fundamentalist christians go green
Anyway, there’s your link to the BBC. One thing I don’t like is how they justify it. They want to do it to save the world for the coming generations. Isn’t that a little weak theologically? I think it should be because god said people should be good stewards of what they have been given. Also, they’re really christianey in their statements. We know you’re christians. You don’t have to Jesus weave the word Jesus into every Jesus sentence.
But reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a good thing. Especially when we get cool new technology out of it, like solar hydrogen production and fuel cells that can provide enough power for a car. I like tech. Seriously, I think that if we just sit here, being a source for carbon dioxide, and we take away the carbon dioxide sinks, then there’s definitely an imbalance, and the equilibrium point is going to change. That’s just theory. But it makes sense. Control systems. You change the plant, and if it’s open loop, then your whole system’s screwey. I’m not sure if the world is closed loop. It may be, but it’s a very small feedback.
I’ve decided to put a few… caviats on my post. Firstly, I don’t mean to say that I’m a better christian than they are. As a matter of fact, I’m probably the least in touch with god out of all people claiming to be christians. This means that I don’t really have much of a position to criticize their efforts. I’m glad that they’re doing something. I guess that I just have jesus envy. I mean, why should they be able to hear god’s voice and me not at all? I guess it’s like samuel in “East of Eden.” He says that he has always tried to hear it, but never is able to.
I guess, bottom line is that I’m a sinner. The worst kind of all; I am a hyper-critical hypocrite. And I think of myself as a christian of some sort, but it’s not the noble one. I’m just babbling right now. I want to know god, I really do. I want to be able to say with confidence that I know god personally and deeply. That I know what he wants, that I know I’m covered. jesus help me.
