Matin Luther's Rosicrucian Seal
The Rosicrucian fraternity was a philosophical secret society which inspired Masonic rites, said to have been founded in late medieval Germany by a semi–legendary 15th-century alchemist knight named Christian Rosenkreuz for adepts who wanted to reform the world. The life of Christian Rosencreutz (1378–1484) is recounted in the manifesto Fama Fraternitatis (“Declaration of Brotherhood”), which was printed in Germany in 1614.
Martin Luther’s personal seal appeared on the third Rosicrucian Manifesto, The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz:
“F.R.C. or Frater Rosae Crucis is the title awarded to advanced members of the Rosicrucian Order. This title is awarded specifically to advanced members of the AMORC or Ancient Mystical Order Rosæ Crucis. Through years of study the Rosicrucian who has progressed to this level is understood to be at the master level of understanding the teachings presented by this organization. For this reason, only those who have been formally initiated into the 10th Degree of the order are allowed to attach F.R.C. to their name.” (Wikipedia retrieved on April 24, 2015)
Today's Rosicrucian Society is a daughter of the Rosicrucian fraternity founded in late medieval Germany for adepts who wanted to reform the world.
"The Societas Rosicruciana
(or Rosicrucian Society
) is a Rosicrucian order which limits its membership to Christian Master Masons
. The order was founded in Scotland, but now exists in England, Scotland, Canada, France, Portugal, Romania, Ireland and the United States. While a prospective member must be a Trinitarian Christian Master Mason
in good standing with a Grand Lodge
that is recognized by the Grand Lodge of the jurisdiction in which the Society meets, the various Societies have no other Masonic links, ties, or official recognition. Additionally, in a few jurisdictions membership is by invitation only. As the Society offers assistance to all its members in working out the great problems of nature and science, it functions in some respects as a research society." (Wikipedia

☜ This 18th–century edition of a text by Hermes Trimegistus was intended for Rosicrucian audiences. This symbol combines the alchemical double ouroboros with the Masonic square and compass, the 'as above, so below' triangles, and with the Rosicrucian rose in the center.

Here is a disturbing list of the words and deeds of Martin Luther:
- Luther has a low view of the books of Esther, Hebrews, James, Jude, and Revelation. In his 1522 Preface to the New Testament, he calls the book of James, an “Epistle of Straw," and the Revelation of John "in no way detect that the Holy Spirit produced it." Luther moved Hebrews and James to join Jude and the Revelation at the end, to differentiate these from the other books which he considered God-inspired. (For full details please click here.)
- Luther calls Moses' Ten Commandments 'stupid' (Wittenb. ad. 5, 1573), while Paul says the law is good and holy and righteous! (Romans 7:12)
- Luther promotes sin (a Christian gnostic belief that the body and spirit are separate, therefore bodily sins have no effect on your salvation!). Luther says: "Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong, but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world. We will commit sins while we are here, for this life is not a place where justice resides... No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day." (Let Your Sins Be Strong, from 'The Wittenberg Project;' 'The Wartburg Segment', translated by Erika Flores, from Dr. Martin Luther's Saemmtliche Schriften, Letter No. 99, 1 Aug. 1521)... But the Word of God says "sin is lawlessness." (1 John 3:4) And Jesus never knew the workers of lawlessness! (Matthew 7:23, 13:41-42) Luther had NEVER understood that Christians are UNDER CHRIST'S LAW! 1 Corinthians 9:21
- Luther insists on the Real Presence of the body and blood of Christ in the consecrated bread and wine, which he called the sacramental union (Weimar Ausgabe 26, 442; Luther's Works 37, 299–300).
- Luther calls for the killing of the Jews in his On the Jews and Their Lies. Every anti-Jewish book printed in the Third Reich contained references to and quotations from Luther.
- Luther says "the Baptism of infants is pleasing to Christ," and through the parents' faith, the infant obtains his own faith which is able to save him. (The Large Catechism by Martin Luther)
- Luther believes Mary was a perpetual virgin and the Theotokos or Mother of God. (Luther's Works, 21:326, cf. 21:346; Bäumer, 190; Luther's Works, 22:23)
- Luther declares Mary without sinful flesh and body (Sermons of Martin Luther, 291). Throughout his lifetime, Luther refers to Mary as the "Queen of Heaven." (Luther's Works 7:573)
- In his Smalcald Articles, Luther describes the saints as currently residing "in their graves and in heaven." (It shocks me that Luther's heaven has billions of graves.)
- Martin Luther felt haunted by the devil and by evil ghosts and demons. In Winter 1521/1522 , when he stayed as Knight George on the Wartburg, under protection of the Elector, and translated the Bible into German, his fears of such attacks became even worse in the loneliness of the dark walls; hearing a scratching and chafing, he valiantly grasped the ink pot and threw it right at the devil's grimacing face, in order to chase away the perpetrator, who had disturbed his task of translating the Holy Scripture into German. (https://stevehickey.wordpress.com/2009/07/22/luthers-inkwell-spiritual-warfare-on-wait-mountain/)
- Luther held the devil himself responsible for his doubts, sadness and depression, which overcame him time and again. Whether there was a noise outside, a sack with nuts rustled or a black dog appeared in his room - he believed that the devil was present... (http://www.luther2017.de/en/1561/throwing-ink-pot)
- Lutherans do not believe in any sort of earthly millennial kingdom of Christ either before or after His second coming on the last day. (Augsburg Confession, Article 17, Of Christ's Return to Judgment.)
Martin Luther's dragon mouth calls Jesus Christ an adulterer:
No. 1472: Christ Reproached as Adulterer Between April 7 and May 1, 1532[Martin Luther said,] “Christ was an adulterer for the first time with the woman at the well, for it was said, ‘Nobody knows what he’s doing with her.’ Again with Magdalene, and still again with the adulterous woman whom he let off so easily. So the good Christ had to become an adulterer before he died.”

- Luther was not the first, but by far the greatest translator of the German Bible, and is as inseparably connected with it as Jerome is with the Latin Vulgate. He threw the older translation into the shade and out of use, and has not been surpassed or even equaled by a successor. There are more accurate versions for scholars (as those of De Wette and Weizsäcker), but none that can rival Luther's for popular authority and use. (http://www.bible-researcher.com/luther02.html)
- Luther's Masonic Rosicrucian errors in Bible were carried forward to Tyndale's translation, the Geneva Bible, and King James Bible.
Martin Luther is revered by Christians as Albert Pike by Freemasons:
Wartburg has a long history of occult abominations:
- Christian Rosenkreuz (1378–1484), founder of the Rosicrucian cult, was born in this house.
- Martin Luther (1483 - 1546), a Rosicrucian, the principal figure of the German Reformation, translated the New Testament of the Bible into German, and threw his ink pot at Satan in this house.
- Francis Bacon, (1561-1626) (New Atlantis) a Rosicrucian who inserted many Masonic symbols in KJV 1611 before it was first printed.
- Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750), a Rosicrucian occult musician, whose son Johann Christian Bach was also a Masonic composer (Source: Masonic Music . org, July 6, 2015).
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a German Freemason (Source: Masonic Dictionary, July 6, 2015), writer and statesman who translated the Bible into German (five weeks in the year 1777)
- Bill Clinton, Freemason and child rapist, 42nd president of the United States of America, visited the Wartburg castle (as well as the Bach House) on May 14, 1998 during his state visit to Germany. He gave a Masonic chant in this haunted house: "On this beautiful Thuringian day in the spring, we are bathed in the light and the warmth of freedom."
Adolf Hitler was a big fan of the Wartburg, declaring it "the most German of German castles."
