The Illuminati


Peace and Grace to you in Christ Jesus. I was recently shown a website called YouTube that had a thing about all of the secret symbols that are in our everyday life. The site showed symbols of pyramids, owls, diamonds, shields, and torches. These symbols are involved in just about every part of our life from the dollar bill to the White House to logos for many big businesses. I was told of a secret order of people called the Illuminati. I was wondering, do you know much of these things and how true it is that they are behind or could be behind many of the goings on in the world today? Thank you for your efforts.


There is a theory, called the Conspiracy Theory, that a very powerful secret society controls much of what happens in the world today and is moving us toward their goal of a one world government. This group is called the Illuminati by some and is said to be an outgrowth of European Free Masonry where many of the signs and symbols you mention originate. Some advocates of this theory claim the Illuminati were behind both the French and Russian Revolutions. While some believe they were effectively disbanded in the 18th Century, others swear their influence is still felt in the world today, working through groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Tri-Lateral Commission, and the Bilderbergers.
