Why No Christian Should Be A Freemason
By David J. Stewart
Well for starters, Freemasonry membership requires an OATH that denies Jesus! Masons are required to address their lodge's god, a false god, as The Great Architect. Members are strictly forbidden from promoting the name of Jesus above other gods. This "Great Architect" is without a doubt, Satan. At the heart of Freemasonry is the unbiblical idea that all religions worship the same god, i.e., The Great Architect of the Universe. Christians are subtly lured into the lodge under the pretense of good intentions. Freemason leaders claim that god is so deep, omnipotent, and unsearchable that they dare not DEFINE who He is; hence, they prefer to simply address Him as "The Great Architect" instead. The major flaw with such erroneous thinking is that it is a total denial of the Word of God. The Bible clearly defines who God is--Jesus Christ!
Freemasonry Forbids Promoting Jesus Over Other gods!
The Bible clearly defines who God is--Jesus Christ! Colossians 2:9 tells us that the fulness of the GODHEAD dwelt in the body of our Lord Jesus Christ... "For in him (Jesus) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." Again we read in 1st Timothy3:16, "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh..." Lest you should still have any doubt, look at John 1:1-2,14... "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." In Revelation 1:8 Jesus professed, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." Show that verse to any Jehovah's Witness who denies that Jesus is "Almighty" God. Likewise, Freemasonry dethrones Jesus Christ as the Almighty God of the entire universe. How wicked and sinful for any professed Christian to join an organization that forbids members from preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ crucified.
Higher Levels Kept Secret to Hide Satanic Organization
Few masons rise above the first few levels, 33rd being the highest level. At the higher levels, members are made aware of the true god of Freemasonry--Lucifer, the angel of light. Each progressive step of Freemasonry is supposed to bring with it a greater enlightenment. But why the secrecy? The word "occult" means hidden; hence, Freemasonry is definitely an occult group. What a sharp contrast from the words of Jesus in John 18:20, "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." What beautiful Words spoken by the Lord... IN SECRET HAVE I DONE NOTHING. Jesus had nothing to hide. Listen friend, the truth doesn't need to be hid. Any organization that wants to keep you in the dark about something is not an organization you should be involved in. Why the secrecy? If they have nothing to hide, then why are they hiding it? We are assured in 2nd Peter 1:20, "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation." Beware of any false prophet, like Pat Robertson, who claims to receive unique messages from God. The same Biblical truths available to you are available to me, and vise versa. God has made His Word freely available to all mankind, and no one has a market on God.
Freemasonry is secretive for good reason, to hide their true devilish roots! Even still, a brief study of famous Freemasons reveals that some of the world's most renowned Satanists, like Albert Pike and Aleister Crowley, were Freemasons.
Crowley was the Master Satanist of the 20th Century
Aleister Crowley was a 33rd degree Freemason! The hierarchy of the Secret-Societies have been deeply involved in the Black-Occult since they have existed. This includes the ritual sacrifice of children and babies. This knowledge has been kept from the minds of society at large until more recently. It is now only a matter of time when the masses of the people become fully aware of the real agenda behind the secret societies and the true purpose of why they exist.
Aleister Crowley - Initiated to the highest levels of Freemasonry and high priest of the Golden Dawn, said: "A white male child of perfect innocence and intelligence makes the most suitable victim."
In the U.S. each year 400,000 children are reported missing.
In the UK 98,000 children are reported missing.
Why would any Christian want to be part of such a vile and wicked organization? 2nd Corinthians 6:14 strictly forbids Freemasonry membership... "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" Listen once again to the precious Words of the Lord Jesus in Luke 11:33... "No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light." Did you get that? Freemasonry requires you to put your candle IN A SECRET PLACE, so others won't see the Light of the Gospel. This is EXACTLY what Satan does--2nd Corinthians 4:4 states, "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." Satan blinds people from seeing THE LIGHT of the glorious Gospel of Christ. Freemasonry does the exact SAME thing because it is Satan's organization. Satan always operates in secrecy, i.e., the occult, because otherwise Christians who love the Word of God would expose him on the spot. There need be no secrecy in the New Testament church.
Soulwinning Not Allowed in Freemason Lodges
If a Christian takes seriously the Great Commission from Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20, he couldn't be comfortable in any organization that forbids witnessing to unbelievers. Freemasonry is just another form of ecumenism, where each lodge member is left to fend for himself concerning what he believes. This cancels any opportunity for soulwinning. Soulwinning is directly opposed to ecumenism. Ecumenism is being united by error; but God commands us as His children to be divided over truth. Ecumenism is willing to sacrifice truth on the alter of compromise. Ecumenism is a vehicle which is headed for a one-world religion (i.e., the beast system). As Christians, we need to catch a different vehicle going the other way... riding the Word of God! Ecumenicalism teaches that there are many ways to God; BUT, in John 14:6 Jesus stated the exact opposite... "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." It's Jesus or Hell, turn or burn! Either turn to the Savior for the forgiveness of your sins, or be condemned to the Lake of Fire for all eternity without hope (John 3:16; Acts 4:10-12; Romans 10:9-13; 2nd Thessalonians 1:8; Revelation 20:15).
Tragically, 37% of the Freemasonry membership in the U.S. are Southern Baptists. Is it any wonder why a Southern Baptist church recently called an ordained lesbian to be their pastor? Freemasonry is a Trojan Horse filled with Satanism.
Because the devil is so subtle, nearly everyone is in the dark concerning the true agenda of Freemasonry, including the members themselves. The fact that seventy-five percent of active masons never advance beyond the third level--in a system consisting of thirty-three degrees--indicates that the ignorant majority at the base of the pyramid are consistently manipulated by the evil minority at the top. Furthermore, unlike the other degrees in the Scottish Rite, the thirty-third degree cannot be earned; it can only be bestowed upon a member by the Supreme Council. Thus the Council controls who becomes a member of the inner circle.
