While main-stream religious and common-cause leaders compromise, that does not mean that their flocks have also compromised with the politically-correct world. Their flocks will eventually have to separate into "yes" and "no" categories. [ known as the The Apostasy , or "falling away" ]
Only those who are grounded in the Word of God -- the Holy Bible -- will know the truth, and the Truth shall set them free. Those who love not the truth will be turned over to "strong delusion"
2 Thessalonians 2.

A Great Facilitator
We at Hope To The End  do NOT believe that the Pope is the antichrist-beast or the false prophet-beast of Revelation ( Book of the Apocalypse ). Nor is the ArchBishop of Canterbury, nor any high profile religious leader. However, we do believe that all of these religious leaders are great Facilitators ( agents ) for the one world religion of Universalism.
This all-inclusive one world religion ( " faith " ) will embrace the System ( see
Revelation 17 )
It is our belief that two high-profile political figures will become the antichrist and the false prophet.

This "OK Corral" Group ---
The Vatican, Maurice Strong, Mikhail Gorbachev, Carey, Swing, Moon, and others, etc.----
will be handing their followers over to Universalism. ( all inclusive )

"Any belief is OK with me,
As long as it spells UNITY ! "

3 step operation toward Universalism
1. unite all Christians
2. Unite all major belief-systems (including non-Christians)
3. include
All of humanity ( atheists, non-believers, heretics etc. )

3 step operation : switching the object of worship

1. Worship The Triune God ( Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit )
2. Mouth-worship of "God" ; ... but actually worshipping political-peace and the System (NWO new world order )--
Matthew 15:8
3. Worship the Beast and Satan ( the Dragon, Tempter, Serpent, the Devil )
Rev. 13: 4

"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come,
even
NOW are there
many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
They went out from us, but they were not of us:
for if they had been of us, they would have no doubt continued with us:
but they went out,
that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us."

1 John 2:18, 19

What is the definition of a false prophet ? Well one of the definitions is that he speaks out of both sides of his mouth...
like a lamb on one side, and as a dragon on the other side Rev. 13 : 11 ( "playing both sides of the middle" ).


There are MANY false prophets today trying to appease all , but their bottom line is a lie and a deception.
"
many false prophets are gone out into the world" 1 John 4:1

In the end, one world religion worships the antichrist beast and the dragon, Satan.

1. Attacking The BIBLE -- the foundation of Christianity

"Roman Church ( and many others) attacks foundation of Christianity, the Bible
Says it is only partially true" ( part God, part human ; must adapt to changing times ...relativism )

THE hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church has published a teaching document instructing the faithful that some parts of the Bible are not actually true. The Catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland are warning their five million worshippers, as well as any others drawn to the study of scripture, that they should not expect “total accuracy” from the Bible. Ed : How blasphemous can it get ?
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,13509-1811332,00.html

Strange:" EU Constitution is "holy text", yet it is 100 % human written "

The EU constitution is a “holy text”, the leader of the European parliament’s centre right Hans-Gert Poettering told the Pope on Thursday.
The German MEP used an audience with Pope Benedict XVI to assert the European People’s Party’s Christian and conservative credentials.
http://www.eupolitix.com/EN/News/200603/81f6b91e-55cc-4ff4-a335-103a6ca715e2.htm

Read and weep .. Pope says Bible is 50% Divine; Koran 100% divine. Read and weep.
" This basic difference, Pope Benedict continued, makes Islam unlike Christianity and Judaism. In the latter two religions, “God has worked through His creatures. And so, it is not just the word of God, it’s the word of Isaiah, not just the word of God, but the word of Mark.
He’s used His human creatures, and inspired them to speak His word to the world.” Jews and Christians “can take what’s good” in their traditions and mold it. There is, in other words, “an inner logic to the Christian Bible, which permits it and requires it to be adapted and applied to new situations.”

Whereas the Bible is, for Benedict, the “word of God that comes through a human community,” he understands the Koran as “something dropped out of Heaven, which cannot be adapted or applied.” This immutability has vast consequences: it means “Islam is stuck. It’s stuck with a text that cannot be adapted.”

Love-call to the Muslims by the Pope


Pope John Paul 2 kisses the Koran
http://www.biblestudysite.com/nwo.htm

he [ Pope Benedict 16 ] said, in the Islamic tradition, God [ Ed : since when is "Allah " God ?? Allah has no Son ] has given His word to Muhammad, but it's an eternal word. It's not Muhammad's word. It's there for eternity the way it is. There's no possibility of adapting it or interpreting it.
http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1136361101191&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull

Ed : Muhammad claims that the angel Gabriel handed down the Koran. Galatians 1 tells us that even if an angel delivers any other Gospel than that of Jesus Christ, it is a perverted Gospel and all of its messengers are to be accursed. Galations 1.

The Bible on the other hand was delivered by the Almighty and Eternal God the Father Himself (
Rev. 1:1).
The messenger of the Gospel is no less than God's only Son, Jesus (
Hebrews 1: 1, 2 ) Who being equal with God the Father ( John 10:30 ) is higher than all created angelic beings ( Hebrews 1:4 and following;
Colossians1 :12--17 .)
Furthermore, all people everywhere are warned not to alter the teachings of the Bible, in the last chapter of Revelation / Apocalypse).
To say another "Gospel" is equal with --or excels-- the Christian Gospel is to come under the curse of
Rev. 22:18, 19. ...spoken from "the beginning and the ending" of the WORD.

Sola Scriptura -- Scripture Alone is TRUTH ; The Authority of the Bible
http://www.christiananswers.net/q-eden/sola-scriptura-bible.html
Index http://www.christiananswers.net/menu-at1.html Homepage http://www.christiananswers.net/home.html
Spanish version http://www.christiananswers.net/spanish/q-eden/sola-scriptura-earlychurch-s.html

We at Hope To The End believe the Bible to be 100 % absolute truth, God-inspired. The human element has no impact on the Written Word. The Bible is understood solely by the power of the Holy Ghost
(
reason and logic, history and science are subject to this Truth, spiritually discerned ).


"ALL Scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, ( 100 % ) and is profitable for Doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." 2 Timothy 3:16

In other words, there is no other plumbline for ascertaining TRUTH.

The Truth is veiled to those who have a veil over their heart. The Truth is understood by those who submit to the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.
"Thy Word is Truth" -- John 17:17

"Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God: that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth,
but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him:
neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.."
1 Corinthians 2:11--14


"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto ANOTHER Gospel;
Which is NOT another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the Gospel of Christ.
But though we,
or an angel from heaven, preach any other Gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again,
If any man [
Ed : or Pope ] preach any other Gospel unto you than that ye have received. let him be accursed."
Galatians 1:6--9

Mohammed claims that the Koran was delivered by an angel. Even so, Galatians tells us it is a perverted Gospel.

Ed: Religious leaders are speaking both heresy and blasphemy when they undermine God's Holy Word, the Bible."For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
"Therfore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works." -- 2 Corinthians 11:13--15

The ANVIL http://hopetotheend.com/anvil.html


2. Ecumenism : UNITY through "luv" ( seeking the lowest common denominator )
causing confusion:
"God is not the author of confusion" -- 1 Corinthians 14:33

"Urbi et Orbi" ( to the city and to the world) Easter Sunday
The pontiff also prayed that leaders and international organisations would strengthen their will to "achieve peaceful co-existence among different races, cultures and religions".
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4913536.stm
Ed: A Palestinian State is an oxymoron with "peace".
Co-existence of religion is great if it means "respect" for each other ( you know, not beheading people of Christian Faith ) . But what actually takes place is a watered-down elimination of true dogma of the true Faith
found in the Bible.

Summary -- Peter Stanford
It is not so much that he has so far budged on any of the fundamental points that divide the church. Rather, Benedict has been busy giving out positive signals of his wish to be inclusive and listen to other viewpoints. So he has, for instance, held 'good-natured' talks with Swiss academic Father Hans Kung, a leading intellectual force behind liberal Catholicism and, for the Polish pope, virtually the antichrist
So his successor's apparent love of shopping has inevitably drawn criticism. Most of the fire, however, has been directed not at him but at his controversial secretary, Monsignor Georg Ganswein
http://observer.guardian.co.uk/review/story/0,,1754546,00.html

Pope wants unity among Christians, Jews, and Moslems
"the Pope said religious leaders had a responsibility to "work for reconciliation through genuine dialogue".
"Judaism, Christianity and Islam believe in the one God
... It follows, therefore, that all three monotheistic religions are called to cooperate with one another for the common good of humanity, [ Ed: humanism based upon a phony unified religion, thus NO Truth]
serving the case of justice and peace in the world," he told a visiting delegation of the American Jewish Committee

Ed: This is a VERY misleading statement .. an initial truth that concludes with a lie.
All 3 Faiths believe in one God. However, Christianity is the only Faith that believes that the oneness includes
3 Divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost
Isaiah 9:6.

Monotheism ( one god ) does not necessarily make for Divinity.
The devils believe in one God and even tremble.
James 2:19
However, they do not believe that Jesus is God, and sought to kill Him on the Cross.
A person can make Materialism their one god, but that doesn't make materialism Divine.
Allah has no Son, therefore, Allah is not God...though he is one entity--- a being in the mind of Moslems.

The Jews have the Truth in their Old Testament, but resist recognizing that Truth.
Acts 7:51
Christians have found that Truth, and proclaim it to all who have ears to hear.
The Moslems outright reject that Truth, and the Koran allows them to kill all "infidels"--those who do not believe that Allah is God.
Even the Pope cannot change the Koran.

There can be no "reconciliation" between Truth and a lie, no matter how much you sugar-coat it with "luv".
2 Corinthians 6:14--18
2 Corinthians 6:17 and 2 Timothy 3: 1--10 and Matthew 5: 44

Jesus did not call us to embrace our enemis in fellowship, but to separate from them, and to pray for them. Prayer is love, real genuine love....Prayer is the best there is ( it is not a phoney "luv")
God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you" ! 1 Samuel 13:23

Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger of Israel calls for unity too
Assembly of Jews and Moslems
Rabbi Metzger was addressing the International Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace in Seville, Spain.
He called for the formation of a "United Nations of religious groups".....
That plan has broad support from key participants like Frederico Major, the co-president of the Alliance for Civilisations, the lobby group for international conflict resolution, supported by the United Nations and initiated by Spain's Prime Minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

January 25 --Pope's Encyclical on ( all-inclusive ) "luv"
Pope Benedict XVI said Wednesday he will publish his first encyclical on the different aspects of God's love next week, adding it was "providential" the text would be released after a period of prayer for unifying all Christians
Benedict said, speaking off-the-cuff after his prepared remarks.
"I want to show that it's about one single movement with different dimensions."
http://www.forbes.com/technology/ebusiness/feeds/ap/2006/01/18/ap2458124.html

Ed: "luv" makes the one-world religion go 'round
God's love is not "unconditional" ( see "if" word in Concordance)
God's Holy-love is highly conditional; without it, one goes to hell.
Please see
 
http://hopetotheend.com/love.html
The banner of the NWO is
"Love, Unity and Peace". If we see those words, we question it.

Ed: This encyclical is to be read on a day honoring St. Paul the Apostle. It was Paul's epistle to the ROMANS ( living at Rome ) wherein God says , " Let your love be without dissimulation"
( meaning unfeigned love; no phoniness, sham ) Romans 12:9


Pope urges universal unification of all Christians
Ed
: Will the Biblical--Jesus be the sole name given for Salvation ? Acts 4: 12
Will they be surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit ?
Will we need repentance of sin, atoned for only by the Blood of Jesus Christ at Calvary ?
Will the Authorized Bible ( KJV ) be the foundation of God's Holy Word ?

" Upon ascension to the Holy See in the spring of this year, Pope Benedict XVI proclaimed universal unification of Christians as a central idea of his pontificate.
the accession of Pope Benedict XVI signifies the beginning of a new age that will hopefully help restore relations with the Russian Orthodoxy. In the face of new dangers - terrorism, AIDS, environmental pollution - the world's two largest churches are beginning to realize that they should not refrain from cooperation or abandon the idea of the reunification of Christianity."

Protestant Churches ( WARC ) want partnership with the Vatican
The leaders of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC) have called for a new era of partnership on
justice issues in their first meeting with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican on Saturday ( Jan.14)
http://www.christiantoday.com/news/church/warc.leaders.call.for.new.era.of.partnership.with.vatican./949.htm

Christian Churches Together in the USA
the broadest alliance of Christians ever formed in the United States.
The steering committee of the budding effort, tentatively called Christian Churches Together in the U.S.A., will invite a wide range of national church bodies and agencies over the next several weeks to join them.
The loosely knit alliance would represent five segments of U.S. Christianity, listed in the plan as
"Evangelical/Pentecostal, Historic Protestant, Orthodox, Racial/Ethnic and Roman Catholic."

Catholic Bishop Tod Brown of Orange, Calif., and Baltimore's Cardinal William Keeler were among the 55 participants who met at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif. Both are members of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' ecumenical committee.
"I don't think there has ever been anything like this attempted before in this country," Brown said.

One sticking point: The nation's largest Protestant denomination,
the Southern Baptist Convention, may be reluctant to join, though it had an observer at the meeting.

the National Council. The council is not sponsoring the new unity effort, though its chief executive is participating in it.
( Editor: "a rose by any other name is still a rose")

Ed-- see below. The plan is to start with the "common" and then through subtle persuasion and tactics change the moral ground. Agenda: how to become politically-correct. Unity always implies seeking the LOWEST common denominator.)

The organization would gather groups that "believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Savior according to the Scriptures" and "worship and serve One God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit." (Ed- so far, so good)
The proposal being sent to churches says that, in the early stages, the alliance will exist mostly for common worship, fellowship and dialogue on "commonalities" and "differences." Later, it would become more active in "speaking to society with a common voice, whenever possible," and sponsor forums where Christians could address specific issues.

http://www.christiantoday.com/news/life/the.way.and.the.truth.and.the.life/312.htm

Cardinal Francis Arinze says that Jesus is not the only way to Salvation
The interviewer then repeated the question, "So you can still get to heaven without accepting Jesus?" "Expressly, yes [he laughs with the audience]" (Dallas Morning
http://www.his-forever.com/potential_pope.htm

Here are some Fundamental Truths for Cardinal Arinze to ponder:
"
Thus saith the LORD,
'
Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
neither let the mighty man glory in his might,
let not the rich man glory in his riches:
But let him that glorieth glory in this,
that he understandeth and knoweth Me."
Jeremiah 9: 23, 24

I am God, and there is none else"... Isaiah 45:22; and ALL of Isaiah Chapters 43--46

Since Jesus is our
"Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace",
( as it says in Isaiah 9:6 ) then the above verse pertains to Jesus Christ..." I am God, and there is none else."

Religion and politics: strange bedfellows
Religious Summit and G8 meet at the same time
The initiative will allow representatives of religious communities to confer on important aspects of world development, and inform the G8 nations' leaders about the outcome of their discussion, he said
In other words, Metropolitan Kiril said, the leaders of the world's religious communities, to meet in Moscow, "will in fact propose initiating a serious global dialogue between political leaderships and religious communities."
"Nothing of this kind has ever happened before," he added.

Peres hopes Pope can help the Peace process
Wants Jerusalem to be an international city
"In February 2000, the Vatican and the Palestinian Authority signed an agreement calling for an internationally guaranteed [ Ed: "security"] special status for Jerusalem. The agreement stated that a special statute would protect "equality before the law of the three monotheistic religions [in Jerusalem], the proper identity and sacred character of the city, [and] freedom of access" to the city's holy sites.
During his visit in 2000, Pope John Paul II conducted a prayer service in Bethlehem, and announced that the
Vatican had always recognized the Palestinians' national rights to a homeland. Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, Dean of Yeshivat Ateret Cohanim, said in response that the Pope's goal was simply to obtain a foothold in Jerusalem for the Church, and that his visit was one way the Pope hoped to reach this goal.

"If the Catholics would at least stop supporting the establishment of a Palestinian state in our land, and stop supporting the other Arab nations around us - then this could be considered a significant step," Rabbi Aviner said."

Ed: This statement by the Pope makes of no effect the BLOOD of Jesus Christ ... Hebrews 10: 29
"of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing

 International Economic Order
Religious Summit
Human life is also interrelated with economy. International economic order, as all other spheres of global architecture, should be based on justice. All economic and business activities should be socially responsible and carried out using the ethical standards. It is this what makes the economy really efficient, that is, beneficial to the people. A life lived only for financial profit and facilitating production progress becomes barren and meager. Being aware of this, we call on the business community to be open and responsible towards the civil society, including religious communities, at the national and global levels.

 Ecology
It is imperative that all governments and the business community alike be responsible stewards of the resources of our planet. These resources, as given to all generations by the Creator, should be used for the benefit of everyone. All nations have the right to use their resources, sharing them with others, as well as to develop technologies for their effective use and preservation. The responsible distribution of the Earth’s richness, in addition to just international trade and active humanitarian involvement, will help overcome the poverty and hunger suffered by billions of our brothers and sisters.

UN wants to spread its tentacles to Churches
ASAN CITY, South Korea – At the next meeting of the General Assembly of the United Nations in September, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo of the Philippines is to present a formal proposal for the establishment of an
Inter-religious Council at the world body. It would be an institutional part of the United Nations, with status like that of the U.N.'s Economic and Social Council or the Trusteeship Council.
At her meeting with President Bush at the White House in May, Arroyo suggested the United States might want to co-sponsor the proposal. Bush, a practicing Christian with a keen sense of the power of religion, expressed deep interest and asked his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, to study the matter.
In fact, Rice already knew of the plan. Two of her aides, Karen Brooks and James Moriarty, had already been briefed on the plan by the speaker of the Philippines House of Representatives, Jose de Venecia, who has waged a campaign for such a religious infusion into the work of the United Nations.

Vatican chooses chaotic happenstance to Intelligent Design
Vatican Prefers Godless Evolution THEORY ( already proven WRONG due to thermo-dynamics )
to the Genesis- Biblical account of Almighty God's Creation of the Universe ...WOE !
The Vatican newspaper has published an article saying "intelligent design" is not science and that teaching it alongside evolutionary theory in school classrooms only creates confusion.
The author, Fiorenzo Facchini, a professor of evolutionary biology at the University of Bologna, laid out
the scientific rationale for Darwin's theory of evolution, saying that in the scientific world, biological evolution "represents the interpretative key of the history of life on Earth."
Ed: Speaking out of both sides of the mouth ...covering all bases
But he [ Facchini ] concluded: "In a vision that goes beyond the empirical horizon, we can say that we aren't men by chance or by necessity, and that the human experience has a sense and a direction signaled by a superior design."
The article echoed similar arguments by the Vatican's chief astronomer, the Rev. George Coyne, who said "intelligent design" wasn't science and had no place in school classrooms

Genesis account : "Days" 1-- 3 were not 24 hr. intervals, since there was no solar system as of yet.
1,000 years is but a day to the Lord ( aortist time ) 2 Peter 3:8

Is the Pope's true religion Secular Humanism ? . Evolution is the mantra of non-Christians, non-Believers, and atheists. This puts the Pope ( and his Vatican "experts" ) outside the camp of the Christians, who intrinsically believe in the Genesis account of Creation.

It is also obvious from the above article that the Vatican wants to be Popular, more than to be correct.
Evolution is the world's view point over revealed Truth.

Cardinal McCarrick endorses same-sex unions

Cardinal McCarrick appeared last night on Blitzer's Situation Room in support of homosexual civil unions, while insisting that the definition of marriage itself be left alone. However, as the CNN host indicated before the interview, the Cardinal's support for the possible recognition of same-sex civil unions does indeed step out of line with the Church's often-reiterated position that there can be no public recognition of homosexual civil unions in society

Dave Hunt : Today's Apostasy
Ed: SELLING OUT : Zondeveran to Harper-Collins; Robertson to Murdoch; Lalonds to Sony; Disney's Narnia replaced the crib in churches at Christmas time etc etc etc.
The Bible is being “improved” by script writers, movie directors, and actors, who are replacing the actual “incorruptible...word of God” by which we are “born again,” with dramatic representations. The entire New Testament is now on video, which may soon be the only “Bible” youth know. Who will earnestly contend?...

For 1.1 billion Roman Catholics nothing changed. They still pray to Mary for salvation and wear her scapular, which declares, “Whosoever dies wearing this scapular shall not suffer eternal fire.” What an insult to Christ! The very doctrine of indulgences that sparked the Reformation remains a mainstay of Catholicism. Mocking JDDJ, John Paul II opened four “holy doors” in Rome and offered plenary indulgences for walking through them. (Catholic pilgrims came by the millions to do so, rejecting Christ as the only door to eternal life!)

Kneeling beside the Pope in front of the first “holy door” opened was George Carey, Archbishop of Canterbury and spiritual head of the Church of England. John Stott said, “Evangelicals should join [the] Church of England in working toward full communion with the Roman Catholic Church.”

The entire Word of God is foundational to the faith. Sadly, the church and world are being robbed of the pure Word of God
by professing evangelicals

Ed: There are many good points put forth by religious leaders and other religions. Yet, if they do not take a stand
( if they are afraid of speaking out with discernment) then all religious affections are merely a tea party.


The Pope and aliens:
Recently, Monsignior Corrado Balducci, a representative of the Vatican, reportedly announced to the public on behalf of the Vatican, to the clergy, public and congregations / archdiocese, that aliens are "real".

In a worldwide message, he indicated that, informally, the Vatican had determined that extraterrestrials are not "demons" or "devils", and that they should be treated as "God's children", just like humanity. Similar announcements, of a more scientific-political orientation, had previously been issued to the public by General Leonid Alexayev, head of the Russian Federation Electronic Space Command, who chaired a decade long study of allegations that Aliens are present in our solar system. The United States government, however, has continued to publicly deny the existence of aliens, suggesting that any and all claims regarding "et's" are untrue

Laghi and the Pope
Australian author Morris West based a character on Cardinal Laghi in one of his last novels, accusing him of complicity with the criminal regime. But several Argentinian bishops defended the cardinal, saying his job was to liaise [lee-aze] with the Government and he was not compromised by doing so.
The Vatican did not apparently heed the criticism because in 1991 John Paul II made him a cardinal and put him in charge of the Vatican Congregation for Clergy, a post he held until his retirement

Misinterpreting Scripture:
Pope calls Mary the woman in Revelation 12

This year the Pope joins you in this act of devotion and love for the Most Holy Virgin, the glorious woman of the Book of Revelation, crowned with twelve stars (cf. Revelation 12:1).

THE GREAT WHORE; MYSTERY BABYLON the GREAT
THE MOTHER of HARLOTS and ABOMINATIONS of the EARTH

This is when the One World Religion
( We believe that MYSTERY Babylon is headed by a political leader, and not headed by the Pope ).
This political leader will endorse the One World Government of the antichrist and his 666
economic and commercial system..

The Harlot of Rev. 17 is a City....not a religious city, but the ultimate Political City...the Capital of the World, reigning over the kings of the earth. (The Pope has no military clout, so he is vulnerable to the kings of the earth). As best as we can see it, that Harlot city is New York City. Her commercial wheelings and dealings---backed up by politics and religion---dictate the lifestyle of the New World Order members.

New York City is home to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)...the elitist think tank behind the powers that be.
NYC + CFR ( TPTB )


The meaning of the symbols of Rev. 17, as we see it.

waters = world trade, commercialism ( Rev. 17:15 )
woman = New York City
scarlet colored beast = antichrist
7 Heads = Group of 7 Industrialized Democracies (headed by IMF and World Bank)
10 horns = EU
arrayed in purple: political correctness ( including homosexuality )
and scarlet : tyrannical; drunk with the blood of dissenters (saints)
LAMB = Jesus Christ

So then, we see Ecumenism turning into Multi-Faithism...
which turns into One World Religion.
This one world religion---headquartered in New York City will give their allegience to the antichrist.
They will all bow to the antichrist scarlet beast, who will be over all.
They will all support "just causes", propagandized and pragmatic.
Through world trade, sanctions and embargoes, they will make and break nations.
Food will become the ultimate weapon of choice against any opposition, including those who do not take the 666 mark of the beast. This is wicked, murderous commercialism.

This is MYSTERY BABYLON.

THE WHOLE WORLD LIES IN WICKEDNESS 1 John 5:19

"Come out from among them, and be ye separate", saith the Lord,
and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."
2 Corinthians 6:17

Universalism believes that all men are saved whether they have a creed or any set of beliefs or whatever. Just plain all persons. This of course is heresy. There are no standards, no consequences, no hell, nor anything. Just saved. It is founded on sand ...the fantasy of "unconditional love". No love is unconditional. We all must measure up. We all must reap consequences. We reap what we sew.

The purveyors of this heresy call it "christian" universalism and "biblical" universalism.
Well call it what they will, it is a lying-label. In reality, it is anti-christian and anti-biblical.

What is UNiversalism ?

What is the definition of a false prophet ? Well one of the definitions is that he speaks out of both sides of his mouth...
like a lamb on one side, and as a dragon on the other side Rev. 13 : 11 ( "playing both sides of the middle" ).

There are MANY false prophets today trying to appease all , but their bottom line is a lie and a deception.
"
many false prophets are gone out into the world" 1 John 4:1

" For there shall arise false christ
S, and false prophetS, and show great signs and wonders;
insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
--Matthew 24:24

Good message from John Tng:
"For truth by definition is intolerant. The devil will have you believe all religions should be tolerant towards each other, and believers of all faiths should refrain from claiming theirs is the only truth. How ingenious a lie! There is only one slight problem. What do you do with the followers of Jesus who insist that He is the Only Way, and that no one comes to the Father except through Him?

Do not be surprised these so-called pacifists will suddenly turn very intolerant of you and even label you as intolerant. These are hypocrites since by their show of intolerance they just prove that they cannot unite everyone and show tolerance to everyone.
