Evangelicals 'Coming Around' to Evidence for Global Warming, Professor Says
Mark McReynolds, assistant professor of Environmental Science at Biola University, said, "Evangelicals, like the rest of our society, are coming around to the real evidence of global climate change. It is a big, complicated topic, with many implications for us in the U.S."
"Climate scientists are in near unanimity that the evidence speaks loudly for human-caused climate change and the general public is slowly understanding the issue and its implications."
McReynolds' remarks come as Biola University prepares for a series of events to observe Earth Day next week. Titled "Creation Stewardship Week," the events from April 23 to 27 include participation in the Global Day of Prayer for Creation Care, a tour of the faculty-student run Biola Organic Garden, and the screening of the film "No Impact Man," which is about a family that tries to live a lifestyle without high environmental impact....

The only warming we as Christians, should be concerned about is everlasting warming.. We should be in the business, of preaching to lost sinners, not worried about, a world that will pass away. Luke8:1 1 Timothy 6
20O Timothy, guard that which is committed unto thee, turning away from the profane babblings and oppositions of the knowledge which is falsely so called; 21which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Preach Christ!!
taking care of the earth is important. but reducing world population (eugenicx), pushing gm foods and pesticides and other chemicals while proposing global taxes on all mankind has nothing to do with saving the environment. many warmers will realize this too late.
I'm with mike. It is pure arrogance on our part to think that we even have the ability to destroy the earth. Our part is to preach the gospel. God will take care of the rest. I wonder what the environmental effects of 2 Peter 3:7 are?
Jim. We do have a BIG ISSUE... Its called SIN. God has called us to more important issues.. Like the Great Commision. One day, we will have a New Heaven and Earth. This is not it.. Are job, and main goal, Is to preach Christ, to ALL the world. Clean air, global warming... Secondary. We will stand before a Soveriegn, and Almighty GOD one day, and have to give an account. And I don't think HE will be Concerned about clean air, and pollution. Only the pollution, that came from us, and what we did for HIm.
There is no reason, for a Christian not to be wise in the conservation of God's natural world. You don't even have to agree with the comments about global warming. The removal of smog in Los Angeles and other types of air pollution around this country can't go unnoticed. The same can be said with the removal of coal burning in London.
I'm not even against their use of coal as some people are, but a sensible measures to stop air pollution by coal plants, there is nothing wrong with that. The majors don't have to be so draconian to destroy the coal industry or the power plants that depend on them.I would never support a "Green Party," but perhaps some organization like the nature Conservancy isn't too radical?
An evangelical wrote: I, for the record, am an evangelical and I'm not coming around to this nonsense. Maybe we should be more concerned with spreading the Gospel and let God handle taking care of the climate.
