“It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.” —Ecclesiastes 7:5
This is so in the face, one can tell they aren't even trying to "hide" it anymore from those can "see".
I considered doing an article long ago on the apostate Christian rock bands and how they have marked themselves. One can see the single eye Horus markings, such as in Toby Mac's latest album with his single huge eyeball right on the front of a bright green cover talked about here, and the parade of skulls and other questionable graphics. I am glad others have exposed these artists, but then I found a group that is so marked with occult and other questionable symbols, I thought well I will go ahead and post on this. Some of you may even find it hard to believe how extreme this all is.
The Whosoevers are a so called "Christian" band growing more in popularity. At this link notice the skull and the number "23" on the lower right. On an older article on this blog, we have been having a discussion about these markings. [scroll down to the latter comments]
What Symbols Can Tell You #1 The Eye of Horus
During the course of this conversation I found their blog.
Tell me what you think seeing the X, the obivous OWL, the saturn spirals in the wings, and the "V" of the forehead and smaller "V" below.......Count the occult symbols. Jesus is already risen, Who are they calling on to ARISE? And what is the meaning of the number 37?
Ok if they see the HORUS eyes and other satanic symbols as being part of the "organized religion" world, why is it on THEIR ART WORK TOO? Why do they have the "revolution fist" think Che Guevara with their band logo on it, a logo which by the way is an ENCIRCLED W?
Seeing that organized religion graphic, the band members have worn that too on T-Shirts.
Yes the first letter of the band's name but if you know about the connotations of how "W" is used out there, a very questionable one. Remembering the Vs used on the Owl and the design, W can be used as an occult marker as well
The letter “W” in the mystical practices of Kabalism is emblematic of the “Dark Side” of magick.
Why do their band members wear the art of one Shepard Fairey with it's mind control meme of OBEY, Pentagrams and worse? By the way Shepard Fairey did the iconic Obama-HOPE poster that we saw all over the place during the 2008 election.
How many hand signs in this picture? The eyes with acouple are very scary or being made to look scary.
What's with this guy, and that SS [Nazi] Skull T-Shirt? So they slap a Christian saying on an other wise Satanic T-Shirt and call it a day? Doesn't this guy know what the SS-lightening symbols meant to the Nazis and it had to do with death and destruction?
This band and other affiliated groups like POD, have been invited to play at Calvary Chapel churches.
Here is a poster promoting one of their shows at a Calvary Chapel [the blue arrow is from me pointing out the band name, the W with the circle around it is their logo. The Term "murder your flesh" is creepy enough, skewing what the Bible says.
Isn't Ryan Ries a son of a Calvary Chapel pastor?
This is supposed to be an ad, for a "Christian" rock concert. You're kidding me right? [blue arrows added by me to point out names]
Here is one of their videos, watch with the sound off, but you can see the symbols on the shirts and more. Why does one wear a sweat shirt, with Catholic iconography of a "pierced heart"?
One of The Whosoever's members is Brian Welch, also known as Head, who used to be a member of the secular heavy metal band Korn. He came out as having became a Christian and got involved in the Whosoever "ministry" according to Wikipedia.:
In 2008, Sonny Sandoval, of P.O.D., and Ryan Ries, son of Pastor Raul Ries of Calvary Chapel Golden Springs, Lacey Sturm of Flyleaf created a ministry with Welch and freestyle motocross aerialist Ronnie Faisst. Taking the name "The Whosoevers" (from John 3:16), the ministry "seek[s] to impact those whose pain has previously driven them to addictive or self-destructive behaviors.""
By the way, the lyrics are scary too, I checked a few out, I may post a few in comments, but for now will spare my readers.
Anyone as disturbed by the use of these symbols as I am? My advice for any Christian family keep the young people away from any modern "Christian" music, unless you have checked it out for yourself and even then be careful.
