The Monday edition of the Denver Post featured an editorial taken directly from the Washington Post. Apparently the editor of the Denver newspaper was so enamored by what his counterpart in Washington had written he simply cut and pasted the editorial into today's edition. The content of the editorial was quite straightforward. According to at least two editors of significant newspapers in the Socialist Democracy of Amerika, EPA Director Pruitt is an anthropomorphic global warming denier. In other words, he has denied one of the fundamental doctrines of the religion of environmentalism. For that sin he must be crucified. The editorial, along with a cartoon, proceeded to do just that.
I have written enough in other posts to this blog dealing with the irrational and absurd positions taken by the high priests of the religion of global warming. They have much to lose if their devoted following of true believers starts thinking for themselves and coming to conclusions other than those dictated by environmental dogma. I have also described how environmental dogma has cast profit seeking corporations operating in our quasi-free market into the role of Satan. It is the perfect morality play. Satanic businessmen, who are just are seeking to serve the needs and wants of the consumers, are creating capital and engaging in voluntary transactions with the consumers when the messianic state arrives just in the nick of time to protect the mother earth from environmental devastation at the hands of those profit seeking monsters. Perhaps most importantly, all of the activities of the messianic state are funded with taxpayer dollars. By taxpayer dollars I, of course, am referring to just the top 49% of the income population that pays all of the expenses of the federal budget of the SDA.
I would like to leave all of that behind today and write about a true case of denial. Most, if not all, true believers in the religion of global warming are actually in abject denial themselves. In fact, I think a powerful case can be made that true believers in global warming have adopted their religion as a means of denying something that they all know to be true but refuse to admit to be true. That is the essence of denial. One does not deny something that one truly believes to be false. I am not a denier if I truly believe the earth is flat. Only if I know the earth is round but I still persist in asserting that it is flat am I guilty of the sin of denial. Essential to the concept of denial is a prior knowledge of the truth. I can't be called an anthropomorphic global warming denier for the simple fact I do not believe it to be true in the first place. Cases where a person is labeled a denier, despite the fact he does not believe what he is denying to be true, are nothing more than personal attacks designed to bully or force a person into compliance with the stated religious dogmas.
Every person on the face of the earth who is not a Christian is in denial. Every person who is not a Christian, thus making them a God-hater (there is no middle ground) is a denier of the truth about the God of the Bible. Don't believe me? Here is God's opinion on the matter:
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculation, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools..."
There are no exceptions to the rule stated in the biblical passage quoted above. You either acknowledge that the God of the Bible is the one and only true God of the entire universe or you hate Him with a passion. There is no neutral ground. There are no grey areas. Everyone who draws a breath either loves the God of the Bible or hates the God of the Bible. Furthermore, every single person who has ever lived, or ever will live, knows that the God of the Bible exists and has made a moral claim upon their lives. No human being can ever claim ignorance or insufficient information when it comes time to stand before God. Everyone will stand before the judgement seat of Christ and when that happens nobody will be so stupid as to attempt to defend himself by claiming he did not know the God of the Bible existed and had a moral claim against his life.
It therefore necessarily follows that every human being who does not worship, serve, obey and submit to the God of the Bible is in denial of the fact that He exists and has a moral claim upon his life. His will is clear. All men are to repent of their sins and obey him. Those who refuse to repent and obey Him do so because they are denying the fundamental truth that He exists. The real deniers in our world are not those who dispute the dogmatic claims of the religion of global warming. The real deniers in our world are those who hate the God of the Bible with a passion and therefore deny that they know, or can know, that He exists. All non-Christians are actively "suppressing the truth in unrighteousness" every single day. Where is the anger about that truth? Where are the editorials pointing out that truth? I won't hold my breath while I wait for them.
