Climate Change

There have been cycles of significant temperature and climatic fluctuation in the past. The world is undeniably, experiencing unseasonable storms and adverse, extreme weather events now. This current environmental crisis plaguing the world has been termed global warming, but is now more loosely being called climate change. Scripture describes this vividly saying “The whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth…” (Rom 8:22).

This has the power to save souls for eternity, not just the world that will ultimately be destroyed for in the end-times, God will destroy the present heaven and earth with fire and replace them with the New Heavens and New Earth (2 Pet 3:7-12; Rev 21:1,2). Our responsibility is not to divert our attention away from the real issue of sin within the human heart but to share Jesus with people as He instructed us (Mt 28:19,20; 1 Cor 9:16; 2 Tim 4:2).
