What's wrong with a one world government?


Zuck

Recommended Posts

Curious what people think. I know hard core righties talk about it as if it's the plague. I think a lot of that has to do with the bible. I often hear them talk about a one world government likes it's a swear word but haven't heard an explanation of why it's so bad.

There'd probably be a lot less wars. It's a pretty far fetched notion and kind of a utopian ideal but why do people hate the idea so much?

Is peace and equality around the world such a bad thing?

There would be constant civil war. It is bad enough how divided our own country is, but you throw another 6 billion people with many more ideals, theologies, customs, etc. into the mix and you will have a complete melt down.

The only way that the idea is even remotely conceivable and would have a remote chance of actually working, would be if extra-terrestrials came here and tried to take over planet Earth. Then, maybe, people of this planet could unite together under one banner, but my money is on everyone selling eachother out to the aliens.

From a strictly Biblical point of view, according to the prophetic books, the one world government is a sign that the end is near...Armageddon is just around the corner at that point (the new leader of the one world gov't is the anti-Christ....according to prophecy...not me...I wouldn't know who the anti-Christ is...though I have a suspicion it is Bill Parcells ;)).

Where in the Bible does it talk about a "one-world government"?

Well, where to begin. Nearly a third of the world is Islamic. Assuming that this would be a freely elected government, what other group would ever be able to assume power?

The UN is as close to a one world government as we are going to see for a long time. Europe tried to become one government but failed because the smaller countries thought thet were not going to be fairly represented.

What money would we use? Talk about an economic slump. Imagine if you will that the world had one government: 60% or more of the annual budget would go to taking care of the poor, and immunizing the sick. The economy would collapse. In order for this hypothetical government to succeed, we would all have to work for pennies on the dollar what we earn now. It would basically be socialism.

I believe that the Communists wanted a one world government, and not so many countries liked the idea. Same with Hitler. Now the radical Muslims want to make an Islamic caliphate, and I don't think women want that.

Too many problems to have one government.

Those prophecies are long fulfilled. 70 AD

Nero was the Beast (Caesar Nero equals six hundred and sixty six in Hebrew).

Matthew 24 was fulfilled and the temple destroyed.

The abomination of desolation occurred when the temple was destroyed. The city was encircled and believers escaped to the mountains.

In addition there is no mention of a specific "Anti-Christ" in the Bible. All references are to anti-christs which there will and always will be.

That's one interpretation...though I'm sure you are aware there are others who believe differently...though I don't really want to sidetrack Zuck's post.

If you open the Book of Revelation and simply begin reading it as an unfolding scenario, it goes something like this. There will be wars and famines and disease epidemics and heavenly signs that will alert the world to some sort of crisis. Then will come an Antichrist as he's called, or a political ruler, that will establish control over the whole earth. He'll be backed up with a religious ruler, who's called the false prophet. They together establish a unified social, economic and religious system that dominates the world. The only thing opposing them are the people of God and these two prophets, they're called the two witnesses, who appear in Jerusalem, and begin to speak against this power. The rest of the book, really the last half of the book is about the overthrow of this system. The beast, the false prophet, who has the number 666, the Antichrist, is overthrown with judgments and plagues. Most of them are very cosmic. Asteroids hitting the earth. The water turning to blood and that sort of thing, until finally, Jesus Christ returns as a warrior on a white horse and sets up the kingdom of God. ...

One world government right now is sort of like communism... in an ideal world with ideal people it works. In the world we have today, there is too much self-interest and the one government would become crippled by corruption.

In some respects this is why I think our government works best when the branches are ruled by different parties. The one government (Repub. Executive, Legislative,and Judicial) has wrecklessly increased government size, diminished freedoms, underfunded programs like FEMA, FDA, NIH, VA, etc., undersupplied the military during a time of war, increased or has done nothing to stem the educational decline, produced a medicare plan which is almost useless, but nontheless incredibly expensive, passed energy legislation that increases the profit of energy companies, but fails to do anything to alleviate or improve the energy problem, and spends worse than the greatest liberal democrat could ever imagine.

I agree with you except for your last statement about antichrist. ( I don't want to hijack the thread but if you are familiar with the London Baptist Confession or the Westminster Confession of Faith then you'll know who I believe the antichrist is.)

The only way a one world government would even come close to working, and I strongly doubt it, would be under a system like the old Articles of Confederation. Where all the states (current nations) would be free to operate as they see fit. The Global level of government would be unable to tax, enforce, or do anything else other then meet and talk about useless crap.

Now as for your question, the thing that is wrong with a one world government is that there are many cultures on the planet. Each culture has long evolved different tolerances for certain things as well as different definitions for equality and justice. Trying to pass global laws would be impossible, western nations would never be able to agree with others as to what rights should be the norm.

Also corruption would be impossible to control and in my mind it would only be a matter of time before rights were restricted and since there are no nations, free people would have no defense. It would literally be you against the world if you decided a global ruling was not for you.

What, am I the only voice of hope in this morass of negativity?

There will be a one world government once we find other intellegent species outside of our own. It will be in the best intrest of the world, and for humanity as a whole. . . that's not in my lifetime though. Until man rids the world of religion, this will never happen. There will be all to many people fighting over the fact that they thing thier diety is better then the other diety.

That's the catch-22. Alien species will not communicate to us while we have religion, and we will never completely eliminate religion until an alien species is found.
