Honestly this post is pretty much meaningless....Religion and Politics at best should be kept seperate, and this is what most of the Free Countries (well relatively free anyway) believe...not to mention this is what most of the believers in their own particular faiths believe.

You'll find Buddhists, and Christians, and Muslims, (etc.) that are individually for, or against a One World Government. Also I'd venture a guess that most Buddhist teachings simply would offer little concern one way or another if you are looking at it solely from the teachings of the Buddha....having no strong opinion or teaching on the subject is far different than being for, or against something.

Political beliefs are not the same as individual religious beliefs that involve enlightenment and/or getting into some Afterlife. To suggest otherwise, I think, fails to grasp the concept behind most Religions.

from my studies of Buddhism, i would say it does support a one world, or new world order in a loose sense.

Buddhism teaches we are all one, we are all connected to spirit, we are all god, with infinite potential. we are compassionate to others because they are no different than you, they have the desire to be free from suffering like you. if everyone was a practicing Buddhist, there would be less suffering because we would give of ourselves to help others.

we would not need government, because we would always know how to act, i.e. with others best interests at heart. we would still be unified as one.

Islam keeps its followers line and the governments of the West are bringing in Mulsim immigrants from the Middle East anyway.Britain and Germany will become Islamic states in 20-30 years anyway so i'm guessing Islam is the one world religion of the future.

Christianity supports a one world government because Christians believe God created the universe, so the world order is already in place, which gives Christian government justification of performing "God's work" which is really just the work of the state.

Christianity does not support a one world government. God/Christ are beyond materialistic existence. Governments are useless to God. Kingdom of God has no boundaries, governments, nor physical form. Outside of the function of the trinity, there are no hierarchies and organizations. Its God/Christ/Holy Spirit and then everyone else. Nothing more.

Second, Christianity is a faith; thus, it is not a religious sect (or organization).

Jesus Christ was against establishment.

Catholicism is a "religious sect", which tries to control Christianity.
Protestant is a "religious sect", which tries to control Christianity.
Born Again Christians (Protestant) are a "religious sect", which tries to control Christianity.
Mormons are a "religious sect", which tries to control Christianity.
Lutherism is a "religious sect", which tries to control Christianity.
Jehovah's Witness are a "religious sect", which tries to control Christianity.

All "religious sects" try to form a one world government.

Separation of Church and State FTW.

Any religion is meant to appeal to the masses. This has absolutely no correlation with a political government defined by today's standards.

There is a type of Christian socialism, based on a misunderstanding of Paul's letter to the Corinthians, and the spirit of good will in helping our brothers. It should never extend into a Nanny State of govt. There is a difference between privately giving to your brothers and sisters out of real charity, and the govt taking your money arbitrarily and giving it away to whatever cause it deems. Do not forget that even while Paul admonishes us to be our brother's keeper, he also says "Every man shall bear his own burden". That is a clear statement. Christians usually do not support One World Govt. As much as I disagree with some of the televangelists on doctrine, many of them do rail against the NWO.

The Watchtower may be an exception...they are very controlling from what I understand.

Buddhists may not believe in a Universal God but they still believe that Gautama and other Buddhas live in higher realms. They are too peaceful to become dictatorial. However, Shaolin monks are well-trained in martial arts for self-defense. Try reading the Bodhisattva Warrior.

Some of the Quran reads like the bible. You don't want to know what I think of Sharia Law. There seems to be an element of authoritarianism. The revolutions going on now may be some sort socialist version of Sharia. I am waiting to see if women take their rights and throw off the veils and stop hiding their light under a bushel. But even then it would probably be done under the aegis of "democracy" which is code for Socialism.

Christianity was the only "religion" (you used the term, not I) that warned of the end-times global cabal that would arise. John warned about this in Revelation and Christians since have been on the lookout for the final beast government, a 10 nation/region coalition that would encompass the entire globe.


Yeah, but don't Christians anxiously await the second coming of Christ? So if a one-world government is a sign of the end times like it says it Revelation, than wouldn't that mean Christianity, if even indirectly, supports the formation of a one-world government?

You've posted other obscene topics before. I believe your VERY intelligent, but you have some facts messed up. You claimed you were a Buddhist right? You'd know Buddhism doesn't seek for others to reach nirvana, others seek Buddhism for nirvana.

First of all 90% of the Denominational churches are "Amillinialist" in their Eschatological leanings, meaning they don't believe in a literal return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign from Jerusalem. Secondly, I can't recall ever reading or hearing a Christian say they are looking forward to the Antichrist/Beast Empire, that's plain absurd.

You're grasping at straws.

Islam isn't the NWO, it just WANTS an NWO, and Islam wants to determine the "order", or rather "Allah".

It's quite remarkable to see: immigrants arriving in your country where they have the freedom to say what they like about the West, but the very thing they protest is the reason they are allowed the freedom to protest in the first place. (FREEDOM OF SPEECH, FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION!)

They don't like democracy because they claim "one rule today, another tommorow" - They'd prefer Sharia Law, absolutism.
