"And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day," Genesis 1:31.
To the modern environmentalist, yes, CO2 is evil. Not only is it evil, it is the original sin. It is the sin we must all atone for and repent of. It is the cause of hotter air, colder air, horrific storms, a lack of horrific storms, earthquakes, landslides, etc., etc. It is put out by aerosol cans, automobiles, jets and, even, our very bodies as we exhale all day long! It is our evil secretion and for that, man is evil and needs to offset his sin with many different sacrifices.
God on the other hand, is quite amused by this. His word tells us that he was pleased with all His creation when He was finished. A creation that included the stars, planets and everything else in the heavens. It included the seas, plains mountains and everything else on earth. It included plants, animals and God's crowing creation, man. It also included CO2 and God was well pleased with it also. Even though our sin threw us and all creation into a cycle of sin and imperfection, we are still made in God's image and His design for us is still good.
God provides for our sin through His son Jesus Christ. We are to confess our sins to Him who knew no sin but became sin for us. If we confess our sins and repent of our sins, Christ will forgive us and we are reconciled to God for time and for all eternity. Environmentalists have a different system. Your evil, your carbon emissions, must be atoned for, or at least offset. You can buy favor, or make indulgences, to cover the wickedness of your carbon emissions. If you do this, as the priest(EPA bureaucrat's) prescribes you are temporarily absolved of your sin. This is temporary, it must be repeated over and over and there is no assurance of salvation. You are required to constantly consider your carbon emissions and confess to the priest as often as allowed. Only death spares you from one more carbon credit!
Christ on the other hand, loves our carbon emissions. He came that we may have life and live it to the full for Him! His word is replete with promises of long, joyful life if we love Him and His word. He has the words of life and His Spirit even intercedes for us when we do not know what to say to God. His sacrifice is once for all. We need to never make another sacrifice ever! In fact, His last carbon emission on the Cross says it all, "It is finished!"
Brethren, learn, live and love the Gospel!
