If you had a one world religion, it would have to be so woolly as to be meaningless.

I suggest the religion demanded by a one-world government would say;

1) You must believe that the one-world government is wonderful

2) You can believe anything you like that is compatible with 1).

Just as the Roman Empire would accept most religions as long as you were prepared to take part in the official religion as well, and not be a menace to the power of the state.

A one world religion could never be enforced. If people don't have the option to believe in whatever they choose, they will do it on the sly, hold meetings in secret, or openly do it, even if they have to die for their beliefs.

It would be like telling people they could have no religion at all.

To most people, with strong beliefs, it wouldn't matter anyway because to limit them, or do away with it altogether would make them martyrs if they didn't follow the plan.

There is only one true God and one true religion.

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

i totally agree.
patriotism is a religion and already if you don't believe you are a potential 'terrorist'.........because to be without a government is "terrifying"
it's already happening- if you can make a man god (jesus, the pope) or even have the power of a god (hitler, gw bush, hendrix) then you allow for any man to be a god. it's all very crafty and convenient.
it also prohibits any fringe element to claim knowledge of god that doesn't conform to the norm.
at least the mormons are up front about their deal- what we are experiencing today, with the government as god (China....Mao..?) is underhanded and dirty. it's behind the scenes and the conformity that's happening is so subtle and devious.....

ugh

A one world religion has been predicted, and we have already seen it on the rise. The thing about it is that it is not something new, it is actually something very, very old.

We have become like the ancient civilizations that were polytheistic. People could worship multiple "gods" even if those gods were opposed to each other. The Unitarian Universalist religion has pretty much incorporated every religion into its belief system. It claims that all religions are a path to god and so you can worship however you want and still be right. It fits in perfectly with the postmodern mindset of "whatever works for you is right for you, but whatever works for me is true for me, even if our ideas are completely opposite."

The One world Religion will not be a a new or exclusive religion. It will open its arms and tell people that they can believe whatever they want. After everyone is sucked into it, they will start having small things that everyone must agree on, and eventually set up the world leader (of the NWO since that will come first) as god. Everyone will still be able to worship as they please, but they must worship him.

Those who have monotheistic faiths (Jews, Christians and Muslims) will not join the order, believing that there is no other way to God except by their practice, and so they can not condone and approve of the worship of the other religions as being legit. They will be seen as enemies and troublemakers, and as a result their religions will be banned.

There will be many who posed as being of those monotheistic faiths, but will see it as being easier to just get along with everyone and so they will abandon their faith to join a one world religion where they can still believe in Jesus or Mohammad, they just have to say that their belief is not the only correct belief.

You will see the church at its strongest, because as all the posers and hypocrites leave the true believers will be able to show the world what faith in God and His son was supposed to really look like. The amazing part of it is, the Christian church will actually flourish under the persecution, just as it has always done in the past. It is when the christian church became government sponsored and promoted by any nation or state that it started to apathy and weaken, as it becomes filled with all sorts of people who only believe when it is beneficial to them.

That, my friend, is what I think you are looking at happening. There have been other threads posted regarding a one world religion on the rise. Obama has a religion czar, and some British guy is also heading up some interfaith movement. That's what they are also called by the way. These interfaith movements are often aimed at uniting religions together, making them tolerate each other to the point of declaring others' beliefs to be just as valid as their own.

I agree with you one hundred per cent, except that I fear that the second group will include much of the leadership of Christian groups, thanks to the interfaith movements you mention further down. They would try to take their groups with them, making the discernment process very messy.

I agree, and regretfully there will be large numbers to do so because it is often the mega-churches that compromise the core Christian values, and fail to lead the people to a deeper understanding of their faith.

Should the leaders of those massive churches do such a thing, the results would be disastrous. We will see "christians" turning against Christians, somewhat in the same way we see radical muslims attacking moderate ones. Only, since the shallow "christians" who turn to this universalist faith won't have any guts, they wont attack anyone. They will be the loyal government dogs that turn in their neighbor for the cash reward.

I believe you are correct. In order to have one religion, you would first have to have one government. A government of that size would have to maintain a very tight grip on its citizens if order were to be maintained and would require (as do all totalitarian solutions) that the citizens make the welfare of the state their primary concern. This makes the state the defacto object of worship.

I think my opinion of a one world religion is already pretty clear, but just to make sure...

It's a terrible thing and I hate the idea.

That being said, I think that is is going to try to happen. Mostly because I think it has already been prophesied as well as the current developments and movements toward something like it. Some people think the Catholic Church is going to be the staging ground for the beginning of the one world religion. As corrupt as I think that denomination may be, I don't imagine that drastic of a change coming soon, so I see that particular scenario as being unlikely, though plausible.

Now, this is a bit of speculation. Supposing, in the long term, the focal point for a one-world religion might be something like the personification of the "Gaia" concept? This could be an attachment point for all sorts of religious viewpoints, New Age and traditional, and including the Catholic devotion relating to the Blessed Virgin.

This need not be separated from the other line of thought, that "worship of the government" would be the official religion. The two features could run hand in hand.

The only religion that has ever had a fighting chance of making this happen was the rcc. Now look at 'em. They've got one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel.

Christianity is a close second, but there are so many offshoots that have bastardized the religion as a whole, that aint happening either. If they can't keep their own flock under one umbrella, how are they going to put everyone else there?

Islam has a large number of followers worldwide, but every time a leader opens his mouth, he lets the world know just how ignorant to reality they really are [ kinda reminds you of the other 2 huh? ] Some people may need something to follow in their life, but I can't see 6.9 billion people following THAT.

And as far as governments instigating all this to make it happen? Most governments in this world can't even properly govern themselves on a social or economic scale. If they want to go across the street and put all religions in one car, they have to prove themselves of being able to fill up the first car. And they haven't done that yet.

Sorry, I think all this NWO one world religion nonsense is just that.......nonsense.



Peace

The Government wants only one religion, and not more then one religion.
The religion is like a suit that you wear. Religion isn't for everyone.

Being fanatical or self righteous is not an indicator of correctness. It is an indicator of stubborn bloody mindedness.

As soon as any religion graduates from cult status, it fractures. Christians have been fighting "christians" (to use your symbolistic emphasis) since day 1 of the religion.

My view is this the world already has one world religion its just broken into many different names and locations. I say this for all the religions I speak of that influence LIGHT are all sending the same message to their listeners, which is DO YOUR BEST DOWN HERE TO BE POSITIVE AND AVOID NEGATIVITY AND YOU WILL MAKE IT TO A BETTER PLACE... No matter what religion the message is clear so there is no need to CREATE ANOTHER ONE THEY ARE FINE WITH THESE.

And that's exactly what this one world religion would look like, using the excuse that we are all about the same anyway.

There are so many religions that are nothing like what you mentioned, however, that your theory doesn't really have much of a leg to stand on saying that we all already have the same religion.

Some religions say there is no afterlife at all (like some sects of Buddhism, one of the largest religions in the world). Others say that you live as a ghost, or you are reincarnated.

Some, like Satanists, are only out for themselves. The entire thing is about making yourself your own god and doing whatever you want. This is pretty different from the religions aimed at worshiping God or trying to save the planet.

Of course most religions are going to try and sell the idea of "believe this and you'll have a better life after death than everyone else." Nobody would believe if you told them that by believing something, they would have a worse fate than everyone else. What would be the point?

I wasn't arguing the correctness. I was simply making reference to the traitorous hypocrites (from any religion really) that will turn on the people they used to worship along side. My point was to suggest what I think would be the response of the people (both those devoted to their faith and those who are merely acting) to a one world government.

I've argued the correctness elsewhere, but it would be off topic here and I am trying to avoid that.

It's easy. One world religion of science. I bet no one on here will deny science (except me).
