When a website you really like does something you don't like and you can't comment because the comment section does something weird, what do you do? You rant about it on your own blog, of course.
Yesterday, I went on to The Rebelution, a website that tries to get teens to fight against the low standards of society. I know some of y'all have heard of it. This website always talked about faith and trusting God. It was a website I trusted. Until yesterday.
Now, this next part I'm going to say, we might not agree on and that's okay. But the article I read was about climate change. Personally, I don't believe climate change is a real thing. This article was trying to tie Bible verses to proving climate change and that's not okay. The Bible is the Word of God. We shouldn't use it to push our own agendas.
The article talked about how President Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Agreement. The writer of the article, which I won't name here, started to praise former president Obama for what he said about climate change.
Then, this person made a list of steps we, as teens, need to take. Unfortunately, this wasn't a teen spreading his own a opinion. The man was in his thirties and he's trying to influence teens in the wrong way. Y'all know I advocate thinking for yourself and forming your own opinions.
The first step he gave was to recognize climate change was real and man made. Look, we do have an impact on the environment we live in, but ultimately, God controls the climate, not us. He controls the weather. Some years are hotter and some years are colder. It just depends. He went on to talk about the 97% of scientists who have proven it to be real. Yeah, that's not scientists across the board, that's 97% of scientists who take federal funding. If their money is coming from the government, who wants them to find that climate change is real, what do you think they're going to say?
The next step he gave was to study the Scripture for clarity. He puts Bible verses in there to prove his point, but they didn't prove his point. He was grasping at air. He uses Psalm 24:1-2, which states the earth is the Lord's. How does that prove his point? This guy tries to use other verses, especially some about the end times, which is a little fear mongering, if you ask me.
The last step he gives is what you can do to get involved. Now, I'm all about being a good steward of the earth. We turn off lights in our house that aren't in use. We recycle. We take care of our environment. A lot of people do.
What made me mad is the fact that this guy uses God's inspired word to push his own agenda. If someone wants to believe in climate change, let them. I don't care if they believe in it or don't. I care when you're using God's Word for your own selfish reasons. Most of God's Word is plain and simple. Other parts are poetic. But there isn't a commandment that says,"Thou shalt prevent climate change." Jesus never gave a parable about that either.
On that note, I'll end this here. I ranted long enough for y'all. Like I said, I don't care if someone believes in climate change. I care about the misuse of God's Word.
Tell me in the comments below what you think about climate change. Do you think this guy should have used the Bible to push his own agenda?
God bless y'all. 😀
