Pope Warns: World at War!

Comment on this article

On a trip to Poland, “Pope Francis has warned that a recent wave of jihadist attacks in Europe is proof that ‘the world is at war’” (BBC, July 27, 2016). “Not a war of religion. There is a war of interests. There is a war for money. There is a war for natural resources. There is a war for domination of peoples. This is the war. The word that is being repeated often is insecurity, but the real word is war” (Euronews, July 27, 2016).

Long ago, Jesus Christ warned that one of the signs of the end of the age would be “wars and rumors of wars” and many, including the pope, recognize the world has entered a dangerous new era. While politicians pass laws to promote peace and economic growth, the Bible states that the real cause for war and fighting is selfishness, greed and the “get” way of life that permeates the world (James 4:1-3). What many today don’t realize today is that Jesus Christ is going to return and usher in a new era built on the way of “give” and His Ten Commandments (Isaiah 9:6-7) and He will show the world the way to peace (Isaiah 2:2-4).
