Christian View of Environmental Stewardship
Genesis 8:22 As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, will never cease. I believe [without evidence] that is the infallible word of God and that’s the way it is going to be for his creation. The earth will end only when God declares its time to be over. Man will not destroy this earth. This earth will not be destroyed by a flood.~ John Shimkus (1958-02-21 age:59) Republican Representative for Illinois, 2009-03 at a House Energy Subcommittee on Energy and Environment hearing.
Even if you take this biblical prediction seriously, it has the loophole of allowing Yahweh the option of merely wiping out billions of humans (and 95% of its species as has happened a number of times before in global extinction events). Mr. Shimkus conveniently ignores that fact this verse contradicts all of Revelation and the end-times prophesies. It also allows Yahweh the loophole of vaporising the entire planet in some cosmic collision.
