Motivation, Faith, and Global Influence: The Power of the Church and United Nations

Motivation is a potent force that can be harnessed to fuel personal growth, enrich lives, and enhance mental acuity. Its power lies in its adaptability – whether you’re motivated to achieve wealth, attain optimal health, or gain knowledge, or simply to ‘outrun the alligators’, i.e., overcome challenges. Notably, the utilization of motivation in religious settings has proved significant, especially in Christianity, where it propels believers to exceed their spiritual limitations.

High-profile religious personalities, such as Joel Osteen and Kenneth Copeland, are prime examples of motivation’s role in their successful journey, both spiritually and materially. Osteen, recognized as the world’s wealthiest religious figure, leads the way, even outpacing other influential figures like Jason, a prominent religious personality featured in this discourse. Jason’s perspective, distinguishing between pastoring and preaching, further underscores the varied dynamics within the religious landscape.

As Christians, the ‘noise’ or challenges of the world are ever-present. Yet, the Christian motivation is inherently different. It’s not about artificially stimulating oneself, as one might do with an energy drink. Instead, it’s rooted in the steadfast truth of the word of God. Amidst the world’s tumult, Christians are encouraged to run ahead, breaking the ‘sound barrier’ of noise and finding peace in the promises of the faith.

In the same vein, understanding the ‘noise’ is crucial to staying ahead of it. A prime example of this is the impact of Robert Mueller’s work within the United Nations. Serving the U.N. for over 40 years and rising to the rank of Assistant Secretary-General, Mueller was instrumental in expanding the representation of religions in the United Nations. His influence even extended to the educational realm, culminating in the establishment of a United Nations Associated School promoting international cooperation and peace.

In an interesting twist, Mueller’s core curriculum draws heavily from the philosophy of Alice Bailey, a prolific writer and significant figure in the realm of new religious movements and Western occultism. Bailey’s influence, embodied in her more than 24 books, traces its roots back to a Russian woman who played a critical role in shaping her worldview. Bailey’s work now forms a cornerstone in global education, disseminated via her publishing company, initially known as Lucifer Publishing Company, but subsequently renamed Lucas Publishing.

Incorporating diverse spiritual symbols from various religions, this broadened curriculum fosters an increased understanding of multiple faiths. It contributes significantly to the U.N.’s strategy of one world religion, aiming to dismantle the dominant Judeo-Christian family structure.

Critics of this approach see it as an attempt to dilute the potency of Christianity, promote other religions, and downplay Christianity as the sole path to spiritual fulfillment. Concerns have been raised about the dangers of modifying church doctrines to accommodate these changes. However, the integration of these ideas is already noticeable in the current church structures and systems.

Yet, with the mounting tension, it’s essential to remember that the darker the times, the brighter the light shines. With the perceived stronghold of these strategies in our educational system, there’s a critical need for awareness and discernment. The media and politicians, perceived to be controlled by major stockholders like BlackRock and Vanguard, play a significant role in promoting a progressive agenda. But amid this ‘noise’, the church must maintain its faith and not be swayed by the world.

In the face of these global shifts, many feel the need for a revival from God to re-establish what’s believed to have been destroyed. Despite the challenges, maintaining a vision beyond the physical world can prevent disillusionment. This eternal perspective can inspire a blessed life with a blessed hope, as Christians eagerly anticipate Christ’s return.

Even in these challenging times, motivation plays a crucial role. It’s not about gaining the world’s acceptance but rather focusing on advancing the kingdom of God. Indeed, the journey is arduous, reminiscent of the trials of the Olympian who survived a plane crash, brutal captivity, and forgave his captors, demonstrating extraordinary resilience and forgiveness. This serves as a potent reminder of the power of hope – hope in the truth that Jesus Christ is coming back. As we navigate this tumultuous world, we are grateful for grace that reaches down and saves anyone who calls upon His name.
