Many of today’s environmentalists are concerned about the state of our planet and if it might be too late to fix things. Apparently the problem we face is that the greatest threat to our planet is mankind itself, and with our depraved nature there is little hope for the future.
The general consensus among this group is that early in the Earth’s history the world was pretty much perfect. Man even knew how to live harmoniously with all of nature. This changed when man’s arrogance, pride and selfish tendencies began to exact their toll on the natural balance. War, famine, pollution, poverty as well as natural disasters became the norm. Now the Earth is worse than it has ever been and apocalypse looms on the horizon. The extinction of humanity may be inevitable and in fact a good thing for the rest of the world.
Many of today’s Christians are concerned about the fate of the Earth and don’t believe that there is any chance of saving it. The problem apparently lies in the fact that man is the root of the problem and his depraved nature leaves little hope for the future.
The general consensus among these folks is that early in the Earth’s history the world was perfect. Man even knew how to live in harmony among all of God’s creatures. This changed when man’s arrogance, pride and selfishness brought sin into the world. War, famine, pestilence, poverty and natural disasters became the norm. Now the world is worse than it has ever been and apocalypse lies just around the bend. The inevitable extinction of most of mankind will be the result and this will pretty much be a good thing for the world.
So what’s the beef?
