Did you know some Seventh-day Adventists believe that LeRoy Froom was a member of the Freemason’s and had possible Jesuit connections? One of the main reasons why I believe people are interested in knowing if Mr. Froom belonged to one of these orders or societies is the Total Onslaught series by Walter Veith. This series is an in-depth study on the book of Revelation. There is a total onslaught on Jesus Christ and this series helps reveal Satan’s deceptions in the world. Part of these deceptions involve Free Masons and the Jesuits. If LeRoy Froom was a Jesuit or Freemason then it would bring into question the changes he helped make as the associate secretary of the General Conference Ministerial Association. Click on the following link for more information on the changes LeRoy Froom made in the SDA church.
Listed below are three links that provide additional information about whether LeRoy Froom was or was not connected with a fraternal organisation.
1. Jesuits In The SDA Church Video – Danny Vierra
Danny Vierra interviews a woman who knew Benjamin George Wilkinson an educator and theologian in the Seventh-day Adventist church. June shares a few of the stories that Mr. Wilkinson personally related to her while he was alive.
The definition of a Jesuit is:
Jesuit, member of the Society of Jesus (S.J.), a Roman Catholic order of religious men founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola, noted for its educational, missionary, and charitable works, once regarded by many as the principal agent of the Counter-Reformation, and later a leading force in modernizing the church. https://www.britannica.com/topic/Jesuits
Partial Video Transcript: Jesuits In The SDA Church
15:42 – 22:53 Timestamp
June: Truth Triumphant [a book authored by Wilkenosn] was also a thorn in the side of one of our leading men in Washington D.C.
Danny: And who might that be?
June: That was L.E. Froom. LeRoy Froom, whom everybody thought revered. And Dr. Wilkinson told us that from LeRoy Froom he ordered because Wilkinson was going to have a second edition printed. Froom called the printing house. Told them to destroy the plates.
Danny: You must be kidding?
Danny: We got more to say about LeRoy Froom here in a minute to don’t we?
June: Yes we do. LeRoy Froom ordered those plates destroyed. And we said to Dr. Wilkinson “we’ll why don’t you get the plates done again?” And he said “I don’t have the money.” He was way up in his eighties then. He said “I just don’t have the money.” So if anyone has that book consider it a treasure. I mean your looking at something that the Roman church wanted to destroy okay. Because it gave the true history of the early early churches and the Waldensians and what they went through at the hands of Rome. Anyhow moving on to LeRoy Froom
Danny: Yeah. This was some of the most interesting information you shared with me because as you share this I’ll tell a little bit how God also lead me to expose some of Rome’s agents in our denomination.
June: We’ll LeRoy Froom hated Dr. Wilkinson. And he would call Dr. Wilkinson on his birthday every year and he would say “Ben, are you still alive?” He just hated him so much he was waiting for the man to die. Dr. Wilkinson told us who the early Catholic father’s were and how they destroyed truth and so we knew the names of these Catholic father’s. We’ll in Tahoma Park a little while later Dr. Froom held an evangelistic series if you can call it that but it was one it was “Faith of our Fathers” or something like that. We went to about two meetings and we couldn’t take it anymore. Everyone of the father’s that he listed as being the fore fathers of the Adventist church or of Protestantism were all the Roman Catholic father’s that Wilkinson had told us about. So at that point the next time I saw Dr. Wilkinson I said “Dr. Wilkinson is Elder Froom a Jesuit?” Dr. Wilkinson wouldn’t answer it but I could see from the look on his face that there were big questions. Because of the way this man had fought him. And we also had the book Questions On Doctrine.
Danny: That is what I want to talk about here.
June: Questions on Doctrine written and there were three men. Dr. Wilkinson one day we came to his house and he was pacing up and down and he had a manuscript in his hand. And he said “This is a book they are getting ready to print.” He said “This book is pointing a dagger at the Adventist heart.”
Danny: That presented us more in favor to the evangelical world.
June: That’s right.
Danny: That we didn’t look as peculiar now on the nature of Christ and other pivotal doctrines of the Adventist church.
June: That’s right. So Wilkinson was very upset about that. But there was nothing he could do about it. There were three authors of that book and Wilkinson said “look at this.” He said “They are not even listing the authors. They don’t even want anyone to know who the men were that were behind the writing of this book. One of them was Froom.
Danny: And the other two June were Walter E. Read and Roy Allan Anderson.
June: All three of these men were the most prominent up in the General Conference.
Danny: I don’t see LeRoy Froom’s name in here. I have a copy of Questions on Doctrines and it was published in 1957 but inside the book it says that it was prepared by a representative group of Seventh-day Adventists leaders, bible teachers and editors.
June: These were the things that were going on in Takoma Park while we were there.
Danny: Wickedness in high places.
June: Wickedness in high places. Thirty years later we were living up in Oregon at the time and at a church potluck we met a lady just for the day. She was an Adventist lady. I don’t know if she was visiting relatives or what she was doing. But in the conversation I found out that she had lived at Takoma Park for a while. And I found out the years and everything and somehow in the conversation she told us a story and she said that she had a Catholic friend, a good Catholic friend. And one day she said to her I want to introduce you to a vegetarian diet. So she took her to the sanitarium hospital where we had a lovely dining room. And many visitors would come in. And so she took her there and they were eating their food and in walked Elder Froom and another General Conference man with him. And this woman about dropped her fork, the Catholic woman. And she said what are they doing here? And our Adventist lady said “What do you mean by that? That’s Elder Froom you know. Up in the General Conference and she named the other man.” And the woman said “No, No, they are Catholic priests.” And our friend. Our Adventist lady said “What do you mean? They are Adventist ministers.” This woman said “No” She says “I’ve been at mass when they were performing mass. I’ve been in Catholic churches where these men were performing mass.”
Danny: I’ve heard that story from another person who said that the man who was walking with LeRoy Froom that day. That the woman identified they were Catholic priests was the author of Questions on Doctrine, Roy Allan Anderson.
June: So this lady passed this on to me. I wish now I had gotten her name and address.
2. LeRoy Froom’s Freemason Grave Site
This short video by Truth Ministry NFP reveals LeRoy Froom was buried in the Freemason section of George Washington Cemetery in Adelphi, Maryland.
The definition of Freemasonry:
Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas – a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge – which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides. http://www.ugle.org.uk/what-is-freemasonry
Video Transcript: Le Roy Froom a Freemason
Timestamp: 00:00 – 02:34
This is the grave of LeRoy Froom, a man who was a historian of the SDA church. He was a man who wrote a couple of books that changed the Adventist religion. The books like Evangelism and The Coming of the Comforter. He was the evangelist of the doctrine of a triune God. He is more responsible than anyone else in the SDA church for the acceptance of the doctrine of Trinity by the SDA church. When he published the book Evangelism, which is actually a compilation of statements of Ellen G White and for which many falsely believe that Ellen White published during her life, it was actually Froom who compiled the statements of Ellen G White and put the statements together according to his desire, even making up the chapter titles on his own, that she never wrote, so that it would look as if Ellen White supported the doctrine of a triune God. However, that is not true.
What is interesting about this grave, when we arrived here to the cemetery, we went to the office and asked for information on how to find the grave and they gave us the map of the cemetery identifying individual sections. They told us that Froom’s grave was in the Masonic section. So, he is buried in the section that is allocated for Freemasons. They even wrote it by hand, Masonic section B, and the map also identifies it as the Masonic section. Here you can see the symbol of Masonic education, the Aladdin’s lamp. The graves around him contain other, more famous masonic symbols, like the square and compasses, with letter “G” in the middle. Even the occult inverted pentagram. But the Aladdin’s lamp represents the enlightenment and Masonic education. You can see the same symbol on the web site of the Supreme Council, 33 degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Master Craftsman Program – scottishrite.org/members/masonic-education/srmc/ in Washington DC, where we came from just 30 minutes ago
So the man who was responsible for the change of religion of the SDA church was a Freemason
3. Q&A with Tom Norris – Was LeRoy Froom A Freemason?
(Update: November 25, 2019 – the link below is no longer available. To see a PDF copy of the page please click here.)
James Butler asks the following question on Allexperts.com which is a large question and answer website service:
Am wondering if LeRoy Froom was ever a Freemason?
Tom Norris who answers the question was raised as a Seventh-day Adventist in Takoma Park, Maryland and has spent significant time conducting independent research in the General Conference Archives and the Ellen G. White Estate. Here is the conclusion of Mr. Norris:
It is very unlikely that Froom would be a Mason. However, more research needs to be done before this issue can be fully resolved . The SDA’s were clearly anti-Mason, and Froom had to have known this fact. However, considering that William Miller, the Father of the Advent Movement, was a Mason, what would it matter if Froom has some association with the Masons? Perhaps someone, who was a Mason, gave him these grave sites?
The problem with Froom is not that he was a Mason, (if he was), but that he did not understand the Gospel. While Froom was one of the most published and dogmatic of the 20th century SDA theologians, his understanding of the Gospel was very poor. Moreover, his official history of 1888, entitled “Movement of Destiny,” is a very dishonest and harmful apologetic that helped pave the way for the tragedy of Glacier View.
So Froom is part of the problem and one reason why the SDA’s are so confused about both theology and church history.
Please feel free to read Tom Norris full answer by visiting the link above.
Jet’s of Light agrees with Mr. Norris conclusion about LeRoy Froom’s book “Movement of Destiny” being a very dishonest and harmful apologetic. We would like to encourage every Seventh-day Adventist to study for themselves the truth about God in light of the fact that there may have been leaders in the Seventh-day Adventist church steering us in a direction opposite of the truth’s of the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy.
The enemy of souls has sought to bring in the supposition that a great reformation was to take place among Seventh-day Adventists, and that this reformation would consist in giving up the doctrines which stand as the pillars of our faith, and engaging in a process of reorganization. Were this reformation to take place, what would result? The principles of truth that God in His wisdom has given to the remnant church, would be discarded. Our religion would be changed. The fundamental principles that have sustained the work for the last fifty years would be accounted as error. A new organization would be established. Books of a new order would be written.

Tom Norris full answer is no longer at that link.
Do you have it elsewhere?
I would appreciate reading it.
I have watched Danny Vierra’s interview where it is mentioned about him being a Jesuit.
He certainly was involved in many areas of SDA literature, which is questionable in my mind.
I read, or heard in a video, perhaps the above video, that he was hardly ever in his office, but did all of his work in his own home. I certainly wondered why…
Did he not want others to see what he was doing???
And what about his co-hort, Elder Read??
If you can enlighten me on this matter, I would appreciate it.
They also were putting out Ministry Magazine for many years…
Hello Muriel, Thank you for your comment. You are correct. The link is no longer available. Please find a PDF copy of the page that was referred to regarding Tom Norris.
Thank you so much. Unfortunately, the videos have been removed, which in my opinion is a proof that Froom was a Jesuit.
Muriel Who is he Dr. Read that you refer to?
Danny Vierra mentions his name (see transcript above). His full name is Walter Edwin Read (1882-1976). He wrote a book it looks like called: The Bible, the Spirit of Prophecy, and the Church. Here is a link: https://m.egwwritings.org/en/book/952.2#0
The charge against LeRoy Froom introducing the “Trinity” to the SDA Church is false. I would like to direct you to this link: https://www.scribd.com/document/366003845/LeRoy-Froom-Acquitted-2017
Of course LeRoy Froom didn’t introduce the trinity teaching to the SDA church. It was introduced earlier than those documents. Herbert Lacey introduced the doctrine into the SDA church in Cooranbong in 1896. It was not discouraged by anyone at that stage. Prescott and Daniels assisted Marian Davies (who had written copious notes from Lacey’s lectures) to write Desire of Ages which appears to be used by people on both sides of the fence to prove Ellen was a non-trinitarian or trinitarian, depending on their view. Do a little digging around and you will find that Froom was involved but not the one who introduced it.
