The Earth Will Get A Lot Hotter

Yes, the earth will get hotter, but this isn't man-made global warming. It's called the faint sun paradox.

What is that?

If the sun is billions of years old, it should be a lot hotter. Our sun is too faint! This is what happens: as the sun ages its composition changes as the result of nuclear reactions and the sun gets hotter. Based on this fact, 3.5 billion years ago, when life was supposedly getting started on earth, based on the current condition of the sun, the sun would have been putting out much less radiation. That means the earth would have been 31 degrees cooler and completely frozen. But there's no evidence of this. None at all. So the earth must have be warm in the past, about the same temperature as today. But if that's true about the past, the sun (and as a result the earth) should be much hotter today. But it isn't. That's the faint sun paradox.

good news of the cross

The gospel is not social justice nor serving others. The gospel is love in action... Jesus Christ giving Himself so that you can be saved from the wrath of God.

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.

After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.
