Current World Conflicts: Tragic or Evil?

In a recent post Jordan Peterson talked about the difference between Tragedy and Evil?? I would recommend listening to it. To help better understand the difference and why it matters.


Another post that I listened to is from the Bible Made Easy Series of Podcasts: Ep 28 Russia invades Ukraine. It is based on the Biblical principal of being peacemakers.


We are together in this journey of life and for me the big picture for us to comprehend is that, yes, there is evil and tragedy in life, but our all important purpose as individuals is to be peacemakers, in spite of the evil and tragedy.

But a lack of that understanding is surely what Jesus was talking about when he said, "Evil will spread and cause many people to stop loving others." (Or as the original KJV says, "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.") Matthew 24:12.

That was one of the signs we should look for as an indicator of his soon 'Second Coming' (See the Signs of the Times Class)
