"The fashion of this world passeth away"

Mankind in general accept the fashion or appearance of the material world without question and then draw their conclusions and make their plans of action accordingly. However, Paul says, "The fashion of this world passeth away."  I Cor, 7:31; And elsewhere he says, "For the things which are seen are temporal: but the things which are not seen are eternal."  II Cor. 4:18; He was clearly aware of a present spiritual reality, a substantive actuality, that existed right where material sense testimony bore witness to a universe made of matter.

Today many earnest thinkers are misled by what they believe to be reality. The material senses tell them that the universe is a great and intricate machine governed by cold, inexorable forces, which can maim or destroy in haphazard disregard of either reason or justice. They become agnostic or atheistic because they cannot reconcile what they seem to see around them with the conception of God as all-powerful Love and intelligence. They ask how, if God exists and is good, He can allow His universe to get into such a mess.
