Sorry to be long in replying my Christian brother, just finished work. I think they are realistic practical sentiments to keep us well and thriving. You know before I became a Christian, I was a negative thinking time bomb and didn't really trust or consider people too much. I tried the irobot mentality denying any divine interventions, but physics or science doesn't explain imperfect robotic frustrations. Only Lord Jesus can explain the human psyche really well in my opinion. I learnt the virtue of valuing human life through Lord Jesus, not science or physics, or from any human being I've ever known. I've always loved science and physics, they are innovative topics that help us understand our environment and improve our tools for our physical activities. I don't have a problem with people who call themselves atheists, because every group has the good apples and the bad ones, even Christians. So basically I don't discriminate in the beliefs or religious context. There are some beautiful decent human beings who call themselves atheists, so I don't have a problem with them. But its funny that they do like talking to us Christians, maybe its because of Christmas? or they do admire the morality of our Lord? I try to be respectful and easy-going as I can because I know that I'm representing Lord Jesus, so I better not behave in an ugly way. But there has been a time when I did lose my cool with someone on A2K, i put that person on ignore because they were really disrespectful. I need someone like Lord Jesus to remind me on how it is to behave like a human being otherwise I'll forget, especially from all the painful realities life throws at us. This world can turn an angelic human being into a demon, just from all the stress and frustrations of this world. Ok, I won't keep blabbering away here, but your question about Armageddon being part of the establishment of peace. Well I think we have to deal with the Armageddon within ourselves or our minds, if we can do that then we can deal with any Armageddons outside of ourselves. I'm taking it one day at a time and hope for the best in the spirit of our Lord Jesus from God.
