Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) told constituents last week that he believes if climate change is a real problem, God can fix it.

“I believe there’s climate change,” Walberg said at a town hall last Friday in Coldwater, Mich., according to the Huffington Post, which obtained video of the exchange.

“I believe there’s been climate change since the beginning of time. I think there are cycles. Do I think that man has some impact? Yeah, of course. Can man change the entire universe? No.”

“Why do I believe that? Well, as a Christian, I believe that there is a creator in God who is much bigger than us. And I’m confident that, if there’s a real problem, he can take care of it.”

Walberg said during the town hall he doesn’t expect everyone to agree with him on his opinion.

President Trump reportedly plans to pull the United States out of the Paris climate change agreement Thursday.

The move would mark a dramatic departure from the Obama administration, which was instrumental in crafting the deal. It also would make the U.S. an outlier among the world’s nations, nearly all of who support the climate change accord.

The Obama administration, which helped negotiate the pact, had promised a 26 to 28 percent cut in the country’s emissions, a pledge that Republicans had slammed as necessitating expensive, job-killing regulations.

Trump, who doubts the science behind climate change, has already begun the process of reversing American climate policies.

    Congressman Tim Walberg- You show a vast ignorance of your own religion.
    1. Your statement is the equivalent of saying, “I can drive 120 mph and God will protect me from harm.” Perhaps you were taught that man is not supposed to test God?
    The Temptation of Jesus
    Luke 4:11- and they will lift You up in their hands, so that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.’” 12But Jesus declared, “It also says, ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” 13When the devil had finished every temptation, he left Him until an opportune time.…
    2. Who is to say that Climate Change is NOT God responding to a Problem in His eyes?
    Genesis 2:15 “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and keep it.”
    God gave mankind a command and told him that he must tend or keep the garden. The Hebrew word for “tend” or some translations say “keep” it is “shamar” and it means more than just keep it neat and tidy. The Hebrew word means “to guard” or “to watch and protect.” The other Hebrew word in this verse that’s very important is the word “work” or as some translations more accurately say “to cultivate” and is from the Hebrew word “`abad” meaning “to serve” so Genesis 2:15 would better read as: “The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to serve it and to guard and protect it.” That means that we are stewards of the earth and the Master will require of us an account on how we’ve been stewards of what He has given us. So far, it’s not been good stewardship to say the least.
    Revelation 11:18 “The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.”
    God will not leave those unpunished who destroy the earth because those who do so are only interested in using and abusing the earth to make a profit but at what cost? We all are responsible for how we live our lives and if we throw trash out of the car, how we leave trash in campsites or pour out toxic wastes in the ground. Years ago our neighbor used to pour his used motor oil on the fence line so that he wouldn’t have to weed eat where the mower wouldn’t reach but his trees started to die and he ended up having to cut down two huge one hundred year old trees in his back yard. How sad.
    Maybe this is God taking out the Destroyers of the Earth for Failing at their job of Stewardship??
