The majority of people desire and love peace. If the question could be submitted to a vote of the people, there would never be a war. People with honest hearts, who love their fellow men, and who love righteousness and justice, abhor war.

Is that belief logical? What are the evidences for it? Why should we accept the Bible as being God’s Word?

It is nineteen centuries since the great Teacher of truth gave this parting instruction to his little band of disciples: "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy [spirit] : teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you ahvay, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matt. 28:18-20) It is likewise nineteen centuries since the Roman governor asked that same Teacher, "What is truth?" and yet hundreds of millions in so-called "Christendom", of all nationalities, continue to ask the question, "What is truth?" Religion is responsible for the lack of the knowledge of the truth by the common people. The hundreds of religious systems have taken away the "key of knowledge" by teaching religion in place of truth, and as a consequence the people have been prevented from knowing either the sound of the truth or its life-saving value. Hence the urgency of Jesus' command to go forth and teach all nations whatsoever he has commanded becomes more pressing upon those now truly his followers.

Those who pin their hope on the promises of men or even on an organization of nations cannot with assurance say, "we were saved in this hope." Indeed, how could they have a saving hope? For man’s lofty promises for a safe world of tomorrow have failed miserably. If they lean upon their hopes, it will not stand. How could even an organization of the brainiest men be the sponsors of a saving hope when "surely every man at his best estate is altogether vanity"?

The clergy of Christendom fall into two general classes: the fundamentalists and the modernists, or higher critics. They hold different views on the Bible. The fundamentalist takes it all literally; the higher critic takes it all apart. The fundamentalist contaminates it with paganism, by teaching such doctrines as trinity, eternal torment, purgatory, and other beliefs taught by pagans long before Christ. When apostate Christianity became catholic or universal from and after the fourth century it embraced pagan teachings, in order to appeal to pagans and convert them to a nominal Christianity. In a futile effort to avoid conflict with God’s Word, the fundamentalist clergy twist certain texts to fit in with their paganisms, as Peter said: “The meaning of which the untaught and unsteady are twisting, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.” (Matt. 15:6-9; 2 Pet. 3:16) Though claiming to build on Bible truth, fundamentalists found their faith on pagan myth. Their misrepresentations of God and Christ cause many to turn away from the Bible. They thus lend themselves as tools for tearing down faith in God and his Word.

The record regarding Job is not just a little part of a dead, ancient history; it is a true history presenting the life of a character, not allegorical, nor from stories, but only too real. Because apostle Paul does not mention the name of Job at chapter 11 from the book Hebrews, where he is talking about the facts of the faithful men of old, this not means that Job didn’t exist. He wasn’t an Israelite an for this reason, his name wasn’t mentioned in the description of that „cloud of witnesses” which, "through faith... wrought righteousness, obtained promises…from weakness became strong."

What once sounded fantastic now appears a grim possibility. The people viewed the Scriptural warning of an end to this world thus in 1945 after the second atomic bomb burst over Japan. The appalling loss of property and life caused deep concern to earth's inhabitants as man had at last stumbled on something he might not be able to control and so the end of the human race might result. This is but one of many develop-ments from A.D. 1914 onward which have caused sincere, God-fearing people to wonder if we are not living in the "last days" before the destruction of this world. For proof it will be necessary to turn to God's Word and there search the prophecies relating to such a time and see if events of the day fit them.

Despite all the promises and complaints of men, God will do it his way. Do what? Bring in a righteous new world, a world of enduring peace, a world without worry, pain or death.

"A NEW earth!" What can it mean? The burning up of our present planet, and its replacement by a new globe? No, not that; for the sure Word of God declares: "The earth abideth for ever." (Ecclesiastes 1:4; Psalms 78:69; 119:90) But that there will be a new earth is made certain by the Creator's own promise: "Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind." (Isaiah 65:17) If, then, not a new earthly sphere, what is the "new earth"? What conditions will prevail in it, and how and when will it come into existence? Doubtless questions like those fill your mind, as you consider the prospect of a new earth.

In this upside-down, unhappy world it seems to be the general course to take the good things for granted, to drift along the line of least resistance and only when unfortunate circumstances arise, to seek relief by resorting to prayer. Then, if the prayers are not at once answered, the feeling arises that the Lord God has fallen down on the job. Prayers for health, peace and prosperity go unanswered, even when addressed in sincerity to a god believed to be the Almighty. This ought to cause thinking persons to pause and give serious thought to this important matter. Seeking the right way, they ought to ask: How should we pray? To whom should prayer be addressed? Are here any special requirements for imperfect men to reach the Almighty? Indeed, why pray at all?

We must shun the false guides of men and their false religions, babbling psychologists, wordy psychiatrists and polluted politicians, all of which have built up such tremendous reputations as colossal failures. Know God as a guide by his fruits, and accept him because of those fruits. Would you like to be guided as surely as the birds are guided in their migrations? Then make their Guide your Guide. Would you like to be guided into the new world as surely as the stars are guided in their orbits? Then make their Guide your Guide.

One of the vital doctrines clearly taught throughout the Bible is that of the ransom which God provided through Jesus Christ for men who love God and have faith in him.
