The central church agency for hundreds of millions of Catholics around the world has issued a report on October 24th calling for a global banking system, and an economic authority to step in and control a system which many believe has lost its mandate in nations around the globe. The document, written and distributed by the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department, promotes a new global banking order to replace the current models and system.
The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises.
The 18-page document, “Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority,” was at times very specific, calling, for example, for taxation measures on financial transactions.
“The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence,” it said. – CNBC
This report and push for a global economic system by one of the largest Christian churches in the world is a very interesting dychotomy for an institution that bases its beliefs and doctrines around the bible. In fact, there are two opposing elements from that core belief that spark contridiction for a global financial system.
First, Christian believers are instructed to trust in God for all provision, and to use biblical principles for investing and income. The parable of the coin in the mouth of the fish is a prime example of reliance on God to provide for ones needs when dealing with the economics of secular governments. Secondly, the prophetic book of Revelation that predicts a global takeover by those opposing God, speaks of an eventual one world financial system, and for the ruling body of the Catholic church to be advocating and proposing such a system, places the institution and denomination at odds with the very book they claim is their foundation of trust and belief.
The separation of church and state is not just a concept to protect worshipers of a religious belief from persecution by secular governments, but it is also a mandate to the church to focus its work on spirutual matters, not secular. The Vatican’s new doctrine of proposing a new global banking and economic system is a contridiction to the church’s first estate according to their fundamental calling, and could lead to confusion by followers who have been taught to be wary of a global economic system in the prophecies of their early church leaders.
