Nice rebuttle. We are not talking about going out to eat. Nice try on changing the subject, real nice. We are talking about freemasonry
Albert Pike states the following doctrine concerning Jesus Christ in Chapter 26, or the 26th Degree, "Prince Of Mercy, or Scottish Trinitarian". On
page 562-3, we see that the thought of a Supreme Being unknown to the Human race [God] produced the Universe which "produced the Spirit, the Mother
of the Living, and Wisdom of God. Together with this Primitive Existence, Matter existed also ... eternal ..."
"Buthos and His Thought, uniting with Wisdom, made her fruitful by the Divine Light, and she produced a perfect and an imperfect being, Christos, and
a Second and inferior Wisdom, Sophia-Achamoth, who falling into chaos remained entangled there, became enfeebled, and lost all knowledge of the
Superior Wisdom that gave her birth. Communicating movement to chaos, she produced Ialdaboath, the Demiourgos, Agent of Material Creation ...
Ialdabaoath produced an angel that was his image, and this a second, and son on in succession to the sixth after the Demiourgos ... Ialdabaoath, to
become independent of his mother, and to pass for the Supreme Being, made the world, and man in his own image; and his mother caused the Spiritual
principle to pass from him into man so made; and henceforward the contest between the Demiourgos and his mother, between light and darkness, good and
evil, was concentrated in man."
"And the image of Ialdabaoth, reflected upon matter, became the Serpent-Spirit, Satan, the Evil Intelligence. Eve, created by Ialdabaoth, had by his
Sons children that were angels like themselves. The Spiritual light was withdrawn from man by Sophia, and the world surrendered to the influence of
evil; until the Spirit, urged by the entreaties of Wisdom, induced the Supreme Being to send Christos to redeem it. Compelled, despite himself, by his
Mother, Ialdabaoth caused the man Jesus to be born of a Virgin; and the Celestial Savior, uniting with his Sister, Wisdom, descended through the
regions of the seven angels ... and entered with his sister into the man Jesus at the baptism in Jordan."
"Ialdabaoth, finding that Jesus was destroying his empire and abolishing his worship, caused the Jews to hate and crucify Him; before which happened,
Christos and Wisdom had ascended to the celestial regions. They restored Jesus to life and gave Him an ethereal body, in which He remained eighteen
months on earth, and receiving from Wisdom the perfect knowledge [... Gnosis], communicated it to a small number of His apostles, and then arose to
the intermediate region inhabited by Ialdabaoth, where, unknown to him, He sits at his right hand, taking from him the Souls of Light purified by
Christos. When nothing of the spiritual world shall remain subject to Ialdabaoth, the redemption will be accomplished, and the end of the world, the
completion of the return of Light into the Plenitude, will occur."
I have gone to the effort to reproduce virtually the entire text of these 11/2 pages, from the bottom of page 562 to the top of page 564, so you can
get the full flavor of this text, and so that I cannot be accused of "taking out of context".
Let us now go back to p. 562, at the beginning. We find that:
An unknown God created the Universe with His thought
Thought produced Spirit, who is the Mother of the Living
This Mother of the Living then produced Christos, who was both perfect and imperfect [While this seems contradictory, it is not, to the Pagan way of
thinking. The world is conceived of both Positive and Negative Forces, equal and opposite. Therefore, Christos was both positive and negative in equal
measure. Christos is also known as the Christ Consciousness, the heretical Gnostic invention, against which the early Christian Church struggled
mightily. It literally means the Divine side of Jesus. Rather than Jesus being 100% God and 100% Man at the same time, as the Bible teaches,
Freemasonry teaches that Jesus was a human being only; at the time of the baptism in the River Jordan, the Christ Consciousness descended upon Jesus,
making Him the Messiah, and then left Him at the cross. But, always, there are two distinct entities, Jesus Man and the Christ Consciousness Divinity.
John identifies this separation of Jesus Man and His Godhood as the spirit of Antichrist.]
Then, Mother of the Living produced a Second, and inferior, wisdom, Sophia-Achamoth, who produced Ialdabaoth, after she had lost all of her Superior
Wisdom. So, Ialdabaoth was definitely of an inferior rank.
Then, Ialdabaoth created seven angels, but still felt dependent upon his Mother, setting off a contest of wills between them, which was identified as
the conflict between good and evil.
Then, the image of Ialdabaoth reflected upon matter and became the Serpent-Spirit, Satan the Evil Intelligence. Thus, Ialdaboath created Satan.
Ialdaboath then created Eve
This created world then fell into the influence of evil
Then, God the unknown Supreme Being, sent the Christ Consciousness into this world in order to redeem it.
Then, despite his objections, Ialdabaoth was forced by his Mother to conceive Jesus in the womb of the Virgin. (Remember, Jesus' lineage, in this
teaching, was of an Inferior line. Note also that Ialdabaoth created both Jesus and Satan.
When Jesus was 30 years old, the Christ Consciousness and Wisdom descended into Jesus the man while He was being baptized in the River Jordan.
Ialdabaoth then turned upon Jesus The Christ and instigated his death on the cross.
At Jesus' death, the Christ Consciousness and Wisdom left Jesus' body and went back into the celestial regions.
The Christ Consciousness and Wisdom then restored Jesus to life, but gave him an ethereal body, not a physical one. (Jesus must have been a liar,
because in Like 24:34-43, Jesus appeared to the disciples after His Resurrection; when the disciples thought they were seeing a spirit, not a fleshly
body, Jesus emphatically stated that He was a body of "flesh and bones". He invited them to touch Him and then He ate fish, which a spirit could not
do. This Freemason teaching makes Jesus a liar.)
Then, Jesus remained on earth 18 months in his celestial body, receiving further instruction from Wisdom, which he passed on to his disciples. (Ditto
above discussion on the spirit "body". This last segment about Jesus receiving instruction from Wisdom, is blasphemy, because Jesus, as God, knows
everything from before He created the earth. He needs no instruction on any matter. Again, Jesus is blasphemed by making Him appear less than He is.)
Finally, after 18 months, Jesus arose to the region inhabited by Ialdabaoth, where he sat down at the right hand of Ialdabaoth, even though Ialdabaoth
does not realize Jesus is sitting there. (This makes no sense, to think that a Superior Being as Ialdabaoth could not know that Jesus is sitting at
his right hand on his throne!)
Jesus' function ever since has been to capture Souls of Light as they are purified by the Christos, the Christ Consciousness. (Again, Jesus is
blasphemed, because this teaching takes the salvation of souls away from Jesus God, and places them in the Christ Consciousness. Masonic teaching
separates the physical, bodily Jesus from His Office of Messiah -- which they call Christ Consciousness -- making Jesus less than God. Where does it
say that people will come who will try to separate Jesus' fleshly body from His God Nature? 1 John 4:3, states that those who try to deny that Jesus,
the Messiah God, has come in the flesh is of the Antichrist. The original language literally means those people who would seek to separate Jesus God
from the Jesus Man are of the Antichrist. This is exactly what this teaching does.)
It is difficult to list all the ways this Pagan teaching does damage to the Biblical account. During the above recounting of this teaching, I included
some facts in parenthesis. But, I did not cover all the ground that needs to be covered concerning the blasphemy that this Masonic teaching does to
Whereas the Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is equal to the Father and has coexisted with Him from Eternity Past, this Masonic teaching states that
God created the Universe and then created other beings, culminating with Ialdabaoth. This Ialdaboath then created other beings, including Eve. Eve was
created before Jesus, according to this spurious Masonic teaching! This teaching further denies that Jesus was the Creator of all things as John 1:3
In this world, called Earth, conflict erupted between Ialdabaoth and his Mother, starting the conflict between "Good" and "Evil". The Bible states
that the conflict between good and evil began when Satan, speaking through the serpent, deceived Eve, who then convinced Adam to sin against God.
Then, to "redeem" mankind and this earth, God sent the Christ Consciousness and his sister, Wisdom, to the earth to raise the inhabitants of the
earth to a higher level of spiritual consciousness, thus putting an end to this conflict. The Bible states that Jesus had determined to go to the
Cross before He ever created this world. Jesus was not killed by a superior outside enemy; rather, Jesus went to the Cross according to His own plan
to redeem mankind.
With God and his Mother putting a lot of pressure on Ialdaboath to fix his world Ialdaboath somehow created Satan by "reflecting on his image". The
Bible states that Satan was a created being, created by God.
Finally, Ialdabaoth "caused the man Jesus to be born of a Virgin"!! Ialdabaoth created both Satan and Jesus!! Does that make them brothers? Does
this sound like Mormonism? This teaching that Ialdaboath created both Satan and Jesus does, indeed, make them brothers, another blasphemy against
Jesus! Jesus is God, infinitely greater than Satan. This teaching makes them equal, but opposite, another common Pagan teaching.
When Jesus was being baptized in Jordan, the Christ Consciousness and his Sister, Wisdom, descended from heaven to earth, to overpower the man, Jesus,
making him Messiah. This is simply another blasphemy against Jesus God. The Bible states that men can be possessed by a demon, who can overpower them,
making them do things that no one in their right mind would do. This blasphemous smells of demonic possession, another slight against Jesus. No demon,
or hosts of demons, can ever defeat Jesus Christ. As John said, "Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world."
After reviewing these blasphemous teachings about Jesus Christ, I ask the question, "How can any knowledgeable Christian become a Mason?" Perhaps
you are a Mason that has not been exposed to these teachings of the 26th Degree, and had no idea these teachings existed. But, now you know, and you
will know much more in coming weeks; so, what are you going to do now? Are you going to stay a Mason?
I am drawn to Daniel 7:25, "And he [Antichrist] will speak great words against the Most High God ..." Are these Masonic teachings another example of
Biblical Prophecy being fulfilled in these Last Days?
Stay with us next week, as we discuss more teachings from Albert Pike's "Morals and Dogma", the most heralded and respected of all Masonic books.
We shall hear Freemasons "In Their Own Words".
