TITLE: Christian Environmentalism


Things aren't looking so good for the global warming fanatics these days. You know who I'm talking about; the anti-capitalist earth worshipping crowd who have been semi-successful at hijacking science in order to push a redistribution of wealth agenda down the throats of those who "have" in order to favor the "have nots". Who does this benefit? It benefits the power-hungry elite when they can say "Look what we did for you. Now make us your masters". This may sound simplistic but guess what: that's exactly how liberalism became so popular. They promised a chicken in every pot and a cradle to grave welfare system as long as they get your vote. Now the philosophy of big brother government is seeking worldwide influence. Forget about rugged individualism and a life lived by faith. Mother earth is in peril and the politicians are here to save her.

"The nine scariest words in the English language are 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help'". Those are the words of former Pres. Ronald Wilson Reagan. He understood that free market capitalism will always protect its future. It won't allow itself to be wiped out. The greedy are the ones who hurt the capitalist method and should be dealt with accordingly. Capitalism and greed are not synonymous terms. True capitalism works wherever it is implemented.

There are world leaders out there who are determined to undermine the rights of the individual through incremental regulation of phantom crisis like global warming, climate change and so on by using fake, unproven science. People all over the world, from British Lords to renowned climatologists, are coming out on the subject and crying foul against the onslaught of misinformation designed to rob humanity of its distinct inalienable rights given to all men and women.

As for Christianity, it goes without saying that we ought to choose to keep our environment clean. We should pollute less and recycle more. We should seek to continuously find ways of being good stewards of the earth. However, just as we didn't buy into the "global cooling" hoax of the seventies we remain steadfast and firm on the word of God which boldly declares without apology that as long as the earth remains there will be no end to seed time and harvest time. Alarmism is unacceptable. It causes people to believe absurdities and gives license to others to commit atrocities. The Bible will have the final word on the subject. That is Christian environmentalism.

Good idea; entering an editorial into the mix. This is exactly the way I feel about liberalism. Exactly how can the churches help people when the STATE is now responsible for that and taxes are way too high.

Keep up the good fight.

May God bless.

Your editorial seems heartfelt and I agree with everything you said. I would only add that part of being good stewards is to be on our knees praying for God to open the eyes of the blinded in this world and to change their hearts and minds before the nonsense goes too far. Good writing.

I appreciate your viewpoint and your creative take on this topic, but I want to take this opportunity to add something to what you say.

I believe there should be more Christ-centered calls to action on the environmental issue. The truth is that people are too often complacent about being good stewards because it is less important than "spiritual" matters. I also think people get scared off because of being afraid of being branded "liberal." Just remember that it is important to care for the environment because it is something that God has commanded us to do.
