An Inconvenient Lie -- A Convenient Truth

As we are starting to find out, Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" documentary about global warming is really an inconvenient lie. It appears that climate change, formerly known as "global warming" is a fraud. Both conservative and liberal newspapers are now doubting so-called evidence about climate change that would have resulted in massive tax hikes to line the pockets of the climate change alarmists. Yes, we need to embrace energy conservation in the short term and generate more home-grown sources of energy in the long run, but we also need to bury junk global warming science once and for all.

Why make such a point? Do you want to really know "truth"? Even if it is inconvenient? The Bible says we are all sinners and need a Savior. We need to commit our lives to Christ and live the way we were created to live -- as extraordinary Christians. The Bible says Jesus is Truth and there is no other way to have eternal life. That is a truth that the world tries to bury. And sold-out-to-Christ Christians are branded as extremists who are a danger to our society. Why? Because we stand for truth -- real truth.

Truth like all human life is sacred because God created each of us. That includes life in the womb as well as the old and disabled. The intellectuals who promote the culture of death like the political "genius" who referred to some in Congress as "F*****ing retarded" are referred to in Romans 1:22 from the Message when it says: "They pretend to know it all, but are illiterate regarding life." I guess they would call that an inconvenient truth.

Here is the point I am really trying to get across right now. If you don't commit to being a person of God's Word, you will be led down many ways that are really false. Being a Christian requires faith and that faith will only come as you are into His Word. Faith comes by hearing, (taking in) God's Word. Grace is the source of all God's blessings and the path to extraordinary Christian living. And faith is the pipeline that allows us to tap into the unlimited supply of God's grace.

Up North Wisdom says we do not need to let our hearts be troubled or afraid if we are in Christ and His Word is in us. Don't be deceived, my friend. Ask God to give you a great desire for His Word. Commit yourself to embracing His truth and applying it to your life. And remember, for those who do: The Best Is Yet To Come! Believe it!

Now that's what I call "A Convenient Truth."


  1. I heard a similar point made yesterday on Jill Briscoe's "Telling the Truth" broadcast. It is a very significant point, and one that you make very strong and clear. The world may view our position on "forever" or "eternity" as quite narrow, but it's really right there in black and white, isn't it?

    There have been times during conversations with others that I am faced with the question..."aren't you being a bit narrow-minded? I mean, I believe in God and and the Bible and all, but I have my own thoughts on being a good person and getting to heaven."

    And my response to that is always the same...

    "You say you believe in God, and that you believe what the Bible says, but you can't pick and choose the content that is convenient to your lifestyle and throw out the rest! You either believe it, or don't. And if you do...then you have to accept it all as God's Truth. I'm just telling you what the Word says on this topic!"

    It's a hard line sometimes...but delivered with grace and has always been received well.

    As a by-line...your parallel to the reality of global warming is funny to me! James has been poo-pooing this for years, much to the disbelief of the kids who come home from school having just learned about it as "truth." He should get a kick out of this post!

    Great message once again, Pastor!
