Masonic and Occult Symbolism and the Olympic Ceremonies
There’s a conspiracy for everything these days.
The latest, it would seem, is that the 2012 London Olympic opening and closing ceremonies were a PR drive for the freemasons; with the inclusion of various occult symbolism which worked it’s way in on a subliminal level to attack the subconsciousness of the every mind watching, across the world.
Well, I don’t know, maybe that’s true. A quick scan of various blogs and forums across the world seem to show people have done their homework, and have compiled a fairly thorough argument.
Of particular prominence seem to be references to the famous black and white checkered flooring found in freemason lodges across the world, or the Eye of Providence (all-seeing eye of God), sat amid the pyramid with it’s 33 steps of illuminati. The faces of the cycloptic Olympic mascots were kind of weird looking, too.
Some point to the random inclusion of a giant octopus arriving to Rockefeller’s Skank as a signpost to the power of man and mammon overtaking that of God. Whilst others question whether Annie Lennox was playing the part of Lucifer; carrying a boat full of enslaved souls. It would seem that most controversy is directed towards the inclusion of a phoenix rising towards the all seeing eye, from the dying flames of the Olympic torch, framed by a set-square; which is synonymous with Masonic symbolism.
This I do know, the kingdom of darkness is very real and very cunning, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it did creep it’s way into the minds of society in such a prominent way. However, it has nothing on the Kingdom of Light, and as Christians we are called to be on our guard. We must be wise enough to recognise when the demonic is at work, but we must not become fascinated by it. It would be sensible to walk away from that which is evil, but there is no need to run away in fear.
I don’t want to sound like a kill joy; personally I found certain parts of the ceremonies particularly awe inspiring. However, I’m aware that sometimes we need to work hard to protect our minds. When it comes to TV, film, music, or any other cultural time filler, I have a simple rule: “If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t right”
