Tony Blair Calls for World Church

February 7, 2011


NEW YORK — Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Friday that leaders in an interdependent world must work to end religious conflict or face “catastrophe” as he introduced a new foundation dedicated to interfaith understanding.

Religion is as important in this century as political ideology was in the last, Blair said. The Tony Blair Faith Foundation will fight extremism, organize faith groups against poverty and illness, and educate people worldwide about religions other than their own, he said.

“There is a new reality. We have to come to terms with it. And it implies, at its fundamentals, peaceful coexistence or catastrophe,” said Blair in a speech before religious and business leaders at the posh Time Warner Center. “If faith becomes a countervailing force, pulling people apart, then it becomes destructive and indeed dangerous.”

Former President Bill Clinton, who became a close friend of Blair’s when both men were in office, opened the event, putting his arm around the former prime minister and calling his faith “genuine” and “deep.” ( Bill Clinton is now a judge of character?)

The group’s advisory council includes evangelical megapastor Rick Warren,( interesting guess we know whose side he is on) who with his wife, Kay, advocates for HIV/AIDS victims worldwide; Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the prime minister of Kuwait; and world Baptist and Jewish leaders. Catholic Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor of Westminster, England, has pledged to join the council when the pope allows him to retire.

Yale University is a partner in the project. The former prime minister plans to teach at the school next year, leading a seminar on faith and globalization.

In a brief interview, Blair said he defined extremists as “people who want to exclude the other if someone is of a different faith.“( so in Tony’s world anyone that beleives Jesus is the only way to God is an extremist) Blair told the crowd that although Islamic extremism draws the most attention, “there are elements of extremism in every major faith.”

“It is important where people of good faith combat such extremism, that they are supported,” said Blair, who is an envoy for the Quartet of Mideast peacemakers — the U.S., European Union, Russia and United Nations.

Among the foundation’s many initiatives are promoting research on religion and globalization; ( ooooh so it is to not only promote  a one world religion but a one world government- thanks for clearing that up for us) developing interactive media and publications on religion geared for young people, businesses and political groups; and, working with the U.N. and groups such as the Malaria No More Campaign to fight the illness.

Blair said the foundation would not focus on “doctrinal inquiry” ( no for heaven’s sake lets not worry about DOCTRINE) or “subsume different faiths in some universal faith of the lowest common denominator.”

Sayyid Syeed, a national leader of the Islamic Society of North America and a veteran of interfaith outreach, said it is possible to find common ground without watering down religious teachings if the work is based on sound scholarship about each faith.

It has been done in the past and can be done again,” Syeed said.

( notice the doublespeak in the last three paragraphs)

Richard C. Levin, Yale’s president, who shared the stage with Blair and two young American Muslim leaders, said the community service programs that will be part of the foundation’s work will build a bond among young people, despite any theological differences.

“You cannot understand the modern world,” Blair said, “unless you understand the importance of religious faith.”

The bottom line is this.  We are moving towards a one world government that will be ruled by the antichrist.  We are moving towards a one world Harlot church.  The Bible confirms that both of these will occur in the last days.

    Mr Blair is trying to hide their weakness and disability to face terrorism. Mr Blair… “Maybe not all Muslims are terrorists but terrorists are all Muslims“. By dragging other religions like Chinese or Buddhism into this process WILL NOT SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM! I say, look at the right direction instead.

    To claim that “most religions were global” is an inherently nonsensical statement. If any religion were ever global it would by definition have been the only one in the world. No religion has ever been global at any period in history.

    If Tony Blair is a Christian, I’m the Pope. Also, if he ever actually bothered to read the Bible he might reflect on the passage in which Jesus declared that it was easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to to enter the kingdom of heaven, not to mention the rather important issue of the necessity of repentance for sin, but unfortunately he appears to be conspicuously devoid of that quality we lesser mortals call conscience.

    The world has seen enough death and indoctrination through religion, It will never change until we all look inside for God and stop seeking it elsewhere.
    Brainwashed people who defend their religion/faith are the first to excuse Atrocities and abuses such as torture, rape, molestation and war to name a few. I do not understand this due to having a free mind and a clear heart, why do good intended people do this? I only hope the realisation does not crush them on their death beds when they realise….It’s all a lie.

    There are only two faiths. Good and Evil. Two masters: God and Satan. Man has made many religions. But there is only one God, who sent His son, Jesus.

    tO BE ABLE TO ‘CO-EXIST’ is not the same as a “one world religion”…however, we all know that Biblically, that is the end of means like these.

    From what I gather…all these men are into ‘feelings’….How it feels now and they follow that instead of Scripture…

      Yeah how can Rick Warren agree with this, well I guess I know where he stands!

      • January 16, 2012 at 8:59 am

        Rick Warren is one of the founding pioneers of this new beastly religion ‘Chrislam’, which compromises Christianity with Islam…
