New and Unlikely Friends by teamquavers New and Unlikely Friends by teamquavers
This is inspired by the lovely text from Isaiah 11:6-9

"And the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the young goat,
And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little boy will lead them.
Also the cow and the bear will graze,
Their young will lie down together,
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.
They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea."

It's about what the world will look like when Jesus' millennial reign begins; the curse that Adam's sin brought upon the world will end and there will be peace where there was formerly violence and animosity. I look forward to Jesus' return and reign in this world, and the end of evil.

Well despite being an Atheist this is one verse from the Bible that I like, but instead of waiting for someone else to do this, I believe we ourselves should start being peaceful and treat each other as equals right now, and with the rise of artificial meat in the next couple of decades, we might even begin to help animals be peaceful, finally ending the 4 billion year long killing spree that's defined life on Earth for nearly every species until now (or 6000 year long depending on your worldview).

Thanks for your reply ^.^ We should absolutely be respectful to each other and be selfless in regards to others' needs. But I believe mankind will never perfect this on his own, which is why I also believe this state of perfect peace can't exist until Jesus sets up His kingdom on earth.

We can't just sit here and do nothing though. What if Jesus never comes and life is miserable for all eternity? We have to take action into our own hands, I mean if we do act, we either get peace from ourselves or peace from Jesus. If we don't act and just hope, we might never see peace in this universe.

I use the same logic with Quilavas. Sure there could be another universe with Quilavas, but I'm not just going to believe that exists without solid proof and just sit here. I need to work to make Quilavas real, to be absolutely sure, I can't just sit and hope.

From most of the things Jesus said, he actually wanted humanity to take things into our own hands. Sure he could come and save us from everything, but it'd be much more dignified if we did at least some of the work ourselves. The 11th commandment is a prime example of this, Jesus didn't say "wait for me to come and then love one another", he wanted us to start right now. Well right now 2,000 years ago, but that hasn't happened, so now would be as good a time to start as any.

Yes, in the meantime we must still love others and do good for one another when possible, but I know I'm still going to fail a lot and give into my own selfish ambitions from time to time (which is really frustrating!). It's a combination of action, and waiting.
