This is the time of year, as kids head back to government schools, that I get the usual request from the local high school to fund their "Model United Nations" program. This program teaches that in order to achieve lasting peace in the world, we must look to the United Nations (UN). Whether or not your school has such a program, rest assured that your children are being taught to look to the UN as the world's savior. World peace they say can only come through world government and world law. Even grade schoolers come home with awards naming them "world citizens" and they are saying pledges to the "universe" in the classroom. What does all this mean? What would the UN have to offer in the way of world peace to us as "global citizens"? Unfortunately it is far more sinister than the utopians would have us believe.

Most people don't have the slightest idea what the UN has planned for them. The UN is run by people who have a plan for international socialism. They want to "transform" the world. As they feel they are morally superior to us, they don't want to be bothered with "the facts" because their quest is not for reality, but for a vision. Although socialism has brought untold suffering to tens of millions of victims around the world, the vision of these utopians is more important to them than people are. As Robert Muller, who has held many top posts at the UN, wrote about one UN program, Agenda 21, it "proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by every person on earth". Muller also said, "…we must outgrow the increasingly erroneous notion of good and bad as seen by a particular group… and define new concepts of what is good or bad for the entire human family." What are some of these new concepts for the entire human race?

One concept, which really encompasses all the others, is a pagan religious worldview that is totally incompatible with Christianity. Dr. Norman Myers, who has been an advisor to the UN, the World Bank, the State Department, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, says in Gaia Atlas of Future Worlds that "there is no longer any 'we' and 'they' but only 'us'- all of us humans, together with all our fellow species and other members of the Gaian community." It teaches what Myers says is a "new humanism, a new world view, a new planetary concern." This will in time of course require a UN ministry of religion. Other concepts which are really just a fallout of this new religion are the loss of individual rights, e.g. religious freedom, private property rights, parental rights, Second Amendment rights, etc. Virtually all the rights given to us by the Creator will be eliminated. How does the United Nations propose this will bring peace?

The "one worlder's" definition of peace is not the same as ours. Since the 1945 inception of the UN there have been hundreds of wars and some of the worst genocides in history. Back in 1970, then UN Secretary- General U Thant said that the UN charter was in line with the philosophy of the Soviet Union's Vladimir Lenin. According to Lenin himself his philosophy was, "Power without limit, resting directly upon force, restrained by no laws, absolutely unrestrained by rules". A great way to bring peace to the world - by force! The peace of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and other utopian tyrants cost the lives of tens of millions of innocent unarmed people. The definition of "peace" to a tyrant is lack of resistance to his will. Imagine if their kind of "peace" could be forced on the whole world. In order for international law to be enforced, the UN would have to be the most powerful force on earth. We can see them working rapidly toward this goal.

The United Nations is behind the push to disarm all citizens of the world. Our Second Amendment rights are feared because free people with a right to defend themselves are looked at as a threat to "peace". Calling it gun control is deceptive. It is really a" transfer of armaments" from nation states to a global superpower. One global power making life and death decisions for the entire world! Any previous world power or dictator could have only dreamed of such vast unchecked power! Why would a peace organization need so much power?

One of the strongest cases against empowering the UN and against civilian disarmament is Rwanda's 1994 genocide. It was the UN supported totalitarian regime of Juvenal Habyarimana that carried out the slaughter of 800,000 Rwandans in just 103 days. Unable to defend themselves, they were hacked to pieces because government had the monopoly on force. In Katanga in 1964, UN "peacekeepers" slaughtered civilian men, women and children. According to 46 civilian doctors, UN planes knowingly bombed ambulances, hospitals, churches and schools. The people were forced back under the control of Patrice Lumumba's reign of terror. The UN is a peace organization? Their plan for international socialism was there since it's inception.

The international socialists want to control all of humankind because they don't believe in the sin nature of man as taught in Scripture; they believe man's problems are caused by his environment. In their utopian vision, they see themselves controlling all human activity to bring peace on earth. Look what this humanist philosophy has done already in the United States. Instead of criminals and delinquents being punished, the innocents suffer. Murderers, rapists, and pedophiles are "victims" of their environment and are let back out on the streets to prey on the innocent. We murder unborn babies and call it "choice" but have compassion on cold - blooded murderers because of their "poor environments" and want to abolish the death penalty. Other nations that have backward peoples are not considered backward because of false religion or bad character. Instead advanced nations are penalized by having their wealth confiscated and sent to these backward nations in order to improve their "environments". In reality, the confiscated wealth often goes to empower rich rulers while the people remain poor. Many of the rulers that the UN props up are leaders of terrorist nations.

Current UN secretary-general, Kofi Annan, says Communist dictator Fidel Castro, who the State Department says sponsors terrorists, has "set an example we can all learn from." While the U.S. was voted off the UN's Human Rights Commission in 2001, "real champions" of individual rights were there, like Libya, Sudan and Communist China. After September 11 when an anchorman expressed relief that the UN Headquarters had not been hit, a Canadian journalist Mark Steyn remarked: "Why would the guys who took out the World Trade Center and Pentagon want to target the UN? The UN is dominated by their apologists…" Rather than fighting terrorism, the UN has been a supporter of international terrorists right inside our own borders!

An international body with the power to exert force to control the world's people is not the answer to the world's peace problem. The root cause of the world's problems is sin (transgression of God's laws), therefore dealing with the heart is the way to change people, not international force to control their environments. How will you rein in the sins of an international body with no one higher to answer to? The protections we have under the U.S. Constitution that limit and separate the power of government will disappear if we sign on to a utopian "global government" that does not acknowledge God as the author of rights. In this utopian ideal where the vision is more important than the individual, no life is safe. We are headed for massive bloodshed not peace if the United Nation's power continues to grow. We need to get out of the UN now!

In Genesis chapter 11 the people wanted to be as one, but the Lord knowing unrestrained evil would be the result, scattered them about the earth. The United Nations is not a good idea gone bad, it was a bad idea from the start.

These internationalists are not so concerned about us. They have our children as a captive audience. The propaganda aimed at them through the government school system is intense. This diabolical plan could be completed through the next generation. Who will tell our children the truth before it's too late!
