When I was in elementary school, scientists were telling us that we were headed for another ice age. A little over forty years later, they were telling us that we were facing global warming.
This week it was reported that we just experienced the coldest January we’ve seen in over a century.
Perhaps that is the reason the scientific community is longer calling it global warming.
People can look at the skies. They can feel the ice and the bitter cold. They can read and listen to the weather reports for themselves.
Perhaps that is why they now refer to it as global climate change.
Global warming, nobody will simply believe it anymore, nobody except for the most gullible among us, those who are willing to accept every bit of nonsense fed to them by disreputable zealots who have transformed radical environmentalism into an article of faith.
And make no mistake about it: Man-made global climate change is a religion!
Just look at how they seek to excommunicate you from society or dismiss you from any part of their supposedly “intellectual debate” whenever you dare to challenge their dogma.
They tell us that it’s caused by man.
Therefore, if it’s a man-made problem, it should naturally have a man-made solution.
However, if our earth was created by God, then it isn’t likely that man can do anything to improve on it. It’s even less likely that the Creator made a mistake, a problem that can only be fixed by insignificant man, God’s own creation.
Let’s just suppose for the sake of argument that the climate really is changing.
How do we know that God isn’t the one who’s actually changing it?
He’s done it before.
Before the Great Flood, it had never rained upon the earth. The earth was watered by moisture coming up from beneath our feet.
Perhaps that is why Noah had a difficult time persuading the public, including all of those in the scientific community, that there would be the possibility of a global-wide flood.
But Noah was right and the “experts” were doing the backstroke.
And, before the flood, you can see instances where mankind lived for hundreds of years.
Now, a normal human lifespan is listed in Scripture as three score and ten.
Therefore, God must have changed something.
And if the Lord is changing the climate, then what business do we have trying to alter those things which God has already put into place?
We know that God has changed the climate before. Then why couldn’t he do it again?
Ultimately, I believe God is the Creator.
And a God who is big enough to create everything is a God who is much too smart to make a mistake.
Even if we tried, mankind couldn’t mess up this earth beyond God’s ability to repair it, or beyond His ability to stop us.
I guess my biggest problem with all of this is that I simply don’t have enough faith to accept the theory of evolution.
And it takes much more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe that a Divine Creator made this wonderful, marvelous, and intricate creation, which is the human body.
I have no doubt that these ideas might lead some of you to call me a “flat-earth” guy, but need I remind you that it was the Bible readers who learned the fact from Scripture that the earth was indeed round?
To the doubters among you, it was your crowd, the scientists and so-called intellectuals, who believed Columbus would sail off the edge of the earth.
And before you claim that my belief in a Creator reveals my ignorance, I must also tell you that a lot of things reveal my ignorance, but my faith and trust in the Creator certainly isn’t one of them.
In addition, my belief in the Creator was shared by brilliant scientists and inventors such as Wernher von Braun, Louis Pasteur, Albert Einstein, and George Washington Carver, men whose lives accomplished much more than those brain-dead scientists who accept the bone-headed belief that God is somehow incompetent.
In the past few years, I have seen no less than a half dozen gatherings and lectures, some featuring Al Gore or others sponsored by the United Nations, which have experienced record-setting cold spells during the events.
I simply don’t believe this is a coincidence.
Perhaps this is the Creator’s own way of reminding us that climate conditions are God-made, not man-made.
God makes no mistakes. But we often do.
And the biggest mistake we commit is thinking the Creator needs our help to fix the “mistakes” He didn’t make.
