A New World

At a recent school meeting for the parents of second graders there was much laughter at one youngster's tape-recorded statement, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy a new world." By the looks and nods from the parents it was obvious that most of them concurred.

Indeed, there must be very few if any of us who would not like to see a new world—one free from wars, prejudice, lack, unhappiness, sin, disease, and death. Traditional theology declares that there is such a world, that it is spiritual and is to be experienced after death. On the other hand, most people who look at things from a non-theological viewpoint deny that there is any spiritual life to be attained. They seek to establish harmony right now in this present existence and to do this mainly by material methods.
