PRESENT USE OF THE SIX-POINTED STAR
E. PEOPLE / SOCIETYNeither repented they of their...sorceries (Rev. 9:21)"The HEXAGRAM is used in magic, witchcraft, occultism." (Burns: Hidden Secrets of the Eastern Star, pp. 170-71, quoting Stewart Farrar)1. Youth"Generation X"
Halloween"Halloween...emanates from the 14th century... when the Druids would knock on the doors of the castles demanding the young maiden or princess for their sacrifices. If they were not given the maiden, they would paint a HEXAGRAM on the door to tell...that all should die in that household." (Graham, p. 98)
"As darkness set in on October 31st, the clan of Druids would put on their white robes and hoods. They would carry sickles and Celtic crosses as they began a torchlight procession. At the beginning of the procession, a male slave was killed and dragged by a rope fastened to his left ankle. The Druids would walk until they came to a house or a village where they shouted the equivalent of 'trick or treat.' The treat was a slave girl or any female to be given to the Druids. If the people refused to a girl as a 'treat', blood was taken from the dead slave and used to draw a HEXAGRAM or SIX-POINTED STAR on the door or wall of the village. Spirits of the 'horned hunter of the night' were invoked by the Druids to kill someone in that house or village by fear that night." (Meyer: "Halloween and the Forces of Darkness")3. Communicationsa.

Freemasonry"If the two lateral lines of the STAR OF DAVID are removed, leaving the upward and downward pointing arrows...the result is the Freemason's square and compass." (Knight, p. 240) "The BLAZING STAR IS PROPERLY SIX-POINTED... the sign of the deity, and to make that more evident, in the middle of it is usually inscribed the letter 'G', for God... In Co-Masonic lodges, the usual form... is a serpent curled round with its tail in its mouth... This was the original form, but the head of the serpent was altered so as to form the letter G." (Leadbeater, p. 79)"I have seen a painting (in which) the BLAZING STAR in the center existed, but it had 8 points instead of 6 or 5. It was called 'the star of the dawn' or 'MORNING STAR'; and represented HORUS of the resurrection, who was pictured as bearing it upon his HEAD and as having given it to his followers." (Leadbeater, p. 7)b. Hermetic Order of the Golden DawnThe HEXAGRAM is used in occultist Aleister Crowley's "ritual of the BEAST." (Aleister Crowley: Magic Book #4)Israel Regardie reveals that the "HEXAGRAMS OF SATURN" are used in his magical initiation rites. (Regardie, p. 288)Hexagram variations (Regardie, p. 294-95)"This diagram... from the lid of Christian Rosenkreutz' tomb depicts the Higher Self enthroned in the candidate's (initiate's) psyche."(Israel Regardie, Initiation, and Psychotherapy by Cris Monnastre and David Griffin, Gnosis Magazine, Fall 1995, p. 41)[Note: 6-pointed star is located on the RIGHT HAND]
c. Emblem of the Theosophical Society
"THE INTERLACED TRIANGLES, one (lighter) pointing upwards and the other (darker) pointing downwards, symbolise the descent of spirit into matter and its emergence from the confining limits of form. At the same time they suggest the constant conflict between light and dark forces in nature and man. When, as in the emblem, the double triangle is depicted within the circle of the Serpent, the whole of manifested nature is represented, the universe bounded by the limitations of time and space. The symbol of the interlaced triangles is known in the Hebrew religion as the Seal of Solomon or the Star of David."
d. New Age / Wicca
"A growing number of New Agers HAVE ALREADY UNDERGONE AN INITIATION CEREMONY AND ACCEPTED THE MARK. They almost universally report that although they approach the ceremony with dread and foreboding, after it is over... 'I discovered that the LINES ON THE PALM OF MY RIGHT HAND HAD BEEN ALTERED, and a portion of them now FORMED A SIX-POINTED STAR about an inch in circumference. It terrified me when I first spotted it... But as time went on, I learned to accept the changes within my body, and I really felt quite special." (Marrs: Mystery Mark, p. 39)A tattoo on the abdomen of a Wicca initiate:
6. Tattoos/BrandingChakra Piercing"Chakras are the major energy centres within our bodies, called such in the Hindu traditions which have been their main advocates. Body Piercing is an ancient tradition of gnosis which has gained increasing popularity in recent years in various subcultures. One of my aims with performing piercings at these energy centres is to unite these traditions, to open awareness of the chakra energies to the physical/materialist-orientated western mind, and to acknowledge body piercing as an ancient and valid means of gnosis, rather than just a decorative art.
"What is within is brought without. The location of the chakra points is thus demonstrated -although piercings are only basically surface punctures, they do focus the attention on a certain area and thus activate the energies there, as in acupuncture techniques. The physical sensation of pain also releases chemicals in the body which help induce gnosis and trance."

b. Focus on the Family"Why Knighthood is Relevant to Fathers and Sons Today""First, the knight embodied a well-defined set of ideals... and embraced a moral code of honor. They pledged themselves to their lord, their king and their God. Many knights also became... 'Knights of Christ'... When he turned 21, he was eligible for Knighthood. An elaborate INITIATION... marked the completion of the process... I BELIEVE IT IS TIME TO RESURRECT THE CHIVALROUS KNIGHT: his ideals, his process, and HIS CEREMONIES. I WANT HIM TO SPEAK TO A NEW GENERATION... OUR SONS!" (Lewis: Raising a Modern-Day Knight, pp. 7-18) c. The Center for Christ (Newsletter) d. Youth Ministry4. Messianic JewsUth Stuph Resources
