Remember when Bible-denying cartoonists mocked evangelists carrying “The End Is Near” signs? Today, the people holding those signs are not Christians but are climate-change alarmists …
The signs now read “The End Is Near in 12 Years”, and there are many people – especially politicians – who are touting it to gain power, redistribute wealth, undermine capitalism and take away our way of life. Nothing must stand in their way – not even the freedom to make our own decisions regarding the car we drive, the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the words we speak and even the thoughts we think.
Do the research and you’ll see that such alarmists are not peddling truth. They are peddling fear, and, judging from how many people believe the hoax, they are indoctrinating millions of people into their environmental faith, both in America and around the world. Children, in particular, are exposed to this end-of-the-world scenario, kids who are too young to analyze the data and come to a rational conclusion. When Christians, on the other hand, [are said] frighten children by telling them there is a real place of eternal suffering. Bible-deniers call us “child abusers” and threaten to take our children away.
Sadly, too many people are duped into thinking that climate-change predictions of gloom and doom are credible. In reality, such predictions never come to pass. Hundreds of predictions are shouted from the highest mountaintops. But when the predictions fail to come true – as they always do – not a word is mentioned. We are confident that the world will not end 12 years from now – at least not because of anthropogenic global warming.
However, the end may, indeed, be near, but it will occur because the Son of God, Jesus Christ, has returned to bring an end to the world as we know it!
As Christians, we must never forget what Paul wrote in 2 Timothy:1:7: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (emphasis added).
