The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath. And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found. And great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, fell from heaven on people; and they cursed God for the plague of the hail, because the plague was so severe. Revelation 16:17-21.
When you don’t have an almighty God to fear, I suppose you can get pretty worked up about a 2 degree change in the Earth’s temperature. And it must be pretty exhilarating to think you’re saving the world by forcing your neighbor to junk his SUV and take the bus. But there may be something more important to save that we are more certain to lose: our souls.
Before you call ME a crazy alarmist, remember that death is not an unproven theory and does not rely on computer models to forecast our demise. So, cosmically speaking, it is a small extrapolation to predict the sun will someday run out of hydrogen and leave the Earth cold and dead. What sets me and my kind apart is the belief that this could feasibly happen in our lifetime. AND that you can do something about it and save yourself. Isn’t that worth considering?
