Today’s letter is about the Keystone XL pipeline, and the environment.
Many people don’t know this, but Bible specifically addresses oil, and if you understand scripture as completely as I do you know that God fully supports the Keystone Pipeline! Here are a few verses to illuminate my point:
James 5:14 – Are any sick among you? Pray over him, anointing him with OIL in the name of the Lord.
Exodus 30:31-33 – And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall be a HOLY OIL unto me throughout your generations.
Psalms 92:10 – But my horn shalt thou exalt like [the horn of] a unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh OIL.
It’s right there, in the Bible. God-fearing Christians, by which I mean REAL Republicans, must support the Keystone Pipeline!
Liberals, of course, disagree. But as good God-fearing Republicans, we need to stick to our guns: the Bible is God’s unquestionable word, and God’s word is without error, it’s perfectly logical. The Bible’s logic is unlike human logic, it doesn’t work with traditional logical formulations, rather the Bible is God’s holy logic that we finite beings will never fully understand; that’s why we Christians are so humble, because we never truly will know everything – we’ll just come really really really close.
Now, some liberals will try to confuse you by pointing to passages in the Bible that seem to be against doing things that could potentially harm our environment, such as:
Psalms 104: 25-30 – There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small. There the ships go to and fro, and the leviathan, which you formed to frolic there. These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things. When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away their breath, they die and return to the dust. When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth.
Leviticus 25:23-24 – The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. Throughout the country that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land.
Jeremiah 2:7 – I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable.
Isaiah 24:4-6 – The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the exalted of the earth languish. The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.
Revelation 11:18 – The nations were angry; and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your saints and those who reverence your name, both small and great — and for destroying those who destroy the earth.
“Don’t these Biblical passages mean that God wants us to care for the earth?” liberals will ask.
No. Not, they don’t. That’s stupid.
The reality is, if the earth dies, and rivers get polluted, and life dies out… it’s just what God wants. Like Florida Rep. Jeff Miller did, “Our climate will continue to change because of the way God formed the earth.” And as Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said, “The government can’t change the weather” either!
Consider Isaiah 40:8: “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” Maybe God wants the grass to wither and the flowers to all die out! Ever thought of that?
So the environmentalists have it all wrong. God wants us to keep fighting to build that pipe!
