This year, 2011, the world will have its 7 billion people somewhere in October. Is the world capable of holding 7,000,000,000 people? Definitely! But would it be easy? Definitely not! In 2025, they estimated that more than 70% of world's population will be in cities all over the world. Which means, no one would be interested in the farms, tilling grounds and scraping crops. This means the world needs to develop genetic engineering of foods and do it fast

The experts believe that it wouldn't be a problem for 7 billion people or even 10 billion people living together but the real troubles start when everyone wants to consume more foods. The ideal thing to do is that the rich have to consume lesser food (I doubt they can) so that the poor can have enough, so to speak. Speaking of attitudes of human beings, I strongly do not think they will get better.

The Bible clearly says,

(2 Tim 3:1-4) But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God

So, the adage, "survival of the fittest" rages on! To each his own! The rat race will not stop until the final cheese gets wholly gobbled up.

And then there is this number 7 thingy. It speaks of completeness in God's Word and perhaps, 7 billion would be another sign of the soon coming of Christ!

What Christians ought to do....

1. Live simple lives. Don't go into heavy debts or at all.

2. Have that theme in life, eat to live and not live to eat.

3. Be the light and salt to your world!

4. Glue your eyes to Jesus as you serve Him!

5. Always be aware that you are not just a statistic in the 7-billion-people world but a significant individual God can use for His kingdom!
