Students at Union Theological Seminary prayed to a display of plants set up in the chapel of the school, prompting the institution to issue a statement explaining the practice as many on social media mocked them.

After nearly 10 years of creating content for Now The End Begins, sometimes I feel kind of jaded, like I have seen it all. And then this happens. In an absolute stunning illustration of the last days Church of Laodicea that Jesus says He will “spue from His mouth”, students at Union Theological Seminary bow down before plants, worship them, and then confess their ‘climate sins’ to them. If I was an end times novelist, and I brought this story to my editor as a plot idea, he would throw me out of his office for suggesting something so stupid. And yet, this is real, and welcome to the end times.

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:14-16 (KJV)

But you needn’t be too shocked or surprised by all this, a quick trip to the Union Theological Seminary website tells you that “Union is one of the first major seminaries in the U.S. to open its doors to new programs devoted to non-Christian communities.” What do they mean by that? They mean that they proudly teach Islam and Buddhism as part of their “interreligious engagement.” That is to say that Christianity and the Bible is not the only way to God or to Heaven. So be careful before you send your child off to a “christian college” because they just may come back as a Muslim, a Buddhist, or more likely as an atheist. 

The one bright spot in all this end times theological slop is that if we are in the end times Church of Laodicean age, that’s a good thing because the next event on the timeline is the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church!

‘Absolute theological bankruptcy’: Union Theological Seminary students confess climate sins to plants

“Today in chapel, we confessed to plants,” the nation’s oldest independent seminary declared Tuesday on Twitter. “Together, we held our grief, joy, regret, hope, guilt and sorrow in prayer; offering them to the beings who sustain us but whose gift we too often fail to honor. What do you confess to the plants in your life?”

The ceremony, which is part of professor Claudio Carvalhaes’ class “Extractivism: A Ritual/Liturgical Response,” drew ridicule from many on Twitter, some of whom accused the seminary and students of having lost their minds.

In response, the seminary’s Twitter account began retweeting users who defended the ritual and also issued a statement spanning a lengthy 10-tweet thread.

“We’ve had many questions about yesterday’s chapel,” the statement read in part. “In worship, our community confessed the harm we’ve done to plants, speaking directly in repentance. This is a beautiful ritual.”

“We are in the throes of a climate emergency, a crisis created by humanity’s arrogance, our disregard for Creation,” the statement continued. “Far too often, we see the natural world only as resources to be extracted for our use, not divinely created in their own right—worthy of honor, thanks and care. We need to unlearn habits of sin and death. And part of that work must be building new bridges to the natural world. And that means creating new spiritual and intellectual frameworks by which we understand and relate to the plants and animals with whom we share the planet.”

Encouraging churches to turn from “theologies that encourage humans to dominate and master the Earth,” Union asserted that “we must birth new theology, new liturgy to heal and sow, replacing ones that reap and destroy.”

“No one would have blinked if our chapel featured students apologizing to each other,” the statement went on. “What’s different (and the source of so much derision) is that we’re treating plants as fully created beings, divine Creation in its own right—not just something to be consumed. Because plants aren’t capable of verbal response, does that mean we shouldn’t engage with them? So, if you’re poking fun, we’d ask only that you also spend a couple moments asking: Do I treat plants and animals as divinely created beings?”

Confessing to the plants was “just one expression of worship here at Union,” a spokesperson for the seminary told the Washington Examiner. “Union Theological Seminary is grounded in the Christian tradition, and at the same time deeply committed to inter-religious engagement. Union’s daily chapel is, by design, a place where people from all the wondrous faith traditions at Union can express their beliefs. And, given the incredible diversity of our community, that means worship looks different every day!”

“One day, you may come in to find a traditional Anglican communion, another day you may enter into a service of Buddhist meditation or Muslim prayer,” the spokesperson continued. “Another, you may find a Pentecostal praise service or a silent Quaker meeting. We create a home where people can worship side by side, in traditions similar to and very different to their own. Through this process, we learn from our neighbors and discern our own faith more deeply.”

Affiliated with neighboring Columbia University in Upper Manhattan, Union became the nation’s first independent seminary in 1893 when it sundered from the Presbyterian Church after the denomination tried to oust one of its professors for claiming the Bible is not inspired by God, among other things.

Exactly 7 Days After Israel And The United States Agreed To The Two State Solution, Hurricane Ian Smashes Florida Causing Catastrophic Destruction

Exactly one week after both Israel and the United States agreeing to the Two State Solution at the United Nations, Hurricane Ian hits Florida

As I write this, Hurricane Ian is howling directly overhead, the power in our condo flickers on and off, and I am grateful for the battery backup that keeps my computer running uninterrupted. It was exactly one week ago yesterday that the prime minister of Israel said the Jews are ready to divide their land to create a Palestinian state. It is exactly one week ago today that both Israel and the United States stood before the United Nations General Assembly and declared their support for the Two State Solution. Hurricane Ian has decimated whole sections of the west coast of Florida, is that coincidence, or is the Lord speaking?

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignationeven all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJB)

Hurricane Ian is the first hurricane to hit Florida since 2018, all the other ones either blew away or amounted to nothing. So to have a storm of this magnitude, doing the damage it is doing, exactly one week after both the US and Israel agree to the Two State Solution, to me, is no coincidence. Please pray for all the people who have been, who currently are, and who will be in the path of this deadly storm, that the Lord will be gracious and show mercy. Pray also for Israel and the Jews who, despite the witness of all the prophets, are unwittingly preparing themselves to enter into the time of Jacob’s trouble that will begin after the Rapture of the Church takes place.

Hurricane Ian updates: Florida sheriff says ‘fatalities are in the hundreds’ after monster storm

FROM THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER: After Hurricane Ian swept through Florida on Thursday, the storm left millions without power, and officials are predicting there may be hundreds of fatalities.

“Fatalities are in the hundreds,” Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno told Good Morning America on Thursday.

Ian was moving northeast across Florida at about 8 mph with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph at 5 a.m. Thursday, according to the National Hurricane Center. However, the agency warned that Ian could pick back up and reach hurricane strength as it reaches Florida’s east coast on Saturday, posing risks to Georgia and the Carolinas.

This Is What Hurricane Ian Is Doing In My Hometown Of Saint Augustine

Flooding begins in St. Augustine on the bayside as Hurricane Ian approaches.

The NHC downgraded Hurricane Ian to tropical storm status early Thursday morning after the storm began to weaken gradually overnight Wednesday as it moved across central Florida. It’s not yet clear how many fatalities or injuries have been sustained due to Ian, and there have not been any reports or numbers from state officials.

President Joe Biden declared a major disaster for Florida early Thursday morning, approving the distribution of federal aid to supplement recovery efforts in the aftermath of Ian. This federal assistance includes grants for temporary housing and home repairs, loans to insure property losses, and other programs to assist business owners in recovering from the storm’s damage.

Ian made landfall in Florida as a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph just after 3 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, making it the strongest hurricane to rock the state since Hurricane Michael in 2018. State officials issued evacuation orders earlier this week before the storm reached the state, warning of possibly life-threatening conditions from high winds and heavy rainfall. READ MORE

With Chinese And Russian Warships Off Alaska, And Hurricane Ian Barreling Toward Florida, There Is No Better Time To Hand Out Gospel Tracts

With enemy warships off Alaska and Hurricane Ian threatening Florida, remember that you have been charged with getting the gospel of the kingdom of God to a lost and dying world!

A U.S. Coast Guard ship on routine patrol in the Bering Sea came across a guided missile cruiser from China, officials said Monday. The patrol boat, known as a cutter called Kimball, later discovered there were two other Chinese naval ships and four Russian naval vessels, including a destroyer, all in single formation. Over in Florida, the National Weather Service tells us that a  Category 2 Hurricane force wind of 85-105 mph with gusts to 130 mph will hit sometime early Wednesday. Oh yeah, man, time to tell the people about Jesus Christ, and I did exactly that while filling up my Jeep at Costco this morning.

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7,8 (KJB)

If you are a Christian saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, you have already been charged with the preaching and teaching of the gospel of the kingdom of God in these last days. At the height of the pandemic, close to 2,500,000 people per month were coming to NTEB as we warned of the coming judgment. Here on Day 925 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, that judgment is closer than ever before, and when it hits, it’s lights out. So when is the time to get something done for the Lord Jesus? Now, right now.

Mandatory evacuations ordered for over 300,000 in Tampa Bay as Hurricane Ian churns closer to Florida

FROM FOX WEATHER: Mandatory and voluntary evacuations totaling over 300,000 people have been ordered along Florida’s west coast as Hurricane Ian rapidly intensifies into a major hurricane Tuesday morning. Florida’s Gulf Coast from Englewood to the Anclote River, including Tampa Bay, is under a Hurricane Watch ahead of the expected wind, rain and storm surge from Hurricane Ian. Given Florida’s unique coastline, the topography lends itself to the state being highly susceptible to storm-surge flooding during hurricanes.

Several counties along Florida’s west coast have already issued mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders. According to the FOX Forecast Center, storm surge could reach as high as 10 feet along portions of Florida’s west coast, though the entire western Florida coast is susceptible to some level of storm surge. Storm surge is the rise of water levels caused directly by a storm and does not take into account rainfall or wave size, which can add additional feet on top of a storm’s surge.

“In order to protect residents, we are issuing a mandatory evacuation order for Zone A, recommending a voluntary evacuation for Zone B and opening emergency shelters,” Hillsborough County Administrator Bonnie Wise said. READ MORE

Hundreds of thousands of residents have been ordered to evacuate the Tampa area in Florida ahead of a possible direct hit from Hurricane Ian. With highways jammed and the city’s main airport suspending operations later on Tuesday, families are searching for ways to stay safe.

Days Of Lot

High School Football Players Are Being Raped And Sodomized By Their Fellow Teammates As Liberal Public Schools Devolve Into Dystopian Horror Movie

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Can you imagine high school football players being raped and sodomized by their teammates, what type of world has this become?

Someone had told me a few weeks ago the story of how a high school football player was raped in the back of the bus on the ride home from the ‘big game’, and the two coaches on the bus as well as the bus driver did nothing to stop it. How could that be, I wondered, that just didn’t seem possible. So today I googled it and what came back was not the one story I was looking for, but many articles on how high school football players all across America are being sexually assaulted by their male teammates.

“But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.” Genesis 19:4,5 (KJB)

As we talked about on our Podcast yesterday, the world we now live in is preparing itself for the soon arrival of Antichrist, and because of that, his 7-year short-lived kingdom is now being prepared to receive him. When I was in high school in the late 1970’s, we had rowdy kids on our championship, undefeated football team, and quite often not a few of those players would get in trouble. But no one was being sexually assaulted by these boys, and certainly not homosexually assaulted which is beyond imagination, and quite demonic. All this brings me to my point.

If you are over the age of 50, the world you were born into has ceased to exist, in its place has risen up the spirit of Antichrist which is infecting every part of our society. Teenagers are being chemically castrated with the blessing of governments, doctors no longer take an oath to “do no harm” as Nazi-era medical experiments have been sanctioned by America’s elite hospitals. Boys are wearing dresses with laws being passed allowing them access to the most private portions of the girl’s locker and bath rooms. This is the world we live in, and if you raise your voice against it, it is considered ‘hate speech’ and ‘violence’ against diversity. As I watch all this, my heart breaks for lost people, and I am doing everything I can to get the gospel out to see people get saved. But after the Rapture, I will be in full agreement with the LORD regarding the judgments He will send upon this earth.

3 Ridgeline football players face felony charges over sexual abuse case on school bus

FROM KUTV2: Three Ridgeline High School football players are facing felony charges over an incident of hazing involving sexual abuse on a school bus. The sheriff’s office is now investigating and said this happened on a bus when the players were returning from a sports event on Aug. 19. The incident was initially reported as a hazing case, but after officials began investigating they determined this was not hazing and rather a serious crime.

“This was not horseplay, it was intentional. Which is why we are a looking at felony charges, of forcible sexual abuse, as well as attempted forcible sexual abuse,” Lt. Doyle Peck with Cache County said.

2News tried to speak to people regarding the incident but no one wanted to comment on the graphic nature of the allegations. Officials said they first found out about the alleged incident when a school resource officer forwarded on a report that this had allegedly occurred.

According to Peck, all the people involved are high school-aged males on the football team. He said the three players worked together to assault each victim but did not go into detail because the case was still under investigation. Peck said aside from the bus driver, there were two adult coaches on the bus but it was loud and rowdy, they were not aware of the incident that occurred. READ MORE

Ten PA High School Football Players Charged with Hazing, Sexual Assault

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Middletown Area High School’s football season was canceled in August after a cell phone video went viral showing serious hazing incidents in the school, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Superintendent Chelton Hunter told parents that a school investigation found that the hazing was “much more widespread and involved many more students” than was previously known, the paper noted. The administrators then canceled the school’s football season.

Now, the police are adding to the issue.

The Lower Swatara Township Police and the Criminal Investigation Division of the District Attorney’s Office in Dauphin County opened an investigation into the hazing videos. On Wednesday, Dauphin County District Attorney Francis T. Chardo announced that ten students were charged.

“Two students, both seventeen years of age, have been charged with multiple counts of criminal attempt to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault, unlawful restraint, simple assault, and hazing,” Chardo said in a statement, according to TMZ Sports.

Investigators added that six students, ranging in ages from 14 to 17, were victims of the hazing. But up to six others may also have been victims but are reluctant to join the case. READ MORE
