Fischer: It Hurts God’s Feelings if We Don’t Use Fossil Fuels
‘The wicked and lazy master was the one who buried his talent in the ground and didn’t do anything to multiply it,’ Beisner explained. ‘That’s essentially what those who say we need to stop using oil, coal and natural gas are telling us to do. Just leave those resources buried in the ground, rather than pulling them out and multiplying their value for human benefit.’
Fischer likened the situation to a birthday present he was given at the age of six.
‘I opened up a birthday present that I didn’t like, and I said it right out, ‘Oh, I don’t like those,” the radio host recalled. ‘And it just crushed — and the person that gave me gift was there. You know, I just kind of blurted it out, ‘I don’t like those.’ And it just crushed that person. It was enormously insensitive of me to do that.’
‘And you think, that’s kind of how we’re treating God when he’s given us these gifts of abundant and inexpensive and effective fuel sources,’ Fischer added. ‘And we don’t thank him for it and we don’t use it.’
‘You know, God has buried those treasures there because he loves to see us find them.’
