Hope, God's Offer to All Mankind is the same message that God spoke to Adam and Eve in the garden. It was proclaimed by the prophets and apostles. It is a message of God's love and forgiveness and the fulfillment of His word to rescue humanity from the predicament that it is in.
Hope in the biblical sense is not based on wishful thinking. It is rooted and grounded in the integrity of God Himself. It is the only solution that humanity has.
Life on this planet seems harsh and at times meaningless. Many find an easy way to escape the realities of our condition by using drugs, alcohol, relationships, or anything else. For the most part, everything we do is an attempt to dull our senses to the misery that we see all around us and the pain that we feel deep down inside of us. It is an attempt to find solace or consolation to keep us going. We look for answers, from philosophy to comic strips, from great musical masterpieces to fine arts; no matter what the pursuit, it is an attempt to ease the pain of suffering that we are in. The rich and the super rich, the poor and the super poor, the religious and the not-so-religious all suffer from the same ailment.
Life is supposed to be better than this, but the reality is, it is not. The message of the Bible, the gospel of Jesus Christ, is the only hope for a better life.
"I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jer. 29:11 NIV)
