In Review: The Fearful Master

Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Psalm 2:1-4

This book reminds me of the passage from Psalm 2.  It is not new thing for wicked men to plot evil things.  In The Fearful Master G. Edward Griffin does a masterful job at documenting and detailing how wicked men have plotted together in the forming of the United Nations.  This is by no means a "new" book, but written before I was even born.  However, it does its purpose to show the corruptness of those men in power, yes even in the United States government, and their marxist/socialist agenda. 

On the one hand, this book was extremely difficult to read.  It outlines the atrocities committed by the U.N., the horrors, and the blatant evil men who conducted themselves in a shrewd and unscrupulous manner to do what they pleased.  As I read it, these evils weighed heavily on my mind, the despair lingering with that awful knot in my stomach.  This is our history?  This is the "great" United States that just rolled over and did the bidding of the U.N. without question?  We are/have been funding such horrendous evils?  Truly, there was no spine or morals in the people of the U.S. then, or now.

On the other hand, this was easy to read.  Easy in the sense that Griffin is a very talented writer, for this book was no mere textbook of facts, it is a riveting telling of the truth, history coming alive, almost as if it were a work of fiction.  Only this is no mere fiction, this is the world we live in.  You cannot help but marvel at the way he draws you in.  He even includes many pictures of the men and events he documents, as if his words are not vivid enough.

Though this book is older (1964), it explains the foundations, founders, and early actions of the U.N. It is extremely useful to have your eyes opened to the truth of these matters. 

We have hope, however, for the Psalmist finishes by saying:

Serve the LORD with fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.
Indeed, how blessed are those who put their trust in King Jesus!  He is victorious and reigning in Heaven.

This book receives 4 Stars from me.  I would recommend this to any who wish to learn the history of the U.N.


  1. I love reading your book reviews. So honest and informative (and therefore my "to read" list is growing ever longer). :) Just wondering (and you may have said this in an earlier blog post, but I just started reading your blog not too long ago), do you read any fiction at all? I've loved your choices of books so far, so I was just wondering. :)

    1. Thanks, Bailey. (: I know, reading lists are fun and yet daunting because they grow faster than you consume them! Ha.

      I do read fiction, just not as much. Last year I read a few fiction books. An overview is here:

      But the fiction books included: The Westing Game, Duncan's War, The Last Disciple, The Last Sacrifice, & The Last Temple. The last three were a trilogy. The Westing game was a fun young age mystery. Duncan's War is from a series about the Scottish Covenanters (want to read the rest this year), so a historical fiction. And the Trilogy was about Revelation/Fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, so I guess an eschatological/biblical/historical fiction lol! I enjoyed them all, but the Westing Game wasn't a favorite.

      I may even try and read a Jane Austen this year, been a few years since I've read her books. (: What kind of fiction to you gravitate toward?


Dear Reader,

When commenting, I would appreciate two of the following: first, that with humility of mind you might consider others better than yourself. Second, that you would not use inappropriate language on my blog.

Phil 1:21, Eph 5:3-4.

Thanks! (:
