Signs of the Times

One-World Religion

PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE: The Bible clearly teaches that there will be some kind of universal religion that will use its influence to enable the Beast, a world military and economic dictator, to rise to power.

There are already religious movements working toward the goal of a "United Religions," modeled after the United Nations. Once born-again Christians have been taken up to meet Christ in the Rapture, what is left of Christianity will be willing to cooperate with other religions in the name of peace.

According to the prophecy in Revelation about the "Mark of the Beast," all people will be required to worship the Beast in order to receive permission to buy or sell. His world religious movement will be led by the False Prophet of Revelation 13. It's influence will be symbolized by the spiritually adulterous woman who rides the Beast in Revelation 17.

Christians asking is the pope still Catholic?

Nov. 17, 2017
It’s a question being asked about the current head of the Roman Catholic Church, Francis, who critics believe is showing signs of abandoning fundamental Catholic doctrines – including the existence of hell.

This might mean that the Catholic church will accept “universalism,” the belief that everyone will ultimately be given salvation, Pope Francis recently said, “everything will be saved” when Christ returns.

Pope Francis’ associates compare right-wing US Christians with jihadists

Aug. 4, 2017 - In the journal Civilta’ Cattolica, two Catholic theologians close to Pope Francis accuse American evangelicals and conservative Catholics of having a worldview that is “not too far apart’’ from jihadists. Antonio Spadaro, the journal’s editor, is a Jesuit like the Pope, and is said to have the Pope's ear.
Provocatively, the authors declare that the philosophy of the Christian right and violent Islamists are more similar than many care to think: “At heart, the narrative of terror shapes the world-views of jihadists and the new crusaders."
