I am just a sinner who holds fast to the notion that every human being on the planet is the result of a thought of God.

Prophets of the Green God

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.
– 2 Peter:2:1

One of Satan’s best tools in his bag of tricks is the feat of distraction. Now there are many distractions that turn people away from Christ and not all of them reside with the evil one as their point of origin. God gifted humanity with free will. Often times people simply choose of their own accord to move in opposition of good to achieve a self-serving means with no assistance from the devil.

Interesting phenomena to observe are the global distractions in thought that make their way into the mainstream to the point of normalcy. Here, one could posit a diabolic influence. For example, homosexuality has been around since the earliest recorded history; however, it has only been within the last century that it was considered a mainstream way of identifying a class of people. Before a person’s sexual proclivities were just that and nothing more.

Now this is not intended to be a treatise on the goods or evils of same sex attraction. Something influenced humanity to turn its attention and give credence to this existence. What was it? Some will argue that man simply became enlightened; however, this was not a new thing by any stretch of the imagination so it is difficult to understand what was suddenly being imbued with the light of this alleged truth that being gay merited defined benefit within a society. When one considers the terrible consequences of a deconstructed norm of sacramental marriage, then one must consider who would have the biggest motive to see such a change happen.

The latest distraction away from the Divine is the heated debate of global warming. It has become the religion of the elite and every day the mainstream media evangelizes the secular faithful on the manner in which they should conduct themselves and the mores they should possess in order to be true to the goddess, Mother Earth. A glorified PowerPoint presentation narrated by an embittered former Vice President of the United States has become the sacred scripture of this next level of humanity’s self importance. Instead of a golden calf, this cult has an Oscar as its idol of legitimacy. Those who dispute the religion are considered heretical, and while prayer to God is not allowed in public education, the religion of global warming now indoctrinates young minds in the elementary school. An inconvenient truth indeed.

True, protecting the environment is a duty of mankind as God did give humans dominion over the planet. No gift of His should be wantonly wasted. What is disconcerting is the total lack of faith in this argument. The prophets of global warming speak with unshakeable certainty that not only is mankind its cause, but only mankind has the power to affect any real change. It is egocentrism on a global societal scale. This total reliance upon self harkens back to those famous words spoken to Eve:

"You will not die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

This is the genius of Satan. He distracts humanity to the point that it no longer desires God and misleads it into believing that it has the power of God over that which God alone created.

The Devil Wears Prada? No. The Devil wears green.

I work with middle-school students at church, and one of them prayed for an end to global warming last week. A few moments later, I prayed that all of us use discernment when we hear stories in the media, collect facts, and make up our own minds.
Scary that kids are just buying that garbage.
