Now Pentecost is also needed to serve the socio-political narratives dictated by Rome. Right at the front and with visible enthusiasm again the chairwoman of the EKD. Apparently Kurschus doesn’t even notice that she indirectly condemns the Holy Spirit as a “fanatical dogmatist”.

Pentecost in the sign of ecumenism
With the approach of a Christian feast, the Chairwoman of the Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) spoke up again. Pentecost is now approaching and Annette Kurschus explains to people what this holiday is all about and what consequences this could have for cooperation within society. The evangelical theologian’s Pentecost message was published by the internet portal evangelisch.de.
Pentecost – lies – truths
The EKD council chairperson quickly associates Pentecost, which is so important for Christianity, with “lie and truth”. According to Kurschus, there is a “boom” of lies. Accordingly, false news is “spread with relish” and a lie must “be as bold as possible, then it wins over fanatically convinced people who fill entire stadiums,” said the theologian with a “suggestion of” polemics.
In addition to the emergence of more and more fanatically convinced people, Kurschus also sees a flare-up of “frighteningly authoritarian truth rage”. Instead of exchanging different opinions, many people “stand their truth absolutely”. “There is no truth without love,” according to the truth of the EKD council chairmen, who apparently claim to be absolute. “Loveless truth is dogmatism, at worst it becomes fanatical fundamentalism”. While this assertion is anything but valid, it creates the necessary bridge to be able to connect your thesis with Pentecost. Incidentally, the liberal theologian transports the term “fundamentalism” into the desired negative corner.
Just a story?
According to Kurschus, the “biblical story of Pentecost” works like a “spirit of truth”. This spirit does not separate according to right or wrong, but connects people of different nationalities, religions and generations. “This spirit can currently be a precious gift,” said the chairwoman of the Association of Regional Churches.
Pentecost is a celebration of the human community
The Bishop of Hanover, Ralf Meister, has similar views on the background to the Pentecost holidays. He is also the Presiding Bishop of the United Evangelical Lutheran Church in Germany (VELKD). Accordingly, Pentecost makes it clear that human suffering can also be understood at a great distance. As an example, according to evangelisch.de, Meister cites the war in the Ukraine, which “again and again gets under your skin.” With Pentecost, people learn that the happiness of others is also our happiness. Pentecost is a day when everyone is extremely happy anyway. For this reason, these feast days are a celebration of the human community, according to the bishop.
The narrative must be served
The EKD chairwoman, a Protestant theologian and therefore actually familiar with the gospel, at least that is the assumption, has little to do with the content and statements of the Holy Scriptures. Rather, she uses the Christian feast days to promote the socio-political narrative with sometimes ludicrously constructed contexts. Kurschus has already impressively demonstrated this with her Good Friday message.
The background of Pentecost is definitely a reason for people to be in a good mood. But this must also be carefully concealed by the EKD Council President. This is solely due to ecumenism. Pentecost stands for the day on which the Holy Spirit, which had already been announced by Jesus Christ, was poured out on the apostles. The corresponding feast days began (actually) on the 6th day of the Hebrew month Sivan. Today only the temporal distance to Easter fits, but this in turn is based on a pagan tradition of the Roman Catholic Church.
Holy Spirit a fanatical fundamentalist?
The Holy Spirit of God represents the Truth with a legitimate claim to absoluteness. A fact that should actually make the EKD Council President flush with anger. Consequently, Kurschus would have to accuse the Holy Spirit of “unloving dogmatism”. As a “theologian” one can assume that she knows the truth of the Bible. But instead, as a precaution, she classifies people who represent the truth of the Bible as “fanatical fundamentalists”. Kurschus could hardly justify her own thesis about the connection with Pentecost with the Bible. This is already shown by their representation that the Holy Spirit “could” be a gift. As if this spirit of God, sent by Jesus Christ as His representative, would only really come when it suited the spirit of the times. Completely misunderstood by her and completely wrong.
It wouldn’t all be that dramatic and could simply be left in the room as an erroneous opinion. But the EKD claims to represent the legacy of Luther and other reformers, telling people the truth and caring for their salvation. But with such statements that the Holy Spirit “does not separate between right and wrong” all hope of repentance seems to have already been lost. This church is more and more openly practicing as a mouthpiece of Rome (see Revelation 13 from verse 11) and thus represents the complete opposite. When it came to the promise of a lucrative 45 percent interest rate for an investment within a quarter, it hit the greedy contemporaries in particular and only their money. But with messages like this, this church leads its entrusted and mostly unsuspecting followers straight into the abyss with a big smile. It’s not about making money, it’s about people’s lives.
Just play with open cards
Such churches should simply remove the label of Christianity and write the truth on their label: “False Prophet”. With this, even carefree people could see what is actually in the bottle.
The Protestant Churches together with Babylon are fallen, fallen. This is also proven by the regional bishop of Hanover, whose interpretation of the Pentecost holidays does not consult the Bible, but the explanations of the encyclical “Fratelli Tutti” by Pope Francis. In the spirit of fraternity and the united human family.
