The Environmental Movement - What can we do? - John Van Sloten
July 08, 2007
|Amazing what happened yesterday, the biggest entertainment event that we have ever had on this planet. Never has the environment been so front and center as it is now. Global warming has become the most important thing to talk about. The question is why?
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life,
bright as crystal, cascading from the throne of God and the Lamb through the middle of the gardened city.
On the banks, on both sides of this azure-pure river, grew trees.
From seeds sown from the very tree of life, this flourishing forest, well watered and leaf-full, produced twelve kinds of fruit, one for each month—sustenance the year around.
And the leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nations.
No more trees felled for battering rams to lay siege to cities.
No more trees cut to make sailing masts for warships.
No more trees pulped for paper propaganda to fuel the fires of human hate and ethnic cleansing.
These trees are for life.
The healing of the nations.
And in this city, on this heavenly earth, the curse will be no more.
The weight of inherited sorrow will be lifted.
The taint of sin washed clean by the blood of the Lamb.
And the servants of the Lamb will worship God.
And they will see God face to face.
And God’s name will be on their foreheads, marked as God’s own forever.
And the Lord God himself will be their light.
And they will reign with God forever and ever!
