Modern science is divided over many hot topics that are being taught or assumed as fact, including Darwinism, the origins of the earth, and climate change. Yet there is an enormous drive to punish and penalize those who won’t worship at the altar of extreme environmentalism. Why?
Every human being is created with a spirit, and as such, a visceral need to worship. Those who refuse to acknowledge God must worship something else. This vacuum opens up doors to demon-driven agendas, and one of these is exaltation of the earth, or pantheism. While it is one thing to be a good steward of the earth, the enemy likes to push everything to extremes, and nature worshipers proselytize their message that the earth is being ruined through human behavior and must and somehow can be saved through the change of human behavior. Yet scripture tells a different story, and it thoroughly addresses climate change.
Consider these passages:
“Lift up your eyes to the sky, then look to the earth beneath; for the sky will vanish like smoke, and the earth will wear out like a garment.” (Isaiah 51:6)
“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.” (2 Peter 3:10)
“All the stars in the sky will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll” (Isaiah 34:4).
“Of old You founded the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. Even they will perish, but You endure; and all of them will wear out like a garment; Like clothing You will change them and they will be changed.” (Psalm 102:25-26)
Thousands of years ago, the Bible foretold that the earth would change, that it would wear out. Why? Because the earth is under the corrupting influence of sin, and is in a state of decay. Unbelievers think such a statement wacky, because “the natural man cannot comprehend the things of the Spirit” (1 Corinthians 2:14). It is a concern when those who claim to be God’s people advocate climate change as their primary agenda, because anyone who reads his Bible knows that climate change was discussed thoroughly in scripture.
Jesus Himself said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away” (Matthew 24:35). Trying to affect climate change through taxation and other regulatory means in the handful of free nations who even have time to care is not just an exercise in futility, it is a serious detractor from the glorious Truth of the Gospel.
Will you pray that “truth and light will go forth” (Psalm 43:4) in this age of darkness and deep deception? What can you do to promote the truth?
