Will all ideas change in the future?

Would it make sense for it to be okay to treat people as unequal 70 years from now?
For Christians to keep their faith in modern times, they will need to bear in mind that certain ideas should not keep changing, even if they can be continually developed. Christians today can wonder if the core messages of Christ are out-of-date in relation to modern thinking. However, the idea that a human being should treat another human being the way they would want to be treated cannot become outdated in its truth.
A Christian can realize the worth of the Golden Rule simply by thinking about why they would want people to treat them a certain way; it is a self-evident truth. It is also timeless. Would it make sense for it to be okay to treat people as unequal 70 years from now?
I think a major surprise and deviation of thought in modern times will be talk that some ideas are final. It has been popular to talk about how everything is always in a flux. However, true insight will recognize that some ideas are final.
