First the Southern Baptists leadership got cozy with Rick Warren and now this:

Southern Baptist Leaders Take Unusual Step of Urging Fight Against Climate Change
NEW YORK (AP) — In a major shift, a group of Southern Baptist leaders said their denomination has been “too timid” on environmental issues and has a biblical duty to stop global warming.
The declaration, signed by the president of the Southern Baptist Convention among others and released Monday, shows a growing urgency about climate change even within groups that once dismissed claims of an overheating planet as a liberal ruse. The conservative denomination has 16.3 million members and is the largest Protestant group in the U.S.
The signers of “A Southern Baptist Declaration on the Environment and Climate Change” acknowledged that not all Christians accept the science behind global warming. They said they do not expect fellow believers to back any proposed solutions that would violate Scripture, such as advocating population control through abortion.
So Southern Baptists are buying into hype about global warming, but there is evidence of great global cooling:

Now there is word that all four major global temperature tracking outlets have released data showing that temperatures have dropped significantly over the last year. California meteorologist Anthony Watts says the amount of cooling ranges from 65-hundredths of a degree Centigrade to 75-hundreds of a degree.
That is said to be a value large enough to erase nearly all the global warming recorded over the past 100 years. It is reportedly the single fastest temperature change ever recorded ? up or down.
Some scientists contend the cooling is the result of reduced solar activity ? which they say is a larger driver of climate change than man-made greenhouse gases.
So we have more proof the sun is having a greater impact than anything man could do. While the Southern Baptists leadership is signing documents, NOT ABOUT SPREADING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS TO ALL THE WORLD, but about some trumped up hype about the world turning into a ball of fire before Christ’s return!
Rather than buying into the well funded junk science, that promotes that man will destroy the planet, what ever happened to standing on scripture?
|Genesis 8:20-22 (New American Standard Bible)
20 Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
21 The LORD smelled the soothing aroma; and the LORD said to Himself, “I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done.
22 “While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
And cold and heat,
And summer and winter,
And day and night
Shall not cease.”
Even before the Mosaic Law and therefore before the New Covenant in Christ as well, the Lord established a covenant with man. That despite how wicked and evil man is continually, God would not have the earth be destroyed and there would be weather cycles continually. And there is scientific evidence that affirms the promise of God, that is if you seeing it every day of your life is not evidence enough to convince you: Unstoppable Global Warming, Because Man Did Not Cause it! (Audio).
God knows that the total depravity of man has no solution in the proposals of men seeking answers in science. Hope only exists in faith on the Lord Jesus Christ, the righteous Son of God John 3:13-21 [click to expand link]. The one who created all things, Hebrews 1:1-2 [click to expand link].
John 3:13-21 (New American Standard Bible)
13 “No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man.
14 “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;
15 so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
17 “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
18 “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 “This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
20 “For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
21 “But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”
Hebrews 1:1-2 (New American Standard Bible)
1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways,
2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.
Christian churches should not give into turning focus from the gospel of Christ to the false gospel of the man made global warming cultists.
