Before you write anything, whether writing a book, blogging or even tweeting, do you think about the consequences of what you write on future generations?
In this movie, Time Changer,the effects on future generations of what we write is explored.
The synopsis of the movie at its website is:
"The year is 1890, Bible professor Russel Carlisle (D. David Morin) has written a new manuscript, 'The Changing Times.' His book is about to receive a unanimous endorsement from the board members of the Grace Bible Seminary...until Dr. Norris Anderson (Gavin Mcleod)raises an issue over a 'difficulty' he has with something Carlisle has written.
"Dr. Anderson believes what Carlisle has written could seriously affect the future of coming generations. Using a secret time machine, Anderson sends Carlisle more than 100 years into the future; offering him a glimpse of where his writing will lead."
It is a very interesting premise, and we can see the results from 2 very different men. John Calvin wrote his Institutes of the Christian Religion, and we can still see the good effects of it on doctrine, government and the like. His influence with regard to the purity of Christian doctrine is simply astounding. The other person, who had a completely opposite effect to that of Calvin, is Darwin. His scientifically absurd and racist book has taken over the minds of men, and the negative effects can still be felt today. Complete murderous regimes have come to reign over the lives of men, all based on the premises of evolution.
Ideas have consequences! So, the next time you write something, think!
