"Once Religion is dead, Law and Property will fall to our mercy, and we
shall be able to regenerate society by founding on the corpses of the

And the Masons are doing this. This book shows the documentation of how
Christianity has been systematically assassinated and the world
"regenerated" by Masonic "religion."

Further on, individual denominations will be examined in depth. But for now here are some note worthy items, that can be mentioned in general about the Masonic infiltration of the churches.
especially high ranking church officials are special targets of
only is this known to this Author from interviews with ex-high ranking
but can also be seen from the following quote from the Proceedings of
Lodge of Illinois (1909),
Master Charles R. Smith speaking to a large
Masonic meeting which had representatives from 24 foreign grand lodges,
representatives from 54 lodges in attendance stated his following
"1. I was
asked, "Is a Jewish Rabbi a
minister of the gospel," within the meaning of section 21, chapter XV
the constitution, entitling him, in the discretion of the lodge, to a
in. or rebate of the fees for initiation? As Jewish Rabbis are
authorized by law
to perform marriage ceremonies and other duties appertaining to the
office of the ministry, I ruled that they were "ministers of the
gospel" within the meaning of the section." (Underlining added to
highlight how recruited ministers can get their fees waived by a lodge.)
some denominations the selection of what congregation a minister is
involves church politics, that can give the Masons an edge.
ministers are assigned small, poor rural churches. More liberal
the right connections are given large, rich, city congregations. Not
this born out by an interview with an ex-minister, but reports like the
following make it suspect. This report is from the Bishop of Southwark,
known to me involved a particularly
unfortunate appointment to an important living. The man, a Mason, had
commend him. But he was approved by the diocesan, the suffragan and by
archdeacon—all of whom were Masons. I am prepared to believe that the
hierarchy was innocent and never allowed the Masonic factor to
choice. But in the diocese it was widely believed that it was the
hand-shake rather than the Holy Spirit that filled the vacant living."4
Masons are a seed of destruction to the church using techniques
parallel to what
successfully worked for the white man against the Indian. The American
was conquered by the white man due to a series of several contributing
such as false pretensions of peace by the white man, the introduction
diseases and bad habits (alcohol), and the promotion or the problem of
inter-rivalry between Indian groups (divide and conquer). Within the
churches Masons are introducing various "infectious diseases" such as

expectations that the Jews (practicing Pharisism from Babylon) will

Dr. Morey would have us believe that
Freemasonry was a Christian organization before Albert Pike turned it
"Hindu temple." However, this is pure Masonic propaganda. Any unbiased
researcher will find the Christian churches were concerned from the
beginning about Freemasonry. According to the Scottish Rite's New Age
the first expose of
Freemasonry was in 1730 and entitled

and 1803 the Baptist
Reverend Henry Crocker in Vermont preached sermons against Freemasonry

"Surely, if Masons really understood what Masonry is, as it is
in these books, no Christian Mason would think himself to remain at
another day as a member of the fraternity. It is as plain as possible
that a man

Christian man. To
say he is is to disbelieve the very nature of Christianity."
to an ex-Mason now Christian, the Masons have infiltrated all the
denominational groups. Whether this is an overstatement or not, it is
the Author's research that it can't be much of an overstatement,
can be found even in groups that forbid them. If organizations of
examined Masons can also be found in the leadership. By controlling
Societies, the type of Bible translations, the distribution pattern,
controlled. Some examples of Masons within Christian Societies are:

5. The influence of Masonry upon church teachings can be seen in what the Educational and Historical Commission of the Grand Lodge of Georgia published in its Leaves from Georgia Masonry, "Let us take a look at the number of great Bible classes for men which have been organized by the Church. Many of these classes are being led by enlightened Masons....These laymen are bringing to the interpretation of the Bible many of Masonry's great revelations."11 (bold added).
Circle G- Seminaries and Christian Schools
Circle G on the chart is Seminaries and Schools. The following is list is made up of Freemasons who are in Prominant positions in charge of Christian Seminaries or schools, or are teachers. This is not a complete list, but is given in the hopes it will provide the reader for a feel for how much influence the Masonic lodge has even on Christian education. Centers that were thought to have been Christian centers for Theology are recruiting and training centers for all kinds of heresy and occultism.

THE FOUNDATIONS (Circle B on Chart)
life-blood of many religious institutions comes
from foundations and trusts. Without Grants many Christian schools
would end up
in the red financially.
I am looking
at an interoffice memo of a Christian
Seminary "RE: The Five Year Planning
Process." It states, "We must
cultivate a financial support base of both current and endowment
adequate to securing the desired quality of students, faculty, staff
cultivate relationships that bring them financial grants.
foundations are busy giving money to religious
institutions? There are a host of tiny foundations, and some medium
that were started by sincere people. Most if not all of the few big
tie-in to the One-World-Power. The One-World-Power in 1964
provided about one-third of the grant money
going to religious groups.13
In terms of
foundation power, the manipulation of
Christendom can not hardly be underestimated. In order to stand in line
life-sustaining finances, Christian institutions have to "prostitute"
themselves to the wishes of the One-World-Conspiracy.
AN EXAMPLE OF A SMALL FOUNDATION—HOUSTON ENDOWMENT
Mason Jesse H. Jones created the Houston
Endowment. The disbursement of grants in 1984 give us an example of a
Foundation which is working for the One-World-System.
In 1984, Houston endowment gave out the
following grant amounts14 :
Abilene Christian University- $50,000
Jewish Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith- $5,000
Asbury Theological Seminary- $5,000
Baylor College of Medicene- $30,366

Texas Christian Univ.- $50,000
Texas Lutheran College- $215,000

Trinity Univ.- $55,000
is clear that these institutions must not be
rocking the boat concerning the Freemasons. It is also noteworthy that
radical Jewish ADL which has bombed and assassinated people ruthlessly
is a recipient.
Until this book, few people would have seen any link between the Church
Christ, Jewish synagogues, Baptists, Lutherans, Methodists, Catholics,
Presbyterians, and Salvation Army concerns. This book is exposing that
Masons have interest in all of these groups.

THE INFILTRATION OF THE BAPTISTS
of any Protestant denomination in the
U.S. are the Southern Baptists. How widespread is Freemasonry in this
denomination? 40% of the Southern Baptist ministers are Masons.19
only are large numbers of Baptist ministers Freemasons, but the various
denominational leaderships are heavily Masonic. Some examples are:
33°, President of the Southern Baptist
Convention in 1957.
Hazen, 32°, Corresponding Secretary of the
Northern Baptist Convention, 1940-51. Commentator of the Federal
Churches of Christ in Amer., 1930-45.

SCOT-BAPTISTS, MASONRY, & MORMONISM
The Baptist Masons can be seen to have tie-ins to heresy.
Rigdon was the Baptist minister who threw his
lot in to support Joseph Smith start the Mormon church. Rigdon had been
to the ministry in the First Baptist Church in Pittsburgh, PA. in 1819.21
The 1866 Directory of Pittsburgh and Allegheny states on p. 10 that
Baptist Church met in the Masonic Hall. Sidney Rigdon, was influenced
ideas of the same occultist thinkers who were active in secret
Europe as Karl Marx was. Ideologies, such as communism, are in many
forms of religion.22 The original
mythic model for many of the early
revolutionists was Prometheus, who in Greek religious thought had been
who stole fire from the gods for mankind. Fire, and flames have been
used as a
symbol of enlightenment for many occultic groups. This gives us further

Baptists (immersed Sandemanians), started

Rigdon's thinking. It is not hardly known that Alexander

were an offshoot of this

but finally struck out on his own tangent, and Sidney Rigdon joined
Rigdon wanted to continue the communism that the Sandemanians had.
Campbell wanted to continue the nomenclature of the Scotch Baptists in
to the weekly collection which they called "the Fellowship"
but wasn't interested in the communism.33
It is at
this point that, the influence of the
occultic-originated Communes of Owens, Fourier, George Rapp and others
played a part. These communal experiments had all failed, but
loyal to their ideas found Rigdon's communal ideas compatible.
Campbell not only allied his church temporarily with the Unitarians,34
but allowed Universalists
and Masons to join his movement.
Alexander Campbell later regretted doing this.35
People with these
types of background found their way into two commune towns that Rigdon
and later handed over to Joseph Smith. John Cook Bennett, who was a
Mason as a
Cambellite, later became the mayor of the Mormon town of Navoo. (He was
from the Mormon church on May
1842 and moved to Pittsburg, PA.)36 Rigdon
joined the Freemasons. He
also was the major factor in taking Joseph Smith from being a prophet
church to a prophet with an organized church of two communes. Rigdon's
congregations at Kirkland gave Joseph Smith the nucleus
of his Mormon community. To this came in such new converts as the

SIX QUESTIONS TO GET US THINKING
1. Why is it that died-in-the-wool communist leaders like Billy Graham?
2. Why is it that the Pope and the Catholic church gave Billy Graham his doctorate (yes, his doctorate is honorary)?
3. Why is it that Billy
Graham is on record advocating that if the Ten Commandments
can't be read in the public schools
then communist Chairman Mao-Tse-tung's principles should be taught?62
4. Why is it that Billy Graham is on record several times saying in speeches that the Catholic Church preaches the gospel?63
5. Why is it that Billy Graham doesn't believe in hell, but believes in Armageddon, yet both ideas are in the book of Revelation?64
6. Why does Billy Graham support a One-world-government one-world-church?65

Graham was in favor of his Presidency, Nixon told him not to publicly
him, "Your ministry is more important than my getting elected

that religious. I believe Nixon meant it more in the sense that
ministry is more important to the New Order than Nixon's presidency.

Enormous volunteer time and energy were put into building everything up for the moment Graham would speak. 650 billboards announced Billy Graham along with 40,000 bumper stickers. Although the Crusade was billed as designed to save "Sodom" New York, 7,500 of the Garden's seats went to Christians bussed in from all over the U.S. 11,200 seats in all were given to distant delegations, guest ministers, the crusade staff of counselors, ushers, and choir.

Boleyn. Henry VII went so far as to force the clergy of his realm on
to declare him "supreme head" of Christ's Church in England. In 1535
he declared himself "in terra supremum caput Anglicanae

movement rather than Luther's ideas.1 After the

plagued the church during its years under Rome's authority continued

called Pluralism— that is where a clergyman will hold several church
in order to draw pay from each, and yet the clergyman would not perform
function of but one office.2 When the separation
with Rome occurred,
and for many years afterward, the clergy in the Anglican Church were
poorly educated and had poor morals.3
TO MASONRY & BRITISH-ISRAELISM
idea of British-Israelism was so popular with the Anglican Church that
associate the two together. The form of British-Israelism that the
Church practices is perverse in that it elevates the Askenazim Jews to
position in the affairs of mankind, which God never promised them.
Alfred the Great (who reigned from 871 to 899) was positive he was
direct descent from Adam. King James I, who was the first to call

"Then shall enter into the gates of the city, kings and princes sitting
upon the throne of David." The Royalty of England, who have been

EARLY EPISCOPAL CHURCH & MASONRY
Church of England was especially strong in colonial Virginia, and
in colonial Maryland. The Episcopalian who is sometimes called the
Freemasonry Henry Price (1697-1780) came to Boston, Mass. in 1723 and
regular lodge in 1733 in Boston.12 Irregular
lodges had been meeting
in the colonies previous to this. James Madison, the first Episcopalian
in colonial Virginia was also an active Mason.13
discussing the colonial time period C.S. Coles, 32°, writes in the New
Magazine (Oct. 1921) p. 468, "In those days too, Freemasonry was
confined to the members of the Episcopal Church among English-speaking
both Scottish and English Masonry having its main support among the
the Established Churches, and it is a fine thing to know that in those
Church and Masonry went hand in hand in performing works of charity and
good-will. Today the Episcopal Church takes the same position as the
regard to the great public school system of our country, the past
worked a revolution in our methods..."
Church of England controlled its churches in the colonies through the
the Bishop of London who appointed commissaries for the colonies to
his orders. By the time of the Amer. Revolution, there were 300
churches and 250 Anglican clergymen in the 13 colonies.14

started a private seminary at Pendleton, S.C.15
HERESY & THE ANGLICAN CHURCH
Anglican church has embraced men of all forms of persuasion. From the
Church have come men like John Taylor, who became the LDS church's
President. John Taylor was the descendent of Richard Whittington, three
Mayor of London. He had been exposed to both Masonry and the Anglican
Anglo-Israelism, both of which Mormonism encompasses. (He also was a
minister for a spell.) He declared that Christianity was "hatched in
hell" and was "a perfect pack of nonsense...The Devil could not invent
a better engine to spread his work..."16 In
other words, when we
get the bigger picture we see new religious groups which we had
pictured as new
formations drawing their blood from many religious heritages, but which
actually in many ways just regroupings of Masonic thinkers accompanied
who they were able to get to follow and submit to them.
1921, William Temple (1881 -1944) was made Bishop of Manchester and in
Archbishop of Canterbury. William Temple is quite well known,
especially for his
ecumenical activities. He was instrumental in promoting the World
Churches and the unification (union) of the various British Protestant
denominations, which unified under the British Council of Churches. He

He has promoted mysticism and Platonism.
Parks Morton, Dean of the Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine,
City, is openly a New Age leader. He is on record as in favor of the
plan (called Planetary Initiative) to unify the world under a
One-World- Government. And he is doing all he can to promote its
Pentecost, he invited every type of religious group in to commune with

increasingly being called to realize that the body of Christ is the
biosphere- the skin that includes all of us."17
Thanksgiving in 1988, James Morton invited in witches, medicine men,
worshippers, and American Indians and they danced around in a "Circle
dance" to promote friendship and unity. Morton stated that the dance
create a "heightened consciousness of the necessity of different
working together to save our planet."18
is no surprise then considering the Episcopalian support for a Masonic
Religion and a One-World-Government that 33° Freemason George Bush,19
who hopes to be the one in office to have the honors of bringing in the
World Order, would as U.S. President turn to such men as the Rt. Rev.

chaplain, Rev. Richard C. Halverson.20

to the Christian scriptures this is really warped thinking. Although
to be different and Christian, actually the Episcopal Church, which now
to a social gospel is preaching and defining "faith in God" just as
the other religions. The Episcopal Church by rejecting the Bible's
"faith in God" is not able to see that witches, New Agers, Satanists,
etc. do not have a "faith in God". The issue that Episcopalian Masons
raised that one shouldn't demean other people's faith is fake, for the
Buddhists, Witches et. al. do not have Christian faith. It is not true
Christians are rejecting other believers by believing in Scripture.

IN THE ONE-WORLD-RELIGION
Episcopalian Church is officially part of the One-World-Religion. A
foreshadowing of the Union of the large power religions of Christendom
in 1922, when the Greek Orthodox Church—specifically the Eastern
Holy Synod of Constantinople accepted the Anglican religious orders.
Archbishop of Canterbury committed the Church of England to the pact
"Global Forum of Spiritual and Parliamentary Leaders on Human
Survival" decreed. That pact resulted in a five-day Global Forum where
religious leaders of all persuasions (except Bible-believing
present. Also participating were the Archbishop of Canterbury, the
of Mason religious and spiritual leaders, U.S. Senators, Soviet
officials, the U.N. Secretary General, the Dalai Lama (considered a
god), and a
host of other types like monks, Moslem inmans, and rabbis. They
their committment to a Unified Religion (which is supposedly necessary
global survival") is in their words "commitments that are
irrevocable." In Jan. 15-19, 1990, they held another Global Forum in
Moscow, U.S.S.R. That Global Forum called for a "new planetary
perspective" involving a "new spiritual and ethical basis for human
activities on earth."22
they are proposing a NEW ethical basis for us, to replace that "old
religion" so many Christians have sung about. Theirs is the revitalized
Christianity also known as the Masonic religion that New Age leaders
Bailey and Benjamin Creme say will be the One-World-Religion. It is the
of Masonry which is described by Albert Pike:
around whose altars the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahman,
followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren and
prayer to the one God..."23
NEW AGE PLANS TO TAKE OVER THE CHURCH
and its daughter the New Age do not plan to destroy the church but to
to their purposes. New Age writer William Thompson states,
new spirituality does not reject the earlier patterns of the great
religions. Priest and church will not disappear; they will not be
forced out of
existence in the New Age, they will be absorbed into the existence of
Anglican Church is not being destroyed but rather subverted. And just

structure and promise of a future Utopia. Mao Tse-tung's eight precepts
basically the same as Ten Commandments. In fact if we can't have the
Commandments read in the schools, I'll settle for Mao's principles."
POPULAR THAT all the Presidents
and many leading
politicians worldwide have been close friends with Billy Graham. Billy
has given respectibility to the Presidents, including his good friend
Nixon. A well-researched article on Billy Graham in the Journal of
State concluded after examining Billy Graham's interaction with the
Presidents since Eisenhower, "...could Graham speak the word of truth -
especially when that word may be critical or slashing - to the man in
House when he is on such friendly terms with him? On the basis of the
now available, the answer must be no."9

seem to ask, "What would God do without Billy Graham?" and "Could
God get by without Billy Graham's ministry?" Not only could He, but in
respects Christians would be better off. How so? Tony Campolo,
Christian sociologist, pastor and speaker found that converts from
radio were rare. He found that most converts from the televised Billy
Crusades had had Christians who were fundamental to their conversion
before and after they watched him on TV. He concludes that it is
whether the sermons or the Christian friends were what was crucial."13
If Billy Graham were not around, and the Holy Spirit needed people to
God, it is clear that almost all the converts had a Christian(s) in
who could have ministered completely to them. Christ desires that we
quit placing all the responsibility of ministering on professionals,
and that we
each take up our individual responsibility to minister.
time you have a large Christian gathering ask them how many came to

very small percentage. As stewards of Christ's wealth are we honestly
our wealth in best manner? Compare the large sums spent for TV
evangelism/Crusades with the other needs, that go begging for our
money. Is this the best use of God's money?
Is Billy Graham really that good of an example to spend millions on? Bible-believing Christians have been wincing at how Billy Graham has promoted a long parade of Masons, liberals, heretics, Satanists, etc. on stage with him as well as those who he has placed into the leadership positions of his staffs and Crusade organizers. Many letters have been written to him about this. Billy Graham not only gives dubious Christians leadership roles, he publicly praises them such as Graham's comment that "Bishop Kennedy [Methodist Bishop Gerald Kennedy] is one of the ten greatest Christian preachers in America." Kennedy is on record as denying most of the fundamental Christian doctrines. The Bible teaches us how to treat men who deny Christ, who deny the Scriptures that the Holy Spirit co-authored, and who lead gravely immoral lives. Scriptures do not say to give them leadership positions and praise them, Scriptures say:

Reverend William Clyde Donald of Fenton, Michigan, wrote a very astute
on the relationship of Organized Religion to the youth organizations as
sponsored by Masonry:
In relationship to youth the Masonic lodge has a great advantage in one respect over the church. The church is interested in youth, but as a rule its dealing with youth is confined rather largely to the youth in the families in relationship with that church. Masonry (through its youth program) can minister unto youth in the community regardless of their family church relationships. Masons meet as Masons, not as Methodist or Presbyterian, etc. Their sons and daughters and their friends of their children can come and receive training that will build them into stalwart citizens. The DeMolay, Order of Rainbow, and Jobs Daughters give Masons and the Eastern Star a great opportunity to train youth to believe in and have great faith in the Creator and Sus-

countries) were the armed forces commander, Giovanni Torrisi; the
chiefs, Generals Giuseppe Santovito and Giulio Grassini; the head of
financial police, Orazio Giannini; cabinet ministers and politicians of

admirals; newspaper editors; television executives; top businessmen;
bankers, including Roberto Calvi and Michele Sindona. Unlike
Freemasonry, the list of members of P2 was secret; only Gelli knew all

power of P2.
One of them was the innocuous method of personal contact and
an already existing member. Others were less tasteful. Blackmail was
prevalent. When a "target" joined P2, he was obliged to demonstrate
loyalty by placing at Gelli's disposal documents that would compromise
himself but also other possible targets. Confronted with the evidence
own misdeeds, these new targets also joined P2. This technique was
example, on the president of ENI (Ente Nazionale Idrocarburi, the state
company), Giorgio Mazzanti. Shown the evidence of his own corruption
concerning proposed huge bribes and payoffs on a pending Saudi oil
Mazzanti caved in and joined P2, bringing to Gelli even more
technique Gelli used to obtain a new member was to ascertain from
corrupted sources the short list of candidates for important jobs. He
then telephone these candidates, announcing to each that he intended to

Illuminism was Joachim of Floris. Joachim of Floris in the eleventh
heavily influenced by Jewish apocalyptic thought and under the veil of
Christian began a group of "Illuminated Ones.” A number of the ideas
this Illumined Master Joachim of Floris held, can be seen to have
with certain Adventists, such as Charles Taze Russell, among others.
Floris believed a new race of spiritual or enlightened ones would take
of the world. This view is now echoed in hundreds of religious groups
of his ideas that of viewing the days of Rev. 12 as equaling a year was
up by C.T. Russell. Thomas Aquinas attacked that view in Summa
3, "Supplement," p. 77, art. 1 & 2).1
Illuminated Ones were very successful in various ways to discredit
and establish their own agenda. They have worked quietly through
and it has taken centuries for the fulfillment of the Plan, which
Illumined ones call "the Divine Plan.” The advancement of technology
greatly added to the fulfillment of the goals. Some of the greatest
in technology have come through Illumined minds such as Thomas Edison

co-workers. Edison’s daily associate was the Freemason George E.
Everett W. Frazar was a Freemason who worked at Edison’s lab.

500 to 750 person in procession through Toledo’s streets to the
publicly confess their sins. Then they were "disabled", that is
prohibited in some ways to cramp their style, such as prohibited to
offices and to drink alcohol. The strength of these prohibitions can be
that many soon regained their old offices, in spite of the prohibitions.8
The real effect was to make many Jews who were into the Cabala become
in name, and to hide their Jewishness. Many changed their last names,
some coincidence almost all key public records have disappeared, making
difficult to trace and positively identify who were Jews back then.
The Quietism of Spain which included Michael de Molinos was associated with Illuminism.9

from taking any interest on money, in general only the Jews were into

Catholic Europe’s trade with Cathay (China) was controlled by the Jews,11
and so were the Italian banks which resulted.12

his book in 1286 about how the Jews controlled trade with Cathay

Mohammed gained much of his religious knowledge from Nestorian

issue, it appears that the Catholic Pope was prompted to start the

Jesus Christ. Using Catholic power they hoped to gain Palestine which

ORDER OF JESUITS
The mystic St. Ignatius of Loyola founded the Order of Jesuits. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. XVI, printed in 1914 with the approval of the Pope’s censor and Imprimatur, Ignatius of Loyola and St. John of Avila were brought before an Inquisition council concerning links to the Illuminati in Spain (the 20 Alumbrados). This Catholic source also states that the Illuminati believed that they could become "the essence of God." And that the highest perfection was in the elimination of all activity, and for the self to be absorbed into God. For them carnal desires and actions are not sinful and can be engaged in.

Adam Weishaupt was a man named Nicolai who had established in Berlin a
group to propagate Illuminism. Nicolai in turn was supported by Lessing
Mendelsohn. The Mason Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729-1781), the founder
modern German literature, gave his support to this anti-Christian
his literary endeavors. Also one learns in the memoirs of Moses
that he was behind the efforts of Nicolai.

SECRET BLACK POPE & "THE COMPANY"
Jesuit control of the Catholic Church is known to some. In Italy, the
Master General is called the Black Pope because they realize how much
Grand Master wields. Every Catholic country has at some time expelled
because it wields its own power.32 The Order is
also called by the
Jesuits themselves "the Company." In understanding the mechanisms of
power within the Catholic Church, and the Catholic Church’s leverage on
events it is crucial to know what the Jesuits are about. However, in
times there often hasn’t been any difference between the white and
Popes. A big exception was on Oct. 5, 1978 when Pope John Paul I

THIS CHURCH IS SO POWERFUL, WHY HAVEN'T PEOPLE HEARD OF IT?
In 1852, the Unitarian Reverend Theodore Parker praised
the high ranking
Mason Hosea Ballou (1771-1852) for having created "a revolution in the
thoughts and minds of men more mighty than any which has been
during the same period by all the politicians of the nation."4

book's author, Ernest Cassara, criticizes past writers on Ballou, "Most
serious of all, their work nourished the myth that Ballou was purely an
thinker. They believed that he had arrived at his theory of atonement,
Unitarian conception of God, his Arian conception of Christ and many
his thought simply through an independent study of the Bible."5
Ballou (1771-1852) was more influential in his time than the New
Unitarian Masons such as William Ellery Channing and Ralph Waldo
who both have been given
attention by historians than Ballou. By the way, William Ellery
Channing had a
Jewish heritage. Ralph Waldo Emerson was raised by his Mason stepfather
Ripley. Emerson praised his stepfather's religious views.
POWER OF THE WRITTEN & SPOKEN WORD
story of Hosea Ballou shows the power of the written and spoken word.
support during his lifetime did the Masons give Ballou? That would be
extensive study. However, it is easier to pinpoint the three biggest
upon his life (fatherly influences aside). Ballou was greatly
influenced by a
mystic named Caleb Rich. The second big influence was the Masonic
Allen. And the final big influence particularly upon his Theology, was
by the Masonic deists of that age.
LIFE PARALLELS JOS. SMITH'S & C.T. RUSSELL'S IN SOME WAYS
Ballou's early life has affinities to both C.T. Russell's and Joseph
All three came from families that appear to have had great expectations
religiously for these men. Like C.T. Russell's mother, Hosea's died
when he was
young. He was only 20 months old. And like Russell he was very close to
father.9 However, unlike Russell's father,
Ballou's father was
opposed to his Universalist ideas. In spite of his opposition his

Hosea's siblings to Universalism. In turn Hosea later converted his
the genesis of his beliefs, Ballou, like Russell, challenged a local
to answer his questions. Elder Brown of Westfield failed to answer his
questions.11 Ballou in his late teens,
increasingly hardened in his
Universalist beliefs. While a youth, Ballou had been interested in the
and as a young man he joined.12 More about his
Masonic career later.
1789, Hosea and most of his siblings, brothers and sisters, joined the
Universalist movement. His brother was a type of homespun philosopher.13
Hosea himself had very little formal education. "Though rich in native
intelligence, he was always to suffer from the lack of a good thorough
educational background. His accomplishments were to be made in spite of
deficiency."14 Later, Hosea converted his eldest
Universalism.15 In terms of family support and
education the three
Masons Russell, Smith, and Ballou also had affinities to each other.
Rich, the mystic universalist (with possibly a Jewish heritage), who
influence the Ballou family so much, moved into a nearby town the year
born.16 This mystic received his theology from a
series of dreams and
visions.17 Caleb Rich on the basis of his
visions started a church
named "the General Society."18
General Society had members from the nearby towns of Warwick, Richmond
is considered likely that Hosea as a boy participated at some of the
of Hosea's relatives joined this General Society.20
next influence on his life was the Mason (again with a possible Jewish

evidence that he was a Mason. Records from lodges back then are often
nonexistent, and it is not that perilous to believe statements of
people that he
was a Mason. Masonry was very strong in that area and not only
Allen, but also the family of Joseph Smith. (The connections between
Universalist Church and the origins of Mormonism will be discussed
well as the Masonic tie ins.)
himself cites Masonic deist writers as the source of his views. "It may
proper for me here to state one circumstance, which, no doubt, had no
tendency to bring me on to the ground where I have, for many years,
established. It was my reading some deistical writings.
this means I was led to see that it was utterly impossible to maintain
Christianity as it has been generally believed in the church."21
Allen's book was rather rare, because after lightening struck the print
burned up most of the newly printed books, the printer destroyed most
rest because of the book's
views. At least one copy circulated among the Universalists (from
most likely), and Ballou read such a copy.22
Allen, Ballou learned to examine everything especially scripture from
of reason. The doctrine of the Trinity seemed contrary to reason to
Ballou following his cue also rejected the Trinity.23
forced, because of his rejection of the Trinity, to change his view of
Atonement of Christ. So he dismissed it altogether. Discarding the
Christ, meant discarding the concept of sin.24
Allen's book which he
called "Oracles of Reason", and others called "Ethan Allen's
Bible" had a profound effect upon Ballou as is evidenced by Ballou's
Treatise on Atonement.
BALLOU'S THIRD INFLUENCE

LINKS BETWEEN UNITARIANS & MASONIC REVOLUTION
next topic is a group of Unitarian conspirators, who are relatively
in American history as ministers and for things other than revolution.
Brown is a legend of American History.
Brown had a group of men who he led intent on starting a revolution, a
revolt that was meant to have far reaching effects. But John Brown did
this on his own. What men supported John Brown, supplied him with his
arms? And who was the real John Brown?
Brown was a Mason.49 "Thanks to the Masonic
scandal (the murder
of Morgan), John Brown was now being drawn toward the ideas of
secret organization."50 While many men were
leaving the lodges
because of Morgan's murder, Brown was attracted to it. Bear in mind,
contrary to popular mythology, Brown knew little about the Bible. He
knew of one
verse "the wages of sin is death" and he literally believed that it
meant if someone sinned against you, you could blow him away. It is
picked up this revolting idea from hearing a Mormon sermon.
Rosicrucian leader George Lippard, member of the Brethren of Light, who
seeking to create a Brotherhood which was to be "a poor Man's
Masonry", personally influenced John Brown to become rabidly
Brown's eldest son John Brown, Jr., who also murdered and stole along
father, was a faithful Mason.51 John Brown, Jr.
was also a lecturer
on phrenology.52 Phrenology was "immensely
popular among those
turning away from formal religion."53 Three avid
phrenology who also supported John Brown and his sons, (besides the
secret six) were Dr. Samuel Howe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Sen. Charles

instance, August (Anschel) Bondi was a Jewish Freemason who fought with
Brown in the Kansas "battles" of Blackjack and Osawatomie.55
One might better describe these battles as butcheries. Anyway, this
Freemason Anschel Bondi, before he joined with Brown, was a long time
revolutionist having fought in the Masonic created Metternich
