Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Barry. We wrote about one of his letters a couple of months ago — see #940: Dealing with the Devil. Excerpts from his latest letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
Why do I not believe in global warming? [Why?] I have it on the word of one who is greater than all scientists that man cannot destroy this planet.
Ooooooooooooh! Then he gives us his evidence:
God says in II Peter 3:5-7: “For this they (people) willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth, which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”
Barry believes that clearly settles the matter, but for those too ignorant to understand it, he explains:
God spoke the whole of creation into existence [Right!], and by that word destroyed all but eight people in Noah’s flood. [Right again!] This present world is now preserved by God’s word until his day of judgment, when he himself will destroy this world by fire.
That clarifies the issue. He continues:
Many scientists are God-haters, [Gasp!] denying his existence, though they see his glory in the intricate beauty of his creation. [They see but don’t understand!] They worship nature and created things as do many people. God calls them fools. (Romans 1:22) Humanistic-evolution is their religion.
Is Barry talking about you, dear reader? Let’s read on:
To you who support a woman’s right to choose, God says, “These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood …” (Proverbs 6:16-17)
The letter ends with good news, and also bad news:
Abortion sheds innocent blood. Repent and God mercifully forgives. You ignore God’s word at your own peril.
Barry has given you much to think about, dear reader, and your decision will have eternal consequences.
