LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…`everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash’…” (Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, in Matthew 7:26-27, the Holy Bible).
SUMMITS ON GLOBAL WARMING ARE ALL FAILURES: I can only agree with the conclusion from the fora and summits, and meetings and conferences, that have been and are still being held in Metro Manila and in other parts of the country, which say that the Philippines must furiously prepare for the inevitable coming of natural calamities, and the death and destruction that they will bring.
Unfortunately though, nothing good ever came out from these meetings and conferences, like the Summit on Climate, Environment and Disaster Preparedness at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, held last Friday, May 30, 2014, even if millions and millions of government and private funds have already been spent and will still be sent for these meetings and conferences, and even for any and all supposed disaster management and risk reduction programs that will be drawn up.
The reason? Let me reiterate: there is something strategically missing from the present approaches to disaster management and risk reduction programs, both here and around the world. What is this something that is strategically missing? It is the consideration that natural calamities, arising from global warming and climate change, have a spiritual angle that cannot and must not be ignored.
NO SUCCESS IN FIGHT VS. GLOBAL WARMING: HERE’S WHY: Again, I repeat: almost every country in the world, rich or poor, have already spent billions and billions of dollars finding a solution to global warming and climate change, the conceded root cause of these natural calamities and deadly and destructive disasters. Yet, no one among them successfully found the cure, as it were.
The world continues to deteriorate and slide down unstoppably towards greater calamities. Peoples around the world continue to die because of rains, floods, winds and earthquakes. Properties everywhere continue to be destroyed and rendered as rubbles and trash. And, there is no solution in sight, the regular and expensive meetings and summits on environment and disaster programs notwithstanding.
The reason for this collective and consistent failure? Again, it is obvious: it is the world’s dumb refusal to consider the spiritual angle involving global warming and climate. And this is pushing the entire human race nearer and nearer to extinction, whether we care to admit it or not.
SPIRITUAL ANGLE ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING: What is the spiritual angle about global warming? It is found in various parts of the Christian Bible, particularly in its Deuteronomy 28:15 and 22-24, and in Matthew 7:24-27. All of these Biblical passages are saying that global warming and climate change will come, as curses from God, all because man is no longer listening to God, and is no longer obeying Him.
Because man has turned his back on God---because he no longer reads God’s Bible and because he is no longer obeying God---he has become capable of evil, becoming ever so greedy for money and power. And this greediness caused him to desecrate the very environment in which he is living---cutting trees wantonly, poisoning the air with carbon from his factories, destroying almost everything around him.
God saw all these. In fact, in Genesis 6:5-7 and in Romans 6:23, God recognized the evil in man. So He warned man about the result of man’s evil, particularly in the verses that we cited here: death and destruction will come from global warming. Yet man is hard-headed, and has refused to give up his evil greediness. Indeed, there is hell to pay for being greedy.
