Don't believe we're headed for a one-world government soon? Cultural commentator and political activist Charlie Kirk, along with Jack Hibbs, founder and senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino Hills, California, warns you not to be deceived.
Kirk, 28, who founded Turning Point Ministries USA, says that the World Economic Forum, founded and led by Klaus Schwab, is on a mission to destroy Western values—biblical values—and to drive the Ten Commandments out of our culture.
"They are doing everything they possibly can to break the Ten Commandments," Kirk says. "It's broader than that, but I think that's a good way to frame it. The Ten Commandments are a really good starting point. They are morally transcendent, and any person that lives them out will be flourishing and grow closer to God. But when they say they want to break those, they're going to try to do it not just through the laws but also through trying to make the opposite acceptable and, in fact, glorify it."
The World Economic Forum has seven predictions for nations around the globe that they hope will take hold by 2030:
- You will own nothing and be happy.
- The U.S. won't be the world's superpower.
- You won't die waiting for an organ donor.
- You'll eat less meat.
- A billion people will be displaced by climate change.
- You could be preparing to go to Mars.
- Western values will have been tested to their breaking point.
"The West did not create these values (the Ten Commandments); these are biblical values," Hibbs says. "Those values are from the Middle East, from Israel and the God of Israel. It's the West that adopted those values. Any nation, any continent, any person can adopt those values. The West chose to do that.
"Our Founding Fathers believed the Scriptures and made sure the First Amendment was the first amendment and the Second Amendment was the second amendment, because they understood two things: No matter what laws you passed, God has put it within a human being to speak his mind. You can't outlaw that, and our Founding Fathers knew that. And second, you must recognize that a family will do everything it can to protect itself from destruction from an invader, and that's what believers need to do to protect their country."
Kirk reiterates, "Western values are an extension of the Judeo-Christian construct, specifically New Testament teaching. Western values are a belief in God-granted natural rights, separation of powers and consent of the governed. Western values reject this idea that a singular individual has a mandate to rule over you without question.
"Western values are the fruits of the Enlightenment blended correctly with the truths of the Bible. Western values are why we are able to have the technological advancements, the medical advancements, the communication advancements that we enjoy. Western values, they are really saying biblical values. What they are trying to do is to break, by 2030, biblical values—more specifically, they want to break every single one of the Ten Commandments. Every single one."
