One World Religion?

  1. schoolgirlforreal profile image71
    schoolgirlforrealposted 5 years ago

    The reason for this forum is that I was speaking to an acquaintance and they brought up that they think people should be forced to give up faith and all agree on one idea that we consider God. Which led me to the concept of one world religion, which is something I've heard of alot.


    EDIT

      Schoolgirl forreal, the one who thinks that he must fight for his freedom is the one already enslaved.

      For in the world where.all is free , even the foolish should be free to exercise his foolishness, then and only then he will entangle himself in his web of foolishness.

      So if you want freedom for yourself, well you rest in the face of those who seeks to enslave you,

      Then and.only then.you gain your freedom... otherwise you become exactly as they are...

          you have made reference to the end time with one world government and preservation of freedom and peace...

          My point is those who strive to preserve peace in this world are the one in bondage to this world...these will not find peace.

          The end will come but not as they expect.

            Within 200 years they'll probably be no religion. At least in the US.

                  There may be that many buildings but religion?

                  Separation of Church and State? I can't help but to wonder, How is this possible? In order for a church to apply for grants, even from the private sector, they have to have what? A 501c3 status. This isn't simply a registration form.

      "We've all heard for centuries that someday there would be a one world religion, novus ordo, "

      I have never heard this once in my life, until now. I have watched tons of conspiracy videos all over the internet on secret societies, freemasonry, whatever. Nothing mentions Novus Ordo. Atleast not in a way that would have impacted my me to remember it at all.
      ---------------------------------
      "from even the bible written hundreds of years ago, in the Book of Revelation, that one day the world leaders would force people to believe in a one world belief.  Is this freedom? No. Our Constitution is built on freedom of speech for one."

      - The bible was written thousands of years ago, not hundreds.
      - The book of revelation makes no sense, have you actually tried to read it? I have. Even geniuses who study it for years and years agree it makes no sense in every documentary i have ever watched, and i watch a lot of documentaries.
      - World leaders cannot force you to do anything, you are in control of your own actions.
      - Forcing people to believe something in no way involves freedom of speech. in fact its not even possible. If it was possible don't you think we would have an amendment regarding freedom of thought??? You don't think anyone thought of this possibility before you just brought this up here without thinking?
      -----------
      "What hell on earth that day will be! Because lack of freedom = hell. That's why our soldiers fight and risk/lose thier lives."

      Fear monger much?
      -----------------------
      "How do you feel?"

      About what?? About this post? I feel sad for you that you buy into garbage about THE END OF THE WORLD IS COMING RUN FOR THE MOOOOOON!
      ------------------------------
      "Do you think that the leaders of the world should one day decide what we should think?"

      This is completely impossible, unless the government turned us into cyborgs. In that case I don't think we would even be conscious of the knowledge that we are even thinking.
      ----------------------
      "Anyways..... You can't make someone think anything. You can't force anyone rather, to give up their God. Whatever that God may be. It won't happen. Not without force."

      Seems like you are totally contradicting everything you just said here, everything that I spent so much time responding to. What exactly was the purpose of you posting here? You are not here to gain knowledge so why are you here?

      Time to graduate schoolgirl, try not to get left behind. You have 1 year and about 2 days left.

      One religion ruling the world is as terrible as single country like united states ruling all the continents. The trouble with any mindset ruling the world, it opposes any criticism that affects directly to the ruling mindset. Be it religious or non-religious, it doesn't matter. You suppress creativity, innovation and many other stuff that comes from variety of religions and non-religious people. Some people are good to remain deluded all their life, that way many corporations and political parties survive. There is a balance diverse opinion, not with single mindset.

      The non-belief in any gods has risen from 8% to 14% of the worlds population over the last 20 years, taking into account rates of population growth averages.

      If linear and all things remain relatively equal, we should see the non-belief in gods overtaking the world in less than 300 years or as little as 4-5 generations.

      If however, we see this increase follow the same nonlinear timeline we are experiencing in changing technologies and the advent of being able to access most all knowledge in the world almost instantaneously, that may happen much sooner.

      This isn't the future, this is today. Can we not already pick up a smartphone, ask it a question and it gives us an answer based on accessing that world wide knowledge? Will not our children's children grow up with this kind of technology, having the ability and capacity to question everything, but instead get real answers to real questions, instantaneously? Will not their children's children grow up having the capacity of knowledge and critical thinking skills of today's leading scientists when they but turn teenagers? What kinds of medical breakthroughs and energy efficient systems will they create? How will they change the world with all that knowledge and information at their fingertips?

      The whole idea of little Billy asking his dad, "Why is the sky blue?" will become a joke with an altogether different punch line.

      Islam is that world religion; it promotes peace, good morals and everything needed for the spiritual uplift of human beings; with brilliant reasons and arguments:

      [5:4]……

      This day have those who disbelieve despaired of harming your religion. So fear them not, but fear Me. This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour upon you and have chosen for you Islam as religion. But whoso is forced by hunger, without being wilfully inclined to sin, then, surely, Allah is Most Forgiving, Merciful.

              Many Muslims do not follow Allah, like terrorists who kill,  many Christians do not follow God or Jehovah, like the ones who kill the unborn.  Many Jewish people do not follow Yahweh like the ones who are sending bombs into Palistine.  No one follows their God perfectly.  Everybody sins.  By the way, don't Muslims want to kill everyone on the earth who does not become a Muslim?

                This isn't a surprise.
                No one follows their G/god. They just claim to do so, yet their actions say otherwise.
                A religious term that only applies to religious individuals.
                And, how does your post(the entire thing) have anything to do with one world religion? It doesn't.

                  No,  I was trying to reply to Paarsurry when he was telling us that Islam was perfect.   As my post mentions three religions, it does apply to one world religion, by stating, there is not one world religion. 

                  Why did you say my statement was naive when you said the same thing?
                  I said, " No one follows their God perfectly", you said "No one follows theirG/god.

                  We both stated actions are not what their religions tell them to do.

                  As to a world religion have you never heard of Muslim Terrorists commiting the things they do, because they feel everyone on earth should become a Muslim, and those who do not become Muslims, will die?

                  If you do not believe what I have written about google something like " what will happen if you do not become a Muslim"

                    Paarsurrey doesn't nor have I seen him make the claim that it was the perfect religion. He constantly claims that it's the only truthful religion.
                    You said perfectly, which implies they follow as best a human being could possibly and that's naive. I stated that they do not follow their G/god, which implies they don't do it at all. Big difference.
                    Yes, I know about it and it's quite irrelevant simply because they will die out eventually.
                    And, like I said, eventually these types of people will die out.

    You say, a wise saying I heard, is "by their fruits you shall know them" -funny how all the wise sayings come from the bible eh?-and fruits means actions.

    Another thing I heard is, Not everyone is an Einstien. Not everyone thinks geniously.

    a) intelligence

    b) less intelligent

    OR-------

    even better
    c) intelligence mixed with LOVE.

    Love............what is true love? Does love force itlself on others? Can someone TRULY Love You--------if you force them? OR, if you give them a choice?

    LOVE- is not part of the thought process. No, love is an emotion. So if you try and control and get rid of emotion, like communism? where is love? joy? happiness? I hear the communist people were oppressed. let me check my facts, correct me if I'm wrong. but they were not happy, or joyful? Hmmmmmm what about the people Hitler ruled? Were they happy? Or robots? Or killed? You know they say History repeats itself. One may have good intentions or think they do, but in fact it may be their brain that is the warped one.

          Schoolgirlforreal, one thing I have seen about Cagsil, is that he insults everyone.  Calls them stupid, tells them they know nothing.  He however, does not state any facts, or history.  Why is that?   I tried to reason with him also,  it was a mistake.

            A bad perception on your part, but not surprising.
            If I called someone stupid, then I would have been banned from the forums, just like anyone else would. Apparently, that isn't the case, so stop trying to insinuate something which isn't happening.
            What you cannot recognize rationality? It's actually higher grade than most facts and more reliable than any written history.
            Reason with me? Present a rational sentence, then maybe you would see the difference between reason and nonsense.

      "LOVE- is not part of the thought process. No, love is an emotion. So if you try and control and get rid of emotion, like communism? where is love? joy? happiness? I hear the communist people were oppressed. let me check my facts, correct me if I'm wrong. but they were not happy, or joyful? Hmmmmmm what about the people Hitler ruled? Were they happy? Or robots? Or killed? You know they say History repeats itself. One may have good intentions or think they do, but in fact it may be their brain that is the warped one."

    It is in the works for everyone to worship some earth goddess. I can't remember her name. The whole "Going Green" is the beginning of it. They are making people believe that the earth needs "saving" when in all reality, we need the saving. God made the earth and it can withstand anything man can throw at it. Not to mention the climent changes are bs. Its been hotter then this in the past. The earth has to go through fluctuations to make up for the constant change/move of nature and animals. People would rather play follow the leader then think for themselves.

    Anyways, Its going to happen. When? I can not say, but we will be forced into a "religion" that we either agree with or hate. I will probably be killed or put in a fema camp because I only worship God (The creator of us and the the earth).

    I myself do not have a religion. I believe in God and love Him. I believe a man named Jesus Christ was sent here by God to show us how He wants us to live in order to save us from our own destruction. Jesus showed us to live a life of love, not fear. Fear being lack of faith. If this makes me a Christian, so be it, but I don't need a name to state what I believe in. Most Christians don't even act or follow a true Christian lifestyle anyways. Their so judgmental. I heard of Christian churches kicking out gay people! How cruel! Yes, its a sin but no sin is greater then the other in God's eyes. Everyone sins weather in action or thought so they may as well kick everyone out. I don't go to church for many reasons, that being one.

    I don't think its right to judge anyone for anything. I do it from time to time and I feel awful afterwords. Thank God.. (Literally!) He's forgiving.

      There will be a one world religion at some point in time.  Many will be surprised when it does happen because of where it starts.  Already for many years we have seen and read about interfaith gatherings.  These days we read and hear about the prosperity gospel, which is not the gospel of Christ but the gospel of greed.

      Many leaders in the Church have fallen victim to this gospel.  Big name evangelists have taken up the cause.  There are few left who preach the truth, but God has always kept a remnant for Himself.

      It is easy to mock those who believe.  It is easy to ridicule that which we do not understand. 

      Some have spoken of judging in this thread and have mentioned the fact that they do not like judging but yet God, in order to be a just God, will judge all mankind.

      The book of Revelation is misunderstood.  It is written as a revelation of Jesus Christ, hence the book title "Revelation."  Many see things only in the natural but not in the spiritual.  The battles that will take place are spiritual battles though the spiritual affects the natural.

          So in your words, unless I am mistaken, humans are trapped or bound by what they think of for themselves and this is the only way that man has progressed. 

          Now keep this in mind.  Anytime you are trapped or bound by anything, you are a prisoner of that which binds you.  As I stated earlier, it is easy to mock and ridicule what you don't understand, (this includes me also). 

          One of the biggest problems I have with some who post here is they think they understand when they really have no clue.  Their distrust helps to define what they believe to be true or not.  It is their own minds that keep them from the truth when the truth is presented to them and they refuse it.

          The book of Revelation is Bible written by the same man who wrote the book of John.

                IMO I think being spiritual is more important than religious because to me it seems religious people follow a religion- and many of them are hypocrites. But being spiritual to me, is to have your own sense of God in your life whereby you use and interpet what you need to about God to help you grow as an individual. smile My belief draws me to community, to attending a gathering/church service , currently it's a bible church- evangelical where the preacher tries to inspire us- but my daily life consists mostly, I try to do this daily, of reading the bible, praying in my own words, and concentrating on doing what I believe is morally right.

      I don't think it would be possible to convert everyone to the same beliefs.  People will always have different ideas, and it is best to allow people to agree to disagree, without trying to make them believe in the same thing.  If however, in centuries to come, due to multiculturalism, where all beliefs become mixed together, it would be excellent, if the good parts of all religions are merged, whilst the bad parts are forgotten.  It would also be necessary to include science in any understanding of a spiritual dimension.  And as science is changing all the time, this might develop to include a spirituality, based on scientific understanding.
