An unbelievable situation prevails among this generation: that which is truth and worthy of full acceptance is denied, and that which is unproven, false, and deserves to be denied is believed. I call this paradox credulous unbelief, for blatant unbelief underlies the problem described above. When people reject the truth, they are bound to believe the lie (2 Thess. 2:10, 11). The world at large contemptuously denies that God’s Word is truth but readily accepts any and every theory of men as truth. Is this not in reality credulous unbelief?
A case in point is man-made global warming. Many co-called experts are trying desperately to save the planet. Even churches are beginning to go green to help reduce carbon emissions. This issue is being decided by politics, not by science, and a credulous society is buying it as truth at great expense to itself and its economy. Yet the Word of God declares that God is the creator of the earth (Gen. 1:1), and as its creator, He is the only One who can destroy it. In fact, both the heavens and the earth are especially reserved for the day of God’s judgment (2 Pet. 3:7; Rev. 20:11-15). Nothing man can do will ever be able to destroy it.
In the words of the Apostle Paul, “For what if some do not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar” (Rom. 3:3, 4). Those who believe the Bible are accused of being closed-minded, but what about a former Vice-President of this country who preaches man-made global warming but will not debate the issue with those who disagree with him? Is he afraid the facts will contradict his theory? Or does he fear his hypocrisy will be further exposed, and the public will learn that he expects others, not himself, to cease the use of all fossil fuels?
