Part I. Crestone/Baca, Maurice Strong, and the “New World Religion (?)”
Spiritual seekers in North America eventually hear about Crestone. They make their pilgrimage to this sacred land reminiscent of the Himalayas and home to dozens of spiritual organizations and retreat centers.

Maurice Strong is a Canadian billionaire who has constructed a new age retreat in southern Colorado called the Baca. Many of the world’s elites visit this religious retreat, including many adherents to eastern religions. One well-known actress has built a ‘channeling’ center there and even the Vatican has a representative present… Maurice Strong also is the United Nations Undersecretary for the UNCED (UN Conference on Environment and Development- 1992 Rio Earth Summit). This man is a radical New Ager and environmentalist and travels extensively in Globalist circles. Some of the more radical environmentalists embrace a form of pantheism… called Paganism…. This agenda is nothing more than a revival of the Babylonian mystery religion. Where various forms of divination and occult practices and earth worship are mixed and only certain initiates are given a glimpse of the inner “secret doctrine.” This system is an abomination to God and is spoken of at length in the Book of Revelations (chapter 17).
Mark S. Watson, “Occult Theocracy!”
(The UN religion is) a weird and diabolical convergence of New Age mysticism, pantheism, aboriginal animism, atheism, Communism, socialism, Luciferian occultism, apostate Christianity, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism.
William Jasper, 2002, “The New World Religion: Teaching God’s Children to Worship ‘Divine Nature’”
What does Maurice Strong have to do with American property rights? Everything. The assault on property rights, the entire radical environmental agenda, is being driven by the United Nations. And Maurice Strong is the number one force behind UN environmental policy. Maurice Strong is the leader of a radical contingent of environmentalists that believe that technology and modern industrialization must be stopped. Radical greens believe that all of man’s activities on earth are harmful and therefore not sustainable. They believe that man is a cancer on the earth. Their goal is to slowly cut back and finally reduce human habitat to specific areas while the rest of the world is turned into wilderness.
Maurice Strong and his buddies are the driving force behind a New Age pagan religion known as Gaia. And it is pure nature worship. The Strongs own a 63,000-acre ranch in Colorado known as Baca Grande… Baca Grande, Strong believes, is the Vatican City of the New World Order.
Maurice Strong is also a director of the Temple of Understanding in New York City, where pagan rituals and earth-worshipping ceremonies include escorting sheep and cattle to the alter for blessing. Elephants and camels walk the isles. A soprano sax is used to create the sound of a wolf moaning its extinction at the hands of man. Here, Vice President Al Gore delivered a sermon, as worshippers marched to the alter with bowls of compost and worms…

Still under construction worldwide but complete in New York City there exists an occult temple complex of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding, the UN and, in particular, its’ pyramid-shaped meditation room, and Lucis Trust, originally named Lucifer Trust, repository for the “Ageless Wisdom Teaching,” or revelations from spirits.
