Planet Earth: its future depends on humans

"When we see the state of the world today, of course we tell ourselves the worst may yet happen: atomic war, epidemics, natural catastrophes and so on, capable of bringing about the disappearance of humankind. And so, voices are heard announcing that the afflictions described in the book of Revelation are set to rain down on earth. It is true that Revelations predicts the end of the world; it is written. But actually events are never predetermined. They can take quite a different course, depending on the behaviour of humanity. Nothing is predetermined; there is no irrevocable destiny, either for the individual or for the world as a whole.

God is not a tyrant decreeing cataclysms that no one can do anything about. He created humans with free will; they determine their own future. If they live without awareness and lead a dissolute life, they unleash chaotic currents, and then, of course, the laws of nature, which are the laws of justice, bring them to catastrophic ends; it can only be so. But if they decide to be wiser, if they radiate a harmonious energy and no longer disturb the balance of nature, many misfortunes can be avoided."
