No new thing

Ecclesiastes 1:9 says that “there is now new thing under the son.”
One saying I heard is; if it is new than it is not true, if it is true than it is not new.
We can repackage something. Give it a face lift. Change the ingredients. But it is still basically the same thing.
For those who say mankind makes new discoveries everyday, that statement is only partially true though. Mankind has discovered for himself yes, but it is still not true. John 1:3 “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” this verse is talking about Jesus. Jesus made it all, we are just getting around to finding out what He has made possible for us.
Also the high water mark for humanity is the sun. No matter how we try we really can’t get passed the sun. When men landed on the moon they were still beneath the sun. Our probes no matter the direction sent out are still beneath the sun from God’s perspective. And for that matter so is our morality, righteousness, abilities, and so on.
