Environmentalism carried to the extreme — Paganism
2019 also marks a year when paganism made a massive comeback.
Revelation 9:20 speaks of people in the coming tribulation who “worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.” Literal idol worship where people pray to sculpted images is making a comeback in the western world.
Part of the shift to paganism has to do with extremism in the environmental movement. Recently, a New York seminary, Union Theological Seminary in New York , brought plants into the school chapel.
Faculty members told students to “confess” their environmental sins to the plants and ask “forgiveness.”
The seminary was founded in 1836 by nine ministers. Imagine the horror those founders would have felt if you told them that one day their chapel would be used for prayer to plants.
