Abney Park - Salvation Army Founders

They say the founders of the Salvation Army are buried at Abney, one of the so called magnificent seven cemeteries, so armed with a camera i went in search of symbolic meaning or a photograph of something symbolic for later translation. I've never studied the history of Sally's Army and to be Frank i have no intention of becoming a pupil but even i was quietly surprised when i spotted the small brand at the top of the stone. In particular the slogan which reads BLOOD & FIRE which also features the colour burgundy as lets be honest its closer to the red of blood. Why would a religious order incorporate two key features of so called satanic worship?

  1. As you mentioned it was because you didn´t check on Salvation Army history. The words "blood and fire" stands for the blood of the Lord Jesus who shed it on the cross for our sins and the fire stands for cleansing fire of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. The red color on the brand was possibly a detail for decorative purposes only. The actual color of it is yellow.

  2. Hi there, thank you pointing the official line out to us. We're not convinced Im afraid, blood and fire! As with coats of arms, everything including the background colour has meaning. We can also associate blood and fire with their co-called hell. We've seen the red background colour on Sally Army buildings around Hackney. Thanks again...
