The Global Warming controversy is in the news a lot lately due to the world climate summit in Copenhagen and Climate Gate. It looks like the leaders of the most developed nations are of one mind that it is urgent for mankind to curb carbon dioxide emissions. The only ones opposing this are a skeptical minority who has thought through the economic ramifications of trying to control the climate.
I’ve long been struck with the religious fervor of the global warming proponents epitomized by Al Gore declaring the debate to be over and refusing to consider dissenting perspectives. Despite the growing evidence that global warming is not even occurring, government officials of the most prosperous nations act as if it is their moral duty to cut carbon dioxide emissions. Thus Satan’s control over the nations is growing every day.
The proposed solutions to global warming seek to moderate (and even reverse) the progress of the most developed nations. This is what Liberal/Leftists do; punish success while rewarding the underprivileged. Their irrational pursuit of this ideology dooms us to failure because privileges are intrinsically coupled to success and thus must be earned. Such striving for universal mediocrity is what caused Soviet communism to fail dramatically. The fact that mankind can’t learn from history is proof on its own that the time will come when God must bring it all to a conclusion. I guess the Liberal/Leftist rationale is that while communism fails on a national basis, it might just work if implemented world-wide.
Western Civilization has been greatly blessed by God as rewards for seeking to know Him better through studying His creation. Indeed, “every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights” (James 1:17, NIV). Discoveries of Western scientists have been applied to improve life everywhere. It is ironic that so many are now of one mind to remove the blessings from science in the name of science. But this is what Satan and his followers do, seeking to destroy what God has built.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:5 that many would come claiming to be the savior of mankind intending to deceive us. Satan has used corrupted science get people to believe his global warming dogma. And most are oblivious to the spiritual warfare that is occurring. A major strategy of the devil is to imitate what God does… “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14, NKJ). Climate Gate shows how Satan has been corrupting science to foster the fear of global warming.
It looks like most people have set aside critical thinking to just accept the corrupted science of global warming. I’m sure they believe mankind must be causing global warming because who would think science could let us down so? Despite Climate Gate, it looks like there is nothing we can do to reverse the economic damage that the global warming zealots are pursuing.
As I consider the Copenhagen global warming conference, Psalm 2 comes to mind… “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, ‘Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.’ He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the LORD shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath…” (Psalm 2:1-5, NKJ)
God’s wrath is coming. Thank God that those who follow Jesus in this Age of Grace will not have to suffer His wrath during the Tribulation... “for God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:9, NKJ).
