  • It has been said, “history repeats itself.” I think that this is more than a random statement that someone made in the past. I believe there is truth spoken in these words. In fact, the Bible is full of history that would agree with this statement.

    Across centuries of time history records many accounts that seem to eventually be repeated again and again. One would think that by the 21st century, man would be wiser and more intelligent by having looked at the past with greater respect.
