Our Spiritual Heritage and the Egyptian Obelisk

Uh, what does Christian heritage have to do with an Egyptian obelisk? I found this ad on a Christian web site and thought it quite ironic. And it just goes to show how "in the dark" most Christians really are about these pagan symbols.

Excerpt from Cutting Edge Ministries:

All pagans love to worship the creature rather than the Creator [Romans 1:25]; therefore, every single pagan group in the world worships the Sex Act. Both Satanism and Freemasonry absolutely love the Obelisk. The Egyptians created the obelisk, believing that the spirit of the Sun god, Ra, dwelt in there. [H.L. Hayward, Symbolic Masonry: An Interpretation of the Three Degrees, Washington, D.C., Masonic Service Association of the United States, 1923, p. 207; 'Two Pillars' Short Talk Bulletin, Sept., 1935, Vol. 13, No 9; Charles Clyde Hunt, Some Thoughts On Masonic Symbolism, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company, 1930, p. 101]
Satanists -- and Invisible Masons -- also depict the obelisk as the erect male organ. One Luciferian author writes that "... the lingam [male phallus] was an upright pillar" [W. Wynn Wescott, Numbers: Their Occult Power and Mystic Virtues, Theosophical Publishing Society, 1902, p. 33] A Masonic author both admit that these pillars of the obelisk were used to represent sex [Haywood, quoted above, p. 206-7 and Rollin C. Blackmer, The Lodge and the Craft: A Practical Explanation of the Work of Freemasonry, St. Louis, The Standard Masonic Publishing Co., 1923, p. 94]
In the Bible, we see the obelisk in use in Baal worship, the priests killed on God's orders, and the obelisks destroyed. Listen to the account i which God destroyed these obelisks: ""… King Jehu said to the guards and to the officers, 'Go in and slay them; let none escape'. And they smote them with the sword; and the guards before the king threw their bodies out, and went into the inner dwelling of the house of Baal. They brought out the obelisks [pillars] of the house of Baal and burned them." [2 Kings 10:26, Amplified Bible]
The next time you see an obelisk in your Freemasonry organization, you now know you are looking at one of the supreme objects in Baal worship, for which God ultimately destroyed Israel. You are also tolerating a Satanic symbol of the sex act.

I don't downplay the role Christianity has had in the structure of our nation, (I'm a Christian myself) but I do want to try and get people to "think outside the box" for a moment, specifically Christians. Jesus said that His kingdom is a spiritual kingdom, not an earthly kingdom. America is merely an earthly kingdom, and as such is subject to the wiles and influence of the "god of this world"(2 Corinthians 4:4), as is any other kingdom of this world. Sometimes I think we Christians erroneously tend to equate America with Jesus and Jesus with America, and that's just not Biblically accurate.
