the dignitaries in Australia this July were truly remarkable.
MAURICE STRONG, New Age leader who headed the NWO Earth
was in Australia;
the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. George Carey was in Melbourne to open the Multicultural Conference;
Cardinal Francis Arinze, tipped by many to be the next Pope of the Catholic Church, was at the Religious Conference in Melbourne.
The Governor General of Australia, Sir William Deane, was in attendance at The Religion and Cultural Diversity Conference in Melbourne.
Many political big names gathered there also.
A profusion of religious leaders came together,
Anglican and Catholic Archbishops in purple and scarlet,
Buddhists in saffron robes,
Greek Orthodox priests,
World Vision representatives,
Salvation Army officers,
Uniting Church ministers,
the Church of Christ was represented -
many others. (A list can be sent of presenters and delegates for those interested...will be Online soon)
The Australian Multicultural Foundation, executive director, Mr Hass Dellal, the President/Moderator of the World Council on Religion and Peace, took a lead role in the three day and two night conference. We were given a glamorous cocktail reception at Parliament House on the Monday night!
The actual program planning committee comprised:
The Hon.Sir James Gobbo AC, the Governor of Victoria
(Then Chairman of the Australian Multicultural Foundation 1988 - April 1997);
Mr B.(Hass) Dellal OAM, Australian Multicultural Foundation;
Dr. John Bodycomb OAM, World Conference on Religion and Peace Australia;
Professor Desmond Cahill, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology;
Dr Fiona Hill, World Conference on Religion and Peace Australia;
Rev. John Baldock (1996), World Conference on Religion and Peace.
Supporting sponsors were:
Victorian Multicultural Commission,
the National Australian Bank,
The University of Melbourne and
the State Government of Victoria.
Members and Signatories of the Australian Multicultural Foundation include:
The Hon.Mr John Howard MP (Prime Minister of Australia)
the Hon. Mr Kim Beazley MP (leader of the Opposition).
The New Age international organizations "Conflict Resolution Network" and "Unity and Diversity Council" took centre stage during proceedings. The conference finished on the recommendation that we should all listen to one another, those in other religions, and we should all listen to the NEW AGE! Perhaps the strange spiritual darkness of that conference can be grasped in the "Prayer of Togetherness" at the Religion and Cultural Diversity Conference Dinner. The lights were dimmed, there was only the illumination of one candle at each table, approximately 250 dignitaries and delegates bowed together, to the words of this "prayer":
In the presence of the ineffable Other, the Holy Being of Infinity, the Numinous Beyond, the One and the Ultimate, the Alpha and the Omega, the Unknown and the Unknowable, Lord of the Cosmos, Centre of Creation God, the God of power and righteousness. We pray to you in the immensity and grandeur of the world (et al)."
The prayer above shows how far away Australia is, in the 1990s, to the reality of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Only Son of God, who came to die for the sin of the world on Calvary's Cross. God is now no longer even knowable, He is just the impersonal energy of the earth, Lord of the Cosmos, Cosmic "Christ", the Rainbow Serpent of the aboriginal Dreamtime.
NO RELIGION CAN CLAIM ABSOLUTISM.
The conference's saw the one cardinal sin of any religion as being ABSOLUTISM. There was general consensus that all religions tended to believe that they held absolute Truth, and that all others were relative to them. This was decried as pride, refusal to embrace others, separatism which tended towards war-like aggression, bigotry and spiritual blindness. The religious leaders of Islam, Baha'i, the Quakers, Catholic and Anglican priests, Buddhists and all the rest of the eclectic crew sat passively, showing veneer accord at any rate. The atmosphere was "loving", "harmonious", people mixed together with overt graciousness and intention to sink their differences. Sadly, the New Age globalists have sinister plans for them all, just over the horizon.
INTERFAITH INSTRUCTION MUST TAKE PLACE.
The predominate recommendation was that Interfaith training and dialogue ( or indoctrination?) must be embraced by all religions. No exemptions. This is mandatory, political, religious syncretism as international law!
A bishop from Perth enlarged upon this indoctrination to me personally, as we chatted over mouth-watering savouries at Parliament House. He was thrilled with the concept of a "well" of spirituality in all religions, which, if one delved deep enough, would show that we all have basically the same faith and the same God. The conference declared a "spark of God" in every man, a "well of faith" in all faiths. The bishop then went on to affirm his belief in the apostate teachings of the New Age teacher, Matthew Fox, and Jungian psychology. How wonderful it was for me to know that the True "well" is the One who declares Himself to be the Fountain of Life, the Living Water, and who told the woman at the well that she would thirst no more if she drank from Himself, Jesus Christ, the Water of Life. Here is the One True and Unique "Well".
"But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him
but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing
up into everlasting life." (John 4:14).
At Parliament House in Melbourne, I spoke with two high level priests of the Anglican church, Archbishop Peter Hollingworth, who is a committee member of the New World Order's Commission for the Future, and the Assist.Bishop of Perth, David Murray - both are avid followers of the New Age ex-Dominican Matthew Fox. Fox who teaches that there was no Fall, no Redemption, and celebrates earth worship, adores "Mother Nature", embraces occultism, and believes in the democidal agenda of ecological "sustainable development". Fox who is a friend of the Luciferian David Spangler who advocates that all people on earth should undergo the "Luciferian initiation"!
POLITICAL AND ACADEMICS SPEAK.
The input of the academics and politicians at the World Conference on Religion and Peace in Melbourne was chillingly authoritarian. The clamour for "peace" world-wide has caused them to the take the bait of the New World Order, but peace is far from the minds of these internationalists, in reality. Nevertheless the foolish, ungodly "wise" persons at the WCRP deemed it imperative that all religions be stopped from causing war, massacre and disunity on the planet. Yes, religions were blamed for most of the earth's ills. I attended a workshop titled "Religious Fundamentalisms and Social Cohesion", address by John Bodycomb. Dr John Bodycomb OAM is an ordained "Christian" minister. "He was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for service to the promotion of religious freedom and fostering ecumenism." He was, until recently, the full-time Chaplain with the University of Melbourne.
Bodycomb's address was before approximately 20 illustrious religious and governmental leaders, which included the Governor of Victoria, Sir James Gobbo, Chairman of the Council of Multicultural Affairs; the Hon.Dame Roma Mitchell, former Governor of South Australia, and former judge of the Supreme Court of S.A.; Reverend Peter Hollingworth, Anglican Archbishop of Brisbane; His Eminence Cardinal Francis Arinze, born in Nigeria, The President of Secretariat for non-Christians and President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Member of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian unity, he has worked with UNESCO; and Dr. Adamou Ndam Mjoya, President/Moderator of the World Council on Religion and Peace/International, involved with the United Nations, UNESCO, and the World Centre of Research and Action for the New Ethics, he has held senior positions in the Government of Cameroon and is presently Minister Plenipotentiary.
John Bodycomb centred his address on a quite vicious attack, it appeared to me, on Christian Fundamentalist, because he stated that he was after all a Christian himself, and understood this form of religious fundmentalism better than others. Some of the remarks were "acted" out in a most offence manner, to myself as a Bible-based, Christ-honouring Christian. Why was I there, you might ask? How did I come to be in this amazing conference? It was by invitation only, only 350 people in Australia were invited. I was invited! Possibly because we, as an investigative organisation, had written for material to WCRP a number of times, they obviously thought we were of the inner-circle, on their team.
The following quotes come from the address by John Bodycomb, a number of other offensive remarks were made, but they are not on the notes, they were ad lib:
This is why I cannot allow that religious freedom is an 'absolute' right. I am a passionate supporter of religious freedom, but boundaries are drawn where what is believed and/or practised has demonstrably adverse effects on the wellbeing of individuals or on the good order of society....Bad religion can sanctify the worst in us; justify what is miserable and dehumanising and utterly unworthy of us...Good religion fosters inclusiveness, justice, equity and well-being for all.
So, what do we mean by this word 'fundamentalism'? As commonly used today, it is a pejorative (derogatory) term, as is the word 'cult'...Anyone we regard as blindly dogmatic becomes a 'fundamentalist'. That has not always been the case. The original 'fundamentalism was a movement early this century among Protestant Christians in the USA. It was in essence a reaction to what was labelled and denounced as 'modernism'. Modernism accepted scientific modes of explanation, including the great age of the cosmos and the theory of evolution.
It is that all fundamentalisms reflect a fear that something precious is about to be lost...Mary Jo Weaver, (professor of religious studies and women's studies at Indiana University) says, 'Fundamentals all over the world FIGHT...they fight BACK in a reactive way; for the victory of a particular worldview; fight AGAINST enemies within the group or outside it; fight WITH a chosen repertoire of sources (usually located in the past); and fight UNDER God or some other transcendent reference."
Common to all is fear, and this fear is motivation for the 'fight'. ...fundamentals resist modernity, they do not fear technology; they use modern technology unashamedly and effectively. Nor do they fear politics. ...'they use public forum, improve their rhetoric, and line up political forces - or even resort to militancy - to gain their ends.'
They (the fundamental Christians) are not afraid of science. The creationist movement in Christianity embraces science like the ANACONDA, squeezes it to fit with the preconceptions of fundamentalism - even if this means selectively ignoring some data and falsifying other data. (Here Dr Bodycomb twisted himself into the form of a snake, to make his point visual).
...fundamentalists do not fear scorn. As Marty puts it,
do not see themselves as being misfits or out of step, agents of a
Instead, they wish to be regarded as advancing alternatives which, if
only reveal the corruption of an unaccepting world.'"
(end of quote).
The attack from Bodycomb finished with these words of derision:
...Christian fundamentalism tends to provide support for those tendencies in the larger society to be authoritarian, punitive and exclusivist ---incontradistinction to the values of openness, graciousness and conviviality. Those who would bring back corporal punishment to our schools, restore the death penalty for certain offences, and marginalise those who are not like 'us', often draw a subtle support from fundamentalism, and sometimes it is not so subtle..." (end of quote).
When John Bodycomb ended his tirade, comments from the small gathering were called for. As a delegate, I rose and spoke these words (as close as I can recall):
I charge Archbishop Bishop Hollingworth with unsuitable behaviour, in this land which claims to want religious peace and harmony, with disgraceful conduct in supporting Professor Plimer in his seeking to prosecute a religion by taking Creation Science to court, in a public forum, because they believe and teach the Creation Story of their own Sacred Book, the Bible. I charge Archbishop Hollingworth with seeking to vilify the Creation Story of a religion, not another religion, but one he claims to be his own.
There is more bigotry and religious persecution against Bible-believing Christians in Australia than there is against the Jews or the Islamic people. Yet you say you want "peace and harmony" amongst the religions."
Cardinal Francis Arinze came to the microphone and supported the
of all religions to believe and teach their own creation stories, and
stand by the fundamentals of their own Sacred Books - including
Christians! He declared that the word "fundamental" was meaningless and
less than useful. It was decided
( Imagesly by Arinze) that the word should not be used to vilify others. This was declared in the Conference Summary before the whole gathering.
Archbishop Hollingworth apologised for the offence he had given to others in regard to his creationist beliefs; and John Bodycomb also apologised for his words which were seen as militant, aggressive and intolerant by myself.
There was much talk at the conference about regarding the "sacred books" of religions as precious resources and "beautiful words." The myths of the aboriginal Dreamtime, as a creation story, was regarded as spiritually alive, wise beyond science etc. Publications on the book tables spoke of the Dreamtime myths as being analogous to Genesis chapter one. The fact is, if these Interfaith 'scholars' attack one creation "story" they attack the others! Strange outcome this. And if other religions are declared to have "freedom", then these people cannot show their own inconsistency by vilifying ANY religion. (In public at any rate).
FUNDAMENTALIST ATTACKED THROUGHOUT.
There were many attacks on "fundamentalists" at the conference. The Governor General of Australia even came into battle against these "separationists". Cardinal Arinze, who has links with the Moslems, Jordan, the World Moslem League and Turkey, also had severe criticism of those who demand that their religion is "superior" to others, and want their countries to have "one religion". We live in a "global village" Arinze insisted, we should have "Unity and Diversity".
The Hon. Philip Ruddock MP, Minister for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs, addressed the entire assembly, he said:
This afternoon is not an occasion for me to become involved in a debate about what can and cannot be characterised as 'a religion'. I would, however, venture the view that, if one accepts - as Theravada Buddhism demonstrates and the highest court in this country has held - that one can have a religion which is not based on the relationship with a particular deity, it would seem clear enough that not only cultures but also the first religions of our land were those of the indigenous peoples.
...Today, it can truly be said not only that, apart from Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders, we Australians are all immigrants or descended from immigrants....
The theme and sub-themes of this Conference focus on the challenge and responsibility of best exploiting the advantages, while avoiding the pitfalls, of religious and cultural diversity at both national and international levels." (End of quotes).
A quote here from Cornelia R.Ferreira will enlighten the reader:
Plans for the formation of the UR were first revealed by Bishop Swing at the syncretic service held to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Charter. Attending the service in San Francisco's Grace Episcopal Cathedral on June 25, 1995, were representatives of all religions as well as political and spiritual luminaries like Princess Margaret of Britain, Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, the president Lech Walesa of Poland and UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros Ghali.
One might ask why a religious service (of sorts - it was permeated with consciousness-raising politics) was held to mark the founding of a political group. The answer is that INTERFAITH religiosity is now a must for important social and cultural events, especially those involving world figures, as this gives credibility and form to the concept of a ONE-WORLD religion and community."
The event held in Melbourne this July, 1997, under the umbrella of
and the Multicultural Foundation, is not an isolated religious
which only wants "peace" "harmony" and "tolerance". It is an
planned event, under the headship of the New World Order for the
of a One-World Church. Behind the scenes lurks Henry Kissinger, the
The Committee of Three Hundred, the Rockefeller brothers - and let us
forget Maurice Strong, who just "happened" to be in Sydney at the same
time as the conference! Did the Archbishop of Canterbury meet with
when he just "happened" to be in Sydney when he left Melbourne?
I should think it impossible to believe otherwise!
Who is Strong?
He is the New Age international leader who has an 10,000 acres Interfaith/political centre in Baca Grande, USA, where all the religions meet with the New World Order elitists. Henry Kissenger, the Rockefellers, Madeleine Allbright, Bill Clinton, Al Gore - and all the others meet there.
THE ONE-WORLD CHURCH IS EXPECTED TO OPERATE FROM THIS JUNE,1997.
According to UR literature, the United Religions Organisation (UR) had the launching of its written charter this June, 1997. The institution should be fully in place by June 2000, and globally operational by June, 2005. The headquarters will be at the Presidio, the former military base in San Francisco, USA. Ferreira informs us that the UR is patterned after the UN, it has a General Assembly, a Security Council and a Secretary-General, "the UR is meant to be for religions what the UN is for nations". THE GLOBAL ETHIC. The intent to get into Australian society the GLOBAL ETHIC was evident at the Melbourne WCRP gathering. All the way along, through the conference, the naive delegates were confronted with the responsibility of making judgements, contributing ideas and spiritual inspiration for an Australian Ethic. However, it was clear to this observer that HANS KUNG'S and LEONARD SWINDLER'S GLOBAL ETHIC would be trotted out eventually. I was not disappointed. Towards the end of the proceedings, the Global Ethic was cited as a wonderful example of a unified ethical tenet which could be followed in Australia. When I challenged about the lack of even the mention of God in the Global Ethic, it was gratifying to find that others there were grateful to have this pointed out to them. However, what "god" would this represent anyway, if a "god" was added to an Australian Ethic? There were a least a dozen "deities" representated at WCRP. There was much talk of a "global theology" being compiled, said as though it was a spontaneous thought that had arisen during discussions. Not so - the New World Order has already decided what that "global theology" will be - worship of Gaia Mother Earth included!
In October 1996, the second State of the World Forum, at which the UR was presented to the globe, the Global Ethic was basically decided upon. Hans Kung, a Catholic theologian, is the chief compiler of that Ethic. He said to the UN in 1991: "religions must...work with world outlooks that are not religious but that propose views on the deep meaning of life and ethics for living." The global ethic "must center on both man and universe so that HUMANISTIC and religious precepts are included."
WHAT IS HAPPENING IN AUSTRALIA AND THE WORLD?
The meeting this July in Melbourne appeared to be loving, tolerant, beautiful and religious. What we saw there was Satan appearing as an angel of light! To me, as a student of Biblical prophecy, it was as though I was looking into the very face of the Antichrist, as he spread his awesome deceptions amongst the spiritually dead! Pray for our country - religious persecution cannot be far away now! We ALL must undergo Interfaith dialogue and "education", we ALL must accept other religions as having the truth, and accept that Christ Jesus is just another version of the unknowable God. No born-again person could ever agree to such dishonour to the Lord, or accept such blasphemy - yet this will soon be our laws under the United Nations.
His Eminence Cardinal Francis Arinze said in his opening address:
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him." (1 Cor.8:5-6).
Let us finish on a sober note, from the investigative writing of Cornelia Ferreira:
Beside the many non-Christian speakers, the conference featured Fr.Gustavo Gutierrez, one of the founders of Liberation Theology (Christianized Marxism); the President of the ROCKEFELLER Foundation (WHICH PROVIDED FINANCING); Hans Kung, a WCRP international president. discredited by the Pope as a Catholic theologian, but called to present his global ethic (the Assembly sub-theme was "Isolation and Indifference: Searching for a Global Ethic"); and Cardinal Martini of Milan, who is friendly towards Masonry, who wants another Vatican Council to reconsider women's ordination... and who is promoting himself as the next Pope.
Also speaking were Roger Cardinal Etchegaray, President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, and Francis Cardinal ARINZE, President of the PontificaL Council for Interreligious DIALOGUE. CARDINAL ETCHEGARAY, AIDED by the WCRP, was the chief organiser of the first Assissi interreligious prayer meeting in 1986."
FROM THE MELBOURNE AGE, Tuesday 29th July:
Cardinal Arinze,...backed the Archbishop's comments. Cardinal Arinze, who is tipped by many to be the next pope, said living in harmony required the cooperation of religious leaders and policy makers....The conference, which was attended by more than 250 international religious leaders and scholars, ends tomorrow."
THE GUIDELINES FOR INTERRELIGIOUS UNDERSTANDING:
The April 1996 issue of "Fellowship in Prayer", had Thomas Keating's (OCSO) article "Guidelines for Interreligious Understanding". A Roman Catholic Priest, Keating's article contains revealing data on the united "spirituality" of a variety of world's religions - Buddhist, Tibetan Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Islamic, Native American, Russian Orthodox, Protestant, and Roman Catholic.
This data was gathered after several united religious meetings over a number of years. The religious leaders were in agreement on eight points, under the heading of ULTIMATE REALITY. I have listed seven, as given in "Foundation", May/June,1996:
ON A FINAL NOTE:
The time when Jesus Christ calls His Bride home cannot be far away. If the Lord tarries, we can expect in Australia the unleashing of international persecution against all those who refuse to bow the knee to the combined religions of the Antichrist. Where will you stand, beloved of God?
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten
that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting ife." (John 3:16).
Here are the simple steps to Life in Christ Jesus:
1. Admit you are a sinner, and repent before a Holy God. (Romans 3:23).
2. Accept the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross as your only hope of salvation (Romans 5:8; 6:23).
3. Take Eternal Life in Christ as a free gift from God, not by your own works (Ephesians 2:8-9).
4. By God's enabling, seek to live for God forever, trusting in His grace and mercy alone (Ephesians 2:10).
