As governments consider policies to fight alleged man-made global warming, evangelical leaders have a responsibility to be well informed, and then to speak out. A Renewed Call to Truth, Prudence, and Protection of the Poor: An Evangelical Examination of the Theology, Science, and Economics of Global Warming demonstrates that many of these proposed policies would destroy jobs and impose trillions of dollars in costs to achieve no net benefits. They could be implemented only by enormous and dangerous expansion of government control over private life. Worst of all, by raising energy prices and hindering economic development, they would slow or stop the rise of the world’s poor out of poverty and so condemn millions to premature death.
I found this Declaration at Dr. E. Calvin Beisner’s CORNWALL ALLIANCE WEBSITE.
I have endorsed this Declaration. The Cornwall Alliance, in my opinion, is the best source of information on this topic from a Christian perspective. I am not posting this for endorsements or financial support. I am posting this because there is a lack of education within Christian circles on this subject.
It’s so interesting where God leads His people. I remember a young Mr. Beisner sitting next to Walter Martin and defending the great truths of the Bible. He was very young back then. He was brilliant then and, again in my opinion, he hasn’t changed and is doing very important work.
Tomorrow I will put up a post about the new movie “Noah.” It comes from the Cornwall Alliance.
