errors of the earth exploiters . . .

I do not think that it is necessary to go to the Bible to show that Rick Santorum is out of sync with the world; however, as he has decided to discuss what he describes as the radical environmental theology of the President and his attack is coming from his overweening sense of his own religious stature, I think it is apt that some of us (i.e. saner folks) speak against his bs from a biblical perspective. Santorum's attack on President Obama according to an AP report is that the President's theology is a form of radical environmental theology. There is another, cogent, point of view.
President Barack Obama is a Christian. But, better than that, he stands for Christian values. Anyone can call themselves a Christian, but everyone who thumps a Bible and shouts hallelujah is NOT necessarily a Christian. Matthew 7:15 warns us to “watch out for false prophets” and further explains that, “by their fruit you will recognize them”. In other words judge by actions and results.
. . .

Santorum is sadly mistaken and has decided to believe the disinformation of the Republican party, instead of the information that is in the Book that he claims to hold so dear. In Revelations 11:18 the Word reads: “…The time has come for judging the dead,
and for rewarding your servants the prophets…and for destroying those who destroy the earth.” That’s right God said he WILL DESTROY THOSE WHO DESTROY THE EARTH!

Summary: God is environmentalist and will destroy those who destroy the earth.
. . .

I challenge all progressive Christians to call out those who are perverting God’s Word. There are those out there looking for something to believe in and it does our community no good to allow Republicans to usurp Christianity and turn it into this dogmatic, legalistic, paternalistic corruption of the truth!
