Church of Sweden Names Greta Thunberg As The "Successor" of Jesus Christ
Liberals everywhere have been praising 16-year-old Greta Thunberg for her activism in climate change.
She recently gained notoriety after her speech at the U.N. climate change summit where she gave a script that was likely written by some of George Soros' cronies.
But now she's really been put on a pedestal. A BIG one!
The Church of Sweden has named Thunberg as a "successor" to Jesus Christ.
The church has tweeted,
“Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg”
According to The Daily Wire,
The announcement resurfaced online on Monday, likely due to the church’s most recent support of Thunberg’s activism.
Last week, for example, The Church of Sweden Malmö announced that they would ring their church bells in conjugation with the Global Climate Strike, of which Thunberg is the face.
“In conjunction with the Global Climate Strike, church bells ring and we gather for prayer for the future of the earth,” the church announced. “We pray that we believe that man is responsible for nurturing and managing Creation so that children are given the opportunity for a future. We pray that we know that climate change affects the most vulnerable — poor, children and women. We pray that we believe in man’s ability to change and change.”
The church literally elevated Thunberg to what can only be called an Apostle or perhaps some other messianic figure.
When they started catching grief over their tweet, they explained that the term was used in a nuanced way. “Here you can read more about the word ‘success’ and its different meanings / nuances.”
It wasn't much longer after that when the account was abandoned which ended by giving a defense of the message they used and an apology for any hurt they’ve caused.
“Dear twitter, If we have hurt someone we apologize,” the post, which was published on December 6, 2018, starts.
“Our sense has been to talk about Jesus Christ in our own way. Now we leave the arena. Thank you for your commitment, joy and debate. God bless you! Jonas Persson, ward pastor.”
