Some progressivists think that mankind has progressed to the point where we can reinterpret the Scriptures for our time in a way that contradicts their meaning, that we are mature now and we don’t have to kneel before God, that our advancement gives us the right to manipulate even the building blocks of nature.
Really, we aren’t “maturing” out of some previous form of humanity. Men and women are pretty much the same in the basic details of life as they were a long time ago, accounting of course for technical advancements.
Here is a great tweet I spotted this morning that drives the point home.
Just a letter from 2270 years ago – but only left side
“I hear you got up too soon and had a relapse. Please try to recover as fast as possible, take good care, regain your health and let us know if you need any help”@BLMedieval Papyrus 2678 #Health #BeKind #MondayMotivation pic.twitter.com/nsCAcF4Q28
