Jesus said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will
worry about itself” (Matthew 6:34). These words of Jesus do not release us from our responsibilities to future generations. We know that if we eat sour grapes (radiation, ultraviolet rays, endocrine-disrupting chemicals, etc.), not only our teeth but also "the children’s teeth are set on edge" (Jeremiah 31:30). Therefore, we should have as much awareness as possible of our responsibilities. We are no longer allowed to postpone performing our responsibilities to “tomorrow.”

For a copy of the full talk, go to the Muslim World League speech by Encounter between Ecology and Eschatology, a consideration of Ecological Eschatology, submitted by Katsuhiro KOHARA, Professor of the School of Theology, Director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Study of Monotheistic Religions (CISMOR), to Conference On 'Dialogue, A Common Human Bond', sponsored by Muslim World League, Taipei - Taiwan, Rabi'I 18 and 19, 1432H/ February 21 and 22, 2011G.
