he sows the seeds of discord leading to the above listed sins and disrupts society leading to wars, poverty, disease etc. St. Paul in the book of Romans points out that the wicked suppress the truth in unrighteousness – even though the law of God is written on their hearts! Democratic Presidential Candidate (referred to in the photo above) Beto O’Rourke is happy to do the work of Satan and masquerade, as Scripture says, as an “angel of light”! Through, and by, the completed work on the cross of Jesus Christ, the victory against death has been won, but there are a lot of angry people out there who have not been “saved”, because God chooses whom He will, and they haven’t been chosen. Therefore, they are not only angry at God, but they are angry at God’s elect.
The bottom line is that nothing has, is, or will change for man until Jesus Christ returns to this world to judge it. At that time, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of lords, King of kings and God of gods. Until then, the elect will preach the Gospel, and the wicked will reject it. God made the wicked for destruction; even the elect often has a problem with that fact. Scripture admonishes us to “beware of the man who speaks of change.” Hear that Obama?
