World Vision CONTINUED...
United With Belial
2 Corinthians 6:-15
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
*Note: "Concord" means "agreement, harmony" and "a treaty"

Dave Toycen is President and Chief Executive Officer of World Vision Canada, 29 which various writings also show it's commitment to the UN and it's initiatives. "Prior to his appointment as President in 1996, he served as World Vision Canada's Executive Vice-President and Vice-President of Donor Development for eight years. In his years as a leader with World Vision Canada, the agency's annual income has more than tripled to $144 million annually, making the organization the country's largest humanitarian relief and development agency....He has applied his expertise in marketing and communications to produce more than 50 films, TV specials and advertisements and influenced World Vision's move into television in Canada and the United States. Under his leadership, World Vision communication offices have been established in almost 20 developing countries and more than $750 million has been raised in aid and development for the poor...A Canadian citizen, Toycen holds a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy from Lawrence University in Wisconsin and a master of divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary." 
All countries that have a World Vision office, such as World Vision Canada and World Vision U.S., are part of World Vision International.31 According to Sara Diamond in "Spiritual Warfare,"
"World Vision's 1987 budget was over $145 million, with more than 20 percent coming from the U.S. Agency for International Development and 'gifts in kind'....The U.S. AID is an arm pf the U.S. State Department and its relief and development projects are designed to increase Third World political and economic dependence on the United States. ...AID directly finances World Vision's proselytization of Third World aid recipients...World Vision is best known for its role in helping victims of famine in Ethiopia....A World Vision ad ...1981...asserted that "12 million people are on the brink of death in East Africa," when, according to famine experts, no relief agencies, not even the United Nations, had precise figures in the number of people starving...a World Vision spokesperson conceded that the group had no documentation...World Vision was continuing fundraising appeals for emergency food aid months after Somalia's food crisis had been alleviated...World Vision misinformed the public for its own fundraising expediency.... World Vision has on a number of occasions functioned as an intelligence gathering arm of the U.S. government. In the 1970's World Vision was charged with having collected field data for the CIA in Vietnam. After U.S. troops left the region, World Vision played a major role in the administration of refugee camps...World Vision also became a crucial player in the "yellow rain" campaign to discredit the Soviet Union... 1980, World Vision became one of five agencies working with the United Nations High Commission on Refugees...World Vision was openly critical of CEDEN, ...appointed by the United Nations to coordinate relief efforts...World Vision workers preached against the "communist religious workers" from the other refugee agencies." 32
World Vision International is a founding member of the Global Movement for Children 33, and supports the "Say Yes for Children"34 campaign. The Global Movement for Children website 35 states: "Two international champions of human rights, Nelson Mandela and Graça Machel, are heading the Leadership Initiative, reaching out to leaders from all parts of the world and all sectors of society to jump-start the Global Movement. Beginning in March 2001, the Movement will be asking the world to Say Yes for Children. 36 Through this campaign, children and adults from around the world will be able to speak out on ten imperative actions which must be undertaken in order to improve the lives of children. The results of the campaign will be presented in September 2001 at the Special Session on Children, held by the United Nations General Assembly in New York "
The Say Yes to
Children project states: "The Global Movement for
Children belongs to everyone, and we need partners in every
part of the world –in villages, cities, towns, and
neighborhoods everywhere – to enable as many people as
possible to Say Yes for Children.
Read more about how you can involve others and make this a truly global movement."
If the partnership and concept of "it takes a village to raise a child" comes across in these groups, it was the battle cry of Hilary Clinton for entering into the global family initiative. Children's Rights are being used as a funnel into accepting the UN and it's educational, religious and social engineering plan worldwide. It's called reconstructing society and many Christians are falling prey to the deception.
Say Yes for Children is part of the Netaid Org 37 "online action on extreme poverty." "The initiative was launched by a collaboration between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Cisco Systems, the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet...."
The Global Movement for Children and Say Yes for Children project is based on the UN's Rights of the Child. World Vision's article titled " Imagine A World Where Children are safe..." states, "....World Vision, whose mission is to follow Christ’s example by working with the poor and oppressed, endorses the widely adopted United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). The CRC sets forth international standards for protecting children through safeguarding their rights. Article 19 obliges countries to guard children from violence. Unfortunately, this required protection is often ignored...."
The World Vision Global Movement for Children article explains their involvement. "In 1989, governments around the world almost universally ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The commitment to child rights established with the adoption of the Convention set the scene for the World Summit for Children, which took place in New York the following year.
"The World Summit was the largest ever gathering of world leaders up until that time, led by 71 heads of State and Government who agreed to a Declaration on the Survival, Protection and Development of Children, and a Plan of Action for implementing the Declaration over the next decade...The United Nations will convene a Special Session of the General Assembly, to take place in September 2001 in New York, to review progress made towards the goals set at the World Summit in 1990, and to consider what future action needs to be taken to fulfil the rights of children everywhere. The aim of the Special Session is for world leaders to identify practical solutions to the problems facing children, and to commit to a concrete plan of action to meet those challenges...
"World Vision is playing a key role in the Global Movement for Children. It is a member of the International Steering Committee that has shaped the development of the Movement, and the Rallying Call and Say Yes to Children campaign. It is also a member of the Child Rights Caucus, a coalition of national and international agencies who are promoting key areas of concern regarding children to world leaders who will be attending the Special Session in September."
The World Vision website writes: "The Global Movement for Children is a collective global force of organisations and individuals dedicated to working together to stimulate worldwide commitment to bringing about effective change to benefit children, particularly those living in poverty. Any person or organisation who shares this vision of creating a better world for children has a part to play in the Global Movement.... World Vision is one of the organisations who have teamed together with Unicef to lead the movement for change. But people the world over – whether they are members of trade unions, religious organisations, local authorities, schools, industries, or the media, or celebrities, politicians, or ordinary people – all have the opportunity to take action and "Say Yes for Children" through voting on ten key imperatives of the "Rallying Call"..."Each vote you place will be counted and the results will be presented at the United Nations Special Assembly Special Session on children in September 2001 in New York..."
From the GMC website, the ten key issues from the UN Rights of the Child are:
World Vision goes on to state: "With millions of votes, world leaders at the meeting will know how important children’s rights are to people around the globe, and to influence them to make the strongest possible commitment to creating a better world for children.
"World Vision has valuable expertise from its programme work around the world in areas such as children and armed conflict, child labour, and child sexual exploitation that gives the organisation credibility to speak out on the issues on behalf of children. World Vision will be seeking to add momentum to the Global Movement through the launch of its own advocacy campaign this year, "Imagine a World where Children are Safe", to promote a safer world for children and an end to abuse, exploitation and violence against children.
Around the world, World Vision is dedicated to working with UNICEF, PLAN International, Save the Children and other child focused organisations to raise awareness of the Global Movement for Children and to generate commitment to children’s rights among every sector of society.
This includes lobbying Government's to increase its political and financial commitment to children’s rights and to play its part in global measures to alleviate poverty, which are crucial to achieving the goal ..."
The problem with attempting to eliminate the social ills of this world is to ignore so many Biblical truths, particularly concerning the state of the sinful world that will face God's wrath. What is taking place is the attempt to implement an occult utopia and peace of Biblical prophecy. Even the elimination of wars-although desirable--will not take place.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:6-8 " And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows."
By attempting to usurp Biblical prophecy, what is also being denied is that Christians should have to deal with anything negative. However, we have many precious promises to hold to, no matter the circumstances.
Romans 8:35 " Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?"
