Part 1 of this article, "The Unholy Alliance: Christianity & The NWO"
dealt generally with the relationship between this nations’ leading
evangelicals, Rev Sun Myung Moon, and the U.S. Intelligence
community as strange bedfellows. This short follow up will attempt
to go deeper into the makeup of these organizations, and how they
Every attempt to document the claims, statements and
facts herein have been made so as not to unjustly accuse or impugn
the integrity of those mentioned. But in the end, if such an unholy
alliance exists, there are manifold truths which likely will never
surface to the light of day for exposure and examination. We will
deal with what can be verified be reasonable sources.
Amazingly, most of these organizations are almost entirely made up
of the same individuals. Trinity Broadcasting Network, Christian
Broadcasting and most leading evangelicals/pastors in this unique
electronic limelight are also directly associated with these groups,
or have been in the past. The vast majority of these men have spent
decades making forays into political groups of this nature.
The question is:
What are they doing?
Where would these ’Moon money
men’ lead the flock they say God has charged them with as shepherds?
Is it untoward to ask such questions, to scrutinize their political
involvement with Moon?
We think not. In fact, we feel it is
We have already shown that some evangelicals have unabashedly
admitted Moon sponsorship, such as Jerry Falwell. It seems that most
though try to sweep this dirt under the rug. Is their ultimate goal
to lead the religious right blindly and willingly into the NWO,
something openly hailed by preachers and president’s alike?
In 1992, broadcast across the US on Graham’s radio program "Embrace
America 2000," after Bush Sr. gave his now infamous New World Order
Speech, the Rev. Billy Graham said that we should "embrace" this
"New World Order".
In Erwin Wilson's book, "The Assimilation of Evangelist Billy Graham
into the Roman Catholic Church" the renowned Bob Jones who wrote the
forward said, "
"Some of us who grieved over Graham’s first downward
steps toward compromise with apostasy and biblical unbelief knew
that he was pursuing a direction from which there would be no
turning back. While we grieved over him and prayed for him, we had
to warn men against his ministry as we had warned Billy against his
Protestant Church Life Magazine quoted Graham in its Sept. 29, 1956
issue, ’Referring to the Billy Graham New York Crusade scheduled for
May, 1957, Dr. Graham said:
"We’re coming to New York not to clean
it up, but to get people to dedicate themselves to God and to send
them on to their own churches -- Catholic, Protestant or Jewish."
This has remained the practice of Graham to this day. The Charlotte
Observer reported on a press release of the Billy Graham
Evangelistic Association, where
Billy Graham lashes out at Southern
Baptists who desire to evangelize Jews for Christ. Graham makes it
clear that he firmly opposes "proselytizing" the Jews; Billy
Graham’s unbiblical teaching is that, if you are a Jew, you are
already part of the Body of Christ, even if you reject Jesus.
Jews, Graham states "are engrafted into the Christian Church." And
yet, many of Graham’s past statements have proved to be antisemitic,
as recently embarrassing Nixon White house tapes have revealed.
In 1982, Billy Graham was awarded the Templeton Prize for "progress
in religion", a cash reward of roughly 1 Million dollars. Graham in
turn endorsed Sir John Marks Templeton’s books in "Christianity
Today" magazine. Templeton is a universalist
(1), just like Moon,
preaching/teaching the unity and unification of all world religions.
Other recipients of the Templeton award have been Charles Colson
(1993) and Bill Bright (1996), founder of Campus Crusade for Christ.
Templeton’s New Age unification principles and teachings were
introduced dramatically into the Christian mainstream by Robert Schuller in 1986, who continues to endorse the man and his
doctrines. For decades Graham has offered a confusing doctrinal
Billy Graham said,
"I found that my beliefs are essentially
the same as those of orthodox Catholics. We only differ on some
matters of later church tradition. I find that my beliefs are
essentially the same as those of orthodox Roman Catholics"
1978, McCall’s Magazine).
In the book "Billy Graham, A Parable of American Righteousness" by
Marshal Frady, we see a very different picture of Graham. Frady has
spent much time interviewing Graham, and those close to him. He
documents that Graham at a New York Crusade refused to allow street
people into the crusade because they were dirty, a loathsome
violation of every Christian creed toward the poor, to whom the
Gospel Jesus made declaration.
This is tantamount to the Galatians
incident in scripture when Peter, fearing the reproach of certain Judaisers of wealth and status, withdrew himself from associating
with gentiles, and the Apostle Paul had to oppose him to his face
publicly, "for he was to be blamed" (Galatians 2:11, The New
Testament). With the release of the Nixon tapes we see a very shaky,
strangely unchristian past for Graham.
He is also quoted as saying,
"Pope John Paul II has emerged as the
greatest religious leader of the modern world and one of the
greatest moral...leaders of this century."
(The Saturday Evening
Post, Feb, 1980.)
Though Graham is stating a fact, how does it
reflect on his ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ from a
Protestant position? More examples of a homogenization of the
message and messengers for the sake of public appeal. Pope John
Paul II, often called "The Marian Pope," has stirred countless
millions of Europeans to have faith in strange, supernatural Marian
apparitions which directly challenge the Word of God, the Supremacy
and Divinity of Jesus Christ and the Scriptural means of salvation
("Messages From Heaven," Eternal Productions,
In "The Deadly Deception", by
Jim Shaw, an ex-33rd degree mason
(Masons are believed by many to be associated with
and to be the driving force behind the NWO) p. 104-105, Shaw relates
how Graham was present at his ceremony initiating him into the 33rd
degree. Only freemasons are allowed to attend these ceremonies.
Huffington house refused to publish this book until after Grahams’
name was removed, and in place a simple reference to "a well known
evangelist" was supplemented. Robert Schuller (Crystal
Cathedral/Self-help pulpit guru), Norman Vincent Peale (Positive
Thinking apostle), and Oral Roberts (Godfather of the "seed-faith"
doctrines in contemporary fundamentalist-charismatic Christianity)
are all admittedly 33rd degree Masons. The rites of the Masonic
order, the writings of Albert Pike and the requisites for Masonic
initiates are distinctly and undeniably counter to Christian
doctrine and faith.
He is a supporter of the National Council of Churches and the World
Council of Churches, where a belief in Jesus Christ is a
nonessential. He has been quoted in an interview with Robert Schuller that there are
’many paths to God’ and he ’respects them
all.’ Of course, as was mentioned in the previous article, he
participated in prayer offered up to the god of Mohammhed (Allah).
At that gathering were many Jews, Muslims, Christians and many other
faiths gathered together praying to the god of Islam as the God of
Abraham -- a distinct moment of "unification".
Is Billy Graham working toward the goal of a
New World Order? Is it
merely a matter of decades of compromise with the world, or
something more strategic?
I wrote to the Billy Graham Evangelical
Ministries, to ask what moved him to participate in a prayer to the
god of Mohammhed, and to date have received no answer.
Tim LaHaye’s relationship with Moon goes back at least 17 years. In
1985 as was reported earlier, LaHaye was addressing several hundred
evangelical Christians, the flock he claims to guard and feed, and
did he exhort that they draw closer to his God? No, unless his god
is the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. He exhorted that they go willingly
to jail with the Rev. Moon in demonstration to his imprisonment over
tax fraud. (The spin on the story has been that LaHaye and others
were supporting Rev. Moon’s "religious freedom")
While in prison, Moon continued to spout out to the world that he is
the anointed messiah, and also at that time, he pronounced a day
when he claims he opened heaven. LaHaye visited him and apologized
for the actions of the U.S. Government which imprisoned him. Also
visiting Moon in prison was the president of one of the groups
chaired by LaHaye. This was the AFC (American Freedom Coalition)
president, Don Sills. (Truth is my Sword’ Vol 2, by Bo Hi Pak,
LaHaye is also the founder of the ACTV (American Coalition for
Traditional Values). Bo Hi Pak, Moons #1 man, formerly Korean
and the operative that was liaison to American CIA, gave a very
sizable donation to help steady the new organization, after which, LaHaye agreed to sit as a member of the board of directors for the
Rev. Moon sponsored "Christian Voice" group. (Americans United For
Separation of Church and State/Feb 2002)
The highly influential "Left Behind" author was also associated in a
group called the Council for Religious Freedom, but when it was made
public that this was another Moon front, LaHaye apparently resigned
from the group, though his name was not at the time stricken from
their membership roster. Though LaHaye resigned, others after him
signed on, continuing to bolster its credibility. These include Paul
Crouch of the Trinity Broadcasting Network.
Among the other bizarre goings on within the Moon/Conservative
alliance, a young, black Zimbabwean claiming that he is the
reincarnation of Moons dead son has also spoken at functions of the
American Freedom Coalition. (CRI Journal-CRJ0092A). Moon himself has
revealed that this claim of reincarnation is true.
The LaHayes were also involved in a meeting sponsored by Moon in
1996, through the Family Federation for World Peace as well as the
Women’s Federation for World Peace (two Moon sponsored
organizations), a 3 day seminar in Washington D.C., from July
31-August 2, along with several other highly visible evangelicals.
Beverly LaHaye received between $80-150,000 for speaking at the
In 1999, Tim LaHaye and co-author Jerry Jenkins wrote
(3) that the
Catholic church was very likely the Great Harlot sitting on the
beast in Revelation 17 and 18, their reason being that they believe
the Catholic church may attempt to unify the worlds religions,
though they wrote differently in their "Left Behind" book series.
LaHaye and his family are involved directly with groups sponsored by
and in some cases founded upon money from a false messiah whose
objective is publicly stated, and loudly at that, for the
unification of world religions. So where exactly does LaHaye stand
if in doctrine he warns of unification brought about by Rome, and
yet associates with the Unification Church?
Rev. Moon states in his address, ’Life on Earth and in the Spirit
"This is why God created so many different religions: to be training
grounds to make a path for every people, culture, custom, and
tradition. Religions polish people to be qualified to enter the
region of the original homeland. Because of humankind’s many
different cultural backgrounds, God sought and set the standard of
comparison and has been leading the way toward one unified religious
This is rather peculiar in light of the apparent diversity of world
religions in doctrine, practice and teachings, each with their own
sense of exclusivity of one another, sometimes to the very
inspiration of holy war.
According to ’Group Watch,’ a cult watchdog organization, Don Sills
is another evangelical leader who stated that he would recruit
members from a group directly associated with Rev. Moon, CAUSA, to
become members of his AFC (American Freedom Coalition) organization.
In March of 1988, Sills appeared on Trinity Broadcasting Networks
flagship program "Praise the Lord" warning people away from
listening to ’cult watch groups’, being concerned for the division
and fear they may bring. Of course these anti-cult groups tell us
that since Moon claims Jesus will worship at Moons feet, and
inflicts mind control techniques over his followers, his religion is
a cult that should by all means be avoided and certainly watched.
Paul Crouch is another who seems to shy away from the overall
doctrine espoused on his "Christian" television network, and appears
to work for religious unification.
The Tangled Web Revealed...
The Council for National Policy
We touched on this council in Part 1, but now we shall take a closer
look at it and its members. This group was founded by Tim LaHaye in
1981. Again we have shown definite ties between this "Christian"
organization and the Rev. Moons openly anti-Christ organizations.
This will be addressed later more fully, but this group is also
associated heavily with the controversial and cultic Church of
Scientology, the John Birch Society (known for its espionage work),
and the intelligence community. (Note: we attempted to get JBS board
member lists but the Society returned a response that it was their
policy not to reveal names of its board members).
It was stated by Congressman Woody Jenkins (Newsweek,1981)
predict that one day before the end of this century the Council [for
National Policy] will be so influential that no President,
regardless of party or philosophy, will be able to ignore us or our
concerns or shut us out of the highest levels of government."
October, 1999 George W. Bush addressed the CNP. His campaign refused
to release the full text of his remarks. Why the secrecy??
Beverly LaHaye, as was previously noted, is the wife of Tim LaHaye.
She also was and still may be part of the CNP, and also founder of
Concerned Women for America. She joined forces with Citizens Council
on Human Rights, a group affiliated with Scientology, and Gary
Bauer’s Family Research Council, which has benefited as well from
Rev. Moon organizations and money.
This all under the umbrella of
social change and "Christian family values" in America.
Mrs. LaHaye and Bauer appeared and spoke together in a 1995 rally against
psychiatric practices on children. The question is, regardless of a
good cause, is it necessary for these evangelical leaders to join
forces with Moon, Scientology and the Intelligence community?
doesn’t take a rocket scientist to recognize that many groups use
charitable giving/participation, patriotic associations and
demonstrations of community or national good will to obfuscate their
true objectives and agenda, or to conceal and deflect attention from
LaHayes group, the Council for National Policy, is just one example
of evangelical organizations being filled with Intelligence
officers, Moon representatives and Scientology members. To name all
the members who were and are involved in the intelligence community
and cults would take too long here, but here are just a few;
Howard Ahmanson Jr. (CNP Board of Governors) Contributed to the
Council of Foreign Relations
according to their 1990-1993 reports
Thomas R. Anderson (CNP Board of Governors) Also sits on the board
of the Moon front Family Research Council.
Rep John Ashbrook (CNP Board of Governors) Also a member of Moons
front group "Christian Voice".
Richard Bott (CNP Board of Governors) Former writer for the Moon
owned Washington times.
Jeffrey Coors (CNP Board of Governors) Coors brewing Co.
Joseph Coors (CNP Board of Governors) President Adolph Coors
Arnaul D’Borchgrave (CNP Member) Editor in chief of the Moon owned
Washington times, member of the Council of Foreign Relations(CFR).
George Gilder (CNP Board of Governors) Program director for
Rockerfeller funded Manhattan Institute, friend of David
Rockerfeller, and a member of the
Council of Foreign Relations
Ron Godwin (CNP Member) Former Vice President of Falwells Moral
Majority, Sr Vice President of the Moon owned Washington times
Allan Gottleib (CNP Member) Board Member of Moons front group, the
American Freedom Coalition. In 1983 the Moon group CAUSA, founded by
Bo Hi Pak, former Korean CIA and liaison to the American CIA, and
Moons right hand man, granted Gottleib an all expense paid trip to
Jamaica for a CAUSA conference
J. Peter Grace (CNP Member)
Council of Foreign Relations,
of Malta, and worked with the CIA to remove classified info
concerning former Nazi scientists so that they could immigrate into
the U.S., supposedly so they could carry on their work (including
mind control projects) here in the good ole U.S.of A.
Lt. General Daniel Graham (CNP Board of Governors) Director of the
Defense Intelligence Agency, Deputy Director CIA, Military advisor
to President Reagan, publicly endorses the Moon owned Washington
Times. Also a member of the Moon org, World Anti-Communist League,
and board of Directors for Moons CAUSA. Member of the American
Freedom Coalition. Vice Chairman for the U.S. Council for World
Freedom, which also is closely related to Moons CAUSA. Member too of
the Council of 56, Religious Roundtable.
Robert Grant (CNP Directory) Founder of "Christian Voice", and the
American Freedom Coalition, both are Moon sponsored orgs. Graduate
of the fuller Theological Seminary, and member of the Religious
Roundtable. Bo Hi Pak has praised the union between these Christian
organizations and Moonie orgs saying "...it shows what a great since
of humor God has." Grants "Christian Voice" claims to be the nations
largest Christian lobby, and according to the Philadelphia Inquirer,
merged with Moon in 1987.
Sen. Jesse Helms (CNP Board of
Governors) also of the Religious Roundtable, endorser of the
Moon owned Washington times, and a member of the
Council of Foreign Relations
Max Hugel (CNP Member) Former special assistant CIA Deputy
Director for Administration, and Deputy Director for Operations
Jack Kemp (CNP Member) Co Director
of Empower American, whose board is dominated by the
Council of Foreign Relations
Alan Keyes (CNP Member) Former Ambassador to the United Nations.
He was also part of Reagan's National Security Team which was
dominated by high level Council of Foreign Relations men (CFR).
Edwin Meese (CNP Executive Committee, CNP President) Former
Attorney General, former Chief of Staff
Notice that many mentioned, (as well as many not mentioned) are
members of the CFR (Council of Foreign Relations). This is a group
espousing the New World Order and have actively and openly worked
toward it for decades. Not surprisingly, the man who popularized the
phrase "New World Order,"
George Bush Sr, was also at one time head
of the CFR.
A reminder that some of the evangelical members of the CNP have
Beverly and Lee LaHaye, also associated with Moons CWA group
James Dobson (Focus On The Family)
Bob Jones the 3rd (Bob
Alan Keyes (Outspoken ultra-conservative black
talk show host and author)
Dr. D. James Kennedy (noted television
evangelist and Pastor)
Sam Moore of Thomas Nelson
Pat Robertson (founder of the Christian Broadcasting
Network and former Presidential aspirant)
Rev. Duane Motley
Oliver North (formerly with the National Security Council)
Phyllis Schlafly (ultra-right columnist and pundit)
John Ankerberg (internationally recognized Christian
Rev. E.V. Hill
and many others
So now we must ask ourselves why are these people associated
together under the front of "Christian" organizations? Is it merely
coincidence? To assume such is to be remarkably naive and woefully
remiss in learning the lessons of past history. By comparing the
members of the CNP and cross referencing them with any large
Christian or Moon organization, and many of the politically
right-wing PAC (Political Action Committee) organizations, you will
find essentially that these organizations are made up of the same
Is this a ruse, to draw evangelical believers and right wing
patriots into the NWO? It certainly seems to be. Moon states his
goal is to unify the worlds religions thereby unifying the world. Bo
Hi Pak states:
"We want to awaken the world. We want to turn the
tide [so] that this totalitarian, godless system must go....It is a
total war. Basically a war of ideas."
These organizations work together tightly, and nearly every major
evangelical name that can be named is involved with these apostate
organizations, fleecing their sheep in order to help fund these
groups; A large number of these "great men of God" can be found
living in palatial homes, driving exorbitantly expensive automobiles
and owning personal jets and relishing accolades as great teachers
of the faith.
These men seem more like the Pharisees of Jesus’ day,
who denied Him as well, yet 40 years later came to their destruction
following a false messiah. They speak at each others functions,
support one another monetarily, and cause many to believe that they
do it in the name of God and in harmony with God’s will (many
claiming direct divine revelation, inspiration and in some cases
unquestionable supernatural authority).
The Bible they themselves
espouse refers to them as hirelings.

the Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church. The Washington Post
(March 30, 1988) has even described the AFC as a "Moon sponsored

Tim LaHaye and other Christians are helping the Unification Church
battle the perceived threat of government intrusion.
By Beth Spring | posted 8/8/01
(This article originally appeared in the September 7, 1984, issue of
Full acceptance into the mainstream of American religious life is a
cherished goal of Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church. Ironically,
Moon’s recent imprisonment for tax evasion appears to be bringing
that dream a step closer to reality.
"Religious freedom" rallies around the country are drawing thousands
of unsuspecting Christians into emotionally charged meetings that
portray Moon as a persecuted man of God. No ties with the
Unification Church are mentioned in promotional mailings. The
sponsors are identified as a coalition of Christian leaders
including author Tim LaHaye; Robert Grant, of Christian Voice; and
Joseph Lowery, of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Greg
Dixon and Everett Sileven, leaders of a coalition of independent,
fundamentalist churches, are involved as well.
The sponsors view Moon as a persecuted ally in an escalating battle
against secular humanism and government intrusion into church
Moon is a victim of persecution or a felon is a matter of
considerable debate. There is little doubt, however, that the entire
affair is a public relations bonanza for his church.
Darrel Malcom, senior pastor of Webber Street Church of Christ in
Urbana, Illinois, accepted an offer for an expense-paid trip to
Washington, D.C., to attend the massive "Pageant for Religious
Freedom" on July 25. He learned of the event from two Unification
Church members in Urbana. Their involvement gave him pause, but he
says he accepted their invitation because he respects LaHaye. LaHaye
is cochairman of the Coalition on Religious Freedom, the group that
sponsored the event. Malcom says he enjoyed the lavish production,
but returned home feeling "a little bit used."
When Malcom returned home, Unification Church members asked him to
consider sponsoring a local rally in support of Moon.
A narrator introduced actors portraying heroes of American religious
history. At the end, a melodramatic enactment of Moon’s trial and
sentencing drew a chorus of boos and hisses for his prosecutor and
sustained cheers for Moon.
Following the performance, LaHaye spoke to the audience.
LaHaye did not mention Moon
The evening’s dramatic climax came when Moon’s daughter, In Jin
Moon, choked back tears as she spoke of her father. "I have almost
never seen my father sleep. He is always up working and praying. I
have never seen anyone so dedicated to America’s dream and to God."
She read a statement prepared by Moon for the gathering. It referred
to America as God’s final hope,
Moon’s statement emphasized the need for churches to unite-a central
theme of Unification teaching.
Chris Nauser, a 36-year-old Moonie from Switzerland, viewed the
rally as "just one part of the whole development of an awakening"
that will sweep the world. He shares the belief of most of Moon’s
followers that Moon himself is the Messiah. The Unification Church
teaches that Jesus Christ failed in his redemptive mission and,
before his death, lied about his coming resurrection. Moonies teach
that mankind is in need of physical redemption, which will come by
the marriage of an ideal man and woman. The man is to be from
