Today's Creation Moment

Delicate, Precise Designs
Matthew 6:28
"And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:"
When a flower lives in harmony with and is dependent upon, say, an insect for fertilization, this is known as symbiosis. Creation Moments programs have given many examples of this, and each one...

Sunlight on Global Warming

Matthew 24:30
"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."

The world is a fearful place for those who don't fear, love or trust the Lord. Such a world is filled with demons of our own creation. Those demons might inhabit a jungle bush or the sky above a skyscraper. They are found in cultures that cook with campfires and those that cook with microwaves. Wherever these demons are found, they demand man's fear and must be appeased.

Sunlight on Global WarmingWho remembers over twenty years ago when scientists feared that the Earth was entering a new ice age? It was not long after this fear was proven to be unfounded that they began to see a new demon – global warming. While some insist that global warming is well underway, most admit that presently there is no evidence the Earth is warming. They warn, though, that it could start at any minute, and it will be caused by man's pollution.

However, a relatively recently study shows a strong relationship between the sun's energy output and land temperatures. Both have been recorded since the late nineteenth century, but they have never before been compared with each other. Of course, if the sun's natural variability is the cause of temperature variations, there is little we can do about it.

It is folly to think that man is so powerful he can change the world's climate. But the Bible's wisdom tells us that there is a Creator Who controls all things, and it tells us how He has loved us. It also tells us that this Earth will be inhabited when He returns to it.

Dear Father in heaven, I commend into Your loving hands all of my fears that have been generated within me by the terrified world around me. Let me, comforted by Your love, be a witness of hope in You to those around me. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
