The Vatican and the Oil Dealers

“The Vatican will host executives of the world’s top oil companies for a conference next week on climate change and the transition away from fossil fuels, a Vatican source said on Friday. Pope Francis, who wrote a major document on protection of the environment from global warming in 2015, is expected to address the group on the last day of the June 8-9 conference.

“The conference, organized by the University of Notre Dame in the United States, is expected to be attended by the heads or senior executives of companies including Exxon Mobil, Eni, BP, Royal Dutch Shell and Pemex, the source said. The chief executive officers of Exxon, BP and Norway’s Equinor will attend the event, the companies confirmed. Shell declined to comment.

“The oil and gas industry has come under increasing pressure from investors and activists to play a bigger role in reducing the emission of greenhouse gases in order to meet goals set out in a 2015 climate agreement signed in Paris.

“Companies are betting on increased demand for gas, the least polluting fossil fuel, and to a lesser extent on renewable power such as wind and solar, to meet global targets of net zero emissions by the end of the century.”

“We’re hopeful that this kind of dialogue can help develop solutions to the dual challenge of managing the risks of climate change while meeting growing demand for energy, which is critical to alleviating poverty and raising living standards in the developing world,” Exxon spokesman Scott Silvestri said.

“The conference, titled ‘Energy Transition and Care for Our Common Home,’ will be held in the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, a 16th century villa in the Vatican gardens known as the Casina Pio IV.

“In the 2015 encyclical, called “Laudato Si (Praise Be), On the Care of Our Common Home,” Francis, the first pope from a developing nation, advocated a change of lifestyle in rich countries steeped in a ‘throwaway’ consumer culture and an end to an ‘obstructionist attitudes’ that sometimes put profit before the common good.

“In several passages in the six-chapter encyclical, Francis confronted head-on both climate change doubters and those who say it is not man-made.
He said there was a ‘very solid scientific consensus’ that the planet was warming and that people had to ‘combat this warming or at least the human causes which produce or aggravate it’ because greenhouse gases were ‘released mainly as a result of human activity.’

“Francis called for policies to drastically reduce polluting gases, saying technology based on fossil fuels ‘needs to be progressively replaced without delay’ and sources of renewable energy developed.

“One of the key architects of the pope’s encyclical, Cardinal Peter Turkson, head of the Vatican’s department on promoting human development and a firm backer of the need to stem global warming, will address the group, the source said.

“Last year, Francis, who strongly supported the Paris agreement on climate change, implicitly criticized the United States for pulling out of the accord.
The chancellor of the academy where the conference will be held, Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, called the U.S. withdrawal a ‘huge slap in the face’ for the Vatican.”

“All the world,” even the oil companies, “wondered after the beast.” Revelation 13:3.

Forgiveness is powerful

Forgiveness is powerful
If you are struggling with unforgivingness, remind yourself of how God has forgiven you, and respond in kind. Well, David should know: “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger forever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:8-12).

“At least 90 people have died in Thursday’s 8.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico, officials have confirmed. A government spokesman said 71 people had been killed in the south-west state of Oaxaca alone. Hundreds of families have reportedly been camping in the streets, afraid of the dangers of aftershocks. The Mexican Seismological Service said 721 had been recorded since the initial tremor.”

“GET READY, is the word sounded in my ears. GET READY, GET READY. He that is to come, will come and will not tarry. Tell my people that unless they improve the sacred opportunities given them, unless they do the work I have given them, Satan will come upon them with the stealthy tread of a thief, to deceive and allure them.” God wants us to be wide awake, that when He shall come, we shall be ready to say, “Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us.” He is coming to us by His Holy Spirit today. Let us recognize Him now; then we shall recognize Him when He comes in the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. God calls upon you to get ready to meet Him in peace.” (E.White, Review and Herald, April 30, 1901)

Andrew Garfield, the actor who played Desmond Doss in the movie Hacksaw Ridge, had an experience with ‘Christ’ while preparing for another movie about a 17th century Jesuit priest

Garfield studied for a year with Jesuit priest James Martin in preparation for the aforementioned movie about Jesuits.  During that year, he studied (and learned) the Ignatian Spiritual exercises–the ‘holy grail’ of spiritual formation.  Garfield said that Martin helped him better grasp who God is.

“He gave me spiritual direction as if I were a Jesuit in training,” he said. “It became a very personal journey for me.”

“It is a transformational meditative process where you do these imaginative prayers” said Garfield.  “In fact”, he continued, “Stanislavski, who invented the basis for modern acting, was deeply inspired by Saint Ignatius’ spiritual exercises.  So I felt right at home as an actor.  It was this very weird thing where you create this deep relationship with Jesus Christ”  he stated in an interview.

“I hadn’t studied the Bible, being an agnostic pantheist, and I discovered that the Jesuits are incredibly pantheistic in a way.  They find God in all things.  God is in the tree that was used to make this table, and I think that is a wonderful way to see the world.”

The highlight of Garfield’s Ignatian experience was a week of silence.

“The week was full of meditation in and attempt to get close to those deep inner voices and the spiritual exploration we were doing.  After the seven days, I was traveling to the airport with another actor and the devil showed up in a disgusting, dark conversation between us for three hours.  It was like the devil came in and made us say these nasty words, I can’t even remember the words, they are like, blocked out of my memory.”

Wow.  This experience has become Garfield’s experiential replacement for the Bible.  It has brought moments where the Enemy took control of his thoughts and speech, and yet convinced him that he has found the true Jesus.

These spiritual formation exercises are flowing rapidly through their latest vehicle, the Emergent Church movement, and have positively affected not a few Adventists, who claim that they (Ignatian Spiritual exercises) might be a good way to get closer to God, or Jesus Christ.  But which Jesus?  There are lots of false Jesus’ and only one real One.  There are many spirits and one Holy Spirit, in our heightened spiritual culture.  We must be wise, and test the spirits by the Word of God.  There is much deception around us.

Andrew Garfield final words:  “My philosophy is that a life of faith is not a life of certainty; a life of faith is a life of doubt.”  Huh? In Colossians 2:8 it reads  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Desmond Doss’ life exemplified biblical conviction, and to be portrayed by an actor who says these things should remind us anew that Hollywood is no friend of truth.  Now you know the rest of the story, and knowing it, you might say a prayer for this poor deceived man, Andrew Garfield.  There might be more hope for him than for Christians who go down this dark path.  In fact, our culture is not moving from Christian to secular; it is moving from secular to pagan.

“Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.  He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.  But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him.  By this we know that we are in Him” (1 John 2:3-6).
