Religions: The Occult Connection
by David J. Stewart
I've written a Gospel tract specifically for members of occult religions, using Microsoft Publisher 2000. You can download the .pub file HERE if you'd like to have it. It's 6 MB because of all the photos. You can view the actual tract here. You must have Microsoft Publisher 2000, or more recent, to open this file—then you can print it to distribute. You may also want to write your own tracts. Below is exactly what the tract looks like, front and back. It prints on standard size paper. People love pictures, and these images speak volumes against these false religions. This is the truth, however creepy and disturbing. This tract is not for the average person, but for members of occult false religions specifically. They have been indoctrinated and need to have their eyes opened to the truth. This is the truth!I believe that the best way to deal with a member of any religion is to give them the plain and simple Gospel. You win a Mormon to the Lord the same exact way that you lead a Jehovah's Witness (JW) to the Lord, and that is, by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9). Albeit, it is next to impossible to get a Jehovah's Witness to admit they are lost. The JW religion deliberately indoctrinates their members with human reasoning in such a way that the Bible is virtually rendered useless (Mark 7:13).Showing the Gospel to a JW is a waste of time in most cases because they are indoctrinated by Satan. The best thing you can show a Jehovah's Witness is the giant New World Order pyramid parked on top of Charles Taze Russell's grave stone (see photos below) and remind them why Russell rewrote the Bible and called it the NEW WORLD TRANSLATION. Russell founded the JW's in 1874. Challenge them to do a study concerning religion and the occult. They need to know the truth. Also, Russell was a 33rd degree occult Freemason, which is easily verifiable. So was Joseph Smith who founded the Mormons, and Ron Hubbard who founded Scientology. Wicked Freemasonry is the common denominator. There never was a more vile, evil and hideous organization than the Freemasons, an organization within an organization.I like to show people the occult connection between nearly all modern mainstream religions. If you can convince them that they are lost, then they'll get saved. They are in religion because they are seeking for the truth, but they think they have the truth, because Satan has blinded them with religion (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Religion wants to fit us with glasses, but the Lord wants to open our eyes with the truth (John 18:37). Jeremiah 17:5, “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.”The hardest part about getting a person saved is first convincing them that they are lost. That's right, lost. Proverb 26:12, “Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.” A fool who knows he is lost is just a step away from salvation; but the conceited religious man who thinks his false religion can save him is two steps away from being saved. First, he must admit that he is lost. Second, he must trust the Savior to be saved. Religion blinds men to the truth, thus taking them farther away from salvation, convincing them that religion can save them.The way I witness to a Jehovah's Witness, Mormon, Scientologist, Seventh Day Adventist or any other person who is part of an occult religion is to show them the truth about the New World Order. It is the truth, and that's what they need to hear. Here is the online version of this Gospel tract...
Religions: The occult connection
The truth shall make you free!
What if I were to tell you my friend, that most of the religious people in this world were being misled? What if I were to tell you, that there is a vast Satanic conspiracy to deceive the masses of every society on earth? What if I were to tell you that the top leaders of the world’s religions were in league with the Devil? Would you think I’m crazy? I would! Yet, the truth is stranger than fiction!
You have been lied to my friend. Few people in the world today are aware of just how much Satan has infiltrated organized religion. The Word of God warns us in 2nd Corinthians 11:13,14 that Satan and his false teachers, always come to us in sheep’s clothing to deceive us …
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”Our only defense is the incorruptible Word of God. The Bible also warns us in 2nd Timothy 4:3, that in the last days, people will no longer listen to the truth …
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.”All we see on TV are televangelists begging for more money, telling people what they want to hear—promises of health, wealth, and prosperity; BUT, they never preach against sin, and never tell people that trusting in good works for salvation is a road straight to Hell. Well, I’m going to share with you the truth of God’s Word because I care about you.
Let me state right from the start, that salvation is not found in ANY religion; BUT, only in a Person—The Lord Jesus Christ. No amount of good works can take a person to Heaven. Only through the precious blood of Jesus Christ can a person have their sins forgiven, and be saved eternally (1st Peter 1:18,19).
Satan is so subtle. One of the biggest Satanic deceptions today are false prophets who preach the Gospel (I.e., the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ); BUT, then ADD works to it. Such false prophets are Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc. They all teach works salvation. The Word of God clearly states in Romans 4:5 …
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”The Biblical Gospel excludes ALL self-righteousness!
The Occult connectionWe see the occult everywhere nowadays. The most common symbols are the illuminati pyramid and the all-seeing eye of Horus. You see friend, 2nd Corinthians 4:4 reveals that Satan is the god of this world’s wickedness.
Satan controls the world through occult (secret) organizations, who’s members are devout followers of Satan. “Illuminati” is a term used to refer to the occult-inspired leaders of this world. Hitler was infatuated with the occult, as were many of histories top leaders.
George W. Bush and John Kerry are BOTH members of the occult group, Skull and Bones (represented by the official symbol in the photo to the right). What’s even more disturbing is that we see the exact same Satanic emblem displayed on the Catholic cross below…
Above : A Catholic priest holds an occult cross, carefully notice the Skull and Bones emblem.One of the biggest occult groups is Freemasonry, who’s false god is Baphomet, pictured to the right. Few people know that Charles Taze Russell (founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses), and Joseph Smith (founder of Mormonism) were BOTH 33rd degree Freemasons.
I was watching EWTN (the Catholic’s Eternal Word Television Network) the other day. It was their morning mass between 8 to 9A.M. daily.
Lo and behold, the priest was walking around with a golden monstrance (shaped like an illuminati pyramid) for everyone to see. This is no coincidence. The photo to the left is the official symbol of the Masonic lodge. Notice the illuminati pyramid at the top, and the occult handshake beneath. Also, notice the eye of Horus within the pyramid. This is pure Satanism folks!
Keep reading, you may lose some sleep tonight. Take a look at the occult illuminati eye in the photo below.
Above: A Mormon apron as seen on A&E TV, inside the Salt Lake City Temple.This apron is located in the Mormon temple in Salt Lake City. Below is the front entrance to the same Mormon temple. Notice the same Masonic handshake (as seen above) within the all-seeing eye.
You see, the Devil requires allegiance from those who would become successful in this world. This allegiance has infested the music industry, and the corporate world as well. Satan is working relentlessly to corrupt the masses. The image below is sister Faustina’s Image of Divine Mercy, worshipped around the world by Catholics...Above: Another entrance to the Salt Lake City, Utah, Mormon Temple. Mormon founder, Joseph Smith, was a 33rd degree Freemason. See, Mormonism and Freemasonry.
False prophetess, Ellen G. White, founder of the Seventh-day Adventists (SDA) religion, has a large Freemasonry Obelisk marking her grave. Seventh Day Adventism is steeped in the New World Order, often displaying occult symbols on their literature and magazines. Notice in the SDA images below that one of the eyes is always darkened, which represents Lucifer. The eye symbolizes light entering the body, or soul. There are many evidences of this truth, far more than an alleged “conspiracy” theory as the occultists themselves like to propagate...
On the surface, Freemasonry looks wholesome, as does Seventh-Day Adventism (SDA). There is fellowship, loyalty, brotherhood and the support of good causes such as Shriners hospitals, philanthropy and good works. The Masonic motto is “Making good men better.” Unfortunately, making a good man better doesn't get him into Heaven. Jesus commanded, “Ye must be born again!” (John 3:7). Read about the Luciferian god of Freemasonry called, “THE GREAT ARCHITECT.”
Below are some more creepy occult images of the SDA religious cult. What Does The All-Seeing Eye Mean? ...
Below is a photo of where Jehovah’s Witness’ founder, Charles T. Russell, is buried in the Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center Cemetery. As you can see, Satan is behind ALL false religion. Notice the creepy illuminati pyramid …
Freemasons Donate Illuminati Pyramid as Gift for Grave of Mary Baker EddyChristian Science is another False Masonic ReligionAbove: This is the inscription on the same pyramid above, where Jehovah’s Witness’ founder, and occult Mason, Charles T. Russell, is buried. Freaky huh?
Above: a close-up of the inscription on the pyramid.
Above is the logo for the Church of Scientology cult. Notice the two illuminati Pyramids!
Mary Baker Eddy is the founder of the CHRISTIAN SCIENTIST religion. They have reading rooms all across the United States where you can go in, sit down, and be indoctrinated into their religious false cult. It is more than mere coincidence that the demonic Jehovah's Witnesses gave an Masonic pyramid to place on Eddy's grave, just as Charles Russell (founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses) has a giant illuminati pyramid parked on his grave (as seen above).
Freemasons are the visible organization, the work horse to carry out Satan's sinister plot for a Godless Global Totalitarian Communism Police State, aka, a New World Order. Russell even named his perversion of the Bible, the New World Translation. That's about as blatant as you can get.
When I witness to a Jehovah's Witnessed, I show them a photo of Russell's grave and the occult connection between the religions. Most Jehovah's Witnesses are victims of the organization, they've been lied to and deceived. We as believers need to expose all these Masonic religions for what they are. Freemasonry is a diabolic, Satanic, religious cult; they operate in dual fashion, literally operating as two separate entities, an organization within an organization.
What is it with all the pyramids and all-seeing eyes? The explanation is simple. Satan uses images, just as “The Great Oz” in the movie, The Wizard of Oz. Satan is the little peon behind the curtain (Isaiah 14:16). The purpose of the IMAGE is to magnify a person, or thing, to give a bigger than life IMAGE. This is why king Nebuchadnezzar had a 90-foot tall, 9-foot wide, statue made of gold for the people to bow and worship, on his behalf.
1921 - On the 100th anniversary of Mary Baker Eddy's birth, an exact replica of the Great Pyramid, made from a single piece of granite and weighing over 100 tons and 11 feet on each side, was carved and placed near the house where Eddy had been born, in New Hampshire. It was a gift from Freemasons. In the "Mary Baker Eddy Letter," December 25, 1997, we learn that when "the Board of Directors noted that too many Christian Scientists were visiting the grand granite marker at Bow ... that marked Mary Baker Eddy's birthplace, they had it destroyed, dynamited to bits!"
Eddy's first husband, George Washington Glover, was a Mason, and "thereafter membership in the Masonic Order was the one single 'outside' affiliation that was allowed to church members by Mrs. Eddy."
Christian Science and Freemasonry have maintained a symbiotic relationship. Many of the first churches established around the United States had gathered in Masonic Temples. To this day one can find the headquarters for many Christian Science associations having an address corresponding to the local Masonic lodge.

What you see on the tombstone of the founder of the Watchtower movement is the Knights Templar Symbol for the York Rite of Freemasonry (See below). This degree is equivalent to the 33rd Degree of Freemasonry and is the highest degree of the York Rite indicating that he knew whom he was serving. It was not Jesus Christ of Nazareth to be sure.
Who Are Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] Fans Really Worshipping?I preach a lot against CCM singers, because they are deceivers. No one wonders what Marilyn Manson is about. We all know that he rips up Bibles, hates God and is a fool. However, sinister ecumenical ministers and apostate so-called Christian singers claim to love God and want to reach people with A MESSAGE of love and unity; BUT the sad truth is that they are leading churchgoers into apostasy, a false Catholic Gospel, and unbiblical unity with unbelievers. ChristianityToday even labels God as a Drama Queen (it is apostasy)! They ought to be honest and call themselves apostates!We all know where Elton John stands; but TobyMac deceives people, and it is sinful to do so. TobyMac claims to be helping his fans through his music; but he is leading them astray, pushing them toward the Catholic religion. Pope Benedict XVI says people can be saved without any Biblical faith. Pope Benedict XVI is a fool. ALL CCM singers accept the Catholic Church and never say a negative word, because many of their fans are Catholic... cha-ching, money, money, money! At least Pink Floyd sings about money and doesn't try to hide anything. God hates a proud look and a lying tongue (Proverb 6:16-19).The Old Testament tells us that wicked king Nebuchadnezzar set up an golden IMAGE and demanded that everyone worship the IMAGE or be killed...Daniel 3:5-7, “That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up. And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.”Carefully notice that Revelation 13:15 tells us that the same thing will happen when the Antichrist comes, i.e., he will demand worship of the IMAGE (just as Nebuchadnezzar did), or else the masses of people will be killed...Revelation 13:15, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”It is very interesting that king Nebuchadnezzar didn't ask the people to worship him directly; but instead, worship an IMAGE. Nebuchadnezzar wanted to be worshipped, but he knew that he was just a man; so he needed an image 90-feet tall of pure gold to magnify himself through the image. The Antichrist will just be a man; but he will magnify himself through an IMAGE that the Bible says will speak and come to life (Revelation 13:15).Those who refuse to worship the Beast's IMAGE will be killed, just as Nebuchadnezzar proclaimed death to anyone who didn't bow to worship his IMAGE. This is important to understand, showing us why Satan is using the Masonic pyramid and All-seeing Eye to recruit followers to the New World Order. It is for the same purpose as Nebuchadnezzar's IMAGE.So where does Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] come into play? It's for the same purpose as all worldly music today. Daniel 3:5, “That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up.” Everyone was instructed to worship Nebuchadnezzar's image when they heard the music, all kinds of music. The Bible lists all sorts of musical instruments. It wasn't about singing or lyrics, but THE MUSIC.Likewise, in these Last Days Satan is conditioning the masses of this world to worship the Beast, and the IMAGE of the Beast, through music. The similarities between Nebuchadnezzar's IMAGE and the Antichrist's IMAGE are more than mere coincidental. Satan's methods haven't changed in thousands of years.Let's go further...George Harrison of The Beatles sang his hit song, MY SWEET LORD. Christian youth all across the world and America were singing along... My Sweet Lord. But then AT THE END of the song, Harrison deceitfully changed the lyrics to, MY SWEET LORD, HARE KRISHNA!!! Harrison's 1971 song MY SWEET LORD, is a song of praise to the Hindu god, Krishna. In fact, Harrison admits that he did that to trick people.In his 1982 interview with the Hare Krishna organization George Harrison stated..."I wanted to show that Hallelujah and Hare Krishna are quite the same thing. I did the voices singing 'Hallelujah' and then the change to 'Hare Krishna' so that people would be chanting the maha-mantra-before they knew what was going on! I had been chanting Hare Krishna for a long time, and this song was a simple idea of how to do a Western pop equivalent of a mantra which repeats over and over again the holy names. I don't feel guilty or bad about it; in fact it saved many a heroin addict's life." [emphasis added]People who would normally be offended by someone praising “Hare Krishna my sweet Lord,” were caught off guard by the way the song was arranged. The listener would follow along with the words “Hallelujah, my sweet Lord” several times before it subtly changed to “Hare Krishna, my sweet Lord.”By that time the listener had already been mesmerized by the music and the song. George Harrison was an imposter who rejected Jesus Christ, and is burning in the fires of Hell forever because he died in his sins without Jesus Christ. I say this with sadness. 2nd Peter 3:9 declares that “God is not willing for any to perish” in their sins.CCM is leading the religious world into the New World Order. This is plainly evidenced by all the occult imagery on their album covers, and the Ecumenical Movement (i.e., let's unite by error, rather than divide over truth). CCM's true colors will come out IN THE END, when the Antichrist appears; just as George Harrison's song MY SWEET LORD, deceived millions of people to worship Hare Krishna of the Hindu religion. You are being deceived my friend.Yes, Contemporary Christian Music is beautiful. Third Day, Mercy Me and Tree63 sing some really pretty music, uplifting one's spirit. I am a musician, so I love all kinds of music, naturally. But as a Christian I have to side with THE TRUTH, and God's Word. I don't like being the bearer of bad news; but if the bad news is THE TRUTH, then so be it.The Gospel is two-thirds bad news... Jesus died and was buried. Those were very sad occasions to the Lord's friends, even though they knew it was necessary for redemption. So even though the Gospel is two-thirds bad news, we call it the “Gospel” (i.e., the good news) because it was all a good thing that the Lord was doing to redeem us. Amen!I've researched the CCM crowd and their music, and they're all rubbing shoulders with the sinful world. They're all using corrupt Bibles. They're all doctrinally compromised, prioritizing love and unity over truth and righteousness. They all sell their music for profit and the CCM industry rakes in billions-of-dollars annually. The lyrics are extremely vague and none of their websites tell anyone how to be saved to enter Heaven.It is self-evident that music will be a big part of Satan's New World Order. Just as millions of fans idolize their favorite Rock stars these days, so will the masses of society idolize and worship the Antichrist when he comes; who may very well be a Rock star, such as Bono from U2 (who is a member of the CFR and has worldwide influence). If 11,000,000 Americans will buy Marilyn Manson's garbage, then they'll certainly follow the Antichrist when he comes.Thus, you now know why Satan is using IMAGES. The purpose is the exact same reason that the Wizard of Oz constructed a giant fire-breathing Oz, bellowing out, “I AM THE GREAT OZ,” to intimidate people. Here is what the Bible teaches about Lucifer, the Devil... Isaiah 14:16, “They that see thee [Satan] shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms.” The all-seeing eye is bigger than life, and all the occult symbols around us; behind shoved in our faces, and down our throats... saying, We are the great architects of the New World Order, composed of Freemasons and other occult organizations, Luciferian worshippers, and you are our slaves!!!
The All-Seeing Eye, Occult Images are Everywhere!
Just as wicked king Nebuchadnezzar made an IMAGE for the people to bow to, so will the Devil make an IMAGE when the Antichrist comes, and kill those who refuse to bow (Revelation 13:15); just as Nebuchadnezzar ordered death to anyone who didn't bow to his golden IMAGE (Daniel 3:5-7).
The New World Order will adhere to a Luciferian religion.
Clearly, there is an occult connection between many false religions and Satan. You don’t have to believe it if you don’t want to, but the evidence is solid.
As I mentioned earlier, Satan requires an allegiance. The photo to the right shows the CBS’ logo—the all-seeing eye. To the left, an illuminati eye is seen in a Starbuck’s window.
Society is so infested with Satanism that few people even realize what is happening nowadays. Below is an image from Nickelodeon….
This is why the apostate Israelites in the Wilderness demanded a golden calf, an IMAGE, to bow and worship. They needed an object of worship, something bigger than themselves.This is why the wicked men at Babel rose against God to build a Tower, a place, something bigger than themselves to unite them as one, but without God. The Antichrist will create an IMAGE, and demand that everyone worship it or die (Revelation 13:15).Why do world leaders and the who's who of top corporations and newsmedia meet at Bohemia Grove every July in California to worship a 40-foot owl? Again, we see an IMAGE. Images and symbols are critically important to occult and Luciferian Devil worship. Since it is not befitting for men to outright admit to worshipping Satan, then disguise their worship with IMAGES instead. The Illuminati have created a bigger-than-life feeling around the world with their Masonic pyramid and all-seeing eye.We see this in the “HOLLYWOOD” sign in West Hollywood. That sign generates a bigger-than-life feeling and atmosphere; just seeing the sign, because it appears in so many movies, and it has become a part of everyday life in the United States. Likewise, we are seeing the Masonic pyramid and all-seeing eye everywhere these days; they have become a part of our daily lives, embedded in our brains, and I sincerely believe that the Antichrist's IMAGE (Revelation 13:15) may be the all-seeing eye and The Great Pyramid (it is very interesting that The Great Pyramid, thought to have been built around 2,600 B.C., never had the capstone put into place). The Masonic pyramid on the back of every dollar has the capstone separated from the base. The capstone are the Illuminati, the architects of the New World Order, the occult elite.The fact that The Great Pyramid was built without a capstone indicates that the New World Order has been in the planning for millenniums. God segregated men at Babel, scattering people across the world, to safeguard humanity from corruption (Acts 17:26-27); Satan has been trying to undo what God did, and unite men against God ever since. Today, in God's permissive and sovereign will, Satan is uniting the world; breaking down language, cultural and denominational barriers, to unite men once again against God in a Luciferian worship (New Age).This is why apostate Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] singers, sinister ecumenical ministers, and the entire secular world, are all promoting unity in every form. This is why so many movies, like JUNGLE FEVER, featuring interracial marriage, have been used to corrupt America, breaking down cultural barriers. This is why the U.S. borders remain wide open, because without a border there is no country. The evil elite powers controlling everything from behind the scenes."No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation."-David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations
What does this all mean?Few people realize just how connected false religions are with the occult, and Satan. Freemasonry is of the Devil, forbidding any of it’s members from praying “in Jesus’ name” in any of their lodges! Freemasonry teaches the New Age lie that there are many paths to the light; BUT, the Word of God declares in John 14:6 there’s ONLY one …
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”It’s Jesus or Hell. All the religion in the world never saved anyone. In fact, religion is the worst thing that ever happened to this sin-cursed world! Jesus came to set us free from sin, and to give us eternal life through His blood …
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” -Colossians 1:14If you’d like to know for sure, that if you died today you would go to Heaven, then simply believe upon Jesus Christ, who came to this earth as God Almighty in the flesh (John 1:1,14; Colossians 2:9), to die for your sins and mine. Simply ask Jesus to forgive your sins, and trust Him ALONE for your salvation. Adding anything to faith alone in Christ is NO faith at all (Ephesians 2:8,9). Won’t you trust Jesus now as your personal Savior?
