Major faiths endorsing environmentolgy; earth-ethic (pantheism, Gaia, 'the greens' )

The Scarlet Harlot of Revelation 17 " arrayed in purple and scarlet "

"I saw a woman ( Church-endorsed Global Commercialism; World Trade Org. WTO ) sit upon a scarlet colored beast ( antichrist System ) full of names of blasphemy ( using religious terminology )
having seven heads ( G 7 Industrialized Democracies ) and ten horns (
Western European Union, WEU ).
And the woman was arrayed in purple ( all-inclusive diversity ) and scarlet color (adulteration) , and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, ( very worldly, greedy; please see James 5: 1-6 )
having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornications:

And upon her forehead was a name written:
"MYSTERY BABYLON the GREAT, the MOTHER of HARLOTS and ABOMINATIONS of the EARTH".
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."

Smart Eco Business .. manipulating one's conscience to worship environmentalism

Comment :
" Revelation 17 is church-endorsed commerce [ retail and trade, World Trade Organization WTO ]
tied to ecological "ethics" ( so-called) , which is backed by the heavy hand of governance.
[ ability to have "access denied" ; ostracizing consequences ] .
When religion, and business and government are tied to an outside "common cause" with religious fervor, you have the harlot of  Revelation 17.
[ intermingling of entities that ought to require separation, in order to prevent immoral collusion ]

Unfortunately, the main-stream government-backed churches will endorse this abominable adulteration.
(Persuaded by 501 tax exemptions and faith-based grants)

Yes, we are to be good stewards of the land. Yet land, corporations and economies ought never take priority over individual human needs and priorities. The "collective good" ought never outweigh the good of the individual.

This is the order of priority :
God first,
man's soul/spirit/ second
and everything else subjugated to those authorities.

God gave to man the dominion over the earth, not visa-versa.
"And God said," Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have the dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,, and over the cattle, AND OVER ALL THE EARTH, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." Genesis 1: 26 + 28

Had we followed God's guide lines contained in the Bible, we would not be in the polluted mess we are today.
Pollution is only a reflection of the corruption within man's heart.
Jeremiah 17:9

501 tax status-- churches exempt from paying taxes-- and faith-based subsidies  have successfully undermined the Biblical Faith that once was the plumbline of American Churches . De Toquiville ought to have said, "As long as the churches pay taxes, and practice separation of church and State, they will be independent of government intervention, control and collusion."
But since the churches took a free ride on the government's back, the government can now control the churches. "

The love of money is the root of all evil"
-- 1 Timothy 6: 10

"Render to Caesar therefore the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. "
Matthew 22: 21     Mark 12: 17     Luke 20: 25

There is a great hypocrisy going on concerning the environment. If the System loved green so much and wanted the earth to be replenished with trees, then why is the System making sure that trees have barely any limbs in all of our cities, so that cameras and GPS can see all the better ? Pragmatism wins out over environmentalism whenever it suits their purposes.

"Green credits will be given to those loyal to the System" -- end of comment


Bible to go along with market driven economics .... savvy religion ( blasphemous too )
" A media release obtained by ANS says that according to Chairman Mr. De Rijke the foundation has reacted to a growing wish of many churches to be market-oriented and more attractive. "Jesus was very inspiring for our inner health, but we don't need to take his
na´ve remarks about money seriously. He didn't study economics, obviously," he said.

"It's a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God " -- Hebrews 10: 31

It's NOT the Economy, sir
One of our American presidents's used to say , " It's the ECONOMY, s_ _ _ _ _ ." Well, he was referring of course to politics and global control.
Unfortunately he -- and all the other elitists -- do not realize that: "
it's
JESUS , sir " , Who has all power and is soon to reign over all the kings of this earth, even over all of our American presidents and even over those sophisticated economists.

JESUS is our ultimate Rainmaker ; and without rain, there is no economy, sir. Period.

He will reign by rain .
Zechariah 14 : 17--19

Smart Cards and carbon monitoring

The idea of carbon rationing or personal carbon allowances is now being seriously discussed. Under such a system every citizen would be issued with a smart card and allocated so many carbon units per year. Every time he filled up his car, bought his home heating oil or booked a flight he would use up some of these units.
Just as already happens under carbon trading schemes for large companies, people who wanted to exceed their carbon allowance could buy carbon units from others who had not used up their quota.
This is another example of how market forces and capitalism could help us out of the mess we've created for ourselves and the planet. It seems like the best hope for the future.

Bill Moyers: Putting down fundamental Christians ( again ) over environmentology -- Green evangelical movement
A well orchestrated polarity of progressive Christian ( earth subject to manipulation) vs. fundamental Christian ( earth subject to God-given principles )
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15196924/
If Moyers is such a high priest of nature, why isn't he condemning abortions ? The birth of a baby to completion and total living is as natural as trees in the environment etc.
