A Biblical Response to Current Events -7-13-19

The Debate is Heating Up

What’s Happening: “One thing’s for sure: There is much debate over climate change. Some, like Representative Brooks from Alabama say there is climate change, but not from humans and not as a result of what many claim the Green New Deal is supposed to address tps://www.desiringgod.org/articles/trade-self-help-for-god-help?utm_campaign=Daily%20Email&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=74564732&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-8WjluigTaIKUC665tFSCzzGtBCHioadv24nburmbRRLqbNtTuVYHCw6lFDmmv5byVXS40GJ9Jx_PVCX6IccYuhIUyAiQ&_hsmi=74564732). Still, that was in May of 2018, What he said last Thursday has many wondering. Search for it yourselves. You’ll find it hard, Sure, there are websites galore espousing the liberal line and many news stories (https://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/World+News/Environment/Climate+Change), but few that give both sides of the debate. Some say this is just a cyclical warming, some say we only have 12 more years…if we don’t take drastic measures.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “What is the truth? Should I be worried?”

Biblical Response:  “The Bible says; “While the earth remains, seedtime and  harvest, And cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not  cease.” (Gen 8:22 NASU) That’s a little more (sarcasm) reliable than a government-funded or GreenPeace-funded study that only rewards a certain conclusion.” 

“Should you be worried? Perhaps. Mostly you should be worried about folks who’ll sell their soul to the highest bidder. Is the earth on its way out? Yes (2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21:1), but not before you  can hit your knees…and I’d say you have at least a little more than 12 years,”

“Christians? We believe the environment is one of Man’s chief stewardships (Gen. 2:15). But we also believe in good science and in not letting our fears manipulate us (1 John 4:18). Besides, Man would like to think he’s in charge, that he is so powerful that he can save (or lose) the planet by his own actions.” 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to discern the truth and to act responsibly; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
