Blog / Still on the peace thing

Someone wrote me to say that if the whole world were to experience peace, it'd be boring.
What I said was, do all the good you can, all the time and to everyone you can. Of course, we've got those who have quite literally sold their souls to the devil. I certainly hope that you, my readers are not one of them. Now, we're going back to an ancient book compiled 1500 years ago. It's called the bible- from the Greek word "biblos", meaning "the book"
It tells you how this world can really achieve peace... but of course, fatalists would have none of that- they'd rather suppress something that went against their misguided beliefs.
A man called Jesus Christ died 2008 years ago, crucified the way the worst criminals were executed in the roman empire. And guess what? He was innocent! Of course that isn't fair... but that's the whole point. he SACRIFICED his life so that the sins of the generations both alive and unborn would be forgiven.
If one man could give his life for people that probably wouldn't appreciate it, how about you doing something as simple as obeying a traffic light? IT's for your own benefit anyway! How 'bout you giving away the extra bucks you could do without? That poor homeless guy on your street corner? (he won't run to the liquor store and he won't continue begging. He's still there because we've refused to help him)
The sweet thing about Jesus is that he didn't just die but he arose, capturing the power of death in his holy grip. He holds the elixir to perpetual existence (living forever) So who says you can't live forever? bah! don't only learn from/about Jesus, copy his life!
