Heaven helps those who help themselves

The year is 2020 and in their First Annual Offsite entitled, “Mission Earth,” the Christian, Judaic, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Bahai, Mormon, Taoist, Confucian, Shinto and all other Gods meet on the far side of the Moon.

It has been a lively and “spirited” week, filled with celebration. At the end, there is consensus and complete agreement as a progress report is handed in regarding, “Mission Earth.”

All agree: “They actually did it! Mankind actually saved themselves and their planet and are on a path to continued health and prosperity.”

Instrumental to that accomplishment, all the Gods agree that various regions of mankind stopped using the names of their Gods to further their personal and selfish agendas and instead all lived to carry out the spirit of each of their Gods which was to care for and take better care of their fellow man, woman and child as well as all living creatures and the planet Earth itself.

In your comments, please state what it is that Mankind specifically does and stops doing between now and 2020 so that all your Gods would come to the conclusion above.
