Storms, floods, and the drastic rise of temperature are blamed on global warming resulting from climate change. In addition to this, the world suffers from uncontrollable diseases, proving the humans have lost control of the planet earth.
Humans have since the dawn of industrial age explored the planet earth for natural resources such as minerals and oil for the sake of satisfying the appetite so-called “progress.”
The discoveries and developments derived from them have enhanced our lives in making our day-to-day experience more convenient (or rather pleasant in short terms). Meanwhile, the ground breakthroughs are not without some consequences. Earth explorations have left us with some deleterious long-term effects.
Man’s desires for sincere exploration for creativities are ethical, but sheer greed and the need to dominate competitors have spawned the wheel to an uncontrollable degree that shifted our dear planet out of balance.
Greenhouse emission and extreme heat generation from consistent temperature rise have set the globe on its path to impoverishment. Perhaps, the worse is yet to come!
Where has humanity failed its duties?
Humans didn’t just “lose it” in one day. Gradual unethical environmental practices have brought us here. Meanwhile, the situation was not like this before. The planet earth was not out of balance at the beginning. God, the Creator of the universe, didn’t handover a jungle planet as we have it today. God gave us a perfect creation, but humans mismanaged it.
In the beginning, God conceived a perfect creation; he designed it, and he created it and then handed it over to humans to oversee.
Man’s primary assignment was to care for the planet earth. Here is the history:
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth” (Genesis 1:26-28).
