Happy Anti-Earth Day!
Thursday, April 22, is "Earth Day" around the globe, but here at Creation Moments, it's Anti-Earth Day. Don't take this wrong. We're not anti-Earth, but we're most definitely against "Earth Day." And we're anti-anything that is anti-Christianity. According to The Environmental Handbook - the "bible" of the modern environmentalism movement - Christianity is largely at fault for environmental woes. And thanks to Christianity, the ecological crisis will only get worse (p. 25).
The book also tells us: "No technical solution can rescue us from the misery of overpopulation. Freedom to breed will bring ruin to all. The only way we can preserve more precious freedoms is by relinquishing the freedom to breed" (p. 49, Garrett Hardin). In fact, many environmentalists today want the world population to be reduced to a total of 500 million. Maybe that's why they're more concerned with protecting endangered animal species than protecting the life of young members of the human species in the womb.
Worse still is this sacred earth prayer found in the book: "Mother, Father, God, Universal Power - remind us daily of the sanctity of all life. Touch our hearts with the glorious oneness of all creation as we strive to respect all the living beings on this planet. Penetrate our souls with the beauty of this earth, as we attune ourselves to the rhythm and flow of the seasons. Awaken our minds with the knowledge to achieve a world in perfect harmony and grant us the wisdom to realize that we can have heaven on earth."
Heaven on earth? That may be fine for environmentalists, but Christians are looking forward to heaven in heaven and eternal life in the presence of Jesus Christ. While we're still on Earth, we will do our best to be good stewards of our planet's resources ... but we will never - ever! - worship the creation. Only our Creator is worthy of our praise and adoration!
