The Latest Testament: Messages to America

The people who disregard the Biblical directive of human stewardship of the planet encourage the destruction of natural lands for the extraction of oil.  In order for them to see the error of their ways God allowed the BP oil spill in the gulf so that the people would see how dangerous their sin was.  They didn’t listen.

When the people preached a doctrine of hate and fear and intolerance in complete contrast to the teachings of Jesus Christ, God allowed an innocent woman to be martyred to show the people the errors of their words.  They didn’t listen.  Thankfully she was allowed to live.

When the people continued to ignore God’s demand that mankind be the keeper of His garden, he sent an earthquake to reveal the dangers of nuclear power.  The people still do not listen.

For those who believe these events are sent by God: you are right.  For those who believe these events are the beginning of the end of the world: you are wrong.  Change your ways and listen to the Lord.

God has provided everything for men to survive.  The benevolent sun offers life and energy to everything on the planet.  Men need nothing other than the sun to power their lives.  Men need nothing more than the son to guide their lives.  God has given mankind everything.  The sun offers power.  The son offers peace.

    This sermon is very reminiscent of Mark Twain’s “The War Prayer.” The last sentence of the short story is: “It was believed afterward that the man was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what he said. ” It is frightening that people do not allow themselves to listen or understand others when they feel even remotely threatened. The ability to listen, discuss, and perhaps even acquiesce is a skill too many lack.
    It is also alarming that church officials have so much sway over their congregations. Far too often this sway is used to reinforce close-minded ideas that the earth was made for humans to abuse, desecrate, and essentially destroy. If church leaders were presenting sermons like the one above rather than creeds filled with hate, fear, and ignorance, many would cease dismissing people like you as “lunatics,” and begin to open themselves up to true stewardship of the planet. To effect a change, must we begin with the people, or the pundits?

  2. The woman referred to in the second paragraph is Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, just to be clear.
