Does history repeat itself? The social gospel of the 1920s and current social justice advocacy

   In an article in World Magazine, [https://world.wng.org/content/history_repeats_itself] Scott Allen examines what he thinks is a repeat of the social gospel  movement in the 1920s. He argues that the underlying assumptions in 1920 are very similar to those being utilized today. He concludes his article by saying "One that understands that evil is rooted in fallen human hearts, and not in capitalism, white supremacy, or the patriarchy. One that sees people as free, responsible, accountable moral agents and not as victims or oppressors."
