What "environment" really matters? Maybe the one within us?

A dear friend sent me a video clip of a young girl speaking to what looked like the United Nations about the state of the environment/world today. This is the response I sent to my friend after watching this video.

Hi ..........., I have no wish to cause offence but as touching as that speech may be, what a pity it is full of the fear and lies that are infecting our minds today and none of it comes from God.

As far as "global warming" I believe it is the devil's biggest deception (along with "God is dead") to distract us from the truth, the truth you and I know and love. The truth is that without Christ there are no answers. Without Christ there is no peace. Without Christ there is no life.

Yes, she spoke well. Yes, she was well meaning. Would I want my daughter doing that, no. Do I want my children and grandchildren to believe all she said, no.

The focus of the Christian life must be Christ. Not fear and lies.

I am frustrated with the wholesale acceptance of the lies in the church today. It is evolutionary thinking and should have no place in our vocabulary. Holes in the ozone?, animals becoming extinct every day?, bad air, bad water, sick fish..........

NLT Romans 8: 38, 39 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

That is Christ's message, being drowned out by well meaning good hearted people who are being distracted by a hopeless vain philosophy.

If only she had spent her five minutes telling those powerful world leaders the truth, JESUS is the answer, He gives us hope for the future, He is the light of the world.

If only people would spend the time they spend obsessing with fear about the environment worshiping the living God instead. Now that might change the world!

with love always

Hi Lynn,

I only just read this post today, and I think it is amazing. You're right about this global warming theory being "evolutionary thinking". God is bigger than all of the fear that is going on at the moment about this stuff. Bless you sister!
