|Climate Change the Common Good - Demand for '|
They danced even better and faster after receiving the next day's document. The entire document was bad. The two separate DECLARATION paragraphs that gave me the most pause were these:
The world has within its technological grasp, financial means, and know-how the means to mitigate climate change while also ending extreme poverty, through the application of sustainable development solutions including the adoption of lowcarbon energy systems supported by information and communications technologies;
Climate-change mitigation will require a rapid world transformation to a world powered by renewable and other low-carbon energy and the sustainable management of ecosystems. These transformations should be carried out in the context of globally agreed Sustainable Development Goals, consistent with ending extreme poverty; ensuring universal access for healthcare, quality education, safe water, and sustainable energy; and cooperating to end human trafficking and all forms of modern slavery;
Hmm, reminds me so very much of the ominous predictions of this Bible passage. For the Protestants, it is below in the King James Version. For the Catholics, it is below that in the Douay version.
16] And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads.  And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six. (Douay-Rheims)
Maybe I'm just paranoid and reading too much into this. Let me know! I'm not particularly dreading "End Times" (Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!), but I sure hate to see the New Agers and their long awaited nefarious schemes now in apparent execution make them so happy.
It would be so very nice if the Pope would think before issuing his expected Encyclical to the same effects. Otherwise, I would have to start suspecting an Anti-Pope was occupying the Vatican with the real Pope (Ratzinger / Benedict XVI) suffering from a perhaps forced resignation might be a virtual house prisoner.
Here's hoping I'm wrong.
