Christianity vs. Freemasonry

Updated: Jul 15, 2021

Freemasonry is one of the oldest secret societies in the world. There is quite a bit of documented history going back for hundreds of years. There is additional speculated documented history going back for thousands of years. Freemasons have had an influence in nearly every land around the globe, even to this day. Yet, very little is know about them to the general public aside from the surface appearance and harmless reputation they like to keep protected. Masons are heavily promoted as the founders of our nation, and keepers of America's most guarded secrets and treasures. These secrets and treasures are said to be too important for the general public to know, understand, or claim. Yet, at the same time it's secrets are believed to be crucial to the foundation of our nation. This was portrayed quite well in the movie series "National Treasure" starring Nicholas Cage in 2004, which championed Freemasonry for it's patriotism and protection of our nation's secrets. There are many extensions of Freemasonry, such as the Shriners, who are also viewed favorably in their communities for their children's hospitals.

This all seems wonderful and great from what we are told, but who, and what, are these organizations really? Are they Godly men, simply in an ancient fraternity, who are in the background protecting our best interests? Are they Christians who are simply trying to join an innocent brotherhood that openly help their communities? Are masons what they truly appear on the surface?

There is a reason why they have earned the description of a "secret society". What is the secret? In my years of study, biblical and worldly, I have come across an extremely true statement that I will never forget, which is, "Nothing good is done in secret." That very short, but profound, statement has held true to form for me in all of my investigations. I have yet to find the answer, or part of the answer, to a secret, and find it was positive or beneficial; being better off unknown. Instead, answers have always turned up to be something rather damaging, or even sinister. Thus it always makes sense why it was kept secret in the first place. The additional problem with secrets is that you often have to lie to keep them secret, avoiding people from asking too many questions. But by asking questions, and training our eyes to see, we can get a rather solid picture of the truth. So the REAL question is, "Should a Christian be a Freemason?"

"Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing."

- John 18:20 KJV

"And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved."

- John 3:19-20 KJV

To understand what the secrets are of Freemasonry, we really need to get to the core of it's teachings, symbolism, and rituals. There are 33 degrees in the Masonic hierarchy, each level attained is first initiated by bizarre affirmations and questionable rituals. As you climb the ladder, you are trusted with more of the "secret". By the time you get to 30th degree on up, most start to get a clear picture of what the roll of Freemasonry is and its "secret". New recruits often have no clue what they are in for. However, the Entered Apprentice (EA) eerie oath should already be a giveaway to anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear. The EA is required to repeat this oath to join the ranks:

"All this I most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear, with a firm and steadfast resolution to perform the same... binding myself under no less penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea, at low-water mark, where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours, should I ever knowingly violate this my Entered Apprentice obligation. So help me god and keep me steadfast in the due performance of the same."

- Malcolm Duncan, "Duncan's Masonic Ritual and Monitor, pg. 34-35

As you increase in degrees, you eventually will be initiated by way of a blindfold, while in your underwear in front of the standing members, and drinking out of a human skull! And if you have completed this, you are soon recommended to further your knowledge by reading through a book titled “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry” written by Albert Pike. Albert Pike (1809-1891) is considered to be the father of “modern” Freemasonry, or even often called the “Plato of Freemasonry”. Pike was an American attorney, soldier, writer, and the highest degree Freemason in his time. In Pike’s book, written in 1871, he clearly explains the doctrine of Freemasonry as being an actual "religion".

“Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion and its teachings are instructions in religion.

“It is the universal, eternal, immutable religion.

“That rite raises the corner of the veil…for there it declares that Masonry is a worship.

- Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, pgs. 213 & 219

If Freemasonry is a religion with worship, who, or what, are you worshiping? Is it the God of the bible? If not, can a Christian join and worship Jesus Christ and whatever the Freemason's worship at the same time? I have a feeling that God made this answer pretty clear in scripture.

"Thou shalt have no other gods before me."

- Exodus 20:3 KJV

"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other... "

- Luke 16:13 KJV

Recorded by A.C. De La Rive, in a French title named "La Femme et L’enfant dans La Franc-Maconnerie Universelle" (translated - "Woman and Child in Universal Freemasonry"), on pages 588-89, Albert Pike is quoted stating,

“That which we must say to the crowd is, we worship a god, but it is the god one adores without superstition. To you sovereign grand inspector general, we say this and you may repeat it to the brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees - the Masonic religion should be by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine."

”If lucifer were not god, would Adonai (the God of the Christians) whose deeds prove cruelty, perfidy and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonai and His priests, calumniate Him?"

"Yes, lucifer is god, and unfortunately Adonai [the God of the Christians] is also God, for the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two gods. Darkness being necessary for light to serve as its foil, as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive."

"... the true and pure philosophical religion is the belief in lucifer, the equal of Adonai, but lucifer, god of light and god of good, is struggling for humanity against Adonai, the god of darkness and evil”

- A.C. De La Rive, La Femme et L’enfant dans La Franc-Maconnerie Universelle, pgs. 588-89

Pike states that Lucifer is the "god of light", but isn't Jesus Christ the light of the world?

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

- John 8:12 KJV

The "modern father" of Freemasonry himself states that Lucifer is their "good" God, and Adonai (The Christian God of the bible) is the god of "darkness and evil"! If you noticed, Albert Pike also wrote “we say this and you may repeat it to the brethren of the32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees…” This makes it clear that you are in the dark to the true nature of this religion until you are in the higher ranks.

It also matters which masonic lodge you hold your membership at. Smaller lodges in tiny towns seem to never know the big picture, even at the higher ranks, whereas the higher degrees in the bigger city lodges know exactly what they are a part of.

To continue on, there are many symbols right in plain sight that expose their worship if you know what to look for. The upside-down star, the pentagram, I think is the most recognizable.

This symbol is the universal symbol to identify satanic worship, Luciferianism, witchcraft, the Satanic Church, the Satanic Bible, etc. Most people more readily recognize it with the “Goat of Mendez” in the middle of it as pictured.

Masons are cleverly blinded, led to believe the inverted pentagrams on their masonic lodges represents a favorable symbol called the "Eastern Star".

The Order of the Eastern Star, the masonic group affiliated with this symbol, are told that this symbol represents the star of Bethlehem and the heroes in the Christian bible. Scripture does mention, "...his star in the east..." (Mat 2:2), yet, the actual term “eastern star” has its roots in occultism and pagan worship dating back to Babylon. The term "eastern star" is never used in scripture.

Below is a picture inside the satanic "Church of Lucifer” in Columbia, South America. The same symbol worn around the neck of a devil and painted into the floor.

Another symbol Masons associate with is the pyramid, usually with a displaced capstone, containing the “all-seeing eye”. This symbol has been a universal symbol of enlightenment for many cults, including the Illuminati and the satanic church, for generations. Cultists believe that Lucifer, “the light barer”, will give them secret spiritual knowledge, allowing people to eventually become gods themselves. I personally believe it simply displays that Satan and his demons have their eye on the world. Here is a picture showing the pyramid on the back of our one-dollar bill. Note: If you have ever wondered what the Latin writing around the bill translates to, it reads

“This Year Begins the New World Order (or New Order of the Ages) 1776”

The displaced capstone on the top of the pyramid symbolizes that Lucifer has not yet established his complete rule over the earth. This will happen during the biblically prophesied New World Order, coming very soon to a city near you.

Here we see the very same thing again in the Church of Lucifer in Columbia. Notice also the hidden 666 symbols and the serpents meant to represent Satan in the Garden of Eden.

Here is a photo of the infamous Satanist Alister Crowley wearing a hat with the same symbol, and the occult logo associated with his satanic practices.

Now, here is a symbol above the door going into a Masonic lodge.

Here is a graphic showing the structure of Freemasonry.

Or how about common graphics in Freemason literature.

Here is a Masonic monument standing in Eliat, Israel.

Notice the all-seeing eye of Lucifer on the top of the pyramid?

This is Winchester Hiram 21 Masonic Lodge located in Winchester, VA. Notice the all-seeing eye again above the door watching you as you go into the building.

Lastly, I want to quickly bring up the symbol of the Shriners and its meaning as well. This auxiliary group of the Freemasons have a logo that is not without it's own secret esoteric meaning. The Shriner's hat, called a Fez, has a symbol that displays an Islamic scimitar sword resting above a turned crescent moon and star.

A former 9 year, 32nd degree Freemason, from Wisconsin, now born again by faith in Jesus Christ, states

"Aside from its witchcraft associations, the crescent is the sacred symbol of Islam, a false religion and one of the most serious rivals to Christianity! The scimitar is a sword developed by the Islamic armies. It spreads the 'gospel' of Islam, that 'There is no god but Allah, and Muhammed is his prophet. Instead of the usual preaching techniques, the Muslims had a unique approach. It was called jihad, or 'Holy War.' the scimitar is the ultimate symbol of the jihad. This sword was used to cut off the heads of those who refused to bow down to Allah, including millions of Christians over the centuries."

- William Schnoebelen, Masonry Beyond the Light, pg. 119-20

The turned crescent is really to represent the neck of a Christian who refuses to convert to Islam; basically depicting the chopping off of a Christian head!

Here, a Shriner even admits he is a Christian, but also states that he is Lucifer.

I would highly recommend the book Masonry: Beyond the Light by William Schnoebelen. Read it and share it with your masonic friends in your church.

Please understand and learn, this is how the occult world operates. You are typically given harmless explanations, while the truth is actually being hidden from you. The occult world uses symbols, graphics, numbers, and even hand gestures in plain sight to communicate with each other and give recognition to who they serve. Unless you are "in the know", you are told an innocent and disarming fabrication for these things so that no one will raise eyebrows. To be totally blunt, you are flat out told lies! You are deceived! And while people may say they are not deceived, the very idea of being deceived is making someone believe they are NOT deceived; think about that...

So, is it ok for a Christian to be a Freemason? I'm sure you can probably answer that at this point.
