The powers that be

The powers that be

.

.

The phrase comes from a translation of the Greek: αἱ … οὖσαι [ἐξουσίαι], hai … oûsai [exousíai], the … existing [powers]’; ἐξουσίαι is also translated as “authorities” in some other translations.[6]

.

A deity

.

A deity is “a god or goddess (in a polytheistic religion)”, or anything revered as divine.

.

The powers that be or a deity whatever your belief said sternly “guilty as charged humans, off to the dungeon with you.”

.

“Guilty of brutal armed conflict “

.

“Guilty of heartless displacement of millions from their homes”

.

“Guilty unkindness to fellow human. Bullying, stealing, racism and unkind words

.

“Guilty of inhumane treatment of animals”

.

“Guilty of causing a great rift in society, with humanity, with animals and in nature”

.

“Guilty of the damaging our planet quicker than it can recover”

.

Deforestation

Degradation of lands

Excess waste

CO2 emissions

And much more

.

I sentence humanity as it stands for the reckless regard of your beautiful planet, we sanctioned you to love and treasure. We entrusted you with the hope of humans and animals coexisting.

.

Trusting you would cherish life, love and support each other and procreate. We honoured you with a gift, in hope you would nourish it with love and hope, that this beautiful world would continue to flourish.

.

To the good, who endeavour to commit to this, the humanitarians and those who believe in the value of human life, those who promote human welfare and social reform, those who hold no prejudice against gender, sexual orientation, race or religious beliefs. Those who do not condone human or animal suffering. To the humans who have ideals to save lives, relieve suffering, and maintain human and animal dignity. To those who want to save our planet and continue to work towards it.

.

You are free to go and carry on with your good deeds and endorse a world where all live kindly.

.

The good respond

“Please entrust us with those who have wronged, for, perhaps they do not understand. Let us show them and educate them. If we stand together, work together, we can save our world from the brink of destruction”

.

We can change.

.

We have a shared destiny, a shared responsibility to save the world from those who attempt to destroy it.

.

With our love, we could save the world.

.

The deity replies

.

I give humanity one more chance

.

Love your world

Save your world

Or lose your world!

.

I rest my case! For now

.
