Al Gore Is Right About Global Warming...

...Just not in the way he thinks it's going to happen. It will happen according to his faith's tradition, he just has his understanding of his faith's tradition all screwed up. Do you remember this quote for Al Gore during the second Presidential Debate in 2000?:

"And I'm a grandfather now. I want to be able to tell my grandson, when I'm in my later years, that I didn't turn away from the evidence that showed that we were doing some serious harm. In my faith tradition, it is written in the book of Matthew, 'Where your heart is, there's your treasure also.' And I believe that we ought to recognize the value to our children and grandchildren of taking steps that preserve the environment in a way that's good for them. [emphais mine]"

Anyone with even a Sunday School understanding of what Jesus was saying knows that it has nothing to do with "saving the environment". Over the years I've seen people try to attribute some modern day ideological attributes to Jesus that just don't fit. I can't remember who it was, but when I was in college I read an article where the author was insisting that Jesus was a feminist. That, of course, is one heck of stretch. Al Gore's twisting of Matthew 6:21 is no different. Jesus was not an environmentalist. His mission here was of far more importance than that. He didn't come here to save the earth. He came for our salvation and to straighten us out on who God is and what he really expects from us apart from man made legalistic religion. He didn't come here to start Greepeace.

Here is a piece written by my father that I think is a good response to Al Gore and his "Global Warming" theory:

I SELDOM, IF EVER, AGREE WITH ANYTHING THAT COMES FROM HOLLYWOOD!

It’s rare for me to ever find anything coming out of Hollywood that I’m in agreement with even in the slightest way. But now I am somewhat shocked to find quite a bit of agreement between myself and Hollywood’s latest concerns regarding “Global Warming”. At first I tried to blow them off because the whole thing seemed to me to be completely “out in left field” and altogether too sensational for me to get my mind around their views. What with their favorite politician Al Gore being the leading spokesman for Global Warming, pundits and the swift involvement these people have in joining in the fight to stop the spread of this apparent menace. I was not impressed and of course very skeptical. It seemed to me that they were convinced that this thing was going to destroy all life on the earth and that all the people now living on earth were in real danger - Now!

I asked myself “What if this thing they are presenting does in fact finally happen? Why, it would take at least a million years or more, so why should any reasonable man be worried about this kind of thing now?”

I considered what I was hearing from both sides of the “so-called” scientists who were apparently not finding any meaningful agreement as to if “Global Warming” really has started, whether it is in fact possible or not, and the list of points of argument goes on and on. Then it hit me square in the face. I’m a “red-necked” bible-believing Christian who has spent the last 35 years studying the bible on a daily basis and have read all the prophesies given in several books of the bible many, many times. These prophecies were given some two thousand (or more) years ago by prophets and disciples of Jesus Christ! Try reading the second book of Peter – chapter 2; and please understand the fact that Peter was in fact a fisherman by trade who obviously knew nothing at all about “splitting atoms” but describes the complete and total destruction of not only the earth but the entire universe in what appears to be a nuclear explosion of unbelievable magnitude. Read the book of Revelations especially, the first verse of chapter 21, and see what message you get from this fantastic book from the bible.

It occurs to me now that Hollywood is really just preaching their belief that a “Judgment Day” is on its way and that if we don’t change our ways we will all perish because of what we’ve done and because of the fact that we have chosen not to believe a truth nor have we repented. WHAT A CONCEPT!!!! Now I get it.

Al Gore, can you say “Global Meltdown”?

yeah....uh, i believe in global warming, and i know that i'm a minority here, so i'll keep it short.

the thing is, even if it will take millions of years for the effects to happen, we still need to conserve energy. we kill wildlife with our four-feet-to-the-gallon gas guzzlers, and all of the factories producing smoke. Earth is letting us live here, the least we can do is not trash the place.

and global warming will have dire effects on future generations as well. i know this comes out of hollywood, but those "day after tomorrow" storms could be possable before long.

we are not to question the god who brought us the medium we communicate on. If we anger him, he will belittle from his pulpit and destroy us with his Nobel Prize that was handed to him for vindication. Much like Moses destroying the people who worshipped the Golden Calf, his medal is an atomic bomb of cleansing.

kevin,

I don't believe in "Global Warming". But I do agree that we should be responsible with our environment. I just don't agree with leftist groups like Greenpeace and ELF who take it way to far.

I also believe that it is time we start building more refineries, drilling for oil off of our coasts and open up ANWR for drilling.

However, recognizing the fact that oil is not a limitless resource we should continue exploring alternate energy sources. That will take some years so, in the meantime, we need to access our own oil supplies and break our ties with the Middle East and Venezula.
