Is Pope Francis Laying The Groundwork For A One World Religion?

The title of an ‘IntelliHub’ post, an article by Michael Snyder, End of The American Dream.  “Does Pope Francis intend to help the global elite achieve their goal of uniting all of the religions of the world under a single banner?

Religion has been on my topic list since the inception of this blog and has remained dormant for a few reasons. My knowledge and experience in this area is limited and I needed to be brave to risk making a fool of myself. This time has come.

Much has been offered on this blog about the very soundly based claims of the serious agenda and emerging evidence of a “New World Order” becoming a reality. In my mind there are real and formidable barriers to the implementation of a working world government.

One of these being the inherent political differences between, on the one hand the “West” encompassing the US, its allies [just occurred to me that could aptly be mis-spelt “all lies” 🙂 ], and the EU and, on the other, almost the rest of the world. The latter in loose terms, comprising mainly Russia, China, India, South America and the Middle East.

The BRICS group (Brazil, Russia India and China), are showing effective opposition and yet there are traces of ambiguity regarding Russia.

The ME is under serious attack with some real success (from the NWO point of view) but so far effective opposition from Syria (limited) and Iran (with a little bit of help from their friends). Korea is a thorn in the NWO side and is being very poorly tackled currently.

A very, very rough picture of the political scene. The other main barrier to an “effective” NWO is of course, religion – Islam “vs” ‘non’Islam’. When I saw the above headline it created in me an “ahaa” reaction.

The Christian religion is so disjointed and fragmented, (one of my reasons for wondering what possible influence God has on these factions), only the Catholic Church has serious adherence and substantial following.

Of course there is the Jewish faction, a huge enigma. But with their Zionist component firmly entrenched in the anti-Islamic war and Middle East turmoil, their positioning seems clear.

That completes my very simplified overview and naive comprehension of a major issue. So we learn here of a possible working scheme that would, if implemented, save much blood-shed and tears. Just about an impossible hope, but given most alternatives, worth a serious look. Not that I am in any way wanting a NWO. Not at least, the type that is being laid out on the drawing board. But it might eliminate or reduce what I had previously considered to be a firm barrier.

A dilemma for me, happy if the barrier prevents an effective world government, but if it becomes inevitable anyway, happy to see one major humanitarian disaster (Christian/Islam full out war) avoided. All good discussion and theory.

Will he be instrumental in establishing a single global religion for the glorious “new age” that the global elite believe is coming?  After he was elected, the cover of Time Magazine declared Pope Francis to be the “New World Pope“, and since his election Pope Francis has made it abundantly clear that he is going to make ecumenical outreach a top priority.

He has spoken of his “determination to continue on the path of ecumenical dialogue“, and he has already held a number of very high profile ecumenical meetings.  Not only has he worked hard to reach out to leaders from various Christian traditions, he has also made it a point to try to acknowledge the mutual bonds that he feels with all other religions.

For example, in one recent address he made it a point to say that he believes that Muslims worship and pray to the “one God” that he also worships.  This “all roads lead to the same God” philosophy is a hallmark of the one world religion that the global elite have been slowly building toward for decades.  The global elite know that even with a one world economy and a one world government, humanity will never be truly united until there is a single global religion.

Unfortunately, this one world religion that they are seeking to establish is diametrically opposed to the Christianity that we find in the Bible.  By throwing out Biblical truth for the sake of “friendship between men and women of different religious traditions“, is Pope Francis fundamentally betraying the faith that he claims to represent?

If there is going to be a one world religion, there will have to be a bond formed between Roman Catholicism and Islam.  They are the two largest religious traditions on the planet, and so any truly “global religion” would definitely require the participation of both of them.

That is one reason why what Pope Francis has already had to say about Islam is so noteworthy.  The following comes from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting

“I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.

The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.”

But are “Allah” and the God of the Bible the same thing?

Of course not.  For example, Christians believe that Jesus Christ is God.  Muslims deny this vehemently.  For much more on why “Allah” and the God of the Bible are not the same, please see this article.

Here I leave the article proper and  link the complete post here.

At this point I am compelled to comment on the above  “Christians believe that Jesus Christ is God”.  Again naively I contribute a little of what I recall of the Bible – “I go to my Father to sit at his side and prepare a space for you” (roughly). To the best of my knowledge Jesus never claimed to be “God”. In quickly reading the link this article., I am not swayed by the arguments about the Holy Trinity being “the God”, they are in my opinion just another example of the human distortions and interpretations placed in translations in creating the versions of the Bible.

In any case, some Christians do and some don’t! (say that Jesus is God). whichever way, the statement is incorrect. In many ways the Islamic beliefs have sound foundations and are not to be taken as “gospel” when associated with extremist behaviour. Remember the extremist behaviour in the past history of the Christian religion?

  1. Matthew 11:27 English Standard Version (ESV)
    27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
    We are mortal bodies Ken….. God is pure Spirit. I believe that Jesus, Son of God was present at the dawn… at creation, as was The Spirit of God which hovered over the waters…… God, three persons One God Head. We tend to think (naturally) in mortal ways, thoughts, language….. God is more than this (understatement).

    As for the one world religion… it has been fortold that there will be huge apostacy in future time…..
    Joshua 24:15 As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.

    Will it be Pope Francis? I do not have the prophetic gifts so cannot tell you yeh or nay…… I just believe there will be a huge push to a one world unification, one world control… Maranatha

    John 10:30

    • A confusion of communication. I knew I was in for a torrid time here, should have known better.
      “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins (I John 4:9-10).”
      Surely we are arguing about something not any one us KNOWS. We are interpreting other men’s words. There is no way of KNOWING.
      Neither is there any need for us, or the Pope for that matter, to bandy words about this particular definition.
      Let’s all be friends and agree that there is a God and that we would like him/her to help us out of this obscene human mess into which we have got ourselves.
      If however, if it is deemed necessary to quibble, how does one reconcile the idea of God, as distinct from a man, being crucified and resurrected because that would have no significance in terms of a sacrifice.
      No, we do not need to go there. All this is just playing with WORDS. “Son of God”, “part of God”, representative/agent of God”, “Messenger of God”, why argue about the terminology?

      As Christians, we are implored to get on with our fellow men, and we cannot get past first base because it seems it is necessary to argue about semantics. Let’s get with the spirit of religion. At least until we move on to join the spirit world, then we might actually get to understand what we can only guess at the moment.

    All people have a religious nature. We are born with it. There are some who deny the existence of gods, they become almost religious in their denial. Life may well be a dream? A dream wherein we can know the existence of god. Energy cannot be destroyed, it can can only change, from one sort to another. The name given to the creator of that energy, really cannot be spoken. It is a vibration. We give this vibration various names in an attempt to communicate. OM, likely comes very close. The sound is Vedic in origin

    If we examine the names given to god by humans. Like Allah, Yahweh, Buddha, etc They are very similar guttural sounds. Even Jesus comes across as 2 syllable sounds. Very breathy.

    The notion that this jesuit is about to try for a one-world religion? Well, that has been the goal of catholics since Constantine. What is more likely now that the jesuits have both the white and black popes. Is they will seek to re-establish their income from their faithful. An income that has been in decline since the pedophile scandals emerged. It looks to me, like the start of a whitewash within their ranks? Between the jesuits and dominicans, they gave us the pogroms of torture in late middle ages. Read below the jesuit oaths and you will see little has changed from the sect within the catholic church, responsible for handling money. … the bankers. Oh and the educators. Gives me the creeps!

    The Extreme Oath of the Jesuits:

    “1, _ now, in the presence of Almighty God, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed Michael the Archangel, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the holy Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul and all the saints and sacred hosts of heaven, and to you, my ghostly father, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola in the Pontificate of Paul the Third, and continued to the present, do by the womb of the virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear, that his holiness the Pope is Christ’s Vice-regent and is the true and only head of the Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by virtue of the keys of binding and loosing, given to his Holiness by my Savior, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical kings, princes, states, commonwealths and governments, all being illegal without his sacred confirmation and that they may safely be destroyed. Therefore, to the utmost of my power I shall and will defend this doctrine of his Holiness’ right and custom against all usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever, especially the Lutheran of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and the now pretended authority and churches of England and Scotland, and branches of the same now established in Ireland and on the Continent of America and elsewhere; and all adherents in regard that they be usurped and heretical, opposing the sacred Mother Church of Rome. I do now renounce and disown any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince or state named Protestants or Liberals, or obedience to any of the laws, magistrates or officers.

    I do further declare that the doctrine of the churches of England and Scotland, of the Calvinists, Huguenots and others of the name Protestants or Liberals to be damnable and they themselves damned who will not forsake the same.

    I do further declare, that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of his Holiness’ agents in any place wherever I shall be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Ireland or America, or in any other Kingdom or territory I shall come to, and do my uttermost to extirpate the heretical Protestants or Liberals’ doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, regal or otherwise.

    I do further promise and declare, that notwithstanding I am dispensed with, to assume my religion heretical, for the propaganda of the Mother Church’s interest, to keep secret and private all her agents’ counsels from time to time, as they may entrust me and not to divulge, directly or indirectly, by word, writing or circumstance whatever; but to execute all that shall be proposed, given in charge or discovered unto me, by you, my ghostly father, or any of this sacred covenant.

    I do further promise and declare, that I will have no opinion or will of my own, or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the Militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ.

    That I may go to any part of the world withersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions of the North, the burning sands of the desert of Africa, or the jungles of India, to the centers of civilization of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America, without murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things whatsoever communicated to me.

    I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants’ heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.

    In confirmation of which, I hereby dedicate my life, my soul and all my corporal powers, and with this dagger which I now receive, I will subscribe my name written in my own blood, in testimony thereof; and should I prove false or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the Militia of the Pope cut off my hands and my feet, and my throat from ear to ear, my belly opened and sulphur burned therein, with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth and my soul be tortured by demons in an eternal hell forever!

    All of which, I, _, do swear by the Blessed Trinity and blessed Sacraments, which I am now to receive, to perform and on my part to keep inviolable; and do call all the heavenly and glorious host of heaven to witness the blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist, and witness the same further with my name written and with the point of this dagger dipped in my own blood and sealed in the face of this holy covenant.”

    (He receives the wafer from the Superior and writes his name with the point of his dagger dipped in his own blood taken from over his heart.)

    Superior speaks:

    “You will now rise to your feet and I will instruct you in the Catechism necessary to make yourself known to any member of the Society of Jesus belonging to this rank.

    In the first place, you, as a Brother Jesuit, will with another mutually make the ordinary sign of the cross as any ordinary Roman Catholic would; then one cross his wrists, the palms of his hands open, and the other in answer crosses his feet, one above the other; the first points with forefinger of the right hand to the center of the palm of the left, the other with the forefinger of the left hand points to the center of the palm of the right; the first then with his right hand makes a circle around his head, touching it; the other then with the forefinger of his left hand touches the left side of his body just below his heart; the first then with his right hand draws it across the throat of the other, and the latter then with a dagger down the stomach and abdomen of the first. The first then says Iustum; and the other answers Necar; the first Reges. The other answers Impious.” (The meaning of which has already been explained.) “The first will then present a small piece of paper folded in a peculiar manner, four times, which the other will cut longitudinally and on opening the name Jesu will be found written upon the head and arms of a cross three times. You will then give and receive with him the following questions and answers:

    Question —From whither do you come? Answer — The Holy faith.

    Q. —Whom do you serve?

    A. —The Holy Father at Rome, the Pope, and the Roman Catholic Church Universal throughout the world.

    Q. —Who commands you?

    A. —The Successor of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus or the Soldiers of Jesus Christ.

    Q. —Who received you? A. —A venerable man in white hair.

    Q. —How?

    A. —With a naked dagger, I kneeling upon the cross beneath the banners of the Pope and of our sacred order.

    Q. —Did you take an oath?

    A. —I did, to destroy heretics and their governments and rulers, and to spare neither age, sex nor condition. To be as a corpse without any opinion or will of my own, but to implicitly obey my Superiors in all things without hesitation of murmuring.

    Q. —Will you do that? A. —I will.

    Q. —How do you travel? A. —In the bark of Peter the fisherman.

    Q. —Whither do you travel? A. —To the four quarters of the globe.

    Q. —For what purpose?

    A. —To obey the orders of my general and Superiors and execute the will of the Pope and faithfully fulfill the conditions of my oaths.

    Q. —Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated.”

  4. I think Pope Francis’s direction is more towards harmony and coexistence instead of dialogue. While one world religion is ideal, there are complexities involved in such a concept. For one, even inside the Catholic Church, there is difference on opinion between traditionalist and liberal stance. Not to mention the doctrinal conflicts and resolutions which the Church underwent in resolving heresies and proclaiming doctrine. Mary as Mother of God (Theotokos) is perhaps the most dramatic example. During the Council of Ephesus in the fifth or sixth century, the Doctrine proclaiming Mary as Mother of God was passed (yes, just like in congress!) by a slim majority win after voting. Imagine the Church nowadays if the voting outcome had been different! If there will be a world religion, great effort is needed to harmonize the differences and determining points where everyone can agree and to gain consensus on those things not everyone can accept. Hence, what is more possible is the assurance of dialogue and respect, and agreeing to allow coexistence despite differences in belief. This way if majority of religions agree to be in harmony, extremes and deviances can easily be confronted for the benefit of the common good. Realizing that Pope Francis is still, Catholic, I would like to believe this will be his direction. He won’t make compromises, but he will make sure he is a friend to everyone and that he encourages each and every Catholic to do the same!

    • Erratum: I think Pope Francis’s direction is more towards harmony, coexistence AND dialogue instead of having a universal religion. (Something did not sound right, so there.) 🙂

  5. Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 10:27-30.
    Jesus said: «My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
    I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand.
    My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.”

    IF THE Father and HE are ONE……. they are God

    The people of the Islamic faith deny the Godhead, deny Jesus Christ is GOD and that is a HUGE stumbling block to unification. Even the Pope cannot bridge that gap sadly.

    You did nothing wrong in writing about this Ken…. until there is open communication there can never be a way forward.

  6. omanuel says:

    Ken, I am personally convinced the same reality, truth, handiwork of God is revealed by rigorously honest –

    1. Science: Experimentation, observation, measurements, contemplation, reasoning, logic
    2. Spirituality: Meditation, contemplation, prayer, worship, humility

    But images of God are incomplete and frequently misleading.
