CLARITY – 3-1-19 Climate Change is Real…CULTURALLY


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 3-1-19

Climate Change is Real…CULTURALLY

What’s Happening: “Jay Inslee, 68, Democrat Gov. of Washington, just announced (today) his candidacy for Presidency in 2020, emphasizing climate change as an existential threat. He joins a field of over a dozen already, with more just waiting for the right moment to join the fray (–abc-news-topstories.html). Quoting Gov. Inslee, ‘”This is a moment. This is the 11th hour to defeat climate change. It is a moment of great urgency, but it is also this incredible opportunity to seize for job creation.’”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Carbon fuels are making climate change real and urgent!’

Biblical Response:  “Maybe…but probably not…and that’s the least of our worries. Don’t get me wrong. I think that climate change is real. However, it’s not a man-made atmospheric problem…it IS a man-made cultural one! Considering the historical fluctuations of the earth’s mean temperatures, farting cows, Chinese carbon pollution levels, etc.  we have a preponderance of scientists who have it WRONG! Still, climate change (funny how environmentalists only use the term ‘global warming’ during the summer) is real, but it’s a cultural problem.. Since we have eliminated the Word of God from influence in our society, we have raised a godless generation that thinks socialism is to be preferred over capitalism. One problem. Man is not basically good. Man is basically bad.”

“Christians? We’re almost as big a part of the problem as the unchurched secular society. In our attempt to be all things to all men, our tolerance and political correctness has us backing down when we should be standing up (1 Pet. 3:15). The scripture is clear about stewardship of our environment. That was part of man’s original job description (Gen 2:15) and we have been assured that our puny attempts at destroying what God has made will be insufficient (Gen. 8:22). The problem is: we never read the Word anymore. ”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to make a difference in our culture…it’s a pity knowing the answer…and not speaking up; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
