Modern Man and His Modern Conveniences

modern convenience

Whether it be shiny automobiles zooming saggy man along clean, pristine highways to a destination of his latest wonderment OR shiny, electric escalators moving man’s sagginess up and down between floors to do his very personal, very important shopping OR colorful, shiny smartphones bringing man’s saggy mind new and exciting thoughts from those who consider themselves to be his betters, MUCH is made of  the sheer and utter wonderfulness of saggy modern man’s MODERN CONVENIENCES.

What do some men who have been around say about the many modern conveniences of  saggy modern man?

“The more things that something can do means 1) more things to maintain; 2) more things to break; and, 3) more thing to fix.”

Modern man is HIGH on sniffing his own self-esteem, and like elementary school kids who have been conditioned to believe they are the SMARTEST kids THAT EVER WERE, modern man believes he is the GREATEST thing since sliced bread. Modern man believes he is sitting at the apex of man’s development; that NOTHING in man’s history can match the fabulous-ness of modern man and his fabulous modern accomplishments.

What does God’s Word have to say about modern man and his grade school-ish delusions of self-esteem?

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.  There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.”
–Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

The reader only need do a little research and he will come across stories FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD about ancient man whizzing about in his own personal flying machines.

The reader only need spend a few dozen minutes on the Internet and he will access accounts of ancient man and his ancient weapons, some of which are described as unleashing the “power of a thousand suns.”

And surely, the curious reader has already come across accounts of ancient man’s batteries, computers and communication devices?

What should the reader think about all of this?

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.  There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.”
–Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

This ought to also remind the reader who is interested in the end times of Matthew 24:37-39.

“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

Saggy modern man may make much of his ‘modern conveniences’ and hold them up as ‘proof’ that he is NOT saggy; that he will NOT disappear from history as did those who came before him; that he is, instead, the best that has EVER been.

BUT, there are a few–who, knowing Scripture–believe differently.

DOES the reader ever wonder about that which came before him?

DOES the reader ever think about HOW man learned to do the things he does?

DOES the reader believe that modern man is the ‘best that’s ever been’?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
