Is The World Becoming A Better Place Or Getting Worse?

All of my Christian friends say that the world is getting much worse than it used to be. They say that morality is decreasing and evil is increasing and that we are in the last days before the end. Why is this?

I used to share this pessimistic outlook on life too when i was a Christian, but now i completely disagree and think the world is becoming a much better place to live in than it used to be.

What do you think? Is the world becoming a better place or worse, and how do you justify your opinion?

It really interests me to see people especiately youth like myself who are eager to find answers to questions that matter most in life.I really appreciate the effort Huxley2 made in putting the Bible book of Matthew 24 down.Concerning the Bible author Isaiah46:10 says:'The One telling from the beginning the end and son ancient times the things that has not be done the one saying My own council will stand and anything that is my delight i shall do'Hebrews6:18 tells us that it is impossible for God to lie.So since God himself tells from the beginning the end so what has he said in our time? Please follow of and examine that same Matthew 24.Verse 6 and 7made mention of something consider the millions of lives the two world wars have taken and and what about the earthquakes we face.Have you ever look at statistics and see the number of people has killed?Have you taken time to see the number killed by diseases?What about the outbreak of diseases?Were they rampart back then?Can you compare the numbers?

The world is definately becomeing a better place, people now integrate more with each other, slavery has been abolished, inter racial marriages are taking places. Wars were not fought the way people use to fight during the medieval times, there are now things like war crimes, morality is always evloving and people are less likley do die through violence than during the middle ages. Over all morailty has improved a lot infact animals now have rights in some parts of the world .

I agree, i cant think of any time in history that i would rather be living than now.

Can u imagine what life was like just 50 yeas ago when black people where segregated and not allowed to vote in america. We were deprived of education and seen as dumb, second class citizens and even sub-human.

Now we have a black man as president of america (the most powerful country in the world) and everyone knows that all humans evolved from africa.

100 years ago, all of europe was at war with millions dying. The theory of nuclear energy had not been discovered yet. There was no such thing as human rights and equality.

200 years ago we were slaves and being sold abroad whilst at the same time missionaries were trying to save our 'souls' so that we can have a better life when we die. The theory of electricity had not been discovered yet.

500 years ago the mayans were cutting out people hearts. We had no understanding of the fact that we are living on a planet revolving around a star. Germ theory of medicine had not been discovered. Mortality rates were ridiculously  high.

1000 years ago, virtually every country/ tribe/clan was at war with its neighbour. This was the so-called  'dark ages' when ignorance and superstition was rife.

And it just gets worse the further you go back until you come to the stories documented in the old testament where people were encouraged to massacre their own family and neighbours for not worshipping the same god as them.

So that is the reason why i think the world has become a much better place to live in, and is getting better as people become more understanding and respectful of others regardless of race, sex, culture, and RELIGION.

A better place to live because man is becoming less and less primitive minded and getting more and more evolved.As we get more evolved intellectually and spiritually we create a better world to live in.

In my opinion, I would say worse. I just recently opened a thread on God having mercy on us. Just within only one week, the bad news heard was enough to depress me. Aside the plane crash and fire incident that killed a lot of kids, the murder incidents too, all for nothing. On the news today, we hear mostly bad news than good. News I guess back in the days were rarely heard, now it's normal, mother killing child so she can be free, mother microwaving baby for boyfriend and so much more.

But all in all, we leave everything to God.
