I would encourage anyone who really doesn't know the topic to get on a real computer (not handheld device), and do a search on the Satanist "Albert Pike".
"It [Masonry] reverences all the great reformers. It sees in Moses, the lawgiver of the Jews, in Confucius and Zoroaster, in Jesus of Nazareth, and in the Arabian iconoclast, Great Teachers of Morality, and Eminent Reformers, if no more: and allows every brother of the Order to assign to each such higher and even Divine Character as his Creed and Truth require... Masonry is a worship; but one in which all civilized men can unite..." (Pages 525, 526) Pike also said, "The first Masonic teacher was Buddha." (Page 277)
Unprofitable Servant, I think you are making reference to it. as they climb up the ladder they are given more "illumination", so yes the lower rung guys think they are just doing philanthropy sometimes, I guess. the more prestige and influence you get the more you have to lose.
same with Mormons. the lower ones know less, and they are given the secrets as they get higher up.
its the occult.
this should have been dealt with in the churches a LONG time ago. those who spoke out and showed what its about were silenced.
just like Jim, yes there are family relationships to this, not that I have inside information but the effects are intolerable and antichrist. Christians even a generation ago knew that they must leave the occult to follow Christ. Christ does not share space with Lucifer and their other gods, even if they do "philanthropy".
There's lots of "nice guys" out there. that's the wide road brother.
if a man has tied himself with an occult group with secret initiations, it is the job of the brethren and yes the pastor to warn them.
why are these guys coming up to my loved ones with their secret handshakes?? does church leadership know that during fellowship they are secretly finding their masonic "brethren"?
people have been doing this outside of the patents for awhile Jim. I won't bother giving the info out, might insult their monopoly. in fact, my guess would be that that is where they get their ingredients from, you do know that many of their synthetics begin with natural ingredients, not to offend by using the word natural!
you all know it was B that brought us the patriot act, right?
none of this sweep occurring now could've happened unless they got the Christians to surrender the repblc.
and that's what we did during the B admin.
and they built up a survllc state.
and the church was asleep.
and they began databasing everything, and those who were not for it were now the new "t" (the bad guy)
I've long said the current admin is like a crazy teenager. for some reason we bought him a fancy fast driving car, filled it with gas and gave him the keys, then we are surprised that he is driving irresponsibly??
there was a system of checks and balances fought for over the centuries. and it was us that gave it away.
as far as I'm concerned, commnsm is the judgment of God. the response would be to repent, but we'd rather have these arguments with the demoncrats and their abortions and sodomy.
"come out of her my people"
something to consider. it was our pulpits that made this day what it is.
and I'm supposed to love the Stalins and Hitlers or sound the alarm of what we allied ourselves with in the name of "conservatism"?
these guys that have been leading us through the neocon forest, I don't know that they are the ones to be leading us in response to the comm rev.
I certainly wouldn't follow them. If it wasn't their demands for the patriot act and the faux wores in the first place, the comm's wouldn't have had the legal maneuvering powers that they have now.
Now is there a pastor that has shown himself faithful to the ministry and the sharing of the gospel and kept his message pure through the years, he would be the one to give ideas that thousands of pastors follow....
I'm glad they've spoken up. However, I pray it is according to the words Christ has given them to say, not their flesh! Time for people to pray for God to be glorified through a pure and righteous message, not power struggles.
I do not like green shots with ham. I do not like them sam I am. I do not like them with my milk. I do not like them on a train. I do not like what they do to my brain. I do not like them at my drug store. I do not like them at my grocery store. I do not like them when I'm sick, I do not like them when I'm healthy, Sam I am..
Is there anything else on earth besides the giant syringe? shall we make statues and bow to them already?

Yes sister Dolores, that is wonderful! The simplist of things giving glory to God and giving encouragement to others.
I think a lot of people confuse an emotional high, and feeling good about themselves with fellowship with God. But I also think God has been more than generous to us, and His Presence there is joy. I imagine it has to do with a pure heart and what it is a person or a fellowship is seeking. And sometimes the Lord just shows up as a fresh wind to rejuvenate a people and their ministry, and that is a wonderful experience of the whole man.
Mr. Cleaver, we are on opposite ends of the spectrum. I've come to believe that the gospel is not divorced from our every day living but has to be fully applied, giving Christ the preeminence in all things.
And that pastors must speak their conscience, and that this gives glory to God.
The public perspective of pastors who were involved in city life would bring them back as community leaders instead of them being relegated to entertainment.
I'm frankly tired of the happy pastor that says "GOd loves you". I mean, I'm glad for encouragement, but where are the men who are actually involved in our world? those are the men people will remember.
The gospel requires a shedding of all idols. The mainstream pastors of today have forgotten this responsibility, and many who are coming "out of Babylon" are realizing that the gospel can be offensive.
For instance, when sharing with a Catholic, you will have to deal with their Mary worship. well its no different from our secular idols, the hard part is they are so dominant in evangelical churches, many have not "come out of it" and therefore are disconnected between "nightly news" and real life, application of scripture deader than a doornail.
here we talk of world wars, who is covenanted to Christ and by what means, what is the Kingdom of God, and Christ's Kingship today, the relationship between Jews and Christians, and what is the business or purpose of a Christian's time and life.... how could this just be a peripheral issue? I tried to convince myself and failed, it sure would be easier.
I've known too many teachers who do not hold to futurism who are afraid to teach Revelations to not upset the futurists, or can't get hired at a church because they won't put Israel at the top of Christian disciplines or even fired when they speak of the coming tribulation to prepare their people, so I don't think it is a peripheral issue to most futurists, I mean can we not all agree its Dopey's pride and joy?
Mr. Hranek, much of my adult life this very group has been calling for invasions and bombings, no? in their news blogs, their CHristian radio programs, their tv programs, and in their churches (less overtly there but ever as strong) at least since through the 90's. especially the last 13 years. and they switch sides, that's what gets me!! they are nihilistic and call for wore before they take the time to analyze what has gotten us to that place. and why? because they can call for wore but its never their boots on the ground! (someone else holds their bag)
