ONENESS: What is the True Meaning

ONENESS: What is the True Meaning
by William Gray
 “11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” - John 17:11, 20-21
INTRODUCTION
In recent years, months and weeks, a number of groups and organizations have been calling for a “one world” church.  Groups using slogans such as “co-exist” are attempting to promote a joining together of Christians, Jews, and Muslims , and in some cases it is reported that other religious sects, such as Hindus and Buddists are being recruited to join in “co-existence,” as the world moves toward a one world religion.  The current Pope, Francis, was on Time magazine’s cover and was declared to be the “new world Pope.”
            It is reported that Francis has announced his determination to make “ecumenical outreach” a top priority.  In an article by Michael Snyder dated April 15, 2013, appearing on  “worldview weekend. com,” Pope Francis is reported to have announced that “he believes that Muslims worship and pray to the ‘One God’ that he also worships.” In looking at this concept of “all roads lead to God” which Pope Francis has recently opined about, we also find that this Roman Catholic Pope has recently stated that even “atheists who do good and live a good life will go to heaven!”  In an article appearing on World View Times.com, Erin Benziger raises the legitimate question of whether Pope Francis even knows God. It is reported there that at the mass delivered on Wednesday May 22, 2013, Pope Francis stated the following as reported by the
Catholic News Agency;
“Every human person despite his or her beliefs can do good, and a sharing in good works is the prime place for encounter among those who disagree, Pope Francis said at his mass today.  The Lord created us in his image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and he does good and all of us have this commandment at heart; do good and avoid evil. All of us,” The Pope taught in his homily May 22ndat St. Martha’s residence in the Vatican. “We must meet one another doing good. ‘but I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good; we will meet one another there”
Charisma News also reported on the same homily as follows:......................
