The RELIGION of CLIMATE CHANGE

The RELIGION of CLIMATE CHANGE 

1. Upfront on the political agenda of the coming Antichrist is Globalism.

2. One of today's driving forces under-girding Globalism is the Religion of "Climate Change".

3. Climate Change is a subset of the non-scientific, faith-based Religion of Evolutionism.

4. Today, Climate Change commands the allegiance of the entire political narrative of godless forces in America.

5. The Religion of Climate Change puts the fate of the planet in the hands of man. That is the main reason it is un-Biblical. But here are some more reasons,

     1) God Promised A Permanent Habitable Climate

 After the global flood, God promised He would never again destroy the entire planet by a flood (Gen 9:11-15). In that same context He also promised that as long as the earth remains there will be no worldwide Climate Change.


              "... the LORD said to Himself, 'I will never again curse the ground ...  While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And                 summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease.' " (Gen 8:21-22)



Genesis 8:22 is an ironclad promise--and a prophecy-- that a Habitable Climate on earth will remain until Christ inaugurates His Millennial Kingdom.
              "God assured Noah… that a regular order of nature, with a fixed sequence of seasons and a fixed cycle of day and night, would prevail from that                 time on…The earth’s orbital revolution about the sun, its axial rotation and inclination, and it's marvelous atmosphere also help establish these                 constants of nature ..."   

                                                        Henry Morris, the Genesis Record, Gen 8:22, page 218 -219 

    

              Times and seasons, created by God in the beginning will never cease till the end of history.
                                                        The NIV Study Bible, Genesis 8:22


The Bible allows for variations in Climate (droughts, famine, blizzards, Tribulation Judgments, etc). These variations are regional and temporary "changes". But today's political definition of "Climate Change" is not talking about climate-variations.
    
           Today's DEFINITION of Climate Change
                            A worldwide permanent Change from a Habitable Climate to a Deadly Climate.

     2) But the Bible says that kind of Climate Change won't happen—As Long As The Earth Remains   

                    1--While the earth remains, its Habitable Climate will remain (Gen 8:22);
                    2-- The earth will remain forever (Psa 78:69; 93:1; 104:5; Ecl 1:4) ...
                    3--Therefore the earth's Habitable Climate will remain forever. (clearly implied in Ecl 1:4-11)


     3) The Perpetual Existence Of Israel

Another factor putting a Biblical-Stop on the godless idolatry of "Climate Change" is Israel. But what does Israel have to do with Climate Change?

The perpetuity of Israel is guaranteed by the perpetuity of the "fixed patterns" of the earth, which include the permanent continuity of Climate stability.


  Thus says the LORD, Who gives the sun for light by day, And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night... "If this fixed order departs From before Me," declares the LORD, "Then the offspring of Israel also shall cease From being a nation before Me forever." (Jer 31:35-36)


If we insert the Bible's own definition of the "fixed order" in place of that same phrase in the verse above, we can legitimately read it as follows,
 

                "Thus says the LORD, Who gives the sun for light by day, And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,... ' If this fixed                 order— Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night  (Gen 8:21-22)— departs From before Me,'                 declares the LORD, Then the offspring of Israel also shall cease From being a nation before Me forever."


(Jer 31:35-36; Gen 8:22; see also Jer 33:20-21 where the assurance of the reign of Jesus on David's Throne is linked to the assurance of Climate-stability)


Scientist & Bible scholar Henry Morris explains the interlocked relationship of "fixed order-day & night" to the earth's Climate; "
              "Most of the earths natural processes depend ... On the constancy of the Earth's rotation and it's solar orbital revolution, controlling all… climatologic                 cycles."   

                                Henry Morris, the Genesis Record, Gen 8:22, page 218 -219

As surely as the seasons and climate-cycles are established and secure, so too is Israel established and secure.
Just as the un-Changing fixed-order of the Climate guarantees the perpetuity of Israel, the very existence of Israel is evidence of the un-Changing fixed-order of the Climate.

     CONCLUSION
Thus, in regard to all that has been said above, the Religion of "Climate Change" is confronted with this After-the-Flood Fact:
     1. As long as God's created Climate remains un-Changed, God's Chosen People Israel will endure  (Gen 8:22; Jer 31:35-36; 33:20-26) .  .  .
     2. God's People Israel will endure forever (2 Sam 7:24; 2 Chr 9:8; Eze 43:7). . .
     3. Therefore God's created Climate will remain UN-Changed.
    
Whether one believes the earth will remain forever as a renovated "new earth", or as an annihilated and recreated "new earth", is of no consequence. Either way, the earth's Climate will remain unceasing until, throughout, and beyond the future Millennial Kingdom of Christ.
                          PRAISE the NAME of JESUS !!!

TWO VIEWS OF "CLIMATE CHANGE"--Guess which one is the view of today's "Climate Change" Religion?

VIEW #1--"We are here because [of the 'Big Bang']...and have managed, so far, to survive by hook and by crook. We may yearn for a 'higher' answer--but none exists."
     Stephen J. Gould (scientist & late apologist for the religious movement of evolutionism), as quoted in The New Answers Book, Vol. 4, Ken Ham, ed., Master         Books, Green Forest, AR, 2013,  p. 189-90.

VIEW #2--"To those who believe that the heavens and the earth were designed and created by [God], there is ample reason to expect that earth's temperature will remain in a range to support life. In fact, God gives us that promise in Genesis 8:22. Within this worldview it makes perfect sense that the earth would have a temperature control system just like our bodies do, since God designed them both."
     The New Answers Book, Vol. 4, Ken Ham, ed., Master Books, Green Forest, AR, 2013,  Dr. Alan White, p. 190.

BELOW, Picture #1—The Religion of "Climate Change" puts a 'Livable', verses a 'Deadly', Climate in the hands of man.

BELOW, Picture #2—Check the news daily. If Israel is still here, so is God's Created, Habitable Climate.

BELOW—A history of false "Climate Change" predictions (courtesy of The Tulsa Beacon, a Christian worldview newspaper)


We must realize that unless we are extremely lucky, everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue steam in 20 years. Dr. Paul R. Ehrlich, the New York Times, 1969.

The oceans will be as dead as Lake Erie in less than a decade. Dr. Paul R. Ehrlich, Redlands Daily Facts, 1970.

Scientist predict a new Ice Age by the 21st century. Air pollution will obliterate the sun and cause a new Ice Age in the first third of the next century. The demands for cooling water will boil dry the entire flow of the rivers and streams of the continental United States. By the next century the consumption of oxygen in combustion processes, worldwide, will surpass all of the processes which return oxygen to the atmosphere. The Boston Globe, 1970.

The world could be as little as 50 or 60 years away from a disastrous new Ice Age...such a temperature decrease could be sufficient to trigger an Ice Age. The Washington Post, Times Herald, 1971.

The present rate of the cooling seems fast enough to bring glacial temperatures in about a Century. Brown University, Department of Geological Sciences, 1972.

The weather aberrations they are Studying may be the harbinger Auburn another Ice Age. Telltale signs are everywhere... the area of the ice and snow cover have suddenly increased by 12% in 1971 and the increase has persisted ever since. Areas of Baffin Ireland in the Canadian Arctic , for example , were once totally free of any snow in summer; now they are covered year round. Time Magazine, 1974.

A senior United Nations environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Associated Press, 1989.

Unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return. Former Vice President Al Gore, 2006.

The world is going to end in 12 years if we don't address climate change. US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 2019.

"The climate of New-York and the contiguous Atlantic seaboard has long been a study of great interest. We have just experienced a remarkable instance of its peculiarity. The Hudson River, by a singular freak of temperature, has thrown off its icy mantle and opened its waters to navigation.” – New York Times, Jan. 2, 1870

 

“Is our climate changing? The succession of temperate summers and open winters through several years, culminating last winter in the almost total failure of the ice crop throughout the valley of the Hudson, makes the question pertinent. The older inhabitants tell us that the winters are not as cold now as when they were young, and we have all observed a marked diminution of the average cold even in this last decade.” – New York Times, June 23, 1890

 

“The question is again being discussed whether recent and long-continued observations do not point to the advent of a second glacial period, when the countries now basking in the fostering warmth of a tropical sun will ultimately give way to the perennial frost and snow of the polar regions.” – New York Times, Feb. 24, 1895

 

Professor Gregory of Yale University stated that “another world ice-epoch is due.” He was the American representative to the Pan-Pacific Science Congress and warned that North America would disappear as far south as the Great Lakes, and huge parts of Asia and Europe would be “wiped out.” – Chicago Tribune, Aug. 9, 1923

“In the next 50 years, fine dust that humans discharge into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuel will screen out so much of the sun's rays that the Earth's average temperature could fall by six degrees. Sustained emissions over five to 10 years, could be sufficient to trigger an ice age." – Washington Post, July 9, 1971

Boyle, 1990.

 

"It appears that we have a very good case for suggesting that the El Ninos are going to become more frequent, and they're going to become more intense and in a few years, or a decade or so, we'll go into a permanent El Nino. So instead of having cool water periods for a year or two, we'll have El Nino upon El Nino, and that will become the norm. And you'll have an El Nino, that instead of lasting 18 months, lasts 18 years,” according to Dr. Russ Schnell, a scientist doing atmospheric research at Mauna Loa Observatory. – BBC, Nov. 7, 1997

 

"Scientists are warning that some of the Himalayan glaciers could vanish within ten years because of global warming.

“This year (2007) is likely to be the warmest year on record globally, beating the current record set in 1998.” – ScienceDaily, Jan. 5, 2007

 

Arctic warming has become so dramatic that the North Pole may melt this summer (2008), report scientists studying the effects of climate change in the field. "We're actually projecting this year that the North Pole may be free of ice for the first time [in history]," David Barber, of the University of Manitoba, told National Geographic News aboard the C.C.G.S. Amundsen, a Canadian research icebreaker. – National Geographic News, June 20, 2008

 

"So the climate will continue to change, even if we make maximum effort to slow the growth of carbon dioxide. Arctic sea ice will melt away in the summer season within the next few decades. Mountain glaciers, providing fresh water for rivers that supply hundreds of millions of people, will disappear - practically all of the glaciers could be gone within 50 years. . . Clearly, if we burn all fossil fuels, we will destroy the planet we know . . . We would set the planet on a course to the ice-free state, with sea level 75 metres higher. Climatic disasters would occur continually." Dr. James Hansen (NASA GISS), The Observer, Feb. 15, 2009.
