** Obama says he is God, mocks the Bible, and supports Homosexuals (Mirror) **
Commentary :Stevie Ray Hansen
There is archeological and biblical and historical evidence — but “that there are some people that are so arrogant to think that they are so powerful that they can change climate. Man can’t change climate.”
** HNewsWire**believes that God will keep climate change at bay on the basis of Genesis 8:22: “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” This verse comes after the Flood, where, in a series of statements, God promises not to inundate the earth again, making the rainbow a reminder of the promise.
In its enunciation of a “Biblical Perspective of Environmental Stewardship,” the Cornwall Alliance, an evangelical organization dedicated to combatting climate change activism, declares:
***We deny***, due to God’s faithfulness to His covenant, in which He proclaimed, after the Flood, that He would sustain the cycles on which terrestrial life depends for as long as the Earth endures (Genesis 8:22), that God’s curse on the Earth negates either the dominion mandate (Genesis 1:28) or the robustness and self-correcting resilience of the God-sustained Earth.
God’s curse refers to one of the punishments for Adam and Eve’s original sin: “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life,” etc. (Genesis 3:17-19) But notice where the proof-texting stops. That business about the Earth’s “robustness and self-correcting resilience” is interpretive license, not biblical perspective. As for Genesis 8:22, it hardly constitutes a claim that human beings can do nothing to change the climate.
In fact, biblical inerrancy as understood over the past century does not preclude human agency on so grand a scale. To the contrary, apocalyptic prognostication is full of it. Not only are normal wars and rumors of wars taken to presage the End Times, but the invention of nuclear weapons has provided practitioners of Prophecy with ample fuel. “Every second of every day, nuclear bombs are aimed at U.S. by Russia and China,” declares one. “Soon the giant nuclear sword will be unleashed upon a wicked world.”
To be sure, the traditional Christian view, derived from the Second Epistle of Peter along with the story of Noah, takes the position advanced in the old spiritual: “God gave Noah the rainbow sign, / No more water, the fire next time.” If global warming is allowed to continue, next time we can look forward to both.
