Issues I'm Wrestling With
Here are some of the things I have been thinking about recently. In regards to most of them I don't really know much about them but feel that they are issues I cannot ignore or put aside because of ignorance. My goal of course is to discover a biblical perspective and Christian response to each issue.
- Climate Change
- Peak Oil
- Genetic Engineering
- Food Shortages and the increasing difficulty of growing food in some places
- Sweat Shops
- World Poverty
- Western Social Conditioning (that may be extremely unbiblical) and its negative impact on the world
Over the next 6 months I am hoping to have developed a genuine understanding of these issues and how average Joe should respond.
So far I have been talking to people I know that already have a real interest and understanding of these issues. I have been asking them to recommend books, websites, documentaries, etc that would be insightful. I've also been watching a fair bit Discovery Chanel and Documentary Chanel as well.
I'll keep you posted.
Also feel free to recommend books etc that you have found helpful in regards to these issues.
