God's Answer to Environmentalism
TEXT: Romans 1:18-23, "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things."
In this passage of Scripture, we find man in complete rebellion against God. The reason? In his sinful condition, he is unwilling to acknowledge God. God is righteous; man is unrighteous. However, man's condition can be changed. If he is willing to turn to God and seek forgiveness, God will forgive him and change his heart.
In Ezekiel 36:26, the Lord promised: "A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh." However, rather than turn to God, man turns inward; he becomes his own god. This is called "Humanism."
QUOTE: Quoting from the American Humanist Association, we read, "Though we consider the religious forms and ideas of our fathers no longer adequate, the quest for the good life is still the central task for mankind. Man is at last becoming aware that he alone is responsible for the realization of the world of his dreams, that he has within himself the power for its achievement. He must set intelligence and will to the task."1
