If aliens from another planter were to visit planet Earth [no I don’t believe in extraterrestrial beings] what conclusions would they have? If they listened to our news broadcasts or watched how humans interact with each other; they would have to say we are an angry, violent planet. In 1951 there was a movie produced called, The Day the earth stood still. The movie was about an alien who belonged to an organization for the mutual protection of all planets and for the complete elimination of aggression.
Here is a quote from the movie (remember this is 1951) “… I came here to give you these facts. It is no concern of ours how you run your own planet, but if you threaten to extend your violence, this Earth of yours will be reduced to a burned-out cinder. Your choice is simple: join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer. The decision rests with you.”
Though this is of course fiction, the fact remains we have the choice to live in peace or we will destroy ourselves. The Bible tells us that there will never be ultimate peace until Jesus Christ returns to earth and sets up His Kingdom.BUT we can have peace within ourselves now because Jesus promised us peace even in the midst of these terrible times. “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.” John 14:27
