Is This What We’ve Become?

 “Godly sorrow brings repentance”
2 Corinthians 7:10

This cartoon was shared with me recently. I have to confess that I was amused by it, but only in a sad kind of way. As one who has read a significant amount of church history, it struck a bit of a nerve with me. Isn’t it interesting how many of us seem to think that, unlike the generations before us, we’re the ones who “finally got the Bible right?” Maybe interesting is the wrong word.

Thankfully this self-righteousness does not represent all Christendom!

However, for those that it is true, by default it would seem that they’re implying that all Christians before them were somehow ignorant in their faith. Taken one step further, they would probably say the same of traditions different than theirs today as well. Sadly I think we all know people like that. Is this what we’ve become? God forgive us!
