The Interfaith Movement is satan's church

"15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. 16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." Titus 1:15-16

This article shows that the interfaith movement, which is satan's church. is being formed by governments, Christian leaders in name only and false religions.

1. Our Government and Other Governments Are Promoting the Interfaith Movement

We are seeing a movement from the President, state and city government and governments in other nations to promote the interfaith movement.

a)President George W. Bush
The President of the United States, who says that he is a born again Christian, is promoting the interfaith movement. You will see from the articles quoted that President Bush is not a Christian but is helping to bring in satan's church. An article titled "Bush Visits Mosque, Urges Americans To Embrace Muslims"(Note 1) states

"-- President Bush visited a mosque and bought coffee for a cafeteria full of aides on Monday as he appealed to Americans to get back to everyday business and not turn against their Muslim neighbors. In his socks, as is Muslim custom, Bush padded through the ornate mosque on Washington's Wisconsin Avenue, known as Embassy Row, and heard stories from his hosts about Muslim-American women who are afraid to leave their homes for fear of backlash after last week's terrorist strikes.......The president quoted from the Qur'an and fervently defended the Islamic faith: 'Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace, they represent evil and war.'......Bush's appearance at the mosque -- rare for a U.S. president -- comes at a time when Muslims and Arab-Americans are alarmed by threats of violence......While Vice President Dick Cheney made an impromptu walk outside to the charred ruins of the Pentagon's southwest face, Bush headed downstairs to the Pentagon cafeteria. A woman began softly singing 'God Bless America' and soon, everyone in the crowd, including the president, joined in."

We see from this article how rare it is for a U.S. President to enter a mosque and speak from their book and after to sing God Bless America. What an abomination. Another article is titled "Palau Prays With Bush At White House" subtitled "The evangelist is one of about 24 religious leaders who pray, and talk with the president."(Note 2) In this article it states

"His demeanor was very calm, very controlled, and he allowed a laugh or two,' said Portland evangelist Luis Palau, who was among two dozen religious figures summoned to a Thursday morning meeting at the White House. 'I feel great,' he told us, ' and I attribute that to the prayers of so many people.'......Palau reported that Bush said he has no fear : 'I've never felt so strong as I'm feeling now. There is a God who answers prayers when we call for help. I feel I've been sustained by your prayers. The religious delegation included Catholic and Protestant Christian, Mormon, Orthodox, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim and Hindu leaders. 'We were quite a crowd,' said Palau, who immediately recognized several other evangelical Christians, including Max Lucado, T.D. Jakes and Franklin Graham. After the meeting, the group issued a statement of support for the president."

We see the President promoting the interfaith movement with people professing to be leaders of the Christian faith following this abomination. All of these ministers must repent and have the boldness to tell the President that this is an abomination to Jesus Christ and that he, meaning the President, must repent and serve Jesus Christ only. An article titled "Dalai Lama And Bush Meet 'Like Old Friends' " (Note 3) states

"The Dalai Lama has described a meeting in Washington with U.S. President George W. Bush as "excellent," much like "when two old friends" get together for a reunion. 'I very much appreciate his human warmth,' Tibet's exiled spiritual leader told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.....The White House said Bush received the Dalai Lama as a religious leader, not a political one. Chinese Foreign Ministry representative Zhu Bangzao, however, said Tuesday that 'the Dalai Lama is no ordinary religious figure.'.........Wednesday's meeting took place in Bush's White House residence, avoiding -- as did his predecessor, Bill Clinton -- meeting the spiritual leader in official White House offices. But officials noted the meeting was more formal than any of Clinton's meetings with the Dalai Lama."

We know that the Dalai Lama is the leader of the Tibetan Buddhists. His visit with President Bush in his residence in the White House is an abomination. An article titled "President Jokes With Drew Carey, Ozzy Osbourne At White House Awards Dinner"(Note 4) states

"Bush and top members of his administration mingled and shared laughs with reporters and other Washington insiders at the annual White House Correspondents dinner. Comedian Drew Carey was on hand to provide the entertainment during the more than three-hour event, doing standup comedy for the president and more than 1,800 guests, including top White House adviser Karl Rove and rock star Ozzy Osbourne.....Osbourne and his wife, Sharon, were the guests of Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. The couple and two of their three kids are stars of the MTV hit reality show, The Osbournes, which chronicles the family's wacky, profane home life. 'The thing about Ozzy is, he's made a lot of big hit recordings - 'Party With the Animals,' 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,' 'Face in Hell,' 'Black Skies' and 'Bloodbath in Paradise',' said the president. 'Ozzy. Your mom loves your stuff.'"

Here we see that the President of the United States invited a well known satanist to the White House Awards dinner, and knew this satanists abominable albums so well that he was able to quote the title of several of them. In the 1980's, Ozzy was well known for his concerts in which he bit off the heads of doves, he stomped on little chicks, he poured pigs blood on the people, along with a whole lot of other demonic acts. Several years ago I saw a video produced by a Christian exposing rock bands. In this video Ozzy was shown in Vancouver B. C. with an idol telling people to give their life to satan. This man is an abomination and for the President to lift him up is also an abomination. Jesus said in Luke 16:15 "And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." In Titus 1:15-16 it says "15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. 16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." President Bush is as Jesus said when talking to the religious people of his day in John 8:44a "Ye are of your father the devil".

President Bush said when speaking to Muslims that "And I also appreciate the prayers to the universal God."(Note 5) For two years President Bush has held a ramadan service in the White House. President Bush has also extended federal same-sex benefits. President Bush must repent of his sins and stop promoting these abominations.

b) City And State Government
In Olympia, the capital of Washington state , two lawmakers who refused to participate in a Muslim prayer later apologized for the incident. The article titled "Legislators Make Peace With Muslim Prayer", subtitled "Cleric returns to worship before attentive state House after snub"(Note 6) states

"Two Republican lawmakers who refused to participate in a Muslim cleric's opening prayer earlier this week struck an entirely different posture when the Imam returned to commence yesterday's session of the Washington state House of Representatives. After the prayer by Imam Mohamad Joban which began with a solemn singing of Quranic verses Rep. Lois McMahan and Rep. Cary Condotta shook the cleric's hand and apologized. Joban accepted the apologies and invited the politicians to visit him at the Islamic Center of Olympia.....Condotta said he thought the prayer yesterday was "great," according to news reports. Joban said, in part, "We pray that God guides the hearts of all good people of all faiths to see what we all have in common and pray that it makes us a stronger community in nation......Attendance for the opening prayer is usually spotty, as it was Monday, the AP said, but yesterday nearly all 98 representatives stood at their desks and listened respectfully as Joban began his prayer."

In another article titled "Lawmaker Regrets Comments on Muslim Prayer", subtitled "Lois McMahan asks for forgiveness, but a colleague isn't about to" (Note 7) states

"The state House and Senate traditionally begin their daily sessions with the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer offered by religious leaders of different faiths. The Associated Ministries of Thurston County arranges the schedule."

We see from these two articles that the state government is promoting the interfaith movement which is satan's church.

c) Governments From Other Nations
The governments in Singapore and England are promoting the interfaith movement. In an article titled "Govt Reins In Religious Leaders", subtitled "Religious harmony law was nearly used when they were found mixing religion and politics, or criticizing other faiths"(Note 8) it states

"The Government came close to invoking the Religious Harmony Act on a number of occasions to stop religious leaders here from mixing politics with religion and putting down other faiths. The religious leaders stopped their activities after they were summoned and warned by the police and Internal Security Department officers. Had they persisted, the law enacted in 1990 would have been used against them, said Home Affairs Minister Wong Kan Seng in an interview with The Straits Times. ....He cited the cases involving three leaders who almost felt the Act's sting: (I will show the one dealing with the Christian pastor). A Christian pastor was warned in 1992 because he had used his church publications and pulpit to criticize Buddhism, Taoism and Catholicism.... Asked how religious harmony can be maintained, he noted that Singapore's multiracial housing and schools programmes had helped Singaporeans to be more tolerant and sensitive. Singaporeans must know that the Government will move in swiftly to nip the problem in the bud."


Another article titled "Four Religions Plan for Multi-faith School Aims to Establish a Trend"(Note 9) says

"The Church of England has thrown its weight behind an extraordinary proposal to unite Muslim, Jewish, Christian and Hindu children in the country's first multi-faith secondary school. The plans, backed by leading figures from all four of Britain's main religious groupings, are aimed at transforming the image of faith-based education which has been criticised in the wake of last summer's race riots. They hope that the 1,000-pupil school planned for the London borough of Westminster will be the first of a series of similar ventures around the country. Yesterday the church described it as a 'highly significant' development, which will open the way to a new era in relations between Britain's religious communities. The archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, has already said Anglican schools should open their doors to children from other faiths....The Church of England was embarrassed by the publicity, in view of its plans to open 100 new secondary schools. Canon John Hall, head of the church's board of education, said the plans for a multi-faith school marked the beginning of a new era. 'The new century is going to be a time when communities from completely different faith backgrounds work together and understand each other better'.......Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg from the New North London Synagogue, who has led the Jewish involvement in the scheme, said: 'We need to have an understanding of the ethical issues that concern us all, and the common search for God. At the same time, children will study their own faiths very seriously'......A spokesman for the Department for Education said: 'It's encouraging to see different faiths working together.'"

We see from these two nations that the governments are promoting the interfaith movement which is satan's church.

2. People Who Profess To Be Christians Are Promoting the Interfaith movement

We are seeing what the bible calls the falling away of the church. People well known in the Christian community are promoting the interfaith movement. In II Thessalonians 2:3 it says "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;" Also, in I Timothy 4:1 it says "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;" The false unity movement is the first step to the interfaith movement which is satan's church. (For more information see the July/August 2000 edition of The Prophetic Messenger newsletter and read the article titled " The One World Religion Is Here").

One famous minister who is preaching the interfaith movement today is Bishop Carlton Pearson. We have sent him an e-mail with a strong rebuke telling him repent but the only noticeable change is that he changed his web site. In an article titled "Charismatic Apostasy of Carlton Pearson"(Note 10) it states

"On March 7th of 2002 Charisma News Service announced that Carlton Pearson, well-known Charismatic preacher in Tulsa, OK and frequent minister on TBN, had a different gospel. Pearson said that he knew some of his views-- such as his belief that homosexuality should be "tolerated but not celebrated"--would raise some eyebrows, the newspaper said. "The religious folk want these people to go to hell," he said. After that announcement Pearson's doctrine was denounced: Three well known black Pentecostal preachers have denounced Tulsa, Okla., pastor Carlton Pearson's "Gospel of Inclusion," which questions the existence of a literal hell and espouses that everyone is already saved. (CNS 3-27-02)"

In another article titled "Keeping the Faith"(Note 11) it says

"An Oklahoma preacher whose 'Gospel of inclusion' has made his fellow clergyman decry him as a heretic remains undaunted in his belief that everyone is entitled to go to heaven....Muslims and other non-Christian believers are going to heaven, Bishop Pearson says. He also preaches there is no hell, all people are saved and Jesus Christ will not be returning to earth. All are unpopular ideas within the Christian faith....Seven years ago, the bishop began preaching his 'Gospel of inclusion.' 'Jesus came to be the door to God for everybody. I am not saying he is the only way. Muhammad has access to God. Buddha has access to God.' ....He takes comfort in writings by other mavericks, such as retired Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong, whose book Why Christianity Must Change or Die rejects nearly every central Christian doctrine. Bishop Pearson calls it a 'masterpiece.' 'I am going through the same rejections as he has,' he said. He also is listening to New Age thinkers 'because I like what they are saying.' An example is Neale David Walsch's Conversations With God, which rails against organized religion and intolerance. The bishop now is talking up TV star Oprah Winfrey, whom he calls 'the greatest evangelist' now on earth. 'She is more like Jesus than most pastors you will ever meet,' he said. 'She is not pushing a religion, but she is telling people to be spiritual. She's a cutting-edge thinker and she's touching people the way the church should but refuses to.'"

For Bishop Pearson to lift up Oprah, someone who has been living in fornication for many years and is promoting the interfaith movement, this is an abomination. In Titus 1:16 it says "They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." Pray for Carlton Pearson and other ministries who are selling their souls to the devil that they might repent before it's too late.

Another article is titled "Global Day of Prayer Urged for Iraq Crisis", subtitled "Intercessory network says the date -030303- has some special significance"(Note 12). In this article it says

"As war with Iraq seems to draw closer, Christians have been urged to join in a worldwide day of prayer, next Monday. The appeal has gone out from the World Prayer Team (WPT) network, based at the World Prayer Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., which says that the date -030303- seems to have some special significance. Churches and individual Christians are being asked to set aside at least three minutes to pray at precisely 3:33 p.m., local time."

Notice the people were asked to pray on the day 030303 at 3:33 p.m. In my prayer time I knew there was something demonic about this and the Lord Jesus Christ told me what this date and time really mean. If you put the date and time together you will get the number 666. Look at this drawing:

Picture 1


This is not by chance since the Muslims and New Agers were praying at the same time. In continuing this article it says

"The WPT appeal, being circulated widely by other prayer groups and movements, says that March 3 is also a significant date in the Muslim world, marking the eve of the Islamic New Year and the last day of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. The day has also 'gained widespread notoriety in New Age circles,' with plans for a large 'experiment into global consciousness,' says the WPT. March 3 sees the start of Gather the Women, a weeklong global initiative intended to 'harness the power and wisdom of women for the benefit of all life.'"

In these last days many people are being deceived and listening to evil spirits. We as Christians must know Jesus Christ's voice and the Holy Bible (Old King James Version Only) as Jesus said in Matthew 24:24 "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."

3. False Religions Are Promoting the Interfaith Movement

We are seeing the leaders of false religions promoting the interfaith movement which is satan's church. We will show three leaders, Pope John Paul II, Dalai Lama and Rev. Moon.

a) Pope John Paul II
In 1999 we saw the pope promoting the interfaith movement. This man has continued to promote it in every opportunity to unify all the world religions. (For more information on this see the July/August 2000 edition of The Prophetic Messenger newsletter and read the article titled " The One World Religion Is Here" and see the March/April 2002 edition of The Prophetic Messenger newsletter and read "For God Has Not Given Us The Spirit Of Fear"). In a recent article titled "Pope: Don't Let War Talk Divide World's Religions", subtitled "Pontiff works to avert U.S.-Iraq conflict"(Note 13) states

"Pope John Paul said Thursday that Christians, Muslims and other faithful should not let themselves be driven farther apart by the threat of war in Iraq........'In fact, neither the threat of war nor war itself should be allowed to alienate Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and members of other religions,' the pope said."

In another article titled "Pontiff Enters Mosque in Syria", subtitled "John Paul's visit to a Muslim house of worship is a first for a pope."(Note 14) states

"John Paul II became the first pope to enter a mosque Sunday, calling for brotherhood between Christians and Muslims and stepping across a sensitive line in his campaign for better relations among different faiths."

Also, when the pope was on tour in South America he had an Aztec who worships the devil and practices witchcraft perform with the pope on the stage. We see that pope is and will continue to promote the interfaith movement which is satan's church.

b) Dalai Lama
The Dalai Lama in his tour in the United States visited many places. We will talk about two locations: Portland, Oregon and Salt Lake City, Utah. In an article titled "Many Faiths Will Greet Dalai Lama , His Message", subtitled "Portland's diverse religious communities welcome the Tibetan Buddhist's visit as a chance to enrich their their own beliefs" (Note 15) states

"These days , the world religions are present, sometimes very visible, throughout our neighborhoods in Portland. A mosque or a Buddhist temple is just as likely to be rising in our city as a Methodist or Presbyterian church might have been decades ago.... The Dalai Lama brings to us the awareness that we're a city of many faith traditions. (Quote was from Rev. Stephen Schneider, director of Grace Memorial Episcopal Church in Northeast Portland). David A. Leslie, executive director of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, looks forward to the interfaith conversations he's sure the Dalai Lama will inspire...... 'Ignorance is probably one of the greatest destructive tools in the universe,' he said. 'It doesn't take much for the fear of the other to become tinder, kindling for an explosion. So, I talk to the Dalai Lama, I listen to him and study Buddhism. Does that make me less of a Christian?"

We see here that two people who claim to be Christians are in apostasy. In II Corinthians 6:14-18 it says "14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." There were many events in Portland to promote the interfaith movement. One of the most noticeable was the "interfaith prayer service at Congregation Neveh Shalom......with music and prayer from Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Christian and Native American traditions."(Note 15) The Dalai Lama went to Salt Lake City, Utah which is the home of the mormon church again showing how all religions are coming together to form satan's church.

c) Rev. Moon
The Rev. Moon, the leader of a cult with great wealth, is promoting the interfaith movement of which he himself wants to be leader. There is much information on Rev. Moon. If you go to the internet and go to www.google.com and type in Rev. Moon + Christian conservatives you will be shocked on who is following this cult leader. To see an entire article and web site links visit the following link: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2001/132/33.0.html and read the article titled "In Perspective: Why Are Pastors Flying to Moon?"(Note 16) from Christianity Today.

In closing, we are seeing satan use many people from all over the world to bring in the interfaith movement which is satan's church.

Memory Verses

As Christians if we want to live in victory and if we want to be able to share the Word Of God with others we must know the Word of God ourselves. Let's see what the Bible says about this. "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." Psalm 119:11. " If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." John 15:7. "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed." John 8:31. We encourage you to put the following scriptures in your heart: II Kings 4:7, James 1:20, Proverbs 18:16 , Luke 18:8, Proverbs 12:1, Colossians 2:6, Genesis 3:12, Revelation 10:7, Isaiah 40:5, John 9:6. Use only the Old King James version of the Holy Bible. (If you have any questions about this please see the book New Age Bible Versions, by G.A. Riplinger ©1993, ISBN 0-9635845-0-2.)
