KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the Lord. That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; they will not see prosperity when it comes. They will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives…” (Jeremiah 17:5-6, the Holy Bible).

COP 21 WON’T SOLVE GLOBAL WARMING: The 21st yearly session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change slated in November to December 2015 is yet another step in the right direction, but, sadly, it is largely inutile, not going to change anything.

The Philippines, like other places in the world similarly threatened by global warming, will continue to be in the grip of deadly disasters arising from environmental hazards, and a mere declaration asking us to set aside a week in our lives to think about climate change, and even another meeting of world experts in a resort in Mexico, can not really save us.

Why is this so? Because, as world environmental experts have already established, the problem about climate change and global warming is too huge to be solved by humans. The only way to really solve global warming and climate change is to recognize it as what it really is: a curse from God for mankind’s having turned its back on Him.

ENVIRONMENTALISTS MUST READ THE BIBLE FOR SOLUTIONS: I am sure many will continue to scoff at this idea, but my suggestion is that, those who are looking into the problem who have not even now found any solution despite spending millions of dollars already, may want to know what God, through the Holy Bible, is saying on the matter.

What is God saying about climate change and global warming? Let us read it once more, from Deuteronomy 28:15, 22-24, which says: “However, if you do not obey the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you…

“The LORD will strike you with… scorching heat and drought… The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron…. The LORD will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies until you are destroyed…”

ONLY BY GOING BACK TO GOD WILL WE SOLVE CLIMATE CHANGE: Clearly, all around us now are having scorching heat and drought. Temperatures have become so hot the sky over our heads is bronze, and much of the ground has become hard as iron. There is no more rain, and instead, what we are having, courtesy of erupting volcanoes, are dust and powder coming from the skies.

If we do not turn back and listen to God again (by reading His Bible) and do not follow His commands and decrees, perdition and destruction awaits us. So while there is still time, we must go back to God. Read His Bible and obey His commands.
