Can we ever really expect World Peace?

Being a Christian, I subscribe to the thinking that true World Peace will only come when Christ returns, as promised in the Holy Bible. Meanwhile, can we learn from his teachings how we should behave, in order to promote more peaceful coexistence until he returns?

Nobody can know when World Peace will happen, and our human limitations seem to be in the way of it happening without some significant 'Divine help'. We must learn to accept others as they are; we must learn to forgive others for their mistakes; we must learn to be willing to "do unto others what we would not mind being done to ourselves". In fact, we must learn (if it is possible) to even love our 'enemies'; for only at that level of love is real peace possible.

Humanity has evolved to a degree in how we treat others; but usually only through "rule of law" and its enforceability of consequences if broken. Only when all humanity has the innate capacity for living under these principles can real peace be expected.

We all want peace, right?  So, let's brainstorm together to learn what we can do...individually and help make some progress in the difficult journey toward that goal.

Promote Peace Through Practicing Peace!

What can I do to promote world peace?  This question is likely on everybody's mind (or at least it SHOULD be!), but there are so many answers that it can get confusing.

Can we all serve in the same ways?  NO!  We must serve in our own ways, whatever those might be, right?  Some people excel in certain areas, and others in other areas; which is a good thing, since we need all kinds of people in this world, don't we?

In my (humble) opinion, the best way to Promote World Peace is simply to Practice Peace.  In other words, if we all just behaved in ways which are known to promote peace and only carried out peaceful interactions with others, the world would automatically be more peaceful. (duh?).

But that's not so simple, really, is it?  What does it mean to "practice peace"?
