LTRP Note: Recently, we released a booklet/article by Warren B. Smith titled God’s Dream: Satan’s Ultimate Scheme. If you did not have a chance to read it yet, we urge you to do so soon. The news story below (released this week by Vatican News) is yet another example of how the world’s religious leaders are seeking to bring about “God’s Dream” into the world. When you begin to understand what “God’s Dream” is really all about (i.e., God’s dream for man to realize his divinity and oneness), you will see the urgency in this. This term is showing up more and more in evangelical circles as Warren Smith points out. Just last week, yet another instance where we learned of an evangelical mega-church pastor using the term: Pastor Doug Sauder, the lead pastor at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale (the former church of Bob Coy), wrote a sub-section in his book The One Factor: How One Changes Everything titled “God’s Dream.” And there are many other evangelicals pastors, authors, and leaders now using the term, whether they understand the full implication or not. As you can surmise from the following quote by New Ager Neale Donald Walsch, there will be no place for the Cross in “God’s Dream” because man will believe that he himself is God. As Walsch also said (and many now believe), “the era of the single savior is over.”1
God’s “dream,” if you please, is that we will all one day be completely realized [as “God”].2—Neale Donald Walsch

Pope Francis dedicated his Wednesday General Audience to a reflection on his Apostolic Visit to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families. “My presence” in Ireland, he said, “was intended above all to confirm Christian families in their vocation and mission.”
God’s dream for the family
He said the thousands of families that took part “were an eloquent sign of the beauty of God’s dream for the whole human family.” That dream, he continued, “is unity, harmony, and peace in families and in the world”; and he said that God is calling on families “to participate in this dream, and to make the world a home where no one is alone, no one is unwanted, no one is excluded.” Click here to continue reading.
