From Six Days & Other Biblical Perspectives: Enhanced edition
Are we causing global warming?. Will many animals and plants go extinct? Global warming has been blamed for increased hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, droughts, and extreme temperatures. While many people support laws to reduce CO2 emissions, believing that this will appreciably slow the progress of global warming, we must consider whether the science supports this claim.
The debate over climate change is far from a settled issue even among secular scientists. There is a lot of controversy, not over climate change itself, as everyone agrees climate changes, but over the cause of such changes, specifically whether man has contributed significantly to such changes.
Simulations confirm that warm oceans after the Genesis Flood caused intense evaporation and snow and ice storms during a single Ice Age of short duration. If we use God’s Word as our starting point, we do not need to rely on unknown mechanisms that require hundreds of thousands of years. The Bible gives us the big picture that helps make sense of our world.
A proper and balanced perspective on caring for the Earth and its inhabitants comes not from merely promoting “environmental awareness” but is only found within the biblical framework, i.e. recognizing humans were created by a loving God and given the responsibility to rule over, subdue, and care for the rest of the Creation, once “very good,” but now suffering from the curse of sin.
Both the media and popular culture are saturated in the hype of global warming and climate change. How should Christians understand this sensitive issue?
How should the Ice Age, glaciers, and wooly mammoths be understood within the framework of the Bible’s history?
God has commanded man to be a good steward of the earth that He entrusted to us. In a time of almost cultish concern for the earth, how do Christians respond?
Did the Creator foresee the biological resources we would need to help correct our mistakes, as we fulfill His command to “subdue the earth”?
Many evolutionists are celebrating Earth Day by telling the world to stop global warming by “going green.” The great irony is that only the Bible gives a foundation for taking care of the earth.
Last issue's environment article got the most response. We list the main objections here, followed by comment in brackets.
April 22 marks the 31st celebration of ‘Earth Day’—an effort initiated to increase awareness about environmental issues.
Amid the pessimism and gloom over the future of the rainforests of the earth, conservation funds are being obtained from the pharmaceutical industry.
