II Timothy 1:6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of Yahweh which is in you by the putting on of my hands.

Isaiah 1:5 Why should ye be stricken any more? You will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart is faint.

Please see the paragraph that begins: Their research has also found that despite conventional wisdom which says, once you eliminate poverty, racism, and ignorance, wars should decrease; but, the richer and more Democratic countries are, and ends by saying – Their problems are always moral and spiritual. I will leave you with these last words, “The world is the way it is because of Sin.” Their research has also found that despite conventional wisdom which says, once you eliminate poverty, racism, and ignorance, wars should decrease; but, the richer and more Democratic countries are, the more they seem to have fewer incentives to make wars and are more constrained from doing so.

Democracy and prosperity cannot produce good character and moral values any more than foolish politicians think they can legislate good character. Their problems are always moral and spiritual.
I will leave you with these words:
“The world is the way it is because of Sin”!
Sin is the transgression of Elohim’s law.

Jeremiah 8:8 How can you say, We are wise and we have the written law of the Master (and are learned in its language and teachings)? Behold the truth is, the lying pen of the scribes has made of the law a falsehood (a mere code of ceremonial observances).
Deuteronomy 4:2 Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it, so as to guard the commands of Elohim which I am commanding you.
