commentary: A New Religious Union
Religion in America
Martin G. Collins
Given 11-Aug-12; Sermon #1115c; 13 minutes
Martin Collins, focusing on a movement variously called "Interfaith dialogue," "global neighborhood," or "new religious union," suggests that pressure is being brought to bear by groups such as the World Council of Churches and the United Nations to develop a syncretistic, homogenized religion which it intends to foist onto a gullible, unsuspecting public. Among nominal Christian groups, only the Latter Day Saints have experienced a net gain in members. Roman Catholic and Protestants have lost membership. In 1996, 86% of the American populace identified themselves as Christian, but in 2008, that percentage dropped to 76%. In the meantime, Islam and Atheism have gained significant ground. Meanwhile the federal government has plans to blend the commonalities of these diverse religions, forming a kind of "religious unity" and "global solidarity" controlling people's minds by issuing government-allowed topics for discussion. Satan has been highly successful at blinding the minds of unbelievers and deceiving believers, counterfeiting and imitating what God does for his own sinister purposes.
