Global warming will only be properly addressed when most countries are truly "fearful" of the consequences.
What joins countries, states, villages, clans, and even families
together is "love" of course, but fear certainly plays a major role. We hold tight to our families because we love them of course, but also because we fear being alone in this world. Subconsciously I propose that most organizations are greatly persuaded by what they "fear" in common. (A biblical way of raising our children: "Spare the rod and spoil the child". The child sometimes follows our instructions because he fears the punishment if he doesn't follow us.
As we reach adulthood in most religions we learn to fear Satan. If a preacher or tele-evangelist wants our attention he preaches about Satan and "Hell and Brimbstone".
I imagine Jesus gave hundreds of sermons about a myriad of subjects. Maybe a thousand sermons, and maybe he mentioned Hell only 8 times. Yet, all 8 times are mentioned in the Bible, cause the people who followed him remembered and retold those "Satan" sermons the most. -- Remember this, the Gospels were written about 100 years after the crucifixion and they simply reduced to writing the most common stories about Jesus that were floating around at the time. ----- Only our hearts and the Holy Spirit can witness what was important to Jesus, verses what is important to Religious leaders of Church Empires.
Thanks for that question, sweet petunia. (((hugs)))
