Ten years of life changes taking us away from God
Ten years of life changes taking us away from God. This category is from an article about a decade of changes in American life. Most likely, it’s pretty much about life in any so-called developed country.
It wasn’t about God. It was just about changes, many related to technology. But as I was reading through them, I couldn’t help but notice that having God in our lives would / should change many of them.
Either the problems wouldn’t be there, or the impact would be lessened.
At the same time, as we fall deeper and deeper into this new way of life, many of them also take us away from God. Away from the solution that we so badly need.
Maybe it’s not intentional on our part. It just happens. And the next thing we know, it seems impossible to get out.
It’s also likely that none of the changes were introduced with the express intention of taking us away from God. However, it’s hard to imagine that some of them weren’t introduced with the full knowledge that they would make life more miserable for those who fall victim to those changes. After all, they do make a few people a whole lot richer.
In any case, we’ll go through a number of the 50 ways American life has changed in the last decade, to see the ultimate effect of those changes.
