Will carbon tax rectify environmental change? Why does the weather seem out of control? And, can mankind bring correction to the weather by taxing all Canadians or even all the world that would appear guilty before environmentalists?
My personal view is a biblical one. I believe that the one who created everything that exists can also correct the problem that we have created. We, the people of Canada, have through the past years gradually fallen away from our spiritual heritage. Canada was once a nation of people who honoured the Creator. The one we call our God. The God of the Holy Bible. We have gradually pushed him out of our lives and are reaping what we have sown.
It isn’t only our environment that is in crisis. Opioid and other drug addiction have become totally out of control. But building more hospitals will not change those who are allowing drugs to take over their lives. They need help from above. The God who made us loves us. We need to return to him.
This is the scripture which states how God views us and all that we are experiencing. 2 Chronicles 7:14: If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. The God who created our world is the God who can heal and fix what we have broken. He loves us and wants the very best for us. Let’s join together and do what that verse is asking us.
