The symbol of the Knights Templar
Anders Behring Breivik (Norwegian Killer)
Christian Fundamentalist or Religious Tyrant?
Freemason, Knights Templar, Agnostic and more?
July 25, 2011
Breivik has already started a revolution -- one likely to fuel rising hostility toward genuine Christians and conservatives who still value the American Constitution and the freedom it offers us. It effectively silences many voices that would speak out on behalf of the Biblical moral values that made our nation good, generous and prosperous.
The man who committed the atrocities on Friday, July 22, 2011 in Norway is being called a “Christian fundamentalist,” and already, stories are hitting the mainstream media telling the world to look out for Christian fundamentalists.
Frank Schaeffer, son of theologian Francis Schaeffer, has likened the Norway killer to those who oppose abortion in his article on Saturday titled ”Christian Jihad? Why We Should Worry About Right-Wing Terror Attacks Like Norway’s in the US,” saying ”the terror unleashed on Norway” is “the sort of white, Christian, far right terror America can expect more of.”
But is the Norway killer a fundamentalist Christian (someone who follows the fundamental teachings of the Bible)? The answer to this is a resounding no, for there are no teachings in the Bible that would condone these merciless acts of violence. The killer of over 90 people in Norway cannot claim the name of “Christian” regardless of what he or the media say no more than Hitler could legitimately claim to be one even though he would sometimes refer to himself as a conservative and a Christian, the very thing the Norway killer referred himself to on his Facebook account.
We know that many in the world will now blame “Christian fundamentalism” on this act in Norway. In time, and escalated because of these types of violent acts driven by demonic forces, Bible believing Christians will be told they can no longer say Jesus Christ is the only way to God. It will be a hate crime. As was the case in the 911 terrorist attack in 2001, the Norway shootings will be used to further the progress of a one-world unified religion that will have no place for the Bible-believing Christian.
In 2006, Rick Warren helped set the tone for animosity and marginalization against Bible-believing Christians (Fundamentalists) when he stated that fundamentalism will be “one of the big enemies of the 21st century. . . . Muslim fundamentalism, Christian fundamentalism, Jewish fundamentalism, secular fundamentalism – they’re all motivated by fear. Fear of each other.’”1 Less than a year earlier, he defined what he means by Christian fundamentalism when he spoke at the Pew Forum on Religion and said:
"Today there really aren’t that many Fundamentalists left; I don’t know if you know that or not, but they are such a minority; there aren’t that many Fundamentalists left in America … Now the word ‘fundamentalist’ actually comes from a document in the 1920s called the Five Fundamentals of the Faith. And it is a very legalistic, narrow view of Christianity." Quote by Rick Warren, May 2005
The fundamentals of the Christian faith include things like the deity of Jesus Christ, the blood atonement, and the inerrancy of Scripture. It is a sad day when the world, the media, and “America’s pastor” think Christian fundamentalism is an enemy and a threat in the way they mean. The Christian fundamentals are the Gospel. One following these fundamentals will care about the souls of the unsaved that they might be saved through faith in Jesus Christ.
"A true Christian fundamentalist remembers the words of Scripture: “[t]he Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (II Peter 3:9).2
In truth, according to 1 John, love is meant to be the motivating factor in sharing the Gospel. Obviously, Anders Behring Breivik did not have love or the salvation of the people he killed in mind on Friday.
Many people, when trying to discredit Christian fundamentalists, refer to the Inquisitions; but it was the Christian fundamentalists who were being murdered during Inquisitions (by the Catholic church) – not the other way around. On Anders Behring Breivik’s blog, according to one article, he stated:
“Today’s Protestant church is a joke. . . . I am a supporter of an indirect collective conversion of the Protestant church back to the Catholic.”1 So like the ancient Inquisitioners, Anders Behring Breivik, a fundamentalist of his own making, is opposed to Christian fundamentalists and certainly cannot be labeled as one himself. The acts of violence he committed are not that of a Christian fundamentalist but rather that of a religious tyrannist, which is the spirit of antichrist.
"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. [the Gospel] 1 John 4:8-9
"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time." 1 John 2:18
“Norway Bombing: Attacker, Shooter Anders Behring Breivik a Christian?”

The Christian Post
One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests,” is the only post on the Twitter account of Anders Behring Breivik, the man who has been arrested as the possible culprit of Friday’s bombing in Oslo, Norway, and for opening fire on a nearby youth camp. The tweet was inspired by a quote by the British philosopher John Stuart Mill.
So far, 92 deaths have been reported, 85 of which were from the youth camp rampage, but the total number may increase as the day wears on. . . .
OnlineSocialMedia.net reports that on Breivik’s Facebook page he listed his interests as body building, hunting, freemasonry, stock analysis and the Modern Warfare 2 video game. Breivik said he had completed “3,000 hours of study in micro and macro finance, religion,” and describes himself as being both Christian and conservative. . . .
Larry Keffer of the Biblical Research Center and Norwegian evangelist Petar Keseljevic spoke to The Christian Post on Saturday about the attacks and about Breivik. . . . Keffer warns that people should not think that just because Breivik says he is a Christian that he actually is one.
“When I was out in Norway,” he said, “the people there thought they were Christian because they were Norwegian.” Many people in the so-called “Christian nation,” he says, claim the faith but haven’t necessarily been genuinely converted.
“A true Christian would not go and … shoot people in a camp or blow up buildings,” he said. “That’s not what a Christian does. So just because a man claims to be a Christian, or even believes that he is a Christian, does not necessarily make him so.”
“The Bible says that ‘you know them by their fruit.’” Click here to continue reading.
Note: In another Christian Post article, it states that Anders Behring Breivik said: “ Today’s Protestant church is a joke. Priests in jeans who march for Palestine and churches that look like minimalist shopping centres. I am a supporter of an indirect collective conversion of the Protestant church back to the Catholic.”1
