Anyway, those are my thoughts. In some ways, we as a culture/era continue to grow in knowledge and in other ways we regress perhaps.
Amen to that.
1. We have all the information we could ever want…but the critical thinking skills necessary to filter good information from garbage, apply the information, and even add to it have gone down.
2. We have the means to fight all sorts of diseases…yet our bodies and weaker and more vulnerable than ever before.
3. We have the ability to communicate across the world and speak in all the languages of men….yet, we fight as brutally as ever and the wars in our “advanced era” of the 20th-21st century far and away eclipse the sheer loss of life of any period before it.
4. We have the power to give our children all the protection, knowledge, and skills that they need to succeed…but so many fail to teach them responsibility, discipline, and empathy.
We have advanced so far….yet learned so little.
Yours in Christ,
