John D. Rockefeller and the Bible

John-D-Rockefeller-senHaving heard of John D. Rockefeller’s Christian faith, I searched online. There were some who called him a capitalist devil, and others who called him a devout Christian. All agreed he was a brilliant businessman. This is of interest to me because we speak often about a “Rothschild Rockefeller Illuminati” connection. 
I am personally convinced “Old Man Rockefeller” was an amazing Christian, and that he successfully passed the faith on to his son, John D. Rockefeller Jr. Because of his Biblical recognition that having great wealth would bring an equally great responsibility and accounting before God, Junior was reluctant  to assume control of his father’s empire, when Senior wanted to retire. 
John Jr. raised his children to be God fearing Bible believing Christians. They prayed, memorized scriptures daily, and were taught to live moral Christian lives. He and his wife Abbey had six children, a daughter and the five Rockefeller brothers:

  • Abigail Aldrich “Abby” Rockefeller (November 9, 1903 — May 27, 1976)
  • John Davison Rockefeller III (March 21, 1906 — July 10, 1978)
  • Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller (July 8, 1908 — January 26, 1979)
  • Laurance Spelman Rockefeller (May 26, 1910 — July 11, 2004)
  • Winthrop Aldrich Rockefeller (May 1, 1912 — February 22, 1973)
  • David Rockefeller (born June 12, 1915)

David is now the lone surviving member of John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s children. I sometimes wonder what place his Christian upbringing has in David’s life today. He’s accused of horrible things in the blogosphere. Is he an evil puppeteer? davidrockefellerIs he misunderstood? 
At least for this moment, I will say a sincere prayer for David Rockefeller, for the sake of his loving father and grandfather.  ~TD 

The Men Who Built America: John D. Rockefeller’s Faith

by Kurt Jaros
In my previous post I introduced you to John D. Rockefeller a prolific businessman who get his start in the oil industry. As I mentioned, Rockefeller was a devotedly religious man and one of America’s greatest philanthropists.
Regarding his Christian faith, Rockefeller would read the Bible daily, attend prayer meetings twice a week and even led his own Bible study with his wife. He tithed, rested on the Sabbath and gave away much of his money to charity. Burton Folsom Jr. has noted, “he sometimes gave tens of thousands of dollars to Christian groups, while, at the same time, he was trying to borrow over a million dollar to expand his business.” Additionally, Rockefeller took time to spend with his family, something that confused many businessmen.
Rockefeller’s philanthropy was extensive. As his own personal fortune grew, so did the amount of money he gave to good causes. By the time he was 45 years old, he had given away $100,000 per year. At 53, he hit $1,000,000 per year, and at 80 he gave away $138,000,000. In total, historians estimate that he gave away $550,000,000 which is more than any other American before him.
His philosophy of giving was founded upon biblical principles. He truly believed in the biblical principle found in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
With Rockefeller’s philanthropy, people were able to build schools, churches and hospitals. He was able to support missionaries and was able to bring the message of Christianity the whole world. His support led to privately funded teams of scientists who found cures for yellow fever, meningitis and hookworm. His giving also led to vast improvements in education for many. He gave tens of millions to the University of Chicago, black schools, Southern schools and Baptist schools. Yet, not all the schools continually received money; improved results were a requirement. This was based upon Rockefeller’s interpretation of the parable of the talents and the Apostle Paul’s writing that, “if any would not work, neither should he eat.”
As he neared the end of his life, Rockefeller learned how to enjoy the small things in life. He learned how to tango, hired a caddy to help with his golf swing and spent more time with his family—especially his grandkids. He would also watch people who passed his house and gave dimes to children telling them to work and to save.
Rockefeller serves as a great example of what it means to be a good steward of what God has given us. He also is a reminder to abide by those seemingly counterintuitive instructions to rest on the Sabbath and to give so that we might have more.

Right now you may be thinking, TD has taken leave of his senses. I don’t blame you. I am fully aware of the organizations David is part of. But the real world is  full of surprises. Things are often not as they seem. And I know how hard a Christian father prays that his children and grandchildren would find their way to heaven.
Now to prove that this is not a one sided puff piece for David Rockefeller I will leave you with a quote from him that I find most troubling:

For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.[67]

  1. TD, check the history of Coal Mining in US. Rockie was not the great benevolent leader

    • k2, I know this is a controversial subject. I give no answers, only questions. So let the challenges come. I’m as interested as anyone else.

  2. If I may, and by no means do I count myself an authority, nor do I question his Christianity.
    Rockefeller speaks to the miners — September 20, 1915
    We are all partners in a way. Capital can’t get along without you men, and you men can’t get along without capital. When anybody comes along and tells you that capital and labor can’t get along together that man is your worst enemy. We are getting along friendly enough here in this mine right now, and there is no reason why you men cannot get along with the managers of my company when I am back in New York.
    United Mine Workers’ leader John Lawson comments on Junior’s visit to Colorado — September, 1915
    I believe Mr. Rockefeller is sincere … I believe he is honestly trying to improve conditions among the men in the mines. His efforts probably will result in some betterments which I hope may prove to be permanent.
    However, Mr. Rockefeller has missed the fundamental trouble in the coal camps. Democracy has never existed among the men who toil under the ground — the coal companies have stamped it out. Now, Mr. Rockefeller is not restoring democracy; he is trying to substitute paternalism for it. -Excerpt from The Ludlow Massacre, The Rockefellers, American Experience Series (PBS)
    Excerpt from The Miners in Two Parts

  3. With History having suffered from the Progressive Revisionists, I attempt to examine a subject from diverse positions available and when that fails to satisfy use the brain God gave us to explore the unmentioned possibilities.
    or as my ‘Friend’ Kafka taught me:
    My experience, the truth is not, that convenient.” -Kafka
    Segregated Group Think [S.G.T.] or if you prefer singularity in thought and reason excludes the probability of possibilities of qualified cause and effect agents.
    Who distills truth does so with preconceived notions that act to filter out pre-determined impurities [possibilities], resulting in false outcomes, oversimplification, and positive outcomes for any given agenda.
    God Protect and Bless FOTM! Thank you for the space 🙂

  4. I actually want to publicly ask these questions. They perplex me. Old man Rockefeller tithed, supported missions, gave away fortunes, supported the Gospel worldwide. He also, infamously, played hard ball in his business dealings. He showed extreme caution to raise his son in a way that would please God. And his son, John Jr., went to great lengths to raise his extremely privileged children to be people who would not be ruined by their wealth, but love and serve Jesus Christ.
    But now, David, John’s youngest (at 100 years old this June), is most widely known for his involvements in things like the Trilateral Commission and Chase Manhattan Bank. There is no doubt that the rich and powerful try to meddle in the affairs of governments. If I were rich and powerful, I would also exert all my power to influence government towards things I believe are good.
    I know a man who learned during a weekend on David’s estate in Seal Harbor, Maine, that President Reagan talked on the phone almost daily with David Rockefeller, and that they were very close. This weekend was during the time when Ronald Reagan was president. I like Reagan, so this shocked me enough that I question what I know about both Reagan and Rockefeller to this day.

  5. 1) I am not to judge. It is between them and God Almighty and what they have decided to do with God’s son, Jesus Christ.
    2) I know a lot of good, well-intentioned people that will not get to Heaven.
    3) I also know a lot of good, well-intentioned people that are in good civic organizations that do not have a clue as to what the heirarchy of that organization is doing.
    For example: I will use the Methodist church for this example. I was raised in the Methodist church. Some of my best friends and most of my current neigbors are Methodist. My siblings are Methodist. I quilt every Monday in a Methodist church. I also know what the heirarchy of the Methodist church stands for — women ministries, homosexuality, legal abortions, ordaining homosexuals as leaders of the church, support for the DemocRAT and RHINO parties and sprinkling as a form of Baptisim. The Methodist I know do not, in any way, support the above mentioned doctrine. Some of them know it is going on but remain Methodist, some, like me, associate with Methodist but support only the local church.
    I challenge any one reading this to menton any organization there is, and I bet the same thing is happening. The rank and file simply do not know what is going on in the heirarchy of the organization. There is this huge disconnect. This was brought home to me when Clinton was president. One of my colleagues was anti-abortion, anti-homosexuals, anti-adultery, anti-just about everything Clinton stood for but she adored Bill Clinton. This is what needs to be explained.

  6. I have read that the Rockefellers are Marrano Jews. Whether true or false, one thing remains relevant now: John D. Rockefeller himself showed deep interest in the British concept of eugenics, and the Foundation that bears his name today has funded eugenics experiments on people, has funded Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood and is all in on the New World Order.
    The Rockefeller Family, for all practical purposes, is a Rothschild machine in America. I don’t believe they’re to be trusted at all.

  7. I have read the same about Rockefellers being Marrano. Who knows ? But often it does explain an apparent discrepancy between the public figures professed beliefs and their behavior. One such figure is Nancy Pelosi who Claims to be Catholic, yet supports abortion. She is not the only one.
    As far as the Rockefellers go, whether Marrano or not, It is also known that many Satanists hide behind Religion. Would it really be that hard to understand that Evil cloaks itself in the outer clothes of goodness as a cover to bring about it agenda ? I have read way too many heinous things done by the Rockefellers to even begin to mention here. In my understanding, someone cannot call themselves a Christian when they knowingly ruin so many lives unless they are self deluding, or as mentioned above, using religion as a cover.

  8. Ignore what the man says with his mouth (anyone can claim christianity, lest we forget even obomber claims that.) It was written “Know them by their fruits” What are his fruits, and are we able to know what they are without media censorship or puff pieces, and things attributed to his corporations and not him specifically?

  9. Hello. Can you all please help explain this to me? In my studies of conspiracy claims the name ROCKEFELLER keeps popping up. The Rockefeller family is associated with the global Satanic conspiracy. Their collective wealth is in the TRILLIONS of dollars, far richer than billionaires like Bill Gates and Donald Trump. I have read Rockefeller statements about a one world new world order, social Darwinism/eugenics, and all of those things associated with Anti-Christ practices and beliefs, including the desire to create a one world religious political system.
    Then this was apparently thrown off track by the following: I read in Wikipedia and other websites that John D Rockefeller was a “Devout Baptist Christian” of the Northern Baptist Convention, and was very much into abstaining from destructive habits and gave a lot of money to Christian groups. But here is my question: Was Rockefeller a true born again Christian who’s later children and grandchildren went bad and are used of Satan to bring in the new world order, or, was he genuine, and simply used by Satan as one of his agents, unknowingly, or, was he an evil liar who INTENTIONALLY PRETENDED to be a Christian, in order to further deceive people? That is my question for you all about the Rockefellers.

    • The Rockefeller family is an enigma to me. John D. Rockefeller and his son, John Jr., were both highly committed Christians. David Rockefeller was raised memorizing scripture verses with his siblings. So we are left with a big question mark. That’s my opinion. ~ TD
