For over a decade now on this show, host Mark Call has looked at the admonition in Revelation 18:4 and talked about the ‘how’ and ‘why’ we are to “come out of her.” By now the plagues, too, are beyond obvious.

But does history, or economics, or even the stories of Scripture itself, give us any understanding of what happened to people in the past who TRIED to do that? Or, alternatively, who SHOULD have, and didn’t?

Today Mark leans a bit on his engineering background, and understanding of cycles, in everything from electronics and physics to economics and history, to make the point that Mark Twain described, albeit perhaps a bit humourously, that “history may not repeat EXACTLY, but it RHYMES.”

And there’s a whole LOT of value that we can take from a look there.
