As humans we take it for granted that fear of punishment is the only foundation which can maintain social order. But fear, greed, and the desire for power cannot heal the human heart. Many forms of government have been established in order to  usher in a Utopia. All have failed in this endeavor. That is because the human heart is self-centered by nature. Only love has the power to change our hearts. Love awakens love. That is why it is so important to understand God's love as displayed by Jesus on the cross of Calvary.

The powers of darkness have tried to obscure God's love from our sight, with great success. Hundreds of religions attempt to explain the spiritual dimension. All seem to stumble in explaining the immensity of human suffering. In a world where might makes right, human suffering steadily increases. War, genocide, ethnic cleansing, famine, and disease, charge throughout the Earth, propelled by the spiritual darkness that results from a misconception of our heavenly Father.

Indeed, if God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow such vast and intense suffering? This issue has led many to reject God altogether. Only Christianity can satisfactorily answer this question. And then only if it properly explains the sovereignty of God in the light of his all-powerful love and the crucially important concept of human freedom. As you might expect, resolution of God's goodness and the existence of human suffering can only come from a deeper understanding of Jesus' infinite suffering and sacrifice.

Surprisingly, the cross of Calvary also points the  way to unifying the thousands of various Christian denominations. I also believe that Jesus' love can draw followers of all religions into his fold. "Holy Spirit, help us as we examine these issues in the light of the deeper beauty, the glory of Jesus' life and death."
