BAHA'I FAITH, AGENDA 21 & CLIMATE CHANGE
Have you ever wondered why those who promote tolerance, diversity and global governance are the first to be intolerant of those who believe in a sovereign nation and sovereign God?
Recently I received a note from a reader who had read my NewsWithViews.com article dated August of 2006 entitled, �Why are Americans Ignorant of Agenda 21?.� He wanted me to know I fell under the category of ignorant and said, �For the reason that you feel �superior� and in every sense prejudice on many levels.� He is a follower of the Baha�i faith.
The gentleman who wrote to me sent me the article entitled Ethics and Agenda 21� Implementation of Agenda 21: A Baha�i Perspective.
I actually appreciated his comment. It caused me to rethink why I believe as I do. Perhaps it is the pride I have in this country because my ancestry goes back to the mid-1600s when Dirck Van Der Vliet came from the Netherlands to Flatbush, New York. It may be the patriotism that wells up when I think of the sacrifice made by family members and others who fought to keep this great nation free.
Whatever the reason, I love the United States of America and am thankful for the wisdom of the founding fathers who looked to a sovereign God for answers when they authored the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I certainly don�t feel superior - but I do feel blessed.
What is it that globalist promoters, such as this reader, are missing? They live in the luxury of the United States, but apparently they don�t like it here and want to give us over to the global dictates and controls of the U.N.�s Agenda 21. They demand open borders and global governance. Apparently they don�t like the Christian faith and have no understanding of the importance it has played in our nation�s history.
�The Original 13� by William J. Federer is a documentary of the history of religion in America�s first thirteen states. It is a wonderful book documenting how important Christianity was to the founding of the United States.
�The New England Primer of 1777� was once used in schools to teach reading. It was totally based on the Holy Bible and the children of that day were educated knowing and understanding the importance of Jesus Christ in their lives and a Biblical worldview in governing this young nation.
America has been blessed because America has blessed God Nations who have worshipped other gods have constantly looked to our Christian nation for help. Is it by accident we have been blessed more than nations who worship foreign gods? Will God continue to bless us when we no longer hold Him sovereign in our nation?
I must admit I had not looked into the beliefs of Baha�i and did not know they were so strongly connected to Agenda 21. While their ideology sounds noble and righteous, it does not account for the sin nature of man when they envision a euphoric world of unity. Whether we like it or not, there will always be the rich and poor. And there will be those who rule and those who are ruled-- regardless of race, age or gender�and greed will always be the master.
�Baha'i was founded in Iran in the mid-nineteenth century by Mirza Husayn Ali (1817-1892). Better known as Baha'ullah, he believed that he was the prophet foretold by the Bab, a religious leader who was a direct descendent of the prophet Muhammad,� according to information found on the Beliefnet website.
Agenda 21 is a 40 chapter United Nations document the United States signed in 1992 at the U.N. Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. It lists goals to be achieved globally. It is the global plan to change the way we "live, work, eat, travel, learn and communicate" because we must "save the earth." The motto is �think globally, act locally.� In many ways, it is a religion.
"Its (Agenda 21) regulation would severely limit water, electricity, and transportation - even deny human access to our most treasured wilderness areas, it would monitor all lands and people. No one would be free from the watchful eye of the new global tracking and information system," according to Berit Kjos, author of Brave New Schools.
Municipal and county planning in the U.S. now stems from Agenda 21, although very few local officials realize where their comprehensive plans originated. Local authorities greedily take grants oblivious to the strings attached. Sustainable Development and Smart Growth are from the Agenda 21 document. Scenic and heritage programs are part of the document as well as other incentive driven �programmes� for centralized control. Much of our legislation, both state and federal, will track back to Agenda 21.
The Ethics and Agenda 21 article speaks of the �oneness of humanity.� �Recognition of this principle requires the abandonment of prejudice - prejudice of every kind - every race, class, colour, creed, nation, sex, degree of material civilization, everything which enables people to see themselves as superior to others.�
Is it being prejudiced or superior when the United States government gives untold billions of tax dollars to poverty ridden nations? Why is it so difficult to understand if the United States becomes equal to nations who are now in poverty, we cannot help them because we will also be poverty stricken and will not have the resources to share?
Education is important to Baha�i. They also reach out to females to help them become equal partners to men. But this is not unique to just the Baha�i faith and Agenda 21.
Education has always been important to Christian ministries. Mission dollars have been given sacrificially to help build schools and feed the hungry - for boys AND girls - in Africa, India or wherever there is need. Untold thousands of Christian churches and ministries, of all denominations, across this great nation have not only helped financially, but physically, to build schools and dormitories in deprived nations with the hope of teaching young men and women a way to come out of their poverty.
One ministry we have been involved with has sent farm machinery to an area where they only used hand held hoes to work their ground. This ministry has helped with the digging of wells for villages that did not have water. Medical missionaries often give up successful careers to reach out to travel to nations where there is little or no health care. Are these prejudiced or superior actions?
Many of those in these impoverished nations practice the religion of Baha�u�llah called Baha�i.
