Q. I have a friend who is very liberal and we are always talking about coal. He of course is against it and I am for it. His latest question to me is this ” what do you think God thinks when he looks down and sees us destroying his creation?” So what could I tell him?
A. You can tell him that for all practical purposes the creation was destroyed when Adam and Eve disobeyed in the Garden and brought sin into the world (Genesis 3:17-19, Romans 8:19-21). Since then God has always planned to restore Earth to its original condition, but had to take care of the sin problem first. The restoration of all things will take place at the 2nd Coming (Matt. 19:28, Acts 3:19-21, Rev. 21:1, and a dozen or so verses in the Old Testament).
One reason God gave us the Bible is so we could know what the future holds. People who don’t realize this miss out on all the promises He made that there will be a happy ending. Man will not be permitted to ruin everything.
