Newsletter July 2012

Dear Friends, I want to thank those of you who have been sending in gifts of support to the work of Saints this summer.  We have been blessed by your gifts, notes and your prayers.

Some years, summers can be pretty dry in every category. The last few years have been particularly rough for everyone. The economic situation has affected all of us.    Yet, many of you continue to come through, month after month. You are truly partners with us in the fullest sense.

What your support  means is that we also have had the income to continue the expansion of our weekly radio program and it is reaching thousands of new people every week.
When I say that the response has been enormous, I mean that I spend most of my days answering emails from people seeking truth and looking for real answers.  More and more people lost in unbiblical, heretical churches Mormonism and organizations like the Freemasons are responding. They are seeking life changing help and because of your standing with us, we have been able to meet these sometimes crushing needs.

Within the next week or two, we will be expanding The Decker Report to Android type cell phones. Look for us in the app store on your Android phone. It is already going world-wide on iTunes and many RSS networks.

There are so many things I want to share, but time and space prevent it. I try not to bury you with an over-abundance of either newsletters or articles.  I suggest that you visit our interactive Saints Alive and/ Decker Report Facebook Pages and please click the “LIKE” button. We really need your help in getting these Pages higher up in the listings. I keep both Pages up to date with news and information.

 Stop by  for the latest radio programs and support documents, as well as get involved with my on-line, interactive Blog.  All past programs can also be found in the archives, documents.

Your brother in Christ,
Ed Decker

Thousands accepted the Book of Mormon as real because three men
stood up and claimed they saw the actual ‘gold plates.
 It turned out, like most of Mormonism, to fail the test of time.
It was a case of ‘smoke and mirrors.’ 

Just look at “These Three “Witnesses” to the Book of Mormon/ Gold Plates.

 In 1838 in Kirtland, Oliver confronted Joseph Smith with the charge of adultery with Fanny Alger, and with lying and teaching false doctrines. Oliver Cowdery was publicly charged by Joseph Smith and leading Mormons with stealing, lying, perjury, counterfeiting, adultery, and being the leader of a gang of "scoundrels of the deepest degree!"

David Whitmer claimed he saw the plates “by the eye of faith.”  Cursed by leaders such as Sidney Rigdon, Whitmer was denounced by the Prophet Joseph Smith as a "dumb beast to ride" and "an ass to bray out cursings instead of blessings."

Martin Harris was first a Quaker, then a Universalist, next a Restorationist, then a Baptist, next a Presbyterian, and then a Mormon.(1) After his excommunication in 1837, he changed his religion eight more times, going from the Shakers to one Mormon splinter group to the next, and back to the main group in 1842,  In  1838, Joseph Smith denounced him as "so far beneath contempt that to notice him would be too great a sacrifice for a gentleman to make.

Videos of the Actual Mormon Temple Rituals

Some years, while fellow ex-Mormon and friend,  Jim Spencer [ ] and  travelled through Idaho and Utah, speaking each night in different towns and cities, we ran into one Mormon zealot in a Logan, Utah church. His main purpose in attending the meeting was to yell out terrible lies, to curse me and shout me down. His behavior escalated the next night in front of a small church in Brigham City, where he accosted me and spit in my face. The police were called and we moved on to Ogden, Utah. He did not appear at our meetings again.

As often happens to folks like this, the young man found out the truth and was saved. He contacted me, apologized and shared his ‘good news’ with me. I was so blessed by this new Christian who had once cursed me.

In early July, he contacted me again to share that, on his way out of the cult, he went to the temple for the last time. This time, he brought a tiny, concealed camera that videotaped [in a somewhat rough format] the entire ceremony.   Now, I would never recommend anyone try this ‘at home’, but there are now 4 of the videos posted on YouTube. Noah [his YouTube name is newnamenoah after the secret new name he received in the temple.  I strongly recommend that you download them before they disappear.

A  Mormon Missionary sent me this quote

“The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.” [ed: Joseph Smith, History of the Church, 4:540.}
He added a little note I would guess he keeps in his wallet: in part,

My authority is above that of the kings of the earth….I am a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ… to do what he himself would do….he has chosen me .. My voice is his voice, my acts are his acts, my words are his words and my doctrine is his doctrine…..

Wow.. I sure didn’t know that! A Real humble kind of guy.

A Worshipful Master breaks out from The Lodge!

Brothers in Christ, I am the current "worshipful" master of a masonic lodge. Due to some new information which God has brought to me I have decided to renounce masonry altogether. Please pray for the people whom I have inducted into freemasonry with good intentions and those masons both in  mine and other lodges who wish to be good Christians but have been poisoned with wrong information.

Please also pray for me in this time of transition that no harm or evil will befall me due to my separation from the lodge and the subsequent testimony against freemasonry that I  plan to give. Guide my family and those of all misguided masons to seek the one true light which is our savior Jesus Christ.
  Signed,  Joe

Dear Joe,    I am so blessed by your email.  It takes strength to take a stand like yours. I will be praying for your protection, from the powers and principalities of darkness that encompass Masonry and from the vengeful actions of your former brethren in the lodge. 

Just remember that in Christ you have more power, authority and strength than all they can conjure up.

My own dad  was a Mason for over 60 years yet 2 years before his home going to heaven, he renounced it and spent those blessed two years  joyously  set free .
Be blessed and be free.   Ed Decker

Though We’ve Never Met, Though You Never Knew..
Dear Ed,

A friend of mine sent your recent update to me and I was quickly reminded of how much I was blessed back in 1983 by the ministry God had called you to.

Forgive me for not thanking you until now.  Tears form as I rejoice in my salvation through Jesus Christ and how you and your ministry was such a huge support to me, though you never knew.  Though we've never met, I would be honored to take the handkerchief from my pocket and gently wipe the spit of hatred from you and your wife. 

I apologize for the ignorance of those that have foolishly hated you, not realizing your words held the Word of Life for them, eternal life.  "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.," love being spoken from a dying, rejected, jeered, spit upon Savior.  How precious it is to have a small taste of what Christ went through on our behalf.  I trust that those types of experiences are intended to increase our appreciation for our God and Savior.

Thank you for trusting that God is able to do exceedingly, beyond ALL that we can think or imagine.

The Mormon Manuscript Series

Some many years ago, I did a small booklet set called The Mormon Manuscript Series. The Purpose was to create some fairly succinct, simple looks at the key heretical issues of Mormonism and make them easy reads.

I had been encouraged to do this by the late Keith Green, of Last Days’ Ministries, who had recently published his “Catholic Chronicles” and felt that I needed to do a similar set on the subject of Mormonism. His tragic death in 1982 brought an end to our contact, but I had been highly motived by him to complete the set. I now present them to you again, at no cost, still accurate and life changing… 30 years later.

Ed Decker! Leave Us Alone

Ed Decker! Go Away and Leave Us Alone!

I have been besieged of late to explain why I just won’t go away and leave the Masons alone to do their “good works.”  Let me share a little history about this ministry and me. 

I was in Scotland and I lay on the floor of the bathroom, violently retching . I was sure I was going to die. I had a TV show to do in just a few hours and I was certain that I wouldn't live to see it.  I pulled myself up, leaning against the wall next to the toilet, trying to pull away from the pain I was in and sort out what was happening.

I supposed that I had contracted food poisoning during the Pastors' lunch earlier,  but my table  companions, sharing the same pizza, were not in here fighting for space at this receptacle.  I remembered the two out-of-town visitors, whose attendance our host had expressed  concern over. "This is a dangerous business, and I don't know these fellows," he warned.

"Don't give it another thought," I answered. "God is our protector."

Then I recalled that one of them had offered to refresh my diet coke and I had consented.  A half hour later, I was convulsing in pain.  

Reflecting back, years later now, I guess  I should  have questioned the wisdom of going to Inverness, Scotland to do a TV program on "The Occult Origins of Scottish Rite Masonry."  My host was correct in his concern, yet God truly was my protector.

I rose up that evening by His strength and did that program, standing up. Yet, by the morning I was too ill to continue my tour and the next day began a terrible journey back to Seattle, to my own doctors and my own family. I arrived home barely able to walk. The poison had effected my involuntary muscle system and it was difficult to use my hands and feet and hold my head steady. I arrived in Seattle more than 25 pounds lighter than I left.

Tests showed that I had sustained a high, lethal dose of arsenic, enough to have killed me a few times over. It took months to recover from the incident.  Not only had the poison done serious damage to my digestive system, but I would lay in bed, sleeping fitfully while my body twitched continually. Later, the heavy metal began to work its way out through vicious sores in  the tops of my hands and my head, making a terrible odor that smelled like dog urine.

Even years later, while I was undergoing lung surgery caused by a bus accident, several blood vessels in my lower back broke  spontaneously  for apparently no reason. The doctors puzzled over the phenomenon for the better part of the day until a nurse asked my wife if I had been exposed to metallic poison in a work environment. When Carol told them about the Scotland incident, they had their answer. Tests showed that pockets of arsenic still in my system [lower back area] had been the cause and the vessels broke while I was in severe trauma.

I suppose we could have pointed out the man who poisoned me. He would have gone to prison, but as one Scottish friend warned, our host  would have paid the price at the hands of  the Masons in response.  It wasn't worth it. I am still alive and I am still speaking out the awful truth of the lodge. I am sure there are more than a few Masons in Scotland that can't understand why I am still alive.  I do. It was because God intended me to live. It wasn’t the first time  my life was threatened by the Masons and certainly not the last.

The trip to Scotland wasn't by chance. I had been studying, writing and lecturing on  Freemasonry for a number of years.  Somehow, I had become an expert.  It wasn't an easy transition.
When I began to study the Lodge with a critical eye, it meant that I had to look back at my own father, grandfather and their fathers before them for almost two hundred years. They were honest men, church men who took our faith, our family and our country seriously, fighting in its many wars.  Generation after generation, each son followed after his father and entered into membership in the Lodge. That line ended when I stepped out of the DeMoLay to join the Mormon Church.

The Mormon church told me that Masonry was a society of “secret combinations” and “works of darkness. “I was forbidden to continue membership in the De Molay and later, as an active Mormon, I would not seek to follow my father into the Lodge.

Years later, after I became a born again Christian, while I was at a service in a Southern Baptist church teaching on the LDS Temple ritual,  I discovered from an angry church Deacon that the ritual of the Masonic Lodge was the actual foundation of the LDS temple ritual.  

He told me I was courting serious harm of I continued in my path of teaching about the LDS Tempe ceremony. He said that in doing so, I was also revealing the secret rituals of the Masonic Blue Lodges.

I knew that if what he said was true, I would have to expose the roots of Masonry to the same light of truth that I was bringing to bear on Mormonism. That was easier said than done.

Within a month of that experience, I found myself at the funeral of a friend's father and once seated, discovered I was about to witness a Masonic funeral. By the time those men in their somber clothes walked down the church aisle, I knew that this was birthed in the very pit of hell and it had become rooted within the church, itself. I knew there was work to do.

It wasn't like the work hadn't been done before. Great men like Charles Finney had discovered its evil core and brought it to the church, but the church soon forgot the danger, choosing not to rile the Masons who ran their boards, paid their salaries, settling instead for the ten shekels and the shirt they offered.

For the next century, lone pastors would study it and bring out its darkness from the pulpit.  That usually resulted in the pastor being removed from that pulpit, his career usually destroyed in the process and the preaching of the truth of the lodge once again  removed from the ears of the Masons in the church.

Freemasonry and Christianity are as far from each other as the North and South poles.  His ignorance of the Luciferian roots and dark secrets of Freemasonry will be no excuse on that day of judgment for the man who calls himself a Christian Mason. Woe unto him. 

When Masons receive their own personal, white  lambskin apron, they are told it will be their covering when they stand before the great white throne judgment.   It is a tragic promise they are bound to since the great white throne is not a good place to stand before if their blood oaths, their good works and an apron are their covering.

Well, ministries like ours continue to speak the fire of truth and godly pastors are still speaking out in spite of the threats from the Masons and their the odious acts of  ignominy in defying the very Word of God.  For many valuable, free articles on this subject, visit our Freemasonry resource page at
