SYNCRETISM
By Open Door Ministries

For although they
knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their
thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although
they claimed to be wise, they became fools… Romans 1:21-22

Satan has led many quasi-religious groups to unite around a mixture of
religious teachings and then brand honest Christian believers as
bigots for clinging to salvation in Christ alone. An outgrowth of the
postmodern era in which we live is that many people no longer believe in absolute truth.
A natural extension of this lack of absolutes is the widely held view that
there is good in every religion and all roads lead to
heaven. Individuals can then pick and choose the elements they wish from
whatever faith and mix them all together. This is true syncretism.
Chuck Colson refers to its impact on our faith as “salad-bar Christianity!

Satan is delighted when people believe and expound on his lies. He does not
want anyone to know the truth and come to a personal relationship with
Jesus who is the truth, the way and the life (John14:6). Jesus is the only
way.

One man reportedly traveled the world to find one name for God that would be
universal and bring all people together. Instantly the word love came to
his mind. He later wrote, “Give God the universal name of Love and we will
create a golden cord to tie together the truths of all the religions of
the world.” But love is not God’s name. It is His nature. And God expressed
it most fully when He sent His Son to die for our sins (John 3:16). Only
when we accept Christ’s sacrifice for us will we know the love of the one
true God that can bind people together.

few years ago, an inter-faith group of 10,000 people met at the Vatican in
Rome. The group included the Pope, the Dalai Lama and Muslim Imam W. D.
Mohammed. An outspoken Hindu woman was quoted as saying, “It was refreshing
to note that the idea that all religions have universal truths, and are
merely different paths to the same goal was accepted as a given from the
outset by all delegates without a single dissenting voice.”

The same delegates also endorsed a general condemnation of “aggressive”
proselytizing. This is the prevailing thinking of our day and age. Satan
will do all he can to cause this thinking to even invade the church and
individual Christian thinking and action. The end result of syncretism
in free societies will be anti-conversion laws and a prohibition of Christian
witnessing. The euphemism for this law will probably be called
“religious freedom.”

RESPONSE: Today I will guard carefully against the deceptions of Satan
leading to syncretism.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to fix my eyes on You and Your Word today so that I
will not stumble. 

 

The Tower Of Babel
Norman Watson


When I read the
devotional above, the Tower Of Babel came to my mind, and the one world
religion that the Bible mentions. Many Christians believe there can not
be a “one world religion,” but that is precisely what the catholic
church has been working on from the beginning when the Roman Emperor
thought of and formed the “Catholic” church. One World Religion is
in the definition of what the word “Catholic” means, which is
“universal Church,” and this was the agenda of Constantine and is
the agenda of the “Catholic” church today. Even historical facts are
witness to this. I encourage you to become knowledgeable of the historical
information that is readable and available on the internet. Here is a
video link you should watch to help you get started. https://youtu.be/tNv-zzpIwBs 

The “Catholic” church is been very hard at work forming what they
call the “interfaith” counsel; it consists of the leaders of the
four major religions of the world, “Budist, Hindue, Musilium, and
Christians” Please Look at the following links to gain knowledge of the
“interfaith” https://youtu.be/qoVxUa5henM here is another
link when Pastor Joel Osteen, Mormon Senator, Other US Leaders Meet With Pope
Francis in Rome https://www.christianpost.com/news/pastor-joel-osteen-mormon-senator-other-us-leaders-meet-with-pope-francis-in-rome-video.html

There will be a “one world religion,” and Pop will be its leader.
 However, the Catholic church does not use “one world
religion.” They use another word which is “Ecumenism”
Read this link from the Catholic Exchange, which is Catholic news and
education none profit – https://catholicexchange.com/what-is-ecumenism/
it has and is the goal and purpose of the “Catholic” church to have
only one “universal”
Church at all costs, including but not limited to deception and even war (The
Crusades is one example).

Please read the following as they give us a warning to yet another attack
called “syncretism
https://www.christianpost.com/news/america-under-threat-from-syncretism-george-barna-says.html
and here is one more you can read https://www.takeheed.info/pope-francis-and-syncretism-all-roads-leading-to-god/
and many of you have seen the word “coexist” this is part of “syncretism“.

Lastly, AI and Robots are also part of this “one world” system.
This technology will enforce and deceive the world into following the “one world” order,
as was proven by the covid “pandemic” Many followed what the
government said. Many churches closed their doors, and now things will
never return to what “normal” was like before because many believed
and welcomed what they were being told by the government,
medical “experts, and media, and still are. Many will embrace AI,
Robots, and technology as good and helpful things but not realize that they
are only a frog in a pot that is slowly cooking. 

I hope that this will encourage you to be alert and aware of the deceptions
and Sceams of Satan. Satan has and is working through world governments
as well as the church. There will be a remnant consisting of the true
followers of Jesus, and as Satan’s attacks get worse and more intense
many “Christians” and “church” will fall away from
Biblical truth and will follow Satan into hell, where there will be for all
eternity torment according to Revelation 14:10-11 ESV “He also will
drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his
anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of
the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their
torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night,
these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of
its name.”
