The Bilderberg Plan to Obliterate Humanity! The Planned Genocide

The Bilderberg Plan to Obliterate Humanity February 10, 2014--Shepard Ambellas--By Dave Hodges (INTELLIHUB) — I recently interviewed Daniel Estulin the author of what will be the newest best seller, TransEvolution: The Coming Age of Human Deconstruction.Estulin wrote the book based largely on a Bilderberg white paper which was smuggled to him by a Bilderberg insider. The document was filled with information which spelled the end of the human race as we know it. Hollywood has made millions on movies like The Terminator, Blade Runner, and RoboCob, just to name a few. In fact, Robocop is being re-released in the next several weeks. Estulin states that cyborgs or man-machines are the future in a posthuman world. Yes, you read that correctly, we could soon find ourselves living in a post-human world. You may be familiar with the new TV series on FOX called Almost Human where one of the main characters is a cyborg cop. We could see such an interaction between nonhuman and morphed humans in the near future (i.e. Robocop).

In the future of transevolution we will be witnessing a literal fountain of youth,
which will result from becoming a cyborg as it will soon be possible to purchase
this technology in the future. However, everyone except the super elite will be
banned from purchasing this literal fountain of youth.

Humanity will be similar to what movie goers saw in the Summer of 2013 in the
movie, Man of Steel. In the opening 30 minutes of the movie, it was revealed that every resident of Krypton had certain genes “turned on” and certain genes “turned off”. And everyone from Krypton, except for Superman, had been artificially bred for specific purposes. This is what humanity is quickly moving towards and unless you are the elite, humanity will be bred, dumbed-down if needed, to serve a purpose for the global elite.

Estulin mentioned that the wholesale destruction of the world’s economy is not an
accident, nor is it a miscalculation or the result of political shenanigans. This destruction is being done on purpose, absolutely on purpose. Estulin revealed that his Bilderberg insider told him that the slave masters on this planet want to collapse the economy, force people into the stack and pack cities of mega millions and then exterminate most of humanity.Estulin and I explored the methods that the super elite may use to exterminate 90% of all people on this planet. We both agreed that starvation is the most likely candidate. Starvation is a clean method of killing, it is quick and it would leave the planet in good shape for the global elite to establish their paradise on Earth.

Psa 56:1 Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.

Psa 56:2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight
against me, O thou most High.
Psa 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
Psa 56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear
what flesh can do unto me.
Psa 56:9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for
God is for me.

Psa 56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet
from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living? Some of my readers and listeners have asked me about why I am so opposed to Agenda 21 and devote so much time fighting against it? To these and all others, I answer that forcing humanity to forsake rural and suburban living and move into the soon-to-be death traps of these mega cities, is very consistent with the tenets of
Agenda 21 (i.e. Earth First).

I recently interviewed my good friend, Barbara Peterson,  who presented evidence which demonstrated that the super elite are in the process of attacking not just humans with GMO’s which will eventually kill you, the GMO’s are also sterilizing our food supply. And then, as if by magic, Peterson and I took calls on my show from farmers all across the country, who confirmed the sterilization of both crops and farm animals was well under way.

Let’s give credit where credit is due. Monsanto is not alone in this conspiracy against humanity. In Chapter two of his book, Estulin, details how huge corporations like Monsanto, Cargill, and Archer Daniels are plotting to set up mass starvation on the planet. These corporate names became household names and they have become an “interlocked self perpetuating syndicate that will decide who eats and who doesn’t, who lives and who dies.” Why are mega corporations, such as these and a small socio-political elite allowed to own our food and control the very basis of humanity? The simple answer is, because they are evil and they can.

Estulin’s research indicates that GMO food was the creation of the
Rockefeller Foundation, who are members of the Bilderberg Group. This all part of the plan for total control of mankind. As an aside, Barbara Peterson noted in my interview with her that McDonalds fries will soon all be made of GMO’s.
Genetic engineering is about taking control of nature, redesigning it and rebuilding it.

The phrase “playing God” comes up in almost every conversation about genetic
engineering. This is no longer the stuff of science fiction. Nothing good comes from
genetic engineering as this generation of children will be the last generation which will be human in the sense that we define humanity today. Estulin documented how insects are being weaponized for combat through chipping as a result of recent DARPA projects. Humans will soon be chipped, not necessarily for warfare, but for the purpose of transformation into something hideous which will serve the whims of the global elite.

Presently, all the communication happening on the planet right now can be monitored in real-time and it is being done to control us, to dumb us down, to brainwash, to influence, and to predict our future behavior. The super elite is doing this so that we don’t get in the way of important people by doing too much thinking on our own. A simple example of this fact is in evidence in an ever-increasing number of airports as facial scanning techniques are designed to reveal to security individuals who are angry, malevolent, etc.

This technology is right here, right now! Estulin mentions Nazi Germany, in his book, numerous times throughout the book, Estulin drew a similarity between the mass control the Nazis had in comparison to the control the super elite has over the human race right now. Presently, America is approaching the 21st century fulfillment of what Hitler, Stalin and Mao as they attempted to initiate their genocidal regimes.

According to USA Today, “NASA recently revealed that their Mars robotic rover has
found signs that a vast and hospitable lake once spread over the now -desolate surface, a potential home to past life for centuries or more.”
With this new discovery that life may be possible on Mars, the elite could easily, through nanotechnology subsequently build a homestead there! There are many private corporations on the planet who are ready to go to Mars within five years. Some speculate that billionaire, Robert Bigelow, is ready now.

Apparently, if the elite cannot exterminate humanity in the clean and neat ways that they have designed, it may be necessary to temporarily move off world while the job is completed in more “messy” ways. According to some, this is their “Plan B”. Comment: Sorry Satan but this will not happen from a Biblical standpoint:

Psa 2:1 ¶ Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
Psa 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel
together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
Psa  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from
2:3   us.

Psa 2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them
in derision.
Psa 2:5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his
sore displeasure.

Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked
for the day of evil.

Job 21:30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be
brought forth to the day of wrath.

Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Psa 45:6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom
is a right sceptre.

Psa 47:8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his
holiness. Unlike Huxley, I have seen nothing brave about this new world. Nanotechnology is a powerful new technology for taking apart and reconstructing nature at the atomic level. Scientists are acting like God to manipulate life through the use of this technology. I can only imagine all the horrible things nanotechnology can do to the human race.

Nothing good with regard to nanotechnology can or will come from this blatant insanity. The plans of the global elite constitute an abomination before God. Right now, the elite are employing their “Promethean plans” which will change the world and will transform the very essence of humanity. Again, this is happening Now.

Let’s make no mistake about it; the super elite are attempting to become more powerful than God.

Comment: Hmm… Where have I heard that before? Oh I know:

Isa 14:12 ¶How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the
nations!

Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will
exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the
mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Isa 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
The super elite controls the human race in almost every imaginable possible way. Just the term, “conspiracy theorist”, was invented by the global elite as a marginalizing tool to keep the public from believing in conspiracy theories that will enslave humanity.

Little that happens in our world is an accident; it’s all part of this grand plan. (Photo: Intellihub News/Shepard Ambellas)

Ray Comfort's Rank Hypocrisy, Lordship Salvation Heresy, Deciet and Compromise


On the 27th May 2014 it was brought to my attention this startling quote from Ray Comfort
quoting Charles Spurgeon on discernment below on the right this is hypocritical of Ray Comfort as he has no discernment with regards to ecumenism but is compromised. 

Ray Comfort Quoted “Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right." Charles Spurgeon

Why does Ray Comfort not apply this to himself??????
Ray Comfort is confounding the situation here is a history of where Ray is compromising

Controversial issues about Way of the Master.
Having contacted Ray, no response have been given on certain issues concerning way of the master, as Ray comfort has compromised with TBN, Joyce Meyer, my e-mail to ray was sent on Tuesday, 27 May, 2008 21:50

To: "Emeal Zwayne" 



Dear Ray
I was surprised to find you personally on TBN, and especially on Joyce Mayor last year, would you consider her to be a Bible based woman of God and a Bible based teacher of the word, I was wondering what your intentions were, and if your motive was to try and reform TBN from the inside?
I would like to know also how you, Todd and Kirk view Paul and Jan Crouch do you believe they are good Godly people ?
Just wondering also if you believe that TBN is truly leading people to grow in God referring also to other programs.
I sincerely look forward to a response.
In His service
Miguel Hayworth

So far I have received no response this has led me to publicly expose what Ray is doing and has done in line with scripture.

Ephesians 5:11 "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."
To have no fellowship means we do not have association with those who are sinning against God, this is what TBN does.

Ray advertises Kirk Cameron on "Praise the Lord" program on TBN [2] and Ray's compromise with TBN's very own Joyce Meyer:




This is one of Rays compromises the scriptures teach us Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Joyce Meyer has made so many false teachings, it is always the false teachers that bring in division, it is never the people who stand for the word of God.

People may reason "Ray just wants to get the truth out no matter what." but if truth is distorted by the very people who teach us distorted teaching, the truth will never come out it just leaves people as casualties, these people promote superficial theology.

According to the scriptures 1Ti 2:11-12 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. The reason why in 1 tim 2:11-12 states this was because of what God said in Gen 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

This scripture amongst others concerning Gods clear underlined role of women was because of Gen 3:13 13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
Eve admitted that she was deceived was the reason what in verse 16 of Genesis God instructed that a woman should be in submission to her husband, their is always clear guidelines simply because women are more susceptible to deceit as eve admitted in the garden, this is why a woman cannot be pastor.

Ray comfort indicates that he believes Joyce Meyer is a credible minister of the gospel when in fact Joyce Meyer is in rebellion to God Ray did not in anyway speak out against this wolf in sheep's clothing.

What are some of the things that Joyce Meyer teaches, in her [3] 1991 booklet, The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make, an evangelistic work aimed at nonbelievers, she resounds the Word-Faith view of Christ’s atonement:
“During that time He entered hell, where you and I deserved to go (legally) because of our sin. He paid the price there ... no plan was too extreme ... Jesus paid on the cross and in hell” (pg. 35, underlining in the original).

“God rose up from His throne and said to demon powers tormenting the sinless Son of God, ‘Let Him go.’ Then the resurrection power of Almighty God went through hell and filled Jesus ... He was resurrected from the dead — the first born-again man” (pg. 36, underlining in the original).
“His spirit went to hell because that is where we deserved to go. Remember in the very beginning of this, I said, ‘When you die, only your body dies. The rest of you, your soul and spirit, goes either to heaven or hell’” (ibid.).
“There is no hope of anyone going to heaven unless they believe this truth I am presenting. You cannot go to heaven unless you believe with all your heart that Jesus took your place in hell” (ibid.).
“Jesus went to hell for you” (pg. 38, underlining in the original).
Meyer also declared on the tape that she no longer is a sinner:
“I’m going to tell you something folks, I didn’t stop sinning until I finally got it through my thick head I wasn’t a sinner anymore. And the religious world thinks that’s heresy and they want to hang you for it. But the Bible says that I’m righteous and I can’t be righteous and be a sinner at the same time ... All I was ever taught to say was, ‘I’m a poor, miserable sinner.’ I am not poor, I am not miserable and I am not a sinner. That is a lie from the pit of hell. That is what I was and if I still am then Jesus died in vain. Amen?”
The Apostle John says, “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8). It is Christ’s righteousness imparted to us, not ours, that makes us righteous.

In spite all that she teaches Ray Comfort ignores this, Rays intentions maybe good but Ray has this problem he taints what he does, "Unto the pure all things [are] pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving [is] nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate."
(Titus 1:15 - 16)

Ray Comfort goes into the temple of Gods and Goddesses, for some one who claims to present the uncompromising gospel he is doing the very thing that King Solomon did in the Bible, Ray Comfort may believe that the opportunity to minister outweighed the risk and that he fully intends to speak whatever God wants him to say.

This is sinning against God, Solomon did a little compromise here and their, some times we all need to be reminded not to make the same mistake.
Stephen warns in acts 7:43.
“Yea, you took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star
of your god Remphan, figures which you made to worship
them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.”

[4] TBN is deep rooted in babylonian Mystersism this should be enough to keep away and especially over their association with Todd Bentley amongst others.
Here are photos of pagan idols from inside the TBN Studio, images are added with permission from Dr. Joseph Chambers, Paw Creek Ministries. [5]



TBN is by far a proponent for the New Age movement and Paganism mixed in to the Christian mindset, [6] Kenneth Copeland Interview "Praise-a-Thon" program on TBN [April 1988]

* Kenneth Copeland: "I was shocked when I found out who the biggest failure in the Bible actually is."
* Paul Crouch: "Okay."
* Kenneth Copeland: "You know everybody you ask, you say, 'Who's the biggest failure?' They say, 'Judas' Somebody else will say, 'No,! believe it was Adam.' Well, how about the devil?"
* Paul Crouch: (Sound of amazement)
* Kenneth Copeland "He's the most consistent failure.., but he's not the biggest in terms of material failure and so forth. The biggest in the whole Bible is God.. . . Wait, wait. Don't you turn that set off. You listen to us. I told you... . Now, you sit still a minute. You know me well enough to know I wouldn't tell something I can't prove by the Bible.

Other known issues was [7] Dr. Martin had contacted Copeland by mail confronting him on this issue, but unfortunately his responses to Dr. Martin “were not kind or receptive.”

A short time after this statement was made here a conversation ensued with Paul Crouch (on TBN) on this very subject of Copeland's prophecy. “Were still questioning what was said about that prophecy, that prophecy never mentions the Son of God, it never said anything about the Son of God. “ (Crouch) What did it say? “It said I did not claim to be God!” that’s all it said.” (Crouch) “In other words in so many words your right nowhere in the New Testament did he literally get up and (Copeland interjects “preach and say I am God), say I AM God did he. Now I stand corrected.” (Ed. Note- It doesn't matter what Copeland thinks he did, but what did Jesus think he did.)

Knowing that TBN has made heretical teachings, false prophecies, compromised with Ecumenism (please see image of Paul Crouch and the Pope), [8], Islam and on other issues.
In 2005, 2007 and 2008 [9] at winning in Life confrence ran by Ray Comforts friend [10] the Y2K False Prophet Robb Thompson who is the senior pastor of Family Harvest Church, Robb Thompson are friends with John Bevere and his wife lisa. [11] Robb Thompson's ministry sent out invitations for speakers for the 2005 confrence, which [12] one of the speakers was Ray Comfort, Ray had shared the platform with heretical and apostate false teachers John Avanzini, Mike Murdock, Kenneth Copeland, Gloria Copeland and Jesse Duplantis.

In 2007 Ray Comfort Shared the Platform with false heretical teachers [13] Rick Renner, Jesse Duplantis, John Avanzini abd Mike Murdock.

In 2008 at an Inspiring Excellence Conference, [Backup image, 14] Ray Comfort again shared the platform with John Avanzini, Jesse Duplantis, Mike Murdock and Rod Parsley.
In August 2009 Ray Comfort has associated him self with false prophet and ecumenist false teacher Pat Robertson.
Does Ray Comfort actually knows what it means to use discernment . 

Ray Comfort now admittedly is in partnership to the Salvation Army.

 Ray Comfort Says "For our partnership with the Salvation Army


Published on 7 May 2012
Ray Comfort & Stuart Scott are in Hollywood with The Salvation Army open air preaching on the corner of Hollywood and Vine.

 

Papal Visit UK 2010

A British Christian, Ecumenical and known for supporting roles and advocates in the pro-homosexual community [see info...] reports "Commissioner Betty Matear of the Salvation Army and the Presidents of the ecumenical grouping Churches Together in England, have welcomed Pope Benedict XVI’s visit"

Commissioner John Matear, the Territorial Commander of the Salvation Army, hoped that the Papal visit would help the churches to "…together proclaim the good news of the Kingdom in word and deed".

Action of Churches Together Scotland reports:
Lieut - Colonel Alan Burns, Scotland Secretary for the Salvation Army says, 'On behalf of Salvationists in Scotland I’m pleased to welcome Pope Benedict XV1. His visit, coinciding with the feast of St Ninian, will give Christians throughout the nation opportunity to collectively celebrate the life and work of the Churches throughout the ages.

Statement from Scottish Christian:
Salvation Army Commissioner Betty Matear, said they hoped Pope Benedict XVI’s visit would be a source of encouragement to all of England’s churches.

Commissioner Betty Matear of the Salvation Army:
After the visit of the Pope to Westminster Abbey for the celebration of evening prayer, I was privileged to be invited to participate in a dinner and discussion hosted by our Government, involving Roman Catholic cardinals and bishops.

It confirmed that engagement of Church and State is critical and productive. It is important that the different parts of the Body of Christ, the Church, talk to one another. The recent visit gives us the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships and to be confident in the gospel of grace we share.

 
(Comment: No Commissioner Betty Matear the Church of Rome and the ecumenical movement do not share the same Gospel, the Church of Rome and the Pope is an abomination before God).

Together as the Body of Christ we work to express and understand the common faith we share and how we might live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

(Comment: No Commissioner Betty Matear Common Faith with the Pope is not something we should share.)

I want to confirm that our Salvation Army is at the heart of all of this.

In recent days we took time to ask every division to share where we were working ecumenically and, to date, the responses stretch to a 28-page listing! There are no exceptions; in every division there is involvement at every level.

The words of 1 Corinthians 12 regarding the Body of Christ describe our interconnectedness,
our roles and God’s desire and design for unity.
(Commissioner Betty Matear this is false doctrine and pure Blasphamy.)

Caboolture Lodge Australia


 Tents for the local needy children.

19th March 2009 the Worshipful Master presented the Salvation Army with a cheque, which was organised by Wor. Bro. Dawson, to assist them in the purchase of two new tents.

These are for the use of their ‘Guarding And Legions Activities’ group who hold regular camps to give the local underprivileged children experience of the great outdoors. This group is open for any child between the ages of 5 – 17 with many coming from poor socio-economic situations. This donation was greatly helped by the Board of Benevolence through their ‘Dollar for Dollar’ subsidy.

This ‘work’ has been so very compatible with my religious duties, and the great joy for me has been that I have always been able to carry out those Masonic duties as if I was wearing the Salvation Army uniform ‘S’ insignia on my collar.

There will inevitably be those who will say “Ah! But what about the Gospel of Christ – where does that fit into your belief as a Salvationist and your Masonic teaching!

Well, I don’t have a problem with that - but perhaps it could, or maybe should, be for a future discussion or article!

  

Ray Comfort Admits to his partnership with the Salvation Army and would make the statement Ray Comfort Quoted from

RAY COMFORT AND FRANKLIN GRAHAM ON TBN’S PRAISE THE LORD TONIGHT

aaq0

A couple of weeks ago here at Apprising Ministries I showed that Franklin Graham was hosting TBN’S Praise the Lord program. At the time, it was part of  a series of three such Praise the Lord (PtL) programs.

In addition, you may also recall that I reminded you PtL is the main vehicle for fleecing the Christian flock used by Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), which some call Trinity Blasphemy Network.
With this in mind then, I point out to you tonight’s PtL schedule:

0a0



 Speaking at the Roman Catholic Belmont Abbey College, Noth Carolina, Dr. Graham said: "The gospel that built this school and the gospel that brings me here tonight is still the way to salvation" (Gastonia Gazette, November 22, 1967). That is plain enough. The then executive vice-president of Belmont Abbey College, Rev. Cuthbert E. Allen, agreed. He wrote, "I have followed Billy Graham's career and I must emphasize that he has been more Catholic than otherwise... Billy Graham is preaching a moral and evangelical theology most acceptable to Catholics." (Personal letter, reproduced in Billy Graham and the Church of Rome, by I.R.K. Paisley, Appendix. Document No.3).

The  question then has to be asked is why is Ray Comfort compromising with the Graham's ???

It also asks the question is Comforts Ministry simply a Business?

Considering he charges extortionate amounts of money for gospel materials, you can get them cheaper else where or for no cost at all.

0a0


A friend told me "THERE COMES A TIME... WHEN ABSCISSION IS THE ONLY OPTION...
[TBN is in reality The Trinity Blasphemy Network, and Christians need to avoid it, not lend credibility to it, as Ray Comfort etc. does here...]

I do not trust Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
He, as does his dad Billy Graham, believe Mormons are Christians.

Billy Graham believes people can be saved outside of Christ Jesus:
This lie is clear here: 1:32 min: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCgpUPHkgc8


That means to me that they are pure unadulterated heretics -

and false prophets by biblical definition..

They are not true Christians as according to Scripture.
They will not enter heaven unless they repent of their aberrant ways.
They do not know nor preach the Jesus of the Bible.

End of story..

Many are those that will leave the way of the true God and Christ of the Cross and Resurrection eventually, in spite of being seemingly true in the beginning.

But as Scripture says, 'they never were with us', they have deceived many into believing hey were leaders in the flock, but then they became leaders in leading others astray.

We must read their stuff with discernment and earnestly pray that God will keep us from straying after false leaders."

Franklin Graham has supported ecumenical gatherings around the world such as the interfaith ecumenical "hope together"

http://www.firstplumbline.net/html/hope0804.html


We also know that other liberal and ecumenists have supported Ray Comforts ministry.

Such as the AFA, Franklin Graham, Ravi Zacharias, John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, Dr. Norman Geisler, Bill Gothard, David Wilkerson, Joni Eareckson Tada, and many other Christian leaders. He has written for Billy Graham's Decision magazine and Bill Bright's Worldwide Challenge.

Ray Comfort does teach the heresy of Lordship Salvation.

“Merely being sorry for your sins, or confessing them to God won't help you. You must turn from sin (repent).”

SOURCE: LIVING WATERS ministry, SAVE YOURSELF SOME PAIN


Ray Comfort even attempts to use Matthew 7:21-23 to prove his Lordship Salvation heresy; thus corrupting the Scriptures...
On page 1197 of THE EVIDENCE BIBLE, Ray Comfort comments on Matthew 7:22,23...
"These are perhaps the most frightening verses in the Bible. Vast multitudes of professing Christians fit into the category spoken of here. They call Jesus 'Lord,' but they practice lawlessness. They profess faith in Jesus, but have no regard for the divine law. hey tell 'fibs' or 'white' lies, take things that belong to others, have a roaming eye for the opposite sex, etc. They are liars, thieves, and adulterers at heart, who will be cast from the gates of heaven into the jaws of hell."
SOURCE: THE EVIDENCE BIBLE, by Ray Comfort, pg. 1197; 2003, Bridge-Logos Publishers, Orlando, Florida
Ladies and gentleman, Ray Comfort is teaching works salvation! According to what we just read by Ray Comfort, every believer who is still living in deliberate sin won't be allowed into Heaven.
The correct interpretation of Matthew 7:22,23 must include verse 21...
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."
What is "the will of the Father"? The answer is found in John 6:40...
"And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day."
The group in Matthew 7:21-23 were unsaved because they refused to do God's will concerning salvation. It wasn't because they still had personal sins in their life. Every believer still has sin in their life! We all sin every day. That's not to say that we have God's approval to sin, God forbid (Romans 3:31). It just means that even the best of Christians are still sinners. Ray Comfort wrestles the Scriptures to his own destruction, and sadly for those who follow his false teachings.

It was actually Billy Graham that made the doctrine popular.
Billy will usually tell his audience that salvation is, again, a free gift that cannot be earned no matter what we do. It is, by far, Graham’s terse persona that captivates and influences an audience rather than the Holy Spirit of God. Hypothetically speaking, how would you feel if you were in a car with someone the likes of whom I am about to describe? Imagine you are trying to get somewhere that you’ve never been before and the person next to you says this:

“Okay, take a left, and then take a right, and then stop, back up, take another right. Wait. Take another left. My map is correct! Trust me! Stop. Go right again, then turn left. Can’t you go any faster? Okay, turn right here. Stop. Take a left, then take another left. Wait. Go back. Can’t you do anything right? Start over. Go right, then left, go sharply right now. Stop! Can’t you follow my directions? Back up and take another right. Wait, go left. Trust me, I know where I’m taking you!” That, reader, is the sad yet accurate equivalent of the plan of salvation according to Billy Graham. It will get you nowhere. “There is an increasing number of ‘evangelicals’ today who are preaching that in order for a man to be saved he must not only receive Christ as his Savior, but also must make Him absolute Lord and Master of his life. This doctrine has been termed “Lordship salvation” and has absolutely no support from the Word of God. It is, in fact, another subtle way Satan has invented to get Bible-believing men to add works to salvation without, perhaps, their realizing it, and to do it in such a way that it sounds spiritual and good” (Stanford, 87-88).

The Distinctives of Lordship Salvation (taken from Grace Community Church’s website)
With comments (in Bold) by John Hayworth.

There are many articles of faith that are fundamental to all evangelical teaching. For example, there is agreement among all believers on the following truths: (1) Christ’s death purchased eternal salvation; (2) the saved are justified by grace through faith in Christ alone; (3) sinners cannot earn divine favor; (4) God requires no preparatory works or pre-salvation reformation; (5) eternal life is a gift of God; (6) believers are saved before their faith ever produces any righteous works; and (7) Christians can and do sin, sometimes horribly.

What, then, are the distinctives of lordship salvation? What does Scripture teach that is embraced by those who affirm lordship salvation but rejected by proponents of “easy-believism”? The following are nine distinctives of a biblical understanding of salvation and the gospel.

First, Scripture teaches that the gospel calls sinners to faith joined in oneness with repentance (Acts 2:38; 17:30;20:21; 2 Pet. 3:9). Repentance is a turning from sin (Acts 3:19; Luke 24:47) that consists not of a human work but of a divinely bestowed grace (Acts 11:18; 2 Tim. 2:25). It is a change of heart, but genuine repentance will effect a change of behavior as well (Luke 3:8; Acts 26:18-20). In contrast, easy-believism teaches that repentance is simply a synonym for faith and that no turning from sin is required for salvation.

(Comment) Repentence Greek Metanoia means a change of mind, as it appears to one who repents, of a purpose he has formed or of something he has done. Biblical repentance involves a change of one’s thinking, a change of mind, as the scripture states:

In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; (2 Timothy 2:25)

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, (Hebrews 6:1).

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
(Acts 16:31)


According to Grace Fellowship Paul and Silas would be teaching “easy-Believism” by telling this man that in order to be saved all that was necessary was for him to believe! Paul declared:

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Romans 10:9)

Biblical Repentance is about changing one’s attitude towards the Lord Jesus:

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. (John 20:31)
   
Second, Scripture teaches that salvation is all God’s work. Those who believe are saved utterly apart from any effort on their own (Titus 3:5). Even faith is a gift of God, not a work of man (Eph. 2:1-5,8). Real faith therefore cannot be defective or short-lived but endures forever (Phil. 1:6; cf. Heb. 11). In contrast, easy-believism teaches that faith might not last and that a true Christian can completely cease believing.

(Comment) Paul, in writing to the Gentiles believers in Rome warned them about the possibility of them being “cut off”:

For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. (Romans 11:21-22)

The writer to the Hebrews also speaks thus:

But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; (Hebrews 3:14-15).
    
These scriptures are written to believers, to people who profess Christ and have faith. The Holy Spirit speaks of God dealing out to people the “measure of faith.” (Romans 12:3)

Third, Scripture teaches that the object of faith is Christ Himself, not a creed or a promise (John 3:16). Faith therefore involves personal commitment to Christ (2 Cor. 5:15). In other words, all true believers follow Jesus (John 10:27-28). In contrast, easy-believism teaches that saving faith is simply being convinced or giving credence to the truth of the gospel and does not include a personal commitment to the person of Christ.

(Comment) The scriptures point out that there will be those that are weak and who struggle. The message is clear:

We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. (Romans 15:1)

…comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. (1 Thessalonians 5:14)

And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. (Hebrews 12:13)

Fourth, Scripture teaches that real faith inevitably produces a changed life (2 Cor. 5:17). Salvation includes a transformation of the inner person (Gal. 2:20). The nature of the Christian is new and different (Rom. 6:6). The unbroken pattern of sin and enmity with God will not continue when a person is born again (1 John 3:9-10). Those with genuine faith follow Christ (John 10:27), love their brothers (1 John 3:14), obey God’s commandments (1 John 2:3; John 15:14), do the will of God (Matt. 12:50), abide in God’s Word (John 8:31), keep God’s Word (John 17:6), do good works (Eph. 2:10), and continue in the faith (Col. 1:21-23; Heb. 3:14). In contrast, easy-believism teaches that although some spiritual fruit is inevitable, that fruit might not be visible to others and Christians can even lapse into a state of permanent spiritual barrenness.

(Comment) A person who is born of God will have a changed life. They will no longer be unbelievers and their life will begin to show evidence of this. Whereas before they did not desire Christ, now they do desire Him. The problem here is that people are not being encouraged to continue in Grace, a whole heap of other things is being piled on their shoulders. Rather than encourage believers to grow and trust Christ this encourages people to doubt whether they are really saved! It gives people the idea that unless they are sinlessly perfect they are not really saved!

I have met some dear people who came away from meetings led by proponents of Lordship Salvation doubting whether or not they were truly saved!

If fruit is present in their lives this means that they are saved. The parable of the sower shows us that the seed that fell on good soil bears fruit but that no two plants will bear the same amount of fruit:

But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. (Matthew 13:8 & Mark 4:20) 

Some people’s lives will be more fruitful than others! Being less fruitful is no indication of lacking salvation.

Fifth, Scripture teaches that God’s gift of eternal life includes all that pertains to life and godliness (2 Pet. 1:3;Rom. 8:32), not just a ticket to heaven. In contrast, according to easy-believism, only the judicial aspects of salvation (e.g., justification, adoption, and positional sanctification) are guaranteed for believers in this life; practical sanctification and growth in grace require a post-conversion act of dedication.

(Comment) When a person first becomes a believer, born again by faith in Jesus Christ, they are NOT fully mature in the faith. Personal Sanctification and growth in Grace can only come “post-conversion”! When a person is born again of the Spirit of God they have been perfected but sanctification (or Holiness as it is also called) is a continual process:

For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. (Hebrews 10:14)

In other translations we are given to understand that being sanctified is a continual process:

those who are being sanctified. (NKJV), those who are being made holy. (NIV), those who are being sanctified. (HNV).

The Greek text uses the term ἁγιαζομένους (hagiazoumenous) which gives the sense of the sanctification being pronounce upon people. Just as the Christ’s righteousness is imputed to us, so the sanctification is a work of God. 

Sixth, Scripture teaches that Jesus is Lord of all, and the faith He demands involves unconditional surrender (Rom. 6:17-18; 10:9-10). In other words, Christ does not bestow eternal life on those whose hearts remain set against Him (James 4:6). Surrender to Jesus’ lordship is not an addendum to the biblical terms of salvation; the summons to submission is at the heart of the gospel invitation throughout Scripture. In contrast, easy-believism teaches that submission to Christ’s supreme authority is not germane to the saving transaction.

(Comment) Whenever the Gospel was preached in the scriptures we do not read anywhere where people were exhorted to submit to the Lordship of Christ. They were exhorted to believe in the Son of God. (John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10; 1John 5:13; John 1:12-13; Romans 4:13-25; Romans 5:1-2; 

Seventh, Scripture teaches that those who truly believe will love Christ (1 Pet. 1:8-9; Rom. 8:28-30; 1 Cor. 16:22). They will therefore long to obey Him (John 14:15, 23). In contrast, easy-believism teaches that Christians may fall into a state of lifelong carnality.

(Comment) We cannot fault the scriptures! Yet when reading this seventh distinctive do we not automatically begin to question, “Do I love Jesus?” Will we ever love Him enough?

Eighth, Scripture teaches that behavior is an important test of faith. Obedience is evidence that one’s faith is real (1 John 2:3). On the other hand, the person who remains utterly unwilling to obey Christ does not evidence true faith (1 John 2:4). In contrast, easy-believism teaches that disobedience and prolonged sin are no reason to doubt the reality of one’s faith.

(Comment) The commandments we have been given to follow are to Love God above all else and love everyone else as ourselves. 

Ninth, Scripture teaches that genuine believers may stumble and fall, but they will persevere in the faith (1 Cor. 1:8). Those who later turn completely away from the Lord show that they were never truly born again (1 John 2:19). In contrast, easy-believism teaches that a true believer may utterly forsake Christ and come to the point of not believing.

(Comment) When Paul was writing to the believers in Galatia it was obvious from his letter that he considered them to have been believers because he addresses them as “brethren”. (Galatians 6:1) He speaks of them as being “known of God”. (Galatians 4:9) Paul writes to them in order to warn them of false teachers that had come amongst them. Judas Iscariot was an Apostle of Christ, when he was sent out he had the power of God to heal the sick just as the other 11 Apostles could!

Most Christians recognize that these nine distinctives are not new or radical ideas. The preponderance of Bible-believing Christians over the centuries have held these to be basic tenets of orthodoxy. In fact, no major orthodox movement in the history of Christianity has ever taught that sinners can spurn the lordship of Christ yet lay claim to Him as Savior.

This issue is not a trivial one. In fact, how could any issue be more important? The gospel that is presented to unbelievers has eternal ramifications. If it is the true gospel, it can direct men and women into the everlasting kingdom. If it is a corrupted message, it can give unsaved people false hope while consigning them to eternal damnation. This is not merely a matter for theologians to discuss and debate and speculate about. This is an issue that every single pastor and layperson must understand in order that the gospel may be rightly proclaimed to all the nations.

(Comment) On the surface LS may seem Biblical however it lends itself to self-righteous judging of weak believers. Many believers struggle with the flesh, as Paul wrote:

…we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.   (Romans 7:14-25)

LS leaves so many under condemnation as they judge themselves as not living up to the measure of sinless perfection that this doctrine implies!

LS is a divisive doctrine. Church leaders will tell their charges to have nothing to do with other believers who do not hold to the Lordship position. 
                    
Teachers of LS deny that they teach a works-based Salvation, however the very nature of LS proves otherwise. We are not saved on the basis of anything other than faith. It is our faith that justifies us, the fact that we believe on Christ, and nothing more:

 
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. (Titus 3:5-8)

LS implies that anyone who does not agree with this doctrine is teaching Antinomianism or “easy-believism” as they call it! This accusation was also leveled against Paul:

(as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just. (Romans 3:8)


For some good questions that every adherent of LS needs to answer:

EVANGELICALS AND CATHOLICS TOGETHER FOR CHRISTIAN ROCK (Friday Church News Notes, July 22, 2011, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The 13th annual Lifest Christian rock festival in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, featured five days of rock & roll, complete with a Catholic mass and a message by well-known evangelical speaker Greg Laurie. Some 20,000 people gathered July 6-10 to hear Christian rock groups such as Hawk Nelson, Skillet, TobyMac, Lincoln Brewster, MercyMe, Superchick, Newsboys, and Kutless. Greg Laurie of International Harvest Crusades, spoke on the last day of the event, preceded by a Catholic mass led by bishop David Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay. Lifest founder Bob Lenz said, “We want to get al the flavors of the church” (“Green Bay Bishop David Ricken Leads Mass,” Green Bay Press Gazette, July 10, 2011). What Lenz is talking about is not a “church”; it is end-times apostasy and rebellion to God’s Word. “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them” (Romans 16:17). Christian rock’s unscriptural ecumenical philosophy is one of the many reasons why we warn against it in no uncertain terms.

Ray Comfort and Living Waters Ecumenical Alliances

This is not guilt by association but Guilt by participation.

Since so many are defending Ray Comfort I will make this post as to the reasons why I will not support his ministry.

The Ecumenism has grow very rapidly in the western world many churches because of it are led deeper into the RCC and so I will maintain separation from any individual or group who will not practice Biblical Separation to something that is deeply satanic.

First of all his ties to TBN http://www.firstplumbline.net/html/wotm.html

TBN have an ecumenical statement on their website Ray never comes out against the RCC for that matter ecumenism

Ray's ministry has been commended by Dr. D. James Kennedy, Josh McDowell, Joni Eareckson Tada, Franklin Graham, Bill Gothard, David Wilkerson, and many other Christian leaders. His literature is used by the Moody Bible Institute, Leighton Ford Ministries, Campus Crusade For Christ, Institute in Basic Life Principles, and more.

http://www.wayofthemaster.com/bestsellingbook.shtml

Ray Comfort's ministry has been praised by Franklin Graham, Ravi Zacharias, John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, Josh McDowell, Dr. Norman Geisler, Bill Gothard, David Wilkerson, Joni Eareckson Tada, and many other Christian leaders.

Comfort has has written for Billy Graham's Decision magazine and Bill Bright's Worldwide Challenge RAY COMFORT SITTING WITH Ecumenist JOYCE MEYER

(Three part bundle at the end, includes False Prophet Reinhard Bonnke who does phony miracles, and false teach Joyce Meyer). So YES! Ray Comfort DOES agree with and allows his material to be packaged with her teaching. Can be seen here at this link:

Pat Robertson Comments on Pope John Paul II's Passing

CBN.com – VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., April 02, 2005 -- I am deeply grieved as a great man passes from this world to his much deserved eternal reward. John Paul II has been the most beloved religious leader of our age – far surpassing in popular admiration the leader of any faith.

He has been a man of great warmth, profound understanding, deep spirituality, and indefatigable vigor. It was my great honor to meet with him at the residence of my good friend, Cardinal O’Connor, in New York, and to sit in the Consistory during the mass he conducted in Central Park. I told him at the time how much the American people loved him, and he merely smiled. That love was shared not only in America but by millions all over the globe.

I pray for the Cardinals of the Catholic Church that they might have God-given wisdom in selecting the successor to this great man. Their task will not be easy, but with God all things are possible.

GENERAL André Cox is calling for the worldwide Salvation Army to join him in echoing the call of Pope Francis for an end to world hunger. The General says: ‘It is clear from the response of the media and from Christians of all denominations that the calls to simple living from the Pope have struck a chord. As Salvationists we have been called to serve the world's poorest people – those who have nothing. I applaud Pope Francis for putting back into the public domain, through social and mass media, the causes The Salvation Army has been addressing for almost 150 years.’

The Pope’s call to end hunger is just one of the ways in which he has placed the Roman Catholic Church at what Nancy Gibbs (Managing Editor, Time Magazine) calls: ‘the very centre of the central conversations of our time.’ His straightforward, relevant approach led to him being named Time’s Person of the Year for 2013.

GENERAL Linda Bond, international leader of The Salvation Army, has sent messages of welcome to Pope Francis I and to the Rt Hon and Most Rev Justin Welby, who will be enthroned as Archbishop of Canterbury, leader of the Church of England, on 21 March.

To Archbishop Welby she wrote: 'The Church universal faces great challenges as we seek to minister the gospel of Jesus Christ and so I want to assure you that Salvationists stand with their Anglican sisters and brothers in the cause of Christ. God bless and keep you and grant you wisdom, courage and strength.'

In her message to His Holiness Pope Francis she said: 'My prayer is that God will give you physical and spiritual strength, as well as holy courage, so that you might stand firm as a true soldier of Jesus Christ. God bless and keep you always and grant you his peace.'

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works (iniquity), there is none that doeth good. (Psalms 14:1)
What this passage of the Bible says is that God wants us to know that He exists and is not willing to let anyone get away with compromise, for to compromise would mean you are hiding behind a lie. Such a person declares that there is a God but lives as if God actually didn't exist, or that he simply isn't bothered. Though they may engage in charitable works, God does not consider their deeds righteous, in fact (as the prophet Isaiah wrote), their works are as filthy menstrual (Hebrew: iddah) rags (Hebrew: beged) (Isaiah 64:6) strongs reference filthy H5708 and rags H899.
The Masonic Order is one such example. To be a Mason one must accept that there is a god, and engage in philanthropic endeavours, yet the very nature of Freemasonry is shrouded in
secrecy, occultic rituals and, at its highest levels is, according to some of it's highest ranking leaders, Luciferian. These are fools that hide behind a lie (as if there were no God, or that he simply wasn't bothered) in order to justify their abominable works/iniquities.
They think by doing good works they will gain favour from the Lord, yet they choose to compromise the gospel in the name of humanitarian aid, thus they become futile in their deeds and their good works are not accounted as righteous because they have forsaken the very things that God has said.
Having dealings with the occult the Bible says:
”For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” (1 Sam. 15:23)

Audio recording of William Booth

William Booth Sons And Daughters Of Misery.
General William Booth (1829-1912), founder of the Salvation Army c.1900

The photograph above shows Booth with two of his grandchildren. John Wesley’s life and ministry has been a source of inspiration to many within the evangelical tradition. Some churches may not have the name Methodist in their title, but are nevertheless members of the Wesleyan family .
William Booth was a minister of the Methodist New Connexion before founding the Salvation Army. Booth’s travelling ministry, organisational skill, outreach to the poor and patriarchal image identifies him as a true ‘Gospel Son’ of John Wesley, Booth is buried next to his wife Catherine.
Even when the gospel was preached it was also being undermined by William Booth's acquaintances, especially with one luciferian, in particular Lord Rothschild (a high ranking freemason who appreciated Booth's work so much he gave him £1000) [1] Booth had no issues in receiving money from anyone or group as he did not believe in dirty money.

Even though Booth was mixed up with Lord Rothschild and had Masonic friends, I have no reason to believe that he himself was a mason; he just got mixed up and associated with the wrong type of people. This did him no justice. There is confusion because many Masonic sites list the "General" as a famous mason. However what we have here are two different William Booth's. The William H. Booth, who is listed as a freemason, was married to Mary Kelso Booth [2], The William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, was not a freemason and did not even have a middle name. He was married to Catherine Booth [3] This affirmation therefore is simply not true.
Because of William Booth's association with Lord Rothschild this had led to The Salvation Army coming directly under the influence of freemasonry.
Acording to a reference quoted by many (Wilson, op. cit., p. 92.) The Rothschilds also wielded much influence and power not only in Secret Societies, but also in Christendom’s churches. The Salvation Army under the suggestion of the Rothschilds adopted the Red Shield (Roth-red Schild-shield) for their logo. One history of the Rothschilds remarks, "The Rothschilds had rapidly propelled themselves into a position of immense financial power and political influence. They were an independent force in the life of Europe, accountable to no one and, to a large extent, reliant on no one. Popular lampoons depicted them as the real rulers of Christendom..."

The infiltration of Luciferians has for a very longtime been at the root of Christendom, there are many people we look to who have decieved and are still decieving to this very day.

The connection and partnership between the Salvation Army and freemasonry is stronger today than it ever was. Officially the Salvation Army has stated it recognises that freemasonry is incompatible with Christianity and, therefore officially membership of the craft is not compatible with the Salvation Army. Salvationists are discouraged from being members of the masonic fraternity.
In 1925 General Bramwell Booth sent a letter to every officer in the Salvation Army in which he said: “No language of mine could be too strong in condemning and officer’s affiliation with any society which shuts Him (Christ) outside its temples; and which in its religious ceremonies gives neither Him nor His Name any place…the place where Jesus Christ is not allowed is no place for any Salvation officer.” Ref: http://www.pamphlets.org.au/australia/acts1295.html
Bramwell Booth recognised that in the masonic fraternities are incompatible with Christian teaching, it is masons who conduct ceremonies will have devoted themselves to Lucifer at as stated by Manley P Hall 33 o, "When The Mason learns that the Key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the Mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply this energy." (The Lost Keys Of Freemasonry, p. 48)
The Salvation Army still bears the name of Rothschild today (Red Shield), and there is even greater affiliation with freemasonry. The Salvation Army globally has members (and even officers) who are active freemasons, which is something the Salvation Army has been quiet about, others are in denial. Past Grand Master, Forrest D. Haggard, writes in the book "The Clergy and the Craft" p.134 published in 1930 "Lt. Colonel Reginald E. Clevett of the Salvation army feels "that we who have given time to Masonry have received from it a great deal, even much more then we are able to give."
P.136 Major H. H. Lawson of the Salvation Army, Johnson City, Tennessee: "Masonry has provided the most profound lessons to be found anywhere - and you find them, carefully followed, complimenting your own private faith."

Though Booth issued his condemnation of masonry, his association with the Rothschild's has led the Salvation Army not only to accept Masonry, but even collude with masonry.

Below is a compendium of official information on Salvation Army officials colluding and its affiliations to Freemasonry.

The Compromise is not only with Freemasonry, it is also with the Pope at the Vatican in Rome.

Salvation Army's statement:

The Pope greets the Army's international leaders at an ecumenical gathering the day following his inauguration.

The person who is shaking the Pope's hand is Commissioner Freda Larsson seen with her husband Commissioner John Larsson became chief of the staff, second in command of The Salvation Army worldwide. His wife, Commissioner Freda Larsson, became World Secretary for Women’s Organisations (later Women's Ministries). They are now retired.
Following their comments they state: Great respect and hospitality was extended to The Salvation Army throughout the weekend visit. The General was seated on the front row during Sunday’s inauguration service, also attended by Majors Massimo and Jane Paone (Command Leaders, Italy).
General John Larsson and Commissioner Freda Larsson attended the inauguration of Pope Benedict XVI in Rome as guests of the Vatican. This was the first time a General of The Salvation Army has been present at a papal inauguration.
The Salvation Army purports "The Pope preached a powerful, Christ-centered address using simple gospel imagery. It was pastoral and evangelical. And it was interrupted by applause again and again.’ "
The next day, the Pope met the General and Commissioner Larsson during an ecumenical gathering with Christian leaders and representatives of different faiths.

Then they go on to say:

The General thanked the Pope for his Christ-centered message on the Sunday and assured him of the prayers of Salvationists. The pontiff thanked the General and expressed his hope that all Christians everywhere would work together to meet the challenges of a secular society.
Commissioner Larsson commented: ‘We came away from this historic occasion with a sense that Christian leaders have a renewed willingness to talk to each other and build on our points of unity.
The General added: 'Cardinal Walter Kasper, who is responsible at the Vatican for ecumenical matters, spoke for us all when he commented that the things that unite us are greater than those which divide.
Papal Visit UK 2010
A British Christian, Ecumenical and known for supporting roles and advocates in the pro-homosexual community [see info...] reports "Commissioner Betty Matear of the Salvation Army and the Presidents of the ecumenical grouping Churches Together in England, have welcomed Pope Benedict XVI’s visit"

Commissioner John Matear, the Territorial Commander of the Salvation Army, hoped that the Papal visit would help the churches to "…together proclaim the good news of the Kingdom in word and deed".

Action of Churches Together Scotland reports:
Lieut - Colonel Alan Burns, Scotland Secretary for the Salvation Army says, 'On behalf of Salvationists in Scotland I’m pleased to welcome Pope Benedict XV1. His visit, coinciding with the feast of St Ninian, will give Christians throughout the nation opportunity to collectively celebrate the life and work of the Churches throughout the ages.

Statement from Scottish Christian:
Salvation Army Commissioner Betty Matear, said they hoped Pope Benedict XVI’s visit would be a source of encouragement to all of England’s churches.

Commissioner Betty Matear of the Salvation Army:
After the visit of the Pope to Westminster Abbey for the celebration of evening prayer, I was privileged to be invited to participate in a dinner and discussion hosted by our Government, involving Roman Catholic cardinals and bishops.
It confirmed that engagement of Church and State is critical and productive. It is important that the different parts of the Body of Christ, the Church, talk to one another. The recent visit gives us the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships and to be confident in the gospel of grace we share.
(Comment: No Commissioner Betty Matear the Church of Rome and the ecumenical movement do not share the same Gospel, the Church of Rome and the Pope is an abomination before God).

Together as the Body of Christ we work to express and understand the common faith we share and how we might live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

(Comment: No Commissioner Betty Matear Common Faith with the Pope is not something we should share.)

I want to confirm that our Salvation Army is at the heart of all of this.

In recent days we took time to ask every division to share where we were working ecumenically and, to date, the responses stretch to a 28-page listing! There are no exceptions; in every division there is involvement at every level.

The words of 1 Corinthians 12 regarding the Body of Christ describe our interconnectedness,
our roles and God’s desire and design for unity.
(Commissioner Betty Matear this is false doctrine and pure Blasphamy.)
The following described how the Salvation Army with their involvement with freemasonry has been falling into total apostasy.
Berwick on Tweed - 19th June 1937 Masonic Parade.
© Rosslyn Templars
Since we posted this interesting photograph several months ago we have received several enquiries asking what the organisation parading is or was. A number of suggestions have been offered but none of them were correct. We can now that the parade is being led by a Salvation Army Band and the main body is that of the International Order of Good Templars (IOGT). The Order originated in Syracuse, New York State, USA, in 1852. It later spread to many parts of the world including Scotland. It was conceived as a temperance organisation and remains so to this day.
[4] (Freemasonry Today Magazine Summer 2004 Issue 29) "the majority of Standard Lodge are members of the Salvation Army and are brass band players. Three such lodges were originally founded by Salvationists and in addition to Standard these are Constant trust, No. 7347, and Jubilate, No. 8561.
David B. Mortlock, Retired Bandmaster, Reading Central Salvation Army Band, Standard Lodge, No. 6820, Clerkenwell, London." 
[5] Standard Lodge is now qualified as a Grand Patron for the Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys. Leslie Condon Trust – As with previous masters W.Bro Ray is pleased for the Lodge to support this trust in its assisting young Salvationists from developing countries to achieve their spiritual and musical aspirations.

[6] The Worshipful Master: "Joy, my wife, who has supported me in all my activities within the SA and professional life supports me in my new role as Master. "- W.Bro Ray
Since 17th June 1949 Todays Connection in freemasonry in the UK and Abroad can be seen from the following UK lodge has been founded by Salvation Army members for 58 years.
[7] STANDARD LODGE NO. 6820
on the register of the
United Grand Lodge of England and Wales Consecrated on 17th June 1949, Standard Lodge was formed by a number of members of The Salvation Army as a place where Salvationist brethren could join together in friendship. 58 years on, the lodge continues to go from strength to strength, growing in number, with the same aim and purpose of its founders, sharing fellowship under two flags.
Under its History:

Standard Lodge - its background and raison d'etre
The Lodge was founded in 1949, the first master being the late W.Bro. Charles Harris, PAGStB. The last remaining founder of the Lodge W Bro Will Gale, a grand officer, was promoted to the Grand Lodge Above during 1997. The invitation letter stated that it was desired that the founders should be members of the Salvation Amy or `very near Salvationists' and that the composition of the Lodge thereafter should be on those lines. It was to be a strictly temperance lodge. In obtaining the Army's acknowledgment of the establishment of the Lodge an undertaking was given that the Lodge would not initiate serving officers, it being the Army's belief that, with a full time commitment to the ministry, an officer would not have the available time and resources to participate in masonry.

Indeed, we understand that officers are now obliged to declare membership of freemasonry. The Lodge grew and many Salvationists were initiated into masonry and experienced the very special, rich fellowship which we all continue to enjoy today.

The Lodge of Constant Trust No. 7347, warranted on 2nd June 1954, and Jubilate Lodge No. 8561 were indeed connected with the Salvation Army but they were not the first. The Petition to form the Lodge of Constant Trust gives the following information:
“…the Standard Lodge is unique in its conception and formation, being made up of Salvationists and adherents to this Organisation. Because of this the number of applicants wishing to enter the Craft through the Lodge is very large. The object of forming a Daughter Lodge, which would follow the pattern of the Standard Lodge, is to continue to provide an entry to those who would like to be associated with their fellow-Salvationists, and at the same time prevent the Standard Lodge from becoming too large numerically (already after four and a half years the membership is 70).”
Standard Lodge No. 6820 was warranted on 2nd February 1949. The Petition records that the Founders consisted of Brethren who “are, and have been, connected with the Salvation Army”, although it was not intended to make it an official Salvation Army Lodge. Its purpose was “to provide a Temperance Lodge and meeting place in London for Provincial Brethren now domiciled in London , and Brethren from Overseas, engaed in the work of this world-wide organisation.”
Jubilate Lodge No. 8561 was warranted on 12th December 1973 as “another Lodge to meet [the] needs of Salvationist Masons in the North of England, to meet on common ground as Masons and Salvationists.”
Acording to the The Provincial Grand Lodge of East Lancashire, the Salvation army meet at the three locations, the first location is Jubilate Lodge, No. 8561 Salvation Army meets in East Lancashire– at Shaw Masonic Hall, Kershaw Street , Shaw, Oldham.

Headquarters of Supreme Council 33 Degree is at 10 Duke Street, London. (Known as Grand East by Masons) The building contains a 'Black Room' a 'Red Room' and a 'Chamber of Death' for ritual purposes. No Mason can rise above the 18th Degree without the unanimous agreement of the entire Supreme Council.

BRASS BANDS IN LODGE

Standard Lodge was privileged to use the Indian Temple in Great Queen Street for its fiftieth anniversary celebratory lodge meeting in 1999 and on that occasion we formed a twenty-piece brass band which played in the lodge meeting. The reason for our close association with brass bands is because the majority of Standard Lodge are members of the Salvation Army and are brass band players. Three such lodges were originally founded by Salvationists and in addition to Standard these are Constant trust, No. 7347, and Jubilate, No. 8561.

FREEMASONRY TODAY - Summer 2004 - Issue 29
Reading through the Spring issue of Freemasonry Today I was delighted to see the photograph of the Reading Central band of the Salvation Army during its performance at the 2003 Family Festive Concert in the Grand Temple. This is the second such event they have supported....

FAMILY FESTIVE CONCERT IN GRAND TEMPLE



Reading Central Band of the Salvation Army with some of the Chorus

The Grand Temple was the setting for the second Family Festive Concert, and the 750 Freemasons, family and friends who attended enjoyed an exciting and entertaining evening. Andrew Parmley and Bob Corp-Reader had pulled out all the stops to ensure that the evening cracked along at a tremendous pace, with something to delight everyone.
Frank Renton was kind enough to compere the event and, as before, the Reading Central Band of the Salvation Army soon had the audience on their feet, enthusiastically joining in much-loved, traditional carols. The Anglo-Sierra Leone Choir, ‘dedicated Masons with a passion for singing’, gave a delightful rendition of ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’ and, together with the London Masonic Choir and the Harrodian School Choir, contributed individual pieces as well as supporting the audience. In keeping with the tradition of such occasions, there were four readings to balance the music, all on the theme of Christmas, but from very different angles. Louise Roper, Will Wadham, Russell Race and Sir Tim Rice selected and read some delightful pieces. Tim Rice is Vice-President of the Children’ s Country Holiday Fund, one of the charities that benefited from the evening.

Tents for the local needy children.

19th March 2009 the Worshipful Master presented the Salvation Army with a cheque, which was organised by Wor. Bro. Dawson, to assist them in the purchase of two new tents.

These are for the use of their ‘Guarding And Legions Activities’ group who hold regular camps to give the local underprivileged children experience of the great outdoors. This group is open for any child between the ages of 5 – 17 with many coming from poor socio-economic situations. This donation was greatly helped by the Board of Benevolence through their ‘Dollar for Dollar’ subsidy.

This ‘work’ has been so very compatible with my religious duties, and the great joy for me has been that I have always been able to carry out those Masonic duties as if I was wearing the Salvation Army uniform ‘S’ insignia on my collar.
There will inevitably be those who will say “Ah! But what about the Gospel of Christ – where does that fit into your belief as a Salvationist and your Masonic teaching!

Well, I don’t have a problem with that - but perhaps it could, or maybe should, be for a future discussion or article!
Homeland Security (USA) has in partnership (a player on the same team): The United States Postal Service and the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army’s mission is an International movement of the Universal Christian Church to preach the gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ. My own assessment of Homeland Security is that it is unreliable at best and does not compare to ones own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The reference to the Salvation Army as a partner is a cloak to conceal Homeland Security's own flaws. I do not say these things to cause offense or to dismiss the good that does come from their labor, but they are not operating by Christian teachings. The color warnings of potential terrorist attacks can easily be used to manipulate mass hysteria. There is reason that the Lord taught us that there is no fear in love!

The Honorable Thomas M. Davis III
Congressman from Virginia, United States House of Representatives

On November 17, 2002, Dr. John W. Boettjer, 33°, G.C. (l.), Managing Editor of the Scottish Rite Journal, presented Ill. David Kruger, 33°, then S.G.I.G. in Virginia, a copy, mounted in gold on a walnut plaque, of a tribute to Ill. Kruger as printed in the Congressional Record of September 19, 2002 (Vol. 148, No. 119). Photo: Ill. George A. Page, 33°

Mr. DAVIS: Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Dr. David Kruger, an outstanding citizen of Alexandria, Virginia, who, for over half a century, has served his community
and humanity in many ways.

His downtown Alexandria optometry office is a local landmark patronized by a wide clientele. In fact, Dr. Kruger was among the first healthcare professionals to open his office in a past era
of discrimination to clients of every economic or social status and ethnicity. He is universally recognized as a leader in nearly every community cause and is honored by a caricature in an
Alexandria restaurant as a leading citizen.
Active in a variety of civic causes in Alexandria, he is especially noted for his support of and leadership roles in such community groups as the Red Cross, Boy Scouts, United Givers Fund, Kiwanis (President 1960), and the Salvation Army.
The Knights Templar



Conduits of Patriotism and Heresy (1882-1932)

Dr. Justin Walsh

Patrick Henry Callahan, a member from Boston who was active in the Democratic Party, worked through Secretary of War Newton D. Baker to get the centers approved. Callahan
assured Baker, "There will not be any propaganda or the remotest sort of proselyting [sic]." In return Baker gave the Knights the same privileges that the Young Men's Christian
Association (YMCA) had to establish nonsectarian service clubs. Between June 1917 and June 1919 hundreds of centers were established in the United States, France, Belgium, Italy,
and Germany-places where thousands of Catholics received the sacraments and enjoyed recreational amenities. These canteens were affectionately called "Caseys" by additional thousands of non-Catholic servicemen who received succor and "spiritual comfort without evangelization" in the spirit for which the Order was well known.

Ibid., pp.197-198.
The importance of this program and its ecumenical approach was spelled out by Cardinal Gibbons on July 4, 1917. "1 want to congratulate the Order for ...caring for the temporal and spiritual wants of the soldiers, regardless of their creed or membership in your Order," Gibbons wrote to Supreme. "Your [service center program] should forever stamp [you] as men of practical forethought, timely patriotism, and true Christian charity." In 1918 Bishop Peter J. Muldoon of Rockford, chairman of the National Catholic Welfare Conference (NCWC), was charged with coordination of all war work by the Church. Bishop Muldoon was even more effusive in praising the service program, telling Supreme:
[You] are the most important body of Catholic laymen that has ever existed in this country.... The Catholic Church is looking to you to make a record, you Grand Knights of the Gospel
of Jesus....The Knights of Columbus are doing a sacred work, a truly priestly work ....You are one in Christ and in His Prayer. You have behind you a united Catholic people. Therefore go forth for Jesus Christ and the Glory of the Church.

Ibid., letter from Gibbons, p.210, letter from Muldoon, p.219.
Such praise was sufficient to convince doubting Knights that the Order truly worked on behalf of God and Country. So after the Armistice in 1918 the Knights expanded their overseas operation to include occupation forces in Belgium, Italy, and Germany. Over the July 4 holiday in 1919 an ecumenical series of musical shows was presented in Antwerp. The theater was provided by the Catholic Knights, the entertainment by the
Protestant YMCA, and the orchestra by the Jewish Welfare Board. It was said at the time that the YMCA gained fame through its canteen service, the Salvation Army
through its coffee and donuts, and the Knights of Columbus through its sponsorship of athletic contests (boxing matches, basketball, and softball). In 1920 Secretary of War Newton Baker, a Mason, awarded the Distinguished Service Cross to Supreme Knight James Flaherty in recognition of contributions to the war effort by the Order.

Lodges light up Christmas

Del Woodford and Kay Henderson from the Salvation Army (both left) gratefully accept a hamper of goodies from Lodge Lismore City United members Tom Maxwell and Ken Hirst, and Lodge Eltham member Fred Trow and his wife Maisie.
Local Freemasons from Lodge Lismore City United and Lodge Eltham have joined forces to help local families this Christmas, donating a hamper of goodies to the Salvation Army.
The members wanted to spread a little joy, and are well aware of how important the Salvation Army's Christmas Appeal is to local people struggling to make ends meet.
"All these small donations add up and at Christmas time we are able to feed about 80 families and distribute toys to around 250 kids," said Del Woodford from the Salvation Army. "There are lot of families that would otherwise have nothing and we couldn't continue our valuable work without this sort of support."
The donation is just one of the many ways local Freemasons support the community throughout the year. Younger men are always wanted to join the local Lodges and there are plenty of social and community activities new members can participate in. It's a great way to give something back to the community and new members will be made very welcome.

District Masonic Trusts

Wellington Villages Trust made presentation to the Board covering all Masonic Retirement Villages in the Central Division. It was stated that lack of Government funding was affecting the viability of the retirement Homes. It was noted that Presbyterians, Methodists, RSA, Salvation Army and some Catholic Orders have sold their retirement homes for this reason. Mr Warwick Dunn, Chief Executive for Wellington Villages Trust thanked Freemasons for their ongoing support.
The Lodge also assisted the Salvation Army's Red Shield Appeal in May, door knocking in the Hawthorn area and collecting more than $9,000.
The brethren of the Operative Lodge have left their mark all over the world. Their work is their legacy and here is but a few: The Paris Opera House, the entire Thames Embankment, the London Bridge (now in Nevada U.S.A.) the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the State Capital Building in Austin, Texas, the foundations and lower level of the Freemasons Hall Edinburgh. In the Granite City there is Union Street, the C.G.U. Building, the Town House, the Salvation Army Citadel, the Marschal College, which is the second largest granite building in the world. And finally, the Aberdeen Masonic Temple, who’s history is also outlined on this web site.

17th Masonic District Lends Support to Manning
Salvation Army Kettle, Saturday, 4 December 2004




Members of the 17th Masonic District (Greater Portland) volunteered to assist the Salvation Army, Portland Corps with its Holiday fundraising efforts by manning a kettle for a 12 hour period at Shaw's Supermarket in Falmouth. Two Masons per
one hour shift spanning the 12 hours is all it took. The Masons and one lady who volunteered their time enjoyed the interaction with the public and felt good about their contribution to the community and to the Salvation Army.

All DeMolay chapters observe an annual "Day of Comfort" between Thanksgiving and Christmas to emphasize the needs of others. Each chapter has its own program of service. Typical projects include volunteering at a nursing home, raising money for local and national charities, community clean-ups and renewal work parties. To raise funds for charity, members participate in various sales, fairs and community festivals. They conduct walk-a-thons, bike-a-thons, all-night dances, and other programs to encourage donors to pledge charitable gifts. Some chapters work at telethons; others ring bells for the Salvation Army. Many chapters participate in food banks and clothing drives, while others volunteer with Habitat for Humanity.

In the cold that accompanied the December 20th snow storm,
the volunteers from our Lodge found the warmth of holiday giving inside the Salvation Army Holiday Store at Somerset Square. On this morning, GPD dropped off the hundreds of unwrapped toys, which they had collected for distribution to help others have a happier holiday. Those shown are, from the left: John Heacock, Harold Rosenthal, Herb Grommeck and Arnie Grot.
After my contact with the Salvation Army they state:
From WebTHQ-Admin@salvationarmy.org.uk
Christianity has fundamental problems with Freemasonry. At its most basic level, any loyalty that claims to precede or conflict with a Christian's loyalty to Christ has no place in a Christian's life. Similarly, any way of life that would seek to put its own members' interests before those of other people in need does not square with Christ's teaching and example. Some Christians would go so far as to say that the lore of Freemasonry also exhibits elements of paganism.
As a Christian church, The Salvation Army prohibits its officers (ie full-time ordained ministers of religion) from membership of such secret societies. However, membership of the Freemasons is not at present explicitly proscribed for non-officer Salvationists (ie members of its worshipping congregations).

Salvation Army Webmail Administrator.
As the offical statement from the Salvation Army (USA): Unchristian organisations. Officers are not permitted to be members of any order, organisation, or secret society which requires that oaths be taken or credence be given to statements of belief, principle or practice clearly contrary to the spirit and teaching of Scripture.
Clearly this is a strange statement, the Salvation Army do not promote a true conservative Gospel message but a message that has been contaminated with ecumenism, freemasonry and various inter-faith groups.

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works (iniquity), there is none that doeth good. (Psalms 14:1)
What this passage of the Bible says is that God wants us to know that He exists and is not willing to let anyone get away with compromise, for to compromise would mean you are hiding behind a lie. Such a person declares that there is a God but lives as if God actually didn't exist, or that he simply isn't bothered. Though they may engage in charitable works, God does not consider their deeds righteous, in fact (as the prophet Isaiah wrote), their works are as filthy menstrual (Hebrew: iddah) rags (Hebrew: beged) (Isaiah 64:6) strongs reference filthy H5708 and rags H899.
The Masonic Order is one such example. To be a Mason one must accept that there is a god, and engage in philanthropic endeavours, yet the very nature of Freemasonry is shrouded in
secrecy, occultic rituals and, at its highest levels is, according to some of it's highest ranking leaders, Luciferian. These are fools that hide behind a lie (as if there were no God, or that he simply wasn't bothered) in order to justify their abominable works/iniquities.
They think by doing good works they will gain favour from the Lord, yet they choose to compromise the gospel in the name of humanitarian aid, thus they become futile in their deeds and their good works are not accounted as righteous because they have forsaken the very things that God has said.
Having dealings with the occult the Bible says:
”For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” (1 Sam. 15:23)

Audio recording of William Booth

William Booth Sons And Daughters Of Misery.
General William Booth (1829-1912), founder of the Salvation Army c.1900

The photograph above shows Booth with two of his grandchildren. John Wesley’s life and ministry has been a source of inspiration to many within the evangelical tradition. Some churches may not have the name Methodist in their title, but are nevertheless members of the Wesleyan family .
William Booth was a minister of the Methodist New Connexion before founding the Salvation Army. Booth’s travelling ministry, organisational skill, outreach to the poor and patriarchal image identifies him as a true ‘Gospel Son’ of John Wesley, Booth is buried next to his wife Catherine.
Even when the gospel was preached it was also being undermined by William Booth's acquaintances, especially with one luciferian, in particular Lord Rothschild (a high ranking freemason who appreciated Booth's work so much he gave him £1000) [1] Booth had no issues in receiving money from anyone or group as he did not believe in dirty money.

Even though Booth was mixed up with Lord Rothschild and had Masonic friends, I have no reason to believe that he himself was a mason; he just got mixed up and associated with the wrong type of people. This did him no justice. There is confusion because many Masonic sites list the "General" as a famous mason. However what we have here are two different William Booth's. The William H. Booth, who is listed as a freemason, was married to Mary Kelso Booth [2], The William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, was not a freemason and did not even have a middle name. He was married to Catherine Booth [3] This affirmation therefore is simply not true.
Because of William Booth's association with Lord Rothschild this had led to The Salvation Army coming directly under the influence of freemasonry.
Acording to a reference quoted by many (Wilson, op. cit., p. 92.) The Rothschilds also wielded much influence and power not only in Secret Societies, but also in Christendom’s churches. The Salvation Army under the suggestion of the Rothschilds adopted the Red Shield (Roth-red Schild-shield) for their logo. One history of the Rothschilds remarks, "The Rothschilds had rapidly propelled themselves into a position of immense financial power and political influence. They were an independent force in the life of Europe, accountable to no one and, to a large extent, reliant on no one. Popular lampoons depicted them as the real rulers of Christendom..."

The infiltration of Luciferians has for a very longtime been at the root of Christendom, there are many people we look to who have decieved and are still decieving to this very day.

The connection and partnership between the Salvation Army and freemasonry is stronger today than it ever was. Officially the Salvation Army has stated it recognises that freemasonry is incompatible with Christianity and, therefore officially membership of the craft is not compatible with the Salvation Army. Salvationists are discouraged from being members of the masonic fraternity.
In 1925 General Bramwell Booth sent a letter to every officer in the Salvation Army in which he said: “No language of mine could be too strong in condemning and officer’s affiliation with any society which shuts Him (Christ) outside its temples; and which in its religious ceremonies gives neither Him nor His Name any place…the place where Jesus Christ is not allowed is no place for any Salvation officer.” Ref: http://www.pamphlets.org.au/australia/acts1295.html
Bramwell Booth recognised that in the masonic fraternities are incompatible with Christian teaching, it is masons who conduct ceremonies will have devoted themselves to Lucifer at as stated by Manley P Hall 33 o, "When The Mason learns that the Key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the Mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply this energy." (The Lost Keys Of Freemasonry, p. 48)
The Salvation Army still bears the name of Rothschild today (Red Shield), and there is even greater affiliation with freemasonry. The Salvation Army globally has members (and even officers) who are active freemasons, which is something the Salvation Army has been quiet about, others are in denial. Past Grand Master, Forrest D. Haggard, writes in the book "The Clergy and the Craft" p.134 published in 1930 "Lt. Colonel Reginald E. Clevett of the Salvation army feels "that we who have given time to Masonry have received from it a great deal, even much more then we are able to give."
P.136 Major H. H. Lawson of the Salvation Army, Johnson City, Tennessee: "Masonry has provided the most profound lessons to be found anywhere - and you find them, carefully followed, complimenting your own private faith."

Though Booth issued his condemnation of masonry, his association with the Rothschild's has led the Salvation Army not only to accept Masonry, but even collude with masonry.

Below is a compendium of official information on Salvation Army officials colluding and its affiliations to Freemasonry.

The Compromise is not only with Freemasonry, it is also with the Pope at the Vatican in Rome.

Salvation Army's statement:

The Pope greets the Army's international leaders at an ecumenical gathering the day following his inauguration.
Photograph by Arturo Mari courtesy of L'Osservatore Romano.
The person who is shaking the Pope's hand is Commissioner Freda Larsson seen with her husband Commissioner John Larsson became chief of the staff, second in command of The Salvation Army worldwide. His wife, Commissioner Freda Larsson, became World Secretary for Women’s Organisations (later Women's Ministries). They are now retired.
Following their comments they state: Great respect and hospitality was extended to The Salvation Army throughout the weekend visit. The General was seated on the front row during Sunday’s inauguration service, also attended by Majors Massimo and Jane Paone (Command Leaders, Italy).
General John Larsson and Commissioner Freda Larsson attended the inauguration of Pope Benedict XVI in Rome as guests of the Vatican. This was the first time a General of The Salvation Army has been present at a papal inauguration.
The Salvation Army purports "The Pope preached a powerful, Christ-centered address using simple gospel imagery. It was pastoral and evangelical. And it was interrupted by applause again and again.’ "
The next day, the Pope met the General and Commissioner Larsson during an ecumenical gathering with Christian leaders and representatives of different faiths.

Then they go on to say:

The General thanked the Pope for his Christ-centered message on the Sunday and assured him of the prayers of Salvationists. The pontiff thanked the General and expressed his hope that all Christians everywhere would work together to meet the challenges of a secular society.
Commissioner Larsson commented: ‘We came away from this historic occasion with a sense that Christian leaders have a renewed willingness to talk to each other and build on our points of unity.
The General added: 'Cardinal Walter Kasper, who is responsible at the Vatican for ecumenical matters, spoke for us all when he commented that the things that unite us are greater than those which divide.
Papal Visit UK 2010
A British Christian, Ecumenical and known for supporting roles and advocates in the pro-homosexual community [see info...] reports "Commissioner Betty Matear of the Salvation Army and the Presidents of the ecumenical grouping Churches Together in England, have welcomed Pope Benedict XVI’s visit"

Commissioner John Matear, the Territorial Commander of the Salvation Army, hoped that the Papal visit would help the churches to "…together proclaim the good news of the Kingdom in word and deed".

Action of Churches Together Scotland reports:
Lieut - Colonel Alan Burns, Scotland Secretary for the Salvation Army says, 'On behalf of Salvationists in Scotland I’m pleased to welcome Pope Benedict XV1. His visit, coinciding with the feast of St Ninian, will give Christians throughout the nation opportunity to collectively celebrate the life and work of the Churches throughout the ages.

Statement from Scottish Christian:
Salvation Army Commissioner Betty Matear, said they hoped Pope Benedict XVI’s visit would be a source of encouragement to all of England’s churches.

Commissioner Betty Matear of the Salvation Army:
After the visit of the Pope to Westminster Abbey for the celebration of evening prayer, I was privileged to be invited to participate in a dinner and discussion hosted by our Government, involving Roman Catholic cardinals and bishops.
It confirmed that engagement of Church and State is critical and productive. It is important that the different parts of the Body of Christ, the Church, talk to one another. The recent visit gives us the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships and to be confident in the gospel of grace we share.
(Comment: No Commissioner Betty Matear the Church of Rome and the ecumenical movement do not share the same Gospel, the Church of Rome and the Pope is an abomination before God).

Together as the Body of Christ we work to express and understand the common faith we share and how we might live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

(Comment: No Commissioner Betty Matear Common Faith with the Pope is not something we should share.)

I want to confirm that our Salvation Army is at the heart of all of this.

In recent days we took time to ask every division to share where we were working ecumenically and, to date, the responses stretch to a 28-page listing! There are no exceptions; in every division there is involvement at every level.

The words of 1 Corinthians 12 regarding the Body of Christ describe our interconnectedness,
our roles and God’s desire and design for unity.
(Commissioner Betty Matear this is false doctrine and pure Blasphamy.)
The following described how the Salvation Army with their involvement with freemasonry has been falling into total apostasy.
Berwick on Tweed - 19th June 1937 Masonic Parade.
© Rosslyn Templars
Since we posted this interesting photograph several months ago we have received several enquiries asking what the organisation parading is or was. A number of suggestions have been offered but none of them were correct. We can now that the parade is being led by a Salvation Army Band and the main body is that of the International Order of Good Templars (IOGT). The Order originated in Syracuse, New York State, USA, in 1852. It later spread to many parts of the world including Scotland. It was conceived as a temperance organisation and remains so to this day.
[4] (Freemasonry Today Magazine Summer 2004 Issue 29) "the majority of Standard Lodge are members of the Salvation Army and are brass band players. Three such lodges were originally founded by Salvationists and in addition to Standard these are Constant trust, No. 7347, and Jubilate, No. 8561.
David B. Mortlock, Retired Bandmaster, Reading Central Salvation Army Band, Standard Lodge, No. 6820, Clerkenwell, London." 
[5] Standard Lodge is now qualified as a Grand Patron for the Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys. Leslie Condon Trust – As with previous masters W.Bro Ray is pleased for the Lodge to support this trust in its assisting young Salvationists from developing countries to achieve their spiritual and musical aspirations.

[6] The Worshipful Master: "Joy, my wife, who has supported me in all my activities within the SA and professional life supports me in my new role as Master. "- W.Bro Ray
Since 17th June 1949 Todays Connection in freemasonry in the UK and Abroad can be seen from the following UK lodge has been founded by Salvation Army members for 58 years.
[7] STANDARD LODGE NO. 6820
on the register of the
United Grand Lodge of England and Wales Consecrated on 17th June 1949, Standard Lodge was formed by a number of members of The Salvation Army as a place where Salvationist brethren could join together in friendship. 58 years on, the lodge continues to go from strength to strength, growing in number, with the same aim and purpose of its founders, sharing fellowship under two flags.
Under its History:

Standard Lodge - its background and raison d'etre
The Lodge was founded in 1949, the first master being the late W.Bro. Charles Harris, PAGStB. The last remaining founder of the Lodge W Bro Will Gale, a grand officer, was promoted to the Grand Lodge Above during 1997. The invitation letter stated that it was desired that the founders should be members of the Salvation Amy or `very near Salvationists' and that the composition of the Lodge thereafter should be on those lines. It was to be a strictly temperance lodge. In obtaining the Army's acknowledgment of the establishment of the Lodge an undertaking was given that the Lodge would not initiate serving officers, it being the Army's belief that, with a full time commitment to the ministry, an officer would not have the available time and resources to participate in masonry.

Indeed, we understand that officers are now obliged to declare membership of freemasonry. The Lodge grew and many Salvationists were initiated into masonry and experienced the very special, rich fellowship which we all continue to enjoy today.

The Lodge of Constant Trust No. 7347, warranted on 2nd June 1954, and Jubilate Lodge No. 8561 were indeed connected with the Salvation Army but they were not the first. The Petition to form the Lodge of Constant Trust gives the following information:
“…the Standard Lodge is unique in its conception and formation, being made up of Salvationists and adherents to this Organisation. Because of this the number of applicants wishing to enter the Craft through the Lodge is very large. The object of forming a Daughter Lodge, which would follow the pattern of the Standard Lodge, is to continue to provide an entry to those who would like to be associated with their fellow-Salvationists, and at the same time prevent the Standard Lodge from becoming too large numerically (already after four and a half years the membership is 70).”
Standard Lodge No. 6820 was warranted on 2nd February 1949. The Petition records that the Founders consisted of Brethren who “are, and have been, connected with the Salvation Army”, although it was not intended to make it an official Salvation Army Lodge. Its purpose was “to provide a Temperance Lodge and meeting place in London for Provincial Brethren now domiciled in London , and Brethren from Overseas, engaed in the work of this world-wide organisation.”
Jubilate Lodge No. 8561 was warranted on 12th December 1973 as “another Lodge to meet [the] needs of Salvationist Masons in the North of England, to meet on common ground as Masons and Salvationists.”
Acording to the The Provincial Grand Lodge of East Lancashire, the Salvation army meet at the three locations, the first location is Jubilate Lodge, No. 8561 Salvation Army meets in East Lancashire– at Shaw Masonic Hall, Kershaw Street , Shaw, Oldham.

The Lodge of Constant Trust, No. 7347, the Salvation Army meets at 10 Duke Street, St James, London that the Salvation Army is confermed by the United Grand Lodge of England to be part of this Lodge the Freemasonry Databank states concerning the Lodge of Constant Trust:
Headquarters of Supreme Council 33 Degree is at 10 Duke Street, London. (Known as Grand East by Masons) The building contains a 'Black Room' a 'Red Room' and a 'Chamber of Death' for ritual purposes. No Mason can rise above the 18th Degree without the unanimous agreement of the entire Supreme Council.

BRASS BANDS IN LODGE

Standard Lodge was privileged to use the Indian Temple in Great Queen Street for its fiftieth anniversary celebratory lodge meeting in 1999 and on that occasion we formed a twenty-piece brass band which played in the lodge meeting. The reason for our close association with brass bands is because the majority of Standard Lodge are members of the Salvation Army and are brass band players. Three such lodges were originally founded by Salvationists and in addition to Standard these are Constant trust, No. 7347, and Jubilate, No. 8561.

FREEMASONRY TODAY A MAGAZINE FOR THE FREEMASON

FREEMASONRY TODAY - Summer 2004 - Issue 29
Reading through the Spring issue of Freemasonry Today I was delighted to see the photograph of the Reading Central band of the Salvation Army during its performance at the 2003 Family Festive Concert in the Grand Temple. This is the second such event they have supported....

FAMILY FESTIVE CONCERT IN GRAND TEMPLE



Reading Central Band of the Salvation Army with some of the Chorus

The Grand Temple was the setting for the second Family Festive Concert, and the 750 Freemasons, family and friends who attended enjoyed an exciting and entertaining evening. Andrew Parmley and Bob Corp-Reader had pulled out all the stops to ensure that the evening cracked along at a tremendous pace, with something to delight everyone.
Frank Renton was kind enough to compere the event and, as before, the Reading Central Band of the Salvation Army soon had the audience on their feet, enthusiastically joining in much-loved, traditional carols. The Anglo-Sierra Leone Choir, ‘dedicated Masons with a passion for singing’, gave a delightful rendition of ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’ and, together with the London Masonic Choir and the Harrodian School Choir, contributed individual pieces as well as supporting the audience. In keeping with the tradition of such occasions, there were four readings to balance the music, all on the theme of Christmas, but from very different angles. Louise Roper, Will Wadham, Russell Race and Sir Tim Rice selected and read some delightful pieces. Tim Rice is Vice-President of the Children’ s Country Holiday Fund, one of the charities that benefited from the evening.

Tents for the local needy children.

19th March 2009 the Worshipful Master presented the Salvation Army with a cheque, which was organised by Wor. Bro. Dawson, to assist them in the purchase of two new tents.

These are for the use of their ‘Guarding And Legions Activities’ group who hold regular camps to give the local underprivileged children experience of the great outdoors. This group is open for any child between the ages of 5 – 17 with many coming from poor socio-economic situations. This donation was greatly helped by the Board of Benevolence through their ‘Dollar for Dollar’ subsidy.

This ‘work’ has been so very compatible with my religious duties, and the great joy for me has been that I have always been able to carry out those Masonic duties as if I was wearing the Salvation Army uniform ‘S’ insignia on my collar.
There will inevitably be those who will say “Ah! But what about the Gospel of Christ – where does that fit into your belief as a Salvationist and your Masonic teaching!

Well, I don’t have a problem with that - but perhaps it could, or maybe should, be for a future discussion or article!
Homeland Security (USA) has in partnership (a player on the same team): The United States Postal Service and the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army’s mission is an International movement of the Universal Christian Church to preach the gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ. My own assessment of Homeland Security is that it is unreliable at best and does not compare to ones own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The reference to the Salvation Army as a partner is a cloak to conceal Homeland Security's own flaws. I do not say these things to cause offense or to dismiss the good that does come from their labor, but they are not operating by Christian teachings. The color warnings of potential terrorist attacks can easily be used to manipulate mass hysteria. There is reason that the Lord taught us that there is no fear in love!

The Honorable Thomas M. Davis III
Congressman from Virginia, United States House of Representatives

On November 17, 2002, Dr. John W. Boettjer, 33°, G.C. (l.), Managing Editor of the Scottish Rite Journal, presented Ill. David Kruger, 33°, then S.G.I.G. in Virginia, a copy, mounted in gold on a walnut plaque, of a tribute to Ill. Kruger as printed in the Congressional Record of September 19, 2002 (Vol. 148, No. 119). Photo: Ill. George A. Page, 33°

Mr. DAVIS: Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Dr. David Kruger, an outstanding citizen of Alexandria, Virginia, who, for over half a century, has served his community
and humanity in many ways.

His downtown Alexandria optometry office is a local landmark patronized by a wide clientele. In fact, Dr. Kruger was among the first healthcare professionals to open his office in a past era
of discrimination to clients of every economic or social status and ethnicity. He is universally recognized as a leader in nearly every community cause and is honored by a caricature in an
Alexandria restaurant as a leading citizen.
Active in a variety of civic causes in Alexandria, he is especially noted for his support of and leadership roles in such community groups as the Red Cross, Boy Scouts, United Givers Fund, Kiwanis (President 1960), and the Salvation Army.
The Knights Templar



Conduits of Patriotism and Heresy (1882-1932)

Dr. Justin Walsh

Patrick Henry Callahan, a member from Boston who was active in the Democratic Party, worked through Secretary of War Newton D. Baker to get the centers approved. Callahan
assured Baker, "There will not be any propaganda or the remotest sort of proselyting [sic]." In return Baker gave the Knights the same privileges that the Young Men's Christian
Association (YMCA) had to establish nonsectarian service clubs. Between June 1917 and June 1919 hundreds of centers were established in the United States, France, Belgium, Italy,
and Germany-places where thousands of Catholics received the sacraments and enjoyed recreational amenities. These canteens were affectionately called "Caseys" by additional thousands of non-Catholic servicemen who received succor and "spiritual comfort without evangelization" in the spirit for which the Order was well known.

Ibid., pp.197-198.
The importance of this program and its ecumenical approach was spelled out by Cardinal Gibbons on July 4, 1917. "1 want to congratulate the Order for ...caring for the temporal and spiritual wants of the soldiers, regardless of their creed or membership in your Order," Gibbons wrote to Supreme. "Your [service center program] should forever stamp [you] as men of practical forethought, timely patriotism, and true Christian charity." In 1918 Bishop Peter J. Muldoon of Rockford, chairman of the National Catholic Welfare Conference (NCWC), was charged with coordination of all war work by the Church. Bishop Muldoon was even more effusive in praising the service program, telling Supreme:
[You] are the most important body of Catholic laymen that has ever existed in this country.... The Catholic Church is looking to you to make a record, you Grand Knights of the Gospel
of Jesus....The Knights of Columbus are doing a sacred work, a truly priestly work ....You are one in Christ and in His Prayer. You have behind you a united Catholic people. Therefore go forth for Jesus Christ and the Glory of the Church.

Ibid., letter from Gibbons, p.210, letter from Muldoon, p.219.
Such praise was sufficient to convince doubting Knights that the Order truly worked on behalf of God and Country. So after the Armistice in 1918 the Knights expanded their overseas operation to include occupation forces in Belgium, Italy, and Germany. Over the July 4 holiday in 1919 an ecumenical series of musical shows was presented in Antwerp. The theater was provided by the Catholic Knights, the entertainment by the
Protestant YMCA, and the orchestra by the Jewish Welfare Board. It was said at the time that the YMCA gained fame through its canteen service, the Salvation Army
through its coffee and donuts, and the Knights of Columbus through its sponsorship of athletic contests (boxing matches, basketball, and softball). In 1920 Secretary of War Newton Baker, a Mason, awarded the Distinguished Service Cross to Supreme Knight James Flaherty in recognition of contributions to the war effort by the Order.

Lodges light up Christmas

Del Woodford and Kay Henderson from the Salvation Army (both left) gratefully accept a hamper of goodies from Lodge Lismore City United members Tom Maxwell and Ken Hirst, and Lodge Eltham member Fred Trow and his wife Maisie.
Local Freemasons from Lodge Lismore City United and Lodge Eltham have joined forces to help local families this Christmas, donating a hamper of goodies to the Salvation Army.
The members wanted to spread a little joy, and are well aware of how important the Salvation Army's Christmas Appeal is to local people struggling to make ends meet.
"All these small donations add up and at Christmas time we are able to feed about 80 families and distribute toys to around 250 kids," said Del Woodford from the Salvation Army. "There are lot of families that would otherwise have nothing and we couldn't continue our valuable work without this sort of support."
The donation is just one of the many ways local Freemasons support the community throughout the year. Younger men are always wanted to join the local Lodges and there are plenty of social and community activities new members can participate in. It's a great way to give something back to the community and new members will be made very welcome.

District Masonic Trusts

Wellington Villages Trust made presentation to the Board covering all Masonic Retirement Villages in the Central Division. It was stated that lack of Government funding was affecting the viability of the retirement Homes. It was noted that Presbyterians, Methodists, RSA, Salvation Army and some Catholic Orders have sold their retirement homes for this reason. Mr Warwick Dunn, Chief Executive for Wellington Villages Trust thanked Freemasons for their ongoing support.
The Lodge also assisted the Salvation Army's Red Shield Appeal in May, door knocking in the Hawthorn area and collecting more than $9,000.
The brethren of the Operative Lodge have left their mark all over the world. Their work is their legacy and here is but a few: The Paris Opera House, the entire Thames Embankment, the London Bridge (now in Nevada U.S.A.) the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the State Capital Building in Austin, Texas, the foundations and lower level of the Freemasons Hall Edinburgh. In the Granite City there is Union Street, the C.G.U. Building, the Town House, the Salvation Army Citadel, the Marschal College, which is the second largest granite building in the world. And finally, the Aberdeen Masonic Temple, who’s history is also outlined on this web site.

Salvation Army Kettle, Saturday, 4 December 2004




Members of the 17th Masonic District (Greater Portland) volunteered to assist the Salvation Army, Portland Corps with its Holiday fundraising efforts by manning a kettle for a 12 hour period at Shaw's Supermarket in Falmouth. Two Masons per
one hour shift spanning the 12 hours is all it took. The Masons and one lady who volunteered their time enjoyed the interaction with the public and felt good about their contribution to the community and to the Salvation Army.

Staffing the phones for the Salvation Army's Coats for Kids telethon, officers and members of Lamberton Lodge No. 476, Lancaster, raised $8,620. Picking up on the spirit of giving, two months later the lodges of the 1st Masonic District contributed
another $4,000 to the Salvation Army. At work by the phones at WGAL-TV, Lancaster, are the brethren of Lamberton Lodge (l-r): Front ­ Edward R. Lloyd, Chaplain; James E. Gustafson, W.M.; Douglas M.

All DeMolay chapters observe an annual "Day of Comfort" between Thanksgiving and Christmas to emphasize the needs of others. Each chapter has its own program of service. Typical projects include volunteering at a nursing home, raising money for local and national charities, community clean-ups and renewal work parties. To raise funds for charity, members participate in various sales, fairs and community festivals. They conduct walk-a-thons, bike-a-thons, all-night dances, and other programs to encourage donors to pledge charitable gifts. Some chapters work at telethons; others ring bells for the Salvation Army. Many chapters participate in food banks and clothing drives, while others volunteer with Habitat for Humanity.

Lodge No. 25 A. F. & A.M.


In the cold that accompanied the December 20th snow storm,
the volunteers from our Lodge found the warmth of holiday giving inside the Salvation Army Holiday Store at Somerset Square. On this morning, GPD dropped off the hundreds of unwrapped toys, which they had collected for distribution to help others have a happier holiday. Those shown are, from the left: John Heacock, Harold Rosenthal, Herb Grommeck and Arnie Grot.
After my contact with the Salvation Army they state:
From WebTHQ-Admin@salvationarmy.org.uk
Christianity has fundamental problems with Freemasonry. At its most basic level, any loyalty that claims to precede or conflict with a Christian's loyalty to Christ has no place in a Christian's life. Similarly, any way of life that would seek to put its own members' interests before those of other people in need does not square with Christ's teaching and example. Some Christians would go so far as to say that the lore of Freemasonry also exhibits elements of paganism.
As a Christian church, The Salvation Army prohibits its officers (ie full-time ordained ministers of religion) from membership of such secret societies. However, membership of the Freemasons is not at present explicitly proscribed for non-officer Salvationists (ie members of its worshipping congregations).

Salvation Army Webmail Administrator.
As the offical statement from the Salvation Army (USA): Unchristian organisations. Officers are not permitted to be members of any order, organisation, or secret society which requires that oaths be taken or credence be given to statements of belief, principle or practice clearly contrary to the spirit and teaching of Scripture.
Clearly this is a strange statement, the Salvation Army do not promote a true conservative Gospel message but a message that has been contaminated with ecumenism, freemasonry and various inter-faith groups.

Special Salvation Army Partnership:
For our partnership with the Salvation Army we have arranged a special, greatly discounted enrollment that is one-third of our standard rate. While the entire curriculum is identical to our traditional enrollment, to help minimize expense to friends of the Salvation Army we have not included our two books (The Way of the Master and Out of the Comfort Zone), our "Two-in-One" CD (Hell's Best Kept Secret and True and False Conversion), or The Evidence Bible normally included at Graduation. You can purchase these items separately if you would like through LivingWaters.com. Those enrolled through this special Salvation Army partnership will still receive our normal student discounts.
