But at the root of all the false thinking associated with Earth Day—and environmentalism generally—is a fundamental error.
It's the error of thinking of human beings more as consumers than as producers, more as exploiters than as stewards, more as animals than as the crown of creation, made in the image of God.
"He has trouble understanding that other countries have national interests," he said. "And they do want to dominate other countries. He said that's not how people act in this century. It is how people act in this century, and every century back to the Stone Age."
Last weekend Obama said Putin is not acting in Russia's interests. "Does he not understand that he's actually instructing the Russians on what's in their national interest?" Krauthammer asked.
David Kupelian warns Republicans about those radioactive 'social issues'
At the very same time, however, we're being told by Republicans across the board – that is, by the moneyed GOP establishment, by Republican advisers and strategists, and by calculating moderates comfortably nestled in Washington's elite society, but also by "libertarian-leaning conservatives" and even by many tea-party spokesmen – that the key to victory is to keep away from those divisive "social issues" that alienate voters.

Ray Comfort's 30-minute Noah—And the Last Days, produced to coincide with Hollywood's controversial Noah, reached 1 million YouTube views in 23 days, this week won a Telly Award and is being aired on 14 major TV networks.
Comfort says, "When I saw that Hollywood had originally listed their version as fantasy, I felt compelled to produce something that would show that the story of Noah is an historical fact, despite what the mockers believe.

However, most of Gothard's statement focuses not the harassment claims, but on having put his ministry above the needs of the people who served it. Gothard expresses repentance and his desire for reconciliation.
"I put the Institute and its goals ahead of people and their needs," admits Gothard, later writing, "More than anything I want to make right what I have done wrong and deepen my relationship with the Lord.

Our first promise of victory is the Rapture of the Church. This is an event that is often confused with the Second Coming, but they are not the same. A careful study of the Scriptures reveals that the return of Jesus is going to be in two stages: first the Rapture, and then the Second Coming.
The fact that these two are separate events can easily be demonstrated.
Where are the hearts of the fathers as children are deceived?
"This is a test. This is only a test. Had this been a real child-endangering emergency, where children are taught to hate Christians, embrace sodomy and praise sexual anarchy, you would be alerted through the Emergency Broadcast System for Responsible Parents. Then you could act to save your kids!"
And of course, America's conservative parents would do that...wouldn't they?
On April 18th, Rasmussen Reports released a poll showing 37 percent "of likely U.S. voters now fear the federal government." 47 percent of respondents said they do not, and "17 percent are not sure."

The number of Christians in Communist China is growing so steadily that it by 2030 it could have more churchgoers than America
It is said to be China's biggest church and on Easter Sunday thousands of worshippers will flock to this Asian mega-temple to pledge their allegiance – not to the Communist Party, but to the Cross.
The 5,000-capacity Liushi church, which boasts more than twice as many seats as Westminster Abbey and a 206ft crucifix that can be seen for miles around, opened last year with one theologian declaring it a "miracle that such a small town was able to build such a grand church".
