A tweet from the Church of Sweden from December resurfaced on Monday in which it named climate change activist Greta Thunberg the “successor of Jesus Christ,” according to The Daily Wire.
“Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg”, the Church of Limhamn tweeted on December 1, 2018, according to The Daily Wire.
Kungörelse! Jesus från Nasaret har nu utsett en av sina efterträdare, nämligen Greta Thunberg.????

Last week, the Church of Sweden Malmeo went as far as ringing their church bells in step with the Global Climate Strike which Thunberg leads. The Church website released a statement announcing the news which reads:
“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.”
From a Christian perspective, this is a gross form of blasphemy and a bold statement that only goes to show what a disgusting cult these climate change activists have created. For any Christian church to claim the name of anyone as a successor of Jesus Christ puts them at odds with the teachings of Christ Himself and makes them anti-Christ as a result.
Jesus said in John 14:6 that He “is the way the truth, and the life and that no man comes to the Father except through Him. To appoint any mortal human being as a successor to Christ should be a blatant sign to any Christian that this “church” would lead people straight to Hell both spiritually and naturally in the name of its progressive political agenda.
Canadian author and Climate Change activist Naomi Klein is open about how climate change activism can be used as a weapon against Capitalism. In her book, “This Changes Everything: The Climate vs. Capitalism, Klein writes, “The really inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon, it’s about Capitalism.” “The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better,” she writes.
The Church of Sweden needs to be reminded of the Biblical command in Exodus 20:3-5 that God forbids that those who claim to have a relationship with Him “have no other gods before Him” – and further commands that His people do not create earthly idols.
This declaration, which the church later tried to write off as a joke, is in clear violation of the words written in Exodus without any room for debate.

I fail to see how anyone who claims to be a Christian would even dream of following a mortal man or woman in place of the Messiah. It doesn’t require a divine revelation to see that this so-called church is not part of the Body of Christ, but a pagan cult with a Socialist political agenda.
Jesus prayed while he was in the Garden of Gethsemane before His crucifixion that the will of The Father “be done on earth as it is in heaven.” It is abundantly clear to anyone who studies the life of Christ that there are many libertarian themes in His teachings. If the teachings of the Church of Sweden prevail, I dare to say the world will find itself in a literal Hell where human liberty is completely non-existent.
As a follower of Jesus Christ, I strive never to rush to hasty judgment. However, when a religious system seeks to push a hellish agenda, I will speak out boldly! The Lord came to bring liberty to the captives, not to chain us with political or religious schemes of men.
Like Christ, I will start flipping the tables of religious tyrants who seek to enslave people in the name of the greater good. As Thomas Jefferson said, “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
