GOD sometimes makes sin to be its own punishment, and there needs no more to make men miserable than to give them up to their own vile appetites and passions. – Matthew Henry
The nuts and bolts of the daily Christian life is a simple and straightforward state of affairs: being at peace with GOD and at war with sin.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, Romans 5:1
All in all, after everything has been examined and argued, dissected and debated – whether in matters of war and peace, religion and politics, gender and race, crime and justice, health and education, economy and environment, marriage and family, pride and prejudice, gossip and greed, arrogance and ignorance – it all boils down to this one thing: we have a sin problem with a JESUS solution. So until we get this right, and until He returns to make everything right again, we will continue to live in this world of hurt.
