The 2023 Sermon Prize in the category goes to the well-known “climate activist” Luisa Neubauer. A “climate theologian” apparently discovered by the jury, working for the “preservation of creation”. The new nature religion is manifested and remains a pure question of faith.

Life’s work under 30 years old

Receiving a lifetime achievement award at the age of 27 can certainly be viewed from two perspectives. Either the achievements were so phenomenal that nothing equivalent can be demonstrated so far, or one suspects that the prize recipient has already run out of steam at this young age and nothing more can be expected.

The millionaire’s daughter and long-term student Luisa Neubauer (27 years old), described as a climate activist, will receive the Ecumenical Sermon Prize in the Lifetime Achievement category this year. This award will be presented to her on October 16th in the Castle Church of the University of Bonn.

Award from EV Faculty of Theology

Fridays for Future

Climate and nature protection – new religion – question of faith

The “Sermon Prize Bonn” has been awarded annually since 2000 by the Verlag für die Deutsche Wirtschaft (VNR-Verlag), a member of the Rentrop publishing group. In 2018, responsibility for the Sermon Prize was transferred to the Evangelical Theological Faculty of the University of Bonn. In 2023, “Verlag am Birnbach” will also be involved for the first time. A publishing house that specializes in Christian written works. In 2021, EKD Council Chairwoman Annette Kurschus received the Sermon Prize in the Lifetime Achievement category.

The chairman of the jury for the sermon prize is Wolfgang Thielmann, a journalist and Protestant theologian. Currently working, among other things, as a pastor in the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland. The jury is predominantly made up of Protestant theologians. A representative from the “Catholic faction” is Jürgen Werbick, a Roman Catholic theologian.

Neubauer, the “secret climate theologian”

Since this award is called the Sermon Prize and the jury is entirely made up of theologians, it must clearly be an award with a Christian background. The justification for presenting this life’s work award to the “Fridays for Future activist” Luisa Neubauer doesn’t seem particularly convincing.

The jury is of the opinion that Luisa Neubauer’s thoughts and speeches contained leitmotifs relating to religious contexts. This is visible upon “closer inspection”. This primarily concerns existential questions. In this she makes an important contribution to the current preaching culture in the global climate crisis.

Main Category Sermon Award

The best sermon in the main category of this award was given to the Old Catholic candidate for the priesthood Nathalie Schuler. The jury is of the opinion that Schuler was able to justify her “factually differentiated and rhetorically skilful communication” theologically. This description concerns a speech that Schuler gave during a “church service” for Christopher Street Day. The aspiring Old Catholic priest describes herself as “queer”.

Churches – hostel for climate activists

More and more Protestant churches are now even replacing the communion celebrations announced on the program with a discussion group with “climate activists”. The main programs of the “Church Day 2023” event clearly demonstrated the reorientation of the once Protestant churches. Stripped of the gospel, these institutions focus almost exclusively on communicating the political agenda of the climate crisis and package it all in empty Christian phrases such as “preservation of creation.”

Worship in paganism

Occult sun worship

Churches think their ‘services’ are ancient pagan gods

According to the specified conditions of the sermon award, only sermons are eligible for participation if the sermon was delivered in German as part of a “church service”. The question now arose as to whether the speeches about nature and climate issues were actually “church services” from the churches’ perspective. The pagans, who worshiped nature and especially the sun, also described their rituals as a “worship”.

Therefore, climate policy speeches about climate protection could also be recognized as a “sermon” as part of a pagan service. Just as it was practiced in ancient Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Greece and also in ancient and papal Rome. In this sense, calling Luisa Neubauer a “climate theologian” is not that far-fetched. It “only” concerns paganism, but not the gospel, which the once Protestant churches still claim to stand on.

The image of the (first) beast

Read the Bible yourself

Read the Bible yourself and check statements from the churches

All of this is very reminiscent of the descriptions of the “beast from the earth” (false prophet) who carries out the things that the “beast from the sea” (popery) dictates (z.B. Laudato Si’), in Revelation 13:12-15:

And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
