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 l. a. historia de Europa, en todos los órdenes, en lo que a l. a. masonería se refiere, l. a. Revolución y los angeles Ilustración posterior corroboran los angeles victoria de los angeles facción agnóstica y republicana de los angeles masonería, que ya se había apuntado con los angeles creación de los angeles 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 los angeles Orden de San Benito de Cluny para establecer un Nuevo Orden mundial, para lo que crearon una orden militar y demandaron l. a. 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 l. a. historia. Los benedictinos se asocian con los caballeros en l. a. 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 l. a. Regla de los Templarios. También los benedictinos organizarán las distintas logias masónicas de los angeles 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 principles benedictinas, los francmasones de Francia, apoyarán en todo momento a los escoceses. En el S. XVIII, cuando l. a. 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 los angeles 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 l. a. tendencia religiosa y monárquica que tras l. a. Revolución Francesa se olvida ya que los angeles tendencia beneficiada de esta es l. a. agnóstica-republicana.
• l. a. línea de investigación es novedosa porque une a los masones con los templarios y a ambos, en un triángulo inédito, con los angeles 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 los angeles 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.

And not only the weakening of its moral-metaphysical assumptions, but, by this transformation, charity will eventually replace truth. After all, are Catholics really supposed to fight, first with the Protestants because they do not accept the t owa r d a n o n r e l i g i o u s c h r i s t i a n i t y 45 Vatican’s authority, then eventually with the Buddhist and the Hindus because they do not believe that God is three persons in one? Are we really expected to believe that when the Pope meets up with the Dalai Lama he worries that the Dalai Lama will end up in hell because he is not Catholic?

That is to say, if there is no objective truth given to someone once and for all, a truth around which we must all (for good or bad, willingly or unwillingly) gather, then truth happens in dialogue. The truth Christ came to teach the church is not an already accomplished truth. Its message grows with history. Similarly, you cannot read Plato without taking into consideration the whole history of interpretation of Plato. What seems natural is in fact historical. 9 Here is where Nietzsche’s hermeneutics of suspicion is helpful: if there is anything that appears to you to be absolutely self-evident, you must distrust it.

Some have said that in recent years Gadamer had developed some sort of religious hermeneutical attitude. This was seen in his frequent dialogues on religion and between religious traditions. In addition, he spoke increasingly about goodness. This religious turn in his philosophy was fundamentally a result of his hermeneutics. That is to say, if there is no objective truth given to someone once and for all, a truth around which we must all (for good or bad, willingly or unwillingly) gather, then truth happens in dialogue.
