KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… If you listen to the Lord your God and carefully obey all His commands… you will be set high among all the nations on earth… The Lord will open the heavens to send rain on your land in season, and to bless all the work of your hands…” (Deuteronomy 28:1-2, 9, the Holy Bible).

EXPERTS ON GLOBAL WARMING WHO MET IN BONN, GERMANY ARE DEAF AND BLIND:

Almost all the countries that attended the global warming follow-up meeting which ended in Bonn, Germany on Saturday, November 18, 2017, are convinced that no substantive benefit came out of the so-called Paris Agreement towards improving the environment. The Philippines was one of the signatories of the Paris Agreement, and was also a participant in the meeting at Bonn, Germany.

According to reports, temperatures continue to rise in many places in the world, even as the environment continues to get hotter and hotter every day. This despite the promises of the countries who signed the Paris Agreement to considerably scale down their use of materials which push global warming, like coal and fossil fuel.

As I see it, nothing is new in these reports. From the time conferences started to be held by experts on the environment to find ways to combat global warming, they really haven’t found any effective solution to increasingly hot temperatures, and this is true even as of now. The reason for this is simple: these experts are deaf and blind on the real reason behind global warming.

IMPORTANT ISSUE ON GLOBAL WARMING THAT IS BEING IGNORED: Deaf and blind these experts on global warming truly are, because they refuse to consider the reality that there is a spiritual angle to the worldwide problem on environment degradation. These experts, including the ones from the Philippines, appeared to be too engrossed on their own self-importance that they became blinded and unable to hear the true issue on global warming.

What is the spiritual angle on global warming that is being ignored?

This can be seen, first, from Deuteronomy 28:22-23 of the Christian Bible, which says: “… The Lord will send you… scorching heat and drought… The sky on your head will become truly hot, and the soil on which you are standing will become tough like a steel…”

This spiritual angle can also be gleaned from what Jesus, our God and Savior, said in Matthew 7:24-27. Jesus, in these verses, warned of the coming of rains, floods, and winds, which will bring death and destruction to many. Both of these two parts of the Bible—Deuteronomy 28 and Matthew 7—contain just one reason why global warming and climate change are happening.

MAN’S RETURN TO GOD, TRUE SOLUTION TO GLOBAL WARMING: What is this “one reason” that will cause heating temperatures and rains, floods, and winds in the world? It is man’s turning away from God, which is manifested by their refusal to read His Bible as well as their refusal to obey His commands.

Because of this, I have been proposing, like a broken record now, that side by side with the suggestions from experts on environment degradation, there should likewise be a sincere action on the part of the governments of the world to return their respective citizens towards reading of the Bible once again, and towards obeying God’s commands all over again.

If the reason for global warming is man’s straying away from God’s Word and refusal to obey Him, the most effective remedy against hot, fiery, and scorching temperatures would be listening to God all over again, and obeying Him all over again. My prayer is that this would be read by the leaders of the countries who are God-believing before it is too late.
