The Pagan (Satanic) Temptation
#1
So anyone who has done a bit of research into the occult and the Mysteries Schools of ancient days knows they have never gone way, but simply gone underground, and this is still present in many secret societies. Denial of this is simply due to ignorance and is how the system of initiates works.

After reading The Pagan Temptation ( a good review of the book: http://armchair_academic.homestead.com/PaganTemp.html ) by Thomas Molnar (Catholic scholar) everything sort of crystallized for me and I realized how wide spread and pervasive paganism is... and how Christianity is the only religion that stands in direct opposition to this. It seems apparent these Mystery schools are inherently Satanic...how could they not be? They worship knowledge along with the forces in the Universe and this is the one of the exact reasons for God's wrath, that is, not attributing these things to Him and Him alone. These Mystery Schools teach of Man becoming gods, through the old "divine spark" theory and the world being an illusion, something to overcome... that the human's Will is what gives him power to be divine (a Satanic principle) interestingly this is found through out all ancient religions, including those of the Far East which had their own esoteric schools within the exoteric religions.

I've done a lot of researching on the occult (gotta know the enemy) and this documentary was very good, even getting interviews with the successor to Manly P. Hall... denying these connections at this point seems foolish...

Secret Mysteries of America's Beginnings 2 - Riddles in Stone - Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C.:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3924304351562745462&hl=en#

Basically, the documentary talks about the architecture of Washington D.C., curious indeed because it is rife with references to ancient gods including Baal. All the cornerstones for these buildings were laid by Freemasons, employing an ancient pagan ritual to lay the stones.


So the question here is, is this the real threat? If Satan was cast down to Earth, is he considered its "ruler" not its ultimate ruler of of course, but to me it seems that anything that is not Christianity must be inherently Satanic, and upon investigation all other schools of religious thought are pagan in nature. The New Age (actually it should be called the Old Age) movement has been successful in ensnaring people in a wishy-washy, do what feels right,  syncretist nightmare, leaving millions blissfully unaware of the Truth. The most heinous form of this syncretism is that with Christ and paganism... proposing a Pagan Christ which ties into the Rosicrucian beliefs... the rose being a symbol of the occult and the cross of Christ : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose-Cross  and those of the Gnostics (thanks, Elaine Pagels!) or Esoteric Christians http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esoteric_Christian  which claim Christianity as being a Mystery Religion.  While historically this theory has been refuted many times in the past hundred or so years, this thought is flourishing in the world.


The Enlightenment is what brought about a renew interest in the Mystery Schools, and is where modern day secret societies had their beginnings... and explains why the people with the most power on the world stage today are often in high degree of these secret orders. The idea of humanism and man becoming gods... or perfected men being able to form a Republic in the styling of Plato (who, incidentally, was the first person who mentioned Atlantis, or what could be seen as Utopia, and where Communism finds its ideas) This is also where Modernism started to form. The more one studies these things, the more connected they become and the threat of paganism should not be underestimated, because it seems that it IS the threat.

Thoughts?

You can't go wrong with Thomas Molnar!  There is an intelligent man if there ever was one.  I was just reading some of his work this week.  If you liked his book on the pagan temptation, you can find essays by him here:  .  http://www.isi.org/bios/bio.aspx?id=f7129f65-3b6e-44f6-b02e-e6148493e653&source=Spotlight&select=none

Yes, Masonic and other gnostic secret societies often spawned these neo-pagan ideas.  We shouldn't exaggerate the conspiratorial role (as neo-gnostic shysters people like Dan Brown do), but we cannot/must not deny it either!  Gary Potter does a good job covering the gnostic threat here:  http://catholicism.org/davincicode-rebuttal.html  For the specific role of Jews in fomenting virtually every anti-Catholic movement in the last 2,000 years, see E. Michael Jones' recent book "The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit and Its Impact on World History."  For the effect of secret societies growing out of the French Revolution on various revolutionary movements, see James H. Billington's "Fire in the Minds of Men:  Origins of the Revolutionary Faith."  For the evils wrought by Freemasons, particularly by the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite in America, see Paul Fisher's "Behind the Lodge Door."  You have touched upon a vast and much neglected topic, but be prepared for those who will mock you.

The guy who made riddles in stone is really anti-catholic.
His name is Chris Pinto, on his website he has videos bashing catholicism.
Just saying his work needs to be taken with a grain of salt. He also thinks Shakespeare was Francis Bacon, his arguments look good on the surface but other sources claim shakespeare studied with the jesuits and was a devoted Catholic.

That said, I do like some of his work particularly the the work exposing Alfred Kinsey the pervert whom Hollywood loves.

Here is a trailer for one of his other videos "a lamp in the dark"
It'll give you a bit of an idea where he's coming from.


A lot of his article and movies are on this website.
