The True Meaning of Peace
John O. Reid (1930-2016)
Given 21-Sep-94; Sermon #FT94-04; 79 minutes
John Reid, reflecting on the movie "Arnie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss", suggests that it is difficult to find pockets or places of peace on earth today. The world longs for peace- a state of tranquility, freedom from mental anxiety, and cessation from strife. In the World Tomorrow peace will be restored when the remnants of Jacob's family will be re-gathered and the waste places will be rebuilt. Even in an environment of peace, the inhabitants of the World Tomorrow (counseled by their spiritual teachers) will still have to struggle against their human nature. The heart (surcharged by Satan the Devil) is the source of all hatred and conflict. By inculcating (through the help of God's Holy Spirit) God's Laws deep into our inner beings, we acquire peace and reconciliation with our brother, our neighbor, our enemy, and God, emulating our Elder Brother who set the pattern for us.
