ONE world, ONE faith, ONE plan
One of the most mind-boggling sections in Tamara Hartzell's new online book In the Name of Purpose: Sacrificing Truth at the Altar of Unity is Chapter 16. It is a must-read for anyone trying to understand Rick Warren's grandiose Global P.E.A.C.E. Plan:
“Together as ONE We Can Change the World”
On June 3, 2005, Rick Warren announced his support of “The ONE Campaign: To Make Poverty History” in an e-mail titled, “Will You Join Me?” In it, he acknowledged that this Campaign has been “endorsed by a wide coalition of folks from all across the faith and political spectrum” (emphasis added). He also explained how he was joining with “U.S. Faith Leaders” in sending a letter to President Bush to lobby him to fight global poverty at the G8 Summit this past July. He and the other Faith Leaders included the following statements in their letter to Bush:
“Americans are uniting as ONE across political and religious divides to support action to overcome the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty.”
“Together as ONE, we can Make Poverty History this July.”1
Rick Warren also encouraged his readers to visit the website of The ONE Campaign, which has boldly declared:
“Together as ONE we can change the world.”2
In support of The ONE Campaign, on July 2, 2005 Rick Warren attended the Live 8 Concert in Philadelphia, of which he was reportedly made “official pastor.”3 In covering this event, Forbes reported:
“Prior to the concert, Warren joined One organizers in a rally on the steps behind the Philadelphia Art Museum to encourage young volunteers.
“‘Because you are involved in the One Campaign, you are interested in change,’ he said. ‘If you are serious about change, you need to do two things. First, focus on vision, not need; call out the greatness in people, not their guilt. Secondly, don’t tell it like it is, but rather like it could be, should be, and may be.
“‘We don’t want people to die of poverty or diseases for which we already have cures, because God loves them.’ Warren continued. I believe with all my heart we can do this - and I believe you are the generation to do it.’ Pastor Warren was joined on the platform by Pastor Herb Lusk, with whom he is partnering on the Purpose Driven ‘Stand for Africa’ campaign.
“‘I was in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968 when the voice of Martin Luther King was silenced - it was the darkest day of my life.’ Pastor Lusk said. ‘But I look at Bono, Rick Warren, the One movement, and I realize that voice is still alive.’
“‘I don’t know all the statistics -- I’m just a country preacher - but I do know there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God, and one Father who is in us and above us all - and there is the One campaign.’” [!] (Emphasis added)4
The U.N.’s Goals: Uniting the World as ONE
The ONE Campaign consists of a growing number of partners that either directly or indirectly support strengthening the United Nations and fulfilling its goals. In fact, the following is the Campaign’s answer to the question, “How does ONE link to international agreements to fight poverty?”:
“ONE links directly to the international effort to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. 1% more of the US federal budget would help save millions of lives and be a major commitment towards achieving the internationally agreed upon United Nations Millennium Development Goals.” (Emphasis added)5
In their letter to President Bush, Rick Warren and the U.S. Faith Leaders, in accordance with this purpose of The ONE Campaign, asked him to give “just ONE percent more of the US budget.”6 They did so seemingly without any regard for the far-reaching ramifications of strengthening the United Nations and its goals.
The U.N.’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are uniting the world and its religions (faiths) in transcendent common purpose. These goals are the international development goals in the U.N.’s Millennium Declaration, a Resolution adopted by the General Assembly on September 8, 2000. This Resolution declares the United Nations and its Charter to be “indispensable foundations of a more peaceful, prosperous and just world.” This Resolution also explicitly upholds Agenda 21, the Kyoto Protocol, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, among other destructive U.N. agendas.7 This Resolution has been adopted by all United Nations Member States,8 and now it is also being supported by today’s Christianity and other religions via its MDGs.
The framework is all coming together for the U.N.’s ultimate goal of uniting the world as ONE under its control. Its comprehensive Resolution, which the world has embraced, also contains the following statements (emphasis added):
“We are determined to establish a just and lasting peace all over the world in accordance with the purposes and principles of the Charter.”
“As the most universal and most representative organization in the world, the United Nations must play the central role.”
“We will spare no effort to make the United Nations a more effective instrument for pursuing all of these priorities …”
“We solemnly reaffirm, on this historic occasion, that the United Nations is the indispensable common house of the entire human family, through which we will seek to realize our universal aspirations for peace, cooperation and development. We therefore pledge our unstinting support for these common objectives and our determination to achieve them.”9
On the U.N.’s website directly underneath the heading, “Charter of the United Nations,” the belief is upheld that unity can change the world:
“We the Peoples of the United Nations … United for a Better World.” (Ellipsis dots in the original)10
Only on the very surface do the U.N.’s goals appear noble and compassionate. These eight MDGs have much in common with the giants of Rick Warren’s Global PEACE Plan, such as fighting poverty, hunger, disease, and lack of education.11 Yet underlying the seemingly compassionate surface is a massive networking of purposes, principles, and control interweaving throughout every aspect of society that seeks to draw all into the new world order.
This new world order will culminate in Satan’s global government—a Beast that will fulfill Satan’s Dream, Vision, and Plan in its devouring of the whole world (e.g., see Revelation 13 and Daniel 7:7-8, 21, 23-25). It will succeed by using the Angel of light’s message and works of counterfeit “light” and “peace” to deceive, assimilate, and unite those who refuse to love God’s absolute truth. Those who refuse to compromise the truth and cooperate with its works of darkness will be purged from the planet.
At this time, the U.N. is the most prominent organization behind Satan’s Plan for a global government. Skeptics have pointed out that the U.N. has no teeth—i.e., no power to enforce its laws. Satan himself is going to be the teeth in his global government through his coming Antichrist, regarding whom Scripture says “the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority” (Revelation 13:2).
Incidentally, the U.N. has even been referred to as “the body of Christ” by the world-renowned, U.N.-adored Robert Muller, who personifies the (New Age) New Spirituality beliefs and goals of the U.N.12 When fully implemented, the U.N.’s agendas will hold dire consequences for true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Regarding the comprehensiveness of its Resolution that has already been adopted by the world, even U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has admitted:
“The Adoption of the Millennium Development Goals, drawn from the United Nations Millennium Declaration, was a seminal event in the history of the United Nations. It constituted an unprecedented promise by world leaders to address, as a single package, peace, security, development, human rights and fundamental freedoms.” (Emphasis added)13
Nevertheless, a growing number of Christian organizations have blindly joined the world in backing the U.N. and its goals, such as directly or through The ONE Campaign. Likewise, Rick Warren’s P.E.A.C.E. Plan “coordinated its early efforts with United Nations and other relief agencies,” according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.14 Support for the U.N. is global.
