On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (04/30/19), Hank discusses climate change after watching Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke claim that humans may have only 10 years left to save the planet. Hank likens this to former Vice President Al Gore, who in 2006 made a similar claim. But ten years later in 2016, we saw that Gore was wrong. In 1992 Gore said that only an insignificant fraction of scientists deny the global warming crisis, that the debate was over, science was settled, and they have consensus. But all of that is demonstrably false, as even Gore himself 17 years later confessed that the debate over human-induced climate change had raged up until 1999.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- My pastor said that we all enjoy mercy and grace, but we all deserve hell. Do you believe that we deserve hell?
- I listened to a sermon by Adam Hamilton, and he said that we have license to interpret the bible as we see fit. How would you counter this?
