The good news
The United Nations is viewed by many Americans entirely as a humanitarian organization. After all, the United Nations World Food Programme distributes food to those in need around the world. World Food Program USA raises U.S. support for the U.N. World Food Programme (WFP), the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger across the globe. According to the World Food Program USA website, WFP provides food assistance to over 80 million people in 82 countries.
It is wonderful that the U.N. food program is helping people across the world. However, it is difficult to know the intent behind the program. Maybe the U.N. is generally concerned about those who are hungry across the world. Or maybe the U.N. is using the program to advance a particular agenda or multiple agendas.
The U.N. claims to protect human rights, promotes sustainable development, upholds international law, and maintains international peace and security. Those things all sound good on the surface, but should be more clearly defined. And while in some ways the organization may seemingly demonstrate compassion, it can be argued that the “good” that is accomplished isn’t rooted in anything greater than itself. In other words, some speculate that the organization is self-serving, to say the least.
The bad news
Recently, the United Nations has been under fire for a global sex scandal, in which hundreds of Haitian women and children were reportedly raped by United Nations “peace keepers”. However, this is not new behavior for U.N. troops, as a similar instance occurred in Mali approximately one year ago. And of course, the story of Katanga has not been forgotten for those affected in that particular province of the Congo.
The U.N. is promoting a small arms treaty in which specific firearms would be registered throughout the world. Many skeptics of the small arms treaty believe that registration would eventually lead to confiscation. According to Article 5 of the treaty, all countries are mandated to participate in the treaty and they “shall establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.” Of course, the details of the small arms treaty are nothing new to those who have read State Department document 7277.
Agenda 21 is a U.N. sponsored program, which is supposed to promote “sustainable development”. However, it has been criticized by property rights activists and for good reason. Essentially, the United Nations is planning “to co-opt, via individual governments, and eventually, a one-world government, privately held land under the auspices of ensuring its sustainability” according to Tiffany Gabbay of The Blaze.
The U.N. has recently affirmed that abortion is a human right. The U.N. has also been promoting gay marriage as a part of their human rights agenda. Regardless of how you feel about these issues, it is concerning that the U.N. is now defining what a human right is. The reason for concern is that the source of their definition for human rights goes no further than their own agenda. Their morals and values are defined based on whatever benefits their own organization.
Concern about the true agenda
Since its inception, the U.N. has been led by those who wish to build a new world order, and at least some of them have very suspicious pasts. Alger Hiss, who helped establish the U.N., was accused of being a Soviet spy and later convicted of perjury in connection with that accusation. Former Secretary General, Kurt Waldheim served as a first lieutenant in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia in 1942. Referring to that time, he said “I did my duty like hundreds of thousands of Austrians”.
We should be willing to look deeper into the history and future of the United Nations. We should be concerned with the U.N. agenda to build a new world order for several reasons. First of all, we should be concerned that the organization as a whole does not seem to include God in their efforts. We should be concerned about the amount of power the organization is trying to obtain and how it will eventually use that power. We should be concerned that our nation’s sovereignty is suffering due to the globalized politics that the U.N. has proposed.
