If you could time travel, would you?
It was recently hypothesized that “Mathematics does not prohibit time travel”. This means that time travel could actually be possible, maybe. And that gets you thinking, would you time travel if you could?
Where would you go and what would you do?
If it were possible and you decided to time travel, you could go back and be a spectator watching yourself go through a favorite moment or experience. Like your first roller coaster, or first time driving a car, or the birth of your first child (perks of being a spectator on that last one).
You could also try to undo something you did in the past. If time travel is possible it would be worth a shot, right? It would be so incredibly tempting to try and right a wrong.
There have been enough time-travel movies to know that trying to fix our past rarely works out the way you would want, and oftentimes, it would only make things worse in the end.
That’s the bad news, we are stuck with our past being our past. Unchangeable and messy.
But wait! Here comes the good news from 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come”
Because of who God is and because of what He did for you and me, our unchangeable messy past no longer has any influence on our future.
And that beats anything you or I could do flying in a Time Machine.
