Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

I am writing to share an encouraging message about the future. Many have lost hope that we will ever see a world without violence and war, but the Bible promises just that. At Psalm 37:9-11 the Bible promises, “evil men will be done away with … Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more. You will look at where they were, and they will not be there. But the meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.”

Many agree that the only hope for a peaceful world depends on God.

We have an issue of the Watchtower that discusses the theme, “A Better World Is Near”. In a series of articles it explains how God will accomplish his promise of a better world, and it helps to prove that time is fast approaching.

If you would like a copy, I would be happy to send one. There is no cost and no obligation. If you have access to the internet you can also find this issue of the Watchtower on our official website, On the homepage, just type “Better World” in the search bar at the top and it will take you straight to the issue.


Our website is a free resource with articles, videos, and a free online self guided Bible study course that millions visit every day. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out.

If you have any questions, you’re welcome to contact me.
