I saw a post the other day on Facebook that said, “This is the dumbest generation that has ever existed.” And I thought to myself that could be! But the Bible says there is nothing new under the sun, in Ecclesiastes 1:9. So is it true this is the dumbest generation?
In Isaiah 1:4, says, “They have all gone away backwards.” Why? In Isaiah 1:5 it says, “The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.”
The world might say we are making progress or that we are “progressive” or that we are “woke.”
The term progressive means making use of or interested in new ideas, findings, or opportunities, moving forward or onward. While we certainly are making more and more technologies, this does not mean we are making our world a better place. In fact evidence is showing that people are going to be living less years on this planet as the years go by. And now that we have gone through Covid-19, they are making a prediction that because of Covid people will be living shorter lives. Why is life expectancy in the US lower than in other rich countries? – Our World in Data
Progressive ideas in technology have their own consequences. Artificial Intelligence is becoming so advanced that the people who create it may not even be able to control it, in other words it will have a mind of its own. 13 Mind-Blowing Things Artificial Intelligence Can Already Do Today (forbes.com) In the book of Daniel chapter 12:4, talks about the last days here on this earth. It says, “even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Many people are trying to be their own God and are trying to live forever. It is true people are traveling every where and knowledge keeps increasing much to our determent. Just like the Tower of Babel, when people where trying to reach God and be like God, people are still doing this today. Just like in Genesis the people built the Tower of Babel as an act of rebellion against God. They tried with their own hands to create their own ark of Salvation, their own fortress. They wanted to be like God. And so is it today with Artificial Intelligence, people want to be like God and create their own ways and do their own thing. They want to create their own spouses, their own children in their image, their own intelligence or knowledge. They want to have their own religion.
Then you have the progressive ideology in the LGBT or what I like to call the alphabet crowd. Us Bible believers are relics who act like a bunch of Hillbillies with our Bibles and dogmas. As these people go around having all their sexual lust and imaginations of their hearts propagated in every corner of the world, they demand that people respect them and tolerate them. But really what they mean is you need to tell us that what we are doing is so brave and that its okay to be who we want. In the mean time behind all of this vibrato is suicide, depression, addiction, violence, diseases, and the family being destroyed. These people will never have children of their own. Now they are allowed to adopt other people’s children and teach them that God is okay with their abominations. This is just child abuse. These poor children leave an abusive situation to enter into another one. This is not progress.
Also along with this progressive religion is the transgender movement. Parents not identifying their children at birth as a boy or a girl, but allowing the child, who has no idea what the world is like to have a gender change, administering hormones that make them unable to grow properly and unable to have a family of their own when they are older. This is not progress.
Then there is “progress” on the Satanic movement going on, with all it’s New Age “enlightenment.” My husband and I have seen many more people walking around with the pentagram tattoos even around here in rural Ohio. This particular symbol above is a pagan symbol. Pentagrams are symbols of Satan worship, but this one in particular means they worship the earth. Romans 1:25 says, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature more then the Creator.” In other worlds they worshiped God’s creation. They worship the things God has created including Satan, themselves, others, animals, and hand made idols. God made everything! It seams people would rather worship anything but God. People who worship this way are usually also evolutionalist. They believe we are evolving from animals, to humans, and recently humans to aliens. This is not progress! The Bible says in Romans 2:21-22, “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” Indeed!
Now people are so “smart” they want to erase history! How smart is that? Or they want to fight against being modest. I just read an article about an Olympic athlete who was upset because the judges said her too short “shorts” are inappropriate for public competition. They are too short! Or they don’t want to work, and the government keeps handing out money. God’s Word says if you don’t work you don’t eat. God has given us work to do and it’s a very good thing! None of this rebellion is progress.
I could go on and on but, to sum this up, let me make it plan, we are not making progress. We are digressing as a human race. Acting like animals and following after our own lustful desires. And its no wonder because they teach we are animals with the evolution theory. The world would rather fight then work. They would rather be anything then what created them to be. They are professing themselves to be wise, but they became fools, Romans1:22. And the judgment of God is on them, Romans 1:28, And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind. Reprobate means to condemn strongly as unworthy, unacceptable, or evil. 2 : to refuse to accept : reject. Indeed, I can conclude we are living in a dumb and foolish generation and it’s only going to get worse before the Lord returns.
