The Archbishop of Canterbury has warned us that God is not going to intervene and save mankind from its own stupidity as we head towards our own destruction.
Well he is partly right in that God isn’t going to stop us from all but destroying each other and the planet, but what Dr. Rowan Williams has failed to grasp is that there will be a happy ending for all of God believers, for when Israel is overturned once more he will send Jesus back to the Earth to establish his Kingdom and put things right.

It’s too early to say for sure, but the uncertainty seems to be reminding people that trusting in earthly treasures is foolish and the only true path to happiness is through Jesus.
