Of course, Masons are taught that the Torah is gnostic and the biblical israelites were gnostics...
Their are no lessons in Masonry that dictate what the Torah may or may not be or whether the Israelites were Gnostics.
Well i do know this is whats taught. The Torah is above the core of all mystical wisdom. Other traditions are speculative; the Torah is directly given
from the creator of the universe to Man; MoSheH, which happens to be HaSheM backwards.
Im not against any other tradition. I think they all add something unique and special to the divine diversity Gd created. However, Torah is central to
mankind. The Jewish people are central; and indeed the greater world is a reflection of their 'world'....
I know Samuel Aen Weor; satanist, mason, etc, a gnostic, teaches a very untrue and mendacious version of Torah. Its completely hilarious in my mind
that anything in the Torah could ever be used to serve the antinomian nature of gnostic philosophy. The Torah talks all the time about performing G-ds
mizvot; which refers to not being Toeva (abhorrent) to god. Not to engage in the pagan practices of the surrounding nations - sex rites, drinking
blood, eating raw flesh (all dionysian type rites), human sacrifice (to Mammon lets say, for the sake of being reincarnated as a rich man etc). All
these are morally evil and perverted actions.
The G-d of Israel, the true G-d, who masons i suppose call the Grand architect of the universe, wants all mankind to follow these restrictions in
human conduct. There needs to be walls; bondaries, and i really do hope this is a belief that masons follow.
Antinomian philosophy; whether that be Jungian psychology, Gnosticism, Theosophy, Sufism, or Sabbatean Kabbalah, is evil, wrong and is an enormously
morally bankrupt mentality that only mocks the idea of unity.
What orthodox Kabbalah teaches is for man to seek G-d and know hm in all your ways. To treat others will love and care; to also hav great fear of the
creator and the restrictions he create; t know hat by sinning in one way youve separated yourself from him; an action as serious and suicidal as
jumping into a fire. You could do it, but you see the consquences
things appear differently becaus of the dominance of the nations; Esau, Chrstendom and Islam, with their hidden pagan values, which causes Gd to
relate to his creation through the attribute of strict judgement.
It takes all of us to change that.
What sickens me to death is the gnostics really are so self absorbed that their spirituality isnt a true care for another; but a care in themselves
that they only realize by seeing it in another. How corrupted and negative this attitude is. Its terrifying stuff; as CG Jung said, christians and
Jews "have rejected the dark God" - the Satan. And look what this belief leads to. Look at what it does.
It forces fiction on reality and dicates to the ignoramuses whats real and whats the image. Thus, in ancient greek "identity and identical are from
the same root; the human and his image are both “that one” (id), in some sense, “the same” (idem). This fundamental confusion and doubling is
virtual reality’s source and the loss of the most essential boundary, self from image, truth from fiction.'"
Also in teresting is the fact that the wood holly is usd as a symbol for truth in heraldry. Meaning hollywood and its fiction making also shapes and
creates 'reality'. In the minds of hollywoods controllers, the lies they purvey are 'truth'. That the lie can lead to truth, that life is just one
long never ending masquarade.
Thank G-d for Torah and the Jewish people and their SANE philosophy.
