Been doing a bit of reading on Pentecostals and ecology to try and better understand our Prime Minister’s complete lack of action on climate change (aside from Minerals Council influence). Obviously broad but some interesting insights. Here's a few grabs and references:

#auspol
"a review of the 9 decades of ‘Australian Evangel’ (Pentecostal monthly magazine) could not locate a single article that focused attention on ecological concerns & environmental ethics, except the occasional reference to environmental destruction as proof of end-times prophecy."
"For Pentecostals in particular, even if the global environmental crisis is not an entirely dubious construction of the scientific imagination, there is no pressing need to respond to it in light of the impending peril predestined for earth and her inhabitants."
“Since the end is near, Pentecostals are indifferent to social change...This indifference extends to the movement’s concern for environmental matters, since there is little point in focusing attention on a doomed environment."
"Pentecostals read world events through literalistic interpretations of biblical apocalyptic literature, looking forward to the immanent return of Jesus which was to be accompanied by the rapture of the saints and subsequent global devastation."
"Lucas Jacometti, a Pent. Pastor in Hobart, says in a sermon:

“Only Jesus has the power to shift the climate”

For Jacometti, natural resources are there for humans, as the stewards of creation, to use as they see fit because Jesus is the one who will take care of the climate."
"Pentecostal churches are content to leave global ecological issues up to God. They believe that God loves humans and, ultimately, humans can do what they like with natural resources, because God will take care of the global climate."


Lower levels of science literacy and a negative attitude towards science as a whole by Christians also contributes to the denial of climate change. My later years of education were at a Seventh-day Adventist boarding school, and until you have seen evolution squeezed into one lesson of ATAR Human Biology while the teacher is booed, you probably can’t grasp the levels of repudiation of what they consider to be the dark arts.
There has been hypothesis that in recent times there has been a “Greening of Religion”, but this has been debunked in the article The Greening of Religion Hypothesis (Part Two): Assessing the Data from Lynn White, Jr., to Pope Francis, as research continues to show that Christians interest in the environment has waned in the last few decades compared to atheists, agnostics and those who do not practice religion. As recently as 2015 evangelical Christians in an American study rated their greatest concerns as the economy (69%) and abortion (67%) while the environment only concerned 16% of those surveyed. Closer to home in Australia this article expands from religiosity to politics indicating that “the support base of environmental concerns is generally much stronger among Labor and Green supporters, postmaterialists, those who engage in eastern spiritual practices and professionals.”
End of timers are currently collating news articles, including the Australian bushfires to prove their dogma while our Pentecostal Prime Minister remains cagey about what parts of his belief system he is willing to share and anywhere up to 40% of the current governing party may share similar views, some out of fear of the unknown. When Scott Morrison famously told the Australian public, “I’ll burn for you”, in his election victory speech I don’t think we realised how literal that could be.

The real question is how can people believe in god and the bibull?

All religions are crap.

You are actually the one who is full of it.

When the sh*t hits the fan, you will need to know who your real
friends are.

Certainly not religious volk.

Most amoral people on the planet.

No one is forcing you to give any money to any religious group.

RE: Why do people give money to these megachurch thiefs?
churches are still around because it works

they have had a long time to figure out what to say to make people give them money

you should have seen the angry pastors that came to my tax office in the 90s when the IRS started making them issue W2s to themselves and pay taxes on all that tithe money they take in and keep for themselves, they were cussing and yelling and turning red

Megachurches have rock bands, and the music 'ministry' is a large part of their overhead. People fork over lots of cash to be 'saved' and still be able to party at concerts

Tent Revival, MegaChurch, Circus are Very Interesting Events.
And I Believe Everyone should Attend at least once.
For Study in the Art Of Removing Money From Peoples Pockets and Hands!

I Do Believe in The Study Of The Spectacle!

Spectacle
1.) a visually striking performance or display.
2.) an event or scene regarded in terms of its visual impact.
