A secret fraternal order of Free and Accepted Masons, spread by the British Empire, with actually 5 million members; 3 million in the USA, with 250,00 on the black "Prince Hall" Masonry (rejected by many white lodges).
- Some Masons define it as "a beautiful system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols"... also as "the realization of God by the practice of Brotherhood": To reach God by doing good works to your neighbor...
... It has been described as "the biggest, richest, most secret and most powerful private force in the world"... and certainly, "the most deceptive", both for the general public, and for the first 3 degrees of "initiates": Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason (the basic "Blue Lodge")... These Initiates are purposely deceived!, in believing they know every thing, while they don't know anything about the true Masonry... in the words of Albert Pike, whose book "Morals and Dogma" is the standard monitor of Masonry, and copies are often presented to the members, "the first three degrees are but the outer court of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally mislead by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understand them... it is well enough for the mass of those called Masons to imagine that all is contained in the Blue Degrees" ("Morals and Dogma", p.819).
Masonry: (form the french "mason", "stone masons"), started in the 13th century as a "Union of Workers" of the cathedral builders to help each other; it was the "working" or "operative masonry", meeting in "lodges".
Freemasonry: With the decline of cathedral building, some lodges of operative masons begun to accept honorary members to bolster their declining membership... and from here, "Freemasonry" was born, not to build "cathedrals", but to build "cathedrals of men", and "the cathedral of the whole world"... it is the "speculative masonry", adopting the rites and trappings of ancient religions, orders, sects, the occult, and chivalric brotherhoods.
-Officially, Freemasonry was born in 1717, when 4 Craft Lodges gathered at the Apple Tree Tavern in London, and set up a constitution for Free and Accepted Masons, written by Anderson... but they claim their roots can be traced to Egypt, Syria, Babylon... and the stonecutters of the Solomon Temple, specially "Hiram Abiff" (1R.7, 2Cr.2,4), a celebrated figure because of his death-defying refusal to reveal trade secrets to intruders... the "Jesus Christ" for many Masons... though it is "an irony", because the Temple of Solomon was not built with stones, but with wood, brought by another "Hiram", the King of Tyre (1R.5,9).
- Compass and square forming the triangle of God, with the letter "G" in the center, or the "eye" of God... or on top of an open Bible.
- They are the 3 indispensable jewels of a Lodge, representing "equality, liberty, and fraternity".
- The "compass" is the male element, represents solidarity, by making a circle; the "square", the female element, represents righteousness.
The 5 points of "fellowship":
- "Foot to foot": To go to help your brother.
- "Knee to knee": Pray for your brother.
- "Breast to breast": Keep the secrets.
- "Hand to back": Assist your fallen brother, and vindicate his character behind his back, as well as before his face.
- "Mouth to ear": Whisper good council.
There are mainly "3 Rites", with up to 1,000 degrees, superimposed on the 3 major divisions, varying from country to country, with no central authority (Encyclopedia Britannica).
-They meet in "Lodges",
of at least 7 members; each Lodge is the basic unit of Masonry, like a "parish", and supposedly no one outranks the Master of his Lodge, not even the Grand Master. A "Grand Lodge" in each state, with at least 4 Lodges, is like the "diocese". A "Grand Master" supposedly outranks any 33-degree Mason. In most countries, Grand Lodges are national bodies, but that has failed in the USA.
The basic "Blue Lodge":
Blue Lodges are those in which the first 3 degrees are conferred: Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. The 3 Degrees ware "blue" aprons, the official color of Freemasonry, and the only proper form to address the Master of the Lodge is "Worshipful Master".
1- The "Scottish Rite":
It has 33 degrees, they can talk about politics and religion in the Lodge, and the Lodges have a general organization, to act as a whole. Atheists are not admitted, as they were not admitted blacks, women, children, and poor people.
- Degree 18, of the "Rose Croix",
is "anti-Christian: The candidate has to pass a cross without Christ, through Calvary, Ascension, and Hell, and the INRI of the cross means "the whole nature renewed by fire".
- Only Christians can take degrees 18 to 33, and degree 30, "Knight of Kadosh" is the most anti-Catholic; "vengeance" is the motif of this degree.
- The first 3 degrees ware "blue aprons"; 4 to 18 "red aprons"; 19 to 30 "black aprons"; and 31 to 33 "white aprons".
- There are 2 Jurisdictions in the US:
... 1- The "Northern", north of Ohio, with headquarters in Lexington, Mass.;
... 2- The "Southern", with 35 states, and headquarters in Washington, D.C., the most openly anti-Catholic, founder of the Ku-Klux-Klan, and publisher of the "New Age" magazine.
2- The "York Rite" or "American Rite":
With 10 degrees, here they are not allowed to talk about politics and religion in the Lodges. The atheists are not admitted, and refuses admission to any but Christian Masons... women, children, blacks, and poor people are not admitted.
- In the 7th degree, the Royal Arch,
the name of the God of the Masons is discovered: "Jah-Bul-On", which stands for "Yahweh", the God of the Bible; "Baal", the god of the Assyrians, the false god of the Bible; and "On", the sun-god of the Egyptians, Osiris.
3- The "Grand Orient of France":
Here, the Atheists are admitted. It started when Napoleon tried to unite and control the different Lodges and Rites through his brother Joseph. He failed, but a brand new Rite was born to accommodate the Positivists and Atheists.
- The "Blacks",
were not allowed into Masonry, but later the "Prince Hall" for blacks was created, with 250,000 members. But even now U.S. Lodges reject the legitimacy of Black Masonic Lodges (Encyclopedia Britannica).
- "Allied organizations",
also were created to take care of the female relatives of Master Masons in the "Order of the Eastern Star"; for boys, the "Order of DeMolay" and the "Order of Builders". For girls, the "Order of the Job's Daughters" and the "Order of Rainbow"... plus the "Shriners", known for their charitable work...
Most Christian and Muslim leaders forbid Freemasonry... because it is a most deceptive secret society, as we shall see next:
Freemasons have been excommunicated from the Catholic Church by 8 Popes: In 1738 by Clement XII "In Eminenti", the first of 20 bulls against Freemasonry. Pius IX issued 6 bulls attacking Masonry. Leo XIII, in 1884, in "Humanum Genus", and endorsed the view that the Freemasons' "real supreme aim" is "to persecute Christianity with untamed hatred, and they will never rest until they see cast to the ground all religious institutions established by the Pope"... and the last one, John Paul II in 1983... you can not be a Catholic and a Mason!... if you want to be a Mason, you are automatically out of the Catholic Church, excommunicated!... these are the words issued by Cardinal Ratzinger, approved and ordered by John Paul II in Nov. 1983: "The Church's negative judgment in regard to Masonic associations remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. Catholics who enrol in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion. Local Ecclesiastical authorities do not have the faculty to pronounce a judgment on the nature of Masonic associations which may include a diminution of the above-mentioned judgment".
- "Baptist" leaders,
have referred to it as "an ungodly brotherhood of satanic darkness"; "there is an inherent incompatibility between Masonry and the Christian faith"; "there is a great danger that the Christian Mason may find himself compromising his allegiance to Jesus" (The Baptist Union of Scotland, 1965).
say "Masonry amounts to idolatry" (Missouri Synod, 1959).
"Masonry is a religious institution and as such is definitely anti-Christian (General Assembly, Rochester, 1942).
-"The Church of England":
"A number of very fundamental reasons to question the compatibility of Freemasonry with Christianity (General Synod, London, 1987... and several members of the committee were Masons!).
-"Russian Orthodox Church":
"Any Orthodox who joins Masonry losses all the right and privileges of his membership in the Church (Acker, "Strange Altars", pag.60).
"There is a great danger that the Christian who becomes a Freemason will find himself comprising his Christian beliefs. Methodists should not become Masons (General Assembly, London, 1985).
... However, most Masons are white Protestants, and some Catholics and Orthodox!.
BEAUTIFUL "TENETS"... "DECEPTION":
The apparent "tenets" of Masonry are beautiful, and many Masons are good, honest people, deceived in the surface of Brotherhood, specially the first three degrees Masons, most of them!... who, in the words of Pike, already quoted, "they are intentionally misled by false interpretations" (p.129)
- To be accepted as a Mason,
you have to believe in "the fatherhood of God, the brotherhood of men, and the immortality of the soul"... and this is beautiful, but like a chocolate with deadly poison inside, because it will end up robbing your Christian or Muslim or Jewish believes...
- The "3 tenets" of Masonry are:
1- "Brotherly love to the whole human species,
2- Relieve the distressed,
3- And truth as a divine attribute".
... this 3 tenets, plus "trust in God" are just beautiful... but many high degree Masons are guided by greed and self-interest, either social, political, or economic, making Masonry nothing less than the England's Mafia, in the words of Knight and Short ("The Brotherhood", "Inside the Brotherhood).
The "4 perfect points of entrance" are: "Gutta" (throat), "pectora" (chest), "manus" (hand), and "pedes" (feet), to teach care and circumspection of what you eat and drink, what you say and think in your heart, what you do, and where you go... beautiful!... but while many lodges are like clubs of brothers dedicated to do charity, some big high degree members are obstinate in destroying religions and entire economical and social structures of even entire nations...
The "4 cardinal virtues",
are also beautiful: Temperance, Fortitude, Prudence, and Justice"... but while many lodges breathe a spirit of general philanthropy, some high degree Masons have fed up the public, and the Grand Lodge biggest task today is to convince an increasingly cynic public that the Craft is neither a standing conspiracy nor a secret society, nor even a "society with secrets", but a harmless private club which benefits the entire community by inculcating lofty moral and spiritual values in its members"... but it is not that!...
... because Freemasonry can spiritually enrich a lifetime, but it can rob you of your Christian values... it can be conservative, but also a reactionaary force in politics, religion, or economics, a cover for a revolution, from left or right.
Symbolisms of Masonry:
Masonic candidate: Prepared for the oath.
- "blindfold" as a sign of "spiritual darkness".
- "cable tow" around his neck as a sign of slavery, submission, to the Master and the Lodge.
Grand hailing "sign of distress".
"Grips: Apprentice, Master Mason...
Deception on the "Initiation": (See picture, just before this)
A "blindfold", called "hoodwink" is always placed on the candidate, to mean "he is living in spiritual darkness", be it a Christian, or a Jew, heis living "in darkness, helplessness and ignorance. Having been wandering amid the errors and covered over with the pollutions of the outer and profane world"... so, a Christian or a Jew or a Muslim candidate for Mason "is living in spiritual darkness"!... and Christianity or Judaism or Islam are full of errors!... and a "profane world"!...
... And the candidate has to ware the "Cable Tow" around his neck as a sign of slavery, of submission, not Christ nor to the Church, but to the Master Mason and the Lodge... and he will be told and swear that "only the Lodge leads men into spiritual light"... because "he is iniquity coming to our door, seeking the new birth".
- And most initiates to Masonry do all of this without really knowing what they are doing or saying... but it is the first big step to strip a Christian from the "iniquity of Christianity"!.
Deception "on the Bible":
One of the 3 jewels of a Lodge is the "Sacred Book": It may be the Bible, the Koran, the Vedas, or the Gita... depending on the religion of the candidates... all of them are good!... but good for nothing!, because neither one is the "word of God" for Masonry... But they are good and useful for Masonry, because the candidate has to do the oath with his right hand on the Bible, for example, a book that means nothing for Masonry, but for the Christian candidate it is a very important oath made on the Bible!...
- Masonry says beautiful things about the "Bible", like, "the Holy Bible is given us the rule and guide for our faith and practice... the Bible is supreme... its truth is inwrought in the fiver of our being"...
... But this is the actual attitude of Masonry: "the Blue Lodge Masonry has nothing whatever to do with the Bible. It is not founded on the Bible. If it were, it would not be Masonry. The Jews, the Chinese, the Turks, each reject either the Old or New Testament, or both, and yet we see no good reason why they should not be made Masons" (Digest of Masonic Law, Pp.207-208).
The "god" of the Masons,
is not the "God" of the Bible or the Koran:
"To believe in God" is one of the greatest deceptions of Masonry... because for a Mason, the only "acting God" is the "Lodge" and the "Worshipful Master", like for Communists the real acting "god" is the State and the Premier...
... The primary allegiance and obedience of the Mason is to the "Worshipful Master", the only proper form to address him!... and through the Master to any other secret "higher Mason authority"... In the Lodge, the "Master" is "Worshiped", not God!... you can not even mention your God!.
... This is why Masonry is incompatible with Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, because their primary allegiance is to "God"... and even many local authorities are debating whether membership to the Craft is compatible with local government.
The "God" of the first 3 Degrees,
is "deistic", in the sense that he is a creator but can not be known... and this is why Pike can claim that "all specific conceptions of God are idolatrous, except Masonry's" ("Morals and Dogma", p.516)... so, the God of the Bible, or Koran, are "idolatrous".
... This "deistic God" is a boundless, eternal, universal, undenominational and international Divine Spirit... but "unapproachable"!... the only approachable "acting god" is the Worshipful Master. So, a Mason may believe in only one God, but Freemasonry welcomes all Masons Gods in the same Pantheon, as far as the allegiance in the Lodge is to the Worshipful Master, and any other God can not even be mentioned.
... In fact, any Lodge is a "federation of Gods and Religions"... and the greatest deception is that the individual Mason is "trusting in God", but not in his God, but in the Worshipful Master!... and the secret Mason authorities behind him!, because it is another deception to make believe that the local Lodge has the supreme authority, outranked by nobody, not even by the Grand Lodge.
- After the 3rd Degree,
Masonry accepts a particular form of pantheism, "Panentheism", where "all is god, and god is all", a pantheistic conception of deity which has passed from India through the secret doctrines of the Kabbalah into Freemasonry and the actual New Age Movement. The so called "Grand Architect of the Universe" (G.A.O.T.U.), after the 3rd degree is not "a person"... "it" is "nature", a "force", "energy"... a "stone", a "star", "you", "I"... it is "it", not "he"... a most cunning way to deceive the first 3 Degrees, most of the Masons!...
... And this is why Masonry claims that God is in every Mason... but it is in the same sense that God is in any dog or any stone...
- The Craft wants people to belive that it opens the door to a universal brotherhood of all faiths, but any knowledgeable believer will recognize that Masonry denies his God and beliefs.
... Here, Masonry links cults and religions from all ages: Egypt, Kabbalah, the Occult, Spiritism, Alchemy (the founder, Hermes, is suppossed to be one of the founders of Freemasonry)... and even Satanism: Albert Pike is a high regarded Mason and a Satanist, who claims that "Masonic religion should be maintained in the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine... the true religion is Satanism... Lucifer is the God of Light and the God of Good, strugling for humanity against Adonay, the God of the Jews and Christians, the God of Darkness and Evil".
- A great problem,
for the honest Masons of the first 3 Degrees, for most Masons, is that they participaate in rituals with occult significance, whose symbolism is undisclosed to them.
- As a whole,
the god of the Masons is "relativistic", because it can't be known, but it is good to use as it fits!, and only the Masonic symbolism, which is ambiguous and left to the interpretation of the individual, is adapted to the truth of what god is.
-The "God" of the Bible,
is not the "god" of Masonry:
For the Craft, Jesus Christ is not God,
or he is god as much as you and I are gods, or a stone is god. Masonry completely excludes all particular biblical teachings about Christ such as His incarnation, redemptive mission, death, and resurrection. In fact, no biblical truth about Jesus Christ is affirmed by Masonry.
- "God the Father",
of the Bible, is not the "Almighty Father of the Universe" of the Masonry prayers: God the Father is a "person", the Almighty of the Masons "is not a person" after the third degree, it is "energy", "nature"... it is not "he", it is "it"...
... So, "the oaths",
on the Bible, or on the Koran, or on the Vedas, are mockery and profanation of these scriptures, because men swear upon their sacred scriptures to obey Masonic religious beliefs that deny and distort what their sacred scriptures really teach.
- The capital "G",
of the emblem, stands for "God" or "Grand Architect of the Universe"... but also stands for "Geometry, Gnosis, Generation", the real divine trinity of the Masons.
- The "Hell",
of the Bible and Koran is never ever mentioned in the doctrines or rituals of Masonry.
is mentioned as "the perfect and glorious Lodge above where the Supreme Architect of the Universe presides"... but that "Lodge above" is not the Heaven of the Bible or Koran, because for Masonry "god" is not a person, and the "Lodge above" is neither a place nor a estate, it is to be "in god" like a stone is... it is just a deception to face death!... because "after death", every soul becomes god, like a drop of water in the ocean, "without being a person"...
- So, the 2 tenets of Masonry, "believe in God, and in the immortality of the soul", are the greatest deceptions of Masonry, because "God" is not a person, and the "soul" is not what we think, but it is like the "soul" of a star, or a bird... and this is why the third great Rite of Masonry, the "Grand Orient of France" admits atheists as Masons, and they are perfect Masons, without believing in God or in the immortality of the soul.
Deception "on religion"...
... the "aim of Masonry":
A great false and deceptive claim of Masonry is to say that "it is not a religion nor a substitute for religion".
- Masonry is a religion,
a "naturalistic religion"... and still more, Masonry teaches in the higher degrees, that "it alone is the only one true religion of all mankind", aiming to unite all religions and will eventually unite the world in brotherhood... it is the same aim that the one of the New Age Movement... a new "World Order"!.
... Its real aim is to become Christianity without Christ, Judaism without the Law, Islam without the Prophet, Buddhism without Buddha...
- It is a "Religion of Naturalism",
where "human reason" becomes the only guide to religious belief. God can not teach anything, He can not reveal Himself... the Bible is good as far as the moral doctrines is concern, but it is nothing as far as the revelations that God has made of Himself... Masonry denies that anything has been taught by God... the real God!...
... And this is why Masonry claims, "Creeds arise, have their day and pass, but Masonry remains, because it is built on the rock of reason, not on the shifting sands of superstition"... all religions are "superstition", including Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists... all except Masonry, the only one true religion!...
- Masonry inculcates the practice of virtue, but supplies no scheme of redemption of sin!... - Masonry, without "revelation" of God, with only "reason", knows very little about the real "God", and about the real eternal "soul", and about the real eternal "Heaven" or "Hell"...
Get out of Masonry!...
it may ruin your only life on earth, and it may bring you to the eternal Hell, forgotten by Masonry... but it is there!...
all mankind into its doctrines is the main aim of Masonry... but Masonry can not even unite itself!... because power and honor and riches are the main goals of many Massons... there is a huge rivalry among their high level members to be the most honored, the most powerful... in the words of Pike, the most eminent American Freemason philosopher, he wrote an entire article on "The Evil Consequences of Schisms and Disputes for Power in Masonry, and of Jealousies and Dissensions Between Masonic Rites", where he talks about "the angry disputes which rend the bosom of the Order, accompanied with bitter words, harsh epithets and loud denunciations, that give the lie to the combatants' claim of brotherhood"... no, the brotherhood of Masonry is not a peaceful lake!... ("Little Masonic Library", 5:102-103)...
... Masons in today's Lodge seem unable to agree even on major issues, such as "who God is", and weather or not He is relevant... and, in fact, among the most rancorous disputes the world has ever witnessed are those that raged among Masons during the last 200 years over questions of minor or no importance... just for the sake of power and honor and riches!... the principal aims of many Masons.
... A huge problem of "Masonic Religion" is that it is an amalgam of many religions from Egypt, Persia, Babylon, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Spiritism, Occultism, Witchcraft, Kabbalah... and anything can be added or argued...
Deception "on the oaths"... the "secrecy":
"Signs" of the "First 3 Degrees"
1- Entered Apprentice: Cut my throat and tongue.
2- Fellow Craft: Cut open my chest, and put my heart and lungs on my left shoulder.
3- Master Mason: Put my bowels out.
The "oaths" are most deceptive, ridiculous, disproportionate, and, especially, they make the Mason to violate and deny his Christian or Muslim faith.
We already commented on how the "oaths" on the Bible or Koran are a mockery and profanation of these scriptures, because men swear upon their sacred scriptures to obey Masonic religious beliefs that deny and distort what their sacred scriptures teach (see ""Deception on the Initiation").
In the First Degree of "Apprentice",
he swears, with his hand on the Bible, "I (name), in the presence of Almighty God, most solemnly promise and swear that I will always hail, ever conceal, and never reveal any of the arts, parts of points of the hidden mysteries of Freemasonry... binding myself under the penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out, and my body buried in the rough sands of the see..." (Duncan's Ritual, pp. 34-35).
The Second Degree, "Fellow Craft",
swears on the Bible, in the presence of Almighty God, "under the penalty than of having my breast open... and my heart and lungs thrown over my left shoulder... so help me God".
The Third Degree, of "Master Mason", swears "under the penalty than that of having my body severed in two, my bowels taken from thence and burn to ashes... so help me God".
- All these "penalties" are exaggerated... just for revealing a secret grip, or a lodge rite, or a password like "Boaz" or "Tubal Cain"... what will you do to anyone who commits murder, or rape?... they argue that they are only "symbolic", and consequently a "sacrilege" to swear solemnly under God something symbolic... but many Masons take them literally and fear the consequences of them...
... and the fact is that many Masons have been found with their throats cut, their tongue out, their chest open... because, they say, it is up to God to inflict the penalties, but apparently there are men who do it for God!.
- The main deception is that with these oaths you swear to God to uphold Masonry, and that can only be done by sacrificing your Christian or Jewish or Muslim commitment.
- Candidate, takes the oath of a Master Mason.
- The Apron: A badge of innocence, the bond of friendship, a symbol of profound change of attitude towards work and society, an emblem of very great significance for a Mason.
Most men are lured into Masonry by promises of brotherhood, charity, and advancement in employment or public life... but this is another big deception!:
- Brotherhood and employment are nice tools used to enslave Masons into Masonry... when you don't follow the rules of the Master, even your throat is going to be cut!... and that's part of brotherhood and a better job!.
- Some Masons feel at home in the Lodge, as a club where old men are treated with a respect they no longer receive from the world at large, and where younger men can make friends from all ways of life, even wearing "an apron" in the lodge, when they would not be seen dead in one at home!... for others, it is a staggeringly boring waste of time with so many weird rituals and bloodcurdling oaths, and quit as soon as they find a diplomatic excuse...
- For some it is a rich spiritual life, for most it is a place to find a job, or a cover for revolutionary work in their selfish political, social, economic, or religious ambitions, either in their local confines or at the national or world level...
Some of the fruits of Masonry are:
- The famous "Masonic Charities":
They claim about \\$300 millions a year to hospitals and other institutions, which is good but not that much, considering that if every Mason contributes just \\$5 per week, they can collect $1,300 millions per year... they are a good way to deceive the outsiders, like its secrecy, it is often a cloak to hide its real teachings and goals, and a good way to obtain propaganda... and even the so called "charity" is a way to get money for the Order: In 1985, "Circuses" of the Shriners generated \\$23 million, and only 2% went to medical care of children. In 1984, out of \\$17 million only 1% went to charity, the rest for the Order! (Orlando Sentinel, June 29, 1986).
- "Famous Masons",
have made important contributions to the world in all fields of life: Politics, soldiers, writers, actors, composers, painters, scientists... as we comment in "Famous Masons"
- The "Ku-Klux-Klan",
was founded by a Mason, Nathan Bedford Forrest, and revitalized in 1915 by another Mason, William Simmons (see "Ku Klux Klan").
- Influence in the "French Revolution",
with the triple motto of Masonry, "liberty, equality, and fraternity", and a Mason, Joseph Guillotine, invented the "guillotine" to cut the throat of thousands for the crime of just being Christians...
Blacks, women, and the poor, are not admitted to the Lodge... U.S. lodges even now reject the legitimacy of Negro Masonic Lodges, the Prince Hall lodges (Encyclopedia Britannica).
- The "New Age Movement",
prefigured in the "New Age Magazine" of the Southern Jurisdiction of the US, and used by Masonry to destroy religions.
- "Against Catholics":
This Southern Jurisdiction of the US has fought for years all the goals of Catholics, including their right to have private Catholic Schools.
- The "Vatican Scandal",
of 1976, when 3 Masons, Sindona, Calvi, and Gelli, infiltrated the Vatican and almost bankrupted it, influencing in the Vatican Treasure through the Cardinals Casaroli (Vatican foreign minister), Poletti (Vicar of Rome), Villot (Secretary of State), and Marcinkus (head of IOR).
- Equality, liberty, and fraternity",
is the triple motto of Masonry that is not even uphold in the Lodge, where there are many "degrees" with different honors and powers, no equality. Each member has to use the color of the apron of his degree, there is not liberty. And fraternity, you can have it as far as you are a slave of the Master and of the Lodge, but forget it if you fail one the rules or commands!.
- "Several Books",
well documented, report incredible acts of Masonry to destroy private citizens, and entire cities and nations, infiltrating the Police, the Judiciary, the Politics, the Economy, the Religions... I recommend "The Brotherhood" by Stephen Knight, and "Inside The Brotherhood" by Martin Short.
- The "Occult" and even "Satanism",
is practiced by many Masons: Pike and Waite were leading Masons and both leading occultists... many rites of the Craft are taking from the Occult, but hiding its significance to the first three Degrees... Albert Pike served as sovereign grand inspector of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite for many years, is considered American Freemasonry's most eminent philosopher, and he is a "Satanist"! (see "The God of the Masons")
Masonry has a beautiful code of morality good enough to deceive the most intelligent... it is like a chocolate with deathly poison inside... I agree with Wagner, that the ethics of Masonry, when the veil is removed, is decidedly immoral and subversive of the divine order. If the principles of Masonry were to animate mankind today, society again would wallow in the styles of paganism (Wagner, Freemasonry, pp.482-483)...
... And I am not talking about some Masons who are good, honest, deceived people, but about Masonry with so bad morality that most of its open claims are "false claims": It is a religion, a substitute for religion; it dishonors the Bible and the Koran; it is not a merely fraternal brotherhood; it has many rites of the occult...
