The world has changed since the time of the old and is still evolving rapidly.
God still works mysteriously in and around the world to effect His infallible words and purpose.
The believers are affected in many ways. Unfortunately, there is little choice.
The believers are affected not because God is not with them or for them but because the world is against them in many ways.
However, the significance of how desperately wicked the heart of man cannot be over-emphasized.
The causal effects of many evil happenings in the world are not because God is incapable of doing anything. Instead, it is because man is constantly wreaking havoc ever since creation.
