Faith Perspective: Humans are to blame

Have you noticed that environmentalists have replaced the term global warming with climate change? Some decades ago, their scare tactics warned of a new ice age. Admittedly, they don’t exactly know what will be happening to our environment except that it will be bad. They are correct. It will be horrible. The motivation behind scientists, ecologists and others is to blame humans for the degradation of planet Earth. Well, they’re right. The Tribulation judgments that will hammer the Earth are coming because of the gross sins that are sweeping the globe. Sadly, though, the motivation of the “greens” is primarily political power and profits for the donor class.

Christians should check what the Bible says about this issue. Perhaps the closest examples are the end times disasters prophesied in Revelation 6-18. But these prophecies don’t deal with greenhouse gas emissions. In order to bring justice, God’s wrath is being poured out on an ever-increasingly wicked world. And this will bring about all those bad and horrible things mentioned in the Bible reference above.

God is in control. And this world is not our final home. 2 Peter 3:7-12 tells us that God will replace the entire universe with the New Heavens and New Earth. So if Earth is going to be totally destroyed, why would humans be trying to save it? Yes, we should always be good stewards as Scripture teaches, but we shouldn’t fall for the Marxist scam about climate change.

Just remember that as born-again Christians, we are to focus on proclaiming the Gospel of truth. Its message is perfect. Planet Earth will be our home for as long as God wants it to be. Psalm 46:2-3 reminds us “Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.”
