It’s hard to believe that we are more than half way through 2011 already! Thinking back, there are many things that have happened, but for me it feels like I blinked at New Years and here I am at the beginning of July.
Seemingly, the pace of life has continued to increase at an alarming rate. To quote a famous song from the 70’s, “time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping into the future.” We can potentially alter the outcomes of future events and generations, change the course of our “future” history, but the one thing we can’t do is go back. We can’t undo, take back, or even revisit except in our minds. Where we find ourselves presently is most often the result of decisions or choices made, days, weeks, and even years past.
There have been myriads of books and movies about time travel, countless theories of how it could be accomplished, often with the “hope” of bettering our present and future conditions by rectifying past mistakes. However, time travel remains a complete impossibility. The closest biblical evidence we have for time being altered, is found in Joshua chapter 10, when the Lord spoke to Joshua to command the sun to stand still. With all we have discovered about Astronomy, our solar system, and the laws of gravity, to me this is one of the most fantastic events that occurred in the Old Testament (but I won’t get side-tracked by the science of this event).
