I saw a cartoon in the “Columbus Dispatch” (6.5.201) that represents a “tweet” (mocking President Trump’s tweets on his Twitter account); it reads: “Children, I gave you life – you gave me climate change and a world leader who wants to bring me death. Is this how you treat your mother? Very upset bigly. Signed ‘Mother Earth.’” The hash-tag to this political cartoon is DJTHasnotAClue.
The cartoon is a mockery of the president (one’s thinking about the president is not the point of this article), but I want to suggest there is a mockery of One that is far more serious.
The mocking cartoon with the climate change message is part and parcel of paganism! Paganism is defined as a polytheistic way of thinking, a religion of sensuality, delight in material goods. Polytheistic ways of thinking that is a collection of various spiritual and materialistic ideas wrapped into one wherein a person chooses to live by its influences.
Is it truly the case “mother earth” gave life? Who is mother earth?
“Mother earth” is an evolutionary religious thought/ideology to the core, a way of thinking and a philosophy of life that looks on man as both the created (by mother earth) and destroyer of the environment (mother earth) in which he lives (how does “father time” plays into this).
Can the created (human beings) bring death to the earth as ascribed in this mockery tweet? Who is it that will bring this earth and life to an end? Are we to believe that it is actually a paganistic evolutionary religious philosophy that will accomplish this? If you listen to the many speakers in today’s environment we are.
On the other hand, why not hear what the Lord said:
“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” (2 Peter 3:10, KJV).
A different translation reads this way:
“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief; when it comes, the heavens will disappear with a horrific noise, and the celestial bodies will melt away in a blaze, and the earth and every deed done on it will be laid bare” (NET).
Perhaps the president does not have a clue about this or that, but does the originator of this mockery tweet have any more of a clue? RT
