Jesus is the answer for the world’s problem


There is so much trouble in the world; one can hardly keep up with the frequency of troubling events that keep popping up.

Here in the USA we have more than our fair share of problems.

But the world does not have to exist in a continuous state of unrest. If its citizens could find it important to set their differences aside and see each other as human beings, rather than non-entities, then this wretched world would be a better place.

Still, I am aware that it will take more than spoken and written words to change the world. It will take a revival, but revival cannot happen without willing hearts.

Therefore, I am suggesting people everywhere embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ and apply them to their lives. A good place to start is Matthew 5:38-48:

Teaching about Revenge

“You have heard the law that says the punishment must match the injury: ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also. If you got sued in court and your shirt got taken in the process, give your coat, too. If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile, carry it two miles. Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.

Teaching about Love for Enemies

“You have also heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.”

  1. Where have you been??? Good post. It is horrible isn’t it what all is going on in the world. I heard last week on the news, Isis cut a five year old in half. Noel, there are not any words to explain the grief and sorrow I have felt in my soul over that.

    It is so hard to “love” people who could do such a thing. Without the Holy Spirit guiding me, I do not think I could. I absolutely have to love people like that with the love of Jesus, as I cannot do it from my own heart. The only way I can do it is to remember He died for them also.

    I have to pray for the strength of God to forgive them. I do not do it immediately either. I know in time I will. Thanks for the post to remind me, I have to. God Bless, SR

    1. Hello SR! Thanks so much for commenting. The world is in a sad state, and it bothers me. I am disgusted with all the senseless killing of women and children. And to make matters worst the perpetrators of these despicable crimes think their actions are for a worthy cause. Sometimes I get so riled up that I have to remind myself that vengeance is the Lord’s. Now, instead of getting riled up, I pray that God will intervene, and send another Joshua.

      Thanks again SR. Pray for me while I do the same for you.
