The Papacy, Protestant America, and secret societies
When America was rising into a new Protestant republic due to the American Revolution, and the Holy Roman Papacy was meeting its demise through the French Revolution, Satan moved the Papacy into high gear to, at the least, minimize the damage to his prize institution for the exaltation of human merit, and for Christianizing spiritualism, the deepest art of exalting human merit.
The wise general that he is, bending all his foresight to accomplish the final captivity of the whole world under his spell before Christ would return, Satan made use of a practice he had begun centuries before Protestantism was born in the Reformation.
Secret societies were his inspiration from antiquity. They have ever been his strong hold in this world. The earliest recorded secret group was the Babylonian Chaldeans, through whom the “curious arts” were kept hidden from all the uninitiated and only for the select few who were willing to devote themselves to the devils, and sell their soul to the spirits.
Their labor in that which God had forbidden them, “understanding dark sentences,” left them without peace, and turned them into destructive men and women “of fierce countenance,” “a bitter and hasty nation” “whose look was more stout than [their] fellows.” (Dan. 8:23;Hab. 1:6;Dan. 7:20). Appearing to serve God they, in reality, were destroying God’s influence on the uneducated nations. Under their shepherding, they would “destroy wonderfully [mysteriously], and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft [deceit, treachery] to prosper in his hand.” (Dan. 8:24,25).
When Christ destroyed the works of the devil on Calvary, the place of the skull, He crushed the head of the serpent. Not to be undone, Satan gathered his forces and immediately began to alter the new apostolic movement. Gnosticism, a secretive sect of Christianity, Judaism, and Greek philosophy mixed, sprung up and proliferated “secret knowledge”. Soon the religion of Christ was riddled with Gnostic falsehoods which came under the guise of Christianity. With the use of Christian language Satan created his delusion through many and varied invented epistles perpetrating the lost writings of the original apostles. Persian Mithraism was brought in, as well as Egyptian asceticism. Christianity became a mixing bowl of all major pagan religions, and successfully united Constantine’s failing Roman Empire.
Christians had not remained vigilant, as Christ and his leaders had admonished, and they didn’t recognize the counterfeiting of the truth. Duped, the blind Christian community followed the leading of its presbytery, which was being seduced by pagan error. Now the Catholic Church was born out of all the world religions spawned from the original Chaldean secretive cult. Not finished with “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,” Satan continued to birth more secret societies from her loins, until now the church was his new host, and could, hold the title, “THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” (Rev. 17:5).
Throughout the centuries since the council of Nicaea and the establishment of Catholicism, many secret societies have arisen to strengthen the Church’s foundation, i.e. to firm up Satan’s end goal of complete control over the minds and hearts of humanity.

Other conspiracy theorists call out organizations that are embedded in the United States and world governments: IMF, FEMA, CFR, etc.; and financial groups: Bechtel, Bilderburgs, Carlyle Group, etc.
I believe that every presidency of the United States of America has been worked on by the Church, behind the scenes, to restore the Roman Papacy, even unwittingly. George Washington, whose honest soul was perhaps disenchanted with the pharisaical condition of the Protestantism of his day, followed an apparently benign Christian-looking Freemasonry as his method for religious worship, and so did the other non-denominational presidents. The mainline Protestant presidents were approached with other methods outside of religion.
Yet, one hook remained with them all. Sunday sacredness, that spurious day of worship, was the creation of the Church of Rome. Easter and Christmas, also were her darlings. These ancient pagan holy days would always present a snare to our country.
Nevertheless, Protestantism and Republicanism were our nation’s leaders barrier of safety from the sly movements of the Papacy to quietly recapture America and its only hedge of protection—Bible study, and the self-government it promoted.
But when those presidents would not go so far with the intentions of the secret Catholic societies as to sabotage their own Protestant republic which they loved, those presidents were either assassinated, or the attempt was made on their life, by covert members of the Papacy posing as servants and protectors of our presidents.
Such has been the case increasingly so following the American Civil War. Although some people are beginning to believe that our latest presidents, since 1929, have been prepared by the Vatican and have been doing its will to bring down the one nation blessed by the God of the Bible.
