What Color is Your Faith?
Globalism - Ecumenism
Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Coming to a pulpit near you (courtesy of Al Gore and friends) a new kind of worship: 'GreenFaith'. But it's not really faith, which traditionally seeks God as the source of truth. And it's not really green, either. Unless you're talking the kind of green certain people like to remove from your pockets.
The organization GreenFaith "mobilizes people of diverse religious backgrounds for environmental leadership." And now has official association with Lutheran, Unitarian, Episcopal, Catholic, Congregational, Anglican, Roman Catholic, Franciscan, Presbyterian, Methodist, and Nazarene congregations (as well as Hindu and Jewish) in the form of providing green "certification" to congregations.
For certification, Greenfaith institutions must conduct eco-themed worship services, teach creation care to the children, offer interfaith events, be an eco-conscious operation, and advocate for environmental justice.
Webster defines faith as; "the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another (God), resting solely on his authority."
So Greenfaith isn't really faith.
Their blog warns that unless US grows up and stops being the obstructionist bully of the UN greenhouse gas conferences global warming will destroy both earth and inhabitants.
Where'd that idea come from?
Al Gore (unlike the internet) didn't invent global warming but he put it front and center in the minds of the American public with the documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth". Producer Laurie David, happened to see the Inconvenient Truth slide show at the same time Day After Tomorrow was released. Convinced that the 'earth was at stake" she put Gore in the movies. The movie ended up with two Oscars and Gore with a Nobel Peace Prize.
A little premature.
The UK High court ruled the same year that An Inconvenient Truth (shown in British high schools) violated an Act of Parliament which prohibited the political indoctrination of children.
(Do we have a law like that? I want one. )
UK schools were sent a supplemental document which made clear that the mainstream scientific position, on multiple points, did not agree with Gore's findings.
So Greenfaith isn't truth either.
Time here does not permit a thorough rebuttal, but Gore's errors fall into three categories.
The movie "Day After Tomorrow" featured a disruption in the "thermohaline circulation" in the ocean ( a current within the ocean based on differences in water temperature and salt content) which caused a sudden freeze. Gore's movie said that this disruption could happen, plunging us instantaneously into another ice age.
Scientific papers say that changes observed the circulation in the last century represent natural cycles and, in fact, the current is currently strengthening (since the 1980s), not weakening).
Gore said that polar bears now have to swim 60 miles to find ice (it all melted because of global warming) and that they are dying on the way. In fact, ice in the Beaufort Sea has grown since the 80s as well, and polar bears, which (due to hunting) had been reduced to only 5000 known bears worldwide, now number more than 25000.
The truth was that four polar bears who had succumbed during a particularly nasty arctic storm were filmed by Federal wildlife expert Charles Monnett who released the film while implicating global warming in the bears' demise.
Monnett is now on administrative leave.
A high impact moment in Gore's movie was the now infamous "hockey stick graph" which appeared to show an incontrovertible link between carbon dioxide concentrations and global temperatures. When the dust cleared, it was clear that Gore had doctored the data. The US National Academy of Sciences ruled that the graph had no scientific foundation at all.
Temperature changes seem to be linked to cyclical changes in solar activity.
Gore said the seas, without ecological intervention, were likely to soon rise by 20 feet. No. Seas have been that high before, and will probably be that high again, due to natural cycles.
But not for thousands of years.
God made the world, and He made it to be inhabited. He made a wonderfully complex ecosystem that adapts and changes, through cyclical processes, without destroying the inhabitants planned for it.
And their "exaggerations" aren't accidental. A Greenpeace press release, designed to make it easier for reporters to flood the printed news with alarmist messages, included a reminder to "Fill In Alarmist and Armageddonist Factoid Here".
2006: The reporter forgot to insert the factoid and it went to press verbatim. They got busted.
Climate advocate Stephen Schneider explains why it's intentional. "To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts… each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest."
The dishonesty begs the question. What is their real agenda?
The almighty (green) dollar. Gore, because of his investments in green energy companies (and billions of Obama dollars to said companies) is predicted to be the world's first "carbon billionaire".
The movie, despite Laurie Davis' altruistic assertion she was happy to lose money on a documentary because the planet was at stake, has made nearly a hundred million dollars.
We are all now forced to buy green light bulbs. Green makes money.
For the privileged few. But there's a higher purpose as well.
A one world government.
Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret, warned that the real purpose of all the eco-summits is to use global warming hype as a pretext to lay the foundation for a one-world government.
Gary Stix, in Discover magazine, articulated clearly what eco-summit treaties and policy statements have buried in thousands of pages of verbiage.
Stix observed that the science is easy. It is getting human beings to agree upon necessary eco-actions that that is hard. In fact, it will require "all seven billion of us to act in unison." The ability to sustain change globally across the entire human population has so far eluded us because, as his title states: "World Government will be Needed to Stave off Climate Change."
So there you have it. World Government, with power concentrated in the hands of the few people who really understand that the planet is at stake.
(What could go wrong with that? )
Did you ever wonder why Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize? I did.
Admittedly, it was incomprehensible that a movie consisting of Al Gore presenting a powerpoint presentation would win an Oscar. It was doubly mindboggling that a movie consisting of said powerpoint would win an Oscar when dozens of his power points were demonstrably fabricated.
But why a Nobel peace prize?
Why not chemistry, or biology, or even medicine?
Now we know. It's not about the ecosystem, it's about fragmented systems of government. World government (at least in delusional liberal minds) equals peace.
And it's infiltrating the church in the form of green faith. A Presbyterian "Green Team Leader" said of the Greenfaith certification program that it was "Groundbreaking! If you dream of becoming a congregation that puts Creation Care at the center of its agenda, Greenfaith is the path you want to take!"
I'll pass. I'm pretty comfortable with the crimson blood of Jesus, that washed me white as snow, being the center of my faith.
Fortunately, no matter how many eco-summits we have, we have the more sure word of prophecy.
"with their hearts bent on evil, will sit at the same table and lie to each other, but to no avail, because the end will still come at the appointed time." Daniel 11:27b NIV
There is an appointed time, and God's plans will not be thwarted. The end will come.
But I don't think it is going to have much to do with global warming.
I'm thinking I'd like to have a Nobel Peace Prize. Maybe I'll go up to the town square tonight, about eight o'clock, and do a powerpoint on the tragic threat of global darkening.
Anybody want to film me?
