We live in the same 'present evil world' that the Apostle Paul mentioned in Galatians 1:4. It's not going to change. Men and women have chosen to use their free will for themselves, placing themselves on the throne and disregarding their Creator. And because of this, we have been going down one dead end road after another seeking for wants to give you a 'life worth living'. And all of this starts with having your sins forgiven and getting right with God. Only then will you have the correct perspective to view life from God's angle - the vantage point of His marvellous grace.
