THE CUTTING EDGE
NEWS BRIEF: "World Needs A Global Religion", by Joe Rogaly, written for The Financial Times, distributed by Scripps Howard News Service, and republished by the New Haven Register, January 11, 1998.
Before we get started on our article, let us examine some pertinent Scripture. In Matthew 24, Jesus gave us the many events by which all men shall know that the End of the Age is upon us. Clearly, we will be able to know the approximate "Time of Our Visitation". Listen to Jesus' Words, given after He had enunciated the major prophecies which will occur as the world gets ready for Antichrist and then goes through the Tribulation Period.
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
In The Cutting Edge Ministry, we demonstrate to you that you CAN see that the End of the Age IS truly upon us, and once you know both Bible Prophecy and the New World Order Plan, you can see the march of the End of the Age progressing in your daily news.
This editorial is one of the finest examples of the approaching "Signs of the End of the Age". One of the great themes of the Tribulation Period is that the world will have a One World Government, Economy, and Religion. [Revelation 13]
With this information as background, please read the pertinent passages of this above article very carefully. Many of the insights into human nature and our society are truly good; in fact, they are so good you might even think they came from a pastor from the pulpit.
"Christianity is a mature enterprise. It has survived for nearly 2,000 years. The question is, will it last out the next century? If it does not, it could be because it has allowed itself to be broken up into rival institutions. The lesson is clear. It must merge or bust. The same might be said of all organized religions, including Judaism ... and relative newcomers like Islam."
"... the number of people who say they have no religion has risen sharply during the past quarter-century. Everywhere, it seems, willingness to attend services is less strong than the natural human desire for faith, certainty, and rules of behavior. We all know why. The value of formal worship in public buildings is being blasted out of people's minds. The cult of the individual marches in triumph across the globe, in lock-step behind science and capitalism ... The extended family is disintegrating. People are less likely to live close to one another in coherent sub-tribal groups ... Personal advancement is our driving motive. Enterprise, competition, self-reliance are the ruling precepts ... The selfish motive is uppermost. Pirates rule." [NOTE: Emphasis mine. Don't these concepts sound like they came from a pastor from a pulpit?]
"Only a belief in the spiritual self can soften the effect of this counter-human revolution. Alas, the defenders of the spirit are divided, squabbling among themselves, sulking in their tents ... Lacking cohesion, their strength, once irresistible, is draining away. In such a situation, any prudent undertaking will try to restructure itself. The great religions must be amalgamated. A series of takeovers is required. The breakup of Christianity should be reversed. The Church of Rome should join hands with that of Constantinople. The rest -- Episcopalians, Methodists, Baptists, Seventh Day Adventists -- should be coaxed in."
"True believers in God, the soul, and a hereafter, would be wise to go further. A new planetary religious confederation, the spirit of ecumenical endeavor, could match the globalization of material wealth-creation. Churches would sit alongside synagogues, mosques, temples. The great faith systems of China and Japan would meet those originating in the Middle East and India ... we need ways of rescuing religion ... Our generally shared set of beliefs determines our behavior. Capitalist predators can be good Christians, Jews, Hindus ... So can politicians, civil servants, the white coats who rule our laboratories. We all need some form of religion. Without it, we shall be reconstituted as androids."
What is so incredible about this editorial, originally written in The Financial Times, is that its wording could very well have come from a typical New Age magazine or book. In other words this is "fringe" writing now being written in the mainstream press. This generally means that the actual fulfillment is under way. While we have seen many articles in the past 3 decades promoting the One World Church, I have never seen one written in the language of the New Age, as this one was written.
This author certainly strikes all the typical themes in arguing for a One World Church:
1) Man is inherently religious
2) Religious principles "softens" man's animal instincts, making us "civilized" enough to be able to live together in a society that promotes the general welfare.
3) Religion is needed also to enable man to properly handle his material possessions, preventing our collective society from disintegrating into lawless chaos
However, in order to achieve this Utopian State, religion must get its act together. Today, religion is hopelessly split into so many, many warring groups. This author lists the major segments of religion:
2) Roman Catholic Church
3) Greek Orthodox Church
5) Eastern Mysticism, especially those in China and Japan
6) Hinduism in India
Of course, this list is not complete by any means, but it is complete enough to serve the needs of this author in arguing for a world wide religion. Peter Lemesurier, in " The Armageddon Script", goes still further in arguing for a global religion. He states that, because mankind is inherently religious, it needs a Messiah figure to arise! This Messiah would act as a lightening rod, in drawing to himself all the expectations of the major religions for a Messiah. Then, when all those Messianic expectations have been fulfilled in one man, the world will be a far better place, because it can then go about the business of realizing their own inherent godhead, and can then begin to enter an indefinite golden period of peace and safety! Thus, Lemesurier argues that mankind needs to be deceived! When the New Age Christ deceives the peoples of the world into believing that he is their long-awaited Messiah, he will be doing them the favor of removing their false expectations so they can begin their spiritual maturity, under his leadership, of course!
This particular article fits this mold, but this one is mainstream, so it can further the process of conditioning the peoples of the world to accept a Global Religion. We see the giant hand of the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan here, don't you?
For those of you who have not heard of the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan before, we will offer a brief explanation, below. While we have written about it on many occasions, the most complete work is found in NEWS1055, "Review of Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan And How It Is Being Used Today". We encourage you to read it now.
The Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan gives New World Order Planners the ability to silently, almost invisibly, change the attitudes and values of the entire population of a people. They must achieve this before they stage the appearance of their Christ. You will have trouble believing how much of your daily life is being manipulated, but once you understand how this is being accomplished, you can take steps to reduce its effect or eliminate it. This is how this Plan works:
Step 2. At first, the public is shocked, then outraged.
Step 3. But, the VERY FACT that such a thing could be publicly debated becomes the SUBJECT
of the debate.
Step 4. In the process, sheer repetition of the shocking subject under discussion gradually dulling its effect.
Step 5. People then are no longer shocked by the subject.
Step 6. No longer outraged, people begin to argue for positions to moderate the extreme; or, they accept the premise, challenging, instead, the means to ACHIEVE it.
In this instance of conditioning people to accept a Global Religion, we are at the very end of a process which began in earnest in 1948, when the World Council of Churches was established. This Apostate Church sought to unite men under one global religious banner on the basis of what united rather than on what separated. This basis for uniting men and women has always been able to appeal to the logic of the human mind, even though it is totally un-Biblical. Let us examine the Biblical Truth of remaining separate from the false religions which Satan has always perpetrated upon mankind.
1) God told the Israelites that they were to remain a people separated from the false religions of the peoples which surrounded them in their new Promised Land.
a) Deuteronomy 7:6 -- "For you are a holy and set-apart people to the Lord; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a special people to Himself out of all the peoples of the earth." [Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
b) Deuteronomy 18:9 -- "When you come into the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of these nations." God then lists the religious practices of witchcraft, divining the future, being a medium, a sorcerer, a necromancer, or wizard.
c) Joshua 24:14-16 -- "Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods"
d) Revelation 18:4-5 -- "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her [the evil, false system], my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities."
This emphasis on separating yourself from false religions so you can wholeheartedly serve the One True God is called, " Sanctification". Since this term is likely unfamiliar with most people, we will spend a few moments explaining it. " SANCTIFICATION -- The process of being made holy resulting in a changed life-style for the believer ... In the Greek New Testament, the root hag- is the basis of hagiasmos, "holiness," "consecration," "sanctification"; hagiosyne, "holiness"; hagiotes, "holiness"; hagiazo "to sanctify," "consecrate," "treat as holy," "purify"; and hagios, "holy," "saint." The root idea of the Greek stem is to stand in awe of something or someone ... Thus, God is separate; things and people dedicated to Him and to His use are separate. The moral implications of this word came into focus with the prophets and became a major emphasis in the New Testament. See Holy." [Holman Bible Dictionary]
We understand this principle of separating oneself from infection in the area of medicine. Doctors routinely quarantine infected people until they are either cured or until they die, so as to prevent their sickness from infecting healthy people. The same principle works in separating yourself from false religions. God's people are always told to be wary of being infected by false religions. Separation is always mandated.
But, in the End of the Age, we are warned that false messiahs and false teaching would suddenly come into vogue, and would lead away many people to their eternal destruction [Matthew 24:11-12, 24; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12]. In fact, the very existence of such a huge, global effort to bring all religions into one fold is a major sign of the End of the Age. Apostate, Liberal Christian groups attempt to justify their grouping together despite doctrinal differences, on the basis of the Lord's prayer in John 17, where Jesus is praying to His Father, that His church will be unified. However, in this passage, Jesus prays that this unification be done on the basis of TRUTH! [read 17:17, 19]. Thus, no Christian can justify joining forces with a group which denies key doctrines of Scripture. Yet, this is exactly the trap that so many "Christian" churches are falling into today. They are allowing themselves to join with groups that do not even believe that Jesus Christ is God come in human flesh and that He is the only way to Heaven! Protestants are even joining forces with the Roman Catholic Church, even though the Catholics teach "another Gospel", and even though the Pope has been selected as the top religious leader of the New World Order Religion, a fact that positively identifies him as the False Prophet of Revelation! [See NEWS1052 for full details]
Today, the world is rushing into the One World Church of the False Prophet and Antichrist, of which Scripture foretells. Last year, a United Religions was established, with the goal of finalizing their organization by the year 2,000! [See NEWS1094] Now, here we see this editorial, which is designed to further this unification process amongst the intelligentsia of the Financial World. The hour truly grows late. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually. If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
