To my readers: Our long-time "Rich of Medford" known in real life as Richard Peterson and I have held many long and serious conversations on New World Religion developments. One of the three main goals of the New Age Movement that I have observed and documented starting with my discovery of same in 1981 is their push for 3 main items:
- 1. New World Order
- 2. New World Religion
- 3. New world messiah -- one they cheerfully for the most part admit is NOT Jesus.
Alice Bailey wrote at length in her The Externalisation of the Hierarchy about these aims. The New World Religion and a shared belief in interconnection of everything and "the only sin is the sin of separation" were central, she said, to the world's coming acceptance of "The Reappearance of the Christ".
Richard Peterson has rightfully observed that courageous Archbishop Vigano has been giving solemn warnings that this may now be occurring with help from the present head of the Holy See -- the Vatican -- Pope Francis. I invited him to use my forum to convey his perspective on Archbishop Vigano's recent statements and actions.
Archbishop Carlo Vigano Sounds New World Religion Alarms
by Richard Peterson (Our 'Rich of Medford')
Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò penned this warning that the Deep State and Church will bring about a
new world religion and order. His piece struck a chord with me. It verbalizes much of what I had previously
written regarding interfaith initiatives and religions’ role in the war against
terrorism. The Alliance of Civilizations
and its implementation partners advanced themes such as religion would be used to
dismantle undesirable religion; the separation of church and state would be set
aside; religious exclusivists would be forever banished.
I am not Catholic, both the internal and external pressures Viganò writes of
soon will affect all of Christendom. They
already have. Apostasy within Protestant
denominations with its war upon fundamentalism has been fully on display for
quite some time. We need to take
Viganò’s warnings seriously. What
happens within the Catholic church will reverberate across Christendom and carries
with it implications for all.
we living in the end times? I think we
are. Sean Kelly, professor at the
California Institute of Integral Studies, believes so too as he writes we are
living in the end times. His perspective
is Biblical only in the sense that what he prescribes for remedy is what
Revelation 13 – 14 warned us not to do.
Kelly’s book Becoming Gaia, On the Threshold of Planetary Initiation
proposes a salvation rooted in technological convergence – a singularity –
which will “pull the earth away from the abyss.”
Viganò sounds the alarm that Pope Francis has engaged in a war upon the
church’s traditionalists. In this war,
he says, the pope is doing what he does best:
demolition. Ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant,” making a
wasteland and calling it peace:
“His dual role
as pope and liquidator of the Catholic Church allows him on the one hand to
demolish it with decrees and acts of governance, and on the other hand to use
the prestige that his office entails to establish and spread the new religion
over the rubble of the old one.”
warning conveys a sense of urgency which I’ve similarly observed in recent
writings of other Catholic traditionalists; the same sense of urgency conveyed from
an era when the church experienced harsh persecution.
traditionalist is Archbishop Schneider.
His piece The Gift of Filial Adoption (The Christian Faith: the only valid
and the only God-willed religion) is a response to Francis’ signing of the Human Fraternity Agreement which places Christendom on equal
footing with the other world religions.
Apostles and the countless Christian martyrs of all times, especially those of
the first three centuries, would have been spared martyrdom, if they had said:
“The pagan religion and its worship is a way, which as well corresponds to the
will of God.”
authority on earth – not even the supreme authority of the Church – has the
right to dispense people from other religions from the explicit Faith in Jesus
Christ as the Incarnated Son of God and the only Savior of mankind with the
assurance that the different religions as such are willed by God Himself. “
Francis’ inclusiveness permeates well outside the bounds of religion itself. Karen Armstrong of the Alliance of
Civilizations, I suspect, had a sense of satisfaction as she published one of Francis’ heretical
demolitions on her Charter for Compassion website that atheists need not worry about hell. The Charter for Compassion was launched by
Armstrong as a means to provide religions with “guidelines” on how we are to interpret
those “religious texts which are being abused.”
Armstrong is especially hostile towards Christianity. She attributes scriptural abuse to those who
look upon Jesus as divine. Armstrong’s theology includes arguments such as the Biblical God is a lying

people with little knowledge of doctrinal issues understand that we have a
Catholic friends have voiced to me suspicions that Francis is the “anti-pope”
whom they identity as the same false prophet from the book of Revelation. Viganò expresses this same chilling suspicion
as he critiques the new world religion and state as operating along parallel lines:
“On the other
hand, constructing a media version consistent with the system, to be repeated
ad nauseam in order to indoctrinate the masses, is the recurring element not
only in the ecclesiastical sphere but also in the political and civil sphere,
so that it appears with disconcerting evidence that the deep church and deep
state are nothing other than two parallel tracks which run in the same
direction and have as their final destination the New World Order, with its
religion and its prophet.”
current condition plagues not only the Catholics but Protestants as well. For quite some time now evangelical Christianity
has engaged in a courtship with the state.
The word escorts may better describe the faith leaders who engage in
need only look at some of the more prominent interfaith initiatives to observe the
conjoining of church and state. The Abrahamic Family House, for example, is funded by the United
Arab Emirates and has the full support of the Vatican and Alliance of Civilizations.
The German government and EU have reportedly contributed $37 million toward
House of One’s $57 million price tag. House of One’s
board has a strong political presence.
Christian Science Monitor cites a House of One’s agenda item as:
“It’s urgently necessary to
enlighten the religious-exclusives, those people who believe their way to God
is the only right way. This project forces them to question those thoughts, and
to think about diversity within religion”
if we are not near the prophetic end-of-days era, Christendom appears to be headed
down the same dangerous path it had travelled once before. From history we have a range of warnings from
which we may heed; from Dietrich Bonhoeffer to Mit brennender Sorge, the latter being read out from
Catholic pulpits across Germany during a time of heavy persecution.
race, or the people, or the State, or a particular form of State, or the depositories
of power, or any other fundamental value of the human community - however
necessary and honorable be their function in worldly things - whoever raises
these notions above their standard value and divinizes them to an idolatrous
level, distorts and perverts an order of the world planned and created by God;
he is far from the true faith in God and from the concept of life which that
as back then, Christendom resembles the same makings of Germany Christianity whereas
the religion had only a veneer of Christianity.
Apostate and Theosophically-influenced the religion became unrecognizable. Today, as then, I expect we’ll see a split
among the faithful.
Archbishop Viganò’s warning suggests the hour is
late. Future messages may well resemble
those from the prior era. Again, from
“At a time when your faith, like gold, is being tested in the
fire of tribulation and persecution, when your religious freedom is beset on
all sides, when the lack of religious teaching and of normal defense is heavily
weighing on you, you have every right to words of truth and spiritual comfort
from him whose first predecessor heard these words from the Lord: "I have
prayed for thee that thy faith fail not: and thou being once converted, confirm
thy brethren" (Luke xxii. 32).
