Someone put er in your name after the B.
"Nut" should be "But". Sheesh.
I'd never smear the Baptists. Nor would I smear anyone else - as a Baptist, I can only sit and watch, in sadness and regret, that the rest of ya all Burn In Hell, while Baptists like me will get to spend eternity hanging with the Main Dude...
you don't even know what a Berean is.
Don't be too hard on them Poohbah. They're just victems of our failed pubic skool systems.
you are not a Baptist
I liked it!
Actually, it was General Nathan Bedford Forrest, late of the Confederacy in 1871.
I think the beginnings of wisdom lie in reading a SECOND book, by a differing author, then a 3rd, a 4th and so on.
At some point, the careful reader will begin to acquire a critical capacity. This is the key to intellectual development.
It can't be said too often - reading that 2nd book is all-important.
I believe it's a word used among Assembly of God preachers, as a tribute to some early founder of the church who accidently came to church drunk one sunday and was trying to say "Brain", right? Am I right? What do I win?
Freemasonry is a self-serving secret organization that has at its higher levels the full intent to control the world, largely in association with religion. Contrary to the opinion of many, even at the Blue Lodge levels (the first three stages of Freemasonry), it is not a Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist or Hindu organization. It is a conglomerate of all religious beliefs including Satanism. It is a Luciferian worshipping organization bent on domination of the world.
Freemasonry has become a religion unto itself with developed rituals that omit reference to particular beliefs and focusing upon an indifferent god called The Great Architect of the Universe (GAOTU). For instance, one may not pray in the name of "Jesus." If a Christian lodge does so, and it is reported to the grand lodge, it can be closed. Nor, supposedly, can one pray to Allah or in the name of any other god or goddessthough pagan gods are often symbolized.
Benevolence is not a goal of Freemasonry. Benevolence is a method of mollification used to promote goodwill for an organization that through prior criminal activity had lost its public esteem. The development of the Shriners and Masonic charitable organizations no matter how good the charitable works they do are used to enhance the image of Freemasonry a major arm of the Illuminati and associated organizations.
Its secret oaths bind its members to come to the aid of a brother, to lie when necessary, to protect a brother even if he has committed a great criminal act. Masonic judges are bound to set their brothers free should it at all be possible or at least to give them the lightest sentence applicable to the crimes committed. Police officials will not arrest or at least will do whatever they can to protect fellow Freemasons. Keep in mind that the higher the rank in civil government, police agencies, and in the military the more likely it is that the person is a Freemason. They see to the promotion of their own members.
Prime ministers and other civil government leaders are bound to pardon or otherwise set free Freemasons, including war criminals, when deemed opportune. When a Freemason is in need, or the opportunity avails itself, government benefits are showered upon him. Government contracts are awarded to fellow Freemasons. Among qualified astronauts a Freemason is apt to be selected. Revolutions, Rebellions, World Wars, and World Organizations (example: League of Nations) are often associated with or even fomented by Freemasons.
Collusion among Freemasons is rampant in society, government, and religion of all faiths. Muslims, Jewish, Catholics and others cooperate when it is to their advantage to do so and will even finance each other when it is profitable or serves Masonic goals. Prisoners of War who are Freemasons are given special treatment by captor Freemasons. Injustices in regard to non Freemasons by Freemasons are commonly overlooked. It must be kept in mind that Masonic oaths and their other practices are self-serving. They are not favorable to non-members who are seen as pawns to be either used (canon fodder) or disposed of at will.
Discrimination by Freemasons is required. No one can be a Freemason who is not a person of status, does not have quality of looks, is a negro, is not physically sound, is not above average in intelligence, or is not of financial worth. Higher levels of Freemasonry require one to be of greater wealth and have a home of substantial value. Being willing to entertain has added value in this hedonistic society with a focus upon sex worship at its highest levels.
Ok, what ya got on these groups?
Thanks for laughing, I just wanted to make it clear that the views of the original post were not my own.
Hate it when they do that. Makes me want to wipe my hand on my trousers. 8^)
I am too. The rest of ya all are heathens.
Berean is a character from Tolkein's The Silmarilion, the pre-history to The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
He was a man that married an elf, producing the ancestors of the Numenorean line, Aragorn's forbears.
In October, 1993, the Council of the District of Columbia received "proposed legislation" titled "Albert Pike, Ku Klux Klan Memorial Statue, Removal Resolution of 1992, PR 9-526." The request to have the President of the United States remove this statue was submitted by council member William P. Lightfoot. Mr. Lightfoot claimed
"The United States Congress, on April 4 and 5, 1898, authorized a private organization to place the statue of Albert Pike on the public land of the United States, being falsely informed only that Albert Pike was a leader of white freemasons in the southern states, and 'a distinguished citizen of the United States, an able lawyer and statesman, an accomplished poet, and a brave soldier.'"
I've known black Masons. You might want to double check that "negro" exclusion thing.
I think its Beren, though.
