You CANNOT ‘change’ the rules of Chess by moving the figures. By the same token, you CANNOT ‘change’ your world by dealing with worldly issues head-on —> ‘out there’. The only mode of change takes place HERE + NOW, in the MIND, this very second…, this next second…, every (nano-) second thereafter.
Politics, land disputes, battles, fights? They are all for naught. God’s troublesome work takes place in the individual’s mind, for the bible is full of contradictions and paradoxes, since God consists of ALL things, through which the individual is asked to find a single path and stay on it. A true Christian only “hears of” wars, but keeps out of them:
Matthew 24:6- And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Mark 13:7- And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
Romans 12:2- And be not conformed to this world: but
be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind [repentance: a 180-degree turn to opposites],
that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
