1. On The Masons And Their Lies: What Every Christian Needs To Know (Spiritual Warfare)
Author: by Michael W Witcoff
In this second edition of “On The Masons And Their Lies,” ex-Mason Michael Witcoff breaks down Masonic philosophy line-by-line and point-by-point. Drawing from Albert Pike’s “Morals And Dogma” and the thoughts of other 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Masons, Witcoff compares Masonic Ideology, Theology, Christology, Soteriology, sacraments and more to what is found and transmitted through the ages by the Holy Orthodox Church of Jesus Christ.
Beginning with the story of his joining Freemasonry – and how the Holy Spirit eventually guided him out of it – Witcoff details the “4 Satanic Deceptions” which Masonic philosophy uses to draw the mind, heart, and soul of man away from the light of Jesus Christ.
If you are a Mason concerned with the state of your soul and your place in the Kingdom Of God, then it is the author’s sincerest hope and prayer that this book reveals God’s truth and helps you untangle the web of Masonic deceit.
It is written as a resource for priests, pastors, Christians and Masons who seek a fuller understanding of what each system teaches – and whether the two are truly compatible. By the time you’re done reading this book, you’ll know far more about Freemasonry than most of its own members do…

From William the Conqueror’s arrival in 1066 to the end of the twentieth century, The Story of Britain celebrates the rich diversity of a people and culture, as well as the events, good and bad, that have shaped Britain and the world over the past thousand years.
Royals, commoners, warriors, and scientists have all had parts to play, and each of their stories is told here in lively, lucid language appropriate for a young audience. Timelines summarize each era in a quick-view format between each section, while bite-size chapters and full-color plates make this history easy to pick up and hard to put down.
