“all’s right with the world.”

Robert Browning wrote “God’s in His Heaven, all’s right with the world.” Many think that’s insane. “There is no God and nothing is right with the world.”

How can it be true that “all’s right with the world.” when there are huge problems?

1. We spend more per student than ever, but kids can barely read, write, or do arithmetic.

2. More money is spent on the environment than ever, but the problems increasingly seem to be imaginary.

3. We elect officials who accumulate millions of dollars while being paid comparatively low salaries.

4. Legal systems have become increasingly corrupted by bribes and special interests.

5. Taxes keep going up, but not the quality of life.

6. Democracies are increasingly vulnerable to voter fraud that’s impossible to fix.

7. It seems impossible to stop abortion, invasion by brutal enemies, pornography, and sin of every kind.

We now have governments where everyone is free to steal from their neighbors. And, they get to tell lies to justify their theft. How can anyone believe that “all’s right with the world.”?

With an effort so efficient that it must be Divine, God has set up a world in which “The Garden is self-weeding”.

Truly, God has written and downloaded The Creation Program most wonderfully. Some choose to believe in, and obey, God. Those who obey most fully will follow even the “hard parts” of Jesus’ instructions. They choose to heed “If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood, you do not have life in you.”

The obedient must then obey Jesus in choosing their church. His instruction on that most important decision is clear to every properly humble mind: “Thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I give you The Keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.”
Once in His Church, we see. Some become wheat, others throw themselves on the burn pile. We realize: “God’s in His Heaven, all’s right with the world.”
Amid the raging turmoil, we see our neighbors make their choices. The obedient become wheat. Others throw themselves on the burn pile.

We realize: “God’s in His Heaven”. We see that ” all’s right with the world.”
