Norman Vincent Peale - Freemason Masquerades as Christian

September 10, 2018

Can a Christian be a Freemason?

No. Freemasons are Satanists, whether they know it
or not. They masquerade as Christians and thus subvert the faith. They have credibility because some of their ideas are valid. In his book, The Power of Positive Thinking, (1955) Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993) touched on a universal truth, that we
create our reality by virtue of our thoughts. 
Below, a reader takes me to task for referencing
Peale in this connection.

by Evelyn

I enjoy your articles and your tweet feed.  Knowing your feelings toward Masons, I found it a bit strange to see Norman Vincent Peale staring me in the face in your latest article.  

"He was a member of the Woodbridge Lodge in Brooklyn, grand chaplain of the grand lodge in NY, life member of the crescent shrine temple in Trenton N.J. and past imperial grand chaplain of the shrine. 

Peale wrote in the Masonic Magazine, stating, "Men of different religions meet in fellowship and brotherhood under the fatherhood of God." " 

His beliefs were far from those of Christianity.  Another of the false prophets, as was Billy Graham.  Peale's has acknowledged that his theology of positive thinking came Ernest Holmes, founder of New Age/Occultic Church of Religious Science (Ernest Holmes, The First Religious Scientist, James Reid, p. 14). The phrase "Positive Thinking" came originally from Charles Fillmore, but it was Peale who made it a cultural icon. (of course Robert Schuller used it as well.)

Peale, whose occult beliefs not only had a great influence on the world and church, has been praised by evangelical leaders. Even evangelist Billy Graham commended his books and magazines are read by millions of evangelical Christians! Ignored for his heresies and left unexposed he has had a tremendous influence on the Church through his numerous disciples

In 1984 Norman Vincent Peale was interviewed on the Phil Donahue program,  said, "It's not necessary to be born again. You have your way to God; I have mine. I found eternal peace in a Shinto shrine ...I've been to Shinto shrines, and God is everywhere:"

Shocked by this, Phil Donahue responded, "But you're a Christian minister; you're supposed to tell me that Christ is the way and the truth and the life, aren't you?" Peale replied, "Christ is one of the ways. God is everywhere." (Christian News, May 12, 1997, 11.) 

Would anyone who holds to Christ being their Lord deny him in such a blatant manner? This is beyond question a horrible statement that rejects Christ's Lordship.  Donahue was shocked and rightly so, but the church was not. He received no backlash or correction for this. Peale was a Universalist, believing that everyone is going to heaven as long as they believe in god, any god. That is not a Christian position.

Peale, was very much involved in the occult as he claimed to have been in touch with discarnates on several occasions. Of one encounter, Peale wrote: "I was seated on the platform of a large auditorium .... Some ten thousand persons . . . were singing hymns .... Then I "saw" him, my father who had died long before at age eighty-five. He came striding down the aisle . . . about forty years old .... I was spellbound... [by] what I was "seeing." The huge auditorium faded away. I was only with him. Getting closer, he smiled that great smile of his. He raised his arm in the old-time gesture .... I arose from the chair, advanced to the edge of the platform., reaching for him. Then he was gone, leaving me shaken, somewhat embarrassed by my actions, but happy at the same time ...."

Peale endorsed the book The Jesus Letters by Jane Palzere and Anna Brown. "What a wonderful gift to all of us from you is your book. You will bless many by this truly inspired book." This was a book communicated through a process known as automatic writing by a spirit who called himself Jesus.

In The Magic Power of Your Mind by Natter Germain, Peale is cited 4 times in agreement with the books stated purpose: "[It] shows how you can harness ESP, hypnotism, telepathy, clairvoyance and auto- suggestion to achieve health, wealth and happiness beyond your dreams."
I know there is no way humanly  possible for you to know everything...but you incredibly cover so many areas!  Just in case you were not aware of Peale, I wanted to clue you in.   Keep up your good work.
I pray that someday soon you will be able to KNOW my Lord and Savior in a very personal way and have your own relationship with Him.

First Comment from Chad -

Indeed, Christianity is but one of the many roads that leads to the same place.  Christians think too highly of themselves.  All these "great" "religions" are franchises, cut from the same block of astro-theology.  Christians worship the Sun, Jews Saturn and Muslims the Moon. Other faiths share in the same arrangements.  You'll notice Indians and Asians (Hindus and Buddhists) with their idols having the same sun crown on their deities.  You're not worshiping a person.  You're giving praise to the light of your life.  The Sun!  You see, it's all Sun, star and planet worship, at the end of the day.

 Peale is correct in his statement of our shared association.  No need to use terms such as fraternity or brotherhood.  We can include both genders.  Christians need to grow up.  The world doesn't revolve around you.  You represent the Age of Pisces.  Just as the Jews had the Age or Aries, following the Hindus with the Age of Taurus, and again the Age of Aries coming to an end with the Age of Pisces, the reign of Christianity will cease with the Age of Aquarius.  Christians will be shoved to the side just as was Hinduism, Buddhism and Judaism.  There will be some new Semitic (Arabic) or even multi-racial figure to take the place, for the next 2150 years.

 In my opinion, Christianity is one of the better as it tends to convey a loving nature of humanity.  Sort of an evolution of the others.  However, nothing lasts forever.  We've got about another 130 years before the expiration date for Christianity is up.  Watch as it destroyed to make way for the new Savior.
Freemasonry evil and Satanic?  We can definitely say they've been infiltrated.  However, I don't think the average person even knows enough (myself included) about Satanism to fully say Masonry has been absolutely conquered.  It's like anything else.  The control structure has been taken over while the underlings tend to have feelings of being do-gooders.  With luck, Freemasonry will survive the scourge of trash that infiltrated it long ago. But as with any organization, evil aside, they are subject to all the natural evils that men and women will do.  They don't need Satan to help them. R.I.P. Mr. Peale

Michael C said (October 2, 2018):

Wanted to say thanks for the recent Peale articles. Evelyn's I just read, then yours. Her points are scriptural. There is a lot of truth in things Peale
said. I have a copy of his positive thinking book, its been around in some family books for years. A lot of good things in there. The bible says, "as a
man thinks so he is." But a great positive attitude, though good in many ways in life is not the same as a true salvation experience. When the latter
happens, the differences become clear. God always knows a persons heart, but Jesus was clear when he explained from two examples of men, the publican and
the Pharisee. The former who prayed, "God be merciful to me the sinner" went away justified, the positive, self praising Pharisee, who expressed thanks for
all his own good deeds, was not. There is a starting place. The publican got it right.

Evelyn's column is awesome. It reminds me of th Bible Book of Colossians Ch 1 (in part) " ... Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist." NOTE: I use King James Version 1611 which built upon the excellent work of William Tyndale using the Textus Receptus (received letters) in Greek - the name of JESUS is in Greek (and does not translate in Hebrew correctly); the most prevalent languages have been Greek and English).

Chris G said (September 12, 2018):

Great article by Evelyn for exposing another wolf in sheep's clothing but I have a bone to pick @ Chad the Lucifer sympathizer.

There is only One True Eternal God; True Judaism, Islam & Christianity is the same religion with the same prophets but satan divides and rules them with his clever added falsehoods.

With Judaism satan divides and rules with the Talmud which opposes Moses;

With Islam satan divides and rules with the Hadiths(ie - Jew Abdullah Ibn Saba founded Shia) not written by Mohammad whom was illiterate;

With Christianity satan divides and rules with Paul the bludgeoner of Stephen, which on many occasions contradicts Yeshua's message;

Remove the Talmud, Hadiths and Paul, then you are left with One religion. If true Judaism, Islam & Christianity united it would be game over for the enemy.

The most I've learned from spirituality comes from hardcore Satanists that have come to Christ - Yeshua Hamashiach; John Todd, Roger Morneau, Mark Cleminson etc...; They know first hand what losers Satanists are. Morneau was told by the high priest Yeshua is going to take his people to another planet. Satanists are forever delusional and never learn; Atlantis to Nimrod to Rothschild - throughout history every time Satan gets the empire he wants the finger of The True Eternal God knocks it down like a house of cards; Yet this Chad boasts about a "new savior" and neglects to mention what will happen to this loser in the book of Revelations.

Revelation 20:10 "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever."

Dane said (September 11, 2018):

his is a note to chad. he is totally mistaken about Christianity. first of all it is not religion; it is God's one & only gift to mankind. it has nothing to do with worldly religion. it is a whole different agenda. just read the words of Jesus. it is the only scene where the Word of God actually died for us. religion can't touch that. also, nothing is going to phase out true believers in Jesus. the new world order may try, but us true followers will stand to the end. we see the satanic agenda that is through masonry that you write about,henry. we are the few that are awake. it is mystery Babylon. Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said: I am the way, the truth, & the life; no one comes to the Father but by me.

Abdrew said (September 11, 2018):

Well, he’s long gone now and suffering in hell. Which is his own doing. At the moment of our death Jesus Christ will reveal Himself to us confirming indeed that He is Lord God and given all Authority by the Father.

As an ethnic Roman Catholic my temporary destiny will be purgatory. There, my Love for Jesus Christ and all the Angels and Saints will become unbelievably strong. So strong that my past life will be naturally blotted out and I will be purified having no memory of it nor even the concupiscence to sin against my Lord King and Savior all the days of my life.

Trump was brought up in Norman Vincent Peale,s church.

Al Thompson said (September 10, 2018):

'm glad Evelyn called you out on this one. However, you said the following:

"touched on a universal truth, that we
create our reality by virtue of our thoughts."
We never create our own reality by thinking about something. Reality is what it is regardless of what we think about it. Perception is not always a reality unless it reflects the facts or the truth. Our thoughts are nothing more than our mind and spirit doing the functions that God intended. The positive thinking idea is a failure.
However, having confidence in one's ability and then getting the job done carries more weight, especially when they get good results.

Peale is like that guy at the Crystal Cathedral years ago and they completely trashed the Christians that listened to them. I'm thinking this is another way to make the people complacent while the communists and Jews run society into the ground. These guys were also Zionists.
