Get Ready for the Great Reset (Part 1)

Have you heard about the Great Reset?

Well, you may not have heard of it, but its leaders certainly have an incredibly intricate plan for you and your future.

The Reset has been designed by the World Economic Forum for a number of years, and the term has been used specifically since at least 2017.1 The WEF was also preparing for “a very severe pandemic” since at least October of 2019.2

What is the WEF, you ask? According to an article from Forbes, these are “the people who nominally run the global economy.”3

The WEF was founded in 1971 by Prof. Klaus Schwab, who also serves as its executive chairman. Schwab stated this past year:

To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a “Great Reset” of capitalism.4

He went on to say, famously:

The 3 pillars of Christian economics

"1. Creativity and work. God the Creator tasked human beings with labor even in the Garden of Eden. This work allows us to refine, purify, and fructify His handiwork. While this does not make human beings co-creators – for only God created all things ex nihilo – it gives us a canvas on which to display the creativity God implanted inside all His children." - Acton

No, the Pandemic Has Not Surged Billionaire Wealth

"This claim has made headlines in CNBC, Fox Business, Business Insider, CNN, Reuters, Newsweek, and the New York Post. It has also been shared tens of thousands of times on social media....Yet the claim that billionaire wealth has surged 'since the beginning of the pandemic' is flatly untrue." - N. Review

COVID-19 reminds us work is not just about money

"I’m not nominating anyone for sainthood here. People have all sorts of reasons for taking a job and their reasons could be thoroughly cynical and selfish. ...But even in a heavily regulated mixed economy like our own, we’re seeing millions of people behaving in ways that can’t be explained by selfishness (not the same thing as self-interest) or greed – the common critiques." - Acton

Can We Measure the Value of Saving Human Lives in Dollars? Somber Calculations in a Time of Plague

"These paradoxes have a root cause. They all depend on a certain kind of economic model of practical rationality. They assume that the value of a human action can be identified with the expected value of the consequences of that action. To determine the value of an action, we compare two sorts of 'possible worlds': those likely to result if the action is taken, and those likely to result if the action is not taken." - The Public Discourse

“Some Christians have become enamored with the ideas of socialism and even communism.”

"First, when the terms are left undefined, they seem to describe "kind" and "benevolent" economic systems that will help the poor and raise people out of poverty. They seem equivalent to the good "social programs" in our republic. Second, there is a seeming connection with the early church as described in Acts 2:44-45 which legitimizes these systems in the minds of some Christians." - Matt Postiff

Why Christians Should Care About Economic Ideas

"It is no coincidence that the twentieth century was the bloodiest century in human history. The ideas of totalitarianism and communism started in the universities and made their way into policy. These policies had devastating and unthinkable human consequences. Deaths resulting from direct government action against citizens in the twentieth century reached 262,000,000." - IFWE
