Several years ago I conducted a
Gospel meeting in Toccoa, Georgia. While I was there I
decided to check on a rumor I had heard about a mammoth granite
monument that supposedly had been erected in the nearby town of
Elberton in March 1980.
The New Age
According to the rumor, the monument had been paid for by a
mysterious group affiliated with
the New Age Movement, an
international amalgamation of Humanist societies whose aim is to
prepare the way for the coming of "Lord Maitreya," a Messiah who will
save the world. The guiding force behind the movement is
the Lucis Trust located at
the United Nations Plaza in New
The movement has been well documented in Constance Cumbyís
book "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow." This is the same group
that ran full page ads in all the leading U.S. newspapers in the
spring of 1982 announcing "the Christ is now here" and will soon
The group also runs ads in magazines promoting a
special Humanist prayer.
I was able to confirm that the remarkable monument truly does exist.
It is located on the highest point in Elbert County, about seven
miles outside the town of Elberton, Ga.
It is 20 feet high, taller
than the monoliths of Stonehenge in England. It consists of 951
cubic feet of granite which weighs an estimated 245,000 pounds. The
center stone and capstone contain slits and holes that are designed
to provide astronomical observations of the sun, moon and stars.
These are patterned after similar ancient pagan shrines in Europe.
The monument is dedicated to an "Age of Reason."
"Let these be Guidestones to an Age of Reason" is carved on each
side of the capstone in four dead languages: Sanskrit, Egyptian
Hieroglyphics, Babylonian Cuneiform, and Classical Greek. The four
major granite slabs that radiate out from the central stone contain
the ten commandments of the New Age of Reason.
The commandments are
presented in the eight languages which are spoken by two-thirds of
Mankind: English, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish,
The New Age
The ten commandments are as follows:
Maintain humanity under five
hundred million in perpetual balance with nature
Guide reproduction wisely,
improving fitness and diversity
Unite humanity with a living new
Rule passion, faith, tradition,
and all things with tempered reason
Protect people and nations with
fair laws and just courts
Let all nations rule internally,
resolving external disputes in a world court
Avoid petty laws an useless
Balance personal rights with
Prize truth, beauty,
love...seeking harmony with the infinite
Be not a cancer on earth...leave
room for nature...
The project was financed by a mysterious man who identified himself
only as "Mr. R. C. Christian." He admitted that was not his real
name, but he refused to reveal his true identity to anyone except
the president of the local bank in Elberton.
He stated that he represented "a small group of loyal Americans who
believe in God." He said they lived outside of Georgia and simply
wished to "leave a message for future generations." He claimed the
group had planned the project for more than 20 years. Despite
intensive investigations by many news agencies, the identity of R.
C. Christian and his group has remained a secret to this day.
Based on my study of the New Age Movement, I have no doubt that the
Georgia Guidestones are an expression of the basic philosophy of
that movement. Since Satan is using that movement to herald the
emergence of a universal False Messiah, I can only conclude that the
Georgia Guidestones may well contain the ten commandments of the
Look at how ominous the very first commandment is:
"Maintain humanity under five
hundred million in perpetual balance with nature."
There are 5 billion people on the earth
To implement this first commandment, 4.5 billion people will
have to be eliminated!
Commandment 4 makes it clear that all
true Christians would be a
clear target of any elimination program, because Christians give
primacy to faith.
Commandment 2 is an expression of the Nazi concept
of controlled reproduction of the species.
Commandments 2, 5, 7 & 8

is an expression of the essence of most oriental, mystical
Lest there be any doubt left as to the motivation of "R. C.
Christian" and his group, consider the following quotation taken
from a philosophical document which the group sent to the builder of
"It is very probable that humanity now possesses the
knowledge needed to establish an effective world government. In some
way that knowledge must be widely seeded in the consciousness of all
mankind. Very soon the hearts of our human family must be touched
and warmed so we will welcome a global rule of reason."
exaltation of human reason and the emphasis on world government as
the only hope for Man.
The document refers to the monument as,
"a cluster of graven stonesí whose
purpose is "to convey our ideas across time to other human
beings . . . We hope they [the commandments] will merit
increasing acceptance and that through their silent persistence
they will hasten in a small degree the coming Age of Reason."
From The Giorgian Guidestones
read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries,
the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting
vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is
filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the
word of a demon than the word of God. It is a
history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and
Persecution is not an original feature in any religion;
but it is always the strongly marked feature of all
religions established by law.
Question with boldness even the existence of God;
because if there be one, He must approve the homage of
Reason rather than that of blindfolded Fear.
It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are 20
gods, or no God. It neither picks my
pocket nor breaks my leg.
Christianity... (has become) the most perverted system
that ever shone on man.... Rogueries, absurdities and
untruths were perpetrated upon the teachings of Jesus
by a large band of dupes and importers led by Paul, the
first great corrupter of the teaching of Jesus.
The clergy converted the simple teachings of Jesus
into an engine for enslaving mankind and adulterated by
artificial constructions into a contrivance to filch
wealth and power to themselves... these clergy, in fact,
constitute the real Anti-Christ.
I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most
fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history
of mankind has preserved - the Cross. Consider
what calamities that engine of grief has produced!
The doctrine of the divinity of Jesus is made a
convenient cover for absurdity.
The Government of the United States is not in any sense
founded on the Christian religion.
The Christian religion not only was at first
attended with miracles, but even at this day cannot be
believed by any reasonable person without one.
During almost fifteen centuries has the legal
establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has
been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and
indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the
laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.
What influence in fact have Christian ecclesiastical
establishments had on civil society? In many instances
they have been upholding the thrones of political
tyranny. In no instance have they been seen as the
guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who
wished to subvert the public liberty have found in the
clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government,
instituted to secure and perpetuate liberty, does not
need the clergy.
I can hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity
to be true; for if so the plain language of the text
seems to show that the men who do not believe,
and this would include my Father, Brother, and almost
all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And
this is a damnable doctrine.
One does well to put on gloves when reading the New
Testament. The proximity of so much uncleanliness almost
forces one to do this.
It is a farce to call any being virtuous whose virtues
do not result from the exercise of its own reason.
