Violence erupts like growing cancer on the surface of our planet.

“Why doesn’t God come down and save us from the misery that millions are experiencing?”

When is it enough?

This question was hurled at me during my “X” Zone Radio interview with Rob McConnell a few years ago. After some inspired thought, I came up with the answer.

To fix the problem God has to fix us! We are the problem. Our arrogance and greed surge up through the cracks of the geopolitical divisions of our planet. Violence is the volcano spewing out at the pressure points. The real problem comes from our insidious greed for power, a gangrene of our own making.

So we’ve asked God for help but we’re not listening to Him. He offered to help a long time ago. He sent prophets and great messengers to all the different faiths. He’s tried to teach us kindness, gentleness, respect, love toward your neighbor, care for the planet, honor to God; we can even all agree on these moral principles.

They’re the celestial standards required to bring heaven onto earth. An alliance to form a kingdom has already been presented to us to create peace for all humanity. It’s real, it’s there, standing at our threshold.

“But nobody’s going to tell us what to do”, we say with belligerence. We’re like spiritual toddlers petulantly pushing God’s instructions aside and saying, “No, I want to do it myself.” Like teenagers, we think we have all the answers. We act like spoiled children in the western world, and bullies on the playground of our planet. In our immaturity, we believe we can get paradise for ourselves without the responsibility of being good citizens on the planet. We choose for ourselves what’s right and wrong. Or worse, we decide there is no right and wrong. – Well, it isn’t working.

So yes, God is waiting. I guess He could kill us all off and let the animals roam free. But no, God loves us; He just hates how we act. He’s waiting for us to accept the conditions in the alliance he proposed and to play the Game of Life by his rules. He’s waiting for us to take his advice, use his laws and learn how to love each other.

After all, God designed us to be gods on Earth– and that’s what we can be IF we will just hurry…and spiritually – grow up.
