Methodists used to have the 'Order of Knights' and last I heard,
a few decades back, it still existed.
- Knights of the East and West
- Knights of the cross of Babylon
- Knights Templar (of course)
- Knights Kadosh
10 Questions for a Mason who Thinks He is Christian
Secret Sins By William Schnoebelen
1. If Masonry is not a religion, why does it have all the trappings of
Though Masons are told it is not a religion, that claim does not bear
close scrutiny. By any dictionary definition, Freemasonry has all the
distinctive qualities of a religion. It demands a belief in a Supreme Being
as a requirement for membership. It also has a chaplain, rituals of
initiation, prayers and funeral services and teaches a plan of salvation. It
also has an organized body of philosophical and ethical teachings. Thus,
Masonry is indeed a religion.
2. If it is a religion, which one is it?
First in concern, it is not the Christian religion. Masonic
authorities openly deny it is Christianity, (1) and this is further
evidenced by the fact that the Lord Jesus Christ is accorded no special
worship in the Lodge. He is presented as just one of many great sages and no
Mason is allowed to present Jesus to fellow Lodge members as Almighty God in
the flesh (1Timothy 3:15, John 1:14) or to witness Jesus to unsaved fellow
Masons. Beyond that, Masonry is alternately depicted (2) as a kind of
universalistic religion "upon which all men can agree." Universalism is a
theological doctrine holding that eventually all people will be saved.
This categorically means it cannot be Christian, for Jesus taught that
no one could be saved except through Him (John 14:6). The other face of
Masonry, seen in the writings of its greatest teachers (Pike, Mackey, Hall,
etc.). These men taught is that it is a modern revival of "ancient mystery
religions" (the worship of Baal) and that its core philosophy is Kabbalism,
a system of post-exilic Jewish occultism.(3) Stripped of all the verbiage,
this means that the philosophical core and pedigree of modern Freemasonry is
basically akin to that of witchcraft. (Both are called "the Craft").
3. Can a professed Christian be a part of a non-Christian religion?
Hopefully, this answer is self-evident. Jesus Himself warned that no
one can serve two masters (Matthew 6:24). Yet the Christian Mason is
attempting to serve his true Master, Jesus; and also the "Worshipful Master"
of the Lodge (Matthew 23:10). The Bible's message is clear. God does not
want his people trying to worship two different gods at the same time
(Exodus 20:3, 1 Kings 18:22). You cannot mingle Masonry and Christianity,
anymore than you could be a Christian Muslim or a Christian Hindu. (4) How
can you, as a follower of Jesus, be part of an institution that demands that
you break God's commandments?
Doubtless this question may shock most Masons. However, in several
obvious places, Masons are required to break the commandments of Jesus or
His Father. For example, Masons are required to swear blood oaths on the
Bible in the name of God, yet Jesus commanded His disciples never to swear
oaths (Matthew 5:34-37) and this command was repeated by James (James 5:12).
Should the Mason claim that the oaths are only "in fun" and not to be taken
seriously, then he has taken the name of the Lord in vain, another
commandment broken (Exodus 20:7). If he says the oaths are serious, then he
has violated the commandment which forbids murder by consenting with an oath
to his own murder (Exodus 20:13). Other commandments broken will be
5. How can you ignore 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 by being "bound" to
countless nonbelievers and occultists who are Masons?
Though not widely known, some of the premiere witches and occultists
of this century were prominent Freemasons-both here and in England.(4) Their
names would include Aleister Crowley, Gerald Gardner and Alex Sanders.
Additionally, there are thousands of Masons of various other non-Christian
faiths (Judaism, Islam, etc.). Contrary to the command of 2 Corinthians 6
forbidding us to be "unequally yoked" to unbelievers, the Mason is bound by
a spiritual "tie" (5) to all other Masons, Christian or not. This is
mentioned in the first degree work in the context of removing the cabletow
from about the Initiate's neck. This bond is sealed with an oath in the name
of God. This is a clear violation of this commandment.
6. How can you be a part of an institution that makes you deny Jesus
within the First Degree?
The Bible teaches that when a person genuinely becomes Born Again, the
Lord Jesus comes in and takes residence within us. Bear this precious truth
in mind as you are reminded of this: at the door of the Lodge as an Entered
Apprentice candidate, the initiate is made to knock three times on the door
and then say in response to the challenge from within:
"Mr.______, who has long been in darkness now seeks to be brought to
light and receive a part in the rights and benefits of this worshipful
Lodge, erected to God and dedicated to the Holy Saints John as all brothers
and fellows have done before him." (6)
How can a genuine Christian agree that he has "long been in darkness"
when he has the Light of the World within him? How can he think that Masonry
can add anything to the light of Christ in whom are "hid all the treasures
of wisdom and knowledge" (Colossians 2:3) and in whom "all fullness dwells"
(Colossians 1:19)? Is this not denying Christ?
7. How can you be a part of an institution that does not acknowledge
Jesus as God and yet exalts a minor Bible character to be "the greatest
Mason, if not the greatest man, who ever lived"?
Freemasonry, as a matter of official policy, does not acknowledge the
unique claims of Jesus.(7) This would destroy their universalistic religion
which claims that all religionists are welcome at the altar of Masonry.
However, the Bible makes clear that Jesus' name is above every other name
(Philippians 2:9, Ephesians 1:21) and that without confessing Him as Lord no
one can be saved (John 14:6, Romans 10:9-13). Jesus Himself states that all
other religious leaders who came before him (Buddha, Zoroaster, etc.) were
"thieves and robbers." (John 10:8)
The Bible points to Jesus Christ! It is supposed to be one of the
"three great lights" of Masonry and the "rule and guide of our [the Masons']
faith" Yet this same Bible, which so lifts up the name of Jesus, barely
mentions the central figure of Masonic myth, Hiram Abiff. This obscure
craftsman, who is barely mentioned in the context of the building of
temple, is treated like a god-figure in Masonry. He is lionized above all
other men in the Old Testament and even made to be as great-or greater-than
Jesus. His murder by three ruffians before he could finish the work on the
temple is the center of the Masonic "mystery," and yet from the Bible's
perspective, it is a lie. The Bible clearly states that Hiram "made an end
of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of the Lord."
(1 Kings 7:40)
8. How can you be a part of an institution that will not acknowledge
that Jesus rose from the dead and which conducts blasphemous parodies of the
Albert Pike, Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite, wrote that Jesus'
bodily remains have now been reduced to dust motes in the earth that we eat
as they have been absorbed into the earth through the centuries. (8) The
Scottish rite ritual, the "Feast of the Paschal Lamb" also refuses to
acknowledge that Jesus rose from the dead. (9)
In the York Rite, a blasphemous parody of the Lord's Supper is
conducted as part of the Knight Templar degree in which the candidate is
made to stand before a sinister triangular table draped in black velvet and
illuminated by candles. In the center is a Bible atop which rests a human
skull. From this skull, the candidate takes "communion," swearing most
solemnly that if he ever breaks his oath, all his own sins and the sins of
the man from whose skull he is drinking will come back on his own head. (10)
Talk about crucifying the Son of God afresh and bringing Him to an open
shame (Hebrews 10:28-29)!
9. How can you be a part of an institution whose teachers proclaim
that it is descended from a fertility cult and that the god of Freemasonry
is the male reproductive organ?
Though this would shock most Masons, the fact is that the greatest
teachers of Masonry make it clear that the central symbol of deity in the
Lodge is the phallus or penis. (11) This is why so many Masonic memorials
(tombstones or the Washington monument) are, in fact, phallic symbols. This
is why the male genitals are "veiled" by the Masonic apron, just like a veil
covered the Holy of Holies in Solomon's temple. This is what the Letter G
stands for in Masonry; not for God or "Geometry" as the Fellowcraft is told
in the second degree lecture, but rather for the power of "Generativity" or
10. How many things have to be sinful about an institution before you,
as a Christian, need to separate yourself completely from it?
My brothers, this is but a brief list of things that most Masons
either know, or could readily find out. It is just that most Masons have
never bothered to put these things together because they were told that
Masonry was noble. Now you know these things, and how contrary they are to
the Bible. The answer to this question ought to be: only one! If even one of
these questions raises a valid secret sin within the Lodge, then that should
be reason enough to quit. This is just a men's club! Is it worth destroying
your testimony and your power as a Christian man? You need to get on your
knees right now and ask the Lord to forgive you for your involvement in the
Lodge and renounce it forever as a sin. Then you need to write a letter
requesting a demit from the Lodge. If you write to us, we can even provide
you with a sample letter. You must not delay. Remember Paul's words: "What
fellowship hath light with darkness?"

Can anyone post any proof about the ancient masonic history ?
My search of Internet didn't produce any valid results.
As all masons are ignorant they should learn and acquire some knowledge
as they have none.
Freemasons claim that they are masons (stonebuilders).
I am still waiting to meet one who is able to build anything using stones.
Let me know just one name of living Freemason who was involved in
building anything and that is documented (churches or other significant
building only counts).
How many old churches or historic building are actually build by freemasons?
There is no any masonic sign anywhere on any significant building
anywhere in the world !!!
They are cheat and liars.
They sat they accept members who believe in some kind of God because they
calculate it would be easier to convert someone who believe in something
which can not be seen. They exploit common trust and religious believes
of naive or stupid people to produce liars, conspirators and murderers
and rule the world through network of corrupted politicians, policemen,
army officers, lawyers and politicians. Members of those professions
promise to obey the law of the country but they do not as masonic rules
prevent them of being loyal citizens as they have to obey only orders
from other freemasons.
Country which tolerate freemasons to practice their pagan rituals is not
a democratic country.
Religion which tolerate freemasons to practice their pagan rituals is not
a religion but a satanic cult as freemasons worship Lucifer.
If I say that I am a doctor or priest, I may be arrested.
All freemasons should be treated the same - please go to Police and
request arrest of liars.
Everyone knows that they are "invented" in 18th Century.
Masons even claim that they built pyramids, although it's hard to find
Mason capable of building a small home barbeque from few bricks.
They invented secrets because they know they are cheat.
It is hard to believe that in 21st Century some idiots believe in
freemasonism and this is tolerated in our modern society.
**** this is posted to help existing freemasons to save their soul. This
is your last chance to rebuke satanism and find real God.
