The Earthbeat Says ‘To Reach Critical Audiences, We Need More Faith-Based Climate News’

On February 15th, 2023, the Earthbeat, a project of the national Catholic reporter, came out with an article explaining why there is a need for faith-based journalism that has environment and climate change as their priority. 

“There is an urgent need to train faith-based journalists and editors in reporting on the environment and climate challenges across the globe.”

Without adequate faith and climate news coverage — on multiple platforms and in various languages — many of the communities hit hardest by climate impacts remain uninformed about the climate crisis, its causes and what their faith calls them to do about it.

“The dire state of faith-based news coverage of climate and other environmental issues became exceedingly evident to me after the United Nations conference on climate change, COP27, and the U.N. conference on biodiversity, COP15, held late last year.”

“With more than 3,000 reporters from 450 media houses at COP27, I was one of the few (perhaps the only one) from a Catholic broadcast media house like Radio Maria Kenya Nairobi, and only a few were from faith-based print publications, including the National Catholic Reporter’s EarthBeat, The Christian Science Monitor, Episcopal News Service and the Association for Catholic Information in Africa.”

“While the faith-based print coverage of the global climate summit was good, coverage via live interviews, recorded news, television and radio shows was inadequate.”

The writer of the article went on to say:

“For many of those audiences, especially in developing nations that are severely impacted by the climate crisis and need to be prepared to adapt, the religious angle may be the best way to grab their attention and convince them to take climate change seriously.

“Most faithful listen to the faith leaders more than politicians and science experts,” said Collins Oduor, climate change program coordinator of DORCAS AID International, noting that “84% of the global population affiliates with faith.”

The church has enough journalists, but it needs good journalists to report on climate change. Climate change training would help them ask relevant questions,” said Fr. Stephen Makagutu, assistant of the permanent observer mission of the Holy See to the U.N. Office at Nairobi.

“The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports are translated into only the six languages of the United Nations. Of the 8 billion people on the planet, more than half do not speak the U.N. languages. And many languages neither have a direct translation of the term “climate change” nor a basic understanding of what the term means.”

Notice that they are trying to get the climate change agenda, or as I like to call it, the “Climate Gospel”, far and wide to all peoples, nations, and tongues.

The reason for this is because the Mark of the Beast will be enforced upon everyone.

Revelation 13:16-17
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Let’s continue: “Translating climate change information to over 4,000 languages is not easy and it’s expensive,” said Oduor, but “the capacity gap to translate is slowly diminishing as languages are dynamic and keep changing.”

People of faith act as first responders to climate emergencies in many parts of the world. They are well-placed to articulate the challenges they face and create awareness of the need to care for our common home.”

There is a specific reason why I have the phrase “Climate Change Will Lead To Sunday Law Enforcement.” on my site. From this article, you can see some of this being played out. Climate Change and Religious faith-based tones and views are both clearly expressed in this article. But why? The Mark of the Beast is going to be a Religious Sunday Law. That is the whole goal in the end. By a sly combination of Church and State, will this law finally be enacted and enforced. The entire world is being set up in anticipation for a solution to our world’s “climate crisis.” We are being told that we as a people have the solution, that be our actions, we can stop this impending “Climate Disaster.” Little do they know, the end of all things truly is at hand, but will only end with Christ coming in the clouds to their shame and misery.

The head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, makes the same claims as this article does in his Laudato Si. He titled it “On Care For Our Common Home.” The Pope has a 7-year action timeline for when he wants this plan to be completed. In other words, he has laid out 7 years until the Mark is enforced.

“Of course, the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act... And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things.” H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons. 

Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact” Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.

Now, we know not the day or the hour of when the Mark will be enforced, or when Christ will come, but, we do know the season and how soon we really are to those events! Take heed! Get ready!

Revelation 13:9 “If any man have an ear, let him hear.”
