    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:13-14) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

    This is why I do not have a lot of faith in the future. War seems to be in our genes. Somewhere along the evolutionary journey, we, as a species, picked up a terrible need for violence and aggression. Maybe it is a survival trait. But with the bombs we have today, it’s suicide. So sad it has to be this way. Now I have read a lot in my life, but the most memorable and poignant thing I have ever heard on this topic is from Bob Dylan in his song Dark Eyes when he says “Oh, time is short and the days are sweet and passion rules the arrow that flies.” I don’t think Shakespeare could have said it better.
