Earth Day—High Holy Day of Paganism
canadafreepress.com ^ | 4/22/2014 | J.D. Longstreet

Posted on 04/22/2014 6:44:27 AM PDT by rktman

Today, masses of human beings around the globe will celebrate the worship of the earth ... not God ... not the creator—but the creation.

Rocks will be worshiped, rivers will be worshiped, trees will be worshiped, the sun will be worshiped, fish, snails, spiders, and all sorts of creeping things will be worshiped today.

Grown-up, adult, men and women will bow down to “THINGS,” to idols, in fealty to a god of their own creation. They will offer their lives in service to, well, NOTHING. And these are grown-up people, adults, human beings you would think would have the intelligence to know better. But you would be mistaken.

If they REALLY cared they would commit to the ultimate act of honor and remove themselves from the list of polluters and go to wherever gaia worshippers go when they "pass". IF the really cared. Not asking much.

Call it what you like. It’s still a thinly disguised attempt at celebrating Vladimir Lenin’s birthday.

America is entering an era of neo pagan decadence. The high priest is Obama.

Not a fan of Earth day (every day is Earth day IMHO), but Easter tops the list for Pagan celebrations buy far with all its spring renewal and fertility symbols.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20 NIV

They won’t because the author of this piece has it half right. They don’t want to worship the creator....or anything else. I don’t know if it’s more the holy day of paganism as much that of atheism. The true nature worshipers are mostly gone. These people don’t believe in much of anything except what they want, and will use any excuse like the environment or no excuse if they can get away with it, to take what they want.

We are living in the days of Noah. Everyone doing what is right in their own eyes. Even satanists like Anton LaVey have told us all along. They don’t believe in a literal devil or god or anything else...do what thou wilt is the whole of their law. In modern times, what they “wilt” do is redistribute income

Let us never forget that Earth day was started by a guy who killed his girlfriend and carried her body around in a trunk for years.

There is a part of the human psyche that quite literally requires a “God.” If you decide to reject traditional religion, you don’t just go about your day - your mind will “fill that slot” with a “God” - any God.

This is why we see so many mis-guided and fanatical environmentalists who treat their hobby as if it were a religious experience.

In the south we are really connected to the land, but we reject the radical environmental movement (as it is). It’s because our slot is properly filled already.

Pagan Gaia worship. Violates the 1st of the 10 Commandments right off the bat. Not that it matters to any of the Satanic Socialists....

I am re-reading a riveting book by Bill Wiese called 23 Minutes in Hell. This man had what can be characterized as a vision, and it is not for the faint of heart. Very sobering and a good re-energizer for anyone engaged in personal evangelism.

Got to go now. Got to light an earth day candle, I think a truck tire ought to do.

I read the whole article and...forgive me...but it just sounded like a rant to me.

Understand me, please...God DID tell us to be stewards of the earth (small ‘e’) and to take care of it (Genesis 1:28). He most certainly didn’t tell us to worship it.

I don’t participate in “Earth Day” activities since there are plenty of other things...useful things...out there to do. But...I do believe we as followers of Christ should do what we can to take care of this wonderful world God has given us. Not by going overboard and freaking out and trying to ban or destroy the works of modern civilization, but by taking intelligent and well thought-out actions to “pick up after ourselves”.

Every earth day I grab a shovel and dig a hole, just to show the earth who’s boss.

I’m sorry, Pagan Day has been cancelled due to severe wind, rain, hail, tornadoes, and lightning followed by floods, earthquakes, and volcanoes. Tomorrow is not looking too good either as falling stars from heaven, firery rain and hail, darkness, polluted oceans, forest fires, and disappearing mountains are forecast. Sorry to interrupt your party - GOD

Started by convicted murderer Ira Einhorn who killed his girlfriend and stuffed her in a trunk. Hope he dies in prison
