"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
The Rev. Lennox Yearwood punched his fist in the air as he rhythmically boomed into the microphone: “This is a moment for great leadership. This is a moment for our country to stand up. This is our moment.” But Mr. Yearwood’s audience was not a church. It was the Environmental Protection Agency.
The E.P.A. on Tuesday held the first of two days of public hearings on its proposed regulation to cut carbon pollution from power plants, and mixed in with the coal lobbyists and business executives were conservative religious leaders reasserting their support for President Obama’s environmental policies .…. More than two dozen faith leaders, including evangelicals and conservative Christians, are expected to speak at the E.P.A. headquarters.” Read more: here
The Reverend Yearwood is as much an authentic, God fear reverend as Jeremiah Wright or Al Sharpton.
When you delve into who they are and what the truly believe in, you’ll discover the distorted Shrine of Liberalism. This Yearwood character is a devout Liberal, as are Wright and Sharpton, and I doubt he allows anything to come between his religion and his Leftist ideology — which are one and the same.
Rev. Jeremiah Wright preaches “social justice” which is another term of Socialism and redistribution. The Rev. Sharpton has preached the same but became infamous for his radical redistribution and racist ideology, as a devout Democrat.
Granted, I can’t judge the content of Yearwood’s soul, but I can judge what he says and does and it is not Biblically compliment.
God, the author of the Bible, is clear that the “environment” was created for man, not the other way around. We are to be respectful of it, in so far as we shouldn’t place human excrement in the water we choose to consume. As man eventually learned, that is foolish and unhealthy. But trees, earth and sky are not to be worshiped, but appreciated for what they are — part of our world. Not religious symbols. No Biblically informed preacher, reverend, pastor, teacher or businessman, would support such ill-advised, radical Leftist ideology as Barack Hussein Obama and his leftist controlled EPA have proposed.
Clearly, oil and coal, granite and marble, oxygen and water, meat and vegetables were placed here for man’s use and consumption. Either you believe God is an all-powerful God, who is in control of measly, insignificant man — or he’s some inanimate, uninvolved something or another watching from above, going ‘tsk tsk’ at all we do to “mother earth”. Only the fool believes in the latter.
I feel badly for those who don’t take the Bible literally, as in a 6 day creation, or reject and mock its inerrant Words, as Barack Hussein Obama has done. There are many places for Spiritual interpretation, as there as many place for Literal interpretation . . . and why Christians (and only Christians) can understand and discern the deeper truths of the Word of God. This isn’t a ‘snotty’ nor arrogant approach, it is simply what God Himself devised.
But shame on those proclaiming to be believers in the Word of God who don’t support it’s Truths. I can scold them for being ‘false teachers’ and “leading many astray” but in the end, it is up to the Lord to deal with them in His time and manner. I will speak the truth and tell all such false teachers that they are horribly wrong, in hopes they will seek the ‘light’.
We all must seek God’s Truth, direction and inaccuracies, even in political matters. After all, it is God who set up our system of government. I obey the laws of our land, but not the self-proclaimed ignorance of man, who wish to project their ideology into the Bible.
