Three magnificent structures have risen out of the Middle Eastern desert. On March 1, the doors to the Abrahamic Family House, also called the One World Religion Headquarters, officially opened in Abu Dhabi. This property includes a Muslim mosque, a Jewish synagogue, and a Roman Catholic church.
This destination is designed to allow people of any faith, or of no faith, to have space to worship, fellowship, and reflect. That may sound desirably harmonic until we examine what must be given up in order to come together as one.
Revelation 13 describes the world coming together as one in worship during the Great Tribulation. The opening of this property brings us closer to that reality than ever before. It is chilling to think the Antichrist could stand upon the grounds of this very property as he proclaims his devilish agenda to unite the world in worship.
How will people fall for such a scheme during the Great Tribulation? The world is being primed to think this way right now. How? Notice three core values of one-world worship:
One-World Worship Emphasizes a Works-Based Spiritual System.
In the name of kindness and inclusivity, doctrine is downgraded and good works are elevated. The message becomes, “Peace on Earth will only be a reality when we learn to set our differences aside and work together for our global family.”
This kind of statement divorces truth from righteousness. But is that possible? The Bible answers emphatically, “No!” Isaiah 59:14 reveals, “And judgment is turned away backward, And justice standeth afar off: For truth is fallen in the street, And equity cannot enter.”
When God’s absolute truth is rejected, so, too, is justice, righteousness, and equity. Interestingly, the word translated “equity” literally means “straight.” C. S. Lewis famously argued in his classic book Mere Christianity, “A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line.”
The quest for peace, justice, and righteousness without absolute truth is a dead end. How can any spiritual work be called “good” without God’s absolute standard of truth and goodness? How could we say, for instance, that murder is wrong without having a standard outside of ourselves to establish this truth?
Humanity’s insistence to create good in our own eyes, even when it goes directly against God’s standard, is as old as Adam and Eve. God specifically warned Adam not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in Genesis 2:17. By the time we reach Genesis 3:6, Eve saw the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil as “good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise.”
Adam and Eve decided to call “good” what God had warned them to avoid. They thought they were making a wise decision, but they soon realized how foolishly sinful their thoughts were. Their sinful thoughts created sinful desires which produced sinful actions.
As the one-world spirituality approaches, we see the same old trap being set.
One-World Worship Emphasizes Human-Centered Worship
Adam and Eve decided to become their own standard for right and wrong. In so doing, they shifted the center of morality from God to themselves. This attitude has plagued humanity ever since. Even among church-going Christians, there is a temptation to seek out worship that focuses on us instead of on God. This is one of the subtle pitfalls of the modern Church Growth movement. Anything that centers worship on humanity instead of God is thoroughly unbiblical.
The One-World Worship System Promotes Self as the Center of Worship
They preach, “Follow your heart. Find your truth.” But they are stepping into the same old trap. One-world worship emphasizes spirituality over religion.
Modern humanity is much more willing to identify as spiritual rather than religious. Religion implies you want to differentiate yourself from others, but spirituality implies you want to embrace a vague “higher power” without any religious baggage.
This attitude has won the hearts of many people, but it is another trap.
To be sure, humanity has committed atrocious and ungodly actions in the name of religion. Merely being religious never has and never will make one right with God. However, that is not the central issue at hand.
Claiming to be spiritual is a modern effort to escape absolute truth. The spiritualist says, “If Christian spirituality works for you, great. If Judaism works for you, great. If Islam works for you, great. If agnosticism works for you, great. As ‘you do you,’ we all will get along in peaceful harmony.”
This postmodern pragmatism led to the building of the Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi. People the world over are willing to spend millions of dollars to invest in this harmful philosophy.
Anyone who claims to know the truth is labeled as narrow-minded. However, truth is always narrow and exclusive. Consider a simple math problem for example. What is 4 + 4? Can I make up any answer I wish and still be correct? Can I determine this truth for myself? Is it any number other than 8? Certainly not. Truth is narrow and it excludes all other wrong answers.
The one-world worship system wants Christianity minus Christ, but Christianity minus Christ equals nothing. If Jesus is not God, the New Testament and the church would not exist. If Jesus is not God, He is not worthy of worship. If He is God, He alone is worthy of worship as God. Either He is “the way, the truth, and the life,” or He is not (John 14:6).
Let’s stop pretending there is another option.
The Antichrist will use these one-world worship core values to gain the allegiance of the world. The opening of the Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi advances this agenda as our world draws closer to the end times with each passing day.
