Everything Old is New Again

Watching social progressives today is like seeing that 13-year-old girl, amazed at bell bottoms, thinking she was the first to discover them. When I look at the world around me, all I see is warmed-over paganism, and yet social progressives around the country (and even the world) are patting their smug selves on the back, declaring themselves on the "right" side of everything. However, nearly everything they embrace has been done before: open homosexuality, using chemicals to contracept or abort, making a joke out of marriage, seeing other cultures as honorable, but their rabble of poor (and reproducing) folk not so much. Except for using science to create life in the laboratory, or to end it before it's time, everything else can be found from a variety of pagan cultures throughout the world's history; there is nothing new under the sun. And yet, they mock Christ, misquote the Scriptures, make shocking (and almost always sexual) comments about priests, nuns, and the pope as if they have finally figured it all out; as if they were finally smart enough to not be "taken in by the spell" of religion. Sorry, pagans, but it's all been done before. From the very moment that Adam and Eve decided that they would play God, mankind has repeated that mistake over and over again. And for every child aborted, every moral teaching defied, every sin embraced, and every boundary broken, you're not doing anything new. Sure, you might be first to perform a particular experiment, such as creating an embryo from three parents, but overall this is nothing new - it's man trying to be the Creator. It's the sin of pride, often attributed to the sin that cause Satan to be cast from Heaven like a lightening bolt.

You're not ground-breaking. You're not representing progress; you're representing the past. The long-ago past. You're a has-been. The pagan past died when Christ the King was put on the cross. The serpent's head has been crushed. Christ the King reigns. Now. Right now.

Time for you to get on the winning side of history.
