Something Wrong with the World?

I watched a YouTube video that contained a couple of sentences reflecting ignorance of the world. The quote was something like:

“For a long time now you’ve had this feeling something’s wrong with the world, but you don’t know what it is…”

Well, guess what? There is indeed something wrong with the world. And you don’t have to wonder what it is. Any born again believer in Christ who has read their Bible understands what it is.

For one thing, Man’s nature is depraved. (See Jeremiah 17:9-10.) There’s not some divine spark of goodness in each of us at birth. So, yes, people have the capacity to behave badly. And they often do.

But it goes beyond that.

Do you know who our sovereign Lord is letting control our world’s system for the time being? If you know the answer to that question, then you have an explanation for much that’s happening today.

Luke 4:5-8
5. And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
7. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
8. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Ephesians 6:10-12
10. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
