LOL...same goes for you, honey.

God never told us to be out cleaning the world, picking up trash or what not, but he did tell us to get busy for him... spreading his word and feeding his sheep (meaning people not actual sheep).
I never said go pick up trash. What a waste of time, where are you going to put it.
Why not just dont make it in the first place.
I wonder what your house is like then. You just cant even see what you do matters to God. Shame on you.

Also you dont seem to understand what a refiners fire is.

God had established a covenant, not just with Noah, but with every beast of the earth, no more destuction with a flood. You think He doesnt care? Hmmm, so everytime you see a rainbow, you dont remmeber this covenant I suppose. Which is everlasting. Okaaay.

Check out genesis 8:21
If you don't want to take my word for it maybe you will listen to Peter....
2 Peter 3
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Actually a few did. It wasnt just for jews it was for israelites. I see your entire theology is rather twisted just by that statement. GOd did promise land to abrahams descendants right?

As far as I know the land is still there....
I never said will be saved either, days theough him might be saved. Because guess whos going to look after the land and everything when He makes everything new. Believers! Will he allow anyone who pollutes and defiles to enter in? Nope.

And how will He know this, why by our actions now. So if you are of the mindset it doesnt matter to God what you do on this earth, and how you treat others, think again.
I was willing to entertain your thoughts. I'm sorry but your whole theory has fell apart. I asked you to back it up with scriptures and you cannot. So now you're trying to twist it and say what if this what if that...Sorry that don't cut it. Bring me some scripture or there's no need posting to me about it....Just saying.

Lol...I don't pollute the earth. Just because I know this earth will be destroyed doesn't mean I'm out polluting it.... keep twisting things around and hashing out little snide remarks, though. I guess, that's all you've got to do since you don't have any scriptures to back what your saying up....


Oh and Refiners fire is for your soul...It is not for the earth.

When people go on missions to really poor countries, one of the first things they do is put in a well so they can have fresh, clean drinking water. They dont bring all their junk from homelands just what is essential and they learn to do without all the stuff that they would need to import all the time.

Some of these countries are devasted by war etc and their land has been defiled, and its really polluted. They also learn how to grow their own food ao they can have fresh vegetables and fruit. Otheriwse they would have to buy everything. Missionaries who know how to care for creation then can go about setting up sustainable villages. And by doing so, the gospel spreads too. There is never any question of either/ or, its both. Showing you care for creation shows also demonstrates the gospel. People that have nursing skills, are also valuable. Some people have never had their wellbeing cared for until they meet a nurse whos dedicated tothe task.

Paul also said he was gentle with the gentiles, like a nurse, when preaching the gospel, he really cared for his people too, its just common sense. He didnt go and trash all the places he went to.
