The United Nations is promoting the concept of “global citizenship.” Goals include encouraging international cooperation, respecting human rights, and protecting our planet. The reason? As expressed by Maher Nasser in the UN Chronicle, “climate change, organized crime, rising inequalities, unresolved conflicts, mass displacement of people, global terrorism, infectious diseases, and similar threats do not recognize . . . borders.”

Others have gone even further, advocating a world government. They include the Italian philosopher, poet, and statesman Dante (1265-1321) and the physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955). Dante believed that peace could not last in a politically divided world. A “kingdom divided against itself comes to ruin,” he said, quoting Jesus Christ.​—Luke 11:17.

The Bible frankly acknowledges that some people will simply refuse to change for the better. The wicked will continue to “act wickedly,” says Daniel 12:10. Does that reality doom our prospects for lasting peace and safety?

If the future were just in human hands, our prospects would be grim indeed. But as we will see, that is not the case. In fact, the opposite is true​—our future can be very bright!….
