These activists and politicians want to totally control your life, shut down the economy, and shut down your freedoms.
These activists and politicians want to totally control your life, shut down the economy, and shut down your freedoms. Life would never be the same again. Essentially, they worship the creation (Romans 1) and want the creation to have dominion over people—while they have dominion over those they can control.
How should we apply a biblical worldview to this important question?
- Man was given dominion over creation by God to use it for man’s good and God’s glory (Genesis 1:28).
- Everything in nature is not “good,” as everything is groaning because of sin (Genesis 3; Romans 8:22). This means man should be looking after the environment by doing such things as forest management to ensure forests don’t have a build-up of fuel that can allow destructive fires to occur.
- They must understand Noah’s flood caused massive climate change, produced an ice age, and has caused climate change ever since. Such change can occur quickly. And God promises in Genesis 8:22 that “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” So those radical politicians who claim man will destroy the earth in a few years are totally wrong.
The point is, God has revealed to us in his Word that massive changes have occurred that affected this world: sin, the curse, the entrance of death, the flood, and so on. When politicians reject this history, they will make destructive decisions. Romans chapter 1 details what happens when people worship the creation rather than the Creator.
