Do Not Associate With Those Given to Change

Liberals of all stripes, but especially school teachers are proud to call themselves “change agents.” They define a change agent as “someone who acts as a catalyst for change, to trigger growth in an organization or culture.” According to The Principal of Change this applies to schools as well. In the opening paragraphs I found this quote: “If a school embodies itself as a true learning organization, change will happen much quicker.” [emphasis in original]

Of course if you're changing, it means you're changing from something to something else. For instance: changing to accept homosexual marriage means rejecting marriage as only between one man and one woman. The two are incompatible. The only way to change so you can accept homosexual marriage is to change away from accepting traditional marriage. Naturally this opens the door to all kinds of other types of “marriage”: polygamous marriages, incestuous marriages, marriage between humans and animals, temporary marriages – the list could go on and on.

When someone claims to be a change agent or is in favor of change per sé, you always have to ask, “What is it they want to change? From what? To what?”

The Bible has something to say about this business of change. In Proverbs 24:21-22, we read:

My son, fear the Lord and the king;
Do not associate with those given to change;
For their calamity will rise suddenly,
And who knows the ruin those two can bring?

“Those two” are the Lord and the king. In America today the king – i.e.; the President – can't act unilaterally (or isn't supposed to) so its mainly God who will bring calamity on the “change agents” and all those who associate with them.

This is not to say all change is bad. It only says those who are given to change as a habitual way of life, those who live to change or make changes, those who instigate change on a regular basis, those who insist all change – regardless of it's effect – is always good; these are the ones the Scriptures are warning us about. These are the ones you must avoid.

Therefore, be brave to stand on the Bible and reject godless change which does nothing but destroy.
