Going green is sin!

Actually, that's not surprising considering it's from rapture ready, but really, why do people think it's earth pagan worship to encourage others to plant a tree and recycle? Actually, I think it'd be great if people were to stop littering and put their trash in a garbage can but I guess that's just me being hopeful :/

At least some had the sense to point out that maintenance=/= worship, but really, is it THAT bad to go green every now and then? Or do you think that sitting back and praying will just fix everything?

Personally I'm all for earth day, or rather earth day, every day and I am a Christian. (As a matter of fact I am a big organic person too- I try to grow my own food as does my family) I don't see anything wrong with taking care of the beautiful world around me. Plus, taking of care of the earth benefits not just the earth but everyone else- it's using what we have wisely, how exactly is that wrong. And just for the record, I'm not concerned about the rapture (I'll probably be dead before it ever happens). I am concerned with living my life today.

Just had to put in my two cents. :aww:

Earth Day is part of the environmental/green movement which ultimately is a worship of nature. Christians should have nothing to do with this. That is not to say we should not try to be good stewards, but the environmental movement is ultimately anti-christ.

I've been saying it for quite some time. We need to put the fundies of all religions on a desert island, and put TV cameras there. Best fucking reality show fodder ever.

When I take over the world, in between redecorating Topkapi Palace and accumulating a large harem, I shall have to implement that idea. It'll solve two problems, getting rid of the fundies and entertaining the normal populace. Just imagine it..."This week on Fundy Island, see what happens when Ann Coulter meets Mahmoud Ahmedinejad!"

Under that logic, people shouldn't be allowed to take care of themselves either, less they be pagan "self-worshipers." Therefore, those in favor of that argument shouldn't be allowed to eat, thus starving themselves to death and effectively solving that little problem. :p

So is mine. We've captured trees and put them in the lobby. Now they're slowly dying. I asked my friend why we were holding trees captive and she said it was to protect them from people with chainsaws.

I put the idea into her head that we should take a chainsaw to the trees. :lol:

Rapture Ready is a protestant-based site, and most of the crazy-ass evangelicals like to say catholicism isn't christian. But I won't get into that argument.

Yeah, I won't pretend I understand that belief but I've heard that. I'm vaguely Protestant (Deist/Episcopalian) but that seems rather ridiculous to me. The Mormonism =/= Christianity belief I don't really buy into either, but apparently most people don't consider it a branch of Christianity.

It's people like that who give Christians a bad name. Of course, some would say that all Christians are lousy, so it doesn't matter to them as long as a Christian does something dumb. Personally, I'd say things like recycling and using lower energy lightbulbs are probably things God wants us to do, because He put us on this planet to take care of it, not to take one giant dump on it as humanity has pretty much done. Of course, I'm one of those weird Christians who also likes science and thinks evolution actually happens, so I probably don't qualify for speaking for Protestants/Catholics/etc., although I only had the "etc." because I don't like even numbers, and Protestants and Catholics adds up to an even number...

The Bible wasn't written to be a science textbook, but when it does speak of science;it does a pretty good job of confirming things we already know. For example:The science of 2,000+ years ago said the earth was flat and rested on the back of a large animal. While the Bible says the earth is round and floats free in space. The Bible also tells us that light moves, air has weight, blood is the source of life and health, hands should be washed in running water to prevent disease, and creation is made up of tiny invisible elements.

"The science of 2,000+ years ago said the earth was flat and rested on the back of a large animal."

Nope. That was never science. Science happens when you start using real evidence. Science could be said to have been born around 200BC when Eratosthenes showed that the earth was round, and measured its size with rather impressive accuracy.

"While the Bible says the earth is round and floats free in space."

Does the Bible say the earth is round like a circle or round like a sphere? The fact that it uses the word "circle" is a bit of a giveaway, I'm thinking...
