THE CUTTING EDGE

For those of us who were Boy Scouts a few decades ago, this article is likely to shock you into disbelief. The Boy Scouts are teaching their young Scouts that, while it is good to be an American citizen, it is time to recognize that we are also global citizens. After all, as their Merit Badge booklet, "Citizenship In The World", states, the world has now entered into a "New World Order". Our children are not safe in public schools anymore, in many of our liberal churches, and now they are not safe in the Boy Scouts of America.
The Boy Scouts of America is a unique organization that has trained generations of young American boys to be men. The most fundamental Christian principles were seemingly upheld by the Boy Scouts, as well as practical training in a wide variety of areas, including Camping and Survival training. Many a young man has discovered, once he was in the military, that much of his Boy Scout training came in very handy!! Generation after generation of American parents have instinctively trusted the Boy Scouts to properly train their young sons.
Well, that period of blind faith is now over!! The Boy Scouts of America has joined the ranks of many other American institutions in training children to be good global citizens of the New World Order! All my quotes in this article are going to be taken from a Merit Badge booklet entitled, "Citizenship In The World"., copyright 1995, Boy Scouts of America, Irving, Texas, ISBN 0-8395-3260-1.
As usual, this booklet contains 95% good solid information that every young American boy should know; however, that 5% New World Order conditioning is absolutely damning. The hardest lie to confront is the one that contains mostly truth, and that is the situation facing us here in this Merit Badge booklet. In the sections I am going to quote, I feel as though I were reading from an occult book bought from a New Age bookstore on the subject of the global New World Order!
From the first paragraph, red lights were flashing in my mind, because New World Order buzz words were being constantly used, and they were being used in the context that a New Age author would use them. For example:
Thus, they are trying to persuade [scare?] these unsuspecting young scouts into believing that the only way to "solve" these supposed problems is through cooperation into a global system. A New Age author could not have done any better.
Citizenship is properly defined as "the set of privileges and freedoms, duties and responsibilities of people living in a governed community." [page 9]
I have no difficulty with this definition. However, I do have great difficulty with the fact that this "Citizenship" chapter is divided into two sections,
a) "United States Citizenship" and
b) "World Citizenship".
I have great difficulty with the teachings in this latter section. Let me quote verbatim from this short section; my comments will be bracketed, and their statements will be in quotation marks.
"World Citizenship" -- "The interdependence of today's world has broadened the meaning of civic virtue, our obligation to do the best for all people in our communities. Civic virtue no longer means only defending our nation when it is threatened. It also means respecting the global diversity of other people so that the world community can cooperate for the good of all and avoid conflict." [Again, individual nations are left intact, with a superstructure built up all around and above. This is the context of the New World Order Plan to reorganize the world into 10 Super Nations, of which NAFTA is nation #1 -- See NEWS1002, "NAFTA Fulfillment of Bible Prophecy" for full details. The danger in this emphasis on "respecting the global diversity of other people so that the world community can cooperate for the good of all and avoid conflict" is that it presupposes a World Government that can impose its will on all the peoples of the world, without really coming out to say so.]
"World citizenship affects not only a country's relationship to other countries, but also its citizen's relationship to one another. The international security of the United States is directly linked to how informed and respectful of other cultures American citizens are. Within the U.S., informed citizens will keep American society free of intolerance, racism, sexism, and cultural bias." [All sorts of arguments could be made that the international security of the United States is not at all affected by how informed and respectful American citizens might be of other cultures. How ridiculous this assertion truly is!! Yet, our young Scouts are being taught this nonsense. It is also disturbing to see that the key buzzwords of the Radical Feminists have been worked into this Scouting merit badge book, i.e., intolerance, sexism, and cultural bias. These words are consistently used to advance the cause of homosexuality and against anyone who dare disagree with their agenda, especially Born Again Christians.]
"When, as citizens of the world, Americans judge how other nations respect or violate values such as justice, freedom, equality, diversity, honesty, dignity, privacy, due process and ethical behavior, we are compelled to judge our own values and national character as well." [This sentence simply declares that Americans ARE citizens of the world! Young minds will readily accept this dogmatic assertion as FACT, accepting it readily, without critically thinking about whether this statement is true. And, what does it mean that we Americans are "compelled to judge our own values and national character"? Especially since such judgment is to be carried out based upon how other nations respect or violate the values listed above? What kind of a subjective standard is that?! We have always held that such standards are objective, not open for change, or for discussion.
Finally, while this merit badge book speaks about "ethics" on several occasions, it never mentions upon what basis these "ethics" are based. America has traditionally defined ethics in terms of the absolute standards of Christianity, and has so stated in our national discussions and institutions. But, today, such absolute standards have been rejected throughout our society, to the point where "ethics" can mean anything to anybody at anytime. Sadly, our Boy Scouts are being taught this moral relativism. Not once is Christianity or Jesus Christ mentioned in this book.]
"... Being a good world citizen means respecting the rights of other governments ... As world citizens and Americans, we must use our unique civic experience to seek and create democratic answers to global questions."
Now the cat is out of the bag! The purpose of this merit badge is to create "good world citizens". And, notice the sequence of citizenship in this last sentence: we are world citizens first and Americans second! Our Boy Scouts are being taught that American sovereignty is second to the sovereignty of the global government, which is later revealed to be the United Nations. Of course, there are many, many things wrong with teaching Global Sovereignty to our Scouts.
First, a One-World Government, Economy, and Religion is Satanic; the last time it was tried was at the Tower of Babel, where King Nimrod of Babylon was attempting to unite the world just as the New World Order Plan envisions today. God stopped this effort by causing many languages to appear, which stopped the Tower of Babel project cold. As people congregated based upon their ability to communicate, they then dispersed throughout the earth. Separate nations and cultures were formed, and a multitude of religions were spawned. All these differences prevented mankind from ever forming a One-World Government. In other words, God's Plan is for the Earth to be separated into many nations, governments, and economies, while Satan is constantly trying to bring the whole earth together again. God's Plan is many governments; Satan's Plan is to have a One-World government.
Secondly, a bold assumption is made here that the new Global Government will always be benevolent. It had better be, because it is going to possess all the military, political, and economic power in the world. If this government were to ever turn to an absolute dictatorship, the peoples of the world will be in huge trouble. Of course, we know that the New World Order Plan envisions just such an absolute dictatorship from the very beginning; they just haven't told a lot of people this fact yet.
Thirdly, while many statements are made that this New World Order will be based upon law, no one stipulates whose will might be behind the creation of laws. We assume that United Nations law will be passed by an assembly of lawmakers similar to the United States' Congress, which will be elected by the voters. But, this assumption is wrong. United Nations' laws will be created by people who never have to answer to any voters in an election. But, of course, no one is telling us that, at least in booklets such as this one!
The Changing Relations Among Countries
This chapter really moves the Boy Scout into the New World Order; it begins by quoting blatant New Age author, Alvin Tofler, who predicted that people would feel like they are in shock by all the rapid change occurring world wide in such a short period of time. Then, the chapter lists many of these changes: Communication, Advances in Television Broadcasting, Advances in Telephone Technology, Advances in Other Communication Technology, and Transportation. The general gist of this chapter is that these changes are moving the world rapidly into a One-World system.
However, the end of this chapter list all the problems which this developing technology is causing, and it sounds like the typical Extreme Environmentalism of the Extreme Left in this country. As you read these "problems" supposedly caused by our high technology, remember several parts of the New World Order Plan: 1) To end our present high technology industrial civilization 2) To deliberately "create" such enormous global problems that can only be dealt with by a global government.
Now, these are the global problems being taught our Boy Scouts, none of which is true, at least true to the global degree they are portrayed.
"In an interdependent world, the benefits of technological advances are shared, but so are the costs.
* Coal and oil reserves are running out because of the worldwide use of machines powered by internal combustion engines. Every time someone cries out that oil and coal reserves are running out, some oil man discovers new reserves heretofore unknown. As far as internal combustion engines are concerned, remember Al Gore's assertion, in his book, "Earth In The Balance", that the internal combustion engine is the greatest threat to mankind's survival?
* Tropical rain forests and other environments are being destroyed for their raw materials. While this may be true in some developing countries, it is not true globally, as has been demonstrated time and time again. The next time you hear a statistic about how many acres of forest are being destroyed per day, or per week, or per month, go to a calculator to see if this statistic makes sense. You will find that they make no sense, that they are totally fabricated
* Natural refuges and wilderness are ruined by tourist traffic ..."
This chapter concludes, "When the physical condition of our world is in danger, the global economy is in danger, too." (Page 25)
What was the New World Order Plan as the world moved into the final stages of this plan?
"When we come into our kingdom, our orators will expound great problems which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring it, at the end, under our beneficent rule. Who will ever suspect, then, that all these peoples were stage-managed by us according to a political plan which no one has so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries?" (The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion)
I would say that the orators of the New World Order are quite effectively articulating such great problems that have turned "humanity upside down", wouldn't you? Unfortunately, your Boy Scout is becoming the next victim!
New World Order of Nations
This section really identifies this merit badge for what it truly is: a conditioning tool. "A new economic world order emerged when communism collapsed and democratic governments began to form in Eastern and Central Europe." (Page 33)
They did not quite say, "New World Order" but they came really close to it. However, on page 71, they did use this terrible term, as they said, "Now that the Cold War has ended and a new world order has emerged, nations in Eastern and Central Europe and the former Soviet Union have begun to adopt democratic systems."
Do not be deceived: your beloved Boy Scout is being conditioned to accept the New World Order Plan of Satanic global government. But, of course, he is not told that this Plan is Satanic; rather, he is being introduced to these concepts with the highest rhetoric possible. When he discovers the truth, it will be too late!
Your Boy Scout is now being trained to be a good "world citizen" first and foremost. He is being trained to believe that no nation should be sovereign, that no nation can act on its own any more. Rather, only the "Community of Nations" embodied in the United Nations, can make decisions and laws. Just to ensure that the Boy Scout gets this message, the entire page 45 depicts the organizational structure of the United Nations Government.
Parents, your beloved son, your proud Boy Scout, is being subverted, being conditioned, to be a good "world citizen", and to accept the terrible pagan values about to be imposed upon this world. What can you do? You will not change the system at this point. You might perhaps persuade your local Boy Scout troop to exempt your son from having to take this merit badge, but believe me, the time is coming very soon when this type of teaching is spread wide and far throughout scouting.
As with Public Education, your only solution to protect your son may be to remove him from Scouting. Much of the life values which it teaches can be learned through other sources, both at home and at church. As terrible as this situation is, it is just one more instance of the encroachment of this terrible, terrible system called the New World Order.
The Boy Scout Memorial - Washington, D.C. - 15th Street, almost at intersection with Pennsylvania Avenue
When Chris Pinto and I scoured Washington, D.C., in preparation for our video, "Riddles In Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C.", we were walking along 15th Street toward the intersection with Pennsylvania Avenue. Suddenly, Chris stopped in his tracks and called to me across the park. He was obviously excited.
When I ran up to him, he pointed to the statute, pictured to the left. The symbolism was instantly clear: This was a depiction of the Satanic/Masonic belief in how the "Divine Child" will be produced on the world scene. What is this belief? Masons believe that the Divine Child (Masonic Christ) will be conceived and born on the spiritual plane and that conception and delivery will be transferred to the physical plane. They believe that this spiritual conception will occur as follows:
1) The Divine Father and --
2) The Divine Mother, will lay in sexual union in a spiritual dimension, producing --
3) The Divine Child who will appear on the world scene as the Masonic Christ, whom Christians will correctly call Antichrist.
This is precisely what we see in this Boy Scout Monument, above! The Divine Father is shown behind and to the right of the Divine Child while the Divine Mother is shown behind and to the left of the Divine Child. There is no doubt as to who the Masonic Christ is shown to be here: the Eagle Scout! He is a Perfected Man produced by the Divine Father and Mother.
How do occultists depict this sexual union between Divine Father and Mother, a physical relationship which produces the Divine Masonic Christ?
They depict it through the use of the geometric shape, the right-angle triangle, as shown to the left. Listen to the explanation of Masonic author, R.H. MacKenzie:
"The right-angled triangle was also regarded as an important figure. Among the Egyptians, the base represented Osiris , or the Male Principle; the perpendicular, Isis, or the Female Principle; and the hypotenuse, Horus, their sun, the Product." ["Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated", Dr. Cathy Burns, p. 34]
Incredibly, Masonic architect, Pierre L'Enfant, planned one large right-angled triangle in Government Center, called today "The L'Enfant Triangle". Later, under the direction of 33rd Degree Mason, President George Washington, a second right-angled triangle was added. That triangle is called "The Federal Triangle". These two triangles represent the Masonic Plan to produce Antichrist on the world scene.
How are the three elements of this Masonic right-angled triangle represented?
1) Horizontal portion represents the Divine Father -- In Washington, D.C., the pagan god Baal is shown in other symbols, so he is the Divine Father. In "The Federal Triangle", Baal is represented by Constitution Avenue.
2) Upright portion represents the Divine Mother, which is shown in other symbols to be the Corn Goddess, Cebele. In "The Federal Triangle", Cebele is represented by 15th Street.
Under this symbolism, the goddess is going to become pregnant with the Divine Child and deliver him at the right moment on the world scene! Because Cebele the Corn Goddess, is depicted throughout Government Center, we assume that she will be the Divine Mother; however, Black Magick Satanists hold that the Divine Mother will be the Vampire Demon-Goddess Lilith (Read full details in NEWS2391, entitled, "Jennifer's Body" Movie Resurrecting The Satanic Demon-Vampire Lilith - Antichrist Conditioning of the Masses")
Black-Magick Satanists have long maintained that Lilith will be the one to give birth to Antichrist.
3) The Hypotenuse in this triangle represents the Divine Child, whom we identify in "Eye of the Phoenix" DVD as being named "Destiny". This Perfected Man, Destiny, is depicted within the tympanum of the Federal Archives Building facing Pennsylvania Avenue, the street which represents the Divine Child.
Both L'Enfant and Federal triangles use Pennsylvania Avenue as their hypotenuse. This hypotenuse is the Masonic Christ, the Perfect Man, 'Destiny', who rules the world in the tympanum atop the Federal Archives Building looking over Pennsylvania Avenue.
Therefore, the Eagle Scout featured in this memorial is the "Perfected Man" or the Divine Child, named "Destiny". Notice, also, where this Boy Scout Memorial is located. It is on 15th Street, which is the upright, or female, portion of the Federal Triangle. And, it is only a very short distance from the point where 15th Street intersects with Pennsylvania Avenue, the hypotenuse of the Federal Triangle, representing "Destiny", the Divine Child.
As I contemplated the role which the Eagle Scout was given in this memorial -- that of the Masonic Perfected Christ -- my thoughts gravitated toward the role of Freemasonry in founding the Boy Scout Movement in the first place. Was there strong Masonic leadership at the very beginning of the Boy Scouts? As it turns out, yes there certainly was.
The Boy Scouting Movement was founded by a British former General of the Army, Robert Baden-Powell, also known as "1st Baron Baden-Powell" (Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia).
"On his return from Africa in 1903, Baden-Powell found that his military training manual, Aids to Scouting, had become a best-seller, and was being used by teachers and youth organisations. Following his involvement in the Boys' Brigade as Brigade Secretary and Officer in charge of its scouting section, with encouragement from his friend, William Alexander Smith, Baden-Powell decided to re-write Aids to Scouting to suit a youth readership ... The first book on the Scout Movement, Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys was published in six installments in 1908, and has sold approximately 150 million copies as the fourth best selling book of the 20th century."
Now, the question of the hour is, was Robert Baden-Powell a Freemason? While there is no evidence that Baden-Powell was a Mason, there most definitely was Masonic influence in his life and in early Scouting. Listen to this Masonic article, carried on an official British Columbia Masonic website.
"Lord Baden-Powell must clearly have approved of Freemasonry, for he presented to the first lodge to bear his name (No. 488, Victoria) the Volume of Sacred Law which is still in use. Its fly leaf was thus inscribed by him: 'With best wishes for the success of the lodge in its good work, Baden-Powell of Gilwell. 12th May 1931'. His grandson, Hon. David Michael Baden-Powell was initiated in this lodge and remains an active member'. Lodge records show him to be a Past Master of the lodge." ("Freemasonry and Lord Baden-Powell", Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon)
This Masonic article continues:
"It is well known that Baden-Powell borrowed heavily from his friend Rudyard Kipling when he created the Cub Scout programme. Kipling was initiated in Lodge Hope and Perseverance at Lahore. He often mentioned the Craft in his writings: The Mother Lodge being only one example. There is a mallet and chisel in the museum of the District Grand Lodge of the Punjab in Lahore, a gift from Bro. Kipling with his handwritten note. If one looks closely at the structure, beliefs and goals of both movements, it can be seen that they inculcate the highest ideals of respect for the individual and society combined with a sense of duty and responsibility manifested in self reliance, service to others and charity to all."
"Lady Olave Baden-Powell (1889/02/22-1977/06/19), has confirmed that B-P was not a freemason, but that his younger brother, Major David Baden-Powell, was a member of the Craft."
Now, let us turn our attention to the influence of Freemasonry in the organization and ideals of Boy Scouting.
"B-P’s Scouting movement had emphasized campaigning, camp life, tracking, chivalry, lifesaving, citizenship, etc. He devised the promise and law, the sign, salute and handshake. Each grade of Masonry, of course, has its own promises (obligations), hailing signs and handshakes (grips). One could also point out that the hierarchy of Scouting, a system of ranks culminating in the Eagle, is similar to Freemasonry, a system of degrees that in the Scottish Rite culminates in the Double Eagle. There are seven ranks in Scouting; seven steps figure prominently in the Middle Chamber Lecture of the Masonic 2nd Degree. Philosophically, a Scout’s duty to God and Country, his brotherhood and the slogan 'Do a good turn daily' is something with which any Freemason would concur." ("Freemasonry, Scouting and the Order of the Arrow", by S.M. Adkins)
American Boy Scouting was very heavily influenced by Freemasonry.
"On July 16, 1915, two Scouters named E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson founded the Order of the Arrow at Treasure Island, the summer camp of the Philadelphia Council. Edson was a 32° Scottish Rite Mason; Goodman only became a Mason after the OA was founded but also eventually attained the 32°. The writing of the ritual, however, was entrusted to another, unknown 32° Mason .... What happened in 1934 was a 'de-Masonification' of the OA nomenclature, but the basic Masonic structure remains. The Order of the Arrow consists of three honors: Ordeal, Brotherhood (known in 1927 as the “blood-rite” degree!) and Vigil Honor. These correspond to the three Masonic degrees of Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason. In the OA, each honor has its own handshake, hailing sign, and 'password'. (For the Ordeal this is called the admonition. The Brotherhood member responds to a ritual question. The Vigil Honor has three watchwords.) Each honor has its own obligation and ceremony that intensifies the teachings of the Order. In Masonry, each degree has its own grip, step, sign, password and obligation. We have already noted that they are both organized into Lodges; in the OA one National Lodge enforces regularity. For Freemasonry there is a Grand Lodge for every state." (Ibid.)
"And what of the OA initiation ceremonies? First, the Lodge is opened after it has been determined 'all present are members'. This is done by demanding the handshake and password of the honor to be performed from those present. In the Ordeal, for example, the admonition is whispered into the ears of a member by a chief called Kichkinet while hands are clasped, and the member responds by whispering its’ definition. The Lodge is then opened during which time the sign of the degree is given. The candidates are announced and Kichkinet is sent out to greet them." (Ibid.)
"In Freemasonry the Lodge is opened in the same manner. Membership is determined with the grip and word, whispered into the ear, hands clasped, and the Lodge is opened on the sign of the degree. The candidates are announced and the Junior Warden is sent out to greet the candidates." (Ibid.)
We encourage you to read this entire article, for it gives great detail between the Boy Scouts and Freemasonry.
Now that we understand the Masonic foundation of Boy Scouting worldwide, we can better understand the two major points of this article:
1) How Boy Scout manuals can suddenly start teaching New World Order globalist principles to its young men;
2) How a Boy Scout can be symbolically used to represent the Masonic Christ, "Destiny", in the Boy Scout Memorial on 15th Street, Washington, D.C.
Now our understanding of the Boy Scout Movement is complete, is it not? Masons have been training tens of millions of young men in the principles of pagan Freemasonry since 1908! Christian parents by the many millions whose sons were Boy Scouts had no idea that Scouting was based upon Masonry. Truly, Satan has been able to sink his talons deeply into the entire Western World through the secret society, Freemasonry.
The time is speeding by quickly when the Masonic Plan to produce Antichrist will become reality.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
