Is World Peace Possible?

Updated on February 10, 2014

Greg has many opinions when it comes to politics and education. He has no qualms with voicing his opinion..

A question was asked in that section of Hubpages by MYWIKISTEP. They asked if we believe in world peace.

At first I cleared my throat as if I was about to give a speech; I then realized no one was listening.

Really now, when anyone speaks about world peace, is anyone actually listening?

It is my opinion that everyone wants peace, but.....

Lets look at my opinion. Are you listening???

Not Possible

No matter who.

No matter what.

No matter when.

No matter why.

No, world peace is not possible.

Our world is full of greed, malice and anger.

Yes, almost everyone wants world peace, but they want it in their format. Some say yes, we can have world peace if Sharia Law is the judge, jury and executioner. Others say sure, it is feasible if no one believes in God. Still others say it will work only if you follow their brand of worship.

No, it won't work. Groups will never agree to follow one set of guidelines.

Do you think??

Is world peace possible?

The Start

If we want to attain world peace, it seems to me it would have to start at the very lowest level: the home.

If we look at such things as divorce rates, child abuse cases and other such things, do you really think world peace is a possibility?

If there is no peace in the home, how could it ever happen in the world?

How about neighbors?

Do you have peace with all of your neighbors? How about the bar down the road that blares music until 1am? The kid across the street with rap music that is sure to be heard on the moon?

Yea right, world peace is surely possible. (The Frog exclaims with the most sarcastic tone he has ever used.)

Really Now?

With figures such as the above ones, is world peace possible.

World peace doesn't just mean no more wars, it means total peace.

It won't happen!

Well, maybe it will but only when...

Savior

It won't be Oprah.

Not Dr Phil.

Obama won't make it happen.

There is no man alive that can make the world a peaceful place.

There is one who will!

Now before atheists and others start, I must say I am not speaking of any religion. It won't be Baptist, Protestant or Catholic. It won't be Buddhist, or Jehovah's Witness.

World Peace will only come through Jesus Christ. It will not come in following a man made set of doctrines, but will come with a personal relationship with Him.

This is not a debatable subject, because those who don't know Jesus personally just don't and cannot understand. Those who do know Him won't debate this.

I pray that all will come to know Him. This is the only way world peace can and will be attained.

With that, I give you my answer MYWIKISTEP. Yes, I do believe in World Peace. I just know it will not come the way the majority want it to come. It will only come when all accept Jesus as their Lord and follow His guidance.

That is the only way to true peace.

May God's Will be done.

With that, I would that any who wish, come subscribe to this blog that I have. All we need is Faith as big as a mustard seed.

      Truer words were never spoken and well put, I might add! And I would venture to say that world peace won't happen until Jesus comes back to make it happen. Well done and voted up.
