Greta Thunberg Proclaimed ‘Successor’ Of Jesus Christ By Church Of Sweden
Greta Thunberg is the second coming — literally.
The Church of Sweden announced last December, long before the teenage climate alarmist hit the headlines, that Thunberg is a “successor” to Jesus Christ.
“Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg,” the Church of Limhamn wrote in Twitter Dec. 1, 2018.
Kungörelse! Jesus från Nasaret har nu utsett en av sina efterträdare, nämligen Greta Thunberg.🌟

The move re-emerged on social media this week.

Thunberg appeared last week at the United Nations, where she lectured world leaders about climate change.
“My message is that we’ll be watching you,” Thunberg said. “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?”
But the church later said it was being misinterpreted.
“After some backlash in December when the tweet was published, the church posted a second tweet that suggested ‘success’ could be interpreted in more than one way. Shortly after, the entire account was abandoned, with a sign-off message that defended the original celebration of Thunberg and suggested everyone has a right to interpret Jesus in their own way,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“Dear twitter, If we have hurt someone we apologize, it has never been our meaning. Our meaning has been to talk about Jesus Christ in our own way. Now we leave the arena. Thank you for your commitment, joy and debate. God bless you! Jonas Persson, ward pastor.”
Har vi sårat någon ber vi om ursäkt, det har aldrig varit vår mening. Vår mening har varit att på vårt sätt tala om Jesus Kristus. Nu lämnar vi arenan. Tack för engagemang, glädje och debatt.
Gud välsigne er!
Jonas Persson, församlingsherde
