just two weeks ago, i worshipped at christ church melaka
where we were still praying for those affected by mh370. it is terrible to hear now of mh17, where the premise is ridiculous enough, and each subsequent news story more preposterous than the one before.
and as much as we live in what Stephen Pinker has termed the ‘Long Peace’, one questions whether world peace is actually within reach. i do dislike bringing religion in, but anyone who has read the prophecies of Daniel before will also know that, biblically speaking, there will be no peace, but increasing tribulation till the second coming of Christ. in light of this knowledge, how is a christian to act and behave, to make the world better, when the world is not likely to get better?
