Paul and I want the same things: More responsible use of our resources. But Paul seems to want us to be in compliance with standardized world laws. He never used the phrase New World Order, but it sure sounds like it to me.
I, on the other hand, would rather employ freedom and personal responsibility. After all, where would we go if we found standardized world laws oppressive?
It seemed that he said the same thing over and over. Maybe this is because I already understand the problems he is addressing. It could be cut way down, I think.
One last thing… The reader pronounces “nuclear” as “nuke - u - lar” which hurts credibility.
The author takes a known phenomenon -EMP- which melts micro circuits - all micro circuits to weave a story about life without electricity.
We don't normally think about this. A powerful EMP can come from special bombs detonated over our country... or it can be the result of a rare but inevitable solar flare. Such a flare happened in 1859 when there were no micro circuits to melt. Scientists say it can happen again.
The story gets us thinking. Fortunately, there are things we can do now to soften the impact. But if we wait untill it happens, it will be much harder.
God promised that he would never destroy men again with a flood. He made no such promise about cutting off electricity.
Ted Dekker is one of my favorite writers. In his non-fiction Tea with Hezbollah, he asks Muslim leaders: “What do you think about Jesus’ commandment to ‘love your neighbor as yourself?’” They all said they believe and practice Jesus’ commandment. But where is the evidence? The Middle East is full of hate, violence, murder and jihad. Which neighbor do these Muslims love? Ted doesn't analyze his findings.
