Pope Francis Says That Man-Made ‘Global Warming’ Is A ‘Sin’ That Humans Must Repent Of

The Pope said that the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation was instituted in order to give believers an opportunity to “reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation.” It also furnishes an occasion to thank God for the gift of creation, to implore his help for its protection and to beg “his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”

In his message for the ‘World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation’ Thursday, Pope Francis said that human-induced global warming, as well as a loss of biodiversity are “sins” against God, which must be atoned for by planting trees, avoiding the use of plastic and paper and “separating refuse.”

“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” Romans 1:25 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Pope Francis has the ear of hundreds of millions of people across the globe, and you would think he would use that pulpit to tell people they need to be born again according to John 3:3. right? Wrong-O! He uses his massive influence and audience to tell people that they are committing the “sin of global warming”, and to “repent” of polluting to save Mother Earth.

Pope Francis is preaching the religion of Earth Worship, otherwise known as Gaia.

“Global warming continues, due in part to human activity,” Francis said, adding that “2015 was the warmest year on record, and 2016 will likely be warmer still.”

“This is leading to ever more severe droughts, floods, fires and extreme weather events. Climate change is also contributing to the heart-rending refugee crisis. The world’s poor, though least responsible for climate change, are most vulnerable and already suffering its impact,” he wrote.

Repeatedly citing the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who has “courageously and prophetically continued to point out our sins against creation,” Francis made his own a new list of such environmental sins, which include pollution, global warming and deforestation.

For human beings to “destroy the biological diversity of God’s creation,” to “degrade the integrity of the earth by causing changes in its climate,” to “contaminate the earth’s waters, its land, its air, and its life–these are sins,” he wrote.

Summing up, the Pope stated that “to commit a crime against the natural world is a sin against ourselves and a sin against God.”

Lamenting “the devastation of the environment,” Francis said that “God gave us a bountiful garden, but we have turned it into a polluted wasteland of debris, desolation and filth.” Specifically regarding a loss of biodiversity, the Pope suggested that now there are fewer species to give glory to God.

“We must not be indifferent or resigned to the loss of biodiversity and the destruction of ecosystems, often caused by our irresponsible and selfish behavior,” Francis said. “Because of us, thousands of species will no longer give glory to God by their very existence, nor convey their message to us. We have no such right.”

Press Conference on Pope’s Message for World Day for the Care of Creation – 01.09.2016

The Pope said that the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation was instituted in order to give believers an opportunity to “reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation.” It also furnishes an occasion to thank God for the gift of creation, to implore his help for its protection and to beg “his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”

During this Jubilee Year, “let us learn to implore God’s mercy for those sins against creation that we have not hitherto acknowledged and confessed,” Francis said, while proposing that Christians need to undergo an “ecological conversion.”

Now is the time to “acknowledge our sins against creation,” the Pope said. “Inasmuch as we all generate small ecological damage,” we are called to acknowledge “our contribution, smaller or greater, to the disfigurement and destruction of creation.”

“Let us repent of the harm we are doing to our common home,” he added.

If our ecological conversion is real, Francis said, it will lead to concrete ways of thinking and acting that are more respectful of creation.

Among these are “avoiding the use of plastic and paper, reducing water consumption, separating refuse, cooking only what can reasonably be consumed, showing care for other living beings, using public transport or car-pooling, planting trees, turning off unnecessary lights, or any number of other practices.”

In his message, the Pope also applauded “a growing global political consensus” regarding the environment, praising the adoption of “Sustainable Development Goals” as well as last December’s Paris Agreement on climate change, “which set the demanding yet fundamental goal of halting the rise of the global temperature.” source

  • For the Last Couple of years, I have been observing what Pope Francis speaks about…and it all sounds he agrees with all The Commie inspired Liberal whackos…A few months ago he was pandering to Bring into every nation, lots of Muslim Refugees like Syrians, etc. He even Flew a 747 home to Rome with 12 on board as our example to follow
    And just so happned Obama was bringing in Thousands of Muslim “Refugees” at the same time worldwide, what a “Surprise” (Cough, Cough).

    He stood next to The U.S Border on the Mexican side and renounced building a Wall to keep Illegals from entering Our Country illegally.

    Of Course, the Vatican has one of tbe highest walls standing to keep intruders out of the Vatican; but how we dare to mention this “Minor”Fact”!!

    The Pope is a Jesuit, The CIA of The Vatican dressed in Religious garments to keep up the daily Charade.

    No difference between Tbe Pope, Obama, even Hillary..

  • As a former Catholic, I asked God to forgive me of my many sins! Not the pope or a priest!
    We are entering the time of Tribulation spoken of by The Lord Jesus Christ!
    Get ready, body of Christ!
    It is at the door!

  • Jesus is Lord

    I wonder how people do not realize that this man is false. How can it be so clear but they still dont see
    Most of this world is truly living in darkness it seems

  • The Father of our church needs to evaluate his priorities. Killing Christians seems to be more important than global warming. If he cannot then he needs to step down! He sounds like the progressive idiots who are trying to send in the U. N.

  • I cannot say what I think, of an old ignorant person, in his fancy gowns ! I pray God forgives me for what I’m thinking .

  • Patrice

    As a former catholic also, each day I thank God that he delivered me from such an apostate religion. Jesus is my mediator, no priest, nor Mary, nor saints. I go directly to the top man, Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord for choosing me to be a fruit filled branch on your tree of life.

    If we can atone for our sin by “avoiding the use of plastic and paper, reducing water consumption, separating refuse, cooking only what can reasonably be consumed, showing care for other living beings, using public transport or car-pooling, planting trees, turning off unnecessary lights, or any number of other practices ” then what suggestions does he have for covering up our other daily sins ?

  • Jerry Courtney

    Well spoken

  • This Abomination Pope Francis is WRONG and NOT holy!!

    Our True God said: “There is none RIGHTEOUS no not one.”!!

    Our True God the Father who art in Heaven CONTROL’S the Weather ( Universe ) and the EARTH from Heaven Above!!

    JoAnn Barrick, I feel the same way. As I looked at him in the picture above with the other puppets next to him, I wasn’t thinking anything nice, so I must ask for God to forgive me too for my thoughts. It’s too bad the Catholics think he’s God’s right hand man, which is Jesus, and the Popester doesn’t come close. He should be collecting Social Security and sitting on the beach in Florida drinking a mint julep. He’s an old geezer that doesn’t practice what he preaches. Okay, I have to ask God for forgiveness again!

  • Pediphelia? Not a problem. Homosexuality? Naaa, no problema. Etc, etc, etc. Turn the lights on or fill the gas tank. Say 100 our fathers and 500 Hail Marys while crawling on broken glass. The man is possessed.

    @Char, I agree, and he is just an old geezer who just happens to have millions of people fooled. Too, I don’t think that we’re wrong for helping to bring this out.

    Ephesians 5:8-13
    8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

  • carson

    so plant a tree recycle and use reusable shopping bags…great.
    But never a mention of GMO’ers like monsano nor the EPA nor big pharma nor chemical’s industries nor governments nor the MIC nor..

    always mentioning the average guy makes it sound like it’s the average people that are the main cause not the international money bent order..
    But there could be a reason why the big players are not mentioned by him.

    not that I subscribe to their desires that climate change is mainly man made anyway.

    he does have a fancy fish hat though, when seen from the side it looks like a fishes mouth.

    hard to grasp that some catholics seem to see this drive of the RCC and disagree (this green drive-which is simply a cover and part and parcel for the drive to a new world order etc), but never look any further to perhaps investigate the inter-faith and what that all means.
    Because that would require them to come out of that church?
    Is it possible a person could make themselves beholden in heart to a thing or organization so that they could not leave? snared to it? But if one belongs to Christ one belongs to Christ, no other, mary included.
    And no other died on a cross for one, belong to Christ not anything of this world.

    I agree that we’re in a period of global cooling (God controlled through changes in the Sun as an observed solar minimum coincided with a sharp drop in global temperatures and a worsening of a mini ice age in the early 1700’s through the late 1800’s. This was the time period in which there was a worldwide famine especially in the higher latitudes, the Thames in England regularly froze over (in the relatively mild weather in today’s British Isles, that rarely if ever happens). Men froze to death at Valley Forge during the Revolutionary War and George Washington and his men had to contend with lots of ice in crossing the Delaware River (another river that rarely has any ice in it in the winter).

    I personally believe that God will control the weather through nature & the sun to humble man and break him of his stubborn pride in thinking that we have that much influence over world climate. I believe the Bible predicts both a cooling (“Hast thou entered into the treasures of snow and hast thou seen the treasures of hail, which I have reserved against the time of trouble; against the day of battle and war?”-Job 38:22-23 KJV) and a hot period (“And the fourth angel poured his vial upon the sun and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire and men were scorched with great heat and blasphemed the Name of God, which hath power over these plagues; and they repented not to give Him glory”-Rev 16:8-9 KJV), all controlled ultimately by none other than God.

  • Ed K

    Here’s the rest of this post as I didn’t get it all when I copied and pasted it above.

    Read also Rev 16:21 about the great hail after the 7th angel empties his vial. I don’t see man blaming or crediting himself for the global warming of the sun scorching men with fire (intense heat), but blaspheming God and acknowledging His control over these things.
    Maybe God uses war (for instance nuclear war) and other doings of mankind and geological means (such as super volcanoes erupting) to help in the cooling and warming effects of these events). God has used wars and other doings of man to judge nations and individuals in the past as He has many different arrows in His quiver to use for judgment. Solar minimums can cool the planet into an ice age as can catastrophic volcanic eruptions, asteroid collisions and yes, nuclear wars. These effects are better known as volcanic, cosmic and nuclear winters.
    Maybe by the time that God causes the sun to either send a CME (might explain the heat, darkness and hail) or uses man’s nuclear war to have the same burning effect by knocking out the ozone layer (a CME, gamma ray burst from a supernova arriving without warning and other cosmic and natural events can destroy ozone and let in deadly amounts of UV light) He will have already disproven to man the “global warming lie” by causing noticeable cooling.

    Note that the Carrington Event happened during a period of low solar activity during the above mentioned mini ice age. Such a solar flare or hundreds of times more powerful can happen at solar minimum as proven in 1859, causing the effects in the vial judgments in Revelation 16. Even if man helps to worsen these effects with nuclear war or other destructive means, it’s still God Who’s in ultimate control.

    Best cure for “global warming”,is to avoid public airport travel to various destinations, and instead use private jets ,which must cut down on the Carbon imprint. From what I can see all the prognosticators of the global” problem” agenda,seem to spent their time flying everywhere in their private jets. Anyway we live in a mad world ruled over by very strange people,characters that the inhabitants from Alice in wonderland would find beyond peculiar. sad part, so few can see anything wrong with their Xtreme foolishness.

  • Of course Catholics believe that only God forgives sins but that does not mean that He did not give this ministry to His priests,
    Mt 9:2-8 Son of Man has authority to forgive sins
    Jn 20:23 – whose sins you forgive/retain are forgiven/retained
    Jn 20:22 – breathed on them, “receive Holy Spirit” [recall Gn 2:7]
    2Cor 5:17-20 – given us the ministry of reconciliation
    Jam 5:13-15 – confess your sins to one another

  • Ky

    I would tell the Pope what I tell all environmental wackos.

    I will throw a glass bottle away in your honor! “Forever in a landfill”…

    LOL, this made me chuckle Ed, although I know it’s not exactly a laughing matter, as millions are led astray by this man’s demonic thinking!

  • Bart

    Am I the only person that when I see a Catholic priest, all I see and sense is pure evil? I know I shouldn’t hate or judge, but man these people are just demonic-like. You simply know when people are trust worthy, I’d never trust them.

  • Bart

    They always look so miserable and angry. When they smile, they got that evil grin. Hillary has the same crap going.
