I think the biggest obstical to "world peace" is religion. If an invasion were to clearly undermine the major religions of the world, we might have
a shot a decent span of peace time in the aftermath. Unfortunately religions are also the greatest source of denial in the human species and thus, the
underpinnings of these belief systems is impossible to "disprove" as "faith" can be invoked to counter literally anything.
The truth is that religion doesn't even rank in the top three causes of war, so just where does your opinion come from? If I tell you it comes from
the same source that is busy convincing the descendants of Christians that extraterrestrials exist but that the God of their forefathers doesn't
exist, would it sink in? As you look at the US today - prisons bursting, murders, rapes, children abducted, millions hooked on drugs, millions
fighting for rights to murder babies, teenage suicide, broken families resulting from a myriad of addictions, etc, can you not truthfully see that
these ills are the result of a population that has been fooled into ignoring the rotten fruits of their collective morality? It's as the Holy Spirit
confirms - many will come to love evil as "good" and actually fight for it.
The youth have been indoctrinated to believe that tolerance equals love, and yet, they cannot recognise that this form of love is false and is
directly responsible for collective morality spiralling ever downward. Why? Because it requires one to accept other's wicked behaviours as
'acceptable'. For example, you may abhor pedophilia, yet thousands are pushing to not only redefine pedophilia as a 'sexual practice', but to
remove age limits for consent. Without any higher morality, and with love defined as tolerance, those in charge will push you to accept and tolerate
it. This false definition of love is how those in charge of this world are trying to unite you with the little tribe in tinbucktwo that may sacrifice
its babies on an alter....you have 'no right' to condemn such a practice because that view is 'intolerant'.
It is clear that a society that shares common moral principles are the most peaceful, yet somebody has convinced you that this isn't the case. Yes,
there have been, and are, cases whereby religion attempts to force it's control through physical methods such as beheading, but I'd say again, is
the fruit not rotten in that case? The OP's vision of "world peace" is nice sounding words, but as the Bible easily proves, it is a house built on
sandy foundations - untruths. Mankind, absent the God of Truth, has barbaric tendencies that manifest themselves in the worst ways. Mankind, absent
the God of Truth, judges their own behaviour based on society instead of a higher authority - man thinks "I'm a good person" compared to that kid
next door who murdered somebody, yet hypocritically ignores the very fact that he himself steals, had an abortion and disrespects his parents. In ten
years time, it will be "I'm a good person" compared to that kid next door who gunned down fifty people, yet he himself only killed one. If people
honestly thought about, they'd take this simple observation as fact, but they ignore it because there is no love of truth in them and because they
learned to love lies more. And for this very reason, the prince of this world is succeeding in attacking the minds of youth to foolishly take up his
cause, and this is how Satan raises his armies to fight Christ Jesus. How utterly tragic the consequences are of rejecting Truth - God - for a pack of
lies and indoctrination coming from the very camp of Satan who produce every bit of brain-numbing propaganda that you ingest on a daily basis. But, as
scriptures declare, eating the doctrines of demons produces these results. And produces an entire generation to believe that only Christians have it
'wrong' whilst completely believing themselves to be free of any doctrines - when in actuality, they have the mark of the beast on their forehead or
hand because their MIND and ACTIONS are already aligned to his world.
