It would be beneficial for you to join, I was told. We make good
men better, I was promised. They waxed on about a legacy, doing
good work, and having a sense of camaraderie, and the importance
of regular meetings. And it all took place in the 'building-with-
'Is your group political?' I asked, knowing the
answer from previous chats. No.
'Ok, then what are you about?' My query was
an open door.
Chairs shifted as they glanced at each other and
then back to me. The silence was palpable. And then the hammer
'Were not Satanists'. It was said so matter-of-factually, as if
it were a normal response when at a loss for something to say. But
for me, it was as if a lightening bolt had been shot through a
dense fog. Where did this come from?
Compelled by the Satan-
bomb to find out what the Lodge was about, but not wanting to
join, I determined to obtain their rituals and philosophical
texts. Books examining and critiquing the Lodge had already been
published, but I didnt know this at the time. What I did know was
that a BODY OF INTERNAL LITERATRUE existed. Thus began a quest to
collect the texts and materials of the Lodge. Along the way, I
talked with current Masons, probed into community archives, and
studied the subject.
Freemasonry has long been called a secret
society. But this is a misnomer. Properly defined, a secret
society is an organization that intentionally remains unknown to
all outside of the closed group. However, hints of a deeper
realitya spiritual interestcannot be overlooked. Bernard E.
Jones Freemasons Guide and Compendium points to religious
underpinnings.2 And Baileys book, The Spirit of Masonry, is
devoted to the spiritual endeavor pulsing within the Craft.
Masonry does not have an authoritative text to offer clarification
in the way many religions and some ideologies do. Using religion
as a comparison, Christianity has the Old and New Testament,
Judaism the Torah and Talmud, Islam the Quran, and Hinduism builds
on the Vedas. But a Masonic scriptural authority does not exist.
In Their Own Words Religious Universalism. Masonry, around
whose altars the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahmin,
the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren
and unite in prayer to the one God who is above all the Baalim.
(p. 226). Of course, this belief brands Jesus a liar because He
emphatically stated that He was the ONLY WAY TO THE FATHER. Every
other supposed way was a LIAR AND A THIEF.
- 'Man is a god in the making' (Manly P. Hall, The Lost Keys of
Perfection in the Lodge -- The use of the word
'perfection' is found throughout Freemasonry. For example, in the
Scottish Rite, the combined degrees of 4 to 14 are called the
'Lodge of Perfection', and Degree 5 is labeled 'Perfect Master'.
Freemasonry itself is symbolic of the highest possible perfection
of mankind, and to this its great aim is to contribute; with a
view to this object all its teachings are framed.13
CONCLUSION: Scripture runs counter to the ideas of the Lodge and
Freemasonry, which seeks mystical perfection through its own
works, making it an avenue that delivers the antithesis of the
Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
CUTTING EDGE NOTE: The REAL
purpose of Freemasonry is to unite all religions of the world into
ONE with Antichrist and the False Prophet at the head. Masons are
shocked with they realize their purpose is to stage Antichrist oin
the guise of serving Jesus Christ.
