Today we have a group of well-meaning, intelligent people who claim that global warming is a fearsome fact and that mere man, by passing some laws, rules and regulations controlling greenhouse emissions, we are going to cool things down. I'm not saying that some of the research that has taken place doesn't indicate that our average worldwide temperature has increased by a couple of degrees. I'm saying that if God, in all His power and wisdom, can't remedy a situation that needs fixing then surely man should re-evaluate his ideas for solutions, at least until the cause and effect have been proven. I think that this whole fiasco easily falls into the category of "Believe it or not."

Another group, just as intelligent but with a different view of things, insist that our couple of degree warmer climate is strictly a result of Mother Nature and her spouse Father Time's way of doing things. This idea is a lot closer to qualifying as truth if we don't forget that these two are also part of God's creation and therefore subservient to His will. Now this we can believe.

Since we know that God doesn't lie, and that he has proven by the act of creating the whole world and everything in it, that he is both wise and all powerful. He constantly lets us know that he is "in charge." We also know that we do not have the privilege of picking and choosing which part of the Bible we want to believe. It seems to me that the solution is simple. All we have to do is put our trust in Him who has the power to remedy this supposed calamity. Then we can with confidence eliminate those two words "or not" and just say "believe it."
