Is it the End of the World?

Is it the End of the World?


We All Long for Peace

Social commentator Dennis Miller tweeted an appropriate thought today:

“Humans are not wired to believe the world has gone this insane.”

It calls to mind an article I read in USA Today years ago. A psychologist said—I’m paraphrasing—that ancient man went through the mental stress of fighting, say, a saber-tooth tiger every so often. But, he said, today’s man and woman fight the emotional equivalent of a tiger every day!

What a descriptive way to put it.

The dark news of the day invades our every thought and moment. Mass murder in Boston. Mass explosion in Texas. Vicious, rancorous debate over gun control. In my world, I find it disturbing to watch the erosion of belief in the authority of Scripture. On and on it goes.

A few months ago, I visited Jerusalem’s Garden of Gethsemane. At one time, it was a place of great pain and anguish. Today, however, it is a place of serenity and calm.

If nothing else, the place is a reminder that God promises a future free from pain, rage, and fiends. A world no longer insane.
