I have a few JW friends despite being a devout RC myself ( I pray for them all the time!) and they believe that there will be a ban on religion which will bring the end of “this system” soon after. I and they found evidence on the web that such a proposed UN resolution that would essentially ban organized religion has already been drafted but has not yet been passed. This would essentially ban any formal religion, both the practice of it and the encouragement of it. I have heard many people saying it would end global war and strife, and on the surface it may seem like the logical answer to world peace…but at what cost? What one really has to think about is whether you really believe in the Church enough to continue practicing even when faced with jail or death…after all, if you, like me, truly believe that this religion is the truth, then if we die for standing up for our beliefs, we will go to heaven.
Most people I have said it to just laugh and say it is ridiculous and that it would never be passed or at least adhered to, but I think if people were going to be locked up, tortured and killed for practicing their religion, the majority would be having serious second thoughts! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had heard anything about this or had any ideas because it seems to me to be an extremely dangerous threat and we don’t want the JWs to be going around saying “I told you so!!!” if or when it is signed.
