I have a friend who gets upset at anyone who goes out of the way to protect the environment. I’m not talking about green peace radicals or anything like that.
He gets upset at the simple stuff, like efforts to clean up beaches, save rain forests, or simply be conscious of keeping the air clean.
I believe his rationale is that the world is going to end, and the more you try to keep it clean and stop it from “dying” then you are trying to delay the return of the Messiah. He seems to believe the more we thrash this earth, the more we are speeding up the return of the Messiah, since the Messiah will have to return before the end of the world.
What Scripture reverse refute his position, if any?
