Collapse of Old world Order and   

Establishment of Kingdom of God on earth.

Do the ancient  religions have the answer?

The world today is held together by a fragile materialism, lacking the spiritual bonds of earlier societies.   Godlessness and lawlessness prevail in the absence of strong moral authority.   Religion, once the unifying force in earlier civilizations, has been clouded by division and strife.  Christianity is no exception.

Jesus commanded people to love one another.  He said that His disciples would be recognized by the love they show to each other.  Yet Christian history is full of conflicts.  The clergy added man-made ideas to the beautiful teachings of Jesus.

These caused divisions to arise rather than promoting the unity of humankind.  As a result, the true spiritual teachings of Jesus were ignored and the original power of the healing message of Jesus was lost.

Many people attend their church as a social convention with an unbelieving heart.  Others reject religion because they see what is preached is not always practiced.

This state of religion was foretold by Jesus who said:  "However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth ? " (Luke 18:8).

The same is true with other religions.  Indeed the religions of the past have lost their former power.  They are sometimes corrupted.  Fanaticism and fundamentalism prevail instead of peace and unity.  They no longer offer good spiritual fruits to humankind.  How can Christians and others return to the path of Truth?

The Kingdom of God on Earth
For 2000 years Christians have been saying the only prayer which Jesus left them; "...Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven". sun5.jpg (30142 bytes)

What would this earth be like if it was like heaven?  It would be full of peace and happiness because people would be following the will of God.

Social conditions don't seem to be getting better but worse in many countries.  

In the first world countries people are suffering from unemployment, depression, addiction, corruption, organized crime, high rate of divorce and none existing of family ties, and in the third world countries people are poor, hungry and sick.( In Africa 30% are HIV positive and dying by masses.)

That such a time would come, has been foretold in the Bible:

"There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money ... disobedient to their parents ... unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God" (2 Timothy 3:2-5 NIV).

We all want peace. But we can only be happy if we first have peace within ourselves.   Thereafter we need peace in the family, peace in the village, peace in the country and finally peace for the whole world.
