    But, the Bible often says, and shows, just the opposite.

    Yes, we are familiar with the scriptures, but it also says to watch and pray.

    All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

    On the righteousness level this is very true. Human character is respected by all. Courage, honesty, gentleness, patience...etc.

    It is authority that people rebel against. So they rebel against holiness and light....which exposes their darkness. No one who loves darkness likes being exposed by the light.

    Prayer and the Scriptures are indeed the elements in which the believer is expected to live.

    I think this is true on a national level. God rewarded peace to repentant Israel. And visited them with war for their disobedience.

    But Christians have tribulation as their lot in life. As God brings forth the image of Christ in us through the crucible of affliction.

    Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

    Good point. Isaiah 48.10 says: "I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction".
