There are many popular issues that you hear about in the media, that are designed to scare you. And sometimes the concern is legitimate. Sometimes it is not. The issue of “global warming” is one that government funded scientists have completely blown out of proportion. Aside from the fact that the scientists have a vested, financial interest in the “studies” being shown one way (in other words the scientists are not objective and can't be trusted) there is another very compelling reason to reject global warming. The Bible refutes it.
Al Gore, the former Vice-President (and con man in my opinion), managed to make a fortune off the global warming scam. All the while doing nothing to lessen his own “carbon footprint”; he continued to live it up in luxury jets and live in energy sucking mansions as he jet-setted the world lecturing others on the cataclysmic dangers of global warming. Of course, Al's ruse was exposed when certain parts of the planet began to experience record lows and record snowfalls. Buffalo, NY just had one that dropped over six feet of snow on them. So much for “global warming.”
So now the scam gets a new name: “climate change.” Now they can claim any weather phenomenon as something they predicted. And brazenly command you to obey them and give them control, lest the world end in catastrophe. But the world will not end by global warming. At least not “man-made” global warming.
After the flood, Noah was promised that God would never flood the earth with water again. But God made some other promises that are often forgotten. The book of Genesis records this: “While the earth remains, Seed time and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night, Shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22 NASB) If you think the world will burn up because you use too much hair spray, think again. It's not happening. Or if you think our planet will spin wildly out of control and we will all freeze to death. Think again, it's not happening. At least according to God it's not. So who will you believe? Atheistic scientists who hate the God they claim doesn't exist. Or the God who created all things and works all things after the counsel of His will (Eph. 1:11). Trust God and reject the alarmists. If you want to fret, then fret about your soul. Fear Him who can destroy both body and soul in Hell. (see Matthew 10:28) The earth will end in God's way and God's time. Until then, summer and cold; seed time and harvest. Praise God for His provision and mercy. Trust in Him. Reject His naysayers. Follow Christ. And live in peace.
