The Demonic Nature of Weathermen

This post is not me advocating for the public execution of weathermen. The fact that they are people who essentially lack a conscious as they lie night after night is not the purpose of this post. Weathermen are really a symptom of the secularization of our society. Our hope and trust in their analysis of nature shows how much naturalism has taken over how we think about the world. In the west we view nature as a completely mechanical process. We do not see God in nature nor do we attempt to explain events from the perspective that God is at work. Everything is explained through a natural cause and effect process. The problem with this is that the farther God gets from our external world the farther He is from us internally. Truth will always be defined by your mediator. The nation of Israel had the angels mediate between them and God at Sinai. The Gentiles have always had nature itself mediate between them and God. In the modern world we have technology between us and nature and then men explaining what the technology is saying about nature. Unlike angels or nature itself, technology has been made and developed by man for man’s purposes. Technology spits out brute facts and men with their own agenda relay that data to us. This process distorts the fulness of truth. Truth is propositional, of course, but it is also providential and possesses potential. Nature is providential because it was made and is upheld by the power of God (Col. 1:15-16, Heb. 1:3). All things live, move and have their being in God (Acts 17:28). He is sovereign over all things. Nature also possesses potential for revelation. Creation holds the power of divinity within it to reveal God to us (Rom. 1:18-20). We have forgotten that God fills all the earth (Jer. 23:23-24). When was the last time you heard someone in the western world discuss the longing desire or the will of nature? Yet, Paul describes nature in this way in his letter to the Romans (Rom. 8:19-22). Now we don’t want to venture into pantheism but the Bible certainly does not describe nature as merely mechanical cause and effect processes. We have forgotten this. Weathermen are a symptom of our rejection of God as Creator and our connection to His Creation. They are the mediators between us and technology. which separates us from creation. This is the work of Satan. Technology has allowed us to avoid the power and judgment of God. But that won’t last forever.
