Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Romans 1:19, 23-2
When “Climate-gate” became public and we heard that scientists have been suppressing facts and cooking the books to deliver a fraudulent message to us about climate change, I began to wonder what other lies are we hearing in the name of truth.
You see, there are those who live in an alternative reality. The reality is what they see in their minds. The truth does not matter to them. What matters is whatever they say is truth and even when it’s exposed as a lie, it remains truth to them. It’s as if nothing changes and they’re not about letting a little truth get in the way.
This article is not about “Climate change,” it’s about truth and the need for it. We hear so many lies today that it’s difficult to sort the truth from the lie. And when the lie gets exposed, those who lied tous in the first place give us another lie to handle the first one.
Thus, the alternative reality folks have an agenda bigger than their lies. Their lies only get us to the place where we will accept their presuppositions and allow them to carry out their real agenda which is to remove freedom, by silencing the church.
You see, freedom doesn’t just happen. It’s fought for and it’s cherished by those who have it. Those who want to remove our freedom, don’t want to give their freedom up. They only want to dictate to us what freedoms we can have, for the purpose of controlling our lives and making sure we never have it as good as them; and that they never lose their power.
So what does all this have to do with our faith. Well, it has a great deal to do with it. There are two competing world visions. There are two competing faiths that are playing out right now in the global area. One is the faith of the alternative reality crowd and the other is the faith, based on truth, eternity, love, and freedom.
One faith wants to enslave us while the other wants to set us free. One faith wants to silence the church, the other wants to expand its faith by reaching the lost for Christ. One faith wants to take all the money we have, the other only asks for ten percent. One faith says we have an eternal life in heaven, the other is trying to build heaven on earth. One faith looks to Jesus Christ as Savior. The other faith sees government as its savior. One says the truth will set us free. The other suppresses the truth in order to enslave. For them, there is no truth. The only truth that can exist is their truth. And their truth is a lie. It always have been, because behind it is the “father of lies” - Satan.
You see, those who push global warming and other controlling policies have their own religion. God makes it clear in Romans 1, that those who know God, but are no longer thankful will eventually worship the creation over the Creator. And if they continue down this path, God will turn them over to their own destruction. One of the outcomes of this faith…homosexuality.
Yes, the alternative reality crowd never lets a little truth get in the way. Truth, such as only 3 percent of all carbon emitted in the atmosphere is a result of human activity.
You see, what is lost in all this carbon talk is good science. Carbon is necessary for our survival. Trees and plants use carbon dioxide and their byproduct is oxygen. So, you reduce carbon dioxide and you reduce plant size and you reduce oxygen.
For the most part, much of science today is about proving there is no God. Socially engineered science with preconceived ideas with outcomes that have to prove those ideas seem to be prevalent today. Somewhere, in all this, the truth gets lost. But how important is that when the majority of people do not believe in absolute truth.
Jesus said, “I am the truth.” If you do not believe in absolute truth, then it would be difficult to claim yourself a follower of Christ, because He is the living Word. He is absolute truth. Thus, it should not surprise us, as we move closer to the end, more lies will be told and more ideas will come forth that pit man’s ways against God’s ways. The other side wants to control, while the Lord wants to set us free.
But we should not despair. The other side will get clobbered in the end. Their end is destruction. They will not go unpunished. Jesus is coming back. And while the other side wants to build their own one-world government, and they will fail, Jesus will establish His one-world government one day and it will not fail, because the Truth always wins out.
Shine a little truth on evil. Give a little truth and expose the lies…and you begin to see the real agenda behind the environmental movement. It has nothing to do with environment. It has everything to do with establishing a one-world government. Yes, the Truth will set us free, while the lie will enslave. As for me and my house, we’ll take the Truth.
