Politically Incorrect Thoughts For Earth Day

The following are a few quotes from an article by John MacArthur on the Christian and their responsibility to the environment. A decidedly different take. You can read the full thing here.
The earth we inhabit is not a permanent planet. It is, frankly, a disposable planet--it is going to have a very short life. It's been around six thousand years or so--that's all--and it may last a few thousand more. And then the Lord is going to destroy it.

I've told environmentalists that if they think humanity is wrecking the planet, wait until they see what Jesus does to it. Peter says God is going to literally turn it in on itself in an atomic implosion so that the whole universe goes out of existence (2 Peter 3:7-13).

This earth was never ever intended to be a permanent planet--it is not eternal. We do not have to worry about it being around tens of thousands, or millions, of years from now because God is going to create a new heaven and a new earth.

Understanding those things is important to holding in balance our freedom to use, and responsibility to maintain, the earth.
