A Time of Promise

Despite material appearances, humanity today is witnessing a wonderful opportunity for progress. The promise of great good may seem caught deep in the throes of upheaval, but evil is being forced to the surface to be seen, handled, and annihilated.

Evil's greatest hope for continuing its disruption lies in being able to remain hidden. If it can only be let alone, its unseen machinations can continue. Its diabolical work may appear to increase. But it is self-destroyed, for evil's only power is to destroy itself. Hastening toward its doom, however, it appears to take on such formidable proportions that mankind tends to shrink in awe before it or react with rebellious extremes against it. But evil, once uncovered, will be destroyed, and in its place good will be seen, for the eternality of good is a fact of real being.

Throughout all human history this has been so. Empires have risen and fallen. In many instances the immediate wrongs they brought on have vanished, and the good has remained to influence institutions and governments. Caesar is gone, but the influence of Roman law remains. Throughout time mankind have progressed, and the level of human consciousness has risen.
