The EVO-ECO Gospel Leads to Human Misery Guests: Doug Sharp, Rich Geer, Dan Janzen Description: The Green Evo-Eco Gospel and Creation Care has consequences.The elements that are not in agreement with the Bible, when they run their full course, will bring oppression to the world. Falsehood and sin and wrong worldviews always in the long run produce oppression.

Here are the litmus test questions….

Are you more concerned about savings “species” than about the issue of abortion?
Do you prefer to use such expressions as “Mother Nature”, “Nature knows best”, “ask Nature for guidance”, “connect to the Earth”, “reintegrate with Nature”, “sacred Earth”, “sacred Creatures”?

Do you have a works-based salvation of allegiance to specific environmental issues chosen by environmentalist elitists?

Do you invest more time with climate change or global warming issues than in evangelism and discipleship?

Do you spend more time teaching people to repent of “environmental sins” than teaching people to repent of the whole range of sins outlined in the Bible?

Would you rather see mankind at a parallel level with all other creatures or worse as an alien or a destructive latecomer in evolution than a special creation of God-given responsibility to transform the earth to bring flourishing to mankind and good stewardship or management to the earth?

Are you more interested in being connected to the earth, serving the earth, and considering it sacred than you are about connected to God and serving God and considering the things written in the Bible sacred?

Do you think that the world is overpopulated and we need to reduce population and we should cut back on our use of resources since we are running out of resources (Malthusianism)?

Is human service to other creatures or restoring the earth to a pristine environmental state the central focus of your existence on earth?

Are you more interested in the theology of Christian mystics and indigenous people’s animistic theology than in theology that promotes the Bible as wholly “inspired and profitable for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness” 2 Tim. 3:16?

Do you emphasize the “serving” interpretation of Gen.2:15 to the exclusion of tending, working, cultivating/tilling meaning of the same words in Gen. 2:15 and would rather not reference the managing, reigning, ruling, subduing, controlling, dominion words of Gen. 1:28 which further clarifies our role as transforming our environment to bring flourishing to mankind and good management to the creatures both?

Do you want to push for expansion of the wilderness and wilds and people pushed into cities to give hands-off to the countryside?

Do you have a calloused response when you discover that people are paying higher electricity costs as a result of renewable energy and the poorest of the poor are the most adversely affected?

Are you disinterested when someone explains that CO2’s ability to heat the earth is logarithmic or a diminishing curve and unwilling to consider evidence that we may be approaching the top of the curve?

Are you disinterested when someone explains that the satellite studies all show the earth has greened appreciably in the last 30 years and only 5% of the world shows signs of browning with over 40% showing clear signs of very significant improvement of leaf area index?

Are you disinterested when someone points out that many glaciers all over the world when retreating are leaving large numbers of exposed tree stumps meaning that the earth was significantly warmer in the past? And fail to be interested in additional research to look at other historical evidence of more significant warming in the past such as elevated tree lines, the latitude of grape production in Europe, grain production in Iceland and Greenland, latitudes of ocean fisheries locations?

These are all signs that you may have adopted some of the tenants of the “Green Gospel” of worshipping the “creature rather than the Creator” (Rom. 1:25) and you are on the slippery slope.

In the US a study revealed that only 6% of adults have a Christian worldview. Should it come as a surprise that many of us have adopted some non-Christian worldview ideas?
