The Conflict Resolution Network of the New Age has made its presence known from Switzerland to Sydney, from Toowoomba to Timbuctoo! Most of the earth’s victims actually welcome Conflict Resolution, not realizing what the network really is! The world-wide impact of this international initiative is beyond comprehension, as it spreads from person to person, city to city, country to country.
DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS “C.R”?
What it is, who devised it, why is it in everything like salt and pepper? Is there a more sinister side to “C.R.” than the average trusting soul on the street imagines? In this day of international intrigue, national betrayal, power-plays and smart-aleck deceptions, it would be very wise of the reader to find out for themselves. This is the aim of this booklet, to enlighten you, an alert from Christians who serve the Lord Jesus Christ, and honour God’s Word, the Bible.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION - where is it found, what organizations are pushing it?
CONFLICT RESOLUTION - what is it all about?
CONFLICT RESOLUTION - who is behind it?
The Conflict Resolution network is a Peace Initiative of the United
Nations, launched in 1986 for the International Year
of Peace. The United Nations Assoc. of Australia has commented...
People all have different “values”, according to C.R., these make conflict unavoidable.
In Australia the co- convenors of C.R, are Helena Cornelius and
Dr. Keith Suter.
Stella Cornelius is the director of Peaceful Relations Strategies, Shoshana Faire is also a leading facilitator.
ALL ARE NEW AGE NEW WORLD ORDER AGENTS.
Sixty odd “MEDIATORS” have been trained in Queensland alone,
to make up a task-force of those "skilled”
in the C.R. philosophies. These mediators are already being used to negotiate in small disputes, for example between neighbours or in family squabbles.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION NETWORK aims at using THE MEDIA, trained in C.R.
programs, to be “mediators”
on a grand public scale.
JUSTICE Michael Kirby, speaking on an A.B.C. tape which teaches C.R.,
showed a spontaneous burst of disquiet
when he exclaimed, “that sounds like a BIG BROTHER MEDIA”, when Helena Cornelius talked of her dream for a MEDIATOR MEDIA here in Australia! Kirby could well be right. The New Agers in this country intend to use the N.W.O. controlled media to, not only show the problems in society, but to present the solutions, using Conflict Resolution techniques.
THE C.R. NETWORK is not a minor matter, it is a problem which should
concern all those who value freedom,
justice and Godliness. THE INROADS OF C.R. INTO CHURCH ORGANIZATIONS ARE MASSIVE! MOST DENOMINATIONS ARE ACCEPTING THIS NEW AGE INDOCTRINATION PASSIVELY. Some Pastors
are training in C.R., and are spreading this poisonous brew, in preference to preaching God’s truth. If you love the
Lord Jesus Christ, an evaluation must be made of the alien philosophy, C.R..
WHAT ARE THE GOOD THINGS
ABOUT CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND ITS PHILOSOPHIES?
There are many worthwhile CONCLUSIONS reached in C.R, which are really
only good common sense.
The different teachings which lead people out of conflict into determination to “do something” about their problems.
Mapping out the needs of both sides of the dispute;
Focusing on the solution instead of playing power games;
Leading those in conflict to consider giving away some of their own
demands for rights in order to
meet the needs of the other party;
Doing away with the idea that if someone else wins, then” I” must lose.
And a number of other concepts which are quite sensible.
Satan never presents his lies without some “good” to act as sugar
to coat the pill.
Who would accept the lies, if all was “bad” without a seducing, subtle covering?
1... C.R. has the hidden agenda of the New Age New World Order woven into every part of its fabric. All the “save the earth”, “One World One Mind” doctrines, “disarm”, “trust the United Nations”, “form a One World Government”, “the green-house effect”, “values clarification”, “the deep ecology beliefs” - the whole gamut of New Age indoctrination is presented in C.R. “skills”.
2... C.R. is based on the beliefs that MANKIND has the answers within,
and GOD is not needed, nor is Christ Jesus
and His Salvation. The problems with human relations, on a inter- national or personal level, are seen as being UNRESOLVED CONFLICT, the ANSWER being for people TO RESOLVE these conflicts. PEACE will come,
if we can all resolve conflicts, insists C.R.
The above statement would only come true if people everywhere would
turn from their sin, and come back to God, through the Lord Jesus Christ.
THE NEW AGE NETWORK, CONFLICT RESOLUTION, would certainly acknowledge “a
god” in a sense, but the “god” is NOT the God of the Bible, it is the New
Age version of “god”,
the impersonal “force” or “energy”.
CHRIST JESUS is THE PRINCE of PEACE, there is no peace for those who
reject Him as Saviour and Lord. “...
saying Peace, peace, when there is no peace.” (Jer.6:14) “The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgement
in their going; they have made them crooked paths; whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.” (Isa. 59:8).
3... Conflict Resolution is NOT just a secular psychological training program, it is NEW AGE RELIGIOUS TRAINING! Hindu philosophy, Martial Arts beliefs, Silva Mind Control techniques, Jungian psychology, Eastern Mysticism, Yoga breathing, meditation, centering, altered consciousness and even more are all taught by C.R.. ALL of these are NEW AGE religion!
4... C.R. teaches the terrifying ENERGY or FORCE beliefs of the N.W.O. Antichrist system! God warns of this Latter Day “god of forces” in the Book of Daniel (Dan. 11:38). ”THE SHADOW SIDE of us binds the energies,” teaches C.R., “we are only energy, that’s all we are.” No, reader, we are NOT made of an impersonal “force” or “energy”, we were created by the Lord God Almighty, we owe our existence to HIM.
5... C.R. teaches the “WIN-WIN” concept, that is the belief that conflict
resolution should aim at having everybody’s needs met. What we really have
here, when the concept develops past the everyday squabbles of individuals
into the conflicts on an international scale, is DESTRUCTION OF GOD’S JUSTICE.
Why is this so? Because JUSTICE, in dealing with disagreements, is replaced
with NEEDS GRATIFICATION. The populace of the world is actually being trained
in “skills” which will be used to cause them to accept the totalitarian,
evil rule of an occult N.W.O., which hates
the laws of God. The law of... “Do as though wilt shall be the whole law”, espoused by the Satanists, is seen in the enlarged concept of, “Win-Win”. No longer “right and wrong” but how can we all be satisfied in this resolving of conflict.
6...C.R. is NOT just a training program for peace amongst family members, neighbours and local organizations. C.R. is a global-wide network, massive in its influence which has immense political crunch. New Age socialists, World Federalists, the Club of Rome, the Secret Brotherhood of the N.W.O., New Age communities and facilitators in power here in Australia and throughout the world, Luciferian networks - all are caught up with this evil C.R. network. And no wonder, because it originated at WINDSTAR, the New Age centre in the USA, directors JOHN DENVER and THOMAS CRUM, who are New Age international leaders.
7...Conflict Resolution has political “heavies” pulling the strings
from behind the scenes. C.R. peddles the cart for organizations of New
Age world-changers, groups who are ANTI-CHRISTIAN, and which worship Hindu
adore the earth Goddess, Gaia, invoke the “masters” to bring about the Luciferian “Plan” on the earth, and who are subversively seeking to usher in THE AQUARIAN AGE.
Just a few of those who control and push the Conflict Resolution HORROR DECEPTION are..
Dr. Keith Suter...
NWO, New Age Socialist,
Uniting Church minister,
Member of the Club of Rome,
United Nations Assoc. of Australia,
Co-convenor of C.R. Network,
foundation director of Trinity Peace Network in Perth,
Former writer for Communist activists.
Etc...(ad infinitum ad nauseum...)
New Age activist here in Australia;
Director of Peaceful Relations also New Age activist leader; etc., etc.
Main Convener Conflict Resolution
also New Age activist leader;
worshipper of Hindu gods, Kali etc.
C.R. insists that all must appreciate that everyone has their own “values”,
and these differences often cause conflict.
We must learn to “let people hold the beliefs and values we do not believe in” , say the C.R. Trainers. Now this is a really loaded statement, when one realizes that here is NOT just an instruction for Mums and Dads in a family situation. Remember that C.R. is impacting schools, colleges, the business world, governments, nations in international dispute and is immensely political. C.R. is teaching, from the grass-roots level upwards, the “skill” of MERGER, merging all religions into ONE, all belief systems into ONE. UNITY AND DIVERSITY. C.R. tells its victims that beliefs and “values” are subjective and relative, live and let live, there are NO ABSOLUTE TRUTHS, NO ABSOLUTES ABOUT RIGHT
OR WRONG. It is all what one CHOOSES to believe!
The Conflict Resolution has no real SIN or WRONG DOING. The occultist,
follower of poltergeists, channeller,
Carl Jung, psycho - therapist, is much admired by C.R. trainers.
SIN is seen by Jung as... “THE SHADOW part of us which we deny”, “the unconscious dumping its stuff.”
The answer to SIN becomes acknowledging MY NEED. The answer for everybody
MEET THEIR NEEDS! Why would society deal out JUSTICE to poor suffering ones who are not SINNING, not DOING WRONG, but are only expressing THEIR NEEDS, which should be met!
The VICTIM then, must grant to those who are in CONFLICT with them their
rights to their own beliefs,
own values, and the right to have their NEEDS met. Remember, C.R. is in jails!
“VALUES” ARE FEELINGS !
This ideology about “values” which is exploding through society today, is turning people into SELF orientated, FEELING-BASED, New Age mind-set ONE WORLDERS. Instead of learning to base their lives on the wonderful
facts of God’s Word, the Bible, they base their lives on decisions made by FEELINGS. Not what does God say, but what do I feel.
WHOSE SIDE WILL YOU, THE READER, CHOOSE?
Is your answer for this life and for all Eternity, The Lord Jesus Christ and God’s Word - or is it the New World Order’s perverted “Win-Win”? Do you follow the instructions in God’s Word which lead to peace and joy - or will you accept the NWO’s false “peace” plans?
Will you say “NO!” to all efforts to subversively cause destruction to JUSTICE and ABSOLUTE TRUTH - or will you passively join forces with those who would teach the whole world that there are no EVILS only NEEDS? Occultists who teach the Luciferic ideas that peace can come through right resolving of conflict, not through repentance, receiving Christ and yielding to the Almighty, Sovereign rule of God.
THE CHOICE IS OURS...
1... On a relationship, person-to- person level.
To begin, I would like to describe a scene in a school-room. The teacher
is trained in C.R., her motives are praise-worthy. Don’t read my comment
at first, evaluate the philosophy behind the application of C.R. for yourself
initially, after biblical standards. (Our thanks to Kathleen Hayes, `Trumpet'
, for the idea behind this outline.)
“Jane, did you complete your homework assignment?”
Jane ... ............“Yes, Miss Jones.”
Miss Jones... ..“Sue, have you completed yours?”
Sue.................. “Yes, Miss Jones.”
Jane..................[with hand up]
.........................“Please Miss, Sue didn’t do her homework, she took my book before school and copied mine.”
Miss Jones..... “Sue, is this true?”
Sue... ...............“Yes Miss Jones. But I wanted to watch a T.V. show last night and I couldn’t get my homework done.
..........................I needed Jane’s homework."
.........................“She stole my work, she is a thief.”
Miss Jones... ..“Just a minute, Jane, we should meet to resolve this. Both be in my office after classes this afternoon.”
The New Age NWO wants to merge all religions into One, Unity and Diversity, Syncretism. This means that the expression of the Christian towards any pagan, occult, cultish, Satanic or anti-biblical organization or religion which is “judgemental” in the eyes of the New Age is considered detrimental to world peace! In the “Win-Win” concept, the Christian Church will be expected to allow ANY religion to have their “own values and own beliefs”, and to actively help them in any “conflict” of doctrine et al, to WIN!
God, however, plainly declares...
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me....thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them...” (Exodus 20:3-5).
The evils of the religions of the world are revealed in Romans chapter one (read the whole chapter)...
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God,
neither were thankful; but became vain
in their imagination, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” (Rom.1: 21-22).
The Christian Church is called of God to expose the works of darkness, not to help them WIN. “Win-Win” can never work on a religious level because there IS evil, there IS error, there IS counterfeit religion and there IS Satanic delusion which must be fought, not accepted and encouraged.
“If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive
him not into your house,
neither bid him God speed. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” (11 John 10-11).
On the international level, the United Nations is the main weapon of war being waged against a sleepy, apathetic, trusting world populace. The would-be world rulers, the Secret Brotherhood of the New World Order, the World Federalists, the powerful, fantastically wealthy elite, wants to make their soon-coming take-over smooth and peaceful. To do so, it is imperative that the populace be trained, like animals, in the correct attitude to that take-over. Conflict Resolution is one of the major “skills” which are being used to prime the masses into non-violent compliance with the NWO Plan. That is why it is being taught to millions across the planet, the numbers are growing like a plague!
Imagine this scenario. A national government wishes to reject the UNITED
NATIONS’ regime, and the Global Village concept. They are instructed to
implement the “skills” of C.R.. They must let the “Win-Win” principle reign
there is no rights or wrongs, only needs. The world “needs” the take-over, in order to save the planet. There is no
“wrong” philosophies, aggressive resistance is denounced as peace-destroying. The VICTIMS of the conquest by the
UN dictators become, by this process, the evil protagonists who refuse the “Win-Win” peace action.
In the NEW WORLD, the society will make its own “LAW”... after its own “values”.
One simply cannot “win”, in reality, if law and order are to be maintained.
A criminal is WRONG, not NEEDY!
He/she may quite well BE needy, but that is not the conflict with society and God, the conflict is DOING WRONG.
Of course the murderer cannot “win” if justice prevails, he/she must be punished for their wrong against society,
the Lord God Almighty has commanded that it be so.
Can you really imagine the concepts of “allowing everyone their own
values and beliefs” to apply to a sexual pervert,
who becomes a child-abuser and killer? How could such a person be allowed to “win”, or to have his “needs” met
(unless there was repentance and a turning to God, who could meet the spiritual needs, of course).
CONFLICT RESOLUTION’S leaders
are TOP-NOTCH FACILITATORS,
NEW AGE SOCIALISTS with a CHANGE-AGENT POLITICAL PLAN.
HELENA CORNELIUS and STELLA CORNELIUS constantly travel
to countries across the planet, they liaise with
UN officials, New World Order global workers and Australian activists who are working for New Age “change”.
These leaders, working with Club of Rome member, Dr. Keith Suter, Wesley Mission, Uniting Church, are not the lily-white innocents that they are painted to be! The Pegasus Network, computer network of the New Agers, mentions their names quite often, also the C.R. organization appears constantly on EarthNet conferences.
THE USE OF HOMELY ILLUSTRATIONS.
The C.R. network makes good use of simple, down-to-earth examples to get across their message. Stories are used to teach their “skills” which lull the duped into feeling safe, non-threatened, and in familiar territory. The examples in C.R. are about daughters who want to borrow Mum’s blouse, or two children wanting the last orange, or back-chat over the evening meal with Dad. This style of communication is a well-used one in the New Age New World Order indoctrination process. These agents view us as “the masses” the “peasants”, and treat us to the style of communication which suits us best, which will lead us into ONE MIND pleasantly and easily.
THE FOLLOWING PAGES CONTAIN EXCERPTS FROM THE DESPATCH MAGAZINE, BACK

NEW WORLD ORDER’S, CONFLICT RESOLUTION NETWORK.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION -
The Conflict Resolution Network is a Peace Program of the United Nations Association (Australia). It is a national campaign to develop, reach, and implement conflict resolution skills for personal and professional effectiveness. Simple Guide to Resolving Conflict...
To begin, I would like to describe a scene in a school-room. The teacher
is trained in C.R., her motives are praise - worthy. Don’t read my comment

THE CONFLICT RESOLUTION NETWORK,
a programme from U.N.A.A. is a PEACE PROGRAMME of the United Nations.
It is supposed to provide a
Well that is what the literature from C.R. points out to us!
A CALL FOR U.N. YEAR OF CONFLICT RESOULUTION.
In New York recently, Helena and Stella Cornelius taught a seminar in Conflict Resolution skills to middle level professionals at the U.N. During this time, a Candaian Conflict Resolution colleague, Ernest Tannis from Ontatrio, Canada, flew in to meet them to hold discussions on possiblities of a UNITED NATIONS INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF CONFLICT RESOLUTION - "UNICRY"
ADVERTISEMENTS FOR CONFLICT RESOLUTION COURSES
BY ‘THE RELAXATION CENTRE’ BRISBANE, 1990. Sunday 8th April, 1990, 9.00 am- 5.00 pm.

This course is about participation and offers a living and practical approach for better, more rewarding relationships, both at home and at work. Fee: $50 including material. Booking essential. N.B. - we already have advanced courses!"...(end of Advert.)
The HUMANISTIC ideals are obvious of course in all this C.R. initiative, but the dangers are enormous as we contemplate the whole programme before God. As humanists and Christians, Marxists and occultists combine to find out how everyone can win, righteousness and evil, justice and injustice, repentance and rebellion merge into a grey mist of confusion. Here we have again the Hindu idea that good and evil are meaningless terms, all is One and equally of value. The New Age connections are shown blatantly on the literature available on C.R. Such N.A.M. heavies as John Denver, the Assistant Secretary-General of the U.N., Dr. James Jonah, DK Prakismani of Global Co-operation for a Better World etc. are all quoted in the literature. How about this quote from the information that John Denver supports C.R.:
“Windstar" (Denver Foundation in Colorado) will create a series of inspirational events. These include the MAGIC OF CONFLICT and HIGHER GROUND. THE MAGIC OF CONFLICT, with Tom Crum, supports people and organisations in seeing conflict as a magical opportunity to grow and to strengthen their lives and relationships. HIGHER GROUND educates people about some of the specifics relating to population, hunger, the ARMS RACE, the environment, society and human issues.” JOHN DENVER SUPPORTS C.R. Tom Crum and Tyler Norris, Windstar Director, will be here in Australia in April 1989 to run workshops.
C.R. is an associate course with PEACE STUDIES. Peace Studies are virtually
an initiative to produce passivity, non resistance, a “lie down and give
up” mentality. In the Conflict Resolution material, letters to the editor,
put out in 1989, a Professor Benjamin Ferenoz has an interesting letter
extolling the virtues of C.R. Important work for world peace ...
"You have succeeded in infiltrating the arena where Conflict Resolution techniques are most sorely needed...We are all passengers on a small planet..." writes Prof. Ferenoz. He comments in the letter on the delight of seeing the editor
(Liz Ferguson, NEW AGER) and Helena Cornelius, NEW AGER (a director) at the United Nations.
One of the conveners of this programme in Australia is DR.
KEITH SUTER, who pops up everywhere...
Lectures at Theosophy meetings, a New World Order man, U.N. Official, high in social service work in the Uniting Church here in Australia and writes for New Age magazines in this country etc.
C.R. IS NOW AT MACQUARIE UNIVERSITY.
Conflict Resolution, a new area of study for universities, is now available at Macquarie University for the first time this
year and is being taught within the School of History, Philosophy and Politics by Dr. Greg Tillen.
“More than thirty students have enrolled”. Dr. Tillen commented. “Conflict Resolution is interdisciplinary, drawing material from a range of areas, including psychology, anthropology, sociology, politics, law, management philosophy, history and social work.” ....the United Nation’s Association of Australia has long sought recognition at tertiary levels of conflict resolution as an interdisciplinary subject, highly relevant to many professions.
....the Conflict Resolution Foundation at Macquarie University, among the objects of the Foundation are:
* to enable Macquarie University to make an institutional contribution
on conflict resolution to other universities
and teaching institutions.
Conflict Resolution is the creation of THE INTERNATIONAL CONFLICT RESOLUTION NETWORK of the U.N. aiming at making a society non-resisting, willing to want peace at any price - and to evolve sitting ducks!
Our society is permeated now with this humanistic, world-war three weapon.
Everyone is getting in the act, from Women’s Mental Health groups to Universities
and churches. The ATTORNEY GENERAL, Dean Wells, is very
much involved. BUT, the biggest blow to freedom yet infiltrated into this country so far by C.R. are the “MEDIATORS”.
The State Government is appointing 60 “MEDIATORS” in Queensland who
will be stationed in various areas all over
this State to `help’ those in conflict to resolve. T.A.F.E. will be used to train Mediators for the purpose of inflicting C.R. on our population.
Can you picture the day when your non-Christian neighbour and yourself
have a disagreement, and the neighbour calls
for the Mediators to resolve the conflict? Do you imagine that justice, as you know it, will prevail?
How about school, work-place, social, family and even church conflicts?
How are you going to like mediators being
called in to resolve the problems? Can you imagine righteousness, or prayer, or even fairness coming to the fore?
THE WHOLE WORLD IS CRYING FOR PEACE and SAFETY.
As men contemplate the horror of what the increased knowledge of mankind can create, the ever increasing moral decadence which mankind indulges in (and the resultant plagues brought upon this planet), the obvious havoc brought about by the very nature of man shown blood-red in the violence of this globe in rebellion - then the citizens of planet earth want PEACE. Peace between neighbours, peace in families, and peace between countries. They have all had enough! BUT, no peace is possible without PEACE WITH GOD through our Lord Jesus Christ! And rejection of the Saviour continues.
The Lord God is saying:
What this world really needs is...
WORKING OUT GUILT WITH THE ALMIGHTY;
SEEING THINGS FROM GOD’S VIEWPOINT; JUSTICE; RIGHTEOUSNESS;
TRUST IN THE LORD JESUS WHO ALONE BRINGS PEACE;
THE BRAVERY TO STAND UP AND DEFEND OURSELVES IN THIS WAY FOR THE MINDS
AND SOULS OF MANKIND;
LETTING THE WORD OF GOD AND THE HOLY SPIRIT BE THE ARBITRATOR, AND THE
OF LIFE. JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MAN, AND CERTAINLY
BETWEEN MAN AND MAN AS WELL! He alone can bring peace into our lives.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION IN THE SCHOOLS
C.R. skills are gradually moving into the schools. Here are details of contact with a few schools we know about, but there are probably quite a few more that we might hear about for the next newsletter...
Jan Burnley of the International School at North Ryde, Sydney organised a conference on Conflict Resolution, Keynote Speaker was Professor Dalson from Victoria.
Angela Rossmanith also of the International School, is introducing C.R. skills to 50 students there. They are training to pilot a peer-modification scheme which has been adapted to suit Australian schools from a U.S. model. She is also training teachers who will be involved in putting the scheme into practice in the first weeks of Term Four. She is very pleased with the support the scheme is receiving and has promised to report in its success in the next newsletter, which would be invaluable.
She is already receiving reports that some students labelled as troublemakers by some teachers have been noticed by those same teachers to have improved their general attitude enormously. It confirms our theory that troublesome kids are often kids with a very high standard of fairness. They see what is unfair but before conflict resolution skills, didn’t know how to fix it appropriately.
At Gosford High School, an Approved Studies Course in “Communications”
is being planned for Year 11 next year,
one of its four major components being a section on Conflict Resolution.
In State schools, a big step forward is the Department’s recognition
of C.R. workshops as an acceptable way to spend
a Staff-Development Day.
Pupil welfare, staff welfare and a “new look” at the vexed topic of
discipline, are all areas where a C.R. day would be invaluable. If you
are reading this and would like to organise such a day for your school
your regional Staff Development consultant would be able to tell you how
to go about it. Infants learn to use C.R. Skills. Lyn Marks, Counsellor
at the Emanuel School at Randwick, is excited at the progress being made
to introduce C.R. skills to both staff and pupils.
She organised an in-service program for the staff and with their input has designed a program feasible for the school. Emphasis at the moment is in the Infants School in the Social Studies curriculum. It will also be included in the peer support program in High School. This means that Year 9 will have Conflict Resolution at the end of 1987 in their 3 day peer support training. Then in 1988 they will be ready to implement Conflict Resolution in their work with Year 7.
She is also planning to use C.R. in their Personal Development programme for year 9.
Across the road, at Randwick High School, Jenny Moalin is also in action with a Conflict Resolution program for teachers. She will be introducing Conlict Resolution into Personal Development in 1988.
Susan Russell and Ros Strong ran a workshop for teachers at Belmore North Primary School.
Let’s not forget to mention the Curriculum Development materials being produced by Frank Hutchinson and crew in the Department of Education. Once published these will make a very significant contribution to peace education using a cross curricula approach.
Anne Spruce who recently attended the Teachers’ workshop in early October
has reported immediate success in introducing C.R. skills into their Personal
Development classes with several low year 9 groups. She is using the Starter
Class Exercises - you can purchase these from the C.R. Head Office for
$3 - and finding how well the classes respond to making their own discoveries
about resolving conflict situations. “The kids have welcomed this new approach”,
Anne says, “because they themselves recognise how much conflict they have
in their lives - conflicts with their friends, their peers, their teachers,
their parents and the community”. Anne is also finding that other members
of her staff are wanting to find out about Conflict Resolution in the classroom.
The list goes on and on. What a joy to have so much to report that we can’t
report it all.

SUCCESS AT THE COMMUNITY LEVEL
Conflicts resolved on Housing Estates...
Stephanie Pillora, social worker in an community - based organisation, the Peninsular Estates Network, funded by the Department of Housing is putting C.R. skills to use in five housing estates in the southern Randwick area of Sydney.
She described the problems faced in these estates: "Neighbourhood disputes are common, particularly conflict between the older and younger members of the estates. Police are often called in with complaints of noise, loud music, harassment, fast cars and motor-bikes etc."
Realising that no positive work in the community would be achieved until conflicts were resolved, Stephanie initiated in one of the estates series of interviews that culminated in a meeting between older and younger members. In Stephanie's words... "It was my first attempt at negotiation-and it worked!" Each side stated it grievances and then each made a commitment to start working together. Now the older people are supporters of a move by the younger group to get a youth centre established and they are also involved in running youth activities in the holidays. The police are also impressed with the changes. They are used to throwing up their hands in despair at the vandalism costing the Department of Housing thousands of dollars each week. Now they are finding that in the estates where young people are trying to organise themselves vandalism has been reduced. Older residents, too, are find that instead of punitive action and calling in the police, talking with the young people always produces results.
Stephanie is also incorporating C.R. skills in a training course she is at present drawing up for resident committees on the estates...This is linked Conflict Resolution in action !
C.R. & Bikies...
In the dispute involving the bikies both police and Council were having difficulties making a significant impact on the situation. John McCarthy was invited in to mediate between the residents and the bikies. The task is not an easy one. Dislike by the residents towards the bikies is inordinately high and so far has made open communication impossible. John would love to hear any suggestions you've got.
Taxation...The Australian taxation office is bruhing up its image. Conflict Resolution techniques are rapidly changing the way staff relate to each other and to the public..
hA publication of the Peace Studies Curriculum Group has devoted their March issue to Conflict Resoulution. The emphasis is on Conflict Resolution in schools and icludes Conflict Resolution through crosswords using a word/graph grid and an interesting simulation exercise for senior, secondary and TAFE students.

MEDIATORS... re info anti-biblical conflict resolution `Despatch'...March,1991...p.23
How does Mediation Work?
1. Contact the Community Dispute Resolution Service by telephone and
discuss the case with the Co-ordinator.
2. The Service will then contact the other party by letter, followed up by a phone call. If both parties agree to mediation, the mediation session will be scheduled within 10 days at a time convenient to both parties. Sessions can be scheduled for daytime, evening or weekend.
3. At the mediation session each party will have the opportunity to tell their side without interruption. Our trained mediators will help the parties discuss their differences and will work with them to explore all the options for a possible solution.
4. When the parties reach a settlement, the mediators will write out an agreement. The Agreement is signed by both parties and is considered a contract that both parties decide to honour.

“MEDITATION FOR MEDIATORS”.
"GRAVE NEW WORLD" ... by Kathleen R. Hayes and S. Smith.
"....The second way to prepare students for one-worldism is by training them in CONFLICT RESOLUTION. It has gained wide acceptance in school districts across America. What many people are unaware of is that it generally begins with the practice of centering - sometimes a deceptive synonym for meditation. It is accepted that once an individual is in a meditative trance or an altered state of consciousness, he is more susceptible to suggestion and to compromise. The other feature of Conflict Resolution is to break ego barriers. Ego is seen as a block to sharing. So, first the disputants are centred, meaning they are relaxed and calmed down or very open to suggestion. Next, they learn that any effort to hold out or resist is a sign of an out-of-proportion ego that must be trimmed down.
In the book "Creative Conflict", Author, Christopher Hills has written... “If we began using Creative Conflict (conflict resolution) in schools, businesses, families, small groups, eventually it would filter into our society and into our government. How much more fulfilled we could be if that could happen NOW! But how impossible when resistance among strong, entrenched egos abound."
A sense of self preservation is a built-in device which enables us to be spontaneous, alert and operating with a greater presence of mind. But New Agers do not want that. They want an open mind, receptive, anxious to avoid confrontation, totally trusting and certainly not logical." ... extract only !

Children at Extreme Risk. by Dennis Postle CONFLICT RESOLUTION...with the compromises entailed in order to bring about a “Win Win” resolution lead into the denial of Godly absolutes and justice. Here again self-esteem on both sides is seen as the greatest need and benefit for all - and of course, peace at any price. Emotional competence is needed, we read, to create a new form of compromise called “synergy”. This technique is elaborated upon with maps and charts and action plans. All quite confusing; very hard for an average person to evaluate (impossible for a non-Christian without the Word of God as a light), it appears good sense and professional..."

CONFLICT RESOLUTION NETWORK
~WINDSTAR ~ BARBARA MARX HUBBARD & SHOSHANA FAIRE.
The Conflict Resolution Network of the New Age is almost unimaginably
huge, internationally and in Australia.
As a part of this Network “The Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies” [C.P.A.C.S.]
University of Sydney, was formed. CPACS is currently at work on two projects: [President, Dr. Keith Suter]
THE NEW WORLD ORDER:
AND THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE NEW RIGHT IN AUSTRALIA.
What is the “New Right” .... a good question to ponder?
Should you wonder whether “THE NEW WORLD ORDER” mentioned is the NEW
AGE “NEW WORLD ORDER”
[it is, by the way], a few interesting details may enlighten you further. Shoshana Faire & The Conflict Resolution Network. In 1988 “The New Age News” Vol. 2 No. 7 reported the visit of Shoshana Faire [New Age Director of Sydney C.R.N.] to the massive New Age Centre “Windstar”, Colorado, co-founders John Denver and Thomas Crum. There she met with speakers such as BARBARA MARX HUBBARD [Global Citizenship], former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. New Age `guru’ of occultish frame of mind [whose astonishingly violent intentions are spelt out in the next article...not included in this booklet] Hubbard is an international New Age teacher.
Said Shoshana Faire...
Conflict Resolution Network is a New Age destruction device - used to smash the absolute morals, laws and justice of the Sovereign God, and replace them with the “Win-Win” ethics of humanistic global society. It is an adhesive network used to bond individuals and countries to the New World System.

oz.announce: Conflict Resolution Trainers for Russia. Status... RO Press release.
On May 18, 1992 Helena Cornelius, Director of Training at the Conflict Resolution Network in Australia and Pyotr Patrushev, senior consultant with the Network, will commence their two-week tour of Russia to promote the work of the emerging local Conflict Resolution Network in Russia and the CIS.
Their trip coincides with the publication of the Russian translation of the Australian best-seller EVERYONE CAN WIN, written by Helena Cornelius and Shoshana Faire. The 100,000 copies of the book will be printed through the joint efforts of the Russian Peace Defense Committee and the publishing venture “Komby-7”. The book includes an introduction by leading Russian eye surgeon and businessman, Svyatoslav Fyodorov, and popular writer of children’s books Yuri Yakovlev. The Conflict Resolution Network was set up in Australia some 5 years ago as an information sharing system of people and organizations who want to develop, implement, teach and learn Conflict Resolution Skills. Many thousands of people throughout Australia and around the world regularly tap into this Network through its mailing lists, training programs and self-help literature and courses. Hundreds of trainers have been prepared by the Network to work more effectively in their own organizations, schools and communities. A university course and a research centre has been set up at Macquarie University in Sydney to provide for academic training of future specialists in Conflict Resolution.
For the last two years, following reports in the Russian press, the Network received around 2 thousand letters from all regions of the former USSR. All were answered, and both English and Russian language materials were sent to support the emerging efforts to start a Conflict
Resolution Network in the CIS.
The political and economic turmoil of the past 12 months and the not always successful attempts to resolve them though negotiation rather than confrontation has shown the great need for Conflict Resolution skills in the former USSR. These skills are valuable in times of rapid change and collapse of many old structures. The emerging legal framework alone cannot be expected to cope with the many disputes and disagreements which arise during such times.
The publication of the Russian versions of EVERYONE CAN WIN and the meetings with relevant individuals and organizations by the two Australian experts are times to support this emerging recognition by the business community, the politicians, the teaching professionals and the public.
Helena and Pyotr will visit Moscow, St. Petersburg and Novgorod during this trip. In the CIS, all inquiries regarding their visit should be addressed to Mr. Boris Kondrashov, Palekhskaya Street, dom.21, kv. 137, PS I will be unable to use E-mail till my return on June 4, 1992.
The Meeting Place, Nambour's Neighbourhood Centre, now has a community
magazine for the entire Sunshine Coast.
A government funded New Age centre, it has a Women’s Health Worker, a Child Abuse Prevention Worker.
NEW AGE EDUCATION JARGON - WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Extract... from above article...
Item 5 - Conflict Resolution - page 52.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION ...
“Win-Win - no loser”. Must be willing to compromise one’s values based on the situation, e.g.
“Get off your viewing point to a point of view,” advises Thomas Crum’s " THE MAGIC OF CONFLICT curriculum". In other words, compromise your values [viewing point] to reaching a consensus or solution [point of view]. Page 62 mandates the DOE to write guidelines for teaching in all schools.
What should you do?
Avoid co-operation with Conflict Resolution and its "skills" . It is
a Network of the New Age New World Order~
this is a plague~ Do not allow yourselves or your families to be contaminated. Christians do not need the Godless
New Age to instruct them, as though God's instruction was lacking in some way...
The Church gave away the `honour and need of counselling' from God's
World by handing itself over to Psychology
& Psychiatry... now it is giving away its `mandate' to lead people to Christ, and to help them find His glorious answers
in their `daily walk', by embracing Conflict Resolution...for what did Christ Jesus die?
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." (II Cor.11:14)
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable
for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good
works." (II Tim.3:16)
The entire content of C.R. indoctrination is GODLESSNESS! It is based on the beliefs that mankind is SELF-SUFFICIENT, that mankind is GOOD. In C.R. the only "god" which is supposed to be is in All, Nature is supposed to be God!, This is PANTHEISM - PAGANISM.
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
1....MANKIND HAS FALLEN IN SIN.
2....FALLEN MAN is in conflict and lacks peace because he is SEPARATED FROM GOD (spiritual problems).
3....FALLEN MAN is in conflict with other human beings because they are sinners, and so is he. He is SEPARATED FROM PEOPLE because of sin and self (relationship problems).
4....FALLEN MAN is in a fallen world, NATURE IS FALLEN. (environmental and physical problems)
5....FALLEN MAN is in CONFLICT WITH HIMSELF, he is in SEPARATION FROM HIMSELF (soulish problems)
6....GOD IS PERSONAL, HE IS THE FATHER IN HEAVEN FOR ALL THOSE WHO TRUST
and who are SAVED.
IS SPIRITUAL MEANINGLESSNESS & DEATH
When we do not base our salvation and life-plan on God and His viewpoint, we encounter meaninglessness and spiritual death, we die as persons. C.R. leads to these horrible conclusions, this is why we must expose and renounce it!
As Lawrence J. Crabb Jr. has written...
LEAD THE LOST TO CHRIST
Go to God and ask Him to give you an intense love for souls. (I John 5:14-15; Phil. 4:19). The Holy Spirit will supply this love for souls, who are going to a lost eternity. If you really do not care, and desire only to resolve conflict, then your spiritual state is at a very low ebb! CRY TO GOD, resist the devil, who seeks to make you ineffective in the spiritual battle. the Lord Jesus Christ has an intense love for souls who are lost, live closely to Him. If you live intimately, constantly in His glorious companionship, He will impart a great longing to win people for Him. (Matt. 23:37; Luke 19:10)
ESTABLISH THE GOAL OF CONFORMITY TO GOD'S WILL
By God's grace and strength, you can establish the goal which is the only on which leads to life and peace. What should that every-day goal be? Conformity to God's will, as revealed in the Bible. The KING JAMES BIBLE is the preserved, pure Word of God, in it are the only treasures of truth. All else, which is in CONFLICT WITH THE REVEALED WORD is fearful error.
ARE YOU IN CONFLICT WITH GOD'S REVEALED WILL BECAUSE OF INVOLVEMENT WITH C.R.?
THEN RESOLVE THIS BY REPENTING!
(Psalm 119:9-10, 89, 105, 113-120; II Timothy 3:13-17.)
~RESOLVE THIS CONFLICT TODAY~
There is only one way to resolve the conflict of sin against God. REPENT of that sin, TRUST IN CHRIST JESUS as your SAVIOUR, RECEIVE HIM into your life.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.”
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
(Romans 5 : 8).
“For whosoever calleth upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
“DEAR GOD ALMIGHTY,
I know that I am a sinner, I come to You now, to turn from my sinful ways. I believe that Jesus Christ died for the sin of the whole world, mine included. I believe that He took the punishment that should have been mine. I accept that sacrifice on the Cross as full payment for my wrong doing. Come into my life Lord Jesus, and give to me your free gift of Eternal Life. I bow to You as Lord and Saviour, and will seek to serve You forever. AMEN”
