This article comes from a media publication called Independent Online, which is a premium South African online news site and part of Independent News & Media which produces a number of national and regional newspapers in the country. Interesting how the author is seeking a person to fulfill the role of a 'hero' to step up onto the world stage. The author is not a recognised political, religious or other well-known figure, but probably embodies a growing and widespread sentiment. It sounds eerily like the one being sort is he "who will come in his own name" and whom the world will receive (John 5:43), and he who "shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries" (Daniel 11:21).
The one thing the world needs right now
The super-hero movie franchise is at its best. There is always a new film about some super-human saving the Earth and the reason for this is simple: everybody loves a hero.
Everybody loves that person who goes above and beyond to bring about positive change in people's lives. A modern day hero - no spandex, cape, mask or ridiculous, unimaginative pseudo name, instead they are represented by the good cause that they fight for and the values that they stand for and it is this type of hero that the world needs today.
A modern day hero is a person that the youth and even the older generation look up to and aspire to be like, a person who fights for peace, equality and freedom and social change without actually “fighting” at all and a person who is a natural born philanthropist.
In these volatile times where violence and conflict are used to achieve peace, when war is the answer to terrorism and people are dying on a daily basis from disease and famine, the world needs an activist or activists seeking to bring about a new world order.
