Global Warming and the overwhelming impact of sin

So, Sarah and I were talking last night about a few things and the main topic that came up that seemed to overshadow most of the conversation was global warming. The thing however, is that it wasn’t talked about in a way that most people might consider.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I do think that global warming is real when you stop to consider that creating friction on a surface does generate heat. And when the populous becomes too much for the surface of earth, it makes sense that the surface would warm as a result of the activity. Couple that will our need to pollute and the concept of warming makes sense without the need for a collage degree.

However, I propose another suggestion; one that is not new, but rather an emphasis on an older concept. When we look at the old testament of the bible there were quite a few times when sin became so overwhelming that God did something drastic to douse the flames. The flood, Sodom and Gomorra, and the Tower of Babel… just to name a few.

With those in mind one can’t help but consider the current world status of our climate, the devastating weather patterns beginning to emerge, and the growing sins of this world and how they have managed to mirror almost exactly one another. When we consider the world events starting to unfold just in the last 6 months, it is hard to sit back and not scratch your head and realize that it might actually have something to do with our overwhelming acceptance of sin.

But, I want to take it a step further. Our conversation last night also led into what we see currently covered on mainstream news here in the States. And my only question is this; if there is this much happening across the globe, why is it that CNN, FOX, ABC, NBC, and all the other news affiliates like the NY Times seem to only be concerned with what is happening on Trump’s twitter account.

I think the funny thing is that I don’t find that ironic at all. In today’s world that is what is to be expected, I guess.

Anyway, keep being ignorant. Keep on living life without a repentant heart. It totally has nothing to do with the current state of things… I promise.

And who knows… maybe tomorrows update on Trump’s twitter will shape the world as we know it.
