Secret Societies in Our Day

Here is a fact that I hope won’t be surprising to many: secret combinations exist.

One of my biggest pet peeves is members of the Church who think that “all is well in Zion“. News flash: it’s not!

Here is a fact that I hope won’t be surprising to many: secret combinations exist. It is a naive and ignorant person who will chalk up this assertion to hogwash and speculation. The Book of Mormon, written for our day, is laden with stories about, and lessons learned from, secret combinations.

Care for an example?

The Skull and Bones society. In 2004, CBS (surprisingly) did a report on the society, which was rather fair and objective. A previously-aired TV Broadcast also sheds some light on the society. The New American has a great article about it.

President Bush is a member. So was his dad. So was his grandfather. So is John Kerry.

Check out a segment by Inside Edition about the society. Watch this nation’s President respond to a question about his Skull and Bones membership. Watch Senator Kerry respond to the same question.

Now that’s just disturbing. Notice how they shift the question so quickly? Knowing that our nation’s President, his father (and ex-President), and several other prominent political figures are members of this secret society is alarming and disturbing. Hearing a public figure maintain absolute secrecy on the subject is worse. Where is his true allegiance? Whom does he serve? Whom does he protect? What is he hiding?

I’ll let the curious reader google more on Skull and Bones, CFR, the Trilateral Commission, and the Rockefeller family. As a teaser for what you’ll find, here is a quote by David Rockefeller, Sr., concerning the theories of his involvement in these conspiratorial acts. Please note that this quote is in his own words, in his own book:

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
—David Rockefeller, Sr., Memoirs, 2002

I pray that we can all study these things out with the spirit of discernment, and read the signs of the times. I pray that we can all realize that all is not well in Zion. As individuals and in our families, we need to make sure that we are living our lives in accordince with God’s will, so that no matter what may come, we will be “standing in holy places“.

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
—Abraham Lincoln

    Great site in many ways.

    Excellent topic and worthy of development. This too has been on my mind, Secret Societies that is.

    With respect, Skull and Bones is of no threat to anyone. However, terrorist cells are, and I fully believe they are amonst us now and will blossom as a plague.

    Being of a threat is somewhat relative in terms. A threat to our immediate national security? Most likely not. A threat to the trust in our nation’s top leader? Most definitely yes.

    They’re not out killing people right now, but the fact that some of our nation’s leaders are scheming behind the scenes, giving their loyalty to this sadistic and secret society is troubling.

    “Skull and Bones is of no threat to anyone. However, terrorist cells are..”

    Terrorist cells are not SECRET COMBINATIONS…

    The Book of Mormon defines secret combinations as those people who make secret oaths with Lucifer and commit murder and hide it, and have secret plans of subversion of the freedoms of the nation.

    Terrorist cells, yes they might be able to kill people, but they are not able to overthrow our freedom, that is done by the Secret Combinations of which Ezra Taft Benson said, in 1988, “is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world.”

    Terrorists don’t have INFLUENCE AND CONTROL over America. The Secret Combinations are not the Terrorists.

    The Illuminati, of which Skull & Bones is a sub-group, is definitely a threat to our freedom, and they most definitely fit the description of a secret combination.

    The destruction of Zion (or prohibition of Zion) is due to the antithesis of Zion – disunity. Zion is a community where all are one and there are no poor. Secret combinations due not necessarily need to have secret signs/names/tokens, they only need to seek out to create a disunity where certain individuals have selective power/wealth which are unavailable to the rest of the community.

    The real threats to the nation and world are not skull and bones, endowed Mormons, Danites, Freemasons, or even Al Qaida… but are those in power who use their secretive knowledge, wealth, associations, and power to increase those very things. These are business conglomerates, CEOs, government and religious leaders, and others in power who keep their secrets to maintain their power.
