Nancy Pelosi: Combating Climate Change is a Religious Issue
November 19, 2021
On Thursday, November 18, 2021, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a press conference that the climate change movement is a “religious” issue for her when recounting her visit to COP26. According to Pelosi, the climate crisis is also a “national security” issue and we have a “moral obligation” to become protectors of “God’s creation.” When top political leaders start invoking religion with a “national” climate crisis, we know exactly where it is headed.
A precedent is being set for the coming tyranny as politics and religion unite to impose a “Green Sunday Law” in obedience to the Pope’s climate encyclical. One must grasp the magnitude of what is happening before our eyes: the complete surrender of secular governments to the first beast of Revelation 13. Our nation will establish an apostate religious-political system modeled after Rome.
The only piece of the puzzle that has yet to take shape is the National Sunday Law. When civil rule comes under the influence of the church, these efforts lead to both the downfall of the church and state. When the church enters into an unholy alliance with the state, that’s when faith is corrupted with political influence and power. This opens the way for the church to become arbitrary and a persecutor of minority groups who reject the church’s man-made traditions.
For decades, faithful Seventh-day Adventists have been announcing the final developments of world events, and we are only seeing the fulfilment of these trends. When world leaders begin making public religious statements in context to a national emergency, what follows is the systematic dismantling of all our freedoms. They are working to revoke our Constitutional rights and soon all our liberties will disappear.
The only answer for this unholy alliance of church and state is the everlasting gospel found in Revelation 14:6-12. These great messages have to take priority in the life and work of the church. These messages which the Lord gave must be faithfully proclaimed. Only through the effortless and vigorous work of evangelism can there be hope and salvation to overcome in the days ahead. We must be preparing for the coming mark of the beast.
“The Lord has shown me clearly that the image of the beast will be formed before probation closes; for it is to be the great test for the people of God, by which their eternal destiny will be decided” (Bible Commentary, Vol. 7, p. 976).
