NAE pushed my buttons

Here's a letter I recently sent to the NAE (that's National Association of Evangelicals for those of you going to hell). What were they thinking?

Rev. Cizik and Rev. Haggard,

I'm writing you out of my great concern for your recent public statements on the Evangelical Church and Global Warming. I am an Evangelical, and a member of Fellowship Alliance Chapel, in Medford, NJ (C&MA).

I read your comments in the New York Times online article, posted by the Herald Tribune, here: http://www.heraldtribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050310/ZNYT02/503100853

What I want to know is if you've read your Bible regarding global warming?

Ge 8:22 "While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease."

Do Evangelicals still believe in the authority and inerrency of Scripture?

I'm not a disbeliever in global warming, as a rule. I have serious doubts that global warming is in any way connected to human activity. What I am, however, is a great disbeliever that God will allow it to be cataclysmic. He's promised that this will not happen. Do you believe this? If so, why would you align yourselves with those with whom on so many social and world-view issues we disagree?

I find this position of yours greatly disheartening, and quite frankly, unbiblical. And, I'm sad to say that it sullies the reputation of the NAE in my mind. I have always had a great deal of respect for this organization, but I'm afraid I will now look on anything you do with suspicion from here on.

Please address this scripture, and give your exegesis, if you read it differently (as if that were possible).

BTW, my wife said I was not too loving. I don't know. I get my hackles up when supposed bible-believing Christians ignore black and white statements in scripture.
