For Christianity, the world, in its plane of order, must be oriented towards God. A God who, according to the scriptures and history, has revealed himself very concretely in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Christian universe is not an anthropocentric or biocentric universe.
While some believe that the world will disappear, others believe that we are heading for an era of peace. What does God say about the betterment of community and humankind, which are the core of sustainable development?
The magazine Scientific American published an article that speculated on the kind of future humanity could expect. The authors, worried about Ebola epidemics, possible nuclear attacks and genetic engineering, asked themselves the following question: "Does humanity have a sustainable future on the earth?" After assessing the other environments of our solar system, a British cosmologist and astrophysicist concluded that mass emigration from our planet was "a dangerous illusion".
