Mark McReynolds, assistant professor of Environmental Science at Biola University [ostensibly a ‘Christian’ school of higher learning - ed], said, "Evangelicals, like the rest of our society, are coming around to the real evidence of global climate change. It is a big, complicated topic, with many implications for us in the U.S."Apparently, those evangelicals who are succumbing to the world-view that we’re warming the planet are being handed a bill of goods.
The first evidence of this is found in Genesis 8. After the waters of the Great Flood dry up, God tells Noah this:
“While the earth remains,Throughout the Bible, we are given evidences of God’s control over the weather: as well as the Great Flood, we have all of these, and that’s just a sampling of how God controls the weather. If God controls the weather, then it’s His prerogative to heat things up or cool things off – who are you, O man, who answers back to God, or tries to meddle in His affairs?
Seedtime and harvest,
And cold and heat,
And summer and winter,
And day and night
Shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22)
Beyond the face that the science (the real science, rather than the massaged science which gave us ‘anthropogenic’ global warming in the first place) has already told us the planet isn’t growing appreciably warmer or colder than is usual, I find myself wanting to ask these evangelical Christians if they truly believe God would allow His creation to be destroyed by man, particularly when He has told us that would be His job.
