There’s so much violence and hatred. When is it enough? Why doesn’t God come down and save us from the misery that millions are experiencing? This question was hurled at me during my “X” Zone Radio interview with Rob McConnell.


hebrew word for violence is Hamas

Now after some inspired thought, I think I have the answer.

To fix the problem God has to fix us! We are the problem. Our arrogance and greed surges up through the cracks of the geo-political divisions of our planet. Violence always erupts at the pressure points. The real problem comes from our insidious greed for power, a gangrene of our own making.

So we’ve asked God for help but then, we’re not listening to Him. He’s offered to help a long time ago. He sent prophets and great messengers to all the different faiths. Kindness, gentleness, respect, love toward your neighbor, care for the planet, honor to God; we can even all agree on these moral principles. Well, they’re the celestial standards required to bring heaven onto earth. An alliance, from a celestial kingdom and government, has already been presented to us to create peace and harmony for all humanity. It’s real, it’s there, standing at our threshold.

“But nobody’s going to tell us what to do”, we say with belligerence.  We’re like spiritual toddlers petulantly pushing God’s instructions aside and saying, “No, I want to do it myself.” Like teenagers, we think we have all the answers. We act like spoiled children in the western world, and bullies on the playground of our planet. In our immaturity, we think we can get paradise for ourselves without the responsibility of citizenship in the cosmos.

We choose for ourselves what’s right and wrong. Or worse, we decide there is no right and wrong. Well, it isn’t working.

So yes, God is waiting. I guess He could kill us all off and let the animals roam free. But no, God loves us; He just hates how we act. He’s waiting for us to accept the conditions to the alliance he proposed and to play the Game of Life on our planet by his rules. He’s waiting for us to take his advice, use his laws and learn how to love each other. After all, H

e designed us to be gods on Earth– and that’s what we can be IF we will just hurry up…and spiritually – grow up.

That’s my thinking. Now…share your thoughts in the comment box below!

Straight from the big black book:
"Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth...." (Luke 11:2, KJV Bible)

[1]Hamas is an Arabic acronym for “Harakat al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyya,” which means “The Islamic Resistance Movement.” How strange though that “Hamas” is also an Arabic word that means “zeal” and an old Hebrew word meaning “violence, cruelty, and injustice”.″
