MADISON, Wisc., Dec. 7 /Christian Newswire
/ --Interfaith meetings continue at a great rate all over the world. Many religious leaders will descend at the UN Copenhagen Climate Conference this week. Plus, the Parliament of the World Religions is occurring at the same time in Melbourne, Australia.
The underlying desire of government leaders at the Copenhagen conference is to form a world government. A treaty will most likely not be signed at this current conference, however, Christians need to wake-up to the fact that eventually this could happen.
Despite questionable climate change research, religious leaders are using the Copenhagen meeting to further their cause of promoting an eventual world religion to go along with a world government.
According to USA Today, 100 "religiously affiliated representatives" from the USA will attend the Copenhagen summit according to Tyler Edgar, assistant director for the environmental arm of the National Council of Churches. Hundreds of religious leaders are projected to attend from different parts of the world.
Former National Association of Evangelicals vice president Richard Cizik will attend. He was forced to resign his NAE position. Rowan Williams and Desmond Tutu will be there. Williams is the leader of the Church of England and of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Tutu is a Nobel Peace Prize winner and South African minister.
Also, this week, the Parliament of the World Religions conference will happen at Melbourne, Australia. Speakers will include former President Jimmy Carter, the Dalai Lama, and Dr. Joel Hunter.
Jimmy Carter is no stranger to interfaith meetings as he has promoted many false religious leaders over the course of his life. The Dalai Lama promotes reincarnation and other false Buddhist teachings as he is a popular religious figure.
Dr. Joel Hunter is pastor of the Northland Church in Orlando and is on the board of the National Association of Evangelicals. He is a member of the President's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, advising President Obama on policy issues.
The Parliament of the World's Religions is sending a 60-meter-long scroll inscribed with thousands of messages of support to the UN Copenhagen Climate Conference.
Christian leaders who promote interfaith goals without telling people that Jesus Christ is the only way to God are doing a disservice to the body of Christ.
Rick Warren spoke at the July 4th Islamic Society of North America's annual convention in Washington, D.C. this past summer. During his message, he did not mention that Jesus Christ is the only way to God. He claims that he is reaching Muslims with the gospel. Where are the Muslim converts to Christianity through his ministry?
By this simple omission, people are deceived into thinking that all religions reach the same God, which is clearly false according to the Bible. According to John 14:6, "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.'"
