I dont think a one-world religion is that far fetched. meowmeow
it does seem unlikely, given the lives spent on so many "sharp edges" throughout history....BUT....it HAS been foretold; Dan 12:1 .... and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation ....Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
during the gulf war, a syracuse basketball player had to be escorted from the floor of the "orange dome" (a HUGE crowd of @ 20,000!)....because his parents had spoken against the war. it was an instructive lesson in "mob rule", and a foreshadow of what awaits those who refuse the mark....

I think the mark of the Beast has been placed over and over since Revelation was written. Refusing the mark is refusing to do evil when everyone else is doing it. Europeans who helped the Jews during WWII. Muslims who expose terrorists before they can maim and kill. Christians who fight the culture of death.
Going with the flow when the flow represents a great evil means accepting the mark, IMO.
BTW, what is 1john2,3&4? I don't know that one from memory.
