The pope and Obama believe climate change is a moral issue - Posted: January 30, 2015

In an article dated 01/30/2015 in The Guardian, Suzanne Goldenberg from Washington reports the following:

Obama 'is aligned' with pope on seeing climate change as a moral issue.

America's top environmental official has assured the Vatican that the pope and Barack Obama are singing from the same hymnal when it comes to fighting climate change.

In a visit to the Vatican, Gina McCarthy, the head of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), conveyed a message to the pope that Obama shared his view that fighting climate change was a moral obligation.

"I want him to know that the president is aligned with him on these issues and that we are taking action in the United States," McCarthy told the National Catholic Reporter ahead of the meeting.

She went so far as to suggest that Obama was "working with the pope" when it came to climate change.

That alliance, between Obama and the pope, followed from the view that leaders have a moral duty to preserve the earth and protect those most at risk from the consequences of climate change, McCarthy said.1

According to the article, the pope and President Obama are aligning themselves on the issue of climate change as a "moral obligation." Three times the article states that the pope and the President see the issue as morally important.

Should we be concerned? Yes, we should. This may have little to do with a moral obligation toward climate change and more about consolidating power between the United States and the Catholic Church behind the guise of moralism. It has everything to do with power, but not for good.

Pope Francis is using all his political savvy to align himself with world leaders and religious leaders to forge an alliance so that the Catholic Church will regain her lost supremacy.

The Catholic Church is the most dangerous religio-political institution that threatens liberty of conscience and freedom of life. And she needs the power of the civil government. Soon she will have it through the cooperation of the United States of America.

Revelation 13:11-12,15-17 KJV

v.11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

The beast that "had two horns like a lamb [but] spake as a dragon" is the United States of America that reverses liberty of worship, free market and life.

v.12 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.

The first beast "whose deadly wound was healed" refers to the Roman Catholic Church reemergence to power.

v.15 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.

v.16 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:

v.17 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.

The "image of the beast" is the union of church and state. It is the combined strength of the Protestant churches of America with the civil arm of the United States government at the orchestration of the Catholic Church.

This church/state union will deprive Bible commandment keeping people of three cornerstones of America life.

1. Restriction of Religious Liberty - "causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast..." The mark of the Roman Catholic Church is Sunday observance. Forced worship on Sunday is the "mark of the beast" Rev 19:20.

2. Restriction of a Free Market - "that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark..." God's people will not be able to buy or sell because they stand behind the Ten Commandments of God, specifically the command to "Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy."

3. Deprivation of Life - "that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." God's commandment keeping people will be told to yield their faith in the Bible or die.

You might ask, what will bring such a reversal of American life?

It is climate change, the destructive power of natural calamities. People will run to God and back to their churches. The professed Christian churches of America will then seize control through civil laws.

Yes, God will "...destroy them which destroy the earth" Revelation 11:18. Natural calamities will occur because of those who enrich themselves at the expense of exploiting natural resources by destroying the earth.

But the primary issues are far deeper.

One of the primary catalyst behind the cataclysmic natural calamities that will shortly grip this nation, the United States of America, is from its moral decline in support of same-sex unions.

By legalizing same-sex unions in America, this country is tampering with the very fabric of human existence established by our Creator. America is turning its back on its Creator who made man and woman to exist in heterosexual marriage. By turning our back on Biblical marriage - we turn our back on God. The second step will be to turn on our Creator by instituting Sunday observance in place of worshipping our Creator God on the Sabbath.

However, it is this first step of legalizing same-sex unions that will bring devastating natural calamities upon this country. The Creator holds creation within physical boundaries that perpetuate life. If we remove the boundary around marriage as ordained by God, God will begin to remove His boundaries from nature and destruction will follow. Satan will unleash his fury.

Where does President Obama and Pope Francis stand on this great moral issue?

Do a Google search and you will find that President Obama endorses same-sex unions and Pope Francis is indifferent. Their combined acceptance and indifference towards the immorality of same-sex unions will bring about the very natural calamities that they claim to be morally against in climate change.

Therefore, their commitment to climate change may have nothing to do with morality and everything to do with power. It is Satan's last desperate attempt to gain control of the world before the second coming of Christ.

One last point on the Constitutional right of same-sex unions...

The Declaration of Independence is not part of our Constitution, but it speaks to how government is to govern.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..."

The men who drafted the Declaration of Independence understood that we as American citizens are endowed by our Creator "with certain unalienable Rights." The Creator has NOT endowed human beings with the right of same-sex unions. Because in the creation account God made us male and female joined in a procreative union.

The lawmakers back then were probably more God fearing men. Many lawmakers today are far from God.
