Jesus Christ sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.

27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.

28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. – Matthew 15:21-28 King James Version (KJV)

26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.

27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.

28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.

29 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.

30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.-Mark 7:26-30 King James Version (KJV)

And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them.-2 Nephi 5:21

“You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable and low in their habits, wild, and seemingly deprived of nearly all the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind. The first man that committed the odious crime of killing one of his brethren will be cursed the longest of anyone of the children of Adam. Cain slew his brother. Cain might have been killed, and that would have put a termination to that line of human beings. This was not to be, and the Lord put a mark upon him, which is the flat nose and black skin. Trace mankind down to after the flood, and then another curse is pronounced upon the same race—that they should be the “servant of servants;” and they will be, until that curse is removed; and the Abolitionists cannot help it, nor in the least alter that decree. How long is that race to endure the dreadful curse that is upon them? That curse will remain upon them, and they never can hold the Priesthood or share in it until all the other descendants of Adam have received the promises and enjoyed the blessings of the Priesthood and the keys thereof. Until the last ones of the residue of Adam’s children are brought up to that favorable position, the children of Cain cannot receive the first ordinances of the Priesthood. They were the first that were cursed, and they will be the last from whom the curse will be removed. When the residue of the family of Adam come up and receive their blessings, then
the curse will be removed from the seed of Cain, and they will receive blessings in like proportion. I have but just commenced my remarks, and have presented you a few texts; and it is now time to adjourn. The exertion required to speak to you somewhat at length seems to injure me. I will therefore stop.I bless you all, inasmuch as you have desired and striven to do right, to revere the name of Deity, and to exalt the character of his Son on the earth. I bless you in the name of Jesus Christ! Amen.”Journal of Discourses, Vol 7 pg. 290-291 Intelligence, Etc.Remarks by President Brigham Young, Delivered in the Tabernacle, Great Salt Lake City, October 9, 1859. Reported by G. D.

” Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so. The nations of the earth have transgressed every law that God has given, they have changed the ordinances and broken every covenant made with the fathers, and they are like a hungry man that dreameth that he eateth, and he awaketh and behold he is empty.” – Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 10, p. 110 http://jod.mrm.org/2/170

Joseph Smith’s First Visions

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works –
2 Corinthians 11:14-15King James Version (KJV)

Gordon Bitner Hinckley was an author who served as the 15th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

“That becomes the hinge pin on which this whole cause turns. If the First Vision was true, if it actually happened, then the Book of Mormon is true. Then we have the priesthood. Then we have the Church organization and all of the other keys and blessings of authority which we say we have. If the First Vision did not occur, then we are involved in a great sham. It is just that simple.”- (New York Rochester Missionary Meeting, July 12, 1996.) Gordon B. Hinckley, Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley, p.227

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. – 1 John 4:1 KJV

1st Vision

14 So, in accordance with this, my determination to ask of God, I retired to the woods to make the attempt. It was on the morning of a beautiful, clear day, early in the spring of eighteen hundred and twenty. It was the first time in my life that I had made such an attempt, for amidst all my anxieties I had never as yet made the attempt to pray vocally.

15 After I had retired to the place where I had previously designed to go, having looked around me, and finding myself alone, I kneeled down and began to offer up the desires of my heart to God. I had scarcely done so, when immediately I was seized upon by some power which entirely overcame me, and had such an astonishing influence over me as to bind my tongue so that I could not speak. Thick darkness gathered around me, and it seemed to me for a time as if I were doomed to sudden destruction.

16 But, exerting all my powers to call upon God to deliver me out of the power of this enemy which had seized upon me, and at the very moment when I was ready to sink into despair and abandon myself to destruction—not to an imaginary ruin, but to the power of some actual being from the unseen world, who had such marvelous power as I had never before felt in any being—just at this moment of great alarm, I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me.

17 It no sooner appeared than I found myself delivered from the enemy which held me bound. When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!- Pearl of Great Price, Joseph Smith — History, 1:14-17

2nd Vision

“…the year 1823…

…While continuing in prayer for a manifestation in some way that his sins were forgiven; endeavoring to exercise faith in the scriptures, on a sudden a light like that of day, only of a purer and far more glorious appearance and brightness, burst into the room.-Indeed, to use his own description, the first sight was as though the house was filled with consuming and unquenchable fire…

…Though fear was banished form his heart, yet his surprise was no less when he heard him declare himself to be a messenger sent by commandment of the Lord, to deliver a special message, and to witness to him that his sins were forgiven, and that his prayers were heard; and that the scriptures might be fulfilled,…

…While (the messenger) describing the place where the record was deposited, he gave a minute relation of it, and the vision of his mind being opened at the same time, he was permitted to view it critically; and previously being acquainted with the place, he was able to follow the direction of the vision, afterward, according to the voice of the angel, and obtain the book. – “LATTER DAY SAINTS’ MESSENGER AND ADVOCATE.

LDS Church compared with Holy Bible

Born in sin

Book of Mormon

Listen to the words of Christ, your Redeemer, your Lord and your God. Behold, I came into the world not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance; the whole need no physician, but they that are sick; wherefore, little children are whole, for they are not capable of committing sin; wherefore the curse of Adam is taken from them in me, that it hath no power over them; and the law of circumcision is done away in me.-Moroni 8:8

Holy Bible

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.-Psalm 51:5


Contradictions within  LDS 

God Dwells in Heart?

And this I know, because the Lord hath said he dwelleth not in unholy temples, but in the hearts of the righteous doth he dwell; yea, and he has also said that the righteous shall sit down in his kingdom, to go no more out; but their garments should be made white through the blood of the Lamb. -Alma 34:36

John 14:23—The appearing of the Father and the Son, in that verse, is a personal appearance; and the idea that the Father and the Son dwell in a man’s heart is an old sectarian notion, and is false.- The
Doctrine and Covenants
Section 130:3

Forgiveness For Murder?

Turn, all ye Gentiles, from your wicked ways; and repent of your evil doings, of your lyings and deceivings, and of your whoredoms, and of your secret abominations, and your idolatries, and of your murders, and your priestcrafts, and your envyings, and your strifes, and from all your wickedness and abominations, and come unto me, and be baptized in my name, that ye may receive a remission of your sins, and be filled with the Holy Ghost, that ye may be numbered with my people who are of the house of Israel.-3 Nephi 30:2

And now, behold, I speak unto the church. Thou shalt not kill; and he that kills shall not have forgiveness in this world, nor in the world to come.-D. & C. – Section 42:18

Double Headed Eagle

Freemasonry’s double headed eagle of the 33°

“Some are always contented; others never reach the goal. Some are the Sons of Water—the keepers of flocks; others are Sons of Fire—the builders of cities. One group is conservative, the other is progressive. One is the king, the other the priest. But within the nature of every living thing the Sons of Fire and the Sons of Water exist together. In the Scriptures the flame-born ones are called the Sons of God and the water-born are referred to as the Daughters of Men, for the flame—born Son is the divinity in man and the water—born is the humanity in man. These two brothers are deadly enemies, but in the Mysteries they are taught to cooperate one with the other and are symbolized in Freemasonry as the double—headed eagle of the 33°.”- Melchizedek & the Mystery of Fire by Manly P. Hall pg. 35

“The `ar`, the urfyr[primal fire, god], the `sun`, the `light`will destroy spiritual as well as physical darkness, doubt, and uncertainty. In the sign of the Ar the Aryans-the sons of the sun-founded their law[Rita], the primal law of the Aryans, of which the earn, or eagle[Aar], is the hieroglyph.”- Secret of the Runes, Guido von List


This is just  another part of the Racist Agenda.

“One of the Ancient Mysteries taught that the end of all experience like the beginning plus the experience of the cycle, and some day the human race will give birth to its new bodies out of its own nature, as certain primitive animals still do. Then, indeed, will man be his own father and his own mother,
complete in himself. Initiation makes possible this process in man much earlier than the natural sequence of human evolution would permit it. Such is the true mystery of Melchizedek, King of Salem, the Priest—King (Priest, water; King, fire) who was his own father and his own mother, and in whose footsteps all initiates follow.”- Melchizedek & the Mystery of Fire by Manly P. Hall pg. 35-36

Rosetta Stone


“In I799, what is known as the Rosetta Stone was discovered by some of Napoleon’s men while making an excavation at Rosetta, in lower Egypt. The stone contained an inscription written in three different characters: first, Hieroglyphic: second, Demotic, or common character of the Egyptians: third, Greek. From the Greek it was discovered that the inscription was tri-lingual: that is, each of the writings was a translation of the others. In 1822 Champollion deciphered the word Cleopatra from an obelisk found at Philas. Afterwards, continuing his researches, he completed the translation of the Rosetta Stone, thereby opening up the whole field of Egyptian writings to the long-baffled scholars of the West.”– The origin of Freemasonry and Knights templar by Bennett, John Richardson, (1907) pg. 195

Kabbalah

The Sephirot (also spelled "sephiroth") (singular sefirah) are the ten emanations and attributes of God with which he continually sustains the universe in existence.
The Sephirot (also spelled “sephiroth”) (singular sefirah) are the ten emanations and attributes of God with which he continually sustains the universe in existence.

“The mystical philosophy or theosophy of the Jews is called the Kabbalah. The word is derived from the Hebrew kaba, signifying to receive, because it is the doctrine received from the elders. Practically speaking, the doctrine of Kabbalah refers to the system handed down by oral transmission, and is nearly allied to tradition. It has sometimes been used in an enlarged sense, as comprehending all the explanations, maxims and ceremonies which have been traditionally handed down to the Jews: but in that more limited acceptation in which it is intimately connection with the symbolic science of Freemasonry, the Kahbalah may be defined to be a system of philosophy which embraces certain mystical interpretations of Scripture, and metaphysical speculations concerning the Deity, man, and spiritual beings. In these interpretations and speculations, according to the Jewish doctors, were enveloped the most profound truths of religion, which, to be comprehended by finite beings, are obliged to be revealed through the medium of symbols and allegories.” – The origin of Freemasonry and Knights templar by Bennett, John Richardson, (1907) pg. 184-185


Kabbalah and Freemasonry

“the substance of the Kabalah is the basis upon which Masonry is bulit, since modern Masonry is undeniably the dim and hazy reflection of primeval Occult Masonry of the teaching of those Divine Masons who established the Mysteries of prehistoric and prediluvian Temples of Initiation, raised by truly superhuman Builders.” – The Secret Doctrine: The Synthesis of Science, Religion, and Philosophy By H. P. Blavatsky, Annie Besant pg. 165

Freemasonry is not only a universal science, but a world wide religion, and owes allegiance to no one creed, and can adopt no sectarian dogma as such, without ceasing thereby to be Masonic.  Drawn from the Kabbalah, and taking the Jewish or Christian verbiage or symbols, it but discerns in them universal truths, which it recognizes in all other religions. ” -The origin of Freemasonry and Knights templar by Bennett, John Richardson, (1907) pg. 109

“The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is that of Yahveh reversed; for Satan is not a black god, but the negation of God. The Devil is the personification of Atheism or Idolatry.

For the Initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of Liberty or Free Will. They represent this Force, which presides over the physical generation, under the mythologic and horned form of the God PAN; thence came the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the Light-bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend. Gold, to the eyes of the Initiates, is Light condensed.”- Albert Pike Morals and Dogma, p.102

Cap/Corner Stone

“This stone is the spirit in man, which fell from its high position, and has been lost beneath the rubbish of the lower man. This is the true cap stone that is now hidden in the pit of man’s temple, and which he must exhume and place again as the true crown of his spiritual pyramid.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 81,83

“And Lucifer, the one rejected by man as the devil, is the one who must through the planet Mars send man the dynamic energy which man himself must transmute from the fire of passion to the flame of spirit. He then must take the tools of the craft and cut and polish his own being into the cap stone of the Universal Temple.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg. 83

“There is probably no point that is as important in connection with the pyramid as that of the corner stone. On the very top of the great pyramid is a comparatively flat place about thirty feet square. In other words the TRUE STONE WHICH IS THE HEAD OF ALL THE CORNERS IS MISSING. If we look at the reverse side of the United States seal, we find again the pyramid from which the top is separated.

The value of the stone is better understood when you understand that it completes all of the triangles atonce, and without it none of them are complete.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg 81

The Sphinx

“The Sphinx again symbolises man, with the mind and spirit of the human rising out of the animal desires and emotions.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 79

“The four fixed signs of which the Sphinx is a symbol are Taurus the Bull. Leo the Lion, Scorpio the Eagle, and Aquarius the Man, or the human head”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 79

“It is said that in ancient times the Sphinx was the gateway of the pyramid, and that there was an underground passage which led from the Sphinx to Cheopa.

This would make the symbolism even more perfect, for the gateway to the spirit is through the bodies according to the ancients.” – The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 79, 80

 

The Great Pyramid

“…said by many to be the oldest building on the surface of the earth, is the great symbol of composite man. In other words it stands for man as a unit.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 73

“…there is only one real pyramid in all the world. Even the others in Egypt are but copies of the Great Pyramid, and were used as tombs for the Pharaohs, but nobody was ever found in Cheops, nor were there ever any signs that it had been so used.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall
“All pyramids are symbols of fire,…”-Melchizedek & the Mystery of Fire by Manly P. Hall pg. 17

“Here we see the pyramid laid out so that the four triangles and the square are clearly seen. This represents man once again, and the ancient Pyramid is man offering his higher being upon the altar of the Great Fire Spirit.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 76

“The four-sided base of the pyramid represents the four elements of which man’s bodies are composed. These are hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and carbon, or earth, water, fire, and air. These are called the base of all things, and upon this base the four bodies of man are raised, each from its own element. Thus the physical body is raised from the earth. The vital body is raised from the water, the emotional body from the fire, and the mental body from the air. There are twelve lines used in the drawing of the four triangles, which stand for the twelvefold constitution of man when it is complete: the threefold body, the threefold mind, the threefold soul, and the threefold spirit. It also gives us the twelve signs of the zodiac, divided into their respective groups.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 75, 77


“It is said that in ancient times the Sphinx was the gateway of the pyramid, and that there was an underground passage which led from the Sphinx to Cheapo.

This would make the symbolism even more perfect, for the gateway to the spirit is through the bodies according to the ancients.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 79, 80


Hhh
“There are three great rooms in the pyramid which are of great interest to the student. The highest is the King’s Chamber, then below that is the Queen’s Chamber, and down below the surface of the earth is the Pit. Here we again find the great correlation between the pyramid and man. The three rooms are the three great divisions in man which are the seats of the threefold spirit.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 80

“The lower room is the generative system under the control of Jehovah. The center room or Queen’s Chamber is the heart, under the control of the Christ; and the upper room or the King’s Chamber in the brain, which is under the control of the Father. In this upper room is the coffer made of stone, the meaning of which has never been explained, but which the student recognizes as the third ventrical in the brain.

It is quite certain also that this coffer was used as a tomb during initiation, when as is the case in the Masonic initiations of today, (which are the remnants of the ancient mysteries) the candidate was buried in the earth and resurrected, a symbol of the death of the lower man and the liberation of the higher.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 80

“510 Mary “remained a virgin in conceiving her Son, a virgin in giving birth to him, a virgin in carrying him, a virgin in nursing him at her breast, always a virgin” (St. Augustine, Serm. 186, 1: PL 38, 999): with her whole being she is “the handmaid of the Lord” (Lk 1:38).” Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 510http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p122a3p2.htm

And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus. –Matthew 1:25 King James Version


Mary, Who is my mother?

46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.-Matthew 12:46-50 King JameVersion


In the Roman Catholic tradition, May is observed as Mary’s month, and in these circles May Day is usually a celebration of the Blessed Virgin Mary.


Valentine’s Day

In 496 AD, Pope Gelasius turned Lupercalia into a Christian feast day. He set its observance a day earlier, on February 14 to be the feast day in honor of Bishop of Interamna, Saint Valentine.

In 1537, King Henry VIII declared, by Royal Charter, that all England would celebrate February 14 as “Saint Valentine’s Day“.

The Catholic church decided to remove Saint Valentine’s Day from the  General Roman Calendar in 1969.


Prayers

The prayers that essentially compose the Rosary are arranged in sets of ten Hail Marys preceded by one Lord’s Prayer and followed by one Glory Be to the Father. During recitation of each set, known as a decade, thought is given to one of the Mysteries of the Rosary, which recall events in the lives of Jesus and Mary. Normally, five decades are recited in a session. Other prayers are sometimes added after each decade (in particular, the Fatima Prayer) and before (in particular, the Apostles’ Creed), and after (in particular, the Hail, Holy Queen) the five decades taken as a whole. -From Wikipedia

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. –Matthew 6:7 King James Version

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. – Hebrews 7:25 (KJV)

…The liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an “epitome of the whole Gospel,” express this devotion to the Virgin Mary. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 971)

Mary is the perfect Orans (pray-er), a figure of the Church. When we pray to her, we are adhering with her to the plan of the Father, who sends his Son to save all men. Like the beloved disciple we welcome Jesus’ mother into our homes, for she has become the mother of all the living. We can pray with and to her. The prayer of the Church is sustained by the prayer of Mary and united with it in hope. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2679)

For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, – 1 Timothy 2:5 (NIV)


Incense Burner

“That Christianity has preserved (in part at least) the primitive fire worship of antiquity is evident in many of its symbols and rituals. The incense burner so often used in Christian churches is a pagan symbol relating to the regeneration of the human soul. The incense burner represents the body of man. The incense within the burner, made from the extracted essences of various plants, represents the life forces within the body of man. The flaming spark burning in the midst of the incense is emblematic of the spiritual germ concealed in the midst of the material
organism of man. This spiritual spark is an infinitesimal part of the divine flame, the Great Fire of the Universe, from Whose
flaming heart the altar fires of all His creatures have been lighted. As the spark of life gradually consumes the incense, so the spiritual nature of man through the process of regeneration graduallyconsumes all the gross elements of the body, transmuting theminto soul power —symbolized by the smoke. Although smoke is actually a dense and physical substance yet light enough to rise in clouds, so the soul is actually a physical element, but through purification and the fire of aspiration it has taken upon itself the nature of intangible atmosphere; though composed of the substance of earth, it becomes light enough to rise as a fragrant
odor into the presence of Deity.”- Melchizedek & the Mystery of Fire by Manly P. Hall pg. 16-17
