Since the beginning of time , the human society has been marred by conflict , which its cause has been as a consequence of the ingenuity of the human mind which reflects in several ways ,such the desire for comfort, greed, negligence to religion . History can attest to this in the several wars that occurred among different human societies and the emergent heroes of such wars. For example in the Trojan war which occurred within the 12th and 13th century Bc, names like Achilles , hector and Odysseus were ubiquitous, hence they were the emergent heroes of the war that lasted twenty years with only one survivor. Then a question arises if the world appreciates these so-called heroes (men who take the lives of others) how then can world peace be instilled.
over time individuals , societies have benefited from the woes of other individuals and societies, not forgetting that the primary objective of man is comfort, hence with achieving a comfortable state being paramount , the peace of other individuals is rather but secondary. This is evident in the innumerable summits world leaders have embarked upon to bring about global peace and freedom, which till this moment have proved to be futile towards restoring the peace and serenity the world clamors for. An example is the opposition which the end to slave trade from merchants who benefited from it, though it was though as inhumanity to man but those gained from it supported it.
Greed , another human character is a major setback to the pursuit of peace the world over. The quest for more , not getting satisfied is a dilemma in the course for peace between man and his neighbors. Of all the inventions and great scientists that existed in the 20th century Albert Einstein was posthumously awarded the epithet ‘man of the century’ for bringing an idea to the production of atomic bombs, in which today happens to be the greatest threat, not only to world peace but to the existence of the human race. where this leads is that those who possess this idea tend to influence the wish of others to satisfy their desires. This is evident in all the bombings, abductions , kidnappings and terrorist attacks taking place the world over. furthermore greed backed by power serves to advocate the concept social Darwinism , ‘might is right’, or rather’”survival of the fittest”.
Negligence to religion happens to be a very disturbing occurrence that threatens world peace. Most religions in the world believe that man should in peace with his neighbor the pacesetters of several religion’s, Jesus Christ (for Christianity), prophet Muhammad(for Islam), and many other religious pacesetters, but humans , who according to Aristotle are “religious animals” do compromise the beliefs and inclinations to the pursuit of ends that are contrary to what their faith is. The many religious wars , that have taken place over are at some occasions against the ethics and values of such religions.
Conclusively , the lack of peace in the world can be attributed to man’s failure to consider the next man, and even some of those who advocate for world peace deep down within their minds would want to compromise for their neighbor, and seems no matter how much advocacy is made on world peace it would only remain an illusion in our minds if every individual do not change his/her ways and see peace as a fundamental aspect of human society, just as conflict is, and most importantly make immense effort towards achieving harmony and peace globally

Poetic farewell to religious certainty
The lyrics teach that the false certainties of evangelical Christianity are as arid as shrill, negative materialism Since Einstein developed his theory of relativity , and Rutherford and Bohr revolutionised physics, our picture of the world has radically changed. Yet no poet, to my knowledge, in any European language, has really explored the implications of all this for the way in which we view … Read more on Guardian Unlimited
We live in a desperate world and in a desperate time. Peace in our lifetime seems elusive in a world full of wars, strife, and murders. There is never a day that passes by where we do not hear news of sufferings around the world.
Peace According to the World
According to the world, peace means no more wars, killing or destruction of human life, wildlife and the environment.Many StressFreeFast.com” rel=”StressFreeFast.com”>stressed out worldly Christians are now involved in yoga,meditation,fortune telling, transcendental and many other eastern mysticism practices in their quest to find peace. Classes for such activities are mushrooming all over the big cities across Asia,America and Europe.
Tests conducted on patients given placebo by their doctors on their supposedly health benefits do report positive results from these patients later.It do shows the effects of perception on helping to improve one’s state of mind. One’s improved state of mind do help to improve one’s health. So if we think that practicing yoga or meditation helps us to achieve inner peace, its likely to be so for our mind are already positively accepting that conclusion. If we think that praying will not provide the same effect, it won.t, for our minds are already negative to it.
So while the yoga and meditation classes may perhaps bring the so called inner peace to us, we must seriously consider their destructive effects to our own salvation. They seem harmless at first but many of these activities requires meditation. Unless the yoga or meditation classes teaches us to meditate specifically on something, that something has to be Jesus Christ and not something else, if its nothing, then that nothing will be filled by demons for demons seek an empty host. These activities will open the door for demons to enter into us and lead us to a curse which will ultimately destroy our faith in God and rob us of the true peace we would have otherwise enjoyed with God.
World Peace According To The Bible
World Peace is not dependent on the United Nations or any One World Unity or whatever peace movements touted by many leaders today. Human government never will be able to solve the world’s problems. There never will be true peace until the Prince of Peace establishes His Millennial Kingdom. Peace on earth will only come when every man is transformed by the power of God through the Sons of Peace. It is when “the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains” that the prophetic mysteries spoken by the prophet shall unfold before our wondering eyes and He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they (the nations) shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore” (Isa. 2:2-4).
What is Eternal Peace
Real peace is not temporary happiness that depends upon good things happening in our lives. Real peace is not the absence of conflicts or problems in our lives ! The peace of God is unaffected by any external conditions. If your peace crumbles in the face of troubles, what you have is not peace – it is merely a sense of comfort or security that you may have in the hope that nothing changed or disturb the status quo of your peace.
Romans 14:17 – For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
God Has Already Given Us Peace
John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
