Peace: The Hope of Humanism

“Swords into Plows”

“Sculpted by EvgeniyVuchetich to represent the human wish to end all wars by converting the weapons of death and destruction into peaceful and productive tools that are more beneficial to mankind.”

Secular Humanism: “The End of War”

“Applying the scientific method to war leads Horgan to a radical conclusion: biologically speaking, we are just as likely to be peaceful as violent.”

“War is not preordained, and furthermore, it should be thought of as a solvable, scientific problem—like curing cancer.

But war and cancer differ in at least one crucial way: whereas cancer is a stubborn aspect of nature, war is our creation. It's our choice whether to unmake it or not

secular humanism the end of war1
Secular Humanism: “The End of War”

Evidence:

  • 1st Half 20th C was far more violent than the 2nd Half.
  • “The signs are good right now – this kind of violence is decreasing.”
  • “Sweden and Switzerland have both renounced war.”
  • “There’s no good reason that explains why we fight.”

While they are saying, "Peace and safety!" then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3

Jesus

Old Testament Prophets

I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. … Joel 2:30-31

He continued by saying to them, "Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom” Luke 21:10

“There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” Luke 21:25-27

Then they will see the son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory Lk. 21:25-26

And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved Joel 2:31

“…the days will come in which there will not be left one stone upon another which will not be torn down." Luke 21:6

I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. Zechariah 12:2

For on that day I will begin to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:9

And the word of the LORD came to me saying, "Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal. "I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords; Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer with all its troops; Beth-togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops—many peoples with you.

"After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them. Ezekiel 38:8

“You will say, 'I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will go against those who are at rest, that live securely, all of them living without walls and having no bars or gates.”

Ezekiel 38:11

Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth. Zechariah 14:12

to capture spoil and to seize plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited, and against the people who are gathered from the nations, who have acquired cattle and goods, who live at the center of the world.' Ezekiel 38:12

Russia

“And I will make a vast graveyard for Gog and his hordes in the Valley of the Travelers, east of the Dead Sea…It will take seven months for the people of Israel to bury the bodies and cleanse the land. Ezekiel 39:11-12

But this is what the Sovereign LORD says: When Gog invades the land of Israel, my fury will boil over! In my jealousy and blazing anger, I promise a mighty shaking in the land of Israel on that day. Ezekiel 38:18-19

"They will set apart men who will constantly pass through the land, burying those who were passing through, even those left on the surface of the ground, in order to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search…and anyone who sees a man's bone, then he will set up a marker by it until the buriers have buried it. Ezekiel 39:14-15

Wail, for the day of the LORD is near! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. All hands will fall limp, And every man's heart will melt.
