The title of this article should give you some idea of where we are headed. As we look at the Illuminati and its continuing influence, even down to today, we have to note that much of their effort was (and is) directed at reaching the next generation or two and, through them, continuing to reach into the future. As evil as they were, they had a multi-generational approach to keeping their worldview, their religious faith as it were, alive and well. More Christians should take a multi-generational approach to making sure their children and grandchildren learn the truth. However, the Illuminist conspirators have taken great pains to make sure this does not happen by the way their minions have worked at neutralizing most churches with erroneous information and just plain bad doctrine. So the church ends up being neutered and what should be opposition to Illuminist efforts withers on the vine.
In his book A Theological Interpretation of American History C. Gregg Singer, once on the faculty of Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where he served as Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, has noted: “After 1830 there was a growing philosophical and theological cleavage between the North and the South. While the North was becoming increasingly subject to radical influences, the South was becoming increasingly conservative in its outlook.” He observed that Old School Presbyterianism had begun to take a strong stand against the abolitionist position, “…not because it was opposed to slavery per se, but because of the philosophy and theology which it represented, and because they clearly saw that if this radicalism were to gain the supremacy in the national government, then there must certainly come in its wake a radical political and social program which would threaten the established order and constitutional government for the nation as a whole.” He took note of Rev. John Henley Thornwell’s commentary on this where Thornwell said: “The parties in this conflict are not merely abolitionists and slave-holders–they are atheists, socialists, communists, red republicans, Jacobins on the one side and the friends of order and regulated freedom on the other.In one word, the world is the battleground–Christianity and atheism the combatants, and the progress of humanity is at stake.” Thornwell wrote this in 1850. The War of Northern Aggression was a decade away yet, but with amazing prescience, he saw what was coming and he recognized many of the adversaries. Rev. Benjamin Morgan Palmer called the abolitionist mindset “undeniably atheistic” and he connected it with the French Revolution. These godly men saw the problem and recognized some of those involved, but did they grasp the fact that there was a guiding hand in back of the Jacobins, socialists, atheists and the rest that moved them all to do what they were doing in concert? Whether they did or not, it’s a question we ought to consider, for it is still applicable in our day when we look at some of the groups and individuals that perform radical acts on the contemporary scene.
We can all look at the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, the Southern Poverty Law Center and even the Ku Klux Klan in our day and ask the question–where does the money and direction come from for these groups to do what they do, and who behind the scenes that we never hear about gives them their marching orders? Because no matter how you try to cut the mustard, what most of these groups do is not spontaneous. I watched so-called “anti-war” groups in action on two college campuses right after the Kent State shootings back in the early 1970s, when you had some of the most well-organized “spontaneous” demonstrations you ever saw, complete with propaganda printed in North Viet Nam for protesting American students to carry and hand out. And this stuff came to at least one of these schools by the box load because I brought a box full of it home at the time and went through it. So please don’t talk to me about “spontaneous.” I’ve been there–and “spontaneous” it ain’t!
It was no different after the War of Northern Aggression. Arthur Thompson has noted in his authoritative book To The Victor Go The Myths And Monuments that: “The practice of sending the worst sort of political radicals and members of secret societies as our representatives continued after the Civil War. These men represented the U.S. government, but not necessarily the American people.The Marxist Louis Blenker was appointed our man in Nantes, France. Alexander Asboth, who had served with Kossuth in 1848, was our man in Argentina and Uruguay…After serving as secretary of war and then attorney general under Grant, co-founder of the Order (of Skull and Bones) Alphonso Taft was appointed U.S. minister to Austria and then Russia…(Carl) Schurz, after supporting a movement to annex Canada to the United States, became active in the anti-imperialism movement.” Makes you wonder if Schurz was an early advocate of the present-day North American Union movement. Three of the four men mentioned here were Forty-eighters that Donnie Kennedy and I dealt with in our book Lincoln’s Marxists. Only Alphonso Taft wasn’t–and he was co-founder of the Skull and Bones society which is still alive and flourishing today. Look up Skull and Bones on the Internet. You should find some interesting reading.
If you are able to get Mr. Thompson’s book, and I hope that many will, you will find an amazing list of people belonging to abolitionist, Spiritualist, socialist and Feminist groups mentioned and there are interlocking memberships and directorates in all these groups so that when you learn what to look for you can begin to see a pattern here of a small but influential clique of people belonging to different groups, which often seem at odds with each other, but are really not. You start to see the same names over and over again in the different groups and you cannot help but come away with the distinct impression that you really have one fairly small clique exerting tremendous influence over many groups, and therefore many people. Such cannot be accidental or coincidental.
And this continued on into the twentieth century (and beyond). Mr. Thompson mentioned prohibition and the Prohibition Party, one of the founders of which was Alvan Bovay, one of the founders of the radical Republican Party. He also noted, in passing, the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, “which was run by the lesbian Frances Willard.” Folks, I swear, you can’t make this stuff up! In closing out this particular chapter, which majored on Leftist infiltration, Thompson noted: “A unit organized under the American Red Cross later served as a cover for American involvement in helping to solidify Lenin’s Bolshevik government in Russia.” I bet your history books forgot to include that one.

Don’t think that the Illuminati is dead just because you don’t see the name floating around anymore. Rather, look at the myriad of other organizations out there today, no matter what their names, that promote anti-Christianity, One World Government, socialism, and all those agendas dear to the heart of any Illuminist.
