Is God doing it?


“- Any action we take today will not significantly affect the climate in our lifetimes (true for just about anybody in their mid 30s — look at the above charts)


Not sure where you hail from, but in the States there are a not insignificant number of individuals who would tell you that God – and only God – can change the climate.  This worldview is deeply ingrained in many folks, and virtually impossible to dislodge.  Efforts to dislodge it will be met with ever more fervor.”

Although I am not a church member, surely it is not unreasonable that I should think that religious beliefs should make some kind of sense, some kind of appeal to our innate sense of rightness.  Moreover, is it too much to expect that religious beliefs reflect the immense, beyond our imagining, love of All There Is for creation? The concept that “God made me do it” is not good enough.  If “only God can make a tree” then it is only we who can stop destroying them.  For God so loved the world-


“John 3:16

New International Version (NIV)

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”


Belief in God does not make us unaccountable for our actions.
