The first “Earth Day” was April 22, 1970. Its Founder, then-Senator Gaylord Nelson said: “if we could tap into the environmental concerns of the general public and infuse the student anti-war energy into the environmental cause, we could generate a demonstration that would force this issue onto the political agenda.” In 2000, it became an international campaign, focused on global warming and clean energy alternatives. How arrogant are humans who claim they can “save the world?” The Earth is not ours to save. It was “the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them” (Acts 14:15 NKJV). Solomon said, “One generation passes away, and another generation comes; But the earth abides forever” (Ecclesiastes 1:4 NKJV). The Earth doesn’t need saving, but people do! Jesus said: “He who believes and is baptized will be saved (Mark 16:16 NKJV).
