Gospel group Mary Mary caught some flak for tweeting that they were at a Beyonce concert. Here's the deal, Beyonce when she first started out with Destiny's Child was all about Jesus as her Lord and Saviour, and ever since she's been married to Jay-Z there's been no more talk of Jesus nor does she thank Jesus at award shows.
The little twist to all this and probably the main reason why gospel fans were/are heated with Mary Mary is because Beyonce has been seen wear clothing and jewelry with Baphomet/the Goat of Mendes on it. If you aren't familiar with either of those click here.
So what's the big deal? Baphomet/the Goat of Mendes are pagan gods. They are the gods worshipped in Freemasonry, and can also be found in satanism which in in direct conflict with what Christians believe.
"Masonic writer Manly P. Hall (33o)-just recently deceased (9/90) and eulogized and lionized at great length in the SCOTTISH RITE JOURNAL-stated that Baphomet was another name for the satanic "Goat of Mendez" whose picture is featured prominently in the tract. The Goat of Mendez is, of course, the god of the witches. (Mendez is another spelling of Mendes, a city of ancient Egypt where fertility worship-Ba'al worship-was practiced).
This god, also known as the Horned God, is evidently the oldest fertility god in
human history. His representation is found on paintings from cavemen in Ariége, France. Nimrod, the founder of Baëal worship, is often represented wearing a horned headdress. The leader of the most powerful occult/Masonic organization in the world (the Ordo Templi Orientis-Order of Eastern Templars), Kenneth Grant, says that Baphomet actually means Bapho-Mitras-son of Mithras. Mithras was the bull-god (Bull = Ba'al?) worshipped in the Roman empire about the time of Christ. Again, the Horned God of witchcraft.
Thus, while Ba'al was not actually called "Baphomet" until well after the time of Christ; even Masons admit readily that Baphomet is a pagan fertility god-and more importantly, that Freemasonry is a fertility cult religion. Supreme Masonic leader of the Scottish Rite in the 19th century Albert Pike also clearly equates Freemasonry with "occult science" and Templary.
This certainly ought to be enough to convince any sane Christian that Masonry is of the devil!"
