Holiness and the Cult of the Future
Christian apologist G.K. Chesterton once wrote, "The last few decades have been marked by a special cultivation of the romance of the future. We seem to have made up our minds to misunderstand what has happened; and we turn, with a sort of relief, to stating what will happen--which is (apparently) much easier. The modern man no longer presents the memoirs of his great grandfather; but is engaged in writing a detailed and authoritative biography of his [own] great-grandson."
So, what does any of that have to do with holiness? Check out the Scripture for this teaching and dive in!
