The 2016 abomination
1986: The Start of It All
Way back on October 27, 1986, members of many different religions came together at Assisi, birthplace of the Roman Catholic “saint”, Francis, for a day of prayer for “peace”. This massive interfaith gathering was at the instigation of the pope of Rome, John Paul II. Such was the power and authority of this man that at his call, not only did leaders of various religions gather from around the world to “pray”, but three governments, and terrorist guerillas in 11 lands, held a 24-hour truce!
How well we remember that event! Although inter-religious dialogue had been going on for decades already, and even meetings between various religious leaders, nothing like this had ever been seen before. There was the pope of Rome, right at the centre of the greatest assembly of religious leaders in history! It was an interfaith Babel of epic proportions, an abomination in the eyes of the Lord.
The 1986 abomination
The representatives of each religion prayed according to their own rites. The so-called “Christian” service was led by John Paul II, the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury, Robert Runcie, and Eastern Orthodox patriarchs. These men, the whole lot of them, were not, by any biblical criterion, true Christians. John Paul II, the biblical Antichrist, head of the most iniquitous religious system to ever disgrace the earth; Runcie, head of the effeminate, spineless, facing-both-ways religious system which arrogantly and erroneously calls itself “the Church of England”; and leaders of the Eastern Orthodox branch of the false, paganised “christianity”, icon-worshippers, Soviet stooges. The god they were praying to was not the sovereign God of the Bible.
Elsewhere in the city of Assisi at the same time, Buddhists prayed mantras in a Roman Catholic “church” building, while Shinto priests chanted outside. Four Indian religions prayed together: Hindus, Sikhs, Zoroastrians, and Jains. At two other locations, Muslims and Jews prayed. And various others.
The Word of God commands true Christians to be separate from the world and from false religions, and not to unite with those still in darkness. “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? and what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? and what agreement hath the temple of god with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty” (2 Cor. 6:14-18).
Not only were John Paul II, Robert Runcie, and all those other so-called “Christian” leaders participating in a religious event with the leaders of the dark, satanically-inspired religions of the world such as Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and all the rest, but they themselves – these men claiming to be “Christians” – were unbelievers, unrighteous, in darkness, servants of Belial, infidels, and part of the temple of idols! They were not part of the true Church, the temple of the living God; God did not dwell in them, nor walk in them; they were not His people! They had not “come out from among them”, they were not separate from them, because they were as much a part of this world’s night, and of false religion, as all those idol-worshipping Hindus or Mohammed-serving Muslims! What happened at Assisi all those years ago was not Christians sinfully uniting with people of other religions to pray, but heathens pretending to be “Christians” uniting with other heathens to pray!
There were no true Christians at that iniquitous event.
2016: Three Decades On
Well, thirty years have passed. And during all this time great strides have been made in inter-religious dialogue and inter-religious “unity”. And so, John Paul II’s successor in the Vatican, the Jesuit pope, Francis I, decided to do it all again in 2016, and to re-create that moment when the devil’s religions got together and said to the world, “See? We’re all praying together for peace!”
And thus it was that Francis called for another “Assisi” – another “World Day of Prayer” – to be held in the same city. And representatives of various religions again heeded his call, assembling in Assisi in 20 September 2016 to relive the glory days. And if it didn’t quite match the hype of 1986, this was only because what was so novel and momentous back then has now become far more commonplace around the world, with “mini-Assisis” being held in all kinds of venues. Tragically, the abomination of witnessing so-called “Christians” praying together with people of various religions just doesn’t raise that many eyebrows anymore.
