Dear Friend of America's Survival,
What is the Pope up to?
One of our readings in chuch for today was from 1 Timothy 2:5: For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.
But it seems like Pope Francis believes he is the mediator between the earth and mankind.
The Pope represents the New Age Movement, not traditional or Biblical Christianity.
In order to understand the New Age Movement and how it radically differs from Christianity, some basic facts about the philosophy of religion need to be addressed. There are three general theologies about the ultimate status of man and God:
(1) Man is distant from and radically different than God. (2) Man is identical to and at one with God. (3) Man is distant from and radically different than God but that man becomes one with God through mediation, the Christ or Messiah. This is the Christian view.
The New Age Movement incorporates the second option, which is attained through awareness, meditation, altered states of consciousness, psychedelic drugs, or evolution into the oneness. But it also incorporates part of the third option, as the followers of the New Age Movement anticipate the arrival of a Messiah, other than Jesus Christ, to save the world. This is based on a transition into a New World Order via a global religion and one-world economic system commonly called socialism or communism.
Will the New Age Movement use Pope Francis as their “Messiah” for purposes of influence or control in what has been called a New World Order?
The Vatican list of participants in the upcoming Amazon Synod, a special assembly that will discuss issues related to the environment and the Catholic Church in Rome, includes Jeffrey Sachs, a special advisor to the United Nations and director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University. The Sachs view is that global organizations such as the U.N. must dictate the course of nations and individual rights must be sacrificed for the greater good. One aspect of this unfolding plan, as outlined in the Sachs book, The End of Poverty, involves extracting billions of dollars from the American people through global taxes.
“We will need, in the end, to put real resources in support of our hopes,” he wrote. “A global tax on carbon-emitting fossil fuels might be the way to begin. Even a very small tax, less than that which is needed to correct humanity’s climate-deforming overuse of fossil fuels, would finance a greatly enhanced supply of global public goods.” Sachs has estimated the price tag for the U.S. at $845 billion.
Sachs has challengedthe "American idea" of God-given rights embodied in the Declaration of Independence as old-fashioned and out-of-date.
