"Above all else brethren, Swear Not"
Secret Society Initiations are Luciferian;
the first was called the Tower of Babel; (Gate of El, Saturn, Molech, etc) Babylon means Gate of Osiris or On "Heliopolis". The last is called ISIS "Black Virgin" or "Throne" of the Alternative Messiah. "Black Knight" is a Sworn servant of the Black Virgin "ISIS" eg Knights of the Black Sun or Nazi SS. Science is "Vain and profane babblings in opposition to God" 1 Tim 6:12 eg "Black Matter", "Black Holes" "Dark Energy". CIA "Black Ops" or "Black Budgets" another example.
Confederate means "Against the Covenants with God"; Sin voids those Covenants; Freedom from God is the goal.
ISIS is also called DAESH "Nation of Islam in Levant". It's based on the First Born Sons: Cain, Japheth, Canaan, Elam (Persia), Joktan (Arabs), Haran, Lot, Ishmael, Esau. Esau is prophesied to obtain "Dominion" (Gen 27:39-41 AB) and his written intent is to slay his brother Jacob. Brazen eh? The 3rd Beast Kingdom of Esau is Brass.
Anonymous (Anonymus) are Secret Societies whose Initiates are relieved of Care; the first Sumerian Ritual "Begone, Dull Care" is today's Bohemian Grove Ritual; Care is placed at the feet of Molech. Freedom, Liberty, Equality are buzzwords used by Anonymus aka "Il Separatio" meaning Separated or Holy. Anonymus means "Personification of perfect neutrality" symbolized by Pontius Pilate washing his hands at the Crucifixion, the Masonic "White Gloves", the Anonymous Mask (Guy Fawkes was the Jesuit Scapegoat for the Gunpowder Plot of 5 Nov 1605 to prevent publication of the 1611 Authorized Bible; Thomas Percy (Pierce as in Barbara "Babalon" Pierce/Bush) was the real ring leader or Black wrapped face of ISIS' "Jihadi John".
The intent of Anonymous Secret Oaths (Jesuit, Masonic, Sufi etc) is to become outside the system, Free of Laws, Customs, Tax, Money worries or Cares of the World; Secret Societies provide the tools (Weapons, Opportunity etc) for others to commit Sin; Blackmail holds them accountable.
Both sides of all Revolutions, Civil Wars and International Wars are financed, armed and instigated by Anonymus; Catholic V Islam; Catholic V Protestant; Democracy V Communism; Zionism V Islam (WWIII) matters not. All wars are planned by 5th Column Traitors outside the system aka "Global Citizens".
"I spake openly to the world: I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing"
Jesus Christ at His trial before the Sadducee High Priest Caiaphas.
"But above all things, brethren swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath"
James 5:12 and Mat 5:34 warn against making any oaths, this is why Secret Societies require them.
The Square and Compass represent man's vain attempt to re-create Heaven (Compass) and Earth (Square).
