Former UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair has created the Tony Blair Faith Foundation to unify the world’s religions. Blair is especially interested in promoting the benefits of globalization to Christian churches.
There are a number of prominent American ministers who have endorsed his Tony Blair Faith Foundation with its emphasis on globalization or global government. In Revelation we read about this coming one world religion and the False Prophet who unites the world’s religions in order to bring peace to Planet Earth under the rule of Antichrist.
It is interesting that one of the primary focuses of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation is not only to unify the different religions, but to specifically promote the benefits of globalism or global government to evangelicals. A number of well known evangelical leaders have signed on board.
Tony Blair writes in his article seeking to Understand Faith and Globalization that “at a certain point each (religion) is in communion with each other.” So one would have to ask the question what is the communion between militant Islam, Judaism and Christianity? Suicide bombers? The often stated theology from militant Islam is death to Jews and Christians. So where is the communion?
Tony Blair says:
“The global community — 'it takes a village' as someone once coined it is upon us.”It is difficult to understand how Blair would not know that the “someone,” who coined the term “global village,” was the world famous Canadian communications theorist Marshall McLuhan. Blair goes on to say:
“Examine the impacts of globalization. For a moment right and wrongs. Just look at its affects.”Here in America we know the affects of globalization. We were told that NAFTA and GATT would bring enormous economic benefit to both Mexico and Canada. Americans lost jobs and entire industries packed up and moved out of the county. NAFTA and GATT were devastating to the Mexican worker, and the Canadians are unhappy about how it has hurt their economy.
Across the world we are in a global financial meltdown with United Nations Climate Control Treaties designed to transfer trillions of dollars in wealth from the U.S., Great Britain, France, Australia, South America and Asian nations.
The current economic crisis appears to be a planned crisis to bring in a globalized World Socialist government, which is what Tony Blair really seems to be promoting.
In order to accomplish that goal, there must be massive wealth redistribution and a consolidation of economic controls by some kind of new “International Federal Reserve System” or, as the world leaders are saying (as they are reading from the same script), “a new world financial order.”
The recent G20 Meetings in London were an elaborately staged production with world leaders posing and smiling in front of the cameras and all reading off the same page. Outside where carefully orchestrated demonstrators, financed by the same people who financed the meetings of world leaders inside the G20 Meeting. How can you say that, some people may ask? Because the exact same verbiage that was used inside the meeting was used by demonstrators outside of the meeting. The demonstrators and world leaders were both saying “capitalism is dead,” “world currency,” “a new world financial order” and so on. Even Hugo Chavez was reading from the same script when he called for a “new world order,” which was exactly what they were calling for inside the meeting.
But there is one small problem to their agenda. In order to bring in their new world financial order, new world order and global government, they have to get the churches and leaders of various religions on board. But, as Blair and his backers understand, getting “Evangelical Churches” to sign on to globalism is imperative because many of them are pro-Israel and exert a certain degree of influence over certain demographic groups.
Around 1919, when the League of Nations began to fail, the proponents of globalization recognized that one of the primary reasons they failed was that they did not get the Protestant Churches to go along with their program. The international banking interests behind the push to global government realized that they needed to sell the “Evangelical Church” on world government. So eventually they brought in a man named John Foster Dulles, whose brother was Allen Dulles, who was director of the CIA under Eisenhower and Kennedy. Allen Dulles was responsible for the highly sophisticated social engineering and “mind control programs” popularized in movies like the “Manchurian Candidate” and “The Bourne Identity.”
In 1937, John Foster Dulles strategically met with the heads of over 30 different denominations, along with prominent ministers and heads of seminaries. He had millions of dollars to finances his agenda, and his goal was to get “Evangelical Churches” on board with a world government through creating the theology of “social justice.” So whenever you hear preaching and teaching or an emphasis on the theology of “social justice,” it is important to remember that this was introduced into the church by a non-believer whose goal was globalization.
We are on the precipice of a new world financial order, a cashless society and global government. Once again, the forces behind globalization understand that they need to recruit the churches in order to make the transition. The Tony Blair Faith Foundation, the prominent evangelical ministers, and religious leaders of other religions are part of globalization strategy. If you want to know where this all ultimately ends up, read Revelation chapter 13.

Tony Blair is preparing to launch a "faith offensive" across the United States over the next year, after building up relationships with a network of influential religious leaders and faith organisations.
With Afghanistan and Iraq casting a shadow over his popularity at home in Britain, Blair's focus has increasingly shifted across the Atlantic, to where the nexus of faith and power is immutable and he is feted like a rock star.
According to the annual accounts of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, a UK-based charity that promotes cohesion between the major faiths, the foundation is to develop a U.S. arm that will pursue a host of faith-based projects. The accounts show that his foundation has an impressive — and, in at least one case, controversial — set of faith contacts. Sitting on some £4.5m in funds as of April last year, mostly gathered through donations, it is now well placed to make its voice heard.
The foundation's advisory council of religious leaders includes Rick Warren, powerful founder of the California-based Saddleback church. It attracts congregations of nearly 20,000 and is reportedly one of the largest in the United States. Warren, who has addressed the UN and the World Economic Forum in Davos, has been named one of the "15 world leaders who matter most" and one of the "100 most influential people in the world."
His influence was confirmed in December 2008 when Barack Obama chose him to give the invocation at his presidential inauguration. But the decision angered many liberals, who see Warren as an opponent of gay rights and abortion on demand; a prominent alliance with Warren is likely to attract similar attacks on the former British prime minister.
Also on the council is David Coffey, president of the Baptist World Alliance (BWA), a Virginia-based network of churches that spans the globe and is particularly active in the U.S.
Another initiative has been to team up with the Belinda Stronach Foundation in Toronto. Unknown in the UK, Stronach, daughter of a Canadian billionaire, is hugely influential in Canada, where as a philanthropist, businesswoman and former politician she has served in both the Conservative and Liberal parties. Attractive and barely into her 40s, media commentators have dubbed her "bubba's blonde", a reference to her friendship with Bill Clinton. According to the accounts, Blair intends to open an office in Toronto to develop the relationship.
His desire for North America to be the focus of his faith-based operations was confirmed by the decision to hold his foundation's inaugural event in May 2008 in New York, for the "charity's key partners and religious stakeholders."
The accounts also shine a light on the close connections the foundation now enjoys with major political institutions in the U.S.
"With the Washington-based Centre for Interfaith Action, the foundation supported a meeting of major international organisations active in faith-based approaches to combating malaria (plus the White House, World Bank, UN, World Health Organisation) to co-ordinate international efforts," the accounts state.That Blair, a charismatic politician driven by faith, should be at home across the Atlantic is no surprise to political analysts.
"He comes across as confident and persuasive," said Professor Shawn Bowler, of the University of California at Riverside. "He does not talk like a modern robo-candidate in the way so many U.S. political figures do."Unlike in the UK, Blair's religious fervour is seen as a strength.
"Blair is very open about his faith and that plays a lot better in the U.S. than in Britain," Bowler said.But the overtly religious dimension has drawn criticism.
"The Tony Blair Faith Foundation is a fundamentally flawed concept," said Terry Sanderson, president of the National Secular Society. "If religion is constantly at the fore, then the old suspicions and hatreds will continue to fester."Other North American faith-based initiatives endorsed by the foundation include the New York-based Global Nomads Group, which brings together young people through video conferences "to discuss the global issues that affect their lives," and the Faiths Act Fellowship, which selects "30 young leaders aged 18-25, drawn from the different faiths from the U.S., UK and Canada to embark on a 10-month journey of interfaith service."
Blair's status is such that he is now called on to sprinkle stardust at religious gatherings, such as a speech he delivered at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington. Even his autobiography, The Journey, for which he was paid a £4.6m advance, appears to be aimed at the U.S. market.
"Tony Blair is an extremely popular figure in North America," said Sonny Mehta, his publisher. "His memoir is refreshing, both for its candour and vivid portrayal of political life."So embedded is he that Blair regularly crops up in Washington society diaries. Last September, the former Republican vice-president, Dick Cheney, was dining in the same restaurant. Blair got top billing in the gossip columns.
