Will human free will leaders’ choices result in the Apocalypse or…….?

The Chicago Tribune Opinion article titled: Biden should revive the Iran nuclear deal, reported the writer’s opinion of the conundrum of the question whether it is wise or foolish for every Nation to either develop a nuclear bomb or join in with a group of Nations agreement to defend each other in the event of what is now occurring in Ukraine.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom verse, and a Bible verse to this conundrum. A conundrum which is basically a repetition of the history of the folly of war.

Also, religious beliefs about humans having free will choices in relation to the ancient prophesy in the Bible Chapter of Revelation religious beliefs of a coming n Apocalypse.

Or in what in our contemporary times is being tracked by the Nuclear Clock ticking on has minutes left.

King Solomon

“A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” (Ecclesiastes 3:8)

Since no one knows the future, who can tell someone else what is to come? (Ecclesiastes 8:7)

Bible Verse

“For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of man. . .. Immediately after the tribulations of these days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken; then will appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven” (Matt. 24:27-30).

What’s My Point?

If we discern the history of humans record of wars that have occurred for various reasons as a result of a free will decision by humans that promoted hatred between Nations and cultures that led to deaths and destruction of property that last for generations instead of love and peace.

Which leads to the conundrum in our contemporty times history to discern what every Nation needs to decide to either develop or give up possession of nuclear weapon.

For example, Ukraine gave up their nuclear weapons and did not join in a mutual defense agreement with a Nation in possession of a nuclear weapon.

And every Nation, in our contemporary times that wound up being invaded, or overthrown over time. For example, Korea, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Crimea, and now Ukraine, none of these Nations invaded had nuclear weapons.

My point is that the writer’s opinion for Iran to delay their present quest to develop a nuclear weapon, is a meaningless. That is because if Iran discerns wat is now occurring in Ukraine because they gave up their nuclear weapons, and the USA gave them a promise that if they did so they would guarantee their safety has resulted.to checkmate the USA from fulfilling their guarantee in fear of a nuclear war developing between Russia and the USA.

In My Opinion,

The USA fears that Iran, a Nation promoting Islamic beliefs and support of terrorism obtains a nuclear weapon, somehow a terrorist will either use the weapon in the future because of the Islamic belief that if they die defending their religious beliefs, they will be rewarded in heaven.

Which brings up the conundrum of religious belief of Free Will vs a Nuclear Apocalypse in the future and the wisdom of king Solomon claim that no one is wise enough to predict the future.

What we do know from history of wars is every war could have been avoided if we humans had a religious belief that it is a sin to break the Ten Commandments which include not to kill or covet.

And if Nation leaders on both sides in any war possessed the Visionary of the Ten Types of Leaders, was based on the obedience to the religious Ten Commandments, the world would be a better place that what is occurring in the news today.

You Decide

Is free will to engage in evil more likely to promote war and hate in humans than e humans to hate than love and peace?

Does it matter anymore in the future if a Nation has in their possession Nuclear Weapon capability, whether their political ideology of the Ten types of Government Leaderships in the Source Links below.

Is the belief that the USA should make another agreement with Iran who knows Israel has nuclear bomb capacity really going to result in anything meaningful in the future of our Universe?

Or should every Nation without nuclear weapon capacity choose to join in with mutual defense agreements with a Nation hey trust and has nuclear capabilities a wiser path to checkmate in the game of war now occurring now in Ukraine?
