In today's day and age, we have the rise of terrorism, rumors of wars, starvation, disease outbreak and so much more. This draws out a question on people's mind: WHY?
Bible Teacher Joe Amaral gives a simple answer: It is because our hearts are genetically inclined to do evil due to the greed that is in our hearts.
If we really take the bible to heart and did what it said, if we truly loved our neighbors as we love ourselves, if we loved God with all our heart, strength and mind, it will change the way that we see people. It will change the way we interact with people.
The bottom line is that we are sinful people who are living in a sinful and fallen world.
Yet, we are not without HOPE. We are not a ship at sea with no directions.
We have an anchor, we have a lighthouse, we have a direction.
That direction only comes when we put our complete faith and trust in Jesus.
Because of Jesus, there is good in the world too. God has placed us here on earth to be that light in the midst of the darkness.
