The video begins, “This is Rick Warren author of The Purpose Driven Life and pastor of Saddleback Church. I’m here at Davos with a lot of my friends and we’re talking about what are the biggest problems on the planet and how are we going to solve them. Right now, I think there are five that I call global giants: extreme poverty, pandemic diseases, illiteracy, corruption and the spiritual emptiness.”
Pandemic? How convenient.
Let’s get back to what Warren says while at the World Economic Forum. Warren highlights the globalist talking points—namely, the nation-state is incapable of solving today’s problems.
Warren continues, “These problems are so big nobody’s been able to solve them. The US hasn’t solved them, the UN hasn’t solved them, nobody’s solved them. And I think it’s because it’s going to take a three-pronged strategy to do this. There is a role for the public sector, there is a role for the private sector and there is a role for the faith sector.”
This is an interesting call for partnership between government, business, and the church. It is certainly the path used during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Of course, we all know the public-private partnership between government, Big Pharma, and Big Tech during the pandemic. What many did not know about was the government’s use of the church to promote Covid-19 propaganda, as Megan Basham of the Daily Wire reported.
The entire report is important; however, it is this deserves special attention: “During Saddleback Pastor Rick Warren’s special broadcast with Collins on behalf of Health and Human Services, he mentioned that he and Collins first met when both were speakers for the billionaires and heads of state who gather annually in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. They reconnected recently, Warren revealed, at an ‘off-the-record’ meeting between Collins and ‘key faith leaders.’ Warren did not say, but one can make an educated guess as to who convened that meeting and for what purpose, given the striking similarity of Collins’ appearances alongside all these leading Christian lights.
Apparently, Warren attended the World Economic Forum at least during 2007 and 2008. Also, attending the WEF in 2008 was Brian McLaren.
Back to the Warren video. It reveals why the World Economic Forum, governments, and Big Business might be interested in the church—distribution.
Warren says, “There is a role for the public sector, there is a role for the private sector and there is a role for the faith sector. Each of them can do something that none of the other three can do. Government has a role to set agenda, government has a role to set priorities and things like that and move nations. And there are some things that only governments can do. Businesses have a role which they have: they bring expertise, they bring investments, they bring all kinds of innovations to the market. But then, also, houses of worship have things that businesses and government will never have. In the first place, we have universal distribution. The church was global 200 years before Davos started talking about globalization.”
Warren continues explaining the appeal of using faith groups—local authority.
Rick Warren says on the WEF video, “You see there are 600 million Buddhists in the world, there are 800 million Hindus in the world, there are a billion Muslims in the world, but there are 2.3 billion Christians in the world. If you take people of faith out of the equation, you’ve ruled out five-sixths of the world. So, we have to mobilize this, these faith groups to do, work together on these issues that have been unsolvable. And the church has of course the greatest distribution. They also have the biggest manpower with 2.3 billion people. That means the church, the Christian church is bigger than China. It’s bigger than India. In fact, it’s bigger than India and China put together. So, nothing compares to its size. We have hundreds of millions of people who volunteer around the world in villages and cities on a weekly basis. And we don’t have to pay them. The third thing that they have is that they have local credibility. At the local level people trust that priest or that pastor or for that matter any mom or a rabbi; the religious leader of their faith because he’s marrying, he is burying, he is helping them through the stages of life. When the crisis comes NGO’s come and go, nations come and go, but for instance the church has a 2000-year track record.”
This prompts a few questions.
What are governments and the WEF going to do with all those volunteers?
What are churches going to use their 2,000-year track record of earned authority to distribute?
The Daily Wire report explains it nicely: propaganda.
Another question, Warren says he was “at Davos with a lot of my friends.” What friends? How many other Evangelical leaders attended WEF events over the last 10-15 years? And, what did these Evangelical Elites say?
