“Those Who Do Not Learn the Lessons of History”
Our world has proved a poor scholar. We make the same mistakes again and again. Speaking of the repeated mistakes of his own nation, Conrad Adenauer, one-time chancellor of West Germany, said, "The good Lord set definite limits on man's wisdom, but set no limits on his stupidity." We know how to make peace and yet we continue to build for war. The idiots are running the asylum. Zephaniah 3:2 says "She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in Jehovah; she drew not near to her God". Like ancient Israel we will stumble about in our disobedience till we are enslaved or destroyed. Does any of this
sound frighteningly familiar? Have we been down this road before? When will we learn?
