One World Religion: Pope Francis Says All Major Religions Are ‘Meeting God In Different Ways’

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

One World Religion - Apostleship Of PrayerA new video has just been released in which Pope Francis very clearly expresses his belief that all of the major religions are different paths to the same God. He says that while people from various global faiths may be “seeking God or meeting God in different ways” that it is important to keep in mind that “we are all children of God”. This is the most recent example that shows that the Pope has completely abandoned any notion that a relationship with God is available only through Jesus Christ. As he has done throughout his papacy, he continues to lay the groundwork for the coming one world religion, and yet hardly anyone seems upset by this.

When I first heard of this new video, I was so stunned that I thought that it might be a joke. But the truth is that this video is very real. The following comes from an article that was put out by Catholic News Agency

The Pope’s first-ever video message on his monthly prayer intentions was released Tuesday, highlighting the importance of interreligious dialogue and the beliefs different faith traditions hold in common, such as the figure of God and love.

Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways. In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty that we have for all: we are all children of God,” Pope Francis said in his message, released Jan. 6, the feast of the Epiphany.

But it isn’t just Pope Francis speaking in this video. In fact, one section of the video features leaders from various global religions expressing faith in their respective deities. The following comes from an article about this new video that was posted on Christian News Network

The video then features clips of those from different world religions declaring belief in their various deities.

I have confidence in Buddha,” a female lama announces.

I believe in God,” a rabbi affirms.

I believe in Jesus Christ,” a priest states.

I believe in Allah,” an Islamic leader declares.

Are you shocked yet?

The Pope closes the video with an appeal for people from every religion to talk with one another and to work with one another. Here is more from Catholic News Agency

Later on, after the Pope affirms that all, regardless of their religious profession, are children of God, the faith leaders state their common belief in love.

Pope Francis closes the video by expressing his hope that viewers “will spread my prayer request this month: that sincere dialogue among men and women of different faiths may produce fruits of peace and justice. I have confidence in your prayers.”

If you have not seen this video yet, it is definitely worth a few minutes of your time. You can watch it right here

Of course this is not the first time that Pope Francis has done something like this. Very early in his papacy, he authorized “Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran” at the Vatican for the first time ever. And as I documented in a previous article entitled “In New York, Pope Francis Embraced Chrislam And Laid A Foundation For A One World Religion“, during his visit to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan he made it very clear that he believes that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. The following is how he began his address

I would like to express two sentiments for my Muslim brothers and sisters: Firstly, my greetings as they celebrate the feast of sacrifice. I would have wished my greeting to be warmer. My sentiments of closeness, my sentiments of closeness in the face of tragedy. The tragedy that they suffered in Mecca.

In this moment, I give assurances of my prayers. I unite myself with you all. A prayer to almighty god, all merciful.

In Islam, one of Allah’s primary titles is “the all-merciful one”. If you doubt this, just do a Google search. And this certainly was not the first time that Pope Francis has used such language. For example, check out the following excerpt from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting as Pope…

I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.

The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.

Are you starting to get the picture?

Pope Francis believes that all religions are different paths to the same God, and he is working hard to lay a foundation for the coming one world religion.

After watching this most recent video, I don’t know how anyone can possibly deny that.

However, there are some religious people that Pope Francis does not like. Just recently, he referred to Christian fundamentalism as “a sickness“, and he made it clear that there was no room for it in Catholicism.

So precisely what is “fundamentalism”?

Google defines it as “a form of a religion, especially Islam or Protestant Christianity, that upholds belief in the strict, literal interpretation of scripture.”

Does this mean that Pope Francis is against any Christian that believes in a literal interpretation of the Bible?

That does appear to be what he is saying, and without a doubt those would be the Christians that would be against the kind of one world religion that he appears to be promoting.

Nearly 2000 years ago, the Apostle John warned us that a one world religion was coming, and now we can see that it is coming to fruition.

So what will the end result of all of this be?

    This Pope sees the handwriting on the wall.
    The handwriting says we are doomed if we do not figure out a way to get along with one another.
    Getting along means no more wars.
    Lots of luck with that concept as mankind has never succeeded in doing without wars in past history.

    • Jeff Pownell

      one new world order, one new world religion, the signs are starting to show

        always about control and rarely about faith.

    • lindajoyadams

      we can get along in helping others in need ,etc. without each losing our unique identity.

  • BibleNeverWrong

    Rev17 sure gives a pretty exact description of what happens

  • BeenThere

    Search You Tube for “Walter Veith” “Total Onslaught”. It’s a long series but if you wade your way through it, you will find that this pope is teaching what the Jesuits have believed for all the centuries of their existence. Actually many there are many Roman Catholics that are upset at his occult “all paths lead to god” teachings.

    • iris

      Well, if they can see that so many of his words don’t line up with orthodox Christianity, if they’re really Christians, they will rise up in mass protest at the risk of excommunication, or they will take their names off the role.

      Jesus was very clear in saying “I AM The Way, The Truth and The Life, no one comes to the Father except through Me”, and He allowed people to worship Him as God. I think it was C.S. Lewis who said that either He was a lunatic, a con-artist, or God Himself, something close to that, anyway. His actions bore up His statements, and they were not the actions of a fool or a criminal, so, for me, He has proved that He was God come in the flesh, therefore, I believe His statements about how to come to God the Father.

    Brings new meaning to the joke/question that is often used as a sarcastic reply, “Does a bear mess in the woods ?” or..”Is the Pope Christian?’…it appears that the pope is not Christian after all…

    • watchmannonthewall

      Actually, the RCC has never been Christian except in name only. Hopefully, many Catholics will be figuring this out in the near future. Paul himself said he was a member of “the Way” (Acts 24;14), “which they (Jews) call a sect I do serve the God of OUR fathers, believing everything that is in accordance with the Law, and that is written in the Prophets.” Paul said he believed everything written in the OT. He did not say portions of it had passed away as he testified before Governor Felix, and this was at the end of his missionary journeys, jut before going to Roman as a prisoner! Humm!
      The RCC came along under Constantine and at the very same council where they cannonized the OT, along with the Apocrypha, they outlawed Passover, which God established in the OT as a memorial forever and which Paul said the former Gentiles (See Eph. 2:11) at Corinth should keep (1 Cor. 5:6-8), and in its place established Easter as a holy day in definace of God’s Word concerning Passover. The RCC has always changed what God said in the OT.
      I pray all will do their due diligence and research the Councils of Nicea and Laodicea. Many current day false practices stem from the RCC by edict and have been in place for over 1700 years. It destroyed many of the Nazarenes, who actually made up those of “the Way.”
      The Protestant Church continued to participate in many of the false practices/traditions and many Protestants today are making a full return to the RCC as the Pope attempts to fufill the Preterist doctrine the RCC developed in the 1,500’s, which is when the Protestant Church began to teach the RCC was tied to Mystery Bablyon. The gaol is for the false prophet and anti-christ to rule and reign from Jerusalem, which is under the protectorate of the UN.
      Everyone needs to know what they believe and why. Tradition is not a reason to continue in certain practices since there is information available to all through the internet. Many practices today are clearly contrary to God’s Word as written.

  • rmc9

    …I think the “god”, his “whatever”, is promoting is “the god of this world, who blinds the minds of the unbelievers…” the same one that motivates the “moslem” types, to execute Christians…the Catholics did a bunch of that in the past. History repeats.

    • Catarok is night

      Nah, this is just the hippie religion.

      Easy to drive them away, just play Slayer: Raining blood or Lordi: Hallelujah that usually drives them away.

    • iris

      Agree!

      For those who remain in the RCC, they’re proving that their god is the RCC and whichever pope is in power at the time, not the god of the Bible, RCC’s version of it or otherwise. As for “working hard to lay a foundation for the coming one world religion”, I think it’s already here, among those of different religions and who don’t consider themselves fundamentalists. Of course, it has been here for a long time, people are just becoming more vocal and militant, “crying Peace, Peace, but there is no peace.” They are very fundamental in their disdain for Bible believing Christians and Jews, ironically, however.

      Notice that the pope only names Christian fundamentalists as being “sick”, what about Muslim fundamentalists, they’re the same ones who are terrorists, killing anyone who doesn’t convert to Islam, when possible. By making his blanket statements, it is obvious to me that he is ok with their behavior, hence their beliefs and the state of their hearts and minds.

      This is all in place, imo, we’re just not seeing it enforced on a world scale, yet.

    • Eevie

      They really are all the same god. Biggest joke on humans ever pulled. Should piss everyone off, but no….they are pissed because their false beliefs have been challenged. Search it for yourself…it’s the truth.

  • George

    So why were all those Waldensians, Albigensians and Protestants burned at the stake or killed in a multitude of other ways? If it really was the belief of Francis’s “Church” that all paths lead to God, then those people would have been left in peace, don’t you think? I sense opportunism here. One form of error can be very tolerant and accepting of other forms of error when it advances the agenda of the first form of error; only the truth as it is in Jesus cannot be tolerated.

    • iris

      Yep.

    • Nick-Dog

      I don’t defend burning at the stake, and killing people for different Christian beliefs is not a good thing.

      Burning at the stake was a chief method of capital punishment at the time. The State, which was made up of many Catholics, not the Church itself, burned heretics in order to prevent disorder in its ranks. Did members of the Church look the other way, often, yes, or approve of these things, yes. Does that make it right? No.

      Does that make the Church in its official teachings wrong, if men fail to follow them and live up to the Gospel? No.

    • John Williams

      Please learn some history. Missionaries were murdered and nuns were raped before any hair on the head of Waldensians and Albigensians was harmed…. and then there are the Protestant Black Legends, propaganda. Even the anti-Catholic BBC told that truth:

  • Sam

    Well… technically, there are actually 2 ways to “meet God”. You can meet Him through the “bridge” of Jesus Christ with mercy and forgiveness… or you can “meet” Him on “any other” terms and stand on your own merits. I do NOT recommend the latter and frankly, neither does He.

    • iris

      Agree! Only God is perfect, and He requires perfection of humanity, so, what God required, He accomplished for us, because we could not. He has already secured our salvation, which includes His own perfect righteousness and love, but only if we receive Jesus Christ as The LORD and Savior. “All have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God”. We have to believe, receive and live by God’s free gift. He lived the life we should have lived and died the death we should have died. He has given us His very self, there is nothing more He could have done, and that was while we were still His enemies. If this much love, grace and mercy is refused, no good work could ever change the mind or the plan of God. He is a merciful judge, but a fair judge.

    • lindajoyadams

      But we meet HIM at some point in time and eternal life is to follow…HIM

    • Holger Jahndel

      @Sam:

      There are indeed two ways: Follow a special religion which are different in their ways and goals and qualitys. (and now just think Logic)

      Or stand alone and face your own Karma you created by yourself in the many lives you lived without any spiritual help.

      I do the first one.

    • fadaf

      do you know english. after killing all red indians, aborigines, blacks , you dare to call the bridge of jesus as a peace bridge.

      • Holger Jahndel

        Most of the Indians and Indios died of diseases the Europeans brought to them and they could not resist. Not good for them of course and probably not better than to be killed by violent acts. But these are the historical facts.
        And do not forget> The Aztecs were so cruel and blood thirsty that even their former subjects supported the Europeans against them. Cortez had many Mexican Indian tribes in his Conquistador army.
        The Blacks were enslaved and killed mostly by Muslims and especially Arabs, the biggest slave traders and genocide murderers in the whole history of mankind. Since Mohammed and his Jihads and Quran law with Sharia and Dhimmi System preaching war against any non believer.

    • neil allen

      But certainly, the pope confirmed that the whole “one true church” idea that Catholics have been saying for 2000 years is debunked.

    Pair him up with the Imposter-in-Chief who will be seeking the UN Secty General position being vacated by Ban Ki Moon and I think you have a winning combination for the coming Anti-Christ and False Prophet duo! Think about it before you mock – this isn’t far fetched at all.

    • lindajoyadams

      That was planned back in 1961 and why he does not know of his origins in Topeka ks where he was born and his dad was lynched and his mother and he unborn were to be also. That injustice and cover up of three dead has led to deals etc leading us to where we are now. Pray for potus that he does not fall from grace.

  • carson

    stunned? aren’t all aware of the inter-faith movement, who’s involved and what it means, coupled with the verse on on the anti-christ declares he’s ‘god’ (which is exactly whom the inter-faithers all claim to be worshiping right now) we can see that yes, the final and global religion, all set and primed for the anti-christ to come take the helm of.

    funny, google defines fundamentalism as a ‘form’, google and the pope say that being born again is a ‘form’…
    Yet God say’s in 2nd timothy 3:5 that religion/anything short of being born again in Christ born of the Spirit born of God is a form, and to turn away from such.

    and if we’re all children of God..whose in adam? if we’re all born from the womb in Christ then who is in adam/the flesh?…and why does anyone needs be born again if we’re all children of God? And we’re all God’s children then there are no sinners..so why was Christ even sent then? And why the verses on how God adopts people who receive Christ, why would He adopt people who are already His? And what is john 1:12…only in Christ is one a child of God.
    1st john 5:12, john 3:18..but those truths upset the worldly/religious..thus the inter-faithers cannot and will not speak the truth lest they upset the worldly religious. Inter-faithers are sold out to the world, but pray that any of them might be granted repentance leading to the acknowledging of the truth and that they might recover themselves from the snares of the devil and flesh that’s blinded them and that they might be saved in Christ in all truth.

    and flee the pope and the religions and their false paths, Christ Jesus is the only way truth and life.

    • iris

      Exactly.

    Alberto Rivera states “What I’m going to tell you is what I learned in secret briefings in the Vatican when I was a Jesuit priest, under oath and induction. A Jesuit cardinal named Augustine Bea showed us how desperately the Roman Catholics wanted Jerusalem at the end of the third century. Because of its religious history and its strategic location, the Holy City was considered a priceless treasure. A scheme had to be developed to make Jerusalem a Roman Catholic city. A great untapped source of manpower that could do this job was the children of Ishmael. The poor Arabs fells victim to one of the most clever plans ever devised by the powers of darkness” The Vatican created Islam. The Jesuits are satanic killers. The Black Cube of Saturn is located at three locations: Mecca, Vatican and the UN “religious room” Of course Rivera was murdered by poisoning. Why do USA tax payers pay a tax to the demonic Vatican and English crown? WAKE UP

  • lindajoyadams

    One world religion will not work for Christians. Freedom of thought does not allow one doctrinal interpretation for all.There is common wisdom that seems to be. But Christians believe one has to go through Christ for eternal life. We do not all agree to what that means, but it is something far different than just believing in God that John said was Love. in his Gospel. Its a dull world or worse where everyone believes the same in the same way, or has to . Linda Joy Adams

    • Louis Charles

      Christ brought to earth the concept of His Word NOT BEING OF RELIGION. It’s a theology, in our vernacular. St. John, 14:6 This is not up for “interpretation” or denominational discussions. It’s clear to all.

  • Nick-Dog

    On this point, I think you are being a fear-mongering, jack-ass Michael. On its face, with the exception of the last quote, which is a bit of an overreach to claim that Muslims worship the one God (because Muslims claim the Old Testament as part of their tradition), there is nothing inherently un-Christian in the Pope’s remarks.

    As a Catholic, I am frequently not a fan of Francis’ leadership style and have levied public and concise criticism when I think it’s due. This article by you though is specious. Pope JPII bent over backwards to be more hospitable to Islam as well, not because Muslims have the truth, per se, but to turn the corner in world and Catholic-Muslim relations in the present, which, over the centuries, have been war, war, and more war.

    In fact, in the Catholic Church we (led by the Pope) annually celebrate two Holy Days that mark the defeat of Muslim forces because of the intercession of Mary: the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary (Sept. 12) to commemorate Christian victory at Vienna in 1683, and October 7, the Feast of the Holy Rosary, to commemorate the victory over the Muslims at Lepanto.

    Your take on the Pope’s words here is, quite frankly, dumb. I think your take on economic and other issues merit praise. I am no fan of Islam or other religions. If you cannot see that the Pope is trying to promote peace rather than a universalist religion in which all religions are considered equal, then you are blinded by what you prefer to see rather than what is actually there.

    If you want to go round and round on this, we can. However, the issue is not the truth as much as it is your personal bias and belief.

  • Kent Harris

    How does the Pope address the fact that Jesus is God in the flesh? Because the Bible clearly states He is our Creator.

    • Nick-Dog

      The Catholic Church, and thus the Pope, clearly teaches that Jesus Christ is God. Catholics profess this Faith in their Creed each Sunday.

      • iris

        Whether the RCC or its pope teach that Jesus Christ is God or not, He is God and doesn’t need our approval. We might say things with our lips which aren’t grounded in personal faith in Christ, and a real, living relationship with Him in His righteousness, because of that faith. I’m familiar with liturgy, and while it and the lovely ceremony which usually accompanies, can be comforting, reverent and uplifting, just showing up or saying the right things, doesn’t cut it. This pope is professing blasphemous things, those who truly know Christ personally, need to step up to the plate and refute these professions, for their souls’ sakes.

    • Holger Jahndel

      @Kent Harris:

      Jesus calls himself in the New Testament of the bible JHWH. He says “I am Jahwe.”
      Only the Zeugen Jehovas and some Puritans and Calvinists seem to deny that, because of their faked bible translations with wrong translation and fraud interpretation. See for example the NEW WORLD translation of the Zeugen Jehovas. This is what happens, if you put the old Testament as equal ore even above the New Testament. It is the other way round: The New Testament interpret the Old Testament in a new way. The New Testament stand above the old testament and is more important than the old testament. This is important to know! Because the other way means you fall back under the old mosaic law like an old Testament Jew. Then the Holy Spirit and the Grace of Jesus Christ and God (father) JHWH or ELOHIM will not come to you. You will be back under the law of the old testament and not under the grace of the New Testament and the blessings connected with it. And even in the GENESIS of the old Testament it is written: The Spirit of God (in female Hebrew word form) was “breeding” on the waters (acting as a Person, and “breeding” like a dove or gull)…you can find the Christian Trinity also in the Old Testament, see for example SOPHIA (Greek Septuaginta, “Chokhma” or “Chakhema” in Hebrew Language) in the Septuaginta as part of the old testament being written in Greek language, especially “The book of wisdom”! In The New Testament the Holy Spirit quoted as “the Spirit of Wisdom”.
      See also LOGOS for Christ (meaning as the philosopher Plato(n) meant it) in the New Testament and especially St. Paul and St. John and in the old Testament the ANTHROPOS as the platonic ideal divine man or cosmic heavenly Adam (Adam Kadmon).

    Yes, I’ve heard that about Mary, and I’ll bet she highly disagrees with such blasphemy. RCC used her name as one of the first tools in the church growth movement. She was a virgin at Jesus’ birth, a godly woman who came to faith in Her Savior, whom she bore, but He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, and the NT is clear that Jesus had younger siblings.

  • Tom Jefferson

    The Jewish Prophets, Buddha, Jesus and Mohammed all taught the Golden Rule. The Golden rule is all God’s laws and commandments rolled into one. The Golden Rule is an expression of human kinship. The rule helps ensure respect for the rights of others. The golden rule is a moral a compass for discerning the best way to treat others. It causes us to look outside ourselves, thus keeping pride at bay. The rule is versatile, broadly applicable, and far reaching in its impact. Anyone who sincerely applies the Golden Rule helps ensure their acts are consistent with their moral standards. And for those who put God’s teachings at center, the rule becomes a means of patterning their lives after the Divine. Pope Francis is correct all major religions are paths to God, and that path is the Golden Rule. People of different faiths should not be fighting one another. The Golden Rule is a pathway to peace. Using God’s name to turn one faith against another is blasphemy.

  • Magnum McMillan

    The video is only now being absorbed and I agree there is a clear schism forming not only among the world’s Christian sects, but the video’s message will also energize Islamic, Hindu, and Buddhist fundamentalists, who will each loudly decry the Pope’s aggrandizment disguised as religious unity.

    There are many Catholics who despise what the Pope has been doing to subvert miileniums-old dogma, including Pat Buchanan. But the pot has now come to the boil.

    In case you didn’t know, there is a track record of Vatican research into astronomy and extraterrestrial life. The October 1917 Fatima vision has some evidence of mass hallucination caused to promote Mary as co-equal to Jesus.

    And, the predictions of the Fatima girls included an arrival from beings who will come to our planet in the not-too-distant future to unite all peoples in their plans.

    That is the real danger down the road. And hint, who comes riding to the rescue eventually? But, that is a ways down the road, not anytime soon. So buckle down.

    But for 2016, watch and see as sectarian fundamentalists of all stripes resist this global power grab by Francis. The wars, conflicts, upheaval will greatly intensify in the coming months (in my humble opinion).
