Interfaithism: The Religion of the New World Order Jan 28, 2007 11:08:21 GMT -5

Revelation 13 describes a time when the people of the world will
find a common form of worship. How might this new religion come to
pass? Enter Interfaithism, the belief that all religions are valid
pathways to God. This anti-biblical world ethic has now become
While the Interfaith movement appears on the surface to be harmless
enough, in reality this is the beginning of the end. Ultimately, we
will be forced to make a decision between Jesus and Satan. We will
choose between our exclusive claim on Jesus Christ as Lord and
Savior vs. a watered-down anti-biblical document. We will be asked
to accept that spiritual truths can be found in all of the world's
religions and that there is more than one path to heaven. A Bible-
believing Christian cannot agree to this.
This article appeared in the July/August 1999 edition of Endtime
Conflicts among nations continue to ignite dangerous wars on our
earth. Global planners have concluded that war will never be
eliminated unless some form of world government replaces the era of
the nation-state. However, it has now become obvious that the
desired world political unity will never be achieved without
bringing an end to religious conflict. This is why New Age global
planners have quietly given birth to the United Religions
Organization. They believe that the future of our world depends on
all of us becoming tolerant and respectful of each other's beliefs.
The new world religion, now in the world's birth canal, will not be
Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Wicca, or Muslim. It will be
Interfaithism -- the belief that all religions, while different on
the surface, are each valid pathways to God.
How will the needed harmony among the world's religions be achieved?
How will it be possible to convince multitudes of world religious
leaders to compromise on their doctrines of religious exclusivity
for the greater good that the globalists say will come to humanity?
An atmosphere of tolerance and mutual respect must be created.
Unbeknownst to the majority of people on earth, the creation of such
an atmosphere has been well underway for many decades. It is only
now, since the quest is virtually achieved, that the planners are
going public. This is why organizations like the United Religions
can gain so much influence so quickly. This also explains why Pope
John Paul II was willing to declare in 1994 that Muslims also have
salvation. (See Catechism of the Catholic Church, pg. 242-243) While
this declaration is as untrue today as it was a few decades ago,
times are different. Today, the declaration is applauded.
Shaping a Global Spirituality
Since the 1950ís, the United Nations, led by its
visionary ""Prophet,î Robert Muller, has been on a specific and
premeditated course to unite the world's religions. In his book, New
Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Muller does not hide the
agenda. He explains how his Catholic upbringing led him to
ultimately embrace Buddhism, the atheistic religion of UN Secretary
General U Thant who was his immediate superior at the UN for many
years. Muller calls for a UN-led global government and global
religion as mankind's only hope.
Another man who has had extreme influence upon the ìreligion of the
UN"" is Hindu guru Sri Chimnoy. He writes, ìNo human force will ever
be able to destroy the United Nations, for the United Nations is not
a mere building or a mere idea; it is not a man-made creation. The
United Nations is the vision-light of the Absolute Supreme, which is
slowly, steadily, and unerringly illuminating the ignorance, the
night of our human life. The divine success and supreme progress of
the United Nations is bound to become a reality. At his choice hour,
the Absolute Supreme will ring his own victory bell here on Earth
through the loving and serving heart of the United Nations""
This is the religious philosophy that guides the organization which
will soon have unchecked global authority. And it started long ago.
This coming December, the Chicago-based Parliament of the World's
Religions, led by New Age leader Jim Kenney, will convene for the
first time in six years in Cape Town, South Africa. The Parliament
of the World's Religions is another organization exerting tremendous
influence toward the new global interfaith movement. Its last
conference, in 1993, was the largest gathering of religious leaders
in history. This year's event promises to dwarf its predecessor.
The first groundbreaking ecumenical interfaith conference of the
Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions dates back to
1893. So we see that the desire to establish a new religion based on
a compromised version of many religions is not new at all. In
addition to Christians, Hindus, Jews, and Muslims, attending 1993ís
CPWR, were voodoo and druid priests, witches, snake charmers,
Zoroastrian sun worshippers, and representatives of Lucis Trust, an
organization whose original name was Lucifer Publishing Company.
Included in the concepts being promoted by the CPWR (www.cpwr.org)
are the need for an international order of peace, world disarmament,
world courts, global control over property rights and natural
resources, and global economic laws which they consider fair.
Another organization dressed in religion, yet having the same
political agenda, is the World Council of Churches, founded in 1948.
In 1994 at a meeting in Jerusalem, the WCC stated, ""After the
Second World War, the establishment of the World Council of Churches
signaled the resolve of the ecumenical community both to work for
the fuller unity of the church and to participate in the struggle
for a new just world order.""
Enter -- the United Religions
In his book, New Genesis, Robert Muller stated, ìI would
wholeheartedly support the creation of an institutional arrangement
in the UN or in UNESCO for a dialogue and cooperation between
religions."" In the fall of 1996, Muller's vision became reality
with the signing of the United Religions Initiative.
The initiative, signed by director William Swing, an Episcopalian
bishop, and by Muller himself, seeks to ""...bring religions and
spiritual traditions to a common table, a permanent, daily, global
assembly. There, respecting each other's distinctness, they will
seek to make peace among religions so they might work together for
the good of all life and the healing of the earth.""
In late June, 1999, the United Religions"" annual San Francisco
conference wrapped up, with their charter now virtually finalized
and ready for ratification. Since each of our religions will soon be
asked to join this organization and commit to its precepts, it would
be interesting to understand from where the UR is coming on certain
issues of significance to Bible-believing Christians. For this, we
go to the charter.
A theology of acceptance and diversity
We first read that ""the United Religions is a bridge-building
organization and not a religion."" We notice, however, that the UR
does have a theology. They say, ""Religion is concerned with the
relationship of human beings with their spiritual Origin. We believe
in the universality and eternity of the Spirit. We believe that all
religions derive their wisdom from that ultimate Source.""
While there is some measure of comfort that the words Origin and
Source are capitalized, it is difficult for a Bible-believer to
agree that Wicca, Zoroastrians, and Luciferians, to name but a few
UR member religions, derive their wisdom from God. Lucifer is not
God (see Isaiah 14:12).
The charter goes on, ""The United Religions promotes dialogue. A
theology of acceptance will help the world's people explore common
ground. Our awareness of unity within religious diversity promotes
Whatever theology we adhere to, it must include acceptance. This
means acceptance of Lucifer, Allah, Brahma, and Buddha. We are then
told that, as part of our theology, we must learn from these
religions and embrace them. This is Interfaithism.
""We believe,î the charter continues, ""that the wisdom of our
religious and spiritual traditions should be shared for the health
and well being of all. Therefore, as communities of faith and
interdependent people rooted in our faith, we now unite for the sake
of peace and healing among religions, peoples and nations, and for
the benefit of the earth and all living beings.""
The God described in the Bible does not embrace diversity when it
crosses the line to pagan worship. His people are to be a separated
people. The UR, however, ""embraces all our diversity... We share a
profound respect for the sacred source and wisdom of each
religion."" But do all religions come from a sacred source?
In other parts of the charter, we see direct connections to the
United Nations. The United Religions endorses the UN's International
Criminal Court. ""We unite to support freedom of religion and belief
and the rights of all individuals, as set forth in international
law,î it reads.
The UR & wealth redistribution
Other ""non-religious"" items on the UR's agenda include open
support of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the
Universal Declaration of Human Responsibilities. They parrot UN
policy on ""Sustainable and Just Economomics."" The UR charter
defines Sustainable Economics as ""an economic system that utilizes
the world's finite resources prudently and sparingly."" Just
Economics is ìa system in which created wealth is distributed in a
fair and equitable manner... Currently, a tremendous gap exists
between the rich and the poor. The twenty richest nations contain
17% of the world's population, yet own 75% of the world's wealth.""
Is it coincidence that wealth redistribution is also the central
plank of Communism? Is it coincidence that the UR is based at the
Presidio in San Francisco, the same place as Mikhail Gorbachev's
U.S. Headquarters? Gorbachev, the man who allegedly killed
Communism, still openly admits he is a communist.
The UR & environmentalism
""The human community and the natural world will go into the future
as a single sacred community, or we will both perish,î begins the
UR's dissertation on environmentalism. ""We live in an
interdependent web of life; all living beings are both sacred and
connected. Recent human activities, which have taken place in
aggressive opposition to nature, have resulted in an ecological
crisis that includes: deforestation, the loss of wild lands,
overpopulation, the loss of productive agricultural lands,
degradation of the resources of the water planet, dependence on non-
renewable energy sources, and extinction of species.""
The suggestion is made to increase global awareness of this serious
environmental crisis. The UR proposed solution is to
promote ""solstice and equinox festivals which celebrate the changes
on the planet."" As incredible as it may seem, the intention appears
to be the revival of pagan sun and moon worship. Don't be surprised
if we see Christmas, in the future, replaced by or merged with a
celebration of the winter solstice's birth of the pagan sun god.
The United Religions intends ""to lead the way in addressing the
issue of global climate changes, by modeling the use of new,
renewable energy sources and energy-efficient technologies, and
creating pressure for lower-cost sources of renewable energy.""
A spiritual component is being planned for the opening ceremonies of
the first Olympics in the new millennium, scheduled for Salt Lake
City. The UR has plans to participate in the high profile opening
Political unity requires religious unity
The United Nations needs the United Religions. As explained in the
charter, ""There is a dire need to revisit the global economic
system from a religious/spiritual perspective in order to make some
fundamental changes."" Efforts by the UN in this direction are often
frustrated by the domination of national interests in that body. In
addition, the corporate sector's dominance of world economic
practice lacks a moral, socially responsible foundation.
Without religious unity, world government has no chance. Hence --
Global ethic not optional
Perhaps the most noteworthy contribution to humanity from the CPWR
is its endorsement and promotion of a document called ""Towards a
Global Ethic, An Initial Declaration,î written by Hans Kung, a
Catholic theologian, and associate Robert Muller. His global ethic,
which is fast being adopted as Interfaithism's creed, outlines a set
of basic core values to which all of the world's religions can agree.
Well, almost all. One of those core values is to believe that each
religion is a valid pathway to God. A Bible-based Christian cannot
accept this. To not accept this, of course, is not a license for
Christians to insult, hate, and kill people of other religious
persuasions. And yet, Bible-based Christianity is held as a threat
to the New World Order. The battle, after all, is spiritual.
As globalism expert Gary Kah reports in his new book, The New World
Religion, ""Mr. Kung makes clear that participation in this
new ""ethic"" (religion) will not be optional. He states, ""Any form
of... church conservatism is to be rejected... To put it bluntly: no
regressive or repressive relgion -- whether Christian, Islamic,
Jewish or of whatever provenance -- has a long-term future... If
ethics is to function for the well-being of all, it must be
indivisible. The undivided world increasingly needs an undivided
ethic. Post modern men and women need common values, goals, ideals,
visions. But the great question in dispute is: does not all this
presuppose a religious faith?... What we need is an ecumenical world
Kung's global ethic takes platforms of justice and peace, women's
rights, environmentalism, and tolerance of sin, and turns them into
humanistic commandments that replace the Ten Commandments.
The empowerment of global religion
Will the United Religions Charter and Hans Kung's global ethic have
authority over us one day? If not, then there is little cause for
concern. The fact is, however, the United Nations is behind the
United Religions. They call themselves sister organizations, but the
fact is, one gave birth to the other.
No, the United Religions and the global ethic have no authority over
us -- today, that is. Its authority will come from the United
Nations when the time is right.
The stakes are suddenly higher. The UN's recent activity in Kosovo
under the auspices of its world army, NATO, exemplifies its power,
and that power increases with each passing day. The UN has authority
and is beginning to wield it more and more.
Any nation that does not bend to the will of the International
Community faces economic sanctions or military action. The time will
soon come when economic sanctions will be imposed at the individual
level. Individuals will be forced to pledge allegiance to the United
Nations and its now-forming world religion. If they refuse, they
will be boycotted by the cashless society of the New World Order.
They will not be permitted to buy or sell.
The ultimate choice
While United Religions and the global ethic appear on the surface to
be harmless enough, in reality this is the beginning of the end.
Ultimately, we will be forced to make a decision between Jesus and
Satan. We will choose between our exclusive claim on Jesus Christ as
Lord and Savior vs. a watered-down anti-biblical document. We will
be asked to accept that spiritual truths can be found in all of the
world's religions and that there is more than one path to heaven. A
Bible-believing Christian cannot agree to this.
If you were ever faced with the ultimatum by the International
Community to sign the global ethic, what would you do? Decide now.
And don't flip a coin.
Interfaith Christian? There is no such thing. Add this term to your
list of oxymorons.
