I’m familiar with a Christian Union notice board in a school. There has been little activity on the notice board for while but I happened to see a full notice board just the other day. There was a large display of ecology materiel that over-spilled right across and covered the Christian Union space.
I have no idea why this is so (there could be a simple explanation) but it seemed an apt illustration of the new religion – planet earth worship. Christian organisations have teaching on caring for the planet. This may not be wrong in and of itself. But, if it displaces the Gospel then it is clearly idolatry. This is nothing new, the apostle Paul writes of this to the Romans chapter 1.
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
We live on an amazing planet, extraordinary in it’s beauty. But this beautiful planet has an extraordinary Creator – let’s give Him the glory and worship Him alone.
This new old religion is becoming more and more prevalent – but it doesn’t save. Only The Lord Jesus Christ can save!
