Social change always comes when the next generation decides to no longer accept what the last generation accepted. (Mike McCaman, consultant)
While McCamen’s observation is obviously true, its results can be either good or not so good. When we disregard traditions that hold to strong values and morals, the result will be disastrous. When new learning reveals the faults of popular traditions, then we must pursue change that will support and improve the quality of life.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world (Romans 12:2). Stand firm and keep a strong grip on the teaching we passed on to you both in person and by letter. (2 Thessalonians 2:15)
