Al Gore: The False Prophet
Almost since he gained the spotlight Al Gore has been declaring an emergency concerning the environment: specifically the ‘fact’ that we humans are going to destroy the world. According to Mr. Gore, we are releasing ‘greenhouse gasses’ that are going to gradually heat up the planet to the point that all life will become extinct.
Now you must understand what is behind such thinking. Al Gore, who dropped out of Divinity School for whatever reason, is obviously a Darwinian Evolutionist. He has to be to make such declarations. Now Christianity and Darwinian doctrine are eternal opposites. They are incompatible in every sense of the word for the Evolutionist/environmentalist believes that everything sprang from nothing.
You’ve heard of the “Big Bang” theory! I might put in here that a theory is basically somebody’s best guess. So some scientists who cannot stand the thought of there being a God somewhere to whom they must give an account, got together and decided to create a scenario in which life just ‘happened.’ It is interesting to examine the scenario. Now scientists will use big words and technical phraseology to try to bamboozle you into believing their idea.
But here is the scenario as perpetrated by the scientific community. Basically there was nothing. But suddenly some gas appeared. Then it began to swirl around in separate maelstroms, moving faster and faster. And then everything exploded and the gas became solid masses that were super-heated. The masses slowed down over a span of time and one of them remained real hot while the others cooled and began to suddenly orbit the hot mass. As things cooled down a cell formed all by itself (some scientists say that lightning struck a mud puddle while others say that space men came by and dropped off a self replicating cell) and this cell began to spontaneously reproduce itself.
Now obviously some things had to mutate because we have quite a variety of life forms on this planet. I remember in science class at school how there was a picture of a whale skeleton in which there were these “mysterious” bones toward the tail fin. These bones, they said, were the remnants of rear legs for one day a land animal decided that it would like to live in the water and so it began to spend time out in the ocean. Soon its legs took on the shape of fins and the rear legs disappeared. Their noses moved to the top of their heads and voila, you’ve got a whale.
The key term here is “Accidental.” Darwinian Environmentalists believe that everything we see and know is the result of a series of accidents. In fact the Big Bang was really a big accident according to the scientific community. This is the ‘theology’ of Al Gore and as I said, it is totally incompatible with Biblical Theology. Al Gore’s god is Mother Nature, a non-existent figment of someone’s fertile imagination. And according to Al, his god is in trouble.
Now compare this to the biblical account of creation which is found in the book of Genesis chapter 1. “ In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day. 6 Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. 8 God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9 Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them”; and it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 There was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.” 21 God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day. 24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so. 25 God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30 and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so. 31God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
You will note in the biblical account that there were no accidents but that all life was created exactly as God intended.
Now here is the difference between Al Gore’s version of creation and the biblical account. In Mr. Gore’s estimation 0+0 =everything we see and know. Something came from nothing! I would love to see this replicated in the Laboratory for true science is just that. You observe something. You take it to the lab and then you recreate what you observe so as to get a thorough understanding of the subject. But there is no way to create something from nothing.
On the other hand, the biblical account states clearly that there is an eternal God who created all things by His omnipotent power. Which one is more logical.
Now lets move on to Mr. Gore’s Doomsday Scenario. He states that we are rapidly approaching the point of no return when we will have done too much damage to fix the problem. I ask “What Problem?” He states that the earth is going to burn up because of our use of fossil fuels. And this is based on a ‘model’ that more than likely is the result of the 30 year drought we have been experiencing.
During the 70’s you could set your watch to the change in the weather. You knew when the summer monsoons would start and when they would finish. You knew when the winter rain and snow was coming and when it would end. The spring rains etc. Then in 1980 the waterworks shut off. We had a few large floods but they were the exception for the temperature did heat up to the point that we had a temperature of 125 in Phoenix in 1990 or so. Enter Al Gore.
Basically he is an opportunist playing on the fears of those who are just too gullible to check things out for themselves. Al’s scenario states that the planet will gradually heat up and then all life will cease to exist. But unfortunately for him the planet is beginning to go back into the cool cycle. This of course is no problem for an opportunist for all he has to do is change is title from ‘Global Warming’ to ‘Climate Change.’ Do you want to know how stupid this is? The climate changes every day. One day its warm and the next day its cool.
Now for the biblical version!
God spoke the world into existence and God will speak it out of existence on the appointed day. 2Pe 3:10 “But when the Day of God’s Judgment does come, it will be unannounced, like a thief. The sky will collapse with a thunderous bang, everything disintegrating in a huge conflagration, earth and all its works exposed to the scrutiny of Judgment.” You see, the end of the world will not be a gradual process much like the evolutionary process that is said to have resulted in all we see and know. Instead it will be sudden. We did not have a hand in creating the world and we will not have a hand in destroying it. The arrogance of the Global Warming crowd is stunning. But it is no more arrogant than to deny God so you can live like you want. Consider this statement: “The God who made the world and everything in it––He is Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in shrines made by hands. 25 Neither is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives everyone life and breath and all things. 26 From one man He has made every nation of men to live all over the earth and has determined their appointed times and the boundaries of where they live, 27 so that they might seek God, and perhaps they might reach out and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. 28 For in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ 29 Being God’s offspring, then, we shouldn’t think that the divine nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image fashioned by human art and imagination. 30 “Therefore, having overlooked the times of ignorance, God now commands all people everywhere to repent, 31 because He has set a day on which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by the Man He has appointed. He has provided proof of this to everyone by raising Him from the dead.” Acts 17:24-31
Do you want to have something to fear; fear God! He not only created the world but He will destroy the world. And He has laid down His law. They are not the “Ten Suggestions” that everyone would like them to be but they are the Ten Commandments! How do you measure up to Gods standard of Holiness and righteousness? Were you to stand before God today what would you say to Him? You are real good at making excuses now as to why you will not believe in Him: why you will not obey Him!
Today is the day of salvation and Al Gore isn’t the go-to guy. Neither is President Obama. He will not be able to help you on the Day of Judgment when we must all give an account to God for they too will be standing before the Great White Throne. You say “I don’t believe in God or a Day of Judgment.” That doesn’t really matter now does it! I could ask you if you believe in air. I’m sure you would say yes. But can you see it? No. You feel its effects as you take a breath but you can’t grasp hold of it can you! Consider that as you look around you see the handiwork of God who spoke all things into existence and will one day speak everything out of existence.
Today is a day of grace and I ask you to consider whether you will trust in Mr. Gore, or God Almighty. Would you put your trust in a man whose statements are false or will you trust God who cannot lie! Then end is coming and even now the end of the world happens for men and women every day as they die and the bible says that it is appointed unto men to die once and after that to face judgment. And the God who created you has spoken in the Bible saying, “Turn, Turn, for why will you die?” Today He is holding out His hand to this world full of stiff-necked and obstinate people. Today He calls to sinners (law breakers) saying; “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Mt 11:28
The end of the world will come and sooner than you think. Will you take your eyes off of false prophets and look to Someone who can actually save you. My prayer is that you will hear the truth I have spoken, see the falsehood, heed the warnings and accept the invitation of God Himself!
