Idolatry: Church Of Sweden Names Greta Thunberg Jesus Christ’s “Successor”


Talk about sacreligion and false idols.

The Church of Sweden proclaimed child climate activist Greta Thunberg Jesus’ “successor” in a tweet that has resurfaced following her speech (more like lecture) at the United Nations.

The tweet, which is in Swedish, translates to: 

“Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg.”

Twitter users have been quick to speculate about the rapid growing of the new "climate change cult" false religion and adults deeming Greta Thunberg as the "new Jesus":


This is creepy stuff, folks.

Possibly even signs of the end times.

What are your thoughts on this?

The Washington Examinerhas more to say about the blasphemous tweet:

The Church of Sweden declared teen star climate activist Greta Thunberg to be an appointed successor to Jesus Christ in a 2018 tweet that resurfaced in the wake of her speech before the United Nations.


"Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg," the tweet said on Dec. 1, 2018. The account, operated by the Limhamns Church, had previously tweeted several sentiments of climate activism.

Kungörelse! Jesus från Nasaret har nu utsett en av sina efterträdare, nämligen Greta Thunberg.🌟

The tweet's reemergence came at the same time as Thunberg's appearance at the United Nations earlier this month in which she sounded the alarm about climate change during a viral speech. 

"My message is that we’ll be watching you,” Thunberg warned to a room full of world leaders. “You all come to us young people for hope, how dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet I’m one of the lucky ones ... We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you?"


The Church of Sweden has a history of promulgating climate alarmism and Greta Thunberg particularly, noting on their official website, "When the Amazon burns, we gather to fight for Mother Earth together."

CBN News also commented:

Greta Thunberg can apparently do no wrong in Sweden since she's now considered an official "successor" to Jesus Christ, according to the Church of Sweden Malmo. 

The church announced its decision last December to place the 16-year-old climate change alarmist on a most-high pedestal due to her activism. 

The tweet in which the church announced Thunberg's promotion resurfaced online this week. The church has been supporting Thunberg in her efforts. Last week, the church said it would ring its church bells as a symbol of Thunberg's Global Climate Strike, according to the Daily Wire.

"In conjunction with the Global Climate Strike, church bells ring and we gather for prayer for the future of the earth," the church announced. "We pray that we believe that man is responsible for nurturing and managing Creation so that children are given the opportunity for a future. We pray that we know that climate change affects the most vulnerable — poor, children, and women. We pray that we believe in man's ability to change and change."

"When the Amazon burns, we gather to fight for Mother Earth together," the site reads, adding, "WELCOME!"

The church received severe backlash online about the tweet of Thunberg's succession to Jesus. The church's Twitter account was abandoned a few days later with an apology.

The Church of Sweden is a national Evangelical Lutheran church with more than half of the Swedish population claiming membership, although less than two percent attend services.  It is the largest Christian denomination in Sweden, according to Wikipedia. No longer supported by the government, it is known for its liberal position on several theological issues.
