Is Global Warming True?

That is the question that many people are having these days, especially if one is in the Democrat Party in the state of Iowa. In all fairness, I should say that not all Democrats would hold to the theory of Global Warming. It is not uncommon to hear from the mouths of many church members around here "This Global Warming is something, really something." I had a man come up to me this past Sunday and those were his words. He really felt that if it wasn't for Global Warming we would be looking at minus 20 to 30 degree weather right now in Clinton, IA. And this is a man almost 90 years old believing this stuff! I beg to differ, it is a sign of the End Times. We are in the last days and the weather points to that fact. One just does not read of Global Warming in the Bible. Friends, the weather patterns are different everywhere right now and I don't care what part of the U.S.A a person lives in.

In my humble opinion, things are going to get worse and worse until Jesus comes again and that includes the weather. America in it entirety will never, never get any better. (Read Matt. 24). Come on now, why should the weather forecast and other things like that take our eyes off the good news of the gospel, the cross of Christ and the things of God in general? It shouldn't and nothing should! Don't be deceived into believing something that is not scriptural.

It appears that many Americans really have stooped to the point of worshiping aspects of creation over the creator of the universe; the God that made everything including the weather patterns. (Read Rom. 1:24,25). Do you think for a moment that the weather patterns are controlling themselves or that God is in control of them? I opt for the second choice. I think some people better stop and think what it means to say that God is sovereign. When sovereignty is spoken of in the Bible it means that God is in complete control of things in heaven and on earth and that clearly proves that He created the weather and is control of it. So much for the theory of Global Warming, that idea in thrown out the window with the baby's bathwater.

Jesus Christ is coming back a second time and the Bible says it will be like a thief in the night. He is coming when a person least expects it. Are you ready? Are your bags packed, life right? Begin placing your faith, trust in Him today and not the weather or anything of this world. Jesus Christ clearly died for the sins of the world, place your faith in Him today for the forgiveness of your sins if you have never done so. Begin living a life of victory in Him! Praise God for His Grace that Saves!

People have been saying the end is near for thousands of years. What make you think you are correct? If the end is near or not, we should live each day to the best of our abilities. Why do you have such a negative fealing about the future of america? You don't believe that things can get better? Do you pray for it?

The Bible says that we have been in the last days ever since Jesus Christ died. I have no idea when Christ will return, but it will happen one day and we need to be ready.

You are right anonymous, we need to live each day to the best of our abilities that God has given to us. If we live in the word of God and Have a relationship with Him, I think God would say something like "well done good and faithful servant."

The Bible says that the love of many will grow cold, read about the end times in Matt. 24. The reason why I believe things will get worse and worse until Jesus comes are that is what Scripture points to, it doesn't point to them getting any better.

Also, I try and pray according to the Bible. That is for Jesus to come soon, not that things will get better or better. You don't read that in Scripture. It is important that our prayers be according to the Bible.

In my past there have been many times when I have prayed for better health or to do good in a race so that I could have the chance to give God the glory for great things he has done through me. I don't live a perfect life and will never, but I will do my best to give God the glory if it is all a part of His plan.

Example: Caylin was sick for a week, Flu or whatever we don't know. All we know is that she has not puked the last 2 nights. Praise the Lord! We prayed for Jesus to make it all better. Knowing that Jesus can make everything better, but you will never know the outcome. All we can do is remain Faithful to Him.

God allows us to make choice's in our lives. You can choose to ask God "why me" or "why is this happening"...or you can Pray in the form of the Lord's Prayer.

That is how I try to Pray. A good book other than the Bible to learn how to pray is called "To Busy Not To Pray"

By almost any measure, the state of life in America is better than in the past. The economy is stronger, the environment is cleaner, we're living longer, our cars are safer, we have amenities our ancestors wouldn't have imagined... etc.

Regarding golbal warming, do you remember the population bomb, pesticide scares, the end of fossil fuels, the ozone layer depletion, and even global cooling (only about 20 years ago)? I fear global warming is just the latest in erroneous environmental doom scenarios.
