Doug Wilson has a challenging post today to Christians, warning them about the spiritual dangers of the current environmental craze.
One area of secular blindness (one of many) is their inability to see how religious they are being. Having defined religion quite narrowly as church buildings and altars, they are utterly incapable of seeing the all-pervasive and quite religious nature of their frenzies and crusades. The problem with invisible religions like this is that one cannot watch them to see if they are going bad. And so they don't.
There is less excuse for Christians -- who are not blind in this way -- for going along with any of it. If you have ever wondered how an ancient Israelite, who had been fed by manna from the sky, could possibly have been attracted to one of the Canaanite groves and high places, just look at the pressure you feel to flush the toilet less, to take shorter showers, to get a smaller car, and to go through any number of other gyrations to reduce your carbon footprint.

Yeah, really it is a manifestation of Earth worship. And just like any other false religion, it is predicated on a lie.

Once a lie becomes the object of religious devotion, it becomes almost impossible for people to look at it objectively. After they have built so many arguments on the basis of it, and have given themselves wholly over to it, don't even think about trying to convert them with the truth; because truth has become heresy.

Its kind of like people who, for various reasons, will yield themselves over to the obvious lies perpetrated by the government. They internalize and partisanize these lies until they become a part of their very political identity. So no matter who says what about the Gulf of Tonkin incident, there is always another justification for the killing machine. So if the whole thing was contrived, what difference does it make? We only listen to NSA reports when they are finding "terrorists". Because "What are you? A commie?" In other words, "Dost thou blaspheme?"

This global warming thing is certainly a religion requiring vast amounts of faith and self-righteousness.

It is a ridiculous lie and the devil is laughing his carbon hoofprint off.

I wanted to follow up on this post, because it more apparent than ever that the global warming dogma is, in every literal sense, a religion. Not only is this apparent in the Climategate scandal, but it is even clearer in consideration of the information that follows.

It has recently come to light that the United Nations, the primary vehicle of global governance who perhaps stands to profit most from carbon taxation, published a document outlining just how they would use propaganda to start this new religion. Here is a direct quote:

"The environment should compete with religion as the only compelling, value-based narrative available to humanity. To do that, however, it will have to make
itself relevant well beyond the world of those already concerned with the environment, including very prominently its own formal constituency. Indeed, unless UNEP succeeds in recasting the debate, it is highly likely that the economic community will do it—badly, and on its own terms. It is already happening in the field of climate change. The world will be driven by the decisions made by investors and consumers. UNEP must work out who best influences investment decisions and address them; it must identify what influences consumer choice, and focus on influencing that... Influencing economic policy means messaging in its language, and stating the case in terms that carry with the economic policy community and the business
community that it serves.We believe that the environment argument should be recast in terms of its importance for and potential contribution to Prosperity, Stability and Equity."

What does this all mean? Essentially the United Nations is developing the theology for the new global religion that will create the necessary funding for global government. Treaties like Kyoto are essential towards undermining the sovereignty of nations, so pay special attention to Obama's promises to lower U.S. emissions.

Is this a conspiracy? By definition it is, despite the tendency of people to shy away from all that "kooky" stuff. This didn't happen overnight, and its been a long time coming. Consider this quote from The First Global Revolution: A Report for the Club of Rome:

"In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”

Amazing, isn't it, how Romans 1:25 was so prophetic?

Chris A said...

Definitely. Really what Romans 1 points out is human depravity extending from the time when sin first entered the world. What we see at work here, in comparison to the Paul's historical reference to the effects of sin in Romans 1, is that when it comes to human beings there is nothing new under the Sun. So while it is seemingly prophetic, it basically is identifying that these are the works of those who reject the truth of God - depravity manifested in a variety of evil ways, including creation worship.

And these elites understand this. They know it is the nature of humans to worship creation, so they literally tailor a religion fueled by fear of catastrophe that will fill that void while lining their pockets and usurping power. And it is done in such a calculated way that they literally contemplate the tenets of the religion so that it will suit their long-term goals - and they document it!

One thing I forgot to note about that quote from the Club of Rome book was the date. It was written back in 1991, demonstrating that this scheme, identical to the one hatched up by the UN and other governmental and financial bodies, has been in the works for a long time.

When you learn what these groups say in their white papers, you can literally watch their plans unfold in the years that follow. Call it a business plan or whatever, but when it is for nefarious ends it is a conspiracy - and the only thing theoretical about it is the interpretation of world events in light of what has already been proposed.
