Topic: Grrr! (01/28/10)

TITLE: Going Crazy over Green.
By Henry Jaegers



It was so long ago. Maybe he has forgotten or changed His mind. Hear His promise after the world was destroyed by flood, during the worst time in human history.

ď I will not again curse the ground any more for manís sake; for the imagination of manís heart is evil from his youth. Neither will I again smite any more every living thing as I have done. While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, and summer and winter and day and night shall not cease.Ē Genesis 8: 21,22.

The idea of global warming comes from a base that does not believe in or understand that God is in control over His creation and always keeps His promise.

We may think that wicked man can destroy his environment because of his ability to create and make things better. (He was created to do such) True faith motivates man beyond the status quo to improve his world.

Where did this idea of Global warming come from? Some advocates quote scripture from the judgments mentioned in Revelation. People who never read or understand the intended meaning of the scriptures seek isolated verses to give their theories credibility.

When did carbon dioxide become a poisonous Gas? God created man to breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Didnít He know that eventually it would destroy the ozone layers protecting the earth from the sunís rays?

I had this idea on how to solve the global warming crises: How serious are these followers of this truth? Would they be willing to die for this, as the followers of Christ might have to do, for the truth they proclaim? Why not have all the advocates of Global warming gather together and prove their faith by refusing to exhale for ten minutes. That would only take ten minutes but solve the problem immediately.

Some may reason that when God made that promise things were not as bad as they are now, but consider how bad it was then:

ďAnd God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continuously ď Genesis 6:5

Just consider these words describing the extent of manís wickedness then. There is nothing today that compares to that period of time
As Christians we are contenders for the truth. The truth is: that God has spoken and still speaks to and through His servants. Henry

I liked this. You shared great wisdom.

This was written very well, although I don't necessarily agree with all of the content. If you are using this forum to make a statement, be prepared for those who do not agree. I believe what the scriptures said of course, but I also know that we are called to be good stewards over what God has given us. I would never misuse any gift and treat it lightly. Just like the gift of salvation, knowing that I have accepted Christ as my personal savior does not give me license to behave in a way that does not represent Him. Likewise, I would not knowingly pollute the oceans, air and the environment knowing that in the end God will somehow make it right. So whether you believe in global warming or not, the evidence is right before your eyes and probably in your home that we as a people are not being very responsible with the "gift" that God gave us.

P.S. Also I am not real clear of the grrr!. Unless it's just the fact that you are tired of hearing about global warming.

Yes I think you have a realy interesting argument,and one I must admit I had not 'seen'- though I remain convinced we humans are doing dreadful things to the beautiful home He created for us. Could we not be near destroying the planet using the free will He gave us? Ok so your argument, a good one, is that man cannot fully destroy God's posession. Well said --where is the Grrr?

I so understood the grr. But I'm sure many will disagree, one of the ways we broaden our horizons is to hear what others are thinking. Then we consider our thoughts, backgrounds, and where we live and come up with our very own unique position. It's wonderful that people are different and may not think in the mainstream.

I think the issue of Global Warming has as much disagreement in the Christian community as does different views on the Rapture and whether or not a person can lose their salvation. I don't think that you are advocating disrespect of God's earth when you disagree with the "environmentalists" views of Global Warming. Good job making people think, whatever the case.
