Rise of one-world religion

To the Editor:
Dr. John McTernan said sports had become a huge idol in America and coronavirus deflated and brought it down. An idol is defined as a person or object of intense admiration or love. Pride and self-worship Perry Stone called America’s great evil and coronavirus humbled Americans. The Bible says there’s coming an end-time one world religion.
The globalists like the Pope have pushed for a new world order and world religion for years. The world religion the Pope and other globalists support is the Noahide Laws. It isn’t Biblical, but it sounds like it is. The end-time world religion probably will be the Noahide Laws. The Bible says the end-times will be “like the days of Noah.”
According to mainstream Jewish tradition there are seven laws God gave to all mankind. These universal commandments according to Jewish tradition are known as “The Noahide Laws” or the seven laws of Noah. These laws are referenced in the Jewish Talmud: “rabbis taught: seven precepts were the sons of Noah commanded: social laws; to refrain from blasphemy, idolatry, bloodshed, robbery, and eating flesh cut from a living animal.” In mainstream Jewish tradition, the non-Jews who observe these seven laws are known as “Noahides.” The Dictionary of Judaism in the Biblical Period defines “Noahides” as: “Non-Jews who observe the seven laws that apply to the descendants of Noah (namely, all people). According to rabbinic authorities, these include the following prohibitions: idolatry, adultery and incest, bloodshed (murder), blasphemy, robbery, social injustice and eating the flesh of a limb cut from a living animal.”
In the middle ages, influential Jewish teacher, Rambam taught that Noahides would inherit eternal life on the basis of their belief in the God of Israel and their observance of these seven laws. Today’s rabbinic Judaism teaches that Noahides which are non-Jews who observe the seven traditional laws of Noah will have a place in the world to come. The doctrine isn’t compatible with the teaching of the Bible as it concerns salvation.
All people, whether Jew or Gentile, the Bible teaches that we only inherit eternal life by grace through faith in Israel’s Messiah, Jesus, not by observance of any commandment or laws. John 6:28-29 says, “Then said they unto him. what shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom God has sent.”
Satisfying God doesn’t come from the work we do or laws we keep but from whom we believe. As Ephesians 2:8 says “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your doing; it is the gift of God.” John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou has sent.” So eternal life requires a personal relationship with Jesus and not keeping laws. Walter Veith and Martin Smith spoke out against the Noahide Laws. Jimmy DeYoung spoke out against the Noahide Covenant and said it’s dangerous for a person who claims to be a Christian. Jewish experts on the Noahide Laws say Christians can’t be Noahides unless they deny Jesus. You can’t be a Christian unless you believe Jesus is the Son of God and the second person of the Trinity. The Christian and Bible supported belief is that there is one Godhead of three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To Jewish leaders and Muslim leaders this Christian belief is considered blasphemy to the oneness of God and prevents one from becoming a Noahide. After this becomes the end-time world religion those don’t become Noahides will probably be killed. Most Americans don’t know the Noahide Laws was recognized and endorsed by the U.S. Congress by H.J. Res 104 at 102nd Congress in 1991. See Public Law 102-14, 102nd congress 1st session, H.J. Res 104. I love to hear the songs about the blood of Jesus because it alone removes my sin. Jesus said clearly in John 14: “I am the way, the truth and life. No one comes to the Father (Heaven) except through me.” It’s Jesus plus nothing.
