The Real Origin of the New World Order and the Social Gospel
“Under a religious guise, Satan will seek t extend his influence over the Christian world.” E.G. White, The Great Controversy, p. 464.
A prime teaching of the emergent global church advocates is that doctrine constitutes a wall of separation and is not necessary; that all that is necessary is what is held in common and that there are many different paths all leading to God. What does God say about that?
“The position that it is of no consequence what men believe is one of Satan's most successful deceptions. He knows that the truth, received in the love of it, sanctifies the soul of the receiver; therefore he is constantly seeking to substitute false theories, fables, another gospel. From the beginning the servants of God have contended against false teachers, not merely as vicious men, but as inculcators of falsehoods that were fatal to the soul. Elijah, Jeremiah, Paul, firmly and fearlessly opposed those who were turning men from the word of God. That liberality which regards a correct religious faith as unimportant found no favor with these holy defenders of the truth.” The Great Controversy, p. 520.
The Social Gospel that is often attributed to Rick Warren, was founded by the secret societies long before Rick Warren was born, and later implemented by the Federal Council of Churches, which was the precursor to the World Council of Churches. The goal of the Social Gospel is the kingdom of God on earth, and that is not going to happen until after the millennium. That goal is totally anti-scripture and pioneer Adventism. It is totally unscriptural and unAdventist to espouse that objective or anyone who espouses it.
But the origin of the New World Order predates the Federal Council of Churches. It goes way back-- to Daniel chapter 2.
The American one-dollar currency has in Latin: The inscription ANNUIT COEPTIS translates as "He (God) has favored our undertakings," and refers to the many instances of Divine Providence during our Government's formation. In addition, the inscription NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM translates as "A new order of the ages," and signifies a new American era."
“We may legitimately expect that the collective mind of the nation will be equal to the intellectual and administrative tasks involved, especially under the stress of critical social conditions, if the moral qualities required are in sufficient power. What our people lack is neither material resources nor technical skills – these we have in abundance – but a dedication to the common good, a courage and an unselfishness greater than are now manifest in American life. The tasks are beyond us and their accomplishment will be indefinitely delayed or frustrated, unless there be a nationwide spiritual awakening which has social gains. Our supreme social need is spiritual awakening. In our extremity arising out of harrowing social conditions throughout the world, we therefore turn anew to Christ; for the faith of great endeavour, for an overwhelming disclosure of God in the life of humanity, for the dedication of innumerable individuals to the creation of a more Christian social order, and for the assurance that what needs to be done, with God’s help can be done.”

The Real Purpose of the Social Gospel’s Small “Cell Groups”
Some Adventists are saying that the small cell groups that are organized by the mega churches are the same thing Ellen White advocated. That could not be further from the truth. The “cell groups” of the Social Gospel, are organized to further the cause of “…faith in the religious power of man, hope for his social redemption. What was needed, he declared, was a theology which would advance beyond the old doctrine of the sin of Adam’s fall and of individual men to encourage a recognition of and repentance for the sins of society.” Excerpted from the live link above.
Actually, the Social Gospel is a cleverly disguised work your way to redemption plan by way of repenting for the sins of society by working to solve them and annihilate them from the earth. This is Satan’s works oriented plan for proving that his way is superior to God’s plan. It all sounds so good, innocent and biblical, but the hidden agenda is an elitist plan for a centralized one world socialist, collectivist government and church that will make it easy to control the masses and prove Satan’s contention that man is inherently good and does not need the law of God as it concerns the keeping of His Sabbath, which demonstrates obedience to God rather than obedience to Satan via his counterfeit Sabbath.
This plan by Satan is wily! Here we have state of the art truth tracking side by side with Satan’s error and it will deceive some of the “brightest lights,” the very elect of society and the church. You will appear selfish and uncharitable if you oppose it for the right reasons. Satan’s plan will concern itself for the supposed interest of the many to the exclusion of individual rights and responsibility to God’s requirements. Elle White prophesied this facet in The Great Controversy. Government will contend that the good of the masses is more important that obedience to God.
Satan has mixed truth with error in his emerging global church program and New World Order, but that is not justifiable cause for a true believer to unite with him:
“But the fact that a movement to establish error is connected with a work which is in itself good, is not an argument in favor of the error. We may disguise poison by mingling it with wholesome food, but we do not change its nature. On the contrary, it is rendered more dangerous, as it is more likely to be taken unawares. It is one of Satan's devices to combine with falsehood just enough truth to give it plausibility. The leaders of the Sunday movement may advocate reforms which the people need, principles which are in harmony with the Bible; yet while there is with these a requirement which is contrary to God's law, His servants cannot unite with them. Nothing can justify them in setting aside the commandments of God for the precepts of men.” The Great Controversy, pp. 587, 588.
