The evangelical bishop Christian Stäblein sees the church as having a duty to act as a prophet of modern times in the face of the threatening “climate catastrophes”. The arguments for this, however, do not come from the gospel, but show the handwriting of Rome through and through.

The climate catastrophe mainly affects poorer regions

The church has the task of calling people to change in view of “climate change”, according to the bishop’s view on RBB radio, as evangelisch.de reported. The “climate catastrophe” must now really be understood. Mankind must change course. This has long been shown by extreme weather such as drought, storms and heat “in our country, but even more so in mostly poorer regions of our one world,” says Stäblein.

EV bishop uses the Laudato si’

In doing so, the evangelical bishop uses the narrative of Laudato si’, the encyclical published by Pope Francis in 2015. With this letter, the Roman Catholic Churches officially add the issue of environment and climate protection to their hodgepodge of (own) dogmas. An essence of “10 green commandments” has been worked out from Laudato si’, the “environmental encyclical”. The “2nd Laudato si’ commandment” reads: “The poor are disproportionately affected by climate change”. The bishop acts here as nothing more than a mouthpiece for Rome.

EV Church has a prophetic mission

The church must “raise its voice loudly” at this point. According to Stäblein, this is the “prophetic mission of the Church”. The Bible describes how prophets “put their finger in the wounds of social grievances in an audible, powerful manner, often with symbolic actions”. With a view to the challenge of climate change, this is also popular today. So-called pastoral words from earlier times are no longer appropriate today. People don’t need clerical tutelage, but rather “the memory of the prerequisites for our lives, including loud prophetic memories.”

False Prophet

EV church wants cath. Spread teachings as a prophet

A prophet of the Bible received his commission from God. A prophet of the Bible, who was also only a fallen man, knew perfectly well that nothing rational can come of himself. Messages, admonitions and corrections of the misguided people were carried out without exception by instructions or promptings of God. However, the Bible also describes false prophets who want to foist their own teachings or those of someone else on their behalf. Peter warned emphatically: “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” (2 Peter 2:1).
The Evangelical Church of Germany (EKD) has long been from Gospel as far away as the east is from the west. She supports the path envisaged by Rome to worship creation rather than the Creator. A practice that was already commonplace in pagan Rome.

Abstaining from consumption is a virtue

The pastor in the church does not have to preach about the “correct speed limit on roads”. This belongs in the parliaments. Nevertheless, it is “obvious to everyone” that “we must not put the brakes on the preservation of creation at all”. Creation is “the first of those conditions that we cannot create for ourselves,” said the bishop. Therefore, slower driving and refraining from consumption are virtues.

EV Bishop professes Catholic social teaching

Again Stäblein uses the philosophy from Laudato si’. Consumption must be restricted, for example in position 51:
“The warming caused by huge consumption on the part of some rich countries has repercussions on the poorest areas of the world, especially Africa, where a rise in temperature, together with drought, has proved devastating for farming.”

In addition, the bishop also reveals his orientation towards Catholic social teaching. This teaching, once by Pope Leo XIII. Announced to the world in 1891 and refreshed by Pope Francis in 2020 via the encyclical Fratelli Tutti, has also declared war on consumption. This can be found in position 35:
“Once this health crisis passes, our worst response would be to plunge even more deeply into feverish consumerism and new forms of egotistic self-preservation.”.
In position 44:
“Even as individuals maintain their comfortable consumerist isolation, they can choose a form of constant and febrile bonding that encourages remarkable hostility, insults, abuse, defamation and verbal violence destructive of others, and this with a lack of restraint that could not exist in physical contact without tearing us all apart.”
In position 222:
“Consumerist individualism has led to great injustice.”

The false prophet comes out

The statement of the evangelical bishop Christian Stäblein on climate change and the position to be taken by the church could not have been better evidence for the justified warnings of the Bible. Mankind is urgently warned against the religious-political system symbolically called Babylon. This modern day Babylon consists of three parts. The dragon, the beast and the false prophet (see Revelation 13). The false prophet appears to be particularly interesting in connection with the explanations of the EV bishop. He carries out the dogmas of the beast before the people. The bishop’s reasoning is based exclusively on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Church. The fact that Stäblein even wants to act through the church with “sign actions” is an additional confirmation of the prophecy in Mark 13:22:
“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.”

Paul summed it up in his second letter to the Corinthians:
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)
