Swedish church calls climate-activist Greta Thunberg ‘successor’ to Jesus Christ

The Left really are insane.

Greta Thunberg is a 16-year-old autistic Swedish “environmental activist” who has Asperger syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and selective mutism.

On September 23, 2019, Thunberg became an instant darling of the Left when she gave a doomsday speech at the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit in New York City, in which she berated the assembled world leaders, including President Trump, of talking only about money and “fairytales of eternal economic growth,” and having “stolen” her dreams and her childhood with their “empty words”.

She then proclaimed:

“People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction.”

Thunberg’s speech reminded some netizens of a tweet posted last December 1, 2018, by Sweden’s Linhamn Church, calling Thunberg a “successor” to Jesus Christ.

The Lutheran Church of Sweden is the national church of Sweden. Linhamn Church is a local Church of Sweden in Malmö, the third largest city in Sweden.

In the event the Limhamn Church takes down the tweet, below is a screenshot of the tweet in Swedish, followed by Google’s English translation:

Gender Taliban comes to the Church of Sweden

The tyranny and insanity of Gender PC has come to Christianity.

Throughout the Old Testament, God is referred to as “he”. In Luke 11, Jesus taught the disciples “The Lord’s Prayer” that begins with “Our Father, who art in heaven,” not “The Lady’s Prayer” that begins with “Our Mother, who art in heaven”.

Despite all that, the Church of Sweden — the largest religious institution in Sweden — is replacing all masculine pronouns for God with gender-neutral words.

The RT reports that on November 23, 2017, the annual autumn convention of the Church of Sweden’s leadership in Uppsala approved a new handbook on how to conduct services — on the language, liturgy, music and other aspects of worship.

According to the new handbook, which replaces the previous version from 1968, the clergy are to avoid terms like “Lord” and “He” in worship services because they imply that God is male. Instead, the clergy are to adopt gender-neutral wording to make the Church “more inclusive”.

Critics of the change say it undermines the concept of the Holy Trinity, which is referred to as “the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit” by Christians. They see the gender neutrality rules as politicizing matters of faith and a potential hurdle in spiritual communion between the Church of Sweden and other Christian denominations.

Christer Pahlmblad, an associate theology professor at Sweden’s Lund University, told Denmark’s Lutheran newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad the move was “not smart” and disrespects the theological heritage of Christianity — “You cannot replace 2,000 years of theology.”

The national Evangelical Lutheran Church was the state religion of Sweden until 2000 and currently has over 6 million baptized members in a country of 10 million. Women have been ordained as priests since 1960 and currently comprise 45% of the ordained clergy and an even greater share among the leadership.

Its head, Antje Jackelén, 62, is one of a handful of female archbishops in Christian churches. In 2013, Jackelén was elected 70th Archbishop of Uppsala and Primate of the Church of Sweden on a progressive platform. She is well known for interpreting Christian dogma from a spiritual rather than literal standpoint. As an example, Jackelén said that those who see the virginity of Mary, mother of Jesus, as a biological issue have completely missed the point.”
Jackelén dismisses the idea that human gender is applicable to God. According to the Swedish national news agency TT, Jackelén said that “Theologically, we know that God is beyond our gender determinations, God is not human.”
