A Global Religion

Summary: The new global order in economics, education, and politics all boil down to the creation of the new world religion, which worships the Cosmic Christ.
 
This article is part of a series. We recommend that you first read: The United Nations' Global Government.
 

As we have seen, the crux of the United Nations’ new world order is global control, in part through a new world religion. As Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations says, “Was it not inevitable that the UN would sooner or later also acquire a spiritual dimension?”i

This new religion encompasses all existing religions into its worship of the New Age Cosmic Christ, who is Satan. And the United Nations is at the forefront of this spiritual movement.

According to James Wardner, New Ager William Irwin Thomson says that, "the form of the church in the New Age will remain the same; thus, churchgoers are less likely to notice that there has been a change in the message. He says, "the new spirituality does not reject the earlier patterns of the great universal religions. Priest and church will not disappear; they will not be forced out of existence in the New Age, they will be absorbed into existence of the New Age."ii Robert Muller and New Age theosophist Alice Bailey explain this concept further:

Robert Muller's Thoughts on Global Religion

Do not worry if not all religions will join the United religions organization. Many nations did not join the UN at its beginning, but later regretted (sic) it and made every effort to join. It was the same with the European community and it will be the case with the world’s religions because whoever stays out or aloof will sooner or later regret it.iii

Pope John Paul II said that we were the stonecutters and artisans of a cathedral which we might never see in its finished beauty. I would not have dreamed that when I joined the United Nations a third of a century ago. The scope of the UN has widened in every direction, owing to the imperatives of a new global interdependent world. But people do not really know how vast and vital its activities are...

The tapestry of its work encompasses the total condition of humankind on this planet. All this is part of one of the most prodigious pages of evolution. It will require the detachment and objectivity of future historians to appraise fully what happened in the last third of our century and to understand what the real significance of the United Nations was.iv

There is a famous poster which shows Christ knocking at the tall United Nations building, wanting to enter it. I often visualize in my mind another even more accurate painting: that of a United Nations which would be the body of Christ.v

Peace will be impossible without the taming of fundamentalism through a United Religion that professes faithfulness only to the global spirituality and to the health of this planet.vi

I am more and more drawn to some of the very simple but extremely important teachings of the Christ and of all the great prophets and visionaries. I am increasingly convinced that what they foresaw is beginning to become a reality on this planet and that humanity is transcending or metamorphosing itself into what those great dreamers, visionaries and prophets envisioned.vii

The world’s major religions in the end all want the same thing, even though they were born in different places and circumstances on this planet. What the world needs today is a convergence of the different religions in the search for and definition of the cosmic or divine laws which ought to regulate our behavior on this planet. World-wide spiritual ecumenism, expressed in new forms of religious cooperation and institutions, would probably be closest to the heart of the resurrected Christ.viii

No 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.ix

My great personal dream is to get a tremendous alliance between all the major religions and the UN.x

Muller is right when he says that the UN "is not a man-made creation." It is another pawn in the diabolical plan to steal God's Kingdom—a plan that will ultimately fail when Christ returns to claim what is His.

Alice Bailey's Thoughts on Global Religion

There will not be any dissociation between the Universal Church, the Sacred Lodge of all true Masons and the inner circles of the esoteric societies...In this way, the goals and work of the United Nations shall be solidified and a new Church of God, led by all the religions and by all of the spiritual groups, shall put an end to the great heresy of separateness.xi

The New World Religion must be based upon those truths [Right human relations, peace] which have stood the test of the ages...they are steadily taking shape in human thinking, and for them the United Nations fights.xii

Alice Bailey.

The same old formulas, the same old theologies and the same old interpretations are deemed adequate to meet man’s modern needs and enquiries. They are not. The church today is the tomb of the Christ and the stone of theology has been rolled to the door of the sepulcher.xiii

Thus the expressed aims and efforts of the United Nations will be eventually brought to fruition and a new church of God, gathered out of all religions and spiritual groups, will unitedly bring to an end the great heresy of separateness. Love, unity, and the Risen Christ will be present, and He will demonstrate to us the perfect life.xiv

The day is dawning when all religions will be regarded as emanating from one great spiritual source; all will be seen as unitedly providing the one root out of which the universal world religion will inevitably emerge. Then there will be neither Christian nor heathen, neither Jew nor Gentile, but simply one great body of believers, gathered out of all the current religions. They will accept the same truths, not as theological concepts but as essential to spiritual living; They will stand together on the same platform of brotherhood and of human relations; they will recognize divine sonship and will seek unitedly to co-operate with the divine Plan...such a world religion is no idle dream but something which is definitely forming today.xv

It’s Happening

Unfortunately, the unity of religions that Muller and Bailey called for is taking place. As Bailey says, this global religion "is definitely forming today."

In June of 1995, an Interfaith Summit Conference was held in San Francisco for the purpose of “uniting the world’s religions into a global organization.” Called the United Religions Organization (URO), this organization is an international, inter-religious organization modeled after and affiliated with the United Nations. “According to its literature,” states W.B. Howard of Despatch Ministries, “the URO launched its written charter this past June 1997. The institution should be fully in place by June 2000 and globally operational by June, 2005.”xvi

The URO will “cooperate closely with the U.N. and its organizations to complement the U.N.’s political, diplomatic and social mandates, influence U.N. policy and support its programs.”xvii

The Dalai Lama...

These are just the first steps in creating a religion to fit everyone. As a 1996 issue of Discernment Newsletter reminds us, "The mystical traditions in the mainline denominations easily interact with those of the heathen religions of the world. Meditation practices, ‘visualization’ techniques, and breathing exercises are now being used to ‘tap into’ the spiritual realm. In this, such religious leaders as the Pope and the Dalai Lama are very much on the same plane.”xviii

World Goodwill, a New Age organization, explains the goals of the new global religion:

The churches and the world religions should indicate the unity within all facets of truth which will provide a universal platform, one to which all men everywhere could give allegiance. Such a platform should include: The truth that...all men are divine. The truth that evolution governs the growth of the human being...The fact of immortality and of eternal persistence [reincarnation], arising from man’s essential divinity (emphasis added).xix

The coming world teacher will be mainly concerned, not with the result of past error and inadequacy but with the requirements of a new world order and with the reorganisation of the social structure.”xx

In August 2000, an article appeared in Le Soir, a Belgian national newspaper, about this global religion based in the UN. Here is an excerpt:

A general rehearsal is taking place at the highest level, in a forum where the Supreme Being, grand architect, or watchmaker of the universe, if he exists at all, is to recognise his own...at a time when the United Nations will shortly host the summit of the millennium, with the presence of the heads of state of the entire world, all the world’s religious leaders have been gathering in New York to discuss the most important theme of world peace and tolerance.

The more distant objective: to create a kind of United Nations of faith where the representatives of faith and philosophies could meet and in order to discuss the future together, whilst abandoning their fatwas, theses, and other terrible arms of excommunication and exclusion and relegating them to the cloak room.

This is a very noble “ecumenical initiative”, with the widest possible meaning, having been called into being despite the lack of initiative of the UN, by Ted Turner, who funded the initiative. He is the vice-president of Time Warner Inc. and founder of CNN. For every sin there is grace: ten years ago, the flamboyant boss of instantaneous television had declared that Christianity was nothing but an affair for “losers and freaks” (emphasis added).xxi

It's obvious that we each have a decision to make. As Joshua said so eloquently those thousands of years ago, "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve...but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD" (Joshua 24:15).
