It was with great expectations that a global organization of sovereign independent states, the United Nations Organization, was established on October 24, 1945 “to save the future generations from the scourge of war by promoting International peace and security”. But has the formation of the United Nations provided the solution to the problems of man? In a special article on the 70th anniversary of the United Nations, which was observed in 2015, the Telegraph, a British newspaper, in its on-line edition of September 15, 2015, stated that despite some successes the United Nations could be credited with, “many institutions like the Security Council are reactionary, and very easily caught up in power politics, rendering them useless at critical moments”. Moreover, The Guardian (of London), writing on the UN in its publication of Thursday 10th March 2016, said the “disturbing truth is that the world's primary institution to deal with war (the UN) is not working.” The newspaper added, “If we're not careful, the UN will collapse into irrelevance, much as the League of Nations did in its day”. One cannot agree more with this timely warning.
The truth is that everyone must learn to exercise faith in God Almighty, the God of gods and Lord of lords by way of doing His will so that He would have mercy on us and heal the land. St. Paul says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” - Hebrews 11:6.
