Joseph Smith -who had never been a mason was made a 33rd degree Freemason in one day. Do you know how that happened


Joseph Smith was not a 33 Mason. The 33 is an honorary degree in the Scottish Rite, and Smith was never a member of the Scottish Rite.

Smith did, however, receive the three degrees of Ancient Craft Masonry in one day, along with over a thousand other candidates, most of whom were Mormons. As mentioned above, this mass initiation was irregular and violated Masonic law, which resulted in everyone involved being expelled soon after.

You agree then that Smith was made a Mason - a man who had never been a masom was suddenly a mason leader A man who was a religious leader
Who gave him this honor?
Who took it away?

You said "Smith was never a member of the Scottish Rite"
What Rite was he?
Why were the masons so interested?

Yes, it is a known fact that Smith was made a Mason.

He never became a "mason leader." He received the degree of Master Mason on March 15, 1842, by Bodley Lodge in Nauvoo, Illinois, along with many other Mormons. The Grand Master of Illinois suspended the Lodge's charter and arrested the jewels of its officers because of the irregularities of mass initiation. The Grand Lodge of Illinois approved of the Grand Master's decision during 1843 sessions, and expelled all the parties involved. This was the entire extent of Smith's Masonic career: he never served as a Masonic officer nor did he receive any Masonic honors. He was simply one of many hundreds who were admitted to the fraternity illegally in one Illinois town.

He was a member of the Symbolic Lodge of the York Rite, which is sometimes called "Blue Lodge".


Why were the masons so interested?


Apparently, several officers of that Lodge had become Mormons, and wished to introduce their Mormon brethren into the Lodge. No one knows exactly why. It is even possible that some of the Mormons would believe they would be able to take over the Fraternity and turn it into a Mormon organization. In any case, the non-Mormon members of the Lodge complained to the Grand Master that the Lodge was being infiltrated by polygamists, and the Grand Master acted quickly and decisively.

This was the reason of the long chill between Mormonism and Masonry. For many years following, the Mormon Church became even more anti-Masonic than the Vatican; likewise, the Grand Lodges of Utah and Nevada refused to allow Mormons into Masonry.

Today, the chill has warmed, and Mormons are allowed to become Masons. The Mormon Church, however, continues to be generally anti-Masonic.

I think it's clear that the Mormon religion is a fraud. The Book of Abraham is another book that was supposedly translated by Joseph Smith -- this time from hieroglyphics on ancient papyrus he bought at an antique shop instead of from golden plates. Said to be written by Abraham it would have to be older than the books of Moses (the Torah). Egyptologists studying the original papyrus conclude that it is nothing more than a damaged "Book of Breathings", a pagan document buried with mummies to help them in the afterlife and was probably created around the time of Christ.

As far as a Masonic connection, I doubt it...they don't seem to be the type of people who would be involved in creating a fake religion, but who knows?

There is a connection between Mormonism and FreeMasonry; though probably not in a way that most people think.


Avoid that Mormon nonsense regardless.


All it is, is a racist rip off of Gnostic Christianity.

Total mind control, probably utilized by Zionists.




Peace
