One World Religion

"The world is against us, the popular churches are against us, the laws of the land will soon be against us. God has committed to us the special truths for this time to make known to the world." - Testimonies, vol. 5, p 236.

In 1959, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund Special Studies Project published The Mid-Century Challenge to U.S. Foreign Policy, which foretold: “We cannot escape, and indeed should welcome, the task which history has imposed on us. This is the task of helping to shape a new world order in all its dimensions—spiritual, economic, political, social.”

Note that the first dimension listed is “spiritual,” and evidence that this effort continued in the future can be found in Sen. Barry Goldwater’s With No Apologies, in which he explained regarding David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission (founded in 1973): “In my view the Trilateral Commission represents a skillful coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power—political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical.” Note that he says that they plan to “seize control” of ecclesiastical power!     Source

Four years before the founding of the Trilateral Commission, Arnold Toynbee's EXPERIENCES (1969) was published. Toynbee was a member of Cecil Rhodes' Association of Helpers, who in June 1931 had written that "We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world." And in EXPERIENCES, he forecasted: "I believe that in the twenty-first century human life is going to be a unity in all its aspects and activities. I believe that, in the field of religion, sectarianism is going to be subordinated to ecumenicalism, that in the field of politics, nationalism is going to be subordinated to world government...."   Source

Religion would play an important role in this campaign to alter American opinion in favor of world government. The CHRISTIAN CENTURY (April 16, 1947) expressed concern that the U.N. "cannot hope to survive on any lesser terms than as an actual world government." And in this same magazine's January 14, 1948 issue, the editors opined: "We believe that the crisis of humanity demands that the churches...shall once again declare their faith in a world government...and shall throw themselves with all the resources they can command into the crusade to set up such a government."   Source

On March 26, 1966, Pope Paul VI wrote POPULORUM PROGRESSIO calling for "a new juridical order" and stating: "Who can fail to see the need and importance of thus gradually coming to the establishment of a world authority capable of taking effective action on the juridical and political planes?...Delegates to organizations, public officials, gentlemen of the press, teachers and educators---all of you must realize that you have your part to play in the construction of a new world order."  Source
