A. W. Tozer discusses the end of the world, the end of civilization, the difference between the two, and why so many accuse Jesus of failing to keep a promise of world peace. â€œThey create a Christianity of their own, and then they try to make Christ conform to their own, homemade Christianity. â€¦ It may surprise some of you to know that our Lord Jesus Christ never promised peaceâ€”world peace, peace among the nationsâ€”during this age.â€ Christians shouldnâ€™t blame the church, either. The pastor addresses a range of other vital issues in this excellent sermon, reading from Job 23:6, Psalm 85:8, and Matthew 24:4-14. â€œThe New Year As God Sees Itâ€ was preached the night of New Yearâ€™s Eve, 1961, in Toronto, Ontario. The length of the recording is 41 minutes and 7 seconds.
