Another opinion

Here’s more good news.  In case some who read this blog think that its discussions are just about different Christian points of view, here are similar examples from experts who give no outward display of  Christian allegiance.
 
 On their own, a group of brave men and women have devoted their lives to stop the slaughter of whales, God’s most magnificent mammal creation.  Known as Sea Shepherd, this small, but very brave, army is headed by Captain Paul Watson, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.  Their goal is to stop Japan’s whale-hunting industry from slaughtering whales.  To prevent extinction of whale species, international law forbids whale hunting.  But to skirt around this restriction, Japanese shippers claim to hunt whales solely for research purposes. Yet, whale meat delicacies readily show up in their country’s street markets and butcher shops.

 When Japan’s whale hunting season starts, the Sea Shepherd crews, in their much smaller vessels, do everything possible to interfere  with the hunters’ nefarious pursuits.  Years ago,  Captain Watson said that those mercilessly butchering sea creatures do not realize that in killing whales they can bring about earth’s destruction.  Imagine that, the Sea Shepherd realizes  that destroying God’s great creations can bring an end to the earth as we know it.

 Now that is a testimony!  Although he does nothing to flaunt what faith he may have, perhaps Captain Watson is familiar with the Scripture in Revelation 11:18:  “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”

 Recently, the Sea Shepherd also put dolphins, seals and blue-fin tuna under their protective wing.  Watson said of the tuna, “Rampant overfishing is speeding the Atlantic bluefin tuna towards extinction.  Sea Shepherd is on the way to the Mediterranean to defend them.”   If you want to know more about this team dedicated to doing all they can to protect God’s sea creatures, catch the Sea Shepherd’s adventures on their documentary television show, Whale Wars, on the Animal Planet channel.

 And if you want to know more about how grateful God is for those heroes who try to protect His creation from frivolous unnecessary slaughter, rather than defending its destruction, check out the wholesale christian book for resale category online.  Another good source is christian prayer books.  More on other unsung, perhaps non-religious, heroes trying save, rather than exploit, God’s creation in future blogs.
