Get El otro Imperio cristiano PDF

Existió, antiguamente, una alianza entre masones templarios y benedictinos que tenía un objetivo: un Imperio cristiano alrededor de Jerusalén.

La Revolución Francesa supone un punto de inflexión en los angeles historia de Europa, en todos los órdenes, en lo que a los angeles masonería se refiere, los angeles Revolución y los angeles Ilustración posterior corroboran los angeles victoria de l. a. facción agnóstica y republicana de los angeles masonería, que ya se había apuntado con los angeles creación de l. a. Gran Logia de Masones Libres y Aceptados de Inglaterra en 1717. Esta victoria hace olvidar que, originalmente, hubo una corriente masónica religiosa y monárquica, es más hubo una corriente masónica relacionada muy estrechamente con los angeles Orden Benedictina, los Caballeros Templarios y Las Cruzadas. El otro Imperio cristiano pretende, desde el escrupuloso rigor histórico, mostrar esa relación, no muy estudiada en los libros sobre masonería, entre masones, templarios y benedictinos, y demostrar que Las Cruzadas nacen de un plan de l. a. Orden de San Benito de Cluny para establecer un Nuevo Orden mundial, para lo que crearon una orden militar y demandaron los angeles ayuda masónica para edificar el nuevo imperio.

Hace hincapié Eduardo R. Callaey en las múltiples pruebas que existen de las relaciones entre templarios, masones y benedictinos y muestra cómo, pese a ser patentes, estas relaciones se han obviado o silenciado a lo largo de los angeles historia. Los benedictinos se asocian con los caballeros en los angeles reconquista de Toledo, pero serán los de Cluny los que crearán el concepto de milites, órdenes de caballería asociadas a los monasterios, de ahí nacen los templarios, de hecho es un benedictino el que redacta los angeles Regla de los Templarios. También los benedictinos organizarán las distintas logias masónicas de l. a. época y legarán, tanto a masones como a templarios, los angeles simbología del Templo de Salomón, que une a las tres órdenes. l. a. masonería fue una organización cristiana hasta el S. XVIII, Las Cruzadas fueron alentadas por dos papas – Urbano II y Gregorio VII – salidos de Cluny, cuando terminaron Las Cruzadas, muchos templarios se refugiarán en Escocia donde seguirán conectados con los masones escoceses en los que subsisten las rules benedictinas, los francmasones de Francia, apoyarán en todo momento a los escoceses. En el S. XVIII, cuando los angeles Reforma amenaza l. a. cristiandad surgen de nuevo benedictinos, masones y templarios para crear un Imperio cristiano transnacional, pero los angeles condena del Vaticano, el temor de los reyes y los angeles Revolución Francesa sumergen en el olvido los angeles conexión entre l. a. masonería y el cristianismo.

Razones para comprar los angeles obra:

• El tema de los masones y los templarios interesa al público como muestran l. a. cantidad de éxitos literarios que tratan sobre el tema.
• Aclara el origen del credo masónico y explica los angeles tendencia religiosa y monárquica que tras los angeles Revolución Francesa se olvida ya que los angeles tendencia beneficiada de esta es los angeles agnóstica-republicana.
• los angeles línea de investigación es novedosa porque une a los masones con los templarios y a ambos, en un triángulo inédito, con l. a. Orden de San Benito: los benedictinos.
• El autor, por su condición de masón, periodista e historiador, es experto en l. a. francmasonería, el simbolismo y l. a. historia de las religiones.

Unidos por el Templo de Salomón, benedictinos, masones y templarios, planearon l. a. conquista de Jerusalén y los angeles construcción de un nuevo Imperio cristiano cuyo centro fuera Jerusalén y no Roma, un Imperio transnacional conquistado a golpe de espada por los templarios y levantado, piedra a piedra, por los masones.

Oscar R o m e r o (Archbishop o f San Salvador who was brutally assassinated in 1 9 8 0 ) tolled like a bell, loud enough to awaken the most indifferent to such events. Surrender to death - unsought but serenely accepted - has been a sign o f many from within the Christian community in Latin America. Spirituality, the way of being Christian that has emerged in Latin America, carries with it now the mark o f martyrdom. It is not an attitude o f complacency towards that which causes it, something which we have no alternative but to reject, but - painful as it is - it is also an enrichment o f the life of the Christian community.

Jesus assumes the sins o f humanity in this way, both out o f love for the sinner and in rejection o f sin. 1 Such an approach presupposes a particular analysis of poverty and its causes. It also implies a biblical foundation both in relation to a rejection of this inhuman situation as well as towards an understanding of spiritual poverty. Finally it sets out the reasons - leaving aside all idealism - for Christian commitment in this field. This contribution was taken up a year later at Medellin in August and September 1 9 6 8 , and helped clarify the commitment which many Christians had begun to assume.

Muslims in the southern Philippines are fighting against a state dominated by a Christian majority. Christians in north-east India are fighting against the Indian state. M a n y of these armed ethnic struggles aiming at a separate state turn exclusive, create new minorities and evolve into internecine conflicts. Similarly the Dalits find it difficult to unite. One of the factors which divides them is religion, as some have converted to Buddhism, others to Christianity or Islam, whereas again others remain within the setting of Hindu traditions.
