“But the king shall rejoice in God;
Everyone who swears by Him shall glory;
But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.”
We are inspired to press forward in the International Church Council Project because Jesus Christ rules from God’s right hand (Hebrews 10:12, 13) and is, even now, subduing his enemies and stopping the mouths of those who speak lies. ICCP clarifies truth, thus giving the Church weaponry and shield in the warfare she is destined to win. God has not only destined victory, but also the means by which she attains victory. We trust that these labors will be used by God in the Church’s forward march.
Dr. E. Calvin Beisner is the primary author of ICCP document twenty-four – The Biblical Perspective of Environmental Stewardship: Subduing and Ruling the Earth to the Glory of God and the Benefit of Our Neighbors.
Dr. Beisner writes:
“… “global warming alarmism”—fails the tests of theology, science, and economics. It rests on poor theology, with a worldview of the Earth and its climate system contrary to that taught in the Bible. It rests on poor science that confuses theory with observation, computer models with reality, and model results with evidence, all while ignoring the lessons of climate history. It rests on poor economics, failing to do reasonable cost/benefit analysis, ignoring or underestimating the costs of reducing fossil fuel use while exaggerating the benefits. And it bears fruit in unethical policy that would: destroy millions of jobs; cost trillions of dollars in lost economic production; slow, stop, or reverse economic growth; reduce the standard of living for all but the elite few who are well positioned to benefit from laws that unfairly advantage them at the expense of most businesses and all consumers; endanger liberty by putting vast new powers over private, social, and market life in the hands of national and international governments; condemn the world’s poor to generations of continued misery characterized by rampant disease and premature death. In return for all these sacrifices, what will the world get? At most a negligible, undetectable reduction in global average temperature a hundred years from now.”
Document twenty-four, The Biblical Perspective of Environmental Stewardship is available in two formats: a downloadable pamphlet (prints double-sided to legal size paper) and from the document twenty-four page on this website.
