“73% of students participating in social fraternities and sororities have experienced at least one hazing behavior” Allan/Madden(2008) Source
If you are a Christian and thinking about joining a sorority or fraternity please consider the following scriptures:
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of
the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 1 John 2:15-16
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. – James 4:4
You have to really ask yourself: is the spirit behind fraternities and sororities really the Holy Spirit? Does it really draw you closer to the Lord Jesus Christ? The Bible reads to do all things for the glory of God (1 Co. 10:31), does it really bring glory to Him?
Does the following have any resemblance to a Christian life?
The secret rituals where members chant, repeat their chapters creed, and many things that are completely unknown to the outsiders create an elitism attitude for the members. It is hard to provide an actual chant or underground practice from a sorority or fraternity because they are often the thing kept most secret. Unlike hazing where people end up finding out about them. Their chants and rituals are often only done at secret ceremonys [sic] involving candlelight, an attitude of respect for their greek chapter, and most of the time involve past down ceremonial relics that have been passed down in the chapter for generations.
Satan, the one who deceives the whole world, cons people into worshipping him since most people are not stupid enough to worship him knowingly and directly. By paying homage to the false gods behind these Greek organizations, he receives worship.
The Bible is clear, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Ex. 20:3). Yet, behind these organizations are false gods:
Phi Beta Sigma was associated with Athena, in Greek religion and mythology, one of the most important Olympian false gods.
Kappa Alpha Psi is associated with Thoth, which is the name given by the Greeks to the Egyptian god Djeheuty. Thoth was the god of wisdom, inventor of writing, patron of scribes and the divine mediator.
Phi Beta Sigma pays homage to Horus.
Alpha Kappa Alpha is associated with Atlas. In Greek mythology, a Titan (a Nephilim perhaps?).
Alpha Phi Alpha (a fraternity) has the Sphinx as its logo.
Omega Psi Phi is associated with Anubis. Anubis is the Egyptian mythological false god with the head of a jackal.
Zeta Phi Beta is associated with the Egyptian cat-headed goddess, Bastet.
Sigma Gamma Rho refers to Ma’at as its inspiration. She is a goddess who was the female counterpart of Thoth. Its emblem has a skull with swords crossed through it which is normally associated with death.
Iota Phi Theta is associated with the Centaur which in Greek mythology was a race of creatures, part horse and part man.
Delta Sigma Theta is associated with the Roman goddess Minerva. The Greek version of Minerva is called Athena. Celebrations and altars were utilized for this false goddess. The Deltas have this quote: “Question: What is the ultimate goal, then? Answer: Wisdom! The college-educated woman seeks to become wise rather than smart. That is why MINERVA, the Goddess of Wisdom, is our Sorority mentor.” (Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Grand Chapter, Membership Intake Program, 1987, p. 106.).
AKAs are quoted as saying: “…To thee O Alpha Kappa Alpha! We pledge our hearts, our minds our strength. To foster their teachings, obey thy Laws and make thee supreme in service to all mankind” (from pg. 39 of their ritual book).
Some of these groups knell on shrines to a false god. For example, pg. 14 of the ritual book of Kappa Alpha Psi states: “…The Altar of Kappa Alpha Psi, which is the sacred Delphic Shrine, shall be placed in the center of the room and covered with a crimson and crown coverlet.” The Delphic Shrine was used as the shrine of the false god of Apollo (in the Greek polytheistic religion).
The Greek system seemingly mimics the structure of Freemasonry. The following quote is revealing as to the Masonic origins of the Greek system. Quoted from the Candidate Syllabus of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority of 1990 (page 30): “The most direct line of descent from Greek societies to America is the Freemasons (called Masons). Historians of American fraternities and sororities trace most of our rituals, ceremonies, and rites to the Masons. An examination of Masonic rituals open to the scholars suggests that our Founders were also influenced by Masonic ritual, symbolism and initiation experiences.”
It doesn’t take much research to discover the god of Freemasonry is not Jesus Christ but another god, namely lucifer.
The fact demons have been cast out of people who picked up the demons from being involved with sororities or fraternities is pretty telling. The following is an excerpt from the E-Book Demon Mentality Exposed from Rayford Johnson:
The following is an interesting testimony:
God is a jealous God, do you really think giving oaths to an organization where false deities are associated with is pleasing to God? The Bible reads, “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?” (1 Cor. 10:21-22).
All the rituals, hazings, chanting, idolatrous devotion, secrecy, oaths etc. does nothing to draw a person closer to God. Christians are to be separate, holy and peculiar. How else can one be a light to this dark and dying world?
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” – 2 Cor. 6:14-18
If you have been involved with any freemasonry or sorority, and you claim to be a Christian, I would seriously repent and renounce it and even destroy any paraphernalia associated with it.
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
