What The World's Major Problem Is

It's indeed sad (and very discouraging) to read of the fact that millions of people from around the world come to visit porn sites each month (one site boasts of over four billion page views per month - source), whereas my Bible study blog site is presently receiving less than twelve thousand page views per month.

Thus, it is not difficult to see what the world's major problem is (1 John 2:16; 1 John 5:19; James 4:1-4 NLT). But, for every problem that humans face, God's inspired book, the Bible, provides us with a solution.

The inspired writer James writes in James 4:5-10 (NLT):

"Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to him. And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor."

The question is, will the world give heed to the solution?
