Letter to the Editor: God’s environmental plan

With all the spirited huffing and puffing about supposed climate change, as well as the hand wringing of the anxious sea level prognosticators, me-thinks it high time to remind our gentle readers of God’s Environmental Plan, as revealed in the Holy Bible, to wit: to burn the thing up completely! Now that’s a climate change!

Observe, please:

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” II Pet 3:10-12

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” I John 2:15-17

So! In His own time (Mark 13:32), God will wrap things up, destroy the earth completely (see above), decide some eternal judgments (Romans 2:16; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:11-15), and then make NEW heavens and a NEW earth (II Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1) to be populated by the righteous (Revelation chapters 21 and 22).
