I did in fact see the movie Titanic...it is airing on FMC at this very moment.

Problem is, I saw the movie when I was in high school and had three hours of my life to waste. Now, I value my time.

I would also prefer if you just provide YOUR talking points, in your own words/voice, so I can better understand your initial point.

Thank you kindly.


No, I'm not supporting your laziness. If you wished to watch it you'd make time.

If you never have 2 hrs of free time, here's an idea...

Keep a pad and paper beside your PC monitor, there are little numbers on the bottom of the video. When you need to stop the vid, jot down where you are time-wise with the video, then when you come back to it a day or two later, slide the little triangle to that point in time you left off.

I'm not doing your homework for you, I watched the video, if you want to watch it, please do.

He pronounces it "Illuminutty" on purpose. Glad you caught that. And my father is a 32 degree master mason, he said this guy is spot on.

Perhaps you should take another look.

Let me ask you a Q: Does the Bible forbid us to take oaths or not?

Oh, you like anagrams? Cool. "Novus Ordo Seclorum" is an anagram of "Velour Condoms Sour".. perhaps our founding fathers were recommending against safe oral sex when the only option for protection was velvet?

It's also an anagram of "Clove Snood Rumours". So all those things you've heard about aromatic dried flowers being woven into loose knit caps? Not true.

Nah, you'd probably prefer "Clouds Over Moor Sun". At least that could possibly tie into some sort of war between different NWO factions, right?

Snip

Actually if you read and understand the Bible, no, it does not.

Admittedly some individuals have taken what is said WAY out of context and claim it does, but it doesn't.

You're a Snip

An accurate translation of Novus Ordo Seclorum is:
"A New Order of the Ages"



One day in 1934, while Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace was waiting to meet with Secretary of State Cordell Hull, he looked through a State Department publication titled, "The History of the Seal of the United States."

Roosevelt, as he looked at the colored reproduction of the Seal, was first struck with the representation of the "All Seeing Eye," a Masonic representation of The Great Architect of the Universe. Next he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 but that it would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt like myself was a 32nd degree Mason.

He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill rather than a coin and took the matter up with the Secretary of the Treasury... He brought it up in Cabinet meeting and asked James Farley [Postmaster General and a Roman Catholic] if he thought the Catholics would have any objection to the "All Seeing Eye" which he as a Mason looked on as a Masonic symbol of Deity. Farley said "no, there would be no objection."*


FDR's notes on the preliminary draft of the new dollar design.

When the first draft came back from the Treasury, the obverse eagle side was on the left of the bill as is heraldic practice. Roosevelt insisted that the order be reversed so that the phrase "of the United States" would be under the eagle side.

A History of the Great Seal of the United States

LOL, that's a lie. Or a statement from ignorance.

Anything more than a "Yay" or "Nay" is from the Devil.

Thank you, but I do not have a wife.
I am at work, the only place I have a internet connection.
I do not have the itme, very simply, to watch a silent picture as I can not listen to the video at work.
as I've already mentioned, I have no connection at home.
So, please address the points that directly relate to Masonry please.

It is a tad long to be honest.

Is providing a synopsis of key points all that much to ask also?

Just a small point about oaths. The Bible regularly instructs people to swear oaths:

Deuteronomy 6:13
Deuteronomy 10:20
Exodus 22:10-11

There's one in Isaiah too, but I can't find it at the moment.

It was an important part of Jewish culture.

Jesus' whole point was that it would be better never to swear an oath at all than to use it like the Jewish leaders were: to sin.

Context, people.

Unfortunately, literalists love taking one verse and presenting it as doctrine.

*sigh*

Oh my.....good Christian, aren't you?


Again, if you read AND UNDERSTAND the Bible...don't just take what some slick-haired Bible-thumping preacher yells at you from the pulpit, oaths are justified in both the Hebrew Scriptures (“Old Testament” if you prefer) as well as in the New Testament. They are, under the proper conditions, acts of virtue paid to our God. The faithful from the beginning of time have used oaths and throughout the history of the Church their properness has been affirmed by doctrinal decrees and canonical legislation.

When Christ said not to swear at all (Matthew 5:34) he meant for us to be so truthful in our words that our fellow creatures could believe us without the NEED of an oath. He didn’t forbid their use under proper circumstances. For example Jeremiah 4:2 where we are cautioned to consider the necessity or use of an oath and not be guilty of irreverence toward God by invoking His aid in trivial matters.

Swearing without sufficient reason is what he cautioned us not to do. To make a promissory oath, one must be certain he MEANS what he says. Swearing falsely is a mortal sin---for it is calling upon God to witness a lie.

It is not a sin to take an oath. And that's not from ignorance. It's from understanding.

If you're going to result to insults and name-calling, though, well, never mind. I don't suppose you'd understand, nor care.

I took an oath when I was called for jury duty.

I also took one when I got married.

I took another one when I stated I would protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

Maybe I should pack some SPF 10,000 for the lake of fire.
