Robert Muller's Spiritual Renaissance
Hearkening back to the Herescope posts a few weeks ago about the on-going neo-evangelical dalliance with futurists, more interesting information of relevance has come to light.
Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General to the United Nations, and cohort of Willis Harman (previously the subject of many Herescope posts), and well-known Luciferian futurist and Theosophist, has been closely associated with evangelical leader Jay Gary. For complete documentation on this important point, see http://www.erwm.com/EvangelicalsandNewAgers.htm, in an article entitled "Evangelicals and New Agers Together" by Warren Smith.
Therefore, it is of relevance to examine Robert Muller's "vision" for the future. His "vision" was published in a little mongraph entitled Framework for Preparation for the Year 2000: The 21st Century and the Third Millennium, (Schweitzer/Quinnipiac Studies, 2, 1994). This document contains "A World Peace Plan for 2010," which, by the way, can now be found on the Internet at http://www.goodmorningworld.org/peaceplan/. It also includes "Recommendations for Action by the World Community," and "The State of the World on Earth Day 2013," among other topic headings.
"The State of the World on Earth Day 2013" was derived from Robert Muller's message to the Parliament of the World's Religions (Chicago, 1993) and presents a plan to create a "World Spirituality Agency . . . working with UNESCO and with all world organizations . . . " to stand "in the forefront of human progress and evolution in the education, information, enlightened democracy, transcendence, and fulfillment of the miracle of human life and its contribution and responsibility in the overall ongoing cosmic evolution of our planet." [emphasis added]
This World Spirituality Agency, in Muller's "vision" will set up a "World Spirituality University" to develop "a science of spirituality, a universal strategy for spirituality and a methodology of spirituality derived from all relious practices, celebrations, and rites around the world, aimed at the spiritual fulfillment and responsibility of human beings." [emphasis added] Obviously this "science of spirituality" parallels the work of Willis Harman discussed on previous Herescope posts. Indeed, while Harman was alive, the men worked together on many global futurist organizations and agendas.
Muller goes on to predict,
"As a result the world is in a new period of full, flowering spiritual Renaissance, far beyond inter-religious dialogue, based on the common spirituality, religiosity of all religions and on a common denominator of all human beings: the yearning for answers to the mysteries of life and of the universe, to which scientific analysis, our checkered history of local cultures and national divisions, the millennia of religious dissections of the spiritual nature of humanity, of the earth and of the cosmos, have now given way to a new age of universality, holism, and all-encompassing synthesis and synergy."
The extent to which Robert Muller's future vision parallels that of neo-evangelicals today is very troubling. Muller's close association with Willis Harman, and Harman's strategic inroads into the evangelical Consultations on the future in both 1977 and 1979, lead one to suspect that these similarities are no accident.
The terminologies of ecumenism are being broadened more and more by the new vocabulary of neo-evangelicalism. The new "synthesis" and "synergy" (Muller's choice of words above) is rapidly becoming broad enough to include other faiths, which is what Muller envisioned.
But Scripture clearly warns about this. There is a stage-by-stage progression downward that starts with abandoning the doctrine of separation from heresy and ends up at human sacrifice. It is no accident that Muller, along with all of the other global futurists (including, sadly, many evangelicals present at the 1977 and 1979 Consultations) has always been a big promoter of global populations controls, which includes abortion. Muller states that the new World Spirituality Agency will practice "rites" from all world religions. Some pagan rites include human sacrifice.
From Scripture we learn that the end result of any broad new ecumenicity always leads to abandoning the value put on human life:
34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:
35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. (Psalm 106)
