Certainly Not, And Never

“I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” (Luke 21:32–33, NIV 1984).

My Musings – “The past was erased, the erasure forgotten, the lie became truth.” (“1984,” George Orwell). Life, as my generation knew it, is passing away. The clear delineation between right and wrong is blurring, as the culture erases or cancels moral truths once held dear. Will we forget? Will the lies become truth?

Many will forget. Many already have. For these, the lies very well could become their “truth.” It is quite possible that this current generation is the one Jesus spoke of in the above text. Read its context and you may very well recognize some of today’s headlines. Much of which is good and just in the world will pass away. But rest assured, His words, the words that define all that is good and just “will never pass away.

My Advice – We must cling to what we know to be true. But not so tightly that we do not pass it along to those who come behind.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.

  1. Great read! It’s so true that the line between right and wrong is getting blurred each day, and the erasure of the past and the lies becoming the truth is a real danger we’re facing. I’ve never considered the possibility of this generation being the one Jesus spoke of in Luke 21:32-33, but the context certainly makes a strong case.

    My question is, how do you think we can ensure that we pass on the truth to the next generation without being too rigid or dogmatic, and yet not losing the essence of what is true and right?

    1. Good question. Knowing the difference between disputable and indisputable matters. Between speaking the truth in love and losing the essence of what is true and right and compromising kindness. Between standing firm and pushing our opinions. I think the key is being intimately acquainted with the Word, listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, and loving the person enough to not soft pedal the truth, and loving the truth more than loving acceptance.
