Man Caused Global Warming

What if this man is right?

I do not really mean one hundred percent right (and do you find it the least bit ironic I am using the word “right” with someone on the political left? I kind of did!), but what if his basic premise – the Earth is warming and humanity is largely responsible – is correct?

Two things spurred this question: 1) David Jeremiah‘s daily broadcasted sermons have been covering Matthew 24-25 and talking about the End Times, and 2) Mark over at 3-Fold-Cord asked if Billy Joel was right.

So, think about it: for those of us who hold to the teaching that Adam and Eve’s sin is what brought about pain, chaos, and death, this would make sense. Read Revelation 8:7:

The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

Revelation is all about God’s wrath for our sin. Therefore we can say we caused Global Warming … or Climate Change or whatever it is being called today. The Bible tells us things will get quite warm here.

I kept today’s post short and sweet. What do you think? Are we truly responsible for our planet warming? Does this mean there is literally nothing we can do to change the course?
