Earth Day: A New Religion

solar-energy sunPeace activist John McConnell proposed the first Earth Day on March 21, 1970 (spring equinox), during a UNESCO conference. U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson founded a separate Earth Day that same year, on April 22 – Vladimir Lenin’s 100th birthday. Led by a Communist UN, people have gathered together ever since to celebrate – and worship – the universe. It looks like a new religion! But is it, really? No. Ancient Assyrians, Babylonians, Canaanites, Egyptians, Mayans, Sumerians, and other polytheistic peoples worshipped natural elements – sun, moon, stars, animals, trees, water, wind, and fire. But they didn’t know the Jehovah God who created all these things (Genesis 1-2).

Forty-five hundred years have passed since the flood and the ungodly civilizations that followed it (Genesis 8-11). Yet little has changed. Thanks to Earth Day, people are still “worshipping and serving [creation] rather than the Creator” (Romans 1:25).[1] Feeding on the ashes of atheism and tolerance, a “deceived heart has turned” them away from the truth of Jesus Christ (Isaiah 44:20). They have exchanged it for Satan’s lies (Romans 1:25).

Do you want to celebrate Earth Day, ungodly sinners? I’ll give you a holiday, Bible style!

  • “Cursed is the ground for your sake.” (Genesis 3:17)
  • “Keep my statutes and my judgments … lest the land vomit you out … when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you.” (Leviticus 18:26, 28)
  • “I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood, fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.” (Joel 2:30-31)
  • “The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)
  • “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.” (Matthew 24:35)
  • “Since the creation of the world [God’s] invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead, so that [people] are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)
  • “The heavens and the earth … are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise and the elements will melt with fervent heat. Both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.” (2 Peter 3:7, 10)
  • “I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.” (Revelation 21:1)

  1. Leviticus 18:28 “land vomit you out” HOWEVER, the VAST MAJORITY of Leviticus 18 spoke of the people defiling themselves with sexual immorality. The entire chapter is summed up as the following, Sexual immorality defiles man, which leads to the defilement of the land. Earth Day fanatics ALWAY leave the part of scripture out. Search Defile and Earth…and you will 90% of the time see corruptness of man being discussed including sexual and or violence. Reject Christ in your city or country (abortion, homosexuality, Christ is not God, etc)…your land will reject you as the Bible says it will, as demonstrated across the World today.
