Religious leaders gather in Sinai to receive “Climate Justice Ten Commandments”
By ADAM ELIYAHU BERKOWITZ
Religious leaders gather in Sinai to receive “Climate Justice Ten Commandments”
And Hashem said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. They shall rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the cattle, the whole earth, and all the creeping things that creep on earth.” Genesis 1:26
Some 40,000 attendees have flocked to the Sinai Desert including over 100 world leaders as well as leaders in business and other sectors. Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and other religious figures will participate in a UN conference on climate change that is taking place this week and next. In conjunction with the UN event, a group of faith leaders is taking an alternative approach, seeking a faith-based solution to the ecological crisis by promoting the “Ten Principles for Climate Justice” in a global initiative.
The multifaith initiative- led by the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development (ICSD), The Elijah Interfaith Institute, andthe Peace Department – is part of the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27), which is taking place in the Sinai Peninsula, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from November 6-18.
According to the Interfaith Center, the location of COP27 is especially meaningful because the Sinai Desert is “a place of revelation in the collective consciousness of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and others. It is a site for turning to God and receiving God’s message,” as they explained in a press release.
On Sunday, the organization will hold a “Climate Repentance Ceremonies” and “put forth a prophetic interreligious call to action.”
The partnering organizations initially intended to hold the Climate Repentance Ceremony and Ten Commandments events at Jebel Musa in the southern Sinai Peninsula. The area is traditionally believed to be the location of the biblical Mount Sinai, a site of great significance in the Bible and considered holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Unfortunately, the Egyptian government chose not to permit the main interfaith event to be held at Jabal Musa due to security concerns so the central venue for Sunday’s events was changed to London, a location that was readily accessible to faith leaders around the world and is a major media hub, as well as other locations. A small group of faith leaders will be allowed to ascend Jabal Mus and hold a repentance ceremony as originally planned.
Concurrent faith-based events will be held at Mt. Abu India, Rishikesh in the Himalayas, New York City, Ecuador, Germany, Vienna, Salt Lake City, Mount St. Francis in Indiana, and Australia, joining faith leaders from many denominations including Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and others.
The organizers have also urged houses of worship around the world to join in at the same time on Sunday with prayer and study focused on this “transformative moment to protect our environment.”
Despite the change of venue, the Biblical significance and Mt. Sinai are still central themes of the event, as Rabbi Yonatan Neril, the founder and Executive Director of The Interfaith Center, explained.
“Some people believe religion is separate and distinct from ecology or care for God’s creation,” he said. “Were it not for the receiving of the Hebrew Bible on Mt. Sinai, Jewish tradition teaches, God would have returned the world to chaos and void. Applying the teachings of the Hebrew Bible to stewardship of God’s creation is not just an idea for today, but essential for a future in which we achieve a balanced, worldwide ecosystem and thrive on a planet viable for all life.” …
“We need to change the operating system that humanity generated and is degrading God’s creation,” he said. “We need to switch from greed, short-term thinking, and individualistic behavior to spiritual satisfaction, long-term thinking, and altruism. And by doing that we will address the symptoms of the problem and manifest a new earth. May God help us.”
Rabbi Neril sees faith and religion as playing essential roles in the solution.
“Leveraging faith communities to move the needle around climate advocacy is a deeply needed and worthwhile effort,” he explained. “While the national political culture is so divided, faith is this common ground that can soften the boundaries and open hearts and minds.”
Toward this end, Rabbi Neril authored the “Eco Bible An Ecological Commentary” which describes ecology as “achieving a more sustainable future in accordance with God’s Will.
Egypt’s Mount Sinai – just a hop, skip and a jump from Israel – is the site most commonly known as the place where God appeared to Moses to give him the Ten Commandments – the primary covenant in Judaism, as well as the foundation for most other religions and many modern-day laws.
Now, this mountain will be a venue for many nations to gather, to receive their newest creed emanating from the world’s highest and most exalted religion of “Climate Change.”
Yes – climate change has become the latest addition to world religions, leaving others in the dust as it endeavors to bond and solidify all people under the banner of “caring for the planet,” which – it implies – translates into “caring for one another.” Who would be against such lofty goals?
All are invited to participate in an auspicious conference, COP27, to take place Nov. 6-18, 2022 at Sharm El Sheikh, in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. The name COP27 refers to the 27th annual meeting of the United Nations’ Conference of Parties.
But, this year, there is a greater focus on extending an invitation to “religious communities and religious leaders who are believed to have a key role to play in addressing climate change and criminal justice, which requires deep transformation within society” (interfaithsustain.com). The call for ceremonial repentance for failing the planet is, consequently, going to be front and center.
This “interfaith” climate conference, predictably sponsored by the U.N., seeks to be “transformative, inspirational and heart-stirring.” Conference goals include changes in attitude and heart, new vision and the putting forth of climate justice via the “ten universal commandments.”
The U.N. has invited all the world’s religions with the hope of drawing together inspirational teaching and spiritual ideals towards the goal of perpetuating “collective survival.”
Within the exploration of these various topics, the world’s communities will be challenged to reflect on how they personally are meeting the goals of climate change – sounding eerily similar to the way today’s corporations are being encouraged to view their operations through the lens of ESG (Environment, Social, Governance), for the purpose of obtaining social approval from globalists, with their specific agendas.
The conference will attempt to tap into the power of religions, with their leaders becoming the agents of change as they motivate their communities to fall in line. There are already takers in the queue.
Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Archbishop Tapio Luoma has expressed his full support for this conference on YouTube, stating its totally consistency with the annual ecumenical responsibility week, whose purpose is to make people reflect and evaluate their own lifestyle as it relates to the state of the world. …
Luoma exhorts everyone to adopt a new order which will pursue being carbon neutral by 2030, something the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church hopes to accomplish itself. …
While this new climate religion promises a kinder, more thoughtful world in which everyone is to look out for their fellow man, all of that goodwill comes at the great discomfort and suffering of ordinary people, who must learn to sweat or freeze, depending upon the season. The religion demands it!
This is no Messianic dawn, filled with hope and redemption. Instead, this faith devours its adherents, leaving in its wake lack and want.
Don’t waste any time signing up for this “holy doctrine,” whereby salvation is an ever-evolving path toward intense suffering for humanity, which excludes a God of love, compassion and hope.
The religions of the world might be forewarned not to heed the call of unity toward futile, self-serving goals, which will only benefit a small, select few, but which ultimately will plunge humanity into an abyss of horror.
In Sinai, a Prophetic Call for Climate Justice and Ceremony of Repentance
On Monday, Nov. 14 at 9 am, ICSD is organizing an interfaith climate event with religious leaders speaking, in the Israeli exhibition within the Blue Zone. Speakers include H.E. Metropolitan Serafim Kykotis, Sr. Maureen Goodman, James Sternlicht, and Rabbi Yonatan Neril. …
“Bringing Religion to Bear on the Climate Emergency.”
In an effort to encourage clergy to teach and preach on climate change during COP 27, we have made available the following free resources:
- Abraham and Torah teachings on Climate Change
- COP27 – Solidarity And Endurance For Climate Justice: Malachi 4 And Luke 21
- For materials on Islam and climate change, click here.
- For materials on Hinduism and climate change, click here.
Who: The London climate repentance ceremony will involve world religious leaders, primarily from the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders.
To quote former Vice President Biden-
“Is this a joke?”
More proof (as if any more was needed) that climate alarm is akin to a religious belief. It even has mega church pastors known as climate modelers. All that is left is belief when all the ‘sciencey’ predictions have been wrong for now 4 decades.
Nothing to do with real science.
The new “science” demands all non-supporting data/evidence be ignored/altered.
When reality isn’t cooperating, you might as well add some razzle-dazzle. 😉
I think you mean “soothsayers”
An admission the whole thing is just religious mumbo jumbo?
I have the greatest of respect for those of faith, but these morons are jumping on the climate change bandwagon in order to promote their faiths which are largely dying a death.
They’re are like Kathryn Hayhoe does with her evangelical faith. They aligning their faith-based religion with a pagan worship of environmentalism and creating some weird non-Christian hybrid that demands they recognize a new deity equivalent the Holy Trinity, and now a quartet with an added deity called Environmentalism, or aka Gaia.
The Holy-pagan Quartet: The Father, The Son, The Holy, and Gaia.
Eventually, the First three will be dispatched by the Marxists, only to have Gaia remain in order to control the dumbed-down masses.
Their ceremony seems to be the definition of sacrilegious to me.
Well, it does fit a religious movement well. The Plagues of Egypt now include CAGW?
Really, there is a taste for millenarian theology, with a different set of “sins” to be expiated. Noting to the Jews or Christians that this is pagan Gaia worship will draw some explanation that is mostly content free, devoted to denouncing any questioner as a sinner.
Thou shalt have no God before government
Thou shalt not desire more than government thinks you should have
Thou shalt not covet thy government representative’s excesses.
Well now. It seems not so much of a stretch to see the recent “climate” legislation from Congress as a violation of the establishment clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Funny that all those green Marxists who eschewed traditional religions have now come complete circle.
Of course, the Deity this time around is not God or Allah or Jesus, it’s Gaia.
No, the god is government, Gaia is just a front.
It is the replacement of western judeo-christian civilization with the secular progressive movement. It only has a bit of spitiruality rught now, to gather people in, but eventually they will drop it, or demote it to a minor function. The ultimate goal is one world government, ruled by the Smart People™, who know what is good for all of us.
At least we can all have a good chuckle when they realize they’ve been duped. Well, except for the billions or so who will face hard times due to starvation and energy poverty.
The cult will be demanding not only money from everyone via corrupt governments but also sacrificial offerings; the nutters will soon be dousing themselves in an effort to outdo each other.
I’ll supply the match.
No need, they all drive EVs
Most religions, certainly the Abrahamic religions, strongly endorse caring for God’s creation. It is seen to be good.
Now, that’s a clear policy aim. It provides the wisdom that should guide the intentions of our leaders and also of us, the people.
But it does not say what policy will actually achieve that end.
It may be economic growth that allows society to care for the environment by providing the usable resources to do so.
They conflate the Biblical command to be good stewards of the earth, a data-driven goal, with “doing something” about human CO2, a fatuous exercise based on pure speculation and no data at all.
This is a nice point.
I am an ardent conservationist yet also an ardent duck/goose/grouse/deer/trout Hunter/fisher. That means I must tend and preserve their natural habitat, and never over hunt/fish them.
I’ve largely aged out of the duck/goose/grouse/deer/trout Hunter/fisher things and spend time and money feeding Black Oil Sunflower seeds to the native quail, and trying to keep the deer, Merriam Turkeys (introduced), bear and Eurasian collared doves (invasive) from intervening.
” Now the famine was severe *** So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets [of Baal] on Mount Carmel. ***
… they called on the name of Baal from morning till noon. “Baal, answer us!” they shouted. But there was no response; no one answered. And they danced around the altar they had made.
At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps, he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.”
So, they shouted louder … and they continued their frantic prophesying …
But, there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention. ***”
I. Kings 18:2-29. (emphases mine)
Whom do they think they are fooling?
Janice, we rarely agree on politics (as opposed to science). No-one would accuse you of being a socialist.
But on this one, I think we are in complete agreement.
If they were praying for wisdom, I’d be with them.
But they pray for power. Without asking if this power is used for God’s purposes or their own.
And we agree on the most important thing: Jesus. 😊
By the way….. I pray almost daily for your dad. How is he?
He’s still with us. It was close earlier in the year when he got a chest infection. He has a helper in three times a day to keep the place in order and check that he’s coping.
It’s surprising to his doctors that he’s lasted this long.
You may recall from when he was well enough to post here, that he doesn’t give up easily.
Richard did some great work in the old CRE and helped me a lot with some technical challenges faced, particularly in Barnsley & Selby. One of the best Scientists I ever came across.
Give him my very best wishes.
Please, add my heartfelt, “Hello, Richard! Praying for you.😔 God is near.”
I did. He remembered you both.
So long as Martin Brumby was the guy who made his ideas for the Selby thing practical. He wasn’t well enough to tell me what exactly that was.
He thanked you for the prayers and praised Martin Brumby for being a skilled engineer (which is so rare these days).
In my opinion there are lots of good, young engineers whom I’ve worked with, but they happen to all be from the sub-continent.
Thank you, Matt. Praying for you, too.
Knowing you will see a loved one again makes saying “farewell, for the present,” a little easier. Knowing that it won’t be long until they leave is, nevertheless, still hard.
The gross inaccuracy of their prophecies proves their religion is false:
That graph needs continuing to 2022 at the end of the year.
Yes, but 🤔 …. (i.e., the point is made with the graph as it is).
Absolutely correct Janice.
If the data does not agree with observations they try and change the observations .
All of the models run hot and diverge upwards from the observations .
The models are not fit for purpose and they should all be scrapped .
No other branch of science could take action to fix a so called problem using models that are so far from reality .
Global warming /climate change has become a religion with the true believers predicting the end of the world .
That shindig in Egypt COP out 27 is a gigantic waste of money and time for the true believers as they are following a false god .
Mike Mans hockey stick and now useless models .
Without these faulty models what have the warmists got ?
Changing observations is called “homogenization, cleaning and smoothing” of the data.
But there is this inconvenient truth about “unprecedented” global warming – so much for “follow the science”…
First time I have seen the RCP of 4.5 on one off these charts good to know that this is not something silly like RCP 8.5 so that doubt is removed
But, but, but….Gavin said the average of the models somehow gave the right answer!
Perhaps he meant the answer the climate cabal wanted
What they mean is that when accurate error bars on both the model output and the temperature data are given, there is still some overlap between the two ranges.
It is a site for
turning to God and receiving God’s message,” [doing a major promotion event for solar, wind, electric/hybrid vehicles, etc.] ...
Oh dear! The human race really is headed for extinction.
it really is worse than we thought.
I think I woke up on the wrong planet this morning.
I vote Mel Brooks for the role of Moses!
Mel Brooks has said that Hollywood won’t let him make any more movies. He can’t get past the censors.
Inferential faith: from the few, a universe is created.
So… this is religion adopting climate alarmism, to do what… maintain their chair in the virtue hierarchy? 🤔😣
Mostly I think it is an attempt to stay relevant. Traditional religion has been losing followers like crazy, and the leadership has decided to sell their souls to keep their jobs. Most churches have long left traditional teaching in favor of the secular flavor of the day.
Organised religion has never been virtuous
(No disrespect to individuals who believe in god or gods)
The science unbelievers have made themselves a golden calf. (with our gold)
The first commandment should read: “Thou shall not base climate policy on Climate Models”
I think that was is covered by “Shall not take any other gods before me.” The first commandment has two or three parts depending on which translation is used.
“Thou shalt not bare false witness” would certainly ban most of what calls itself climate science these days.
How ironic that Exodus 20:2 calls Egypt, “the land of slavery,”
and in 2022, this bunch of crooks gathered in Egypt to plot how to enslave the free world in chains forged from lies about human CO2.
Can you imagine mingling amongst this crowd and listening to their various conversations. I think it would be both fascinating and bizarre, kinda like be transported back to the dark ages.
These people are nuts need I say anymore
“Egypt’s Mount Sinai to receive ‘Climate Justice Ten Commandments’ during UN summit – Interfaith ‘Climate Repentance Ceremonies”
Its authors soon to be known as the Dead Sea Scolds.
And who shall play the role of God in this cheezy drama?
No one. As one can see from their words and deeds, God almost certainly has nothing to do with this. “God’s will” is their quaint way of saying, “what makes us money.”
Edit: On second thought, given their claim to believe in God, make that “their BLASPHEMOUS way of saying… .”
“describes ecology as achieving a more sustainable future in accordance with God’s Will.”
Precisely where and when was this “God’s will” recorded?
Surely we can use objective observation and measurement now, so as not to rely on muck and mystery. Some of us are grown-ups. Geoff S
I was deeply impressed by and have had my life guided by that most religious of movies, “Blazing Saddles”.
“Work, work, work!”
“White people is so stupid”.
Some certainly are
I tell you what.
Instead of this woke, virtue signalling fashion parade, how about asking their hosts about what happened to Alexandria & Cairo’s historic and vibrant Jewish Community? 80,000 strong in 1948, now less than 100.?
Did they all die out because of climate change? Perhaps sea level rise in the Med?
And then the are the much larger and equally ancient community of the Copts. Do their Churches (but not Mosques, apparently) keep on catching fire because of the (alleged) 1ºC temperature rise over the last 170 years?
Let’s sort out the “reparations” for all that, before having conniption fits about the cruel fate faced by the Maldives in 80 years time. (Perhaps the concrete and steel in their 7 new airports might have been more wisely used for sea defences?)
I hope that the ten principals for climate justice include replacing modern petroleum powered cars and busses and airplanes with walking …
That would be “Climate Justice.”
Pseudo-religious shenanigans of a doomsday cult, nothing more, nothing less – just like the entire COP #XYZ theater/shindig has been for years…
what was that about worshiping false idols?
The area attracts them unfortunately. Took my wife to Jerusalem, Dead Sea, Masada in 2016, fully recommend it, but the crazed nut bars filming videos of themselves while discussing their fetishes in these locations was funny/terrifying all the time.
I guess worshiping an angry, anti science, Marxist slogan spouting teenager didn’t work out so well (-:
Or the polar bears dying off fake crisis. Or any of the other ones the past 3+ decades.
They removed the 1989 date and title on this article below to try to hide it.
Here’s the original one:
“United Nations Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked
Associated Press – Jun 29, 1989″
If you want to REALLY scare people about a crisis, creative marketing schemes will have a limited impact…………..when there is no real crisis!
Now in propaganda theaters near you, starring John Kerry as Moses and Greta as one of the predicted plagues.
Is that really what Greta’s hair looks like from the back?
I am afraid the Biblical references do not say or even imply, what the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development’s links claim.
Strange and odd interpretations there.
That said, it is the responsibility of Mankind to care for the Earth and to use the resources provided by the Earth wisely and without waste.
But Christianity does not demand support for the current raft of nutty environmental demands being made at these IPCC confabs.
God sent Jesus Christ to save Mankind, not the whales.
Adam had the power and authority and spirit (the “image of God) before he sinned.
Then he lost it all.
The “thorns and thistle stuff wasn’t “punishment” but rather the consequence of not having the power and authority anymore. Someone else (temporally) has that authority now. (Luke 4:6, 2 Corinthians 4:4)
These people are preaching “another gospel”. (Galatians 1:6-9)
Bowing down to the new secular religion.
There is only one “faith based” solution available. They are going to pray for colder weather.
Tell me that the climate changers are not a religion of Earth worshipers. I am fairly sure that they will be sacrificing babies and virgins before this is over.
There clearly aren’t any ‘Christian’ leaders in that bunch.
Can y’all hang yourself on a crucifix…
