HOW TO DENOUNCE
Denouncing yourself from an oath-based/secret society/fraternal order is a three-part process:
(1) Denounce before God in the name of Jesus Christ with all sincerity and humility in prayer
(2) Formally write a letter of resignation/denounciation to the headquarter offices of your organization
(3) Remove ALL paraphanelia/regalia/videos/pictures from your home and discard these preferably by burning; if you just trash them, please do not give them away - you are essentially recycling.
These steps are necessary in the process of fully divorcing yourself from the organization.
There are several reasons to denounce secret societies, fraternities, sororities, or secret oath-based organizations especially if you are a Christian/Child of God/Joint Heir to Jesus Christ/Born Again/Saved & Filled with the Holy Ghost. This is not to exclude anyone else; this is for you as well, and HOSEA 4:6 says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge."
God has geared my ministry mainly towards the Saints in the House who lack an understanding of what this is all about. But the information on this site IS FOR EVEYONE. Take a look at my seven (7) reasons to denounce:
(1) The organizations are the offspring of Freemasonry
"... founders of the nine Black Greek Fraternities and Soroties were Freemasons and Eastern Stars...Alpha Phi Alphas first iniation was held in a Masonic lodge....
Moreover, many of our collegiate fraternities can trace their ritual to a common Masonic origin. ..."
"on this natural affinity, this historical relationship, between Freemasonry and the collegiate fraternity. ...
"...Thus, the tenets of Freemasonry, thinly veiled, found their way into the initiation ritual of Sigma Nu and remain essentially unchanged today. Both Alpha Tau Omega and Sigma Chi also have Masonic roots as do many other fraternities. Consequently, in a sense, initiates of college fraternities are already 'friends and brothers.'” (Gremillion, p. 167 - see book listing below)
Matthew 7:18-20 says, 18) A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19) Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20) Therefore by their fruits you will know them. (NKJV)
(2) The organizations unknowingly or knowingly practice witchcraft (during the initiation or re-dedication ceremonies)
Mostly everyone's ceremony involves a dark room lit by candles, chanting and repeating words (i.e. your pledge or oath), circling tables or being repositioned several times (i.e. in a square or cross), kneeling at an alter (not like the one at your church!), and some other creative ways the org members can think of to enhance the room. I will provide photo examples soon.
(3) There is nothing in the Bible anywhere that supports these organizations, but the Bible, however, shows that these organizations are in direct opposition to the Word of God
You must pledge or swear an oath to the organization in order to complete membership in-take procedures otherwise you are in the eternal pledge club.
Leviticus 5:1,4-5 says, 1 ‘If a person sins in hearing the utterance of an oath, and is a witness, whether he has seen or known of the matter—if he does not tell it, he bears guilt. 4 ‘Or if a person swears, speaking thoughtlessly with his lips to do evil or to do good, whatever it is that a man may pronounce by an oath, and he is unaware of it—when he realizes it, then he shall be guilty in any of these matters. 5 ‘And it shall be, when he is guilty in any of these matters, that he shall confess that he has sinned in that thing; (NJKV)
Matthew 5:34-37 says, 34 But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one. (NKJV)
(4) Christians are binding yourselves with an oath and/or swearing to avow yourself with unbelievers
Psalms 1:1 says, 1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 Corinthians 6:14-15 says, 14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? (NKJV)
(5) It is a form of idolatry
Sigma Pi Phi represents a Griffin (Sphinx) - god
Alpha Phi Alpha represents Osirus/Ra - god
Alpha Kappa Alpha represents Nefertiti/Qetesh - goddess
Kappa Alpha Psi represents Apollos/Thorth - god
Omega Psi Phi represents Anibus/Genii - god
Delta Sigma Theta respresents Isis/Athena - goddesses
Phi Beta Sigma represents Horus - god
Zeta Phi Beta represents Bastet - goddess
Sigma Gamma Rho represents Maat - goddess
Iota Phi Theta represents Min - god
Exodus 20:3-6 says, 3) “You shall have no other gods before Me 4) “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5) you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6) but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. (NKJV)
Matthew 6:24 says, 24) No man can serve two
Romans 6:16 says, 16) Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness (right doing and right standing with God)? (AmpB)
(6) These organizations claim that you are in darkness until THEY give you light or enlighten you (which is normally info/history on the organization; not the Bible/Word of God)
Proverbs 2:6-7 says, 6 For the Lord gives skillful and godly Wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He hides away sound and godly Wisdom and stores it for the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him); He is a shield to those who walk uprightly and in integrity, (AmpB)
Proverbs 9:10 says, 10 The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning (the chief and choice part) of Wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight and understanding. (AmpB)
James 1:5 says, 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
(7) NONE OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS ARE CHRISTIAN BASED, BUT THE CONTRARY (See number 1). ASK A MEMBER TO GIVE YOU PROOF. Surely there's no secret in giving you proof!
Romans 2:16 says, 16) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
Ephesians 5:11-13 says, 11) And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12) For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13) But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 1 John 1:6 says, 6) If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (NKJV)
1 John 1:6 says, 6) If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (NKJV)
Mark 4:21-23 says, 21) And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick? 22) For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 23) If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
