One World Spirituality: Three Worldviews Merge
By Brannon Howse
Im a news and worldview junkie. As an adult, I have always eagerly studied cultural trends, global strategies, public policy and religious worldviews in order to better understand the times in which we live.
In 2007, I began to notice a trend. I saw politicians, religious leaders, actors, and laypeople picking various parts of three worldviews to form a new worldview. While there is nothing new under the sun, and the lie of Satan is continually being re-packaged, 99.9% of Americansincluding even Christian worldview experts and authorsare not recognizing this worldview merger.
During the spring of 2008, I called one of my favorite worldview speakers and authors and shared with him what I was seeing and proposed the possibility these three worldview were merging to form a new dominant worldview that was being embraced on a global scale. My friend did not see what I was describing, and he tried to convince me that those three worldviews cannot be merged into one. Determined to confirm what my research was hinting at, I continued to seek out worldview experts for their analysis of my theory.
So I called another friendworldview expert and author Dr. Ron Carlsonand found a fellow researcher that not only confirmed my theory but engaged me in a lengthy conversation about his research.
Dr. Carlson and I agreed that there are three worldviews that have merged to create a worldview I call One-World Spirituality. These worldviews are evolutionary humanism, Hindu pantheism, and occultism. The theology of this worldview is pantheism, the philosophy is pagan spirituality, the biology is Darwinian evolution, the economic system is socialism, their politics is globalism, and the activism of their worldview is centered on radical environmentalism and political correctness (cultural Marxism). The goals of this One-World Spirituality are a one-world government, a one-world religion, and a one-world economic system.
Evolutionary humanism denies the Creator God, and, thus, since we are all just an accident of nature, there is no absolute truth, no ultimate judge, and might makes right. Therefore, a dominant global government that oppresses dissenters is justified.
Hindu Monism and Pantheism says "All is One and All is God, and God is Impersonal". Yoga, which means "yoke or union with God" in Sanskrit, is for the purpose of becoming One with the Impersonal ALL. If All is One and All is God and All is Impersonal, then we end up at the same place. One World Spirituality says that no one can be better than anyone else, all religions must be equal and thus one can not be in heaven while another is in hell. Thus, all roads lead to God which is what we call pluralism. Pluralism is really another name for universalism.
A belief and commitment to the exclusivity of Jesus Christ in a world of religions is now politically incorrect and does not conform to the mandates of cultural Marxism. The Associated Pressed reported on June 23, 2008 that a June 2008 report released by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that 57% of evangelical church attenders said they believe many religions can lead to eternal life. In all, 70 percent of Americans with a religious affiliation shared that view and 68 percent said there is more than one true way to interpret the teachings of their own religion. Of course anyone that beliefs this is not really an evangelical Christian. However this report reveals that a Biblical worldview is now the minority worldview in America.
Pagan spirituality teaches that because we are all one, no individual or nation should be better or worse off than anyone else, and thus its economic worldview is socialism, the re-distribution of wealth.
Pagan spirituality, the worship of nature, stems from the belief of pantheism. (Romans 1:25 says, They exchanged the truth of God for the lie and worshiped and served created things rather than the creator who is blessed forevermore.)
The third worldview is occultism. Occultism encourages practices and experiences for the purpose of discovering ones Christ consciousness, divinity and, thus, ultimate salvation. It promotes the practice of talking to spirit or master guidesbeings which are supposedly more highly evolved through the process of reincarnation but which are actually demons.
Whether they realize it or not, leaders from business, government, and organized religion are embracing One-World Spirituality. Many within the Emergent Church engage in pagan spirituality, promote pantheism and globalism, and praise the economic worldview of Karl Marx.
Perhaps one of the most visible American politicians who is living out this One-World Spirituality is former Vice President Al Gore. Gore is a former Southern Baptist turned New Ager who has embraced pantheism, pagan spirituality, socialism, and globalism and who is using radical environmentalism to bring his worldview to bear on America and the world.
I am certain that the president of at least one country understands the Marxist agenda of the One-World Spiritualistsalthough Im not sure if he understands that these three worldviews have merged to form this new worldviewand he understands that the crisis they are manufacturing to implement their worldview is radical environmentalism. Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic, survived the communism and now warns the world about these peoples ultimate goal, the elimination of freedom.
President Klaus is the author of the book, Blue Planet in Green Shackles. Klaus argues that radical environmentalism is masking socialism, communism, and even fascism. Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media writes, But while communism was an atheistic system, Klaus notes, modern environmentalism has assumed a religious dimension and has become a green religion.
Kincaid goes on to write, Bush and Senator John McCain have fallen into the camp, which includes Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and most of the Democratic Party, which wants to further erode individual freedom in the name of saving the environment. It is the modern version of Marxism; from each according to his ability, to each according to his need, except the needs of the environment are now being placed above those of people.
President Klaus explains the ultimate goal is completely about power, and about the hegemony of the chosen ones (as they see themselves) over the rest of us, about the imposition of the only correct worldview (their own), about the remodeling of the world.
Klaus explains that the goal of the radical environmentalist is to completely destroy private property rights and the free enterprise system by limiting the carbon footprint of individuals and companies, growing the size of government, and ushering in socialism. Klaus told the Washington Times, I understand that global warming is a religion conceived to suppress human freedom.
So why should you care about the merging of three worldviews that form what I call One-World Spirituality? In I Chronicles 12 a specific tribe in Israel was praised as being wise because they understood the times and knew what God would have them do. God is calling all believers everywhere to expose false teaching, false religions, and the lie of Satan. Indeed, millions are becoming converts of the One-World Spirituality, and the end result will be the destruction of their very souls.
The most important thing Christians can do is to seek and understand Biblical truth. The quest to study and comprehend Biblical truth trumps all. For the mature Christian, the goal is to understand the times in light of Scripture so we can be involved in worldview evangelism, contend for the faith, expose every high and lofty thing lifted up against the principles of the Lord, and occupy until the Lord returns.
Whether adults, teenagers, or college students, Christians need to turn people from the lie of One-World Spirituality and to the Truth of the one way.

Interesting. Thanks for posting.
Wow - the Lord provides! Thanks for this week’s Sunday School lesson for my apologetics class!
Unfortunately most people dont see what is happening right under their nose.

Luk 13:26 “Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets’;
