ANTHROPOGENIC (MAN-CAUSED) CLIMATE CHANGE IN THE BIBLE: GENESIS – PART 1

What follows is a summary of major climate and environmental changes which were truly caused by man. Our sinfulness and separation from God has wrought judgment on mankind and our surroundings.

DOES GOD CHANGE?

God’s attitude changes toward the repentant sinner precisely because His nature does not change. It is the sinner who changes; not God.

*** ERROR CORRECTED *** ROCKY GRAZIANO ATTRIBUTED HIS SUCCESS IN THE RING TO “SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME.” HE WAS UNAWARE THAT GOD ALLOWS THE PROSPEROUS WICKED OPPORTUNITY TO REPENT

Wicked celebrities who attribute their success as favor from God only add to their judgment in the afterlife.

FEELING GUILTY? MAYBE YOU SHOULD SEE A THEOLOGIAN OR BIBLE-BELIEVING PASTOR INSTEAD OF A PSYCHOLOGIST …

Many Psychotherapists do not understand the human condition as much as they think. Anyone not reconciled to God through Jesus Christ really is guilty, and psychologists are causing immense harm to their patients by trying to talk them out of their guilt.

GERSTNER: FRUITS OF JUSTIFICATION

There is no possibility we can provide a Gospel for ourselves.

PASTORS SHOULD NOT GET DISCOURAGED IF PEOPLE LEAVE THE CHURCH BECAUSE YOU’RE CALLING THEM TO REPENTANCE — IT HAPPENS TO THE BEST OF PREACHERS…

They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.
– 1 John 2:19

JESUS INDULGED IN IRONY AND SARDONIC SARCASM. HE OFTEN USED HYPERBOLE TO DRIVE HIS POINT HOME. JESUS WAS, IN FACT, THE MASTER SATIRIST

Jesus is not coming to judge the world in most people’s view, but that He will restore peace and love is what is emphasized. A Jesus Who threatens an entire city with “you will be brought down to Hades” does not fit the popular Jesus, friend of humanity, who forgives without measure. How could Jesus, the friendly carpenter, who had Abba as His father, judge people for mere transgressions such as coveting a few things on earth, looking at woman and lusting in their hearts for her, or judge people who are genuinely nice but are not enlightened to believe they need a Savior for their minor transgressions (after all no one is perfect).

GERSTNER: MAN THE SINNER

A survey of man as he actually is, not as he thinks he is. We are by nature children of wrath.

GERSTNER: THE JUSTIFIED LIFE

Those who depend on their own good works for salvation have made a mockery of the cross of Jesus Christ.

WOMAN CLAIMS SHE HASN’T SINNED IN TWENTY YEARS!

The next time you recite the Lord’s Prayer, don’t add hypocrisy to the rest of your guilt by asking God to forgive you for debts you can’t acknowledge having …

GERSTNER: WHEN PRAYER IS SIN

Did you know that sin a prerequisite to prayer? You can’t pray in the manner the Lord taught if we do not have any sins to confess.

STOP BLAMING OTHERS FOR YOUR LACK OF PROGRESS …

You don’t need anyone’s permission to be a success in America. Study hard. Work hard. Stop depending on the government to take care of you.

DOES GOD LOVE THE SINNER AND HATE THE SIN?

“God loves the sinner but hates the sin” is a nonsense statement.
