An Inconvenient Truth

Al Gore has it right. It IS an inconvenient truth.

Right title. Wrong subject.

Global warming is a distraction. Not that we shouldn't care about our environment! We should. I was a great fan of the weeping Indian in the '70s commercial. Remember that one? He as standing by a stream littered with garbage.

Gore's movie, for whatever reason, has an agenda. He's not interested in presenting both sides of the Global Warming aisle. He wants us to believe it's happening, hands down, no doubt. But there is as much evidence that global warming is cyclical as whatever evidence Gore presents in his movie.

But I'm not really interested in discussing global warming here.

I want to discuss the REAL inconvenient truth.

And that's the God-Man, Jesus, the Christ.

What the world REALLY doesn't want to face and deal with is who this Man says He is - the Savior. He is Lord.

He's quoted saying the following things:

"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

" I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

"For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

So here's what we have to ask ourselves. Is He for real or not? Is the Jesus, a supposed great prophet, lying? Is He a lunatic?

Or, is He who He says He is? Is He the God who left the splendor of Heaven to take on the form of Man (for ALL eternity) and then give His life for our salvation. For our sins.

Did He really allow God the Father to put the sins of the world on Him?

History says He did.

The truth is, and it's inconvenient to atheists, agnostics, other religions, but Jesus is Lord. We all have to decide this. We have to face Him, look at His life and wonder, "Do I need to believe."

Look. Most religions are about mankind become like God. Mankind appeasing God. Or mankind making a way to God.

Belief in Jesus is the exact opposite. God becoming mankind (His creation), God appeasing Himself WITH Himself, and God making a way for mankind to come to Him.

All we have to do is believe an inconvenient truth - Jesus is Lord.

Al Gore's movie is asking us to believe an inconvenient truth that has less evidence than the life and sacrifice of Jesus.

It takes more faith to believe what Gore's put on celluloid than to pick up a Bible, ask for understand and read a couple of the Gospels.

Are you determined to believe an inconvenient truth?

Believe in Jesus.
