As our society evolves, the economy and global politics are mutually being glued, and the religion gets stuck between them. It seems that we are going to a global uniphormisation and I'm afraid that we'll have just one religion and One Global Ruler...It will be possible?

You may imagine a global ruler but not a global religion, because the mind sets of people are so very different they will need different doctrines. The universal (not global) truth is that that the God is one, but do we unite even on this?

The book of Revelation says that those who don't conform and worship the beast will be beheaded...taliban anyone?

I hope that it never happens. It would be the same as saying that everyone has to wear the color blue and paint their house green and drive a yellow ford. Who is going to make the decision that we have to believe one way, think one way. Have one form of government. Are you advocating a world order of robots. George Orwell's 1984 or Socialism to the extreme or Communism or what? Under Democracy we are guaranteed freedom of religion, thought, speech, etc. There would never be just one religion so you must be advocating some form of government that is totalitarian. I believe the world is too diverse to ever exist under one form of government unless there is a major war and mass slaughter from an evil source. Other than that, I think we will remain close to what we are for a long time. Shalom~Adoniah

I don't think it is possible, even in the distant future. I think religious differences are too deep. I think the only way the world can be one, is if religion is dropped altogether. I think in the distant future most people will have embraced rational thought and let go of superstition. Those will be good days.

I think it's inevitable! One religion, one government, one world! Better things are on the way! John 17:20-23 (New International Version) Jesus Prays for All Believers 20"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: 23I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

Read the Book of Revelation. And contrary to what the other responder said...it won't be long, and it won't be pretty. BTW...the good guys win.
