Prophecy In Action: Towards a United Faith

By Dana G Smith


We are following a course today in the world which brings us headlong into a New World of Globalization and beliefs. Because of the many troubles facing the world today with starvation, famine, plagues, poverty, terrorism, and in religious intolerance, the need to find an answer is paramount. Because of this many organizations are working with the United Nations to bring in the vision of a New World Order. This NWO, as we shall call it, is especially interested in what you believe.

There are many nations, peoples, and tongues, all living together on this planet. We must get along in order to survive. Thus maintaining human dignity among peoples and the traditions they hold too, a United Faith is paramount to peace in the world. The United Nations actually recognized this fact long ago, when in 1981, a resolution was brought up, among many. This particular resolution, Article one of 36/55 made in November of that year stated the rights of people to have “freedom of thought, conscience, and religion”. The stated aforementioned article also said these freedoms may be “manifested in his religion or belief of his choice”, stating further that “no one shall be subject to coercion which would impair this freedom”. While this sounds a fair and just resolution at a glance, the end note of the resolution states that this freedom to manifest this religion or belief is “subject to limitations as are prescribed by law”.

The problem exists, of course in the obvious. If you live in Egypt, one who is a Christian cannot take a bible on the street, preach, or use any other attempt to profess his or her faith on the matter. This also goes as well in many Muslim nations. The course of this freedom is limited by Islamic law. In India, for instance, one can be a Hindu, Muslim, Christian, or other faith holder and still be in the law. The problem here is in the violence incurred on other faiths because of their beliefs. It is this violence, in the name of religion that these resolutions attempt to stop. While on the outside this seems good, in fact, it is bringing in the “son of perdition” and his rise to global power and dominance. It is here that this Power broker will deceive the nations, and employ religious observance upon all who live at this time.

The United Nations, then, with the backing of many other’s put together the “Commission on Human Rights”. This Commission issued a resolution (2003/4) titled “Combating the Defamation of Religions”. It calls for the “international community to promote a culture of tolerance based on the human rights and respect for religious diversity”. They are to do this in the confines of national and international state nations, utilizing religious bodies, print media, and electronic media to conform public opinion towards a united faith objective. Again, while the objectives seem good, the method they use is the law, administered by the United Nations and cooperating nations. This means all peoples will be the subject of this law, no matter what individual nations may hold too. [“Quotes” are excerpts from: wfdd.org.uk/unitednations.html]

The United Nations has had one goal of strengthening it’s own power on the nations. They see themselves as the power brokers, the peace keepers, the universal marshal’s of the World. They envision themselves bringing in a New World full of peace and prosperity. One, in which, all religions, peoples, traditions, and faiths are in God and God in them. This vision brings in a hope which a humanistic world order brings to bear values of human thought and desires. This vision they are bringing in follows the prophetic words in Psalm two.

Psalms 2:1  ¶Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

The cords they are looking to break away from are the commandments and oracles of the Lord God. These nations see themselves as administrating a world that is unto itself in morality, aside from God and if God exists, then whatever they do is fine with him. After all, many believe this God created the world and then left it to us to fix up as we see fit.

Furthermore, other groups have joined the chorus led by the United Nations. In 2006 a study sponsored by the Vatican and the World Council of Churches stated openly the line of the United Nations that “freedom of religion connotes the freedom, without any obstruction, to practice one’s own faith” In this statement many would agree with. That is until you actually read the proverbial fine print which is inherent in all these documents and studies. It goes on to say this “right entails the equally non-negotiable responsibility to respect faiths other than our own, and never to denigrate, vilify or misrepresent them for the purpose of affirming superiority of our faith”.

Moreover, the “right to invite others to an understanding” of one’s own faith “should not be exercised by violating other’s rights and religious sensibilities”. In the sense of what many today in the Christian realm would consider ‘evangelization’, Muslims and others would say this right is actually violating theirs. As a result, Christians could not evangelize as such. In fact, this very study comes out and says “All should heal themselves from the obsession of converting others”.[“Quotes” are excerpts from: www2.wcc-coe.org/pressreleasesen.nsf/index/pu-06-04.html]

With the Catholic Church, Pope, and many others onboard, the stage is now being set. The term being coined for this unifying belief is plurality of religions, which is seen as a co-existent equality of faiths coming together for the benefit of mankind, which has in its unique characteristic faith in God or some higher power. In 2002 the World Council of Churches brought forth a study session on the theological approach to religious plurality. The result was a document to understanding this issue from the WCC and the United Nations approach. God is seen as the Creator and is present and active in all religions. Therefore the WCC conclusion is that it is “inconceivable to us that God’s saving activity is confined to any one continent, cultural type, or group of people”. Further, they were opened to the “possibility that the God we know in Jesus Christ may encounter us also in the lives of our neighbors of other faiths.” For the believer in Christ who walks in the declaration to: Go ye into the entire world and preach the gospel to all creatures that our Lord gave us, these words are blasphemy. To think that people would not like us revealing the true salvation as was given by Jesus Christ to the Apostles, for instance, when Jesus said “ I am the Way, The Truth, the Life, no man comes to the Father but by me” John 14:6 is something we could not even consider foregoing. To actually hear that an organization who calls itself after Christ would say that there is saving activity or even Jesus Christ himself in other religions or faiths is unbelievable. That is until you understand the prophetic times in which we live. In the last days, people simply will not endure sound doctrine.

Furthermore, in 2006, The Most Reverend Dr. Rowan Williams, then the Archbishop of Canterbury, the most senior bishop in the established church in England and leader of the Anglican Communion around the world gave stark words confirming that other faith’s and religions could arrive at the same place of forgiveness and communion with God. He said that when others have “arrived at a place where forgiveness and adoption are sensed and valued, even when these things are not directly spoken of in the language of another faith’s mainstream reflection, are we to say that God has not found a path for himself?” [“Quotes” excerpts from: oikoumene.org/en/resources/documents/assembly/porto-alegre-2006/2-plenary-presentations/christian-identity-religious-plurality/rowan-williams-presentation.html]

This suggests is that other faiths can bring you to the Father, actually doing it at the same level that Christians in Jesus Christ claim. This is actually coming from the Anglican Communion, if you can believe it. For many today, both the WCC and the Anglican community, along with others in the Christian arena are known as the ‘apostate’ church, one we call Sardis.

Revelation 3:1  ¶And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

The continuing dialog all spawned from the United Nations initiatives, United Faiths organizations, the Catholic Church, along with the WCC which began some time ago. The WCC and the Vatican put together a joint dialogue in 2006 which will conclude in 2009. This effort consists of a conversion code of conduct. While we see that many Christians may seem to support this idea, it lies in the antithesis of what Christ called us to do. When you do spread Gods word and the message of Christ, will you be violating the laws of the world? If you do spread the word of God, will other Christians despise you for violating the right of religion which all peoples are to have?

The code aims to ease tensions with Muslims, Hindus and other religious groups that fear losing adherents and resort to punishments as extreme as imprisonment and even death for converts from their faith and foreign missionaries.

WCC said the code of conduct should serve as an “advocacy tool in discussions with governments considering anti-conversion laws (and) help to advance the cause of religious freedom.” The rules should also address concerns in other religions about Christians seeking converts, and inspire those faiths to “consider their own codes of conduct,” it added.

In conclusion, the Catholic Church set up some time ago the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue. This dialogue is there to help bring in the Catholic’s church desire to be the instrument of Christ in the last days. The Church declares itself the only true body of Christ, due to their perceived apostolic succession. They also see all faiths as outside of theirs, but they all have an inherent presence of God, Gods word, and His Spirit. This dialogue reveals in excerpts what they truly believe. The dialogue states there is good, found in the “minds and hearts”, but also in “the rites and customs of the peoples”. This brings to the forefront that all rites, customs, beliefs of people are good. That in these is good things. These have religious traditions with positive values. These values are attributed “to the active presence of God through His Word, pointing to the universal action of the Spirit.” Thus equating values attained through other faiths as coming from Gods Word and the action of His Spirit. It is, according to this dialogue that the “sincere practice” which these people follow are the result of their own faith and that they respond, following the “dictates of their own conscience”, this according to the Pontifical Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue says these faiths will “respond positively to Gods invitation and receive salvation in Jesus Christ, even while they do not recognize or acknowledge him as their savior”.

PONTIFICAL COUNCIL FOR INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUE, DIALOGUE AND PROCLAMATION, Reflection And Orientations On Interreligious Dialogue

And The Proclamation Of The Gospel Of Jesus Christ [“Quotes” excerpts from: www.vatican.va/roman_curia/pontifical_councils/interelg/documents/rc_pc_interelg_doc_19051991_dialogue-and-proclamatio_en.html]

It can hardly even be believed that one can have Salvation in God through Christ Jesus without recognizing Him or acknowledging him as their savior. This is all smoke and mirror, religious theological tripe which will soothe the New World Order and its current model for Religious diversity and tolerance. It is one which says all paths are in God, they lead to a higher awareness and power. One which will lead you to the next new advent for man, while taking away any need for the gospel commission or even following the example of the Apostles.

2 Peter 2:1  ¶But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
