Right-Wing Preacher: ‘It is Not Climate Change, It is a Sign That Jesus Is Returning Soon’

Climate change can not possibly be real according to conservative pastor and ‘Hagee Live’  host Matthew Hagee. In fact, any liberal willing to preach such nonsense is not only misguided in his concern for the planet, but he is also going against the word of God.

According to Hagee, nowhere in the Bible does it mention climate change despite the fact it seems to be all liberals and environmentalists want to talk about. As a result, as he explained during his show this week, Christians must make a choice – people can either choose to believe recent dire predictions by the United Nations and Obama’s own study on the impact of global warning in America or people can trust God and God’s word.

When “men are saying things that contradict God’s word,” Hagee counseled, seeming to make the choice obvious to the faithful, “God’s word is accurate and men are wrong.”

He also advised that while the scientists talking climate change are describing changing weather patterns, these smart guys have the reason behind the changing weather observed all wrong.

“The Bible says that whenever we approach the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ that there would be strange weather patterns,” Hagee explained, summoning up a Bible verse to prove his point. “Jesus said this in Matthew the twenty-fifth chapter [a chapter that actually contains three parables].”

He concluded by insisting that Christians now have an important decision to make – either listen to the liberals climate change ‘preaching’ or counter it with their own evangelical message to prepare for Christ’s return.

“Do we believe what an environmentalist group says and choose to live in a world where we’re attempting to make everything as clean in the air as possible,” Hagee asks his conservative audience, “or do we believe what the Bible says, that these things were going to happen and that rather than try to clean up all of the air and solve all of the problems of the world by eliminating factories, we should start to tell people about Jesus Christ who is to return?”

    I much prefer saving mankind’s ability to live on this small planet, than spending eternity in heaven with Hagee and his followers.

    If your entire understanding of climate science can be boiled down to: “The mega-wealthy should be allowed to strip-mine the planet with no restrictions …. then JESUS WILL COME and save us!” you are both unqualified to discuss climate science in any way and are a shockingly poor excuse for a human being.

    I have to hand it to this psychotic for one thing at least: It takes some seriously dedicated doublethink to make protecting the environment sound like an evil thing, a product of the Devil.

    coming from someone whos’ holy book claims that not even the son knows the time of his return, (matt 13:32) i think he put himself in that class of those who are making claims against the word of god. typical hypocrite telling his version of bible stories to those who have never read it.
