Group photo of Antichrist and his fellow globalist fiends in the Council for Inclusive Capitalism with the Vatican. Yes, that’s really the name of this group. Note, to Pope Francis’ right is Lynn Forester de Rothchild, heiress of the Rothchild central banking dynasty, Mark Carney, former head of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England, and Brian Moynihan, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Bank of America, one of America’s, and one of the world’s, largest financial institutions.

And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

If you were to ask people what ESG is, odds are you’d get a blank stare.  On the other hand, if you were to ask people about the Bud Light ad campaign featuring transgender “woman” Dylan Mulvaney, there’s probably a better chance they’d know what you’re talking about. 

ESG is short for Environmental, Social, and Governance Investing.  According to Investopedia, ESG investing refers to a set of standards for a company’s behavior used by socially conscious investors to screen potential investments.”

Put differently, ESG is the investing philosophy pushing companies to pursue wokeness over profitability and is the theory of which Bud Light’s transgender ad campaign is the practice. 

The Dylan Mulvaney ad campaign, at least according to some American conservatives, has backfired on Anheuser Busch, leading to a boycott of the brand, a drop in the parent company’s stock, and falling sales.  Supporting the notion that the ad campaign has angered many customers is the report that the VP of marketing who headed the ad campaign has “taken a leave of absence.”   

Worth noting is that this is not Anheuser Busch’s first foray into woke advertising.  In 2016, the company ran an ad celebrating homosexual marriages for Gay Pride Month, a time of year formerly known as June, but in recent years is become a sodomite bacchanalia.

There are other examples of woke advertising.  A few years back. Gillette ran an ad campaign that took aim at its customer base, men.  I can’t speak for others, but I switched from using Gillette products and will never go back.

 Doubtless, other examples of woke advertising can be found.  What is remarkable about them, at least the examples cited above, is that they seem to contradict every assumption we have about the purpose of advertising.  If advertising is about getting people to like and to purchase your product, how does insulting your customer base help achieve that end?  It hardly seems like what we would expect in a capitalist system.

“You’ll own nothing.  And you’ll be happy.”

In Genesis chapter 11, we read about sinful man’s first attempt to build a global empire in disobedience to God in the form of the Tower of Babel.  Here, we read, “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”

This was in contradiction to the command of God, who reiterated to Noah the same order given to Adam, namely, to be fruitful and to fill the earth (see Genesis 9:1). Rather than obeying God, these men of Babel preferred to “make a name for themselves” by building a city and a tower.  We tend to focus on the tower but note well that the plan was to build a city as well as a tower “whose top may reach unto heaven.” The city, of course, implies a permanent dwelling.  In this case, a permanent dwelling “of the whole earth,” which is to say the entire population of the earth.  This was the world’s first idolatrous, global empire.  An empire that God quickly brought to an end, scattering the people “abroad from there over the face of all the earth.”  After this, the men of Babel “ceased building the city.”

In his sermon on Mars Hill, the Apostle Paul tells gives us additional information related to why God scattered the men of Babel.  He wrote that God “preappointed” the time and boundaries of men’s dwellings.  He did this, Paul tells us, “so that they should seek the Lord.”  Rather than taking solace and pride in their own achievements, as men of great empires are wont to do, God has decreed that men are to dwell in nations, mind their own business, and seek him. 

But sinful man did not learn his lesson at Babel.  Over the following millennia, man would make other attempts to constitute a global empire.  Some of these attempts are recorded for us in the pages of Scripture.  Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Greece, and Rome all took their shots.
