Preachers, Prophets, Bishops, Deacons, Ushers, Treasures, or anyone else in the church who is a Freemason, Eastern Star or any other branch or sub-branch of freemasonry believe what they have vowed to believe which is that they possess spiritual wisdom that is greatly superior to the teachings of any individual religion. The secret and fraternal organization believed descended from the craft guilds of the stonemasons, open membership to men only represent no single religion or ideology but instead try to foster what they call ‘spiritual development’ and fraternal charity among all classes and creeds. It’s also called The Brotherhood or The Craft and provides a network for business, professional, and social success and advancements. Freemasonry sees itself as the spiritual foundation upon which all other religions have been constructed; therefore, each individual religion has only a partial truth, while Freemasonry contains the whole truth. Freemasonry is a religion- there is no such thing as a “Christian Freemason”. Freemasonry is not a Christian organization, nor is it an organization primarily composed of Christians. There are Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and even Agnostics who are Masons. To be connected to anything that demotes the majesty of God and extracts the Lord out of the 66 Books of the Bible is not an organization that a Pastor, Bishop or any church leader [including community leaders] who profess to love and serve the One True God. This is why MOST PASTORS, BISHOPS, etc. who are Freemasons try by all means to hide their membership from the public.
Freemasons opt to refer to God as Great Architect of the Universe, (GAOTU). In titling God as GAOTU it allows others who don’t believe in the God of the Bible to join together in a universal prayer. This is the equivalent of a believer in Hindu and a follower of Islam trying to pray together without offending each other.
The Preacher Bureau pressed a high ranking Mason about the issue of Christian Pastors praying to GAOTU, listed below was his reply.
“ The GAOTU is an embodiment of whoever an individual mason’s God is. For me, the GAOTU is God, for a Muslim, it would be Allah. The purpose of the GAOTU is so that no mason’s individual God is left out of the lodge.” This means that Exodus 20:3 means absolutely nothing to Freemasons! God said “You are to have no other gods besides me”. Freemasonry clearly leads the way to a One World Religion.
“It [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. It is the base and they [individual religions] are the superstructure. (Albert Pike, “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry”, p. 219)
Freemasonry teaches that their true religion must be mixed with “error” [lying] when it is taught to the masses, so that it can be kept pure for the Adepts! “Religion … must needs be alloyed [mixed] with an amount of error [lying] … the religion of the many must necessarily be more incorrect than that of the refined and reflective few.” (Albert Pike, “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry”, p. 224, Teachings for the 14th Degree) Pike also states that lying is necessary, on page 102, Teaching for the 3rd Degree. “A spirit … that loves wisdom and contemplates the Truth close at hand, is forced to disguise it, to induce the multitudes to accept it … Fictions are necessary to the people …” Freemasonry is a worldwide satanic religion!
**********HISTORY AND LEGEND OF FREEMASONRY*************
Architects and builder-craftsmen have always occupied a place of honor in society, dating back to ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Building symbolizes creation, the raising of an edifice in which to glorify and worship gods and humankind, and correlates to the improvement of the body and mind as a temple for the soul. Perhaps no building in all of history so exemplifies this idea as King Solomon’s temple in ancient Israel. The legends of the temple form the cornerstone of Masonry’s founding, but in order to remove any direct references to Judaism or Christianity, the story concentrates on Hiram Abiff, the architect and builder assigned to the construction. In 1 Kings 7:13-45, the bible tells that Hiram, King of Tyre, sent Solomon a man named Hiram who was highly skilled in bronze work to make all the pillars, vessels, and other decorations necessary for the temple, which he accomplished. The account is repeated in 2 Chronicles 2:13 but Hiram’s talents are here expanded to include work in gold, silver, iron, wood, engraving, and fabrics. The biblical references to Hiram end here, but the Freemasons have Hiram murdered at the hands of three of his workmen when he would not reveal the secret Word of God hidden in the temple structure. In ritual Masons “die” as Hiram Abiff died, and are reborn in the spiritual bonds of Freemasonry. The Hiramic legend can be compared to the worship of Isis and Osiris in the ancient Egyptian mystery schools, another required source for Freemasonry.
Followers of the Isis cult were known as “widows sons”, after the murder of her husband/brother Osiris, and the Masons are also called “sons of the widow”.
Followers of Sufic mysticism believe that the builders of king Solomon’s temple were really Sufi architects incorporating the holy words of God in numerical equivalents expressed in temple measurements, making Freemasonry Arabic in origin. According to this view, the Saxon King Aethelstan [A.D. 894-939] introduced Masonry to England after learning of it from the Spanish Moors. None of these theories/legends can be proven.
[Mathew 24:4 Take heed that no man deceives you]
What are Western missionary’s and preachers really doing when they visit “third world countries”? What gospel of truth is being conveyed to the people in Africa and other parts of the world? When I visit Africa, I’m surrounded by Africans who were influenced to dress like Westerners and partake in the same evil as Westerners do! It’s good to feed the hungry and clothe the naked but the real food that’s needed is the food of truth, holiness and repentance that will clothe us in righteousness!
Western preachers and missionaries who visit these countries and don’t refute evil were not sent by God! Preachers and missionaries in these countries who say “it’s not my calling” to speak against this evil are LIARS and were not sent by God. Ephesians 5:11-12 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. Isn’t Evangelist Juanita Bynum in South Africa? Just asking!
The rites and rituals of this organization is often bizarre and intimidating as”a way of challenging new members, and providing a boast for all those who get beyond the rituals. According to some ex-Freemasons (those who learned it was evil then renounced it) There are hazing initiation pranks that make people believe their heads were going to be chopped off and making them believe that they are drinking goats blood.
Men who are involved in freemasonry should take the time to research the deceptive practices, pagan beliefs, spiritual intimidation, secrecy, and the denial of God’s truth taught by the institution. We urge all men of all religions to remove themselves from the deception of the freemasonry.
