And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”
The twentieth century marked a great acceleration in the development of the Earth. Many inventions that revolutionized human life were created between 1901 and 2000. We moved from using animal power to transport us in cars and bullet trains. Oil became the most desired commodity. But progress resulted in environmental problems because water, soil and air were polluted. But the Word of God tells us that there are worse things that contaminate us.
Certainly the world has become a major environmental awareness in recent years. And many people are aware that our planet is dying because we have abused polluting it. The media summarized the major environmental disasters in recent history. Here are some of them. Peaceful nuclear energy has caused significant accidents, including Chernobyl in Ukraine (1986) and Fukushima in Japan (2011).
The Deepwater Horizon oil platform of British Petroleum (BP) exploded on April 22, 2010 about 47 miles off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. This is considered the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the industry. Eleven people were killed and an estimated amount of 4.9 million barrels spilled. On March 24, 1989 the tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground in Bligh Reef (Alaska) and spilled over 40 million gallons of oil in an area of high ecological value. It is considered one of the worst oil spills in history.
On December 3, 1984 in the region of Bhopal (India) occurred a leak of methyl isocyanate from a pesticide factory. The compound, once in contact with the atmosphere, decomposed into a very toxic gas cloud that formed a lethal advancing at ground level. The estimates are around 8,000 dead on the day of the accident and about 12,000 died later as a result of the accident. Thousands of head of cattle and animals died, as well as high soil contamination by toxic substances and heavy metals.
But worst human pollution is not produced by nuclear plants, oil spills or other chemical substances. What more we pollute leaves our own being, and that pollution produces much more damage to us and all mankind. The contamination that came from the heart of Adolf Hitler was a terrible war in which millions died. And do not think we are more innocent than the German leader of the Second World War. Any of us can nest in its heart source of sins that would affect many people. Review our heart and prove how contaminated is. God bless you.
