I HAVE NOT YET SEEN THE FILM, FUEL. SHOULD WE BE MOVING AWAY FROM OIL WHEN REPORTEDLY ISRAEL HAS DISCOVERED IT HAS LARGER RESERVES OF OIL THAN SAUDI ARABIA?
Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Thank you for your letter. We support Israel and it would be interesting if Israel does discover oil. However, that would probably only help them with their own needs and alleviate their need for importing and depending on foreign oil.
It is highly unlikely that such a small land could have more oil than Saudi Arabia! Nevertheless, no matter what, we must move away from our crippling dependence on oil. It is funding and fuelling radical Islam. One out of every three barrels of oil in the Middle East is going to pay for weapons. These weapons are being used against Israel and against the West and against Christians in their countries.
It is simply unacceptable that we continue to be so dependent on such an inefficient form of fuel as oil. For the good of God's Creation and to fulfil the Great Commission, I'm convinced that steadily moving off oil will be an overwhelming beneficial move for civilisation and the fulfilment of the Great Commission.
Yours for faith and Freedom
