THE CUTTING EDGE
RELIGION OF FREEMASONRY
Since Freemasonry claims to be a religion, the most important teaching it can hold for its adherents is the correct instruction as to what happens to the eternal souls of its adherents. At this point, I can hear the protestations of many Masons, saying that Freemasonry is not a religion. Rather than having me answer that question, I think we should allow the greatest Freemason of all time, Albert Pike, answer that for us. Listen to his words: [Emphasis mine]
1) "Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion; and its teachings are instruction of religion." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 213, teachings of the 13th Degree, Royal Arch of Solomon]
2) "Masonry ... is the universal, eternal immutable religion, such as God planted it in the heart of universal humanity. No creed has ever been long-lived that was not built on this foundation ... The ministers of this religion are all Masons who comprehend it and are devoted to it; its sacrifices to God are good works, the sacrifices of the base and disorderly passions, the offering up of self-interest on the altar of humanity, and perpetual efforts to attain to all the moral perfection of which man is capable." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 219, teachings of the 14th Degree, Grand Elect, Perfect, and Sublime Mason]
3) "Perfect truth is not attainable anywhere ... thus Masonry is a continual struggle toward the light ... Religion, to obtain currency and influence with the great mass of mankind, must needs be alloyed with such an amount of error as to place it far below the standard attainable by the higher human capacities ... The religion of the many must necessarily be more incorrect than that of the refined and reflective few ..." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 224, teachings of the 14th Degree, Grand Elect, Perfect, and Sublime Mason]
4) "We do not undervalue the importance of any Truth. We utter no word that can be deemed irreverent by any one of any faith. We do not tell the Moslem that it is only important for him to believe that there is but one God, and wholly unessential whether Mahomet was His prophet. We do not tell the Hebrew that the Messiah whom he expects was born in Bethlehem nearly two thousand years ago; and that he is a heretic because he will not so believe. And as little do we tell the sincere Christian that Jesus of Nazareth was but a man like us, or His history but the unreal revival of an older legend. To do either is beyond our jurisdiction. Masonry, of no one age, belongs to all time; of no religion, it finds its great truths in all." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 524, teachings of the 26th Degree, Prince of Mercy or Scottish Trinitarian]
5) "Though Masonry is identical with the Ancient Mysteries, it is so in this qualified sense; that it presents but an imperfect image of their brilliancy." (In other words, while Masonry is identical in teaching to the Ancient Mysteries, it is not as good, not as brilliant.) ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 524, teachings of the 28th Degree, Knight of the Sun, or Prince Adept]
Thus, we have the testimony of Freemasonry that it is a religion, but it is not just any religion. Rather, Masonry purports to be the religion espoused by the Ancient Mysteries, especially their beloved Egypt. We have been reporting some of the teachings of another famous Freemason book, by Norman Frederick de Clifford, "Egypt The Cradle Of Ancient Masonry". In this book, we see the awe of the Mason toward Ancient Egypt, and we see it expressed on nearly every single page. The damning indictment of this awe toward the Ancient Mysteries' Religion of Egypt and of its culture, is that God, Jehovah, the God of the Holy Bible, condemned this Ancient Religion and its culture, and brought it into physical judgment, destroying it completely! You can read of much of this judgment in Exodus, as God was bringing the many plagues against Egypt, in order to deliver the Israelites from their bondage.
EXAMINATION OF PERTINENT PASSAGES, ABOVE
Before we go any further, let us examine some of the pertinent passages of the quotes, above, to see what they can tell us about the true nature of Freemasonry, especially as it relates to its claim to be consistent with Christianity.
Paragraph 2 -- Masonry claims that it is a universal, world-wide religion. In other words, Freemasonry is a One-World Religion, taking from each Ancient Mysteries the "truths" it finds valid. Also, note that this universal creed is declared to be the foundation of Freemasonry. We can only shake our heads and wonder how blatantly anti-Christian this type of foundation truly is, for our Lord declared that He was the only way to the Father (John 14:6), and the Apostle Paul wrote, under the power of the Holy Spirit, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ." [1 Cor 3:11]. Thus, by its own words, Freemasonry shows itself to be not Christian, but Pagan!
Also in Paragraph 2, we see the emphasis upon the good works which every Mason is expected to do in his lifetime, so as to earn his way up the ladder of perfection. But, in Christianity, we see that good works cannot earn a man anything [Eph 2:8-9], but that it is by the finished work of Jesus Christ that we are Justified before God [Romans 3:21-22; 1 Cor 6:11; 1 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 3:18].
Paragraph 3 -- When Freemasonry asserts that " Religion ... must needs be alloyed with such an amount of error ...", we instantly can see that they are justifying the practice of lying to their own adherents, until such time as they are "capable" of knowing the truth, and have attained to a status within Freemasonry that lifts them out of the "masses" spoken of in this paragraph. We have discovered that many Masons are never deemed "worthy" of learning the truth about their organization, even though they have been members for decades and have arisen to a very high degree. The great advantage for a senior Mason who has never learned the truth about Masonry is that he can be trusted to vehemently, and honestly, deny that there is anything wrong with the organization, and be very convincing in doing so. This technique is called, "Plausible Denial".
Of course, Masons who do know the truth are expected to lie to any person who is not a Mason, for they are but those despicable "masses", also known as the "profane".
Further, we can only shake our heads in dismay when we read, "Perfect truth is not attainable anywhere ..." God has continually stated that His Truth is Absolute and that not even one jot nor tittle shall ever disappear until all are fulfilled! Only the Holy Bible states that its Truth is Absolute, and only the Pagans assert that it is not! Therefore, we again can see that Freemasonry is not Christian, by any stretch of the imagination. [See Proverbs 30:5-6; John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."]
Paragraph 4 -- We again must shake our heads in horror as Freemasonry states that it accepts the "truth" found in any religion, because this Universalist Viewpoint implicitly states that all religions are considered to be equally valid. But, then, Freemasonry states that it will allow the practitioners of the various religions the freedom to believe in some particular doctrines peculiar to their religion, even though Freemasonry "knows" these doctrines to be false. In Christianity, Freemasons would never tell a Christian that His God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth was REALLY just a man like any other man, and that the sacred record of His ministry and His death and resurrection are just "revivals" of old ancient myths!! How much clearer must it be that Freemasonry is not Christian? In FREE02, we show that Freemason teaching on the Person and Ministry of Jesus Christ fulfills precisely the Biblical definition of Antichrist; we invite you to read this article in depth, as it will shed further light on this subject. But, from this statement, we can see that Freemasons do not view Jesus Christ to be THE God, come in human flesh, unique, and the only way to heaven. They know "better". They know that all these stories of Jesus are just revivals of ancient legends, but they are willing to allow us to keep all of our " misconceptions".
New Age author Peter Lemesurier, in his book, "The Armageddon Script", sheds some very interesting light on this subject of the "misconceptions" of the many peoples of the world. After stating the obvious fact that the many peoples of the world believe different doctrines on many subjects, and that many religions are looking for a Messiah to arise, Lemesurier offers an interesting solution. He states that Antichrist will claim to be the Messiah for which all the religions in the world are looking, and he then will create a worship of himself that will draw all the peoples of the world into a single worship! Of course, this plan exactly fulfills Bible prophecy.
Paragraph 5 -- " Masonry is identical with the Ancient Mysteries ..." Thus, we have Pike's own testimony that Freemasonry is identical to the Satanic Mysteries of the Babylonians, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgasites, the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, the Arvadites, Zemarites, and the Hamathites, all of which God totally destroyed in judgment because of their idolatry!! Freemasons either do not know this fact, or they don't care because they consider the God of the Holy Bible as no more than equal to the god of any other religion.
FREEMASON TEACHING ON DEATH AND AFTER LIFE
Now, let us examine Freemason teaching on Death and the After Life. This teaching is critical for any religion to answer, and answer properly, because the eternal destiny of each immortal soul entrusted to its care is dependent upon this question being answered correctly. Let us examine Freemasonry teaching on the destiny of the soul after death.
"The soul, with them, was not a mere conception or abstraction; but a reality including in itself life and thought ... It was material; but not brute, inert, inactive, lifeless, motionless, formless lightless matter. It was held to be active, reasoning, thinking; its natural home in the highest regions of the Universe, whence it descended to illuminate, give form ... and whither it unceasingly tends to reascend when and as soon as it can free itself from its connection with that matter. From that substance, the souls of men were formed, and by it alone, uniting with and organizing their bodies, men lived." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 398, teachings of the 24th Degree, Prince of the Tabernacle].
This teaching is a far cry from the Biblical revelation that God -- a Person, Self-Existent -- created the souls of man. Here, we have the Deity -- Universe -- somehow thinking and creating souls of men, and somehow causing them to be united with human bodies. Further, its description of what the soul of a man is, we get the sense that they believe the human soul to be a "Force", and God to be a "Force". [Pike is very clear in "Morals and Dogma" that their "God" is a Force -- pages 267, 531, 668, 705-7, 666-71]
This is Pagan doctrine! It is also the doctrine of Antichrist. "But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces:" [Daniel 11:38] New Age doctrine is quite plain that they worship a "god of forces".
This Masonic teaching that souls descend and reascend is simply and only the Pagan doctrine of Reincarnation. The Bible clearly teaches that man only lives once, followed by Divine Judgment See [Ecclesiastes 12:7; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:13]
Now, let us return to Masonic teaching:
"Hence sprung the doctrine of the transmigration of souls ... from the East and Mysteries .. the souls of the vicious dead passed into the bodies of those animals to whose nature their vices had most affinity, it was also taught that the soul could avoid these transmigrations, often successive and numerous, by the practice of virtue, which would acquit it of them, free it from the circle of successive generations, and restore it at once to its source. Hence nothing was so ardently prayed for by the Initiates, says Proclus, as this happy fortune, which, delivering them from the empire of Evil, would restore them to their true life, and conduct them to the place of final rest ... souls will not reach the term of their ills, until the revolutions of the world have restored them to their primitive condition, and purified them from the stains which they have contracted ... they could not be allowed to enter Heaven until they had distinguished themselves by the practice of virtue ... The Curds, the Chinese, the Kabbalists, all held the same doctrine." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 524, teachings of the 24th Degree, Prince of the Tabernacle]
These teachings are vehemently anti-Christian. But, more than that, they are New Age, as well as classic Hinduism and Buddhism. In my study of the Roman Catholic doctrine of Purgatory, I discovered that Purgatory came from this Ancient Pagan teaching described above, where souls have to be purified from the stains; however, Purgatory was invented as the place of purification rather than successive lifetimes [[The Encyclopedia Americana, International Version, Volume 23, "Purgatory"].
FREEMASON TEACHING ON HEAVEN
Now, let us look at how Freemasonry views Heaven and how to attain it. We will quote from another famous Freemason author, Norman Frederick de Clifford, in one of his books, "Egypt The Cradle Of Ancient Masonry, pages 224-5. You will note a Salvation by Works, teachings of Reincarnation and Karma, and the teaching that each person contains the god-head within him. All these teachings are virulently anti-Christian. [Emphasis mine]
"When the Neophyte first stands beneath its [Freemason's] overshadowing branches, in darkness visible, with ambition to know and understand the unknowable, his higher self will them prompt him to greater exertions. Clinging and climbing, he struggles upward and onward, grasping blindly for Light, until he stands upon the first of its multifarious branches ... He sees far above him ... and will begin to understand what the poet meant when he said:
"Heaven is not reached at a single bound;
But we build the ladder by which we rise
From the lowly earth to the vaulted skies,
And we mount to the summit round by round".
"It is so with the Neophyte. He will begin to realize that Heaven (Wisdom) is not gained by a single bound; but is only to be obtained by mounting step by step, or degree by degree ... He will realize there is no Death, for what we call Death is simply the disintegration of molecular forms, to be made manifest eventually in many others."
"This disintegration of the physical body of man, animals, plants, occurs as soon as the life forces or controlling soul departs ... Death is merely the Inn by the wayside, simply the bier upon which the body is laid. He will eventually realize that all men must pass through the gates of Death before they can enter on the road that leads to immortality. Death does not annihilate the true spiritual man, but just simply destroys the form or personality ... in which the individuality, or higher self, has been enabled to manifest itself on the physical plane."
"And in reaching Death he must thoroughly understand that he has suffered, and will become purified, so that the works of the Divine Essence might be exemplified in him. Through the glory of Life, Man must mourn, sorrow, suffer pain and humiliation to the personality, while He, the true man, will know full well it is simply a refining process to bring him out purified."
"When man stands erect in his God-hood before the Divine Glory of Light and Truth, with arms outstretched and head uplifted, in conscious knowledge of Divine Love, willing to accept his Karma, then the cross will fall behind him and he will realize that he stands before his Higher Self, the Divine Presence of the Supreme Architect, and positively know that he and his Father are One. He will thoroughly understand that Resignation is what brings him perfect peace and happiness, and unlocks the door leading to Immortal bliss."
Wow, what a revelation these few pages have been! We realize that Freemasonry is simply identical with the current New Age Religion/Movement. They teach that each person is Divine and each person must "realize" their godhood by working his way up the Ladder of Perfection, to one day stand in Immortal bliss, after numerous reincarnations. Notice they picture man as "standing erect" before God. What does the Bible say? It says the redeemed will "bow" down in worship and awe [Romans 14:11-12; Phillipians 2:10-11; Revelation 4:10]
But, did you see that Freemasonry teaches that Perfected Man and His Father are One? This is truly blasphemous, as it is a counterfeit of the statement Jesus Christ made on several occasions, that He and the Father are One. [John 10:30] This statement also reveals that they view themselves as Divine, as soon as they can go through the required number of reincarnations necessary to purify themselves to the point of becoming Perfected Man.
By now, it should be very clear that Freemasonry is simply and only revived Paganism. They are interested in promoting a One-World Religion that brings together all the religions of the world. This unification will be accomplished by uniting men and women on the basis of a common practice of common doctrines gleaned from Buddhism, Hinduism, the New Age, the Ancient Mysteries Religions of Egypt and Babylon.
We do not have Christianity here, my friends. We have the Unitarianism that will lead to the One-World religion of the Antichrist. Thus, we do see much praise of Freemasonry by key leaders of the New World Order, whose express objective is to unite the world so that the New Age Christ can arise and take control of the world, in complete fulfillment of Biblical prophecies concerning Antichrist. In fact, some of these New Age authors openly call him Antichrist.
Certainly, no one who reads this material with an open mind and open Bible can still believe Freemasonry is Christian. The evidence is overwhelming that Freemasonry is very much against Christianity, and only takes upon itself a thin mantle of "Christianity" so as to deceive.
By the way, did you ever see the name of Jesus Christ in these teachings of Freemasonry? Of course, you did not, and you will not. But, you can understand why Masons have been so very protective over the centuries of their "secret teachings", like these two books we have just quoted in this article. They know that, if trained Bible scholars could get a look at their teachings, they would expose Freemasonry for the Pagan fraud that it truly is. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually. If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
