94 y/o Nazi case is a ploy by Globalists to condemn Israel

94 year old Oskar Groening and former Nazi SS officer dubbed the "bookkeeper of Auschwitz"

Globalization and the "Cold War" have given countless survivors of the Jewish Holocaust and Evangelical (Bible-believing) Christians like Richard Wurmbrand reason to speak out against the World Council of Churches (originally agreed upon in 1937)[1], the United Kingdom, United Nations, Germany and the United States.

Ironically, the Mass Media wants to use 94 year old former Nazi SS officer Oskar Groening's conviction as grounds to prosecute the State of Israel for war crimes in the International Criminal Court in The Hague. The U.S. and its allies are playing both sides of the fence...On one hand, they say they support the State of Israel's right to exist and defend itself, but then the same governments and their Hashemite Dynasty Royal Saudi Family partners give billions of dollars to Hamas to rebuild the Gaza Strip to fire thousands of rockets at Israel.

God's holy people, Israel, represent John the Evangelist's vision of the "woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars [the 12 tribes of Israel] in Revelation chapter 12 represent the Hebrew people's persecution. And today's grafted Evangelical (Bible-believing) Christians represent Jesus Christ's true universal church and body of believers—not the "Virgin Mary" global counterfeit Christian "Church."

The Council on Foreign Relations also plays both sides of the fence and is anti-American even though they are located in NYC.

The C.F.R. members are part of the Muslim Brotherhood and Sufis (the eastern parent of Freemasonry and Islamic esoteric mysticism). The Council on Foreign Relations and David Rockefeller Trilateral Commission have supranational powers (powers that extend governments and laws), so they have no problem telling on their partners. Here is an excerpt about Hamas written from a supposed objective opinion of the C.F.R.:
"Hamas is a Palestinian militant movement that also serves as one of the territories' two major political parties. A nationalist-Islamist spinoff of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas was founded in 1987, during the first intifada, and later emerged at the forefront of armed resistance to Israel. The United States and the European Union consider Hamas a terrorist organization. Its rival party, Fatah, which dominates the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), has renounced violence."
The support Hamas garners among Palestinians largely owes to the foil it plays to Fatah, which many see as having grown corrupted by power while delivering little through its peaceful cooperation and negotiation with Israel. Hamas candidates won Palestinian elections in 2006, but their government was dismissed in 2007, resulting in the political bifurcation of the West Bank and Gaza. While Fatah reasserted its authority in the West Bank, Hamas has exercised de facto rule over the Gaza Strip in the years since."[2]

After public outcry and watchdog groups, the 94-year-old former SS sergeant, who served at the Auschwitz death camp in 1944 has been convicted on 300,000 counts of accessory to murder and given a four-year sentence by a German court.
The trial at the state court in Lueneburg, northern Germany, provided an answer to the rhetorical question of whether people who were cogs in the Nazi wheel were equally guilty of crimes committed against 6 million Jews killed during the Holocaust.

Why the 94 y/o Nazi case is a ploy by Globalists to condemn Israel

Britain freed hundreds of suspected Nazi war criminals involved in the Holocaust under pressure from the United States, a leading historian has claimed. Dr. Dan Plesch uncovered United Nations War Crimes Commission documents which prove the Nazis were freed from British prisons under pressure from the US. Among the suspected war criminals released was Oskar Groening – dubbed the ‘Bookkeeper of Auschwitz’ – who was handed a four-year prison sentence in July, 2015, for his role in the Holocaust.
Other prominent Nazis freed by the UK were Erich von Manstein, Gerd von Rundstedt and Albert Kesselring.
Plesch said Britain freed the Nazis under pressure from the US, which wanted Germany as an ally in the Cold War against the Soviet Union. The director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at SOAS, part of the University of London, added that Germany also applied pressure to release suspected war criminals. “There was a political argument at the time in which those opposed to international criminal justice succeeded … There were lots of people who were either released without much investigation — and then there were people who were actually in prison camps and let out. Hundreds of suspects and convicted Nazis[were released],” Plesch told the Jewish Chronicle.
In April, Groening described some of the murders that he witnessed at Auschwitz. He once saw an SS officer grabbing a crying baby and slamming its head against a truck until the baby was quiet. "I was so shaken," Groening recalled, later asking his commander for a transfer from Auschwitz. Groening mentioned an incident in late 1942 when he witnessed Jews being taken to a converted farm house near the camp. An officer shut the door, put on a gas mask, opened a can and poured its contents down a hatch. "The screams became louder and more desperate, but after a short time they became quieter again," Groening said, according to Reuters. "This is the only time I participated in a gassing," he said, adding, "I don't mean participated, I mean observed."

Groening had previously confessed he felt "nothing" when he saw Jews put to death in the gas chambers.

"If you are convinced that the destruction of Judaism is necessary, then it no longer matters how the killing takes place," he told Der Spiegel in 2005... This is today's current "secret mantra" and mentality of Globalists and the Vatican/UN sponsored Faith and Globalization Initiative and Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

However, "The Iraq Inquiry" judges deemed accused war criminal Tony Blair's (who conspired with U.S. President George W. Bush to invade Iraq) crimes "top secret" in the interest of "national security."

The Globalists cannot have it both ways simply because former UK PM Tony Blair became the Special Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East (UN, EU, U.S. and Russian Federation) in 2007 (after converting to Roman Catholic and Pope Benedict XVI giving him a "red carpet" welcome to the Vatican).

----- more  -----


The UN/Vatican sponsored Tony Blair Faith a Foundation and UN/Vatican sponsored Faith and Globalization Initiative was launched in 2008 at the Time Warner building in New York City--in conjunction with "Skull & Bones" Yale University, Dunham University in the UK and the University of Singapore.

Now MI-6 (SIS) spy and accused war criminal Tony Blair lives in Jerusalem's Muslim Quarter--where the UN "Quartet" is headquartered.

The UN/Vatican sponsored Tony Blair Faith Foundation and Faith and Globalization Initiative are the New World Order arm of Babylon the Great, and today's Babylon is modern day Iraq--where the United States' largest embassy in the world is located. I am not against Muslims, because I know that the creation of the Islamic religion is as confusing to Muslims about the warmongering of the prophet Muhammad as it is to Jews and Christians.
The largest U.S. Embassy in the world is in Baghdad, Iraq

Whether you accept that the State of Israel (created in 1948) is legitimate or not, you have to realize that the Vatican has controlled the Holy Land with its Muslim partners since 1947—after the end of the British Mandate for Palestine.
Furthermore the name, "Palestine" was created by Roman Emperor Hadrian, when he expelled all the Jews from Judea-Samaria and renamed the region "Palestine" after the ancient Philistines.

At a conference in Cairo, Egypt in October, Hamas and Gaza was promised $5.4 billion from the Quartet on the Middle East (EU, UN, Russian Federation and U.S.)—after they attacked the State of Israel on three separate occasions.
The latest attack by Hamas against the State of Israel happened in April, May, June, and July 16, 2015. Last year, Israel was forced into Operation Protective Edge as a response to thousands of rockets launched by Hamas into Israel's southern cities. Yet the international community rewards Hamas, and condemns Israel for protecting itself.

"The latest attack by Hamas against the State of Israel happened in April, May, June & July."

The largest pledge to Hamas, $1 billion, came from Qatar, which owns Al Jazeera TV and has connections to Hamas. Other contributions include the European Union: $568 million; the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and Turkey: $200 million; and the United States: $212 million.
Therefore, just because Zionism is a political movement for the homeland of Jews in the "Holy Land," it does protect the Hebrew people according to the Biblical Covenant given to Jacob's descendants (Genesis 28:10-22 and the allegory of Sarah and Hagar in Galatians 4:21-31).   

How can the International Criminal Court in the Hague condemn the State of Israel, when Pope Francis is an accused war criminal?

Pope Francis helped kill 60,000 men, women and children in the C.I.A.'s dirty war dubbed "Operation Condor" in South America, when Pope Francis was just a cardinal and head of the JESUITS ("Society of Jesus" [sic] aka Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Rhodes, Palestine and Malta aka Knights of Malta—the diplomatic arm of the Vatican in the European Union and United Nations). This is why I stress that the Roman Catholic Church is the "Whore of Babylon" as foretold in the Revelation 17.

Revelation 17:1-5 (NIV)

Babylon, the Prostitute on the Beast

17 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. 2 With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”
3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. 5 The name written on her forehead was a mystery:

babylon the great the mother of prostitutes [false religions] and of the abominations of the earth.

[bold emphasis added]

Watch out for Jesus Christ's return (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:3-4)and Armageddon (Revelation 19-20 ). 

Thank God that He will eventually make ALL things new and there will be a new heaven and earth, and no more pain, tears, sickness or death (Revelation 21).

PLEASE GET INTO A BIBLE-BASED CHURCH

If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer: "Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability. Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin. Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!" If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a sect, Protestant or Catholic denomination or Eastern religion).

2 Corinthians 11:12-15 • New King James Version (NKJV)
12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

Colossians 1:15-23 (NIV)

The Supremacy of the Son of God
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.

21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the Gospel. This is the Gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

Godspeed, love and Truth,

Brother David Johnson, XU

Anglican Communion (Church of England), Catholic and Reformed church leaders agreed in 1937 to establish a World Council of Churches, based on a merger of the Faith and Order Movement (under Charles Brent of the Episcopal Church of the United States) and Life and Work Movement (under Nathan Söderblom of the Lutheran Church of Sweden) organizations. Its official establishment was deferred with the outbreak of World War II until August 23, 1948.

Richard Wurmbrand, founder of Voice of the Martyrs and author of Tortured for Christ, blamed the Word Council of Churches for turning its head to the atrocities in Europe and the Holocaust. Wurmbrand  stood up to Communism and its seduction towards the Evangelical Church in Romania during World War II. Wurmbrand wrote in Tortured for Christ; "The Communist convened a congress of all Christian bodies in our Parliament building. There were four thousand priests, pastors, and ministers of all denominations—and these men of God chose Joseph Stalin as honorary president of this congress. At the time he was president of the World Movement of the Godless and a mass murderer of Christians. One after another, bishops and pastors arose and declared that communism and Christianity are fundamentally the same and could coexist. One minister after another said words of praise toward communism and assured the new government of the loyalty of the Church."[Tortured for Christ the Voice of the Martyrs, page 15]

Before your child pledges a fraternity or sorority WARN THEM!


My loving youngest daughter just came back from a week long introduction to campus life at a college. When she told me that the chaperone for the trip took the tenth grade high school students to her sorority house, I had my daughter read my last post on The Boule.

The Rhodes and Rothschild secret societies also goes by the name, the ROUND TABLE GROUP, which created the BOULE and the 8 black fraternities and sororities (now known as the Divine Nine). Rockefeller is a subdivision of the Rhodes/Rothschild New World Order (NWO) regime and Vatican/United Nations' sponsored Faith and Globalization Initiative (launched in 2008 at the Time Warner building in NYC in conjunction with "Skull & Bones" Yale University, Dunham University in the UK, University of Singapore and former UK PM Tony Blair Faith Foundation) that indoctrinates university students through campus programs.

I want my daughter to go to college and earn a degreeBut I warned her to never join a sorority or female Freemasonry organization like: Daughters of Isis, Job's Daughters, Rainbow Girls, Eastern Star, etc., etc.

Mankind's never-ending quest for knowledge, self-reliance and self-actualization (the desire for "self-fulfillment") began at the Tower of Babel with Nimrod, who was king of Shinar (circa 2200–2154 BC), according to the Book of Genesis and Books of Chronicles.

Ancient empires and esoteric mystery pagan religions followed in this order: Ancient Babylon (present-day Iraq) was conquered by the Medes and Persians, who were conquered by the Greeks, then ancient Rome rose to power. Herod the Great (who was an Edomite and Arab Nabatean) married Mariamne I of the Hasmonean (Maccabean) dynasty.

Presently, we are living in the Divided Kingdom (New Holy Roman Empire, Anglican, Orthodox and Islam) period of eschatology and End Time Ministry as foretold in the book of Daniel.

Daniel 2:40-45 • New Living Translation (NLT)
40 Following that kingdom, there will be a fourth one, as strong as iron. That kingdom will smash and crush all previous empires, just as iron smashes and crushes everything it strikes. 41 The feet and toes you saw were a combination of iron and baked clay, showing that this kingdom will be divided. Like iron mixed with clay, it will have some of the strength of iron. 42 But while some parts of it will be as strong as iron, other parts will be as weak as clay. 43 This mixture of iron and clay also shows that these kingdoms will try to strengthen themselves by forming alliances with each other through intermarriage. But they will not hold together, just as iron and clay do not mix. 44 “During the reigns of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed or conquered. It will crush all these kingdoms into nothingness, and it will stand forever. 
45 That is the meaning of the rock cut from the mountain, though not by human hands, that crushed to pieces the statue of iron, bronze, clay, silver, and gold. The great God was showing the king what will happen in the future. The dream is true, and its meaning is certain.”

The Hellenistic period covers the period of ancient Greek history and Mediterranean history between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the emergence of the Roman Empire—as signified by the Battle of Actium in 31 BC—and the subsequent conquest of Ptolemaic Egypt the following year. At this time, Greek cultural influence and power (Hellenization) was at its peak in Europe, Africa and Asia, experiencing prosperity and progress in the arts, exploration, literature, theatre, architecture, music, mathematics, philosophy, and science. It is often considered a period of transition, sometimes even of decadence or degeneration.

Many people chose to ignore the fact that Hellenization inspired mankind's lust for sensual, guarded and omnipotent knowledge, which eventually led to Gnosticism (mystical knowledge limited to the few with specialized skills—a prominent heretical movement of the 2nd-century AD "Christian Church").

HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GREEK-LETTERED FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES: When young people are introduced to Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities, they are actually being introduced to ancient pagan Greek schools of thought and secret societies for "the privileged few." The Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities forget that God is the Only Alpha and Omega (Revelation 1:8; Revelation 21:5-9).

Revelation 1:8 • New Living Translation (NLT) 

8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,”[a] says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.”

Nu Theta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha

The National Pan-Hellenic Council has both fraternity and sorority chapters. The female sororities are: Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Sigma Gamma Rho, Zeta Phi Beta and the Nu Theta chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha (pictured above). These sororities are mostly made up of non-white members, and include many more sororities and members.


Most of the kids in this photo probably do not realize that they are making a Freemasonry symbol of the All-Seeing Eye of the god Horus in the triangle.

The privilege and prosperity of secret societies have only served "the enlightened few," while maintaining an esoteric practice that goes as far back as ancient Babylon! 

The BOULE (Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity) perhaps one of the first black Greek fraternities, was founded in 1904, but most of its founders were Prince Hall Masons and/or had strong Masonic affiliations. The term BOULE means “advisor to the king.” Its members already have received college and professional degrees at the time of their induction. The fraternity's insignia is the Sphinx. One of the nine predominantly African-American Greek-Lettered organizations, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated, was founded in 1914 at Howard University. Steve Cokley is considered the authority on the BOULE, he has a video series titled, “Boule Buster: The Plot To Destroy Black Education.” Ask yourself why the rioters in Maryland were allowed to burn down their own neighborhood and stores like Los Angeles, Harlem and a predominately black area once called "The Deuce" or "little Harlem" in Richmond, Virginia.

These secret societies derive from the oracles of Pythia and the ancient schools of philosophy and Greek polytheism that the Apostle Paul reproved "THE MEN OF ATHENS" for their religious piety and error in philosophy (Acts 17:15-24).

The Pythia, commonly known as the Oracle of Delphi, was the name of any priestess throughout the history of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, located on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, beneath the Castalian Spring (the new priestess was selected after the death of the current priestess). Earlier myths include traditions that Pythia, or the Delphic oracle, already was the site of an important oracle in the pre-classical Greek world (as early as 1400 BC) and, rededicated from about 800 BC, when it served as the major site during classical times for the worship of the god Apollo. Apollo was said to have slain Python, "a dragon" who lived there and protected the navel of the Earth. "Python" (derived from the verb πύθω (pythō)," to rot") is claimed by some to be the original name of the site in recognition of Python which Apollo defeated. Delphi is both an archaeological site and a modern town in Greece on the south-western spur of Mount Parnassus in the valley of Phocis.

 In myths dating to the classical period of Ancient Greece (510-323 BC), the site of Delphi was believed to be determined by Zeus when he sought to find the centre of his "Grandmother Earth" (Ge, Gaea, or Gaia). The Pythia was widely credited for her prophecies inspired by Apollo (Greek; meaning "the shepherd") an early anti-Messiah (anti-Christ to the prophesy of Isaiah in the Holy Bible).

The first verse of the Book of Isaiah states that Isaiah prophesied during the reigns of Uzziah (or Azariah), Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, the kings of Judah (Isaiah 1:1). Uzziah's reign was 52 years in the middle of the 8th century BC, and Isaiah must have begun his ministry a few years before Uzziah's death, probably in the 740s BC. Isaiah lived until the fourteenth year of Hezekiah's reign (who died 698 BC).

Therefore, God's prophet Isaiah prophesied about Jesus, the Messiah, almost 230 years before the myths dating to the classical period of Ancient Greece (510-323 BC). During this period the Delphic Oracle was considered the most authoritative oracle among the Greeks.

The oracle is one of the most documented religious cults of the classical Greeks. Authors who mention the oracle include Aeschylus, Aristotle, Clement of Alexandria, Diodorus, Diogenes, Euripides, Herodotus, Julian, Justin, Livy, Lucan, Ovid, Pausanias, Pindar, Plato, Plutarch, Sophocles, Strabo, Thucydides and Xenophon. Nevertheless, the philosophers of the classical period of Ancient Greece would have known and debated the teachings of the Hebrews and the prophet Isaiah... ISAIAH'S TEACHINGS TURNED OVER THE 666 NUMEROLOGY TEACHINGS OF APOSTATE ISRAEL AND GREECE, AND LATER THE DISBELIEF OF THE HERODIANS AND ROMANS!

Isaiah 9:6-9 • New Living Translation (NLT) 
6 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor,[a] Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen! The Lord’s Anger against Israel 8 The Lord has spoken out against Jacob; his judgment has fallen upon Israel. 9 And the people of Israel[b] and Samaria, who spoke with such pride and arrogance, will soon know it.

THE THEORY OF THE ORACLE OF PYTHIA

The usual theory has been that the Pythia delivered oracles in a frenzied state induced by vapors rising from a chasm in the rock, and that she spoke gibberish, which priests interpreted as the enigmatic prophecies preserved in Greek literature. You see a glimpse of the oracle in many Hollywood films about Ancient Greece. Apollo is one of the most complex of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology. The ideal of the kouros (a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, poetry, and more.

Apollo in Greek mythology dating to the classical period is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister. As the patron of Delphi (Pythian Apollo), Apollo was an oracular god—the prophetic deity of the Delphic Oracle.  Apollo was also seen as a god who could bring ill-health and deadly plague. Amongst the god's custodial charges, Apollo became associated with dominion over colonists, and as the patron defender of herds and flocks, which was the staple means of the economy of Athens, Greece.


Athens wasn’t always great. It began as a collection of villages in some of the poorest agricultural land in Greece.  

Socrates (470-399 BC) was the son of a sculptor and a midwife, and served in the Athenian army during Athens’ clash with Sparta. He married, but was a homosexual, who had a tendency to fall in love with handsome young men, in particular a young soldier named Alcibiades.

Philosophy, "the love of wisdom," was for Socrates itself a sacred path, a "holy quest" [sic]. He believed -- or at least said he did in the dialog Meno -- in the reincarnation of the "eternal soul," which he believed contained all knowledge. Socrates himself never wrote any of his ideas down, but rather engaged his students -- wealthy young men of Athens in conversations. Socrates famous student, Plato, reconstructed these discussions in a great set of writings known as the Dialogs.

Plato (437-347 BC) was Socrates’ prized student. From a wealthy and powerful family, his actual name was Aristocles -- Plato was a nickname, referring to his broad physique. Devastated by Socrates’ forced drinking of poison for his teaching and death, Plato wandered around Greece and the Mediterranean and was taken by pirates. His friends raised money to ransom him from slavery, but when he was released without it, they bought him a small property called Academus to start a school -- "the Academy," founded in 386.

Plato's Academy was more like Pythagorus’ pagan religious community -- a sort of quasi-college fraternity, where rich young men studied mathematics, astronomy, law, and, of course, philosophy. It was free, depending entirely on donations. True to his ideals, Plato also permitted women to attend (the earliest form of a college pledged "sorority").

The Academy would become the center of Greek learning for almost a millennium. 

Plato taught contrary to the Old Testament scrolls and God's Word. Plato said that the soul will always choose to do good, if it recognizes what is good. This is a similar conception of "good and bad" as the Buddhists have: Rather than bad being sin, it is considered a matter of ignorance. So, someone who does something bad requires education, not punishment. However, the Greeks being "learned men" could have looked to the lesson of King Solomon and the Israelites almost 500 years earlier (and the Hebrew Scriptures) to realize the folly of their "logic," false wisdom and teachings about sin.

1 Kings 12 1 Kings 11:4-11 • New Living Translation (NLT) 

4 In Solomon’s old age, they turned his heart to worship other gods instead of being completely faithful to the Lord his God, as his father, David, had been. 5 Solomon worshiped Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molech,[a] the detestable god of the Ammonites. 6 In this way, Solomon did what was evil in the Lord’s sight; he refused to follow the Lord completely, as his father, David, had done. 7 On the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem,[b] he even built a pagan shrine for Chemosh, the detestable god of Moab, and another for Molech, the detestable god of the Ammonites. 8 Solomon built such shrines for all his foreign wives to use for burning incense and sacrificing to their gods. 9 The Lord was very angry with Solomon, for his heart had turned away from the Lord, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice. 
10 He had warned Solomon specifically about worshiping other gods, but Solomon did not listen to the Lord’s command. 11 So now the Lord said to him, “Since you have not kept my covenant and have disobeyed my decrees, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to one of your servants."

GREEK PHILOSOPHY IS HERESY TO GOD AND HIS WORD!

The early Church of Rome (today's Vatican and Roman Catholic Church) made Plato an honorary "Christian," even though he died three and a half centuries before Christ! This problem continues today by the Roman Catholic Church canonizing people as "saints."

Clement of Alexandria (c. 150– c. 215), Greek theologian; Latin name Titus Flavius Clemens. He related the ideas of Greek philosophy to the Christian faith. Feast day, December 5.

Titus Flavius Clemens, known as Clement of Alexandria to distinguish him from the earlier Clement of Rome, was a Christian theologian who taught at the Catechetical School of Alexandria. A convert to Christianity, he was an educated man who was familiar with classical Greek philosophy and literature. As his three major works demonstrate, Clement was influenced by Hellenistic philosophy to a greater extent than any other Christian thinker of his time, and in particular by Plato and the Stoics. His secret works, which exist only in fragments, suggest that he was also familiar with pre-Christian Jewish esotericism and Gnosticism.

Clement of Alexandria is "venerated as a saint" in the Oriental Orthodox Church; Eastern Catholic Churches and Anglican Communion (Church of England and its colony churches).

Plato taught that people gradually move closer and closer to God through reincarnation as well as in their individual lives. Plate taught that the ethical goal in life is to come closer to the pure world of ideas and ideal, to liberate ourselves from matter, time, and space, and to become more real in this deeper sense. The goal is, in other words, self-realization-apart from God.

The early Church of Rome (today's Vatican and Roman Catholic Church) made Plato an honorary "Christian," even though he died three and a half centuries before Christ! 

Aristotle (384-322 BC) was born in a small Greek colony in Thrace called Stagira. His father was a physician and served the grandfather of Alexander the Great. Aristotle was Plato’s prize student, even though he disagreed with him on many points. When Plato died, Aristotle stayed for a while with another student of Plato, Hermias, who had made himself a dictator in northern Asia Minor. He married the dictator’s daughter, Pythias. They moved to Lesbos (an island where female homosexuals derive the word, "lesbian"), where Pythias died giving birth to their only child, a daughter. NOTE: The Daughters of Bilitis, also called the DOB or the Daughters, was the first lesbian civil and political rights organization in the United States.  The name of the newfound club was chosen in its second meeting. Bilitis is the name given to a fictional lesbian contemporary of Sappho, by the French poet Pierre Louÿs in his 1894 work "The Songs of Bilitis," in which Bilitis lived on the Isle of Lesbos alongside Sappho—whose poetry centers on passion and love for the same sex. The word lesbian derives from the name of the island where Sappho's was born, Lesbos, while her name is also the origin of the word sapphic; neither word was applied to female homosexuality until the 19th century. In the ancient Roman religion and myth, Janus is the god of beginnings and transitions, and thereby of gates, doors, doorways, passages and endings.

Pythias, also known as Pythias the Elder, was a Greek biologist and embryologist. She was the adoptive daughter of Hermias of Atarneus. The first mention of Hermias is as a slave to Eubulus, a Bithynian banker who ruled Atarneus. Hermias eventually won his freedom and inherited the rule of Atarneus. Due to his policies, his dictatorship expanded to other neighboring cities, such as Assos, in Asia Minor. In his youth, Hermias had studied philosophy in Plato's Academy. There he first met Aristotle.  After Plato's death in 347 BC, Xenocrates and Aristotle traveled to Assos under the patronage of Hermias. Hermias' towns were among those that revolted from Persian rule. In 342 BC, the Persian King, Artaxerxes III, sent Memnon of Rhodes to reconquer these coastal cities. In 334 BC, Plato returned to Athens and established his school of philosophy in a set of buildings called the Lyceum (from the Greek name for Apollo, “the shepherd”) there.

For four years, Aristotle served as the teacher of a thirteen year old Alexander the Great. By the time of of Alexander's death, he had conquered the Achaemenid Persian Empire and had traveled as far as India. Alexander grew up in Pella, the capital of the Kingdom of Macedon. He succeeded his father Philip II of Macedon to the throne in 336 BC, and died in Babylon in 323 BC at the age of 32. Alexander was tutored at the age of thirteen by Aristotle, Plato’s successor at the Academy of Athens. According to such eminent writers as Aeschylus and Plato, Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was a homosexual. Plato died in 347 BC and would have been a contemporary of Alexander.

In Hellenistic times, especially during the 3rd century BC, the god Apollo, became identified among Greeks with Helios, Titan god of the sun, and his name was changed to Apollos Helios---his sister, Artemis, was similarly equated with Selene, Titan goddess of the moon.

The Apostle Paul knew that the Arabs and Greeks worshiped sun and moon gods...

Acts 17:15-24 • New Living Translation (NLT) 

15 Those escorting Paul went with him all the way to Athens; then they returned to Berea with instructions for Silas and Timothy to hurry and join him. Paul Preaches in Athens 16 While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was deeply troubled by all the idols he saw everywhere in the city. 17 He went to the synagogue to reason with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and he spoke daily in the public square to all who happened to be there. 18 He also had a debate with some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers. When he told them about Jesus and his resurrection, they said, “What’s this babbler trying to say with these strange ideas he’s picked up?” Others said, “He seems to be preaching about some foreign gods.” 19 Then they took him to the high council of the city.[a] “Come and tell us about this new teaching,” they said. 20 “You are saying some rather strange things, and we want to know what it’s all about.” 21 (It should be explained that all the Athenians as well as the foreigners in Athens seemed to spend all their time discussing the latest ideas.) 22 So Paul, standing before the council,[b] addressed them as follows: “Men of Athens, I notice that you are very religious in every way, 23 for as I was walking along I saw your many shrines. And one of your altars had this inscription on it: ‘To an Unknown God.’ This God, whom you worship without knowing, is the one I’m telling you about. 24 “He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples,

LITERATURE, CULTS AND SECRET SOCIETIES 

Apollo and Helios/Sol remained separate beings in literary and mythological texts until the 3rd century AD (as the Greeks worshipped Apollos while the Roman aristocracy and soldiers still worshipped Sol and Mithra during this time).

The Mystic Order of Veiled Prophets of the Enchanted Realm, also known as M.O.V.P.E.R. or The Grotto, after its lodge equivalent, is an appendant body in Freemasonry—and is associated with the Church of Satan.

LaVeyan Satanism is a religious philosophy founded in 1966 by Anton LaVey, codified in The Satanic Bible and overseen by the Church of Satan. Its core beliefs and philosophies are based on individualism, egoism, epicureanism, self-deification and self-preservation, and propagates a worldview of natural law, materialism, Social Darwinism, Lex Talionis, and mankind as animals in an amoral universe.[1] Adherents to the philosophy have described Satanism as a non-spiritual religion of the flesh, or "...the world's first carnal religion." [1]

These modern fraternities and sororities with their secret pledges and Greek-lettered insignias continue to indoctrinate intelligent young people with their toga parties and wine dinners to the Greek god Bacchus and carnal love of Aphrodite/Venus & Cupid.

There is nothing glorifying to God about college fraternities and sororities for the privileged few to boast of their accomplishments and carnal-self and worldly wisdom.

1 Corinthians 1:26-29 (NLT) 

26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy[a] when God called you. 27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28 God chose things despised by the world,[b] things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29 As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.

Remember, when young people are introduced to Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities, they are actually being introduced to ancient pagan Greek "worldly wisdom" that derive from the oracles of Pythia and polytheism. These baby steps to the female and male adult Freemasonry organizations breed jealousy, anxiety, peer pressure, competition, exclusivity, and a privileged, narcissistic secret society.

There are known fraternal organizations which existed as far back as ancient Greece and in the Mithraic Mysteries of ancient Rome.

Analogous institutions developed in the late medieval period called confraternities, which were lay organizations allied to the Roman Catholic Church. Today, CCD, means 'Confraternity of "Christian" Doctrine' † [sic] and the Knights of Malta (Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta) is a 900-plus year old fraternity of Roman Catholic men, who serve as the diplomatic arm of the Vatican in the United Nations and European Union.

The Knights of Malta rank high on the Freemasonry chart—as an appendant body of York and Scottish Rite Freemasonry. Eventually Sufism was recognized as the eastern patent of Freemasonry and Apollo, Allah, Sol, Mithra, Aphrodite/Venus and other false gods became the adulteration of the Arab, Greek, Roman and Persian cult religions.


NOTE:
"Regardless of the "Catholic-Muslim Studies Program" and its interpretation of the Qur'an and Jihad, both the prophet Muhammad and the Papacy did create Holy Wars and Crusades to kill people for rejecting their "cult religions."

 James 3:14-17 • New Living Translation (NLT) 

14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind. 17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.

Before your son or daughter pledges a fraternity or sorority at college, WARN THEM!

PLEASE GET INTO A BIBLE-BASED CHURCH

If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer: "Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability. Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin. Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!" If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a sect, Protestant or Catholic denomination or Eastern religion).

Godspeed, love and Truth,

Brother David Johnson, XU
