I was thumbing through my bible. I like to read it from time to time. I should read it much more then I do know. I'am wary of freemasonry. But feel
not every mason is a agent evil. I feel that some of the aspects of masonry are not christian consepts. I will give a few scriptures from bible below.
So that their is no confusion I read the KJV. I now many people here use different versions. So lets talk.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest
any man should boast" (Eph. 2:8-9)
"without shedding of blood is no remission" (Hebrews 9:22)
"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight" (Romans 3:20)
Many mason here and on Freemasonrypride.com boast about all the charity masons do. At times it seems that many masons believe that by good works you
can get to heaven. But Hebrews 9:22 tells otherwise.
Freemasonry teachs that the christian honor all faiths even ones that don't believe in God and Jesus Christ. Deny the virgin birth of Jesus, or even
deny that Jesus is the son of God. How can a Christian honor and reverence that?
"I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the
Lord's table, and of the table of devils." (1 Cor. 10:20-21)
"But be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with
unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" (2 Cor. 6:14)
"come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord" (2 Cor. 6:17)
"Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?" (1 Cor. 5:6)
"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist" (1 John 2:23)
"He that commiteth sin is of the devil" (1 John 3:8)
"If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." (Gal. 1:9)
"have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them" (Eph. 5:11)
Freemasonry teaches that all books of
faith, whether or not they deny Christ, are simply additional volumes of the Bible, as though they are, also,
inspired by God
"If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy
city, and from the things which are written in this book." (Rev.22:18-19)
"For we are not as many which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of
God speak we in Christ." (2 Cor. 2:17)
"we have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of
God deceitfully" (2 Cor. 4:2)
Last. It seems that any many who joins the lodge is coming from outer darkness. A true born again christian is not in the dark. He doesn't need any
light from masonry. Can anyone below a Mastor Mason get to heaven? Of course.
"Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ." (Matt. 23:10)
"they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch"
"Ye are the light of the world" (Matt. 5:14)
"light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil...he
that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."
"but the path of the just is as the shining light...the way of the wicked is as darkness" (Proverbs 4:18-19)
"open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins" (Acts
"For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of
the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." (2 Cor. 4:6)
"Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light" (2 Cor. 11:14)
"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light" (Eph. 5:8)
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, either shadow of
turning." (James 1:17)
I got these from the bible and thought these would be a great addition to this discussion. I tend to keep a wary on freemasonry. I think that if you
are a honest born again christian you do not need the light of masonry.
"have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even
to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make
manifest is light." (Ephesians 5:11-13)
he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest" (John 3:21)
"nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come
abroad." (Luke 8:17)
"God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ" (Romans 2:16)
"there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore,
whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear
in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops." (Luke 12:2-3)
"Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world...and in secret have I said nothing. (John 18:20)
There are a number of other reasons that I would stay away from Freemasonry. They write that "the
greatest privilege is that of being recognized before men as a worthy member of the noblest organization
ever perfected by man" (Address to Candidate on Receiving the Third Degree). That is quite a statement.
The Bible teaches that if you exalt yourself, you will be humbled (Matt. 23:12). Of course, the greatest
privilege is to be called a child of God, which we are not worthy of, in ourselves.
There are many other verses but I don't think that masonry is compatiable with christianity. It just my opinion.
