# How the Illuminati are Reordering the Middle East

August 6, 2014

To understand events in the Middle East,
such as the advent of ISIS, we should listen
to revelations made by retired General Wesley Clark
in March 2007:

As early as 2001, the “Pentagon” had plans to
take down
seven Islamic countries, Iraq, Syria,
Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran.

(Updated from Oct.23, 2012)

by Richard Evans
(henrymakow.com)
In 1997, a group of Republicans formed a non-profit organization called the Project For A New American Century (PNAC). In their first white paper, Rebuilding America’s Defenses, they proposed taking down Saddam Hussein, Iraq and then reordering the entire Middle East. Parenthetically, they admitted that selling such plans to the American people would take a long time, “absent some catastrophic catalyzing event like a new Pearl Harbor.” ( p.51)
September 11, 2001 was obviously just what they had in mind.
In 2000, the US Supreme Court selected another Bush as the 43rd US President and he waited until 9/11 to begin reordering the world.

In that connection, in March 2007, retired General Wesley Clark told Amy Goodman on her Democracy Now TV program that as early as September 2001, the Pentagon already had plans to take down seven Islamic countries, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran. If you have not seen the short You Tube of General Clark’s revelations on Democracy Now, it is worth watching
At that time, I was skeptical about such a large US Military operation, because we all knew The Bush Administration lied us into Iraq with phony stories of Weapons of Mass Destruction, yellowcake uranium, mobile biological weapons labs, etc.
In 2007, the US Military only occupied Afghanistan and Iraq, so I asked myself, “How will the White House justify the military cost to the American people of invading Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran?”
By 2011, the answer became clear. The unnecessary wars against Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia and Sudan would be staged covertly as irregular military coups with the US Military and CIA supporting PHONY democracy or “Islamist”movements.
Remember the baloney about ‘Arab Spring’ and the spontaneous ‘Twitter’ revolutions supporting “civil unrest” in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya?
Was the USA behind these civil wars and bogus democracy movements? OF COURSE!
Remember 2011 when Libyan Al-Qaeda could not budge Gaddafi’s Libyan Army, the US and NATO enforced a NO Fly Zone over Libya and launched hundreds of cruise missiles in support of Al-Qaeda and the rebels.
By Oct 20, 2011 Muammar Gaddafi was a dead man and Libya was a war torn shattered nation. But no one in America feels the least bit guilty about America’s role in trashing Libya. Most people believe these events were spontaneous democratic revolutions. Doesn’t anyone remember the PNAC’s plans to reorder the Middle East?

In Sept. 2012, we lost Ambassador Steven in an attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi. The press wants us to think that we brought “freedom and democracy” to Libya, not chaos and death. They want us to believe that there is no Green Resistance to the NATO or its Al-Qaeda allies in Benghazi, but everyone in Libya knows about the Green Resistance, whose members are called “Tahloob” (Arabic for “Gaddafi loyalists”).
In reality, the Green Resistance destroyed the US Consulate in Benghazi September 11, 2012. They have been increasingly active since shortly after the murder of Muammar Gaddafi in October 2011. They strike any NATO target they can, and they execute key Libyans who betrayed Gaddafi and sided with NATO. The Benghazi incident was merely their latest blow against what they see as NATO’s illegal occupation of their country. Ignoring the Tahloob only happens outside of Libya, by the NATO powers and their subservient media.
In Egypt, President Mohamed Morsi of the radical Muslim Brotherhood replaced moderate Hosni Mubarak, and he was subsequently deposed.  While Obama and Romney trade accusations about whether The Obama Administration was guilty of leaving the grounds of the Benghazi Consulate vulnerable, THERE IS NO SERIOUS DISCUSSION REGARDING WHETHER THE US MILITARY SHOULD SUPPORT THESE PHONY REVOLUTIONS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
WAGING WAR WITHOUT PERMISSION
More disturbing is the US Congress is side-stepping its US Constitutional duty to declare war, but the press ignores this failure too. The CIA shouldn’t decide whether we go to war. The US Congress should debate and decide, so Congressmen can be responsible to the American people come election time.
There is a Constitutional debate in America regarding whether Obama is in violation of the War Power Act in regard to Libya, BUT THE MEDIA IGNORES THIS VIOLATION.
“May 20, 2011, marked the 60th day of US combat in Libya (as part of the UN resolution) but the deadline arrived without President Obama seeking specific authorization from the US Congress. President Obama, however, notified Congress that no authorization was needed, since the US leadership was transferred to NATO, and since US involvement is somewhat limited. On Friday, June 3, 2011, the US House of Representatives voted to rebuke President Obama for maintaining an American presence in the NATO operations in Libya, which they considered a violation of the War Powers Resolution.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_Powers_Resolution

CONCLUSION

The purpose of this reordering of the Middle East is to remove or weaken any power that is independent of the Illuminati central bankers, represented by the NATO powers and Israel.

It is progressing well. Libya is in chaos. Syria is in ruins. Iraq is in turmoil. So are Somalia and Sudan. ISIS is establishing a “Caliphate” that reaches from Northern Iraq across Syria to Lebanon.

The only country left standing is Iran, and given its increasingly close ties with Russia, we assume the Illuminati is saving that for a world war.

——

First Comment from Marcos:

The Illuminati strategy in the Middle East makes little sense unless we understand some of their esoteric beliefs. Talmud Jews expect the arrival of Messiah Ben-Yosef, a military leader who will crush Israel’s enemies and enable the world empire of Messiah Ben-David. The occultist Illuminati share a similar belief in a global leader (Christians call him the antichrist) who will rule from Jerusalem.

For these extraordinary events to happen, a traumatizing war must occur first. It should be much easier to promote this total war if all Israel’s neighbors are crazy fanatics prone to violence, and not moderates such as Mubarak. Let the tension grow and nuke them all in retaliation for some false flag or real attack on Tel-Aviv with a dirty bomb or biological weapon launched from Syria or Iraq.

This view would explain why Israel is unnecessarily cruel in his actions against Gaza and Lebanon, targeting civilians with no objective military advantage. The more the Arabs hate Israel, the higher the tension and the closer the total war.

Comment from Jim Perloff:

The Evans article and comment by Marcos are superb.  The 2007 Wesley Clark clip jives completely with Pat Buchanan’s Feb 16, 2004 column  in which he wrote:

“In 1996, in a strategy paper crafted for Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and David Wurmser urged him to ‘focus on removing Saddam Hussein from power’ as an ‘Israeli strategic objective.’ Perle, Feith, Wurmser were all on Bush’s foreign policy team on 9-11. . .
On Jan. 1, 2001, nine months before 9-11, Wurmser called for U.S.-Israeli attacks ‘to broaden the [Middle East] conflict to strike fatally . . . the regimes of Damascus, Baghdad, Tripoli, Teheran and Gaza . . . to establish the recognition that fighting with either the United States or Israel is suicidal.’
‘Crises can be opportunities,’ added Wurmser. On Sept. 11, opportunity struck.”

The elimination of Saddam Hussein, Gadaffi, Mubarak (as well as the intended removal of Assad) are obviously part of long-range plan to throw the Middle East into chaos; 9-11 was the false-flag catalyst to make it happen. As to the probable purpose of this chaos, I could not summarize it better than Marcos has.  Why else is the mainstream media suddenly publishing pictures of Palestinian victims, something it normally never does?  They would love to enrage disorganized Muslims into fighting a war against Israel with its state-of-the art American weapons.

The only interpretation of this massacre is that Israel is a homicidal state completely immune to international conventions and without any respect for civilian lives.

In the light of the actions taken by the Jewish State in the last few days and the overwhelming support for Israel from Jews around the world, it is evident that we are witnessing a clash of civilizations. Humanity is faced with a savage tribe…

# Another jewish myth blown away “God Gave Israel To Jews”

God playing Charlton Heston

“Actually if you read Genesis Exodus and Deuteronomy in Hebrew — as I do — you see that God did not “give” Israel to the Jews/Israelites. We as Jews are raised with the creed that “God gave us the land of Israel” in Genesis — and that ethnically ‘we are the chosen people.”

But actually — and I could not believe my eyes when I saw this, I checked my reading with major scholars and they confirmed it — actually God’s “covenant” in Genesis, exodus and Deuteronomy with the Jewish people is NOT ABOUT AN ETHNICITY AND NOT ABOUT A CONTRACT. IT IS ABOUT A WAY OF BEHAVING.

Again and again in the “covenant” language He never says: “I will give you, ethnic Israelites, the land of Israel.” Rather He says something far more radical – far more subversive — far more Godlike in my view. He says: IF you visit those imprisoned…act mercifully to the widow and the orphan…welcome the stranger in your midst…tend the sick…do justice and love mercy ….and perform various other tasks…THEN YOU WILL BE MY PEOPLE AND THIS LAND WILL BE YOUR LAND.

So “my people” is not ethnic — it is transactional. We are God’s people not by birth but by a way of behaving, that is ethical, kind and just. And we STOP being “God’s people” when we are not ethical, kind and just. And ANYONE who is ethical, kind and just is, according to God in Genesis, “God’s people.”

And the “contract” to “give” us Israel is conditional — we can live in God’s land IF we are “God’s people” in this way — just, merciful, compassionate. AND — it never ever says, it is ONLY your land. Even when passages spell out geographical “boundaries” as if God does such a thing, it never says this is exclusively your land.

It never says I will give this land JUST to you. Remember these were homeless nomads who had left slavery in Egypt and were wandering around in the desert; at most these passages say, settle here, but they do not say, settle here exclusively. Indeed again and again it talks about welcoming “zarim” — translated as “strangers” but can also be translated as “people/tribes who are not you” — in your midst.

Blew my mind, hope it blows yours.”

Here’s a hugely significant story that I suspect will get almost no play outside Palestinian solidarity sites. Mickey Rosenfeld, the Israeli police spokesman, has told BBC reporter Jon Donnison that there are no grounds for believing Hamas ordered the abduction of three Israeli teens on June 12. Rather, the police say, it was carried out by a rogue cell from Hebron with a loose political affiliation to Hamas.

It was those abductions, and Israel’s response in blaming Hamas and rounding up and jailing hundreds of its activists in the West Bank, that triggered Hamas rocket fire that in turn was used by Israel to justify its attack on Gaza, which is currently killing hundreds of civilians.

Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, stated at the time that he had cast-iron evidence that Hamas was behind the abductions and the…

# Masonic Church cults

It has occurred to me only recently that there are a surprising number of new-ish christian churches which have their origins in freemasonry. First up… The Mormons Probably the first church I read about was the Mormon church of Salt Lake City, Utah (also known as the Church of the Latter Day Saints). The so-called christian church that promoted polygamy.

## Sinister Sites – Temple Square, Utah

Jun 8th, 2009 | Category: Sinister Sites

Situated at the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah, Temple Square is the spiritual, cultural and administrative center of the Mormon faith.  This ten acres plot of land includes a Temple, a domed tabernacle and numerous buildings,  monuments and memorials. While this place may seem holy and wholesome, a closer look at the structures reveal the presence of occult, pagan and masonic symbols. A deeper study of those grounds only adds to the controversy regarding Mormonism and reveals the disturbing truth about its real god.
Creepy…

This article’s intent is not to condemn Mormonism as a faith, but rather  to analyze the symbols in Temple Square in an objective matter. A visitor of this religious area finds himself surrounded with symbols esoterically associated with Black Magic, evil or ancient paganism. Why are these symbols visible on supposedly Christian buildings, of all places? Many ex-Mormons have claimed that the LDS secretly leads followers to the worship of Lucifer. Are they right?

## The Temple

The Temple is the centerpiece of Temple Square and acts as the heart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The building itself is stern and imposing and surrounded with many sculptures. It is said to accomplish the same functions as the ancient Temple of Jerusalem. While we can write pages on how this is not true, we’ll focus on the structure itself.

### Inverted Pentagram

The exterior of the Temple contains numerous symbols which are not simply remnants of ancient paganism but directly associated with evil. The most blatant symbol is the inverted pentagram.

This symbol is found all around Temple Square, in multiple forms. An upright pentagram stands for the five elements, protection against malignant spirits and is an embodiment of the Golden Proportion. It also signifies the dominance of the divine spirit on the lower nature of Man. Conversely, an upside down pentagram represents the submission of the spirit to matter and the submission of man to his lowest impulses.

Eliphas Levi’s rendering of the upright and inverted pentagram. Contrarly to popular belief, Levi did not come up with the use of the inverted pentagram as a negative symbol. It was used in ritual magick centuries before the publication of his work.

“The pentagram with one point upwards repels evil, but a reversed pentagram, with two points upwards, is a symbol of the Devil and attracts sinister forces because it is upside down and because it stands for the number 2. It represents the great Goat of the witches’ sabbath and the two upward points are the Goat’s horn.” -Richard Cavendish, The Black Arts

### Sun, Moon and Stars

The walls of the Temple bear Sun stones, phases of the moon and stars (in the form of inverted pentagrams). Those three celestial bodies can be found on ancient pagan temples and their use can be traced back to the times of Baal Worship. Through Mystery Religion, occult orders like the Freemasons have preserved those symbols and still apply them on their own monuments.

### All Seeing-Eye

This classic masonic symbol representing the “Great Architect” is right on the facade of the Temple. It is surrounded by glory and a veil. It most probably represents the initiatic process of the Mormon Church, which is very similar to the one Freemasons go through.

### Secret Handshake

Like Freemasons, Mormons learn secret handshakes and passwords during their initiation process. This handshake is on the facade of the Temple and is similar to the handshakes portrayed on Masonic buildings and monuments such as this one: On top of the handshake is the saying “I am Alpha and Omega”, which is taken from the Book of Revelation. It can be translated as “I am the beginning and the end”. The fact that it is placed on top of the handshake, the symbol representing LDS’s secret doctrine, makes me wonder who is the Alpha and Omega.

### Baptismal Font

Each Mormon Temple has its own baptismal font, mounted on the backs of twelve life-size oxen.  Mormons say it is modeled after the “laver” which was situated at the entrance of Solomon’s Temple. The only thing they’ve forgot to mention is that the laver was used by priests to clean themselves after animal sacrifices (laver means “to clean”). It was not used to baptise people. It was certainly not used for the “baptism of the dead”, a Mormon practice where deceased people become posthumously part of the Mormon church. Numerous scandalous baptisms have taken place where, for example, holocaust victims were baptized without the family’s consent. More recently, Barak Obama’s mother, who died of cancer has been baptised by the Mormons without consent. There is no trace of this disturbing practice in ancient Christianity or Judaism. Ex-Mormons who have witnessed these ceremonies say the rituals dwell in the fields of witchcraft and spirit invocation.

## Museum of Church History and Art

This museum displays exhibits celebrating the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its history. You can find information about their migration, settlements, and the men who have served as prophets and presidents  from 1830 to the present. There is also a special kid’s corner. What better place to display…inverted pentagrams?

Entrance of the Museum

### Inverted Pentagrams

These two pentagrams appear at the entrance of the Museum of Church History and Art. Once again, it is important to stress the significance of this symbol as it is the equivalent of placing an upside down cross right on a church.

“In symbolism, an inverted figure always signifies a perverted power. The average person does not even suspect the occult properties of emblematic pentacles.” -Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

The circled pentagram on the left is particularly significant due to the fact that it is used in Black Magick rituals.

“The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed. The pentagram is used extensively in black magic, but when so used its form always differs in one of three ways: The star may be broken at one point by not permitting the converging lines to touch; it may be inverted by having one point down and two up; or it may be distorted by having the points of varying lengths. When used in black magic, the pentagram is called the “sign of the cloven hoof,” or the footprint of the Devil. The star with two points upward is also called the “Goat of Mendes,” because the inverted star is the same shape as a goat’s head.” – Op. Cit

We can find more pentagrams in the museum in…the kid’s corner.

## The Visitor’s Center

The Visitor’s Center is a tourist favorite but contains the most disturbing symbolism of Temple Square. It basically reveals the real object of worship of Mormonism.

### Christus Statue

The Christus Statue is said to be the icon of the LDS Church and is dramatically displayed in the Visitor’s Center. It is a replica of Bertel Thorvaldsen’s  Christus in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Mormon version is placed in front of an unusual setting: the universe. This might refer to the gnostic concept of “cosmic Christ”. One detail is however striking and unusual. You might know that one of the most basic ways to analyze a work of art is through the relation between light and shadow. Well in this setting, the Christus figure is actually casting a shadow on planet Earth. Isn’t Jesus considered the “Light of World”? Casting a shadow on something symbolically means that is it keeping it in darkness and ignorance. If this figure of Jesus isn’t the source of light, what is then? The answer lies within the rotonda of the Visitor’s Center.

### The Rotonda

The rotonda faces the Christus statue and bears a special kind of inverted pentagram.

Inverted pentagram with elongated bottom point

The bottom point of the pentagram is elongated. This detail which goes unnoticed by most visitors, carries heavy occult meaning. First, the irregular length of the bottom point represents a perversion of the power of Good. Second, this particular pentagram, with the bottom point falling down carries a precise esoteric meaning: the fall of Lucifer, the Fallen Angel, theMorning Star.

“When the upright star turns and the upper point falls to the bottom, it signifies the fall of the Morning Star.” -Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

After establishing this fact, the light and shadow riddle can easily be solved. Lucifer, the light bearer, is considered the source of light of the universe. The figure representing Jesus Christ blocks the source of light on Earth and thus meaning that Christianity has an obscuring effect on mankind. So this setup, who apparently celebrates the coming of Christ on Earth represents in actuality the exact opposite.

The elite of the LDS in front of Christus

Throughout  history, all spiritual currents have regarded light as being the ultimate representation of good, truth, beauty, knowledge and divine wisdom. In all religious art, the source of light is of an utmost importance. Some ex-mormons have claimed that the LDS worships Lucifer in subtle yet deceitful ways. The symbolism in place sure do corroborate their testimonies.

### Cain Offering

Cain’s offering

Another strange feature of the Visitor’s Center is the above arrangement: Adam and Eve kneeling in front of an altar which has fruit on it. This is a reference to Genesis IV, which describes the offerings of Cain and Able to God.

“1. And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. 2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. 4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering. 5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. 6 And the lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? 7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted: and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door: and unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. 8 And Cain talked with Abet his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.” -Genesis, Chapter IV

To sum up the story, Cain and Abel were the sons of Adam and Eve.  Abel was in charge of sheep, while Cain took care of the ground. When it was time to give offerings to God, Abel slew a lamb in sacrifice while Cain gave fruit. God accepted Abel’s gift but rejected Cain’s fruit (the reason for this is unclear). Cain then lost his tempter and ultimately killed his brother. The sculpture displayed at the LDS church portrays Adam and Eve offering fruit to God while a lamb (Abel’s gift) sits there alive and enjoying its non-sacrificed state. One can’t help but wonder: what does this piece represent if not a sense of resentment (maybe even defiance) towards a cruel and unjust god? Why do we portray Cain’s offering which was rejected by God? The meaning of this arrangement falls right into the beliefs of luciferians, who see God as a stubborn tyrant. Biblical and mythological figures who defy God are celebrated by the luciferian doctrine (see article on the Rockefeller Center). Lucifer, the light-bearer is considered to be hidden savior of humanity who brought the gift of godliness to humans.

## Eagle Gate

Situated at the corner of State St. and South Temple, the Eagle gate is yet an other occurrence of an inverted pentagram. We can find on top of it a huge 200 pound eagle clawing a beehive, the symbol of Utah, of Mormonism and coincidentally an important symbol of Freemasonry.

## To Conclude

This article barely scratches the surface on the occult  symbols found at Temple Square. There are numerous esoteric concepts that can be studied such as reflective pools (who embody the notion of “As Above so Below”), phallic and yonic symbols, astronomical references to Saturn and many more. Without even having previous knowledge of the history, philosophy or beliefs of the LDS, a symbol-literate person can grasp the core intent of this church by reading the meaning of their art. The rituals, symbols and modus-operandi of the LDS are directly lifted from Scottish Rite masonry. The hidden meaning of the art at Temple Square incorporates a mix of pagan and subversive symbology and subtely celebrates the worship of Lucifer. I do not claim to be a specialist of Mormonism or of Joseph Smith Jr., the Mormon prophet. I’ve tried to stay as unbiased as possible in the research and composition of this article.  I however know that the scriptures warn the world against false prophets and, from what I’ve gathered, Joseph Smith is as  false as it gets.  I hate to be the one to say it, but someone has to. Stay vigilant.

# Romney’s Mormon Church is Masonic Front

(Who does Romney really serve?) With Romney resurgent in the polls, I re-post this reminder that Obama and Romney represent different wings of a satanic cult, Freemasonry. Mormonism is not a Christian church, but a breakaway faction of Freemasonry.

Accepting a choice between Romney’s Mormonism and Obama’s Socialism makes Americans hapless dupes, complicit in their own subversion and disinheritance. by Henry Makow Ph.D.In the July-August edition of his Revisionist History newsletter, Michael Hoffman lifts the veil on Mormonism once and for all.Citing many reference books, he establishes that Mormonism is a break-away faction of Freemasonry which claimed to be “the true Masonry,” keeping both ritual and dogma, including the worship of Lucifer.Far from being persecuted by non-Masons, the founding prophet Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum Smith were lynched by fellow Masons in retaliation for establishing a competing “church” in violation of Masonic oaths never to reveal its secrets on pain of death.They were assassinated in the Carthage jail in Carthage Ill on June 27, 1844.”The first five Presidents of the Mormon Church — Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, John Taylor, Wilfred Woodruff and Lorenzo Snow — were also made Masons in the Nauvoo (Illinois) while Hyrum (Smith) was the incumbent master of the lodge…” (H. Paul Jeffers, The Freemasons in America, Citadel Press, 2006, pp 87-88)(left, Romney Bain partner makes Masonic triangle hand sign.) Mormon temple rituals mirror Freemasonry including worship of Lucifer. “In the Garden sequence, the patrons listen as Lucifer instructs Adam and Eve that there is no other way to gain the knowledge to become as gods than to disobey the Father and eat the fruit. Mormon theology teachers that Lucifer is the literal son of God and the brother of Jesus…Lucifer instructs Adam and Eve to fashions aprons for themselves like his, out of fig leafs. Lucifer’s apron contains the identical Masonic Square and Compass emblems… The Mormon walks out of these rituals bound to darkness by bloody oaths and occult incantations. He is given over to the spirit of self-exaltation, which caused Lucifer himself to be cast out from the presence of God.” (The Temple of the God-Makers by J. Edward Decker Jr. Former Mormon) Michael Hoffman writes: “The apple pie image by which the Mormon hierarchy beguile both their followers and outsiders is a means for keeping conservative orientated people obedient to the conspiracy against them and this nation. Willard Mitt Romney is a pivotal leader of that conspiracy.” Hoffman says Romney is the candidate of the occult Mormon “Church of  Latter Days Saints.” His finance director, Spencer Zwick, is the son of a Mormon head. Hotel magnate “Willard” Marriott after whom Mitt is named, donated $3 million to his campaign. His foreign policy is run by Zionists. Hoffman says Americans are “leaderless,” controlled by occult secret societies. Once Americans have fulfilled their role as Zionist “Golem,” they will be discarded in “white trash enclaves of self extinguishing degeneracy, illiteracy and slow suicide.” Hoffman says both Romney and Obama are “enemies of Christian civilization.” Hoffman advises his fellow Americans to boycott the November election: (Michelle makes sign of Baphomet) “A mass boycott of the Cryptocracy’s farcical Presidential election is the strongest message which astute American patriots can send by denying both Obama and Romney a mandate and legitimacy….God is not mocked! He does not support evil, whether lesser or any other type.”Hoffman, the author of Judaism’s Strange Gods, is the boldest and smartest critic of Zionist Occupational Government writing today.–Related: Obama’s Masonic Ring & Handshake The Mormon Conspiracy Romney says Boy Scouts Should Admit Homosexuals Mormonism is Luciferian & Masonic1857 Mormon Massacre of Wagon TrainMormons Disguised as Indians Attacked Wagon Trains(Hoffman says their livestock and gold were motive for massacre.)— First Comment from Tony Blizzard:There is more to Mormonism that is not being mentioned. I was enticed into becoming one for a short time. When I quickly realized I was pulled into a scam, I quit. I think it was about a year later, a brother of Cleon Skousen (FBI agent and writer of several anticommunist books) which brother (don’t remember his first name – Mark?) was a big wheel in the San Bernardino, CA, “stake” to which I had been assigned, came to my house and arrogantly tried to treat me as a possession of his masonic stake. During the very antagonistic two or more hour long conversation it came out that the Mormons – at least those at the top – believed that at the end of the present era of the world they would rule the world directly under the Jews (Talmudists). In other words they would be the Talmudic Jews’ Myrmidons. Fact is that Skousen’s last words to me before he went away grumbling were: “Then you would rather be excommunicated than admit that the Jews are God’s chosen people.” I didn’t know it at the time but that statement rings both masonic and “Christian Zionist.” Interesting that it was also the final reason for officially “excommunicating” me from the cult. VERY DISTURBING! Also the LDS secret wedding Temple ceremony is very much like the ritual of the initiate from the film “From Hell.” In the film, he promises to disembowel himself and slit his throat before he ever utters the secrets of the lodge. These are some of the LDS temple wedding vows. ( Just change the word lodge to the word temple.) Third Comment by Dan: The charismatic and charming Ted Bundy converted to Mormonism in 1974 while a University of Utah Law School student living in Salt Lake City. He had already murdered at least nine young women in Oregon and Washington State. While friends described him as devoutly carrying his book of Mormon at all times, he killed at least five more girls in Utah during 1975.Ted Bundy was also an active Republican volunteer for the Seattle office of Nelson Rockefeller’s 1968 Presidential campaign. Bundy was still at Republican Party expense as late as 1974. He made several trips to Aspen which were never explained. Bundy kidnapped dozens of girls in several states with impunity for years until a rural traffic cop pulled him over for speeding in 1974 and discovered his murder gear. He seems to have been protected by Salt Lake City detectives. Despite a growing list of murders in which he was suspect judges stalled and on a number of occasions he ‘escaped’ police custody – in Utah and Colorado. It wasn’t till he disobeyed his laywers advice not to hide in Florida because they had the death penalty. He went straight to Florida and engaged in a full blown killing spree in a sorority house at Florida State in 1978. The official mainstream story is that Bundy was a criminal genius who managed to elude capture for at least six years, and probably more. The story and evidence ran much deeper than what was in the press. Still, during the 1980’s media wasn’t completely controlled, and local newspapers released bits of information that have been swept under the rug ever since. In the Spokane Daily Chronicle – Feb 3, 1976, there was an Associated Press article “POLICE FILE HINTS AT THE OCCULT”. The article said a Seattle occult crimes division folder called “File 1004″ connected “A Satanic cannibal murder in Montana” to “the disappearance of Northwest women in Oregon and Washington”. File 1004 contained reports from several ‘tipsters; about a man named Ted who held cult meetings, talked about the occult and Devil worship, and set up strange shrines in the forest”. One witness said Ted was a “Jesus freak”. The mix of devout Mormonism and secret life of Satanic acts, the name Ted, and the fact that the disappeared women referred to by the Spokane Daily Chronicle later turned out to be some of Bundy’s victims. “File 1004″ has long since vanished.

So, moving on… Next up… The Scientologists Above is the logo for the Church of Scientology cult. Notice the two Illuminati Pyramids! HUBBARD AND THE OCCULT ***** By Jon Atack (Part one of four parts) I stand before you having been accused in print by L. Ron Hubbard's followers of having an avid interest in black magic. I would like to put firmly on record that whatever interest I have is related entirely to achieving a better understanding of the creator of Dianetics and Scientology. Hubbard's followers have the right to be made aware that he had not only an avid interest, but that he was also a practitioner of black magic. Today I shall discuss these matters in depth, but I shall not repeat all of the proofs which already exist in my book A Piece of Blue Sky (1). Scientology is a twisting together of many threads. Ron Hubbard's first system, Dianetics, which emerged in 1950, owes much to early Freudian ideas (2). For example, Hubbard's "Reactive Mind" obviously derives from Freud's "Unconscious". The notion that this mind thinks in identities comes from Korzybski's General Semantics. Initially, before deciding that he was the sole source of Dianetics and Scientology (3), Hubbard acknowledged his debt to these thinkers (4). Dianetics bears marked similarites to work reported by American psychiatrists Grinker and Speigel (5) and English psychiatrist William Sargant (6). The first edition of Hubbard's 1950 text Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health (7) carried an advertisment for a book published a year earlier (8). Psychiatrist Nandor Fodor had been writing about his belief in the residual effects of the birth trauma for some years, following in the footsteps of Otto Rank. In lectures given in 1950, Hubbard also referred to works on hynopsis which had obviously influenced his techniques (9). The very name "Dianetics" probably owes something to the, at the time, highly popular subject of Cybernetics. (10). By 1952, Hubbard had lost the rights to Dianetics, having bailed out just before the bankruptcy of the original Hubbard Research Foundation. He had also managed to avoid the charges brought against that Foundation by the New Jersey Medical Association for teaching medicine without a license (11). In a matter of days in the early spring of 1952, Hubbard moved from his purported "science of mental health" into the territory of reincarnation and spirit possession. He called his new subject Scientology, claiming that the name derived for "scio" and "logos" and meant "knowing how to know". However, Hubbard was notorious for his sly humour and "scio" might also refer to the Greek word for a "shade" or "ghost". Scientology itself had already been used at the turn of the century to mean "pseudo-science" and in something close to Hubbard's meaning in 1934 by one of the proponents of Aryan racial theory (12). Other possible links between Hubbard's thought and that of the Nazis will be made clear later in this paper. Scientology seems to be a hybrid of science-fiction and magic. Hubbard's reflection on philosophy seem to derive largely from Will Durant's Story of Philosophy (13) and the works of Aleister Crowley. Aleister Crowley is surely the most famous black magician of the twentieth-century. It is impossible to arrive at an understanding of Scientology without taking into account its creator's extensive involvement with magic. The trail has been so well obscured in the past that even such a scholar as Professor Gordon Melton has been deceived into the opinion that Hubbard was not a practitioner of ritual magic and that Scientology is not related to magical beliefs and practices. In the book A Piece of Blue Sky, I explored these connections in detail. The revealations surrounding Hubbard's private papers in the 1984 Armstrong case in California makes any denial of the connections fatuous. The significances of these connections is of course open to discussion. The chapter in A Piece of Blue Sky that describes Hubbard's involvement with the ideas of magic is called His Magickal Career. I hope I shall be excused for relying upon it. I shall also here describe further research, and comment particularly upon Hubbard's use of magical symbols, and the inescapable view that many of the beliefs and practices of Scientology are a reformation of ritual magic (14). In 1984, a former close colleague of Hubbard's told me that thirty years before when asked how he had managed to write Dianetics: The Modern Science Of Mental Health in just three weeks, Hubbard had replied that it had been automatic writing. He said that the book had been dictated by "the Empress". At the time, I had no idea who or what "the Empress" might be. Later, I noticed that in an article printed immediately prior to the book Dianetics, Hubbard had openly admitted to his use of "automatic writing, speaking and clairvoyance" (15). However, it took several years to understand this tantalising reference to the Empress. In the 1930's, Hubbard became friendly with fellow adventure writer Arthur J. Burks. Burks described an encounter with "the Redhead" in his book Monitors. The text makes it clear that "the Redhead" is none other than Ron Hubbard. Burk said that when the Redhead had been flying gliders he would be saved from trouble by a "smiling woman" who would appear on the aircraft's wing (16). Burk put forward the view that this was the Redhead's "monitor" or guardian angel. In 1945, Hubbard became involved with Crowley's acolyte, Jack Parsons. Parsons wrote to Crowley that Hubbard had "described his angel as a beautiful winged women with red hair, whom he calls the Empress, and who had guided him through his life and saved him many times." In the Crowleyite system, adherents seek contact with their "Holy Guardian Angel". John Whiteside Parsons, usually known as Jack, first met Hubbard at a party in August 1945. When his terminal leave from the US Navy began, on Dec 6th, 1945, Hubbard went straight to Parsons' house in Pasadena, and took up residence in a trailer in the yard. Parsons was a young chemist who had helped set up Jet Propulsion Laboratories and was one of the innovators of solid fuel for rockets. Parsons was besotted with Crowley's Sex Magick, and had recently become head of the Agape Lodge of the Church of Thelema in Los Angeles. The Agape Lodge was an aspect of the Ordo Templi Orientis, the small international group headed by Aleister Crowley. Parsons' girlfriend soon transferred her affection to Hubbard. With her, Hubbard and Parsons formed a business partnership, as a consequence of which Parsons lost most of his money to Hubbard. However, before Hubbard ran away with the loot, he and Parsons participated in magical rituals which have received great attention among contemporary practitioners. Parsons and Hubbard together performed their own version of the secret eighth degree ritual (17) of the Ordo Templi Orientiis in January 1946. The ritual is called "concerning the secret marriage of gods with men" or "the magical masturbation" and is usually a homosexual ritual. The purpose of this ritual was to attract a women willing to participate in the next stage of Hubbard and Parsons' Sex Magick. Hubbard and Parsons were attempting the most daring magical feat imaginable. They were trying to incarnate the Scarlet Woman described in the Book of Revelation as "Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlot and Abominations of the Earth...drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus."(18). During the rituals, Parsons described Babalon as "mother of anarchy and abominations". The women who they believed had answered their call, Majorie Cameron, joined in with their sexual rituals in March 1946. Parsons used a recording machine to keep a record of his ceremonies. He also kept Crowley informed by letter. The correspondence still exists. Crowley wrote to his deputy in New York "I get fairly frantic when I contemplate the idiocy of these louts". Crowley was being disingenous. His own novel The Moonchild describes a ritual with a similar purpose. Further, the secret IXth degree ritual of the Ordo Templi Orientis (19) contains "Of the Homunculus" in which the adept seeks to create a human embodiment of one of the energies of nature - a god or goddess. The ritual says "to it thou are Sole God and Lord, and it must serve thee." In fact, Hubbard and Parsons were committing sacrilege in Crowley's terms. Crowley respelled "Babylon" as he respelled "magic". His magick was entirely dedicated to Babalon, the Scarlet Woman. Crowley believed himself the servant and slave of Babalon, the antichrist, styling himself "The Beast, 666". For anyone to try to incarnate and control the goddess must have been an impossible blasphemy to him. Crowley, after all, called Babalon "Our Lady". Hubbard and Parsons attempt did not end with the conception of a human child. However, just as Crowley said that "Gods are but names for the forces of Nature themselves" (21), so it might be speculated that Hubbard embodied Babalon not in human form, but through his organization. Parsons sued Hubbard in Florida in July 1946, managing to regain a little of his money. The record of their rituals was later transcribed and has since been published as The Babalon Working (22). Parsons made a return to Magick, writing The Book of The Antichrist in 1949 (23). Parsons pronounced himself the Antichrist. In a scientology text, Hubbard spoke favourably of Parsons, making no mention of their magical liason (24). A Piece of Blue Sky covers Hubbard's involvement with Parsons in much greater detail than I have given here. Hubbard's interest in the occult was kindled long before he met Parsons. It dates back at least to his membership of the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis or AMORC, in 1940. Hubbard had completed the first two neophyte degrees before his membership lapsed, and later there were private complaints that he had incorporated some of the teaching he had promised to keep secret into Scientology (25). Having stolen Parsons' girl and his money, Hubbard carried on with magical practices of his own devising. Scientology attempted to reclaim documents which recorded these practices in its case against former Hubbard archivist Gerald Armstrong. Some$280,000
was paid to publishers Ralston Pilot to prevent publication of
Omar Garrison's authorised biography of Hubbard.  However,
Garrison retained copies of thousands of Hubbard's documents and
showed me one which had been referred to in the Armstrong trial.
The Blood Ritual is an invokation of the Egyptian goddess Hathor,
performed by Hubbard during the late 1940's.  As the name
suggests, the ritual involved the use of blood.  Hubbard mingled
his own blood with that of his then wife (the girlfriend he had
stolen from Parsons and with whom Hubbard contracted a bigamous
marriage.)

In a 1952 Scientology lecture, Hubbard referred to "Aleister
Crowley, my very good friend" (26). In fact, the two black
magicians never met, and Crowley expressed a very low opinion of
the man who he saw had tricked his disciple Jack Parsons. Even
so, Hubbard had a very positive regard for Crowley, calling his
work "fascinating" (27) and recommending one of his books to
Scientologists. Having referred to Crowley as "The Beast 666",
Hubbard said that he had  "picked a level of religious worship
which is very interesting." (28). He also made it clear that he had
read the fundamental text of the Crowley teaching, The Book of
the Law (29).

### Freemasonry Church of Scientology.

Lafayette Ronald Hubbard (March 13, 1911 – January 24, 1986), better known as L. Ron Hubbard (and often referred to by his initials, LRH or as Elron), was an American pulp fiction author and the founder of the Church of Scientology.
After establishing a career as a writer, becoming best known for his science fiction and fantasy stories, he developed a self-help system called Dianetics which was first published in May 1950. He subsequently developed his ideas into a wide-ranging set of doctrines and rituals as part of a new religious movement that he calledScientology. His writings became the guiding texts for the Church of Scientology and a number of affiliated organizations that address such diverse topics as business administration, literacy and drug rehabilitation.
Masonic Occult involvement
In August 1945 Ronald Hubbard moved into the Pasadena mansion of John “Jack” Whiteside Parsons. A leadingrocket propulsion researcher at the California Institute of Technology and a founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Parsons led a double life as an avid occultist and Thelemite, follower of the English ceremonial magician Aleister Crowley and leader of a lodge of Crowley’s magical order, Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO).He let rooms in the house only to tenants who he specified should be “atheists and those of a Bohemian disposition”.

Parsons and Hubbard collaborated on the “Babalon Working“, a sex magic ritual intended to summon an incarnation of Babalon, the Mother of Abominations. It was undertaken over several nights in February and March 1946 in order to summon an “elemental” who would participate in further sex magic. As Richard Metzgerdescribes it,
Parsons used his “magical wand” to whip up a vortex of energy so the elemental would be summoned. Translated into plain English, Parsons jerked off in the name of spiritual advancement whilst Hubbard (referred to as “The Scribe” in the diary of the event) scanned the astral plane for signs and visions.

1/4 BBC Panorama: Los Secretos de Scientology (Cienciología)

All the Big Religions are New World Order Controlled As shocking as it sounds, all of the mainstream religions of the world are a part of the New World Order, and are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. All of these religions are working to unite the masses of this world into a One-World Religion. You have been lied to my friend. Few people in the world today are aware of just how much Satan has infiltrated organized religion. The Word of God warns us in 2nd Corinthians 11:13-14 that Satan and his false teachers always come to us in sheep’s clothing to deceive us … “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” Our only defense is the incorruptible Word of God. The Bible also warns us in 2nd Timothy 4:3 that in the last days people will no longer listen to the truth. Note that all Scripture references are from the trustworthy King James Bible … “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.” All we see on TV are greedy televangelists begging for more money, telling people what they want to hear—promises of health, wealth, and prosperity in exchange for your money. May I say, salvation is not found in ANY religion; but rather, in a Person—The Lord Jesus Christ. No amount of good works can take a person to Heaven. We need Christ’s righteousness (Romans 4:5-6), because we have no self-righteousness to offer God (Isaiah 64:6). Only through the precious blood of Jesus Christ can a person have their sins forgiven, and be saved eternally (1st Peter 1:18,19). Salvation is freely given (Romans 5:15), freely offered (Romans 10:13), and freely received (Revelation 22:17). Salvation is receiving, not giving. Eternal life is the gift of God (Romans 6:23). The Word of God clearly states in Romans 4:5 … “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” The Biblical Gospel excludes ALL self-righteousness! The Occult Connection We see the occult everywhere we look nowadays. The most common symbols are the illuminati pyramid and the all-seeing eye of Horus, which is displayed on the back of every U.S. one-dollar bill. The eye enables one to see. The Eye of Horus represents those in the highest order of the Illuminati who are enlightened, having privileged information concerning what’s really going on in the world. They control the world, via THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS and other international groups. Of course, any student of the Bible already knows that Satan is the god of this sinful world, and it is no mystery. The detached capstone above the pyramid base means that the New World Order is not complete yet. The reign of the Antichrist will be the culmination of the New World Order. Everything happening today in the world is preparing the world, conditioning the masses, to receive the Antichrist. This is why young people have been led to idolize their favorite heathen singers, and the Pope is worshipped, and Obama is worshipped, and people are infatuated with shows like American Idol. If the Antichrist were to come today, the masses of this world WILL WORSHIP HIM. Revelation 13:4 and 13:8 tell us that ALL that dwell upon the earth will worship Satan [the Dragon] and the Beast [the Antichrist]… “And they WORSHIPPED the Dragon which gave power unto the Beast: and they WORSHIPPED the beast, saying, Who is like unto the Beast? who is able to make war with him? … And all that dwell upon the earth shall WORSHIP him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” We see much worship of the Dragon today, and they WILL worship the Beast when he appears. 2nd Corinthians 4:4 teaches that Satan is the god of this sinful world. The Devil controls the world through occult (secret) organizations, who’s members are devout followers of Luciferianism. “Illuminati” is a term used to refer to the occult-inspired leaders of this world. Hitler was infatuated with the occult, as were many of histories top leaders. George W. Bush and John Kerry are BOTH members of the occult group, Skull and Bones (represented by a skull over two crossed bones). What’s even more disturbing is that we see the exact same Satanic emblem displayed on the Catholic cross below…

Iglesia Ni Christo (Philippines)

ING ‘churches’ all share the same design, size is the only variation

So here is a new game all the family can play: using the keys below, how many masonic symbols can you spot on the INC inc logo?

# INFOGRAPHIC: What you should know about the Iglesia ni Cristo

MANILA, Philippines – This day in 1914, the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) was officially registered by Felix Manalo, a Catholic who became dissatisfied with theological teachings he grew up with. Manalo came up with new-found doctrines that have become the foundation of a new church which he initially established in Sta Ana, Manila. From its humble beginnings in Manila, the INC has gained a nationwide, and even worldwide, following. After 99 years, INC has remained alive, and has become a significant part of history. Its large following has become a vital part of the country’s social and political life through the years. It has been known to lobby for government posts for members of its church. Among its members who were appointed to various posts are Land Transportation Office chief Virginia Torres, former Justice secretaries Serafin Cuevas and Artemio Tuquero, former Court of Appeals Justice Nicolas Lapeña Jr, former National Bureau of Investigation chiefs Reynaldo Wycoco and Magtanggol Gatdula, and former Philippine National Police chief Edgardo Aglipay. Political leaders and even presidential aspirants have sought audiences with the Manalos, seeking their endorsement. Debate over whether the INC has remained influential continues, but most political strategists prefer to err on the side of caution, still opting to seek the blessing of the INC head. The group is now headed by the founder’s grandson, Eduardo Manalo – the 3rd person to have become the groups’ leader. In commemoration of their anniversary, Rappler has put together an infographic displaying some information about the Iglesia ni Cristo- Rappler.com Of particular interest in the infographic linked above are the following:

1. In the services, men are segregated from women
2. They are prohibited from being engaged or marrying anyone not in the cult
3. Prohibited from joining labour unions
4. Prohibited from filing any complaints or action against any brother in any courts of law for any case, civil or criminal
5. Prohibited from using computers to track any financial matters or records of the congregation.

# Famous Iglesia ni Cristo personalities

Known for its influence on Philippine society, the INC counts prominent political leaders, celebrities, and media personalities among its ranks

Known for its influence within Philippine society, the INC counts prominent political leaders, celebrities, and media personalities among its ranks.

Ferdinand Topacio

Lawyer

Known as the lawyer of former First Gentleman Mike Arroyo, he has been counsel, too, for celebrities. But it’s not just his willingness to take on high-profile cases that has thrust him into the national spotlight; the lawyer from Cavite has displayed a knack for mastering the art of being quotable.

Who could forget the controversial gamble he made in 2011, when he offered to have his testicles removed in a bid to assure the government that the Arroyos would return to the Philippines?

And his fascination with Adolf Hitler – whose image hangs as a painting on his office wall – has even made it to the New York Times.

Asked what drew him to INC, Topacio launched into an impassioned speech on the group’s Bible-based teachings and sense of kinship.

“By virtue of the fact that members called you ‘brother,’ they treat you like a true sibling,” he said.

This idea of unity drives the INC’s practice of voting as a bloc and bans members from filing cases against fellow INC brothers. But Topacio said he has never been at odds with the INC doctrines and his own beliefs as a lawyer.

Most of the time, he said, a simple apology would suffice between clients who are in conflict with INC members.

We only participate in politics during elections, we don’t interfere in governance. But because of our doctines, when it comes to a decision, we are one.

Anthony Taberna

Taberna considers his INC beliefs as the solid foundation behind his hard-hitting news commentaries. Taberna said the leadership has never dissuaded him from airing his own views, but the line is drawn when it comes to voting.

Bloc voting is considered part of doctrine, and for the journalist who’s been an INC member since birth, respect for his religion reigns supreme.

Taberna admitted there have been candidates supported by the INC that he personally disliked. But he chose to respect the decision of the leadership. He said in a Star interview. “I always think: why did I become part of a religion if I’ll end up disrespecting the decision of the INC leadership?”

Kathryn Bernardo

Actress

Despite her closeness with her onscreen partner, the two cannot have an official relationship because Bernardo is an INC member.

INC members cannot have relationships with non-members of their church.

In interviews before her 18th birthday celebration, Bernardo said she had once invited Padilla to attend an INC service. The two had also talked about the differences in teachings between INC and Padilla’s Catholic beliefs.

Bernardo also said she won’t force Padilla to convert to INC for her sake. But asked if she was willing to sacrifice love for religion, Bernardo said she holds God above all else – but isn’t willing to speak with finality on the issue. – Rappler.com

That all seems above board and tickety-boo then! And not entirely original either; see the next cultish group, the Exclusive Brethren (below).

### Iglesia ni Cristo® is a Masonic Church. It’s in its Logo says an American blogger

The INC™’s logo can’t escape an American blogger Mary Tomaselli‘s judgment that it is indeed a MASONIC church.  Here is what she’s thinking about the Iglesia ni Cristo® church she found at Forest Hills, NY. [Read also my earlier post What's in the INC logo?]
I was driving through Forest Hills, N.Y. a neighborhood near me when I came upon the church you see in the photo above. It was huge and very imposing, a structure I had never seen before. The architecture was strange and modern-looking. It turned out to be the Iglesia Ni Christo, a church I’d never heard of.

That this church had been built in Forest Hills was unusual, I thought, but in my research I found out that 61.3% of New York City’s total Filipino population live in Queens of which Forest Hills is one neighborhood. When I went to WikipediaI found a photo of the Eglesia Ni Cristo church in Quezon City, The Philippines. Here it is:

If you click on the Wikipedia link above you’ll see the architectural details of the Forest Hills church are VERY similar to the church in Quezon City.

Finally I want to show you the logo of the church which sits boldly on the front of the church as it faces the street.

What I noticed in particular was the combination of Christian and Masonic symbols. Apparently Felix Manalo, the church’s messenger from God, was a freemason.

### What’s in the INC Logo?

Finally we found an attempt to explain the INC Logo. Note, this explanation from one of its members (probably a Minister himself) is not official. See below. (Thanks to readmeinc dot blogspot dot com).
1. The bird is the dove or Holy Spirit 2. The flame is the light of salvation 3. The shield is the shield of faith 4. The scale represents the equality of the justice of God; 5. The crown is the crown of eternal life 6. The lamb is the Lord Jesus Christ 7. The book is the Bible 8. The two scrolls seen in the Bible represent the OT and NT; 9. The upside down triangle means the equality of the members or brotherhood (Mt. 23:8); 10. White is holiness 11. Green is love 12. Red is courage The logo of the INC has been used since 1919 but only appeared on its buildings of worship since the 1950s
On the contrary, here’s what was thought about their logo (source: PinoyExchange.com)

On this image below, you’ll see a craftily “hidden” pattern of a “pentagram” on the compass and square. Observe really closely. On this image below, you’ll see the scale, interlaced compass and square, and the craftily “hidden” pentagram. Now, this is a third coincidence already between the stark similarities between INC and Freemasonry. What do you call a 3rd coincidence? Is there such a thing in this world? Deliberate, copied, or just coincidence? Or, perhaps, they are the same institution! Now, we see here on the image below a torch on top of the compass. Combining the craftily hidden pentagram here with the torch we have this, observe closely and take note: We see here on the image below, a torch on top of the pentagram, with the torch in “drawing form”. Observe and take note.

And here is another from PinoyCatholic

Which is fairly explained by MonksHobbit.
The interlaced square and compass denotes Freemasonry 1. The crown at the center denotes the Order of Amaranth, a fraternal organization of master masons and their properly qualified female relatives 2. The compass, inverted triangle, and legs denotes the Order of the Eastern Star 3. The light rays at the background denotes the sun god. 4. The scales of justice denotes the Scales of Maat, the Egyptian goddess of truth, order, balance, and justice 5. The bible inside the inverted triangle and compass refers to the use of the bible in masonic lodge for swearing oaths 6. The dove and the color white denotes purity and innocence 7. The color red denotes courage, zeal, and blood of life–the color of Royal Arch Masonry 8. The color green denotes spiritual initiation into the high mysteries of life and god 9. The color blue recalls the dome of the heavens which denotes universal brotherhood and friendship 10. The inverted triangle points to the 22nd ray which probably signifies a 22nd degree mason–Knight of the Royal Axe. To be fair to INC, I’ll try to provide a biblical meaning to the INC logo, with their doctrines in mind: 1. The dove is the dove of Noah. Just as the evil world was washed away by the flood and a new world was born, so was the apostate Catholic Church was abandoned by God and He established a new church, Iglesia ni Cristo, at the end of time. 2. The sun’s rays and the bible denotes the Prologue of John: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (Jn 1:1-5) Surprisingly, this passage proves the divinity of Christ, which INC does not believe. 3. The lamb and dove denotes the Baptism of Christ: “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. He is the one of whom I said, ‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’ I did not know him, but the reason why I came baptizing with water was that he might be made known to Israel.” John testified further, saying, “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from the sky and remain upon him. I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the holy Spirit.’” Surprisingly, the INC also does not believe on the divinity of the Holy Spirit. 4. The Triangle denotes the Dogma of the Holy Trinity, which states that there are three Persons in one God. Christ himself gave the following Trinitarian formula for Bapstism: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Mt 28:19-20). Surprisingly, INC does not believe on the Trinity. Thus, INC uses Christian symbols, but does not believe on the meaning of the symbols. (The INC has not still provided an official interpretation of their logo). Now, where is the Sign of the Cross? I cannot find any. 1. “Then he called to the man dressed in linen with the writer’s case at his waist, saying to him: Pass through the city (through Jerusalem) and mark an X on the foreheads of those who moan and groan over all the abominations that are practiced within it. To the others I heard him say: Pass through the city after him and strike! Do not look on them with pity nor show any mercy! Old men, youths and maidens, women and children–wipe them out! But do not touch any marked with the X; begin at my sanctuary. So they began with the men (the elders) who were in front of the temple.” The Hebrew letter X is Tav (or Taw) whose ancient form is the cross †, from which came the Greek letter Tau . 2. “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily 11 and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” (Lk 9:23-24) 3. “If anyone says to you then, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. False messiahs and false prophets will arise, and they will perform signs and wonders so great as to deceive, if that were possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told it to you beforehand. So if they say to you, ‘He is in the desert,’ do not go out there; if they say, ‘He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For just as lightning comes from the east and is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather. “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels 18 with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.” (Mt 24:23-31) The sign of the Son of Man is the cross because his corpse hung there. 4. “For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with the wisdom of human eloquence, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning. The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the learning of the learned I will set aside.” Where is the wise one? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made the wisdom of the world foolish? For since in the wisdom of God the world did not come to know God through wisdom, it was the will of God through the foolishness of the proclamation to save those who have faith. For Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are called, Jews and Greeks alike, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.” (1 Cor 1:17-24) So why is there no Sign of the Cross in the INC logo? Is INC inviting the wrath of God to destroy its members starting from its temples? Does INC wish to follow Christ but without a cross in its temples to carry? Does INC await the coming of Christ but thinks that the Sign of the Son of Man is not the cross but a compass? Does INC wish to proclaim the cross of Christ like St. Paul or rather the message of Felix Y. Manalo, whom they consider as an angel? As St. Paul said: “But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach (to you) a gospel other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be accursed! As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches to you a gospel other than the one that you received, let that one be accursed!” (Gal 1:7-9). Lucifer is also an angel of light because in Latin, the word “Lucifer” means “Light-Bringer” (from lux, lucis, “light”, and ferre, “to bear, bring”). Lucifer is he whom the Freemasons worship. As Christ said: “And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.” (Mt 6:23)

And lastly, here’s what Pinoy Catholic notices in the INC Logo: here and pasugo-1914.  Any originality in their logo?

# Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) logo: Christian or Masonic symbol?

I found an interesting article from Pinoy Catholic on the meaning of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) logo:

1. The interlaced square and compass denotes Freemasonry
2. The crown at the center denotes the Order of Amaranth, a fraternal organization of master masons and their properly qualified female relatives
3. The compass, inverted triangle, and legs denotes the Order of the Eastern Star
4. The light rays at the background denotes the sun god.
5. The scales of justice denotes the Scales of Maat, the Egyptian goddess of truth, order, balance, and justice
6. The bible inside the inverted triangle and compass refers to the use of the bible in masonic lodge for swearing oaths
7. The dove and the color white denotes purity and innocence
8. The color red denotes courage, zeal, and blood of life–the color of Royal Arch Masonry
9. The color green denotes spiritual initiation into the high mysteries of life and god
10. The color blue recalls the dome of the heavens which denotes universal brotherhood and friendship
11. The inverted triangle points to the 22nd ray which probably signifies a 22nd degree mason–Knight of the Royal Axe.

To be fair to INC, I’ll try to provide a biblical meaning to  the INC logo, with their doctrines in mind:

1. The dove is the dove of Noah.  Just as the evil world was washed away by the flood and a new world was born, so was the apostate Catholic Church was abandoned by God and He established a new church, Iglesia ni Cristo, at the end of time.
2. The sun’s rays and the bible denotes the Prologue of John: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (Jn 1:1-5)  Surprisingly, this passage proves the divinity of Christ, which INC does not believe.
3. The lamb and dove denotes the Baptism of Christ: “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. He is the one of whom I said, ‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’ I did not know him, but the reason why I came baptizing with water was that he might be made known to Israel.” John testified further, saying, “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from the sky and remain upon him. I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the holy Spirit.’”  Surprisingly, the INC also does not believe on the divinity of the Holy Spirit.
4. The Triangle denotes the Dogma of the Holy Trinity, which states that there are three Persons in one God.  Christ himself gave the following Trinitarian formula for Bapstism: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Mt 28:19-20). Surprisingly, INC does not believe on the Trinity.

Thus, INC uses Christian symbols, but does not believe on the meaning of the symbols.  (The INC has not still provided an official interpretation of their logo). Now, where is the Sign of the Cross?  I cannot find any.

1. “Then he called to the man dressed in linen with the writer’s case at his waist, saying to him: Pass through the city (through Jerusalem) and mark an X on the foreheads of those who moan and groan over all the abominations that are practiced within it.

Old men, youths and maidens, women and children–wipe them out! But do not touch any marked with the X; begin at my sanctuary. So they began with the men (the elders) who were in front of the temple.” The Hebrew letter X is Tav (or Taw) whose ancient form is the cross †, from which came the Greek letter Tau $\tau$.
2. “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily 11 and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” (Lk 9:23-24)
3. “If anyone says to you then, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. False messiahs and false prophets will arise, and they will perform signs and wonders so great as to deceive, if that were possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told it to you beforehand. So if they say to you, ‘He is in the desert,’ do not go out there; if they say, ‘He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For just as lightning comes from the east and is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather. “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then thesign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels 18 with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.” (Mt 24:23-31)  The sign of the Son of Man is the cross because his corpse hung there.
4. “For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with the wisdom of human eloquence, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning. The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

So why is there no Sign of the Cross in the INC logo?  Is INC inviting the wrath of God to destroy its members starting from its temples?  Does INC wish to follow Christ but without a cross in its temples to carry?  Does INC await the coming of Christ but thinks that the Sign of the Son of Man is not the cross but a compass?  Does INC wish to proclaim the cross of Christ like St. Paul or rather the message of Felix Y.

Lucifer is he whom the Freemasons worship.  As Christ said: “And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.” (Mt 6:23)

### Iglesia Ni Cristo Lies and Deceit

Here’s the INC Monarchial Line: Felix Manalo INC Founder, a self-proclaimed ‘Last Sugo’ Erano G. Manalo, INC current Executive Minister, the 5th child of Felix Manalo and Honorata De Guzman. His name comes from what he felt was a “New Christian Era” of which the New Era University was built upon. Eduardo V. Manalo, is the current Deputy Executive Minister, a grandson of Felix Manalo and is the son of the current Executive Minister Erano G. Manalo. Christ has nothing to do with their family glorification through their family owned corporation!

# Exclusive Brethren

The Brethren movement began in Dublin in the late 1820s with a group of men (John Nelson Darby, Anthony Norris Groves, John Bellett, Edward Cronin and Francis Hutchinson) who felt that the established Church had become too involved with the secular state and abandoned many of the basic truths of Christianity. (Looks like INC followed the copybook!) The first Brethren assembly in England was established at Plymouth in 1831 which is why Brethren are often called Plymouth Brethren. Members of the Exclusive Brethren are very limited in their contact with outsiders. They must not:

• visit other churches
• join any other religious organisation
• join a professional organisation (this excludes members from professions such as medicine and pharmacy)
• join any membership that includes people outside the Exclusive Brethren
• live in the same building, including apartments and semi-detached houses, as outsiders (this means that members can’t share a house with a spouse or with children if the spouse or child has been expelled from the Exclusive Brethren)
• marry outside the Exclusive Brethren

# Judaized Christianity: Front for New World Order — Sen. McCarthy

July 18, 2012

“Your Churches Will Teach the Jew’s Religion”

Excerpt from a 1956 speech, “GEORGE WASHINGTON’S SURRENDER” by Senator Joseph McCarthy (1908-1957.)

And many of the people of the land became Jews.” Esther 9:17.

“The confession of General Cornwallis (left) to General Washington at Yorktown (Oct. 17, 1781) has been well hidden by historians. History books and text books have taught for years that when Cornwallis surrendered his army to General Washington that American independence came, and we lived happily ever after until the tribulations of the twentieth century.”

“Jonathan Williams recorded in his “LEGIONS OF SATAN,” 1781, that Cornwallis revealed to Washington that “a holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown.”

Cornwallis went on to explain what would seem a contradiction:

“Your churches will be used to teach the Jew’s religion and in less than two hundred years the whole nation will be working for divine world government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire. All religions will be permeated with Judaism without even being noticed by the masses, and they will all be under the invisible all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of Freemasonry.”

And indeed George Washington himself was a Mason, and he gave back through a false religion what he had won with his army.

“Cornwallis well knew that his military defeat was only the beginning of world catastrophe that would be universal and that unrest would continue until mind control could be accomplished through a false religion. What he predicted has come to pass. A brief sketch of American religious history and we have seen Masonry infused into every church in America with their veiled Phallic religion.

“Darby and the Plymouth Brethren brought a Jewish Christianity to America. Masons Rutherford and Russell started Jehovah Witnesses’ Judaism which is now worldwide with their message of the divine kingdom. Mason Joseph Smith started Mormon Judaism with its Jewish teaching of millennialism.

[ Millennialism is the belief that there will be a Golden Age or Paradise on Earth in which "Christ will reign" prior to the final judgment and future eternal state (the New Heavens and New Earth). In fact, this will be the rule of the Masonic Jewish (Illuminati) bankers fronted by the Luciferian Anti-Christ. ed.]

“At the turn of the twentieth century there appeared the Scofield Bible with a Jewish interpretation of the prophecies. With wide use of this “helpful” aid, all the American churches have silently become synagogues. We now have Baptist Jews, Methodist Jews, Church of God Jews, apostate Catholic Jews, and many Protestant Jews throughout America. We are aliens in our own country because of false religion. All are praying for divine deliverance into that “Divine Government” which Cornwallis knew to be the British Empire.

“A false religion has been used to deceive us into allegiance to our enemies of Yorktown and Bunker Hill. No! Not a gun has been fired but the invisible and malignant process of conquering America with the Jew’s religion has gone on unabated.

“The Union Jack has been planted in our hearts with religious deception. All has happened “legally,” “constitutionally,” “freely” and completely within our most sacred trust — our churches. Religious deception is painless inoculation against truth. It cannot be removed from the conscience with surgery, yet it is the motivator of our actions and directly controls our lives.

“Once man gives over to false religion, he is no longer rational because he originates no thought. His life is controlled by whomever controls his religion.

“The veil of false religion is the sword of Damocles and its power to control humanity defies even the imagination of tyrants who use it.”

“This is not to say that George Washington was a traitor willingly, or knowingly. He was beguiled into a Satanic religious order that insidiously controls men’s minds. So have American statesmen and military leaders down through the years given aid and allegiance to the enemies of the United States because they did not have knowledge of the invisible subterfuge that stalks this land. My eyes were opened the day my colleague from Ohio handed me Wagner’s “FREEMASONRY AN INTERPRETATION.” If every American would read it, they would no longer ask why and how it has happened.”

# Yahweh: God or Archfiend?

## The Hebrews (in Storyland) enter Egypt

##### The Egyptians have become in debt to Joseph, and he has life-and-death control over who gets the money! They give him their real assets – horses, herds of cattle, asses, in return for the money he has made! The transactions mean that they have sold all their herds of cattle to Joseph – and are still hungry!

Where will it end? This edifying tale ends with the enslavement by debt of the entire populace:

## 2.Abraham pimps out his wife

### Exodus: the Unlikely Tale

Prelude: Joseph arrives in Egypt

The Book of Genesis had told how the Pharaoh had generously welcomed Joseph and his brothers, to dwell in the land of Egypt, when they were starving:

Pharaoh said to his brothers, “What is your occupation?” And they said to Pharaoh, “Your servants are shepherds, as our fathers were.” They said to Pharaoh, “We have come to sojourn in the land; for there is no pasture for your servants’ flocks, for the famine is severe in the land of Canaan; and now, we pray you, let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen.” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Your father and your brothers have come to you. The land of Egypt is before you; settle your father and your brothers in the best of the land  (Gen 47:1-4)

Coming from famine-struck Canaan, they were hoping to settle down in Egypt. The pharaoh kindly offers them his best land to settle in – and in return only requests one cushy job, that they look after his cattle: “and if you know any able men among them, put them in charge of my cattle.”

Thus rescued from starvation by the great generosity of the Pharaoh, they settle in his best land (Gen 47:11) – the books of Genesis and Exodus thus appear as a story, the first story, of how to screw over a host-nation. God’s chosen people are rescued from starvation and offered the best land to dwell in  -in return, with bitter ingratitude, their God finally provides a hail of ghastly curses and mass-murder, to ‘despoil the Egyptians,’ as we’ll now see.

‘Ingratitude, thou marble-hearted fiend’   King Lear

The Exodus story begins with the Israelites as slaves in Egypt (which is completely absent from the very detailed historical records of Egypt[1]):

But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad. And the Egyptians were in dread of the people of Israel. So they made the people of Israel serve with rigor, and made their lives bitter with hard service, in mortar and brick, and in all kinds of work in the field;Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives … “When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him; but if it is a daughter, she shall live. (Exodus 1:12-16)

It’s not explained how they have come to be in bondage, whereas initally they were honoured guests. Hebrews in Egypt are multiplying, and Egyptians are ‘in dread’ of them. The unlikely instruction is given to ‘midwives’ by the King, to murder every male Hebrew child. The midwives’ riposte is quite a laugh:

So the king of Egypt called the midwives, and said to them, “Why have you done this, and let the male children live?” The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and are delivered before the midwife comes to them.

Sure, they just pop out quickly, before the midwives can arrive to kill them. Despite being ‘in dread’ of the Hebrews, the Pharaoh commands that  “Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile.”

### Loot thy Neighbour

Moses appears and has a dialogue with God about how to lead out his people from Egypt. The latter explains His technique of theft:

When you go, you shall not go empty, but each woman shall ask of her neighbour, and of her who sojourns in her house, jewellery of silver and of gold, and clothing, and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters; thus you shall despoil the Egyptians.

We are left wondering how the Hebrews are to ‘despoil’ the Egyptians, by relieving their neighbours of household gold and jewellery – but, all will be revealed. God explains to Moses His plan for plagues:

“When you go back to Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the miracles which I have put in your power; but I will harden his heart, so that he will not let the people go. (4:21)

The aim is not primarily to get ‘Israelites’ out of Egypt, but rather to force the Pharaoh not to agree to it. The Deity instructing Moses here claims to be ‘God Almighty’ (6:2)
The first plague begins, and all the Nile turns to blood and the fish die etc – and the magicians of Egypt claim to be able to duplicate this effect!

But the magicians of Egypt did the same by their secret arts; so Pharaoh’s heart remained hardened, and he would not listen to them; as the LORD had said.

A second plague was unleashed, of frogs everywhere, and again the magicians of Egypt claim they can duplicate this effect! (8:7)

But the magicians did the same by their secret arts, and brought frogs upon the land of Egypt.

So far, this is looking like a contest between rival groups of black magicians – but, hang on. Gnats appear everywhere as the third plague, and this time the magicians of Egypt cannot duplicate the effect:

The magicians tried by their secret arts to bring forth gnats, but they could not. So there were gnats on man and beast. And the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.”

– which apparently shows this to be ‘the finger of God.’
What god might that be, wondered Seymour Light?
The Hebrews are to be given a special plot of Egypt to live in called Goshen, so they do not experience the awful plagues. (8:22)  Either they were ‘in bondage’ to Egypt or they were not, reflected Seymour Light. If they were they could not have suddenly acquired their own patch of real estate. Whoever fabricated this low-credibility story had no inkling whatever of the glory that was Egypt, with its pyramids and grand edifices. No name of any pharaoh is mentioned, because whoever was writing long after the alleged events had no idea of these.As God keeps hardening the heart of the Pharaoh in order to prevent him from letting the Israelites go, frightful hail and rains fall, and the Pharaoh repents. But even then, God makes him un-repent – after all, one wouldn’t want to miss the  plague of locusts:

Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh; for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, that I may show these signs of mine among them, and that you may tell in the hearing of your son and of your son’s son how I have made sport of the Egyptians and what signs I have done among them; that you may know that I am the LORD.

The deity wants to ‘make sport of the Egyptians,’ that’s the motive.  As the last, cataclysmic punishment approaches, this is a good time to remind the Israelites about relieving their neighbours of family gold and silver: (11:2)

Speak now in the hearing of the people, that they ask, every man of his neighbour and every woman of her neighbour, jewellery of silver and of gold.

### Passover: the Killer-God in Action

In the first month of the year (12:2)

The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,”This month shall be for you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year for you.

each Hebrew household needs a lamb to slaughter, and on the 14th day (i.e. Full Moon) its blood has to be daubed over the house lintel – “It is the Lord’s passover”  – and the murderous low-flying God will spare their children on that Passover night. NB no detail is here given of how this homicidal God bumped off the little children in their cots, overnight.
This, Seymour Light reflected, was weirdly fulfilled much later, when the Prince of Peace was crucified on the Passover full Moon on Friday, 3rd April 33 AD, the first full Moon after the Equinox: this Exodus text defines it in this manner. (Seymour Light was puzzled that Jews today began their year on the New Moon nearest the Autumn Equinox, when this Exodus text clearly defines it as the springtime month) Dire Pauline theology passed dimly through his memory, as to how the Lamb of God had somehow atoned or rescued believers by His death, making the analogy with this ‘passover’ Full Moon when this nightmare god chose to slaughter innocent children, to ‘make sport with the Egyptians.’
.
It was such a bloody religion, Seymour Light reflected:

For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will smite all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgements: I am the LORD. The blood shall be a sign for you, upon the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall fall upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.  “This day shall be for you a memorial day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD; throughout your generations you shall observe it as an ordinance for ever.”

The bloody horror of the mass murder of innocent children had to remembered ‘forever’ –  nay, celebrated and honored.
What kind of religion was this, Seymour Light reflected? Had any other people ever even imagined a brutal killer-god like this one?
The Egyptians finally let the people of Israel take all the gold and silver and clothing they ask for (12:36) – an offer they couldn’t refuse, so to speak. Let’s recall that none of this actually happened, it’s just a story from someone’s hellish imagination – and for which God will forever after ask the Israelites to feel gratitude. ‘Thus they despoiled the Egyptians.’ (12:36) I wouldn’t invite these people to my party, reflected Seymour Light.
“…every slave that is bought for money may eat of it after you have circumcised him.” (12:43)

### The Redemption – Paid in Shekels

Once the Israelites have escaped from Egypt, the Lord instructs:

Consecrate to me all the first-born; whatever is the first to open the womb among the people of Israel, both of man and of beast, is mine… you shall set apart to the LORD all that first opens the womb. All the firstlings of your cattle that are males shall be the LORD’s. Every firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb, or if you will not redeem it you shall break its neck. Every first-born of man among your sons you shall redeem. (Exodus, 13:1,12-13)

Redemption here is a payment. A first-born ass can be ‘redeemed’ with a lamb – or if not ‘you shall break its neck’. ‘Redeem’ here means, ‘avoid the slaughter of’ or else what does it mean? Later on we will discover, that the first born sons may be ‘redeemed’ by paying a tithe to the priesthood – who are presumably writing this text in the first place – many centuries (Yes, Seymour Light nodded his head) many centuries after you have been told it was written.
Seymour Light consulted Douglas Reed’s weighty The Controversy of Zion, in order to get a right perspective here, on the chains of enslavement being forged:

The picture of blood-bespattered priests, thus given, is worth contemplation. Even at this distance of time the question prompts itself: why was this insistent emphasis laid on blood-sacrifice in the books of the Law which the Levites produced. The answer seems to lie in the sect’s uncanny genius for instilling fear by terror; for the very mention of “blood,” in such contexts, made the faithful or superstitious Judahite tremble for his own son! It is all spelt out in Exodus, this claim of the fanatical priests to the firstborn of their followers: “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.” According to the passage earlier quoted from Micah, this practice of sacrificing the human firstborn long continued, and the sight of the bloodied Levite must have had a terrible significance for the humble tribesman, for in the words attributed to God, quoted above, the firstborn “of man and of beast” are coupled. This significance remained long after the priesthood (in a most ingenious way which will later be described) contrived to discontinue human sacrifice while retaining the prerogative. Even then the blood which was sprinkled on the priest, though it was an animal’s, was to the congregation still symbolically that of their own offspring!

Again and again blood gets spattered over white-robed priests and the congregation, to make everyone feel ‘holy.’ The act of redemption is later explained as achievable by giving so many shekels to the priest. And we will address in due time, the issue of sacrificing the human firstborn – yes, alas, we will be coming to that – as might not be quite what you have heard from the pulpit.

### Selling your Daughter for Sex

Seymour Light was by no means sceptical about some degree of ET involvement in the story here, where the awesome ‘cloud by day and pillar of fire by night’ appears, to guide the Israelites on their sojourn – as a memory of 2nd millennium BC events endured, remembered as sacred by the people, in this text written down long after. Prior to the crossing of the Red sea, Yahweh once more explains his motive:

And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them and I will get glory over Pharaoh and all his host; and the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD.

He intends to ‘get glory’ by the spectacular mass murder involved. Those writing this story gave no motive for the Egyptian army to wish to chase the Hebrews – when they would have been devoutly grateful for their departure.
Three months later Moses gets to receive the Ten Commandments, when a lot of special electric-fiery effects appear in the story:

Take heed that you do not go up into the mountain or touch the border of it; whoever touches the mountain shall be put to death … no hand shall touch him … whether beast or man, he shall not live. (19:13)

This was no god of light, but rather: “And the people stood afar off, while Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was” (20:21)
On the very same page as the Ten Commandments, Yahweh explains about how to buy and sell slaves – especially one’s own daughter:

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do. If she does not please her master, who has designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed.

Selling your daughter for sex, with a refund guarantee – if satisfaction is not obtained! Yahweh also explained how you can beat up your own slave without punishment (this immediately follows the Ten Commandments):

When a man strikes his slave, male or female, with a rod and the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. But if the slave survives a day or two, he is not to be punished; for the slave is his money.

There follows the categories of people to be killed “You shall not permit a sorceress to live” – (22:18) and “Whoever sacrifices to any god, save to the LORD only, shall be utterly destroyed.” The trashing of anyone else’s religion is a recurrent theme.  But, having said that, a weird twinge of benevolence appears later in Chapter 22, as if memory of some benevolent deity were endeavouring to make itself heard.
Seymour Light pinched himself, to remind himself that he was reading ‘The Holy Bible.’ This was the anti-god from Hell, why do people want this stuff on their bookshelves?
Seeing God
Moses sloshed basins of blood around (24:6-8), yes he knew how to please God:

And Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins, and half of the blood he threw against the altar. Then he took the book of the covenant, and read it in the hearing of the people; and they said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient.” And Moses took the blood and threw it upon the people, and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant which the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words.”

The contract was struck – with loads of blood – then Moses and Aaron go up the mountain, to see God. He offers them a snack before they continued up the mountain:

Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab, and Abi’hu, and seventy of the elders of Israel went up, and they saw the God of Israel; and there was under his feet as it were a pavement of sapphire stone, like the very heaven for clearness. And he did not lay his hand on the chief men of the people of Israel; they beheld God, and ate and drank.

Rather like meeting Darth Vader, they are just relived that He didn’t try to kill them.
Here Seymour Light reflected, that the Torah stories were totally materialistic: there is no after-life, the blessings offered by Yahweh in return for obedience are all material, as are all the curses (in far longer lists than the blessings), and the point of all of the obedience, burnt offerings etc was not virtue or salvation, but that they would obtain the land – it was a material promise, a material contract. And God was constantly defining Himself in material terms, as a being who could see and taste etc*, who gave advice in battle, often thru some sort of intercom system, and at one point moans because the Hebrews want their own king, claiming, won’t he do? He is constantly demanding sacrifice offerings like evening snacks, with huge detail over their cuisine, admiring the odour of the burnt offerings and wine … Indeed Seymour Light occasionally  wondered (but could not decide) about the argument put forward in that classic work, The Genius of the Few by O’Brian, that Yahweh was some sort of large wrinkly Annunaki-type being, who flew in his ‘cloud by day, pillar of fire by night’, and came down when required into the Tent of Meeting where it was often alleged that He dwelt.
Yahweh was ‘bellicose and vindictive’ O’Brien found. (p.175), adding: “With Yahweh by your side, violence is never more than a hand’s breadth away!” (p.190)
Levites: the Killer-Priests
On coming down with the Ten Commandments written by God on both sides of the tablets, Moses finds that the people have melted down their gold to make an engraved image – contravening the Third Commandment they were about to be given! That was asking for trouble. Contravening the Seventh Commandment he was bringing down from the mountain, Moses assembled the Levite priesthood and had them slay three thousand men as punishment! This Levite priesthood here appear as the only ones who have swords, for there is no resistance:

then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, “Who is on the LORD’s side? Come to me.” And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him. And he said to them, “Thus says the LORD God of Israel, `Put every man his sword on his side, and go to and fro from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.'” And the sons of Levi did according to the word of Moses; and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men. And Moses said, “Today you have ordained yourselves for the service of the LORD, each one at the cost of his son and of his brother, that he may bestow a blessing upon you this day.

The killer-god blesses this mass-murder act – with no hint of incompatibility with the Seventh Commandment He had just written on the stone.
As that perceptive atheist Richard Dawkins wrote, one might have hoped that this killing ‘would have been enough to assuage God’s jealous sulk. But no, God wasn’t finished yet. In the last verse of this terrible chapter his parting shot was to send a plague upon what was left of the people ‘because they made a calf, which Aaron made.’’ (the God Delusion, p.277) Seymour Light admired the moral judgement of Dawkins -

God’s monumental rage whenever his chosen people flirted with a rival god resembles nothing so much as sexual jealousy of the worst kind, and again it should strike a modern moralist as far from a good role-model (Ibid, p276)

however he could not go along with the simplistic view that no such Being had ever existed. Too much horror had come from this deity, for it to be merely a figment of anyone’s imagination. Who could ever dream up so hellish a god?
Seymour Light was impressed by Aaron’s ability to construct a furnace reaching a thousand degrees centigrade in the middle of a desert, in order to melt gold (32:4) – and even more by the remarkable alchemic ability of Moses to unmake Aaron’s golden calf, dissolving it and turning it into drinkable, colloidal gold! (32:30)
The Fifth Commandment then gets revamped as a death-curse:

You shall keep the sabbath, because it is holy for you; every one who profanes it shall be put to death; whoever does any work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. (31:14)

Originally it had been a blessing – but, hey, that was on the original tablets that Moses had smashed in anger! (20:8) Seymour Light here recalled the piteous story of an old man caught gathering firewood, ignorant that it was the sabbath day – and, by the way, this is the invention of the seven-day week, this is how it began! The Hebrews ask God what to do with the old man, and God replies, stone him to death - and lo, they stoned him to death (Numbers, 15).
Again Seymour Light had to admire the moral judgement of the atheist Dawkins:

What shocks me today about such stories is not that they really happened. They probably didn’t. What makes my jaw drop is that people today should base their lives on such an appalling role model as Yahweh – and, even worse, that they should bossily try to force the same evil monster (whether fact or fiction) onto rest of us. (Ibid, p.282)

At last someone was correctly evaluating the Judaeo-Christian god Yahweh. This surely has to be a milestone in morality and a real augury of hope for Homo Sap., he felt.
It was slowly dawning upon the Hebrews that being ‘rescued’ by this Deity from Egypt may not have been such a great idea. Yahweh, whose rage resembled an ever-simmering volcano, turned out to be unappeased by the thousands he had just slaughtered, followed by a plague – and to his ‘chosen people’ vowed, of the Promised Land: ‘To your descendants I will give it’ (33:1) – the promise is broken, for which they had left Egypt! They will all have to die in the desert! Only their children get to enter this promised land, ‘flowing with milk and honey.’
Serve them right for trusting Yahweh, Seymour Light reflected.
Later on, we get detail about how to make and consecrate the Ark of the Covenant,  (29:21)

Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the ram, and you shall kill the ram, and take part of its blood and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron and upon the tips of the right ears of his sons, and upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the great toes of their right feet, and throw the rest of the blood against the altar round about. Then you shall take part of the blood that is on the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron and his garments, and upon his sons and his sons’ garments with him; and he and his garments shall be holy, and his sons and his sons’ garments with him.

The alter is splattered with blood as usual, the priests are splattered with blood – ever so holy, Seymour Light reflected. Further enigmatic comments follow about the physical or quasi-physical nature of Yahweh, maybe not the sort of thing anyone would make up. Moses asks if he may see Yahweh, and the reply is:

You cannot see my face; for man shall not see me and live.” And the LORD said, “Behold, there is a place by me where you shall stand upon the rock; and while my glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with my hand until I have passed by; then I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back; but my face shall not be seen.”

As if Yahweh would be passing by in some sort of craft somewhere up the mountain, and Moses was permitted only to see its rear.
Moses was advised of the various local tribes due to have their land stolen: “I will drive out the Canaanites, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Per’izzites, the Hivites, and the Jeb’usites,” plus destruction of their places of worship: “You shall tear down their altars, and break their pillars, and cut down their Ashe’rim” (34:13) These Middle-Eastern goddess-worshipping peoples had been living – or so Merlin Stone argued, in her The Paradise Papers, When God was a Woman, 1976 – in ecological peace and harmony. ‘For I will cast out nations before you, and enlarge your borders’ (34:24). Reflected Seymour Light, this deity behaved as if totally exempt from the Commandments just given, not to steal or kill.
This was bad news for Planet Earth, reflected Seymour Light: the Predator had arrived.* Deuteronomy 4:27: “And there you will serve gods of wood and stone, the work of men’s hands, that neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell” – rather implying that Yahweh was able to see,eat etc.

### Leviticus: child sacrifice ratified

Bloody Rites

The Book of Leviticus  opens with details of the evening snacks/burnt offerings which Yahweh required, speaking to Moses ‘from the tent of meeting’ where He seemed to reside:

Then he shall kill the bull before the LORD; and Aaron’s sons the priests shall present the blood, and throw the blood round about against the altar that is at the door of the tent of meeting. (1:5)

As usual, blood gets spattered all around, to atone for sin, “Then the anointed priest shall bring some of the blood of the bull to the tent of meeting, and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD in front of the veil.” (4:17)
Lo, the glory of the Lord appears:

And Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting; and when they came out they blessed the people, and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people. And fire came forth from before the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the fat upon the altar; and when all the people saw it, they shouted, and fell on their faces. (9:23-4)

Yahweh seemed to have special-effect, electrical-fiery abilities, able to kill a lot of people; also some skill in weather-manipulation. His power in the Tent of Meeting could short-circuit and kill people, perhaps unintentionally:

Now Nadab and Abi’hu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer, and put fire in it, and laid incense on it, and offered unholy fire before the LORD, such as he had not commanded them. And fire came forth from the presence of the LORD and devoured them, and they died before the LORD (10:1)

Aaron doesn’t get an apology, au contraire he has to make a sin-offering to be forgiven!

and the LORD said to Moses, “Tell Aaron your brother not to come at all times into the holy place within the veil, before the mercy seat which is upon the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.  (16:2)

Aaron has to make a sacrifice and sprinkle blood round the place, to atone for what has just happened…
List of Curses

In the first part of this book Yahweh appears quite benevolent, but later the terrible list of curses begin, (Ch 26) with long lists of who is to be put to death, for failure to ‘obey.’ Quoting a brief section:

And the pretences made, by those composing this ghastly text, that ‘These are the commandments which the LORD commanded Moses for the people of Israel on Mount Sinai.’ i.e an ‘oral tradition’ is averred, here written down.
The content of these books are the very opposite of morality, Seymour Light reflected to himself: it’s obedience or death, commands and vengeance. Surely no tribes had ever existed, who believed anyone had to be put to death, if they were found doing any work on the Sabbath? It was hard to believe. Who would want or choose a god like that, he wondered?
Seymour Light pondered again the wise words of Douglas Reed. There had been, he held, an earlier, benevolent God of Israel, which nation vanished around the tenth century, whose memory had been carried down in an oral tradition, before the priests wrote down their texts of entrapment – ever using the ‘The Lord spake to Moses’ ploy.

The Levites in Babylon added Exodus, Genesis, L eviticus and Numbers to Deuteronomy. Genesis and Exodus provide a version of history moulded to fit the “Law” which the Levites by then had already promulgated, in Deuteronomy… Whatever has survived of the former Israelite tradition is in Genesis and Exodus, and in the enlightened passages of the Israelite prophets. These more benevolent parts are invariably cancelled out by later, fanatical ones, which are presumably Levitical interpolations. The puzzle is to guess why the Levites allowed these glimpses of a loving God of all men to remain; as they invalidated the New Law and could have been removed. A tenable theory might be that the earlier tradition was too well known to the tribespeople to be merely expunged, so that it had to be retained and cancelled out by allegorical incident and amendment. Although Genesis and Exodus were produced after Deuteronomy the theme of fanatical tribalism is faint in them. The swell and crescendo come in Deuteronomy, Leviticus and Numbers, which bear the plain imprint of the Levite in isolated Judah and Babylon. Thus in Genesis the only fore-echo of the later sound and fury is, “And I will make of thee a great nation and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing; and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed … and the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land …”

And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father and shall be burnt with fire‘ (21:9) Commented Merlin Stone, ‘since it was the Levite priests who wrote the laws, this willingness to burn their own daughters to death perhaps most clearly reveals the intensity of the Levite attitude towards the sexual autonomy of women.’ (The Paradise Papers p.208)

For a whole chapter on the virtue of burning your own daughter alive, as an acceptable sacrifice to Moloch Yahweh, see the Book of Judges 11.

### Child Sacrifice

But no devoted thing that a man devotes to the LORD, of anything that he has, whether of man or beast, or of his inherited field, shall be sold or redeemed; every devoted thing is most holy to the LORD. No one devoted, who is to be utterly destroyed from among men, shall be ransomed; he shall be put to death. (Lev 27:28-9)
We saw how in the Book of Exodus, every firstborn child (or animal) belonged to the Lord, and that this had the implication of human sacrifice. It was a nightmare carry-over from the last of the plagues of Egypt, where the Lord ‘smote’ every firstborn child in Egypt. However, Exodus made clear that the child could be ‘redeemed’ from this thread by paying five shekels to the priest. It was thus little more than a tax-raising scheme – with nightmare undertones. Here, however, Yahweh is objecting to this remunerative scheme, saying He wants the blood! As the God from Hell He does need the prana or life-force that is released (or so occult books tell us) upon the sacrifice of a child.
We are here reminded of the Book of Proverbs – supposedly the oldest book of the Old Testament – holding forth about what the Israelites have done wrong:
They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons; they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood. (106, 36-7)
Book after book of the Old Testament comes back to this theme, of child sacrifice – which is the exact definition of black magic. We discuss it again in the Ezekiel section.

# Of all Catholic rituals, canonisation is nonsense

So former popes John XXIII and John Paul II are saints for their ‘miracles’. At such times I sympathise with intelligent Catholics

Two new saints were declared at the weekend. Amid euphoric scenes in Vatican Square, Pope Francis defied his modernisation drive by canonising two of his recent predecessors. The world’s press indulged the occasion as one of universal joy. Even if they regarded it as barking mad, they though it bad form to rain on someone else’s parade.

Of all Catholic rituals, sanctification drips with medieval nonsense. A prospective saint is nominated, investigated by a committee and, if displaying “heroic virtues”, is tested for a miracle. Since a miracle is an act of God answering a prayer, it must be medically “inexplicable”, putting some pressure on the doctors concerned. Only martyrs do not need miracles for saintliness.

This leads to beatification, followed by canonisation if a second miracle is “scientifically proven” within five years of the candidate’s death. Apparently the potency of saintly intercession wanes after a period. These rules can be waived if the candidate is a huge celebrity, likeMother Teresa. The committee was clearly keen on John XXIII and John Paul II, even if it seemed a trade union stitch-up for popes to move so briskly from office to sanctity. It is an echo of Britain’s House of Lords.

At such times I can sympathise with intelligent Catholics. Loyal to their tribe, they wrestle with virgin birth, papal infallibility, transubstantiation and much nonsense about sex. They explain away the rituals of the church as clothing God’s relationship with humans in familiar metaphors and ceremonies, some punitive, some heart-warming, like sainthood. The Congregation for the Causes of Saints should be seen as merely a Vatican X Factor.

I am less indulgent. There is a notorious potency to the narratives of religious faith, throughout history a means by which elites have ruled the lives of the gullible. At a time when more death and destruction is being perpetrated in the name of religion than for many decades past, sensible people should guard against nonsense in its name, however ostensibly harmless.

Western atheists may deride what they see as authoritarian and intolerant aspects of Islam, the Hindu worship of deities in animal form, voodoo or the zanier tenets of oriental mysticism. It sees them as holding back the march of reason and civilisation, indeed of democracy and peace. The Catholic predilection for saints is the same. Religion may be a comfort to millions, to be respected as such, but it is also a menace to millions and as such deserves no respect at all.

# Christian nursery worker claims unfair dismissal over dispute with gay colleague

Christian Legal Centre calls on David Cameron to intervene in alleged religious discrimination case

A Christian nursery nurse is claiming unfair dismissal after losing her job because she said she told a gay colleague the Bible regards the practice of homosexuality as a sin.

Sarah Mbuyi said she made the comments only after being pressed on her beliefs by a colleague who initiated the conversation at Newpark Childcare in Highbury, north London, in January.

Mbuyi is being supported in her case by the Christian Legal Centre, whose chief executive, Andrea Williams, said the government had “seriously let down” Christians and criticised David Cameron for attempting to “mould Christianity to his political agenda”.

Mbuyi, who is claiming unfair dismissal on grounds of religious discrimination, said: “When I said ‘No, God does not condone the practice of homosexuality, but does love you and says you should come to Him as you are’, [her colleague] became emotional and went off to report me to my manager.”

At an internal disciplinary hearing, she said, she was confronted with her colleague’s allegations, which included the claim that she herself had raised the issue of homosexuality on a number of occasions, which she denies. The nursery directors instantly dismissed her for gross misconduct.

“My disciplinary hearing was hopelessly one-sided because they put my accuser’s claims to me as fact, without any forewarning and so I wasn’t prepared. It seemed to me they had already made up their minds to justify sacking me, before hearing my side of the story, ” Mbuyi said.

Williams, a barrister, said if the prime minister was “serious in his support for Christianity”, he would intervene in the case.

She went on: “Sharing Biblical truths out of genuine love and concern for colleagues is being outlawed in the workplace by a dominating cultural correctness.

“There is a culture of fear which closes down freedom of speech and the manifestation of faith. This culture brands the liberating good news of the Gospel as oppressive and regressive.

“Sarah’s case demonstrates the confusion we’re experiencing in current times. David Cameron has given public recognition of the enormous positive impact that Jesus Christ has had on our nation but he wants to mould Christianity to his political agenda. History shows that Christianity is greater than any political agenda.

“David Cameron has ignored the concerns of the Christian community by driving through same-sex marriage. Any dissent in the public space, in the workplace, to the new prevailing orthodoxy means punishment as Sarah is experiencing.

“This is not a government with a track record of recognising and respecting Christian faith. It has deliberately and consistently undermined Christians and their freedom to live out their faith in the public square.”

Cameron said earlier in the week that Britain should be “more confident about our status as a Christian country” and “more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people’s lives”.

In an article for the Church Times he described himself as a “classic” member of the Church of England, “not that regular in attendance, and a bit vague on some of the more difficult parts of the faith”.

# Camels cast doubt on accuracy of Bible stories

11:09 AM Wednesday Feb 5, 2014
A camel resting in Jerusalem. Photo / Thinkstock
Camels are mentioned in Biblical stories involving Abraham, Joseph and Jacob as well as other famous characters. But archaeologists have found that the mammals were not domesticated in Israel until centuries after famous figures were said to have ridden them. They claim this shows that text in the Bible was compiled long after the events described in it and challenges the holy book as a historical document. Camels were not domesticated in Israel until centuries after the Age of the Patriarchs – when Abraham, Jacob and Issac are said to have lived – between 2,000 and 1,500 BC. Dr Erez Ben-Yosef and Dr Lidar Sapir-Hen of Tel Aviv University’s Department of Archaeology and Near Eastern Cultures used radiocarbon dating to pinpoint the moment when domesticated camels arrived in the southern Levant.

They found camels came in the 9th century BC, not the 12th as previously thought. The findings, described in the journal Tel Aviv, draw more attention to the disagreements between Biblical texts and verifiable history. “The introduction of the camel to our region was a very important economic and social development,’ Dr Ben-Yosef said. “By analysing archaeological evidence from the copper production sites of the Aravah Valley, we were able to estimate the date of this event in terms of decades rather than centuries,” he said. It is believed that camels were originally domesticated in the Arabian Peninsula for use as pack animals sometime towards the end of the second millennium BC. The oldest known domesticated camel bones were discovered in the Aravah Valley, in the southern Levant, which runs along the Israeli-Jordanian border from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea and come from a time when the valley was an ancient centre for copper production. Dr Ben-Yosef dated an Aravah Valley copper smelting camp where the domesticated camel bones were found in 2009 and discovered they dated to between the 11th and 9th century BC. He led another dig in the area in 2013 to determine exactly when domesticated camels appeared in the southern Levant. Together with Dr Sapir-Hen, he used radiocarbon dating and other techniques to analyse the findings of these digs as well as several others done in the valley. In all the digs, they found that camel bones were unearthed almost exclusively in archaeological layers dating from the last third of the 10th century BC or later – centuries after the patriarchs lived and decades after the Kingdom of David, according to the Bible. The few camel bones found in earlier archaeological layers probably belonged to wild camels, which archaeologists think were in the southern Levant from the Neolithic period or even earlier. Dr Ben-Yosef and Dr Sapir-Hen think the Aravah Valley and would have been a logical entry point for domesticated camels into the southern Levant as it bordered the Arabian Peninsula. They believe the first domesticated camels ever to leave the area may be buried in the Aravah Valley. The arrival of domesticated camels promoted trade between Israel and exotic locations that were previously unreachable. Camels can travel over much longer distances than the donkeys and mules that preceded them. By the seventh century BC, trade routes like the Incense Road stretched all the way from Africa through Israel to India. Camels opened Israel up to the world beyond the vast deserts to profoundly alter its economic and social history, the researchers said.

# Whats A Christian Zionist?

JERUSALEM (Catholic Online) – Christian Zionism is a false and extreme theological and political philosophy that is has become a corrupting influence in the politics of Israel and the United States, said a Catholic patriarch and three other religious leaders here, urging Christians churches to break their silence.

The prophet Muhammad’s mother was Aminah, who claimed to be descended from Abraham, and who was reportedly Jewish.

The original Kaaba was at some point dedicated to Hubal, a Nabatean deity, and contained 360 idols. According to Ibn Ishaq, an early biographer of Muhammad, the Ka’aba was itself previously addressed as a female deity.[18] Circumambulation was often performed naked by male pilgrims,[19] and linked to ancient fertility rites.[20]

When the prophet Muhammad was born, the people of Saudi Arabia were a mixture of Jews, Christians and idol-worshippers.
Muhammad, as a merchant, came into contact with many Jewish merchants and landowners.

Safiyah, one of Muhammad’s Jewish wives.

Two of Prophet Muhammad’s wives were Jewish.

“Islam was a radical call back to the basic values of the Torah and even talmudic stories.”

The Dome of the Rock marks the spot from which Muhammad is believed to have ascended to heaven.[92]

The Koran is based mainly on the Old Testament.

Muhammad required that his followers were kosher.

Muhammad required that his followers keep the fast of Yom Kippur.

Muhammad required that his followers be circumcised.
Muhammad required that his followers pray facing Jerusalem.
The Prophet Mohammed, a Jewish Messiah.

Muhammad only fell out with the Jews when they refused to accept him as their prophet.

Joseph Smith

Muhammad said that God had spoken to him through the angel Gabriel.

Muhammad is a bit like Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon branch of Christianity.

Joseph Smith claimed that he was spoken to by an angel who directed him to a buried book of golden plates inscribed with a Judeo-Christian history of an ancient American civilization.

# THE CULT OF CHRISTMAS….

The Christmas Tree Early Christians recruited Roman pagans by associating Christmas with the Saturnalia, which may have led to worshippers of the Asheira cult and its offshoots, being recruited by the same Church who sanctioned “Christmas Trees”. Pagans worshipped trees of the forest, or brought them into their homes and decorated them, and this observance was claimed and adopted by the Church.

A vicar has been forced to apologise after claiming at a primary school assembly that Father Christmas does not exist and recounting the gruesome story of Saint Nicholas.
Reverend Simon Tatton-Brown infuriated parents of youngsters at Charter Primary by questioning the existence of Santa.
He told children that Father Christmas was based on a grisly legend about Saint Nicholas, who bought three murdered children back to life.
The Church of England vicar described how the youngsters were killed by an evil butcher and placed in a barrel to be pickled and sold as ham.
Parents complained when their children, aged between five and 11, came home shell-shocked and the vicar of St Andrew’s Church in Chippenham, Wilts. has now apologised.

# Jesus wasn’t born in December

Friday, December 13, 2013

DECEMBER 25 is Christmas Day. It always has been, since the 4th century AD. But what doesn’t make sense is that in December, temperatures in Israel can reach as low as seven degrees Celsius, and no shepherd in his right mind would let his sheep out in cold like that. If you can imagine the nativity with a little more snow, then that’d be approximate to what Jesus’ birth in December would’ve looked like. Nobody knows exactly when Jesus was actually born – some historians say February or March, and others say he was born on the day of Yom Kippur. What’s certain though, is that Jesus was not born during the freezing Israeli winter. Even the theories surrounding the Star of Bethlehem support the idea that Jesus was not born in December. Some astronomers believe that in the year 2 BC, there was a series of conjunctions between the planets Jupiter and Venus together with a star called Regulus that formed a very bright and beautiful object in the night sky. These events happened in July, not December, so that means that the wise men were not trekking through snowfields. There is nothing to indicate that any significant astronomical events happened in December. So why do we celebrate Christmas on December 25? Well, the early Christians believed the date of Christ’s conception to be March 25, and they simply added nine months to that date to come to the conclusion that December 25 was his date of birth. However, the Eastern Christians chose to believe that Christ’s birthday was on January 6, and some churches still maintain that belief to this day. Another theory states that December 25 was chosen because it corresponded to the Roman festival of Sol Invictus, and that doing so would ease pagan Romans into Christian conversion. Well, it’s too late to change anything about it now. We’ve been celebrating December 25 as the date of Christ’s birth for hundreds of years now, and it wouldn’t feel right if we just changed the date on the calendar for the sake of “historical accuracy.”

# Spanish Catholics angered by ‘defecating’ Virgin figurines

November 30th, 2013
BARCELONA—Spanish Roman Catholics have condemned as “grotesque” figurines of a revered Virgin Mary depicted in the act of defecating. The northeastern region of Catalonia has a tradition of producing “caganer” statuettes, which depict bare-bottomed celebrities defecating. The ceramic figurines have been sold in Catalonia since the 18th century to be placed in Christmas nativity scenes for good luck. But some Roman Catholics were outraged by one of this year’s subjects: the Virgin of Montserrat, a black statue of the Virgin Mary and infant Christ. Believed to date back at least to the Middle Ages, the Madonna stands in the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey, near Barcelona. It is one of Catalonia’s emblematic religious icons, popularly known as “La Morenita” (The Little Dark One) because of its color. “Using the image of the Virgin of Montserrat for this grotesque figurine seems to us a sign of insensitivity and lack of respect to many people who could feel their beliefs are hurt,” the abbey’s prior, Ignassi Fossas, wrote in a letter. A Roman Catholic association, “e-Cristianos,” told AFP it planned to sue the manufacturer for “attacking the respect and dignity of religious symbols.” Leading “caganer” maker Alos y Pla, which made the figurine, said it did not intend to offend anyone. “We did it with good intentions and affection for this figurine, which is so Catalan,” said one of the family firm’s members, Marc Alos. “We are a family firm of three people. A legal suit is too much for us,” he said, adding that the situation was unprecedented for the company. The firm, which in previous years has depicted US President Barack Obama, Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi and the Rolling Stones’ singer Mick Jagger, added new characters to the line-up this year, including the Virgin of Montserrat, and Pope Francis.

# Pope Francis to ‘rip up and rewrite’ Vatican constitution

## As a group of eight Catholic cardinals handpicked by the Pope to shake up the Vatican’s murky and autocratic bureaucracy prepares to meet, the group’s leader has said they plan to rip up and rewrite the apostolic constitution which apportions power at the Holy See.

The cardinals, who were appointed in April by Pope Francis and will confer with him for the first time at the Vatican on Oct. 1-3, were briefed to revise the constitution, known as Pastor Bonus, drawn up in 1988 by Pope John Paul, in a bid to give a great voice to bishops around the world.
But Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, the group’s leader, said as the meeting loomed they were planning to go much further that just changing “this and that.”

“No, that constitution is over,” he said in a TV interview. “Now it is something different. We need to write something different,” he added.

“In the past the Vatican has just revised existing rules so this is a rupture after a century of increasing centralisation,” said Gerard O’Connell, a Vatican analyst at the Vatican Insider.

# Churches adopt new Ten Commandments

## Hundreds of churches across the country are now preaching an updated version of the Ten Commandments, rewritten to reflect modern values.

The new DVD called “just10 for churches”
The religious rules, which Christians believe were etched onto tablets by God and given to Moses, have been modified to use up-to-date language and principles.
Inspired by last year’s riots, the new vows include “manage your anger”, “know God” and “catch your breath” and are understood to be used in more than 600 churches in Britain.
The original “thou shalt not steal” has become “prosper with a clear conscience”, and the lengthy “thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain” becomes “take God seriously”.
The commandments, designed by popular evangelical preacher J John, have been praised by religious leaders for bringing practical advice to modern congregations.
Using short, simple language interspersed with slang, the new rules have now been released on a DVD called “just10 for churches”, aimed at providing guidance.

# Alain de Botton’s 10 Commandments – for Atheists

## Nobody should be above the notion of investigating and promoting goodness. Alain de Botton shares ten virtues we should all aspire to.

The writer and philosopher Alain de Botton
Once we’re over about 12 years old, we’re seldom encouraged to be nice. We’re expected to make efforts in all kinds of areas, but the idea of expending energy thinking about, and then practising the art of, kindness sounds bizarre, even eerie. The notion of trying to be a “good person” conjures up all sorts of negative associations: of piety, solemnity, bloodlessness and sexual renunciation. Announce that you are working on your body, and you will attract envy and respect. Declare that you are working on your character, and you will be thought insane. It’s an indication of just how far out of favour the project of being good has fallen that “wicked” has morphed into a term of praise.
The main exception to this lack of interest in applied ethics comes in religion. Whatever disagreements one might have with their definitions of goodness or the practical implementations of their creeds, religions do not stop trying to encourage their followers to be good. They give them commandments and rituals, they deliver them sermons and ask them to rehearse lessons in prayers and in songs.
Even for a lifelong atheist, there is something interesting about these efforts. What might we learn from them? The standard answer is that we can’t learn anything, because religious morality comes from God, which by definition atheists have no time for. Yet the origins of religious ethics couldn’t, of course (as far as an atheist is concerned), have come from God, they lay in the pragmatic need of our earliest communities to control their members’ tendencies towards violence, and to foster in them contrary habits of harmony and forgiveness.
Religious codes began as cautionary precepts, which were projected into the sky and reflected back to earth in disembodied and majestic forms. Injunctions to be sympathetic or patient stemmed from an awareness that these were the qualities that could draw societies back from fragmentation and self-destruction. So vital were these rules to our survival that for thousands of years we did not dare to admit that we had formulated them, lest this expose them to critical scrutiny and irreverent handling. We had to pretend that morality came from the heavens in order to insulate it from our own laziness and disregard.
Even if we now realise that we made up our own moral exhortations, we have no cause to do away with them all. We continue to need reminders to be sympathetic and just, even if we do not believe that there is a God who has a hand in wishing to make us so. We no longer have to be brought into line by the threat of Hell or the promise of Paradise; we merely have to be reminded that it is we ourselves – that is, the most mature and reasonable parts of us (seldom present in the midst of our crises and obsessions) – who want to lead the sort of lives that we once imagined supernatural beings demanded of us.

British Israel: The Hidden Hand Behind the ‘The Kingdom of God on Earth’ Deception (July 10, 2005)

British Israel Uses Christian Fundamentalist Evangelicals to Promote the “Kingdom of God on Earth’ Scheme to Deliver Up A One World Society-Both Feudal and Fascist

“British Israel” is a term used by the anonymous author of a brilliantly written 1970 book titled The Union Jack, to describe the manipulative efforts of elite British oligarchs (on behalf of the Rothchilds) to create a one world feudal society-controlled by British oligarchs of course-by first creating the state of Israel (via the British inspired 1917 Balfour Declaration), and then using Christian fundamentalist propagandists to promote the idea that Christ will physically return to Earth and will rule a “Kingdom of God on Earth’ for a thousand years (the ‘Millennium’) from His earthly throne in….you guessed it…Jerusalem!

The only problem is, that after million upon millions of deceived Christian fundamentalists passively give up their constitutional liberties, their country’s sovereignty, and their freedom in the mistaken belief that the Apocalypse, Armageddon and End Times scenario is an inevitable ’prophecy’ from God that must take place before we can be delivered into the Happy world of the New Millennium, they will finally discover that they’ve been delivered into a satanic, feudal slave society that will no longer tolerate any talk of Christ or Christianity- assuming they are still alive to enjoy the ‘Kingdom of God on Earth’.

The frontline promoters and propagandists of the ‘Kingdom of God on Earth’ scenario include all the well known TV evangelical personalities like British Israel promoter John Hagee, Benny Hinn, Jack Van Impe, Paul & Jan Crouch of Trinity Broadcasting Jesse DuplantisKenneth Copeland, Pat Robertson, Billy GrahamRobert Shuller, Jerry Falwell,, Rod Parsley, Fred Price, Kim Clement,and Kenneth Hagin among others, but their ranks are also swollen with lesser known evangelical, pro-Israel promoters who show up on UHF, cable TV, and radio stations every Sunday morning to pitch the soon-to-be-realized Great Tribulation and End Times “prophecies”. A large percentage of these televangelist employ shouting, flamboyant movements, repeated phrases, and various histrionics to pump up the emotions of the audience in order to achieve a very specific technique of brainwashing called ‘conversion‘.

The Illuminated Ones play both sides of the Christianity card to manipulate the gullible into delusion. They either utilize pseudo-historians like Acharya S (The Christ Conspiracy, The Greatest Story Ever Sold) to sell the idea that Christ never even existed, or they use their opposite, the fundamentalist ‘Kingdom of God on Earth’ promoters, to sell the Apocalypse/Armageddon/End Times package. Either way, the naive and gullible lose. They either lose their spiritual foundation altogether and acquiesce to the humanistic or Masonic Gnosticism ploys, or they go whole hog into cheering for Armageddon and the End Times scenario to unfold so they can “get it over with” and race into the arms of ‘Jesus’ who will greet them from His golden throne in the newly rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem. These End Time ‘prophecies’ have no relationship whatsoever to the words or earthly mission of Jesus Christ. .

Sincere Christians need to recall an important statement that Christ made while on Earth. Christ said that “ My Father’s Kingdom is not of this world“. Christ was specifically rejecting the “prophecies” being promoted by a dominant Jewish sect of the day known as Pharisees. The Pharisee priests had been predicting that a Messiah would come to earth and establish a “Kingdom of God’ and rule from his throne in Jerusalem, after overthrowing the Roman oppressors who ruled Judea at the time. This is EXACTLY the same tale that the above named ‘Christian’ fundamentalist preachers are selling to multitudes of deceived people around the world. It’s Pharisee-ism plain and simple! Once this realization sinks in-and you need to remember that it was the Pharisee priests who got Pontius Pilate to condemn Christ to death- you can then begin to remove the mist from your eyes and recognize these fundamentalist ‘Christian’ propagandists for what they are– agents of the satanic British oligarchy.

Christ came to Earth to remind humanity that man is more than flesh; that man is spirit clothed within an outer vestment of flesh. Christ wanted to remind mankind that the virtues of love, honor, and forgiveness were the most important attributes to guide your daily life. Christ’s example thoroughly rejected the materialism, corruption, and deception so plainly witnessed in the lives of the above named End Times propagandists. Honest Christians need to awaken and throw out the satanic infiltrators within their midst (and in their pulpits) and return to embracing the true message of Jesus Christ. This deception is nothing short of diabolical in the extreme. Here we have Masonic con artists posing as fundamentalists evangelical ‘Christian pastors’ who are duping naive and gullible people into swallowing  the British Israel End Times scheme hook, line, and sinker. As subtitled in one of the chapters from The Union Jack below states– they are “using Christians to destroy Christianity”. Truer words were never spoken.

The Union Jack, is posted below in its entirety thanks to the assistance of a thoughtful reader who supplied the previously missing chapter and addendum notes. The Union Jack was initially published somewhere around 1970 and later updated by the anonymous author in 1985 and again in 1988. The additional articles posted below will also further illustrate the deception (and the promoters) of the End Times hoax described here.

If you are a sincere and honest Christian, especially if you are a fundamentalist, then you need to read every chapter of this book and wake up to the deception being perpetrated upon you from within.

Read The Gods of Eden by William Bramley if you want to understand more about the “End Times” ploy and how it has been used REPEATEDLY throughout recorded history to scare people into thinking there was going to be a thousand year period of bliss following the “End Times” tumult.

The Union Jack by Anonymous (authorship mistakenly attributed to Helen Peters)

Conspiracy is invisible otherwise there would be no need for this book. In fact, if conspiracy WERE visible, there would BE no conspiracy.” Anonymous author of The Union Jack, 1988 Printing

[Update November 1, 2005: I've been contacted by a man named Dave Wilbur who has greater knowledge of the background and history of Helen Peters than I. He told me that Helen Peters was not the author of The Union Jack, but rather that she promoted the book through her newsletter, 'Defenders of the Republic'. The Union Jack was published, he said, without identifying the author. Dave told me that Helen Peters died in 1971 and that her newsletters were compiled and published into a book of the same title following her death. I'll post more info about Helen Peters as I acquire it. ...Ken]

“This Book Proposes to Awaken the Honest Seekers to the Truth that:

1. Conspiracy accomplishes most of its purpose under a “Christian cloak”. 2. Conspiracy enlists the “patriots” to promote the conspiracy without their knowing it. 3. World Government is already a fact and all nations have bowed their knee to Baal. 4. Baal has a universal religion to deceive the world — the Kingdom [of God on Earth] Message. 5. Baal has a world “money” system and it is called monetized debt. 6. The thought police in America have changed our language to deceive us in our own thoughts. 7. The Constitution of the United States of America is an imaginary relic that still deceives the people into believing that they have freedom. The belief that it is still there when it is in fact not there promotes the illusion of freedom. 8. Government is organized crime and continues in power because it has the support of the people. It has the support of the people because they have been humanized through the influence of the Masonic Lodges and the “Church of their choice.” 9. The Anglo-American Government has stolen the wealth of the world with their paper “money.” 10. The Government owes nothing and pays nothing. It simply issues monetized debt (paper “money”) for all goods and services that it wants and continues to roll over and expand debt. Government debt is a polite term for theft. 11. The United States Government does not need to collect taxes from its citizens because the citizens cannot pay taxes with monetized debt, called dollars. 12. The work of the Internal Revenue Service is to regulate and control consumption and to gather information for Big Brother. 13. To keep a nation of willing slaves the Government must control religion, education, and regulate consumption. 14. Governments cannot control and deceive Christians. 15. Governments cannot control people who barter and do not use the paper money debt system. “

## The Society of Jesus, or the Jesuits

John Carroll was an intimate of Washington. (Jesuit John Carroll founded Georgetown University in 1789)  He wrote a prayer at the time of Washington’s inauguration asking God’s blessing on the president, Congress, and government of the United States — a prayer still very much in use today. Out of gratitude for John Carroll’s support during the war, Washington gave a modified version of the seal of the United States to the institution that is now Georgetown University, and that seal is still in use. Catholic Founding Fathers click here

 The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation.  None is fitter than the three lower degrees of Freemasonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it.

In the Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction, or Blood Oath ceremony, recorded in the Journals of the 62nd Congress, 3rd Session of the USA, the real aims of the Society of Jesus are made crystal clear.  Former Jesuit priests, in including the late Father Alberto Rivera, have confirmed the Blood Oath’s existence.  Malachi Martin, another former Jesuit priest, worked in the inner circles of the Vatican for more than twenty years and spoke seventeen languages.  In his final book before he died in 1999, he said there was an ‘occult conspiracy’ in the Vatican and that satanic rituals were conducted within a Secret Church dedicated to ‘Lucifer’. (Lucifer Sun Worship) This is the true agenda  behind the Jesuit operation which controls the Vatican and the Pope, and we know from unwilling participates that exactly the same happens within the secret levels  of the Mormon Church.  The Blood Oath ceremony is conducted alongside an altar as the initiate, or postulant,(päs-chə-lənt) stands between two monks.  One is holding a banner with the papal colors of yellow and white, and the other holds a black banner bearing a knife with the cross above the skull and crossbones.  It also includes the letters INRI, which is said to mean IUSTUM NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS–’It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers’.  The initiate kneels and the Superior gives him a black crucifix to hold against his heart and a dagger which he holds pointing to his heart.  The Superior confirms during the ceremony that the initiate has been taught to infiltrate and spy on behalf of the Order:

 My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a Roman Catholic, an to be a spy even among you own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man…and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits and to denounce with all vehemence(vē-ə-mən(t)s) in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order. You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous.. …to take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side.  You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to integrate(in-tə-ˌgrāt) yourself into the confidence of the family circle of protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, amount the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men.

The initiate then pledges to wage war against the ‘enemies’ of both the Order and the Pope:

 I further more promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants heads against the walls in order to annihilate forever their execrable(ek-si-krə-bəl) race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard(pän-yərd) or the leaden bullet,(JFK, Lincoln) regardless of the honour, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.
The Order’s  current head, or Superior General, is a Spanish priest of the Roman Catholic Church Adolfo Nicolás, also known by Jesuit-watchers as the ‘Black Pope’.  He is far more powerful then the white Pope and works closely in America with former New York Archbishop Edward Cardinal Egan and his replacement Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan.  The Fundamental involvement of the Jesuit Order in world-changing events like the the two global wars have rarely been told.  Often blame is handed only to a ‘Jewish’ cabal,(using the Jews as Scapegoats) which certainly does exist as a Sumerian(soo-meer-ee-uhn) cabal in nexus(nek-suhs) around the Rothchilds, and goes under the name of Zionism, Neoconservatism and other labels.  This is an important tool of the Illuminati, but it is only part of the web and we should not let it hide the fundamental involvement of the Jesuit hierarchy and the Church of Babylon,(Mystery Babylon, Lucifer Sun Worship) now known as the Roman Catholic Church.  In truth, they are all different faces of the same organization.Jesuits work in many roles in parish and retreat ministry, in high schools and colleges, as lawyers, doctors, psychologists and counselors, writers and journalists, theologians and philosophers, researchers and scientists and in many places and with many different peoples in cities, rural areas, in the missions of South America, Africa, and elsewhere. The Jesuits are renowned the world over for excellence in education. Almost from the beginning, Jesuits were teaching at various universities in Europe. Currently the Jesuits maintain, 70 secondary and primary schools, 50 Jesuit High Schools and 28 universities in the United States.  You could call them the Social engineers for the New World Order.  If you are going to control public opinion you have to control education.  Universities are a filtering device to hand pick their candidates for key positions.  Universities are teaching more then just a education, it is a indoctrination which comes with a diploma.

 Conclusion and summary This article is just a  introduction to the founding and history of the Jesuits.   More information is readily found in books and on the Internet.   But what is usually left out is why the Jesuits were formed and founded? The Counter-Reformation was the period of beginning with the Council of Trent (1545–1563) and ending at the close of the Thirty Years’ War, 1648 as a response to the Protestant Reformation. The Jesuits are the militia and foot soldiers for Rome.  The Counter-Reformation was a comprehensive effort to overcome Protestantism, Using four major elements: Ecclesiastical or structural reconfiguration (to infiltrate Protestantism) Religious orders    (Knights of Columbus, Opus Dei, Knights of Malta) Spiritual movements  (to bring in psychology to replace Spiritually) Political dimensions  (The founding of America and 28 Jesuit University’s and to infiltrate Freemasonry, start American revolution, French revolution)

### Amina Sboui Quits Femen Over ‘Islamophobia’ and Asks about Israeli’ Funding.

Amina: Worried About ‘Israeli’ Finance for Femen.This morning on France-Inter the Tunisian Femen activist (imprisoned and still charged with outrage of public decency) explained why she had left the feminist group.She highlighted her concerns about Femen’s ‘Islamophobia’.Amina then stated that she was worried about the finances of the organisation. She expressed the view that she would not accept money from “America or Israel”.Huffington Post.

Why did you decide to quit the Femen group?

I don’t know how the movement is financed. I asked Inna several times, but I didn’t get a clear answer. I don’t want to be in a movement supported by dubious money. What if it is financed by Israel? I want to know.
And then, I don’t want my name to be associated with an Islamophobic organization. I did not appreciate the action taken by the girls shouting “Amina Akbar, Femen Akbar” in front of the Tunisian embassy in France, or when they burned the black Tawhid flag in front of a mosque in Paris. These actions offended many Muslims and many of my friends. We must respect everyone’s religion.
But these actions were taken to support you while you were in prison. Why didn’t you consider them as such? I thank them all for their support. Especially Joséphine, Marguerite and Pauline, who were also imprisoned. They took some good actions, but it wasn’t the case for all of them. They should have asked for my lawyer’s advice before taking some of these actions. This made my case even more difficult. Because of the protests I was charged with a new crime, “criminal conspiracy,” when I was in prison.
Have you informed the Femen group about you quitting the organization? No. They are not going to like it, but that’s the way it is.
So, you decided to quit the organization, but you posted another topless photo just four days ago… Yes, a topless photo of myself bearing a painted circled A, the anarchist symbol. It’s different.

Amina then announced her possible support for an Anarchist group Feminism Attack. She declared that the “problème c’est tout le système” , the problem is the whole system (original – bizarrely translated in the English language Huffington Post as “I don’t like the system altogether”). We strongly suspect this is the source of Amina’s ‘concern’ about the money behind Femen.

From what is known about their funding: the key player appears to be an individual named Jed Sunden. (6) Sunden is a Brooklyn-born American Jew who founded a major Ukrainian newspaper/media company; KP Media (which owned the Kyiv Post till 2008/2009 for example) , (7) and also is an active part of the Ukrainian jewish community. (8) Sunden was the man who‘discovered’ Femen and it was he who began to give them the oxygen of publicity (and notoriety) for their topless protesting in the Kyiv Post.

The anti-Semitic site (Semitic Controversies), continues,

This Jewish money and influence behind Femen seems to also be reflected in the organization’s public activities in so far as it protest against a vast number of things in different countries, including outraging Islamic opinion by performing topless stunts in North Africa and outside mosques in Europe. (13) This is in addition to Femen’s attacks on anything even remotely conservative as being‘patriarchal’ as well as their fairly crude hatred of religion writ large (and without qualification), but primarily of Christianity and Islam which they consider (as good third wave feminists) to be ‘evil patriarchal religions’ responsible for ‘innumerable atrocities against women’ as being intrinsically deeply oppressive towards the fairer sex.

There is plenty in the same vein from Russian racist sites, and the British ‘Stormfront‘. This is a great shame. Amina showed great bravery in protesting at sexism in Tunisia. She still risks two years in Prison. A feminist response, inna shevchenko @femeninna

Amina betrayed not FEMEN but thousands of women who acted for her freedom during “Free Amina campaign” and because of who she is free now

# Talmud & Shariah Law Compared

June 27, 2013 Sharia is the moral code and religious law of Islam. The Talmud plays the same role in Judaism. Based on a study of Sharia Law and Talmud, John Kunkle concludes “Islam and Judaism are not religions, but political movements dressed up as religions.” (Editor’s Note: This provocative article reflects the conclusions of a study too long to post here. I have no knowledge of Sharia and present this as an invitation for discussion. In my view, the Illuminati agenda is to pit Christians against Muslims in order to consolidate Jewish power. ) by John Kunkle (henrymakow.com) The Arabic word Taqiyya means “deceit” or “dissimulation.” Muslims are not supposed to lie to one another, but there are times when this is acceptable: According to Bukhari (vol. 3:857 page 533) “He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar.” This also includes lying to your wife and lying in warfare. The Prophet himself said, ‘War is deceit,” Bukhari vol. 4:267 and 269.) Lying to non-Muslims is another matter. In fact, Islam permits Muslims to lie anytime they perceive that their own well-being, or that of Islam, is threatened. Especially if there is an objective to be achieved that is desirable for Islam, then it is permissible for Muslims to lie in order to achieve that objective. The book of Islamic law, Reliance of the Traveler (or the ‘Umdat al-Salik), states on pg. 746: “Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it.  When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible…” The Talmud declares that goyem (non-Jews) are animals. Therefore, it is not possible to lie to them or break a contract or steal their property because they are just animals and have no rights as a human being. While the Shariah does not consider non Muslims to be animals, they do consider them second class citizens with lesser rights than non Muslims. The earlier portions of the Koran, when the Prophet lived in Mecca and his group was a minority, are moderate, peaceful and tolerant. These earlier verses were cancelled when the Prophet completed the pilgrimage to Medina. When Muslims grew powerful, the replacement verses added later reflect harsh intolerance for non Muslims and advocate the use of violence to subjugate infidels and convert them to Islam. Muslims will cite these earlier verses to non Muslims, and will ignore the more violent and rigorous verses. Muslims will not express their hostility to unbelievers openly. This is another form of Taqiyya. Here is a quotation from the Koran: “Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution (prevention), that ye may Guard yourselves from them (prevent them from harming you.) But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.” (Q 3:28) Ibn Kathir was an Islamic scholar who wrote one of the most authoritative commentaries on the Koran. This is what he said about Muslims pretending to befriend infidels: “Unless you indeed fear a danger from them’ meaning, except those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly….’We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.” (Tafsir Ibn Kathir, vol. 2, 141) Not only may Muslims deceive non-believers, it is even legitimate for Muslims to behave in ways normally completely contrary to their faith. For instance, given such circumstances, a Muslim may drink alcohol, skip prayers and fasting during Ramadan, renounce belief in Allah and even pretend homage to a deity other than Allah, and utter insincere oaths. It is important to understand the concept of taqiyya so as not to be taken in by such tactics. (Source: Clare M. Lopez, a senior fellow at the Clarion Fund, is a strategic policy and intelligence expert with a focus on Middle East, national defense, and counter terrorism issues.) The Talmud has very similar provisions with regard to how Jews may act around goyem. They may befriend them. They may lie and deceive them. They have no obligations to them, including saving their lives if they can. The one difference between the laws of the Talmud and the laws of Shariah is that Shariah distinguishes between Muslims and non Muslims. It is a religious distinction, not a racial distinction. The Talmud distinguishes between Jews and non-Jews (goyem). A Jew is someone who has a Jewish mother. The person is considered Jewish by race, even if he or she is not a practicing Jew. There are people who convert to Judaism. They are Jews by religion not race. THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS  The common denominator of the Talmud and Shariah is that the end justifies the means. Fascism and Communism — really any totalitarian regime — believes the same thing. In my view, these are not religions, but political movements dressed up as religions. The actions that these “holy books” advocate violate most moral or ethical codes, even those of the holy books that they are supposedly interpreting. In many cases, they are complete negations of the words and intent of their holy books. To me, this is evidence of Satan’s influence in the “interpretations.” The answer of course is to go back to the original source — the holy books themselves. But then that would not provide justification for those who wish to pursue temporal power as well as spiritual power, would it? Because of the influence of the Illuminati, Western Society is in steep decline in terms of intellectual and moral development. It is not a coincidence that our economic decline has followed our moral decline, much akin to the decline of all great empires including the Roman empire. America in particular and Western civilization in general advanced dramatically with the advent of the printing press and public education. It inspired the whole industrial revolution. If it were up to those who follow “the ends justifies the means,” we would still be uneducated serfs tilling the land of our feudal lords and living like they did in the Middle Ages, much as many Muslim nations do today. If we don’t halt this moral decline, we could find ourselves in the “Midnight of the Dark Ages” — similar to the tenth century again.

# 5 ways fundamentalists misinterpret the Bible

## Christian extremists choose to read the good book literally — unless it supports crazy ideas like environmentalism

(Credit: Mark Yarchoan via Shutterstock)
Right-wing Evangelical Fundamentalism claims to “go back to roots of Christianity.” In fact, the “literal” (i.e. the earth was created in seven literal days) reading of the Bible was invented in the 19th century. Few fundamentalists care about the early church, the Gospels, the Catholic traditions, Augustine, Arian heresies, encyclicals and councils. Rather, they blend Southern Conservatism, bastardized Protestantism, some Pauline doctrine, gross nationalism and a heavy dose of naive anti-intellectualism for a peculiar American strain of bullshit. As Reverend Cornel West has noted, “the fundamentalist Christians want to be fundamental about everything, except ‘love thy neighbor.’” Here are some verses we liberal Christians wish they would get “fundamentalist” about: 1. Immigration: The verse: When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. – Leviticus 19:33-34. Why Fundamentalists Hate This Verse: Because fundamentalists are xenophobic: religious fundamentalism is a reaction to the multiculturalism of liberal democracy. Rather than seek a “brotherhood of man,” religious fundamentalism longs for a tribal community, without the necessary friction from those with foreign beliefs, cultures and customs. Here’s an open letter from the President of an organization called Christians for A Sustainable Economy (Or as I call it: Christians for an unsustainableenvironment): We are called to discern among, “sojourners” (like Ruth and Rahab who intend to assimilate and bless) and “foreigners” (who do not intend to assimilate and bless) and to welcome the former with hospitality.

# Fox News Anchor Dumbfounded That A Scholar, Who Is Muslim, Had The Audacity To Write A Book About Jesus

BY ADAM PECK ON JULY 27, 2013 AT 9:48 PM

On Friday, Fox News invited renowned religious scholar and prolific author Reza Aslan onto the air, ostensibly to discuss his latest book on Christianity, ‘Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.’ But instead, host Lauren Green launched into an Islamophobic attack on Aslan’s credentials and expressed incredulity that he, a self-professed Muslim, would be able to write about Christianity in a fair and honest way. Throughout the nearly 10 minute interview, Green inaccurately sought to portray Aslan as a religiously-motivated agitator with a hidden agenda out to discredit the very religion that he himself once practiced:

GREEN: This is an interesting book. Now I want to clarify,you’re a Muslim, so why did you write a book about the founder of Christianity? ASLAN: Well to be clear, I am a scholar of religions with four degrees — including one in the New Testament, and fluency in biblical Greek, who has been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades — who also just happens to be a Muslim. So it’s not that I’m just some Muslim writing about Jesus, I am an expert with a Ph.D in the history of religions… GREEN: But it still begs the question why would you be interested in the founder of Christianity? ASLAN: Because it’s my job as an academic. I am a professor of religion, including the New Testament. That’s what I do for a living, actually.

Undeterred, Green continued by reading aloud from an equally Islamophobic FoxNews.com column by John Dickerson in which he dismissed Aslan’s academic pedigree, referring to him simply as “an educated Muslim” with an “opinion” about Jesus. Green would pivot back to Aslan’s religion at least seven more times during the interview, simply refusing to accept that a Muslim could also be an impartial scholar of Western religion. As Aslan pointed out towards the end of his interview, many scholarly works have been written about Islam by Christian academics. Those authors, he noted, are rarely if ever asked to defend their credentials or explain why they chose to cover a religion apart from their own, certainly not on Fox News, which regularly provides a platform to hate-mongers like Pamela Geller andFrank Gaffney and passes them off as experts on Islam.

# Split at top of Destiny Church

Exclusive: Exit of right-hand man to become a pastor nearby is seen as a significant blow for Brian Tamaki.

Bishop Brian Tamaki’s right-hand man has turned his back on Destiny Church to become a pastor – the latest of several high-profile departures. Richard Lewis, a former police detective and political candidate, is believed to be starting his own church and will this Sunday start preaching at the Dream Centre, a community facility in Manukau City from which seven other churches operate. His exit from Destiny’s senior ranks is seen by those with knowledge of the church as a significant blow after its long-serving media spokeswoman Janine Cardno left last year. Paul and Michelle Hubble, who had been with Bishop Tamaki since 1990, also left the church last year. Mr Lewis said on his website: “It is a response to a heartfelt call and burden, very recently revealed, yet clearly fashioned through time and seasons towards this juncture. The opportunity to be counted amongst the churches of our nation … is a massive privilege, and one I approach with sincerity and humility.”

Mr Lewis did not return Herald requests for comment. Destiny said in a text message: “Richard Lewis has moved on from our employ. For any other comment you will need to contact Richard.” Associate Professor Peter Lineham of Massey University, who was granted access to the inner workings of the church when he wrote the book Destiny: The Life and Times of a Self-Made Apostle, said it appeared Mr Lewis had not worked for Destiny for about three months but the reasons for his departure remain unclear. Dr Lineham, who specialises in religious history, said Mr Lewis was an “absolutely loyal” servant to the church and Bishop Tamaki, and his departure was “very significant” – the first major Maori defection in Destiny Church’s higher echelons. “I think very few of the church’s achievements would have been possible without the firm hand of Richie Lewis behind because Brian [Tamaki] is a dreamer, an inspirational type of person.” Mr Lewis’ new church was now going head to head with Destiny. He would likely pick up defectors and people from within the pentecostal church movement but Bishop Tamaki had formidable charisma. Dr Lineham said Mr Lewis “has solid organising skills and has quite an effective and shrewd appraisal of people but that’s an unusual set of skills to build a church with”. Dr Lineham said the development of the Tamakis’ City of God at Druces Rd, Wiri, had “clearly been financially constrained” and “the speed of finishing has been exceptionally slow”. The site includes a two-ring boxing gym, a 1600-seat auditorium, a chapel for weddings and funerals, an early childhood centre and a full school offering Cambridge exams. “There has been heavy pressure put on people from other churches to give their time free of charge.”

# Central African Republic: Photos show new level of christian violence

Updated9:30 AM Thursday Feb 6, 2014

Please note: The New Zealand Herald has chosen not to include any extra photos of the attack as they are too graphic. The interim president of Central African Republic told the hundreds of soldiers standing in formation that she was proud of them and called on their support to bring order to their anarchic country. Then she left, and the soldiers broke ranks to stab and stomp a man in their midst to death. They dragged his corpse through the streets. The horrific attack, witnessed by Associated Press journalists, shows the degree of hatred and savagery to which this impoverished country has fallen and the difficulty faced by the international community, which has already deployed thousands of peacekeepers, to try to stabilize it. The gathering was intended to highlight the rebuilding of the national army, left in tatters when President Francois Bozize was ousted from power in a March 2013 coup.

The general in charge of the French military mission in Central African Republic highlighted how the national soldiers “have above all a detailed knowledge of the terrain which will allow us to have them take over the action.”

Interim President Catherine Samba-Panza, who took over last month after the rebel leader who seized power stepped aside amid mounting international pressure, announced that the government soldiers would soon be paid after five months without wages. And she emphasized that the international community would help rearm them. “I would like to renew my pride in those elements of FACA (Armed Forces of Central African Republic) who are here and to ask them to support my actions wherever they are,” she said. The uniformed soldiers stood at attention in orderly fashion for the speech, some sporting smiles.

But after she left, the soldiers spotted a suspected former member of the Seleka rebellion that had overthrown the government. His name was Idriss, and he was standing among them. They accused him of being an infiltrator, there to spy for Seleka. Out came the first knife. “I will kill him with my own hands,” shouted one man who had come to enlist in the national army. The very men expected to protect civilians used knives, bricks and their own feet to attack the man. Troops from the tiny African nation of Burundi surrounded the wounded man to protect him from the growing crowd. He lay wounded on his back and still alive for about five minutes. But as the crowd moved closer, the peacekeepers withdrew, not even firing warning shots. The attack resumed. Some stabbed him while others kicked him in the face. Still others pelted him with concrete blocks as a crowd cheered. A police officer jumped out of his truck to try to halt the gruesome attack and was accosted by the crowd and accused of being a traitor. Senior officers managed to extract him from the mob and sped away with him in their pickup. The crowd dragged Idriss’ corpse through the street, dismembered it and set it ablaze. Even for a city that sees civilians killed by mobs almost daily, it was a shocking display of violence, underscoring the depth of chaos now gripping Central African Republic. The 2013 coup ushered in months of turmoil and bitter hatred toward the mostly Muslim rebels and has left anyone accused of collaborating with them vulnerable to attack. The rebels’ 10-month rule was marked by human rights abuses, and sparked a Christian armed movement known as the anti-Balaka, which also has been accused of atrocities. Tit-for-tat violence killed more than 1,000 people in Bangui alone in a matter of days in December. An untold number have died in the weeks that followed, with most of the attacks in Bangui targeting Muslims. The violence is unprecedented in a country with little history of inter-communal conflict. There are now 5,000 African peacekeepers and 1,600 French troops on the ground. On Wednesday, they could only stand guard over the charred remains of the victim until Red Cross workers came to remove them.

# Ancient Confession Found: ‘We Invented Jesus Christ’

## Biblical scholars will be appearing at the ‘Covert Messiah’ Conference at Conway Hall in London on the 19th of October to present this controversial discovery to the British public.

Jesus Christ: completely constructed from other stories for an ancient Roman propaganda campaign?

[Jesus Christ] may be the only fictional character in literature whose entire life story can be traced to other sources.

London (PRWEB UK) 8 October 2013

American Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill will be appearing before the British public for the first time in London on the 19th of October to present a controversial new discovery: ancient confessions recently uncovered now prove, according to Atwill, that the New Testament was written by first-century Roman aristocrats and that they fabricated the entire story of Jesus Christ. His presentation will be part of a one-day symposium entitled “Covert Messiah” at Conway Hall in Holborn (full details can be found athttp://www.covertmessiah.com).

Although to many scholars his theory seems outlandish, and is sure to upset some believers, Atwill regards his evidence as conclusive and is confident its acceptance is only a matter of time. “I present my work with some ambivalence, as I do not want to directly cause Christians any harm,” he acknowledges, “but this is important for our culture. Alert citizens need to know the truth about our past so we can understand how and why governments create false histories and false gods. They often do it to obtain a social order that is against the best interests of the common people.”

Atwill asserts that Christianity did not really begin as a religion, but a sophisticated government project, a kind of propaganda exercise used to pacify the subjects of the Roman Empire. “Jewish sects in Palestine at the time, who were waiting for a prophesied warrior Messiah, were a constant source of violent insurrection during the first century,” he explains. “When the Romans had exhausted conventional means of quashing rebellion, they switched to psychological warfare. They surmised that the way to stop the spread of zealous Jewish missionary activity was to create a competing belief system. That’s when the ‘peaceful’ Messiah story was invented. Instead of inspiring warfare, this Messiah urged turn-the-other-cheek pacifism and encouraged Jews to ‘give onto Caesar’ and pay their taxes to Rome.”

Was Jesus based on a real person from history? “The short answer is no,” Atwill insists, “in fact he may be the only fictional character in literature whose entire life story can be traced to other sources. Once those sources are all laid bare, there’s simply nothing left.”

Atwill’s most intriguing discovery came to him while he was studying “Wars of the Jews” by Josephus [the only surviving first-person historical account of first-century Judea] alongside the New Testament. “I started to notice a sequence of parallels between the two texts,” he recounts. “Although it’s been recognised by Christian scholars for centuries that the prophesies of Jesus appear to be fulfilled by what Josephus wrote about in the First Jewish-Roman war, I was seeing dozens more. What seems to have eluded many scholars is that the sequence of events and locations of Jesus ministry are more or less the same as the sequence of events and locations of the military campaign of [Emperor] Titus Flavius as described by Josephus. This is clear evidence of a deliberately constructed pattern. The biography of Jesus is actually constructed, tip to stern, on prior stories, but especially on the biography of a Roman Caesar.”

How could this go unnoticed in the most scrutinised books of all time? “Many of the parallels are conceptual or poetic, so they aren’t all immediately obvious. After all, the authors did not want the average believer to see what they were doing, but they did want the alert reader to see it. An educated Roman in the ruling class would probably have recognised the literary game being played.” Atwill maintains he can demonstrate that “the Roman Caesars left us a kind of puzzle literature that was meant to be solved by future generations, and the solution to that puzzle is ‘We invented Jesus Christ, and we’re proud of it.'”

Is this the beginning of the end of Christianity? “Probably not,” grants Atwill, “but what my work has done is give permission to many of those ready to leave the religion to make a clean break. We’ve got the evidence now to show exactly where the story of Jesus came from. Although Christianity can be a comfort to some, it can also be very damaging and repressive, an insidious form of mind control that has led to blind acceptance of serfdom, poverty, and war throughout history. To this day, especially in the United States, it is used to create support for war in the Middle East.”

Atwill encourages skeptics to challenge him at Conway Hall, where after the presentations there is likely to be a lively Q&A session. Joining Mr.Atwill will be fellow scholar Kenneth Humphreys, author of the book “Jesus Never Existed.”

Christmas, Hidden History WARNING SPOILER

WARNING DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU STILL BELIEVE IN SANTA CLAUS OR JESUS FOR IT WILL RUIN IT FOR YOU.

Christmas has a complicated history. The modern Christmas (Christ’s mass or Xmas X(Chi) being the first letter of Χριστός or Christ. ) is a mixture of different religions and traditions from multiple countries. The Santa Claus mythology was added very recently and the most modern characterization was as recent as 1931. Old Saint Nick morphed from a Nick/Woden fusion flying on a white horse into a chubby cheerful red and white sporting grand father figure with flying reindeer. But there really isn’t a debate about Santa being a myth. The real issue is with the other guy who shares the holiday as his supposed birthday and that’s Jesus. And he’s just as mythical. Everyone knows that the Santa character and 90% of the Christmas rituals were adopted from Pagans into Christianity. So we’re going to address the other myths first but if you wanna know about Santa just skip on down to the red part.

One of the roots of Christmas was the Roman holiday called Saturnalia this was a celebration for the god Saturn from whom we also get the word Saturday and for Safari Jews (Sabbath day). Saturn’s name means (sower) one who sows, as in sowing seeds or the famous phrase. “you reap what you sow.”

Thus Saturn was of course the Harvest god. During the time of winter festival which was December 17th, the holiday (probably because it was so fun) was lengthened to become from December 17-24th. On this week the Romans had feasts, exchanged presents, shut down business, drank, gambled, sang, and sometimes got naked. And that is not an exaggeration. The reason it stopped on December 24th is because on December 25th, now Christmas, they had another festival, “Dies Natalis Solis Invicti,” “the birthday of the unconquered sun.” On this day they worshiped several different solar deities. This matches the perceived motions of the stars, where the sun appears to stop declining for three days and then reverse directions ascending higher each new day.

The story goes that there was a prophecy that said Saturn’s son would over throw him. So Saturn ate all of his male children to try and prevent this. However his wife Uranus hid one child on an island and gave her husband a stone wrapped in cloth and allowed him to believe it was the baby. Saturn ate the rock while his son Jupiter secretly grew up on the island and then over threw his father. This is a lot like the River in a Basket story of Moses and the Pharaoh. The Pharaoh supposedly killed all the first born male children because of a prophecy which said he would be over thrown, Moses grew up in the Pharaoh’s home raised by his daughter thus making him like a grand son to the Pharaoh. He was a first born who escaped death by his mother hiding him. Later Moses escaped that and grew up to turn on and defeated the pharaoh’s sorcerers in magical contests and free his people (The Hebrews) from slavery. (this is drenched in fiction).

Of course Moses turning staff into snakes, by magic, in a contest with the sorcerers, as it is written in the bible, is not accurate. There was a medical practice done by doctors who may have seems like wizards as in ancient civilizations, many cures were attributed to spiritual powers. The practice preformed by these men was that of removing a poisonous parasite still found in Africa today. The parasite is a worm and it had to be carefully removed by slowly twirling it around a stick. You could not just yank it out because it the worm broke it would poison the host. Men who could perform this task often hung a sign outside their workplace of a worm or snake twirled around a stick. Or they would walk with a staff that had a snake’s picture carved on it or even the top of the staff carved into the head of a snake. (Note that the biological distinctions between snakes and worms were void at the time).

This later became morphed into the Caduceus  which is still used today as a medical symbol. Later wings would be added to the symbol on the top with snakes below as they were the symbols of the upper and lower kingdoms of Egypt, a falcon and a cobra. The Caduceus was a symbol of the sorcerers or occultists’ magic, like people who could cure illnesses. Alchemy which became chemistry was also associated with Magic. Ironically, early Science and Religion were much one in the same.

Apparently, Moses new the same trick as the best magicians proving that he had equal or greater “spiritual” powers. Obviously they did not literally change wood into snakes. In all likelihood there wasn’t even a contest, the entire story is just made up. Now of course according to history, Moses did not free the Hebrew slaves. The Hebrews may have had a leader at a later date but much of the Moses story is total fiction. The Biblical Moses is a fictional character (if you define him by those story sets) the actual Moses who they are attributing these stories to was a military leader. But then again if you define the word “Moses” as a person who did all these biblical stories then Moses didn’t exist because, no such things happened and thus no person did them.

It’s just a myth copied from earlier myths.

Quote:
According to Exodus the Egyptian pharaoh decided that all the newborn Hebrew sons should be tossed in the Nile. When Moses was born his mother beat pharaoh to it and placed the toddler in a basket of papyrus made tight with dirt and pitch and tossed the basket in the Nile herself. He was then found and adopted by the pharaoh’s daughter (Ex 1-10).
An identical story on a clay tablet a thousand years older, dated ca 2300 BC, there is an identical story telling how the high priestess in the city of Azupia by the Euphrates gave birth to a son in secret since she as high priestess was supposed to live in chastity. She put her newborn son in a basket made tight with dirt and pitch, and placed it into the river (Euphrates). The child was found by Aqqi, the water bearer, and grew up to be a great king. The name of this child was Sargon (the true king) and he was one of the most important and influential Sumerian rulers and conquerors. His reign lasted for 56 years ( 2382-2327 BC) and the myth of his birth and childhood was read in the schools of Mesopotamia and was widely known, – obviously also for the authors of the Bible

In reality, or history, it was actually King Cyrus of Persia who set the Hebrew people free from slavery and way later than the dates said in the Moses myth. Cyrus was a Persian king who sacked the city of Babylon (now Baghdad) the capital of the Babylonian empire. This is also mentioned in the book of Hebrew in the Bible, which is a bit newer and much less ridiculous than the books of Geniuses and Exodus.

The Babylonian people were delighted about this because they were serving a very unpopular king Nabonidus who was worshiping the moon god Sin instead of the more popular Harvest God Marduk (the dragon). Marduk’s temple is of course the famous Tower of Babel which King Nebuchadnezzar II expanded on with Assyrian writing thus making it have two languages.

Nebuchadnezzar was also the King who created one of the wonders of the world the Hanging Gardens. And he conquered Judah and destroyed temples in Jerusalem. So naturally the Bible vilifies him and created the myth about the Tower of Babel trying to reach Heaven and the Hebrew god punishing men for it by scattering them all over the earth and creating different languages. Of course that’s Judeo-Christian mythology not history or reality.

It was Cyrus the Great who with the combined strength of Persia and Media who took Babylon without resistance while the unpopular Nabonidus was away. The Persian king did not believe in slavery and it was he who set the Hebrews free in Palestine. They did not gather up and walk out of Egypt right through the Red Sea and no Egyptians were chasing them. And no one wondered around in the desert for 40 years! (Ex 16,35). Obviously that should be commonsense.

As some of you know, the Jesus myth is copied from earlier sun god myths from Egypt and India. Namely the stories of Horus and Krishna. For example both Christ and Krishna had virgin births from a woman and the divine. Both were called the son of god,. Both had a last supper and both died and were resurrected. However the Krishna story is 332 years older than the claim of Jesus. Now the crucifixions were very different. Kristna was wounded in the foot by an arrow (like the Achilles myth) and then pinned to a tree. Acts 5:30 and 10:39 and 13:29 of the Bible as well as 1 Peter 2:24 and Galatians 3:13 refer to Christ hanging on a tree.

This is interesting to me because Achilles was also a half human and the son of Thetis who it was prophesied would have a son who would overthrow Zeus if he married her. Zeus (Greek) of course became Jupiter (Roman). Thus Achilles is Jupiter/Moses/Krishna/Jesus. Believers in reincarnation would have a field day with this, but it is much more likely that the same lies/half-truths/myths just get re-told. Zeus backed off from courting Thetis and she ended up with Prometheus (the bringer of light also known as Lucifer). Zeus or Prometheus (there is a debate) made man out of clay in godlike images and then Prometheus gave man “fire” wisdom. Then as punishment for Prometheus/Lucifer giving fire to man Zeus would then punish men by making them labor and have pains (much like the garden of Eden story). Later Old Zeus gave a special wedding gift to mankind. He gave it to a woman named Pandora, it was a box… Oh how like the Old Testament god Zeus is.

Horus was also born of the virgin Isis-Meri on December 25th in a cave/manger with his birth being announced by a star in the East and attended by three wise men. (Note that to Egyptians gods could be living men, they really believed the pharaohs were gods) Both Horace and Jesus were crucified between two thieves. Both walked on water. Horus was called KRST or the anointed one. Etc etc and Hebrews who became the Jews a sect of whom later created Christianity (a form of Judaism where the messiah is believed to have come and is open to all ethnicities rather than being intrinsically exclusive to a arbitrary ethnicity –which is it is genetically unscientific) close their prayers with Amen (the Egyptian sky god who became the “breath of life” used in the creation stories of man).

Even the ‘Jewish’ political nation/bloodline, and I am not getting into that, gets its name from a trinity of gods. Three Egyptian gods, Isis, Ra, and El became Israel. (Mother, Father, and of the sun and a generic word for god’s name (El) Exodus 6:3 God calls himself El Shaddai, it is still in any older Bible, but the newer ones replace his name with Lord or The Lord.

The land of course was Philistine/Canaan aka Palestine under the Babylonian empire, but that’s a tangent. It was never Israel. Israel is just the new name of a man (Jacob) who was awarded this new name after winning a wrestling match with an angel. Again this is fiction but people believe it. You can’t just make up a story and declare a land that actually already belongs and is inhabited by people as your own by pointing to a fictional book you wrote and claiming it as real history. But that’s what has been done.

Allegedly, God promised this land to his people and then the term Israel became the New name of Jacob (Genesis 32:28) and the Israelites were of his bloodline and the Promised land was to be just for them. This later changed to become not the Israelites but the Jews and Jews were people of multiple origins who might believe they have a common bloodline based on the fictional works but in reality, they do not and basically are anyone gullible enough who believes in the religion of Judaism thus Whites, Blacks, Hebrews, or whoever can be Jewish believers. But only Hebrews could be Israelites. Of course they would argue about this. Moderate Jews would say anyone can be Jewish and Zionist Jews cling to the ancient fascist ethnic claims.

December 25th is a special day in the year for astronomers/astrologers. It is the time of the winter solstice where the sun in farthest from the equatorial plane and on the horizon it seems to stand still for three days before changing directions and rising in the sky again thus being “reborn” and later bringing spring and summer. Now if you care, on the modern calendar this day is actually around December 21-22 maybe you can catch it next year.

Totally separate from the mythological mess in the South were a separate set of religions in Northern Europe who also had a late December winter calibration, after all they were all looking at the same sky, called Yule. This is when people set Yule logs on fire in honor of Thor the thunder god who would later became a marvel comic book character because of his unchallenged coolness among all the gods people have invented. Seriously, the Nordic myths (religions same thing) arguably have the best and most entertaining creation stories with the Greeks taking a close second place. I recommend you dig into it. Sometimes I think religions were like the old-school soap operas and pro-wrestling dramas of the day.

Now as you know the Christian armies ended up winning and then converting the youth (by force and torture) of the Pagans to some form of Christianity, only later to disagree about minor things divided into sects and killed each other again for 300 years. Thus the Scandinavian traditions had a large impact of Christmas because they were the last to be conquered. (Until the Native Americans who further influenced [for the better] Christianity again).

To better convert the Pagans it was a strategic must to assimilate their holidays. In fact if you want to know where the typical portrait of the Aryan Jesus came from look no further Apollonius of Tyana whose white face and features were copied to appeal more to the Northern converts.

Never mind that long hair being a direct contradiction with Corinthians 11:14 not like anyone actually reads their religious texts anymore anyway. We no longer teach history in schools, it’s too controversial with the money making myths. Also If Christ came from Krishna, Krishna was Black (or Dark Indian) that is what his name means.

It is from this Pagan root that you will get the stories about elves, and putting an evergreen inside your house and topping it with a goddess (or star) which later became an “angel” even though according to the Bible all angels are men and according to reality “angel” is the Latin word angelus, which came from Greek ἄγγελος, ángelos, meaning “messenger.” Angel came from the Greek word for messenger and probably got it wings the same way as the US postal service (who deliver messages) did, which would come from Greek messenger-god Hermes who had little wings on his feet and sometimes back. Apparently the evergreen tradition was old enough to bother the Jews of the Old Testament who wrote about Christmas trees (which apparently god didn’t like because they were of a different religion)

Quote:
Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. . . . They are altogether brutish and foolish.” (Jeremiah 10:2-8 )

-show that to your fundamentalist Christians.

But what about the Santa Claus story? Well believe it or not several myths about the myth have been made up to explain this story. Truth be known the modern figure of Santa in the Red and White with the beard etc came from the American company Coca-Cola. However the figure is much older than that. His name is Dutch, Sancte Claus. He is a combination of the Catholic St. Nicholas and a couple of poets in New York. But we’ll get to that next time. The physical depiction of him came from Coca-cola based on the famous poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

Quick Origin of Santa Claus

“a. Nicholas was born in Parara, Turkey in 270 CE and later became Bishop of Myra. He died in 345 CE on December 6th. He was only named a saint in the 19th century.

b. Nicholas was among the most senior bishops who convened the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE and created the New Testament. The text they produced portrayed Jews as “the children of the devil”[11] who sentenced Jesus to death.

c. In 1087, a group of sailors who idolized Nicholas moved his bones from Turkey to a sanctuary in Bari, Italy. There Nicholas supplanted a female boon-giving deity called The Grandmother, or Pasqua Epiphania, who used to fill the children’s stockings with her gifts. The Grandmother was ousted from her shrine at Bari, which became the center of the Nicholas cult. Members of this group gave each other gifts during a pageant they conducted annually on the anniversary of Nicholas’ death, December 6.

d. The Nicholas cult spread north until it was adopted by German and Celtic pagans. These groups worshiped a pantheon led by Woden –their chief god and the father of Thor, Balder, and Tiw. Woden had a long, white beard and rode a horse through the heavens one evening each Autumn. When Nicholas merged with Woden, he shed his Mediterranean appearance, grew a beard, mounted a flying horse, rescheduled his flight for December, and donned heavy winter clothing.

e. In a bid for pagan adherents in Northern Europe, the Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas cult and taught that he did (and they should) distribute gifts on December 25th instead of December 6th.

f. In 1809, the novelist Washington Irving (most famous his The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle) wrote a satire of Dutch culture entitled Knickerbocker History. The satire refers several times to the white bearded, flying-horse riding Saint Nicholas using his Dutch name, Santa Claus.

g. Dr. Clement Moore, a professor at Union Seminary, read Knickerbocker History, and in 1822 he published a poem based on the character Santa Claus: “Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in the hope that Saint Nicholas soon would be there…” Moore innovated by portraying a Santa with eight reindeer who descended through chimneys.

h. The Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast almost completed the modern picture of Santa Claus. From 1862 through 1886, based on Moore’s poem, Nast drew more than 2,200 cartoon images of Santa for Harper’s Weekly. Before Nast, Saint Nicholas had been pictured as everything from a stern looking bishop to a gnome-like figure in a frock. Nast also gave Santa a home at the North Pole, his workshop filled with elves, and his list of the good and bad children of the world. All Santa was missing was his red outfit.

i. In 1931, the Coca Cola Corporation contracted the Swedish commercial artist Haddon Sundblom to create a coke-drinking Santa. Sundblom modeled his Santa on his friend Lou Prentice, chosen for his cheerful, chubby face. The corporation insisted that Santa’s fur-trimmed suit be bright, Coca Cola red. [b]And Santa was born – a blend of Christian crusader, pagan god, and commercial idol.”

# Was Horus Born on December 25th of a Virgin?

### by Acharya S/D.M. Murdock

Jesus Christ is not the only god supposedly born of a virgin on December 25th. So too was Horus of Egypt.

In my book Suns of God: Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiledappears a discussion of the Egyptian solar deity Horus, who was said to have been born of a virgin on “December 25th” or the winter solstice. As an example of one writer making this claim, inThe Story of Religious Controversy, Joseph McCabe, a Catholic priest for many years, writes:

…Virginity in goddesses is a relative matter.

Whatever we make of the original myth…Isis seems to have been originally a virgin (or, perhaps, sexless) goddess, and in the later period of Egyptian religion she was again considered a virgin goddess, demanding very strict abstinence from her devotees. It is at this period, apparently, that the birthday of Horus was annually celebrated, about December 25th, in the temples. As both Macrobius and the Christian writer [of the "Paschal Chronicle"] say, a figure of Horus as a baby was laid in a manger, in a scenic reconstruction of a stable, and a statue of Isis was placed beside it. Horus was, in a sense, the Savior of mankind. He was their avenger against the powers of darkness; he was the light of the world. His birth-festival was a real Christmas before Christ.

“The birthday of Horus was annually celebrated, about December 25th.”

Here we see the contention that Horus’s mother, Isis, was a virgin and that the ancient Latin author Macrobius (5th cent. AD/CE) and the compilers of a text called the “Paschal Chronicle” refer to the annual Egyptian celebration of the birth of a baby “laid in a manger.”

### The Chronicon Paschale

As I explain in Suns of God, the Chronicon Paschale, or Paschal Chronicle, also known as the Chronicle of Alexandria, is a compilation begun in the third century and finalized in the 7th century AD/CE that seeks to establish a Christian chronology from “creation” to the year 628 CE, focusing on the date of Easter.

In establishing Easter, the Christian authors naturally discussed astronomy/astrology, since such is the basis of the spring celebration, a pre-Christian festival founded upon the vernal equinox, or spring, when the “sun of God” is resurrected in full from his winter death. Hence, Easter is the resurrection of the sun.

Concerning the Paschal Chronicle, in The Origin of All Religious Worship (237), French mythicist scholar Charles Francois Dupuis (1742-1809), a professor at the Collège de France, states:

…the author of the Chronicle of Alexandria…expresses himself in the following words: “The Egyptians have consecrated up to this day the child-birth of a virgin and the nativity of her son, who is exposed in a ‘crib’ to the adoration of the people. King Ptolemy, having asked the reason of this custom, he was answered that it was a mystery, taught by a respectable prophet to their fathers.”

“The Egyptians have consecrated up to this day the child-birth of a virgin and the nativity of her son, who is exposed in a ‘crib’ to the adoration of the people.”

Providing another translation of the pertinent passage, the author of Christian Mythology Unveiled cites the “most ancient chronicles of Alexandria,” which “testify as follows”:

“To this day, Egypt has consecrated the pregnancy of a virgin, and the nativity of her son, whom they annually present in a cradle, to the adoration of the people; and when king Ptolemy, three hundred and fifty years before our Christian era, demanded of the priests the significance of this religious ceremony, they told him it was a mystery.”

Following up on the numerous and consistent leads, in my book Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection, I include 120 pages on the subjects of the Egyptian virgin birth on the winter solstice, providing primary sources and the works of highly credentialed authorities from relevant fields. One original Greek manuscript of this passage in the Chronicon is as follows:

Εως νυν Αιγυπτιοι θεοποιουσιν Παρθενου λοχον και ΒρεΦος εν Φατνη τιθεντες προσκυνουσιν. Και Πτολεμαιω τω Βασιλει την αιτιαν πυνθανομενω ελεγον, οτι παραδοτον εστι μυστηριον υπο οσιου Προφητου τοις πατρασιν ημων παραδοθεν.

Preceding this discussion, the Chronicon author(s) contends that the biblical prophet Jeremiah was in Egypt (seven) centuries before the common era, where he taught the doctrine of the virgin-born savior in a manger, thus explaining its presence in pre-Christian Egyptian religion. As we know, however, the virgin-mother motif precedes biblical doctrine and represents a very ancient religious and spiritual concept.

Confirming the contentions in the Chronicon, ancient Latin writer Macrobius (Saturnalia, I, XVIII:10) also reported on the annual Egyptian “Christmas” celebration, specifying the time as the winter solstice or “December 25th”:

…at the winter solstice the sun would seem to be a little child, like that which the Egyptians bring forth from a shrine on an appointed day, since the day is then at its shortest and the god is accordingly shown as a tiny infant.

Here we can see the precise meaning of the theme of the newborn sun at the winter solstice, a motif representing the lengthening of days after the darkest time of the year. Egyptologist Dr. Bojana Mojsov explains further the significance in Egypt: “The symbol of the savior-child was the eye of the sun newly born every year at the winter solstice.”

“At the winter solstice, the sun would seem to be a little child, like that which the Egyptians bring forth from a shrine on an appointed day, since the day is then at its shortest.”

In Christ in Egypt appears a lengthy analysis of the works of early Church father Epiphanius, including his discussion of the Egyptian winter-solstice celebration, which in Panarion adversus Haereses (51, 22.4-11) he names as “Chronia” and “Cicellia.” Intriguingly, Epiphanius’s account is censored in the Migne Greek edition to remove the parts about the winter solstice reverence of a babe in a manger born to a virgin. With difficulty, I was able to find the original, uncensored Greek passage and reference it in Christ in Egypt (84ff).

Epiphanius discusses the Kikellia or winter-solstice festival as taking place in the large Egyptian city of Alexandria “at the so-called Virgin’s shrine.” Railing against “those who guilefully preside over the cult of idols” and who “in many places deceitfully celebrate a very great festival on the very night of the Epiphany” (51, 22.8), Epiphanius next describes this festival as follows (51, 22.9-10):

First, at Alexandria, in the Coreum, as they call it; it is a very large temple, the shrine of Core. They stay up all night singing hymns to the idol with a flute accompaniment. And when they have concluded their nightlong vigil torchbearers descend into an underground shrine after cockcrow…and bring up a wooden image which is seated naked a litter. It has a sign of the cross inlaid with gold on its forehead, two other such signs, [one] on each hand, and two other signs, [one] actually [on each of] its two knees—altogether five signs with a gold impress. And they carry the image itself seven times round the innermost shrine with flutes, tambourines and hymns, hold a feast, and take it back down to its place underground. And when you ask them what this mystery means they reply that today at this hour Core—that is, the virgin—gave birth to Aeo.

“This sacred image in Egypt constitutes the divine son of the holy virgin mother within Paganism.”

Here we find a Pagan sacred icon with a cross on its forehead, like that made by Catholic priests on the heads of Christian worshippers. We also discover this sacred image constitutesthe divine son of the holy virgin mother within Paganism! This Pagan virgin mother was styled Core or Kore, meaning “maiden,” as another name for the Greek nature goddess Persephone, who descended each year into the underworld, to return at springtime, bringing life back with her.

#### The Virgin Birth at Petra

This same event of the Pagan virgin goddess giving birth to the divine son was celebrated also by Arabs at the ancient site of Petra in Jordan, as likewise recounted by Epiphanius (51, 22.11):

This also goes on in the city of Petra, in the idolatrous temple there. (Petra is the capital city of Arabia, the scriptural Edom.) They praise the virgin with hymns in the Arab language and call her Chaamu—that is, Core, or virgin—in Arabic. And the child who is born of her they call Dusares, that is, “only son of the Lord.” And this is also done that night in the city of Elusa, as it is there in Petra, and in Alexandria.

Regarding Epiphanius’s account, in a chapter entitled “The Virgin Birth,” Joseph Campbell writes:

We learn from the fourth-century saint and churchman Epiphanius (ca. 315-402), for example, of an annual festival observed in Alexandria on January 6, the date assigned to the Epiphany and (originally) the Nativity of Christ, and to his Baptism as well. The pagan occasion was in celebration of the birth of the year-god Aion to the virgin goddess Kore, a Hellenized transformation of Isis.

As I also discuss in Suns of GodChrist in Egypt and elsewhere, the date of January 6th was one of several winter-solstice festivals in antiquity, likewise celebrated by the Orthodox Church as Christ’s “birthday.” As we can see, the esteemed mythologist Campbell comprehended that this “Christmas” celebration predates Christianity and revolves around the virgin birth of the “year god.” This “only son of the Lord” Aeo or Aion is also a “light god” and is identified with theGreek god Dionysus and other solar deities. Moreover, here we see the identification of thisvirgin with the goddess Isis, whose son is Horus. (For more information and citations, see Christ in Egypt.)

As concerns Horus in particular serving as the “light god,” it should be noted that he was syncretized often with the sun god Ra as “Ra-Horakhty” or “Horus of the Two Horizons,” representing the rising and setting sun. This “Horus the Child” was also known to the Greeks as Harpocrates. In this form, Horus thus is born daily, including and especially at the winter solstice.

“About the time of the winter solstice, Isis gave birth to Harpocrates, imperfect and premature.”

In this regard, we learn from one of the most famous historians of the first century, Plutarch, that Horus the Child/Harpocrates was “born about the winter solstice, unfinished and infant-like…” (Isis and Osiris (65, 387C);Babbitt, 153) Plurarch’s original Greek is as follows:

τίκτεσθαι δὲ τὸν Ἁρποκράτην περὶ τροπὰς χειμερινὰς ἀτελῆ καὶ νεαρὸν ἐν τοῖς προανθοῦσι καὶ προβλαστάνουσι

In this same passage, we learn further from Plutarch that the Egyptians “observe the festival of her child-birth after the vernal equinox.” This mythical motif of the two births of Horus at these times of the winter solstice and vernal equinox makes sense when one considers that we are discussing nature and solar deities. The astrotheological meaning of these two solar “births” connotes the increasing light after the solstice and the final triumph of day over night at the vernal equinox, after which the days begin to become longer than the night.

### Hieroglyphs

Other indications of the Egyptian observation of the winter solstice can be found in hieroglyphs, as I relate in Christ in Egypt (94): As Egyptologist Dr. Heinrich Brugsch explains, the Egyptians not only abundantly recorded and revered the time of the winter solstice, they also created a number of hieroglyphs to depict it, including and image of the goddess-sisters Isis and Nephthys with the solar disc floating above their hands over a lifegiving ankh – the looped Egyptian cross – as the sun’s rays extend down to the cross symbol.

Isis and Nephthys holding the baby sun
over the life-giving ankh,
representing the winter solstice

This image of the sun between Isis and Nephthys, which is sometimes depicted without the ankh, is described in an inscription at Edfu regarding Ptolemy VII (fl. 145 BCE?) and applied to the winter solstice, translated as: “The sun coming out of the sky-ocean into the hands of the siblings Isis and Nephthys.” This image very much looks like the sun being born, which is sensible, since, again, Horus the Child or Harpocrates, the morning sun, was born every day, including at the winter solstice.

“Horus the Child, the morning sun, was born every day, including at the winter solstice.”

There are many other artifacts in Egypt that demonstrate Horus’s association with the winter solstice, including his temples aligned to the rising sun at that time of the year. Indeed, the Horus/winter-solstice data is so extensive that I was compelled to include a 40-page chapter inChrist in Egypt entitled “Born on December 25th.”

## The Feast of Sokar

In the winter-solstice chapter in CIE also appears a discussion of the feast of the Egyptian god Sokar or Seker, syncretized with both Osiris and Horus, appearing as the newborn sun in the shape of a baby falcon or hawk, a solar symbol because the bird flies highest in the sky. Like Osiris, Sokar is considered a form of the sun god as he passes through the underworld, to be born as Horus at the dawn. As such, he is represented as a triune god Ptah-Sokar-Osiris, who is present at the birth of the baby Sokar during the winter solstice.

Egyptian god(s) Ptah-Osiris-Sokar approaches the baby sun god Sokar at the winter solstice

“In Egypt, the festival of the baby sun god Sokar occurs on 26 Khoiak, corresponding to December 22nd.”

As I also state in Christ in Egypt, Sokar’s festival occurs on 26 Khoiak, as related in the Calendar of Hathor at Dendera, corresponding at the turn of the common era to December 22nd. The longstanding ritual of Sokar being carried out of the temple on this day in an “ark” closely resembles the commentary by Epiphanius, the Paschal Chronicle and Macrobius concerning the Egyptians bringing forth the baby sun born of a virgin at the winter solstice.

This Egyptian “Christmas” celebration – again, styled by Epiphanius the “Kikellia” – has also been called the “Rites of Isis” and has been asserted elsewhere to begin a few days earlier than December 25th, such as the “true” solstice of the 21st or 22nd, corresponding to the Sokar festival.

#### The 3,400-Year-Old Reborn Sun

Sokar/Seker as the “reborn sun” was conceived at least 3,400 years ago, as related by famed astronomer Dr. Gerald Hawkins:

In Kherouef’s tomb, circa 1400 B.C., it says, “The doors of the underworld are open, O Sokaris, sun in the sky. O reborn one, you are seen brilliant on the horizon and you give back Egypt her beauty each time the sky is pierced with rays…”

Regarding the “feast of Sokar,” Amanda-Alice Maravelia states, “The festival of Sokar was celebrated with considerable pomp, probably rivaling the festival of Opet; it was the continuity of the cult of the divine king connected with the resurrection of the god.” Furthermore, it was claimed that Osiris died during the feast of Sokar, in other words, around the winter solstice.

“The festival was connected with the winter solstice, with the ‘little sun,’ as the Egyptians called it at that time.”

Concerning this feast, John Gardner Wilkinson remarks:

At the festival of the god his bark was borne in solemn procession round the walls of the temple of Sokaris…. The festival was connected with the winter solstice, with the “little sun,” as the Egyptians called it at that time. In the Ptolemaic period it fell on the morning of the 26th of Khoiak (22nd December), while in earlier times it would seem to have been held in the evening….

Brugsch likewise discusses the fest of Sokar, which was held on the 26th of Koiak, equivalent to December 22nd in the Julian calendar and December 25th in the calendar of Eudoxus (410/408-355/347 BCE). In the temple of Dendera, Brugsch relates, we find a description of the 26th of Koiak—December 22nd also in the Alexandrian calendar—as representing the day of the winter solstice and of the “Rising of Osiris as the sun and moon.”

“December 22nd (26 Koiak) represents the day of the winter solstice and of the ‘Rising of Osiris as the sun and moon.'”

Moreover, like Horus, one of Sokar’s major roles is that of the resurrected Osiris; hence, the baby sun as a hawk/falcon emerges at the winter solstice as the resurrected Osiris. Thus, we can state once more that the Egyptian sun god dies and is reborn at the winter solstice, precisely as we find in other cultures. (For more information on Sokar, as well as citations, seeChrist in Egypt.)

### Other Solstice Celebrations

The winter-solstice celebrations were so important that at times they exceeded the one or two days of the actual solstice in the Gregorian calendar, i.e., December 21st or 22nd. Solstice celebrations therefore do not necessarily fall on the traditional time of the solstice – “solstice” meaning “sun stands still” – but may occur up to several days before or after, such as is exemplified by the Roman celebration of Saturnalia, which began on the December 17th and ended on the 23rd.

As demonstrated in my 2010 Astrotheology Calendar, the entire month of December, along with a couple of weeks before and after, has been filled with winter celebrations of sun and light deities in cultures globally. In my calendar, I converted the dates of the Egyptian wandering calendar to when these festivities would have occurred in the year 1 AD/CE.

As we can see, around the year 1 AD/CE the death and resurrection of Osiris were aligned in the wandering Egyptian calendar to the winter solstice, when the birth of Sokar also occurred. Both of these gods are syncretized with Horus.

“Around the year 1 AD/CE, the death and resurrection of Osiris were aligned to the winter solstice, as was the birth of Sokar, both of whom were identified with Horus.”

### The Sun Born of the Celestial Virgin

One of the meanings behind the virgin-born solar-deity myth is the pristine dawn birthing the new sun, while it was also said that the moon reflecting the sun’s rays likewise gave birth to the solar entity. Another connotation is the constellation of Virgo, in Ptolemaic times identified with Isis: “According to [Pseudo-]Eratosthenes, the celestial Virgin was supposed to be Isis, that is, the symbol of the returning year.”

In a text called The Katasterismoi or Catasterismi, “Pseudo-Eratosthenes” includes an essay on the constellation of Virgo called Παρθένος or “Parthenos,” a Greek word usually rendered “virgin.” According to this text, which dates to the 1st to 2nd centuries AD/CE but purports to be an epitome of the (lost) writings of the Greek astronomer Eratosthenes (276-194 BCE), Isis appears among other deities represented by this virginal figure:

Hesiod in the Theogony says this figure is Dike, the daughter of Zeus [Dios] and Themis… Some say it is Demeter because of the sheaf of grain she holds, others say it is Isis, others Atagartis, others Tyche…and for that reason they represent her as headless.

This Greek word parthenos used to describe these various goddesses, including Isis, is theidentical term by which Jesus’s mother, Mary, is called decades to centuries later (Mt 1:23Lk 1:27). Also like Isis, Mary too is called virgo, in Jerome’s Latin Vulgate Bible. In antiquity, therefore, both in Egyptian hieroglyphs and in Greek texts, Isis is styled the “Great Virgin.”

“The Greek word parthenos used to describe Isis as a ‘virgin’ is theidentical term by which Jesus’s mother, Mary, is called decades to centuries later.”

The virgin-mother motif predates Christianity by thousands of years and revolves around the Goddess parthenogenetically reproducing the universe. This motif of parthenogenesis was applied to Isis’s very ancient alter ego, Neith, possibly 7,000 or more years ago. (For more information on the Egyptian virgin-mother goddess, see the chapter “The Virgin Isis-Mery” inChrist in Egypt.)

Explaining the astrotheological theme regarding Isis and her baby, Count Volney remarks:

It is the sun which, under the name of Horus, was born, like your [Christian] God, at the winter solstice, in the arms of the celestial virgin, and who passed a childhood of obscurity, indigence, and want, answering to the season of cold and frost.

Regarding the astrotheological nature of the gospel story, including the virgin birth, the famous Christian theologian and saint Albertus Magnus, or Albert the Great, (1193?-1280) purportedly stated:

“We know that the sign of the celestial Virgin did come to the horizon at the moment where we have fixed the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. All the mysteries of the incarnation of our Saviour Christ; and all the circumstances of his marvellous life, from his conception to his ascension, are to be traced out in the constellations, and are figured in the stars.”

The sign of the celestial Virgin did come to the horizon at the moment where we have fixed the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

As Albert the Great acknowledged, the virgin-birth motif is astrotheological, referring to the hour of midnight, December 25th, when the constellation of Virgo rises on the horizon. The Assumption of the Virgin, celebrated in Catholicism on August 15th, represents the summer sun’s brightness blotting out Virgo. Mary’s Nativity, celebrated on September 8th, occurs when the constellation is visible again. Such is what these “Christian” motifs and holidays represent, as has obviously been known by the more erudite of the Catholic clergy. Hence, the virgin who will conceive and bring forth is Virgo, and her son is the sun.

“The mythical motif of the sun god born at the winter solstice of a virgin precedes the common era by many centuries.”

The mythical motif of the sun god born at the winter solstice of a virgin precedes the common era by many centuries. As demonstrated here, its presence in the myths of Sokar, a form of both Osiris and Horus, dates back over 3,000 years. The same motif was celebrated as applied to Aion, Horus and other virgin-born solar deities around the globe for millennia.

### 10 Remarkable Origins of Common Christmas Traditions

Christmas

Christmas, as most of us know, is the Christian tradition honoring the birth of Christ Christmas represents a time of joy, gift-giving, and family. Christmas as we know it evolved out of the Roman tradition of Saturnalia, a festival honoring their god of agriculture, Saturn, on the winter solstice.

Due to the already-rampant celebration taking place on the date and the revering of light and the sun, it was a natural development to celebrate the birth of Christ on the same date. Many Roman writers give references to the date of December 25th and Christianity between the 2nd and 3rd centuries, and it is believed that the holiday was widely celebrated by Christians by the turn of the 4th century. Though Christmas is celebrated as the birth of Jesus Christ, we don’t know the exact date, or even the year of his birth.

It is sometimes said that the tradition of gift-giving started with the 3 wise men, who visited Jesus and gave him gifts of myrrh, frankincense, and gold.
During Saturnalia, children would often be given gifts of wax dolls – an act with a rather macabre history itself; the dolls were used to represent human sacrifices that Rome had given to Saturn in the past as payment for good harvests. Boughs of certain trees and other plant matter were also a common gifts during Saturnalia, and were used to represent bounty and good harvests.

X-mas

While some rather ignorant groups in the Americas believe that the abbreviation “x-mas” is an attempt by the “dirty liberals” to “keep the Christ out of Christmas”, the true origins have a strong basis in Christianity. In the abbreviation, the X stands for the Greek letter Chi, the first letter of the Greek word for Christ. Jesus’ name has also been abbreviated as XP, a combination of the first and second letters of the Greek word for Christ. From XP comes the labarum, a holy symbol in Orthodox Christianity that represents Jesus.

The term X-mas has been used since the 16th century, though it gained prominent usage in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the modern world, X has been taken to be used as an abbreviation for any word with Christ or the “krys” sound in it, even in words which have no etymological connection. Chrysanthemum, for example, is sometime shortened to “xant” on florist’s signs, and crystal has sometimes been abbreviated as “xtal”.

Stockings

Many people know of Saint Nicholas being the basis of Santa Claus, but the practice of stocking-stuffing can be traced back to his charitable donations in the 4th century. Nicholas believed that childhood should be savored and enjoyed – but in a time where boys and girls younger than 10 had to work to support their families, this wasn’t always possible.

He therefore gave what he could in homemade food, clothes, and furniture. The bishop even gave out oranges, which would have been very rare and expensive in Lycia, where he lived. The problem became where to leave these gifts so that the children would find them. According to legends, he then saw girls’ stockings hanging above the fireplace, and ol’ Saint Nick (to paraphrase) thought “Why the hell not?”. From then on, children would hang stockings up hoping that Saint Nicholas would visit them that night.

Beyond St. Nick, the practice can be traced back to Scandinavian countries that still held their Pagan beliefs. Children would leave their shoes full of carrots, straw, or other similar foods for Odin’s mythic horse, Sleipnir. When Sleipnir ate the food, Odin would leave candy or other treats in their place.

Wreaths

Since classical antiquity, the wreath has been used as a symbol of power and strength. In Rome and Greece, kings and emperors often wore laurel wreathes as crowns – a practice they themselves borrowed from the Etruscans, who predated them. The Greeks and the Romans connected the laurel wreath to their sun god, Apollo, and considered the crown to embody his values.

Harvest wreathes – the predecessors to our modern decorations – were used in rituals for good harvests, and predate even written history. Ancient European animists often used evergreen in their wreathes to symbolize strength and fortitude, as an evergreen will live through even the harshest of winters. As for the connection to Christianity, since wreathes symbolized tenacity and everlasting life, they were often used in funerals of important people, specifically in the burials of saints and martyrs.

Christmas Tree

The modern Christmas tree differs greatly from its roots; today, we decorate an everlasting, artificial construct with bright lights and dazzling ornaments, while traditionally, the tree was of course, real and more importantly, decorated with edibles such as apples and nuts. The tradition, as with that of the wreath, started with the elements symbolized by evergreens in pre-Christian winter festivals: immortality and fortitude.

The evergreen was also known to have represented the same values to a variety of cultures, including the Egyptians, Chinese, and Hebrews. The worship of trees was also very common in European druidism and paganism. In Christian tradition, trees were often put up in December to serve the dual purpose of warding off the devil and allowing a perch for whatever birds still remained. Evergreen trees decorated with apples and wafers were also used in Christmas Eve plays during the Middle Ages to represent the tree from which Adam and Eve at the forbidden fruit. As for decoration, the first evidence for decorated Christmas trees comes from German craftsman guilds during the Renaissance. After the Protestant Reformation, trees enjoyed a surge of popularity among Protestant households as counterparts to the Catholic nativity scene.

Caroling

Christmas carols grew out of the first Christmas hymns, which developed in 4th century Rome. While these Latin hymns were sung in church for generations, the first true carols developed in France, Germany, and Italy in the 13th century. These carols, written in the vernacular language of the area they were composed, were enthusiastically sung at community events and festivals. They were not composed specifically as Christmas carols, but rather as conglomerate holiday songs that were sung at many separate festivals and celebrations.

Later on, the songs would become associated primarily with Christmas and sung in numerous churches. Carols in Protestant churches were much more numerous, since the Protestant movement encouraged the arts, especially music. The modern practice of going door-to-door caroling likely has something to do with the root word for carol, “carole” or “carula” which both mean a circular dance. The practice may have developed out of the public ceremonies that created the first carols.

Boxing Day

Boxing Day is, as opposed to the rest of this list, an instance where a secular holiday grew out of a religious one. In most English speaking countries, Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas in which people receive gifts from their bosses or employers.

Today, Boxing Day is known as a shopping day similar to Black Friday. Many important sporting events are also commonly held on the holiday. Boxing day grew out of St. Stephen’s day, a Christian holiday that commemorates the eponymous St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr. St. Stephen was a deacon in an early church in Jerusalem. After an argument with members of the synagogue, he was accused of blasphemy. While waiting for his trial, he said he had seen God the Father and Son, though this wasn’t enough to save him – he was stoned anyway.

Mistletoe

Mistletoe is a parasitic plant which perches on a tree branch and absorbs nutrients from the trunk – hardly one of the most romantic forms of life. But it has been inspiring people to go at it for generations. Mistletoe has a large mythological background across many cultures.

The Greeks believed that Aeneas, the famous ancestor of the Romans carried a sprig of mistletoe in the form of the legendary golden bough. In Eddic tradition, mistletoe was the only thing able to kill the god Baldur, since it had not sworn an oath to leave him alone. Amongst other pre-Christian cultures, mistletoe was believed to carry the male essence, and by extension, romance, fertility, and vitality.

Its use as decoration stems from the fact that it was believed to protect homes from fire and lightning. It was commonly hung at Christmas time only to remain there all year until being replaced by another sprig next Christmas. The process by which mistletoe became associated with kissing is currently unknown, but it was first recorded in 16th century England as a very popular practice. Mistletoe carries a pretty good legacy, for a parasite of a plant that causes diarrhea and stomach pain when ingested.

Santa

Most people know that Santa’s origins lie in Saint Nicholas, that generous Saint who gave presents to needy children. However, many other figures evolved into the conglomerate we call Santa Claus.

For one, the Dutch Sinterklaas, who himself has basis with Saint Nick, was the main inspiration for Santa Claus. He is nearly identical to Santa: he wears red and white, knows if you’re naughty or nice, and has elf helpers referred to as Zwarte Piet. However, the legend takes on a much darker legend when one hears that the Zwarte Piet’s duties also include punishing naughty children with “jute bags and willow canes”. He also differs from Santa in the facts that he wears a bishop’s hat and comes on steam boat from Spain, rather than the North Pole.

Another large influence into Santa’s design is the British Father Christmas, a figure developed in the 17th century as the embodiment of holiday joy and mirth. Odin also exists as a potential pagan inspiration for Santa Claus; he lead a hunting party with other gods on Yule, a German holiday at roughly the same time as Christmas; he rode Sleipnir, a legendary horse with 8 legs; like Santa, he has 8 reindeer; and he would fill children’s’ boots with candy, as mentioned earlier.

The modern Santa Claus, contrary to popular belief, was not created by Coca-Cola, but has been in American folklore since the late 18th century. His name comes from an Americanization of Sinterklaas, and somewhere along the way, he lost his bishop’s hat.

# Sssh, it’s Happy Eastern Star, oops or is it Ēostre? Don’t forget your Osterhase Eggs!!

Eostre

The Easter Bunny, ah, is not ‘bunny’ or ‘Bunnywabbit’ at all, but is actually an Hare.

The Hare was the sacred animal of Eostre [or Oestra or Ostera], the ancient Teutonic Goddess of the Spring Moon. At the time of the vernal equinox [March or April] the hares are famed for going ‘mad as a March Hare’, and it was at this time of the year that out of character for its species, one of Eostre’s hares laid an egg.

Not just any old egg, for this was the Egg of a New Life – the Eostre Egg.

From Kit Williams – Masquerade, that made me and 1000’s of others dig up country Manor lawns, golf courses and wherever we thought the “Golden hare” was buried!

Though isn’t Easter a Christian festival marking Jesus Christ’s resurrection after dying on the cross, and not a ceremony to a Pagan hare-headed goddess?

Well of course it is, as actually it’s both.

Synod of Whitby

After much debate at the Synod of Whitby in the 5th Century, the ‘Christian Easter’ is destined to fall roughly around the same time as the ‘Pagan Easter’ due to its association to the Judaic Passover, – which is also fixed by the lunar cycle.

Both these festivals could also be said to reflect new life, either Christ’s return from the dead or the blossom and birth of Spring. So with that in mind, it was not too much of a stretch of the imagination for the “Christian Church” to merge both festivals together.

And this is what is known as ‘assimilation’ and was a habit frequently employed in those times to ease and encourage, rather than to force it down the throats in their conversion of wild heathens that trod these lands.

Easter – The East-Star, is all about fertility, reborn, rebirth and the Lions Paw and all that; “…the raising of Hiram Abif” in Freemasonry, – what Faberge’s eggs symbolise and why Lady Gaga came on stage in an “egg”.

Rebirth of Hiram Abif

Lady Gaga goes to work in an Egg

Like I say, it’s not really a Rabbit, as pagan tradition fits more comfortably with the Hare, for “eggs”, like hares and rabbits are also fertility symbols of ancient times.  Since birds lay eggs and hares and rabbits give birth to large litters in the early spring, these became symbols of the rising fertility of the earth at the Vernal Equinox.

The Vernal Equinox

The origins of an egg-laying bunny wabbit in the USA came about in the 18th century, when German immigrants in the Pennsylvania Dutch area told their children about the “Osterhas”,  also spelt “Osterhase”, ‘Hase’ means “hare”, and in Northwest European folklore, the “Easter Bunny” indeed is a hare, not a rabbit.

## Has, Has, Osterhas – Musik: Volkslied – Text: Paula Dehmel [1862-1918]

Has, Has, Easter Bunny,
We do not want to wait any longer.
The crocus and daisies,
Forget-me-nots and tulips stand
been long in unser’m garden.

Father Christmas

Father Christmas is a combination of both the Holly King [of Hollywood], the personification of the Pagan winter festival of Yule-Tide and Santa Claus, and the Eastern Saint Nicholas who represents the Christian Advent-Tide.

He is both these things and more, a curious conglomerate of various Heathen and Christian motifs. He was once accompanied by strange and ill-tempered dwarves such as Knecht Ruprecht and Balck Peter, who would whip impatient, greedy and badly-behaved children with birch-wood canes.

St. Nicholas and Black Peter…“Dave, is that you Dave, Dave…”

Papa Lazarous – “Hello Dave” from the series ‘League of Gentlemen’

Knecht Ruprecht

In America and in modern day in general, there’s been what we could call a rather misconception about the Christmas character that is largely unrecognised, as Knecht Ruprecht, is the scary and even sinister companion to Saint Nicholas.

The red cloak of Saint Nichlos

What does Ruprecht do with that rod of his?

Is this not where the origins and traditions of corporal punishment, such as the Birch on the Isle of Man, or the Cane at school came from?

As he beats children who have been bad, naughty and not that very nice!

Knecht Ruprecht

Knecht Ruprecht, who has different personas in different nations.  In some eastern European countries Knecht Ruprecht is called “Krampus”, an horned beast, – and perhaps where we get the term; “He’s got the horn”, or is that a gun in his pocket”?

Bush and other world leaders love giving it the Krampus greeting!!

The Kallikantzaroi

The Kallikantzaroi, are a kind of deformed Greek fairy/ies that appear during the 12 days of Christmas ‘…my true love said to me…;

At night they make a procession through the streets in good old Rodeo fashion riding on animals or chickens backs.  They are the size of small children, but monstrous little buggers with oversized heads, tusks and other attributes of animals – and the film; Gremlins comes to mind.  They will torment those they encounter, though they finally leave at the Epiphany, to return the following Christmas!

“Only Coca-Cola” – “That dam Cocaine goes everywhere…slurp!

Modern day Santa Claus has been so watered down, it’s like American beer, as we actually love the old toad, so much so my aunty Bess often helps “Santa” empty his sack, as he’s been known to have the odin, I mean odd accident, and could often be seen to shed his load!

From an Odin archetype, we now have a fat Coca-Cola styled jolly old chap alongside his frightening little helper, who has been transformed into a harmless elf toy maker of Lapland,“We had to sell-out, we had no choice, have you seen the price of Reindeers”

Odin King

Yet there is something primal about the combination of the original version of the European Saint Nicholas and old Knecht Ruprecht, though it’s said there’s a true-life message behind all this folklore, and after all it’s what gives fairy tales their influence.  Children are taught that life does not always provide gifts and joy.  Side by side with happiness is desperation and despair, and that on that one day we might have plenty to eat, when the next we may be starving.

Appreciate it when there is plenty, for hard times are always lurking nearby, like Ruprecht with his rod of punishment, – life’s duality is indeed a hard lesson and bitter Blue or Red pill to swallow.

According to the legend, and like that of Santa Claus, it’s only good children who receive “coloured eggs” in the nests they made in the form of their caps and bonnets before Easter, and like at Christmas time when an old stocking or sock is used.

One of the Brothers Grimm, Jacob, wrote in 1835, of a long-standing myth in Germany itself. Grimm suggested that these derived from legends of the reconstructed continental Germanic goddess Ostara.

That it’s hardly surprising that rabbits and hares should become fertility symbols, or that their springtime mating antics should enter into realms of Easter folklore.

Chocolate Easter Bilby

The Aussies have Easter Bilby’s, – Bilbies are native Australian marsupial, as they had no “European” rabbits until some idiot introduced them into the wild, and they did what they do, which is breed like rabbit’s and ravaged the continent for decades.

## This operation decimated almost all the wild rabbit population, except a few individuals that seemed resistant to this virus. The surviving rabbits started to reproduce offspring and colonised the country anew. In Europe, the virus spread rapidly and has now become endemic in some regions, which are populated by the European rabbit.

Many Christians to this day typically dye their Easter eggs red, in recognition of the blood of the Christ, thus the renewal of life in springtime. If green in colour, it’s in honour of the new leaves and foliage emerging after the dead of winter.

German Protestants wanted to retain the Catholic custom of eating coloured eggs for Easter, but did not want to introduce their children to the Catholic rite of fasting. Eggs were forbidden to Catholics during the fast of Lent, which was the reason for the abundance of eggs at Easter time, the end of Lent.

Many of my Catholic “friends”, do this each year, then they scoff their little appy faces off with chocey running all down their chiny chin-chins as soon as the time arrives!

However my droogs, if we are trying to uncover the truth of the matter, we have to go back even further and before the likes of “Christ” was even contemplated and created by man.

The “Eastern Star” in Christian tradition, is the same Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star, which revealed the birth of Jesus to the Magi, that later led them onto old Bether’s. The star appears in the nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew, where Magi “from the East” are inspired by the star to travel to Jerusalem.  The Magi [and where surely the origins the word Magic derives from], are also referred to as the Three Wise Men, or Three Kings, or Kings from the East or Orient, okay droogs let’s pump up the volume;

“We three kings of Orient are
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Guide us to thy perfect Light”.

The only one of the four Canonical gospels to mention the Magi, states that they came “from the East” to worship the Christ, “born King of the Jews.”

Though in the East, the “Magi” traditionally number twelve, and their identification as “Kings” in later Christian writings is probably linked to Psalms 72:11, “May all kings fall down before him”.  Which is rather a nice and convenient way and clause to then slip into the writings of the Bible, that makes it perfectly acceptable that “Kings” should rule “us” on “behalf” of thy “Lord”, – how dumber can you get, yet around a billion people love to play this game, – though I don’t blame them, as they have been lied to after all.

The Star of Ishtar from Al Manning’s “The Magic of New Ishtar Power”

All droogs have to know, as it was a long time ago and before baby Jesus was even invented; there were these bad boys and girls:

Bast
“What the hell you talking about, it’s the Virgin Mary and Child”, - well actually it’s Isis and baby Horus
Nergal
RA
Ishtar
Osiris
Marduk
Thoth as Ibis

To understand ancient “Star” symbolism, and let’s not forget the Sun is a star, our Sun is our major Star, that without it we’d all be brown bread, – is to understand the major religions.

In the ancient world they used one particular symbol for the Sun’s journey through the year.  And this is still a fundamental symbol used by the Babylonian Masonic Brotherhood whom too are of course part of the Catholic Church.  It symbolised both the Phoenician depictions of Barati and was on the shield of her British expression – Britannia, which found its way on that countries coinage.

The ancients took the circle of the zodiac [a Greek word meaning animal circle] and inserted a cross to mark the four seasons.

At the centre of the cross, they placed a symbol of the Sun.   Many of the pre-Christian deities were also said to have been born on December 25th merely because of this symbolism, which is between December 21st-22nd, we have the winter solstice when in the northern hemisphere, the Sun is at the lowest point of its power in the annual cycle.

The ancients see this as the Sun had symbolically ‘died’.  Then by December 25th, the Sun had demonstrably begun its symbolic journey back towards spring, then summer the peak period of its power.

Ra the Sun God

The ancients therefore said that the ‘Sun was born’ [the Sun of God, the Son God, which to the Egyptians is Ra], on December 25th.  The Christian Christmas the ‘Son was born’ is merely a renamed Pagan festival, as indeed are all the Christian festivals.

Easter is another one, as around March 25th, the old fixed date for Easter, the Sun enters the astrological sign of Aries the Ram or the Lamb, ready for the slaughter, for its this time the ancients used to sacrifice lambs because they believed this would appease and please the gods, most notably the “Sun God”, thus ensuring an abundant harvest and a jolly spring.

Tammuz

In ancient Babylon, Tammuz, the son of Queen Semiramis was said to have been ‘crucified’ with a lamb at his feet and his body was placed in a cave.

It was through the merger of Sun worship and Christianity that the day of worship was moved to Sun-day. Every day of the week in our Roman calendar is devoted to a different pagan deity:

Sun-day: the Sun
Mon-day: the Moon
Tues-day: Tiews (The Nordic equivalent of Mars)
Wednes-day: Woden (equivalent to Mercury)
Thurs-day: Thor (Equivalent to Jupiter)
Fri-day: Freya (Equivalent to Venus and Aphrodite)
Satur-day: Saturn
Because Constantine was a Sun worshiper, he moved all worship to Sunday, forbidding Christians and Jews to worship on the Sabbath. Today the church has been so indoctrinated into this practice that they refer to Sunday as the Sabbath day. This is but one more example of the corruptions of Babylon.

The corruptions of Christianity due to its merger with Sun worship are many, and few realise the extent of them. Many Christians speak of “Sun-day worship” and “Sun-day school,” not realising the origin and meaning of what it is they are saying. Even depictions of the Christ bear the marks of Sun worship.

Jesus – No, it’s Apollo
This above picture is easily mistaken as a painting of Christ, I always thought that’s who it must be, or some Saint. It is actually a painting of Apollo. The “solar halo,” also called a nimbus, was very common in depictions of deities that were related to the Sun and Sun worship.

Apollo

Due to Catholicism’s deep ties to Sun worship, symbols of the Sun are found in its abundance

This is a picture of the Pope carrying what is very obviously an image of the Sun. The sacrament of the Mass observed by Catholics is rife with Sun images. Even the wafer that is supposed to represent the body of Christ is in the shape of a solar disk. It is this which is held in the center of the image above.

These solar wafers were used in the observance of pagan rites. In contrast, at the Passover supper the Lord took unleavened bread and “broke” it, he tore it to pieces, and didn’t not carve it into neat little thin circles that represent the Sun and pass it out to all his buddies and say; “This is My body broken for you. Eat this in remembrance of Me.” Nor did they mark this observance on Sun-day.

That fish symbol you see on the back of many a “believers” car, had long been employed in pagan religions, for it was a symbol of Venus [yes that lil ol planet often referred to as the Morning Star, - Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, or just good ol Lucifer to others], as well as Bacchus. In The Two Babylons, Alexander Hyslop writes, “Icthus, or the Fish, was one of the names of Bacchus.” Bacchus was another name for Tammuz, the Sun-deity.

The worship of the fish deity is found in Scripture as we read of Dagon, the fish god of the Philistines.

The priests of Dagon wore fish shaped hats.

It is from this that the Catholics obtained the Mitre. Note that this priest of Dagon is sprinkling water, just like the Catholics do in their rituals.

Did you ever stop to question where the Catholic Church gets all of its costumes and symbols? The Catholics say they trace the lineage of the popes back to Peter, yet you show me where Peter can be found dressed in such a way.   Remember droogs, I’m an agnostic borderline atheist, so don’t give a toss what he wore, I’m here to help you seek the truth that’s all.

Regarding the appearance of the Ichthus symbol in Christianity, Alexander Hyslop writes: About the very time that the Bishop of Rome was invested with the pagan title of Pontifex, the Savior began to be called Ichthys, or “the Fish,” thereby identifying Him with Dagon, or the fish-god; and that, ever since, advancing step by step, as circumstances would permit, what has gone under the name of the worship of Christ, has just been the worship of that same Babylonian divinity, with all its rites and pomp and ceremonies, precisely as in ancient Babylon. – Source:The Two Babylons, page 370.

So why is it the Catholic church eats fish every Friday?

Where did this custom come from?

When the Constellation of the Bull [Taurus] was rising at the Equinox, folks were “washed in the blood of the bull” – The Egyptians also annually slew a sacred bull in atonement for the sins of the realm. The concept was that the blood of one god, or the symbol of that god, could cleanse the sins of many.  However, after two thousand or so years the spring equinox slipped from Taurus, the Bull, into Aries, The Ram, and this heralded the birth of yet another new god, this time emerging from the Israelites.

Aries taking the Bull by its horn and nose; the most sensative part of this beast of an animal and why the ‘ring’ it.

They distinguished themselves from the bull-worshippers by using the blood of the lamb as a sacred fluid and symbol. For Moses was leading his people,chosen with lamb’s blood, to a new religion. This was the new world age marked by Aries and thus a new god was required.

Let’s take a bucthers hook at the Romans, they worshiped Aphrodite Salacia.

Pisces began the lead position in the Zodiac around 2,000 years ago when the spring equinox heliacal rising slipped from Aries the Ram to Pisces the Fishes. However this was never a clear distinction, as Pisces is such a large constellation and its two fish reaching through the sky actually encompass the stars of Aries.

The coming of the age of Pisces, the “new world order”, was eagerly awaited as it was heralded by a triple conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in Pisces in the year 6 BCE and Virgil, in his Fourth Eclogue, announced it would be the return of the Golden Age. This conjunction was the astronomical highlight of the time, eagerly awaited and then watched and was later named, in Christian mythology, the Star of Bethlehem.
But the fish was an ancient symbol long before it was adopted by the new god. The Greeks incorporated the Fish as a sacred symbol through Aphrodite in her form as a fish-goddess called Aphrodite Salacia.

Aphrodite Salacia – “Fish anyone?”

Freya was the Scandinavian equivalent of Aphrodite.

Aphrodite Salacia was a fertility goddess. The worshipers of Aphrodite ate fish on Fridays and engaged in orgies, alright some it could be argued. Fish is considered an “aphrodisiac.”, any Oysters and Champagne come to mind, as does a line of Charlie, – from the name of ‘Aphrodite Salacia’ we also get the word “salacious,” which is defined as “intended to arouse people sexually”, as one can easily get a boner under such conditions.

Outside the oldest Roman Catholic church in Macon, Georgia, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. This shrine outside the church contains the Pyramid and All Seeing Eye of Freemasonry [note the sunburst behind the cross.] It includes the cross, which is a symbol of Tammuz, who is Nimrod reborn, the god of the Sun. This is signified also by the solar burst behind the Tau-cross. It has an image of Mary, who is modeled after Semiramis, the Queen of Heaven, the mother of Tammuz and wife of Nimrod.
“Macon” is the French word for Mason. Both Freemasonry and Roman Catholicism trace their roots back to Babylon. The city of Macon was laid out by its Masonic founders after the street design of ancient Babylon, a fact attested on the local Chamber of Commerce, but isn’t that what they say about the layout of Washington and London among many other cities.

“Owl! What Owl? I see no bloody Owl on the layout of Washington, you talk a load of Molochs, – must be some crazed conspiracy theorist!”

When one opens ones eyes, they can clearly see the incredible influence of the Babylonians within the Catholic church, as it’s found everywhere, though strange how a billion or so can’t?

The Rock that was Rolled from Jesus’ tomb

Rolling Stones

Jay Z’s Rocawear

Rockefeller, Rock n Roll, Roll Away the Stone, the Rolling Stones and even Rocawear comes to mind, as it’s said that a rock was rolled away from the cave’s entrance three days later, and his body had disappeared, but no I’m not talking about “Jesus”, this is the legend of Tammuz, as that’s what allegedly happened to them as well!!

You really couldn’t make this kind of shit up, you really couldn’t, well surely you wouldn’t be able to get away with such a farce, – could you?

Circa 400BC

The ancients also symbolised the Sun as a newborn baby in December, as a youth at Easter time and as an immensely powerful and strong man in the summer, whilst becoming an ageing old man losing his power in the autumn period, then an actual old man by the time of the winter solstice.

Old Father time present New Blood for the Spring

The modern depiction of ‘Old Father Time’ is a version of this event.  They also symbolised the Sun as having long golden hair, the ‘rays of the sun’ which got shorter as he lost his power in the months of autumn.  Now look again at the Old Testament story of ‘Samson’ = ‘Sam-sun’, he was incredibly strong and had long hair, but he lost his power when his hair was cut.

Samson bringing the Masonic pillars to the ground…

Samson about to lose his bacon from Delilah

His problems started when he entered the House of Delilah – the astrological ‘house’ of Virgo, the virgin, through which the Sun passes as autumn approaches, summoning his last burst of power, ‘Sam-the-Sun’, pushes down the two pillars, which are classic Masonic Brotherhood symbolism going back at least to ancient Egypt and are still used by the Freemasons today.  Samson is ‘Sam Sun’ – a symbolic story of the Sun’s annual cycle.  The Bibles version of Samson is purely fictitious there wasn’t really any such person.  In Hebrew, Samson = the ‘God of the Sun’.

To the orthodox Christian, Jesus is the only begotten Son of God who died so our Sins could be forgiven.  But you will find exactly the same claims for a stream of other ‘gods’ in the ancient world ‘long before’ the name of ‘Jesus’ was even heard of.  Indeed, we know his name wasn’t Jesus because that’s a Greek translation of a Hebrew name.  The term ‘Son of God’ would seem to originate at least as far back as the Aryan Gothic kings of Cilicia who took the title ‘Son of the Sun God’, a tradition adopted by the Pharaohs of Egypt.

‘Jesus’ to others he was claiming to be the King of the ‘Jews’ by right of his King David bloodline.

But did Jesus, Moses, Solomon and King David actually ever exist, anymore than that of Alice in Wonderland?  Apart from the texts in the bible, there is not much credible evidence they actually did, so if this is the case where perhaps did they spring from and more importantly were they not more metaphoric symbols, as it’s much easier for the ‘common man’ to be able relate to by simply putting a name to a person ‘in the image of man’, than it is to name and describe a celestial body such as the Sun, as a deity or God to man, and then count on non educated people to be expected to understand complex issues such as astrology and astronomy, it far more easier to put it across as a, metaphor disguised as ‘fable, tale and story’ with the ‘once upon a time there were three kings, a virgin mother and an immaculate birth as opposed to trying and explain Equinox’s, various dates, seasons, centres of the cross, solstices etc. etc. and besides they didn’t want the ‘low life scum’ to know the truth, in fact they still don’t want ‘us’ to know the truth!

And why many will scoff at this article, like as if I’m worried ;-)

“Can you see Alice?” – Said the Mad March Hare

Ah what a wonderful wonderland we live in, so with all this in mind my fellow droogs, have a lovely Eastern Star this Ēostre, though try not to go too mad!

# Here Comes Santa: Run Like Hell!

26NOV

St. Nicholas and his alter-ego Krampus (Wikimedia Commons)

Our passion for Christmas has become somewhat of a rite; and a tradition we’re accustomed to, because it seems magical. It’s a feel-good festival of visuals, tastes, smells, melodies and memories. We think we’re celebrating the birth of Jesus, but we were partying long before He arrived. We should have taken His message more seriously and stopped the fanfare of paganism, consumerism and humanism; but we didn’t. We created a nativity scene, told Him to lie there, while we merrily carried on with our pageantry of the winter solstice.

Many holiday activities in Great Britain and the United States have come from Germany’s alluring tales. And these tales can be traced back, not only to Rome, but also to Babylon and Baal-worship. That’s frightening, or should be, but so are Santa Claus and his dark alter ego, Dark Pete. Santa has many names, and so does Pete. Legend has it they travel together like the gods of old. It’s almost like the two represent an out-in-front image of light, fashioned like Apollo, the pagan god of the Sun; and a behind-the-scenes image of darkness, fashioned like the satyr of Bacchus, the pagan god of wine, merriment and ecstasy: Similar to the pope dressed in white, whilst behind the scenes the black pope really runs the show. And with all the name changing over the centuries, it’s hard to keep up with the gods; but replay the same story every year; and we’ll remember the fairy-tales.

God or Nick watches? (Wikimedia Commons, nasjonalbiblioteket from norway)

The sad truth is Santa Claus was fashioned out of Baal gods to replace God and Christ, because that’s what Satan does in his twisted tales, as he tried to do in heaven. His goal is to create “The Replacements”, so that every soul is found guilty of breaking the First Commandment, and going after Baal. Why are the gods of today considered Baal gods, just like those were, like in Rome, Greece, Egypt, and Babylon? The Hebrew word “Baalim” means “lords” (Judges 2:11). But because England was full of ruling lords, they chose not to translate this particular word in the English versions of the Bible. They didn’t translate “raca” either, which is the Hebrew word for “bow”, as we were instructed not to ask our brothers to bow to us. Baal can refer to a real person, or a graven image statue, back then, or today; because it’s any replacement of the “I AM” God, or Christ. And these replacements are all false, whether they be human or man-made. God and Christ hold this title and position above the people exclusively.

It’s no surprise that Santa Claus was designed to replace our Lord. Santa Claus is an anagram for Satan Lucas; and to Satanists, anagrams are important, because they hide the mysteries of the cult. So, Santa/Satan tries to replace God and His Feasts with his Christmas pagan festivities. He likes to be clever; and humans like to be occupied with trifles, fun and games. Santa isn’t generous; he’s greedy. He steals our money and time. He was created by theBabylonian market system to increase the wealth of the merchants and markets, already owned and operated by the rich and powerful. In a sense, Christmas tales were the original propaganda to create the holiday season we wrongfully celebrate today. For example, in 1939, Robert L. May wrote the story of Rudolph, the red nose reindeer, for Montgomery Ward department stores. In 1947, The Miracle of 34th Street endeared our hearts to a little-old man and his miracles, if we believed. The salutation “Merry Christmas” comes from A Christmas Carol written by Charles Dickens in 1843. Christmas-time propaganda didn’t start, or end, with these examples.

And Santa didn’t start out as Sanat, oops Satan [Sanat is another anagram used in the New Age occult]; he started as Saint Nicholas, fashioned after a 4th-century Catholic bishop in what is now modern-day Turkey, known for his gift-giving. The Roman Universal Church had no problem portraying one of its own as a replacement god, as that’s kind of its forté, like the pope calling himself the Holy Father – God. Why not a twist? On one hand, we have Saint Nicholas playing “Father Christmas” and on the other hand, we have jolly old St. Nick, with Old Nick being a well-established nickname for Satan. But Bishop Nicholas wasn’t as nice as we have come to believe. He appeared at the First Council of Nicaea, called by Emperor Constantine to develop a universal doctrine that would eventually usher in canon law. Nicholas was involved in portraying the Jews as “the children of the devil”. It was also Emperor Constantine who was instrumental in changing the day of rest from the Sabbath to Sunday, the day of the sun. In Rome, it would become illegal to observe the Sabbath, the day decreed by God. Do you know how many times it is mentioned in the Holy Bible to observe Father’s Sabbaths, not to mention it being His Eighth Heavenly Commandment of The Law? [Yet, man still decides on a Satan-inspired replacement day]. The Roman Universal Church used its hatred toward Jews as propaganda, to move all Israelites away from the Torah, the true Law Book; and the Covenant that Jesus came to re-instate for all the Houses of Israel, not just the House of Judah. But the Holy Roman Empire made up its own doctrine and laws in defiance of and contrary to God’s Law; even deeming Jesus’ birthday to be December 25, so that they could carry on honoring their sun god, whether they call it Nimrod, Bacchus, Apollo or Dasher and Dancer. Baal is as Baal does. Consecrating saints as gods, and creating special days for them and parading their relics are pagan activities, not to mention all the feasts to gluttonize in their honor, which increases the size of their garments.

In Revelation, Christ addresses this false doctrine when He addresses the church in Pergamos of modern-day Turkey, “I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, [even] where Satan’s seat [is]: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas [was] my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the followers of St. [Ni]-Claus (Yuletide)which thing I hate (Rev. 2:13-15).” Pergamos holds Satan’s seat, once located in Pergamos, before it moved to Rome. [But the seven churches mentioned in Revelation are a subject for another article.] The point is thatChrist hates Christmas and Baal doctrine.

Rome never gave up its paganism, but only increased it around the world. Essentially, the winter solstice festivals of Saturnalia and Brumalia carry on today under replacement names. Saturnalia is a festival to honor the sun god Saturn, once celebrated with banquets, gift-giving, partying, and a festival of lights and candles. Sound like Christmas? Brumalia is a festival honoring the sun god Bacchus, a month long celebration of wine and merriment. Sound like the holidays? Brumalia was influenced by the festival of Lenaia, which became known for its theatrical competitions. The theater continued. During medieval times, Christmas plays were acted out from scriptures and the liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church. These popular plays combined humor and religion; and St. Nicholas and his satyr-demon sidekick were reoccurring characters. Today, we have passion plays that reenact Jesus’ crucifixion over and over again. Pagan worship was and is about the “birth, death and rebirth” of the sun gods. Thus, the story of Jesus conveniently fits into the mix and He became included, instead of their Baalmania being excluded. They claim the church aligned Christian-beliefs with pagan-beliefs to convert the pagans; but the opposite has occurred, because Baal is booming in the big picture show, even in Hollywood.

The Holy (?) Roman Empire used this unification of beliefs for its gain and successful conquest of the masses. While Christmas and other winter festivals were banned in history, even at times by the Church, their usefulness as a lucrative venture for the dark side far outweighed any other impression of them. With today’s division of church and state, the state might as well go ahead and place a plaster of “Little Nicky” in the manger, because Jesus isn’t a graven-image statue anyway. Furthermore, He hates idolatry. And all those images of Him, aren’t Him; but are imaginations (Genesis 6:5). It shouldn’t matter what He looks like. Christ’s Message was and is the point, still. Satan never came up with a better one; and he can inspire men to erect phallic symbols all over the world, telling our Heavenly Father to “you know what”; but his efforts are pointless, because in the end all his insulting jabs and symbolism will be destroyed, even pagan Christmas rituals.

St. Nicholas wasn’t the only Catholic associated with Christmas. Although Christmas hymns appeared as early as the 4th century, St. Francis of Assisi was influential in traditionalizing them in the 13th century churches. He also popularized the nativity scene in Rome, which would later be produced in Germany in 1860. St. Boniface, a bishop assigned to Germany, has been credited with creating the fir Christmas tree, which is odd, because he cut down a pagan-oak tree. He pointed out that the fir’s shape pointed to Heaven and should be the people’s customary tree. But maybe he was privy into the “(ph)allucy” symbolism. Some might have missed the point to the switch. But no one should have missed this scripture about pagan tree-worship, “For the customs of the people [are] vain: for [one] cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not (Jeremiah 10:3-4).” This scripture gives a clue that decorating with evergreen trees and trimmings, wreaths, and garlands was an ancient Baal custom; and an abomination to God.

The Church can reason all it wants that the winter festivals are about Christ. We can too for that matter, because it’s so ingrained in us to wrongly equate the festivities with Christ, that we’d fight to keep them. We’d justify them to hang on to tradition, but we’re really just trying to hang on to being human. Satan has used the Christmas propaganda to program our minds to defy God; and we need to undo the programming and obey God, not Satan. All winter festivals, including this thing we call “Christmas” will not enter the Sabbath millennium, so why keep doing as the pagans do? Pagans celebrated the birth of their gods; covenanters weren’t meant to celebrate a birth date of a body named Jesus that Christ used. If we were, then a date would have been given, as well as a commandment to do so. Again, we were commanded to keep the Sabbaths; AND we were given markers for counting them such as the Hebrew Sabbatical Calendar known as Stonehenge. We were also given instructions in the Book of Numbers on how to count them. If we need a day to cherish the Lord, many weregiven in the form of Sabbaths. There is the weekly Sabbath to rest and spend time with Father; there is the Sabbath that should occur every seven years to release all debts; and there is Sabbath that should occur every 50 years to redistribute the wealth among the people.

Stonehenge is a Sabbatical Calendar, (Wikimedia Commons, “photo by Lachlan Fearnley”)

The gifts of Father’s Sabbaths are far more valuable than anything Satan Lucas can give. If people want razzle-dazzle, flying reindeer, candles, canes, firs, and treats, then Satan surely supplies them. If people want a quiet, calm love, inner joy, and peace, Father supplies them. Wisdom is a gift; but it’s a gift for the humble and faithful; it’s a joyful knowing of the Truth. Satan’s materialistic gifts come in shiny packages with big bows with no-lasting pleasure, demonstrated by children who tire of their toys before the snow melts. Deep down, they know they are getting a temporary fix to quell their own spiritual desire to know Truth, that they don’t get from their parents who tell them lies, like there is a Santa who knows them, when the truth is that it is our Heavenly Father Who does. Children shouldn’t be bribed and deceived into paganism with fictional lies; they should be taught righteousness. They shouldn’t be showered with gifts as if they are little gods; they should get what they need when they need it; and be taught the value of taking care of their things.

Again, humans like hoopla, even on their birthdays, such as the Egyptian Pharaoh in Gen. 40:20 and king Herod in Mark 6:21; but men of God curse theirs, like Jeremiah (Jer. 20:14) and Job (Job 3:1). They probably recognized their human bodies were the crosses their spirits had to bear on Earth. But for the Pharaoh and Herod, everybody sang, “Happy Baal-Raca to them”. It certainly makes one wonder if the pagan gods have human origins, instead of celestial ones – maybe legend just turned humans into fantasy gods, which would explain all the nonsense of affairs, wars, births, relations, charisma, beauty, hobbies and the collections of props surrounding their mysterious religions, or cults.

For instance, what if the biblical Nimrod, who was worshipped as a god, became one through legendary tales? It’s not hard for us to create legends; look at Marilyn Monroe; haven’t we made her into a goddess, over the years? As far as Nimrod goes, there is a story that his legs and arms were chopped off and sent out in the land of Shinar. This was punishment for his sacrificing little babies on the winter solstice. Then, we have the story of Nimrod the precursor of the god Dagon, who would crop up in the Roman Catholic Church in some fishy ways. This Nimrod was “dismembered” and Egyptians thought his body parts were thrown into the Nile River. Because a fish supposedly ate them, Nimrod morphed into a half-fish, half-man god. [Don’t laugh. We were way more primitive in our thinking back then. Yet, today we still believe in fairy-tales, like how buildings fall and buses are bombed.] Next, suppose an official robe of some sort was made to symbolize this legend – let’s say a robe with a fish-head hood. Then, we were told that whoever wore this robe was the personification or embodiment of this Nimrod-Dagon character-god. Well, not all of us tried it on for size; but some might if it were fashionable to do so, like Papa Nimrod or Father Christmas. Paganism is highly ritualistic with great emphasis put on superstition. That’s why this fish-head mitre hat holds importance, or eating fish on Fridays or eating 12 courses of it for Christmas. Then there’s the Irish legend of the Salmon of Wisdom.

Krampus Taking the Babies (it must be around sacrifice time)

In the Biblical sense, Nimrod represents Babylon: “And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the Earth. He was a mighty hunter before the “I AM”: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the “I AM”. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar (Gen. 10:8-10).”

“Then the Prophet prophesied greatly of Wrath and of WOE to come  upon Mizraim’s king and people, and all that made Cush (Ethiopia) their home. Weak and poor shall it be. Three kings shall come from the East:  Nimrod (Babylon), Madai (Medes) and Elam (Persia) to break down the sacred beast (Teia Tephi 2:5).” Tephi was Zedekiah’s daughter who escaped Jerusalem after it fell to Babylon. Jeremiah took her, the tender twig, to Ireland and planted her there along with Jacob’s Pillar Stone and The Ark of The Covenant. She would write prophecy concerning Rome, specifically pointing out what Jeremiah said, “Baal shall be broken, yet he shall rise as the sun, red and gold is his rising… the wealth of many ‘waters’ hath swollen the hide of the bull.” She does indicate Rome is the wolf that mourns not, but that her altars would be cast down (Teia Tephi 4:2). Plus, many scholars believe Dagon represents Nimrod of Babylon.

The pagan Nimrod also plays Osiris and Horus. Their props are wings, reindeer and fir trees, often featured with them in ancient artwork. Nimrod, who is a great “deer” hunter, flies through the air during the great winter hunt. In Scandinavian countries, these props are Beiwe’s, a female goddess of fertility who flies through the air in a chariot made with reindeer bones, ushering back the greenery for their feed. Does this sound like the origins of Santa’s slaying Christ? Later, we’d be given the “celestial” names of the reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixon, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. Donner and Blitzen (originally Dunder and Blixem) are German for thunder and lighting. Why Rudolph with his nose so bright? Before Satan played Rudolph to guide “The slay”, he played a satyr with a bright red tongue, known as Krampus or Knecht Ruprecht; and he played Dark Pete with bright red lips. Maybe for newcomers like those in Britain and the United States, a demonic goat was too hard to swallow; but we’d welcome cute reindeer, little elves, flashy lights and decked trees.

Simon Magus, Demons and The Birth of Wine on the Miegeville’s Gate of the Saint Sernin Abbey in Toulouse, France (Pierre Selim, Wikimedia Commons) Deut. 32:33 Their wine [is] the poison of dragons (Rev. 12:9, 13, 17), and the cruel venom of vipers (Matthew chapters 3:7; 12:34; 23:33).

Looking at the markers, it’s part of the same dragon-tale of lies. And from the markers, it looks as though Nimrod could have played Bacchus, with this character having markers to Simon Pater Magus, the false apostle Simon Pater-Peter. If PATER said he was the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to lure Christians, it’s not a far-fetched idea he claimed to be Zeus, Apollo or even Bacchus. He probably imitated Satan, being many different entities to many different people, kind of like when mediums channel him. To one, he is Ra; and to another, he goes “Out on a Limb”. These are all clues Satan is insane and suffers from multiple-personality disorder.

Bacchus, god of wine, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Wikimedia Commons). This is a similar image to the Simon Magus one above.

Baal priests were said to be able to make wine overnight, like Bacchus did. Remember, he was the god of winery, merriment, theatre and ecstasy. His wine, music and dance were said to free his followers. If one thinks about it, wine does lower inhibitions; but it lowers one’s spiritual ability to stay connected to Father. In a drunken state, a person becomes very human, with human emotions like sadness and anger. And in a state of blackout, a person can be totally operated by Satan, completely unaware of his actions or words and later unable to remember what he/she did. This state can also be induced by other methods, like when Beyoncé becomes Sasha. It’s very destructive to the soul. Being spiritually awake means being very aware of one’s actions and words; and being aware of the good and bad within, then following the good. Being drunk makes one stupid, clumsy and delusional, not to mention sick. Unfortunately, many intelligent and spiritual people get drunk to forget they’re in hell, or escape the fact they haven’t found the “answers” in their mind-boggling search for wisdom. Wisdom isn’t found at the bottom of a bottle, which only serves to take away any intelligence they thought they had in the first place. This is probably why God uses the allegory of “wine and drunkenness” with the Whore of Babylon. Look at this Bacchus character and his props. He is associated with the summer grapevine, winter ivy, pines, bulls and goats (and figs). Grapes make wine; pines preserve wine; bull horns are used to drink it; and goatskins used to hold it. Ivy is like an alter ego of the grapevine that grows and flowers in winter, yet bares no fruit. It’s usually wrapped around Bacchus thyrsus, a long wand, which is topped with a pine-cone, yet another point to make. It’s a wand and a weapon. If Bacchus wasn’t a real person transformed into a god, then the practice or “creation of wine” became one – and one to keep people drunk and delusional. By the way, the Church says it uses ivy in its décor, because its heart-shape form represents Christ coming to Earth. What? Heart-shapes represent Cupid, but that’s another saintly character. Interestingly, Bacchus has his own sidekick, who is none other than a satyr with an erect penis. Shocking, isn’t it? Someone is marking his territory.

Bacchus and his satyr, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Wikimedia Commons)

Tree-worship is a marker of paganism. Bacchus, like Nimrod, is associated with tree worship that would make its way to the North, with a god named Thor and Yuletide customs. In more modern times, the Christmas tree was popularized in Germany; making its way into the British monarchy by marriage. King George III (Mad King George) married Germany’s Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who was also the Electress of Hanover in the Holy (?) Roman Empire. Thus, Queen Victoria was familiar with the Christmas tree from her kin. Victoria married Germany’s Prince Albert, and the custom gained popularity. Then in 1848, a portrait of the Queen’s Christmas tree at Windsor Castle was published in the Illustrated London News; and later made its way to the U.S. in Godey’s Lady’s Book. This was a major step in Christmas propaganda, but it wasn’t the only route, as German settlers also brought it to the states, as well as the song “O Tannenbaum” which means fir tree, not Christmas tree.

Tree Worship, (Wikimedia Commons)

December the 25th would emerge as the accepted day of Jesus’ birthday, from one sect to another. Not surprising, it’s Bacchus and a few other sun gods’ birthday. In particular, the god known as Deus Sol Invictus or “the undefeated sun god” birthday was celebrated on December 25, and promoted as an empire-wide holiday in Rome. But Jesus wasn’t singing, “You say it’s your birthday…”– never mind what He wants, which is for everyone to stop getting drunk with the Whore, wining and dining with her. Interestingly, there is a Mosaic in Mausoleum M in the pre-4th-century necropolis under St Peter’s Basilica in Rome of the Sol Invictus. Some say it represents Christ. Really, like ivy? If anyone was truly buried in this Basilica, it was probably Simon Pater Magus. Just saying.

# A second look at Biblical Inerrancy

Freethinking Me

Thursday, August 7, 2014

IN A previous article entitled, Illusions of Biblical Inerrancy, I pointed out some reasons why I no longer believed that the Bible is without error. I expanded on an illustration popularized by biblical scholar, Bart Ehrman, showing how the accounts of the resurrection in the four gospels differed in their details. My conclusion then was that because of these discrepancies, it is difficult for me to think of the Bible as free from errors.

A reader, whom I shall call Kevin (not his real name), wrote in and said:

It seems that you easily find discrepancies on the MINUTEST details of their respective accounts, which is not the central message or truth that they want to record. They wrote to prove that there was such a thing as a RESURRECTION that happened. They or I are not interested on the number of women who were there.

Let me give you and illustration. Supposed I sent you to Zamboanga in September 2013 to cover the Zamboanga war with 3 other reporters and the 4 of you sent the following report of the same incident that happened at the same time and same location:

Reporter 1: An army from 8 IB fired his Armalite rifle to the MNLF and killed 2 of them.

Report 2: A Soldier from the Philippine Marine fired his AK 47 and killed 3 MNLF rebels.

Report 4: A Policeman from Zamboanga Police killed 4 MNLF rebels with his .45 pistol

Report 4: A government trooper by the name of Juan de La Cruz fired his guns and I am still verifying how many were dead.

Apparently, the 4 of you were giving me different versions of the report. BUT WILL THAT MAKE YOU DENY THAT THERE WAS REALLY A WAR IN ZAMBOANGA? I sent you to Zamboanga to tell us that there is a WAR going on there and how it happened. You do not have to be accurate on who fired , what gun and how many were hit.

In the case of these 4 GOSPELS, the CENTRAL ISSUE is the RESURRECTION which the 4 of them recorded.

You mean that because they do not corroborate with each other, then it is false or hoax? If 4 liars will corroborate to tell a lie, it is still A LIE. Even if what they wrote are perfectly the same. Equally correct is when these 4 gospel writers intended to write a hoax, they should have written it perfectly the same.

Here is my response:

You seem to think that my opinion of the gospel is that it’s a DELIBERATE hoax. That is not my view at all.

The main point of my article was not to show that the resurrection story is untrue. The main point was to highlight the fact that the discrepancies make it impossible to claim that the Bible is inerrant.

Going back to your example of the 4 reporters, you may not be interested in who fired and how many were hit but surely, not all of us can be correct. If I say that the Philippine army fired first, and reporter 2 said that the MILF fired first, we cannot both be correct at the same time. One of us has to be wrong.

Now, if one of us is wrong, you cannot say that the 4 accounts that we have are without error — which is what Christians (at least, some factions) claim, not only for the 4 gospels but for the entire Bible.

Unlike your war example, the gospels are not firsthand accounts of the eyewitnesses themselves. It is generally accepted among reputable Bible scholars, Christian ones included, that the earliest gospel, Mark, was written more than 30 years after the event.

Matthew and Luke followed 10 or 20 years later, and John followed another 10 years later.
So if we were to rewrite your example in these terms, it would go like this: It is now September 2043 (30 years after the 2013 Zamboanga War). A writer named Mark comes to interview me, knowing that I was an eyewitness. So I tell him about what happened to the best of my ability and memory.

Mark would possibly have other sources as well, and he uses all this material to piece together his story of the Zamboanga War. So now we have the Zamboanga War according to Mark.

Ten years later, two other writers named Matthew and Luke also hear stories about the Zamboanga War. They’ve read Mark’s book, but some parts do not exactly jive with the stories they have heard from other sources. So they want to set the record straight and write their own versions, but they copy heavily from Mark since he was the first to ever publish the complete story anyway. Needless to say, some details don’t match.

Ten or twenty years later, another writer from some other part of the world, named John, comes up with his own retelling of the Zamboanga war. He never saw the other 3 guys books but decided to write his own account based on his own sources, knowledge and interpretation of the events.

So there you have it — 4 books about the Zamboanga War which are not deliberate hoaxes, but not entirely accurate as well. You may say, well the point was, there WAS a war. And yes, I will grant you that. But that is an entirely different point from the one I’m trying to make.

I am not saying that because the details don’t match, then we ought to doubt that there was ever a war at all. I am saying that because the details don’t match, you cannot claim that the accounts are without error. I hope this, at least, is clear.

Regarding your claim that there was indeed a resurrection, let me tackle that next week.

# Illusions of biblical inerrancy

Freethinking Me

Friday, February 21, 2014

I GREW up believing that the Bible was the inspired and inerrant Word of God. I believed in a literal six-day creation, the talking snake, the Tower of Babel, Noah’s Ark, Sodom and Gomorrah, Samson’s wondrous strength, Elijah flying up to the heavens in a blazing chariot of fire, and of course, Jesus and all the miracles he and his disciples performed.

I remember one Bible study session when I was a young teen. The pastor declared that the scribes were so careful in copying the manuscripts that they had to purify themselves by taking a bath every time they wrote a word or a sentence. If a scribe made a mistake, the whole scroll would be burned and he would have to start all over again.

So we were supposed to have very reliable copies of the original biblical texts, without errors or discrepancies.

It was later in my thirties when I began to seriously question the Bible’s authority. The verse often quoted to support inerrancy is 2 Timothy 3:16: “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” But this was written before everything had been compiled into what we now call the New Testament. What “scripture” then, did Paul have in mind when he wrote those words?

I began to look at how the Biblical canon (the official list of inspired and authoritative books) was developed. When I asked about it, pastors told me that early church fathers were guided by the Holy Spirit to decide which book made the cut and which book didn’t, and for a time, I accepted that.

However, as I read more and more about church history, I realized that the canon was not decided in a moment of revelation, nor was it declared by a voice in the heavens. There was much discussion, debates, arguments, bullying, politics, and in the end it all came down to a matter of votes.

In fact, few people realize that even up to this day, the biblical canon is still in dispute. A Catholic Bible (like the New American Bible) contains 73 books in all while the Protestant Bible (virtually all other versions with the most popular being King James, NIV, NRSV, and the like) contains only 66 books.

Of course, growing up as a Protestant, I simply ignored the Catholic version because I thought it was plain wrong. Life is simple when you just pick a side and don’t have to think so much.

Unfortunately for me, I was not wired that way. I had to know more, because this book was supposed to be the one driving my life. It was supposed to be my guide to life on earth and even beyond. I had to know if I could really trust it.

The more I read and learned, the more that trust withered.

I delved into serious biblical scholarship and learned that no serious biblical scholar (whether Christian or not) would claim that biblical texts are without errors or discrepancies. In fact, there are thousands of discrepancies. This is common knowledge in biblical scholarship. Most errors are minor, however, and consist of spelling or grammatical mistakes. Yet, some are downright irreconcilable. For example, one only needs to read the resurrection accounts in the four gospels and see that there are glaring inconsistencies.

Mark 16 gives the story of three women who came to the tomb and see the stone already rolled back. They went inside and saw a young man dressed in a white robe who spoke to them. They fled and told no one about it because they were afraid.

Matthew 28 tells us that there were two women who came to the tomb, apparently still closed, until a great earthquake came and rolled the stone away.

Then they saw an angel descend from heaven which frightened the living daylights out of the guards. The angel talked to them outside the tomb. They ran from the tomb and Jesus met them and told them to give a message to his “brothers.”

Luke 24 does not specify how many women there were. Similar to the narrative of Mark, they arrive only to find the stone rolled away, then went in and found not one, but two shining beings.

The women went and told the disciples about it but no one believed them.

John 20 has Mary Magdalene all alone. When she discovers the stone rolled away, she ran immediately to Peter and another unnamed disciple (presumably John) to report the matter because she thought someone had took the body. Both disciples ran to the empty tomb and saw only the linens. Mary later sees Jesus but doesn’t recognize him, thinking he was the gardener.

Now, if these stories are supposed to be true, how come they do not corroborate each other?

Why didn’t God “inspire” all four writers to be a little more consistent in their details? The logical conclusion is that some of these narratives contain errors. If they contain errors, you can hardly call them inerrant. Then how can we know which parts are true and which aren’t? How can we know if ANY of it is true at all?

Aside from discrepant narratives, there are many other problems. We have none (yes, none!) of the original manuscripts of the Bible. What we have are copies of copies of copies of copies and there are numerous errors from one copy to another. There are verses which appear in some copies of the text, but not in others — which suggests that they were either added in or taken out.

The last part of Mark 16 is a perfect example of this and is even documented in most Bibles if you bother to read the footnotes.

There are entire books which were not written by the supposed authors. For example, none of the gospels were written by the people whose names they bear. Some letters of Paul were most likely not written by Paul, like 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, Colossians and Ephesians.

Again, these are not new claims. Bible scholars have known this for decades.

World-renowned New Testament scholar and author, Bart D. Ehrman, details many of these in his book, “Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why.” I suggest you look for a copy of that if you are interested in these things. In the concluding chapter, he offers this thought: “I came to think that my earlier views of inspiration were not only irrelevant, they were probably wrong.

For the only reason (I came to think) for God to inspire the Bible would be so that his people would have his actual words; but if he really wanted to have his actual words, surely he would have miraculously preserved those words, just as he had miraculously inspired them in the first place. Given the circumstance that he didn’t preserve the words, the conclusion seemed inescapable to me that he hadn’t gone to the trouble of inspiring them.”

Revelation 13:7 says the Antichrist will have “authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.” Protocol 5:11 says the Illuminati plan to “absorb all the state forces of the world and to form a super-government.”

Revelation 13:8 says that “inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast.” Protocol 15:20 brags “they will acknowledge the autocracy of our ruler with a devotion bordering on ‘apotheosis'” [glorification as a god]. He “will be the real pope of the universe, the patriarch of the international church.” (17:4)

For Satan to rule Earth autocratically, he must not only consolidate governments and currencies, but belief systems. But how could he unite something so diverse as religions?

THE PLAN

The long-term strategy: (1) splinter a religion into sects on the “divide and conquer” principle; (2) assault the religion’s foundations, creating doubts among believers; (3) finally, herd the remnants together with other religions – i.e., ecumenism.

Let’s see how this played out in Christianity. Protocol 17:5 says of churches: “we shall fight against them by criticism calculated to produce schism.” Over centuries, Christianity has been splintered into increasingly smaller sects. For example, the Jehovah’s Witnesses were founded by a Freemason, Charles Taze Russell.

To plant doubts in believers, Darwin’s theory of evolution was introduced as a “scientific” alternative to creation by God. Protocols 2:3 flaunts “the successes we arranged for Darwinism.”

Attacks on the Bible achieved what Protocol 17:2 terms “the complete wrecking of that Christian religion.” The Rockefellers funded seminaries that questioned the Gospel, most notoriously the Union Theological Seminary. In the late 19th century, Union Theological professor Charles Briggs introduced “Higher Criticism,” in America claiming the Bible was error-ridden.

In 1922, Harry Emerson Fosdick, left, gave a landmark sermon which cast doubt on the Bible being God’s Word, the Virgin Birth, the Second Coming, and Christ’s death as atonement for sins. He declared those holding these beliefs “intolerant.”

His sermon sparked outrage, and Fosdick was forced to resign. However, he was immediately hired as pastor of Riverside Church – attended and built by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. for $4 million. Rockefeller paid for 130,000 copies of Fosdick’s sermon to be printed and distributed to ministers. Fosdick’s brother Raymond was president of the Rockefeller Foundation. The views expressed by theologians like Briggs and Fosdick were called “Modernism,” which included denying Christ’s divinity, miracles and resurrection. Modernism was not a quibbling over some gray area of theology; it was total repudiation of Christianity’s major tenets. With Rockefeller funding, it permeated seminaries and churches. Recently Modernism has gone further; the Jesus Seminar (financial backers unpublicized) declared over 80 percent of sayings attributed to Jesus weren’t authentic. The Da Vinci Code – this century’s best-selling novel, thought by John Coleman to be a Tavistock creation – claimed Jesus wasn’t resurrected and married Mary Magdalene. Shortly after the film version’s release, a Discovery Channel documentary claimed a tomb had been found containing the bones of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. ECUMENISM AND SOCIAL GOSPEL UNDERMINING FAITH Consolidation of churches required organizations. The Rockefellers funded the National Council of Churches. John Foster Dulles was chosen to spearhead the ecumenism drive. Dulles was a Rockefeller in-law, chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation trustees, a founding CFR member who helped draft the UN Charter (which never mentions God.) In 1942, Dulles chaired a 30-denomination meeting which called for “a world government of delegated powers.” Not content with unifying America’s churches, Dulles traveled to Amsterdam in 1948 to attend the founding conference of the World Council of Churches. Director of research for this foundation-funded conference was John Bennett – president of Union Theological and a CFR member. Among today’s ecumenical traps: the Tony Blair Faith Foundation. The former British prime minister – a consummate insider – said he wanted to “promote respect, friendship and understanding between the major religious faiths” since “globalization pushes us ever closer.” But even with structures for consolidation, the question remained: how to motivate churches to unite. Since denominations often disagree on theology, the strategy was to encourage collaboration where they did agree: values (e.g., helping the poor and sick.) This materialized in an action-based program, “the Social Gospel” (socialism masked as religion.) Walter Rauschenbusch, trained at Rockefeller-funded Rochester Theological Seminary, became “Father of the Social Gospel,” declaring that “the only power that can make socialism succeed, if it is established, is religion.” Perhaps the most notorious “Social Gospel” pusher: Rockefeller-backed Reverend Harry F. Ward, who long taught at Union Theological. Ward, the ACLU’s first chairman, was called by labor leader Samuel Gompers “the most ardent pro-Bolshevik cleric in this country.” Ward helped found the Methodist Federation for Social Action, which advised Christians to downplay the Gospel and fight for things like social justice, better labor conditions, and “world peace” – i.e., the goals Marxists proclaimed. Missionary work was targeted. In 1930, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. funded the “Laymen’s Foreign Missions Inquiry,” which recommended missionaries downplay Christian doctrines and ally with other religions in doing good works. Although most denominations were critical of the report, former missionary Pearl Buck praised it in the media. Subsequently her novel The Good Earth received the Nobel Prize. This “unity through action” strategy continues today. The Tony Blair Faith Foundation’s original website had a “Social Action Projects” page which asked viewers to sign a declaration stating: “I commit to working together with people of all faiths to fight against disease and poverty.” Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life (over 30 million sold) is America’s current Social Gospel point man. In 2008, backed by a$2 million Rupert Murdoch donation, Warren launched the PEACE Coalition. Time magazine headlined it: “RICK WARREN GOES GLOBAL.” Warren said the coalition’s goal was “to mobilize 1 billion Christians worldwide.”

Warren, who is a CFR member, gave the invocation at Obama’s inauguration, and was dubbed “America’s pastor” by CNN.  He’s anointed, but by who?

CATHOLICS

The Illuminati haven’t forgotten Catholicism. Protocol 17:3: “When the time comes finally to destroy the papal court…we shall penetrate to its very bowels.”

Like other churches, Catholics have recently seen major ecumenical developments, such as: the signing of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification by Lutheran and Catholic representatives (1999); dialogue with Eastern Orthodox churches, resulting in the Common Declaration of Pope Benedict XVI and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I (2006); an unprecedented Catholic-Muslim summit at the Vatican (2008); and visits of Pope Benedict XVI to Israel and to the Great Synagogue of Rome (2009).

And Catholicism has experienced its own “social action” movement – comparable to the tactics of Harry F. Ward and Rick Warren – as in the doctrine of liberation theology, which was prominent in Latin America beginning in the 1950s and 60s, where the Gospel took a back seat to fighting poverty and social injustice via Marxist precepts.

Protocols 17:2: “as to other religions we shall have still less difficulty in dealing with them, but it would be premature to speak of this now.”

ONE WORLD RELIGION

The final mechanism for one-world religion might be Project Blue Beam. According to Serge Monast, satellite-projected holograms in the sky (the “image of the beast” predicted by the Bible), will be tailored to religious populations in Earth’s different regions.

To induce worship, the Antichrist will not initially appear as a tyrant, but as a “savior.” To save us from what? Probably from all the chaos the satanic Illuminati will have created: wars ignited by false flags, famines from artificial food shortages, plagues from viruses synthesized in laboratories, HAARP-generated storms and earthquakes, and perhaps even a fake “Blue Beam” alien attack, simulated by holograms of spaceships. Having contrived these disasters, it will easy for him to stop them. By turning off HAARP, for example, he will appear to duplicate the feat of Jesus in quelling the storm on the Sea of Galilee. These high-tech counterfeit “miracles” will allow him to be accepted as God, as Christ returned.

But any “saving” will be short-lived. Once enthroned in Jerusalem (the end goal of Zionism), Satan will use his absolute dictatorship to unleash his greatest cruelties on the world. Worshiping the Antichrist will undoubtedly include human sacrifices – a practice consistently associated with Satan worship, from child sacrifices offered to the demonic Baal in the Old Testament, to today’s mock human sacrifices carried out by America’s elite at Bohemian Grove.

People of faith should stand united; not in their one-world religion but against the Illuminati.

Jesus warned: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”

Protocol 11:4: “The goyim are a flock of sheep, and we are their wolves. And you know what happens when the wolves get hold of the flock.”

James Perloff is author of several books; his latest is Truth Is a Lonely Warrior.

First Comment from Dan:
No article on this subject can be complete without including the role of the last six Popes in this New World Order business plan. (I left out the one that only lived 33 days in 1978).   Since 1958 each Pope has rejected the primacy of Roman Catholicism and embraced the ecumenical policy called ‘interfaith dialog’.

I know most modern people think that’s about ‘brotherly love’, peace and understanding, but the fact remains that the religions and denominations contradict one another. When a pope says as John Paul II did that ‘all religions worship the same God’ he was coming from the pantheist paradigm of the United Nations.  His stated goal “to place the (Catholic) Church at the heart of a new religious alliance that would bring together Jews, Muslims and Christians in a great armada”.   Any religious person knows that every one of these religions would have to reduced to cultural meaninglessness to become one same thing.  Strip the religions to “unity” and what you get is pantheism – ie, “I am he and you are me and we are we and we are all together” like the Beatles song.  When I don’t know God from a bowl of cat food, or the cat, or a goldfish, or the trees – that’s pantheism.

Those in North America and Europe who assume the Vatican Church is gradually fading away don’t factor in the massive rise in converts in lower Africa and Southeast Asia. These very populations are also streaming into North America and parts of Europe.  The unspoken fact is that the Illuminati cult in control of the Vatican since 1958 have been deliberately chasing Europeans away, because we can figure out the New Church is counterfeit.  The “emerging Church” of new converts is along the lines of pantheist perception and “charismatic” expression. (the “false fire” of mass hypnotism and demonic obsession).

As the Jaques Attali article yesterday noted,  NWO Globalism was designed to created economic and other refugees who must perpetually be moving from zone to zone in pursuit of a living wage.   The “native” populations – currently indigenous Europeans and Europeans that settled North America have already dropped below the necessary birth rate to maintain their majority in their own countries – due to abortion as birth control and temporary self-sterilization with birth control pills or shots.

# EUROPEAN SATANISM, A BEGINNER’S GUIDE

By Seymour Light

## Damascus 1840

What Henry Makow called  ‘the most famous instance of Satanic Jewish human ritual sacrifice’ took place in Damascus:

The salient points about the Damascus Affair are 1. a prominent Italian Capuchin monk, father Tommaso was ritually slaughtered (and his blood drained) by prominent Cabalist Jews. 2. They confessed and led authorities to his identifiable remains and clothing.

Freud’s Part in Our Satanic Possession

Shlomo Freud, a member of the Illuminati Bnai Brith, played a key role in mankind’s induction into the Cabala sex cult. Psychiatry may have a subversive hidden agenda; hardly a surprise given its origins.

Freud declined an invitation to travel saying, “a wealthy woman client might get well during my absence.”

“My mood depends very much on my earnings. Money is laughing gas for me.”

by Henry Makow Ph.D
(from Aug. 29, 2010)

Sigmund Shlomo Freud’s career illustrates how a satanic cult, the Illuminati, cast its morbid spell over humanity.

The Illuminati sprung out of the Sabbatean Jewish heresy of the 17th century.

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was a Sabbatean who sold his perverted satanist beliefs to the world in the guise of science and medicine. The Illuminati-controlled media and education system hailed him as a great prophet.

The Sabbateans were a sex cult that indulged in every sexual perversion imaginable as a way of spitting in God’s eye. This is what satanists do: incest, pedophilia, orgies, homosexuality, everything that is unnatural and unhealthy.

Freud and his B’nai Brith (Illuminati) backers convinced the world that sexual desire (libido) is the primary motivation of human life, and that sexual satisfaction is the universal panacea. He taught that repressing sexual urges is harmful and results in neuroses. He taught that males experience castration anxiety and females suffer penis envy.

As an overture to incest and pedophilia, he taught that children have sexual feelings for their opposite-sexed parents and feel hostility to their same-sex parent. At the extreme, his “Oedipus Complex” states that a boy subconsciously wants to kill his father and rape his mother.

The philosopher Karl Popper said Freudian psychoanalysis is as devoid of scientific method as palm reading. Freud’s Oedipus Complex “has absolutely no scientific basis.”

Typical of a Satanist, Freud denied man’s spiritual dimension, our hunger for God exemplified by our spiritual ideals like harmony, love, truth and beauty.

The Kabbalah teaches that God has no characteristics and is unknowable.

Influenced by the Kabbalah, Freud taught that God is merely the projection of imaginary father figure designed to make us repress our sexual urges.

According to Wikipedia, Freud “is considered one of the most prominent thinkers of the first half of the 20th century, in terms of originality and intellectual influence.”

LEARNING FROM A SATANIST

After joining the Masonic Jewish B’nai Brith in 1897, Freud’s stillborn career began a meteoric rise.

Psychology Professor David Bakan describes Freudian psychoanalysis as derivative of the Lurianic Kabbalah and the Zohar. Lurianic Kabbalah is a 2nd century Gnostic formulation which was picked up by Jewish heretic Sabbatai Zevi. [Sigmund Freud and The Jewish Mystical Tradition, (Beacon Press, Boston 1958)]

Freud discussed Kabbalah with a rabbi Chaim Bloch in 1920. The rabbi told Prof. Bakan that the two men argued when Freud proposed that Moses had been an Egyptian pharaoh, not a Jew.

Freud stormed off, leaving the rabbi alone in his study. It was then that Bloch saw books on the shelves which identified Freud as a follower of Sabbatai Zevi, (the Sabbatean founder.)

Freud thanked the members of B’nai Brith lodge for their support. Indeed, several members of the lodge provided the initiating cadre who founded the quackery of psychoanalysis.

According to E. Michael Jones, Freud’s Psychoanalytical Association was structured as a secret society. (Libido Dominandi, p. 122) Presumably, it had the same secret goals as the B’nai Brith, to subvert, exploit and enslave.

Freud’s letters revealed he regarded his clients as suckers.

He compared himself to a lion in a cartoon he saw. The lion is checking his watch at feeding time and asks, “where are my Negroes?” Freud said his patients were his “Negroes”. (Jones p. 116)

Freud declined an invitation to travel saying, “a wealthy woman client might get well during my absence.”

“My mood depends very much on my earnings. Money is laughing gas for me,” he wrote. (116)

Called the “talking cure,” psychoanalysis was a scam. As Michael Jones writes, for a fee, rich people received absolution for their guilty pleasures and permission to proceed.

Jones believes psychoanalysis was based on the Illuminati initiatory ritual and is a form of mind control.

“Both were based on having the patient or adept give in-depth, quasi-confessional “examinations of conscience” during which they told the Illuminist controller or psychotherapist details of their personal lives which could later be used against them. Both Illuminism and psychoanalysis ended up as covert forms of psychic control, whereby the controller learned of the adepts dominant passion and manipulated him accordingly.” (p.127)

The bottom line is that psychiatrists, whether they know it or not, are part of this satanic secret society. The true Illuminati goal is to make people sick and take their money. This would explain why psychiatrists are putting millions of people, including children, on drugs. See also: “The Soviet Art of Brainwashing.”

The secret society model may apply to the medical profession as a whole, as well as to other professions.

Freud was a precursor of Alfred Kinsey, the pervert who killed himself trying to masturbate. Kinsey filled his famous Rockefeller-sponsored report with the behavior patterns of his fellow homosexuals. Thus, he convinced Americans that promiscuity and deviance were the norm.

Similarly Freud had an affair with his wife’s sister, Minna Bernays, who got pregnant. His psychiatric theories about incest and sex were attempts to exonerate himself. Ironically, Adam Weishaupt, the Illuminati organizer, also got his sister-in-law pregnant.

Freud went through a period where he was enamored by the salutary properties of cocaine. When some friends became addicted, he supposedly gave it up. However Wikipedia reports: “Some critics have suggested that most of Freud’s psychoanalytical theory was a byproduct of his cocaine use.”

CONCLUSION

Sigmund Freud illustrates that modern culture is controlled by a satanic cult, to degrade and enslave mankind. We have been duped by Satanists in the guise of science and medicine.

Satanists promote sexual excess and deviance to enslave humanity. “Anything goes,” is the satanist watchword. Freud gave society permission to go hog wild.

Free sex tramples marriage and family, institutions necessary for social stability and health. It debases every human relationship to the lowest common denominator, sex. It presents sex and “relationships” as the single gateway to personal development and happiness.

For the past 200 years, progress and enlightenment have been measured in terms of increased sexual license, until today we genuflect at the obscene antics of obese, naked “gay pride” paraders.

This is “progress” in satanic terms. We are the victims of a diabolical multi-generational conspiracy which grows more brazen every day.

# Savile’s Travels: How Sir Jimmy Was Fingered as Peter Sutcliffe’s Accomplice

21st Century WireIt’s not that big of a stretch, and you’d have to be in avoidance mode not to look into it.There seemed to be an unnatural synergy between them, a correlation that appears to have escaped the authorities and the media, until now.

It’s known that Broadmoor’s esteemed patron, Sir Jimmy Savile, had befriended one Peter Sutcliffe, known as “The Yorkshire Ripper”, who was moved to the secure mental hospital in Berkshire following his mass murdering spree.

Jim’ll Fix it: Serial killer Peter Sutcliffe meeting with Frank Bruno, arranged by… Sir Jimmy Savile.

Sir Jim even fixed a meet-and-greet between the Ripper and boxing champ Frank Bruno at Broadmoor in 1991, when Big Frank came to open a boxing gym inside.

Pals Jim and Pete shared a passion for predatory, sadistic and violent sex practices. Nurses at Broadmoor can testify to hearing Sir Jim booming with laughter at the Ripper’s jokes coming from inside Sutcliffe’s cell.

But how did we miss this one: multiple murder crime scenes put Sutcliffe uncomfortably close to Savile at multiple locations in Leeds at the time of the murders – a realisation which places Sir Jimmy squarely in the frame with the Yorkshire Ripper.

According to the Sun’s Professor David Wilson, one of Britain’s top experts on serial killers, police must now investigate whether or not the pair’s unusual bond developed before Sutcliffe was caught. The Sun article explains:

“Another crime expert even thinks BBC star Savile could have turned killer himself in his craving for more and more perverted thrills. And the family of Sutcliffe’s first victim are demanding that cops question the killer, now 66, to find out if Savile was involved in any of the 13 Ripper murders or helped cover them up.

The newspapers pushing the envelope on the Savile-Sutcliffe connection this past weekend were the Sunday Sport, the Sun and others – with broadsheets staying mostly clear of the that angle.

There is also the assertion by the Sunday Sport that Jimmy Savile may be connected with the murder of Crimewatch’s Jill Dando, of whom it’s been said was threatening to expose Savile’s paedophile activities nationally at the time. If there is a link here, then the media should also revisit the show trial of Barry George, the mentally ill patsy who was originally charged with Dando’s killing, but was eventually acquitted for the murder in 2008.

Savile also boasted of his use of ­violence and links to IRA gangsters when filmed during Louis Theroux’s infamous BBC documentary.

More interestingly, however, is that the Sunday Sport and Sun’s revelations appear almost verbatim from an Oct 11th interview on the UK Column Live show – where award-winning filmmaker Bill Maloney of Pie and Mash Films had  previously laid out out a damning case detailing the clear connection between Jimmy Savile and Peter Sutcliffe.

Maloney explains, “After the release of our documentary Sun Sea & Satan in 2008, a victim from Haut de la Garenne came forward with the names of Jimmy Savile and Wilfred Brambles (of Steptoe & Son). Later, in September 2012, a month before I did the UK Column Live interview with Brian Gerrish, I realized that there is horrendous information that the National press are not disclosing.”

Filmmaker Bill Maloney has been somewhat of a trailblazer in the arena of child abuse activism in the UK, through his personal crusade against chronic institutional child sex abuse throughout the UK, but most his work had fallen on deaf ears when it came to the mainstream media, until now.

Filmmaker Bill Maloney: knew about Savile long before the mainstream media and the BBC would admit it.

“We’re at the point now where the mainstream media is beginning to admit that the child abuse and paedophilia issue is not just about one man Jimmy Savile, but admitting to a wider systematic problem, because they’ve been forced into it by the alternative media such as ourselves”, says Maloney.

Among other revelations and connections, the Sunrevealed that Sutcliffe victim Irene Richardson was killed in 1977 – only yards from where Jimmy Savile demanded oral sex from his paperboy, and another murder victim was knifed by the Ripper in front of Savile’s other Leeds home at the time.

Allegations first surfaced following the infamous ITV documentary where Savile sexually abused inmates at hospitals – to which Sir Jim had his own set of keys. This is crucial, as both Savile and Sutcliffe, it seems, shared their dark enthusiasm for necrophilia. So investigators might consider here, the uglier possibility that Sir Jim could be involved in multiple murders, perhaps even whilst on duty, roaming the halls of the infirmary, looking for – or worse, creating, a freshly deceased, and still ‘warm’  fix. It’s safe to say that the mainstream media ignored much of the research carried out by the alternative media researchers like Bill Maloney who looked into crime scenes like Haut de la Garenne, and has not properly explored the links between serial predators like Savile and known serial killers like Sutcliffe.

Thus far, it’s the ‘tabloid press’ – namely the Mirror, Express, Sun, Daily Star, and Sunday Sport, who have taken on the more risky angles of this story, whereas editors at the Guardian, The Independent, Telegraph and Times have mostly stayed clear of dirty aspects of Savile like necrophilia, murder, and his affection for the Yorkshire Ripper. Perhaps they feel it’s too grim, and something reserved for the gutter press.

What is clear now, however, is that this is officially a national emergency which requires ‘all hands on deck’ from a press and media point of view.

But we have an even bigger theme now in play with the Savile-Sutcliffe link. If Savile is eventually linked to Sutcliffe or any other Savile murders turn up, then anyone who covered for Jimmy – including the BBC, would, in theory, be guilty, in theory, of aiding and abetting a mass murderer.

Everyone over the years it seems, the police, the press – even the great BBC, all covered for Jimmy Savile. Why?  Because he was a ‘fixer’. ….

# Former archbishop lambasts David Cameron

Government is aiding and abetting secularisation of UK and leaving Christians feeling persecuted, says Lord Carey

A former archbishop of Canterbury has attacked David Cameron for doing more than any other recent political leader to feed Christian anxieties that they are part of a persecuted minority.

Lord Carey said it was a bit rich to hear Mr Cameron tell religious leaders to face down aggressive secularisation when the coalition seemed to be aiding and abetting such practices.

In an article for the Daily Mail, he wrote: “I like David Cameron and believe he is genuinely sincere in his desire to make Britain a generous nation where we care for one another and where people of faith may exercise their beliefs fully.

“But it was a bit rich to hear that the prime minister has told religious leaders that they should ‘stand up and oppose aggressive secularisation’ when it seems that his government is aiding and abetting this aggression every step of the way.

“At his pre-Easter Downing Street reception for faith leaders, he said that he supported Christians’ right to practise their faith. Yet many Christians doubt his sincerity. According to a new ComRes poll, more than two-thirds of Christians feel that they are part of a persecuted minority. Their fears may be exaggerated because few in the UK are actually persecuted, but the prime minister has done more than any other recent political leader to feed these anxieties.

“He seems to have forgotten, in spite of his oft-repeated support for the right of Christians to wear the cross, that lawyers acting for the coalition argued only months ago in the Strasbourg court that those sacked for wearing a cross against their employer’s wishes should simply get another job.”

Lord Carey said he was very suspicious that behind plans for gay marriage “there lurks an aggressive secularist and relativist approach towards an institution that has glued society”.

He added: “The danger I believe that the government is courting with its approach both to marriage and religious freedom is the alienation of a large minority of people who only a few years ago would have been considered pillars of society.”

STAYING SANE IN AN INSANE WORLD
“The foundation of the Christian family is the sacrament of matrimony, the spring of all domestic and public morals. The anti-Christian societies [i.e. Illuminati] are opposed to the principle of home. When they have destroyed the hearth, the morality of society will perish.”  Benjamin Disraeli (Lothair, 1870)

by Henry Makow Ph.D,

Most people don’t understand the scale and success of the “Conspiracy.”

The “Conspiracy” is the Establishment now. The “New World Order” is not something in the future. The Illuminati were refreshed in 1776 and immediately gained the upper hand in Europe and America. Using Freemasonry as vehicle, they grew in power throughout the 19th century and have been in charge since 1913.

Freedom and democracy are fascades used to control the masses. They are window dressing to hide our true Masters and their agenda.

Our Masters began as a Jewish heresy called “Sabbatean-Frankists” who impersonated every religion and nationality to gain world power. They are the Iluminati. Their bankers finagled ownership of the British money supply in 1694 and are expanding this credit monopoly into a monopoly over human life, i.e. Communism.

They are supplanting God and redefining reality according to their self-interest and perversity. When Satanists make the rules, they invert right and wrong, truth and falsehood, good and evil. For example, our leaders are mostly traitors to the nation state.

Wars are designed to kill or degrade the goyim. The Illuminati shaped modern history and culture with this end in mind.They control the corporations, politicians, military, Intelligence agencies, education and the all-important mass media. Our “leaders” are controlled through blackmail.

Society is a willing accomplice in its gradual self-destruction. In general, the goyim unconsciously know what  to do to get a piece of the scam.  Organized Jewry has been agents of the banker “internationalist” agenda for a long time. With their help, Western nations have been flooded by immigrants. Whites are becoming a minority. The Illuminati goal is to re-engineer and induct humanity into their satanic cult (Cabalism) by destroying “every collective [human] identity,” including race, religion, nation and family.

FREEMASONRY

Freemasonry is Cabalism for gentiles, It’s a way for the goyim to get a share of the banker scam. It behaves like Judaism does, networking and discriminating against outsiders. Dr. Isaac Wise wrote: “Freemasonry is a Jewish Institution whose history, degrees, charges, passwords and explanations are Jewish from  beginning to end.”

Freemasonry, like Cabalism, is Satanism. So we are not in doubt, the Masonic archives were seized in Budapest in an anti-Jewish reaction in 1919. Christians read that at the B’nai Brith Conference in 1897, the Grand Master said:

“We must spread the spirit of revolt  among the workers. It is they whom we shall send to the barricades, seeing that their desires are never satisfied, for we have need of their discontent to ruin Christian civilization and hasten anarchy. It is necessary that the moment arrive when the Christians shall come themselves and implore the Jews to take control.”
(Cecile Tormay, “An Outlaw’s Diary”)

Clearly, Organized Jewry and their Masonic goy lackeys are Illuminati tools. Banning criticism of Jews and Israel is another way of saying you cannot name or criticize your Masters. Ordinary Jews are kept in the dark, better to be duped and serve as camoflage.

(City logo. 666. If this were not intentional, someone would have noticed and changed it.)

SOCIETY IS A CONSPIRACY AGAINST ITS MEMBERS

None of this is new to many of you. We live in a cognitive dissonance. The media is constantly telling us we’re free while at the same time censoring the truth and diverting us with nonsense. We have to keep repeating the truth like a mantra. Masonic monuments dot our cities. The Ottawa city logo is 666. It is everywhere– on all street signs, city vehicles and buses!

Illuminati symbols are on major corporations. Movies and TV purvey obscenity. Society has been thoroughly sexualized. Schools teach children to experiment with homosexuality. Governments launch terror attacks on their own citizens with the complicity of the mass media. Increasingly, society risks going insane.

In its Gadarene drive to decadence, society has alienated its sane minority. What does this tiny minority do? Is Civil Disobedience the answer?

The Illuminati are “banking” on the slaves loving their slavery.
We have no choice but to be bystanders in a satanic freakshow until conditions get so bad that even the slaves revolt. Is the novel “1984” prophetic?

In the meantime, we can set a positive example in our personal lives, and help others to understand that our political and social institutions have lost moral legitimacy.  That is why the Illuminati need to create a police state, to rule by force rather than by right. -

James said (May 30, 2013):

Another great article re: the Illuminati slave masters, concise and to the point.

I find almost all the people I know, family members included, are completely unaware of anything you wrote about.

And what is alarming to me is they do not want to know. They seem to be complacent in their ignorance. Almost arrogant about it.

I live just south of you in West Central Minnesota. Today I had conversations with two different men both in the local farming business.
I broached the subject of GMO seeds and crops with both of them, one a farmer, the other operates the local farmers cooperative selling seeds and other agriculture supplies.

When I conversed with the farmer and asked him why he and other farmers in our area plant GMO corn. He answered by rubbing his forefinger and thumb together indicating is was the money. He had no other comment even when I told him that GMO seeds were being banned in many European and Asian countries. My comments diidn’t even prompt a question or a comment.

When I asked the cooperative manager how much of his business entailed the sale of GMO corn and soy bean seeds, he replied all of the farmers in the area plant them. He knew of none that used the “old fashioned” kind. He also made no comment when I remarked about that GMO seeds were being banned.

These men are “brain dead”, ignorant , or they are stupid. They don’t care to even be informed.
They are the ‘slaves’ you write about. And they really don’t know it. They do not have eyes that see reality. They really live in the “matrix”, and don’t know it.

Thank you for being “there”. Don’t go away.

Excellent and timely article. Over here in the UK, Ofsted, the regulating body that checks the teaching standards in schools and other public services, recently recommended that children in primary schools be taught about -Pornography!!…and the dangers associated with it. They made a serious case for it-that it be incorporated in all schools as part of their Personal, social, health and education syllabuses.

What sickened me more was how a number of spineless parents were all too eager to renounce their parental rights and duty and agree to children being exposed to pornography, all the better to inform that on the subject. Schools are a breeding ground for their satanic agenda, Henry, and I can attest to that. Recently, my daughter who is 7 years old, started her school swimming lessons. She was forced to strip naked in front of her entire class, boys and girls alike, as all the changing rooms were being occupied by other pupils from different schools!!! 30 7 year old boys and girls being indoctrinated to strip naked in front of each other and their teachers, without a question raised. Needless to say, my wife put a stop to that. All this from a top Church of England school with supposedly high christian values!!!!!

On another note, the government is pushing through the Communictions Data Bill, otherwise known as the snoop charter. It will give them access to peoples emails/phone calls and internet records, all in the name of preventing islamic extremism. Oooops, better watch what I say! At least I can lead them to your excellent website Henry!!!

The satanists are truly in full swing.

“When Satanists Make the Rules”

Paddy Chayevsky (author of 1975 screenplay, “Network”) , said nearly 40 years ago, “How do you preserve yourself in a world that doesn’t mean much anymore?”

Back when most Americans thought “Illuminati” was an Italian pasta, the movie said out loud that “there is no America, there is no democracy. There’s only IBM, ITT, and AT&T, Dupont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon. Those ARE the nations of the world today”.

“It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet…. am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale?”

Chayevsky also showed how everyone in the TV network succumbed through their own ethical weaknesses. The head of the news department was courageous enough to lose his career rather than embrace new socially irresponsible programming for ratings, but he was easily seduced by a young TV programmer, leaving his wife with massive emotional damage to his family. The young TV programming director stole his job – which was her real goal.

That’s how Freemasonry works. Advancement eventually requires betrayal of friends and family – at first to ‘prove’ trustworthiness to the Order, but it becomes a brotherhood of secrets of sins. The moral compass is turned upside down, it becomes a ‘virtue’ to betray “the profane” – the suckers.
Freemasonry is one of many incarnations of cult of Cain.

Church father Hippolytus exposed the secret of such secret societies in the ‘Refutation of all Heresies’ that their initiations drew naive members into greater ‘degrees’ of perverted and criminal acts to make them accomplices in deeds that were not only embarrassing if revealed, but carried severe criminal penalties if made public. The members were therefore bound forever to the ‘brotherhood’. Consider why criminal sexuality is so prevalent among politicians and religious authorities. Blackmail and extortion are Satanist’s specialty.
Network – “We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies”

JG said (May 29, 2013):

Kissinger well knows that what the world perceives as truth is an Illuminati Manufactured Lie. There is no turning back now, the path to world destruction is on cruise control. The populations of the western nations have fallen to these Cabalists because they loved their lives of “ease and luxury” too much and were willing to cut any kind of deal with the devil to keep that life.

# Drones for Christ

Source: Sojourners
Wednesday, June 19, 2013

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY in Lynchburg, Va., was founded by televangelist Jerry Falwell. Its publications carry the slogan “Training Champions for Christ since 1971.” Some of those champions are now being trained to pilot armed drones, and others to pilot more traditional aircraft, in U.S. wars. For Christ.

Liberty bills itself as “one of America’s top military-friendly schools.” It trains chaplains for the various branches of the military. And it trains pilots in its School of Aeronautics (SOA)—pilots who go up in planes and drone pilots who sit behind desks wearing pilot suits. The SOA, with more than 600 students, is not seen on campus, as it has recently moved to a building adjacent to Lynchburg Regional Airport.

Liberty’s campus looks new and attractive, large enough for some 12,000 students, swarming with blue campus buses, and heavy on sports facilities for the Liberty Flames. A campus bookstore prominently displays Resilient Warriors, a book by Associate Vice President for Military Outreach Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Robert F. Dees. There’s new construction everywhere you look: a $50 million library, a baseball stadium, new dorms, a tiny year-round artificial ski slope on the top of a hill. In fact, Liberty is sitting on more than$1 billion in net assets.

The major source of Liberty’s money is online education. There are some 60,000 Liberty students you don’t see on campus, because they study via the internet. They also make Liberty the largest university in Virginia, the fourth largest online university anywhere, and the largest Christian university in the world.

More than 23,000 online students are in the military—twice as many as students who live on campus. Liberty offers extra financial support to veterans and those on active duty, allowing them to be credited for knowledge learned in the military and to study online from a war zone.

Liberty has been turning out “Christ-centered aviators” for a decade. In fall 2011, Liberty added a concentration in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS, aka drones), making it one of the first handful of schools to do this. Now at least 14 universities and colleges in the U.S. have permits from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly drones, and many institutions, including community colleges, offer drone training.

If one chooses to concentrate studies on piloting drones, the load will include a half dozen courses on “intelligence.” Liberty students can also pick up a minor in strategic intelligence and take courses in terrorism and counterterrorism. (Liberty’s school of government brags that Newt Gingrich helped develop its course on “American exceptionalism.”)

Currently, the vast percentage of drone pilots are training for war, but that is widely expected to change in the next few years. Congress has instructed the FAA to integrate drones into U.S. domestic airspace by September 2015.

Liberty’s School of Aeronautics has six faculty members, five of whom have spent 15 to 30 years in the military—four in the Air Force, one in the Navy. Dave Young, dean of the SOA, spent 29 years in the Air Force and retired as a brigadier general. Last summer, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell appointed Young to serve on the Virginia Aviation Board.

“[Drones] are going to be a viable part of the aviation industry,” Young said in a Liberty Journal article last summer. “It offers a grand opportunity for employment during a time when college graduates are entering a highly competitive job market.” He also acknowledged that the technology could be misused. “Our mission is to produce graduates who are not only skilled, but who are going to go out in the world as strong Christians,” Young said.

John Marselus, SOA associate dean, concurred. “We want to have graduates serving the Lord in this area of aviation,” he said.

I exchanged emails with Young about Liberty’s drone program. He described it as a four-year degree program in Unmanned Aerial Systems and said that it includes “flying UAS vehicles in an authorized and controlled environment.” But, he added, “the focus on the program is not only on actual drone operations, but the command and control aspect, management of resources, and the various missions that UAS are capable of supporting.”

The Virginia legislature recently became the first in the nation to impose a moratorium on drone use—lasting two years. That might have been a concern for Liberty. But before he would sign the bill, Gov. McDonnell made some exceptions to the drone ban, including emphasizing quite strongly that educational drone programs, including Liberty’s, would not be affected.

“We very much appreciate the governor’s continuing support of the development of the Unmanned Aerial Systems presence in the Commonwealth,” Young wrote to me. “Particularly as it is a rather contentious issue due to the lack of understanding concerning the missions UAS can perform that aid the public at a much reduced cost.”

I asked Young about drones’ most common use today, namely war fighting. “Is that kind of drone use Christian?” I asked.

“I can only offer my perspective as a Christian,” he replied. “UAS are like any other aerial vehicle that can be used for a variety of missions including law enforcement, aerial surveillance, search and rescue, and crop spraying as well as for military reasons. As a former military combat aviator, I believe that UAS can be employed just like a manned aircraft and that there should not be a distinction between the two.”

A brochure promoting the Liberty School of Aeronautics features a photo of  Dan McCready, First Lieutenant USAF, who is quoted, “Since I was very young, I’ve dreamed about becoming a pilot in the U.S. Air Force. Liberty’s aviation program gave me the opportunity to make my dream a reality, helping me to realize that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Tim Carentz obtained his undergraduate degree from Liberty, works for the Air Force now, and is pursuing a master’s in divinity from Liberty. Carentz told me he could not speak for the Air Force, but as a Liberty student and a pastor he believes “it’s biblical to have a national pride.”

“I believe authorities are put in place with the approval of God,” Carentz assured me. “If he didn’t want them there, he could easily remove them.”

He also discussed how good members of the military can be and how there are opportunities for evangelism.

“If there were no Christians in the military, how would they instill love and discipline?” he said. “There are people pulled right from the ghetto who have nothing and who come into the military. And maybe their first supervisor is a Christian, and he takes them to the foot of the cross and leads them to Christianity, and they share that with their family, and you save generations.”

At Liberty, the military is considered a tool for Christian missionaries. But what, I asked, about killing people with drones?

“I can understand why some support [them], and I can understand why others don’t support [them]. Our job is to pray,” said Carentz, “and to understand that things will continue to get worse until Christ returns.”

Richard Emery obtained a bachelor’s in finance from Liberty and went to Afghanistan with the Air Force. But Emery left the military in 2010. He told me he was troubled by what he saw as a pursuit of vengeance rather than justice.

“I’ve thought about this a lot, how we’re supposed to be forgiving and yet fight wars against enemies,” he said. “We blame Osama bin Laden for what happened on Sept. 11; one time I was in Japan, and they had a picture of him in a urinal. You were supposed to pee on his face. I thought, ‘I don’t feel right about this.’ I’m not going after some kind of vendetta. I just want to bring justice. You’re supposed to be forgiving, but you’re supposed to do your job. I’m not going over there holding a grudge against Osama bin Laden. All the people we’re killing, you know, I’d like to see them get saved.”

“I have no problem taking another person’s life,” said Emery, “if it would promote peace and liberty and the interest of the country we’re in. I have no problem giving my life for it. I’d end up going to heaven, so it doesn’t really bother me. But it becomes a problem when I start to doubt what we’re there for.”

Emery proposed the nuclear bombing of Japan as a model for how Afghanistan should be handled. “It was painful, but we dropped a couple of atomic weapons and they quit fighting, and now Japan is one of our closest allies.”

Emery expressed general disagreement with President Obama on “moral issues” until I asked about drones, and then he praised him.

“They’re cheaper. They’re effective. They’re tiny,” he said. “The difference between an F-15 and a drone is just the cost. If a baby is killed by a drone or an F-15 or a gun, the problem is with the intelligence, not with the drone.”

Emery, however, was clear on one thing. He doesn’t want drones patrolling our own skies or listening in on our cell phone conversations. In the view of this graduate, and others at Liberty, that wouldn’t be a godly thing to do.

# Insider Explains that Satanist are Not all Alike

They share the beliefs of their Traditional brethren,

but also employ extreme physical, sexual and

ritual abuse up to and including ritual human sacrifice.”

by Elijah

I was raised in the Midwest during the 1960’s and ’70’s in a middle class American home. My dad was an avowed atheist. My mother was a Methodist who forced me to go to church, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School etc. Being a typical kid, church occasionally scared me half to death, but usually bored me to tears. I quit going as soon as I was old enough that she could no longer force me to go.

There was, however, a spiritual curiosity within me that made me begin to search for the truth – whatever that was. A co-worker and I became friends and over time he began to share his spiritual beliefs to me. As it turns out, he was an occultist – specifically a Rosicrucian. He began teaching me and opened my eyes to a spiritual universe that I did not even know existed. Eventually, I left the occult, but I became acquainted with its practices and beliefs.

One of the biggest mistakes that Christians make is that they lump all occult practitioners into a single group – calling them either “witches”, Devil Worshipers” or Satanists. This is a colossal mistake. There are literally thousands of occult brotherhoods and sisterhoods – called within their respective circles as “traditions”.
(Left, University of Missouri recognizes pagan, wiccan holidays.)

Each Tradition has very specific beliefs, customs, rituals, practices etc. For example, Celtic witchcraft and Wicca hold very similar beliefs. They are both “White Magick” and seek to harness natural forces (IE Elemental Spirits) to do good (or at least what they see as good.) Their motto is “Harm none, do as ye will”. They worship “The Goddess” – a feminine deity that is sort of nondescript – she is often referred to as Diana, The Moon Goddess, or can also be seen as Mother Earth. Her male (and slightly subordinate) counterpart is Horus, or “The Horned One”. Wiccans can be the lady down the street, your local librarian or the girl (or boy) next door. They are generally harmless to anyone except themselves and those whom they deceive into joining them.

Generally, these traditions despise Satanists, seeing themselves as morally superior. Major “un-holy” days include Wolpurgis Night (April 30) Beltane (May 1st) Samhain (pronounced sah’-wen October 31, later changed to Halloween) and Yule (December 21st) – these “un-holy”days are shared by Druids, as well as many Traditional and Non-Traditional Satanists)

Satanists have literally a legion of sub groups, but they fall into one of two general categories: Traditional and Non-Traditional.

A traditional Satanist does not necessarily worship Lucifer as a deity, but rather they are uber hedonists. They worship their own desires and have few if any moral limitations on how they go about fulfilling their lusts. Their rituals often employ a nude (and beautiful) woman lying horizontally on a table as an altar. Sexual gratification, and material wealth are often their end goals. While they do have the potential for violence, their practices are by far and away much more benign than their Non-Traditional counterparts. A textbook example of a Traditional Satanist is Anton Levey and his First Church of  Satan. This “church” was quite popular with the Hollywood A list elite from the late ’50’s thru the 70’s.

Non-Traditional Satanists are truly bad guys. They share all of the beliefs of their Traditional brethren, but also employ extreme physical, sexual and ritual abuse up to and including ritual human sacrifice. Pedophilia is commonplace and women are kept within the various groups as “breeders” specifically for the purpose of providing infants and children as sexual play toys and sacrificial victims.

These folks often will use sex magick and ritual murder to summon demons to do their bidding and are almost without limit in power. Many, many public figures and world leaders are Non-Traditional Satanists. Michael Aquino’s Temple of Set is a prime example of the Non-Traditional Satanist. In fact, eye witnesses have claimed to have seen members of the US Congress and other ranking public officials actually kneel before him.

Luciferians are a whole other group. Their beliefs are essentially that Lucifer is the good “god” and Jesus usurped Lucifer’s rightful place as heir to the Throne of Yahovah – (called “God the Father” in church speak). Most of the Illuminati are Luciferians and are the originators of the concept of “The End Justifies the Means”. They consider their family blood lines to be superior to the rest of humanity, marrying only among other Illuminati families. In their minds, they are the Elite, superior to the entire human race in all ways, and the only ones qualified to rule because of their superior education, breeding, intellect, etc.

Contrary to popular myth, they are not Jewish, although some of them claim to be. Their blood lines are actually Europe’s “Black Nobility”, tracing their family trees back thru Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt all the way back to Ancient Babylon, where it all started with Fallen Angels breeding with human women (See Genesis 6).

There is some scientific evidence to support their belief that their family members do differ genetically from the rest of humanity. This group is mentioned in Revelation 2, Verse 9 as being members of “The Synagogue of Satan”. Side note: The Synagogue of Satan is a reference to where these people’s loyalties lie. However, there was a literal place called the Seat of Satan in Pergamos, which Hitler had deconstructed piece by piece and brought to Germany and reassembled. This is the location from which many of his more significant speeches were given.

Some luciferians are quite moral, ethical people, living by a very strict set of rules. These rules, however, are not generally the same morals shared by the rest of humanity. It is interesting to note, however, that one of their moral imperatives is that they warn the masses of their plans and intentions prior to their implementation. If the masses are “too stupid” or “too decadent” to recognize it, they are seen to “deserve” whatever destruction befalls them as a result.

And while their honor code seems to allow for all manner of lies, deceit, deception to be perpetrated upon the masses, they do not break their word among themselves. Luciferians have a calendar all of their own, and quite frankly, I don’t know much about it except to say that they do place some emphasis on the dates I listed above, but I believe they have other days of significance as well.

There are literally thousands of other occult type practices found everywhere from Native American culture to the Caribbean (and ultimately West African) black arts generally lumped together under the generalized heading of Voodoo, to occult practices originating in Asia.
