The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is the international humanitarian agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. On November 8, 2022, the Inter-European Division of Seventh-day Adventists and Hope Media Italy published the official appeal by ADRA to world leaders gathered at COP27. In their statement, ADRA urged “policy makers and influential personalities” to take “stronger” environmental action during COP27. The statement said, in part:
ADRA’s Statement on the Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27)
“The Adventist Development and Relief Agency, as humanitarian and development practitioners, has seen first-hand how the global equilibrium is out of order.”
“We aim to do our deed; offices in our network have started .”
“ADRA calls on policy makers and influential personalities to take necessary decisions in the upcoming UN Climate Conference. The industrialized countries, as the historical perpetrators of the climate crisis, must finally step up to promises made.”
“The COP26 has set some course but more steps are needed, such as stronger consideration of civil society actors; more focus on loss and damage; and meeting the pledge on global adaptation financing.”
“ADRA Europe hopes that these points will find strong consideration in the upcoming policy talks and wishes participants a successful and fruitful COP27.”
A remarkable phenomenon is occurring today in Adventism. Under the leadership of Pope Francis, all the churches, economists, environmentalists, policy makers, and governments are working together to heal the earth, even as sin and anarchy are increasing at an alarming rate in society. More churches are adding their names to the new religious crusade against climate change. The religion of ecology is replacing the everlasting gospel of Revelation 14:6-12, as many Seventh-day Adventists are moving from saving souls to saving the soil. Now we will be rescuing the planet instead of people.
The moral issues that have been fought over throughout the 6,000-year controversy between Christ and Satan are about to change. It’s no longer about sin, disobedience, rebellion, apostasy, and lawlessness. No, not anymore. Now it’s about sustainability, biodiversity, clean energy, and climate change. According to the Book of Revelation, the great adversaries in the last days used to be the beast, the image, and the false prophets. That’s all changed now.
Today, these bad actors have become our friends. They are now our new allies in the fight against greenhouse gases. In the new and improved end-time scenario, we need to foster a spirit of cooperation with the Vatican, the other churches, the UN, the EU, the WEF, and other globalists in order to save the earth. Once again, we are witnessing a decline in our faith as a growing number of Seventh-day Adventists abandon their belief in Revelation 13, 17, and 18 and instead refocus their evangelism on addressing the climate agenda through Catholic social teachings and secular ideologies.
It is astonishing that politicians have infiltrated the church and are spreading their message about sustainability to our people. These climate change activists who have invaded Adventism cannot help anyone enter heaven because the church is not a place where people can be reached with a secular, worldly message.
Eco-spirituality has emerged as the world’s new global religion. This effort is being led by Pope Francis. And when we merge human ideologies with Adventism, we rapidly lose sight of our true mission and identity. We end up being just another one of the world’s tens of thousands of churches. Satan’s agenda is to unite the entire world, and the messages about climate change, climate Sunday, and the common good are his means of doing so. Why aren’t our people able to see what’s happening?
“Satan determines to unite them in one body, and thus strengthen his cause by sweeping all into the ranks of Spiritualism. Papists, who boast of miracles as a certain sign of the true church, will be readily deceived by this wonder-working power; and Protestants, having cast away the shield of truth, will also be deluded. Papists, Protestants, and worldlings will alike accept the form of godliness without the power, and they will see in this union a grand movement for the conversion of the world, and the ushering in of the long-expected millennium.” (Great Controversy, p. 588).
