TITLE: 'Wait a Minute'
By Andrew Charles


To begin with I would like to start by quoting a very famous preacher describing scientists. The quote is from undoubtedly the most famous and brilliant preacher of our time Charles Spurgeon from England. Spurgeon said, “We are invited, brethren, most earnestly to go away from the old-fashioned belief of our forefathers because of the supposed discoveries of science. What is science? The method by which man tries to conceal his ignorance. It should not be so, but so it is. You are not to be dogmatical in theology, my brethren, it is wicked; but for scientific men it is the correct thing. You are never to assert anything very strongly; but scientists may boldly assert what they cannot prove, and may demand a faith far more credulous than any we possess.
I found an environmental class being held at a Christian Church. I decided to attend because I am somewhat of an environmentalist. I think any believing Christian feels they should take care of their Father’s creation while understanding it should never come before human life.
Now let’s move to my first class. They handed out a lesson book titled ‘God’s Creation Cries for Justice Climate Change: Impact and Response.’ My first thought is ‘Wait a Minute!’ An inanimate object can’t cry out and I started getting the feeling they were talking about Mother Earth.
Then I look at the bottom of the book on the left and it said, “If they keep silent,” Jesus said, “the stones will cry out.” (Luke 19:40) I was very familiar with this verse. My second thought is ‘Wait a Minute.’ I used to have a rolling message on my work computer that read, “Do you really want the stones to cry out?” Of course this refers to a time if the gospel will not be allowed to be preached. They used this verse out of context for their political agenda inferring the weather change was responsible.
Next we hear that certain radio talk show hosts as being ones who don’t care about the environment. Included were Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Bill O’Reilly. My third thought is ‘Wait a Minute.’ Am I at church sponsored lesson or am I at the Democratic National Convention? Personally I find problems with all three of the aforementioned at times. It reminds me of Athanasius calling what appeared to be intelligent people distorting the gospel intellectual heathens.
The class leader announced that the recent report of the record amount of ice in Antarctica was the result of global warming. My thought is “Wait a Minute.’ The indoctrinated class believed it. Is this the spiritual ‘dumbing’ down of America?
The class leader would always quote that the God created the world and God saw it was good. All class leaders would show how Americans have messed up the environment. They suggested to bring a piece of coal and everyone hitting it with a hammer as a way of showing their disgust. My next thought is ‘Wait a Minute.’ God created the world with a system that created coal. In their own way they were blaming God for coal.
The class leaders told us it was only sensible to use the facts and figures from the United Nations scientists know as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. My immediate thought was ‘Wait a Minute.’ This is one of the most corrupt agencies on earth. First of all they are from the United Nations. For instance four of the five leading scientists in Japan called global climate change caused by humans a hoax. As you might guess the one scientist who endorsed it was the scientist who got paid by the IPCC.
Almost all scientists agree humans are the cause of climate change. My thought again is ‘Wait a Minute.’ It is now reported most scientists don’t believe humans cause climate change. There are 31,000 signatures alone from a group Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine calling that statement a lie. Most scientists who endorse this lie are either paid to endorse the lie or are part of the indoctrination of the world to lead them into the New World Order. Recently one of the IPCC scientists actually admitted it was a scam to redistribute the world’s wealth. This official Ottmar Edenhofer said, “We distribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” In addition the IPCC issued an unprecedented apology for predicting the Himalayan glaciers would disappear by 2035. There are many more lies to admit.

One of the first comments I received with my first story at Faithwriters was that there must be plenty of white space. I have been ever grateful since....

Smile! Great thoughts!
It helps the reader if you break the paragraphs with an extra line in between. (I made the same mistake at first, too.)
The repeated phrase grew stronger each time. Well done!

You picked a controversial topic to write about and that takes quite a but of courage.

In the beginning I had a hard time figuring out where Spurgeon's quote ended. Make sure you close the quotes and start a new paragraph.

I liked the points you made and the Wait a Minute emphasized your points.
