Is it really for man to decide?

Has God really left it for man to decide, the future of our
planet? I like these panicking moments in the international
meetings, where seemingly so important leaders of the world
are selfishly all defending their own rights.
I can picture people standing in the rising water and still arguing
and accusing one another.
Global warming is the consequences of sin. It’s the most alarming
cataclysmic result of man’s inability to live right.
Yes, it’s a sinking boat where people are still trying to organize
themselves in order to decide who sits next
to whom at the dinner party.
Should the Evangelical believers get more involved
in saving the planet?
I believe that we have been fully involved since
the giving of the Great Commission.
It’s a global commitment. Matt.28:18-20
With an understanding of the eternal character of man’s life
we have an awesome message to the mankind today.
Don’t be deceived to think that you shall “live on this earth forever”.
It’s a drastic mistake to concentrate on fixing the flower when the root
continues to rotten. The root of these problems is deeper than just
world politics and businesses. It is in man’s spiritual condition.
Unfortunately materialism and practical atheism often hide behind
a nominal Christian facade.
In true Christian message there is no room for selfish, hypocritical
life-style. It’s a message that leads us to forgive
even those who are wrong
and to lay down our life for those who have not deserved it.
We are not fatalistically passive about the global problems.
We want to go deeper.
Without recognizing man’s need for God every participant
of these meetings will face hopeless eternity in less than 50 years.

“All flesh is a grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the
grass. The grass withers, and it’s flower falls away, but the Word
of the Lord endures forever.” I Pet.1:24-25

“I don’t know what the future holds,
but I know who holds the future.”
