I took a look through the book that Fritz Springmeier mentioned in the interview with Alex Jones, linked below, entitled, “Be Wise as Serpents.”
Something very dark has clearly has happened to the seminaries and the churches in America. There is so much deception and so many denominations which seem to emphasize everything but the greatest two commandments, that it does seem likely that something methodical and sinister has gone on.
Here is some of the evidence that secret societies, especially the Freemasons (but I saw that Springmeier also mentions the Skull and Bones) put their members in positions of leadership in many of the seminaries and churches.
What we need is a major rethink to get back to what the Bible really says and to what the Holy Spirit is really saying — which most ‘Christian’ professors and pastors will actually discourage.
BE WISE AS SERPENTS
The following is list is made up of Freemasons who are in Prominant positions in charge of Christian Seminaries or schools, or are teachers. This is not a complete list, but is given in the hopes it will provide the reader for a feel for how much influence the Masonic lodge has even on Christian education.
The largest of any Protestant denomination in the U.S. are the Southern Baptists. How widespread is Freemasonry in this largest denomination? 40% of the Southern Baptist ministers are Masons.19 Not only are large numbers of Baptist ministers Freemasons, but the various Baptist denominational leaderships are heavily Masonic. Some examples are…
The Alabama Grand Lodge reported in 1889 that out of its 7,950 Freemasons in the state 483 were Christian ministers.7 The New York Grand Lodge report of 1890 gives us the breakdown of the 703 Christian clergymen that were N.Y. Masonic members: Methodist(288), Episcopalian(146), Baptist(112), Presbyterian(59), Universalist(31), Congregationalist(21), Dutch Reformed(13), Christian(13), Lutheran(11), Jewish(7), Unitarian(l), Reform Jew(1).8
Fritz also talks a lot about Billy Graham, who is allegedly a 33rd degree Freemason. Billy was given prominence in the press and was friends with all of the Presidents except apparently Nixon. Jesus said:
“Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” Luke 6:26
Billy has walked in universal appreciation, largely because he was nice no matter what. He not only wouldn’t confront sin, but he actually made excuses for Bill Clinton’s extramarital affairs, saying that we don’t understand the pressure Bill has as President.
Rev. Graham caused some controversy in 1998, when he seemed too quick to forgive Mr. Clinton just weeks after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke. “I forgive him because I know the frailty of human nature and I know how hard it is,” Graham told NBC’s “Today Show, adding that Clinton “has such a tremendous personality, that I think the ladies just go wild over him.” (source)
And then Billy laughed: “ha, ha, ha.” I’ve have that clip on tape, and wrote about it many years ago in my email list.
But perhaps the key detrimental tradition that Billy made popular was saying a prayer and then coming forward to become Christians. Probably a large percentage of Americans have done that, and I actually do believe that many were truly born-again that way. The problem is that most will then go back to living the way they were, thinking the same thoughts, and won’t be true disciples of Christ. Because Billy’s goal was to get converts, which he called souls. But most of those souls will have their names removed from the Book of Life according to Rev. 3:1-6, unless they truly abide in Christ according to what the Bible really says: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?
We need a major rethink to throw out the doctrines of demons introduced by secret society members and others who were not led by the Holy Spirit. This is what I’ve tried to do on this site.
