Each of these concepts as they are interpreted and applied by these activist groups' are blatant lies and delusion of the highest order. Yet, the "father of lies," as Jesus Himself called him, referring to the devil, who is the ultimate author of all these hypotheses, is being astoundingly successful in duping massive segments of mankind with these thoroughly deceptive philosophies.
In America, organizations like Born Again America, whose parent organization is none other than Norman Lear's radically liberal and profane People For The American Way, are having huge success in the systematic seduction of the minds of the masses via their deft and guileful propaganda campaigns. The influence of this organization and its subsidiaries along with that of others similar to them upon the outcome of the 2008 Presidential Election was enormous and cannot be overstated. So deft and guileful are the brainwashing tactics and techniques of these politico-socio activists that, as Jesus predicted that would happen in the last days, even the elect are being deceived and led astray along with the unbelieving of the world. It is this delusion of the elect -- professing believers -- that concerns me the most, and should be the greatest concern of all believers.
One of my newest Facebook friends and fellow believer, who is a professional editor and writer, recently shared with me her latest blog article regarding this topic, which I thought was extremely insightful and intuitive. She graciously gave me permission to share her insights with the readership of this blog.

Pluralism, Diversity, and Inclusion
By Nancy Mathes Williams
I would like to challenge you to stir up and exercise your discernment. We are moving into an era when this is CRITICAL! As Christians, we must look beyond the surface to see what force or good and patriotic. Instead of taking things at face value, like the Born Again American (BAA) video that is being passed around, we must learn to delve deeper to the core of what they are about. BAA at first glance appears to be a Christian movement. IT IS NOT! But the way it is presented and its name are designed to deceive even the elect. What born again means on the BAA site is that one has a renewed realization of how great America is, and they, therefore, pledge to serve her more actively. It is really true that the American dictionary is being re-written, and many words have new meanings.
There is a subtle move afoot to change the mind/thinking of people, not only Americans, but around the world. The goal of this move is pluralism, and the ultimate goal is global pluralism. Who is behind it? It is those who are pushing for a New World Order (NWO). The NWO will have a one-world government, a one-world economy, and a one-world religion.
I went searching for definitions of pluralism on the Internet and found some interesting things. Pluralism is:
A process of compromise [that answers the question right there!] characterized by mutual appreciation and respect between two or more groups, such that members of different groups are permitted to maintain their cultural ways, as long as they conform to those practices deemed necessary for the survival of the society as a whole. [emphasis added]A very important question we should ask is: Who does the deeming of what is necessary?
Another notable definition of pluralism:
Theologically implies there being more than one principle at work in the universe.Well, isn’t that what Christianity is all about? Good vs. evil? Life vs. death? Hope vs. despair? Wiki.answers.com says the opposite of hope is Despair: To lose all hope. Complete loss of hope. To not know Jesus. So, then, the way of hope is Jesus, and without Jesus, there is despair. Even Wiki knows that Jesus is the only way. Okay, okay! I know that is not exactly what that definition meant. It was not referring to opposites, but "likes," as in there are more than one equally legitimate principles at work, such as, "You can go to heaven through Jesus, and I will go to heaven through Mohammad, or Buddha, or love." How about, "You have a right to marry a person of the opposite sex, and I have the right to marry a person of the same sex."
The question to ask here is: Can one simultaneously and equally possess right and wrong, good and evil, life and death, hope and despair? It is an impossibility to accept two opposing ideologies at once, as the next definition of pluralism states:
The tolerance of different and often incompatible views. [emphasis added]Here is where compromise must enter. Incompatible views naturally repel each other, like oil and water. It is impossible for them to be close without some kind of compromise. It is impossible for them to be together and each maintain their own purity. Well, guess who is expected to compromise in this pluralistic agenda? That’s right, the Christians. Not only do those pushing this agenda want Christians to compromise, they want them extinct.
Besides pluralism, the goal is also called diversity and inclusion, depending on the group using it. Diversity is used more in societal dynamics, while inclusion has become quite the popular word in parts of religion. Carlton Pearson has embraced inclusion, with his idea that all roads lead to heaven. Even some of the popular drama series on TV now have their characters attending All Saints Inclusion Church. I saw it on "Bones." Many businesses are going beyond training their employees in acceptance of diversity and are cultivating an inclusive environment in the workplace. The propaganda is everywhere!
When you sign up to be a part of things like Born Again American, as well as others of their ilk, they begin sending you subtle mind-altering propaganda. It comes in bit by bit. They use things that sound very noble, loving, and patriotic. They are primarily targeting young people, as their commitment statement shows, because the youth are easier to influence and are the future leaders.
Behind this Born Again American movement is Norman Lear's People for the American Way, a very liberal and anti-Christian organization.
This is what Wikipedia says about them:
People For the American Way (People For) is a progressive, politically liberal advocacy organization in the United States.You will find People For The American Way advertised on the Born Again American website. If you read their purpose and the pledge they are asking people to sign, you will see how they encourage the elevation of self when the Word of God says, He must increase, but I must decrease.
People For The American Way was created as an advocacy group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people. It has also been active in recent years in battles over judicial nominations and on issues including school class size, separation of church and state, civil rights, voting rights for Washington, DC, in the U.S. Congress, while its main purpose is equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) people, and promotion of civic participation.
People For describes itself as "an energetic advocate for the values and institutions that sustain a diverse democratic society ... threatened by the influence of the radical right and its allies who have risen to political power." Its principal targets have been Religious Right organizations such as Christian Voice (USA), Moral Majority, and Focus on the Family.
People For The American Way was founded by television producer Norman Lear (All in the Family, Maude, The Jeffersons, etc.) in 1981 specifically to attack the efforts of the religious right as an advocacy group for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people. According to People For's website, Lear was particularly concerned with the growing number of televangelists such as Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. Co-founders included Barbara Jordan, Andrew Heiskell, and other leaders from the political, religious, business, and entertainment communities.
We, as Christians, must wake up from our slumber. Wake up, O sleeper! What these liberal NWO voices are touting is not really diversity but the silencing of the Christian voices and their influence. They are tolerant of everyone but Christians. We are approaching the time when those who are against us will attempt to silence our Christian voices by any means necessary. Many Christians are going to be martyred like we have never seen in history. It’s already happening in other countries, and we are closer now than we have ever been to it happening in America. More and more, minds are being programmed to see Christians as narrow-minded, non-thinking, unintelligent individuals who are a blight on society and a hindrance to pluralism and diversity and must be silenced and/or eradicated. Even our new President stated that America is no longer a Christian nation, "We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus — and nonbelievers."
How easy it is to change a mind that is not convinced. Remember that 1 Timothy 4 says: Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons ... The Amplified Bible adds in verse 2: through the hypocrisy and pretensions of liars whose consciences are seared (cauterized).... Deceiving spirits operate through people.
Now you can see the importance of having your senses trained to examine everything. If someone can deceive you and re-program your mind and cause you to fall away from Christ, the next great step is to draw you into allegiance to Antichrist.
We are to put on the mind of Christ rather than the mind of the world, or of those in the world. The Bible does not teach inclusion or pluralism but, rather, to come out from among them and be separate. Jesus the the ONLY way, the ONLY truth, and the ONLY life. Those who come to the Father must come through Jesus Christ. I leave you with this truth:
2 Cor. 6:14-16 (NIV): Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."Click here to read the rest of the above article.
