Many Christians have departed the Masonic ranks after becoming saved. The problem, as they see it, has to do with the secret oath Masons take. It an
issue of idolitry. Whom do you serve first? Does your Masonic oath take presidence over putting God first? Do the Masons promote God as the head of
the church and humanity? (I've read that it is actually Satanism that lies at the heart of the Masonic order.) One of my grandfathers (not the one I
have mentioned) was a total man of God. He raised his family in the Lord and was a Deacon in our church. And yet, a high-ranking Mason. I've often
wondered how he squared that. But then again, if there is any tom-foolery going on within the membership, I am sure it is only at the very highest
levels (top 2%, for example). That excludes even the 33rd degree, I believe.
The problem, as I see it, isn't so much eeevil devil worshipping, but in the way the network works. It is a brotherhood, just like the military or a
fraternity and its members are hard-wired into an immense network. It works like this, Joe Mason, a prominent lawyer gets arrested for beating up his
mistress. His brother Mason, who is the judge finds out Joe Mason is a Mason.. the judge figures out a way, some technicality to let Joe Mason off so
that his wife never finds out and his law practice remains un-harmed. It's like that with fellow veterans of war. I know this because it has gotten
me out of trouble, too. The order is more a leg up, a brotherhood of men who look out for one another and their families.
I know a girl who said she had flat tire one day on the freeway. A truck immediately pulled over and the man jumped out and said, "Miss, can I change
that tire for you?" She smiled at him and said, "Wow, that's nice of you." He then smiled back at her and said, "Miss, I saw the Mason symbol on
the back of your car. I'd be in trouble if I didn't stop and help you." She said she was floored. Her father had been a Mason all her life and she
had never once thought about it. Until that moment. She was quite impressed.
