“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.
