The 2016 Mekudeshet Festival might accurately be dubbed a predecessor of the one world religion. Christians, Jews and Muslims are flocking to the Holy City for a “spiritual gathering” dubbed Amen—A House of Prayer For All Believers.
The goal of the event is to create “a single home for the world’s three major religions to harness the city’s ancient powers to inspire artists, musicians and cultural figures from around the world to redefine their art and traditions and connect amid troubling times.”
“We will see if it is possible, despite all the corporeal difficulties and earthly obstacles, to create a new reality,” says Mekudeshet artistic director Itay Mautner.
Although we should seek opportunities to love people of all faiths, events like Amen typically breed compromise in the name of unity… Amen appears to be nothing more than an attempt to redefine religion.”
“Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways,” says Pope Francis when speaking to a similar audience recently. “In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty we have for all: We are all children of God.”
The Bible teaches that there’s only one way to the Father – through Jesus Christ. To suggest anything else causes confusion and deceives.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6.
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Revelation 13:8.
