Nothing new under the sun…

I got married last week.

That information will make some of you trust me less, some of you trust me more, and–if I ever get big enough to bother with–will likely be used in an attempt to identify me.

I don’t really care.

With everything going on the past few weeks, I haven’t read much. At first, I thought I’d missed a lot, but the more I read, the more I realized that I haven’t missed anything.

Men are still rebelling against God.

Wives are still rebelling against their husbands.

Children are still rebelling against parents.

Servants are still demanding to rule their masters.

News, politics, the Christian men’s sphere–all of it is a repeat of the same song we’ve been dancing to our entire lives.

Don’t believe me? Go to Cane’s place. This is the one blog I read when I don’t have time to read blogs. If you could only read one blog, it’s the one I would tell you to read. Read the most recent articles. Cane writes that the grafting analogy is new to him, but read though the archives and you’ll see he has been preaching it for years–just without the picture.

Go to Dalrock’s page. The latest post is calling out the feminism lurking in “conservative Christian complementarianism.” Again, this is what Dalrock has been preaching for years. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against preaching the same message for years–Jeremiah preached the same message for 40 years, and it still wasn’t enough.

What I’m saying is that nothing changes.

Today’s rebellion is no different than yesterday’s.

The Word of God is the same today as it has always been–and just as unpopular.

  1. First – congratulations! You are embarking on this journey far better armed for success than I was. Rejoice in that knowledge, for it will save you many a pang. May God bless your household, wife and future progeny.

    There is indeed nothing new in the message, but there are fresh hearers each day. Men who will emerge from the fog to lead their families and instill the truth to a new generation.

    There truly is nothing new under the sun when you are faced with human nature. Women are still women, men are still men and we all must fight against the sin nature.

  2. Congratulations! I will go into the kitchen this moment and drink a salute to you, your bride, and to a lifelong and fruitful marriage.
