Some scientists and other doomsayers such as Al Gore have been telling us that our use of fossil fuel is causing the earth to get warmer. They call us to give up our American way of life and get back to nature by walking, riding bicycles, and just staying home when we don't have to go out and drive.
My sister and brother-in-law recently saw Al Gore's hyperbolistic fictional documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," and are now quite worried that their country (Bangladesh) will be completely under water in the next 10 years.
I have found a method to eliminate some meaningless chatter and worry from my life. Whenever a liberal speaks, I assume that they are lying and accept whatever they say as a lie. That way I don't have to worry about figuring out what their agenda is or what actual truth may lie at the bottom of their never-ending agenda-driven falsehoods. So I did not waste any time watching Al Gore's movie. But my sister and her husband did and were taken in by the things that have already been proven false by many others.
On the other side of this issue, many conservative talking heads and some religious leaders have disputed the global warming concept. Since these folks typically have a strong political agenda also, even though I agree with them much of the time, I can't completely accept their assessment at face value.
So is there global warming or not?
Professor Bill Gray of Colorado State University says that global warming exists but that it is not caused by us. This is an interesting middle ground between the two opposing sides.
As Christians, we know that global climate change was predicted nearly 2,000 years ago by the Apostle Johnsome of which you may read in the callout box to the right.
I don't know if global warming exists at all or if it is the preparation for this intense heat that will be part of the Great Tribulation, but it certainly may be. And if it is, then those who are pushing the Global Warming agenda are pawns in Satan's deceptive plan.
And I think Professor Gray has it right. We are not as important as we like to think. God is still in control of the temperature. And man should tremble in fear of Almighty God instead of congratulating himself on how much damage he has done to the planet.
