Far out in the South Pacific, a chain of islands lie beyond the fast-paced technological life of today. Away from the stress of modern society sits Tristan da Cunha Island. The island, part of the larger Tristan da Cunha archipelago, is the most remote place in the world, 1,750 miles away from Cape Town, South Africa, the nearest mainland. Due to its geography and political structure, it also is a libertarian paradise.

If human behavior was put into consideration, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that violence is part of our species’ history.

Did The Modern Man Lose Touch With God?

Lose God
Rafael Augusto B.L. de Oliveira | @ancient_scrolls

Unfortunately, the modern man tends to only remember the Lord when he is going through bad times. In other words, the civilized man has little to no time to worship God. But what are the reasons behind this phenomenon? Why has the Lord lost his importance in modern society? What happened to fellowship among brothers?
