David Rockefeller, the banker and philanthropist with the fabled family name who controlled Chase Manhattan bank for more than a decade and wielded vast influence around the world even longer as he spread the gospel of American capitalism, died on Monday morning at his home in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. He was 101.
A family spokesman, Fraser P. Seitel, confirmed the death.
We often forget the Lord is not willing that any should perish but that ALL should come to repentance. The Scriptures teach clearly that God is not a respecter of persons. God looks upon the heart. Was this man saved? None of us truly know but God. To know that this man may have not been saved leaves a heaviness on the heart. We often forget that the Lord himself wept when He went to a place that would eventually reject Him. Was this man involved in Secret Socities who promoted... you fill in the blank... from what I gather yes... however We as Christians need to remember that the battle is not between flesh and blood but of evil spiritual beings in high places who use men to perform their bidding on this Earth. How many can honestly say myself included and am convicted of... that I prayed for this man to be saved? I did not agree with the things this man stood for and to hear of his death that he may be in eternal torment does not make me rejoice but reminds me of what the Scripture tell us our life is but a vapor here for a brief period and then vanishes away...
I got saved in my 20's, I immediately had thoughts about all my favorite celebrities, olympic heroes, who taught me many things in life, who inspired me during my youth because of their hard work, I would search out the tabloids and news articles to see if they were remotely religious, or even a mention of a church, because I could not picture them going to hell. But the more I matured in Christ, I realized a personal confession of Jesus Christ from a person is worth much more than a second hand account of their church life. If you John Yurich are upset at me condemning most of the worlds heroes to eternal hell, where even a million years of torture and pain is not the end, don't blame me, blame the false teachers who fooled them, including the false Baptists or Protestants, the Catholic Church, Pope, Mother Theressa..etc
Gentlemen please take note of the following section on the scion John Sr. in Wikipedia. It will not only tell about some of the background of John Rockefeller Sr. But it is also a snapshot of religious history and the United States. It was part of http://tinyurl.com/hae4p7g (Charles Finney's Theology Ravaged the Evangelical Movement) the Northern Baptists became part of the American Baptist denomination. Anyway the following is a short section on Rockefeller and has interesting information on the beliefs of many
G'day John y. In Australia there are many different Baptist denominations inside the Baptist umbrella. I assume it's probably even more accentuated in the USA. The Independent Baptist Church is works based salvation. Point blank, that's just what they believe, and that is the opposite of what Christ taught.

You can tell us what you thought of George Pataki. John Y., Many Rockefellers were Eastern Baptist, and if you read some of the material on them they are works orientated. See (Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovahâ€™s Witnesses).
Didn't think much of him, but then Republican candidates for governor in NYS have to make some Democrat noises to get elected at all. That's because we have a massive Democrat growth hanging off our southeast corner.
btw, a Rockefeller Republican is like other RINOs except they have more money.
John Y., before I get to your comment and while I'm thinking about it, D. Trump called himself a "Rockefeller" Republican as pointed out in the Wikipedia article.
I'm going to have tho think about where I saw that remark that John D.'s Sr. mother gave him the works salvation, unfortunately I think it was on a PBS special on the Oil Industry.
Jack Beatty wrote: Eliza Rockefeller's fortitude in adversity gave John an ''abiding respect for women'' and a deep religiosity. From his father's love of money and his mother's love of God, he built up a fortress of righteousness around his business practices. ''I have always regarded it as a religious duty,'' he said as an old man, ''to get all I could honorably and to give all I could.'' The giving was not guilt-whipped penance for the getting, as begrudgers claimed, for even as an impecunious clerk in a Cleveland commodities brokerage, Chernow points out, the 20-year old-Rockefeller tithed to the Erie Street Baptist Mission Church. Through his church, Rockefeller met two people who transformed his life.
You can also find an article on George Pataki in Wikipedia which the first article I mentioned gave as a typical Rockefeller Republican. His social stances were / are obnoxious. See the Wikipedia article, George Pataki supports abortion He wouldn't have gotten my vote!
Yes, Mike of New York, I did see some names in the Wikipedia article. There are social sciences if they are like Pataki are completely unacceptable. You can tell us what you thought of George Pataki.

Rockefeller's judgment... his soul is not not at peace.

Luke Phillips wrote: ... these are certainly not the good old days. Pataki is about as much of a Republican as Senator Jim Webb of Virginia is a Democratâ€”which is to say, by contemporary standards, not very much of a Republican at all. Pataki is an old-line Northeastern Republican, coming out of the tradition and environment that shaped Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Dewey, and Nelson Rockefellerâ€”three other 20th-century GOP Governors of New York. The last of those, Rockefeller, bequeathed his name to the breed of socially moderate, fiscally prudent Republicans ...
The only problem was, I couldn't stomach Nelson Rockefeller when he was around. Anyway, really an excellent article - - and no mention of our present President by the way.
The article that SA picked to describe him, was quite good. I will say one thing he certainly doesn't remind me of any modern Republicans.
Reuters wrote: His fortune, investments in real estate, share of family trusts and other holdings were estimated at $3.3 billion in March 2017 by Forbes magazine. Seitel said Rockefeller had donated nearly $2 billion in his lifetime to organizations including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Rockefeller University.
He remained a lifelong member of the moderate "Rockefeller Republicans" wing of that party, including his 2006 co-founding of Republicans Who Care, to support the party's moderates.

Rockefeller was a Globalist, illuminati bankster. He backed population control and was a member of the shadow government of America. Globalists and one world religion advocates are mourning his death. But I suspect he is in those terrors of Psalm 73 right now.
I once did a lesson where I named some names and asked the students to identify them, nobody could. The names were of powerful and rich people of the late 1880's. The point was how futile it was to hold on to fame, since once you're dead, you will be forgotten after a few generations.
