Ugandan leaders and the led take note. You no longer value humanity nor the environment in which God put you. You value power, money and properties and only pay lip-service to God, the real owner of power, your life, Gold and Silver.
This way you disregard the poor and needy, oppress them and even molest them, yet before God we are all nothing but small flowers, which flourish in the morning and begin to wither by midday and completely disappear by evening.
Because of our greed and selfishness we have put our environment, our countries and our futures in jeopardy. We are all vulnerable. Rethink and re-evaluate yourself and your ways. If you are a Governor, rethink the way you govern. As the Bible says we are just chasing the wind to nowhere.
What you have accumulated unjustly will be given to other people, who may not be even related to you, by God. I tell you. I know you don’t like the truth, and hate those who tell you the truth, but what I am telling you is biblical truth. We come to accept the truth when it is too late. We worship our riches, our money, our glory, and we forget we are just creations of God.
As God himself says, “You are doomed! You call evil good and call good evil. You turn darkness into light and light into darkness. You make what is bitter sweet, and what is sweet you make bitter. You are doomed! You think you are wise, so very clever (Isaiah, 5: 20-21).
“You are doomed! Heroes of the wine bottle. Brave and fearless when it comes to mixing drinks. But for just a bribe you let the guilty go free, and you prevent the I innocent from getting justice—-” (Isaiah, 5: 22-23). No. Humanity is what we are and must remain, and environment is our real home; we must treat it as “without it we are nothing”.
Environment is a gigantic outdoor hospital, shielding us from enemies of life like Ebola, HIV/AIDS, Covid 19 and Malaria, to name but a few. But we are on a horrible mission to oversimplify it to feed our insatiable greed and selfishness. We are not even caring about future generations, stupidly, because we shall not be there when future generations are suffering because of our present-day techno- arrogance and stupidity.
We are oversimplifying environment and Nature just to feed our greed and selfishness.
Although some people are committed to resisting change, change is a Godly quality, which is inbuilt in all inanimate and animate matter, and in all ecosystems. We need it to become human again and to recognize that without God we are nothing. As Arnold says ” nothing lasts for ever”. Only God does. Even situations don’t last for ever. Only God does.
For God and My Country.
