Romans 1:25 ‘Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.’
Men will worship someone or something for worship is in their DNA. For instance, murderous Cain was a man of worship albeit the wrong worship. Nevertheless, down
through the ages, man has worshipped someone or something!
God’s Word in the above verse tells us that man left to himself will worship and serve what has been created more or in place of the Creator Himself. For example, the religion of climate change has brought mankind down the aisle to worshipping at the altar of Mother Earth. Note these quotes;
‘…from R. Mark Musser’s book, Nazi Ecology: The Oak Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust:
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our duty to bring that about?” – The late Maurice Strong, then Secretary General of the United Nations Environment Programme
“In our deeply interdependent world today, the iron rule remains – our world is one, unseparated, and interdependent. It is this world that is threatened by the impact of man’s unplanned, selfish, and ever growing activities.” – Kurt Waldheim, former Austrian Nazi and UN Secretary General
“If radical environmentalists were to invent a disease to bring human populations back to sanity, it would probably be something like AIDS.” – Earth First! Newsletter
“We have wished, we eco-freaks, for a disaster or for a social change to come and bomb us into the Stone Age.” – Stewart Brand, Whole Earth Catalogue
“Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, is not as important as a wild and healthy planet: Some of us can only hope for the right virus to come long.” – David Graber, biologist, National Park Service
“Given the total, absolute, and final disappearance of Homo Sapiens not only would the Earth’s Community of Life continue to exist but the ending of the human epoch on Earth would be greeted with a hearty ‘good riddance.’” – Dr. Paul Taylor, professor of philosophy, City College of New York.
“If I could be reincarnated, I would return as a killer virus to lower human population levels.” – Prince Phillip Duke of Edinburgh, patron of World Wildlife Fund.
“The earth is a mosque.” – Ibrahim Abdul-Matin, Muslim environmentalist
“The earth has a cancer and the cancer is Man.” – Club of Rome
“Nature is my god. To me, nature is sacred: trees are my temples and forests my cathedral.” – Mikhail Gorbachev, founder of Green Cross International, Club of Rome member
“Christianity is our foe. If animal rights is to succeed, we must destroy Judeo-Christian Religious tradition.” – Peter Singer, professor of bioethics at Princeton University’ https://prophecyinvestigators.org/gaia-worship-gaining-momentum-globally/
The Club of Rome believes that their report The Limits to Growth forty years ago “…alerted the world to the environmental and demographic challenges ahead. Today, we see that decades of exponential growth in both population and consumption are now colliding with the limits of Earths biosphere. Emergency action is more necessary than ever. We cannot turn a blind eye to the dual tipping points of species extinction and climate change”, said Anders Wijkman, Honorary President of the Club of Rome.’ https://www.clubofrome.org/project/the-club-of-rome-climate-emergency-plan/
As those in The Club of Rome see it the real problems facing us are ‘Climate change and environmental destruction; the crisis of the European Union and the rise of right-wing populism; concentration of wealth and casualization, tax evasion and youth unemployment’. https://www.exploring-economics.org/en/summer-academy-10-years-after Note the right-wing populism! Their goal is to take all your freedoms away.
Then there are those ‘Guided by a philosophy of deep ecology, Earth First! does not accept a human-centered worldview of “nature for people’s sake.” Instead, we believe that life exists for its own sake, that industrial civilization and its philosophy are anti-Earth, anti-woman and anti-liberty. Our structure is non-hierarchical, and we reject highly paid “professional staff” and formal leadership.
To put it simply, the Earth must come first.’ https://earthfirstjournal.org/about/
Murdering the unborn is another form of worship when the Creator is left out. Planned Parenthood is known for its so-called ‘family planning’ which is nothing but the murder of the unborn or also known as abortion. However, climate change also entails ‘family planning – stabilising the world’s population.’ Page 13 https://www.stockholmresilience.org/download/18.51d83659166367a9a16353/1539675518425/Report_Achieving%20the%20Sustainable%20Development%20Goals_WEB.pdf
There is also the usurping of male leadership for female leadership. Page 27 https://www.stockholmresilience.org/download/18.51d83659166367a9a16353/1539675518425/Report_Achieving%20the%20Sustainable%20Development%20Goals_WEB.pdf
There is much much more that could be said but this will suffice to show that the world is at war against its Creator. This war with God has led mankind to ‘worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk’ which eventually leads ‘the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars’ in taking ‘their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death’ Revelation 21:8.
The answer is ‘repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ’ Acts 20:21.
