Is the European Union a Godless Cult

In this coming week, the run up to "The day of Giving of Gifts", I would like my dear reader to consider a fundamental issue of DISCERNMENT.

When it comes to truth about the European Union, how can we tell what is fact and what is fiction?

The proposed EU Constitution greatly strengthens the EU's central bureaucratic mechanisms at the expense of state sovereignty and democratic accountability; but its most controversial feature is what it does not included: i.e. any mention of Europe's Christian heritage.

This omission was by no means an oversight. It was rather a deliberate policy decision by a militantly secularist elite determined to bring about a naked public square barring all opinions based on religious values.

Only a postmodern European Cult could have manufactured a constitution extolling its "cultural, religious and humanist inheritance" while pointedly leaving out any explicit reference to its essential Christian patrimony.

A 'cult' has been described as a pyramid-shaped authoritarian regime with a person or group of people that have dictatorial control. It uses deception in recruiting new members (e.g. The people are NOT told up front what the group is, what the group actually believes and what will be expected of them if they become members). It also uses mind control techniques to keep people dependent and obedient.

Destructive cults understand that to keep believers dependent on them, they must try to neutralise sources of criticism.

However, the Bible teaches that we are to test all teachings (I John 4:1,6), expose those teachings that are false (Eph. 5:11), confront and rebuke the false teachers (Titus 1:9,13), and then separate from those who persist in false teaching (Romans 16:17; Titus 3:10), lest in the end, we are disqualified for service (II Timothy 2:20,21), or worse yet, we are identified with the false teachings and the false teachers themselves (2 John 10,11).
