I have in mind the biblical depiction of the golden age to be realized in this world. Peace, the knowledge of God and immortality. This is the vision of the Hebrew prophets. But due to the vice and lawlessness of Man and the evil in his heart, this vision is far from becoming a reality. Now if only human beings used their God-given gifts to eradicate war, to pursue justice and to eliminate all the diseases that render human beings susceptible to death we would already be living in such a beautiful world. One where we would thank God for giving us the potential of making it come true.

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." -Manuel II Paleologus

Jeez goldstate, you aren't already convinced that man is endowed with the potential to accomplish everything you mentioned in your comments? Man is fallen man, but God has not left him alone or helpless in this world.

We are susceptible to death for a reason, and death is where each of us is headed. Death to the living is, as birth to the unborn, another step in the journey of man to the presence of him who is called the Father.

Eradicating war in a world where evil men use war against good men and nations, seems to me under the circumstances to be a futile and rather dangerous goal. There is no sane person who gains pleasure from fighting others, however, it is the height of folly to be anti war in the sense that present anti war folks see it.
