Ecumenism, the unification of all religions on the planet under the umbrella of the Church of Rome, has as its primary goal the sanctification of Sunday. A hidden game within the earth and climate protection movements. The intentional, unconscious violation of the Sabbath commandment by unsuspecting people.

Everything is old hat from yesterday, a pseudo-argument that can be heard again and again in a similar formulation about the earthly adversaries once recognized by the early reformers in the Roman Catholic Church. The pioneers of the Reformation and also in later times unanimously agreed that the “man of sin”, the “son of perdition” and the “little horn”, as described in the book of Daniel and in Revelation, among others, without beyond any doubt the political-religious power is the Roman Catholic Church.
The reformers were not just Martin Luther and a handful of comrades-in-arms, but a long list of pastors and theologians who recognized that the anti- Christian power must deal with the papacy (Info).
Today there is hardly anything left of the reformers’ knowledge. Only in the context of “corrected errors” those who then had to recognize their “disorientation”. Under the umbrella of ecumenism, the realization that the Church of Rome is the institution of the adversary no longer has any place. How could it be possible that all once Protestant churches returned to the womb of the mother if, according to Revelation, she was supposed to be the “mother of harlots” (Revelation 17:5)? This is how you made yourself a whore. But that’s the result, because they did it.
The return of the dissenting daughters to their mother is effectively completed with the “Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification” (1999) and the “Conflict on Community” (2017). (Detail). Only a few points are considered in a differentiated manner and these include, in particular, the Lord’s Supper and the Eucharist (Info).
After the familiar maternal family is reunited with their out-of-town “father”, they also pursue a common goal. Intensive conditioning of the once Protestant daughters was not necessary for this because their separation from the Church of Rome was never actually completed.
In principle it remained an “internal rebellion” against the mother. Some family traditions were never abandoned by the Protestant churches, including the baptism of infants (Info) and the sanctification of Sunday.
Sunday as a general worship service as a replacement for the biblical Sabbath is in fact a very long tradition of the Roman Catholic Church as well as the once Protestant institutions. Although the Church of Rome openly and even emphatically stated that it changed the Sabbath to Sunday on the basis of its “divine authority,” and there is not a single hint of justification to be found in the Bible, the churches all stuck to Sunday (Info).
A look at history also clearly shows that the biblical Sabbath was the focus of their attacks by the fathers of this church from the very beginning (Info).
The biblical Sabbath was never canceled by God or Jesus Christ or postponed to another day. Such proof cannot be provided from the Bible. This naturally means that the Sabbath (7th day of the week, Saturday) is still valid today, without restrictions, for all people (Info). The Sabbath is the Fourth Commandment. A total of ten bids. Breaking even one commandment means breaking the entire law, James 2:10:
“For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.“
Now the objection could arise that Jesus Christ finally died for our sins, abolished the law and now everything is “done with it”. Finally, Paul also says inRomans 5:20:
“Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:“
However, this blanket forgiveness, as taught by the evangelical churches, is a big mistake. The very fact that without a law there would be no sin and therefore grace would not be necessary at all proves the nonsense of “watering can grace” (Info). In this case, Jesus Christ would not have had to send the Holy Spirit to us to convict us of our sins or to make us aware of them.
Forgiveness of sins is only possible if the sinner first recognizes his crime. This happens through the Holy Spirit and only succeeds if people do not completely close themselves off against Him. Then comes repentance, repentance and asking for forgiveness. This also testifies that the sinner has accepted Jesus Christ as his Redeemer and Savior. This is sometimes an aspect of faith.
If all of this is missing, then forgiveness of a sin through grace cannot be expected. One of the attributes of God that is often repressed today is His justice, which is just as immutable as His law (Info).
It is obvious that ignoring the biblical Sabbath, i.e. the Fourth Commandment, is a violation of God’s law. A sin. The perfidious thing about it, however, is that the vast majority of people are completely unaware of this. They wallow in the supposed security that the sanctification of Sunday, as exemplified by their church and its representatives, is the only right way. No! It is not so! It is and remains a tradition established by the Roman Catholic Church. A tradition that is wrong, even contrary to God’s laws, will not eventually become right even if it is practiced long enough. The democratic principle of the majority does not apply here either.
The Fourth Commandment, the Sabbath on the seventh day of the week, has a special feature. It is neither a “thou shalt” nor a “thou may not” commandment, but a “remember” commandment. While non-Christian and secular societies already “naturally” reject murder, manslaughter, theft, adultery, greed, etc., things are completely different with the Sabbath. It is the identifying mark of our Creator God. It is His seal. Anyone who keeps this Sabbath commandment recognizes the only living Creator God and His authority.
The Roman Catholic Church had a massive problem with this right from its beginnings. Because their actually worshiped “God” has another day for his homage and that is the day of the sun or Sunday (Info).
The Sabbath was the first target of this Roman church. She was always careful to ensure that her established Sunday as a sign of her authority was scrupulously observed, and the Sabbath will remain the final target of attack. This already identifies the common path of the Mother Church and her daughters. The unification of humanity in the course of ecumenism to observe Sunday including veneration of the highest moral authority on earth.
The steps taken began at the same time as the founding of the major ecumenical associations. In recent years, measures have been introduced to focus even more on Sundays. It’s a given for the Christian churches anyway, but it’s still far from the norm for non-Christian religions and atheistically minded people. Climate and nature conservation comes into play here, already officially defined as a new religion (Info).
Laws to protect Sunday, soon to be passed by individual state governments, especially the USA, are already within reach. Two sides are served here. On the one hand, there is the Christian aspect, where the (Catholic) Sunday must be protected for church services and on the other hand, the Sunday is a “lockdown” for the drastic reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. The climate must be protected. All of this is wrapped up in the theological narrative “preservation of creation”.
Church, politics, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), business and associations are now “fire and flame” for this topic. Urgent measures are needed to avert the otherwise threatening “apocalypse”. The church, whether Catholic or Protestant, should actually know that the Bible has precise information on this matter (Info).
The breakdown of the “Charta Oecumenica”, which was signed by the Working Group of Christian Churches (ACK), among others, clearly shows its contradictions to the Gospel, the Word of God. It is essentially organized rebellion against God (Info).
The following are clear references to the preparatory work that has already been done for the introduction of a legally binding Sunday for “climate protection” and finally also for “homage” to a false deity. The “scripts” from Rome, also referred to as the enclical “Laudato Si’” (2015) with its expansion “Laudate Deum” (2023), are only mentioned to emphasize their respective publication dates.
The global ecumenical association “World Council of Churches” is committed to a “Climate Sunday” in the interests of climate and earth protection.
“Climate Sunday: an opportunity for churches to engage with creation.
More than 1,600 churches have already joined the initiative, which aims to leave a lasting legacy of thousands of churches better able to address this critical issue as part of their discipleship and mission, and to contribute significantly to the efforts of the civil society, ensuring adequate national care and international action at COP26.“
Church Times, September 5, 2020, “Fifty-two Sundays to rescue creation”
“The Bishop of Salisbury, the Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, has described the Climate Sunday initiative, launched this weekend by Churches Together in the UK and Ireland, as a “brilliant resource” to help communities meet the target of zero emissions by 2030 to achieve and advocate for more government action.“
The Tablet, on February 4th, 2020, “The Sabbath in an Era of Climate Change”
“Imagine if most monotheists in the world, those who come from traditions that claim to keep a weekly Sabbath, and anyone else who cares, chose one day out of seven, to their own detriment in the environment on a consistent basis.[…] Since the highly polluting “developed” world is made up mostly of monotheists, the impact of eliminating most emissions on a weekly basis would be particularly important. Judaism and Christianity describe the Sabbath as an obligation. If we truly believe that a radical change in our behavior is necessary for environmental reasons – I certainly believe it is – then don’t those reasons make the Sabbath a liability along with all other environmental solutions“
On the website of the organization “Climate Sunday” there is the following statement:
“In the run-up to COP26 in Glasgow, over 2,200 churches and church groups throughout Britain and Ireland participated in the Climate Sunday Initiative, addressing climate change by holding Climate Sunday services, committing to practical action and speaking up for climate justice.
Climate Sunday was resourced by a coalition of 31 denominations and charities, members of the Environmental Issues Network (EIN) of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI). The coalition, though time-limited, aimed to leave a lasting legacy of churches committed to ongoing action. Its members will continue to provide opportunities for local churches to make climate action a significant part of their discipleship and mission and to contribute to civil society efforts to secure adequate national and international action.“
Another organization, Green Sabbath Project, also makes demands to protect the earth. The addressee is also non-Christian people.
“What do we want from you? Mostly nothing. Mostly willpower. Try to “do nothing” one day a week. Try to observe a real sabbath day of rest. Promote the idea and its practice. There are no rules, no measuring, no grades. Do the best you can. This is an effort based purely on good will. Can we collectively reduce our harm to the environment through sheer willpower? See the call to action written by our founder and director, Jonathan Schorsch, ‘The Sabbath in an Era of Climate Change.’“
Another secular association for the protection of Sunday is the European Sunday Alliance. A group with well-known members, e.g. Caritas, Ackermann Community, Verdi, Olympic Sports Association, DGB.
“[…] For this reason, the European Sunday Alliance advocates the introduction of a European weekly common day of rest for workers, traditionally on Sunday, as set out in Article 2 of the European Social Charter.“
The Alliance for Sunday Free seems to feel committed to politics. This association demands:
“1. Uniform and clear boundaries for Sunday work
through more detailed provisions in the Working Hours Act, a nationwide consumer trade regulation and cross-state standards for Sunday shopping
2. Compliance with Sunday protection in practice
through concrete and practical implementation requirements for working time, shop closing hours and public holiday law
3. A regular Sunday protection report from the federal government,
who analyzes the development of Sunday work and critically examines the effectiveness of Sunday protection“
The EU representatives of the “Christian Democrats” in Germany (CDU), the CDA, have also already discovered Sunday protection “for themselves”:
““You shall work for six days and rest on the seventh day,” it said in the Old Testament. The commandment to rest on Sundays has a long tradition in Christian countries. In Germany it was enshrined in law 90 years ago in Article 139 of the Weimar Constitution and can still be found today in Article 140 of the Basic Law and the Working Hours Act.
But in everyday life, this Sunday protection does not apply to all employees. Almost one in five employees works on at least one Sunday or public holiday per month. An evaluation by the Federal Statistical Office came to the conclusion in 2020 that of 38.3 million employees, 7.2 million work regularly on Sundays. The Working Hours Act mentions numerous exceptions, such as for the police, fire brigade, hospitals, emergency services or for tourism and the catering industry. A good 1.4 million employees have to work on every Sunday and public holiday every month.“
The year 2020 has been proclaimed by the churches as the “Jubilee Year of the Earth”. ICN-Independent Catholic News reported on this on May 10, 2020:
“Jubilee for the Earth’ is the theme of Autumn’s Season of Creation. And a ‘Creation Sunday’ in September will be introduced. Let us note that high biodiversity reduces the risk of animal“
The Worldwide Association of Lutheran Churches had published a guide for paying homage to “Mother Nature” in the form of a prayer.
“We pray with gratitude for our Mother Earth, in which all life is anchored, for our sister Sun, whose energy gives life, for our brother Water, who nourishes and enlivens us, and all our fellow creatures with whom we live together and for whom we are called upon to cultivate and care for this garden.”
The major newspaper “The Guardian” took up this Sunday climate issue on September 17, 2009:
“Not long ago Sunday used to be a day of rest, a day of spiritual renewal, a day for families to come together, but we have changed Sunday from a day of rest to a day of shopping, flying and driving. However, in the context of excessive carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere, which are bringing catastrophic upheavals, we can and should restore Sunday to a day for Gaia, a day for the Earth“
In July 2023, the highest US court, the Supreme Court, will make a landmark ruling in favor of Sunday protection for the benefit of employees (Info).
The conservative circles in the USA (Republicans) have already drawn up a program that will be implemented in the event of a next Republican US president. This also includes the legal (!) observance of the day of rest on Sunday (Info).
In view of the dynamic development, this section will probably be expanded with current entries.
This type of religiosity, in which “Mother Nature”, “Earth Gaia” and “Sister Sun” are the focus, is pantheism in practice. Pope Francis provided the guidelines for this with his encyclical Laudato Si’. Position 233 of the encyclical states:
“The universe unfolds in God, who fills it completely. Hence, there is a mystical meaning to be found in a leaf, in a mountain trail, in a dewdrop, in a poor person’s face. The ideal is not only to pass from the exterior to the interior to discover the action of God in the soul, but also to discover God in all things. Saint Bonaventure teaches us that “contemplation deepens the more we feel the working of God’s grace within our hearts, and the better we learn to encounter God in creatures outside ourselves.“
The ACK, willing successor and executor of papal theology, categorically excludes from the outset any representation of the pure gospel. On March 13, 2009, Regional Bishop Weber stated in “Idea” (Source):
“Fundamentalism and creationism (the doctrine that God created the world in six days, literally as described in the Bible) must not find an entry into the Association of Christian Churches in Germany (ACK).“
A Protestant church has already taken the new understanding of a “natural God” to heart and installed an over-dimensional model of the earth called “Gaia” in its “church” as an “art object” (Info).
Sunday is clearly on the rise as a legal day of rest for both church and secular circles. Project 2025 in the USA even envisages discriminating against those who do not observe Sunday as a day of rest. The obligation of Sunday automatically entails a prohibition on observing the biblical Sabbath. This was initially with approved special rules. These will probably be replaced by further privileges for observing Sunday, including economic exclusions if this Sunday law is ignored (Revelation 13).
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
