Putin Opens Door For Biblical Truth & What That Means For Climate Deniers?

Genesis 2:15:

"The Lord, God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and take care of it."


Iconoclasm- Greek for "image-breaking", is the deliberate destruction within a culture of the culture's own religious icons and other symbols or monuments, usually for religious or political motives.

So as we know when the European Renaissance happened after the Moors who educated and saved Europe from the plague were defeated all the global images reminding Europeans of the Moors (Blackamoors) were seized and whitewashed by Michelangelo (at the behest of the Pope) and Leonardo da Vinci (at the behest of wealthy nobles and merchants) and the old images were hidden in vaults all over Europe and Russia and they all agreed to keep the old images as a secret between them. This movement was called Iconoclasm since all major religions originated in Africa it took hundreds of years to whitewash history and it still is going on (think Egyptology, a science specifically created to whitewash a history and its people. Why else is there no Roman-ology?).


Recently that unspoken secret was exposed to the world by Russian Federation leader Putin as a form of warfare seeing as NATO seemed to be on the verge of nuking his country, and so he has revealed that the Christ and Mary were originally portrayed and described in ancient texts as black people and he has all the images, about 1700 pictures. He also stated from now on Russia Christians would only be worshipping black Jesus. Not that Putin is a religious man but he knows the West's greatest weakness is the inability to give up racism and white narratives of supposed racial supremacy based on phenotype. In certain populations most of whom are undergoing a demographic decline currently, adherence to this belief borders on psychosis. By attacking this world view he causes great anxiety especially among Christians who equate the religion more with the state of being "White" than its basic tenets!


The question remains will this access of religious truth affecting a racial perspective deeply in error also help us understand what the Bible teaches regarding dealing with the existential threat that climate presents as well. will our choices only be whether we end with a whimper or a bang or can the world finally see that the arguments of our leaders are silly and wasteful and their is a bigger plan beyond centuries of war for profit?


From a biblical perspective we are made in God’s image, and God has appointed us to be the stewards of the earth. This means that when we care for the earth, and for one another it is a way we can express our love for each other and to God. The following are quotes from Kyle Meyaard Schaap and Corina Newsome from Young Evangelicals for Climate Action (YECA)


“We look at some of the passages in Leviticus and Deuteronomy when God is teaching His people how to be good people, and some of the commands he gives them have to do with honoring the land and recognizing the land’s need to have a Sabbath in order to honor God. [The land] as well as humans need to have a Sabbath, to let the land rest."(Kyle Meyard Schaap)


Since much of early culture was agrarian it is reasonable to assume some folks may have been tempted to over farm out of greed thus inadvertently causing poor crops later on.


"We look at the prophets who command the people to seek justice for both people and the land because they recognize that their mutual well-being is inextricably bound up together. We look at Psalms like Psalm 19, Psalm 104, Psalm 24, and others that speak so beautifully about God’s love for the created world for its own sake. God takes great delight in the creatures that He has made.”(Corina Newsome)


Psalm 104: 10-15:

He makes springs pour water into the ravines — it flows between the mountains. They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst; the birds of the sky nest by the waters — they sing among the branches. He waters the mountains from His upper chambers. The land is satisfied by the fruit of His work. He makes grass grow for the cattle and plants for people to cultivate, bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their hearts.


Psalm 24: 1-2:

The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world and all who live in it, for He founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.


“Stewardship is a biblical principle…and doesn’t mean that we’re supposed to dominate the Earth. Dominion is something that we are supposed to reflect on, how God would treat His creation. He’s given us these resources, and to use them in such an over abusive way…there’s going to be consequences. This idea of creation care tends to be interwoven with environmentalism. Corina Newsome, who is an Associate Conservation Scientist, as well as active in the evangelical movement, has been addressing the overlapping circles of religion, environmentalism, and minority communities for some time. You can see examples of her work on her website Hood Naturalist.

“We are stewards of the Earth,” she says. “So not only is it a gift, and not only did God furnish this for us and provide this for us, if we destroy it, it’s only going to hurt us.
