[COMMENT: The confrontation is coming -- between a revived Christendom and the secular/pagan alliance to control the world for "peace". Meaning - to control the world. There are no other alternatives -- only these two. So, choose this day whom you will serve.
Our choice is between "Jesus is Lord" and "civil government is lord". That is it. So make up your minds as to which you think is reality.
The Church in the West is all but totally dysfunctional, hardly aware even of the problem. The third world Church is alive, but not yet ready to deal with the corrosive effects of secularism other than by the same way the West tried (and failed) -- by burrowing into a closed Biblical Box, and thereby becoming steadily more irrelevant to reality as people were experiencing and thinking about it.
If Western Christians continue to recover their intellectual credibility, they will also recover their moral and spiritual credibility. But that is yet some time off, and the globalist folks have an enormous momentum going. Well, what else can they do in the absence of a credible Biblical witness? "Father, forgive them, they know not what they do." But why do Christians hardly know what they are doing? Because they have abandoned their Biblical foundations and are more secular than Biblical.
Time to get our
epistemology and worldview
foundations under us, and then to go on the offensive to help bring in the only
possible successful global government, that under Jesus, King of kings and Lord
of lords. E. Fox]

There have been a number of religious leaders over the years who have advocated world government. According to the American Baha'i WORLD ORDER (October 1947), "Baha Ullah spoke of a United Nations of the World as early as 1860," and called for a world religion, world government, world police force, world language and world currency.
Among Protestants, the American Baptist Publication Society in 1919 published THE NEW WORLD ORDER by Samuel Zane Batten, in which he declared: "The old order passes from view; the new world rises upon our vision....We have vindicated the right of social control....There must be developed a national spirit of service....Society must break the stranglehold of capitalism....The natural resources of the nation must be socialized....The state must socialize every group....Men must learn to have world patriotism. World patriotism must be a faith....There is no more justice for the claim of absolute sovereignty on the part of a nation than on the part of an individual....The only alternative is World Federation...with a world parliament, an international court, and an international police force....Men must have an international mind before there can be a world federation. They must see and affirm that above the nation is humanity. Internationalism must first be a religion before it can be a reality and a system."
Batten was a prominent official with the Northern Baptist Convention, Baptist World Alliance, World Brotherhood Federation, and a founder of the Brotherhood of the Kingdom in 1892 along with Walter Rauschenbusch. Rauschenbusch was a Fabian Socialist who stated in 1893 that "the only power that can make socialism succeed, if it is established, is religion." And in Edgar Bundy's COLLECTIVISM IN THE CHURCHES (1958), one reads regarding Rauschenbusch that "Socialism thus was his first concern. Religion was only a means toward achieving socialism."
Rauschenbusch was known as the "father of the Social Gospel" and taught at Rochester Theological Seminary, which was funded by the Rockefellers. The Rockefellers also funded the establishment on December 2, 1908, of the Federal Council of Churches, co-founded by Rauschenbusch (Baptist) and Harry Ward (Methodist). In Congressional testimony July 1953, former top Communist Party official Manning Johnson testified that for many years Ward "has been the chief architect for Communist infiltration and subversion in the religious field," in seminaries, divinity schools, churches,, and in religious organizations. The Federal Council of Churches would become the National Council of Churches, part of the Socialist-dominated World Council of Churches.
Pertaining to Christian Science, early in the 20th century, there was a change in the leadership of the CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. This newspaper became one of the five Prof. Carroll Quigley in TRAGEDY AND HOPE (1966) mentioned as being influenced by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which was an outgrowth of Cecil Rhodes' plan "to take the government of the whole world," in Rhodes' own words. According to Erwin Canham, Frederick Dixon, MONITOR editor (1914-1922), was "on intimate terms with Col. Edward M. House," who was President Woodrow Wilson's chief adviser, an agent of the power elite, and a moving force behind the CFR. According to PROCEEDINGS IN EQUITY (1919-1921), after Dixon addressed the MONITOR's board of directors, a resolution was introduced on January 17, 1917 "that the editor of the CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR be authorized to editorially and through the news columns of the MONITOR endorse and support an alliance of the English-speaking peoples...." This was a furtherance of Rhodes' plan.
Erwin Canham was a Rhodes scholar (named for Cecil Rhodes), who was MONITOR editor (1939-1964) and editor-in-chief (1964-1974), as well as president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and of the American Society of Newspaper Editors. For most of Canham's editorship, another Rhodes scholar, Clayton Bion Craig, was on the board of directors of the Christian Science Church (1948-1972).
Both Lord Waldorf Astor and Lady Nancy Astor were Christian Scientists who were members of Cecil Rhodes' secret Circle of Initiates, as was Philip Kerr (also known as Lord Lothian), who wrote editorial columns for the MONITOR. CFR member Richard Nenneman was MONITOR editor-in-chief from 1988 to 1993, during which time was published a column by World Federalist Association president and CFR member Norman Cousins on January 2, 1990, calling for "a system of world interdependence" and claiming that "the national sovereign state in its present form is an anachronism." And in the February 20, 1990, edition of the MONITOR, Cousins asked "how to give the World Court compulsory jurisdiction."
The Catholic Church underwent dramatic changes with the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s. And on December 7, 1965, Vatican II document, PASTORAL CONSTITUTION ON THE CHURCH IN THE MODERN WORLD, was published and pronounced: "It is our clear duty to strain every muscle in working for the time when all war can be completely outlawed by international consent. This goal undoubtedly requires the establishment of some universal public authority acknowledged as such by all and endowed with the power to safeguard on the behalf of all...." Then 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."
Today in many Protestant as well as Catholic churches, one is more likely to hear a message about the need for "social action" than the need to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in order to be saved and go to heaven. In fact, there is currently one very popular religious figure who began his ministry by surveying people about what they thought should be preached at church, and he holds leadership seminars emphasizing the need for social action and service. Does this sound like the words of the "father of public opinion," Edward Bernays (Sigmund Freud's nephew), who wrote in PROPAGANDA (1928) that in the future there would be a businessman/politician who would take "a survey of public desires and demands" in order to say, "I must lead the people. Am I not their servant?"
Bernays also wrote in PROPAGANDA: "Those who manipulate the organized habits and opinions of the masses constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of the country....It remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons....It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world."
The power elite who "guide the world" are guiding us all toward a World Socialist Government, and religion plays an important role in their plans. Cecil Rhodes formed the secret Society of the Elect in 1891 "to take the government of the whole world," as indicated earlier. Rhodes' secret society was comprised of a secret Circle of Initiates and a semi-secret Association of Helpers, with the latter forming the Round Table Group.
According to Martin Erdmann in BUILDING THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH (2005), "the principal method chosen by the Group to bring about that 'organic union of nations in a commonwealth embracing the whole world' was to persuade the general public by various means of mass communication, and in particular through the activities of the churches, to accept a world federation 'as the only final basis of freedom and enduring peace'." (See THE ROUND TABLE, September 1935, for a review of its first 25 years.)

Religion & World Government -- Part II
By Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
Among the agents of the power elite were the Dulles brothers, John Foster Dulles (Secretary of State under President Eisenhower) and Allen Dulles (CIA director under Eisenhower and President Kennedy). In preparing for an ecumenical conference at Oxford University, John Foster Dulles wrote "The Problem of Peace in a Dynamic World" (RELIGION IN LIFE, Spring 1937), in which he described the benefits of both Communism and Fascism in pursuing desirable social policies in the future World State.
In July 1937, the conference was held and among the participants were John Foster Dulles, Philip Kerr (Lord Lothian), and Sir Alfred Zimmern (a member of Rhodes' Association of Helpers, and probably Prof. Carroll Quigley's main source for "secret records" about Rhodes' secret society and plan "to take the government of the whole world," in Rhodes' own words). The proceedings of the conference were published in THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH AND THE WORLD OF NATIONS (1938), and contained Lord Lothian's "The Demonic Influence of National Sovereignty," in which he referred to "the evil of nationalism" and "the need for world government." In Zimmern's "The Ethical Presuppositions of a World Order," he emphasized the need to implement Auguste Comte's "Religion of Humanity." Comte in July 1851 published that "The objective of our philosophy is to direct the spiritual reorganization of the civilized world." According to Erica Carle in WHY THINGS ARE THE WAY THEY ARE (1996), Comte's "Religion of Humanity" was "to replace Christianity" by establishing "a World Management System based on service to collective Humanity rather than God." Sir Alfred Zimmern believed Comte's "Religion of Humanity" would be embodied in the League of Nations.
The year after Zimmern's and the other conference proceedings were published, on October 28, 1939, John Foster Dulles advocated that "Some dilution or leveling off of the sovereignty system as it prevails in the world today must take place...to the immediate disadvantage of those nations which now possess the preponderance of power....The establishment of a common money...would deprive our government of exclusive control over a national money...The United States must be prepared to make sacrifices afterwards in setting up a world politico-economic order which would level off any inequalities of economic opportunity with respect to nations." Dulles would call his approach "functionalism," which fit with the power elite's plan of bringing about a world government by linking regional economic arrangements. Just like the European (Economic) Community preceded the European Union, so too is the current plan for a North American Community to precede the North American Union. In June 1941, Dulles wrote a letter stating: "I would favor economic and financial union, letting the political union work out of them if and when this became a natural development."
The next year, Dulles chaired a meeting of 30 religious denominations called together by the Federal Council of Churches, and TIME (March 16, 1942) reported they adopted a program calling for "a duly constituted world government of delegated powers: an international legislative body, an international court with adequate jurisdiction, international administrative bodies with necessary powers, and adequate international police forces and provision for enforcing its worldwide economic authority." According to Robert Herzstein's biography HENRY R. LUCE (1994), TIME's editor-in-chief (Luce) was assured by Dulles that the Federal Council of Churches supported "world government as an ultimate ideal." Remember that the Federal Council of Churches was formed with financial support by the Rockefellers, and Dulles was an in-law of the Rockefellers. Luce was a member of Yale University's secret Skull & Bones society, as is President George W. Bush along with his father and grandfather.
Immediately after World War II, John Foster Dulles became chairman of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in 1946 (he chose Alger Hiss to be the Endowment's president), and in that same year, his brother Allen Dulles co-authored THE UNITED NATIONS, in which he projected: "There is no indication that the American public opinion, for example, would approve the establishment of a super state, or permit American membership in it. In other words, time---a long time---will be needed before world government is politically feasible....This time element might seemingly be shortened so far as American opinion is concerned by an active propaganda campaign in this country."
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."
While John Foster Dulles used Christian terminology in speeches, he really believed in the "universal brotherhood of man," and postulated that "the moral, or natural, law is (also) revealed through other (than Christianity) religions...so that it is a force far more universal than any particular religion." Later, on June 19, 1955, in an address to the San Francisco Council of Churches, Dulles indicated that the moral law is a pantheistic concept and "the religious people of the world can generate the motive power required to vitalize a world organization" like the U.N. At this time, Dulles had become an active member of the World Brotherhood.
But how would various religious views be brought together? Sir Julian Huxley, the first director-general of UNESCO, wrote in UNESCO: ITS PURPOSE AND ITS PHILOSOPHY (1948) that "the task is to help the emergence of a single world culture....Two opposing philosophies of life confront each other....You may categorize the two philosophies as two super-nationalisms, or as individualism versus collectivism...or as capitalism versus communism, or as Christianity versus Marxism. Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis? I believe not only that this can happen, but that, through the inexorable dialectic of evolution, it must happen...." "Dialectical Synthesis" is the favorite tactic of the power elite, whose goal is to synthesize Western Capitalism and Eastern Communism into a World Socialist Government.
And once the U.N.'s "single world culture" referred to by Huxley is brought about, then no American's appeal to "human rights" will matter, because Article 29 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "...these rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations."
Two years after the Universal Declaration was written, John Foster Dulles as chairman of the board of the Rockefeller Foundation took John D. Rockefeller III on a tour of Third World countries in 1950-1951 stressing the need eugenically to control the growth of non-white populations. The next year (1952), Rockefeller and Dulles formed the Population Council. Both Dulles brothers also believed the government should use mass psychology, which was in line with the goal of the Rockefeller Foundation as its president Max Mason expressed to its board of trustees on April 11, 1933: "The Foundation's Social Sciences will concern themselves with the rationalization of social control,...the control of human behavior."
