These developments are not surprising. All policy, armed conflict and geopolitical engineering / restructuring have the same unified outcome in mind… We know the goal. Be skeptical of the major developments as anything other than the means to these ends…

What role, if any, does (TRUE) religion, and (REAL) Christianity play?

What role does religion play in poverty and poverty alleviation?
How does religion inspire people in combatting gender inequality?
What is religion’s role in fueling conflict and which resources can religion offer for peace and reconciliation?


Quote
Religion and culture can significantly address climate change, biodiversity and ecosystem loss, pollution, deforestation, desertification and unsustainable land and water use, and other urgent issues identified in a shared vision by all nations in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Through integrating environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda, religious and cultural communities can also promote strong, inclusive, green, sustainable and transformative economies, based on circularity, sharing and collaboration, and alternative measures of growth and wellbeing. They can be instrumental in educating for more sustainable lifestyles and behaviours to achieve sustainable consumption and production, and in considering the impact of their actions on others. They can significantly contribute to ending extreme poverty, leaving no one behind when addressing multi-dimensional poverty and related challenges such as the rights of women, youth and minorities, and access for all to basic services. They can promote innovative nature-based solutions, respect for traditional knowledge and cultural diversity, exercise environmental stewardship and duty of care, build an ethic of global and local citizenship, promote good governance, tolerance, and reconciliation, and build safe, inclusive and peaceful societies. It has become more urgent than ever to promote and disseminate morals, values, behaviours and creative solutions conducive to attaining the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This universal agenda, and the emerging understanding of the points of religious agreement in environmental ethics, can be the corner stones for a common vision that enhances the role of religion and culture in achieving sustainability. Inter-faith and inter-cultural dialogue can converge on a few insights, among them that of nature as sacred, and the rights of nature, both of which are shared by most organized religions and indigenous peoples, and many natural scientists. Among the many positive actions – large and small – are the 2030 Agenda and SDGs, and the Paris Climate Change. Agreement||the actions of faith based declarations and statements, especially in relation to climate change||the actions of indigenous cultural leaders in support of greater rights and respect of cultural diversity||and the 7 million voices that engaged in vision setting in the run up to the 2030 Agenda and SDGs. These have all come together in a historic year of 2015, and provide tremendous opportunities for building a global partnership for shifting the paradigm and addressing the crucial challenges of our era, both for humanity today as well as for future generations.

AI & UN goals….

“Why artificial intelligence is vital in the race to meet the SDG

Seven years have passed since world leaders met in New York and agreed 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to resolve major challenges including poverty, hunger, inequality, climate change and health.

The pandemic undoubtedly diverted attention from some of these issues in the past couple of years. But even before COVID-19, the UN was warning that progress to meet the SDGs was not advancing at the speed or on the scale needed. Meeting them by 2030 will be tough.

Yet I remain optimistic. The pandemic demonstrated like nothing else the power of working collaboratively, across borders, for the benefit of society. It concentrated minds, funding and policy to accelerate research into virus detection, disease treatments, vaccines and manufacturing platforms.

It was a truly remarkable effort from the global community to develop effective vaccines within a year of the virus first being detected, and these and other treatments have dramatically reduced the virus’s fatality rate. This can be attributed to the brilliance, perseverance and creativity of scientists across the world. But they were not working alone: Artificial intelligence (AI) also played a key part….”

Did I miss something?
Do you actually believe that the development and implementation of the Covid vaccines was/is a good thing?

Methinks you have mistaken the QUOTE for Anthony's views? Perhaps if he had given a clear accreditation to the quote that might not misled you. Anyway, I seriously doubt that he thinks that the phony vaccines was a "good thing". shrug

I hope you are correct. In fact, looking at what he said again I think I was thrown off, because of that very thing.

Unfortunately, although most Christians I know do not like how the government handled Covid-19. Never the less, many of them believe everyone should be vaccinated. It was quite hard on our elders, because of how split our Church was on the issue.
My pastor recommended a sermon on Romans 13, by Pastor James Coates from Edmonton Alberta, who actually was jailed 5 weeks for his stance. James Coates was found innocent in his court case.

My pastor is also the nephew of Erwin Lutzer, who has written books against Woke and the Covid-19 mandates. I read two of his books and I highly recommend them.

As I indicated, the split on opinions in the Church I attend was quite large. However, this split includes many Christian family members and it has caused tension in our family. Some of them are in the medical field, and all of them are for the vaccines.

So, that tells you why I would not be surprised even on this site to see disagreement.

Tom

Tom, it's very simple, actually. On an individual basis Christian Liberty demands that INDIVIDUALS who are strong in the faith, i.e. they do not cater to worldly superstitions, OT dietary laws, woke idiocies, fables, nor to personal issues of others, take those things into account with INDIVIDUALS who are weak in the faith as not to cause them to sin against their conscience(s). Of course, those things which God forbids are not negotiable. But the CHURCH is another matter. The Church must ALWAYS preach the truth regardless of individual beliefs/practices of which God through Christ has set us free. If a government orders the closing of churches, then the CHURCH by its elders must resist since it is written,

Quote
Hebrews 10:23-26 (KJV) 23 Let us hold fast the profession of [our] faith without wavering; (for he [is] faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
Further, there is now far too much knowledge, once cancelled and debunked, that has been provided by acknowledged experts, scientists and doctors to show the very low effectiveness of the COVid vaccines on the vast majority of people. In fact, the risks of taking the vaccine by a healthy individual are serious and many times permanent. Secondly, the same can be said for masking, including the F95 which does not block COVid or like viruses. If your relatives CHOOSE to drink the "koolaid", so be it. And you must choose how to respond to them, e.g., if they demand that you wear a mask when visiting, you can either put on a mask for that short visit, or you can choose to not visit due to their demands. The same is when they visit your home. You can choose to wear a mask and cater their their unsubstantiated fear, which is fine, and not bait them into a debate about them or you can choose to not have them visit to avoid any confrontation. REMEMBER, living out the Christian life on this earth is most assuredly difficult and sometimes causes serious conflict in the home, even dividing children with parents, husbands and wives, etc. The temptation to be assimilated to the world is great and many do including churches. Stand firm and have compassion toward those who are ensnared by the wiles of the Evil One. It's a hard journey to glory. grin

I value modern medicine and regret that basic questions have brought me to doubt the numerous systems established to help, not harm, but background on the AMA gives one reason to caution….

Recently, I’ve been viewing something called “regressive autism” through a medical model and realize we are being made &
kept sick, not well…. It’s a dangerous monopoly. A system that enables profit at our expense.

Here’s the recent history

https://charlesortleb.podbean.com/e/the-disturbing-autism-and-chronic-fatigue-syndrome-connection/

P.S. I appreciate that Pilgrim allows me to post things that are inconvenient but important. I believe God wants many blinded for His own purposes, so I’m glad that we have a small corner to help others who are likeminded and less knowledgeable of these things (possibly to their own detriment). I post to warn against these evil machinations, not endorse, while seeking mercy for my former sins and ignorances and present stumbles. It’s all very humbling and sobering but Jesus remains on the thrown.
