Worse than ANY polluted River!

For decades now, we have rightly been concerned for the stewardship of the earth, God’s creation. God demanded it. We were created to take care of it (Gen. 2:15). Unfortunately, many have taken God’s command to be good stewards, to become the path for their own personal power and control over people. Yes, we should not pollute, but I wish to bring forward a whole other form of pollution, much worse.

Part of being good stewards of God’s creation is to be kind and good to other people…people who are also part of God’s creation! So where is the pollution, Haven? The pollution I am writing about is in the form of our actions and words.

As Jesus was telling His disciples when concerns were raised about defiling one over the food they ate, He said it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person but what comes out of a person out of their heart (Mark 7:20-23). The words we use can cut more than the sharpest sword. The words we use can linger longer than the distance to our closest star. Just look at the coarseness of our language in everyday talk these days! Just look at the invisible hate polluting the internet and sometimes driving unseen persons to suicide. Just look at the deceit and slander found daily in politics and in the media. This, my friends, is pollution! This coarseness of language, deceit, slander and all lies (large and small) is FAR worse than ANY polluted river found in the least developed country you can kind!

One day, all will come before the Judgement Bar of the LORD. Let’s all work to clean up the pollution found all around us…start today!

Why All the Talk on Climate Change & Global Warming?

This past week was difficult for weather forecasters looking at New York. Strange, things didn’t work out like they thought it would. Sure weather shifts around and often becomes worse or better than the forecasters first thought. Try looking one hundred years out why would anyone in their right mind think that they could do so? Fueled by arrogance, many have tried.

I pray for common sense to return to our world. One look into history knows that the climate has ALWAYS changed with absolutely ZERO impact from mankind. Cities with pollution are strictly local events for the world easily tolerates worldwide pollution circling the globe in a few days from massive volcanic events such as the Mt. Saint Helens explosion. It is the very height of arrogance to think that mankind has any global impact. This is humanism on steroids! The Bible tells us to be good stewards of God’s creation; this I will always promote! But, to think that mankind impacts global weather, the raising and falling of oceans, and building up or reduction of the ice caps is nothing more than mankind wanting to be God. Do you really think that God would create a perfect universe and a perfect world that was so delicate that mankind could really destroy it? How arrogant! How humanist!

I wrote an article in October of 2009. It still fits today as much as ever. I invite you to read, “The Sin of Environmentalism“. We are directing massive resources to a nonexistent problem, all the while literally ignoring the plight of children in Africa. Have you forgotten the 200 young girls stolen from grieving parents to be sex-slaves to evil men? Christians world-wide are being persecuted at a massive scale. The evil in the world today, not a hundred years from now, is becoming much more intense, thousands are being killed. No one is being killed directly by “climate change”. If we turn our backs on our world neighbors and the innocent and focus on the arrogance of being God-like, we are indeed sinners to the Nth degree!
