Many religions have used the image of an "eye" as a religious symbol. The "all-seeing eye" can be traced back to ancient Egypt and the eye of Horus.

The Catholic Church added a "triangle" around this pre-Christian image/symbol and surrounded it with "rays of light" to show that God Is Trinitarian -- that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are Three Divine Persons Who are One Divine Being. The All-Seeing Eye was an explicit image of the Holy Trinity in Christendom.

Supper at Emmaus, Jacopo Pontormo (1525)

"Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon those who fear Him, upon those who count on His mercy (Psalm 33:18)." For centuries, this Catholic symbol was understood to be the "Eye of Providence" -- the "All-Seeing Eye" of God (watching over us).

Aachen Cathedral in Germany, Charlemagne (786)

Freemasonry appropriated the Eye of Providence or All-Seeing Eye to "neutrally" represent god (by whatever name one may believe in). And the use of this symbol as uniquely Masonic first appeared in the publication of Thomas Smith Webb's Freemasons Monitor (1797). To the Freemasons, the All-Seeing Eye represents the Great Architect of the Universe.

Great Architect of the Universe (1797)

Most Freemasons do not really understand the symbols of the Craft; they are "intentionally misled by false interpretations" regarding these. The true meanings of Masonic symbols are "reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry." _ Albert Pike (33rd Degree Mason and Occultist), Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

The "Princes of Masonry" know that the All-Seeing Eye -- the Great Architect of the Universe -- is the Eye of Lucifer, the Morning Star, the Light-bearer. This is the hidden mystery that is revealed to those of the higher degrees.

Freemasons revere Lucifer, the Morning Star, the Light-bearer who brings light, knowledge and intelligence to mankind. Freemasons are deceived to believe that Lucifer is a god. They revere the beautiful archangel Lucifer before his fall. They do not recognize him as "Satan." And no wonder, for even Satan masquerades as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14).

How you have fallen from the heavens, O Morning Star... In your heart you said: "I will scale the heavens... I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High!"
No! Down to Sheol you will be brought to the depths of the pit! (Isaiah 14:12-15)

Lucifer is the light of Freemasonry. Lucifer is the god of the Masonic Temple. Freemasonry is Luciferian illumination. "And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be (Matthew 6:23)."

Today, Evangelical fundamentalists accuse the Catholic Church of paganism -- and much worse. They don’t realize that they are listening to the wrong voice! Although both Catholicism and Freemasonry have used the All-Seeing Eye as a symbol, only the ignorant equate the two.

All who viciously attack the Catholic Church will discover how wrong they have been -- in this life, or the next.

“There are not even 100 people in this country who hate the Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they think the Catholic Church to be.” … “If I were not a Catholic, and were looking for the true Church in the world today, I would look for the one Church which did not get along well with the world; in other words, I would look for the Church which the world hated…” _ Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

The Catholic Church has condemned Freemasonry for centuries. And the Church's position is clear:

"The Church's negative judgment in regard to Masonic association remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion." _ DECLARATION ON MASONIC ASSOCIATIONS, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI), Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (November 26, 1983)

"Eight popes have issued pronouncements condemning Freemasons or those activities and principles identified with Freemasonry: Popes Clement XII, Benedict XIV, Pius VII, Leo XII, Pius VIII, Gregory XVI, Pius IX and Leo XIII have condemned Freemasonry and its principles. Both the 1917 (article 2335) and 1983 (article 1374) Code of Canon Law have imposed the penalties of excommunication and interdict on Catholics who become Freemasons.
One must bear in mind that most newcomers to Freemasonry are for the most part oblivious to the ultimate goal of the society. In his encyclical Humanum Genus Pope Leo XIII stated that the unsuspecting newcomers to the secret society are most likely unaware of their ultimate goals and should not be considered partners in the criminal acts perpetrated by Freemasonry.
Nota bene (Note well): Throughout her visions Blessed Emmerich specifically mentions the "Illuminati" and the "Freemasons" as secret societies most dangerous to the Catholic Church." _ Rev. Joseph L. Iannuzzi, STD, Ph.D.

Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII
On Freemasonry
#2) …At this period, however, the partisans of evil seem to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purpose, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself. They are planning the destruction of holy Church publicly and openly…
#10) …Now, the Masonic sect produces fruits that are pernicious and of the bitterest savor. For, from what We have above most clearly shown, that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view -- namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism.

#4) …The New Age which is dawning will be peopled by perfect, androgynous (hermaphroditic) beings who are totally in command of the cosmic laws of nature. [For example: biotechnology (engineering and manipulating the genetic makeup, the DNA, of organisms) and nanotechnology (engineering and controlling matter at the atomic level)] In this scenario, Christianity (and Christian morality) has to be eliminated and give way to a global religion (a religion of naturalism) and a (totalitarian) New World Order…

The Illuminati is a name given to several groups/organizations which claim to have links to the original Bavarian Illuminati, a secret society founded on May 1, 1776. The Illuminati -- along with Freemasonry and other secret societies -- allegedly conspire to control world affairs, by planning events and placing people in government in order to gain political power to establish a New World Order.

"Conspiracy theory" has acquired a derogatory meaning and is used to discredit inquiry and dismiss or ridicule one's belief in a conspiracy. But conspiracies do exist!

Today there is much talk about the Illuminati. But does the Illuminati exist today in the United States? The answer is YES.

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the Illuminati in the United States.

Some "Current" CFR Members in the United States Include: Joe Biden (47th Vice-President of the United States), Dick Cheney (46th Vice-President of the United States), Hillary Rodham Clinton (67th Secretary of State under Barack Obama), Bill Clinton (42nd President of the United States), George H.W. Bush (41st President of the United States), John Kerry (68th Secretary of State under Barack Obama), Newt Gingrich (58th Speaker of the House of Representatives), John McCain (Senator from Arizona), Dianne Feinstein (Senator from California)... Ruth Bader Ginsburg (United States Supreme Court Justice)... George Soros (currency speculator, investor), Richard Branson (founder of Virgin Group), Rupert Murdoch (founder/chairman/CEO of News Corp and Fox News)... Charles Krauthammer (Fox News commentator and columnist for Washington Post), Heather Nauert (Fox News journalist), Charlie Rose (PBS journalist), Diane Sawyer (ABC News journalist), Lesley Stahl (CBS News journalist)... Angelina Jolie (actress, UN Goodwill Ambassador), George Clooney (actor, United Nations Messenger of Peace)... and Heidi Cruz, wife of presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

This CFR puppet wants to be the 45th President of the United States!

Hillary Clinton said, "We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won't have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future."

Admiral Chester Ward, former Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Navy, was a CFR member for twenty years. He became one of its sharpest critics.

[The goal of the CFR is the] "submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful, one-world government... this lust to surrender the sovereignty and independence of the United States is pervasive throughout most of the membership..." _ Admiral Chester Ward, Kissinger on the Couch, pp. 144-150 (1975)

"Once the ruling members of the CFR have decided that the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities of CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy, and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition." _ Admiral Chester Ward, Kissinger on the Couch, p. 151 (1975)
