Quip of the Week: Parliament of World’s Religions: Birds of a Feather . . .
Facilitators in the Parliament of World’s Religions are working at break-neck speed to inaugurate the New World Order. After more than 22 years, it will again be held in America this year from 15 to 19 October in Salt Lake City.The most tragic reality is that many so-called Christians are being sucked into this maelstrom of apostasy, allowing them to be useful idiots in the hands of the globalists.
Wikipedia defines the phrase “useful idiots” as follows,
“In political jargon, useful idiot is a term for people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause. Despite often being attributed to Vladimir Lenin, in 1987, Grant Harris, senior reference librarian at the Library of Congress, declared that ‘We have not been able to identify this phrase among [Lenin’s] published works.’”
Birds of a Feather flock together
The phrase is very useful to identify “Birds of feather . . .” who love to flock together. Here is an example of how these birds huddle together in the same rotten egg infested nest.
Dr. Arun Gandhi, Grandson of Mohandas Gandhi and Parliament Trustee, recalling the vision of his grandfather said, “’A friendly study,’ Gandhi believed,’ of all the scriptures is the sacred duty of every individual.’ He made the friendly study and found that none of the religions of the world had the whole Truth.
The Truth can only be realized when one has an open mind and a willingness to learn from all different religions the bits of Truth they have. This essentially is what the Parliament is encouraging on a mass scale.” [Thomas says: Who decides which bits of truth from every religion is indeed truth? In Biblical Christianity it is easy to define Truth. Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God said: I AM THE TRUTH.]
Mohandas Gandhi also said,
“I believe in the fundamental Truth of all great religions of the world. And I believe that if only we could, all of us, read the scriptures of the different Faiths from the stand-point of the followers of those faiths, we should find that they were at the bottom, all one and were all helpful to one another.”
According to Gandhi:
The soul of religions is one, but it is encased in a multitude of forms. The latter will endure to the end of time. Wise men will ignore the outward crust and see the same soul living under a variety of crusts… Truth is the exclusive property of no single scripture. (Emphasis added throughout).
The above quote mirrors the goals of the “universal brotherhood,” expressed by H. P. Blavatsky, an avowed Luciferian and the leading figure of the nineteenth century Occult Revival, and the “godmother” of the New Age movement, which aspires to create a one-world religion based on the teachings of Freemasonry. (Thomas says: Please make a mental note of this, Graham Power.] Please read here to see the connection between the Parliament of the World’s Religions, Theosophy and Freemasonry.
In addition to Vivekananda, the Parliament of the World’s Religions was dominated by the Theosophists and their counterparts among the representatives of neo-Vedanta and Buddhist Modernism. According to K. Paul Johnson, the Parliament gave Theosophists “a breakthrough into public acceptance and awareness which had hardly seemed possible a few years before.”
Colonel Olcott shared his sentiments in Old Diary Leaves, “How great a success it was for us and how powerfully it stimulated public interest in our views will be recollected by all our older members.” Several of the World Parliament’s speakers on behalf of international religions had been Theosopphists, such as Dharmapala and Kinza Hirai, who represented Buddhism, Mohammed Webb for Islam, and Chakravarti for the Hindus.
In his 1921 history of the Theosophical movement, René Guénon wrote that after the 1893 Parliament, “the Theosophists seemed very satisfied with the excellent occasion for propaganda afforded them in Chicago, and they even went so far as to proclaim that “the true Parliament of Religions had been, in fact, the Theosophical Congress.” (Please read the entire article here].
You must listen to other religions
Stephan Joubert of ekerk (echurch) says,
“He (Rob Bell) says you must engage the culture. I must listen to the Buddhists. You must hear what those guys have to say. Then Christians are shocked because they do not hear clearly what Rob Bell says. He does not say, become like them; he says, read their stuff, find out why they are so important. They too might have truth. Truth is not only in Christianity. Truth can be found in Judaism. You can find truth in atheism. You can find truth in whosoever. God’s general revelation is a little wider, but you say Jesus is Lord.
[Thomas says: Note carefully, Stephan Joubert deliberately ignores Jesus Christ’s statement that He is the Truth, the Way and the Life and instead says that all you have to do to prove that you are a Christian is to acknowledge that Jesus is Lord.]
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob says,
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:22-23).
Stephan Joubert doesn’t like it when anyone rebukes him for the things he said in the past which are not in accordance with God’s Word. In an article he wrote on 10 February 2014 “How to Identify Religious – and Other Street Fighters” he calls them “suspicion castors,” “atheists,” “street fighters,” and “unrefined brutes” who use the psychological strategy called “thin slicing” (coined by Nalini Ambady) to nail him.
False teachers have an uncanny knack to sidestep the well-meant criticism and rebuke (Titus 1:13) of those who have a sincere concern for their souls with accusations such as “they find you guilty by association” or “they use material that is a few years old” or “they quote you out of context.” What our friend seems to forget is that we will have to give an account of every word we uttered, whether it was said way back umpteenth years ago or whether is is said right now.
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (Matthew 12:36-37).
Alice Bailey (inspired by the demon Djwal Khul), wrote,
“The churches in the West need also to realize that basically there is only one Church, but it is not necessarily only the orthodox Christian institution. God works in many ways, through many faiths and religious agencies; this is one reason for the elimination of non-essential doctrines. By the emphasizing of the essential doctrines and in their union will the fullness of truth be revealed. This, the new world religion will do and its implementation will proceed apace, after the reappearance of the Christ.”
They all say the same things because their source is the same person – SATAN, also known as Lucifer, the Dragon, the Serpent, Abaddon, Angel of the bottomless pit, Apollyon, Beelzebub, Belial, Deceiver, Murderer, Liar, Father of lies, Lawless One.
And yet, those who teach these things are only doing what their father wants them to do.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44)
I need to warn our readers once again, BEWARE OF MEN WHO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS OR FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST OR UNASHAMEDLY ETHICAL CHRISTIANS OR RADICAL CHRISTIANS OR EMERGENT CHRISTIANS ETC. ETC. ETC.
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. Therefore 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).
These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you [Holy Communion], feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. (Jude 1:12-13).
You need to repent, Stephan Joubert and Graham Power, before it is too late.
