During an appearance in The Jim Bakker Show this Tuesday, Christian activist and author Mary Colbert said that the subject of climate change is being used by Satan to distract people from the fact that the End Times are fast approaching.

“The devil knows what is in the word of God,” she said.

“I truly believe that because he knows what the word says—that toward the End Times, earthquakes, tornadoes, storms, all these things are going to happen as the birth pangs of the return of Jesus Christ—now the enemy is trying to change that narrative for the mindset of the people that this has to do with climate change, so that they can believe it’s something outside of their control that is happening,” she continued.

According to Colbert, people need to repent of their sins in order to “delay” the coming tribulations.

“Repentance would delay things, but because of this hard-heartedness and evil that is increasing, the birth pangs of the earth are getting worse,” she said. “It has nothing to do with coal, it has nothing to do with climate change, it has to do with the sin nature that’s increasing in the earth.”

Damn! That is some serious cognitive dissonance right there. 

So all we need to fix the problem with global warming is just get a little more Jesus into our lives? 

It must be nice to see the solution to every problem is more adherence to your chosen religious belief. 

Of course, having faith is what got us into this mess in the first place. 

Faith in our fossil fuel companies to resist poisoning our planet, faith in politicians to hold them accountable and not be easily bought off by campaign contributions, and of course faith that God would protect us and would never let the planet He provided cause our mass extinction. 

That faith was misplaced then, and it will certainly not solve our problems now. 

These people need a little less Jesus in their lives and a lot more fact-based education.
