One world religion headquarters set to open next year

In 2022, the One World Religion Headquarters is set to open. The Abrahamic Family House headquarters will be built on an island in the middle eastern city of Abu Dhabi.

The headquarters is being built in partnership with Pope Francis and Sunni Muslim leader Sheikh Ahmen al-Tayeb, who both signed the Document of Human Fraternity for World Peace.

The One World Religion Headquarters will have three buildings; one building each representing the mosque, church, and synagogue. However, the church is not permitted to have a cross on the building as a method of identifying it, as it is illegal to display a Christian cross on a building in the UAE.

The Abrahamic Family House's declared goal is to promote religious understanding and tolerance, however there are a few significant obstacles. To begin with, Christians are not permitted to proselytise or convert from Islam in Abu Dhabi, which is a part of the United Arab Emirates. The Pope represents Roman Catholicism, in which Christians are able to convert to Islam but Abu Dhabi citizens are not free to choose Christ.

Most Christians interpret the term "One World Religion" to mean the unification of all religions, including Christianity, into a single worldwide religion. Many Christians think that a "One World Religion" would be established by the Antichrist in the final days.

So, if the goal of the One World Religion Headquarters is to promote tolerance and understanding, why is it being built in a Muslim nation where conversion is prohibited and with a Muslim preacher who believes Muslim apostates should be killed? Isn't this the polar opposite of tolerance and acceptance?
