“God’s direct revelations ended long ago, your religions agree. Only old sacred books contain divine revelation. Most people can accept that God’s great truths have come TO humans THROUGH humans. They simply cannot accept that this could be true of humans living today. This is how you think. This is how you have it constructed.
If it’s old, it’s worthy; if it’s new, it’s unworthy.
If it’s old, it’s true; if it’s new, it’s false.
If it’s old, it’s right; if it’s new, it’s wrong.
If it’s old, it’s good; if it’s new, it’s bad.
This peculiar mindset is what makes progress on your planet so difficult, and evolution so time-consuming. What complicates all of this is that, as you have constructed it, this mindset applies only to things – that is, inanimate objects – and to ideas. Ironically, when it comes to PEOPLE you have it constructed the other way around.
If it’s new, it’s worthy; if it’s old, it’s unworthy. Thus, your society dismisses out of hand some of the brightest new ideas and some of the wisest old people.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “The New Revelations”
