Global Warming?

posted by Tom Davis

Okay, I know this is a hot topic – people have their opinions. But the reality is that something IS happening with the climate of our world. CO2 gases, numerous emissions from millions of vehicles and factories are changing the world as we know it. Something is causing the terrible famines many parts of the world experience. What can we do different? Thanks to my new friend, Mike Todd for this video:

…I wonder what a video, similar to this, would look like on other topics…like orphans, AIDS, malaria, poor water, sex slaves, etc.? Let’s talk about this on Friday…among other topics that are forming in my mind.

I am wondering about the effectiveness of this video. Pretty threatening and angry. But I understand the passion behind it and behind the Greenpeace organization.
Many in the Western church have begun to focus on global warming, but unfortunately, some are looking at global warming as their sole focus of “ministry.” It no longer matters to them that they demonstrate mercy or care for the orphan, the sex slave, the AIDS patient, etc. Their “ministry” is fulfilled by protesting, by buying a hybrid orby recycling more. It can be an easy way off the hook for some folks instead of caring for people and addressing their direct and immediate situation.
Don’t get me wrong. It is an important issue, and we need to take care of the earth. But it would be a shame to watch the Church go from being known for traditional catering to those sitting in the pew to becoming known for a focus on global warming. Either way, it seems to skip over the pressing and immediate needs of the orphan, the widow, and my neighbor.
