We live in a time when children from an early age are being taught in some nations to hate and kill their enemies. It is a time when threats by rogue nations are made regularly, and the possibility of war is ever-present. The news these days is sometimes scary. More and more people do not want to hear about it, and as a result, the news media is catering to this mentality by providing fluffy nonsense mostly about Hollywood. Of course, we are admonished to watch and be aware.
But, we have hope when we see the crazy news of these confusing time. Jesus Christ told His disciples, "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet." (Matt. 24:6 )
