Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time. – Ecclesiastes 1:10 (NIV)
When I hear of a “new revelation” or a bible teacher who says, “This has never been taught before,” I want to run away! God is always doing something new, but if we look closely, we’ll find that the new thing is actually something very old that has come to life in our generation. When one reads church history, we find many of the same challenges that we face today. To think that we are original is naïve at best and dangerous at worse.
