Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
American Physical Society has published the following warning:
“The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now.”
One of the rather comical aspects of this paranoia is that Global warming actually stopped in the 1990s and for the last 17 years there has been no measurable warming of the planet. Actually, some climatologists are now predicting a Global winter.
The really pathetic part of this is the arrogance we demonstrate in believing we can actually control, or even influence the weather. Did you know that of the 100% of C02 emissions in the atmosphere, human activity is responsible for .28% of them. Pretty paltry stuff – but we enjoy believing we are in control.
God had to remind Job of the same thing. In chapter 37 (reading from the GNB)
“God commands snow to fall on the earth, and sends torrents of drenching rain. The breath of God freezes the waters, and turns them to solid ice. Lightning flashes from the clouds, they move at God’s will. They do all that God commands, everywhere throughout the world.
God sends rain to water the earth; or he may send it to punish us, or to show us his favor. Pause a moment, Job; consider the wonderful things God does.” Amen? (Job 37:6 – 14)
