I hesitate to mention some of this information, but think it needs to be known. We are told that the idea of secret societies should be “repugnant to the people of a free society”, according to former president John F. Kennedy. Are we under such influence today?
We should be aware that nearly all politicians in high positions in our land have for decades been members of the secretive Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). This organization has been largely responsible for the major decisions that our government makes, and they are often not in the best interest of the American people, but for the benefit of the elite bankers who have been in control.
Another secret organization is Freemasonry, which accomplishes much good for humanity, but has close ties to both the Illuminati and to Mormonism. When I was a child I grew up in the First Baptist Church here in Nevada. Older folks who used to attend the building at Main and Hunter streets will recall that the beautiful stained glass windows there lining the sanctuary featured the prime symbols of freemasonry, the compass and square!
Those seem to have disappeared with the move to the new building on the north side of town, but few are aware that there is still one stained glass window in the vestibule of the new building that has a masonic symbol. It portrays a handshake that is supposed to indicate that travelers are welcome here. But, it’s no ordinary handshake – it illustrates one of five or more secret masonic handshakes that allow fellow masons to immediately recognize each other.
This is the organization that used to require members at each level to swear to secrecy what they were told, or to agree to have their “throat slit from ear to ear and their body buried beneath the sands of the sea”. It’s the same organization whose highest official of freemasonry in North America, Albert Pike, stated in his book, “deceives its members at every level.”
It’s the organization that declares heresy at every masonic funeral when it says of the deceased, “our brother_______has lived his life in such a manner as to make himself fit to enter that great celestial lodge in the sky”. That is Satan’s greatest lie – no person comes to the Father except through Jesus Christ. You cannot live your life in any such manner as to make yourself okay with God, it doesn’t work that way.
It is interesting that there was only one distinction that historically separated Southern Baptists from other Baptist groups, and that was their defense of slavery! Fortunately, that distinction has fallen away through the years and they adhere to solid Biblical principles now. We are blessed to have a preacher who focuses on Jesus, and that is how it should be.
