The evolution of institution

It is 1 January 2008 and I'm alone at home with man-flu. It isn't great.

Anyway, I was thinking last night about how hard it is to get an accurate public perception of the past. For example, how many people know more than a couple of lines about Napoleon?

Then I was thinking about how quickly things change and evolve. For example, Baden-Powell only started the Scouting movement in 1907. Yet how much of his original advice is still relevant in scouting? He cannot have imagined what would happen with the organisation he started, how the official and unofficial parts of the scouting movement would evolve.

I wonder if that has happened with Jesus
