Christian Vanity of Vanities

All things are wearisome; Man is not able to tell it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, Nor is the ear filled with hearing. That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one might say, “See this, it is new”? Already it has existed for ages Which were before us. — Ecclesiastes 1:8–10

The book of Ecclesiastes has been rightly referred to as “God’s book on philosophy”. Although it provides a genuine message to non-believers that our various obsessions in and of the world are ultimately futile—as even secular literature and media admit in all the books, plays and movies on the tragedy of those who become obsessed with wealth, works and/or the flesh, we must remember that first and foremost this is a book written by a believer to believers. Yes, the very first and plain context of the book is the futility of believers pursing the same things in the same manner as non-believers, but there is also an accompanying, deeper application for all Christians at present, and that is the futility of pursuing the wrong thing in the name of Christianity. Every false teaching and its resultant false movement are documented in each of the trial and error approaches explored in Ecclesiastes.
